Linux vs. Windows Server? — A question that has been debated endlessly by system administrators and server hosting clients since the dawn of the web. We’re clear where we stand: for most purposes, Linux is the right choice. Windows Server is a secure, flexible, and powerful server operating system, but our heart is with Linux.
The ServerMania team has worked with Linux since the company was founded in 2002. We have proudly watched as thousands of our clients have built successful businesses on our Linux-based server hosting. Our dedicated server, cloud server, and hybrid server plans run on a variety of Linux distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu (as well as Windows Server 2008).
Traditionally, business owners have preferred to hire employees to do work for their company in-house. That way, they can oversee the process to ensure the quality of the work is up to par.
But business owners aren’t experts at everything. They don’t always know the severity of a problem when it arises and rarely do they know how to fix it themselves. This is especially true when it comes to their own website. Most owners have no idea what type of expertise is needed or how to eliminate problems before they become an issue.
Although it may not seem like it today – in the era of Smartphones, Tablets, and Facebook – I think we can all agree that email’s a pretty revolutionary technology. The development of email rendered a whole crop of traditional communications methods all but obsolete.

But it can be challenging to see a path from a company’s current infrastructure to the cloud. Moving complex and critical legacy applications is a big step, and without executive buy-in, it’s difficult to get the ball rolling.Read More
Traditionally, phishing attacks have targeted consumers with random spam in the hope that that some small proportion of the targets are naive enough to install malicious software or hand over login details.Read More
Choosing the right hosting option for your project is important. It will help ensure you have a positive experience and only pay for the infrastructure you really need.
But finding exactly the right hosting isn’t easy. There’s an almost infinite variety of options, but many of those options have more to do with marketing than the technical attributes of the platform.Read More
Twenty-five years ago this month, Linus Torvalds posted a message to the comp.os.minix newsgroup asking for ideas for a new project he’d been working on. The project — “just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu” — was an operating system. At the time, it was unnamed, but, as I’m sure you all know, over the next quarter of a century, Linux popularized a new way of thinking about software development and became the seed that allowed thousands of businesses to flourish.
If you are looking for a new revenue stream for your business, affiliate marketing is a great place to start.

cPanel has recently announced another round of price increases for their licenses, on top of the restructured pricing from earlier this year. As a result, we have decided that we will no longer be offering cPanel licenses on new servers. Current ServerMania users with cPanel licenses will be able to continue their work as normal, but they will be informed about their (possible) monthly price increase in the upcoming weeks.
