Estimating Your Web Hosting Requirements

September 21st, 2011 @ 10:03 am

Once you have decided to start your website you may be looking for a web host to help you get things in motion. While you definitely need to choose the right platform, there are some other things you also need to consider. When you have taken your pick from Windows hosting and Linux hosting, you must look for a host who provides you the right space and bandwidth for running your website. Only after taking care of these basic but essential needs, should you take care of the more advanced requirements such as scripting and database management.

Space is as important for web hosting, as it is in real life. The space provided by your web host is the hard disk space where you store data on the web server. Each web host provides you hard disk space, dependent on your package and of course the size and capacity of their server. This usually ranges from 500 MB and upwards to 10 GB.

The amount of space you need is obviously determined by your website. Websites are usually composed of text (in the form of HTML files), images (jpegs or gifs), flash animations and even videos. While a text rich site may not consume much space, flash animations and videos take up a lot of hard disk space. Even images, if they are high-resolution, can eat up a lot of space. So, you may want to calculate the amount of space your website will use.

A quick tip here: do not create an unnecessarily bulky website. You might think that a good website is all about big bright images, but it is not so. A good website for all users (even those who do not have broadband internet) is one which loads quickly. Try to keep your website size under 50 kb so that it takes no more than 4-5 seconds to load. Even if you have a large amount of space for web hosting, it does not mean that you have to use it all up!

Whether you use Windows hosting or Linux hosting, the key is to have a high amount of bandwidth at your disposal. Bandwidth is the amount of data your web hosting company allows you to transfer every month. It includes all uploads and downloads, no matter what protocol you use.

The bandwidth charges you pay are usually calculated after taking into account the total number of visitors to your site. So, if you have a 50kb website visited by 20000 people a month, your bandwidth usage is calculated as 20000 x 50 Kb, which works out to 1000 MB or about 1 GB. Therefore, if you have a high traffic website, you need a lot of bandwidth to ensure your site stays online.

When you launch your website, you may not have too many visitors so you do not require an unnecessarily huge bandwidth plan at the start. You only end up paying more!

For starters, 10-20 GB bandwidth should be more than enough to start Go ahead and take care of these basic hosting needs for laying the foundation of a successful website. Good luck!

How Can Clustered Hosting Help You?

May 4th, 2010 @ 6:01 pm

Whether you use Windows hosting or Linux hosting for your website, downtime is surely one of your mains concerns. If it’s not, you should wake up and smell the coffee immediately! People should be able to visit your website throughout the day, all the week and all year round. So, any gap in this expected availability of your website, means loss for your online business. Moreover when a person finds that your website is down, she is highly unlikely to try again, given that there are thousands of other sites which are selling the same thing as you. So, the losses keep mounting and this is why you may consider clustered hosting as a possible solution.

There are many web hosting companies which will offer you 99.9% uptime, but have you ever wondered why they cannot guarantee you 100%? This is because, servers can and will go down occasionally, and even the best web host cannot guarantee perpetual uptime. Hosts are well aware of this and so, they have devised clustered hosting as a possible alternative to single-server hosting.

The problem with traditional hosting is that all the elements of your website are managed by one server. So, it has to handle website control panels, email servers and also file transfer protocol. This is obviously quite taxing for the server, which has to handle not only your website but hundreds of others as well. Moreover, when there is traffic surge, or a huge increase in the number of people trying to access websites on a server, there is an even greater load on it. This is why you find that your website is unavailable sometimes.

Clustered hosting aims to put this issue to bed. The burden of running several websites is spread across several servers. It works in the same way as, the multiple engines on a commercial plane. If one fails the others do the job and complete the journey safely. So, even if your website runs a heavy database, it can work smoothly and not affect the working of other sites being managed by the same host. High end websites can often hamper the running of other websites, in conventional single server setups.

One more way in which clustered hosting helps is your website is by handling traffic spikes smoothly. When a large amount of available bandwidth is used up due to the number of simultaneous hits on your website, it can easily go down, but clustered hosting ensures that nothing like this happens. So, you can be sure that even when you are running a once in a lifetime sale, the website will be running smoothly!

Website maintenance also becomes less intrusive when a clustered hosting system is being used. This is because; it is no longer necessary to take the site offline for upgrades and rebooting. Your site remains online on a server, while the maintenance jobs are rolled out across other servers.

If you are looking for a new web host or perhaps are looking to switch web hosts, maybe you can go for a company which offers clustered hosting. This is a really smart hosting solution and surely worth a try!
