Importance of Good Hosting Services

While you certainly have a variety of choices to go with when it comes to website hosting, it’s important to remember that no two hosts are going to be the same. It’s also important to realize that you get what you pay for, and saving money may not be the best reason for moving forward with any number of web hosting sites. There are several factors that you should look into, and finding the right web host for your site is anything but a quick process. It’s okay to take the time to search, and finding the perfect host for your specific needs will pay off big, even if it delays your site launch for some time. Take these factors into consideration before making your choice for web hosting.

Virtual Vs Dedicated Server

First of all, if you’re an e-commerce retailer that’s using Magento, then you should officially consider a virtual server out of the question. When it comes to web hosting, the Magento platform is extremely taxing on a server, and if you don’t have enough memory and processing power, you’re going to find that your site will be extremely slow and often non-responsive. A dedicated server is required for larger sites with an abundant amount of content.

Time For More Space

iCloud's offer of 5 GB's of free storage to all comers has generated a stampede for storage mongers who are desperate to find more memory real estate in Cyberspace. This brings file hoarders to a cross-roads with only three viable choices: Delete existing files and create space for new files, purchase an external drive or use cloud storage services to lighten your internal hard drive's load. As inviting as the free 5 GB storage is, the digital pack-rats among us are finding the free storage too limited for their needs. The problem is that many of  the "file-o-philes" among us would rather undergo a root canal than push that delete button.

Before we continue, it should be explained that Apple does not count many types of purchased files such as downloaded music, movies, TV shows and apps as part of the free 5GB storage. Consider those as bonus free storage. With that said, upgrades are available at reasonable rates. Currently, the additional cost break down is like this:

Which Cloud Do You Prefer?

In the days before what is now known as cloud, there were free & paid sites that offered options for storing your files online. Sites like MediaFire were once the popular resource that people went to to help them share large files online. While MediaFire has its limitations, it was at one point one of the few sites out there that allowed you to share literally any file. Even though download speeds in free versions were less than optimal, it worked. However, with the recently release of cloud sites like Dropbox, SugarSync, and SkyDrive, the ease of hosting your files online has gotten much more efficient.

But are the new technologies that cloud has to offer really worth it? The great thing about the cloud storage versus sites like MediaFire is that, Dropbox, SugarSync, and SkyDrive were all built with the consumer of the product in mind. While this doesn’t pay off with their free versions, they get the attention when it comes to those who need to upload, download, or edit files on the fly from nearly any online resource. The only time a user would actually need to pay for these services was if they needed something larger for file storage, since MediaFire has an upload limit of 50GB. Additionally, the cloud services don’t have limitations on who can access them or even download speeds. MediaFire free links often expire after a certain amount of time, and download speeds are severely limited in free versions.

Added Security for Your Dropbox

Dropbox is a means that enables users to sync files in between computer systems and gadgets. For portable devices, Dropbox provides cloud-based accessibility so you can carry your information just about anywhere with an Internet connection. Dropbox has been criticized a couple of times before for their inability to protect user’s data. But now it appears to be they are eventually enhancing their security. The announcement arrives just after Dropbox found that account details stolen from other websites were used to get access to a number of Dropbox accounts. Last year, the cloud-based service stated it would take actions to strengthen user’s security by introducing “two-factor authentication,” which involves two proofs of identification when signing in. End users have formerly requested this functionality in Dropbox forums last year.

Dropbox has encountered about three major cases of security issues in the past year, with the most recent case of login username and passwords getting stolen from other sites and accounts accessed. Therefore, in reaction to the most recent incident, Dropbox assured the users that it would bring “two-factor authentication.” That implies you require two proofs of identification, such as your user security password and a code sent to your cellphone, to gain accessibility to your account. The security code is sent to phones via text message, or generated by making use of a mobile app. Dropbox first revealed the new feature to its users in forums, asking them to report and submit their experiences so far. The process is optional and depends upon the user but advised by Dropbox, adds an extra layer of security to user accounts by requesting users to submit a six-digit security code in addition to their security passwords whenever they sign in to their account, phone or tablet or link a new computer.

Useful Tips To Avoid Cloud Data Hacks

Whether you like it or not, your information is moving online. Through cloud technology, regardless of the software that people use, more and more data, both sensitive and informal, is making its way to clouds. No matter how you twist it, the Cloud is simply a way of accessing your stored data online wherever you may have an internet connection. This online storage puts you and your data at risk, which could leave you with a world of hurt if someone is able to access your information. Like all other activities we do online, there are ways to protect your cloud data from hacking, including some of these tips.

Keep Your Data Local as Well as Online

One of the biggest problems that people face is their data simply being erased from the Cloud that they keep their information on. Generally, most people are smart enough to make their clouds only hold informal data such as reports in write-ups. Either way, make sure that you keep backup of your data locally on another computer. Clouds, just like any other computer technology, run the risk of giving you problems, and if the data is lost and you haven’t backed things up, you’re going to regret it.
