Today, let’s talk about the choice of website space . The Website space is the cornerstone of Chinese website design. All the work and efforts behind the webmaster are built on this foundation stone, so choosing a good space is very important for the future development of the website.
IDC industry is now booming, the competition is very fierce, the space quality is uneven, novice accidentally easily pit, many times China website builder have to worry about the choice of site in space, or do not know their own websites need what kind of website space, let me take you to analyze the website space basis.
1, choose space according to the type of Web site
It’s not easy to run a web site. If the Chinese website doesn’t have a good location, it’s hard to survive on the Internet without a good operation strategy. Before buying space, we first have to make a position on the type of the website, and put forward the corresponding demand, so that we can make it easier to carry out the next work.
1, Portal type
Portal type website generally requires higher amount of website. First, a database is necessary. Secondly, portal website needs a large website space, because portals website is basically data update.
Basically, portals website is like this. There is a large website space and a database suitable for their backstage language. This may require servers or VPS hosts.
2, enterprise type
In general, enterprise type websites are used for commercial display, display their company’s products or make other people to know company image. So a general company will not choose too much website space, because the products are usually those, or the new products are not many, the relative data volume will not be large.
Generally speaking, an enterprise website should have a management system to locate its website space according to its own website. If there is any, it still needs to buy a website space with database, but the database will not be very large. If your website doesn’t have a management system, you can even choose to purchase a website without database, but sometimes there are different strategies for different web design in China.
- Personal website
The characteristic of personal website is small and beautiful website, personal stationmaster is limited because of time and energy, maybe a lot of friends are at the same time taking into account the website. So please don’t go for what big and full website. Like news information network and community dating network, the best thing is not to touch it. Small and beautiful is the accuracy of positioning.
- Select space according to the website program
Now the network space on the market can be divided into two major categories: windows and Linux, which are actually the different operating systems.
If the building program you use is ASP, we recommend using windows. The program of ASP is usually combined with access database, and it can have good performance in Windows system. But now the ASP program has not much, now most of the webmaster use program is written in PHP, which is now the mainstream, such as dream, phpcms etc..
The PHP program is best running under the Linux system. Combined with MySQL, it can achieve very good performance. Although it can run PHP on windows, there will be a lot of difference in performance. So if you are using PHP’s site program, then we must use the Linux system’s host. Now basically all the space vendors will provide the space for the Linux system.
- Select space according to the capacity of the website and the load of the website
Now, we have to determine what kind of Web site you want to do, and how much space and load you need. The number of pictures, the size, the amount of information, the FLASH effect of the website, the video and so on, all these are the contents of the website.
The fact that the site space capacity is medium a measure of site space is not the bigger the better, the more large space needs more cost, about 80% enterprise web content is only tens of megabytes, so 100 to 200 MB of web space has been used enough.
If it is a small business station, then a 100M, a very basic space to meet the needs. Because the general procedures of the enterprise station are not large and the data are less. This kind of Web site is the lowest for space.
If it’s an industry portal station, shopping mall will be much more demanding. Generally, more than 1G space is needed to meet the needs and development of websites.
If we want to build a forum, the requirement for space is even higher. It needs not only the size of space but also the load and speed of space.
If our website is much more complicated and content, we need to choose a larger website space. AI digital suggests that you can choose different website space according to the content of the website.
In short, after determining their site type, then choose a suitable space, not a waste of money and can meet the development of the website. This is particularly important for a lot of stationmaster with limited initial budgets.
- Choose space according to the user market
Before we choose our website space, we also have to determine who we should be looking for. For foreign users? Domestic users? Doing business in China?
This affects our selection of virtual hosts.
When we are faced with foreigner or Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan users, we can directly choose overseas website space, because overseas website space can not only be archival, but also overseas website space can make our website free from all kinds of restrictions in China.
But if we face the domestic users and need ICP license, we will not be able to do that. We must pass the Ministry of industry’s filing system, and our domain name can be properly analyzed to show to the users.
For this reason, many webmasters will be hesitant whether to use domestic space or to use foreign space. This problem depends on the specific situation of the webmaster. It can be said that both domestic and foreign space have their own advantages.
The biggest advantage of domestic hosts is that the speed of access is generally faster than that of foreign hosts. Although many foreign hosts also have very good access speed, if the speed requirements for websites are particularly high, they can only choose domestic hosts. Unfortunately, the domestic host has a fatal shortcoming, and it is also a problem for many stationmaster. That is, the website needs to be put on record with ICP license. Because the ICP license is especially troublesome and the cycle is longer, many stationmaster give up the domestic space to the foreign host.
After years of development in foreign space, all kinds of technology and experience are relatively mature, and the space for purchase will be guaranteed. The biggest advantage of foreign space is that it doesn’t need to record. Its cost performance is very high. Foreign space is usually limited to size, unlimited traffic and unlimited station establishment. That is to say, a space can do multiple websites and bind multiple domains. For stationmaster with many websites, this undoubtedly saves a large amount of start. Domestic space is generally only a website, up to two to three, but the price of this space is already very high.
- Select space according to website traffic
A website will be visited every day, and the site space of our site is limited to traffic. The flow of the month is controlled. When our traffic is running out, our website will not be able to visit. How can we know how much traffic we need for our website?For digital marketing in China,you must find out your website traffic.
Here is a simple formula for calculating the flow of Web sites:
Monthly data flow of a web site =30 days * average per page size * average page number per person * number of visitors per day
For example, a website showing enterprise products is averaging 600K-800K (several pictures) per page, because advertising is viewed by 100-200 people per day, averaging 5 pages per person, so monthly traffic is:
30 days *0.8M*5*200=24000M=24G
According to the above formula, you can calculate the amount of traffic that your company needs every month.
- what kind of website space dealer?
After determining the space demand, there is another big problem. That is, whether there are lots of space providers in the country or abroad, how can we find a suitable space for so many space providers? The following is to say what you should look at when you choose a space dealer.
Stability is the most important element of space, especially for website China SEO effect. Many friends may ask, I have not used it. How do I know that space is unstable? Although we can’t experience it directly, we have a lot of other ways.
First, look at the brand space business qualifications, large space to provide space will be more secure, more well-known space provider selection is an effective way to reduce the day after all the trouble. Although the price may be slightly higher, but the space is guaranteed, it is comfortable to use, and also worth it.
Good access speed is an important part of the user experience, we choose space when do not covet cheap buy speed is very slow. When you buy space, you can access the site of the following customer case on the space dealer’s Web site so that you can have a more intuitive understanding. Of course, you can also go to the Ping website, although this method is not very accurate to reflect the speed of the site, but the speed of space can have a general grasp.
The method is: start – run – enter “CMD” – enter Ping “URL or IP”, the smaller the time value is, the faster.
- After sale service
Bought space is not finished, after that we may have to contact customer service to help us solve some problems, so we have to value the space provided by customer service. We can see whether the customer service system is complete on the space business website and if the response is quick. In this regard, the foreign space merchants do better, many provide 24 hours online customer service, many domestic space operators need to learn and learn more.
