Do you think you have what it takes to become a web hosting reseller and make some quick income? Well the process might be easier than you think thanks to Web Host Manager Complete Solution (WHMCS). With HostDime, you get a free copy with your reseller, VPS or dedicated hosting package. WHMCS is a client management, billing, and support software portal for online web hosts. It allows clients to sign up for various packages and register unlimited domains without any work on your part. Once you approve a new signup in cPanel, WHMCS will instantly supply those new accounts on your server and you can view each client in-depth.
International web hosting provider HostDime.com, Inc. has provided Full Sail University’s Internet Marketing degree program students with free web hosting. Unlike many of the free web hosting services offered today, students will be given a fully functioning hosting account that is completely ad free. The cPanel enabled hosting plans will also be fully managed by HostDime’s industry leading support team.
The hosting industry is as popular as ever and is growing each day with new, independent start-ups looking to be the next big web hosting provider. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs do not have the start-up capital to purchase loads of dedicated servers to re-purpose as shared servers or reseller machines. In most cases, businesses start out on a shared reseller platform and scale up the tiers of hosting as their business grows or as their clients’ needs increase.
Surpass Hosting’s recent migration from Fantastico to Softaculous has given Surpass Hosting users an opportunity to try out new scripts. Here are the top scripts according to Softaculous users:
Ah, passwords, the keys to modern living. It seems you can’t go anywhere or do anything these days without a password. You workstation needs a password, your gym needs a password, even your trusty buddy the cell phone may need a password. With so many passwords it’s tempting to make life easy and just have one master key, or password to make life simple. While this may be easy, it’s definitely not secure and you risk putting in danger every access point where you use that “master key.”
It brings to mind the old castle housekeeper with gigantic ring of keys to every room in the castle. What a burdensome load to carry. Wouldn’t a master key be better? Yes it would, but one stolen key and the whole castle is breached.
Whether you’re running a personal blog or reselling web hosting it’s important to make sure your business is running at optimum performance. Here’s a list of things to check once a month to make sure you, and your business are running on all cylinders.
Don’t you love it when you find that little thing that makes your life easier? At HostDime we like to save time using little tips and tricks to keep our life easy:
1. Accidentally close the wrong tab? Hit Ctrl+Shift+T and the tab will re-open if you are using Firefox, Chrome or IE. It’s Cmd+Shift+T for Mac users.
2. On a PC? The Windows key+ L will put your computer to sleep immediately.
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.
Shared hosting is a great option for businesses looking to host their own website. It’s cost effective and you get the customer service and tools you need to be successful. At Surpass Hosting we do our best to keep your site safe and secure from outside intruders, including scam artists, hackers and entities try to spam yourself and others. There also a list of things that you as the consumer can do to assist us in keeping your environment safe.
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.
