In the early days of the Internet, we used to have a couple of passwords for important online properties (email, website, etc.). But as technologies evolved, we are now creating hundreds of passwords, some of which we rarely use more than once or twice.
Creating and managing secure passwords for different services can be impractical in the long run…at least without the assistance of a password management tool.
If you’ve been keeping your passwords written on the side of your desk or saving them in a text file on your device – you should stop immediately.
Password management tools are there for the rescue…
Data backups are an essential part of operating a website. Disaster can strike at any time, and if something happens to your website data – you need to recover swiftly.
Today we’ll be sharing more about this essential activity in web operations and the various ways data backups can save your website.
The first part of the 21st century saw the World Wide Web grow at break-neck speeds. The number of active internet users shot up, and so did the number of hours people spend online. In light of all this, you probably won’t be too surprised to find that the web hosting industry was also doing rather well.
In early 2020, however, the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and ruined quite a lot of people’s plans.
But how did this affect the hosting business?
Today, we are taking a closer look at one of the hottest topics in the last two years.
To say that the global economy wasn’t prepared for the Covid-19 pandemic would be an understatement. For example, in the US, the unemployment rates shot up to 14.8% in April 2020 – the highest level ever since data collection started in 1948.

Offering a top-tier web hosting service inevitably costs money – a good amount of it. Aside from hardware and software costs, the expertise to implement everything into a working system also comes into play. Because of this, a Free plan might not be so free after all.
Moving from shared hosting to a Virtual Private Server (VPS) is likely one of the highlights of a website owner’s digital journey. These advanced server plans are robust, feature-packed, and performance-optimized.
Yet, even when you’ve moved to VPS, there are more upgrade options if you need them.
