In 1958, the government was considering the annexation of Alaska and Hawaii to the 48 contiguous states. This ca

 

used high school junior Robert Heft to design a flag to accommodate the potential additions as part of a school project. His history teacher, Stanley Pratt, didn’t think much of the design and gave it a B-!! Heft decided to submit the

design to Congress and convinced Mr. Pratt to raise his grade if the flag was accepted. On August 21th of the following year, President Eisenhower selected Heft’s design out of 1,500 submissions and called him personally to give him the good news!

Robert Heft’s original flag has now flown over EVERY state capitol building and 88 different U.S. e

mbassies. It is the only flag in our history to have flown over the White House during the administrations of five different presidents!

Easter is a religious holiday based on the resurrection of Jesus, the exact date of which was not recorded In light of this, no generally accepted date for Easter was fixed, and the date was based on the calendar However, the decision of which calendar to use was a point of contention The Julian calendar was the solar-based calendar of the Roman Empire since 45 BC, but the Lunar calendar (which was Jewish) had been in place for 2,000 before that Because of the differences in the calendars, Easter was celebrated on different dates.

In AD 325, a conclave of priests and bishops met at Christianity’s first Ecumenical Council in Nicea (present-day Turkey) to decide an array of topics, one of which was the date for Easter The different Church groups were represented and a decision was eventually reached It was decided that, throughout the Church, Easter would be celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after March 21 Different regions, however, applied slightly different rules, some describing March 21 as the vernal equinox (i e , the Spring equinox, when the length of night and day are equal because the sun passes over the equator), although the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after March 21 is now the accepted formula Applying this formula, Easter Sunday must fall between March 22 and April 25, inclusive Easter Sunday hasn’t fallen on March 22 since 1818, and will next fall on that date in 2285 Similarly, it hasn’t fallen on April 25 since 1943 and won’t again until 2038.

I am going to get this blog back online…..shortly..

Lets look at the possibilities of why someone under this sky would have a website.

1. Personal Website

2. Blog

3. corporate

4… and a zillion other good reasons.

And when you have decided to have a website, you would either go for the free hosting or paid hosting depending on the depth or the requirement of the hosting. We find a webhost the cheapest the most competitive. and we host there. Now when we host a site, it is supposed to receive hits. when we start receiving hits the energy to make the site better and better boils in you.

Creating a website better could start from from designing from borrowed ideas, if you are not much of a designer and code if you are not much of a programmer. And finally we get all the programming and designing perfect to our liking and much to the dislike to others. Of course you will agree that if we had to listen to the world, we would be walking around naked!

The host as I said earlier is the most competitive, providing with you ample space, emails more than what a mid-size corporate would require, your eyes pop with the delicacy. Enough.. Enough… Then I go and host my website, but I am not getting hits, I am not very happy at this. hmmm… not to be sad, it is always this way for a starter is the advice, I keep posting and posting, Google, Yahoo takes notice, they bring in traffic, and slowly over 2 years I have enough traffic. I am happy….With the hits my website becomes tooooo slow, and I write promptly to the web host.

AAAHHH…my web host is not happy, here comes the equation. you are not supposed to have a more than 50 connections outside, I said I do not. Well then probably the slow site is due to shared hosting. here is the email correspondence from them

Dear Sir or Madam,Thank you for contacting hosting support.

Unfortunately, we were unable to duplicate an issue with the speed of your hosting account right at this time. In a shared hosting environment, the server resources are shared among many customers, and therefore there may be times where the site doesn’t work as quickly as you would like. This is just one of the side affects of sharing resources. It also looks like your site may be pulling information from other sources as well. Depending on the network capacity to these sources, and the traffic they are experiencing, it can affect the speed which your site loads.

If you would like to alleviate the possibility that other customers’ may be slowing down your web experience, we offer Dedicated and Virtual Dedicated servers, where you will share resources with less customers – and in a Dedicated environment, you would share with no other customers. This may be more attractive to you if you are unhappy with the speed and dedicated power that your shared hosting account receives.

Please let us know if we can help you in any other way.

Sincerely,

xxxx.

The above emai tells me that my site is being slow because other users on the same server may be slowing down my website, I wonder how I am able to solve that issue? I guess the web host has no idea what they are talking about. Here is another email from them regarding the same issue.

Customer Inquiry
Hello,My website xxxxxx is down and it says MySQL server has gone away.

Thanks

xxxx

Now the above email is asking me how I can show the web host support team to slow my website, or reproduce the slow website on their side, I just cannot help thinking on how I can do it, probably tag the website down in the Sahara desert and try and pull it? How can I reproduce that, so I am not able to reproduce, therefore there is no support. This is simply interesting to the point that they are not at all good. And they ask me if there are any errors, yes i provided them with the error that “MySQL server has gone away”, gone away where for brunch?

Here is an email of me writing to them explaining my thoughts of the above email

Dear xxxx,Thank you for contacting Online Support.

It is possible the shared hosting server does not offer the amount of power you need to run your site. As previously mentioned we do have alternatives to shared hosting in the Virtual Dedicated or Dedicated Environment. We have reviewed this issue with our Advanced Hosting Support and are unable to duplicate the issue. You may wish to adjust the design of your site to optimize database quires and external connections as this can often contribute to ‘site slowness’.

For more information or to purchase a Virtual Dedicated server you can visit here.

Customer Inquiry
Hello,Ofcourse shared hosting means multiple web hosting on a server, but it does not mean slow loading of pages.

Thanks
xxxx

Before I explain the email, I will give you a pic of my stats, I get roughly 2000 hits a day. This should be sufficient for shared hosting. It seems they cannot handle this load, they ask me to move over to virtual or dedicated environment. Why should I do that when the website I run do not require such a hosting.

I am tired of explaining to them, here is something for you to smile

Dear Sir/Madam,

Our Network Center has recently notified us of an issue on your hosting account.

Recently your site has caused a server CPU over-utilization. This caused several sites within the server to experience load failures. We attempted to resolve the high server load by moving the account to a different server, but the account is still causing high server loads. Your account ‘xxxx’ has been disabled to so that our server levels would return to normal.

If you would like us to reinstate the account then please resolve the over-utilization issues or move to a dedicated server.

Please contact us if you have any further issues.

Regards,
Advanced Hosting Support

I am tired, provide me with your response.  You all may be wondering who the web host is, its none other than GoDaddy

1. The quality and stability of the hosting company. Search the internet to check if they have got a rating and review.

2. Space provided at least 5 GB

3. The no limit for the mysql db, even if it is one database. Remember the database increases as time passes.

4. The number of consecutive connections permitted, at least 10. In the even digg decides to kiss you 😀

5. If you are going for a personal website then look below $6.

6. The bandwidth provided is for decoration. You will not need the said bandwidth unless you are having over 20,000 hits a month, if this is the case the you make enough money from google adsense to fund a dedicated server.

7. Dont buy the gimmick of 12 months of pre-paid hosting and you get 12% off, as you might change your web host after 4 months, if you are not satisfied with the current.

8. The number of emails does not play a role if you are a small business. Web hosts say they will provide you with 1000 emails. Just a question, what are you going to do with this many emails anyway?

9. Some web host provide the same price for linux and windows hosting, check the features and go for what is convenient.

10. The support response will be 12 or 12 hours or minutes, but when you really need the support you will never get one.

11. Do not fall for the SSL certificate shit, as you will not require them unless you are doing credit card transaction. Assuming you are doing one too, you will have a link clicked to forward the details to a page that will have a SSL certificate.
