I have been disconnected with WebHosting for the last 18 months
I have a few questions maybe you guys could help me out.
1) Is there any links that might have the latest and greatest for webhosting dedicated servers and who the big hitters still are and who is up and coming?
2)Your opinion of the top dedi server companies and perhaps why? (bias or not)
3)Any big hosting mergers or buyouts? Big news?
Thanks looking forward to seeing your thoughts, any and all.
Since you have been out for 18 months I would suggest you check for the new technologies: cloud servers and cloud vps. I won't pin point any particular company, but these on-demand, scalable servers are for sure the way the industry will go. If you follow the technology, you follow the leaders!
Cloud was just starting/catching on up when I left. Is it still in the catching on stage or is it past that? I will look into what the latest specs are. Thanks for the fast reply.
You're welcome. In fact, cloud has evolved in many directions. Some hosts trying to make money on the name, not really using it, others fully embracing it. Check out hosts that offer cloud-servers that are resource scalable instantly and even the pay-per-resource/hour type of servers which use the fullest of the technology.
Ok that is something I was totally unaware of. Thanks! Softlayer was stable and planet was huge (though I thought they had the generator blow a few walls out and that was the big fauxpaw). So it is working out well?
