January 18, 2012 by FindMyHost News · Comments Off on Hosting Customers Get an Increased 100% Uptime Guarantee and Network Enhancements from Codero
Web Hosting Services – Lenexa, Kan. – Codero demonstrates its commitment to customer needs by updating its network. A leading provider of dedicated, managed, and cloud hosting, Codero recognizes their services are mission critical to their customers’ business success, which is why they are constantly making upgrades to their network. The latest updates include an additional Tier1 bandwidth provider, increased network capacity with a 10Gbps expansion, as well as an increased 100% guaranteed network uptime.
“Our customers have told us that they ‘just want it to work,’ our network that is” says Ryan Elledge, Chief Operation Officer for Codero. “Our network engineering team monitors our network around the clock routing traffic as necessary to make certain our customers’ servers always have access to the internet. Past experiences have shown that sometimes, despite all efforts, systems fail. When they do, we are able to learn from those experiences and put additional measures in place to avoid similar issues in the future. Increasing our guaranteed network uptime to 100% is our way of showing our customers that we understand they can’t afford downtime and we make every effort to make that a reality.”
To bolster their existing network, Codero has increased network connectivity three fold by replacing existing Gigabit Ethernet connections with 10Gbps fiber optic connections with upstream providers. This conversion culminates the 10Gbps expansion within the data centers that Codero began rolling out in 2011. In additional to converting existing circuits, Codero partnered with Tier1 bandwidth provider XO Communications to increase redundancy and reduce latency for customers.

July 26, 2011 by FindMyHost News · Comments Off on Codero Announces New Dashboard and Other Customer Portal Enhancements
Hosting Services – Lenexa, Kan. – Doing business with Codero is easier than ever thanks to enhancements the company made to its online portal including a new and improved dashboard. The provider of optimized infrastructure created the Codero Server Portal v2 to be a one-stop place for customers to manage their hosting accounts and give them exclusive access to information related to Codero’s products and services. The tool is still receiving positive feedback from customers six months after its release and Codero continues to refine it to make it even better.
Codero first revamped its global customer portal in November, 2010 to enhance the customer experience. Over the last few months, the Codero Development team listened to customer suggestions and relied upon more feedback to make even more improvements. Below is a highlight of some of the major changes just released:
– Improved Dashboard. The new dashboard redesign increases overall usability, design and navigation. It makes it easier to find messages, tickets, invoices and services to manage Codero accounts from a single web page. Visibility to bandwidth usage is even more immediate and a Twitter feed has been included.
– New SMS Service Notifications. Customers can sign up with the new SMS service to receive service notifications in the event of an emergency. There are now three methods to receive emergency alerts: SMS, email or instant messenger. Customers can also follow @CODERONOC for service-related Codero messages.
– Revamped Payment Method. Managing payment options has been streamlined for simplicity with more functionality. The functionality to edit existing payment methods and delete outdated payment information is now available.
– DNS Management Improvements. The entire DNS Management section was rewritten to provide bulk modifications of DNS records through the online portal. We have also extended the functionality to provide support for long data records, such as Domain Keys, and IPv6 in preparation for the IPv6 roll out at Codero.
Nicholas Gaugler, Vice President of Development and Engineering at Codero, said, “Customer experience is what drives Codero to continually improve not only Server Portal v2, but every piece of software we develop and integrate. We want to encourage engagement so we can personally help our customers succeed with their hosting solutions. We will continue to deliver additional features and functional enhancements to Server Portal v2 to make it even more valuable for Codero customers.”
In the coming months, Codero will have new functionality on the service page. The enhancement will give customers the ability to see available upgrades and downgrades to their existing packages and schedule those changes, during a maintenance window of their choice, directly from Server Portal v2.

July 5, 2011 by FindMyHost News · Comments Off on Small Businesses Can Reduce IT Expenses and Improve Operational Cash Flow Thanks to Codero’s Proactive Move to Assist Them With A New Offer
Hosting Services – Lenexa, Kan. – With the introduction of a government small business lending program on the horizon, Codero is taking actions to help small- to medium-sized businesses save money recognizing that all businesses might not be able to take advantage of the lending program. Disbursement of the government funds from its signature small-business lending program are expected soon. Lenders must have less than $10 billion in assets to participate.
Codero specializes in building custom IT solutions for businesses ranging from dedicated server hosting and server management to cloud computing. The optimized infrastructure provider is lowering the price on one of the most in demand servers. While supplies last, Codero’s configured Intel i7 Quad Core 2.8 GHz, is now $110/month. Codero’s list price for this configuration is $270 and has been on special in recent months for as low as $135 per month but required an annual pre-payment.
According to Marketing Director Shelby Garlock, “Dropping the price further on this popular server and removing any pre-payment term is just one way we are helping businesses with their budgeting. It makes it easy for them to boost their IT systems and improve their cash flow without taking on new debt. There are no pre-payment requirements for this special, and there are never any contracts with Codero. We also are extending our current free 12TB special which removes the worry over a variable monthly expense in a business’s operational budget.”
The i7 is a favored configuration because it maximizes speed for demanding applications and can dynamically accelerate performance to match one’s workload with quad core clock-speeds of 2.8GHz. It also boasts the Intel Smart Cache which provides a more efficient cache subsystem optimized for industry leading multi-threaded games.
Intel i7 Quad Core 2.8 GHz server features include:
– 4 GB
– 250 GB SATA2
– RAM upgradable to 16 GB
– 12 TB monthly transfer at no extra cost

May 19, 2011 by FindMyHost News · Comments Off on Codero Shows How Cloud Hosting Is Eco-friendly inside a New Infographic
Webmaster Toolbox – Lenexa, Kansas – With its launch of Cloud hosting services, Codero is further reinforcing its commitment to sustainable practices along with providing customers with an affordable way to scale their IT resources. Cloud hosting service is a beneficial IT strategy for those who rely upon a hosting service and need the ability to scale based on load, but also want to control costs. Codero’s latest infographic demonstrates how the cloud saves money while meeting sustainable business practices.
Cloud is an alternative to running all applications within a traditional data center and is very energy-efficient as depicted by the infographic. A 2011 study by Microsoft determined large companies running applications in the Cloud can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by 30%, while small businesses could achieve even greater energy savings … up to 90% per user.
Said Shelby Garlock, Director, Marketing of Codero, “At Codero, we are committed to providing the latest technology to our customers while keeping their costs down and maintaining sustainable business practices. This infographic powerfully demonstrates how our new Cloud offering achieves both.”
Cloud computing addresses the environmental issues by reducing data center real estate requirements and driving down power and cooling costs involved. The operational flexibility of Cloud, combined with its cost savings, is a benefit to those needing two or multiple servers. Paying for service on demand requires less upfront capital. Businesses can ramp up or down based upon current needs, which is one reason demand for Cloud is on the rise. A Gartner survey stated 39% of respondents worldwide indicated they allocated IT budgets to Cloud as a key initiative this year.
A leading provider of optimized infrastructure, Codero creates flexible and scalable environments using dedicated, managed and cloud hosting. All Codero services and products are backed by SAS 70 Type II secure data centers, live 24/7/365 U.S.-based support and a seasoned staff with international experience in the hosting business for over 15 years.
