A slew of Internet advertisers across the world have shown how simple it can be to open a successful business from the ground up. By using only a few hours of your spare time and an Internet connection, you will be able to master the basics of marketing on the Internet.

Even though it is easy, there are still a few concepts you must understand and without prior knowledge, you may hit a few stumbling blocks along the way. For instance, website design is one of these skills that you must know to create a presence as an online business.

All websites must have coding and it can be a time-consuming process making the links functional and the layout perfect. It is a wise idea to think about using a site builder to help you get going quick; site builders are more friendly to the average user as opposed to design tools and manual coding. The following are several more website builder benefits. Read the rest of this entry…

Because dedicated servers are costly, it is imperative for business owners to determine whether or not the servers are worth the price. While the bottom line is certainly a main decision-making factor, it should not be the sole one; there are several other points to take into consideration.

The following are several advantages for businesses that use a dedicated server as opposed to a shared server:

– Better Scalability
– Dedicated Resources
– Greater Flexibility
– Higher Speeds
– Increased Power
– More Control
– Stronger Security

If these are features you feel are beneficial to your business, a dedicated server is your best choice. Read the rest of this entry…

In the world of free web hosts, there are very few decent services to choose from.  The one that seems to be the most popular by far today though is 000Webhost is run by the paid/premium web host “Hosting24“, which uses 000Webhost as it’s “free trial” program.  The hosting plans feature pack is nothing short of incredible for a free hosting company.  With 100GB of transfer and 1.5GB of storage space, what could possibly hold you back?

As an experiment, we decided to host a WordPress blog with them.  Our plan was to load it with multiple add-ons, third party scripts, and throw as much traffic as we could at them.  In theory, it would be nothing short of a miracle if the site lasted a day, since it was free after all.  Free hosting services don’t like you to use all their resources like that; they want to save it for their paying customers.

The first issue we ran into was with the automatic installation program.  When you sign up for 000Webhost, you are given what they call a CPanel.  We believed it to be a clone of the actual program, but just as well we wanted to try out the features anyway.  Just like CPanel, there is a “Fantastico AutoInstaller” program to use, and it has WordPress available.  However when we tried to install WordPress, we got this message:

“We are upgrading autoinstaller at the moment. We do not have exact date when it wil be finished.  However, you can upgrade account and immediately start using another autoinstalled that has 50 scripts ready to install in one click!”

There’s something wrong with this picture.  This is obviously a ploy to get people to buy hosting plans from hosting24 (that’s what happens when you click their link).  We know this because we’ve been tracking this error message for the past 4 months, from January 2010 to April 2010.  If they were planning on resolving this issue, it would have been done by now.

So we had to install WordPress the old fashioned way, through FTP.  No big deal really.  We uploaded the program and it took just shy of a half hour, which isn’t great but it could have been worse.  Then we set-up the MySQL database & ran the 5-minute-install without any trouble.

Next we had to install our add-ons, and that’s when we started having a little trouble.  While using WordPress itself to download & install multiple add-ons at once, we saw intermittent times where both the web server and MySQL server would not respond for a few minutes.  Sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn’t.  This issue lasted for about two hours, and then the servers were working fine again.

Now that we had all of our data uploaded (including some forum posts), it was time to send traffic to them.  The easiest way we though of to do this was to simply purchase traffic from one of the SEO boards, as they sell cheap traffic all the time.  Now this traffic isn’t going to probably pay much attention to the site or click on anything, but what it would do is suck up all the bandwidth pretty quick as the pages would still be loaded.

We bought 10,000 visitors, spread them out over 5 days (2000 visitors/daily), and divided them among a few different posts.  The visitors started coming about 3 days after we purchased them, and for about 36 hours or so things were running quite smoothly.  We tracked both our web server and SQL server with a PING program from our computer and it resulted with an up-time of about 97%, which was acceptable.  But then we started noticing that our visitors had stopped.  We also got an e-mail stating:  “Your account has been temporarily suspended due to SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY, please contact an administrator”.

Using the forum board, we were able to contact one of their administrators via PM.  We didn’t explain to them the experiment that we were doing as we felt it would compromise the results.  What we wanted was to be treated like the common user.  The administrator took a look into the log file and told us that in order to use that much bandwidth, we would have to purchase hosting from hosting24.  Apparently, the amount of data transfer posted on the “features” page is only where the system automatically caps it.  If an administrator sees a large spike in bandwidth though, they will manually suspend your account.

We did get our account back after telling the administrator just who we were and what we were doing, and we didn’t have any issues after that.  But the lesson learned here is that if you have a site that has a lot of traffic, you can’t really milk 000Webhost for all their worth.  But for a personal website or small blog it should be alright.

Being one of the most popular and HostGator Review Couponslargest hosting providing companies on the net to date everyone would pretty much expect you to know them – it’s easy to know of them but you probably haven’t tried out their service which is why this review like all the others are in place.  Unfortunately a lot of reviews on the Internet are made up but i can assure you this one is not and it’s an honest decision from an honest Hostgator client, who has been one for many years.

The good thing myself and thousands of other webmasters have found with Hostgator is that their service and support is top notch – it’s also one of the cheapest providers out there so that’s definitely half if not the full battle. Many visitors to the Hostgator website are hesitant to try out their service at first because most webmasters know Hostgator oversell their disk space and monthly transfer – meaning they sell space and monthly transfer they can’t completely promise you’ll have although it’s very likely. Now there are some good and bad points about overselling but I’ll not discuss it in much detail other than saying by overselling their services they are providing you with a still reliable and very cheap service you’ll not find in many other places, and this is why i feel Hostgator is definitely one of the best hosting providers out there.

The Hostgator support is one of the most helpful and has a very prompt response time whichever support method you use so you can guarantee that if you need help with anything related to hosting an experienced support or sales assistant will be there at your doorstep. Most support requests are answered within minutes no matter what time or day you require it as they guarantee that 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year their in house staff will be available to answer your requests – this to me is already worth paying that small monthly fee for and not only do you get prompt support you also get a very reliable service from a committed hosting provider.Host Gator Review

Online success depends on many factors.  Basically we will need one domain name, and one web hosting service, to start with.  Afterwards we can decide about the actual erection of the website and the content that is to be uploaded to its webpages.  But to start our online business, the hosting webspace and domain are needed first.
