    Ben Matthew Reyes – Email: ben@createiptv.com Skype: benreyes
  • 3. Who the f*** is this guy?
    • Established a small web hosting business in late 2003 using pocket money - CircleHosting.net (Sold 2006)

  • 4. Story of the “kiddy” web host
    • CircleHosting.net established by 3 teens. Edward Whitely (14), Carl Meredith (16), Ben Reyes(15)
    • CircleHosting had over 100+ current customers
    • Started with a Resellers account
  • 5.
    • Don’t just avoid web hosts run by teen. You’ll have to watch out for fly-by-night hosts run by “adults”.
  • 6. Story of 5,000 web hosts left scared
    • 2004 Donna Mercer (angelnetworkz.net)
    • Not a “Kiddy-Host”
    • Did not pay Managed.com $70,000 rental costs
    • Affected many web hosters small and mid-sized. Many reputable compaines. (Avoid at all costs)
    • Read more back story on http://whoisdonnamercer.blogspot.com
    Ben Matthew Reyes – Email: ben@createiptv.com Skype: benreyes
  • 7. Types: Shared Hosting
    • Your “Bog” standard hosting package
    • Sites shared with many on one or more servers
    • Advantages: Low-Cost, Maintenance not needed
    • Disadvantages: No root access, reliability, overcrowding
  • 8. Types: Dedicated/Co-Lo
    • Renting your own server/
    • Advantages: Low cost to move into server
    • Disadvantages: Setup Costs for Colo, Site down? You fix it… (Unmanaged server)
  • 9. Server Rental: Ben Recommends
    • - SoftLayer.com ($159-$500 PM)
    • LayeredTech.com ($75-$300 PM)
    • ThePlanet.com
    • Others used in the past:
    • Managed.com
    • Gnax.net (backups)
  • 10. Types: Virtual Dedicated Servers
    • Also known as Virtual Private Servers
    • Root access to a virtual server
    • Allocated resources
    • Lower costs than a rented server
    • Great for development & testing
    • Most popular virtual tech in hosting is SWsoft: Virtuozzo
    • Ben Recommends: Servint.net
    Ben Matthew Reyes – Email: ben@createiptv.com Skype: benreyes
  • 11. Types: Grid & Clustered
    • Watch out for “grid” hosts but are in fact clustered fail-over hosts (Media Temple’s 100GB space 1TB bandwith $20 pm)
    • Keep an eye out for 3Tera AppLogic Grid technology for web Apps
    Ben Matthew Reyes – Email: ben@createiptv.com Skype: benreyes
    • LayeredTech.com has started to
    • Provide a version of this using AppLogic
  • 12. Control Panels Ben Matthew Reyes – Email: ben@createiptv.com Skype: benreyes
    • Why?: Easier to transfer from server to server, host to host.
    • No need to mess with service installs each time
    • Resell hosting and create shared accounts
    • I recommend using a host or server that uses cPanel or Plesk as they are the most popular used by web hosting compaines
