Dedicated hosting provider ReliableSite expands its hosting reach with a data center in Los Angeles, California. It is the company’s third data center in the United States.

Dealing with DDoS Threats without Breaking the Bank

This post was written by Radic Davydov, CEO and founder of ReliableSite. If you're in the internet or hosting industry, you might feel like DDoS threats and attacks are becoming a regular part of business. When I started ReliableSite, we were a web hosting provider. Ten years later, it seems we are becoming a security company for our customers as well. There are weekly news stories about DDoS attacks and security breaches. Every major site has gone through a DDoS attack, was taken offline, and then invested a great deal of money into specialized protection because of a single incident. Those news stories typically make it seem like only the really popular websites are targeted. What would the incentive be for someone to target a smaller site? Money! These “hacker” groups need a way to fund themselves and their activities as resources, rent, and internet bills tend to pile up quickly.

IPv6 is the future. Are you in?

Be Part of the Future with IPv6 Did you know that ReliableSite has fully implemented native IPv6 support? All of ReliableSite’s servers are provisioned with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses so that our customers can enable support for the latest internet technologies. Why is native IPv6 a big deal? You might have read that almost all of the internet registry agencies of the world have run out of available IPv4 addresses. Even though IPv6 was created three decades ago, not everyone’s using it. In fact, only 22.68% of Google’s visitors in the United States or about 20% of data going through Akamai are on IPv6 connections. Internet service providers (like us, and maybe you) are the ones responsible for this push. There are 340 undecillion, 3.4x10^38, IPv6 addresses available and we want to start making a dent in them. Explore IPv6 At ReliableSite, we're encouraging our customers to explore IPv6

ARIN Announces IPv4 Exhaustion

To people who are just regular users of the internet, the end of IPv4 is barely a noticeable event. ARIN, or the American Registry of Internet Numbers, announced that they had allocated every single available IPv4 - translating to IPv4 exhaustion. Registries in other regions of the world have their own availability, but in general, the days of IPv4 are coming to a close. Even though IPv6 was created back in the 1990's, IPv4 is still hanging on. For everyone who is responsible for internet infrastructure -- dedicated server administrators, internet providers and web-based companies -- the end of available IPv4 space is causing headaches for many reasons. The IP aftermarket If you really need to have IPv4 blocks, there are companies that act like brokers to sell them. What was once a free service from the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) — is now a new market. One IP has sold for $7 to
