How the Concept Was Developed and How it Affects Us All Today

May 11th, 2013 § Comments Off on How the Concept Was Developed and How it Affects Us All Today § permalink

web-hostingMost things in life have a history. A place or point in time that their journey began. To understand the magic that this type of thing can be, one has to understand where it came from. The concept of a coupon first graced the world back in the late 1880s when it was first used to get people to partake of a little known product of the time called Coca Cola. Other companies like C.W. Post soon jumped on the bandwagon and the world of coupons was on its way.

“Couponing has become an art,” some people have said, and in a sense that can be perceived as true. There are millions of Americans who have turned to couponing as a way to save money on their food bill mainly, and in recent times on things like clothes, shoes, hair and makeup, and even on web hosting packages amazingly enough. In almost all cases, getting a hosting coupon code is like having an extra goodie in your party bag. In the world of web hosting, it has become the norm to offer extended and even specialized services in the form of coupons.

Most web hosting coupons, such as a Hostgator coupon, have a standard format that they come with. From the research that was done for this article, the most popular ‘goodie’ that these coupons offer today is a percentage off the sign up price for the service. It can be from anywhere around $10 to 10%. How much of a discount is given off this aspect of the service is based on the company in question. Each company may just give a different ‘value’ to the coupon. Another ‘extra’ that seems to have become the norm is increased bandwidth on your account/site. More bandwidth means that you can do more with the site and have content that is a bit more complicated.

Still another extra is more disk space on the system of the server. Whether or not your site is a big monstrosity with over 100 pages or it is a baby at 5 pages, you can always do with more disk space to store files, data for your site updates and even other information that relates to the running of your site. This one is a favorite of most customers because it simply allows them to do more.

Finally, customer service, this is a big issue for a lot of website owners who depend on their hosting service to deal with the technical challenges of their sites. To most, if not all of them, it is by far the most important aspect of the service. The ability of the hosting company to deal with any and all issues of their site is the reason why most potential clients choose certain hosting services. It is because of excellent customer service. Overall, couponing has affected us all in some form or fashion. Even in the world of web hosting firms, coupons have changed the way that we all build our sites and operate our businesses online.

UK Web Hosting: Serving Non-UK Customers

March 8th, 2011 § Comments Off on UK Web Hosting: Serving Non-UK Customers § permalink

When non-UK customers use UK web hosting providers to host their website, there are always going to be some challenges that a UK customer would not have to undergo. Non-UK customers will come under the umbrella of International Law if nothing works between a UK webhosting provider and the customer. As a result, the legal wrangling that ensues can be long and precarious. In addition, the laws of the two countries, the customer’s country and the UK, may not be compatible with each other and hence a customer might inadvertently break the law and find him or herself in the middle of a lawsuit. The financial laws, the value added taxes law and even the employee labor laws are likely to differ from the customer’s home country. The customer should consider the law situation before deciding to host their website with a UK webhosting provider. If the customer has to fly to UK occasionally, the customer should also account for the cost of the flight.

January 18th, 2011 § Comments Off on The Public Cloud Hosting Is the One That Most People See § permalink

There are indeed two different types of cloud hosting.  The public clouds are the ones that you use when you are using such web sites as Google Mail or Yahoo, or when you have logged into your Facebook account.  They shared the computer servers that are hooked up to that public cloud and experience the benefits of the expanded usability and the associated heightened access to servers that might be all over the world.

The web sites that you put up on the internet through a cloud is placed on that public one that has the ability to keep expanding when you need additional disc space or functionality for some of those complicated scripts that people have a tendency to run.  The public cloud, its name taken from the drawings of clouds on diagrams on paper whenever the internet is discussed, has a very important purpose. That is to serve as many web sites as possible and to keep them all on the Internet and functioning properly.

Probably one of the biggest benefits that others see is the way that your page loads so much faster than others in your niche because of the scripting that does not get in the way of the web browser but actually helps it to load.

Limitations of Shared Hosting

October 24th, 2010 § Comments Off on Limitations of Shared Hosting § permalink

Shared hosting has a lot of benefits, such as the ability to host a personal website for an affordable price, but they are not the best thing for everybody. Depending on the plans, they will not benefit large businesses or those who want to host a number of websites on one account.

Website developers generally need a portfolio that they can show potential clients and the best way of doing this is to host a number of websites and provide links. However, there is sometimes a limit to the number of websites that you can have on your account, which can mean that you are stuck with only one or two websites in your portfolio. This is very limiting and does not show everything that you can do.

At the same time, you are usually limited to the amount of server-side programming that can be done, which is a problem when it comes to showing coding skills and the ability to add a lot to one page. In cases like this, sometimes another option is needed.
