How To Choose The Best Website Hosting For Your Needs

GlowHost Best Website HostingEvery business or individual is completely different, and no two web hosting customers are the same. While you may be content to offer an online product catalog with merchant functionality, others may aim to launch their own streaming video service, regular podcasts or even a live streaming radio station!

In theory, each of these things can be achieved using any type of web hosting service, provided that the available system resources are sufficient for the technical demands of your software. Whether you choose shared hosting, virtual private server (VPS) hosting, a dedicated server hosting solution or even cloud hosting, you will be able to get these kinds of exciting services up and running with the right expertise.

At GlowHost, we have taken things further. In addition to our generous resource allowances across all services that make streaming content a possibility, we have developed a number of hosting services including FFmpeg hosting, podcast hosting, vBulletin hosting, and SHOUTcast hosting plans. These solutions, customized to suit the unique needs of different customers, make achieving your goals easier than ever.

FFmpeg hosting services for streaming video and audio

If you have ever visited YouTube, you have seen FFmpeg web hosting in motion. By running a quality FFmpeg script on your server, you can upload standard video, in almost every possible format, have it converted server-side into .flv format, and make the footage available to visitors that have Flash Player installed in their browsers (almost everyone on the Internet) in an instant.

Every hosting service available (excluding our Unlimited packages) from GlowHost includes FFmpeg functionality as standard, making streaming video on any scale available immediately. What’s more, we can install a popular video streaming script like PHPMotion, vShare or VidiScript free of charge with any purchase over $25.

SHOUTcast web hosting for live online radio broadcasts

SHOUTcast is an incredibly popular software solution designed for setting up and running your very own online radio station. In addition to live broadcasts that can be deployed from your PC to your SHOUTcast hosting server and then streamed immediately to your audience, this technology also allows you to store pre-recorded MP3s on your server for those times when your live broadcast is offline using our Auto-DJ service.

Each of these features is managed through the SHOUTcast Admin Pro Control Panel, which GlowHost offers across a number of tiered SHOUTcast hosting services, each of which has been designed to guarantee the best listening experience for your customers. Additionally, each of these plans allows for unlimited users and features, and full support for high quality 128Kbps audio streaming.

Free vBulletin hosting and installation

One of the world’s most versatile and scalable pieces of bulletin board and forum software, vBulletin uses PHP and MySQL to make a robust place where your customers can talk about your products and services. This can be an essential tool in effective communication, or simply to add value to your online presence and encourage repeat visits.

Every web hosting plan from GlowHost fully supports vBulletin, but customers can also make use of free vBulletin installation on a number of hosting services. GlowHost offers a special vBulletin hosting package which is an all-encompassing vBulletin solution that includes a free vBulletin license, free installation, and a free domain name among other goodies.

Flexible GlowHost hosting that can meet and exceed your requirements

In addition to the specific, individualized web hosting solutions designed to meet individual needs, every GlowHost server is highly adaptable to whatever it is that you or your business aim to do. This includes Softaculous and Fantastico, two script installers that make deploying shopping carts, blogs, and other dynamic content a quick and easy process.

GlowHost’s FFmpeg hosting services, vBulletin hosting plans, and SHOUTcast hosting solutions all include instant-activation, a minimum 99.9% uptime guarantee, a 60-day money back promise, and unrivalled 24/7/365 customer support from a highly trained and experienced staff.
