Now accepting proposals for GSoC 2011

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Phpmyadmin

Now that the official GSoC site is accepting student proposals, students should post their proposals to http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc2011/phpmyadmin for them to be officially examined.

In the past, a proposal could be edited by the student after submission
and I believe it’s still the case. Mentors will interact with students
in private to ask clarifications about their proposals.

The Freedom and Flexibility of Colocation Hosting

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting

Online business owners usually require various services to keep their endeavors operating smoothly and supply the tools and resources needed to continually create new websites and online business opportunities. Web hosting is such a service, as it is the first thing that is needed by every webmaster. In essence, you need access to the web server if you want to host a website on the World Wide Web. However, some people choose not to utilize a conventional web hosting plan, and instead purchase their own private web server. Once the server is purchased it must be stored in a safe area that has an ideal environment for server operation, which is low in dust, has a continually maintained temperature/humidity index, and maintains constant airflow to the server at all times. Web server owners also need to consider the safety of the server in terms of vandalism, theft, and other forms of hardware damage. Fortunately, colocation hosting is a web server storage service that keeps your web server safe all times.

What Is Included with a Colocation Web Hosting Plan?

In essence, a colocation hosting plan is simply a service that allows you to store your private Web server in a data center that is connected to the Internet via multiple high-speed connections. Thus, the colocation hosting plan you will receive access to state-of-the-art facilities, a fully customized private server rack for your Web server’s, multiple connections to the Internet, automatic server backups and redundancy, and (with some more comprehensive plans) technical support. All collocation web hosting plans include 24-hour security, and the facilities are protected by both digital surveillance and state-of-the-art fire extinguisher systems. Without a co-location hosting plan you be forced to store your private Web server in your home, office, or in a storage space (none of which are an ideal location for an operating Web server).

What Are the Advantages of Colocation Hosting?

The main advantages colocation hosting is the safety and stability it provides for your Web server, giving you access to facilities and stability that would otherwise be unobtainable without spending millions of dollars. For a nominal monthly fee you’ll receive full support from trained technical staff, and your Web server will be stored in environmentally controlled server rooms. Many colocation hosting providers also ensure the web hosting equipment, so that if your Web server is damaged in any way while it is being stored at the facility it will be replaced immediately. Colocation hosting providers also make automatic backups of your entire Web server on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, in order to provide complete redundancy that will ensure your websites are online at all times.

Freedom and Flexibility of a Colocation Hosting Plan

Perhaps the most appealing advantages of colocation hosting is the ability to do whatever you would like that your web server in terms of software and hardware configurations. Regardless of how many web servers you own, or what type of operating system you prefer to use, you’ll be able to do it all collocation hosting, as you are not forfeiting your ownership of the web server. By having complete control over what your web server you can eliminate many of the conventional limitations and restrictions placed on bandwidth, disk space, databases, and other aspects of server expansion.

In return of the services, you need to pay a monthly fee amount. This fee depends on services that you take along with the web hosting plan.

Domain investing: Liquidity and cost control are key to survival

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Domain Names & DNS

Business costs or expenses and liquidity do matter in every business. In every brick and mortar business, there is usually the prospect of tying capital in the form of slow moving inventory. Think of a car dealership that has purchased 10 cars each worth USD$ 30k which equal to USD$ 300k in total committed capital. Depending on the size of the car dealership, that might be a significant dough tied in car inventory. If the business owner has borrowed a loan of $ 300k at a simple interest of 5% p.a. then he still has to  generate sales volume to settle the outstanding borrowing interest expense of $ 15k plus principal per annum. In order to maintain sufficient liquidity or cashflow, the dealership needs to design an aggressive marketing campaign to better it chances of survival. This is another expense in the form of marketing. I will assume that the owners of the car dealership were smart enough to do due diligence and determine market demand for the cars (not sure what model) before investing $ 300k capital. If the marketplace doesn’t respond positively to the dealership’s marketing campaign, this could spell doom for the business. Now back to domain names. As every internet marketer scrambles for their share of the few advertising dollars on offer, it is becoming apparent that certain groups are winning while others lose. It is difficult to say whether domainers and SEOs are losing more than web developers. Let us take domainers for example. I think domainers with relatively large domain portfolios worry about annual renewal fees. If a domain name does not pay its cost, then its makes no business sense to keep it. If you have a high quality gTLD (CNO) type-in traffic domain portfolio build many years ago chances are that your domains cover their annual costs. However, for speculators or domain investors whose acquisition strategy could be driven by brandability and keyword quality, then circumstances might be a bit complicated. Domain investors should keep a close eye on their cashflows. This could be a challenge especially when you they have to rely on a lucky deal/sale every blue moon. In order to survive, then I would think that domain investors should focus on quality not quantity. For instance for every 5 domains sold for say $ 2k each make sure that you invest $ 6k in one quality name and keep the other $ 4k in the bank for a rainy day. Do not follow the crowd in your investment strategy – do your homework and due diligence! For example, ICANN is just about to allow registration of hundreds of thousands of new gTLDs (.brand, .generic, .communities). This will have serious implications on type-in traffic (domainers prepare for it).  Any smart domain investor would not waste money in some of these extensions without a clear exit strategy. In the meantime, you should not think that domain flipping will last forever. Learn SEO and develop one of your best keyword domain names into a sustainable business. I know it is easier said than done – let us go back to work. Good luck!
