According to surveys, 68% of the internet runs on Linux. So, if you have a website, chances are that it runs on a Linux server.
From big cloud providers to small VPS providers sell servers that run Linux by default.
The trouble is, a lot of website owners are not familiar with Linux as they use Windows or iOS in their laptop.
This unfamiliarity leads to a poorly maintained server that becomes vulnerable to malware, hackers and resource bottlenecks. (more…)
Here at Bobcares, we help Website owners, SaaS providers and Hosting companies run highly reliable web services.
One way we achieve that is by having server experts monitor production servers 24/7 and quickly resolving any issue that can affect uptime.
Recently, engineers at our 24×7 monitoring service noticed that a site hosted by our customer in a Docker server was offline. (more…)
Way back in 2016 we posted about how to setup Free SSL certs using Let’s Encyrpt CA.
The internet has come a long way since then, and Let’s Encrypt is almost the default SSL option for many websites.
Even so, a slight annoyance with Let’s Encrypt was its inability to support wilcard certificates. (more…)
“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”
It’s a common sense advice, and many IT managers use this to explain why their infrastructure isn’t virtualized yet. Server virtualization technologies have been around for more than a decade now, but some businesses prefer the proven reliability of good ol’ dedicated servers. (more…)
24/7 tech support is pretty much the standard in web hosting and allied industries.
Customers will need support at 3:00 am in the morning, on a Sunday, or even on New Years eve. (more…)
On March 28th, Drupal disclosed a Highly Critical vulnerability in Drupal core (CVE-2018-7600) that was dubbed Drupalgeddon 2 (Drupalgeddon 1 happened in 2014)
Drupal version 7.x and 8.5.x was affected by this vulnerability, and allowed remote attackers to infect the site with malicious code.
If you have an online business, you’ll need a server.
And we know servers can be expensive to own an operate. But are you spending more than you really need to? (more…)
24/7 support is pretty much a minimum requirement in web hosting and allied industries.
Customers may need tech support at 2:00 am in the morning, on a Saturday, or even on Christmas night.
But of course, you need your time off, and that’s why it is important to find a tech support partner. A help desk support company that can take care of your customers when you are away.
Google blacklists up to 6,000 websites EVERY DAY for serving malware. Almost all of these sites are classified as “compromised sites”, which means it was infected with malware without the knowledge of the site owner.
A malware infection could lead to loss in SEO ranking, and business reputation. Building back the site traffic could take weeks, if not months.
Running a business can be immensely rewarding.
But it can also be immensely exhausing, especially in an industry like Web Hosting or Digital Marketing.
Customers would call you right in the middle of a family dinner, or servers would go down while you are travelling.
There’s always a time in each web host’s life, when they decide, “Enough is enough. I must get someone to take care of all this.”
