Web Hosting Advice
for individuals or commercial enterprises.

going forward, we will
only host web sites for which we have
a hand in the development.
We may host web sites we develop,
work on, or by special request.
Otherwise we will no longer sell hosting
service as an independent product.

   

Instead we fall back on the ancient wisdom, "If you can't beat them, join them!"

  4GH "Deluxe" web host package is the best value.
This web site, your looking at now, is hosted on Godaddy's 4GH Deluxe web hosting service.

TechSelfHelp™ previously sold web hosting service directly.
Previously, our basic package offer included 150 MB web space for $5.00 as the lowest price on the Internet for all the collective products and services we include in the package,
pound for pound.

Now Go daddy's "Deluxe Hosting Plan" includes 150 GB (a 1000 times 150 MB) web space, and if you buy 36 months, paid lump sum in advance, the price can be as low as $4.99.

I think we can all see the parallel, 150 MB to 150 GB and $5.00 to $4.99.
Here at TechSelfHelp, it's obvious to us that our competition helped drive prices down.
Perhaps we've helped change the world in a small way.

Advice: things you should know

"Servers" usually refer to computer hardware system, operating systems, and "web server" applications installed on a computer. "Web Servers" usually refer to the application that serves up web sites or streaming media to the internet.

When people talk about windows server, they are actually talking about computer hardware systems, running a windows operating system and with a "web server" application installed to serve web sites to the internet. For the case of windows servers, they are actually referring to the web server "Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Server)" installed on a computer running a windows operating system.

When people talk about Linux, red hat, UNIX, or apache server, what they are actually referring to is a UNIX based hardware computer system, with the Red hat Linux operating system installed on that computer, and with a web server application installed called Apache. This is what TechSelfHelp's and most of the internet servers on the internet today rely on. UNIX servers are "the most tried and tested server systems in the world." If you have any doubts about why we choose linux systems, read here here.

UNIX Hosting Platform details:

UNIX platform provides the most reliable, most tested, and most trusted hosting in the world. UNIX is called a "network operating system (Net OS)." Just as your personal computer uses an Operating System (OS), the UNIX Net OS is designed to use all it's power for network functions like serving up your content, which is far more powerful than using a personal computer, designed with the same hardware but using a typical personal computer OS, for a server.
Unlike hosting off a personal computer, UNIX can process thousands of incoming requests for web content and serve it up to the internet simultaneously without compromising speed or security. Keep in mind most viruses, trojan horses, and malicious spy ware are designed to attack personal computers running a microsoft operating system. UNIX/Linux/Apache server systems are used by more major educational, government and private corporations around the world than all the competition combined.

What's the point? Don't waste money buying windows hosting.
As the person who creates a web site it makes no difference to you,
except you can save money..

"The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards."

"Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The February 2005 Netcraft Web Server Survey found that more than 68% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache, thus making it
more widely used than all other web servers combined," from Apache.org.

TechSelfHelp strongly advises you to not waste your money on a Microsoft server system.
It only obligates you to spending more money per month up front, and much more down the road to expand and maintain your internet presence. Read Unix/Linux vs. Windows.

Choose Linux (the new Unix) and start saving immediately and in the long run.
Remember, you, as a web site creator, has nothing to do with the server.
You don't have to know how it works, you dont work on it, you don't fix it.
That is what your web hosting provider is for.
