Webhosting Management

server_cabinet I’ve been managing website hosting systems since 2000. Webhosting has evolved over the years, just like cell phones. The options for cloud hosting, shared hosting, VPS hosting – again these choices can be daunting. Choosing the right platform is critical. While some sites may be fine on shared hosting, you may have a high traffic site that needs better response time and more horsepower. I can help you make these choices. Another issue with webhosting is finding the right vendor. So many choices – who’s got the most reliability, the best support?
I’m a huge fan of the cPanel brand. cPanel is a software development company that created an excellent enterprise-wide webhosting management system. Their software is what is “under the hood” of all the major webhosting providers like BlueHost, Hostgator, JustHost and several dozen others. You can get cPanel & WHM installed onto Amazon Servers as well.

whm-logo-1 cPanel’s Web Hosting Manager (WHM) is an umbrella hosting manager system allows a webmaster to manage multiple sites, each with their own unique cPanel control panels – all of it from a master control panel. From a business perspective these systems make deployment of sites a breeze that can be delegated to less technical people. From a technical perspective, you get a reliable web hosting management system that covers everything.



System Backups


Every good web developer makes backups!

Backups of your website and its data is one of the most crucial elements to your website. Everybody hates backups! That’s because often, the problems with backup systems are their complexity and configuration. While it is true many webhosting companies have a backup system built in, it is often too cumbersome, backs up unnecessary components, and no ability to just select the data you need, or costs too much. As a web developer, I grew frustrated by the inability to “just get a simple site backup” or just get a backup of a WordPress database before making changes. Most sysadmins will use some favorite scripts, but it’s usually not something you can run from a web browser. A web developer needs something they can click on, launch and get back to development. Web developers don’t want to get bogged down in systems administration.

My system installs in about 5 minutes, self configures and allows you to launch a database or site backup with one click, and walk away. Also, if you have a web developer who you only want working on your site, and you don’t want them into your master control panel, it uses .htaccess for security meaning you can keep its login separate from your main control panel.
