Revenues are equal to 44% more than in 2014 and staying at the data at least once a day 1.04 billion people used Facebook for different reasons.
The increase is undoubtedly due to the publicity that has long allowed Facebook new revenue but alsothe ability to install new applications.

Importance of web hosting to business http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1858/importance-of-web-hosting-to-business/ http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1858/importance-of-web-hosting-to-business/#respond Thu, 25 Jul 2013 10:23:07 +0000 http://www.internetblog.org.uk/?p=1858 serversThe world of business is very ruthless and unfair in some cases. It is a platform where only the mighty survive and those who cannot handle such pressure are eaten alive so to speak. Enter the web and the different businesses are given a platform on which they can be equal despite the fact that the bank balances vary. Web hosting has sort of leveled the business platform for both the giant businesses and the small and medium sized companies.

Running your website can be a very big task especially if you do not have the knowhow to go about it. In most cases, the people who create their own websites are just trying to save on some money. However, with the web hosting services that are now available, it is now possible for them operate on virtually the same plane as the larger companies with more cash to spill. The web hosting services not only offer administration and proper administration of the website but also provide an opportunity to optimize the website and make it more visible on the World Wide Web.

These are centres that take charge of the data and hardware that an organization has and monitor them to ensure that they are always performing at optimal levels. This is especially a normal practice within the financial sector in which small changes in the system and errors can lead to very heavy losses on their side. It is an outsourcing process meant to protect the firm from unnecessary risks.

How to choose the right website builder and site maker http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1845/how-to-choose-the-right-website-builder-and-site-maker/ http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1845/how-to-choose-the-right-website-builder-and-site-maker/#respond Wed, 26 Jun 2013 13:28:30 +0000 http://www.internetblog.org.uk/?p=1845 sitemaker-5x-29.1We have already discussed the importance of the website builder to a business. As such, it is an open secret so to speak that every business requires the website builder. The type of web builder that you choose plays a big role in determining how effective the process is going to be. Any website builder has to have one thing that is sacred, so to speak, user friendliness. Any website that is not friendly to use will scare off any potential clients and users.

User friendliness on the website is something that a website builder ought to be on the lookout for. Good website builders usually allow the website developer to a well run and easy to use website with many functions. The ease of use has to apply to not only the clients but also the administrator to make it easy for them to communicate with their clientele. The other thing that good website builders have done is to ensure that they can be used by those people who do not have IT knowledge. Not everyone can understand html language and all the technical lingua that developing a website comes with. However, if these commands are put in a way that is understandable by the normal person, then it becomes much easier to use.

Add this to the fact that it saves on time and money to build your own website and you have the winning combination and the right shot in the arm for your business.

Colocation sever security http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1844/colocation-sever-security/ http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1844/colocation-sever-security/#respond Fri, 21 Jun 2013 13:17:42 +0000 http://www.internetblog.org.uk/?p=1844 physical-serversCollocation is the movement of the servers from an in house location usually to a much safer location that is marked with specialized environment for the servers. Collocation sites usually offer the users with an environment that features high-security features such as cameras, fire detection and extinguishing devices. Some of them also provide multiple connection feeds, filtered power and backup power generators as well as other items in order to ensure there is high-availability. This is in essence a mandatory requirement for all Web-based, virtual businesses.

What are the benefits of collocation?

The first benefit that you come across when the servers have been collocated is the fact that the data a company has is stored safely away from prying hackers and other unauthorized access. In addition, you are able to get more hits on the website without paying for the bandwidth. This in essence means that you get more bandwidth for free. The fact that the collocation provider takes over the management of the server means that you are able to better concentrate on the core part of your business. Add this to the fact that you will now be able to share the bandwidth with the server collocation provider. Speaking from a purely business perspective, this one of the fastest ways to cut the operational costs of having a server in your location. You will also set yourself aside from threats to the servers such as power outages and break ins, which pose security risks to the data you have.

What to do when shutting down a server! http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1842/what-to-do-when-shutting-down-a-server/ http://www.internetblog.org.uk/post/1842/what-to-do-when-shutting-down-a-server/#respond Fri, 07 Jun 2013 14:00:28 +0000 http://www.internetblog.org.uk/?p=1842 serversClosing down a server can be a smooth process or one of the most hectic things an individual can encounter. To start with, the servers hold the data that a company relies on and as such, cannot just be abandoned since the company risks letting that data fall into the wrong hands. As such, there are a number of things that you need to look at when you are shutting down the server to ensure that the whole process is smooth.

The first thing that you need to do is ensure that you back up all the information that is in the servers. This information is usually sensitive and even when it is outdated, it may be needed at some future date. This allows you the opportunity to continue using the data well after the servers have been decommissioned. While closing down the server, it is important to inform the clients who will be affected and keep the data just in case they need the information as well.

Additionally, you should announce the shut down in advance and in case you are migrating, ensure that the new set up is functional before pulling the plug on the server. This allows for a rather smooth transitional. You can also provide a hotline for your customers to allow them to call in and ask for direction in case they come across any other problems. Usually, you can provide an alternative hosting service that the clients should use.

For instance, Facebook is a multibillion dollar company that is hosted in the USA. However, it has a worldwide presence even in countries with very strict social networking laws.

As such, you can begin to understand the way e-commerce and web design are inter related. The success of one, often the website, almost always leads to more business.
