HostDime today launched HostingCure, a first-of-its-kind initiative for the web hosting industry to raise money for breast cancer research. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, and more than 200,000 women are diagnosed with the disease each year alone in the United States.
Through HostingCure, any individual or web hosting company can donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which is the only breast cancer organization to receive an “A+” from the American Institute of Philanthropy and the only cancer organization to currently hold the same ranking.
Web hosting companies who contribute to the effort financially with a donation of $500 or more will also be recognized publicly. HostDime has already donated $600 and will be initiating more efforts to raise money. All participating web hosts will be honored on the HostingCure website at http://hostingcure.com/participating-hosts.

We’ve been testing Enkompass since its first trial version and we’ve recently began testing on our new Windows VPS packages. The idea was to test Enkompass as a distributed system at a much lower cost than running on a dedicated server cluster. We’ll try and release some benchmarks in the future but for now we wanted to show how to setup a cost effective virtualized Enkompass cluster.
In our test environment we used three of our HostDime Xen based WVPS.2 packages. One server is running active directory which handles DNS and users , another is running IIS and the Enkompass control panel storing all domain content. Our last server is running MSSQL, MYSQL and the mail server, Mail Enable.

In our industry, everyone talks about “customer service,” but what is it, really? What does true customer service entail? What limits does it have? Where does “good” customer service become “great”? These are questions I have struggled to understand in my years in the field. According to Jamier L. Scott in Electronic Commerce: A Managerial Perspective, “Customer service is a series of activities designed to enhance the level of customer satisfaction – that is, the feeling that a product or service has met the customer expectation.” I feel that HostDime.com has really embraced the concept of customer service and taken it even further. As Support Manager here, I have worked to push the limits of customer service as traditionally defined to higher levels never seen in our industry. Impeccable customer service is my goal here at HostDime and it should be the goal of every Customer Service department at every company.
After taking on my position of Server Analyst I, I quickly learned that HostDime.com has an approach to support which is different than the other companies I had worked for. At other companies, the focus is on quantity and speed, rather then quality. In contrast, the support goals at HostDime are to respond quickly, but not at the expense of quality results. Providing excellent support and pushing oneself to always ensure the customer is satisfied was something that was ingrained into me early on.
