Like a great cup of coffee, your domain should be bold and memorable. Being affordable doesn't hurt, either!
At Fresh Roasted Hosting, we love holidays. A lot. Probably a lot more than we should, really. Every holiday brings that festive, celebratory vibe that makes us want to hand out discounts like candy. Sweet, sweet, coffee-flavored candy. Mmmm. So for this President’s Day, we’re serving up a whopping 15% discount on any shared hosting [...]
Hot on the heels of the smashing success of our Barista Series Xen VPSes, I’m thrilled to announce the immediate availability of our new fleet of Barista Series dedicated servers in Dallas, Texas!
To say that 2012 was an amazingly successful year for Fresh Roasted Hosting would be doing a vast disservice to all the men and women who worked hard behind the scenes to make it all happen. And it wouldn’t even come close to thanking our loyal customers for choosing a local web hosting company over [...]
Fresh Roasted Hosting is thrilled to announce the immediate public availability of Xen VPSes on our new Barista Series servers in Scranton, PA! Starting at just $14.99, these VPSes offer high-end virtualization using the Xen hypervisor. Built using high-end hardware including enterprise-class drives in a RAID 10 configuration, these VPSes are faster than anything we’ve [...]
Sandy has come and gone, and aside from some high winds and rain later today, the worst is behind us. I’m proud to announce that all of our services and servers were 100% operational all night long. The Scranton datacenter lost voice phone service due to a Verizon outage, but all servers are still online. [...]
We’ve pretty much covered all the backup systems in place at our Scranton datacenter in our last post. In a nutshell, our shared hosting customers and billing / support systems will remain completely unaffected. Our VPSes and dedicated servers are directly in the path of the storm, and we’re confident that our datacenter is ready [...]
With Hurricane Sandy now projected to smack into the east coast around central New Jersey, like an enthusiastic Newfoundland heading towards a kiddy pool, there’s an excellent chance that our Scranton datacenter is going to be hit pretty hard. Since we’re in the business of being dependable, we always try to brace for a worst-case scenario. [...]
Important update: Since a lot of people are going to have to spend the next few days cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy, we’re cancelling this event. Stay tuned for a rescheduled date! Over the past few months, we noticed an interesting trend in our sales inbox. Day after day, the same questions kept coming in [...]
In a little over a week, Fresh Roasted Hosting is sponsoring a guided tour of the former town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the town and its history, Centralia is the site of one of the most well-known — and still very active — mine fires in the world. [...]
During last night’s Third in the Burg, I made the trip up a few extra blocks of North Third to see how Harrisburg Makespace was coming along. A few weeks ago, FRH Lisa and myself stopped by to help clean and donate some supplies; we had the “before” image, and we were really looking forward [...]
It’s one of the most common questions that we get asked. Unfortunately, it’s actually the most difficult one to answer. Since “unlimited web hosting” is usually a pretty bad idea, it pays to know how much (or how little) bandwidth your website really needs. And the answer may genuinely surprise you. When it comes to [...]
Technically speaking, this weekend is the last weekend of summer 2012. Despite this startling revelation (where, exactly, did the summer even go?), summer never really seems to end for us. In fact, an informal staff survey reveals that we all pretty much prefer fall. And more to the point, there aren’t many summertime activities that [...]
Now that you’ve got the basics of web hosting down, it’s time to learn about everyone’s under-appreciated friend: the web hosting control panel. Back in the day, managing your website was … well, messy. You needed to know your way around console commands, and you needed a solid understanding of Linux system administration. Today, control [...]
If your website is hosted on GoDaddy, odds are you already know about their major outage today. And if not, well … you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you check your site’s uptime report for the day. As much fun as it is to pick on GoDaddy, the truth of the matter [...]
If you’re confused by the terminology in web hosting seems a little overwhelming, you’re not alone. One of the most common questions we get in our sales inbox (after “why are your services so fast?” and “how is your support so awesome?”) is “I need to host a website, but I don’t know which package [...]
