Hosting: Last frontier on technical support

When you’re setting up a website either for yourself or for a client, one of the things that one wants to have assured is… how good the technical support is gonna be? Because when you are in need to change something or make sure that your services are running alright, you want someone on the other side with a prompt response.

This might be one of the most decisive factors to go for one hosting provider or another. Quite frankly, this alone might be the only concern you should be having in the competitive world of hosting, in which features go as high as prices go low, but nobody reveals how good their technical support really is.

Support Tickets

Ever heard of them? This is the system they set in place to handle incidences. When you visit the support section of most web hosting sites, you will see a menu that lists a variety of categories in which you can file your complaint or inquiry. Many of these categories appear to represent your problem, but that is not always the case.

For example, if you are having a problem editing your website’s template or installing a third party plug-in onto your website. You may assume that it is a scripting issue. However, in all actuality, it is not a scripting issue that is directly related to your web hosting account. Your web hosting company may advise you to consult with a web design professional. Many people will see this as a lack of support even though that might be the best solution they can offer. Support ticket categories are perhaps the leading cause of confusion and frustration.

Terms and Conditions

A more accurate way to assess the boundaries of your web hosting provider support capabilities is to refer to its Terms of Service. Very often you will be able to find information about what the support staff is able to help you with. A good rule of thumb is – if the problem cannot be solved within your control panel, then the web hosting company probably cannot help you with it.

Phone Support

The easiest way to find out whether or not your problem can be solved by your web hosting company is to call them and find out in real time. Instead of waiting for an email response you may find it more time-efficient to speak with a customer service representative on the phone (or a Live Chat). This will eliminate confusion and frustration that results from information “lost in translation” via email.

HOSTGATOR TECHNICAL SUPPORT 

Not that I haven’t had a single problem with hostgator. I have had some, like the time when I needed a dedicated IP for one of my sites. So, you just go to their ticketing system and describe your problem there. After doing so, they take from a few minutes to a couple of hours to respond, but they usually do quite promptly and there are no major issues or delays.

I know from other webmasters that if the technical support is not good enough, a simple problem could turn into a nightmare.

What is Web Hosting, Goddamnit?!?

The question that puzzles humanity and leaves the scientific community without any answer, completely clueless. But today we are going to answer it for you, my dearest reader. Let me explain in detail as you diserve.

Web hosting is a service that allows you to publish a website on to the Internet. Simple, uh? A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for that to happen. So, it’s the people granting your website the possibility to be online 24/7. Do you follow? Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers, which are owned by those hosting service providers that “rent” you the space so you don’t have to set up the whole thing yourself.

When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.

So, in short, what do you need to publish a website and be available online for anyone to see 24/7? You need the “rented” space on one of the servers, and then a domain name (your URL, or the name you type in a browser to access the site, your “www.nameofyoursite.com” if you will).

I always suggest that you go for an easy hosting + domain name formula to save some money and do things right. On that article you will find the resources and easy steps to get the best hosting out there.

FEATURES OF A HOSTING SERVICE

Disk Space Quota

In ancient times of Internet history, there was a limited amount of space for you to store files for your website. This meant that you should check how much your hosting provider granted before jumping onboard and purchasing your hosting services.

Nowadays, most hosting providers offer unlimited disk space and you don’t have to worry much about this.

Bandwidth or Data Transfer

Same as the disk space quota, they limited the bandwidth they offered, so if your website was visited a lot, you should have paid more. Now, they have also unlimited bandwidth and you can have as many visitors as you want, thanks to the improvement in internet speed and bandwidth.

Email Accounts

I remember a time in which you could get like 5 e-mail accounts for a basic hosting service. Nowadays, you can pretty much get as many as you want. You will run out of account names to create before they say anything about your abuse of email accounts usage, so… yeah, don’t worry about this one either.

Emails can run over POP3 or IMAP, and you can forward them to other accounts and create aliases as well.

POP3 accounts are the traditional inboxes. You have space on the server to store your emails, and at the same time, you can use an email program to download your mail. Each login and password combination usually equates to one account.

 

 

Linux Hosting vs Windows Hosting

This is the eternal question: Batman or Robin? The Fantastic Four or The Avengers? Michael Paynter or Rick Price? (Not into australian singers, I take it?). I mean… when it comes to hosting, you might want to know if it is a linux based hostig or a windows based one. How can you tell the difference? Is the penguin better? What should I care? Well… let me splainn…

Linux-Versus-Windows-Platform

Web hosting service providers have these two hosting services based on the operating system that they are running: Linux hosting and Windows hosting. In general, Linux hosting refers to shared hosting, the most popular hosting service in the industry. In fact, most of the websites are now hosted using Linux hosting due to its affordable price and flexibility. Linux hosting is compatible with PHP and MySQL, which supports scripts such as WordPress, Zen Cart, and phpBB. Windows hosting, on the other hand, uses Bill Gates’ most known operating system and rely on Microsoft technologies such as ASP, .NET, Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL server (MSSQL).

My PC is running on Windows, does this mean that I have to go for a Windows based hosting service?

Of course not, there is nothing to do with the “client” side of the story. I mean, you can use any of those two types and they will work for Windows, Linux or any other operating system out there.

This only implies that when you are setting up your website in your rented hosting space, you will have to bear in mind that they use specific technology, so if you’re running scripts or any other software that needs to be running on certain framework (such ASP, MYSQL or whatever), then you’ll have to be careful what you’re getting yourself into.

But if you’re just going to set up a regular website, don’t worry much, because it will work just fine on whatever you’re going for.

On average, Linux hosting is more affordable than Windows hosting. How come?

Linux is a free open source system; therefore, web hosting service providers do not need to pay licensing fees for using Linux as their hosting servers’ operating system. Therefore, web hosting providers are able to offer lower prices for this type of web hosting service.

Conclusions: which hosting service should you go for?

Brief and concise: go for a Linux based one unless you’re gonna use specific technology that needs a Windows based one. And I get that if you’re going to do that, you’ll know what kind of technology you are using. If you don’t, again, go for the linux based one, and do not stress over this.

Here we recommend hostgator services as a rule of thumb: they are reliable and affordable, and they’ve got all that you need to get started with any WordPress or any other CMS plataform out there. We also offer these discount coupons if you’re interested. Remember that this is a service that we are using ourselves, that’s why we can be so sure about it.

Green Web Hosting: Be Respectful with the Environment

One of the questions that we ask ourselves when faced with the “Green Web Hosting” is… how are they “green”? I mean, do they like the colour? Are they fans of The Hulk? How are they actually contributing to save the environment and work towards a better and more ecologic approach when it comes to providing hosting services?

green-hosting

Web hosting companies consume a great amount of energy to power servers and other structures for providing unrestricted services. Other related facilities such as cooling controls and enhanced security setups also require a lot of electricity. Such a great amount of resources usage might have a negative impact on the environment. Green web hosting, as the name suggests, grants certain actions such as renewable energy that help to reduce the impact on our beloved planet Earth.

Renewable energy is generated through natural resources. It is naturally ‘re-usable’. Hydroelectricity and wind power are often the most common natural resources. In North America, electricity is mostly generated by renewable energy. In daily operations, a handful web hosting firms start taking proactive solutions such as using more efficient server hardware to reduce the electricity usage. All of these practices become very common in North American web hosting industry.

Companies as Hostgator, one of the largest and most reliable provider of hosting services, has the “Green” label endorsing their activities. They are using wind power to energize their servers, HostGator has purchased certified Renewable Energy Credits representing 130% of the electricity used to both power and coolevery last one of their shared and reseller servers!

This might be just a litte detail for you when deciding on what hosting provider you should go for, but in this highly competitive world, this might also be the difference between a very good hosting provider and a great one. So, if you’re still deciding… what about caring about the planet aside from getting the best prices? 😉
