|Web Hosting for Web Developers
"I thought to myself, 'If I were looking for hosting again, what would I want?' The result is MyWinHosting.com."
Paul just told me about www.mywinhosting.com. This is awesome! I don't have to pay extra every time I want an extra resource!
I'll be moving all of my sites over.
Here is a summary of the benefits you receive
- Fast, redundant back bone connections to your server.
If you've ever used a cheap host, you know the reason they are cheap is because they are SLOW. Our connections are fast, fast, fast. Everything else being equal, we think you'll be a lot happier with our speed than one of those "cheap" companies.
Hey. You want some hacker able to access your code? I sure don't. That's why we make sure that each account is completely issolated from every other account.
- An instant access domain.
This allows you to move your site, make sure it works and then tell your registrar that you moved. This saves you time and makes the whole process of moving your account very easy.
- A control panel that gives you complete control over your web site(s).
You will will be able to do just about anything you could do to your web site if it was in the same room you were in.
You will be able to create web directories with two authentication levels and different sets of permission right from the control panel.
Will allow you to assign web applications to web directories.
Sub Accounts and Sub FTP Accounts
Will allow you to create users that can access specific directories within your web site. This is great if you need to be able to give your developers access to your web site. (Because of licensing fees for this feature we need to pass on a $1.00 per month per sub account charge for this feature.)
All of our critical servers run high-end SCSI hard disks in RAID1 or RAID10 arrays. All our servers feature RAID1 or RAID5, with high-performance SCSI or SATA2 hard disks. This means all our systems can tolerate at least 1 hard disk failure with no downtime. All our servers are backed up to secure NAS servers every 24 to 48 hours. All this ensures you data is safer than with us than most people's hard disk.
Our servers run Opteron, XEON or Pentium 4 processors for the best performance. A minimum of 4GB of server-grade DDR RAM is fitted into each of these machines.

AwStats is another great log file analysis program. Of all the free offerings available, I personally think this is the best of the bunch.

Just press a button in the control panel and install these scripts without the usual mess of having to read instructions and make sure you get it right the first time. You have better things to do with your time. Why do it any other way?

If you're still using ASP to program your web site. Or you have an existing application written in ASP, it may need specific server objects on the server. We support:
- Office Web
- Dundas Mailer
- Dundas Upload
- w3 JMail
- w3 SiteTree
- Fight SPAM
Of course we have email servers here that you can send and recieve email from. But, we have a few other features I think you'll be eager to use. For example, every account has the option of fighting spam using the supplied spam filter built into the hsphere control panel. This spam filter uses the dual power of SpamAssassin and DSPAM.
Worried about missing important mail? You have the option of either blocking anything that looks like SPAM from getting to you and bouncing it to the recipient, marking the subject line so you can filter it in your mail client, or sending it to an alternate mailbox.
We also give you the ability to enable SPF on your mail accounts as an additional way of reducing the SPAM problem.
- Fight Virus
The other service you will appreciate is the Virus filter you will have the option of using. Catch those nasties at the server and never give them a chance to infect your computer.
Going to be out of town for a while? You can have your email respond with a message saying so without having to keep your email client running at home the whole time. Of course, you could use this for other business purposes too.

Maybe you want to have all your mail sent to one place. You can forward all mail that comes into the mail servers here, or mail that comes to a specific email address on to another email address.

You can even upload, download, and edit files via our web based interface called WebShell. Access this from the control panel once your account has been created.
- 24 x 7 x 365 Ticket Based Support
You can either create a ticket in your control panel, or you can send us an email. We normally respond within 1 hours 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
- 24 Hour 7 Day a week Server Monitoring
Our techs monitor the computers 24 hours a day 7 days a week and know about problems before you do. You don't need to worry about your site being down.
I find it interesting that the majority of the web hosting companies out there have absolutely NO documentation on their web site. What? Is the control panel THAT intuitive? Ha. We've provided documentation on everything from setting up your account to how to install some of the more popular Open Source web applications that are available on the market. You can check them out here and here.
Warning: Do NOT buy a Windows Web Hosting
service unless it meets the following 8 criteria
There is a lot of confusion surrounding our field. I want to give you 8 criteria or elements you absolutely, positively must have in any solution you obtain:
- Obviously, the first issue is, does the hosting company support the technologies you want to use for your web development? Do they offer ASP.NET web hosting? Do they support asp.net 1.1 AND 2.0? Do they support MS-AJAX?
- Does the support staff understand you when you ask them a question?
- Do you understand the support staff when they answer you?
- Will your information be secure from prying eyes? Make sure a hacker can't ruin your work.
- Is access to your web site going to be fast? You don't want your visitors waiting forever for the page to get to their computer.
- If you are moving your site, will you be able to move the site and test it before making the new site live?
- Do you have any idea how to use the control panel they will be providing you?
