The New Economy

new economy The New EconomyWhile the transition from brick-and-mortar businesses to digital pixels will never be complete — after all, we are social creatures — more and more the Internet will become the de facto platform for profiling and finding goods and services. Indeed, the marketing resource par excellence, Marketing Sherpa, has predicted online markets and search will be the most desired marketing fields in the coming years. The new crux of our modern economy has less and less to do with traditional markets and more and more to do with online markets.

Without the proper amount of bandwidth and the servers to process the incoming clicks, moving towards the great World Wide Web will be an exercise in futility. This requires having an experienced IT department and the appropriate array of hardware. While the transition to online markets seems like a natural evolution, it must be pointed out that a great deal of infrastructure must be in place in order to capitalize on the transition.

The appropriate hardware should have embedded board that are capable of processing millions of permutations and content requests in under 10 seconds. Most users will abandon a site — or page — should it fail to load within 10 seconds. Though patience is a virtue, it is a detriment in the online marketplace. Long load-times are indicative of a rather “unprofessional” site. Whether or not this is actually the case is beside the point.

Is Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Right For You?

businessman Is Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Right For You?Managed dedicated web hosting is for an individual or company that wants storage and bandwidth without the restrictions that you get by choosing a free web hosting service. If you have a site which you want to have more bells and whistles programmed into it, then managed dedicated hosting is the way to go. Because free web hosting is “free”, it is limited in what it can offer and often you are forced to accept the hosting services advertising material.

Dedicated services give you more email addresses, sometimes up to 500 addresses. Dedicated hosting can also add database and storage features that go well beyond what a free hosting service provides. This allows for the development of applications that enable you to store data on the server side also and have queries and other types of program and programming scripts embedded into your web-site.

Bandwidth is normally the biggest problem facing any website. Some websites use as much as a 1000Gb each month, some far more. What is Bandwidth? It’s a measure of the amount of data traveling in both directions on the website. Knowing how much bandwidth you may need is an essential part of your web hosting considerations. If someone offer unlimited bandwidth, check their acceptable use policies. You may find that their ‘unlimited’ use policy is actually quite restricted.
