As this year is drawing to a close and the holiday season is upon us, we thought it would be nice with a short recap of the year. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish.
The web hosting industry is thriving. Server infrastructure is better and more affordable than ever before and the market keeps growing. This also means there is a lot of competition out there, so if you’re running a hosting business you’ll want to maximize your chances of long-term success. One way is to aim for a global audience, and another is to minimize the resources you need for day-to-day operations.
We’d like to welcome a new hosting company to the Atomia family. Tu CPD Virtual (which translates to Your Virtual Data Center in English) launched a couple of weeks ago in Spain, and we’re very happy to have them on board. Congratulations on launching!
Tu CPD Virtual offers pay-as-you-go VPS hosting using Atomia’s hosting and billing software. Here is how they describe themselves and their approach to the market.
September release of Atomia’s hosting software will support hybrid cloud, CloudLinux & Let’s Encrypt
As you may know if you’ve followed us for a while, we have two major releases of our hosting and billing software per year. In September it’s time for the second big one of 2016, which will open up even more possibilities for hosting providers.
This is a quick sneak peek of some of the new features and improvements that are coming in our next release.
Today more than 40 percent of web access is done via mobile devices, and this is a growing trend. It shouldn’t come as a surprise. Just think about how often you yourself access the web on your mobile device — and you’re hardly alone. There were 2.6 billion smartphone subscriptions worldwide in 2015, and by now you can add a couple of hundred million to that number.
With internet access everywhere and a smartphone in every hand, being able to work on the go has not just become a possibility, it has become a requirement.
This blog post will give you an overview of how Atomia’s software lets you automate billing, customer management and provisioning for OpenStack, turning it into a complete solution for selling cloud hosting. We will also list some of the other business benefits you get by using Atomia.
The hosting business is a moving target. To stay on the cutting edge and push forward, hosting companies need to keep evolving and adapting to what customers really want, offering products that appeal to a large number of people and businesses.
Atomia was created with this in mind, an adaptable hosting software platform that companies could truly benefit from in the long run. Every year we equip our customers with more ammunition for running successful hosting businesses.
Every year a ton of gifts are sent out by businesses to their partners and customers in time for the Holidays. Collectively, they are spending millions of dollars on this. However, while gifts are nice, we decided last year that we’re not going to play this game. We donated the money to charity instead, in our case by supporting Doctors Without Borders.
Now we would like to urge other companies to do the same. Spend that big batch of gift money on a charity of your choice. It makes a difference.
I recently had the opportunity to deliver a keynote at WorldHostingDays, a popular hosting industry event, so I decided to speak about the business and marketing aspects of launching a new product online. Our product of choice would be a cloud service, but this advice applies to almost any kind of hosting venture or web service.
Cloud hosting is currently a $20 billion-a-year industry, and it just keeps growing. There is a lot of money to be made and the technology to sell cloud hosting services is already here, right at your fingertips, ready for launch.
This is why we here at Atomia have put so much weight behind our OpenStack integration. OpenStack has become the de-facto standard for cloud hosting software, and can act as the basis for many different kinds of cloud hosting services. It’s a true powerhouse. We love what OpenStack brings to the table.
