Parallels Hosting Summit 2008 Video Feedback

Wed, 28 May 2008 22:30:00 -0500

WHIRtv was on location in Washington, DC last week covering Parallel's third annual hosting summit, which, we've been told, had the largest attendance yet.

We chatted with a number of different companies while at the event, which we will be posting in the following weeks, as well as with the ever-opinionated industry leader Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. Stay tuned for that later this week.

In the meantime, here's a look at what some of the exhibitors and attendees thought of this year's Parallel's Hosting Summit and the value they found in attending this annual event.

Dialpoint Stock Soars after Two Key Hosting - Telecom Acquisitions

Mon, 04 Feb 2008 19:47:00 -0400

I noticed that Dialpoint Communications Corp (OTCBB: DLPC) completed two acquisitions in January;

The first: Acquisition of Hostigation (Timothy Flavin), an asset transaction where the owners accepted 333,334 shares of Dialpoint stock. This stock has already increased 5 to 20 times (depending how you interpret the agreements) since the deal was inked.

The second: Acquisition of Brian's Computer Center, the press release stated “…the Company will issue unregistered shares of its common stock equal in the amount of 107,843 shares. The certificates representing the shares of common stock will bear restrictive legends.”

Dialpoint has a market cap of $38.6 million.

Am I impressed? Peeling back the onion...

  • Dialpoint has 13.3 million shares outstanding - thats a lot.
  • The Hostingation deal has a value of $50,000 at closing...a tiny deal
  • The Brian’s Computer deal value looks like it was $170,000...another tiny deal.
  • The stock increased from $0.51 on 1-17-08 to $2.90 today...thats a big gain.
  • Dialpoint President Billy Radford ownes 11.25 million shares...Can you say $32.6 million?
  • Over the last two weeks an average of 3,000 shares/day were traded...why bother.

If this was a deal put before one of my clients I would highly suggest we conduct extensive due-diligence prior to accepting a deal like this.

In these deals there is NO cash. The sellers probably cannot be liquid for at least 12 months, and with the current float it would be extreamly hard to sell the shares.

If you are selling your business I would tell you only to take stock as a small percentage from firms that are similiar to Dialpoint. The stock should be the upside - not the whole banana.

Other than the press releases and a couple of SEC docs I could find out almost nothing about Dialpoint. I will however admit they have been very successful in getting thousands of these two press releases pasted all over the Internet.

In Case You've Read Otherwise, SmugMug Still Loves S3

Mon, 12 Mar 2007 17:01:00 -0400

Last Thursday night, I came across this article via the Storagezilla blog. Beth Pariseau wrote that Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) has had "performance and reliability issues serious enough" to prompt second thoughts among early adopters. In particular, SmugMug CEO Don MacAskill recently decided to move hot storage back in-house.

The instant I finishing reading the article, my RSS reader lit up with Don's response. He still loves Amazon, even if S3 hasn't solved the "speed of light problem". It takes at least 60-80ms for bytes of data to travel the distance between SmugMug's west coast location and Amazon's east coast data center. There's no getting around that. He moved hot storage closer to his web servers NOT to solve Amazon's performance problems, but to reduce those thousands of miles to inches. Don also tracked down the Storagezilla post and added a comment there.

Fast forward to this morning, when someone sent me a snippet from a Tier 1 Research news brief in which Dan Golding wrote about Amazon's disillusioned users. I gave Dan a hard time for basing his article on the same two customers Beth interviewed without giving her credit. Dan argued that attribution isn't customary in the analyst world. Besides, we shouldn't even be having this conversation. As a non-subscriber, I should have deleted any T1R content that came my way upon receipt.

Ironically, during his HostingCon presentation last year, T1R founder Andy Schoepfer's key message was "don't be an island". It's important for web hosting providers to connect customers to external ecosystems like eBay and Amazon, because no e-business can thrive in isolation. Given T1R's Hosting 2.0 advocacy, Dan's reaction seemed... Analyst 1.0-ish. But towards the end of our conversation, he did promise that an upgrade is on the way. As a point of reference, Burton Group, Dan's former employer, has a great blog that links to external sources. Same goes for Forrester. And at least 220 other research firms, including T1R parent company The 451 Group. Raven Zachary, who leads 451's open source practice, is even on Twitter!

Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox now and back to Amazon. I think every web hosting exec needs to read Don's blog post - along with Robert Cichon's post on customer satisfaction metrics. Robert said a hosting provider has done a good job if (a) the company gets written testimonials, (b) customers refer other customers because they're happy with service quality, and (c) customers defend the company against negative remarks. Amazon gets three points based on Don's reaction. What's your score?

The advantages of web hosting plans

How to Migrate Your Linux Website to Another Hosting Company

Wed, 07 May 2008 12:48:34 GMT
A complete migration involves transferring the site data itself, meaning all the HTML and possibly PHP and MySQL files and CGI programs. You also need to modify the Domain Name System (DNS) information for the site and for the routing of the site email. DNS holds information that translates IP addresses to human-readable domain names. For Web site migration, the two important DNS records are the address (A) record, which tells the browser the IP address of the Web server, and the mail exchange (MX) record, which tells mail servers how to route the email.

Go to Connectivity Issue Right Now?

Wed, 27 Feb 2008 00:36:25 +1100

There seems to be some connectivity issue with regarding to my VPS at Web24 (profiled at VPS AU here) right now. For my websites hosted there, the heading will load, and then part of the content, and then the browser will just stall there trying to fetch the rest of the page but they never arrive.

Web24 is coloc at Fujitsu data centre in Melbourne, and a quite traceroute check with mtr shows around 20-40% packet loss at Fujitsu data centre.

I have posted the same issue on Whirlpool Forums and so far we have got no response from the provider. and their HSPcomplete panel are hosted inside the same network thus neither are working at the moment. I can’t even get onto the support page to get the contact details (lucky there is Google cache).

Not happy Jen. Have to wait and see… Maybe it is a sign that I need to go to sleep now :)

Update 9AM AEST 27 Feb

I got a reply back from Web24 support this morning detailing the communication between Web24, Fujitsu and their up stream providers. Great job! Some paraphrased details:

  • Packet loss issue identified at 10:15pm on 26 February, and later found out it was an upstream router issue.

  • Web24 has been working with Fujitsu and Verizon in identifying and resolving the issue, and by 1:18am 27 February, the main web24 site failed over to US network (very good idea).

  • All the traffic are routing through secondary links by 4:45am, and still waiting for feedbacks on primary provider.

Pingdom still reports my site was down until around 8:20am. This is the graph generated from Cacti:

Web24/Fujitsu Network issue

Note that the network does not appear to be down from 10pm onwards because the querying packets are small enough to get through. I guess network connectivity is going to be patchy this morning.

Parallels Summit 2008 officially kicks off

Mon, 19 May 2008 12:19:00 -0500

As I mentioned last week theWHIR team is in attendance at the 3rd Annual Parallels Summit 2008. The event is taking place at the lovely Art Deco Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. The day began promptly at 8am with a bit of a line up at the registration desk but the folks at Parallels were sure to sort that out before long. The attendee list exceeds 700, so I am certain that this event is the largest since its inception.

The red shirt clad Parallels team is in full force because they seem to be everywhere. The Web hosting industry who's who is also in attendance and includes Platinum Sponsor Microsoft as well as representatives from SoftLayer, Comodo, Bobcares, SmarterTools , PlusServer and so many more.

If you are at the event be sure to stop by theWHIR networking lounge and leave your business card to win an 8GB iPod Nano.
