Affiliate marketing is one of the primary methods of promotion used by a number of web hosting companies because it provides them with a steady stream of customers without the need for them to pay anything out until a sale has been made. Affiliate marketing is a form of passive promotion as the promotion itself is done by the affiliates of a web hosting company as in order for them to make money, they first have to achieve a sale meaning that it is down to them to promote the hosting company in their own way or by using promotional banners and content provided by the companies that they are an affiliate of.
For professional web marketers, affiliate marketing is an easy way to make money because they have the skills required to setup a website and promote it effectively through search engines; as a beginner it is important for you to pick up on the core SEO skills if you wish to be successful with affiliate marketing because you want your affiliate websites to achieve the highest search engine ranking possible. The amount that is paid out on a sale will depend on the web hosting company that you are promoting along with the product that is sold; the commission structures used will differ between web hosting companies, with some opting to use a flat structure which pays out the same amount of commission for each sale, whereas others may use a tiered system that will pay out commission based on the pricing bracket that the value of the sale falls into – others simply prefer to pay out a certain percentage of each sale. Starting with affiliate marketing is free, but in order to be successful you need to be prepared to put in time and effort to achieve the desired results.
Why should I consider starting affiliate marketing?
Starting affiliate marketing is one way in which you can provide yourself with an additional income with the need for relatively little work; some of the benefits to affiliate marketing include:
How can I setup an affiliate websites?
To begin with you will need to sign up for the affiliate schemes of the relevant web hosting companies so that you are able to obtain an affiliate link that you can send potential customers to; this link will log a cookie on the visitor’s computer so that the web hosting company knows that you have referred that visitor, therefore meaning that many sales made here will be recorded under your affiliate account. It is important to note that an affiliate link is unique to each affiliate and are designed to ensure that sales can be accurately tracked so that the correct commission is paid each month.
An affiliate website should be formed around the content that you are going to develop for it because it is this content that you will be using to sell a web hosting provider to potential customers. As you want to convert the visitors to your website into affiliate sales, content should be updated on a regular basis and you should make a point of any discounts or promotions that a web hosting company may have on that could be of potential interest to your visitors.

Dedicated Hosting Price Comparison
Dedicated servers are often the most expensive form of web hosting provided by many web hosting companies, but the benefits of ESDS dedicated hosting often justify the benefits. ESDS provides a range of affordable dedicated servers that will cater for the needs of users and businesses at all levels, with custom configurations being available where complex requirements necessitate large hosting budgets.
Windows servers and Linux servers provide the ideal platform on which large web applications can be designed to service thousands of users as the resources of a dedicated server can accommodate large number of users at a single time without even beginning to show any strain. The price difference between Windows servers and Linux servers can be one of the deciding for some businesses; the open source nature of the Linux operating system lends it to being more popular during a time when budgets are being cut and companies are looking to save money wherever possible – Windows, however, is still in demand because of the enterprise-class applications offered by Microsoft for the platform.
The range of dedicated servers available from ESDS guarantees that there is a solution available for users of all levels and budgets. A low-power Intel Atom server is the most affordable dedicated solution offered by ESDS, but provides the perfect environment for users moving up from shared web hosting or VPS server hosting. At the other end of the scale ESDS offers dual quad-core Intel dedicated servers that pack a lot of power with 16GB of DDR3 RAM and two 300GB SAS disks; a server of this specification is designed for businesses that are looking to host web applications that receive thousands of visitors every month, with stability of their hosting platform being one of the key requirements for them.
The price that you see is the price you pay for your dedicated server with ESDS, as we don’t charge any setup fee. You will also be paying for the following benefits:
Dedicated Hosting or Not
The choice of dedicated hosting or not is something that is going to be decided by exactly what you see as being necessary in a web hosting, with small businesses probably not facing the demand that would allow them to exploit the features offered by a dedicated to their full potential. A cloud hosting service such as eNlight can offer a similar experience to dedicated server hosting with regards to the hosting environment that is offered, but not everyone will be satisfied with the lack of physical hardware configuration changes that can be made even though the resource allocations of an eNlight virtual machine can be altered as required.
The main negative factor surrounding dedicated hosting for many parties is the price that they have to pay for a dedicated server; however, with low-end dedicated servers offering performance that is akin to or lower than that offered by a VPS server, opting for a cheaper virtual hosting solution will provide you with a greater selection of performance benefits. The more expensive dedicated servers offered by ESDS provide resources so powerful that even a website which receives thousands of visitors a day probably won’t even begin to tax the power of the server.
If you are unsure of whether a dedicated server is going to be the most effective solution for you, contact ESDS as we will provide you with the advice that you need in order to make a decision. With a range of services on offer including shared hosting, cloud hosting and VPS hosting, ESDS will be able to point you towards the hosting plan that will offer you the environment and features necessary for your website.

Data Center Migration
If you are looking to co-locate as opposed to leasing dedicated servers directly, ESDS provides a range of co-location hosting opportunities both for existing customers and those looking to migrate their servers from another co-location provider. The NOC staff in the ESDS data center can provide assistance with the setup of your servers so that you are able to get them online over our network in no time at all.
Choosing co-location is something often reserved for businesses with complex hosting requirements that can’t be met by dedicated server hosting; this may be businesses that require a hardware configuration that isn’t obtainable through a web hosting company, or may have a bulk purchase agreement with a hardware supplier. The racks in the ESDS data center can accommodate servers of all sizes, up to 4U in fact, so that space is never going to be an issue for you if you choose ESDS as your Co-location hosting provider. You will be provided with tools that will enable you to monitor your co-located servers around the clock so that you can be reassured of the availability of your machines.
Experts warn that there is still insufficient attention paid to security when it comes to the newfangled, more and more an emerging trend of “IT - Cloud Computing”. What are the main reasons for the choice made in favor of the clouds? The answer is obvious: in the first place, it is economical and easy to use.
In a broad sense, “cloud computing” is outsourcing data previously placed on personal computers. If you use e-mail services, such as Gmail, or if you have an account with social networking sites, then you’re already using cloud computing, since your data is stored and processed on remote dedicated servers. The main advantage of such an organization working with data is their availability in any place where there is Internet access.
In terms of corporate consumer cloud technologies enable growing businesses to reduce IT costs by reducing the budgets for the purchase of hardware and software necessary for processing and storing information.
Private users, for example, can upload pictures or documents to the cloud, using services such as Flickr or Google Docs, and access them from home, internet cafe, or, for example, with a variety of portable devices.
“Cloud” mechanisms and principles of treatment, storage, and access to it, of course, are very comfortable and profitable. However, according to experts, the main problem is that the user has no idea of who, where and how to manage the infrastructure, ensuring the safety of information. The user does not know whether in fact, data is protected or not. He has no confidence in the fact that his information will not disappear or will not be disclosed at some point.
Many studies show that despite the increasing popularity of outsourcing of IT resources, half of the heads of organizations are extremely concerned about the issues of information security and what are the potential threats to virtualized computing environments that can create the problem, whose solution requires an integrated approach.
Having its own IT infrastructure, companies take their own security measures for protection, for example, using tools such as network filters and antivirus software. If the data is stored and processed in the external environment, the security issues are beyond the control of the owners of the data.
Currently there are no official regulations that would regulate the safety issues for suppliers of cloud solutions and services, through which the user can be completely confident that the security of its data is provided properly.
Virtualization technologies not only reduce costs and save energy consumption, but also generate a lot of questions for data protection. In particular, the concentration of cloud technologies require a huge amount of information in a single space, which, in turn, can bring computer criminals of all shades and degrees. For example, in January of this year, the functioning of email service by Google was in jeopardy because of hacker attack.
With the development and popularization of cloud technologies, it can be expected that a new generation of malicious software will be developed that can serve as a significant reason to compromise themselves, and cloud services providers offering services.
Finally, of particular concern in the development of cloud technologies is the possibility of interference with privacy of service users. For example, various governmental and other entities are much easier to gain access to user data stored in the cloud, rather than the data that the user stores locally. Such examples are already there. For example, many lenders are using social networks as a tool to find debtors.
Most of the western data center operators take the total capacity available for data center, it is then subtracted from the loss on the distribution of power and the power consumed by mechanical cooling systems, then reduce the result, at least 10-20% to protect against the risk of exceeding the maximum permissible value, and receive energy, which is allocated to the IT load. Such an approach may lead to the fact that the IT load is an excess of electricity.
The main problem is that almost none of the data centers run at full capacity and some even up to 50% of its capacity, since it is unlikely that all servers will be run simultaneously at full load. And, at some different times of workloads, even if the load of some services will reach 100%, we are often based on the fact that peak loads do not coincide at the same time. With this in mind, you can use more servers than the number available at your disposal of electrical energy.
This is the approach used in the airline ticket.
And, just like the airlines, which may overbook more passengers than seats in the aircraft.
Here are three ways to resolve problems with the growth of consumption in data centers:
The latest decision is a favorite topic of research, but it is almost never used in practice, because it is equivalent to solving the problem of selling extra tickets by placing the two passengers in one place. In some ways, it works but it is insecure and does not make customers happy. Option 3 reduces the amount of resources available for all workloads by reducing the overall quality of service. For most commercial organizations that cannot be a good economic decision. The best can be considered as options 1 and 2.
One of the classes of applications, which work hard to make energy-efficient, are interactive information-intensive workloads. Search the Internet, advertising, machine translation – are examples of this type of workload. These workloads can be very profitable, so the above option 3, option to reduce the quality of service cannot be economically justified.
The best solution for these workloads could be the calculations of energy consumption. In essence, the purpose of calculation of proportionate energy consumption – to ensure that the server is running with a load of 10%, could consume 10% power server running at full load. Of course, there are overheads, and this goal will never be fully achieved, but the closer we get to it, the smaller will be the costs and impact on the environment by using standard workloads.
The good news is that, in this direction we have achieved some success. When it was first proposed to use the calculations with commensurate energy consumption, many servers are in standby mode that can consume 80% of energy consumed by them at full load. Today a good server can reduce their energy consumption to 45% in standby mode. We did not come close to our goal, but make good progress. In fact, the CPU is very energy efficient by today’s standards, but the largest consumers of electricity are the other components of the server. Memory is a great opportunity, and mobile devices show us the limits of the possible. I hope we will continue to make progress, borrowing the idea of cell phones in the industry and applying them to the dedicated servers.
In Power management of interactive data-intensive services, a group of researchers from Google and the University of Michigan has studied the problem of power commensurate with the standard (OLDI) systems using these types of workloads as searching Google, advertising, and translation. These workloads are difficult because they provide the required delay time which is performed through the use of large modules built-in cache and when the workload is reduced, these machines must be in working condition to meet the requirements of the application to the delay. It cannot be an option of concentration of the workload on a small number of servers – the size of the cache requires that all servers have continued to be accessible, and therefore, when the workload will be reduced, all servers must be provided with a work load, so that the whole system could not go into low power mode.
The size of the cache memory data requires use of all of the servers, so when the workload is reduced, the load of each server is reduced in proportion, but in fact it never goes into standby mode. They should always be included and ready to handle these requests with the required delay time.
Provided by the CPU switches to low power mode may be the best and the only mechanism for balancing power and performance, but by itself it is not possible to achieve a commensurate power.
There is a need to improve the low power modes during periods of downtime for a shared cache and integrated memory controllers. There is a great opportunity to save energy costs of system memory using a low power mode [mobile systems today do well with it, so that techniques are available].
Even with batch requests, a translation of the entire system in a low power modes during inactivity cannot provide an acceptable balance between latency and power consumption. In the case of a coherent approach, the translation of the entire system to the active low power mode is the most promising solution to ensure a balanced power consumption while maintaining acceptable delay requests.
If we generalize the standard types of workloads (OLDI), the goal of providing the required delay is achieved by allocating cache memory which is very large between the running servers. When the workload is reduced from maximum to minimum values, all of these servers are less loaded, but they did not go into standby mode, and therefore cannot translate the whole system into low power mode.
I like to look at the servers that support these workloads, as if in a two dimensional representation. Each row represents one complete copy of the cache memory, distributed among hundreds of servers. One could serve a number of these workloads and successfully meet the required levels of latency applications, but a number will not increase. To increase the workload beyond that can be handled in the same row, additional rows will be required. When the system searches for a query, it is not sent to hundreds of systems, but only the servers in the same row.
This method of scaling at the level of the series gives an almost complete proportionality of the overall level of the data center, except for the following two problems:
If the workload is much higher than one series and predictably varies between the minimum and maximum values, this method of scaling at the level of the series gives very good results. It does not work, if the workloads vary greatly, or when you want to scale less than one series.
IPv6 stands for Internet Protocol version 6. A protocol is a set of rules that enable communication between devices. Roughly, the protocol is a “language“. The IP is the foundation of the Internet, and the version currently used is version 4 (IPv4).
IPv6 is needed because the free IPv4 addresses are running out. Forecasts indicate that they will be depleted by 2012. No new IP numbers would be too complicated to connect new users to the Internet. In IPv6 the number of addresses available is much larger than in IPv4, which will allow continued growth of the network. It is expected that both IPv4 and IPv6, work side by side on the Internet for many years. But in the long term, IPv6 will replace IPv4.
If we compare the IP address with the address of a house, with the adoption of IPv6, it will be as if all households gain a new number, but unlike the former, as a code. Thus the houses would still have your old number and the new code, they would not mix or confuse, because it would be different. Both could be used to arrive at homes, but when they all received the new code, the old could be left out.
The deployment of IPv6 should be transparent to end users (domestic). That is, if all goes well, little will change, your computer will be automatically configured, the Internet will continue to function and evolve, and you will notice, over time, making communication more easier between applications and people, such as of video conferencing, VoIP and collaboration, among others.
Some things will be easier. For example, if you have a small network in your home with multiple computers or other devices, each will have a fixed IP address and valid on the Internet. This means that you no longer need a computer or router that will be responsible for connection sharing (technically, we call it NAT – Network Address Translation).
With the valid IPs, it will be easier to access remotely and safely. You can, for example, use your home printer from the computer of your office, if desired. If other equipment in your house are connected to the Internet, such as stoves, refrigerators, coffee makers, lights, surveillance cameras, etc., you can control them or view their status from the distance.
If the deployment of IPv6 fails, you will notice that the Internet will continue to work … But probably the pace at which new applications will decrease, it will be a very interesting show. Perhaps access to the network will also becomes more expensive.
