Learning Web Servers

As a blogger, I have a big interest in webhosting and internet connection speeds.  I get frustrated when I do not have enough bandwidth to do what I want, and get frustrated with web sites “timing out” or web pages not rendering properly or just loading slowly.  I spend a lot of time on time and normally I really enjoy the experience, but there are times when my ISP frustrates me.  That is one reason I am interested in learning as much as I can about servers and bandwidth.

So when I am not blog hopping I am seeking information on web servers, and things like fiber optics and internet transfer protocols.  The latter is a bit confusing to me, lol maybe I just have my niece, a college student to tell me a bit more about it.  So when I see terms like “100mbps” I really did not know what it meant at first.  What I have learned tells me that there are speeds much greater than my DSL which is 1.5mbps/256kbps.  And what is this ‘mbps” anyway? Mbps stands for “Megabits per second” and Kbps for “Kilobits per second.” You will often see ISPs advertise their connection seed using these measures.  From the early days of 14.4 modems to high speed fiber optics, the speed of internet connections has really increased.

What I find really interesting is the idea of Unmetered Hosting.  What would this mean to me? Well, if I were business owner, it would mean that I could have full use of the line, unlimited uploads and downloads, for a flat fee.  Doesn’t that sound like an attractive place to put your company’s website on a dedicated server with unmetered bandwidth?  Having anywhere from a 100mbps up to 1gbps of throughput is really a gem.  I mean at those speeds you should be able to handle almost anything.

I like learning new things and I find this to be very fascinating.  My niece is much more knowledgeable about this kind of thing than I am since she is a computer science major, but I can’t help but not want to discuss the advantages of this technology with her.
