WordPress hosting is generally supported by most shared hosting services. When you have your own WordPress blog from WordPress.org, you will usually need to find a hosting website that will host it at a low cost. The larger ones can offer this.

By using a shared hosting account, you also have the benefits of site builders or the use of other content management systems to get you started.

WordPress is perfect if you are looking for something small and easy to create a blog – it is easier than making your own from scratch. WordPress is extremely easy to update so that you do not need to go through every page that you have to fix links and you can also make it go live easily and quickly. It is generally considered one of the best options if you truly want a low income generating blog for fun.

Less Downtime Problems with Managed Hosting

Posted by Doug on May 21, 2011 in Dedicated Hosting with No Comments


One of the biggest problems with running on a shared server is that there could be a lot of downtime. This is because there are just so many other websites on the same server as you. This can cause problems due to other users going over their restricted amount of CPU usage.

Downtime is a problem, especially for business websites, and it is very important that it is limited as much as possible. This is gained through opting for managed hosting.  Since you are on a dedicated server, you will not suffer problems on your own website because of others.

However, that does not mean your website uptime will be 100 percent. You do need to bear in mind that there are possibilities there will be a problem with the hardware of the server. However, with this type of hosting, there is better support so you are sure to be kept in the loop whenever there is a problem and be told what is being done to fix it.

International Free Joomla Templates

Posted by Doug on March 13, 2011 in Content Management with No Comments


People who use Joomla to build their websites, turn to the community for advice, or become members of the community themselves, are located all around the world. Joomla has kept this in mind when designing and building their own free Joomla templates and online community magazine. Not everyone who uses Joomla, no matter the reason, speaks the same language.

Joomla magazine can be read in many different languages besides English including Japanese, Arabic, German, Thai and the list goes on. Members wanting to contribute a story to the magazine can do so in the language of their choosing. When it’s time to submit a story they simply click on the language link they want to submit it to.

It is easy to read the magazine in a different language as well. There is a menu located in the upper right hand corner of every web page with the word translation written next to it. Members look through the menu for the language they prefer and click on it. The website is then quickly translated into that language.

Benefits of Shared Hosting for Personal Websites

Posted by Doug on March 6, 2011 in Shared Hosting with No Comments


Shared hosting has many benefits and the main one is that it is affordable for those who want personal websites. These personal websites can be anything from free to use sites that generate no income or those that have advertisement revenue programs or affiliate marketing programs integrated into it.

Most types of personal websites are accepted, such as informative websites or personal blogs. Those who are new to website development and maintenance are able to build up skills to see whether this is their forte or not. There are a number of extras that are gained through website hosting on a shared server basis, which makes website building a lot easier than going it alone.

It is perfect for those who do not want much from their websites and have no server-side programming. It means that these types of websites are more than likely going to be up and running the majority of the time because it requires less than many other websites on these servers.

Reseller Hosting – Advertisements

Posted by Doug on February 26, 2011 in Reseller Hosting with No Comments


Since most of the resellers are motivated by increased revenue, advertisements can form a major source of revenue for reseller hosting provider. A reseller can have his own service for advertisements and can inject the advertisements onto any traffic that goes from its network. A reseller could also setup a contract with the original hosting service provider to use the advertisement framework of the original web service provider but share the revenues on the traffic coming from the reseller. Moreover, the reseller could remove the ads being served by the original hosting service provider and charge its end customers more for seeing websites with advertisements. The reseller can also tailor the advertisements to the location of the end customers since the reseller has more information about the end customer location than the host service provider himself. Clearly, a reseller can play with advertisements in order to make more money for itself many ways.

Dedicated Servers: Disadvantages of Cheap Hosting

Posted by Doug on February 19, 2011 in Dedicated Hosting with No Comments


Dedicated servers are deemed as the best form of cheap hosting because the client is able to use the full server that he is on. This offers a lot of benefits but at the same time there are a lot of risks possible with hosting through dedicated servers.

The main problem with dedicated servers is that the hardware is very old, which means that it will run slower than your website would on a shared server. That is even when the full server is used by a number of different types of websites. You will also usually have fewer features than you would on a shared hosting plan, which means that you could lose your site building privileges or your ability to host the number of websites that you have wanted.

You will also struggle to use your own advertisements because the dedicated server will use their own advertisements so that the loss of revenue can be generated through advertisement revenue. This could put you at a loss if this is something that you rely on.

Joomla vs. Dreamweaver

Posted by Doug on January 14, 2011 in Content Management with No Comments


If you are so used to maintaining a website through the use of Dreamweaver, it can become very tiring to need to take hours on just one simple thing. If you need to make a change then you will need to do each changes one by one and you can soon run out of time on changes rather than adding the extras that you wanted to.

With Joomla hosting, it is possible to take care of everything in less time than you would making changes with your usual manual website options. Even making the smallest change with Dreamweaver will cause lots of time being spent to fix all pages whereas Joomla will take care of those small problems for you. You can reorder your menus without needing to worry about any other changes that it will force you to make.

With Joomla, you can also add a new design to a different page easily and with one click, unlike having to make each change slowly through the use of your Dreamweaver.
