What is the best host(ing) for me?

What is the best host(ing) for me There are several types of hosting availble. Each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Below we listed the most common hosting options, starting with shared hosting for the light-weight websites, to Cloud hosting for the big guns. Free Hosting Free hosting is not actually a kind of hosting, but since many members ask for this we thought we would explain it here. As you will find in a lot of threads around these forums, free hosting always has a catch. Either your website shows adverisements, gives little to no resources available, doesn't allow you to use your own domain name, etc. If you're making a website for family and free hosting might be an option for you, but if you use it for business, stay away from it, as it looks very unprofessional! Shared Hosting Shared hosting is the most basic form of hosting, and perfect to be used by start-up websites and/or websites with low traffic. Your website will be placed on a server together with other websites. This means that your website has to share the resources (CPU time, memory) with other websites running on the server, which is not necessarily a bad thing, as most hosters take care of balancing things out. Usually this is done by imposing a limit on the CPU time a website may take, i.e., a website may not take more than a set percentage of CPU time as that would be unfair to the other websites that run on the server, as their speed would decrease. Usually this limit is about 10-25% and the amount of data traffic you can have will be somewhere between several hundred mega bytes to a few gigabytes of data traffic available. E-mail services on a shared hosting account will also be shared. If another account is spamming (or has been hacked with SPAM as the result), your account will be blacklisted, too, as it originates from the same IP address. Virtual Dedicated Hosting Virtual hosting is for the websites that have low to medium traffic. Your website will be placed on a server that has been virtually split into multiple servers. This means that each of the websites gets a predefined amount of CPU time and memory available, i.e., a portion of all CPU time and memory available. Because of this split, your website won't slow down when any other website running on the same server has a sudden increase in traffic, as your CPU time and memory are protected. Depending on how many other websites are run on the server you will usually get about 2 to 5% of CPU time and about 50 to a few hundred gigabytes of data traffic available. Dedicated Hosting Dedicated hosting is for the websites that have medium to high traffic. Your website will be the only one to run a server. Meaning all the server's CPU time and memory are dedicated to serving your website only. With dedicated hosting you will usually get several hundred gigabytes of data traffic. CDN CDN (Content Delivery Network) is for the websites with high traffic. It means your website (or parts of your website) will be hosted on several servers around the world. When a visitor of your website requests a resource from the CDN, it will be referred to the server nearest to him, as to spread the server load over the different servers. This also has a speed advantage in that the nearer a server is located to the visitor, the less time it will take the visitor's PC to connect to that server. Cloud Hosting Cloud hosting is the most expandable type of hosting and consists of several servers acting as one. The CPU time and memory usage will be spread out over the different physical servers, so there is no bottleneck on a single server. Cloud hosting can be easily upgraded by adding additional servers to the cloud, which increases the CPU time and memory avaible. Please contact any Hosting Team moderator if you'd like to see changes placed here.

Give me a best web hosting directory!

Don't bother pasting stupid links . I am looking for a web hosting directory with the following features. 0 Affiliate LinksNo Bidding for listing what so everCompletely user drivenNice Design I have grown tired of all these overselling web hosts, and even more annoyed with the so called top directories advertising affiliate links. Give me legit stuff or death . *If you are having a hard time, something like dmoz , why don't consider webhostdir , Most of the directories are affiliated or just paid ones. No one will make quality directory without having some profit. And most of the directories are listing the same companies with the same manner so basically, you may need personal approach on this . Of course the end user experience is not always relevant but who knows.

2 Domains to a new site - best practice?

I have just built a new website and have purchased 2 domains for it, the .co.uk version and the .com version. What i'm looking to do is have both the domains point to the site, having done some reading i can see a few options but being new to this side of things i can't get my head round it all properly! A 301 redirect seems to be the generally preferred option, however this always seems to be in relation to existing pages where people don't want to loose or incur penalty's on their page ranking etc... However, i don't have any page ranking as yet as the site will be going live once i figure the best way forward with this issue. So is a 301 still my best option If it is, do i have to purchase a 2nd hosting plan so i can assign 1 domain to each and place a .htaccess file in one or the others root directry\t Purchasing a 2nd hosting plan wouldn't be my preferred option as obviously i'm increasing my costs. I have registered the domains and taken hosting with the same company, HeartInternet, they offer the ability to configure an automatic redirect for one of the domains but will this be classed as duplicate content etc. and will i then incur penalty's with search engines I have also read about Domain Mapping, this generally seems to be in relation to blogs but it seems that this would also achieve my goal of having 2 domains pointing at the site... again though i am unsure as to the consequences of setting it up this way in terms of adverse affects with search engines. Any advice on my best way forward with this would be much appreciated!

Host from which country is the best ?

, Today internet is so popular and borderless, people do business worldwide and hosting company comes from many countries. As we know US companies are expanding and open up data centres in Indian, China, Malaysia and Singapore to capture the new growing market. Frankly speaking cost in these countries is much lower and hosting company is making good income if they offer the same rate as US counterpart. They still make good money if the offer the same price as US counterpart. Let see the opinion from members, which country is your preferred choice and why

My hosting company went down can I recover my domain?

I went with www.thenuke.net for hosting. Not a very well known company but seemed like a good deal and somebody recommend them. Anyway it's not proven to be a good choice because a few weeks ago my site went down and now it seems their whole company has gone and if you check their URL it's just one of those 'links page'. Okay so I made a mistake going with these but I registered www.cardifflair.com when I signed up for the hosting. When I do a 'whois' it's registered under my name. I was wondering if there was any way to recover this domain name and host it with somebody else

Anyone have experience w/this hosting co?

Hi , I was wondering if anyone out there has had experience with Mysitespace: http://www.mysitespace.com/ I have a client who is currently with Verio. They want to switch, as they are paying $49.95 for their plan. I'm sort of a new comer and don't know too much about these hosting companies, but I'm generally very skeptical when there is such a difference in price. Here's just a small sample from one of their plans which costs only $6.00 : Hosting Plan Details * 800MB disk space * 20GB (12,000MB) monthly data transfer * Support for your own domain * 5 sub domains * 5 MySQL databases * Unlimited FTP Access * SSH Support * Powerful xController Control Panel The "one catch" they mention is the following: We do show a small "Free Hosting by MySiteSpace.com" link at the bottom of your site. In addition we do limit you to certain file types, but do support everything needed for a basic web site. Compared with a partial list of my client's plan with Verio: * 10 GB of monthly data transfer * 300 MB diskspace * 30 configurable POP/Webmail e-mail accounts * 30 mail forwards * 30 autoresponders Can anyone offer some advice please

In the market for a new hosting provider

I have become dissatisfied with iPowerWeb as I am now unable to load text files into my db's through PHPMyAdmin. I cannot get a straight answer from them as to why this has changed. I'd be happy to load it from the command prompt if they offered that, and the LOAD DATA INFILE method is locked down as well. They offer a buggy script that apparently does'nt support my tables design. So, I am in the market for a new hosting provider. I am looking for customer testimonials, not marketing pitches. Please no affiliate links or shameless plugs from hosting companies. Here is what I am looking for: 1. Linux/Apache 2. MySQL 3. PHP 4. Support for loading text files to MySQL either through LOAD DATA INFILE (either from the command prompt or a script) or PHPMyAdmin. 5. Web stats 6. Extreme reliability BTW, this is for my onlineshoppingexpress.com site. I have multiple other domains hosted by them that I would eventually move as they come up for renewal, so a multiple domain solution would be nice.

U.K. hosting plans needed

250 - 500mb space PHP >= 4 2-5 MySQL databases. Cron job support A few pop3 mailboxes 2 - 4 gig data transfer per month Preferably running a recent distro. of linux (cron). [mod_rewrite would be nice. Sane php config i.e. magic quotes off, reg. globals off] Domain name registration. U.K. based. Stable! I'm willing to spend about 50 a year, bit tight I know. Can draft in extra funds, so probably 50 to a max. of 75. Will keep in mind all posts; not able to sign up immediately, just checking out competition. This thread will be kept bookmarked for my future reference.
