What is Web Hosting

in Fun/Hosting/Internet/Review by

Web site hosting allows people and practically anyone who wishes to make their content accessible to the World Wide Web, possible. There are a multitude of companies which can offer this type of service, generally regarded as main servers. Because they deal with a lot of data and traffic, the server must be very powerful in terms of processing power so that they can handle any sudden increase in traffic without compromising performance or, in the worst case scenario, failing. That is why it is very common for them to contain a lot of data stocking devices and being very fast.

Of course, there is a wide variety of web site hosting plans out there and each one comes with its own options to choose from. Some may include guest books, community networking functions and many, many more. But there are also professional side deals of web site hosting, which have specific packages they can attract their clientele with, most popular being the ability of credit card processing.

Depending on you needs, prices can range very much for web site hosting. To host your own site can really be a joy, where paying for it doesn’t even appear as a problem, because you will most likely find it for free. It is very convenient, but everything that comes for free is not that great, as you know it. You will generally have to allow ads and banners being shown on your site so that, depending on your success, the larger companies can win a buck off your back. But I guess anyone who rapidly grows a money making domain will no doubt register it properly. If this is not the case though, you can pay a small amount of money to the hosting service so you can have the ads and banners removed.

Do bear in mind though, depending on the content you wish to host, you should check for servers that can offer 24/7 availability without fail downs, for this will cut down from your site’s reputation being regarded as unstable.

A Successful Career With Reseller Web Hosting

in Blogging/Fun/Hosting/Internet by

When you think about the internet and how many web pages it holds, it truly boggles your mind for those few seconds you try to grasp it. It is the place where you can find information about anything, anytime and from anywhere. And like any data that’s out there available to the wide public, it has to be hosted. This is where you can hear that cocky line feds tend to say in the movies: “Web hosts will take it from here”.

You don’t need to have special trainings or knowledge regarding the technical aspects of hosting. For this there is a data center operator which handles the network hardware and infrastructure, while the owner of the dedicated server is left with configuring, securing and updating the server. When it comes to the reseller’s responsibilities, they mainly consist of interfacing with the customer base, while any software, hardware and connectivity issues are to be settled by the server provider whom sold the reseller plan.

If you want to jump on the hosting business, you’d better be very thoughtful before you do it. Get a pen and a piece of paper and start writing down your plans for this. Start by assigning a budget, deciding how you will administrate it, planning the number of clients within your first month and so on. It doesn’t matter if your plans do not follow accordingly with what reality will actually offer you. Keeping your expectations real and writing them down will make you have a good sense of grasp to your business and by keeping document tracks you will not get lost on the way.

You should know that you are really lucky because you live in such a time where technology has become so widespread and everyone can take advantage of it at low cost. Prices for infrastructure, hardware and bandwidth gave hosting companies the opportunity to offer quality services at competitive and fairly low prices. For you this means that you won’t have to be a millionaire to enter this market, but your efforts will have to, in terms of hours spent working for this.

Reseller hosting also means taking risks. Try not to throw your money in the face of the first person you will see. Do a lot of research and do not ever compromise on the quality.

After this step is done, you should get a domain name and register it. As a web reseller host, avoiding other hosting services is very important. Just go to a registrar and have your domain registered.

If you think of getting a reseller hosting, do your homework and write down your plans about it and then prepare for thousands of hours of work. It won’t be easy, but it could earn you that nice Porsche you’ve always dreamed of.
