silly project intrnetnt sites optimization with hostgator.com and hostgator review
i have multiple domain – some are production and some are for experiments. They are hosted on different parts of world along with USA. now i want to gather all differnet hosting accounts to USA server for cost cutting as i want to new laptop. so imoved from servage.net, hostmaster.com ,and some small hosts to hostgator.com.
now time to tell something about hostgator.com. i had accounts with many shared hosting providers – all said excellent service for cheap price ( i know .. i know what you will say “cheap $” means cheap service. But not with http://hostgator.com. 600GB of space with 1TB bandwidth for $9.75 ( ya .. costly compare to those $4.95 hosts…” ) but worth it. First thing yo will impress with
php – no safe mode restriction due to phpusexec and you can have own php.ini file.
Next major one shell access – yes they will provide shell access. Amazing speed of servers that you can never expect on shared hosts ( i am with past 1 year …. with 15 mins of downtime yes .. 15 mins in 365 days …) you can host adult sites also. No contracts and clean billing with cc and paypal options.
THE MAJOR feature is live! chat no more hrs of waiting with mails and phones. instant help at any time 24×7 – 365 days. ok .. ok .. give a trial account there and see.
while moving from my german host to hostgator i faced some problems. i have no personal internet due to ISP issue and i can;t do all from key logger/malware filled internet / cybercafes.
so only way is my office netowrk which is only allows firefox to access internet. what do ? i need ftp client to transfer files. and both hosts using different controlpanels. so no ftp cleints and files are 10k + in 10 folders each with 10+k + files. hummm.. i thought that evey desktop application should be online version 🙂 so i am searched for web based ftp client which support site to site transfers with $0 … At last i got it …. nttp://net2ftp.com wonderful free script .
You can copy files from one ftp server to other server online – no plugins need to install it is php based application. so i downloaded and installed in my site… install is nothing but single clik.
ok accessed first time using browser – excellent user interface and ton of feature. you can download entire files in .zip , you can upload files using java or flash uploader.
many many ….. really all these features are $0 costs to you thanks to net2ftp.
at last i completed transfer files from german host to hostgator.com …. so earlier i hosted database on one host,files on one host so now all hostgator.com and $$ saved.
