Web Hosting Companies in Tanzania
Internet has become one of the major sources of information and if you have something to share the best to way is to make this information available by making a website. When you have made a website you have to hire the services of a web hosting company to make your website available for world on the Internet. Web hosting is required so that your website is accessible anywhere around the world at any time.
Tanzania is among the flourishing nations in the use of technology and Internet. According to a latest survey there are 6.1 million users of Internet in Tanzania. The developments in the field of telecommunication have been slow and rather late but recent reforms have improved the situation. As a result of better infrastructure, many Tanzanian based web hosting companies have started providing services. There are various providers having different services and price ranges. The choice of web host depends on many factors like price, security, reliability, etc. according to the needs and situation. Sometimes price is the biggest factor when you are low on budget and you have to choose the cheapest provider and as a result you may have to sacrifice the security. In other cases security and reliability of data is most important and you for the best option not worrying about the price.
Extreme Web Technologies (www.extremewebtechnologies.com ) is the biggest web hosting service provider in Tanzania having around 32% market share. There are different service plans available offering different price ranges and service and you can choose according to your budget and needs. If you are hosting your personal website and don’t have many extensive needs of data then the best plan for you is the personal plan which has an annual price of 50$ and in return you get 250 MB space and 10 GB bandwidth. There are other plans also available if you want…...

Web Distribution

...I- NATURE OF THE PROBLEM A) THE DISTRIBUTION ON THE WEB The web distribution commonly known as e-commerce or e-comm, is the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. Electronic commerce draws on such technologies as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web at least at one point in the transaction's life-cycle, although it may encompass a wider range of technologies such as e-mail, mobile devices and telephones as well. The beginnings and development of electronic commerce are intimately linked with the evolution and spread of the Internet. For nearly a decade, the Internet sector recorded impressive growth figures but it is interesting to return to the beginning of e-commerce. Initially, the lack of central authority able to define rules and sanction let fear some form of anarchy on the Internet and greatly hindered the development of commercial activities on the network. It was formed, almost naturally, a sort of code of conduct which has long regulated the behavior of the network. Using the network for commercial purposes has long been rejected on these behaviors. There are also other factors explaining a delay in the arrival of e-commerce. Indeed, the main language in the......

Hosting Major Sport Events

...Hosting Major Sport Event Hosting a major sporting event can give many economic, social and cultural benefits. However, the costs of hosting the event can also be quite high. Advantages Raise profile of city / country Raising the profile of a city can lead to lasting economic benefits. For example, cities which host the Olympics can be assured of a persistent increase in recognition and tourism. Barcelona, Sydney, Beijing have all seen this from hosting the Olympics. For a country like China with a controversial human rights record, hosting a major sporting event can be a way to gain greater international acceptance. When South Africa hosted the Rugby World Cup and later the Football World Cup, it was a defining moment in highlighting the new ‘post-apartheid’ South Africa. This raised profile can be important for giving economic benefits, such as, attracting tourists and business investment. The importance of this point depends on the particular city. For South Africa, the World Cup made a big difference to perceptions of South Africa. For a city like London, which already has a very strong reputation, hosting the Olympics will be less influential. However, even hosting the Commonwealth Games can be beneficial for a city like Manchester, which benefited from hosting games, despite persistent rain! Long Term Investment A significant benefit is the long-term investment which comes from preparing for a major event. The city / country will have a legacy of improved......

Web Security

...Web Security World Wide Web When the internet hit popularity, many people were not aware what the first three letters meant in the url of a Website. It meant World Wide Web, but now that has been taken to a new level. The initial implication was that anything in the world could be accessed through a computer. The information was accessed by typing a word or phrase in the filed box. World Wide Web has taken on a new meaning and it has made people very angry, cautious and mistrusting. What has been happening is the people that are well versed in the subject of technology are using their knowledge maliciously. The problem is not only worldwide; it is beginning to increase by leaps and bounds. Website developers now have to implement security measures to protect user’s personal information. An article (Neville-Neil, 2007), explains that there are three “…main problems that people are trying to solve by building secure Web applications:” * The first problem most people encounter is authentication. How does the application know who is accessing it and what they are allowed to access? * Problem two is the ability of an attacker to trick users, once they have authenticated, into doing work on the attacker’s behalf. I call this problem request forgery. * The last problem is the risk involved in hosting UGC (user-generated content) on a Web site. The problems listed above are now prompting Web developers to build secure Websites. Of course, developers......

However the World Wide Web and the Internet are two completely different things, they have both come a long way from the origins of CERN, being designed on the back of a napkin. How does the Internet really work though? What happens when we connect to the Internet? What are the differences between the Internet and the World Wide Web? Read on to find out more. (Brooke Telecom, 2014) Internet Service Provider (ISP) Internet Service Provider (ISP) An Internet service provider is basically a company that will provide you with your Internet connection, whether that is to your house, your business or anywhere else.

Importance of Hosting the World Cup

...Importance of hosting the World Cup Ever since its conception in 1930, the World Cup was mainly hosted in the American and European countries. However, Africa and Asia won the 2002 and 2010 bids respectively, while Brazil hosted the 2014 tournament. Countries spend millions bidding for the world cup and hosting the event in the name of it being an investment and an opportunity to boost a nation’s profile. However, this expectation is not always the case because the returns accruing from the intended ‘economic boost’ are far outweighed by the costs. Host states have to substantially alter its budget to fund the event and the costly preparations at the expense of national issues. The sporting tournament is expected to accrue a number of benefits to a host country's economy, including an influx of tourism, creation of employment, improved infrastructure and a higher global profile. A country does gain from hosting the tournament, but not as much as anticipated. Consider South Africa, for instance, which hosted the 2010 World Cup. At the time, the state had a number of national issues to resolve such as poverty, crime and drugs. Instead, $ 4.1 billion was refocused from its priorities towards a short term sporting event at the expense of creating employment, facilitating education, funding sustainable infrastructure and mitigating social problems. In preparation for the 2010 sporting tournament, South Africa bore the costs of upgrading and constructing its facilities in......

Web Server

...A web server is a crucial element in most company’s infrastructure. Every corporate company has to have a web presence. Some companies use it for marketing, some use it for sales, and some use it just to share information. It doesn’t matter why they use it, because they need it either way. Most customers want to check out products online before they decide what they want. Computers provide an easy and flexible way to research for the best products that are available for the customer. Depending on what you are going to use your web server for, you have to select an appropriate solution for yourself that will satisfy your needs. There is no “clear cut” way to create and configure a web server. If you are looking for the answer: “Ok! This is the best web server!” You are out of luck. I wish there was an easy way to figure this stuff out, but there are many questions to answer and needs to satisfy before you can declare that you have a great web server. There is a lot of information out there that will “help” you chose a solution for your company or organization. Unfortunately, I think in this case there is a little too much information available and it could be overwhelming. There is a lot of biased information available on the net. Some people say Apache is better than IIS, but it really depends on what your needs are. If you have your own company, you have to sit down with your IT staff and marketing staff and preferably every member of your company to come up with a......

Web Hosting

...researching various shared web hosts, I have narrowed my choices to three sites: Fatcow.com, Myhosting.com and Dreamhost.com. I am researching the basic plan for each web hosting site because I only have a small business. The first one, Fatcow.com, drew me in to its web hosting site because it has completely “gone green.” It powers its entire web hosting site with wind energy. Another interesting aspect to the web hosting site seems is the free shopping cart option, which allows my customers to purchase directly off the site (FatCow, 2010). As a second choice, I researched Dreamhost.com for two features with which the other web hosting sites could not compete. The two features include a lower price on the basic package at $2.95/month and a 97-day money-back guarantee. The other two web hosting sites only offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. Additionally, this web site is about seventy cents cheaper than the other two web hosting sites (DreamHost, 2010). My final selection, Myhosting.com, offers free spam filtering and web log analysis for its basic package. These two features are not offered on my other web hosting sites of choice. Spam filtering stops unwanted e-mails that would otherwise take up the company’s time and money through which to sort. This site also provides free web log analysis which is important when determining web site traffic; therefore, one can evaluate the progress of the business (SoftCom Inc., 2009). After looking at 2010 web hosting comparisons, I......

Fundamentals of Hospitality Hosting.

...Fundamentals Of Hospitality Hosting. How to be a Good Host Introduction A host is a person who entertain guests at home or during an event at a certain venue. The host is required during an event to entertain guests, so that guests will feel welcomed and at ease to move around just like how they are at home. During an event without a host, guests attending the event might feel at lost, unenjoyable and boring; Hence, the person who is playing the role as a host have to harbour certain qualities. In order to be a good host, you will have to harbour major qualities such as knowledgeable, polite, interactive, helpful, approachable and welcoming. In this aspect, we will be referring to playing a good host at a hotel. The first person whom someone will seek help from when they enter the hotel would be the receptionist. A good receptionist will be one who must have the knowledge to guide and help the customers with what they need or where they want to go. In order to ensure customer to approach to you, the receptionist must be neat, welcoming by having a sweet smile, an approachable look that is not hostile and untidy and good looks would always be an added bonus. The receptionist must be interactive and helpful in order to hold conversations with whoever they are interacting and to help them with what they need/want in this line. Sometimes a good receptionist should go beyond the call of duty to help customers like bringing the customer to the toilet entrance instead......

Social Web

...The History of Social Web Ashley Jackson INF 103 Professor Jaclyn Minor May 24, 2012 The social web was first designed with the intention of just having a fun way to interact with friends and family over the Internet. Over the years, it has grown into one of the most popular forms of social interaction. This paper will discuss the past history of the social web, as well as the most popular sites of the present, including Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, and Friendster. I will show the pros and cons of social networking with facts and information I have obtained through research. The term “social web” does not exclusively belong to digital technology on the Web. On the contrary, social networks have been studied since the beginning of 20th century with the aim of comprehending how the members of a certain community interact and the mechanisms through which this interaction takes place, (Postigo, 2011). Today, social networking commonly refers to all those activities that are carried out within specific online services that provide free space and software tools, which allow users to create networks of people. In most instances, a social networking service is a website that allows individuals to construct a public or semi-public profile. The profile is usually made by filling out a template with the user’s personal data. This data is not only limited to the users’......
