What a day… well yesterday at least! Oi!
The day was a wash for the most part – first half of the day I wrapped up various projects but sadly the Mrs. car died and well that was our afternoon/evening. In fact, the kid passed out on the way home and the Mrs. followed suit as her car was left at the dealer to see what’s wrong in the AM (fearing its the alternator died) – but we’ll know more tomorrow.
The thing I’ve been thinking about is some of the current web hosting servers I have in place, I think I might be able to change things up a little bit, improve performance again, and see some network gains in the process.
I feel like anymore I’m constantly changing things up, but in the last 12 months alone I’ve reworked a lot of things, and this one would actually bring about some of the growth I have in mind! There are some pros and cons:
- Bigger Server
- More RAM
- More Storage
- More Control
- Not much change in price
- IP Changes
- Time Needed
Some of this honestly was sparked by my interaction with GoDaddy. I don’t really compare myself to GoDaddy, we are in two different spaces of hosting, but I just feel like as-is, things could use a refresher, and it would really benefit the customers!
I’ve used this new DC for about 2 months now, I’ve read countless reviews on forums with folks who’s input I trust, and even tonight testing out my test server I snagged on a deal it maxed out on data usage getting the whole of my 100Mbit connection. Quite snappy really – and while the hardware I picked up for testing isn’t what I’d get for final, honestly? It is well worth it, and again benefit to customers would be amazing.
Throw in cPanel adding Rsync backups in cPanel 66 – I’m excited about what I could do.
Again just thinking, but have to do a little more research here tonight. I finished some things, others I actually got a few customers who said it could be done anytime over the weekend in a follow-up email, so really I can check on it in the AM and maybe just maybe catch up on some sleep. Night.
