What is Reseller Hosting?

July 2, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Reseller Hosting Plans

Reseller hosting is where a customer has the rights to sell space on their allocated server space to third parties. This can be done for a profit to the reseller.

Not all web hosting companies offer reselling. It is not acceptable, for example, to sell space on your dedicated server to other people unless your contract specifically states that you can. If you can, however, this is a good way to start a hosting company of your own. Many web hosting companies got started in this very way.

Another form of reselling is when the hosting company makes space available on its servers for reselling. In this case, it is not space allocated on your own server space, but you would be reselling space on other servers. This can be advantageous because this way you aren’t using your own resources such as bandwidth and disk space.

In either case, you will not have to know all the technical aspects of web hosting. The owner of the server will be responsible for updates on the machine.

A HostPapa Review: The Bad

June 17, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Host Papa

This Hostpapa review will focus on the fact that HostPapa is one of the less excellent web hosting companies to choose from. Their downtime for web sites that have any decent amount of traffic is appalling, often resulting in an hour or more of downtime each day. This puts their uptime far below the advertised 99.9%.

HostPapa’s technical support is also terrible. They do not seem to understand the more complex aspects of web hosting, especially the extremely technical components. Since they are the technical support team, this is particularly disturbing. They also fail to help customers in a timely manner, often taking several days to respond to an email or support ticket. Although they have an online chat service, the representatives on the other end are very unhelpful and tend to simply request that the customer send an email or create a ticket. HostPapa’s customer support is just as unresponsive, making it incredibly frustrating when an issue arises that requires help from the web hosting company, which happens all too frequently.

Bluehost Review of Technical Support Services

May 13, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Blue Host

With any web hosting service provider, the customer needs the assurance that should a technical problem arise with their website, they can access technical support at a time it suits them, which may not necessarily be at a time that suits the hosting provider. This Bluehost review highlights that bluehost provides a 24 hour, 7 day a week technical support service where customers can talk to a ‘real life’ human being as opposed to an automated pre-recording. With a separate support number for customers based outside of the United States.

Bluehost also provide an online help centre, which allows the user to browse a vast catalogue of articles of common technical problems that can often provide a quick way of solving everyday difficulties and an online support ticket system where you can email your question and a member of the support team will get back to you with advice.

What is a CSS Template?

April 30, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in CSS Templates, Web Design

The Cascading Style Sheets templates, also known as the CSS templates, assist web owners in organizing their pages by allowing them to create web sites according to standard designs.

Traditionally, web owners would layout their sites with the HTML TABLE tag, which can actually result in slow page loads. A CSS template can bypass such coding, thus making it more popular among web users and designers. Aside from making web site management easier for owners, this template also has excellent platform and browser compatibility This means that whatever browser is being used – be it Firefox, Linux, Netscape, Chrome, Mac, Internet Explorer, Unix, etc. – the page will not be distorted but will appear exactly as it was designed. Site owners can also utilize ready-to-use CSS templates if they are not too familiar or knowledgeable in creating their own unique template. The style sheet document is where the information on the design is stored. The web designer can edit the style sheet file whenever he or she makes alterations on the page.

How Do You Configure Free Joomla Templates?

April 8, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Joomla, Uncategorized, Web Design

The entire layout and the appearance of a CMS-made websites are based on the templates that you choose. Some of the best open source templates include free Joomla templates. Apart from the basic templates that are available, other templates are also available free. They are all licensed properly. Initially, you need to check whether the web hosting that you use supports Joomla templates. If the host uses Apache or PHP, then Joomla templates can be used. Joomla templates are open source, freely downloadable content management system templates. A Joomla file is downloaded in a compressed format and then unzipped. Using FTP, Joomla is uploaded to the website and it takes quite some time, as Joomla is a large CMS. The Joomla back end is used for configuration after installation is completed from the front end. When the “Template” option is clicked, it leads to the administration region, where configuration of the Joomla template is performed. The template that needs to be configured is selected. For Joomla version 1.6, the default template is BeeZ20.

A GreenGeeks Coupon and an iPad 2

April 6, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Green Geeks

Relatively recently, to encourage new customers to sign up with their package, GreenGeeks created a giveaway system. From those who set up a plan with their web hosting services in a particular month, a name was drawn at random. This random person received a free Apple iPad 2. The first giveaway was in April, and GreenGeeks has decided to continue the program, as it generated more business than they’d gotten in quite a while. And, for those who live in countries where the iPad 2 cannot be shipped, there is also a monetary award of equivalent value.

Unfortunately for web hosting companies, business has been rather slow. That’s why there have been extensive cuts on prices for packages of all sorts, and not just with GreenGeeks. This alone has not generated the amount of business they need to make a steady profit. Thus, GreenGeeks devised the giveaway plan. Now, it’s possible to get a deal on web hosting service with a GreenGeeks coupon and win an iPad 2 at the same time.

FastCGI with Joomla Hosting

March 14, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Joomla, Web Design

FastCGI support, in conjunction with Joomla hosting, offers the fastest and most streamlined web experience for visitors to your site. Compared to regular CGI, FastCGI handles larger amounts of data such as text, images and animations, and provides a much faster upload process. This is achieved by streamlining the transitioning process with each new page that’s loaded, making use of the site’s memory and cache system to store common data between the site’s pages, resulting in less data to load up with each page that’s relative to the site.

Integrating web-hosting servers with Joomla allows for faster navigation with customers sites. If your site is already built from the ground-up using Joomla, you can implement FastCGI into the coding to replace the regular CGI that is currently in use. The process of transferring this data is simple and easy to do, making FastCGI a prospective feature for people who are new to web hosting and those who wish to upgrade their already existing site, allowing for faster web browsing

What Do You Need Through Shared Hosting?

February 21, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Shared Hosting Plans

Shared hosting will offer a lot of benefits for those who sign up to their plans such as site builders and shopping carts. There is something for everybody, no matter what you want your website for. However, you do need to check each of the different sites so that you get the best deal for your money and you also find something that will offer you exactly what you need.

This is why you should always consider what your website is for before you sign up to anything. You want to ensure that you know what you will need while looking through what each website company is able to offer you. Do you need a dedicated IP address so that you can reach the whole world or do you need a dedicated server so that you can use a full server to do more on your website?

Some will even offer you shopping carts if you are looking at starting an e-commerce business. This will mean less work for you due to less need to program.

February 7, 2011 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Host Gator

HostGator currently has one official HostGator coupon deal available through their website. The SPRING coupon entitles the user to a 20% discount off the initial order on any HostGator hosting plan, including any contract term length. This means there are no financial risks, as is the case with most discount coupon offers, of being tied to a long-term contract with financial penalties for early contract termination. The 20% off coupon is available to both existing and new customers, but is only applicable to new orders and only for those months you include in your initial contract order. Therefore, if you sign up for a six-month contract, you will get 20% off the total order. If you sign up for a 1-month contract and then renew your contract for a further 5 months, you will only get a 20% discount on the first month service invoice.

1pennygator – This coupon entitles the user to purchase the first month of their server contract for 1 cent ($0.01)

cheap25off – a 25% off coupon
