RE: Security form web access

In principle it will always be the same structure, the security extras will mainly be jquery / php checks / validations ... you can in the first instance ask for secure passwords, as you have seen in many sites: the password must contain 1 numeral, 1 uppercase and a length of at least 8 characters ....

RE: Does your host comply with DMCA notices?

If your host company does not honor DMCA, then I would worry what other illegal activities they are allowing from other members. What your host company allows could affect your own website security, especially if they are letting others upload malicious software or scripts that could breach security...

RE: How do I move a domain to cloud hosting?

I would recommend transferring your domain when you sign up because if you wait, then you will have to change the DNS/name servers on your own. Ask your hosting company for help or tutorials if you need to know more as their procedure may differ from what you are accustomed to now.

RE: Does it matter if your hosting is located in your country?

It only matters where your traffic is coming from. So for instance, if most of your traffic is in the UK or over seas, then you would want to get a host there rather than in the states. However, if you have cloud based hosting, they are likely to have servers all over the world, so it won't really m...

RE: What are some acceptable uses of cloud hosting?

As everyone else said, you could not use the cloud for illegal activities or you could be both criminally and civilly liable. And, it's not so hard to be caught when dealing over the internet, no matter how well you think you are protected. A number of things might be prohibited when it comes to onl...

RE: How do you attract the noobie webmaster?

I own a server at home, so why do I need dedicated servers?

Let's say that I already own a server at home. So then why would I need to buy dedicated hosting from another provider? What benefit would this have for me?

RE: Why is managed hosting the ideal solutions for your business?

Managed hosting is more for the less experienced webmaster or business owner who might want all the advantages of a dedicated server but not want the hassle of having to perform updates or maintenance on their own. The managed hosting company will upgrade scripts, web apps or open source software, a...
