Bitcoin Accepting Web Host Redefines The Market By Offering New Features That Bundle Performance and Privacy

April 1, 2014 by · Comments Off on Bitcoin Accepting Web Host Redefines The Market By Offering New Features That Bundle Performance and Privacy 

bitcoinwebhostingCheyenne, WYBitcoinWebHosting.net, a company that has led the way in hosting solutions for the Bitcoin community, has completely rebranded their site and announced new plans, new features, and a string of services that aim to blend privacy and performance into one straightforward solution.

“Since we opened our doors we have been constantly working on expanding our network, capabilities, infrastructure and product line,” says Robert Lons, CEO and co-founder of BitcoinWebHosting.net. “Call it our relentless pursuit of perfection: we work hard to earn your business, and even harder to keep it.”

BitcoinWebHosting.net has a long list of plans going forward, including a true cloud-platform that will allow customers to instantly provision a VPS in the location they choose, right from their iPhone or Android. And of course, they’ll be able to pay with Bitcoin.

The new services recently added to the site include shared hosting plans from $5 per month and Business-class shared hosting that comes with a free SSL, domain and dedicated IP.

Robert Lons, had this to add: “I truly believe that 2014 will be a big year for Bitcoin. More businesses are coming around every day, and people are starting to understand how technologically amazing Bitcoin is. What we have done is create a Bitcoin-friendly hosting platform that is secure and reliable, where people can safely host their sites, and hopefully give back to the Bitcoin ecosystem themselves.”

While much of the media coverage surrounding Bitcoin tends to miss the point, education is helping clear up confusion and uncertainty. This has lead to more merchants making the decision to start accepting Bitcoin. As BitPay’s merchant directory clearly shows, there are a wide range of businesses who accept Bitcoin, including Overstock.com.

Fraud is another reason merchants are deciding to accept Bitcoin. Payment solutions like PayPal and traditional merchant services often place the onus of dealing with chargebacks and false claims on the business owner. This type of fraud is common and can not only be costly for merchants, but time consuming as well.

Bitcoin removes these particular fraud risks by allowing frictionless payments that are irreversible. In other words, chargebacks don’t exist. While some argue that this offers less protection for consumers, the reality is it reduces costs for merchants, which gets passed on to consumers.

Bitcoin uses a public ledger system to facilitate payments around the globe. The Blockchain, as this public ledger is called, removes trust from the equation and uses math to verify transactions. This ability gives merchants protection from fraud, and because Bitcoin acts like digital cash, it removes the need for consumers to hand over personal details during checkout. At a time when privacy concerns have become the hot issue around the globe, a system that allows consumers to keep their privacy is only going to become more valuable.

About BitcoinWebHosting.net
BWH is the leader in bitcoin hosting solutions, offering unparalleled performance, exceptional support, and a platform that puts the power of privacy in the hands of their customers. BitcoinWebHosting.net offers shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers and DDoS protection, and allows customers to sign up with only an email. No personal details required. Privacy Respected. Bitcoin Accepted.

 

80% of your success comes from 20% of your effort

January 2, 2014 by · Comments Off on 80% of your success comes from 20% of your effort 

Let’s face it, running your online business or hobby site requires a lot of time. Since time is a premium, you should focus your efforts on the tasks that bring in the most revenue for your business.

That’s why you should focus on the Pareto principle:

The Pareto principle states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

Business-management consultant Joseph M. Juran suggested the principle and named it after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed in 1906 that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population; Pareto developed the principle by observing that 20% of the pea pods in his garden contained 80% of the peas.

It is a common rule of thumb in business; e.g., “80% of your sales come from 20% of your clients”. Mathematically, the 80-20 rule is roughly followed by a power law distribution (also known as a Pareto distribution) for a particular set of parameters, and many natural phenomena have been shown empirically to exhibit such a distribution.

So how can you use the Pareto Principle to make more money?

1. Stop being a server admin.

Yeah, it’s fun to install, configure, and troubleshoot applications you want for your website. However, doing this is zapping your effectiveness.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been dragged into productivity killing tasks involving troubleshooting web applications I’ve installed or my employees need help with.

Quite simply… installing, configuring, and troubleshooting should be left to the pro’s. You should be focusing on what you do best – growing your online business.

After all, if customers aren’t coming through the site, then you aren’t making money, right? Read more

Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line

July 27, 2011 by · Comments Off on Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line 

Hosting ServicesTampa FL – Hivelocity Hosting  announced this week they are introducing a new line of i5 Sandy Bridge dedicated servers.   The Intel i5 processor will be replacing the Core2Quad, which currently serves as the introductory line of servers Hivelocity offers.  As Core2Quads slowly fade away with end-of-life approaching, the quad-core i5’s will slide right into that lower pricing segment.

“We have worked with Supermicro to put together a very solid system at a really good price.  The end result is our customers get new Sandy Bridge servers that offer significantly more power than the older Core2Quads for about the same price they have paid for lesser systems in the past,” comments Hivelocity GM Steve Eschweiler.  “Our customers have given our E3-1230 Xeon Sandy Bridge server rave reviews  for the last few months and we anticipate the introduction of another Sandy Bridge system in the lower price spectrum to be just as popular, if not more.  Our customers love a powerful server and they love saving money even more, so the i5 should be a home run for everyone.”

AYKsolutions Announces Linux Mint Operating System Sponsorship

July 20, 2011 by · Comments Off on AYKsolutions Announces Linux Mint Operating System Sponsorship 

Hosting ServicesSchenectady, NY – AYKsolutions, a New York-based market leader in the field of dedicated server hosting, shared hosting, and virtual private server (VPS) hosting, announced today a generous new sponsorship plan to support the ongoing growth of Linux Mint operating system. AYKsolutions is happy to encourage further development within the Linux community and hopes to help Linux Mint reach as many users as possible.

“Linux Mint is a great, free, and actively supported operating system that is easy to use and light on resources,” says Artyom Khmelnitsky, President of AYKsolutions. “With the popularity of the Linux operating system growing at an incredible rate, we are proud to offer two servers at our Denver data center facility, which Linux Mint currently uses for its repositories. This is an exceptional opportunity for us to give something back to the Linux community that we depend on so heavily in the hosting industry, and we are excited to be involved.”

Started in 2006, Linux Mint is a free Linux based operating system distribution that boasts flexibility, responsiveness, and a wide range of supported software packages. Linux Mint is the second most popular Linux variant in the world and the fourth most popular operating system overall, after Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS, and Canonical’s Ubuntu. Distinctively, Linux Mint offers centralized software sources in a similar style to the Apple App Store and the Android Marketplace, allowing Linux Mint’s users to easily browse, download, and install new software as well as application updates. As a direct result of this centralized approach and stunning growth in popularity, Linux Mint now requires a “best of breed” dedicated hosting solution to cater to its users, provided by AYKsolutions.

“With millions of users and a significant increase in our user base this year, our existing servers in Germany simply could not handle the amount of data needed to serve our users efficiently,” says Clement Lefebvre, Founder of Linux Mint. “When thousands of users hit the same server at exactly the same time, you need not only a server that can handle the processing of the information with RAM and CPU, but also, most importantly, a server that can output that much information at a time. The servers provided to us by AYKsolutions respectively serve 100Mb and 1Gb of data per second, enabling us to meet the ever increasing demands of new and existing Linux Mint users.”

There are many varied elements that can have an impact on the overall performance of a web hosting service, and it is common to find a service range that excels within one area but falls short elsewhere. For example, on hosting accounts that provide incredible connectivity features within a facility, a strict bandwidth restriction may be imposed to limit day-to-day usage. Linux Mint requires a dedicated server hosting solution with consistently high performance across all aspects of the hardware. AYKsolutions currently offers competitive hosting services in ten data centers worldwide, with disk space of up to four 1.5TB hard drives, RAM of up to 128GB, and 10Mbps/100Mbps/1Gbps dedicated uplink. This incredible specification is offered with unmetered bandwidth, allowing customers like Linux Mint to benefit from the full capacity of their hardware without the fear of usage restrictions.

“One of the most valuable aspects of the servers provided to us by AYKsolutions is unmetered bandwidth,” says Linux Mint’s Lefebvre. “This means that we can focus on improving our operating system, enjoy the benefits of its success, and see our user base grow even more without having to worry about not being able to serve them.”

“AYKsolutions is honored to be one of the core server providers for Linux Mint,” adds Khmelnitsky. “Without leaders such as Mr. Lefebvre, there would not be the leaps with open source distributions that we see here today. AYKsolutions will continue to support and work together with Linux Mint for as long as necessary.”

By offering the unrivalled power of unmetered dedicated server hosting to these key members of the Linux community, AYKsolutions is demonstrating an ongoing commitment to the development of operating system technology that makes Linux computing accessible. With this new partnership, set to become a long-term arrangement, both Linux Mint and AYKsolutions can continue to be leading forces in the growth of the web hosting and IT industry.

About Linux Mint
Since development began in 2006, Linux Mint has become the fourth most popular operating system in the world and the second most popular Linux OS variant on the market. Linux Mint is a modern, elegant system that blends remarkable ease of use with astonishing power and versatility. In addition, Linux Mint offers a centralized software store, allowing millions of users worldwide to access and download new software for their system as well as regular updates. Linux Mint is also completely free to download and use and is open source with an active development community looking to improve the main feature set on an ongoing basis.
