If you still haven’t had the chance to meet Alex, the HostDime mascot, it is about time for us to introduce him.

When our customers open a ticket with us, either by phone or live-chat, they have a hard time to visually picture our HostDime support team.

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?
