Internet Presence: Reseller Hosting

This post is briefly talking about what the benefits of a Reseller Hosting account are. Like we mentioned in the previous post, a shared hosting account is great if you are the owner of multiple websites and/or manage websites for others. This is useful for customers you may have who do not want to deal with setting up e-mails and all the administration that comes with a website.

In essence, Reseller Hosting gives you more control and more resources than Shared Hosting. Think of Reseller Hosting as a parental figure to Shared Hosting. As a reseller, you’re allowed to create and manage multiple Shared Hosting accounts, with the intention of selling them to your clients.

What is Reseller Hosting ?

Reseller Hosting is a type of web hosting that allows you (the reseller) to purchase a hosting provider’s resources wholesale and resell them to your clients for a profit. Ideal for web developers, web design firms or web hosting entrepreneurs, Reseller Hosting allows you to create your own branded hosting service and your own pricing structure.

The reseller hosting is much more expensive, but if you have a number of potential customers lined up already or have a solid business plan, you are good to go. Maybe starting with the smallest account and upgrade later. We do not use a Reseller Accounts as we do manage the websites ourselves. It all depends on how you want to manage your websites and probably how these shall be managed.

10 Killer Tips for Taking Street Photos at Night

There are many reasons why some photographers like taking street photos at night. Of course, the first and most obvious is the fact that the street becomes more alive.

And this is not just because more people go out at night, but also because the night brings a more dramatic, extraordinary effect to otherwise simple scenes. This is true especially for busy streets like those you see in cities.

Give your Analog Camera a Second Life!

Give a second life to your vintage analog photo camera, take it out from the shelf or box and start shooting digital photos and video!

The first low-cost digital back for your 35mm camera. For those who always wanted to have a “hybrid” camera working with photographic films or in digital mode.

Use your old analog camera, which probably is lost somewhere inside a box or ended-up in your small “personal museum” taking a lot of dust! We’re now in the digital era and are ready to give a second life to it with the only low-cost digital back available on the market!

Four years have passed since the first prototype of I’m Back®35 was realized through a simple 3D printer. Many believed in this project and supported us since the beginning. And thanks to all our backers I’m Back®35 became true. It’s also thanks to the massive feedback from our supporter and together with hard work that I’m Back®35 is evolving and improved significantly since the first version.

We now are proud to present to you the new “I’m Back®35” edition, which brings with it great changes and not only a completely new design, inspired by the old “motor drivers” but a revised and modern shape.

The main innovation nevertheless, is the software, that gives now the possibility to take photos with the MANUAL mode, leaving the user full control of the shutter speed and the diaphragm aperture of the camera. I’m Back®35 will then record the images as it was set through the analog camera!

Internet Presence: Shared Hosting

In the previous posts, we talked about registering your domain and about setting up a hosted WordPress account. Now, if you are not sure if WordPress is what you want, you can start setting up a shared hosting account, probably one that allows you to setup up to 3 websites to start with or a shared hosting account where you can setup unlimited number of websites, under one cPanel account.

If you haven’t secured your domain name, you can search the name you have in mind by using the form below:

The main reason why we selected the Shared Web Hosting account is, that we do not plan to offer re-seller accounts and it fits our needs perfectly. We can setup personalized email accounts and select the web applications that fits our needs.

It comes with CPanel which allows you to completely manage your website, setting up email accounts, install applications and much more.

What is a Shared Web Hosting account?

Shared Web Hosting is an entry-level type of web hosting where one physical server hosts multiple websites (and often hosts hundreds of users). Since each user gets (“shares”) a section of that individual server where they can host their website files, this keeps costs low. Here users share system resources on-demand, receiving a percentage of databases, disk space, CPU, RAM as well as email and FTP accounts. Other resources include the single MySQL server, Apache server, and mail server. Considered the most cost-effective option, Shared Server Hosting offers enough resources for any startup, local business, or personal website.

A shared hosting account offered by Namecheap comes with Softaculous with tons of web applications that may fit your needs. Besides WordPress, you can find Helpdesk applications, shopping cart solutions, online photo galleries and much more.

In our next post, we will talk about if a reseller hosting account would be a good fit for you. It should help to to decide what option works best for you as it depends on how many websites you want to setup, if you manage them all by yourself, or if you want to offer a web hosting service for others.

Domain Name Registration: Bait and Switch

Hello my friends – this is just a short article in regards being tricked by internet hosting companies. I have registered a domain name with a Swiss company for over a decade. Now, out of the blue, they sent me a confirmation e-mail: Oh, by the way, we have just upgraded your account with some stuff you don’t need, but don’t worry, just fork over more money…. . It seems that the reason why they went to that length shows that they probably have miscalculated their investments and want their customers to foot the bills.

If this happens to you and you don’t agree this ‘Bait and Switch’ approach, which I don’t know if it is legal, transfer your domain name as fast as you can as you don’t know what the next surprise is when you take the bait.

I transferred my domain, although for that domain it was a manual process, but I the transaction was completed in no time. For some domain names, such, .ch it is a manual process and I can assist you, if needed.

How to Take Pictures of Starry Skies


Getting great shots of the night sky, though, involves so much more than taking out your camera, waiting until stars fill the night sky, and then shooting away like there’s no tomorrow.

Internet Presence: WordPress Hosting

Easy WordPress

As described in our previous post, you need to make sure you secure a compelling new domain name that is in line with the services or information you want to offer to your customers, followers or fans. If you haven’t followed the previous task, you can still search for a good domain name using this search:

Now, after security and registering your domain name, you need to think about what content you want to offer and what publishing solution you want to use. It all depends on what your plans are. Most of the small business websites, such as dentists, car repair shops, photographers and others use WordPress. More about this later. The reason why we mention this at this stage is, that depending on your needs, you need to make sure that the hosting company you want to use offers the services you need at an affordable price.
