Cloud Hosting / Re: What are the security benefits of cloud hosting?
« on: April 22, 2021, 06:08:24 PM »
Cloud-based systems have emerged as a viable platform to address the security issues of both media and entertainment businesses across the globe. Of course, the boom in the sector has paved the way for a plethora of opportunities for the entertainment industry, but, on the flip side, the amounts of risk involved have also increased tremendously.

Data Encryption

Robust data encryptions within cloud-based security systems have substantially reduced the possibilities of data breaches; these solutions offer a layered approach that consists of security intelligence, key management, and secure access controls. Cloud-based systems give the required freedom to companies to choose their users who will be accessing the data that has been outsourced to the cloud. This way, any attempts to tamper with personal or professional data can be thwarted.

Avoid DDoS Attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can result in hefty losses for entertainment companies. Hackers target the website by directing traffic from several sources to the end website, and, as a result, the system gets overwhelmed. These DDoS attacks may tarnish the image of the company, as clients begin to lose trust.

Regulatory Compliance

Cloud computing security solutions usually provide reliable SOC1 and SOC2 certifications to entertainment businesses. These certifications ensure periodic scrutiny of data and all types of possible glitches. Cloud-based solutions manage the requisite infrastructure for regulatory compliance and the protection of data. Detailed AWS reports about the management of security controls ensure all organizations focus on their business operations, without worrying about compliance requirements.

Secure Storage

Traditional storage solutions don’t provide any protection against possible disasters that have the potential to erase required data from devices. Cloud computing allows the users to store their data safely, thereby negating any mishaps that may affect the equipment.

Patch Management

The vulnerabilities of a website are often exploited by hackers to breach the security system of a company. Cloud service providers keep their sites up to date; further on, they ensure that no vulnerabilities exist. Moreover, cloud solutions offer real-time assistance to clients by providing companies with the option to scale cloud solutions during high traffic situations. This flexibility allows companies to reduce their cost of services substantially.

According to my opinion, the biggest E-commerce Challenge is Cyber & Data Security.

When it comes to eCommerce, one of the biggest challenges faced is security breaches. There is a lot of information/data that is involved while dealing with eCommerce and a technical issue with data can cause severe damage to the retailer’s daily operations as well as brand image.

Solution: Be vigilant and always back up your data. Post that, you can install security plugins onto your website to prevent it from getting hacked. There are several plugins out there, pick one that works best for your eCommerce website.

General Discussion / Re: Difference between Malware and Virus
« on: March 30, 2021, 05:24:24 PM »
Malware is a short term coined for Malicious Software, the google definition of which is “software which is specifically designed to disrupt, damage, or gain authorized access to a computer system”.

Malware is capable of stealing, encrypting, or deleting sensitive data on computers, they can also be used to monitor your activities, without your permission.

Malware is a very broad term, it includes other sub-types like-Virus, Trojan, Worm, Spyware, and the latest all ransomware. All of these are a type of malware that affect the system in various ways.

A virus is a specific type of malware that can affect the system. It may be a piece of code in software that performs unwanted activities and can spread itself. Virus and worms are kinds of similar, as per my understanding, the virus is something that doesn’t propagate on networks but a worm does propagate on the network and affects as many systems as it can.

Web Hosting / Re: How do I reduce CPU usage in cPanel?
« on: March 17, 2021, 05:36:03 PM »
High CPU usage is a very common issue when it comes to shared hosting.

To reduce cPanel CPU Usage is might be a difficult task, especially if you are working with third-party web applications like forums, blog systems, or content management systems as you might not be having detailed information about the functioning of these systems.

However, there are other things that can be implemented for reducing CPU usage:

• Upgrade all the third party web applications to the latest version available (including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and any other content management system or blog systems, galleries, forums, or any other scripts that are installed on your account)

• Check if there are any add-ons or plugins used on your web applications, and make sure that they are upgraded to the latest versions as well

• Perform a general check and make sure that any of the unused plugins, add-ons, or web applications are removed

• Any of the web applications that allow the ‘caching’ feature, should have this feature enabled or activated

• In case you have developed your own scripts, try reducing the number of MySQL, MSSQL, Postgre SQL queries for optimizing your scripts so that they need less processing time

• Also, it is important to check your server for any malicious scripts or spam.

Domain Names / Re: Why are some domains more expensive than others?
« on: March 09, 2021, 05:16:55 PM »
Not all but quite a few are expensive. It depends on the name, brand, popularity. If you would want to purchase a domain name that someone would have already purchased then it depends on how much that person is willing to sell for. If you go in for a random domain name then that would not be expensive at all.

Some domain names are considered “premium” for a number of reasons:

Length - shorter domain names are much easier to remember.

Keywords - keyword domains are better for SEO and human readability.

Brandability - domains that are a perfect match for a certain brand or industry niche.

Web Hosting / Re: Comparing DirectAdmin and CPanel
« on: February 03, 2021, 02:37:38 PM »
DirectAdmin and cPanel are very similar, yet very different.

DirectAdmin is a graphical web-based web hosting control panel designed to form the administration of websites easier.

cPanel is a control dashboard that helps you manage your web hosting server using a web-based interface.

Both panels offer a clean, organized, modern GUI. Both are quite modern and facilitate server and domain management via a friendly, easy-to-use interface.

But DirectAdmin's interface seems to be a bit easier with regards to the number of ports and access levels.

cPanel is structured with two different interfaces operating on different ports, each serving different users with different privileges.
cPanel lacks the choice to manage everything in one interface.

At first glance, DirectAdmin's File Manager doesn't appear to have as many options as cPanel's, but many of these features become accessible via tooltips that appear once you are close to select a file or directory that you got to make changes to. So, don't let the simplicity of the display fool you because the features are tucked away nicely and intuitively displayed once you need them.


Cost should be considered along with side resources. Even before Chanel's recent price hikes, DirectAdmin was hardly an underdog. With the changes within the cPanel license costs, DirectAdmin is in an exceedingly prime position to take the lead.

several other factors why DirectAdmin won this comparison are :

1. DirectAdmin is one of the simplest control panels and functions as a light-weight option.

2. Easily build and control many web sites.

3. DirectAdmin features a user-friendly admin area.

4. DirectAdmin allows the acquisition of a Lifetime License that gives unlimited domain support, periodic control panel updates, and more.

5. It has practically had every feature you would like to set your website on a shared website hosting.


Before you decide on a panel, you want to know which option is best for your hosting needs. I hope all the above overviews assist you when checking out web panels to satisfy your personal or professional website management needs.

Domain Names / Re: What to do, if domain I want is already registered?
« on: October 14, 2019, 07:32:13 PM »
Hey Ritu,
I know, finding a perfect domain name gets tough at times. In your case, you can do the following things :

1) Think of different domain idea: It is always better to get a new domain name, rather than fighting for the already established name. The reason is, you will first have to put in the efforts to make people (who already knew the existing domain name) forget about it, which is not 100% possible. And then create your identity.

2) Buy a domain from the current owner :
Still, if you desperately need the same domain name, then you can approach to its current owner and ask him to sell you. This can be a costly method.

3) Wait for it to expire :
In such a case, you need to be very patient and wait for a domain to expire. So that before renewing you can buy it.

The choice is always yours.
