How Web Hosting Services Can Enhance SEO Performance

Most people know that SEO, or Search Engine Optimization to give it its full name, is  among the most important types of online marketing. The overall aim of this marketing technique is to improve how the website is ranked with various search engines. It is because of this that people are always on the lookout for ways to enhance SEO and get the best possible results. One commonly discussed issue is whether or not the right web hosting can actually have a positive effect on SEO. Improving Page Loading Times Many of the techniques used in SEO involve the coding of the website in question, for example the meta tags, H1 and H2 headers and title tags, so it may seem odd to consider whether or not hosting has any effect on it. However, not too long ago, Google (the one search engine most people are interested in) announced that page speed was an important factor in he algorithms they use for search rankings. This means that websites which load faster should have a more favorable page rank. While there is plenty on the developer's side which can reduce loading time, it also makes sense to choose a hosting provider which can...

Web Hosting is actually a business where companies provide server space for websites or applications for the users in return to get a paid amount. The servers are remotely located at various locations worldwide, in rare case physical access is available to the servers. Different types of Web Hosting: Shared Web Hosting is probably the basic hosting form as well as the cheapest too. Shared web hosting means sharing a server rack with various clients. A client pays to service provider a small amount for any small space from the server. That server is also shared by various other clients of the provider. Resources are equally shared between the clients. Virtual Private Hosting is a medium hosting form. This sort of hosting is bought by mid ranged users or business organizations which may have a large traffic flow for their website along with they will require full server slot.

How to Choose the Right Data Centre Service for Business Needs

It is every company’s concern to protect its data and equipment. So, when choosing a data centre to house its critical information, it is important to take different factors into consideration. Factors to Consider When Choosing a Data Centre Security This is perhaps one of the most influential factors in choosing a data centre. A company should always be looking at its physical and logical security. While a two-factor authentication is good enough, a majority of businesses follow a three-factor authentication: what you are, what you have, and what you know. Look at all the security systems that the facility uses, making sure that it uses the best one in every level of security. The operator should be able to tell every person that is present in the data centre, including the time of his/her entrance and exit. Data Recovery Data should be accessible every time and people should be readily available to recover them. The ideal data centre is one that can let you recover the company’s IT environment and go back to business after suffering a power outrage. Service It is crucial to consider the services being offered by a facility operator. These include office space, accounting services,...

Exploring Content Piracy And Discovering What It Has Done To Web Hosting

The war waged by major record and movie companies on internet piracy as well as the numerous laws that were brought to the public attention and that eventually failed to be passed (SOPA for instance) is no secret to anyone. Without taking one side or the other in this seemingly never-ending series of battles – nobody can state with absolute certainty who the bad guys are at this point – let's explore a less familiar topic, namely the effects of online content piracy on web hosting. At the same time, we will also discuss some of the upshots of the battle between content owners and the pirates. Yarrr! How it all started Piracy dates from a simpler time, namely 1998, when the very first file sharing service – Napster – was born, allowing people from all over the world to download and share digital content (mainly music), with or without the permission of the copyright owners. On the very same year but at a prior date, an important act was passed in the US (the Digital Millennium Copyright Act). The DMCA had, at least in theory, the role to put an end to piracy by establishing a system of notification and...

A Decent Idea of How Everyone Spends on SEO

The “How Much Do You Spend On Online Marketing” infographic put out by InMotion Hosting is fairly accurate. For people new to online marketing, it offers a good idea on what you invest in with free or cheap hosting, though may not be so accurate when it comes to high-end and what they refer to as “top level elite hosting.” The reason I say this is because I don't believe that VPS and dedicated hosting can be accurately represented by this sort of breakdown. While it is stated that both obviously use more bandwidth, there's a clear issue that arises when you look at sudden drops in categories of spending. Click to Enlarge For example, take a look at the spread of overall spending in the advertising category. From the cheapest hosting to the most expensive, the amount spent is relatively even. This makes sense and acts according to what is expected. The problem comes when you compare that spending to the SEO and social media categories. The average spent by high-end hosting is half of what mid-range hosting spends when it comes to SEO. For social media,...

Why Your SEO is Reliant on Your Web Hosting

When people think of web hosting, they think of whether or not people are going to get to their website. But, they don't tend to think about whether their efforts in optimizing their websites for the search engines will be harmed by choosing a particular web host. Believe it or not, but who you choose to be your web host can significantly impact whether you rank high in the search engines or not. There are a few reasons for this. The first thing to consider is the time in which it takes your website to load. Matt Cutts, the lead engineer on the spam team and the overall SEO conduit for Google, said that load time is a factor that Google takes into consideration when ranking websites. While it isn't the biggest or the most important, it is one of the many factors. The reason for this is twofold. First, if the web page is taking ages to load, people won't be able to get the information they are looking for in a reasonable time. Because Google is in the business of getting people to information as quickly as possible, if people are stuck waiting second after second to get the...

Why Every Business Needs A VPS

What is a VPS? Virtual private server (VPS) technology has been around for a few years now and has proven itself as the best web and application hosting platform for small and medium-size businesses. While a VPS looks like a dedicated server to its user, it is in fact serving multiple clients at the same time, all of which have their own "private" server on the same hardware.   The advantages of VPS technology are many fold. First, a VPS carries all of the benefits of a dedicated server. This includes the ability for businesses to choose their own operating system and web server software. They can also have total control over what applications they run on the server and how they run them.   How reliable is VPS? As with a co-located private server, a VPS usually sits in a data center with multiple connections to the internet, generator back up power, and physical security to ensure that it, and the companies depending on it, stays available at all times. Most modern microprocessor chips are designed to support "virtualization" in their hardware, making them very good at keeping separate virtual machines apart from each other. While in a traditional shared...
