How to Reset Admin Password in Windows Server 2012 R2

Windows Server 2012 R2 brings a host of new features that greatly enhance the functionality of the operating system. Many of these improvements expand on existing capabilities of Windows Server 2012.  The new product also benefits from having the capability of performing at a much higher level than previous servers and comes equipped with an integrated virtualization platform.

 

In this article I will tell you about how to reset Windows Server 2012 R2 lost admin password. The answer is not absolute. For example, if you have password reset disk or another administrator available, Windows server 2012 r2 lost admin password would be reset instantly.
Or if you have backup Windows system status with disk, such as Windows system restore disc, you could restore Windows server 2012 r2 to early system point.
Even though there are not anything available for recovering server 2012 r2 password, Windows system 2012 r2 installation disk and third-party recovery tool would help you too.

First, Windows system installation disk reset Windows server 2012 r2 admin password.
Preparation: a copy of Windows server 2012 r2 installation disk
The key step of resetting server 2012 r2 admin password with installation disk is to replace Utilman.exe.

  • Boot off Windows disk and select the "Repair your computer" option from the lower left-hand corner.
  • Get to the option to open the Command Prompt.
  • Type the following commands to back up the utilman.exe file:
  • MOVE C:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe C:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe.bak
  • Copy cmd.exe and rename it Utilman.exe.
  • COPY C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe C:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe
  • Now you can go ahead and reboot your machine. When it's done booting up again and you are at the Logon screen click on the Ease of access icon.
  • Now you have replaced Utilman.exe with cmd.exe.
  • Command Prompt opens, type following commands:
  • .net user administrator *

Once you press Enter, you will be asked to set a new password and then confirm it. When entering new one, don't worry if you can't see it, because it is invisible, however it has been remembered.
Once you're logged in again, don't forget to delete Utilman.exe and then rename Utilman.exe.bak back to plain old Utilman.exe.

Second, reset server 2012 r2 admin password with third-party Windows password genius.
Windows Password Genius has four versions available, standard, professional, and advanced and raid. And the raid version is special, because it works for raid server Windows domain or local admin password reset. The advanced is general version, working on both server and client computers.

So choose appropriate Windows password recovery version to burn a password reset disk and then recover Windows server administrator password.
Preparation: Windows Password Genius Advanced/Raid, available computer and bootable USB drive.

  • Install Windows Password Genius Raid, and run it on available computer.
  • Insert bootable USB drive into this available computer and choose USB, click "Begin burning" to create password reset disk with USB.
  • Exit USB device after it is successfully burned with password reset disk.
  • Plug USB into server 2012 r2 and boot server from USB.
  • Recovery tool program runs, and then choose Windows system - Windows serve 2012 r2, and select user account - administrator.
  • Click "Reset Password", the administrator would be set with new password "[email protected]".

At last, reboot server computer to finish Windows password reset. But remember to exit USB reset disk from server before your server computer boots from hard disk successfully.

Windows Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Best Practices windows cloud server security

clock April 27, 2016 20:57 by author Armend

More and more we are helping people get set up on  Windows cloud servers here at windows2008hosting.asphostportal.com .  While dedicated server solutions are the right choice for certain situations, clients are finding the benefits of cloud servers or, in many cases, a hybrid hosting solution to be the perfect fit for their hosting needs. With all this cloud talk, there are several technologies supported on Windows cloud servers that you may not have realized. These options can make the difference when configuring a cloud server solution that will best optimize your site or application.

 

Firewalls, VPN & SSL in the Cloud

The best practices of leveraging Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) and Firewalls to protect sensitive information on a Windows Cloud Server are recommend and also supported just as they would be with a physical dedicated server. If you’re unsure as to what any of these are and why they are necessary, the following will serve as a summary of each and their benefits.

What is VPN?

Virtual Private Networking is a secure and controlled method of connecting remote networks and users for the purpose of dealing with sensitive information. When using a VPN, all data is encrypted at the source, sent securely to the destination, then decrypted at the destination – assuring that only the previously approved source and destination people or systems can access the data. This is often a necessary element to incorporate in your hosting solution if you are an eCommerce company accessing sensitive back-end data like credit cards or orders, require PCI compliance, or simply need to securely work with remote clients or coworkers regarding sensitive information. A VPN connection allows you to guarantee identity through point-to-point connections and user authentication. While Windows cloud servers are virtual, they retain all the same VPN encrypting capabilities as a dedicated server, giving you complete control over security and privacy of your data. (For more information on Virtual Private Networking.

What is an SSL Connection?

The Secure Socket Layer protocol (SSL) ensures secure transactions between Windows cloud servers and browsers. This is particularly important anytime sensitive information must be transmitted over the open Internet. For example, any sign-up process where personal information is needed, (credit card information, personal data, etc.) would justify use of an SSL connection. You can recognize the use of an SSL connection when you see an “S” included in the URL (https://).
While the technical breakdown of an SSL can be somewhat complicated, it’s important to understand the basic concept of an SSL connection and how important it is inmaintaining security with sensitive information.

What is a Firewall?

A firewall is a security solution designed to only allow safe and trusted connections to whatever it is set to protect. It does this by identifying several pieces of information for all incoming connections, thus blocking access to any unfamiliar or unauthorized sources looking to access that data. The difference between a firewall and an SSL connection is that SSL is used to ensure your sensitive information can be securely sent from a webpage to a server, while a firewall is designed to control direct access to the cloud server itself. A firewall can be used to lock down ports and allow only certain information to be accessible, while keeping other information secure.

Firewall in a Windows Cloud Server

In order to set up a firewall in a Windows cloud server configuration, various steps must be taken to optimize the firewall for the cloud – but depending on your hosting provider, these steps will be covered for you. Once these steps are taken, it is no different than a firewall configured for a dedicated physical server.
Note: In addition to base intrusion detection and firewall protection offered at our network core, our Windows Cloud Servers come with free built-in Windows Firewall service that can be used to lock down ports and restrict access with a focus on the specific needs of your server – assuring that only the ports needed are opened and only available to the users or systems that need the sensitive access.

Cloud Server Security Best Practices

The above security steps are important in and of themselves, but they also serve as a baseline for achieving PCI Compliance, something in which we at ASPHostPortal.com are well versed. So, whether you’re looking to sure up your security as a best practice, or find yourself needing to implement the above steps in accordance with the PCI Security Standard Council, Windows cloud server hosting offers all the tools available on a dedicated server configuration, but often with several added benefits.

Windows Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Choose Shared Web Hosting Service?

clock April 25, 2016 20:43 by author Armend

How to Choose Shared Web Hosting Service?

Shared web hosting is the most popular hosting solution for launching websites over the Internet. To help you pick a good option, we have introduced the most important aspects that should be considered when choosing web hosting service, including hosting features, customer service, cancellation policy, free marketing credits, and price. These are transparent checkpoints that you can evaluate a web host by yourself easily before signing up.

 

What Is Shared Web Hosting?

In order to have your business more visible for billions of internet users, you need to rent a web server which has fast connection to Internet and allows people to read your information. There are many options for hosting your websites. Usually the reasonable solutions are dedicated server, virtual private server, cloud hosting, and shared web hosting. If you're new to the internet or the estimated daily traffic of the website in the coming year is less than 800 page views or 300 unique visits, the shared web hosting shall be the best choice.

Shared web hosting means that the hosting company sells a dedicated server to thousands of customers. All of these customers share the server resources with each other. Each customer's data and files are protected to be invisible to others hosted with the shared server by some software or technology. Each customer has the complete access to the hosting account and shall be allocated with appropriate system resources.
What Is Shared Web Hosting The shared web hosting provider is responsible for the server maintenance, including both hardware and software.

  • Hardware: upgrade CPU, add memory, replace hard disk, setup backup system such as RAID 0/1/5, network routing and internet connection.
  • Software: upgrade OS or hosting solution software, install security patch, manage firewall, etc.

Meanwhile, as a customer, you have a web based control panel to manage your websites and services. You can view your website uptime or traffic statistics, exception logs, email accounts, and installation of applications. Most of companies don't help you maintain your website as the part of the hosting package unless you pay the additional money which may be more expensive than the hosting service itself.

Why Choose Shared Web Hosting?

Right Expectation on Customer Service For Shared Web Hosting Absolutely, it's the most budget and affordable web hosting solution that can promote your websites over the Internet. Generally, a good shared web hosting works flexibly for websites with less than 800 daily page views.
Another reason is that you don't need to take time maintaining the web server by yourself or hiring IT professionals. The hosting provider takes all of the work. Even some excellent providers perform data backups daily or weekly.

How to Choose Shared Web Hosting?

Pricing & Features

How to Choose Shared Web Hosting The reasonable price of shared web hosting is between $4 and $8 a month. This is the best range that well balances your cost and the web hosting service. It is suspected that some web hosts offer cheap web hosting under $3/month. In that case, it's highly possible that they cut off the customer service or oversell the server.
The best features of a web hosting are the things you require to launch your websites. So what you need to do is to create a list of features on what you need today and tomorrow, and check whether these are included by the hosting plan.

Reliability & Downtime Frequency

Reliability correlates to downtime. The downtime here doesn't mean 5 or 10 minutes down for server maintenance or scheduled operation. As I known, almost all web hosts have been hacked/attacked, down by hardware, or broken by OS/software upgrade. The key is the frequency and how they deal with the problem.
Right Expectation on Customer Service For Shared Web Hosting Basically, have one or twice downtime in a year is reasonable for web hosting in my opinion, not only shared web hosting, but also VPS hosting and dedicated server hosting. The reliability is determined by hardware, software and human maintenance.
As running a computer on hand, no one can guarantee there is no downtime caused by the damage of CPU, memory, motherboard or other hardware. How you can expect a server running for 24/7/365 with high working load without any problems.

Meanwhile, the system holes exist anywhere at all the time, so the hacks and attacks are endless. The FBI site had been hacked before, how you can think the web hosting is 100% secure perfectly.
What's more, most web hosts guarantee more than 99.9% uptime. To be frank, this number is extremely high. As we monitored dozens of web hosts , ASPHostPortal.com is the only host that completely provides such a reliable solution consistently. Read the uptime in the past 30 days below,



ASP.NET Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Rank the Windows Hosting

clock April 19, 2016 20:01 by author Armend

How to Rank the Windows Hosting

To choose the really reliable Windows hosting, we follow the below guidelines.

#Operation System

The web hosting based on Windows server 2012 edition is ranked higher than the previous editions. Windows server 2012 has better performance, better stability, less consumption of system resources and high security. And it supports the best web server IIS 8.0 in Windows platform so far, which integrates with the ASP.NET pipeline much better than IIS 8.5/7.0

 

#Database System

ASP.NET applications work better with MSSQL than MySQL or PostgreSQL database. And the Windows web hosting supported MSSQL 2008 R2 gets a higher grade than MSSQL2005 and MSSQL2000. Feature and benefits in MSSQL2008 are better than the previous version of MSSQL, such as encrypt to enhance security, data compression to save disk space, parallel computing to accelerate speed, less consumption of system resource, and so on.

#DotNET Framework

The Windows hosting with support to multiple .NET framework versions especially .NET Framework V4 has a higher score in the ranking. The more versions supported the less compatible problems you may encounter, which also provides you more scalability to upgrade the websites later.

#Control Panel

Plesk is ranked as the No.1 control panel for Windows web hosting, and DotNETPanel, H-Sphere and other types have its advantage and disadvantage. We graded these types of control panels with different scores.

#Reliability

Reliability is the factor must be considered. It is evaluated by different criteria, we list these indicators below.

  • Uptime
  • Pre-install anti-virus software
  • Pre-install firewall
  • Network
  • Stable Datacenter

The best Windows web hosting listed above are ranked on these criteria, and all the 3 best windows web hosting truly meet the highest standards, which can powerful enough to run your website.

Pros and Cons of Windows Web Hosting

In fact, the Windows hosting solution is not as popular as the Linux hosting service. To give you a better understanding about this hosting type, we have listed some strong points and weak points of Windows web hosting.

The Strong Points

If your web host is a reliable and quality hosting provider, this hosting type can even achieve a more stable running than the normal Linux hosting solution.
It is surely multilingual that supports multiple scripting languages we have covered nowadays.
This hosting type is surely easy-to-use due to the immense popularity of Microsoft technologies. With it, there is no need to for you run the command line.
If you do not have enough experiences and knowledge of hosting, this type of hosting solution is arguably easier for you for the management tasks.

The Weak Points

Windows hosting is surely expensive. After all, the system of Windows is not free to use, but requires you to pay for the license fee. In addition, Windows can only be got from the official site or a few appointed agents, so there are almost no chances for you to get some lower charges or the attractive promotional campaign.
If you want to install some PHP based plugins, extensions and modules, the Windows hosting may fail to work well due to the compatibility issue.
Generally, PHP cannot work effectively with IIS as compared with Apache. For webmasters who are running a PHP based application, the 500 error might occur constantly.
Your web hosts may give you little flexibility for customizing and configuring your web servers.
If you want to use WordPress to set up and control your website, the Windows hosting service may fail to ensure you a good experience.



Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Advantages Of Hosting Reseller And Domain Reseller

clock August 24, 2010 05:58 by author Jervis

Benefits of Hosting Reseller and Domain Reseller are manifolds but before going on we need to understand what exactly do these two terms stand for. Firstly Domain reseller, They are individuals or companies who act as agents for ICANN accredited registrars. They buy domains at wholesale price and sell them on to their customers. It is a bit like being a middle man for selling domains. You buy them from the parent company and then you sell them to your customers. It is one of the most popular and growing forms of online business.

Hosting reseller on the other hand is the middleman selling web space on someone else server. In other words, a hosting reseller purchases web space in bulk from a hosting company and then sells them again to his customer in chunks, earning profit for himself. The profit of a hosting reseller lies in the commission or discount that they get by selling the hosting accounts to some other customers. If you want to host your website and have been looking for the right hosting plan, then no doubt hosting reseller is the best deal for you.

There are many benefits of hosting reseller, but some of the major benefits are revenue generation for the companies who do not have the time, money, or resources to maintain their own servers and data centers. Furthermore, troubleshooting servers is usually a matter for the Web host, not the middleman. Therefore, the reseller can concentrate on issues like customer service and consulting, which results in savings for the client. Hosting reseller can also be more scalable than a typical hosting firm. A Web host is limited by its hardware; if a client suddenly requires an upgrade the host is not prepared. However the hosting reseller can simply choose to locate with a different Web host that will better suit the customer’s needs. No matter what type of business you own, you might benefit by offering hosting reseller it enables you to sell cheap web hosting packages to your customers.

Similarly, domain reseller has many advantages, first and foremost they are able to provide discounted prices for the domains they are selling as part of the reseller program as they buy them wholesale from the registrars. Domain reseller often gives better customer service than regular registrars as they can provide registration of available domain names for clients and often engage in the process of acquiring expired domains from a drop register for later resale. There will be Customer privacy as most of the domain reseller will never contact your customers directly. You will also get a user friendly control panel, a dedicated account manager, meaning you will never feel frustrated dealing with an anonymous account representative Dedicated reseller team, meaning you work with people who know the reseller business and so on.

Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Earn More With Reseller Hosting

In the past few years the business of reseller hosting has emerged as one of the most interesting and unique online business ideas among the young businessmen. If you are a business person and want to invest in such a kind of a business where you can eventually work under a big brand and, yet, at the same time you can work independently with your customers too, then the business of reseller web hosting will be beneficial. Here, you will get a chance to earn a good amount of profit.

Well now let’s get into the depth of reseller hosting. Well if you are a reseller then here you have to purchase the web space from the original company. You just have to pay the nominal whole sale price for getting the web space from the actual company. As a middleman, you will not only get the web space but at the same time you will also get the associated services too, that the original company offers to its clients.

Now once you purchase the web space you can resell it to the other customers who require this space. Mostly it is website owners who need this kind a space. You can sell this space at a much higher price to them. So, you are just acting like a middleman here, as the real service belongs to the main service provider.

Let’s take up a small example. If you are a running a reseller web hosting business, so from the original company you have to buy a certain amount of web space, say here it is 1000MB. To buy this web space you had to pay $30 per month to the original company. Now, once you have purchased the web space of 1000MB you can further segregate this space into 10 small parts of 100MB each and sell them to the customers at $20 per month.

So, after selling web space to 10 customers at $20 each per month you will earn $200 every month. Now isn’t it good profit? Here, you are just spending $30 and at the end of the month you are earning $200. So, you are getting a profit amount of $170.

If you are into reseller hosting business then you have to be always in touch with your customers as well as the original company. Here, according to the need of your clients you can change the plan and satisfy their requirements.

So, what are you waiting for to get reseller hosting packages? Find the reseller hosting at ASPHostPortal.

Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Resell Web Hosting in Five Easy Steps

clock July 13, 2010 11:24 by author Jervis

We’ll outline the five basic steps necessary to create a Web hosting business through reselling accounts that are provisioned in a reseller Web hosting data center. While there are many details that are required to be successful in any business, these five steps should get you started, and with some diligence and persistence - you may become a sizable Web hosting venture.

Reselling Web Hosting - Step 1: Get an Exceptional Domain Name.

It may be obvious to you, but having the proper domain for your Web hosting venture is critical to your success. Why? There are two basic reasons: branding (recall) and search engine optimization. In order to sell Web hosting to your prospects, they first have to be able to find you. That is, they have to know that you offer Web hosting accounts for sale.

The most common form of online research is the ubiquitous search engine.

There are really only 2 that matter: Google and Yahoo! In order to come up on the first few pages of any relevant search for Web hosting related keywords, it is imperative that your domain name contain some form of that keyword phrase. You can prove this to yourself by conducting a search for the keyword, ‘hosting’ at www.google.com. You will notice that many of the top results contain the word ‘host’ or ‘hosting’ in the domain name. It simply gives you an advantage in search rankings.

So where to get such a name? You can go to a good domain search site like, www.whois.sc (use the domain explorer tab) and see if there is a name that has not yet been registered. The chances of a great, short, memorable name being available is low (but not zero) - so you can increase the odds of getting a great name in two ways: get a domain that is expiring or buy a name from the current owner.

There are many great names that are expiring each day - that is, the current owner has not renewed the domain by paying the yearly registration fees. In fact, around 20,000 expired domains come back into circulation each day. Sometimes the owner forgets, sometimes they lose interest - in any event, you can snag a great name if you are willing to do some research.

Alternatively you can simply buy a domain name from the current owner.

Sites such as www.sedo.com can assist you in finding eager sellers for a wide variety of domain names. Okay - now you’ve got a great domain name - let’s move to step 2.

Reselling Web Hosting - Step 2: Finding and Setting up a Great Web Hosting Reseller Account.

Unless you want to set up your own domain registration process, get connectivity from major bandwidth providers, and have a warehouse full of high end computers - you’ll want to get a reseller account from an established supplier. A good reseller account will offer tools (control panel) to manage multiple domains and accounts from one central location. That way, you can log in once and check the billing and provisioning status of all of your customer accounts.

”The most important thing to look for is a provider that provides an uptime guarantee and a proven track record of upholding that guarantee. If the provider you go with has frequent downtime you are destined to fail before getting started. Do not let the resources in the plan or the price cloud your judgement when looking for a stable provider to launch your new company.”

Reselling Web Hosting - Step 3: Set up a Great Website and Order Form.

You have to look professional in order to convince customers to sign up with you as a Web host. That means a website designed by a professional. You can either hire a designer (expensive) or use a template (inexpensive) like those found at: www.templatemonster.com. The benefits of hiring a designer is that you get a unique website that looks exactly the way you want. It may cost you quite a bit, though. In contrast, a template will be somewhat cookie-cutter, but will look professional and help you save some money during your startup process.

Whichever way you decide to go, make sure that you pay close attention to the sign up process. Make the order form as simple and easy to fill out as possible. If you can have something default checked to save time, by all means do so. Be sure to include a summary page of the order so that your customers can review their order before purchase.

Reselling Web Hosting - Step 4: Driving Qualified Traffic to Your Website.

You can’t get customers without having some traffic to your new website. There are complete textbooks written on how to market and gain website traffic. We will focus you on only one possible traffic-driving solution, but one which has proven to work for many small online businesses - Google’s AdWords advertising.

You can see a complete and detailed step-by-step tutorial on using Google AdWords here: www.sitepoint.com/article/adwords-select-parts-1-4.

Below is a quick-start guide to getting your Google traffic flowing in a few hours:

Setting Up a Google AdWords Account Step-by-Step

Okay, take a deep breath. Settle into the chair in front of your computer and get ready to go. Follow these steps exactly:

1. Navigate your browser to: https://adwords.google.com/select and click on the ‘Sign Up Now’ area.

2. Select the appropriate language and geographical targeting – ‘Regions and cities’ if you are a local business, ‘Global or nationwide’ if you serve all regions (we’ll use this setting for our example). Click the ‘Save and Continue’ button.

3. Next you choose your countries. If you are a North American business, we highly recommend selecting ‘United States’ only. To do this - go to the right hand box entitled ‘Selected Countries’ and highlight ‘All Countries’ with your mouse. Then click the ‘Remove’ button. The ‘Selected Countries’ box will now be empty. Go to the left column and highlight ‘United States’ - then click the ‘Add’ button. Click the ‘Save and Continue’ button.

4. Now you name your ad group and create your first online ad. Don’t worry - you can always go back and edit your ad at anytime. Just have fun with it for now! To get started, think up a name that you want to call your first group of ads. Type this name into the box labeled: ‘Name this Ad Group’.

Now go to section A: ‘Create Ads’ just below. You simply fill in the boxes and Google does this cool ‘automatic update’ that shows you what your ad will look like as you are filling in the boxes. When you have an ad that you like - click the ‘Save and Continue’ button.

5. Choose the keywords that will trigger your ad. If you sell ‘Unix Web Hosting’ then start with that keyword. If you sell ‘ASP.NET Hosting’ then start with that. Once you have typed in a search term, you can always use the ‘Keyword Suggestion Tool’ link on the same page to expand your list. Google will automatically suggest words that may expand your traffic. Be sure to do a reality check against this list - it’s automated and some terms may not be appropriate for your business. Once you have a list of keywords, click the ‘Save Keywords’ button to continue.

6. Choose your maximum bid. We always set this to $.05 (five cents) to start. This is Google’s minimum bid amount. You can always change it later if you need more traffic. Type in .05 and click the ‘Calculate Estimates’ button. Ignore the resulting estimates - they are almost always wrong.

Simply click the ‘Save and Continue’ button. At this step Google will ask if you want to create another ad group - simply bypass this step by clicking the ‘Continue to Step 3’ button.

7. Now you specify you daily budget. We suggest being conservative here as well. You can always increase this later. For now - figure out how much you can spend each month for traffic and divide by 30. Put in an amount that is this number or even lower. We usually start with $5 per day as a maximum.

When you’ve decided, simply click the ‘Save and Continue’ button.

8. Entering your contact information and password. This step requires you to give Google a valid email address that you can check - in order to send you to the final confirmation and billing step. Fill in your email and pick a password that you can remember - preferably one that has at least 1 numeral and is difficult to duplicate easily.

At this point you should see the following message: ”Thank you for signing up with AdWords. Please check your email ([email protected]) for a message from Google containing a link to our verification program.” Follow the link in that message to confirm that we have your correct email address.

9. Check your email and finish setting up your account. Go to your email and retrieve the Google email. Follow the link inside - this will verify that your email is valid. Then simply login to your AdWords account using the email address and password that you supplied in the last step.

10. Once you log in you will see the following message: ”Note: Your account hasn’t been activated. Payment information is required in order to run your ads. Please provide your payment information on the Billing Preferences page in the “My Account” section. Typically, your ads will begin running almost immediately after you submit this information.” Simply follow the ‘Billing Preferences’ link and enter your credit card information. When complete click the ‘Save Changes’ button.

11. Your AdWords account is now live! You will see traffic from your ads coming to your site almost immediately if you have selected popular keywords.

Reselling Web Hosting - Step 5: Differentiate Your Offering!

You can’t expect to sell your web hosting to anyone of you adopt a ‘me-to’ attitude. Make certain that you are different in some significant way from other Web hosting offerings out there. You can differentiate by creating a unique special offer, by having an exceptional promotion or giveaway, or by bundling services that other companies don’t offer together - it doesn’t matter exactly what is different about your web hosting offer - just make sure it’s different.

One last thing - remember to give a high level of customer service, or your new found customers will flee to a more attentive competitor.

Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Making The Web Work For Your Data Center - Data Hosting Reseller Web Accounts

clock June 15, 2010 11:37 by author Jervis

For a firm as detail-oriented and important as a data center, data hosting reseller web space doesn't come by very easily. A data center is not just any business - it is a business that sometimes deals with sensitive information. And as such, it requires partners who adopt only the highest standards of security and performance.

It may be difficult for some to believe that even for such a center, data hosting reseller web space is available, and even desirable. From what the web-savvy know, reseller hosting is not absolutely secure.

But there are different kinds of reseller hosting available. It all depends on the agreement reached by the reseller outfit and the original web host. At times the two will only enjoy a client-marketer relationship, and all the reseller will do is get customers who will then coordinate directly with the web host. However, it must be noted that resellers who do this usually provide their own service staff, acting not just as marketers but also middlemen for the web hosts and the customers they are able to get.

In any case, such an arrangement will eliminate risks to the security of the data. The data center web staff restrict their correspondences to representatives of the web host itself. Additional security measures, such as the installation of secure web-based conferencing software - which data center representatives may use to securely contact the web hosts and other key business partners - may be requested for an additional fee.

Large reseller web spaces may also be utilized for archiving purposes. A lot of data centers now request secure access to dedicated servers - which may also be acquired with the help of reseller vendors. Dedicated servers ensure speedy transfer of files, and moreover provide the kind of space that would allow a data center to enjoy the modern benefits of remote file storage. Contracting a web host would also save a data center time and manpower in maintaining its own remote storage servers.

Data centers need access to the web, for faster and more efficient transfer and filing of important information. And for a data center, data hosting reseller web space may prove to be practical alternative.

If you’re looking for reseller hosting, you can choose ASPHostPortal. ASPHostPortal is a premiere web hosting provider, proudly support the reliable yet affordable Reseller hosting.

Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Business Reseller Hosting as a Small Enterprise

clock June 7, 2010 06:24 by author Jervis

If you already have experience hosting a large web space, and are comfortable allocating smaller chunks of your web space for different purposes - and to different users, which in fact would make you even more experienced - why not think seriously about going into business reseller hosting? We recommend you to try ASPHostPortal. You can get professional hosting only with the low price. So, try it!

Business reseller hosting is a promising enterprise. Small entrepreneurs with traditional marketing backgrounds are still learning about the virtues of advertising on the Internet. Steadily, the pervasive power of Internet advertising is making more sense to conventional business owners who offer various services and products, from home crafts to back-office services.

There are different kinds of reseller accounts, and the nature of most of them depends on the covenant you arrive at with your chosen web host. Perhaps you'd simply like to be a web space marketer, in which case you can contact your target webhost and reach an arrangement regarding marketing scope and commission rates. Or perhaps you'd like to become a redistributor of shared space - that is, you buy a large amount of web space from an established web host, then sell off smaller parts of the web space to interested parties.

In fact resellers who opt for the latter method are in demand among small and medium business owners. Resold web space could be much cheaper and more practical than if it was bought directly from a web host.

Another strong point of resellers, ideally, is that they are easy to get to - so that if there are any emergency fixups or upgrades that need to be done, the resellers are always at hand. So if you've had experience as a web developer or network administrator, it would be a great way to make money on the side. Some individuals who resell web space find themselves short-handed when they need to reply to queries and fix massive scripting errors. But if you're already an expert on troubleshooting web accounts, you'll be more ready for anything!

Business reseller hosting is a good way to make money for those of us in Web development, or those who have had experience in being webmasters. Fire up your sleeping entrepreneurial spirit!
