Top 10 Things We Accomplished in 2017

Takeshi EtoAnother year is in the books. Here is my annual Top 10 list of accomplishments for 2017.

  1. Expanded our Private Database offerings
    Back in 2016, we launched Private SQL hosting – a solution for customers to get their own private server with a SQL server installation that is not shared with any other customer.  This database solution is ideal for sites that have large databases, those who need hosting for many small databases, and those who need special customized configuration on their SQL server. In 2017, we expanded our Private Database service to include:

    1. Private MySQL hosting – Your own private server loaded with MySQL.
    2. Private MongoDB hosting – Your own private server loaded with MongoDB, a popular NoSQL solution.

    Private Database Special: we are currently offering 50% off the first month of any Private Database servers. If you are interested in getting your own database server for peak performance and customization, please contact us.



Meltdown, Spectre, and the Processor Problem That We All Face

Michael PhillipsBy now you may have read about an issue affecting Intel, AMD, and other processors, potentially exposing sensitive memory data. Until now, that data has been assumed to be safe, since a program running on a system isn’t supposed to be able to access the memory used by the kernel or core of that system. There are two separate bugs involved, known by the names “Meltdown” and “Spectre.” The bugs affect virtually every device that uses an Intel or AMD processor: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, phones – essentially almost all computing devices made since 1995.

Everleap from the Tech Support Manager’s Point of View

Martin OrtegaI’m the Technical Support Manager here at Everleap, and I’d like to offer up my point of view today and get straight to the point of what Everleap is all about.

Everleap has two hosting plans: the Single site plan or Multi-site plan. You can compare the two plans on our website. When you sign up, just choose whichever plan fits your needs. Remember that you can always upgrade from the Single site plan to the Multi-site plan at a later time if you need to. So if you’re not sure what you need now, go with the Single site plan to start.

Want to Give Everleap Reserved Cloud Servers a Try?

Martin OrtegaEver wanted to try one of our Reserved Cloud Servers but weren’t sure how it would work with your site? Well, we’re allowing current Everleap customers to try out a Reserved Cloud Server for a few days to see how you like it.

What are Reserved Cloud Servers exactly?

All the power you want! Kinda.

Your site (or sites, if you’re on the Multi-Site Cloud plan) is placed in its own reserved instance. That means no one else is on the server, it’s just you. Some of the benefits are:
