Strategies for Web Hosting and Managed Services
by Doug Kaye

Doug Kaye provides a clear, complete roadmap for building an effective Web hosting strategy, and offers practical advice and answers to critical questions. The book covers important topics, including the real cost of bandwidth, domain name services, shared versus dedicated servers, backup and recovery, service-level agreements, security, negotiating with and managing vendors, and hardware maintenance and support.

"I give this book an A+ as it is one of the top two technical books I've read. And don't take technical the wrong way. It is written in layman's terms, so anyone who feels comfortable with the Internet could pick this book up and understand exactly what Doug is talking about!"

 Some Tricks and Ideas 

  • The biggest cost for a web host is traffic - be wary of an offer than sounds too good to be true
  • Storage costs them little - don't be too impressed by offers of 5000 MB of space
  • Ask to see other sites they host, and see how fast they load
  • Don't combine domain name purchases with hosting - they can hold your domain ransom if you have a disagreement
  • Look up how many domains they are hosting at
  • Use a coupon code!
