FTP Hosting

Here’s Why You Need FTP Hosting

Posted - 5:30 pm

Most people hear the words ftp hosting and wonder what it is and whether it will be useful for their business or not. Trust us when we tell you it is the most important tool for your business. Read on to find out why. Most businesses these days are not restricted to any geographical boundaries. If you are running a business like that, then you already know the importance of collaboration. There are many ways to collaborate online. There are websites like Google Drive that let you upload and share files and documents amongst your employees. However, that is simply not as powerful at sharing files as FTP is. It stands for file transfer protocol, and it is an excellent way of sharing large files easily and effortlessly between you and your employees. It is a global platform. Also, you do not have to worry about file sizes since FTP supports files as large as the server disk can hold. What Should I Look For in FTP Hosting? You should definitely research the following before buying into any FTP hosting service. First, you have to check the reliability of the host that you are going to buy from. The hardware the host uses has to be of top-notch quality. It must also have good peering with the major providers and redundant power systems. This will ensure that you get the highest speeds possible; also, your FTP server will not go down so easily even if they have no power. A good monitoring system should be present to check server and network systems periodically for any errors. If your host has this, you can be rest assured that you will get the best possible service out of them. We offer all of the above in our best in-class data center. Our data centers have full BGP peering the major providers out there; they also have fully redundant power systems that are coupled with air conditioning systems—this ensures that our servers are running at all times and are not susceptible to overheating. On top of that, our data centers have advanced fire protection systems. This is connected to our integrated monitoring system that checks our servers and network for any errors. It notifies us of any errors immediately, letting us take quick action whenever possible. We always have on-site data center staff to make certain that things are taken care of as soon as possible. The next thing you should look for is required bandwidth. This depends on the size of the files and the amount of times you will transfer them back and forth between your business and the FTP server. Keeping that in mind, you should look for at least a couple of hundreds of gigabytes of data transfer. This should be matched with sufficient disk storage that will range from a couple of gigabytes to terabytes. Having said that, we offer hosting plans that start with a minimum of a hundred gigabytes and goes up to unlimited space. Yes, […]

Web Page Hosting

5 Reasons To Choose Our Web Page Hosting

Posted - 12:10 pm

Tech savvy individuals or businesses that are planning to publish new websites sometimes debate about whether they should use third party web page hosting companies, or set up their own web page hosting servers. Here at webdevel.com, we believe our third party hosting service offers so many advantages over self-hosting that the decision should be a no-brainer. Here are 5 reasons why website publishers should opt for our web page hosting service. 1. Web Page Hosting Security It is unlikely that any computer user in the modern era is unaware of the problems caused by malicious software. Viruses, Trojan horses, worms, key loggers and other malicious applications may be used to sneakily gather data from unsuspecting computer users. They can also be used for more serious and costly purposes. They can permit sensitive data to fall into the hands of crooks who will use that data to fraudulently withdraw money from compromised bank accounts, or to carry out identity theft. What makes home or office computers particularly vulnerable is that most of them are now connected to the Internet, which exposes them to remote hacking attacks. Web servers are also computers, and they too are potential targets for hackers. That is why security is so important. In fact, security is such a critical issue that it would be foolhardy to leave it in the hands of anybody who is less than an expert in the field. Secondly, the threats and risks are continually evolving, and those people who are tasked with managing security must constantly upgrade their knowledge and their tools to keep abreast of the latest hazards. This is something the average website owner would have neither the time nor the skill to administer personally. The best shared web hosting companies, just like ours, will have all the expertise and the software tools available to constantly monitor and fight off hacking attempts. They can attain a level of security that is simply beyond the resources and capabilities of a non-skilled individual. Spam emails may be simply a scatter-gun approach to marketing, and, as such, are more of a nuisance than a security threat. However, spam emails are often used as the means by which malicious software is distributed. Malicious software can be embedded in email attachments. Alternatively, these emails may include links to malicious websites. Upon clicking on one of these links and connecting to a malicious website, surfers are essentially opening the door to dangerous downloads. Spammers use a variety of tricks to distribute their unwanted emails in a way that gets past spam filters. One such way is to access other people’s accounts and send emails from them. The account owners may be totally unaware that their email accounts are being used in this way. Email addresses that are identified as the source of spam email messages can end up being blacklisted. That means that legitimate emails from them may be blocked. Another possibility is that the email address from which the spam is coming can be […]

Shared Web Hosting

Should I Opt For Shared Web Hosting?

Posted - 9:50 am

One of the most commonly asked questions we get asked at webdevel.com is what level of hosting do we recommend for new website owners. We find that many new owners are quite confused about the various types of hosting available, and the different costs for each type. For most newly launched websites, shared web hosting is sufficient. As web traffic grows, and demand on resources rises over time, shared web hosting may impose too many limitations, or reduce the performance of the website, at which point the owner may decide to upgrade. Upgrading is a straightforward process, and can normally be done without having to take the website down. If it does have to be taken down, the downtime is very short. To help you decide on whether shared website hosting will be good enough for your needs, we have prepared this explanation of what comes with shared web hosting, and what its principal limitations, or the most important factors to consider, are. Shared web hosting This does not mean that your website is shared between two or more hosts. It means that your website is physically located on a single server that also hosts many other websites. That means that each website on the server shares the server’s resources. Those resources include the CPU, the RAM and the disk storage space. Our servers all use ultra-modern, dynamic load balancing to prevent any one website from hogging all the server’s resources. Nevertheless, there may be times when server response is slowed down when there is very high demand on the resources. This may lead to slower page load times, and that could prove to be unacceptable for some websites. Shared IP address When a surfer types a website name into a browser address bar, the browser forwards the address to a Domain Name System (DNS) database. This is a lookup service that holds details about the Name Server that in turn points to the hosting company’s server. Once the browser accesses the DNS record, it forwards the request to the corresponding Name Server. At the server, the management software examines the website name, and returns the index page, or a specifically requested page, for the corresponding website. All the websites that reside on a shared server have the same IP address. The host computer has to analyze the hostname to return the correct website. That means you cannot get to a website on a shared server by typing in an IP address. This is rarely likely to be a problem, since virtually nobody tries to navigate to a website using the IP address. It is much easier to remember a domain name than an IP address. However, there may be some instances when it is desirable to access a website using its IP address. If you have a need to do this, then shared hosting will not be the solution for you. Advantages of shared website hosting Low cost The fees charged for shared services are lower than for other […]

PHP Hosting

What Does PHP Hosting Mean?

Posted - 12:05 pm

PHP Hosting Building and launching your first website can be a daunting and confusing undertaking, especially if your technical knowledge of how the World Wide Web and the Internet work is limited. If you are new to this field, you have to learn the meanings terms like web hosting, shared hosting plans, HTML, static and dynamic web pages, analytics and so on. Our technical support staff are often asked if we offer php hosting, and we have to probe a bit further because there is no such thing as php web hosting. When our people delve into what the customer really wants to know, it is almost always whether he or she can host websites that require PHP with us (they can), a very different thing to php hosting. What is PHP? PHP is an open source programming language that was developed specifically to build web pages. It is probably the most widely used programming language for web development. Our web servers automatically give your websites access to PHP, so when we get questions about php hosting and talk to our customers, they are assured that they can run their PHP applications on our servers. Why use PHP? PHP allows you to build dynamic web pages. Dynamic web pages are built on the server in real time in response to a request, and the built page is returned to the browser. In contrast, a static web page is a one that resides on the server in its final form. When you type in a search query on any search engine, the engine will use an application like PHP to process your query, and feed the query into its database servers. The engine will use sophisticated algorithms in the processing phase to decide what pages should be returned in the search results. When it makes that decision, it passes the results found into a page-building module. The module will create the page and send it back to the browser. Such a page is referred to as a dynamic page. All of this takes place in just a few seconds. It should be clear that search engines could not provide a useful service if they were limited to returning only static web pages. In the same way, lots of other types of websites need to use dynamic web pages to be of any use to their visitors. For example, online stores, unless they offer a very limited range of stock, will need to use dynamic pages to display items for sale. Are there other advantages to using dynamic pages? There are numerous advantages to using dynamic pages. Some of the benefits are important, while others are pretty minor. On a website where users can click through several pages on the site, it is good practice to show a breadcrumb trail on the page that lets them see exactly how they have arrived there. This also benefits the site, as it helps surfers get back to that page on a subsequent visit. Without […]

Low Cost Web Hosting

5 Good Reasons For Personal Websites Using Low Cost Web Hosting

Posted - 6:20 pm

Low Cost Web Hosting Every business should have a website. A website provides an excellent, cost-effective way to promote a business. Businesses that sell products or services can set up online stores to increase their market reach. Even small, start-up businesses can exploit this opportunity. We offer low cost web hosting at the most competitive rates. Our Economy plan is easily within the reach of even those with the most modest budgets. The vast majority of websites are built for commercial purposes. They may generate revenue directly, or they may play a key part in a business’s marketing strategy. However, there are good reasons why you might want to consider setting up a personal website, the purpose of which may not be strictly commercial. Here, we look at some of these reasons. Building a family website At first glance, it may seem a strange idea to build a family website. After all, there are several social networking sites that allow you to keep in contact with friends and relatives. However, social networking sites give you little control over how your content is displayed. All of your contacts will be getting a constant stream of posts, messages, images etc. from every one of their contacts. That means finding photos of a great family event becomes a bit of a challenge. It is easy to create a simple family website where you can upload your photos and index the page they are on. You can then share the link with your social network contacts. The photos will always be in the same place, so there is no searching required. Unless you are among the first to sign up with email providers, you can end up with an email address that will be impossible for your friends or family to remember. You may have something like tomjones12198@myemail.com. If you set up your own family website, you can use the email facilities that come with the site to create easily remembered email addresses. Here at webdevel.com, our low cost web hosting Economy package is ideal for this purpose. You can choose between Windows shared hosting or Linux based hosting plan. Each Economy plan lets you create up to 100 email accounts with your website domain name following the “@” sign. For example, if your domain name is mysite.com, you can create an email account tomjones@mysite.com. This is much more memorable than the first example. Clubs The most successful clubs are those that fully engage their members. In every club, some members will be more active than others. Less active members can often feel sidelined if they miss out on what is happening at the club because they are unable to attend often. One very easy way to keep everybody abreast of the latest developments is to avail of low-cost web hosting and build a club website.  The website can be used to post details of events and competitions, the minutes of committee meetings, and the plans for the future. There are countless benefits from […]

ASP NET Hosting

When To Choose Asp Net Hosting

Posted - 1:20 pm

Understanding ASP NET Hosting A web hosting company provides computers, more usually referred to as servers, that are connected to the Internet. When you want to make your website visible to surfers, the easiest way to do so is to sign up for a hosting account with a web hosting company. You then copy the code and all the other files associated with your website, such as images and videos, on to the web host’s servers. The two most widely used operating systems on web hosting servers are Linux and Windows. The latter is the best choice for ASP.NET hosting. If your website does not run any ancillary programs on the server, then your choice of server operating systems is irrelevant. Simple sites that are built using just HTML, for example, will perform equally well on both platforms. Similarly, if your web pages run client-side scripting programs such as Javascript, the server operating system is irrelevant. That is because these programs run on the surfer’s computer rather than on the server. All but the simplest websites usually require some kind of program to run on the server. When a web page uses PHP, the PHP program runs on the server. It generates an HTML version of the page, and then sends that back to the browser. A common usage of server programs is to verify usernames and passwords before permitting access to particular areas of a website. Two of the most popular web-orientated programming languages are PHP and ASP.NET. The former is an open-source language built specifically to run on Linux servers, while the latter is a Microsoft proprietary language designed initially to run on Windows servers. In the relatively recent past, PHP programs could only run on Linux, and ASP hosting was possible only on Windows servers. Additionally, the two most popular databases used on web servers, namely MySQL and SQL Server, could only run on a specific operating system. The former needed Linux and the latter Windows. Today, it is possible to run PHP programs on Windows servers, and it’s possible to run ASP.NET programs on Linux servers. MySQL has a Windows version. SQL Server can run on Linux, although not directly. However, there are still good reasons why it’s best to use ASP .NET web hosting if your website is built using ASP. 1. Compatibility Every program running on any computer has to interact with the operating system. The best way to visualize this if you are not a programmer is to think of the operating system as a boss whose first language is English. Now, think of a web application program as somebody who has to work under the supervision of this boss. If the web application program uses Spanish as its first language, there are clearly going to be communication problems. It may be possible to smooth things over by using an interpreter so that the two can communicate. However, this adds overhead, and slows down communications. It also increases the potential for errors. Using […]
