As almost every computer user knows, anytime you add or remove crucial data from your computer you should take a backup, just in case something unexpected occurs which may destroy this information. This could be as simple as an accidental deletion or as serious as a hard drive failure. Your server is no different. There should always be some form of backup in place for these “just in case” type situations.
It’s even more crucial when your livelihood or income is dependent on this data and your site. It is advised to not only keep “on server backups” but also to retain backups somewhere off the server in case of hardware failure or a catastrophic event. We offer multiple, cost-efficient solutions for retaining off server backups including Cloud Backups and Cloud Block Storage. Today we’ll explain how to set up your server to push your WHM backups to Amazon’s S3 service as an additional destination for your external backup plan.Continue reading “Configuring Amazon S3 via WHM/cPanel”

The number one way to help prevent spamming is to ensure all CMS’s (like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal) including themes, plugins are up-to-date on your VPS server or Dedicated server. This may sound too simple, but there are innumerable times when an outdated plugin allows hackers to destroy an otherwise secure domain.
