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.
