Back in March, we first brought up the topic of server monitoring on our blog. In our initial post we explained how server monitoring works, identified some common monitoring metrics and explained who can benefit from it. To build off of that initial introduction to server monitoring, today we will discuss 5 server monitoring best practices to help you protect your website, email, data, application, or whatever else you may be housing on your server.
If you aren’t using the WordPress content management system (CMS) to manage your website, you should be. WordPress is incredibly easy to use, offers all the tools you need, and best of all, is an open source platform. You read that correctly. The world’s most popular CMS platform is free to use! If you aren’t using WordPress to manage your site, here are 14 reasons you need to make the switch today.
File storage is something everyone needs. Being able to keep up with data, media, documents, etc. is a critical part of daily life – especially at work. Using servers for file storage has become increasingly popular. We’ve written before about the many ways servers can be used. In this post, we’ll explain why these file servers are becoming more and more the norm.
We all understand the importance of server security. Server monitoring is a very important part of keeping your site, email or app online. It helps you know if your server experiences issues or if the performance changes suddenly. The reason this matters is because any drastic or abrupt changes in server activity can knock you offline. There are also instances where these changes are actually caused by malicious activity, such as hacking or DDoS attacks. Server monitoring is a great step towards protecting yourself from that.
There are many ways businesses and individuals use servers. In most of these cases, this involves storing a tremendous amount of data – some of which is probably not intended for public knowledge. Many servers also power business websites, email platforms and even applications. Regardless of how a server is being used, unauthorized access to that server is no laughing matter. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 10 ways to help keep your server safe.
When servers work as expected, no one notices that they’re there. The minute a server stops fulfilling its duty, it can seem like the sky is falling. Many businesses – especially small businesses – live and die by the performance of their servers. That’s why choosing the right server and the appropriate configuration is so important.
Servers should be reliable, obviously. Business owners should also expect their servers to be secure, efficient and scalable. Secure servers protect company data and can regulate many business functions. Efficient server utilization helps keep costs where they should be. Scalable servers enable businesses to grow into themselves and can also help with daily operation. They’re there to help the business, not disrupt it.
This is what you see when you Google “what is open-source?”
What Do We Think Open-Source Means?
This is a perfectly fine definition for explaining open-source software, but it is fairly vague. There is more to open-source than many people realize.
Once upon a time, one of the biggest design challenges that developers encountered while building a website was optimizing content for different desktop-based browsers. With the advent of today’s mobile technology, the focus of website design has shifted dramatically to accommodate the myriad of different smartphones and tablets on the market. Millions of people access the web via their mobile devices daily, and that number is growing; studies indicate that mobile browsing is poised to become even more prevalent than desktop-based web viewing in the next couple of years. If your website is more than three years old, or if you have yet to redesign it to make it mobile-friendly, you are probably missing out on a massive and ever-growing segment of your potential viewing audience.
Hello, Friends! I hope you are all doing great.
The internet is a wonderful thing. On the other hand, there are drawbacks, as there are with any good thing. Your whole identity is on the internet. Many of us use online banking and pay our bills on the internet. Proper precautions must be taken when it comes to security. I’d like to pass along some information about password security in general.
