Determining What Kind of Hosting Plan You Need for Your Business Website

InMotion Hosting Blog -

When you’re launching a new website, one of the most important considerations is the hosting provider you will use. But if you don’t speak ‘techie’, the process can be confusing. There are so many different providers, and so many different types of plans, that you may not know what is best. Many business owners, without understanding what they’re doing, just sign up for the best deal – never a great idea.

5 Ideas to Boost Your Website Traffic Fast

HostGator Blog -

The post 5 Ideas to Boost Your Website Traffic Fast appeared first on HostGator Blog. Building your website is only the beginning of your online marketing journey. If you want to get new customers to your site, you need to boost your website traffic. On top of that, you don’t want just anyone coming to your site. You want people truly interested in your services and products. It’s never too early to create a strategy for your online business. Here are 5 ideas to quickly boost your website traffic. 1. Host a Live Webinar People want to know the team behind the products and services they purchase. Hosting a live webinar is an effective way to spark future customers’ interest. The first step is selecting a topic related to your industry. Ryan Robinson, side project aficionado and part-time entrepreneur, explains: “Choose a topic that you’re all interested in and knowledgeable about, and you don’t even need to make it fancy. The best part is that everyone involved will bring some of their own audience, and you can get the attention of people interested in your field.” Then, choose a platform to host your webinar. Once you’ve selected the topic, date, and time, you’ll want to spread the word everywhere about your upcoming webinar. Ask friends and business partners to share a social media post (or two). During your webinar, direct attendees to your website to get additional information. Make sure you repeat the site address multiple times, add the site link to your presentation slide, and type it in the chat for people to click on it immediately. Creating an upbeat, fun webinar will keep your attendees engaged. As a result, they’ll feel more compelled to learn more about your business at your website. Pro Tip: Webinars are just one type of video that boost your website traffic. Get more video ideas for your website here. 2. Host an Online Giveaway Everyone loves being a winner. Give your consumers the spotlight by offering an online giveaway. It will spark brand awareness and lead to a boost in website traffic. A powerful giveaway starts with a cool prize. Don’t feel obligated to give away a new television. However, your prize should be relevant to your business. Let’s say you’re a chef with a blog, and you sell cookbooks and offer on-site cooking classes. Your giveaway prize may be a free cookbook or one free private class. Next, decide how you will execute the giveaway. You can host it on your site with the contest rules and a form for people to fill out. Or you can use a platform, like Gleam (shown below), to encourage people to visit your page to earn an entry. No matter how you implement your giveaway, your objective is to get people to your site. So, always include calls-to-action to your site along the way—-contest rules page, thank you page, and follow-up email. 3. Advertise on Social Media Social interaction remains an important part of marketing and sales, and there’s no exception when it comes to building your online audience. Social media is the spot for consumers to get their news, talk with friends, and learn about new products. For businesses, it’s an opportunity to build brand engagement with customers. To get traffic to your site fast, you’ll want to invest in social media advertising. Even with a small budget, you’ll get noticed by more people matching your audience criteria. Your ad should captivate people’s attention and give them a glimpse of your products. Be bold in your copy and carefully select a photo that tells a vivid story. Home improvement retail company Lowe’s uses Twitter to promote their sponsored posts. The example below shows how they use copy and a photo to motivate followers to create an outdoor oasis with the help of their products. It’s engaging and leads visitors to their site. Crunch the numbers to include social media advertising to your budget. It’ll help you achieve your traffic goals faster. 4. Answer Questions on Forums The Internet has evolved into a marketplace of knowledge. It’s where anyone can find answers to their most pressing questions: “Is Pluto a planet?” “Where’s the nearest Chinese restaurant?” People’s desire for information is good for your business because your product may be the answer to their question. It’s your chance to position your business as a solution. You can get in front of potential visitors by posting responses in online forums, like Quora. In these spaces, people are seeking honest, thoughtful answers to their questions. When participating in these forums, skip the fluff and jargon. Add a link your business when it’s relevant to the question, and only answer questions in your expertise. In the image below, the person offers a detailed response with examples and pictures. She uses a friendly tone and offers a straightforward answer. To drive traffic, it’s not enough to answer one question. Schedule in your strategy to post on forums three to five times a week. Most forums operate on an upvote system, so encourage people to upvote your answer if they find it useful. 5. Team Up with Influencers No one can achieve their goals alone. Successful businesses develop partnerships to expand their operations. Team up with influencers who share your same values and audiences. Search for non-direct competitors in your industry. For instance, your online store may sell only snow boots; so, it would be clever to connect with an influencer who only sells winter coats. You’ll want to define the partnership terms upfront. Will the influencer promote your site on her social media pages? Will the individual add your business logo and link to his homepage? Be as detailed as possible in the contract and get an attorney to review it. Also, remember that influencer partnerships should be genuine. You want to transform influencers into real customers. Teagan West, a contributing writer at Scrunch, says: “It goes without saying that you should do everything in your power to turn influencers into raving fans…When you have some influencers who are raving fans, your momentum will start to build and you’ll be connecting with new people and opportunities in no time!” Make boosting your website traffic a collaborative project. Join forces with influencers to increase your site visitors. Boost Site Traffic, Get More Visitors Don’t feel overwhelmed by the process of getting more website traffic. Do what works best for your business, like an online giveaway or influencer outreach. You’ll have new visitors at your site soon. Supercharge your site traffic with paid search advertising.

How Do I Know What My Hosting Requirements Are?

InMotion Hosting Blog -

Once you have started to look at website hosting and the multitude of plans being offered, you’ll probably have some questions. You may wonder what you need in a host. You don’t want to get a plan that doesn’t fit your site and causes it to be slow and terrible to visit and use. On the other hand, you don’t want to overspend on a plan and have a lot of extras that you don’t need.

Does My Brick-and-Mortar Business Need a Website?

The Blog -

How do people discover your business? Gone are the days when a copy of the bulky, softcover Yellow Pages would bring in the customers. Now, it’s as though your business doesn’t exist if you don’t have a website. People pick up their shiny cellphones and run online searches to find the business that fits their needs instead of flipping through musty old phone books and directories. Recently, I moved. It wasn’t a huge move, but it was far enough away from my old surroundings that I wasn’t sure what businesses existed in my new town. After what felt like years of hauling a never-ending stream of boxes down multiple flights of stairs, I arrived at my new place — and I was starving. I like supporting local businesses, so I located my phone amidst a jumble of papers and used Google to find some nearby restaurants to sate my hunger. What was so special about what I did? Absolutely nothing. In fact, according to SEO Tribunal, Google receives over 63,000 searches per second on any given day. Even a small sliver of that traffic could do wonders for your business.  Your website needs a domain name. We can help. Does having a website guarantee that my business shows up first in search results?  First off, if you don’t have a website you won’t be showing up in any search results. Secondly, your website has to be good. Search engines don’t reward bad websites with better placement in search results.  Creating a good website that performs well and captures customer attention is a lot easier than it used to be with the advent of website builders. Website builders, like ours, help you create a good-looking, sensible website in a short amount of time. They provide a large selection of customizable templates for you to choose from; then, you click on the item you want (photo placeholder, text box, etc.), drag it where you’d like for it to appear on your website, and drop it in place. You can customize those elements with your own wording, photos, videos, and more. Search engines favor websites with good, informative content. If your website isn’t appealing to customers, or doesn’t answer their questions, it won’t appeal to search engines either.  Do I need a website if I don’t sell products or services online? Yes! Not selling products online is no excuse to forego a website. Think of your website as the digital face of your physical location. You always want to put your best face forward because you never know who’ll see it.  Your customers, and potential customers, expect you to have a website as well. If they find you don’t have one, they’ll wonder why that is and could question whether or not you’re a legitimate business. Your website is a goldmine of marketing opportunities. On social media, you can’t control the conversation about your business. People can comment, like, react, or otherwise change your business narrative. But this isn’t the case on your website. On your site, you position your products and services (even if you don’t do e-commerce) exactly as you see fit, and tell your story the way it should be told. You can even derive insights from the actions your visitors take on your site — what are they clicking on? How far down are they scrolling on the page? And so much more! Apply these insights to refine your messaging, your marketing, all the way down to your products and business M.O., if applicable.  If you’d like to continue building a relationship with your site visitors after they’ve left your site, consider email marketing. Email marketing is a small investment of your time for a big return ($38 return for every $1 spent.) You’ll need to include an email marketing sign-up list on your website, but any good email marketing provider will give you premade options you can quickly add to your site.  How do I start creating a website? Good question! It all starts with a great domain name. You can think of your domain name as your website’s unique name and address. It distinguishes your website from all the others out there. Your domain name should reflect your business, and if possible, match your business name. If you can’t find an available domain name to register, consider purchasing a premium domain name to really solidify your brand.  Got your domain name? Good, let’s continue. Plan your website, then create.  It’s a smart idea to plan out how you think your website will be used, what pages should be included, and how to leverage content on your site. What you put on your site should be intentional and serve a purpose, whether that be to inform your customers or drive purchases.  Before creating your website, ask yourself the following questions.  How many people do I expect to visit my website each day?The amount of website traffic you expect to receive will influence what type of web hosting you need. Website hosting is where all the data and files that comprise your website live. It’s also what allows you to publish your website on the internet, thereby allowing people to find and visit it. You know how retail stores have a back room to store inventory for when it’s needed, and also a shop to handle customer foot traffic? Hosting is a lot like that, but digital.What actions do I want people to take on my site?Are you trying to drive purchase volume? Or provide educational content? When you’re creating a website you’re designing an experience for your site visitors, and the actions they take on your site should benefit your business.What should visitors see when they land on my site?Should they be greeted with your sale of the day? Your bright, beautiful face? Or an informative landing page? Again, think about what actions you want your site visitors to take, and about whether or not their first impression of your site will help lead them to that action.Am I providing them with a way to reach me if they have questions?You can provide all the relevant and pertinent information about your business that you want, but someone is still going to have questions. That someone may be your most valuable customer. If they have a question and need to get in touch with you, they should be able to easily and quickly find your contact information. A “Contact Us” page on your site should suffice.  So that’s it then, my brick-and-mortar needs a website? The bottom line is, yes, you really do need a website.  Creating a website for your brick-and-mortar business is a lot quicker and easier than it used to be. You can use a tool like WebsiteBuilder to create a site that reflects your business in the best light possible, and you can do it in less than an afternoon. However, remember that planning is half the battle in website creation. If you go into creating your website with clearly defined goals, you’ll have an easier time deciding where things should go and what information should be displayed. Your website will be the gift that keeps on giving — from visitor insights, to marketing opportunities, to new customers — so what are you waiting for? Get the perfect domain name today. You’re not on your own, is here to help. Need an extra hand when creating a website? Or do you have some lingering questions? We’ve got you covered. Our teams are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Best Reseller Hosting

HostGator Blog -

The post Best Reseller Hosting appeared first on HostGator Blog. Reseller hosting is a very different form of web hosting services than what you’ll typically come across. With every other form of web hosting you’re purchasing hosting that you’re using for your own personal sites. However, with reseller hosting you’re purchasing hosting so that you can sell it to other customers, or even become a hosting provider yourself. With reseller hosting services, you’ll be acting as the middleman between a parent hosting company (like HostGator), and the customers and clients you acquire. As you’ll soon learn, there are all kinds of reasons you’ll want to become a hosting reseller, as well as some unique advantages to doing so. Below we’ll dive into what reseller hosting actually is, why it’s used, the benefits of using reseller hosting services, and finally, how to find the best reseller hosting for you. What is Reseller Hosting? Reseller hosting is a type of web hosting where the account owner purchases hosting and leases this hosting to a third-party. The person who owns the account is known as the reseller. This reseller purchases hosting from a parent hosting company, like HostGator. Typically, you’ll just offer web hosting if you’re a reseller. However, some companies allow you to offer additional products and services too, like domain name management, email services, and more. The additional services you’re able to offer depends on the parent hosting company you’re purchasing hosting from. You can think of being a reseller like renting a big house, then renting out each room to an individual tenant. You pay the owner for the lease of the home, and each of your individual tenants pays you. Now, your friends could just as easily rent their own apartment or home, but they don’t want to deal with the hassle of signing a lease and all that. They’d rather just move in, and pay you every month. Whether you’re a web designer who wants to host client sites, want to start your own website hosting business, or are simply the “tech friend” who’s always down to help with web projects, reseller hosting is a great hosting option worth exploring. Reseller hosting is probably the most common for digital agencies and freelancers who manage client sites. This gives you the ability to offer your clients fully hands-off hosting while setting up your business with an additional long-term income stream. With reseller packages, there are multiple forms of hosting available. You can resell shared hosting, VPS hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated server hosting, and even WordPress hosting. The type of hosting you offer simply depends on what your customers need. Why Offer Reseller Hosting? Reseller hosting is typically used when agencies and freelancers want to add an additional service or manage their client’s hosting while making a profit. When you sign up for reseller hosting you’ll pay a set price for a certain type of hosting and you’ll be allocated a set amount of bandwidth and storage. Since you’re acting as the host you’ll be able to manage server resources, configure accounts, keep track of billing, and a lot more. For example, if you’re managing a dozen client websites that all receive a relatively low volume of traffic, you could put them all on a single shared hosting reseller account. Then, you charge every site a monthly fee for hosting and website maintenance and can make a nice profit. Not only does this add to your bottom line, but you’re offering your clients a ton of value as well. Their hosting is completely taken care of, month in and month out. You can even use reseller hosting to build your very own web hosting company. Of course, it will be difficult to compete with the larger players (especially on price), and you won’t be able to effectively manage every single site on the server at scale. But, if you cater your hosting company towards a single niche you might be able to carve out success in the market and really make money with reseller hosting. How Does Reseller Hosting Work? At the core, reseller hosting is pretty simple. You sign up for a reseller hosting account and you receive a dedicated portion of a server that you’re responsible for managing and billing for. The type of hosting you’re able to offer depends on the parent host you’re purchasing hosting from. You’ll be responsible for bringing on customers, setting up their accounts, partitioning server resources, and providing customer support. The neat thing about reseller packages is that it’s completely white-label. So, every aspect of your hosting can be customized with your unique brand. Your customers and clients will never know that you’re actually renting servers from another parent host. You’ll be able to customize everything from the hosting dashboard, control panel, packages offered, and even support tutorials and walkthroughs. When you purchase reseller hosting you’ll be buying a certain amount of server space. Then, you’ll charge your customer’s a set amount every month for hosting and keep the profits. Advantages of Reseller Hosting Reseller hosting can be very advantageous if you currently run an online agency, or are even looking to create your own web hosting company. Here are some of the biggest advantages you’ll receive once you’re underway as a reseller hosting provider: You can create a recurring revenue stream for your existing business, without that much additional work. You can create a web hosting business from scratch, without the need for the technical infrastructure. You can focus your energy on selling your services and hosting packages, instead of dealing with technical support requests.You can use the included billing software to streamline your accounts. Disadvantages of Reseller Hosting Reseller hosting can offer you and your business a ton of advantages, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Here are some of the biggest drawbacks to reseller hosting that you’ll want to be aware of: You don’t control the servers, so performance, maintenance, and other issues are outside of your control. This is why it’s so important to choose a quality web host!You’ll generally have to price hosting services higher than the parent host to cover your reseller costs.You have to work with their technical support team to resolve issues, which could take longer than direct customer support. A big part of your job as a provider will become support and managing customer relationships. Whether you like it or not, you’re in the hosting business now. Common Reseller Hosting Features The exact specifications of what you’ll receive will differ depending on the reseller host you decide to work with, but here’s a breakdown of the most common features you’ll receive as a provider: Server disk space and bandwidth.The ability to host domain names as well.Being able to brand your own hosting solutions.Access to cPanel and WHM for your client’s control panel.Being able to manage plan resources.Ability to create your own hosting plans custom-tailored to your market or client needs. Additional features like email, monitoring tools, backups, and additional server scripts. What to Look for in a Quality Reseller Host When you’re looking for the best reseller hosting, there are a handful of features that are very important. In fact, the parent host you choose can make or break the success of your reseller hosting business. Here are seven of the most important features you’ll want to keep an eye out for: 1. Quality Customer Support You need to be able to offer solid customer support. Whether you’re offering customer support yourself, or it will be provided by your parent hosting company, it needs to be speedy and helpful. If you don’t want anything to do with managing customer support requests, then make sure you choose a parent hosting company that offers customer support as a server. Some hosting companies will provide technical customer support, while others won’t offer it at all. Since you’re acting as the middleman between your users and the parent hosting company, support will often be your responsibility. 2. Server Bandwidth Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transferred to and from your server. If you have sites on the server that are receiving a high volume of visitors, then you’re going to need higher bandwidth. Make sure you can offer enough server bandwidth to support your customer’s sites, as well as their continued growth. 3. Server RAM RAM refers to your server’s ability to process files. Think about your computer. If you have a low amount of RAM available, then your computer is going to struggle if you have a handful of applications open. The same goes for your hosting server. The more RAM your server has the more files it can serve on an instantaneous basis. 4. Server Storage Disk storage is how much space you have to store website files. This includes everything from the actual files that make up the website (HTML, CSS, PHP, etc.), to any video, image, or audio files. As a reseller, you can set limits on how much disk space each customer will receive, just like how traditional hosts have plan storage limits. Once you hit the limit you’ll need to upgrade to a larger plan. 5. Control Panel cPanel is the industry standard control panel. If you’ve ever used shared hosting solutions in the past, then you’re probably already familiar. Essentially, cPanel and tools like it make it easy to manage your server without having to touch a line of code. It allows beginners to accomplish technical tasks with ease. If you’re going to be offering shared hosting to your clients and customers, then you’ll want to make sure that you can offer cPanel, especially if you’re not going to be involved in the hosting setup process. (HostGator includes the latest cPanel with all of our reseller hosting plans.) 6. Server Speed Being able to offer fast and high performing servers is incredibly important. No one is going to sign up for your reseller hosting service if you offer subpar speeds. Make sure the parent hosting company places a priority on performance. Things like having the proper amount of bandwidth and storage will help, but you’ll also want other tools and features that’ll help push performance even higher. 7. Pricing Finally, since you’re offering hosting as a service, price will come into play. It’ll be hard to keep on paying for reseller hosting if you’re losing money month after month. You’ll have to strike a balance between the price you’re paying and the overall performance and feature set. Depending on how much you’re charging your clients and customers to host their sites with you, there might be some sacrifices that have to be made. However, you might be able to find a parent host that offers long-term discounts, or prices their hosting packages at a level that you can work with. Ideally, you’ll be looking for a host that has features similar to the following: Solid server resources. Plenty of RAM, storage, bandwidth, processors.Bundled billing software. Payment options and processing, domain selling, and more. Bonus features. Regular backups, email accounts, malware scans, and more.Customer support. Included technical support, or full-scale support. Affordable pricing. Hosting costs that allow you to break even sooner, rather than later.

Cloudflare outage caused by bad software deploy

CloudFlare Blog -

This is a short placeholder blog and will be replaced with a full post-mortem and disclosure of what happened today.For about 30 minutes today, visitors to Cloudflare sites received 502 errors caused by a massive spike in CPU utilization on our network. This CPU spike was caused by a bad software deploy that was rolled back. Once rolled back the service returned to normal operation and all domains using Cloudflare returned to normal traffic levels.This was not an attack (as some have speculated) and we are incredibly sorry that this incident occurred. Internal teams are meeting as I write performing a full post-mortem to understand how this occurred and how we prevent this from ever occurring again.
