If you, or your application/enterprise, have outgrown the capabilities of a shared hosting environment, you might be well suited for HDVPS unmanaged Linux VPS Hosting, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HostDime.com. By decreasing our product overhead from reducing the need for a team to fully manage your server 24/7, we are able to offer a top-tier product as low as $10.00/month.
Choosing the best hosting platform for your website(s) can be very challenging and confusing. In order not to be mislead, you will first need to outline the future plan of your website(s) for the upcoming year. If you are planning on creating a website(s) that will grow in the future (or you plan on running a huge database with heavy web traffic), it would be wise to choose a Web Host that contains the four different hosting services in case you need to upgrade your processing power, memory capacity, disk storage or security features.
The four types of hosting platforms consist of Shared Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS Hosting Solutions and Dedicated Server Solutions. We will analyze each one of these hosting services and clarify which platform is compatible with your needs.
Web Traffic is one of the strongest indication of how successful your online business is running. Without visitors, your company has no one to sell products or services to! Companies spend thousands of dollars paying for advertising agencies, the ‘middle-man’, to cover their marketing strategies. However, today’s digital world has completely shifted the responsibilities of promoting to the business owners, and excluded the entire middle process.
Will it cost you more money?
Choosing your marketing strategy online is one of the most vital elements in exposing your brand, product or even service to your target market. In fact, according to Nielsen’s, “member communities” are now used by more than 67 percent of the global online population.
In today’s booming social network environment, it is necessary for businesses to be more resourceful with their time, and even more effective with what and whom they connect with. There are two specific types of “social networkers” online, the posters and the seekers. It is mandatory for your business, the poster, to post information, resources, tips and offers on a daily basis for your customers, the seekers.
Sounds pretty simple, right?

A few quick facts about local search and advertising:
A recent report by comScore for Yellow Pages Association shows that the number of mobile subscribers accessing business directories on a mobile phone increased 14 percent year-over-year to 17.3 million users in March 2010.
It is also estimated that 95% of Google’s Revenue comes from it’s Google AdWords service. That means in Q3 of 2010 advertisers spent roughly $3 billion on paid advertising through Google and it’s affiliated sites.
On Sunday, the HostDime.com / HostingCure team ran in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This race was important to us running for family members and also contributing to a greater good for our community. We are planning a few more charity 5k’s for the next few months.

#102 – Alex Font – 25:01
#226 – Michael Kahn – 27:38
#227 – Greg Prepetit – 27:39
#347 – Alex Vargas – 29:07
#1104 – Hector Santos – 54:54
HostDime today launched HostingCure, a first-of-its-kind initiative for the web hosting industry to raise money for breast cancer research. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, and more than 200,000 women are diagnosed with the disease each year alone in the United States.
Through HostingCure, any individual or web hosting company can donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which is the only breast cancer organization to receive an “A+” from the American Institute of Philanthropy and the only cancer organization to currently hold the same ranking.
Web hosting companies who contribute to the effort financially with a donation of $500 or more will also be recognized publicly. HostDime has already donated $600 and will be initiating more efforts to raise money. All participating web hosts will be honored on the HostingCure website at http://hostingcure.com/participating-hosts.

We’ve been testing Enkompass since its first trial version and we’ve recently began testing on our new Windows VPS packages. The idea was to test Enkompass as a distributed system at a much lower cost than running on a dedicated server cluster. We’ll try and release some benchmarks in the future but for now we wanted to show how to setup a cost effective virtualized Enkompass cluster.
In our test environment we used three of our HostDime Xen based WVPS.2 packages. One server is running active directory which handles DNS and users , another is running IIS and the Enkompass control panel storing all domain content. Our last server is running MSSQL, MYSQL and the mail server, Mail Enable.
This year the HostDime Cares team will be participating in our 2nd annual Susan G Komen 2010 Central Florida Race for the Cure 5k on Sunday, October 17, 2010. At HostDime we are always working to better our communities and to help make a differences in peoples lives. As you…
