Hosting

Does your website goes down sometimes? Did you notice your website database corrupted? Have you noticed SQL injection attacks on your website? Have you seen your website defaced by any hacker where all your website reflects, a message that ‘you are hacked’, or ‘patch your site admin’ etc. Its a routine matter, seen by many webmasters. I can tell you, I have experienced it all and still see this often. Sometimes website front page is replaced by hacker. Sometimes database gets corrupted. Sometimes website goes down. Sometimes whole root directory disappears. Hosting provider can suspend your hosting account because of any hacker who gained access to your hosting account to spread malware. Its horrible.

Doesn’t matter how much security you may apply, somehow there may be still chances that your website will be hacked, defaced or your mySQL database will be corrupted. In that case if you request web hosting backups, they fail to guarantee the latest full backup. Sometimes backup will be incomplete. Sometimes backup will be outdated.

So here comes the need for a regular, automated full website FTP and mySQL database backup. How do you take website and mySQL backups? Manually? Forget it. We recommend BackupSF software that can take automated full website FTP and database backups for you. Good news is, we are giving away 10 license keys for BackupSF.

A successful blog presents some unique challenges. Once your site has hit the big time, just keeping it going can be a full-time job. When the day comes that your blog gets hundreds of thousands of page views all at once, you want to be ready. The main issue here is the web hosting. I have few colleagues who have been trying out several web hosts. The fact is, almost every web host has got some issue. I remember I accidentally deleted a blog and requested backup from my web host but they were unable to restore it. They had the option to restore blog and they provided the backup option – as they said – but I simply received the emails that there was no backup to restore even when I tried really old backups as well. Every business has got policies. You can not challenge the big guys who run the web hosting business. You just can not. You have to simply bear what comes in your way or you can select to choose the best who knows this business.

For a popular wordpress powered blog you need PHP virtual private server or dedicated private server. Dreamhost dedicated server and virtual private server are great choices for growing blogs. We also use Dreamhost virtual private server hosting and we have published this website host review earlier. Dreamhost hosting is reliable. Dreamhost VPS has been powerful virtual private server for our wordpress blogs. Private web server allows you to expand resources as your blog demands. Private server hosting is not cheap so it should be managed by you at regular basis according to your website/blog needs otherwise you will have to pay extra bucks every month that your website never used. Dreamhost shared server is also powerful enough to bear a blog’s load. When you need performance and there comes a phase when your blog attracts hundreds of users at the same time, then you need to shift towards VPS hosting or PS hosting where you can scale resources as you need. Dreamhost offered a slider to increase or decrease resources of PS as you need them which also affected at monthly costs. In Dreamhost Panel there was no indication or alert of exact resources blog uses at that specific time except for a graph. Then Dreamhost changed their system and things became a bit dodgy. We had to always keep slider a little more than the graph measurements. On asking they said that some portion of resources (swap) is needed by the system that is why you need to keep it a little bit higher than the graph details. Now they have modified the system and its good to find improvement in how we can manage our PS resources.

Recently Dreamhost made some changes in their PS resources. The customers who have Virtual Private Server resources can adjust the slider from their PS resources section to cop with heavy site usage issues. Previously they had the same stuff but with an indication of burstable resources. I mean if you slide your resources to any point, It would indicate that you have ‘this much’ extra burstable resources in case your site needs it. Now this feature is gone permanently. On asking their support they told that burstable resources are still there, its just they eliminated that indication so that users may not get confused. Previously my PS resources were showing me huge consumption and I had adjusted the slider a little higher. I noticed that the graph in PS resources section dropped at considerable amount. On asking the support they told me that they have adjusted their servers to handle memory usage in an even better way.
