Reseller Web Hosting – A Great Investment

August 17th, 2013 Comments off

The hosting of sites came up with the Internet explosion. As in its early days it was necessary to have a local server to “be” alive on the Internet, the costs and technical problems involved in maintaining these servers were very high for the average citizen.

With this and with great interest because of the Internet, some companies have begun offering space on their servers to “host” the newly created websites. Today the business experiences a large and growing hosting companies are increasing around the world offering high-capacity servers at relatively low cost and allowing anyone to have and host a website.

How Does Reseller Hosting In India Work?

The demand is so great that these hosting companies ended up creating options for reselling hosting such as Unlimited Reseller Hosting. This service creates the possibility that people or companies make money by creating virtual servers that allow the contractor to have a dimension “x” of resources of a dedicated server.

Thus, within this quota, it can sell your own hosting plans and found its hosting company sites without having to run the huge investments for the deployment and maintenance of a complete data center and hire specialized staff to manage it and keep it. This allows the offering of all the features of Linux or Windows server, control panels, independent individual with detailed statistics, ensuring also the operations of e-mail and FTP clients.

Here in India, many hosting companies offer the service for resell. So, you can open your business quickly, without investing almost nothing and start your own business so uncomplicated. Thus, profits made from reselling the space is fully engaged with you and so does the customers, they will not know that your business is virtual.

This will results in gaining trust of customers and treat everything with you, the financial part and hiring of accommodation to technical support. This will give you a tremendous freedom in pricing and contracting of resources to be offered to its customers and may enter the web hosting market quickly and ensure good profits with little concern.

The unlimited reseller hosting plans are also a good option for people and companies who have websites eating lots of resources. Hiring a reseller hosting, they provide more resources for transfer, storage and processing without having to invest in expensive dedicated servers.

Hosting A large Business Website

Hosting-A-Large-Business-Website

There are numerous reasons for choosing a right web hosting package which can be beneficial for your business. The major thing is that, if you don’t purchase a package that offers you all the things you need to run a business online,then you won’t be able to attract and retain a faithful client base. For example, one way an online business can benefit from the right web host pack is through the use of domain names. Some webhosting providers offer free domain names and for the blossoming online business, the right name is often very important.

You must always remember that domain names must be unique – no 2 websites can have the same name. If you have an idea for a great name for your domain and that name has not already been taken, you can register your name even before you are ready to set up your website. This process is called “parking” the domain name and it ensures that the name will be available when you are ready to start your website. Many web hosting providers include domain names as part of the web host pack. Taking advantage of such an offer is one way an online business can benefit from the right web host package.

Security is another feature offered by web hosting companies and another example of how an online business can benefit from the right webhosting package. In today’s world, computer hackers, viruses and worms are simply a matter of fact. If an online business cannot assure customers that it’s safe to enter personal information on the company’s website, there’s likely to be few people who are willing to take the chance. Especially when it comes to financial information – credit card numbers and bank account information – security is vital. People who routinely shop online are usually careful to note the privacy policies and security systems in place before they order. While providing your own security is feasible, having a web host package that includes a solid security system will help ensure that your company information and your clients’ information is secure. After all, how hard would it be to regain trust if you had a major security breach?

Finding a reliable webhosting provider that has a package tailored to your needs is very important. While it’s probably going to be easy to find a company that offers web hosting that exceeds your current needs, it might not be feasible for you to take on that extra expense (especially during the business’s infancy). For example, you might need only a single e-mail account, but with a large amount of disk space. The web host packages with enough disk space also have unlimited e-mail accounts. If you can find a company that will tailor a plan to your needs, that company might discount the monthly fee as long as you don’t need additional e-mail accounts. If you do find a plan like this, remember to allow yourself room to grow in the future. Looking for tailored plans is just another way an online business can benefit from the right web host pack.

How About Considering A Niche Hosting?

December 20th, 2012 Comments off

About 4 years ago, we talked about hosting niche. I think it’s time to take a look again at this. Niche can be defined as a segment of the market that has a unique and exclusive demand. Attract a niche means delivering products that meet a need for which there is not much supply.

Types Of Niche

The market is quite large and seems to get bigger every year. Let’s name a few that are currently in high demand:

Hosting Blog – Blogs are still high. The ease of installation, availability of themes and customization and ease of use always attract different types of customers. Most companies that provide this service tend to focus exclusively on WordPress as a platform.

Web Hosting CMS – CMS is an acronym that means content management system. This is another dynamic system that has facilitated the creation of websites quickly replacing html editors. The plans are usually aimed at Joomla and Drupal.

Mail Services – An email hosting service has generally targets people who want to use another mail server other than the hosting. The most popular segment is hosting with the Microsoft Exchange platform. Email marketing is also a service that can be seen in this niche.

Other:

Hosting Virtual Stores – With the increase of online shopping every year, more and more companies look forward to host service stores. It involves many aspects as means of payment, certificates, configuration management. It is a niche with several possibilities for exploration.

Hosting images / videos – This type of service has become quite popular over the years. It is intended for users who need space to show and share files. You might consider creating a CDN (content delivery network – more on that soon).

To offer or focus on any of the services mentioned above, I recommend that you go deeper in the area, check which are the optimized settings for each server type of application and be ready to answer questions from customers about trivial matters.

ASP.NET Website on a Dedicated Server

October 2nd, 2012 Comments off

ASP.NET Logo ASP.NET is an enterprise-class scripting framework that can be used for the development of highly scalable and functional web applications that can be hosted on Windows dedicated servers. As ASP.NET is a proprietary technology that has been developed by Microsoft, it is only available with the Windows operating system, although this does provide an array of advantages in terms of performance and features; as there is a close tie between the operating system and the framework, you can be assured more open access to core Windows features that can be used to improve how your web application handles specific tasks and the load that it places on system resources. A dedicated server can handle web applications that are used by thousands of visitors at the same time so combining this with a scripting framework that has been designed to make efficient use of system resources, your web applications won’t be prone to failure because of heavy usage and you should never see any high loads occurring on your dedicated server. Within the dedicated server hosting environment you can always take advantage of other tools such as Microsoft SQL Server that will give you a database backend that you can use with your ASP.NET web applications – this will be inherently important if you are going to be developing scalable and dynamic websites.

Versions of ASP.NET

There are several different versions of ASP.NET that have been released over the years and if you are looking to host an older website on a dedicated server then you will probably need to install an older version of ASP.NET so that your web application functions correctly. Luckily all versions of ASP.NET that have been released are able to work side-by-side on a dedicated server so that Windows web applications of all ages are able to share the same hosting environment. The current version of ASP.NET is 4.5 and this is the recommended framework for you to use if development new ASP.NET applications; older versions include 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 – you should look out for these when choosing any third-party ASP.NET application packages.

IIS Web Hosting

ASP.NET hosting services on a Windows dedicated server are provided by IIS as this is the web server application provided with the operating system and is therefore the only one of its kind capable of serving ASP.NET web pages to visitors. As IIS is also a proprietary application and the only web server with native ASP.NET support, you can be assured of complete compatibility between all of these technologies so that your Windows web applications will function to the best of their ability; furthermore, you can also make your own modifications to improve the efficiency of your website and IIS.

A dedicated server from Host.co.in can provide the perfect breeding ground for any new website because the resources provided will allow you to expand without any limitations. You can also develop your web applications using a number of other technologies and components that won’t be available in the Windows shared hosting environment because you can install any extra features that aren’t offered by default; this means that a Windows dedicated server will represent excellent value for money for all ASP.NET developers.

Microsoft SQL Server Databases

Developing a dynamic website can improve access speeds for your visitors and the way in which you manage your website because all content and configuration information can be stored in one central location that can be accessed from every page and script that is part of your application, as long as there is a connection to the database active. Microsoft SQL Server is a scalable database server solution that can be used for the hosting of databases that have thousands of queries to deal with every minute and underpins some of the busiest websites on the internet; when used in combination with ASP.NET, you can be assured that your web applications have the infrastructure in place that will be able to cope with increases in demand as the number of visitors that you receive improves. MSSQL will perform best when used in a dedicated server environment as you will be able to make a number of different modifications so that the database server functions with your applications in the way that you would like it to.

The settings that need to be modified in includes/configure.php are mentioned below:

HTTP_SERVER : You need to set this up to your domain name

define (‘HHTP_SERVER’, ‘http://mydomainname.com’);

DIR_FS_CATLOG : Then you need to define the absolute path to your shop

define (‘DIR_FS_CATLOG’, ‘/home/user/public_html/shop’);

DB_SERVER : You need to set this to the localhost

Advantages of Softaculous over Fantastico

November 18th, 2010 Comments off

These days lot of discussions are going on superiority of ‘Softaculous over Fantastico. As Softaculous covers more recent updates it is more favorite of not only the webmasters as a consumers but also of many web hosting companies as providers. As Softaculous has 150 scripts which are dehighlighting the Fantastico which has near about 50 only.

I would like to share some important features of ‘Softaculous’ which keeps it much ahead in the race with ‘Fantastico’

  • Has much more scripts than Fantastico
  • More User friendly than Fantastico
  • Less time consuming Installation
  • Ability to Import scripts which are already manually installed
  • Ability to install Javascript Libraries
  • Ratings from the users who already have used by others are viewable.
  • Ability to take backup of applications
  • Overwrite option for already existing files.

As a statement from Softaculous, they will keep on adding more software applications into their catalog. Currently shared hosting owners are redirecting to Softaculous on a very large scale.

Relation between Web Hosting and SEO.

October 10th, 2009 Comments off

As most are aware SEO is an abbreviation of Search Engine Optimization.It is important for getting organic search traffic to the website.Whereas,hosting is all about placing your website on the server owned by either you or by the Web Hosting provider.Here is some information about the relation between web hosting and SEO.

seo+web-hosting

With the changing visitor choices and search methods,search engines have started to monitor almost every information which is related to the domain.This is something more than just the content on your website.

According to the search engine liking, backlinks or link building is considered to be the most essential aspect of SEO.Each backlink added to the list,acts as a bonus point in view of the search engine.Though,link building is not a laymans task.It is important for any website’s success to get backlinks from websites/domains that are hosted on different web host servers and with different IP addresses.The main intention should be,that the entire linkbuilding process must look natural.Incase most of the backlinks to your website comes from the same websites/domains,search engines may either think that you either own that domain/s or you maybe have purchased links from them.Here in both the cases, may create a negative impact in terms of seach engine rankings of your website.Therefore,it is necessary that the backlinks you get to your domain,comes from websites hosted on different servers from various locations that has different IP addresses to increase your authority in the search engines.

A straight forward approach to get online success is to adopt natural ways or pretend to be natural in the view of the search engines.The search engines bots determine the authenticity by validating the volume of backlinks coming from various authoritative websites hosted on different servers of different web hosting providers.

Therefore,if you are looking forward for a successful website, and with that intention,if you are setting up number of domains,it is advised to host it on different web servers offered by different web hosting providers.This move in SEO can help you achieve better results in the search engine result pages.Most of the web hosting service providers offer free dedicated IP addresses with their web hosting packages.You may contact your web hosts for inquiring about IP’s from different servers.Installing your website on such IP’s can prove to be fruitful and can save some extra bucks that you would have to pay to the other hosts for signing up for new web hosting packages.

There are various benefits of having a dedicated IP assigned to your website, one of the benefit from SEO point of view is that you are prevented from falling prey to the common IP assigned to the shared web hosting server that may be blacklisted by the search engines.If you are working on optimizing your website for particular geographic location,IP’s from servers from that region is the most effective way of geo targeting SEO.

Inaddition to this,it is required that you get your website optimized from a third party SEO firm or you may even use the freely available softwares that are already optimized.You may may even use such softwares on your server leased from the web hosting provider.Ofcourse not all web hosting packages offer you the privileges to install third party softwares onto the server. Usually, the web host offer such privileges with the Dedicated Server Hosting and VPS or Virtual Private/Dedicated Server Hosting packages,where you get the root or admin access to the server,with these packages you can install almost every third party softwares (ofcourse you need to check the terms of service of the host).
