After Mondays DDoS attack that affected an estimated 5 million customers, I think everyone learned that we are all vulnerable and need to take the necessary precautions to protect our sites. Just like if you were to own a brick-and-mortar shop, you would be sure to lock your doors, hide your cash and possibly invest in a security system.
So what are your options in an online world? Here are a few things you can do to keep your site safe. Read the rest of this article »

As a 15 year veteran of web design and programming, I can appreciate a site built as well as PinchHost.com. Alex has not only set up an elegant site, with a great user interface, easy navigation and several years of great blog content, but I admire the little things as well. The PinchHost business plan is one that is relaxed and effective in a world of automated junk hosting companies. The PinchHost web servers are some of the fastest available and all for a monthly cost that is lower than most of the big boys in the game.
My years of design and programming at Finepoint Design has taught me to appreciate the beauty in simplicity and making something that is easy to use. Sites that are cluttered, hard to navigate, or just look like a 2 year old built it are almost a standard. I am a huge fan of WordPress because of its simplicity and clean interface. On the same token, I’m equally a big fan of Joomla! because of its simplicity in the programming and customization options. Both platforms offer a great community that should be around for a long time.

Over the past couple of years the blog has gone through quite a few different designs. It’s hard to say if users prefer a company blog to be integrated into the design of the rest of the site, or as a separate entity. But in the end, it seemed like it’d be best to integrate and avoid confusion.
Over the next year, we’ll be interviewing PinchHost clients and industry experts, as well as providing some web hosting industry commentary.
If there’s any specific areas you’d like us to talk about, contact us.
P.S. If you hadn’t noticed, we’ve sneakily integrated our pricing plans into the sidebar to entice new readers.

As an extra bonus, thanks to our billing overhaul, we now accept Google Checkout… on checkout. Google Checkout has grown quickly since it launched and I know it’s some clients preferred payment gateway. If you’re an existing customer, just select Google Checkout when you receive your next invoice.

Over the past few works we’ve been busy overhauling our support, FAQ, affiliate and billing system. Previously all these systems worked as separate entities. Now they’ve all been packaged into one, WHMCS – an excellent billing and support system. This now means you need not have a separate login information for your support, billing and affiliate account. Instead, it’s all in one easy to use portal.
This is a move long overdue and it’ll not only make life easier for you, but also for us! (Support and Billing)
Along with the overhaul, we’ve also refreshed our pricing plans and now have 3 plans instead of just 2. Existing clients will continue on the same plan as they signed up with.
