3 important research was done and we rated Fatcow as below. Discover why we gave them the web host rating like below.

Hosting costs

First, let us compare the hosting costs at Fatcow and Webfaction. The cheaper choice for hosting a straight forward WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, OSCommerce, X-Cart or Zencart is most definitely Fatcow. If you just need to have one website using one domain, require a reasonable amount of diskspace and visits-per-day, and want a few email accounts, then Fatcow, priced from $ 3.67 per month is easily the winner. If you absolutely require an unlimited domains hosting plan and require high CPU usage, then you need to look further into each web hosting features and the TOS.

Please note that the above conclusion is only true if we compared the cost for one year prepayment. Do not get sucked by the unbelievably low prices advertised by the hosting companies or by other dishonest web hosting review sites. Some low prices displayed are for payment periods that are too long which makes the customer uneasy. If you ask us, we found that companies go bust, got bought over, or simply did not perform well as expected. Why risk your hard-earned money because money paid to these companies will not be easy to get back – trust us. Based on our research, yearly hosting payment is the optimal length.

Top 6 Most Anticipated Video Games Of 2015

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting Reviews

2014 brought us Dragon Age: Inquisition, Tales from the Borderlands and the Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, just to mention a few. In terms of video games, thanks to apparition of new high-end consoles, 2014 proved to be a success. But as the year is coming to a close, we can already look forward to what will hit the shelves in 2015. The good news is that no platform will be left out – not even the home computer, which has seen a decline in popularity in the last 5 years. Most of the upcoming releases will be available both for consoles and for PCs and from what we’ve seen so far, some will stretch the hardware of both systems to the max – the Xbox One, the Playstation 4, the PC graphics cards and processors and even the Wii U, will have the chance to show their true colors.

1) Mortal Kombat X

1

There is no such thing as too many Mortal Kombat games. The series is hitting the big 10 next year and everything seems to indicate there will be a gory anniversary…with the gore in the game’s levels, of course. Not only will the über-famous FATALITIES be back, in an innovative and improved gameplay, but there will be unique abilities to choose from for every fighter and the chance to interact with the environment.

2) The Order: 1886

2

The Order: 1886 instantly caught our eye with the 36-minute gameplay footage that was released so far. While on the surface, it seems to be your average action-adventure, the graphics and overall feel seem to stand out. A title exclusively for the PlayStation 4, it is a fictional story set in London, during a time when monsters were attacking the population. You will be part of an order of knights meant to protect them from those vicious creatures. London has never felt more gothic and atmospheric and we can only hope that the actual game will live up to the hype.

3) Batman: Arkham Knight

3

Origins was a bit of a letdown in the excellent Batman Arkham series. There was not much going on with the story and the gameplay brought nothing new. But there is a powerful reason why Arkham Knight is still so anticipated: Rocksteady Studios. Rocksteady is the original developer of the series and many blame the dullness of Arkham Origins on their lack of involvement. Arkham Knight will showcase a Batman looking like a war machine and the return of the Scarecrow and his allies and we can’t wait to see Batman face him once more, especially since Scarecrow was one of the best characters present in Arkham Asylum.

 

4) The Legend Of Zelda Wii U

 4

We weren’t joking when we said there was an eagerly-anticipated title for the Wii U as well. It’s The Legend of Zelda, of course –  one of the most acclaimed video game series. This new installment promises a large, open world environment, similar to those that were present in the first 2D games. Puzzles will also be revamped, with a complexity going beyond moving blocks to open doors. Suddenly, it feels good to own a Wii U.

 5) Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

5

The Phantom Pain promises a groundbreaking gameplay, which will raise the bar high for the so-called next-gen games. Metal Gear Solid has always been a solid (excuse the pun!) series, but from what we’ve seen, they might deliver their best installment yet. Graphics look amazing, with smooth animation, multiple vehicles able to be operated and an open-world impressive in size. Don’t be surprised if this action stealth game will win all the awards in 2015.

6) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

6

CD Projekt RED is a developer that throughout the years demonstrated that it can learn from its own mistakes and the proof is in the Witcher series, with each installment being better than the previous one. While the first Witcher had a great storyline, but the gameplay was a bit overwhelming, the second one improved it and added some wonderful graphics. Now here comes the third one, which looks like a sum of the best parts. Beautiful, complex and gripping, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has not only the potential of becoming the best RPG of the year, but quite possibly of all time.

Holiday Security Concerns Good for Small Businesses and Web Hosts

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting

As 2014 ends and the new year begins, business and technology experts are looking at online business trends. A number of high-profile security breaches have led to significant shifts in consumer behavior, especially when it comes to online shopping and the types of businesses that they purchase from. A recent survey shows that many online consumers are being driven to small businesses by security concerns—but how will this affect those businesses, their digital presences, and their web hosts?

Consumer Study

The survey in question was taken by Web.com in order to determine how online security breaches would affect holiday shopping. The study was conducted online from September 19th to the 26th of 2014. 3,039 respondents were interviewed, 1,003 of which were small businesspeople and 2,036 of which were consumers. The margin of error was 1.5%.

Security Concerns

One of the most relevant results of the study is that many consumers are losing their trust in the security of larger companies. 69% of consumers were worried about their privacy and security while shopping online this year, and nearly 30% were more concerned about big businesses than they were about small ones. Nearly two-thirds of consumers were influenced to shop online more with small businesses this year.

Why is this? Although bigger businesses usually make an effort to keep customer data secure, they are also targeted much more often than other entities because they are such large targets. A big box store often collects the data of thousands of customers, which means that if a hacker can break into their system then they’ve hit the metaphorical jackpot. This fear is borne out by news headlines, which report another major breach every few months. Target was hacked during the holiday season of 2013, and Neiman Marcus announced a security breach the following January. Home Depot was targeted in the spring, Staples was attacked over the summer, and Kmart fell prey in the fall. Most recently, Sony has suffered a number of cyber-attacks in the past few weeks. It’s no surprise that so many Americans mistrust the security of major retailers.

Small Business Benefits

So what alternative do consumers have? Many are turning to small businesses, which offer less of a target to hackers and are thus considered to be more secure. In the survey, 43% of consumers reported that they were likely to change their shopping behavior and another 32% said that it was possible they would change. 65% were somewhat or highly influenced to increase their online shopping (which is understandable, since many of the security breaches involved physical brick-and-mortar stores). Consumers were more than twice as likely to be worried about their security at big businesses then they were at small ones, and 41% of customers were planning to shop mainly at small businesses. Although security breaches are bad news for large companies, they are good news for small ones, since cyber-attacks drive consumers towards smaller stores.

Service Adaptation

Of course, many of these customers expect the same level of service that they received at big businesses to be present at the small ones. Customers are expecting mobile options and professional services from small business websites, and many of these sites are complying. 60% of customers rated the professionalism of small business sites highly, and those that are not well-designed are likely to fall behind.

Web Host Benefits

Although this move toward small business online shopping is good news for local companies, it’s also good news for web hosting services. A whopping 78% of consumers who were going to shop at small businesses planned to shop online, which means that traffic to these sites is going to increase for 2015. The potential for financial gain is significant as long as companies respond correctly.

Trend Predictions

Will this trend continue? Customers will always be driven towards more secure sites, but whether small businesses can remain secure is an open question. Companies that benefit from cyber-attacks on larger retailers can grow themselves and become targets for hackers. In order to avoid falling prey to the same attacks as these big companies have, smaller businesses should be making improvements right now to ensure that their own sites are safe and convenient for customers.

Traffic Changes

First of all, websites should be prepared for the increased traffic. If a sudden influx of visitors crashes a business’s site, then the company will lose money while it’s down and can potentially alienate customers. As mobile devices become more and more common and shopping on these devices increases, small businesses and web hosting services need to be prepared to tailor the site so that it can handle the influx.

Security Adaptations

Also, small business websites absolutely must be secure. Since privacy and security concerns are currently driving customers to smaller retailers, they will also be one of the things that keep them there. Many consumers will bolt as soon as they feel unsafe. Also, a security breach can significantly cost a company and may even end up putting them out of business. This is why enhanced security features are absolutely essential. Some of the most important changes to make are:

  • Training employees on how to avoid threats
  • Keeping software completely up to date
  • Secure encryption of sensitive information
  • Ensuring that physical hardware is protected
  • Using strong passwords
  • Installing antimalware software

Storage Space

Finally, small businesses should ensure that they have sufficient storage space to handle increased online traffic. Without enough storage, a website might run slowly or crash altogether, which can seriously hurt a company’s sales and bottom line. Web hosts should take step to ensure that their clients have adequate space for their websites.

During the holiday shopping season, convenience is drawing many consumers to online shopping, while security and privacy concerns are driving more and more of these shoppers to the websites of small businesses. As the Web.com survey shows, smaller retailers can expect an increase in sales (and their web hosts can expect an increase in traffic) due to cyber-attacks. If these businesses are unable to offer a secure shopping experience, however, they’ll eventually lose customers just like bigger retailers did. To take full advantage of this opportunity, small businesses and their web hosts should take steps to ensure that their websites are up for the challenge—companies that are prepared have nothing to fear.
