Why You Need To Go With Good Server Hosting Services For Your Business


When it comes to your business effectiveness, you want to make sure you go with good server hosting services in order to beat the competition. If you don't choose the optimal host server, you could end up with delays and other frustrations which can add a lot of stress to your workday. Spend some time looking for the right company so you don't run into a lot of issues. With the right company, you can have a great server that doesn't break down on a regular basis.

What A Reliable Server Hosting Services Company Should Have

A good company will have people who respond to issues right away, will be able to fix any problems that come up and will have good customer service. Look for a good server hosting services company that can provide you all of these things.

Having to wait on a company to come fix something you need to work is frustrating. Try to think of things you can do when your computers are offline. Hopefully, you won't have too much time where you can't go online because of your host server but if it happens then you will be prepared.

You want a company that will respond when you call them. You don't want to be put on hold for a long time or have to call back because the number is busy. If you have a problem you want a quick response. Having your server go down can make it hard to work so you want it to be back up and running as soon as possible.

When you call the server hosting services company for help you want to be treated with good customer service. You don't want to feel like you are bothering them. If that is the case it will be awkward to ask them for help and it would be better to go with a better company that you enjoy talking with. A good company will hire kind people for customer service that can help connect you to the right person and help you fix your problem.

The Importance Of Having A Reliable Host Server

It is also important that the company you go with offers a host server service that works. Sometimes you can't plan for every situation but if your server is always going down it is probably time to switch to a new company. That would let you know that something isn't working right with your current company and you need to spend your money somewhere else.

Spend some time looking into the different companies in your area. Ask other people who they use and find out who has a good reputation. Then decide who would be best for your business. You want to spend the time to do this so your business can run smoothly. Once you find the right server hosting services company, make sure you go over what you are expecting from them. They will let you know what they can offer you and then you will agree on a price for the host server. Make sure you know who to call if you have an issue and make plans for the day they come to get everything set up in your office.

What ZeroLag VPS Will Do For You

ZeroLag VPS

Virtual private servers are an ideal hosting solution if you need more space, bandwidth, and server resources than what a typical shared hosting account can provide, but don't want to commit to the price or contract involved with a dedicated server. A VPS is ideal for large-traffic blogs and forums, as well as tech sites that may see a lot of traffic during the holiday shopping season. Plus, a VPS often has the power to run more scripts than a shared server, and you'll have more options at your disposal for managing your account.

What ZeroLag VPS Will Do For You includes setting you up on a virtual private server that meets your needs, and making sure that technical support is always available. For the most part, so long as a site isn't suddenly taken down due to a security breach, a malfunctioning script, or a problem with the server itself, a VPS will run smoothly and on a mostly automated basis. But if there are problems, you should know that you can contact your host at any time of the day or night, and you can expect a response within 24 hours, but often much, much sooner than that.

Choosing best server OS: Windows server Vs Linux server

Is Windows or Linux server the best? Decades ago both OS were leveling each other. Later everyone moved on to Windows as their stable OS. Novell’s version of Linux proved to be the best competitor’s for Windows 8.

Choosing a sever always depends upon the type of usage a computer is used be it personal or business. However each server OS has its own pros and cons. Let me list out to you.
Versions of OS

Windows OS: 

The commonly used windows server OS versions are shown in the following.

(i) Windows Server 2012 R2 (2013)

(ii)Windows Multipoint Server (2012)

(iii) Windows Server 2012

(iv)Windows Multipoint Server (2011)

(v) Windows Home Server 2011

(vi) Windows Multipoint Server (2010)
(vii) Windows Server 2008 R2

(viii) Windows Home server (2007)

(ix) Windows Server 2008

(x) Windows Server 2003

(xi) Windows 2000

(xii) Windows NT 4.0

(xiii) Windows NT 3.5.1

(xiv) Windows NT 3.5

(xv) Windows NT 3.1

Most of this windows server OS comes out with different versions such as Service pack 1, Service pack 2 and Service pack 3. Those versions are also called as Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition and Data center Edition.

Linux OS: 

The Top 10 Linux server OS that is easy to use are shown below.

(i) Ubuntu

(ii) Red Hat

(iii) SUSE

(iv) Mandriva
(v) Xandros

(vi) Slackware

(vii) Debian

(viii) Vyatta

(ix) CentOS

(x) Unbreakable Linux

Now moving on to Linux, Linux OS has less disadvantages compared to windows.

Linux OS’s are the best suited for business organizations. Even organizations such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft organizations use the open source Linux for their purpose as they can venture freely with that type of environment.

Hope you got a clear idea about choosing a server OS.

The Five Best Business Servers of 2013

Looking for a business server to pump up your storage capacity? Start with this list of five. You’ll find servers suited to small business use, medium business use and rack servers for expanding business use.

Buffalo Terastation Pro
The Terastation pro is something of an oddity – a small networked server that costs nearly as much as a full blown rack option. For a small to medium sized business that knows it’s on the up, though, the Terastation offers a lot of oomph in a sensibly sized package. It’s got loads of hot swap storage, and can support all sorts of RAID. Reading and writing speeds are outstanding and it has four different file sharing setups. Compatible with Time Machine, and capable of supporting BitTorrent, the Buffalo is a strong contender for mini server of the year.

Netgear ReadyNAS Duo
It looks like an old school stereo, and it works like a dream. The ReadyNAS is able to power six drives, which slot in behind the door grille – making the whole thing a sort of tiny rack storage unit. Supports USB 3.0 and 2.0, and with instant backup from the unit to an external USB disk. The ReadyNAS also helps with its own installation, by employing RAIDar from a network PC. One of the key selling points for the unit is its ability to use open sourced add ons, which have been created by other Netgear users. It’s relatively cheap, too.

HP Proliant G7 Server
The HP Proliant is Hewlett Packard’s standard midrange server. It’s designed to support small to medium sized businesses with a limited knowledge of IT systems – so it’s simple, robust and easy to use. The downside of this configuration is its limited capabilities – but then if you have the storage needs or the knowhow for something with more bells and whistles, you won’t be using the Proliant G7 in the first place.

Dell PowerEdge T410
Dell’s entry level tower server is designed for small businesses that don’t have the room for a dedicated server installation. It’s a storage heavy hitter, which supports six cold swap drive units as standard. You can also add in extra hot swap drive space if you need to. The PowerEdge T410 delivers RAID as well. If you’re buying on a budget, opt for the baseline model, which has an LED diagnostics and monitoring pane. If you want to have a couple more sophisticated touches, you can choose the LCD diagnostic panel instead.

IBM System x3650 M4
IBM’s M4 System server is the latest incarnation of the company’s long standing range of respected business servers. It’s designed to take double CPUs, a bunch of PCI Express add-ins and 24 DDR3 DIMMs. Like most IBM products at this level, the IBM System x3650 M4 is designed to give as much flexibility as possible, and can be scaled up as a business grows thanks to its maximum storage load of 18TB. The power used by the M4, even when running flat out, is still well within acceptable ranges. G2Digital can help you set up your server room: see what we offer here.
