November 4, 2015 by admin · Comments Off on GlowHost Delivers Superior Safety and Security Services Through Free Upgrade
STUART, FLORIDA – In the company’s ever-increasing effort to provide a superior hosting service to its customers, Stuart, FL based GlowHost announced this week the inclusion of the McAfee Secure Trustmark security suite in all tiers of service. The upgrade is available to both new and existing customers and is fully optional and customizable.
“Customers now have the option of accessing McAfee Secure Trustmark right from their GlowHost control panel,” said company CEO Matt Lundstrom, adding that users have the option of turning it on or off at any time and displaying its marker on any page of any website.
“Safety is a huge concern for our customers as well as their site visitors,” Lundstrom said. “McAfee Secure Trustmark increases engagement by showing visitors that your site is safe.”
That level of confidence is especially important for sites that routinely handle sensitive customer data, particularly ecommerce sites or those that deal regularly with onsite monetary transactions.
“When the customer sees that ‘buy’ button, they need to be able to trust that their information is secure,” Lundstrom said. “Trustmark adds a layer of trust that leads to fewer cart abandonments and increased revenues.”
McAfee Secure Trustmark performs both daily and weekly scans to detect more than 12,000 known vulnerabilities. The entire process is executed remotely without the need for additional hardware. Only when a client’s website is certified to meet McAfee’s strict security standards is the actual trustmark icon is displayed. “It’s not just a picture inserted into a page,” Lundstrom said. “If the trustmark appears on the site, the site is certified secure by McAfee. Period.”
Since its inception in 1987, McAfee has grown to become the world’s largest dedicated security company and has been one of the most trusted names in Internet security for more than two decades. The inclusion of this latest and most powerful suite of security applications is helping to position GlowHost as a leader in web hosting services for every hosting need from individuals to businesses of any size or description.
“Check with many of our competition and you’ll find that Trustmark is offered as a premium upgrade. At GlowHost, we’ve decided that it’s a valuable enough addition to make it available across the board at no extra charge,” Lundstrom said.
Those with questions about McAfee Secure Trustmark or are interested in signing up with GlowHost for industry-leading web hosting services are encouraged to contact customer support via the corporate website: https://glowhost.com.
“We want as many people to learn firsthand why customers think we make some of the big players in web hosting look like amateurs,” Lundstrom said.

May 28, 2014 by admin · Comments Off on Approved Web Host Hostwinds Joins i2Coalition
Hostwinds, LLC., a web hosting company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is staffed by a group of individuals who daily fuel their commitment to generate the highest level of service and support in the industry. Hostwinds is a motivated and driven team that strives to remain ahead of the competition by living the promise to Provide and Truly Serve.
Hostwinds was founded in 2010 and quickly moved forward into the marketplace with the purpose of changing the hosting industry and introducing a new set of standards. We observed other hosting companies around the globe, studied their successes and mistakes. We observed a saturated industry with some hosting companies offering incredibly low pricing, but sub-standard service and support. Others offered great service and support, but charged a premium price.
Our passion grew to improve upon how a hosting company should truly operate and support their clients. We quickly began to design solutions so we could address the flaws in both models and develop one logical solution. We became experts in this industry and learned what it really costs to provide great hosting services. We took the best of two extremes and formed it into one great company who believes in their clients, works hard to help them excel and fights for any cause that will help their ideas develop and grow freely in the internet marketplace.
Hostwinds has grown steadily and learned quickly that the consistent pursuit of a specific set of standards and practices is the main thread that holds many great organizations together. This pursuit is also a magnet which attracts organizations and businesses to each other. As Hostwinds began to study and appreciate the mission of the i2Coalition, it was only natural for our organization to bind our common threads of belief with theirs to help propel the collective best interests of an industry, its professionals and users to insure an accurate and educated voice is heard.

Bitcoin Accepting Web Host Redefines The Market By Offering New Features That Bundle Performance and Privacy
April 1, 2014 by admin · Comments Off on Bitcoin Accepting Web Host Redefines The Market By Offering New Features That Bundle Performance and Privacy
Cheyenne, WY — BitcoinWebHosting.net, a company that has led the way in hosting solutions for the Bitcoin community, has completely rebranded their site and announced new plans, new features, and a string of services that aim to blend privacy and performance into one straightforward solution.
“Since we opened our doors we have been constantly working on expanding our network, capabilities, infrastructure and product line,” says Robert Lons, CEO and co-founder of BitcoinWebHosting.net. “Call it our relentless pursuit of perfection: we work hard to earn your business, and even harder to keep it.”
BitcoinWebHosting.net has a long list of plans going forward, including a true cloud-platform that will allow customers to instantly provision a VPS in the location they choose, right from their iPhone or Android. And of course, they’ll be able to pay with Bitcoin.
The new services recently added to the site include shared hosting plans from $5 per month and Business-class shared hosting that comes with a free SSL, domain and dedicated IP.
Robert Lons, had this to add: “I truly believe that 2014 will be a big year for Bitcoin. More businesses are coming around every day, and people are starting to understand how technologically amazing Bitcoin is. What we have done is create a Bitcoin-friendly hosting platform that is secure and reliable, where people can safely host their sites, and hopefully give back to the Bitcoin ecosystem themselves.”
While much of the media coverage surrounding Bitcoin tends to miss the point, education is helping clear up confusion and uncertainty. This has lead to more merchants making the decision to start accepting Bitcoin. As BitPay’s merchant directory clearly shows, there are a wide range of businesses who accept Bitcoin, including Overstock.com.
Fraud is another reason merchants are deciding to accept Bitcoin. Payment solutions like PayPal and traditional merchant services often place the onus of dealing with chargebacks and false claims on the business owner. This type of fraud is common and can not only be costly for merchants, but time consuming as well.
Bitcoin removes these particular fraud risks by allowing frictionless payments that are irreversible. In other words, chargebacks don’t exist. While some argue that this offers less protection for consumers, the reality is it reduces costs for merchants, which gets passed on to consumers.
Bitcoin uses a public ledger system to facilitate payments around the globe. The Blockchain, as this public ledger is called, removes trust from the equation and uses math to verify transactions. This ability gives merchants protection from fraud, and because Bitcoin acts like digital cash, it removes the need for consumers to hand over personal details during checkout. At a time when privacy concerns have become the hot issue around the globe, a system that allows consumers to keep their privacy is only going to become more valuable.
BWH is the leader in bitcoin hosting solutions, offering unparalleled performance, exceptional support, and a platform that puts the power of privacy in the hands of their customers. BitcoinWebHosting.net offers shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers and DDoS protection, and allows customers to sign up with only an email. No personal details required. Privacy Respected. Bitcoin Accepted.
January 2, 2014 by admin · Comments Off on 80% of your success comes from 20% of your effort
Let’s face it, running your online business or hobby site requires a lot of time. Since time is a premium, you should focus your efforts on the tasks that bring in the most revenue for your business.
That’s why you should focus on the Pareto principle:
The Pareto principle states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
Business-management consultant Joseph M. Juran suggested the principle and named it after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed in 1906 that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population; Pareto developed the principle by observing that 20% of the pea pods in his garden contained 80% of the peas.
It is a common rule of thumb in business; e.g., “80% of your sales come from 20% of your clients”. Mathematically, the 80-20 rule is roughly followed by a power law distribution (also known as a Pareto distribution) for a particular set of parameters, and many natural phenomena have been shown empirically to exhibit such a distribution.
So how can you use the Pareto Principle to make more money?
1. Stop being a server admin.
Yeah, it’s fun to install, configure, and troubleshoot applications you want for your website. However, doing this is zapping your effectiveness. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been dragged into productivity killing tasks involving troubleshooting web applications I’ve installed or my employees need help with.
Quite simply… installing, configuring, and troubleshooting should be left to the pro’s. You should be focusing on what you do best – growing your online business.
After all, if customers aren’t coming through the site, then you aren’t making money, right? Read more
