Posted by Ben Austin on Apr 8, 2015 7:58:10 AM

Last week’s observance of World Backup Day got me thinking about the vast amount of data that is being generated across the globe every single day. At each individual company, whether it’s a tech giant or a small e-commerce site, all of this data is the fuel that spurs growth and keeps the lights on week after week. Regardless of its size, protecting the data that is generated online should be of the utmost importance for any business with an online presence.

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.

But when it comes to servers, backup isn’t just a convenience -- it’s a must have. So how can you make that clear to your potential clients, and how can you convince them that any extra costs associated with backing up their server data is well worth the price tag?

How Hosting Providers Can Add Value to Small Businesses

Posted by Ben Austin on Oct 23, 2014 6:14:00 AM

Last week at HostingCon Europe, Robert Hoffmann, CEO of 1&1 Internet, gave an interesting keynote covering the basic expectations of small business owners as they build out their online presence.
