RAID configurations are one of the primary reasons for businesses selecting dedicated server hosting over other high-uptime options that are available, namely eNlight India Cloud Hosting and VPS hosting. ESDS offers a range of dedicated servers that can be adapted to suit your needs as you wish and we offer a range of hard drive options that you can use to develop a RAID solution for your dedicated server.
This is one of the most popular RAID configurations available and is seen as a way of boosting the performance of disks in a server by combining 2 or more physical hard drives into a single logical disk, therefore combining the read/write speeds of all disks and splitting the data evenly across the disk array. It should be noted that in a RAID 0 array, the disks contained within the array needn’t necessarily be the same model or even the same logical size; however, the disk space that can be contributed to the array by each physical disk will be limited by the total size of the smallest disk in the array.
Compared to other RAID applications available, RAID 0 is one of the best performing solutions available; even though there is no additional data security offered, this can be achieved using other solutions such as backup applications that can back up your data to an external server located off-site. It should be noted that the performance of any RAID configuration is going to be dependent on the controller that has been used to create the array, with on-board controllers that are built into motherboards being less effective and reliable than dedicated RAID controllers that can be found in the form of PCI-E cards.
This has been designed to provide additional security for the data that you have stored on your dedicated server because the data that is stored on one disk is mirrored onto a second hard drive, with the intention being that if the primary hard drive fails then there is a secondary hard drive available containing an exact copy of the data contained on the failed drive. RAID 1 can also improve the performance of your server by increasing the read speeds at which data is accessed because the server will have two locations from which it can access the necessary.
RAID 1 is ideal for situations where data security and integrity are essential because it means that even if you do experience hardware failure with one of your hard disks, this won’t knock your dedicated server offline completely; once you have replaced the failed disk, it is fairly easy to rebuild the array without causing any further issues. However, ESDS to advise that you also invest in other methods to keep your data safe such as off-site backup because there have been occurrences where both hard drives have failed or a server has been destroyed.
Whereas RAID 0 and RAID 1 require two identical drives, RAID 5 requires 3 identical drives to function as intended. It seen as being a cost effective method to achieving high read figures without compromising the reliability of the data contained within the array since this is distributed throughout the array. Even though the write speeds that you will see with a RAID 5 array won’t be amazing, you should be looking to use this in scenarios that are more heaily read-orientated, such as databases that are powering the CMS systems for websites that receive high volumes of traffic.
RAID 1+0 (often referred to as RAID 10) is a combination of RAID 1 and RAID 0 meaning that it will be able to provide the ultimate in performance and data security. A RAID 10 array will require four identical drives to make sure that the array can function correctly; the drives are then separated into pairs to create two separate RAID 1 arrays, with these two arrays then being combined using RAID 0 to create a single high-performance volume. The data that is placed into a RAID 10 array will be spread across all the hard drives in the array meaning that access is going to be needed to all drives when reading them, therefore meaning that the read power of all the drives is going to be combined which will mean faster processing times for your data when retrieving it.
Although this can be a more costly configuration to setup, it is by far the best performing solution available to businesses that can afford it. Useful applications for this may include file servers where information is going to be constantly requested or in situations where disk performance and reliability are on par with each other in terms of the need for them.
Until a few years ago, the Linux and Windows server hosting services were radically different. Today’s systems platform compatibility of the companies hosting these differences will reduce dramatically.
The way to access the server is one of the main differences between the two types of services. Both allow access via FTP, a protocol for transferring files, but only offers Linux hosting access, a system that allows for remote access to a server. Both allow you to exchange files with the second offers advanced controls and access to critical areas of the server.
The standard of Linux-based systems are designed and developed according to the needs of programmers and technicians. These are applications that can later provide functionality to the end customer, developing and improving systems based on Linux. On the other hand, Windows systems are already designed taking the customer into consideration.
Another major difference between the platforms are supported programming languages. PHP, Perl and CGI are associated with Linux Hosting as ASP,. NET or ColdFusion are supported by the Windows platform. The same goes for the databases to Linux being “preferred” using MySQL privileges as the Windows Hosting MS Access or SQL Server. All these factors influence the development of applications or websites for each of the platforms.
On security issues, it is widespread that the Windows platform has more holes than its rival Linux. Although the concept is not totally false, because it is free and open to the large community of programmers, can correct and update any security flaws more quickly. For Windows, only these gaps are bridged with the publication of “patches to” or “service packs” which does not occur so quickly. In any case both rentals can be operated and maintained safely if carried out by qualified personnel.
Ultimately the key is to passing the the content and information to the website. It is the customer and / or programmer who decide which platform best serves their interests while taking the features and services into account that customers request.
You probably already have heard of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). It is a set of actions to improve the positioning of your site in search engines, that is, when the user types a keyword in Google , the goal of SEO is to make one or several of the pages on your website , appear among the top results of search organic.
Important: Do not confuse search with organic sponsored link (paid area).
When we want to be well positioned in the relevant areas (free) search engine, we are trying to maintain a large and durable friendship. In the case of Google this tool goes by the name of spider. This “robot” speaks several languages, but still not perfect, language as a flash, for example, could not be readed and also has its own logic of reasoning.
Understood, how it works?
To be well positioned in Google , which is considered the leading Internet search engine, you need to know everything that is said about your business on the net counts. Warning! I said all that is spoken, not just what you say.
Much like the marketing, we work with the following factors:
Corporate identity - is what your company is, characteristics, actions, personality and positioning.
visual identity - is what the company wants to show on the corporate identity, not necessarily all, is usually the good side, of course.
Corporate image – is the puzzle that we set in our mind, creating an image with the data we received from the company and what is said about Google, it follows to the letter.
So, always work with on-page content (content of your site), and off-page (information about you to other Web sites, blogs and social networks).
Working with SEO is not just IT, it should be really able to communicate with people and “Robots” at the same time .
A work of managing the quality of online information, and good relationships with other sites and people.
To do this I use a cycle of action:
First, leave the site to be able to found in search engines. For starters Google teaches how to do this.
Do the analysis of your site with at least a monthly report obtained from your site.
Make a buzz tracking information about your company, and what is said on the web about the keyword you want to work. How? Follow here.
Work with a digital press secretary, notice the magical word “digital”, this work is different from the common press secretary.
Work information in social networks and blogs like on your site, (using the same technique).
Remember : Your site is the amphitheater, so search engines, external websites, social networks and blogs should be linked to it. So keep a good relationship on the web and strategically.
If your product goes under fire in the network, these sites will also be highlighted in search engines even if you do not answer or know their existence.
What you see in the image of search engines is the corporate vision and the parameters of these robots.
Last and important tip:
Think about the keywords you want to work, use a few good, and enjoy this little help here.
Know that you want as well as the wave of spider’s best friend, your competitors may also be fighting for it. To learn about your competitors is easy, ask google, he is sincere enough to say. Go to: www.google.co.in and enter the desired keyword. See the difference between the situations: when there is competition and when there is not.
KEYWORDS: Dedicated Hosting or SEO Services, for example.
Note that these words are very worked within the sites that appear in the top positions in their social networks and other sites linking to them, realize that there are a number of access and are made mostly in html, java and / or css.
KEYWORD: `eg` e-Governance Services.
Making an analysis of 5 / 2 we can see that: In the case of e-Governance Services, a pdf file appears in the top 10 positions, files inside pages of sites, where domains should appear.
Note that features such as meta tags and other common in optimizing sites were not used, and phrases that appear below the address of the best positioned sites, are for internal matters and were not used in a purposeful way for SEO.
In this case it is easy to obtain a prominent position without much effort with an optimization work.
It is important to know that SEO is a work of medium / long term it aims to increase the amount of visitors through search engines trust. Once done the work, when the site appears well in the polls , it will be credible.
Hands-on and good luck!
There are six things that underpin any hosting provider: Server, Control Panel, Domains, Accounts, Support, Legal Organization. Now I will tell you the main options.
Reselling - Cheap, no need to deal with configuring the server. But you are dependent on the upstream host more than in other cases. Everywhere, except cPanel cannot create sub-resellers (I do not envy these clients).
VDS or Virtual Dedicated Server - You need to deal with configuring the server, full freedom to choose how and what to do. If something will break, will have to correct ourselves. In addition, there is little dependence on the owner of VDS-node.
Dedicated Server Rental - Same advantages as for the VDS, but if something goes wrong, you cannot reload or quickly rearrange. Sometimes, however, provide a reboot-panel. The cost depends heavily on the country.
Dedicated Server Colocation – Virtually the same as the previous one, but cheaper fee per month, you can quickly pick up and put in another place.
Just need to make a selection panel.
cPanel - The Monster, there are many functions that have cast a lot and sometimes make little sense. Expensive, requires 512 MB of RAM for VDS. If the client finds it a more or less convenient, it requires the administrator and reseller every time to search function. Not bad for working over SSH.
DirectAdmin - Looks good, functions conveniently and logically structured. Do not have all the functions supported by cpanel and slightly fewer billing panel.
The panel is better to take from one who has place a server, because the internal licensed much cheaper.
Sooner or later the client wants to register you with the hosting domain. There are many registrars who offer reseller program. Now the situation has changed, so I cannot say anything.
There are several systems, but my favorite is:
WHMCS - Great stuff, but expensive. If you do not think about high price – you can take.
Form of business
Legal entity with a license – Expensive and painful way. The server should only be Dedicated and only in India. You also need to draw up a communication center. Taken together, takes about six months and 100 thousand in the firm.
Under the contract – may conclude a partnership agreement with larger firm. They have a license, and you sell their hosting. So I was not interested, frankly, so cannot say anything.
Here, it seems, is all.
A Wikipedia is a collaborative website that can be edited by multiple users. Users of a wiki can create, edit, delete or modify the web page content in an interactive, easy and fast way and these facilities makes a wiki an effective tool for writing and sharing collaborative information.
HISTORY Of Wikipedia
We will rely on the history of Wikipedia that is one of the most famous wikis.
Wikipedia began as a project on January 15, 2001. The original idea soon caught in other languages only two months later, on March 16, 2001, which was the German Wikipedia, but paradoxically up to two months, it did not had collaborators. At March 31, 2008 all editions had joined 9,790,407 items, of which 2,259,431 (24.136%) for the Wikipedia in English.
In March 2000, Jimbo Wales created Nupedia, an encyclopedia project based on an ambitious process of peer review designed to make their articles of a quality comparable to that of encyclopedias professionals to the participation of scholars (mostly doctoral candidates and academics), who intended to work on a non-paid basis.
Due to the slow progress of the project in 2001, a wiki (UseMod) connected to Nupedia Originally intended to expedite the creation of items in parallel, before they pass the peer review system.
There is some controversy among the founders of Nupedia who proposed originally the idea of using a wiki to Jimbo Wales, Larry Sanger if either a third person. But the fact is that the success of that “small project parallel” (Wikipedia) ended up eclipsing Nupedia, which ceased operation in 2003.
Larry Sanger, editor responsible for Nupedia, went to work with Wikipedia and worked actively in the organization and project guidelines. His contribution marked an important bias in the initial orientation project until the project was split in February 2002. In the Wales, it currently holds the reins of the initiative, both in time spent and resources, and is a member of the Wikimedia Foundation, which deals with supervision. At this point there are no publishers or personnel that are hired for the project. Wikipedia works with a voluntary contribution of thousands of Wikipedians.
On September 20, 2004 Wikipedia reached one million articles in 105 languages and caused a considerable attention from the media communication. The article “a million” was published in Hebrew and addresses the issue of Kazakhstan’s official teaching.
On March 1, 2006 Wikipedia had over a million articles.
Is there a vandalism and if yes, how it is controlled?
Yes if there is vandalism on the wiki (Usually made by unknown individuals) that deleted important content, introduce errors, added inappropriate or offensive content (e.g. insults), or just blatantly violate the rules of the wiki, are also common spam attempts, for example: The introduction of a wiki link to rise in the Internet search engines. Attempts to advertise or proselytize (of ideology, religion or other) through the wiki.
Login material that violates copyrights.
Some solutions used to combat vandals are:
Quickly revert your changes, so that they become discouraged
The reason for this design with HTML is that, with many of its cryptic labels, it is not easily read by non-technical users. HTML tags cause the text itself and it is difficult to read and edit for most users. Therefore promotes the use of plain text editing with a few simple conventions for structure and style.
Wikis are generally designed with the philosophy of making it easy to correct mistakes, rather it is difficult to make. The wikis are very open, even provide a means to verify the validity of recent changes on content pages. In almost every wiki, there is a specific page,”Recent Changes”, which lists the latest editions of articles or a list of changes made during a period of time. Some wikis can filter the list to undo changes made by vandalism.
From the change log, other functions: the “History Review “show earlier versions of the page and the different feature highlighting the changes between two revisions.
Using an editor can view and restore a previous version of History of the article and the feature can be used to decide when that is necessary or not. A regular wiki user can see the difference of an edit listed on the “Recent Changes” and, if an unacceptable edit, consult the history and restore a previous version. This process is more or less complicated depending on who uses the wiki software.
In case if unacceptable edits are missed on “Recent Changes”, some wiki provide additional content control that can monitor the page to ensure that a page or a set maintain the quality of pages.
Dedicated Server is been the most popular server in the web hosting industry. Because of it’s security features and also being the most reliable one this server is considered to be the best of it. Dedicated Server Architecture can improve the efficiency of a client server systems by using one server for each application that exists within an organization.
The architecture consists of many diversions and also has redundant features. A dedicated process has one to one relationship with user process. A dedicated process occupies certain amount of memory. The most common example of a dedicated server architecture describes the typical operation of a web hosting service. Several web hosts allow customers to purchase dedicated server plans in which only their website and data is stored on the machine. Doing so enables the customer to considerably improve performance for the simple fact that website traffic is limited to a single group.
Dedicated server is basically famous for its reliability and the execution process which gives a user the liberty of full control over the server with the ease and accessibility. Dedicated server architecture is the process of limiting applications to improve the efficiency of client-server systems. In this instance, applications don’t necessarily refer to software, yet elements such as FTP and mail communications that are dedicated solely to a single unit.
As far as the cost is concerned it’s a bit considered as the expensive one because of its utility features and having a different setup altogether for a single dedicated servers. The overall goal of dedicated server architecture is to maintain one server for each application running in a given environment. Improved efficiency is a good reason to opt for this type of architecture, but one should consider the cost factor as well. After all, leasing a dedicated server isn’t exactly cheap and the price sky rockets when ownership is involved. Perhaps the best approach would be to move a smaller application over to this architecture to gauge efficiency and performance. If all goes well, you can transition other applications to dedicated servers based on costs and time.
Not sharing the server or the space with anyone is the biggest advantage of the dedicated servers. It provides one with the full freedom and control over the server and also facilitates with the softwares and all the necessary requirements of the server. In a dedicated server architecture, each client process connects to a dedicated server process. The server process is not shared by any other client. Dedicated server architectures do not support HTTP, FTP, or WebDAV clients. Only database clients are supported.
Web hosting is the base for any IT or web presence on the World Wide Web. This is the first step which need to be considered before having web presence. There are different types of server available in the market and each of them have different set of properties. Similarly, a dedicated hosting and shared hosting has different flavors which involves the basic functions respectively.
A dedicated web server consists of all the resources dedicated to a particular client who owns it whereas shared server as the name suggest is shared by many a clients at once. A dedicated hosting gives the liberty to have full control over the server which can be used any how by the user. A shared server basically involves different users on one server as well as doesn’t provide much freedom on the server as the resources are being shared. In other words, a shared server has many different domains hosted on it. All of the server’s resources are shared by many websites present on the server. On a shared server you have control over your folder and everything within it only.
In dedicated server a user tend to get more security as compared to shared server. To put it in simple words, each has a different control given to the user to manage their website. A dedicated server is a web server that holds your Website, and your Website alone. Shared servers, which are the most common type of hosting available, hold many different Websites. These Websites are competing for server resources.
When it comes to IP a user gets dedicated IPs for their website in case of dedicated server but while looking at shared server one needs to even share the same IP with the other users on the same server. To put it the other way round we can say that the dedicated hosting is quite costlier and shared hosting is quite cheaper in comparison.
There can be many factors while considering any of the platform for one’s businesses, one of the major factor is security which is more redundant in dedicated server as one has everything centered around one user, one owns the server it means he is the boss,no more limitation in bandwidth usage,Better Performance. They do not have to share space, bandwidth or any other feature with any other website. It is most suitable for websites that expect a heavy amount of traffic. Whereas, in shared server one shares the IP with other users,Slow Server Response Time, generally Server Crashes Regularly. Shared means multiple websites hosted in the same location. So, in a server, there are multiple websites sharing the space, bandwidth and so on. This type of hosting is ideal for small business as well as new webmasters who are trying out for the first time. It has some limitations in its resources.
To sum it all one can say that both the web servers has its advantages and disadvantages. It all depends upon the user’s requirements. But in a way a dedicated server hosting is always a better choice then a shared server.
When you look at any technical aspect of the server it is considered that it may come up with an technical issues. Similarly, active directory issues on dedicated servers is one of them. The technical aspect can face some or the other issues because it is automated not man made. Active Directory sites are a very important topic and yet are commonly misconfigured. A site is a combination of the physical (wires, cables, routers, etc.) and the logical (Active Directory configuration, IP Subnet, etc.). A site may span one or more domains. A site needs to be able to allow all the domain controllers within it to replicate to each other in a timely fashion. Clients will treat all DCs in the site as equals.
There are different active directories issues that may occur like Dynamic DNS Update Problems, Mail delivery Problems, Internet Protocol (IP) configuration, Active network connection during installation, Client connections and High-Encryption Pack and Internet connection software. Some of these are explained below:
IP Configuration : The issues with IP Configuration can be said as the one of the very common or basic issues in which if one doesn’t uses a dedicated IP then the DNS registration may not work So, one needs a dedicated IP address to install, the Active Directory domain controller should point to its own IP address in the DNS server list to prevent possible DNS connectivity issues, and Active Directory functionality shouldn’t be lost.
Active Network Connection Required During Installation : the heading itself explains that while installation is on there must be active network connection required. Active Directory Installation Failed’ Error Message When You Use Dcpromo.exe to Promote a Server
DNS Configuration : The DNS configuration plays an important role in installing active directory issues it (DNS) supports Active Directory DNS entries (SRV records) must be present for Active Directory to function properly. You need to keep in mind the following DNS configuration issues when you install Active Directory on a home network:
* Root zone entries
* DNS forwarders
Client Connections : Client connections are of prime importance when you look up into Active directories. To prevent any issues of active directories in client connections, the clients should connect to the Active Directory domain controller using an internal network on a second network adapter. This helps clients to obtain an IP address from your Internet service provider (ISP). To achieve this configuration with a second network adapter on the server connected to a hub you can do it with the help of above point of IP address. You can use NAT or ICS to isolate the clients on the local network. To ensure the optimum DNS connectivity The clients should point to the domain’s DNS server. The DNS server’s forwarder will then allow the clients to access DNS addresses on the Internet.
High-Encryption Pack and Internet Connection Software : The most important aspect of any web based technology is Internet connection. Basically the softwares which must be used, if your Internet connection requires the installation of an Internet connection program from your ISP, be aware that older versions of these connection programs that are not specifically designed to work with Windows 2000 may cause startup issues if you install them on a Windows 2000-based computer.
