Cloud Hosting and their SLA

Cloud Hosting has become extremely important now days and one of the major internet invention of the decade. The reason behind its importance is server uptime guarantee. For ex. We can consider Google.com. From my experience of last 8 years, we have never faced such a situation that Google.com is down and it’s not working. This is a rare condition from everyone’s experience point of view. Now let’s see how cloud servers are setup and what makes them run for such a long time without any issues as compared to our normal physical servers.
Cloud servers are setup on clusters base. Due to this if in case any of the cloud clusters goes down then other cloud cluster takes the charge and we do not have to face any downtime. The same thing happens in case if the cloud server gets overloaded with major amount of requests. After seeing Cloud working, we will see various benefits of Cloud Hosting.
Benefits of Cloud Hosting:
Cloud servers can be accessed through internet from any part of the world.
Cloud servers use VMware virtualization techniques to create virtual servers.
Cloud servers are most reliable, scalable, affordable, flexible, secured for small, medium and large businesses.
Cloud VPS servers are getting more popular now by days as they available at affordable prices.
With Cloud servers, in order to upgrade hardware like RAM, we do not have to reboot the servers as auto-scalable RAM is available as per website traffic.

Future of Cloud Hosting:
Cloud Hosting is becoming more important now days seeing the importance from uptime as well as business point of view. Cloud hosting will be the need of future and has long way to go. As mentioned above regarding Cloud SSD VPS are getting more famous. Customers are getting more benefits with Cloud SSD VPS. Solid-State-Drive (SSD) VPS utilizes SSD drives which are 5 times more faster than normal drives and helps to increase server speed with less chances of disk failure. Cloud platform provides reliable, scalable and 100% uptime guarantee. Many large organizations have already transferred their data to Cloud Hosting platform. In past few years as the competition is increasing among major ISP’s and this has adversely affected prices for cloud hosting. Due to, a lot of cost cutting on Cloud hosting, mid level businesses have also migrated to Cloud platform. Small businesses or organization also have chance to improvise their own business by shifting their gear towards Cloud servers. Seeing benefits of Cloud Hosting, it looks like Cloud infrastructure will become fixed web servers in coming years.
Service Level Agreement:

We are talking about Cloud Hosting and we know that Cloud Servers are most reliable and offer 100%

uptime guarantee but still it’s very important as a customer to view Service Level Agreement (SLA) carefully before signing up with any Cloud Hosting service provider. SLA contains various terms and customers should understand each and every term and what exact solutions they are providing in case some issues occur. SLA, doesn’t provide uptime guarantee. However, hosting providers will remunerate in case if customers are facing downtime. Service Level Agreement varies from company to company. So it’s good have knowledge about SLA of companies customers are willing to sign up. Customer’s needs to think about various company SLA’s and decide which company would be better in case of any difficulty and their SLA can give confidence.
At last, I would like to mention here that customers need to think about Cloud platform. Considering competition in every field and in businesses, everyone needs to provide something different and new features to Clients. Cloud Hosting would be a good change.

Making a recommendation for a VPS web hosting provider not only provides an extra resource for your website visitors, but can earn your some very generous commissions. You have got nothing to loose from trying.

Why avoiding Unlimited Web Hosting Plan is the Smart Way to Go

Anyone in the market for a Website hosting  has certainly come across a hosting company offering unlimited bandwidth and unlimited disk space as part of their hosting packages. How do they do this? How physically, can they offer unlimited disk space when each server has a finite amount of disk space available for use? Perhaps more importantly, how can they offer unlimited bandwidth when the Internet does indeed have limitations?

Some consumers see the term unlimited and assume that they can’t go wrong. This is merely a marketing ploy just like unlimited minutes on your cell phone or unlimited trips to the salad bar. At some point, there will be a limit. And in most cases, it’ll cost you.

So why are unlimited plans even around? Because there are still consumers that just don’t know enough about Web hosting and assume that bigger is better. They generally see a low cost plan (sometimes under £10/month, watch out!) and don’t think twice. If you have a business Web site, the least you should be paying for quality Web hosting is £20 per month.

However, if you decide to go that route, be sure to read the fine print. Unlimited hosting packages generally have terms dictating that when you reach a certain point, they can either raise the cost of hosting drastically or even shut down your Web site! Remember, they’re in business to make money and aren’t going to run their business at a loss to simply retain your business.

So what can you do to avoid a hosting nightmare? First, find a hosting company where you can actually talk to a live person. This may sound obvious, but many large hosting providers only offer technical support via email with up to 24-hour response times. If your site goes down, are you willing to wait 24 hours for a response? Check to see if they even list a phone number on their Web site. Many large hosting providers don’t and consumers don’t even think to look for it until something is wrong with their site.

Second, discuss your needs with the Web hosting company. While most companies have set packages, some will be willing to customize hosting plans so that you only pay for the services you need. If a host isn’t willing to discuss the needs of your site with you, how helpful are they going to be as your site expands and your requirements increase?

Finally, plan for your growth. Don’t simply choose the cheapest plan because it meets your current needs. Assume that your Web site is going to increase its traffic over time and be sure that when it does, there are no hassles or downtime. Pay a little bit more if you have to because in Website hosting especially, you get what you pay for.

If you have a Web site for your business, Web hosting is the most critical aspect because without it, your site is useless. Knowing that your hosting provider is dependable and responsive can make all the difference because ideally, the only time you ever really need to talk to them is when something is wrong. It all comes down to the idea that if they’re willing to be deceitful to get your business by offering an unlimited plan, how can you be confident that they’ll be honest when you need them the most? Taking time to select the right host can make all the difference and let’s face it, while there is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth and unlimited disk space, there also is no such thing as 100% uptime. You’ll need your host, so choose wisely.

When to upgrade to Virtual Dedicated Hosting (VPS Hosting ) ?

Most webmasters on the net today are familiar with what the industry calls “shared” web hosting accounts. A shared hosting account is where you rent a small amount of space on a server which is shared among many other users.

This is a cheap way to get started online but it has many disadvantages – you will encounter email delivery problems because of spam complaints against other sites on the same server. You will find your site’s grinding to a halt when someone else does some heavy database work on your server. You might even find your site going down because of a denial of service attack against someone else hosting hacking or piracy related material on your server (these type of sites attract antisocial elements!)

How can you avoid all of this Problems of shared hosting ?

By upgrading to a virtual dedicated server. A virtual dedicated server lets you run your sites as if you had your own “dedicated” server, except it is cheaper because you are really just using part of a server that has been split into multiple virtual dedicated servers.

You can find out more about this by searching Google for “virtual dedicated hosting”. Virtuozzo or XEN cloud VPS Servers is the main commercial software that web hosts use to run virtual hosting services.

You will find virtual dedicated server accounts starting at just 25GBP a month. You’ll get a much larger chunk of bandwidth compared to shared hosting, and none of the problems that go with a shared host. You can also get multiple IP addresses that are exclusive to your sites.

So what’s the catch? Not much. You’ll probably spend a bit more on hosting each month. The main disadvantage of upgrading to virtual dedicated hosting is that you will need to be more technically proficient so that you can administer the server.

This requires a bit of time learning the necessary Linux skills to make sure your server runs smoothly. So the best way if you are non technical is to go for managed VPS Hosting  and recently for high mysql usage you will get SSD VPS Servers that can boost website performance.

Many hosting providers will have a “premium” support offering that includes a bit more hand holding – this is definitely recommended if you don’t have much experience with Linux, or are new to virtual dedicated hosting.

With the increased speed and bandwidth that a virtual dedicated host offers, and none of the shared hosting headaches, the move is one you will never regret.

 

 

UK Dedicated Server or UK Cloud VPS Hosting ?

Most times when you want to choose a hosting service for your website you are undecided about the level of resources you need. It is clear that for a small site that does not have many visitors will choose a shared hosting package.
What do you do when you have a site (or more) memory consuming, is more traffic and require more storage space? Obviously, you think of a solution that suits you and you consider one of the following: VPS or dedicated server.
Further, but you can not decide on one or another but in the following we will analyze advantages and disadvantages of the two solutions, VPS and dedicated server and will highlight the differences between them.
First, a Virtual Private Server, VPS is a server with virtual stands on a physical machine on which there are several other virtual servers.
VPS is different from a dedicated server in that it does not have all the proper performance of the server (RAM, storage space, CPU), but divides the total resources of physical server other VPS and from some Webmasters can this be considered a disadvantage. But that advantage is based visualization environment, there is the possibility that the same physical server to install VPS’s with different OS (Linux, Windows, etc. ..).
As the dedicated, VPS client has root access, but may be limited by the installation of various software provider that may have an exceedingly high CPU consumption and that would affect other VPS operation. Meanwhile, data on the VPS are highly secure virtual server on each side even if there is root access on each of them.
On the other hand, a dedicated server machine is a physical property which is rented entirely to one client and he has the entire performance of the server.
The UK dedicated servers are more efficient (faster, stronger) as Himself physical skills permit.
The major advantage of dedicated servers is their absolute control over you and it is the customer is also a difference between the two hosting solutions.
On a dedicated server is at the discretion of the customer to install any software you want (even operating system), without depending on the provider, as long as they are not illegal.
Some hosters offers technical support for both VPS and dedicated to, but in many cases support is counterproductive because the customer cost is responsible for administration.
If we refer to the price generally VPS’s are cheaper, depending on features, but not necessarily the norm to find VPS cheaper than some dedicated. The dedicated but also to consider costs on other licenses for the server (cPanel, the backup software).
If high performance hardware and absolute control is important for you, then dedicated server is the solution you need.

What is HDD ?

HDD stands for Hard Disk Drive. These drives have been used in many electronics devices since more than decade. They contain rotating disk with magnetic head.  Due to the moving parts they are more prone to get damaged, if the read/write processes are being performed vigorously. They also take more time load OS as compared to SSD drives. We can also here the noise done by them at time of booting process and also while performing read/write operations.

  1. It contains no moving parts. Due to this they are more durable as compared with HDD drives.
  2. They have much faster read/write speed with compared to HDD drives.
