How to Host Several Websites under One Account

If your hosting company offers the add-on domain feature (which will allow you to add different domains to the same hosting account) you will be charged a yearly fee for each domain you add, sometimes costing almost the same as your full hosting fee.

The solution is to open a reseller account. Reseller accounts were created to allow web designers to offer hosting services to their customers, to create a one-stop-shop for all their web design and hosting needs. However, you don\’t need to be a reseller to buy a reseller hosting plan.

Reseller accounts are usually slightly more expensive than regular hosting accounts, but they will allow you to host different domain names without incurring in the add-on domain fees, making more efficient use of your space and bandwidth.

You want to choose a reseller account that offers:

  • No limit to the number of domains you can add.
  • The possibility of hosting your main website free, without using any of the space and bandwidth in your hosting plan. If you are a reseller, your main website will be your business website, and the space and bandwidth will be reserved for your customers. If you are not a reseller and just want to manage different websites, you can designate one of your domains as your main website (usually the largest and/or most popular, since you won\’t accrue any space or bandwidth for it).
  • The possibility of upgrading to another plan without any penalties or fees.
    To find out how much space and bandwidth you will need, first determine how many sites you are likely to host, how many pages each site may have, and how many visits will those sites most likely have. If you plan to host 10 sites with 20 pages each, at an average of 50KB per page and 100 page views per site per day, you will need 10MB of space (10 x 20 x 50KB) and 1.5GB of bandwidth per month (10 x 100 x 50KB x 30).

As far as pricing is concerned, it all depends on your requirements and the hosting company you choose, so shop around to get the best possible deal in terms of cost and reliability.

What Is Web Hosting?

The best way to explain this is by comparing it to a real-life situation. A web hosting company as the owner of a shopping mall. The shopping mall owner invested a lot of money on hiring architects, constructors, engineers, etc. to build it. Now all the stores on it are empty and the owner is going to rent them to smaller businesses that can’t afford (or who simply don’t want) their own building.

As a small business owner, you can rent this store space on a per-month basis. But remember it is empty. So it will be your responsibility to decorate your store, fill it up with your own products, furniture and displays and to advertise your store to the world in order to get new customers.

The responsibility of the shopping mall owner is to keep and maintain the building in a top condition for your business to prosper. In the exact same manner, a hosting company invests a lot of money to set up high-speed connections and a full-fledged data center. And as a small business owner, you may rent virtual space on the web to set up your store and offer your products or services to the world.

When you set up your account it will also be empty and it will be up to you to design your own website (or hire a web designer to build one for you), and to advertise it to the world.

4 Factors in Choosing a Hosting Company

While choosing a web hosting company there are a lot of different factors that should go into your decision making process. The biggest factors should be:
1) Phone support:
Email support is nice, but email occasionally falls in between the virtual cracks. Getting someone on the phone when your site goes down can take a lot of mystery out of the entire process. Cpwebhosting offer toll free support and weekend hours to boot. Phone support is a great benefit for the cpwebhosting client.
2) Another factor to use in deciding whether to use a particular web hosting company is their history. How long has this company been in business? Web hosting companies that have been in existence for less than a year might not be the best choice. A hosting company with a proven track record and a ton of happy clients is certainly a good sign and might work well for you.
3) How about the company’s software?
This varies widely between web hosting companies. You will rather fond of Hsphere merely because you are used to it, where the buttons are and what the features do. It’s much easier to stick with something you know than switching to a new User Interface. Some web hosts offer FrontPage features and others don’t. Another specific area you might want to research is the statistics programs. What sort of web statistics software is included with your web hosting account? Is Awstats included? This is one area you definitely want to heavily research before signing up.
4) Fees:
You have to pay a little more to get all the features than fight it out with a sub par web hosting company who you can’t reach if your site goes down. You have found decent web hosting for as cheap as $4 per month but generally pay around $15 per month if you want all the bells and whistles that you’ll need to host a larger site. A lot of people worry about hosting fees, but you’ve had the experience that I generally get what I pay for. Finally, I’d look carefully at the web hosting company’s refund policy. Most offers a full refund if you aren’t happy with your service. If you are paying for a full year of web hosting up front, you might want to examine the company’s refund policy in detail.

Moving Web Site to another Host

If you like some of the features to be added to your website which are not supported by your old host,or if you are experiencing problems with your current host, or maybe you need a company with a quality web site hosting service capable of helping you when something goes wrong. In all these situations you need to migrate your server to new server for your website. Moving your website from your current host to another hosting provider could be easy or difficult depending on the type of your website.

If the Web Site you want to move is without databases you should take following steps:
sign up with the new web hosting provider

1) upload your web site files to your new hosting account

2) go to your domain name registrar and point your domain to servers of your new host. Typically you should enter names of the 2 nameservers of your new hosting company and save. Now your domain should be pointed to your new host. It usually takes up to 24 to 48 hours for a nameserver change to propagate on the net. If you bought your domain from your previous hosting company then you may have to contact them to do it.

3) Once the nameservers have updated you should cancel your hosting account with the old host

To cancel your account, you need to send in a ticket to your host\’s support requesting the account to be cancelled. Be sure that you have all of your files and data backed up.

You should now have your site hosted by your new host and your old company account canceled.

If the Web Site you want to move uses databases you should take following steps:

sign up with the new hosting provider

backup your database, get it and store it on your PC. This way you ensure that no database information is lost. Upload your web site to the new hosting account. Create a database with the same name as your old database and the restore it using the backup file go to your domain name registrar and point your domain to servers of your new host. Typically you should enter names of the 2 nameservers of your new hosting company and save. Now your domain should be pointed to your new host. It usually takes up to 48 hours for a nameserver change to propagate on the net. If you bought your domain from your previous hosting company then you may have to contact them to do it

we recommend to temporarily stop your web site until the nameservers update. This will prevent data to be written to the database on the site on your previous account

once the nameservers have updated you should cancel your hosting account with the old host

How to choose a good Webhost

Everyday there are about thousands of websites being build .So as a consequence there are now thousands of web hosts around the globe today. How do people decide to choose you?

Potential customers will talk to friends; perhaps ask a local web design group; or consult their ISP (Internet Service Provider); but this may result in knowledge of only one or two hosting companies. There are hosting directories, and review sites which may be governed by whoever pays for the largest ad or personal opinions that seem popular. The visitor will still have to make the final decision.

If these visitors make their own decisions, and there are thousands of web hosts to choose from, there are very few seconds to deliver your offer, which must be instantly obvious. What can you do to turn this streaming traffic into sales?

First View The look of your web site

Are the design, content and delivery up to customer expectations? If the presentation has obviously been thought about; a conscientious effort to delivery and content; then it is likely the visitor will believe that the hosting company will also look after their site conscientiously. If the presentation is poor, then forget it, there are more than enough web hosts that look good. Of course, to the other extreme, if the web host‘s site looks a million dollars, it is likely that the visitor will be expecting to a pay a ‘million’ too!

The Initial Offers What are your best packages?

With the sudden growth of the web, the hosting industry has had to take a retail approach to content delivery. In the retail trade the offers are so many, that the customer has to learn to speed read, or speed view. Visitors to web hosting sites have not got the time to read all the details on each of every one of thousands of sites, so speed viewing is a must; or is it?

Web hosts who have nothing to sell usually hide this fact by showing columns of text, expecting the visitor to sort out what is good to them or not. The usual explanation for this is The visitor knows what they want and will find it without our hassling them. The expectation is that with less hassle the visitor will more likely become a customer. Not true.

Web hosts that have special offers, great deals, or offer specialized packages for say private, business or corporate customers; will tell you just that. Think about it, why hide the fact you have a winner? By taking a retail approach to a very retail business, the real deal makers are not ‘backward in coming forward’.

Obviously making everything on the site an ‘excellent’ offer is the other extreme. Most web hosts offer 90% of what their competition offers, so to point out every good point offered would be overkill. The likely result would be that you would show the visitor that you are new to the industry, and less experienced; not good in times of future support.

By pointing out the great points in the best reasonable packages, you will catch the eye of the traffic, until previously, zooming past you

Feature offered

The features that cpwebhosting are offering:
The followings are some of the features you\’ll see in most cpwebhosting plans:

  • H-sphere Control Panel
    It is an interface where you can access your site on the web server, allowing you to set-up and subsequently update and customize your web site. Though H-Sphere cPanel is by far the most popular control panel.
  • Disk space
    A vast majority of sites that don\’t have tons of graphics, sound and video clips or downloadable files easily fit in 50 MB of disk space. You should always leave yourself some room for growth or check if the host has a bigger plan in case you need to upgrade.
  • Bandwidth
    Bandwidth is the amount of data transmitted or received through a unit of time. In web hosting, bandwidth is consumed when visitors make requests for files on your web site and download them to their personal computers.
  • Email Account
    With POP3 email accounts you can check email from Outlook, Netscape Mail, Eudora or any other Email software.
  • Scripting language
    As all our top 10 listings are using Unix and Linux platform, php, perl and CGI are the languages we are talking about here. It is best to choose a host that supports the latest version to maximize the latest web technologies for the fee that you pay.
  • Database
    If your web site is going to store a lot of data that should be dynamically accessible (like user accounts, stock prices, maps, Interactive news, message boards and forum etc.), you\’ll need to look for an account that offers a database. MySQL is a powerful and most popular database program that runs on the Linux operation system. It is able to handle million of entries all at once. Its flexibility and speed allow you to also store logs and pictures. MySQL is designed to scale well under heavy traffic conditions and is ideal for database-intensive or e-commerce-enabled Web sites.

Windows Web Hosting Provider

Microsoft windows server2012 R2 is the latest virtualized version but according to a report 61% of businesses are still using Windows server 2003, just 4 months before Microsoft pulls plug on support. An average of £40,000 per company has been set for Windows Server 2003 migration-related projects representing a multi-billion dollar opportunity for IT professionals. The survey says that 8% are intended to keep Windows Server 2003 but 72% are scared about compatibility factor to upgrade with other systems and services. Some 74% are confirmed to migrate to move to a virtualized environment naming Windows Server 2012 R2 as it is a latest version.

Windows next version: a two faced beast:

Windows Server has been worked to support running cloud services like Azure better and if anyone wants a private cloud then Microsoft provides both Windows Azure Pack to give IaaS hosting with cloud style subscriptions and fast VM installation.

  • Power Shell and DSC : Power Shell system allows user to write configurations once and automatically install and remains constant across multiple machines. DSC increases the running of entire cloud data centre with software defined networking which is used to monitor the network Quality of service.
  • Deep Re-factoring : It is the process for Windows Server vNext which delivers a layered architecture that introduces current concept of server roles into the OS to make it more modular. Lowest layer is the cloud optimized server that will be run by Azure. Top layer is the full server that user will use for an on-premise Windows server system.

Migration to cloud:

For migration to cloud user has two options which are IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) or PaaS (Product as a Service). IaaS is straight forward so user can establish a VM to the cloud provider of his choice, install IIS on that VM then migrate the web application from IIS server to the VM hosted in the cloud. This process is the same as user had used to migrate to a Server 2012 R2 server. The drawback of this method is that user has to remove all unwanted stuffs with the cloud hosted VM, which he had with the on-premises box.

PaaS is different from this. With the help of this, the cloud provider provides IIS hosting and user install his website to them. There is a responsibility of cloud provider to keep hosting platform and web app more secure. There are a number of third party vendors providing tools for migration. Anyone can reduce costs by migrating his website to a PaaS environment.

Cloud: a looming change in IT:

The new report has came after research named “The Great IT Upgrade”, which analyze the economic and technical field of end of life(EOL) on IT departments. Virtualization changed it powerfully. The VMs belonged to the departments that requested the project and are responsible for the existence. There should be one general price to provide the service of running application. The business value of the application should be scaled on the basis of incremental price for using resources.

Market survey:

According to the Web Server Survey, Responses are received from 878,346,052 sites and 5,192,428 web facing computers. Along with all major vendors suffering huge loss of hostnames in March, Microsoft has lost the whooping 8.0 million. It also has to suffer from small loss of market share due to increase in site with missing server banners. In terms of web facing computers, all popular server vendors have had absolute gains in this month. Microsoft is the largest gainer which broke its recent declining trends with 30% increase in market share.

Multiple Domain Hosting And Reduce Your Hosting Costs

Multiple Domain Hosting offers you to buy a single hosting plan and to divide up your apportioned hard drive and bandwidth into parts that could be assigned to other domains. This allows you to pay for a single hosting plan but to host multiple web sites. How many domains and web sites you will be allowed to have with your multiple hosting account depends on the particular hosting plan. Speaking of multiple domains an additional caution is needed. Some hosts refer to multiple domain hosting as a possibility to have multiple domains all pointing to the same web site. This is used primarily to increase web site traffic. This practice can be harmful as search engines may penalize you for doing so. In order to avoid misunderstandings you should be completely sure what specific host means by ‘multiple domain hosting’ before making final decision.

By hosting multiple domains we understand the ability to have many domains hosted with one web hosting account.Generally you don’t purchase a website you purchase a hosting account. In some cases this hosting account can only be used to host a single domain and hence a single website. In others the account can be used to host multiple domains and hence multiple websites.

There are of course both advantages and disadvantages of hosting several domains on a single hosting account.

The main advantage is, of course, the cost. Because domains are much cheaper than website hosting accounts choosing an account that offer multiple domain hosting is a far cheaper way of hosting multiple websites than purchasing a hosting account for each website.
