Have You Outgrown Your Current Web Hosting Company?

Cheap, shared hosting is great when you have no traffic. Startups don’t have a high IT budget, and it’s tempting to go with cheap $5-per-month hosting, but you soon discover this is problematic when you start driving traffic to your website. You can’t customise server resources, and you could share a server with thousands of other webmasters. Shared hosting is adequate for a new startup, but here are the telltale signs that you’re outgrowing your current hosting solution. 1.

Why Is Cloud Hosting Faster Than Shared Hosting?

Key Differences Between Cloud Hosting And VPS

Many people believe that cloud and virtual private server (VPS) hosting is exactly the same thing; however, there is a world of difference between them. At first glance these differences may seem slim, but if you make the wrong choice they could significantly impact the functionality of your data storage. Server Setup A virtual private server has a physical server that is split up between a certain number of users – similar to a shared server setup where accounts are held in the same location. The primary difference is that a VPS has fewer users, which provides a greater amount of control. Virtualisation software is also used to divide users on the server; however, this doesn’t always prevent them from affecting your account. A private cloud will distribute resource across multiple servers......

Web Hosting And Security: What You Need To Know

Whether you have a personal blogging website or you’re running an eCommerce business, security should be the lynchpin to its operations. Security breaches and data leaks occur on even the biggest websites, so it’s crucial not to become complacent with security checks. So what should you be looking out for as a bare minimum to ensure your website is protected? As a website owner you probably use an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) where you upload your files to be hosted and then published on your site. But for added security it’s best to opt for a secure file transfer protocol, (SFTP) especially if you work with a website that uses this for a large number of sensitive files and images. This will provide your files with an additional layer of protection and make them less vulnerable to intercep......

How Does Web Hosting Work?

Namespace, server, domain registration – the web hosting world is full of jargon. However, web hosting is virtually synonymous with cloud hosting. Back in the first early days of the Internet, the World-Wide Web was referred to as ‘the Cloud’. That’s kind of stuck around now, and nowadays ‘the Cloud’ is merging ever closer with ‘the Internet’. The real defining feature of the ‘the Cloud’ is its ability to do computation – to process stuff – in the cloud itself. However, even basic web hosts do that too, so perhaps even that is void. For this article, we’ll assume we can change ‘web hosting’ in to ‘cloud hosting’ with no loss of information or understanding. Remote content An understanding of web hosting requires an understanding of how any personal computer – what we’ll call from here on i......
