At Doteasy, we offer various web hosting plans to cater the needs for different clients. For customers with a limited budget and would like to try out building their first website, our Basic Hosting plan is the perfect solution. Simply register a domain with us and subscribe to our Basic Hosting plan for less than $40 a year,  probably less than the amount of money you would spend on coffee during the week. Don’t know how to make a website? No problem! We have compiled different video tutorials such as “How to create your website with Doteasy Website Creator” and “Building a Professional Website for only $25” to guide you through the building stage, with no skipped steps. With these great tools, you can use either our “click-to-build” website creator or free CSS templates to build your website.

For more advanced users who would like to build their websites with different scripts such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, we recommend our award-winning Unlimited Hosting Plan with PHP support. Never heard of PHP? Definitely check out this great post featured on our Scripts Library about PHP! Our Unlimited Hosting plan comes with FREE Softaculous, an auto-script-installer which offers over 250 hosting apps that can help you install scripts in just a few clicks. Powerful open-source scripts such as WordPress and phpBB enable clients to create websites with more features such as blogging, forum, photo gallery, and even e-commerce options.

The two hosting plans mentioned above are both in a shared hosting environment. With a Shared Hosting plan, you share storage on a web server with other users. Since the costs of the web hosting servers are shared, web hosting providers like Doteasy can offer more affordable prices for such services. However, all the files are exposed to the users that are on the same shared server. If any one of the users makes an error in scripting, all users on the shared server are affected. To lower the chance of this happening, users that are subscribed to Shared Hosting services are not authorized to run their own programs. This may become an issue to certain advanced users as they often need more control over the server settings. Also, in a shared hosting environment, your server resources are shared among all users in the same server. When a website in your server experiences a higher-than-normal website traffic, it will automatically require more usage of the resources. This, however, may affect your website performance.

If your website has high traffic volume, or if your business greatly relies on online presence, you should consider subscribing to our Cloud Hosting plan. One of the main benefits of cloud hosting is the fully-redundant infrastructure, down to every server, router and switch. Automatic failover measures are configured at each layer to ensure your website and applications are accessible at all times, even in the event of a single point of failure. Watch our YouTube Playlist “Cloud Hosting with Reseller Features” as our Cloud Project Manager Marcus not only explains in details about the Cloud Hosting technology, but also takes us on an on-site tour to see our data center.

Now the question is, what’s the main difference between Cloud Hosting and Shared Hosting?

Here is a comparison chart.

How to upload and unzip files through the File Manager of your Doteasy cPanel

February 16th, 2012

As mentioned earlier in our blog post, it is very common that online users store their passwords in their FTP programs. Although such practice is very convenient, if their computers are infected with virus, the virus can examine the infected computers and FTP program. Hackers can then access to the FTP program and find the credentials (and you can imagine the rest of the story). Hence, it is strongly recommended NOT to use the “remember passwords” function in FTP program and internet browsers. In this blog post, we will showcase another alternative to prevent passwords stolen.

FTP is a useful tool for transferring files from webmasters’ computers to their websites. Many webmasters choose to upload their files to their websites through FTP program. In fact, in Doteasy’s cPanel, there is another useful tool called File Manager which lets you manage your web files using a web browser rather than a third-party FTP program. The below video tutorial teaches you how to upload and unzip files to your website through File Manager.
