Server monitoring services are a dime a dozen. You get an alert when a service (HTTP, SMTP, etc.) goes down. But is that enough for you to keep your server safe and secure?
What if your server is vulnerable to a new software bug, or what if someone is trying to brute force your password? Wouldn’t you want to know, and take action?
That is why Server Security Monitoring is important. (more…)
Maintaining a server is hard.
You have to deal with all the upgrades, security patches and the occassional server errors (aka errors from hell). (more…)

These days you can get a server from AWS or Azure in as little as 15 minutes.
And not surprisingly, many business owners now use a VPS or Cloud instance to host their website or business apps.
The trouble is, these servers are sold as “unmanaged” instances, and the burden of Server Management & Monitoring falls on the server owner. (more…)
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 hosters, everyone sells Linux servers 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…)
In the world of eCommerce, security is paramount. Fear of fraud continues to keep millions of consumers from shopping online. SSL Certificates give you an easy, cost-effective way to protect your visitors and earn their trust. (more…)
SSL certificates are costly. Or, used to be.
Now, website owners have a free, totally reliable option to setup HTTPS for their websites : Let’s Encrypt
Let’s Encrypt is a Certificate Authority that provides valid SSL certificates for free.
The downside is that, it can be a bit hard to setup – especially if you’re new to command lines.
