InxyHost offers its clients the great opportunity to get dedicated servers from one of the best data-centers in the USA. We are working with TierPoint data center in Dallas, Texas. This data-center operates for rather long time - since the year of 2000. Nowadays it is a reliable facility that welcomes a lot of different businesses and is ready to cope with the most critical data.

Let us review the main highlights of the data-center we offer:

This data center is 68000 square feet that gives plenty of room to store and operate high-loaded servers. The floors in this data center are raised for 30 inches - this means heat reduction and comes in handy for the intensive jobs. The building in which dedicated servers are located is single-story and there are no other tenants - it wholly belongs to TierPoint.



The site boasts great security that works 24 hours, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. To get access to this facility one has to provide biometric data as well as physically show ID. There are also 100 internal and external cameras that can hold up to 90 days of video storage.

The data-center offers great connectivity because of the work with different providers.  Work with us and we will give you the best service we can. Feel free to check our official website www.InxyHost.com.

Using CDN for quicker website loading

When we speak about the speed of page loading it is necessary to say that the distance from server to user influences it a lot. If you choose to share your content among several servers that are geographically spread, it will make your website loading time quicker from the user point of view. So, what to begin with?

First of all, when trying to build a system of geographically spread content, don’t try to change the architecture of your applications to work with certain architecture. Depending on application the change in architecture may lead to complex changes, such as the synchronization of the sessions’ state or replication of transactions of the databases between the geographically spread server. If you do this you may ruin all your attempts of reducing the distance between servers and users.

You have to remember that 80 and 90 per cent of time that the pages take to fully load goes to loading of its components – pictures, CSS, scripts, flash content and so on. It is the golden rule of performance. So don’t change the architecture of your application – use your time to share the static content. It will allow to make page loading time quicker and it can be achieved with the use of CDN .



So, we may refer to CDN as to the network of numerous web-servers that are geographically spread in order to achieve the maximal possible speed of content delivery. The server that is automatically chosen to deliver content to the certain user, is chosen according to several attributes. For example, usually the server with the least number of hops is chosen or the server with the smallest response time.

Some big internet-companies own their own CDNs, but it is much cheaper to use the existing solutions, such as, for example, SpaceCDN. For startups and personal websites the costs may be too big, but when your  audience will begin to grow it may also become more distant geographically. CDN is necessary to achieve faster response times – you can get 20% performance increase and even more. CDN requires minimal changes in code but will bring great productivity to your web-applications.

How reliable is a good data-center

First of all, when we speak about data-center and its reliability, you should think about who has access to it and how this access is granted. Intrusion is one of the simplest ways to harm data in data-center. Good data-center is monitored and supervised 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. There should be different scanning and checking systems that will help to ensure that only authorized people can have access to data-center. Technically it may be done by using the electronic ID passes that will be configured individually for every person for whom access is granted. For separate parts of data-center where the most sensitive information is stored, there should be enhanced security – for access here there is a need to have biometric data scanned.

The access to data itself should be under total control – good data-center is able to successfully deal with the attacks of different hackers. Usually data-center is equipped with good systems that are able to detect intrusions, suspicious activities and so on. Firewalls created by different organizations are usually used to protect already stored data, and incoming traffic is monitored thoroughly.

All data and backups are transmitted to and from client either with encryption or with use of high-security cables.
Power supply is very important. Usually data-center, if the main power supply fails, activates special batteries that may help with power supply for 15 minutes. This time is usually enough to start diesel generators that will be able to provide data-center with energy for much longer time.



Many people want to know what will happen to data if the hardware in data-center fails? The data is still fully secure. The fact is that all virtual and dedicated servers, databases, storage devices are united into network. If one particular component fails, the transaction may be done with the use of another component and system stability therefore remains intact. If the hardware fails due to the fire, the data may always be restored from previously made backups.

So how data-center takes fire precaution measures? First of all it is always a good idea to divide the building into several sections that have their own protection from fire. All data-center rooms have a lot of fire detectors and different monitors that check for special gas and the state of the room and are usually able to tell the managers about the problems in advance.  In case the fire still happens, the room is automatically filled with special gas that deals with fire. No water should be used because of the sensitive electronics. Water is used as the last resort measure.

Data-center building should be built solid and properly – it should be reliable, with thick walls. The building should deal with storms well.

Privacy of data is very important, as well as backups. Backups are usually done by using disk-to-disk method – this gives the opportunity to quickly make and quickly restore data. Full backups should be made daily and intermediate – several times a day. Later they are archived for security purposes.

The advantages of dedicated server for business

The use of dedicated server for landing your own projects and websites may seem rather expensive, but in the end the result is worthwhile. The shared hosting, it doesn’t matter how well organized and managed, cannot be 100 per cent reliable. However, if you use dedicated server it gives opportunities to avoid many problems that users of shared hosting experience – here we can name overload, bad code and scripts from other users, especially beginners, big amount of loaded applications that are not useful for your project but are used by others. On the contrary, using the dedicated server you will be able to install software that you need.

Dedicated server  reduces dependence on hosting and reduces page load times. While using dedicated servers you will be able to give your clients full-time support when it is needed, and it is natural that you won’t be able to do the same while using the shared hosting. Everybody understands that good support is vital for growth of your business and creation of the image of stability and reliability. Rumors have great influence.



For people who work with clients, such as web-designers or graphic designers, the dedicated server is vital for their job. It will allow studio to get more income in the end. If you have constant access to your server that may be tuned according to your needs and updated as soon as possible, it will allow to gather more income and not to share it with anybody else.

The advantages of dedicated server are fully visible if we refer to statistics of how many clients are lost because your website is down or how many clients closed your page just because it took too much time to load it. Some of these people could give good income to you in future and you may be sure that the losses are comparable to the cost of the dedicated server.

For any business the website that has fast load times and is working properly is the indicator of the reliability and stability of your service – you will be able to sell more products. Also you will benefit from creation of good image of your company and from the increase of the base of your clients – the glad users will recommend you to others. Think of it as of greater benefits from less promotions.

If your projects are important to you, think about using dedicated servers.

Using old server to create backups

More and more information is stored in the digital form and that’s why there emerges a question how to provide the biggest amount of security to it. Every existing method has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, floppies are useless now, ZIP-disks are too expensive, given their capacity – CD or DVD copies are good if you remember to do them regularly. If you store your information on a single hard drive, it is natural that one time it will fail and you will lose your data.

So what is left? You may copy the information on another hard drive – external or on another computer. So let us see how you can use your old computer as a server for your backups.

Many users upgrade their computers every 2-5 years and that’s why somewhere you may find some old and not used machine. It may be used for this purpose.

Every more or less modern machine that was built somewhere around 2000 will be quick enough for the purpose. If the machine is built before the year of 2000, it will hardly suit your needs.

Before you make any software manipulations just try to switch the computer on and check if it loads. If it fails to load – check if CPU or RAM card is inserter properly, check the power supply and see if your computer is in working state.

Check how much you have to invest in it, search for needed components in shops. You will most likely need hard drive, network card and RAM.

Nowadays each PC may handle at least two hard drives. You can put the OS on existing hard drive and store and make copies on newly bought drive. Hard drives are affordable now and their volume is enough for any backup storage. They are big enough to make the full image of the system just in case.

For even greater security and to preserve data think about using RAID. In such configuration the data is divided between two and more hard drives. You should probably use RAID 1 where the same data is copied on each of two or more drives. Software or dedicated controller card may be used. Such solution will cost you from 200 to 500 USD  that will be paid for controller and the pair of hard drives. Yes, RAID costs more than standard hard drive, but such solution is more secure because if you don’t make backups everywhere it allows to make sure that data is preserved at least on one hard drive.

Next, you will need the network card. It is your choice to use cable or Wi-Fi. Also as an option you may buy the USB adapter to transfer data directly.

In order for you computers to see the new server you have to create network – it is done rather simply and usually the standard means of Microsoft Windows allow to do it easily. You will have to share the folders that are needed to backup.
If you are not ready to pay the money for the Windows license, choose Linux – this system may be used free. It is reliable, just make sure that it supports all your hardware – especially wi-fi cards and different controllers. Linux also has some free of charge means of backup creation.

After everything is configured, you have to choose the data that will fill the backup in. If we speak about Windows, ‘My Documents’ folder is backed up usually, but you will highly likely want to create backups of other data, as well as system registry. It is possible to make partial backups – only the files and folders that changed since the last backup, but once a week it is better to make a full uncompressed copy that can be read by any computer. And don’t forget about antivirus software.

For full security try to make additional backups. Use CDs and DVDs for periodical backups and make backups of changes on weekly or monthly basis. Create backups in the cloud for the most sensitive information (it may be free of charge or through the subscription).

Thus, the old computer may be used as a sever for backups. The only thing to consider here is what upgrade it needs and how much it will cost.

How to protect your server

The use of dedicated server is a good idea but to achieve the best results it must be well protected. Let us see how to achieve this.
1. Change the SSH listening port from standard
Standard listening port for SSH is 22 and it is a good idea to change it to something more obvious. It will allow to get rid of the automatic attacks.

2. Use the protected connection for your administration tasks
Always use TLS protocol to establish connection between your computer and server. It will allow to encode data and give hackers no chance to steal it.



3. Update your software regularly
It may seem obvious but not all people apply software updates. Timely updates, however, remove vulnerabilities and therefore leaves no chance for hackers to penetrate to your server.

4. Pay attention to your login details
Often people use some word or even date as a password, but it is a very bad idea. Stop this practice and use the secure password. Don't forget to store it in a reliable place and change it from time to time.

CDN allows to make the income from games greater

Games are popular source of income that is able to bring more money to those people who use it correctly. When creating new game the main focus is usually made on content and graphics, but it is necessary also to think about the general experience that the player gets.

CDN allows to make this experience much better and therefore to bring more money to developer. So what are the advantages of CDN for gaming industry?
- files are downloaded quicker - it can be said about gaming files and downloadable content as well as the network stability;

- the number of players increases - the quality content and quick load times will make customers satisfied and attract new ones;

- the income is growing - the more the player base is the more in-game purchases they make;

- you don't need to spend much money on hardware upgrade - as the player base grows the load is more, but using CDN will help to distribute this load among network servers and therefore decrease loads to the main server.

Dedicated server in the game world

Gaming server is the machine that allows to process the game events in different video-games. Such server will allow clients to exchange data with each other, to get the same version of the game world at the same points of time, to see the interaction of other players with the game world and to interact with it themselves.

Dedicated server is rather good for this purpose. The players usually connect with it with the help of special game clients. The advantage of dedicated server lies in the fact that it is located usually in professional data-center and therefore is extraordinarily reliable. The costs of such hosting are usually paid either by the game developers or by the in-game clans or guilds.

Dedicated server is a good solution in gaming world and is widely used nowadays.

CDN influence on SEO

CDN influences on the site load times that may be useful for SEO. Let us see the positive impact of CDN for SEO:
1. Quicker site load times - the quicker the site, the higher he is in search results;
2. Good user experience - the quicker the website is, the better the user experience is. This factor is taken into considerations of search systems too
3. Load times for Googlebot - most Google servers are located in the USA. That's why those CDN that have POPs in the USA will make your website faster for Googlebot.
4. Income increase - the quicker site and the better user experience means that you gain more revenue from sales or ads.



But for this to work you have to take several factors into consideration:

- correctness of CDN setup
- good uptime
- presence in needed location
- servers in the USA for Googlebot

What does colocation mean?

Colocation - the service that is provided by service provider by locating the client equipment in their own data-center and gives the steady supply of power, needed service as well as connects to wide internet-channels with good bandwidth.

Colocation allows to save on the channel from provider to client. The service is actually not limited by physical location of the equipment. The providers also give additional services, such as:

- server management;
- stats gathering and monitoring;
- remote access to server or other equipment, such as KVM;
- backup power supply;
- security;
- setting of the needed climate environment;

Some people think of colocation as of the type of hosting and some - as of separate service.
