Ecommerce Hosting & Discussion / Hosting For Startup eCommerce Website
« on: October 16, 2014, 05:17:08 PM »
I have a concept of an eCommerce website in mind. I know that there are many things involved when it comes to setting up and managing an eCommerce website like shopping cart software, payment gateways, customer database etc. I want to know if a shared hosting package is sufficient for a startup eCommerce website? Or do I need a higher package like VPS or dedicated hosting?

General Discussion / The best solution for hosting an image website
« on: October 13, 2014, 11:54:51 AM »
Hello, One of my friends is trying to create a new image based website. Just like any other startup, he is not expecting a lot of traffic in the beginning. However, considering the traffic growth in the future, he is in lookout for a powerful web hosting platform. Here are the options he has thought of :

1) Get a dedicated server and store everything there.

2) Use Amazon services. This looks expensive! Isn't it?

3) Enable the users to connect their cloud storage account like Google Drive and store the images in there. But I think this might cause speed problems. Is it ok with Google? Is that Legal?

4) Utilize an online service like Bitcasa (Our own account). Is it legal and allowed? Will it cause speed problems?

Please note that my friend is trying his best to get an affordable web hosting solution. He also does not want to sacrifice on the website performance! What is the best option for him?

Web Hosting / Does green hosting really matter?
« on: July 30, 2014, 05:03:04 PM »
Recently I have come across a lot of 'green hosting' services.

I would like to know if it really matters! I am a nature friendly person myself but frankly, I think that the whole green hosting concept is a marketing strategy. A new way for the web hosting companies to generate sales.

I'll be glad to know about everyone's views on the green hosting concept.

General Discussion / Formula for calculating bandwidth
« on: June 25, 2014, 10:59:34 AM »
One of the biggest concerns that website owners have while selecting a web hosting package is figuring out how much bandwidth they’ll need.

In case you sign up for a package with too less bandwidth, either you might be hit by overage fees or the functioning of your website might get affected. If the bandwidth offered is more than your requirement, then you are unnecessarily paying for the bandwidth that you don't actually need. So how do you know the exact amount of bandwidth required?

Have a look at this formula:

This is a simple multiplication formula that comprises of the website size, number of web pages and number of visitors your expect for your website in a day. With these numbers you will be able to derive the monthly bandwidth required for your website.

For example : You have 4 pages on your site and your page size is around 40KB. Suppose you expect about 60 visitors a day with each visitor viewing each page; the bandwidth of your website per day should be:

40KB x 60 visitors x 4 pages=9600 KB

Hope this works for you.....

I would like to know everyone's feedback on this...

When I established my website, I wanted the best web hosting for it. Going by the reviews, I narrowed down my search to GoDaddy and HostGator as they were seen everywhere on the web. Price was never an important criteria for me so I opted for a web hosting package with GoDaddy. It's been a long time my website is hosted with GoDaddy but I am not completely satisfied because my website issues were solved but they were not solved in time. Considering the nature of website a slight delay in solving of any issue directly means loss of business for me. I have realized that its time for me to change the hosting provider.

Here is what I am looking for: 20gb space, 100gb bandwidth, 10 email address, 1 ftp account along with timely customer support.

I can no longer compromise with my website. I have learnt the lesson in a hard way, that flashy advertisement and loads of offers do not make up for the best hosting experience and perfect customer support.

I have approached many web hosting companies for changing my web hosting package. I have considered MilesWeb as well, I hope you can suggest me with a suitable hosting package!
