a word that resonates the most in the spectrum of web hosting. While some
people doubt the credibility of the server, others consider it to be one of the
best Web hosting servers available in the market. Thanks to the high-end
security and data privacy as provided, VPS is the first choice when it comes to
protecting vital information.
You must be thinking what makes VPS servers more secure as compared to other shared hosting services, or why you should choose VPS, right?
have a quick run-through at what VPS actually is and what segregates it from
others in the industry.
VPS or Virtual Private Server as the name suggests offers a virtual server space unique to every user. On the contrary, on a shared server, there are thousands of users working on a single server. This, however, is vulnerable to data hacks and information leaks. To prevent the same, companies restructured the form of hosting, replacing the shared ones with VPS.
Why should you select VPS Hosting?
If you walk down the feature list of VPS, you would be amazed at all it offers. From flexibility to compatibility, virtual private servers enhance the overall speed and performance of the hosting service. But this is not something that is different from others. Of course, VPS has been designed embedding greater resources, higher power, and full control, one more thing that keeps it one step ahead of the other hosting services is its secured infrastructure.
VPSs are segmented into separate blocks, each VPS runs on a unique environment
and does not experience any kind of overlap. This implies that no matter which
web service you choose to run on the server or which files you choose to store,
the information remains confined within the walls …
Social networks have taken off on
a massive scale. With the rise of social networks a new search engine algorithm
needs to be developed that is able to scour through the massive amount of data
generated on a minute by minute basis. Traditional search engines (such as
Google) have limited capabilities when it comes to scouring the internet for
updated information. Companies have to submit their sites so that they are
found and then Google indexes the site depending on the amount of relevant
material that references the site (a vague explanation – but an explanation
none the less). This is not really considered real time search as the
information is built upon over the course of the website’s life.
Google have long been the masters
of traditional search methodology as it relates to the internet. The company
wants to expand its horizons to offer support for real time search – that is
the ability to catch relevant information that is specific to any niche the
second it is posted somewhere on the web. Although problems arise from this –
keywords are important but how do we know if the keywords that are relevant to
the information that is caught is from a trusted or authoritative source? Well,
this is one of the problems that Google is working on.
One method that they have talked
about using is to couple the data with the person who has written it – for
instance, if the person who has written the data has a high volume of friends
or visitors to their profile (as it pertains to social networking) then there
is a good chance that the information is going to be somewhat important or
relevant. Although, this is a bit of a bandaid fix and while it may work for
Probability-based mathematics is
based on the best odds or matches rather than using switches that are
represented as binary numbers (ones and zeros). The central processing unit on
the computer that you use (unless you are from the future and already have a
processor that uses probability-based processing) uses binary. It counts,
computes and reads binary – numbers that are made up using a range of ones and
zeros. Sounds like a lot to take in? Relax; it is pretty easy (in theory). You
see, we have a range of number systems – not just a base 10 system (that is
numbers represented with zero all the way to ten). Binary is essentially a base
2 number system as it only uses zero and one. All numbers (well virtually
anything really) can be represented as a collection of zeros and ones.
This is how binary processing
works. Computer chips are developed that process collections of ones and zeros.
Software is written then converted in machine code that the processing unit in
the computer understands. So in order to really take computer processing
forward we need to develop hardware (namely computer chips) that read more than
just a collection of ones and zeros (binary). That is where Lyric Semiconductor
comes into the equation – they have developed what is likely to be the first
computer chip that processes using probability rather than binary.
This enables the chip to process
data based on probability or chance rather than a stream of binary. This
promises to produce faster processing components that are also more energy (and
data) efficient. If you consider that the processor is able to process blocks
of straight data based on probability or chance rather than what are
essentially flags represented by a stream of binary than it starts to …
Today’s 64-bit computer systems
bring us a lot of computer power. Over the past few years, 32-bit systems have
become the standard. They have given us great computing capability over the
past few years, but it’s clear that the progress made by 64-bit computers makes
it a very attractive computer.
Even though these advancements
are quite remarkable, there is a lot of confusion about just what this big
brother of the 32-bit computer system can and cannot do. No, it isn’t twice as
fast. No, it isn’t impossible to find software that runs on it. So, what is the
big deal about 64-bit? Furthermore, what does 64-bit mean, anyway? This article
will answer these noteworthy questions.
It All Starts with 1 bit
All computers, of course, work on
digital platforms. Every program you open and every other kind of action you
take on your computer moves a pile of 0’s and 1’s around. The sensational and
remarkable things your computer does for you are possible because of its
ability to add series of very large numbers that consist of 0’s and 1’s.
One digit in the realm of
computer technology can only be a 0 or a 1. We call this a bit. In our everyday
world, digits consist of 10 numbers each. In other words, we use a decimal
system. Computers use digits consisting of 2 numbers; a 1 or a 0. This system
is what we know as a digital system.
The largest 8 digit number in a
decimal system is 99,999,999, or 1 short of 100 million. The largest number
yielded by 8 digits in the digital world is 256. 8 digit digital numbers are
really popular in computer technology; they are called bytes.
Byte Sized Digits
In one Hertz of an operation, a
32-bit computer is …
We have all sat at an office
computer or library computer and experienced a lightening fast response. Or
perhaps you had this experience upon firing up a brand new computer. You click
on a website and its there in an instant. Once you have had that experience it
leaves you wanting more.
If you’re among the many sitting
at home wishing they had a speedy computer your not alone. There are a number
of little things that add up to a huge difference in overall computer speed.
These aspects are not complicated once understood and the good news is it’s not
expensive either. Obviously some parts to the equation are more important that
others but if you take nothing else from this article understand that your
computer can only run as fast as its weakest link.
The first bit of good news is
that you can start replacing these weak links and make some great upgrades to
your computer system without spending a mint. Usually refurbished components
are not the first viable idea that comes to mind. However with recent leaps in
testing technology refurbished computer parts are often just as good if not
better than new. This new testing technology is so good that all major
manufacturers are now selling refurbished units with great warranties. This has
never before been the case.
So what is the weakest link of
most computers you’re probably asking yourself? Typically the weakest link is
the amount of RAM the computer has. RAM is a form of memory your computer uses
that allows multiple functions to occur without it bogging down to a snails
pace. As a rule of thumb you need a minimum of 2 gigs of RAM. Ideally you
should target 3 or more. The good news is these RAM chips are …
