Should I have Shared Web hosting, a VPS, or a Dedicated server?

When it comes to hosting your website or application, you will need to buy hosting from a hosting company.  The 3 main types of hosting that are very popular are a VPS (Virtual Private Server), a Dedicated Server, or Shared Web Hosting.  Now, a Virtual Private Server aka VPS is a Virtual machine on a dedicated server.  Think of it as you are running a virtual machine on your computer, whether is VMWare, VirtualBox, or Hyper V Manager.  They do the same, except usually assign a dedicated IP to the Virtual Machine and have it on a powerful dedicated server that can handle dozens of Virtual Machines.  A dedicated server is a server usually in a datacenter, but can also be in your own house, which is usually somewhat powerful, powerful enough to handle multiple heavyweight applications and host multiple websites.  If you buy shared web hosting, whether its from HostGator, Kavorti, BlueHost, or more, your website is hosted on the same server (it can be a VPS or dedicated server) as dozens, hundreds, thousands, or even millions of other websites.  They all share the same resources and that is why shared hosting is usually cheap and easy to manage.  Most shared hosting providers provide a few different control panels, Plesk, cPanel, CyberPanel, TinyCP, and more.  If you want to host just a website whether its wordpress, a static website, or any other PHP or JS app then we recommend shared hosting.  If you want to host a application which requires its own ports and system files, we recommend a VPS or a Docker Container.  Docker Containers can even be ran your friends VPS or your own VPS.  More information about Docker Containers can be found in one of our previous blog posts here.

If you absolutely need dedicated resources and are hosting very sensitive information which must have the lowest risk of getting compromised, we recommend a dedicated server.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link: The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
