Dedicated Hosting Pros

1) You do not share the server resources or access with anyone. The web hosting provider issues and maintains a hardware box, and you are the only one with access to it. This means the maximum possible CPU and RAM of all “physical” web hosting options.

2) Does not require maintenance of the network, including uptime monitoring, very basic DDoS protection and general network security.

3) Does not require maintenance of the server hardware.

Dedicated Hosting Cons

1) Requires maintenance of everything software-related. Basically, you are being provided with just hardware, and installing and maintaining everything else – the operating system, the web, ftp and mail servers, database and other applications is up to you.

2) The overall cost of rental might exceed the cost of buying the hardware.

3) Hardware options are typically limited, you usually have options to add extra RAM and disk space, but your choice is rather limited in comparison to assembling a server yourself.

VPS Hosting Pros

1) The cheapest of all web hosting options that allow full root access and provide an option to install and use any own server-side application of your choice.

2) While the hardware resources are still shared between users, typically there are way fewer clients sharing the same server, allowing much greater CPU and RAM usage.

3) Does not require maintenance of the network, including uptime monitoring, very basic DDoS protection and general network security.

4) Does not require maintenance of the server hardware.

VPS Hosting Cons

1) Requires maintenance of everything software-related. Basically, you are being provided with just hardware, and installing and maintains everything else – the operating system, the web, ftp and mail servers, database and other applications is up to you.

2) Hardware resources are still shared – even though in a different way (virtualized, or in other words – isolated from each other) – the available CPU and RAM might not be enough for your needs in some cases.

3) In some very rare cases certain server-side applications might have issues running in a virtualized environment.

Shared Hosting Pros

1) The cheapest of all paid web hosting options, especially considering the high availability of coupon codes for additional savings.

2) Does not require any maintenance of the server operating system, the web, ftp and mail servers, dynamic language interpreters (php, python, etc), databases and basically any of the essential server-side software.

3) Does not require maintenance of the network, including uptime monitoring, load balancing, basic DDoS protection and general security.

4) Does not require maintenance of the server hardware.

Shared Hosting Cons

1) Very limited CPU and RAM. You are sharing the same hardware with a number (usually a big number) of other users, each allowed to use a portion of the shared hardware resources.

2) Inability to install and use own server-side applications, such as own web, ftp or mail server daemons.

3) Due to the shared nature of the access to CPU and RAM between users – the performance of your site might be affected by other clients.

4) Due to the shared nature of the access to hard drives – there is a possibility to face security issues, even though such possibility is very low on modern web hosting setups.

Most of the time people start their business or website / blog with a dedicated server straight away. but often time it is a unnecessary expense for your business. but there are some circumstances what you need a dedicated server and we are going to talk what they are.

Here are the main reasons for using a dedicated server.

  • Heavy Resource usage.
  • Heavy Visitor count / Bandwidth.
  • Need of Security.
  • Need of full Control over the server

If your hosting needs does not concern at least two of the above reasons, you don’t need a dedicated server. you will be fine with a VPS or a Cloud Hosting plan. most of the time people buy an expensive server planing to have more visitors in the future. but as we have seen, 98% of the time, they will not. to get an idea how many people visiting your website so you will be required to move to a dedicated server, see following example.

we moved this client’s website from a 4gb RAM VPS to a dedicated server after their blog began to have 1.5 million visitors per month. up until then, even at 1 million visitors per month they were just fine. website loading speed was under 2 seconds and there were no 100% resource usage. they had over 2000 blog posts and built with wordpress. this figure can be different and can be influenced by page size, downloadable content, database size, wordpress theme, plugin etc…

If you are planing to start with a dedicated server for your brand new website, out advice is don’t. invest that extra money for SEO or for a SSL certificate. it will bring more use for your website than having extra RAM and space which you will never use. good luck!

An Asia based web hosting company provides SSD VPS and Dedicated servers. Managed servers with good support and good speed.

As you may already aware, there are two type of hosting offered by hosting providers. windows hosting and Linux hosting, with sub categories like VPS, dedicated, shared etc… Linux is the most used operating system in 90% of the servers used for hosting websites. the reason is its flexibility, affordability and being compatible with PHP and MySQL. PHP is the most used programming language and MySQL is the most common database management system which used for popular CMS (content management system) like WordPress, Zen Cart, phpBB etc. Windows servers are mainly used for hosting websites created with windows specific technologies including ASP, .NET, MS Access, MSSQL and others.

Which type of hosting should you choose ?

it depends on the websites you are hosting and which programming language it uses. as mentioned above, you need to choose according with your website’s database management system and programming language. as an example, for WordPress you need Linux hosting.

Which one is cheaper ?

generally it’s Linux. because Linux is an open source operating system and service providers are not required to pay. on the other hand, windows server operating system is not free and every server has to have a valid license purchased from Microsoft. that cost adds to your hosting bill along with other facilities.

Which is better ?

both are the same in ways of security, reliability and in performance. if you are renting a server for your website, first see which language is your website being created with and select the compatible operating system or servers. good luck!

This tutorials is about cpanel built-in hotlink protection option. if you have access to your cpanel account you can follow these steps to prevent people from linking to your content and stop them stealing your bandwidth.

What is hotlinking ?

hotlinking is the term to identify direct linking to hosted images and files. as an example if you are running a blog and your posts has images or a featured image, someone else could link that image directly and embed it in to their own website without having to navigate to your website. this way your host loses bandwidth each time that image is shown to a viewer (loaded) and you wont be getting anything out of it. no views for your website, most of the time no credit, no backlinks, nothing. you simply becomes a free host for others.

How to stop this ?

if you are using linux hosting and has access to your cpanel, this is few simple steps and you can save your precious bandwidth and even redirect those hotlinkers visitors back to your website if you want to.

first of all log in to your cpanel and look for ‘hotlink protection’. it’s under the ‘Security’ section. click and go to hotlink protection options.

then if you haven’t already done so, click on ‘Enable’. you will see ‘URLs to allow access’ text box and you need to have your website’s url http and https with www and non www versions in each line. by default this is provided by the cpanel but if you don’t see this just put all your URL versions along with sub domains and other domains you would like to allow access to. allowing access to google.com is a good idea for google to index your images in google image search.

 

In the ‘Block direct access to the following extensions (comma-separated)’ section add file types you would like to prevent hot-linking to. cPanel already gives you some image file extensions by default but if you are hosting more file types, as an example .zip files, you need to add it without the dot and followed by a comma.

Finally you can redirect those visitors to hotlinking website to any page you like. it doesn’t even have to one you own or host. just anything. as an example you could redirect all of them to google. after adding your desired URL in the ‘Redirect the request to the following URL:‘ section click ‘Submit’.

If you are publishing adsense on your website, I wouldn’t recommend redirecting these visitors back to your website because source of this visitors coming from could be a non adsense friendly websites so be careful. low quality referral traffic to your adsense website could do more harm than good.

what is an expired domain?

An expired domain is a domain that has not being paid for renewal by it’s owner or registrant. and not yet available for re-registration nor renewal by it’s owner. when a domain expires domain registrars typically allows a grace period for registrants to renew it. if they failed to renew it within the given period registrars allow anyone to purchase the domain for a per-determined price (this is higher than registration fee) or send them to auction so highest bidder should have it.

Why expired domains ?

An expired domain has some value to it. not all of them but certain domains. these are usually keyword domains, brandable domains and short domain. also it is not a brand new domain to a search engines eyes so it will have some SEO value too. also many domains already have backlinks built to it.


Where to buy these expired domains?

there are many markets which offers expired domain as buy now or auctions. here is a list of some biggest markets.

Godaddy Auctions

‘Godaddy auctions’ is the largest domain market today. besides expired domains there are millions of domains sold by members. and yes, you can sell in this market too. you only need a subscription of $4.99 per year known as godaddy auction membership.

to see the expired domains only list, click advanced search and tick ‘expired domains’ and search. you can filter by value, traffic it received while being expired, bid count, current highest bid etc… expired domains are in the market for only 11 days and highest bidder will win the domain. after winning and making payment you should have your domain in your godaddy account within maximum 14 days. godaddy offers expired domains not only from it’s own registered ones but from other registrars as well. so the list is huge and you will find many valuable domains each day going as high as $50k.

Name.com Expired Domains

name.com expired domains are not auctioned, you can buy them instantly and use them instantly too. but there is a catch. when an expired domain enters the market it’s price is somewhat expensive.and gradually reduced in the following 5 days. as an example a .com domain enters the market at $149. then the price is reduced the next few days. in the last day or fifth day,  a .com domain can be purchased for $15.99 and unsold domains get deleted.

Namejet

namejet is a pretty hot market with a lot of auctions happening fast. this market is for high priced domains only. since namejet is not a registrar but only a domain market, it only have dropping / expiring domains.

sedo

sedo is not an expired domain market. but did you know that many domains acquired by expired domain auctions ends up in this place ? yes, many domain investors typically put their newly acquired domain up for sale with a profit margin in sedo market. if you failed to snap your domain in any of the above markets and you absolutely need that domain, you should look up on sedo and 80% of the time you will see it put up for sale or auction in there.

hope this info helps you and let us know if you know any other good place for buying expired domain names by commenting below. Good luck!

Hi folks,

If you came to this page by searching anything related to traffic bots, then may already know what a traffic bot is. for those who do not know, a traffic bot is a program which can generate fake traffic to a specific web site or a page. simply a user simulator. these program will automatically visit the given website and can program to do things like clicking a specific inner link, a random inner link or just hang around scrolling and moving the cursor imitating human like behavior.

Why do you need fake visitors ?

This could be any reason. could be to fake your sites popularity, to get ad revenue, or show fake stats when flipping websites. and this practice is very common among traffic sellers. 99.99% of the time the traffic sold by traffic sellers in fiverr.com , seocleark etc is bot traffic.

ok, now you know what this bots do, and you might be wondering how to do this by yourself. for any reason you want to run your own traffic bot, first thing is you need a traffic bot. da!

I am not going to review traffic bots here, so go ahead and research on your own and come back here to learn how to run this in a VPS.

How to run this program ?

most of these program made to run on windows environments. you can have these installed in your local PC but that would not be practical for running 24/7. also these bots need a faster internet connection to run multiple threads. about 100Mbps or so. this is where windows VPS come in. a windows VPS is basically a windows computer running in a data-center and maintained and serviced by the hosting provider. there will be no additional bills for Internet service, you just pay a monthly fee for renting this computer.

a good source is chicago vps. read our chicagoVPS review here

after purchasing you will be given login info. an IP and username/password. use your windows PCs ‘Remote Desktop Connection’ program to log in to your VPS.

you can find this program by searching or under ”Windows Accessories > Remote Desktop Connection’

after logging in install your traffic bot and let it running. follow the guide provided by software developer regarding options in the application. now you will have to check like once a day to see if the program working correctly. in my own experience some programs crash when running in high thread counts. you can run maximum of 50 threads in 2GB Ram and 100 in 4GB Ram. if you can go for a dedicated server you can run 250 thread at once with 8GB ram. this numbers can be different slightly with each application but as in general, this is the limit.

hope this information if useful. and good luck with your bots.
