HOW TO CALCULATE THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC FOR YOUR SITE?

There are very favorable hosting rates for site hosting. But sometimes they are intimidated by traffic restrictions. We will understand how to determine whether the site will fit into the established framework.

BANDWIDTH CALCULATION

A simple calculation can tell a lot of interesting things: 
Required traffic = average number of page views x average page weight x average number of visitors per day x number of days per month x reserve. 
The average number of visitors per day is the total number of visitors per month, you need to divide by 30.

  • The average page weight is the average size of a single page file.
  • The average number of page views is the average number of page views per visitor.
  • Reserve is a safety factor that varies between 1.3-1.8.

We arrange the numbers, and get a rough estimate of the bandwidth that is required for your site.

CALCULATION OF THE BANDWIDTH OF THE SITE FROM WHICH YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A FILE

The calculation is carried out in a similar way, only need to identify additional channels for download. Site bandwidth and downloads are easily calculated using the formula: 
Required traffic = [(Average number of page views x average page weight x average number of visitors per day) + (average number of downloads per day x average file size)] x number of days per month x reserve . 
The average number of visitors per day is the total number of visitors per month should be divided by 30

  • The average page weight is the average size of a single page file.
  • The average number of page views is the average number of page views per visitor.
  • The average file size is the total size of the site files divided by the number.
  • Reserve is a safety factor that varies between 1.3 – 1.8.

EXCESS BANDWIDTH

Now you understand that there is a certain margin of safety, ranging from 30% to 80%, which is used in the calculation of throughput. The reason for this is that the bandwidth reserve is crucial, if necessary to withstand sudden spikes in traffic.

That is, the higher the backup rate, the more stable the server. So, it can cope with an unexpected jump in traffic that can erase all the differences between a successful and unsuccessful advertising campaign site.

For example, your article was on the first page of Google for the search query “iphone” – and the server does not cope with a sharp increase in traffic. That is how a good advertising campaign suddenly ended very badly.

The amount of traffic for the site is quite simple to calculate

HOW TO DETERMINE IF A SITE NEEDS MORE BANDWIDTH?

As a rule, if the site is constantly busy and slow, this is the first sign that a higher bandwidth is required.

The probability that the provider simply does not have enough bandwidth reserve capacity is also not excluded. To solve this problem, it is necessary to increase the bandwidth, or switch to a dedicated server, since there is no need to share the bandwidth of the site with other hosting clients.

In addition, you can use file hosting services, which not only allows you to save an impressive margin of site bandwidth, but also make a profit for downloading your files.

CONCLUSION

When choosing a suitable hosting plan, you should, in addition to the amount of bandwidth, pay particular attention to some details.

The frequency of the processor, the number of databases, RAM – this is just a partial list. In fact, without quality resources on these parameters – unlimited bandwidth loses its meaning.

HOW TO MOVE A SITE FROM ONE HOSTING TO ANOTHER

Sites from one hosting to another can be transferred for various reasons, starting with frequent server shutdowns, the excessive cost of provider services and ending with insufficient technical support and many other uncomfortable features.

The most important thing when transferring a site to another hosting service is to perform a “move” with high quality and as quickly as possible, because when you turn off, there is an outflow of regular visitors, which can be difficult to return. Therefore, it is desirable that the work of the resource is not interrupted at all. Next, we will try to disassemble the standard conditions for transferring a site from one hosting to another, since there are many providers that have special settings of the administration panel, the consideration of which will take more than one page.

The whole procedure of transferring a site from hosting to hosting consists of three main stages, each of which we will discuss in more detail:

  1. Change of addresses of domain names.
  2. Database transfer.
  3. Transfer codes of all pages and scripts.
We transfer the site to another hosting

STEP 1

Step 1 is a procedure for changing the addresses of the site domain names to new ones belonging to the “new” provider. These data can be found in the technical support service, and then entered in the administration panel.

Addresses have something like this: ns1.hoster.ru  and so on, a total of a maximum of four (usually two). Hoster in the address bar is replaced with the name of the new host. So, in most cases, it is enough to specify only two addresses instead of four, sometimes with ip-addresses, so the address will look like this: ns 1. hoster ru . 111.111.11.11 (in the place of “111.111.11.11” there will be real addresses).

After that, you can enter the administration panel and, under the line “Change DNS servers”, “Domain settings” or similar, go directly to changing old addresses to new ones. At the end, be sure to press the save button. As a result, the mail will receive a notification letter, which will indicate the procedure that you followed.

STEP 2

We transfer the site database to another hosting. First you need to copy the existing database – site dump. To do this, in the control panel, find the item “Database” or similar, where the link to the tool that manages the site DBMS will be located. There are a large number of such modules, so in the article we will focus on PHPMyAdmin. In this panel, you need to select the name of the required database to save, the entire list of which is located on the left. Then the window of direct DB management will open. Next you need to select the “Export” link and send everything to the archive and click the “OK” button. After that, the save path on the user’s computer is indicated. Now you need to perform the procedure of importing the old database to the new hosting. This procedure is similar to export, through database management,

STEP 3

We transfer the code of pages and scripts to another hosting. To do this, you need to connect to the old resource via ftp protocol using one of the many programs. Next, copy all files from the www folder to your computer, and then you need to perform the reverse procedure for the new provider.

And the final touch in the “big move” of the site is the indication of new data that will allow you to connect to the database in the source code of the old site. Depending on the CMS site, such information may be in a specific configuration file. Here you need to change the password to the database, address, username and site name.

WHAT IS FILE HOSTING?

The reputation of any site directly depends on availability at any time interval without the slightest expectation from all visitors. Optimally choose a paid file hosting and not fall into the trap provider, then optimally ensure the operation of the Internet site or portal.

Companies that provide the best hosting solutions on the market in enough and you can say in abundance. But for a client who has a need to post his own project on the Internet, the choice can be very difficult. It would seem that it can be easier and simpler than choosing one of the similar ones? It turns out not so simple as it seems. Practically always the same range of services provided provides an opportunity for unscrupulous organizations to work in this market segment. How to distinguish a coupler from a professional? And how not to get into the tricky tariff traps?

The main criterion of reliability and quality – professional paid or free file hosting always offers clients a set of their own developments with a platform combined with the most advanced hosting provider technologies, which include a huge selection of high-speed solutions, high-quality and reliable hardware base (own), unique solutions for achieve a high level of security, flexible options for individual settings. These services will satisfy anyone, the requirements of very demanding users.

File hosting is a special service that provides the client with a place for his files and quick access to them through a special web interface, usually via the http protocol. This service allows you to conveniently distribute or download files. On a special Internet file sharing page (most often on the main one), the user uploads the necessary file to the file sharing server, after the file sharing service gives the user a generated permalink, which he can easily send via e-mail, stir on forums, blogs or send through special systems Im. By clicking on this link, almost any user can download a published file. Some services have useful affiliate programs.

FILE SHARING ALLOWS YOU TO EARN IN TWO WAYS

  • Display contextual advertising. Usually, all file servers introduce an artificial pause with advertising when users request the necessary file. Within 40-120 seconds. The user is shown forced advertising, and only then appears to download the file.
  • Sale of VIP (VIP) or premium (premium) – accounts. For a couple of tens of dollars a year, the user has the opportunity to purchase the right to download files, without advertising and without delays, with increased or full speed as many file sharing services specifically limit the download speed. Owners of a paid account also receive other benefits not available to free users, such as downloading and downloading files from multiple streams.

FREE FILE HOSTING – EARNINGS

The working scheme is about the same: the user, after registering, uploads to the server his own files that have unique URLs. Basically, the user in order to achieve maximum earnings tries to place a direct link to his file on more Internet sites. As a rule, these are special sites, as well as ICQ-mailing, spam and forums. For every hundred downloads of a unique file, paid file hosting pays the user money from two dollars, and, the larger the file, the greater the payment.
