Every project development needs an environment which comprises of Development Server, Repository, Test Server and Live Server with Domain. The production is done on Development Server and tested on a public URL and sent to client for UAT (User Acceptance Testing), ones it’s approved the produced code has to be moved to Test Server which is just a replica of Live Server and allow us to test the functionalities created how they will look on and effect the live site. If the Test Server implementation goes well, the site is moved to Live Server during a low traffic time (down time) efficiently.
Apart from the above some time there are issues which brings down your server and site along with it, the same may be caused by any of followings:
1) Webmaster Errors: Coding errors, not optimizing scripts or running too many scripts can cause issues
2) Forgetting to renew a site’s domain name or hosting contract
3) DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) Attacks: Occurs when sites are deliberately targeted with traffic from many sources to cause server overload
4) Server Overload: A tidal wave of web traffic can overload a server
5) With shared servers, resources are limited: One site with heavy traffic, processing needs, or high volume email can cause problems for other sites on the same server
6) Datacenter Problems: Datacenters are storage facilities holding multiple servers in a controlled environment. Power failures or hardware malfunctions can affect sites hosted on a datacenter’s servers
We are expert with Linux as well as Windows environments and servers including AWS, Apache, Nginx, Asterisk etc... along with programming languages PHP, ASP.Net, Java, MEAN and able to set up, configure and troubleshoot issues like above.
Aprt from able to fix any of above issues we can
1) Set up a server and configure it for new/existing projects along with all back-up rules and security measure.
2) Migrate a website to a new site from an existing hosting provider, most of people these days moving to cloud as cloud is auto scalable and charges on as used basis unlike shared hosting with a fixed quota.
3) Set Up and configure CDN Services (Content Distribution Network) like:Cloudflare (offers a free version), MaxCDN
4) DNS Management: Set up DNS management service so as soon as the website goes offline, these services automatically route traffic to your secondary host.
5) Domain registrar transfer and Zone files settings while moving site from one host to anoher along with domain.
