Good or bad, cloud computing is making its way into just about every agency, business, and organization that could use a bit of off-site data storage.

Google Wave, Google Chrome, and as of December 3, 2009, the web surfing crowd now has access to Google Public DNS. The search engine company has put the latest product out as part of an overall effort to make the web faster.

Codero – another 100% green hosting provider

One of the biggest growing trends with web hosting providers these days is to become “green”.   It is constantly seen within front web pages of many providers – “100% green” or even “300% green”.  While this sounds great on the surface (and in the case of 300%, a bit odd), the reality is these […]

DreamHost not so dreamy

In what appears to be an ongoing issue for the past week, web hosting provider DreamHost has been experiencing numerous outages.
