How Clustered Hosting Keeps You Out of Trouble !?

August 5th, 2014

When it comes to the pros and cons of single server hosting and clustered hosting, clustered hosting is definitely on the winning side.

 

Here’s why clustered hosting can keep you out of harm.

 

Single Server Hosting:

 

X Single Point Failure – a part of the system which if it fails, the whole system will stop working and cease operation.

X Limited Capacity for Traffic: Your website resources might exceed at anytime.

X Periodic Reboots for any Upgrades

X Website Crashes due to High or Sudden Bursts of Website Traffic or Exceeding Resource Space

X The risk of malicious access due to other websites sharing the same server.

 

Clustered Hosting:

 

v Single point failure does not exist – if one server fails, the other servers will serve as a backup.

v Flexibility to scale up or scale down depending on your needs of resources.

v Constant availability – website continues to be available even if there’s an upgrade.

v Reliable in terms of balance loading of resources spreads out through the servers.

v Better security with the presence of a dedicated firewall to protect and screen your incoming and outgoing data.

 

Conclusion? Clustered Hosting provides a better safety net than single server hosting when it comes to managing your website. Multiple servers allow your website to be available to your viewers around the clock, hence the capacity to provide 24/7 service.

SiteLock Is Like The Life Saving Tsunami Alerts!

October 17th, 2012

Exabytes SiteLock is Like a Tsunami Alert

After the terrible destruction and painful aftermath of Tsunami in Asia, many countries including Malaysia are now taking all the necessary steps to prevent the destruction of Tsunami. Humans cannot prevent Tsunami from happening, but we can always do our part by taking important precautions when signs of imminent Tsunami are present.

For example, when Indonesia experiences earthquake, Malaysia will issue an alert / warning to all Malaysians that a Tsunami is imminent so that everyone stays away from the seaside. Unfortunately, alerts are sometimes ignored by a small number of people who fail to take precaution for their own safety.

Come to think of that, SiteLock is rather similar to Tsunami alerts in many ways. Just like the alerts for Tsunami, SiteLock warns website owners about the vulnerabilities on their websites so that they can take actions to prevent the destruction such as hacking or other malicious attacks.

 

Some similarities between SiteLock and Tsunami alerts:

Tsunami Alerts SiteLock
1 Tsunami alerts are effective in preventing human casualty and property destruction. SiteLock is an effective tool to prevent hacking or other malicious attacks.
2 Tsunami alerts warn people of imminent Tsunami, but needs cooperation from the people such as stay away from the seaside to effectively prevent casualty. SiteLock alerts users of potential hacking and attacks, but needs cooperation from its users to fix the vulnerability to effectively prevent the terrible consequences.
3 Tsunami alerts are effective. However, the responsibility to take necessary precautions rests on the people themselves. SiteLock is a great tool to prevent hacking or other attacks. However, the responsibility to fix vulnerabilities rests on its users.

 

So act NOW! Sign up for SiteLock and play your part in kicking out hackers from your website and preventing other malicious attacks!

SiteLock Is Like a House Alarm System!

September 26th, 2012

What happens when you forget to close your house door? The outcome might be devastating as thieves or other ill-intentioned people will take the advantage to break in and steal valuables from your home.

A website without SiteLock is similar to a house without an alarm system! Moreover, since hacking directed to steal your customers’ financial / personal details is usually automated, a website without SiteLock is even MORE VULNERABLE than a house without an alarm system!

Similarities between SiteLock and a house alarm:

A house alarm SiteLock
1 When a house is installed with an alarm, it will ring / alert the house owner if the door is not closed properly.  If SiteLock finds any weakness or vulnerability which exposes the website to hacking in the future, it will alert the website owner via email and SiteLock control panel. 
2 With this alert, house owner will need to take action to close and lock the door properly so that it does not give thieves the advantage to break in.  With SiteLock, website owner will need to log into SiteLock control panel to fix the vulnerability.
3 There are possibilities that the house owner did not lock the door properly and still there is no break-in. Even if an alarm system is installed, it will not be able to prevent break-ins completely; but it definitely helps to reduce the possibilities.  If website owners follow the instructions to fix vulnerabilities, the possibilities of hacking will reduce significantly. Even if SiteLock is installed, it does NOT guarantee that the website will not be hacked.

SiteLock works wonders in protecting your website and the P&C information of your customers. It ALERTS you whenever your website has vulnerabilities by recommending all the solutions you need to keep the risk of being attacked to the minimum.

Last but not least, it helps to increase your online sales as whenever the sign of SiteLock is spotted on a website, customers know that they can shop with confidence and a piece of mind!
