Web Hosting:

So you’ve finally decided to open up your business to the entire world. You know you need a domain name, you know you need a beautiful, interactive website, but who will actually host your online business? Web hosting is the service providing space on the internet for websites. Once your website is created it needs to be uploaded to a web hosting service.

There are (3) different types of web hosting available and it could be a little tricky to decide which one is right for you.

Here’s a brief overview of each:

  • Shared Hosting: Shared accounts are the most basic web hosting accounts. They are the most affordable, but depending on the size and type of your business, a high-traffic site won’t fare well using shared hosting. Just think of it as a college dorm room with (4) roommates, only (1) bathroom, and all of you have an 8am class. Get the idea?
  • VPS (Virtual Private Server): VPS is the next step above shared hosting. It’s still a shared account, but you have a few things items that are strictly yours. These are disk space, an operating system, and RAM. While this is still an affordable choice, you still have to share some resources with the other company sharing the parent server such as server load, or memory.
  • A Dedicated Server: This service is completely yours. You have no one else competing for your resources. If you anticipate that you’ll have a high-traffic website, this could be the best choice for you since you’ll have access to vast resources, complete control of your server, and the ability to add more RAM when needed. Keep in mind this is the most expensive of the (3), and you’ll want to make sure you’ve done all your homework to see if this will work best with your budget.

Frequently asked questions

1What kind of hosting does EZ IT Media provide?
EZ IT Media provides dedicated and semi-dedicated hosting from a custom built server located in Canada. Here are the server specifications:
CPU: Core 2 Quad 2.66GHz
RAM: 8GB DDR3

2Dedicated hosting is expensive, do I really need it?
Here at EZ IT Media we understand that cost efficiency is important that's why we offer semi-dedicated server plans at affordable prices. Different from VPS, semi-dedicated servers give you all of the benefits of a dedicated server but at a fraction of the price. All of our hosting plans come with our custom Cpanel and proprietary NGINX SEO serving technology.
3What is this proprietary NGINX SEO web serving technology?
NGINX is an open source web serving technology that is responsible for serving the data of web page requests to browsers such as Firefox or Chrome. Most hosting providers use a serving technology called Apache which is fine for normal web hosting. NGINX has many features that go above and beyond what Apache can do. We've customized these features in NGINX to not only maximize page load speed but do so in a way that looks unique each time the page loads. LEARN MORE
4How reliable is EZ IT Media's hosting?
At EZ IT Media our servers have been running nonstop without issue for 2 years. We are constantly fine tuning and tweaking our servers to be the fastest and most reliable on the market. Many providers give an up-time guarantee, especially with shared hosting because they tend to overload their servers and networks making them slow and unstable. Having slow page serves can be just as bad if not worse than being completely down. Google uses page load speeds to rank pages, pages that load slow will get a lower ranking.

We hope this sheds a little light on the choices you’ll need to make when launching a new website!

Our EZ Cpanel is light years ahead of other web hosting companies

  • EZ Cpanel

    A custom Cpanel better than the rest

    The EZ Cpanel gives you access to everything you need at a glance and nothing you don’t.

    Adding multiple users is a breeze along with many other hosting functions. No annoying icons or tiny descriptions just a simple clean interface that let’s you do what you need to do.

  • QUICKLY ADD A DOMAIN NAME

    Domain names done right

    Easily add domain names and domain functions with our simple interface. There is no need to sift through settings like other Cpanels, but if you need to do more than just add a domain everything you need in in the “ADVANCED OPTIONS” tab.

  • CHANGING DOMAIN NAME SERVER SETTINGS (DNS) IS EASY

    Do you need fine grain control over your DNS setttings?

    Our Cpanel is delightfully easy to change your DNS. If you are using a custom email server or vanity Domain Name Servers making the changes you need is a piece of cake.

  • ADD EMAILS, EMAIL FORWARDERS AND AUTO-RESPONSES WITHOUT ANY HASSLE

    Easy, quick, Intuitive – That’s how it should be right?

    Unlike other Cpanels you can quickly and intuitively add an email account to a domain, and if you need to do more it’s all in the “ADVANCED OPTIONS” tab.

  • CREATE DATABASES WITH A FEW KEY STROKES

    Even if you don’t know everything

    Our interface makes it easy for you and takes out all of the guess work. And if the simple interface doesn’t have the options you want you can always go to the “ADVANCED OPTIONS” tab for total control.

  • SETUP AND RUN CRON JOBS INTUITIVELY

    Don’t know what a cron job is?

    That’s ok, you have to use it if you don’t need it. Most hosting companies bury their cron job features or hide them completely altogether. Cron jobs allow you to automate server functions and code on your website so you don’t have to waste valuable time doing everything manually.

  • WORRY FREE TOTALLY AUTOMATED BACKUPS

    Worried you might have lost important data?

    Worry no more, our backups have been backing up everything involved in your account from the day it was created without any need for you to do anything. Our normal backup queue is 2 but if you need of want more we can change it for you.
