Web Hosting Special
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.

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.
I had to ask DreamHost support about a problem today and after when I generated a ticket, I spotted a magic button ‘Live Chat’ above at the panel. I was literally overjoyed. This is the feature which I used to miss a lot in Control Panel. There are many Hosts out there which provide Live Chat facility even when you are not their customer (This does not mean that they are good though). I withdrew the ticket and just talked with DreamHost support live and I am really happy. I have observed that most of the users, when they get hosting account, they also check that whether there is a Live chat facility or not so that they can get back to support as soon as some problem occurs. It makes users feel secure, that Support is always there.

This question arises in your mind when you face a conflict in case when you are at shared server environment but sometimes you feel that traffic is getting higher and website sometimes goes less responsive. You think that it is not a perfect time just yet, to move. Let the traffic be more and then you will move to ‘Private Server’. Some people even wait for Webhost to warn them about their heavy usage and need to upgrade. Read on to know some interesting facts which will help you to decide.
If you are a Dreamhost Webhost user and at shared server environment then it might be confusing for you to decide when you should move to Dreamhost PS. You need to know the particular indications by your website or blog when you should realize that it is time. Even then you can see if you can do anything with your files, scripts and data to minimize some resources and stay at shared server environment. Its worth it to save every single buck while you can. In my opinion when there is no other way then you should move to Private Server, doesn’t matter at what server you currently are. You can panic fairly earlier and decide to move to Private Server while you could save some money yet. Private Server costs a bit more. It has benefits, but you should know your need. Let me point out indications which show need to move to Private Server and how to check that you can do anything to stay put just yet or there is no other way but to upgrade your hosting account.
