If you became self-employed in the Internet, you normally need a website, a blog, a shop or any other website. That is not so easily made at the beginning, is partly due to the many English words that do not really help a “hosting laity”. Therefore, I would like to address the basics of hosting in today’s article, and introduce the various popular hosting options and their advantages and disadvantages.
In the third article of this small series I have listed for specific projects such as internet shops, forums, blogs, etc., which are criteria to consider when we make a hosting choice.
Today is about the most general principles and methods of website hosting. The surprising first knowledge of many of my web design new customers is that the site is not located on your own computer and is accessed from the Internet. Instead, there is this special provider, so-called Hoster, which usually does not do other than to build up masses of computers in special rooms and “store” against money there websites of individuals and companies to deliver and around the clock on the Internet. Of course you can also own their own computer, called a server put in the cellar, these have around the clock in the Internet and store their own sites there.
For self-employed this is usually not the best option, since it is quite expensive, time-consuming and of course you have the necessary know-how. Larger firms are more frequent to afford a dedicated server “in the closet”.
If you use an external hosting provider, then you pay a monthly rental amount, which is based in the height of the type of hosting, the performance offered, the service and other additional functions booked.

The ALL-INKL – New Media Munnich provides web space, domain names, web hosting and managed server to better conditions. The name ALL-INKL stands for “all inclusive”.
All-Inclusive is doing the demands on themselves, to be able to offer its customers a fair price-performance ratio, to be able to take care of every customer personally and individually, to work with open and clear terms and conditions, as well as a competent and reliable support.
The success of the all-inclusive concept is reflected in the fact that 80% of new customers are won by the recommendation from existing customers. It is increasingly important that quality and used the capacity of two Dresdner data centers. Around 70 employees take care of more than 3,500 servers accounts hosted there. Customers include approximately two-thirds individuals and one-third are companies.
With the reform of ICANN New gTLDs will soon domain zones on the internet with much to add. Choose the address for the site will be much easier, the owners of projects will be a large selection of domain zones “of interest”, “intended”, “territorial principle” and so on.
One of the most successful ideas, in my opinion, is an application for “territorial” blast zone, namely, the “urban” domains. Learning about the opportunities to get your own domain zone, representatives of megacities have applied to ICANN. Some of them have already been approved, we will begin acquaintance with the new “urban” domain zones, where registration will begin very soon:
New York is first of the world’s cities get their own internet domain. Registration will begin in late 2013. Who could doubt it? The city, which is the center of the world economy, the population of which is comparable to a separate state, as anyone of any New York to begin the baton for the registration of “urban» New gTLDs.
.NYC – with such an extension, in a short time, will be able to register their business sites and private organizations, as well as residents of the metropolis.
“Small businesses will benefit from a strong presence on the Internet, in addition .nyc domain will give additional impetus to small businesses in New York, making it more accessible and allow him to conduct their business, relying on the brand of New York” – said Commissioner on small business Robert Walsh.
