Even air isn’t free

There are many shared hosts that offer free hosting, and dedicated servers are often advertised at surprisingly low monthly costs. One thing remains constant with all web hosting companies: you get what you pay for, and offers that seem to good to be true usually are. Web hosting costs have come down a lot in recent years, but usually lower cost means lower value. In a network operations center, even air isn't free. Dedicated server power supplies get hot and need to be cooled.  Air conditioning is a major expense for data centers, and that expense should be part of what makes up your monthly web hosting cost. Don't limit your search when searching for a host. Cheap hosting companies are cheap for a reason, and usually that means cheap service. In most cases it is better to pay a bit more for value, and choose a web host that has a 100% network uptime guarantee, premium bandwidth,  and always available support services that respond to your questions in a timely manner.

Locked out. What is KVM?

When you lock yourself out of your car or house it is easy enough to call a locksmith;  locking yourself out of your dedicated server is a whole different level of frustration. It is easier than you think.  All it takes is one mistake when configuring a software-based firewall, and then you are no longer able to log into your server as root Administrator. The easiest way to address this is with KVM access to your server.  KVM is short for Keyboard Video Mouse, it gives you a separate IP to access your server and launches a Java-based screen that is like you are virtually standing in front of a video console plugged into your server.  KVM also gives you the ability to remotely power cycle your server at anytime, via the same separate IP address. Many of the dedicated server solutions available at PingPipe include KVM and remote reboot f0r free. On the internet, having redundancy  is very important. Let me repeat that: on the internet, having redundancy is very important. Suppport services are always available to physically reboot your dedicated server at the network level, the free KVM that is included on PingPipe dedicated server specials is a great value-added bonus of also always having an alternate way to reach the login prompt of your dedicated server. Visit pingpipe.com to check out all of the current dedicated server specials that include your own KVM with remote reboot and free setup !
