Finding the best hosting service for your website can be complicated

25.11.2013 (5:45 am) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

The internet is one of the most important tools in the modern times. What started off as simply a mode of transfer of data is today used for a wide variety of purposes. Today, it plays a very important role in commerce and finance, all across the globe. These days, a large number of products are sold over the net. So, you will find products ranging from safety pins to cars and nails to large factories on sale on the internet. It is perhaps due to this ever growing popularity, that a large number of firms, enter the arena of internet marketing.

As a result of this, more and more websites are coming up each day. As a matter of fact, it does not seem to be a distant reality, that some day, every person would be having a separate website of his or her own. In order to cater to this growing demand for websites, web hosting services have come up as an effective tool.

Finding the best hosting service for your website can be complicated. There are almost endless options all clamoring to be the top hosts or the least expensive service, and this can make it almost impossible for webmasters to sort fact from fiction. The best way to select a quality web host is to take the selection process one step at a time:

Assess Your Needs
The very first item to address in selecting the best hosting service for your needs is to actually identify what those needs are. What sorts of website are looking to host?

Rate
Of course a low rate but high in quality!

Data Transfer and Disk Space
Bandwidth requirements grow with your site. Web hosting companies pay for bandwidth, so you, the one using that bandwidth will be billed accordingly. It is far better to pay for the required amount of data transfer upfront rather than get a surprise bill in the mail for having gone considerably over your allotted amount. By the same token, be sure you have an appropriate amount of disk space reserved.

Reliability and Speed
The best hosting services will offer uptime of over 99%. This should be a guarantee to motivate the company to keep all servers up all the time. Of course, visitors should also be able to access your site quickly.

Scripts and Special Features
Different websites have different needs, and the best hosting service for you should accommodate those needs. Email addresses should be standard as well as the capacity for a variety of scripts. Be sure to see if other features like shopping carts and secure servers are available or standard.

Technical Support
It is very important to be able to reach the hosting company if your website begins experiencing problems. The best hosting support one can hope for is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Most companies know this, so take their stated hours with a grain of salt. Always spot check the companies with email at random times to see if they really have someone available to help 24/7.

Control Panel
How much control does the hosting company offer webmasters? It is inconvenient to work through customer service every time to modify a password or to change email addresses.

Load Balancing
Once the resources are exhausted and the web-server is encountering heavy traffic, a problem would surely arise.

A problematic situation pertaining to difficulty in handling high volumes of incoming traffic can be solved either through installing more RAM on existing machines or replacing the CPU with a faster one. The use of faster or dedicated SCSI controllers and disks with shorter access time can also be done. Software can be tuned so that the operating system parameters and web server software can be adjusted to achieve better performance.

An alternative approach is to improve performance by increasing the number of web servers. This approach would attempt to distribute traffic unto a cluster of back-end web servers that need not be large-scale machines. Web server scalability is achieved when more servers are added to distribute the load among the group of servers or server cluster.

Shared Web Hosting

 

A shared web hosting service or virtual hosting service or derive host refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. Each site “sits” on its own partition, or section/place on the server to keep it separate from other sites. This is generally the most economical option for hosting as many people share the overall cost of server maintenance.

Mini Linux

10.11.2013 (11:44 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

Origin

The term appears to be derived from the first distribution to work in this way. The MINI LINUX distribution arrived in 1995, and ran off several floppy disks.

Linux floppydistro

A Linux floppydistro is a mini-Linux distribution that only uses 1 or 2 floppy diskettes to contain a Linux kernel and useful utilities. To save space, standard GNU utilities are often replaced with those in Busybox or asmutils.

There is a distinction between a bootfloppy and a floppydistro. A bootfloppy usually doesn’t contain any useful utilities, and is used mostly when installing a Linux distro. A floppy distro contains both the Linux kernel and important utilities. An example of simple bootfloppy is syslinux and an example of a Linux floppydistro is BasicLinux.
