What a day…
After we came across some unusual activity on many of our servers, we pushed out an article to help our WordPress users protect their WP-Admin areas from attackers. As the day went on we started to see more of the unusual activity, but this time with tens of thousands of IP addresses. This is a very well organized, highly-distributed global attack on WordPress installations across pretty much every web hosting provider in the industry.
We strongly suggest that you change your password on your WordPress installation. Something that is very hard to guess. lower case, UPPER CASE, 1234’s and $*@#&$’s.

We’ve been offering VPS Hosting for quite some time now. We like to give our customers options for when it comes to hosting and that’s why we offer a wide array of hosting solutions, virtual private servers being one of them. However, not a lot of customers know what a VPS is and/or how it works. I’ll try to clear that up and try to make some sense out of it for you.
So what exactly is VPS Hosting?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and is essentially a server within a larger host server, often called a hardware node. What we’re able to do is take a server with lots of resources (CPU, Memory, Disk Space, etc) and slice it down to smaller servers through virtualization technology. The smaller servers or VPS’ look and feel the same as a dedicated server except that they are residing on hardware that is shared with other VPS’.
Many website platforms require the backbone development of PHP. Like other forms of programming, this is one of those platforms that is in constant development. As a result, you need to know how to update or otherwise change your version of PHP.
About a month ago we announced an GreenGeeks Video Review contest where we were giving away 3 iPad’s. It’s one thing to see e-mails written in to tell us how great we are, but it’s another when you actually see and hear it from customers. We had a lot of fun with this and I’m sure our customers did too! Continue reading “GreenGeeks Video Review iPad Winners Announced!”
What a summer! Upgrades galore!
One of the unique things about GreenGeeks web hosting is that we’re always looking for ways to provide our customers with the best possible hosting experience. This is what sets us apart from the competition. I’ve worked at other hosting providers where there were no advancements. It was boring and it really affected the customers’ chance of succeeding online. Not at GreenGeeks though, we’re always hungry for more. We’re always testing new hardware, new software, new security tools, etc. Anything that would benefit our customers. Continue reading “Increased Performance & Reliability”
Our Ecosite package is pretty amazing because it gives you so many great features like unlimited disk space, bandwidth, and email addresses. But what about our customers who are running more robust systems that need greater RAM, CPU, and process resources? In the past, we have moved these customers up to our VPS hosting packages, which have served them well. But some customers need more resources, but aren’t quite ready to move up to a VPS plan. We decided to launch our Ecosite Premium hosting package for those customers who need greater resources, without any change in the way they manage their site. Ecosite Premium features:
- Double the RAM, CPU, and Processes of our Ecosite packages
- Fewer customers per server for even greater site performance
- Direct access to our nightly backup servers to restore files at any time
- Free dedicated IP
You can view more information about this package by logging into your Account Manager by visiting https://www.greengeeks.com/clients/am/premium/. Please contact Sales if you have any questions about our Ecosite Premium plan.
