Attract Web Hosting Customers Via Website

If this is the first time you build a web hosting company, then the first thing you need to have is attractive website.

But before you go further, do not forget to choose the best tinta printer solution for your office. That’s the preamble for this discussion, now we will go further for the deeper conversation. Here i will act as customer so you can get better view for the tips.

If i were the customer, first thing i need to take a look within the web hosting provider’s website is the appearance. It doesn’t matter if they are using free content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc., just make sure that they don’t use free theme or template which used by many websites. Unique design is very important for web hosting company because it is one of the sign that they are serious in this business. By the way, how do we know they are using a unique website design? I could just say, check the credits of the website, who is the creator and we will know. Next we check the packages they sell, are they make sense or not. For this thing you need to have knowledge of the market prices, location of servers / datacenter, specification of the servers, how many users in the node, etc. By having knowledge of that, you will certainly get the best choice for your needs.

Shared and Dedicated Hosting – What’s the Difference?

When choosing a web hosting package there are essentially (excluding virtual private server hosting) two options: shared and dedicated hosting. As you would guess, each of these hosting solutions is fundamentally different and therefore you choice of either will have a significant impact over the running of your website.

With a shared hosting service your “server space” is shared by many users. This is significant because the more users on a server, the less space (i.e. webspace and bandwidth) they will be able to enjoy. This means that if you are expecting large volumes of traffic or wish to host a sophisticated page, shared hosting may not be completely reliable for your needs.

The alternative is to opt for a dedicated server, which is where your page does not have to compete with other sites for server “real estate.” This makes a dedicated solution absolutely perfect for sites that expect large amounts of traffic, or for users that wish to enjoy a heightened level of control or reliability.

As dedicated and shared hosting is considerably different, it is appropriate for different kinds of website owners. For example, due to the affordability of a shared solution, it is often the package of choice for sole users, beginners or smaller operations. By contrast, for larger organizations, such as online merchants, where reliability and control is imperative, a dedicated solution is often preferred.

Hostgator Review

Before i am going to write my review about Hostgator, i want to ask you about this web hosting provider first, have you ever heard about Hostgator? If you have not, then you are kidding me. Hostgator is one of the best web hosting provider, they have a worldwide reputation because of their professionalism and true 24/7 support. Why don’t i just say 24/7 customer support? Because it is not just for their customer, they also help you to solve any problem related to Hostgator even you are not their customer. I have a story to tell you about them before we are going to the technical review. One day i know that my paypal account was stolen by someone, because there is something weird when i want to buy something with paypal and my balance is not sufficient for the payment, so i am checking my paypal account and i found that my balance has been used for one month Hostgator payment, and that is absolutely not me who made the payment, because at the time i have not going with Hostgator.

EZPZ Hosting Review

EZPZ Hosting was established in early 2007, they are providing web hosts, reseller, virtual server, dedicated server, shoutcast server, and seo services. And here i will review their web hosts service. I have been using their web hosts service located in United Kingdom since one year ago, so far they have a good performance in delivering uptime, there was just a few times i cannot access my website hosted in ezpz hosting, but that is just a usual problem from global web hosts provider, probably because dns error, server trouble, upgrade server, or human error. But like i said before, it just a usual problem.

24 hours / 7 days support they guaranteed is good, no more than one hour to answer my ticket, averagely in half an hour they replying my open ticket and five to ten minutes after that. They are very friendly and professional when solving my problems, from the simplest one to the complicated one. For me, great support is more important than delivering good uptime, instead of i don’t care about the uptime, but good customer service will make the customers feel happy and satisfied.

Here i will give you ezpz hosting data and a few tests for your consideration before going with them.

Squid under Debian 5.04 64-bit netinst – Part 1

Part 1. Installing Debian 5.04 64-bit netinst

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system is called Debian GNU/Linux, or simply Debian for short. Debian systems currently use the Linux kernel. Linux is a completely free piece of software started by Linus Torvalds and supported by thousands of programmers worldwide. Of course, the thing that people want is application software: programs to help them get what they want to do done, from editing documents to running a business to playing games to writing more software. Debian comes with over 20,000 packages (precompiled software that is bundled up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine) – all of it free. It’s a bit like a tower. At the base is the kernel. On top of that are all the basic tools. Next is all the software that you run on the computer. At the top of the tower is Debian — carefully organizing and fitting everything so it all works together.

Setup Minimalis Unmanaged Server Configuration for Web Proxy Server

On the last post i talk about Setup unmanaged VPS with Litespeed Php and mySQL.

This time we will setup an unmanaged VPS (with OS centOS) to host multiple web proxy domain.

WebProxy consume a huge amount of server’s resources, so it would be kind if you configure your server to minimalis configuration, leave everything that not used for web proxy server, like mySQL, postfix and etc. What we need in web proxy server is httpd service (like apache), PHP, perl, python and curl. FTP server is required too in order to upload and edit web proxy script.
