Cloud computing has taken the world by storm and represents significant time and cost savings for most businesses. There is little functional difference between a public and private cloud platform. Each empowers users with the capability to launch virtual servers in a data center within minutes, each is inherently scalable, and each can be controlled, integrated, and automated via an API.
A container packages an application's code, binaries, and dependencies together. The container includes everything the application needs. It runs on any compatible hardware, whether a cloud server, dedicated server, a hybrid virtual server, or a developer's laptop. Containers simplify the development and deployment of applications.
The modern development world seems to require three things which are difficult to achieve at the same time. Development should be fast, code should be high quality, and costs should be kept to a minimum. Software that is developed quickly is rarely the best quality. Testing code to make sure it's high-quality inflates product timelines and increases costs.
Game server hosting providers have a unique set of requirements for the hardware that hosts game servers for their customers. Perhaps the most important is low latency: gamers demand impeccable network and disk performance. But other factors also contribute to building and optimizing a dedicated server suitable for hosting multiple concurrent game servers.
At ServerMania, we're working hard every day to identify small ways to improve the customer experience. One of our latest updates is the introduction of IP Justification directly into our order form.

Have you wondered if a managed server is a good fit for your business? Depending on the nature of your server needs and your technical expertise, your business might benefit greatly from a managed server.
There are a variety of server types including unmanaged, semi-managed, and fully managed servers. The distinction between these services can often be confusing, especially since each server provider defines server management packages differently.
In this article, we will explain what managed servers are, and some of the key benefits to a server management plan with ServerMania.
The modern infrastructure hosting market offers no end of platforms and technologies for companies to choose from. But in spite of what seems like endless variation, it’s possible to categorize infrastructure hosting options into a small number of functional groups. The most fundamental division is between bare metal infrastructure and hypervisor-based infrastructure, which is more often referred to as cloud infrastructure.
In this article, I’d like to discuss the differences between bare metal and cloud infrastructure, with a focus on the benefits of each and how infrastructure hosting clients can choose the best platform for their projects and applications.Read More
MongoDB is a popular NoSQL database with a serious problem. Tens of thousands of MongoDB databases have been hacked by criminals, who replace the data with a simple message: “Send us money or your data is gone forever”. In fact, calling it a hack is overly generous, since there’s very little hacking involved: the databases have no protection and are exposed to the internet.Read More
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.
