99.99%. It’s something that we’ve come to expect from our hosting providers, yet when it comes to our online reputation, we’ve somehow settled for a lot less.

Yet, just like the importance of 100% uptime for our web sites, so too our online reputations should be considered as something that requires our 100% attention–okay, perhaps 99.99%–at all times.

Have you ever had a flash of brilliance and stopped what you were doing, ran to your computer and registered a domain name? Yes? Then you’re on the right blog! As relevant, cool and easy to spell domain names become scarce, businesses and individuals have become crafty in getting domain names to suit their needs. Many times, out of desperation a company is forced to get its fully incorporated 84 character business name as a domain name. You don’t want that business to be you, so you do everything you can to be prepared.  But what about that brilliant idea? Many in the internet and web hosting industry have been “collecting” domain names for years. Unlike tales of cybersquatting and typo squatting, many folks are just private collectors, gathering domain names like wildflowers in the summertime.

Off Page Optimization Part 3 - Obtaining Links

In our previous post in this Surpass series, we discussed how to structure your site to be visible by the search engines for a particular term. Off page optimization is similar to this, but instead of making things visible, we are proving to search engines that our content is useful. This allows our website to rank a little higher each day that we work on this. You see, to the search engines, a link to a page is a vote up for its content which increases the authority of the site and the particular page it is linking to.

Spotlight: HostDime India

Geography may be a subject that some students may find tedious, but when it comes to web hosting, it can prove to be rather fundamental. HostDime certainly seems to be aware of this fact. After opening its U.S. office in 2001, the web hosting company immediately began cornering the globe with a bevy of international locations. One of those particular locations is HostDime India.

Being the company’s second venture into Asia, HostDime India offers the same remarkable standards and conveniences that customers have come to expect from any HostDime location. Launched in 2009, it is actually the latest in seven of HostDime’s esteemed international branches. As the Director of Global Operations, Hector S. said that one of the things that sets the India location apart from other competitors in Asia is that HostDime puts more of an emphasis on customer support, customer service and the intangibles.
