Everything you need to know about hosting
Hello and welcome back! My name is Victor Romero and in this chapter, we are going to speak about Hosting and what you need to know about it.
If you are going to go online, first things first: you need a domain and a hosting.
You have to register the domain and the hosting under your name from the very beginning to avoid scams. So, all updated and pertinent information will go to you directly, first. Not to tertiary parties.
What is a Hosting?
If you are going to be on the internet, you need to:
This would be like having the address of your house, your house and the land where your house is built in, the land is the hosting. The hosting is the structure in which all the other items will be built on.
Many ¨companies” offer unlimited hosting, plenty of benefits and even they let you host more than one website, just paying $5 a month.
It is not about who is offering more benefits, or better prices, it is about the service that they are providing, to avoid a later ¨time out or 404 error¨
We have 5 issues that could turn your business into a chaos.
1) Unlimited and shared hosting:
This alternative of hosting is very well-known, but we have to understand that nothing can be totally unlimited. Reading the small letter is recommended.
Be aware that when it says ¨we will give you unlimited hosting¨, in ¨Terms and Conditions¨ it says that it includes from 50 thousand and 500 thousand idones, when you reach this amount they will suspend the account due to saturation.
What is an Inode? an idone is one file and every file is contemplated as one inode in the online world.
2) We will help you build your website in minutes.
Hosting suppliers have tools that it makes the website development easy, it’s called a builder, it is sold like the lasted discovery of all times! But this tools will help you start, but they will not give you a website like Microsoft or Apple, this is why there are different web developers that will help you achieve your goals.
3) We will boost your website in google and you will pay $2 per month.
You honestly think that with $2 per month customers are going to reach your website, like out of the blue? don’t be fooled, it is only a way of helping you index your information the correct way and nothing more than that.
4) About technical features:
In the world of Hosting, It is important for you to know, What platform you are acquiring? Where the data centers are? How much of bandwidth it is offered? are backups included? What about security systems, is my website safe?
It is important that your suppliers understand and know how to handle these technologies. The hosting platforms are based on Linux and Windows, depending what you need.
Nowadays well known technologies are Cpanel and parallels.
The most common operating system that are used today are Centos for Linux and windows server 2012 R2. for windows
5) Script developers
Systems such as ¨Fantastico¨ and ¨Softaculous among other help to easily install multiple scripts. Softcaulous allows you install 400 scripts with a few simple clicks
