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:



nopCommerce Running Slow: Issue Solved

Martin OrtegaI have seen nopCommerce go from being a web application that just needed about 300 MB of RAM to being an application that requires a lot more memory just to be installed out of the box, much less run.

Doing a Google Search for “nopCommerce running slow” brings up a number of articles that show this problem to be widespread. Another issue people have is simply installing it and getting it to work on their current hosting service.

So how do we resolve these problems?



Introducing Private MongoDB hosting

Takeshi EtoI’m excited to announce the launch of Private MongoDB hosting at Everleap.

This new premium NoSQL solution will provide you with your own private MongoDB server. Your MongoDB databases will get access to all of the disk space, CPU and RAM on the virtual machine. And like our other hosting services, it is fully managed. We will handle all the server updates and security at no additional cost, freeing you to devote your time and resources to your website and applications rather than server maintenance.



HTTPS on Everleap

Michael PhillipsWe recently published an article over on the DiscountASP.NET blog entitled, “https: who needs it?“, and it talks about all of the compelling reasons to implement HTTPS (via an SSL certificate) on your website. The tl;dr summary of that article is: You really need to implement HTTPS at your earliest convenience. Or maybe even before it’s convenient.

So yes, everyone needs to use https, and that includes us. We’ve gone through the Everleap website and made all the necessary changes, including forcing connections that come in on port 80 – normal HTTP connections – to HTTPS. You may have noticed we did the same on this blog, and our forum as well.

Takeshi EtoIn keeping with tradition, I’m posting our 2016 Top accomplishments list.

    Microsoft launched their next version of SQL Server so we made it available for Everleap customers. We introduced both Shared SQL 2016 and Managed SQL 2016 solutions.  Some of the new enhancements include temporal tables, query store, stretch database, and native support for JSON.



Everleap Attains Privacy Shield Certification

Takeshi EtoWith the help of our privacy management solutions partner, Truste, I am happy to announce that Everleap has attained Privacy Shield certification.

Privacy Shield FrameworkThe Privacy Shield framework replaces the former Safe Harbor framework that was struck down by an EU court in 2015. Starting in August 2016, the Department of Commerce started accepting certifications under the new Privacy Shield framework.

We believe our efforts are a differentiator and demonstrates our commitment to protecting your privacy. I hope you do too.



The Everleap Affiliate Program Is Here for Everyone

John MeeksOne of the first things we put on our list of “must haves” for Everleap was the ability for customers to earn commissions or credit for signing up new accounts. It was important for us, because one of the best ways to grow something like Everleap is to have you, the people who actually use it, share your experience with your friends and peers.
