The Right Domain For You

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

When you build a website one of the first tasks you should take care of is choosing your domain name. Popular names sell very fast so it is important to deal with your domain name registration as soon as you decide a possible name. When trying to decide your new name make sure that it is connected to the nature of your website in some way so that people can easily associate your website with your chosen name and remember it easily.

It is possible for domain name registration to take place before you have a website, which is advisable. Many people buy their domain name from their web hosting company which is a lot easier as you can deal with everything at once. There are many different domain extensions such as dot com or dot net, all costing different amounts depending which extension you choose.

With many companies you can pay for extra services, such as privacy.

Reseller Or Dedicated Hosting

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Being a web hosting provider is a very competitive business, as many people today are building websites for personal and business use and therefore need reliable web hosting. Once you have decided to become a hosting provider you have to make the choice between reseller hosting or having your own dedicated server. Both owning your own dedicated server and choosing a reseller hosting option have disadvantages and advantages which will vary depending upon your circumstances and requirements.

Opting to have a dedicated server will give you more freedom with your customers’ hosting accounts, allowing you to configure the server any way you wish. You will have total control over the server which will guarantee security and the level of down time. However, a dedicated server is a very expensive option and you would have to be able to guarantee a minimum number of customers to cover the cost of the server. As you are totally in control of the server you will also have total responsibility for its performance and any problems will fall on your shoulders.

Reseller hosting can be completely transparent so that your clients do not realise you even have it. Your reseller package will also be maintained by the hosting company who provide the hosting so that you don’t have to have lots of technical knowledge.

Here at Host Store we have competitive reseller hosting packages that have full support from our professional team of experts as well as many added extras to help you offer a top quality hosting package to your clients at a reasonable price.
