About Webhosting and Neglecting this Site

Written by Paul Zannucci on 11:08 AM

Okay, I've been really neglectful of this blog. The reason is that I have too many projects going all at once, and unfortunately that's not going to change for at least a month. I'll get here as I can, but it's going to be really tough.

In the meantime, I want to share some important information about shared hosting for any of my readers who either host their own sites or are thinking about it. Most people who use Blogger at some point feel they are ready to go buy some hosting and try their luck with a "real" site, although I personally think that Blogger sites are just fine.

Anyway, hosting your own site can bring a lot of rewards, but if you wander around webmaster sites from time to time, what you find is hoards of people who are unhappy with their shared hosting companies. If you've been a frequent follower of this site, you'll know I've had my own share of problems with this. When we moved American Sentinel to Bluehost, for instance, we were simply kicked off for using too many server resources.

So, anyway, I figure that most folks who are hosting their own sites or who are planning to are probably in the same boat that I was in and really don't know how to get a site to run well on a shared host and all the dangerous things to look for, like being overwhelmed with spam bots. Can you believe that a site I am currently hosting was getting several THOUSAND spam bot hits per day? Spammers were using almost all of my server resources.

But I'm a lot more educated on these things now than I used to be, so I've created a site where I share what I've learned, it's called Hosting Website.

On that site, I've just put up about a 4000 word article (easily navigated with anchor links), that gives you most of what you need to know in order to make your site run smoothly on cheap shared hosting. I look at the major problems and then show you how to fix them. If you are interested, follow the link below:
