I need to provide an 8gb file download (split into 1gb parts) that will be downloaded by 80+ people worldwide, simultaneously. I'm talking for example, they will be each downloading at 1.2megabytes per second each (this is the average speed of their home connections), simultaneously.
What are the specs or things I should be looking out for in a website hosting provider?
One service I'm looking at is advertised as 0.5Mbps in bandwidth and 100Mbps in transit, for Ã‚Â£40 a month. The service I'm looking at is sensical.net's colo business service (http://www.sensical.net/). What does this mean and is it fast enough? What is the difference between these two figures - 0.5Mbps bandwidth and 100Mbps transit?
I'm planning to host about 10 websites, most of them will be developed on Dotnetnuke (latest version). The most important issue is the speed of the web sites. The pages need to be opened fast. The target audience is located in Istanbul/Turkey, therefore I think the EU-based companies will be better for my requirements.
I'm in the process of switching my host provider and Im leaning towards Surpass Hosting.
I've already contacted them for a few question and their support seems expectational as they respond my tickets thoroughly in less then 20 minutes.
Just a few questions to those that do use surpass or have used them. How fast are their servers for PHP like Wordpress and Invision Power Board and are are your sites stable (always fast, or are they slow at times and then fast) with them.
I have a VPS account now and I host a setup.exe file on my site, but about 10% of all downloads are incomplete and result in a corrupt setup file. I am guessing that maybe it's because too many people are trying to download the file at the same time? Whatever the reason, I need more reliable file hosting. Can anyone suggest a place to host just my files, which will provide speedy, reliable downloads? I'll still keep the VPS for my site, but need to put the files elsewhere. I don't want any free, ad supported sites, or ones that require the user to visit another site first.
Anyone have any recommendations with a good country to host our web sites which is outside of USA/Canada? We have tried Signapore and Hong Kong and both have had a lot of problems when we get spikes in traffic...
If you need a hosting provider, reliable with logical prices and fantastic support then you should consider SoftSysHosting.com
I'm developing web sites since 1995 and through all these years I have changed many hosting companies always looking the best for my clients. BUT what are the basic 2 critical factors for a website?
1) Reliability -stability - fast loading
2) Excellent support staff.
SoftSystHosting.com has also logical prices for Windows2008 hosting needs.
Whenever I needed to open a new ticket during the process of domain transfer I always was getting a reply in minutes. Also the support staff is very gentle, experienced and always looking for to satisfy your needs. You need Full Trust for your domain? No problem. Just open a ticket and in 5 minutes you'll have it.
One main reason I left from one of my previous hosting provider was Full Trust. They offered only Medium Trust.
I left also another hosting provider since support system was horrible. I opened a ticket and I wasn't sure when it will be answered. In cases of troubles a complete absense of support may ruin your business. I usally do changes at night or weekend when my clients do not work. What happen if something goes wrong and there is no one at the other side of support to help you? I have faced such situations that the 24x7 support was 8x5.
So if you want to be free from anxiety and have reliable hosting with a fanatical support team, then I suggest you to join SoftSysHosting.com
I'm currently looking for another affiliate network other then motive interactive. I'm trying to find more advertisements for other areas in the world. I love motive interactive so far but it's focus is mainly on US. I have a few ads that I'm using for AUS, UK and Canada but what about the rest of the world.
We are a web-based Yacht Charter company, with offices scattered around the world: www.boatbookings.com
Currently, both our web site and our back-office business management system are hosted on a single server in the UK, with an automatic fail-over to a server in Dallas, TX, USA.
The problem we are having is that our sales office in Singapore is having really slow response times and this is very frustrating for them.
Using an application called "JustPing" we see that response times From Singapore are much slower than other parts of the world. (the cities closer to London are fastest, the ones further away are slowest) JustPing Results
Is there anyway to improve this or is hosting our applications on multiple servers the only way to improve performance. What's the best cost-effective method of multiple server hosting?
(Incidentally, if I JutPing Google, response times are fantastic worldwide, but we know they're hosted on many, very large servers)
I'm doing a bit of research JFMI and I was wondeering if anyone had an idea as to what is the total number of domains that are hosted in the world. If the total number of domains registered is now 183 million +, what percentage of those domains are actually hosted?.
i have moved my hosting to a new provider and i was wondering what is the quickest way to upload my 500MB files to the new server? Is there anyway i can speed this up like have a dedicated uplink port to my server, or via VPN or something, cos at the moment i have an upload speed of around 10KB/s,
Is there a webhost fast enough for providing large files (2.5GB +, going up to 10GB + larger) on my website to users worldwide?
At the moment my website is hosted in the UK and it seems to deliver download speeds of around 650kbps if only one person is downloading at a time. I have tried other web hosts, and their download speeds are never advertised, but have turned out to be even less in practise (e.g. 150kbps)
As I'm hosting large files (e.g. 1GB - 2.5GB - 8.5GB or more) on my website, I need something with unlimited speed. i.e. so that the download speed is limited only by the end user's connection.
Is there anything like this out there? I realise the files are very large in size, but I'd rather keep the process electronic than mail out hundreds of DVDs all the time.
I have recently closed my Linux Developer account with fasthosts due to intermittant latency problems, and rubbish support query turn around, always over 48hours if replied to at all (most of my support queries were never answered unless I actually phoned in about them!)
So is mine an isolated incident or are others out there having the same problem?
I run lighttpd as my webserver, and 5.2.1 worked perfectly. I upgraded to 5.2.4 but when I checked my version, it said "cli". I ran the exact same configure command that I did with 5.2.1, but for some reason it says "cli". I then just ran this config:
The server I have running has LAMP and some other related services running. It's on a 100Mbit shared port. Whenever the server has been running for 30-90mins, the pings start to become very high (+2000ms). Problem exists with ftp, ssh, http etc, and restarting named, httpd, mysqld doesn't affect anything. The only thing that gets the pings back down and the speeds up again is to reboot the system, which takes about a minute. The MRTG graphs show that there isn't any significant traffic which cause the pings go down, in fact, the traffic goes close to 0 when the pings start sky rocketing. CPU load is < 0.1 and memory usage low as well.
