a few reasons why we believe we stand our from the
crowd. If you are in the market for hosting, ask the
other hosts to them provide you with these very
With every account order from BlueWho.com you receive 5
IP address. These are allotted to your account as you
need them and in order to be incompliance with ARIN
rules each ip must be justified. The first two IPs will
be used for your nameservers. If you or one of your
customers requires to install their own secure
certificate then they will need a dedicated IP for it.
Most hosting companies only provide you with two or less
IPs, but we want to help our customers grow.
Run your domains off your own IP rather than the server
On must shared servers all domains run off the main
server IP address. This can cause problems with security
and DOS attacks, for that reason we do things a bit
different. Domains under your account will be run off
your second IP, thus shielding you from such attacks.
We allow our resellers to oversell both your space and
bandwidth. Why is this good. If a host does not allow
overselling then you will only be able to divide your
1000Mb account into 10 x 100 Mb accounts, even if these
ten accounts only use 75Mb between them. With a
BlueWho.com 1000Mb account you can create as many 100Mb
accounts as you wish provided the total amount USED does
not go over 1000Mb. Overselling is important as if you
are selling hosting most of your customers will only use
a small proportion of their allotted resources.
Ability to grow.
If your account goes over its allowed bandwidth, we do
not suspend it like most hosts. If this happens it means
that some of your websites have become successful – we
do not punish you for being successful! Rather what we
do is monitor your bandwidth usage for the month, if you
have gone over for the month we will encourage you to
upgrade your account but will not charge you for
overages the first time it happens. Remember, we at
BlueWho.com reply o you for our existence, we want you
to grow and be successful.
Shared SSL is a system we employ where by all users on a
server will have access to a secure certificate. This
certificate is shared among all users on the server.
While we would advise a successful e-commerce site to
purchase its own SSL certificate, Shared SSL is a great
NO COST solution when starting out or when testing a
site. This service is available to all users at no cost.
SSH is a way to communicate with a Linux server. It is
essential to have SHH access to a server in order to
host a website, but SSH gives you much more control over
your actions and enables you to do thinks much faster
than FTP or CPanel. Some hosts do not allow SSH due to
paranoia over security, however, with advances in SSH
technology SSH has become very secure.
We will enable SSH access for any domain, if it is for
use by the owner of the main account. As you grow you
may want to learn about the Linux environment, without
SSH it is impossible to do so. Again we want you to
grow. We want to help yon on your learning curve
So, some questions to ask other hosts:
How many IPs come with an account?
Are my domains (other than the main domain) run
off the server IP or an IP dedicated to me?
