The Danger of ‘Free’

Bill Gates once said, “Like almost everyone who uses email, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren’t so exciting.”

All of us know when we see an offer too good to be true, but when it comes to the internet, we tend to believe it. When a new company offers us free web hosting, we don’t consider in what way we are paying for this. We all know we have to pay, but it doesn’t occur to us how we pay. Sometimes it’s easier to not consider the dangers of revealing the excessive amount of information we have to give to receive free web hosting or any other gift, or the wasted time we spend wading through spam letters because our name is on an immortalised list somewhere in the heart of the worldwide web.

How to change web hosting providers

There are numerous reasons to change your web hosting supplier, and if you do decide to do so it does tend to be a fairly straight forward procedure.

Placing their website address at the bottom of their business cards, or throwing a “Check out our website” at a passing enquirer is all they really use it for, and the design is often minimalistic and unsupported by an experienced web hosting company.

What is FTP?

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, it is one of the main standards for transferring files from or to one location and another. It retains files in their designated form as opposed to another form of transferring files one way (usually) called HTTP. For HTTP you download data from a server and then your browser software converts it into viewable content. With FTP you can transfer text files, movies, documents, audio files and indeed any other kind of file without opening or viewing it, you can then use your desired application to view the file on your own PC or allow others to download your files from a remote location or even view files via HTTP if you place them on a web server.

Choosing a Windows Server for your Website Hosting

Windows servers are the most used system across the world, accounting for over 80% of all operating systems. So why are Windows dedicated servers so popular for website hosting?

1.    Windows is tried and tested:
Microsoft is one of the biggest corporations in the world, with a huge burden of responsibility. If they don’t resolve a problem quickly, companies, banks and even governments could fail.
