Today's window hosting Article

News about window hosting

Mr. Spandaw added, ”That’s why we are already expanding now. We do not want to run the risk of trouble in buying port capacity, because this would mean that we would be unable to expand the hosting network in time. We promised our clients that we will always have twice as much hosting capacity as they consume in bandwidth, and we want to continue making good on our promise. Clients must be able to count on it, because with this philosophy, we offered them an extremely scaleable hosting solution.”

Zoho Doubles Customer Count in 5 Months, Racing Google Apps to 1 Million User Mark

Mon, 05 Mar 2007 17:20:00 -0400

When I first met Raju Vegesna at the Office 2.0 conference last October, Zoho had just passed the 100,000 user mark. Less than 5 months later, Raju says they're closing in on 200,000.

While Nielsen/NetRating (PDF) claims that Google has a 92% share of the web-based productivity apps market, Raju points out that Zoho and ThinkFree together attract as many unique visitors as Google Docs and Spreadsheet. (See Ismael Ghalimi's elaboration on the user count discrepancy.) 432,156 users visited Google Docs last December; that's 3% fewer than in October. Zoho, on the other hand, has undergone rapid growth (as CEO Sridhar Vembu puts it, "we try harder") - and hopes to beat Google to the 1 million user goal.

By the way, when Raju and I were introduced, a colleague of his described him as Zoho's PR strategist. I just found out that in addition to attracting favorable coverage in every possible media outlet, he was also in charge of company's data center infrastructure. (Raju recently managed to offload this responsibility.) He insists it wasn't as much work as it sounds, because Zoho's apps run on a self-healing grid that's attached to a pool of standby servers. If any application server dies, the appropriate code will automatically be deployed on one of the standby machines. The failed hardware can be swapped out whenever someone has time. As for customer data, everything is replicated three times and backed up offsite.

(Zoho's Rackable servers are colo-ed at Savvis and Equinix. They're in the process of migrating from 32 bit to 64 bit machines with dual core Intel Woodcrest processors and 8 to 16 GB of RAM. The new machines arrived last week, but won't be deployed until late March. As Google's recent hard drive study shows, a longer burn-in period can help weed out faulty hardware.)

Zoho's HR processes are similarly efficient. Adventnet, Zoho's parent company, has 600 employees (and counting). Whenever a new Zoho product is conceived, a dedicated team of 2-6 developers is allocated to the project. Having rapid access to talent gives Zoho a tremendous competitive advantage. Forget Google Office; the loooong list of ideas and partnerships that Zoho's in the process of implementing might coalesce into Zoho Life: single sign on access to an ever growing suite of fully integrated web apps that do... everything.

Keep an eye on Zoho; they're setting the standards for delivering a seamless SaaS experience. And sign up for an account if you don't already have one. Lastly, stay tuned. They've got some big announcements on the way.

Traditionally the Adsense program has helped numerous webmasters pay their hosting fees. Increasingly the same program is responsible for helping many web hosts survive in the business and enables them to keep their heads above water even as they wait to sign up hosting clients.

Ix web hosting data centre

Sat, 10 May 2008 19:09:09 +0000
Previous month, we saw ixwebhosting upgraded their data centre and moved to a new location. During the month of april, there was some service interruption during the migration. But ix hosting technical team managed to migrate the servers and websites in shorter time than scheduled. Which mean the service interruption is far less than expected.
Currently, ...]

Now I noticed you also mentioned something about Google.� Here recently Google has said their AdSense program will be looking for domains that are “kiting” and drop these domains from being able to put AdSense ads up on those domains.� Hopefully by ending the chance to earn a buck - they hope to curb the bad guys from trying the domain kiting all together.

Here are just a few topics from this week’s episode of the Web Hosting Show.
