Five Significant Benefits of VPS Hosting

Virtual Private Server and Dedicated Server

Overall, the benefits of VPS hosting can easily be summarized as affordability, guaranteed resources, full control, better performance, and security & reliability. Let’s learn about them at length.

1. Guaranteed Server Resources

Different from shared environment which share precisely the same server resources, VPS offers guaranteed resources to every virtual server. Each vps possesses its own storage, data transfer usage, CPU, RAM, IP, and other resources. Even if the neighbored vps consumes too many resources, it cannot influence your site resources and performance. So you don’t need to worry about your site affected by the malicious websites on the same server.

2. Full Control

VPS hosting offer full control and root usage of users. As a result, it is possible to setup the OS as you want, install your preferred control panel and software, and do anything you like to handle and configure your server without restrictions. You can tweak the server to enhance the server performance and install custom applications and scripts to run unique websites; which is not accessible in the shared environment.

Google: Backlinks Still Crucial for Rankings

With Google’s recent algorithm updates, webmasters have started believing that links no longer work and it does not matter to Google anymore. But the truth is, links are the most crucial element in Google’s ranking algorithm and it is really important to have the right links if you want your website to rank high and attract more visitors. Google’s Matt Cutts has also stated that links are very essential if you want to rank high.


From transcript:
“Backlinks are a really, really big win in terms of quality for search results [… ] backlink relevance still really helps in making sure we return the best, most relevant, most topical set of search results.” This was confirmed by Matt Cutts in another video:

It’s a Year Since Snowden Leaks – Still Efforts On to Restore Trust on Online

It has been roughly a year back the truth that US national security agency NSA has been accumulating huge amounts of personal data on American and other international citizens secretly.

snowden leaksThis year, a year after Edward Snowden leaked the documents on how and to what extent government has collected huge amounts of personal data, he has become an icon of the movement that demands more transparency from government agencies when they are using Internet technologies for the purpose of surveillance.

However, transparency is just a one-way street in that regard to this heavily corrupted and non-constitutional government. They want to know everything you are doing but they want you not to know how they are spying on you, and are secretive in dozens if not hundreds of other ways.

Dauntless and strident calls for reforms in government government surveillance are coming from the companies that hold large amount of customer and client data on the Web. The compulsions come in the form of threats of prosecution through court orders issued by the Foreign International Surveillance Court. The orders seek the information without intimation of such a move to the customer. This sounds like the Nazi era during World War II. The companies who are responsible for personal data are working over strengthening their security backbone through encryption of customer’s data at least at some key junctions. The move came after NSA managed to intercept customer data flowing between various private data centers of Google.

Bad Panda! Google has changed ranking again: Panda 4.0 and PDL 2.0.

Millions of websites have began lost their rankings after the update. Has your website affected? Perhaps your ranking went up as others float down?

What can you do to avoid new ranking problems?

According to several recent reports, major sites such as ask.com (competition to google), ebay.com, biography.com and aceshowbiz.com have lost as much as 70% of their rankings on Google. It seems that the content (often automatically server generated) of these web pages is not appetizing for Google’s new ranking algorithms.

How does this affect your web pages?

If your website mainly consists of quite similar pages, it’s likely that your site will be affected by Google’s new ranking manipulations and similarly if the content/structure of your pages has been created automatically or ‘dynamically’.

These algorithms now additionally target webpage spam. If you do not get too spammy with your pages, you shouldn’t have to worry much.

If you want to get long-term results, do not use spammy methods to promote your website. Use ‘white-hat’ methods and play by the rules. Your website’s Google rankings will be much more stable then.
