NameHero Hosting review

I switched to NameHero as my hosting last year and till now, I don’t regret my decision. I’ve used my earlier host for around 8 years and it was good too. But suddenly the Divi theme installed on my WordPress sites (I had two sites with the same host) had some problems and I could not sort it out with my web hosting provider and their support service could not help out. Even though I am not running a million-dollar business or a huge blog, I like to have a speedier service, having minimum downtime and fewer problems with my hosting services. I did not have much budget to go for very fast dedicated services but I did not want to settle with dirt-cheap hosting either where you need to troubleshoot problems every day or the other. I have a habit of researching things and services before I make a purchase. So, when I decided to switch my web host, which I had been using for more than 8 years, I Googled and Binged to get recommendations and reviews from experts. When you search for web hosting services, I guarantee you that 80% of the results will recommend you to services of a particular group which has a number of different web hosting brands. I wanted some other services for my WordPress Blog and then I zeroed in with two service providers, one is NameHero and other is also an equally good hosting company, SiteGround. Since I need only one service, I settled with NameHero after some comparison and price matching with my available budget and individual discounts on offer in August 2019. Siteground also has recently increased its prices.

Let me talk about Namehero. Namehero is based in the US and has Data centres in the US and the EU at present. They offer shared cloud web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated cloud hosting and domains. They offer High-Speed Cloud Hosting with 99.9% Website Uptime which is Instantly Scalable. Their shared hosting plans come with a free SSL certificate and free SSD or Solid State Drives that are protected by Raid 10. What makes SSDs better than the standard HDD is the fact that they don’t have any moving parts and use flash memory to store data. This means your website will load faster and there is less chance of a hard drive failure. The RAID 10 used to protect the SSDs uses a combination of disk mirroring and disk striping to protect your data which means your website will be more secure than on a regular shared hosting server. They also offer complimentary nightly backups for complete peace of mind.

What to expect from the Shared Hosting Plans (You can try for 7 days free)?

The shared hosting services offered by Namehero come under four plans.

Starter Cloud: Beginner friendly plan which allows one website and a free domain (in plans for two years and above). Offers unlimited SSD storage (maximum 250,000 inodes, means files), 1 GB RAM, cPanel, Lightspeed server which is faster than traditional Apache servers. It also comes with Free SSL, SSH access, website shield,  WordPress auto-installer and many more features.

Plus Cloud:  It allows hosting up to 6 websites and offers a free domain (in plans for two years and above). This plan offers 2GB Ram and 250000 inodes, cPanel, and other features offered in the starter cloud plan.

Turbo Cloud: This plan offers unlimited websites and a free domain (in plans for two years and above). The server RAM is 3GB and offers up to 500000 inodes.

Business Cloud: The business plan offers unlimited websites and a free domain (in plans for two years and above). Offers 4GB RAM and up to 500000 inodes. 

 

Reseller Web Hosting is the practice of reselling web hosting space to sub-clients. As a Reseller, you purchase large blocks of disk space, bandwidth, and server resources and then divide it up into individual packages to resell to other clients for a recurring fee (i.e. monthly, quarterly, annually, etc.). It is a great way to earn extra income and NameHero’s reseller hosting plans make it easy to get up and running with your reseller hosting business. The reseller Hosting Plans are white labelled (you can use your own branding) hosting plans and they offer WHCMS control panel. Reseller plans also include a year-round 24/7 support and they can even help you migrate your reseller hosting account for free.

NameHero offers four reseller plans.

  • Silver – The cheapest plan is their Silver Tier is good for starters. Free and unlimited SSL for all accounts and the ability to host 40 client accounts and each client can host an unlimited number of domains. The Silver plan includes Raid Protected 40 GB SSD storage and 500GB of monthly bandwidth. 
  • Gold –This plan includes free and unlimited SSL for all accounts, and the ability to host 60 client accounts and each client can host an unlimited number of domains. The Silver plan includes Raid Protected 75 GB SSD storage and 800GB of monthly bandwidth. It offers Free WHMCS.
  • Platinum– This plan includes free and unlimited SSL for all accounts, and the ability to host 80 client accounts and each client can host an unlimited number of domains. The Silver plan includes Raid Protected 150 GB SSD storage and 1000GB of monthly bandwidth. It offers Free WHMCS.
  • Diamond– It is the top tier reseller hosting plan and comes with free and unlimited SSL for all accounts, and the ability to host 100 client accounts and each client can host an unlimited number of domains. The Silver plan includes Raid Protected 150 GB SSD storage and 1000GB of monthly bandwidth. It offers Free WHMCS.

 

For greater flexibility,  the VPS hosting plans of Namehero come fully supported by their technical team for hand-holding the clients who need support for server management. 

NameHero’s VPS hosting comes in four plans.

  • Hero 2GB 30GB SSD Storage, 2GB RAM, 2 CPU Cores, US Datacenter 10TB Outgoing Bandwidth and 1 Dedicated IP.
  • Hero 4GB 60GB SSD Storage, 4GB RAM, 4 CPU Cores, US Datacenter 10TB Outgoing Bandwidth and 1 Dedicated IP.
  • Hero 6GB 90GB SSD Storage, 6GB RAM, 6 CPU Cores, US Datacenter 10TB Outgoing Bandwidth and 1 Dedicated IP.
  • Hero 8GB – 12 0GB SSD Storage, 8GB RAM, 8 CPU Cores, US Datacenter 10TB Outgoing Bandwidth and 1 Dedicated IP.

 

The Dedicated Cloud Hosting Plans are the top of the line offering from NameHero and come in four tiers.

The Standard Cloud plan offers a 3.8GHz Processor with 4 Cores / 8 Thread, 8GB RAM,  210GB SSD Storage, 5TB Outgoing Bandwidth and are  Fully Managed.  

The Enhanced Cloud Plan offers 3.6GHz Processor 4 Cores / 8 Thread, 15GB RAM with 450GB SSD Storage, 5TB Outgoing Bandwidth which is Fully Managed. 

The Enterprise Cloud Plan comes with a 3.8GHz Processor, 6 Cores / 12 Thread,  31GB RAM, 460GB SSD Storage, 5TB Outgoing Bandwidth and are Fully Managed.

The Hypersonic Cloud Plan 2×2.1GHz Processors,16 Cores / 32 Thread, 62GB RAM, 900GB SSD Storage, 5TB Outgoing Bandwidth and are fully managed.

 

Support Services, my personal experience while running this current blog site: NameHero promises a support service round the clock round the year for all customers(24x7x365). I personally have taken support help for some minor queries and they promptly resolved my issues within a day or two. They revert in most cases within hours and resolution is provided in a day. But, the customer support has to be taken with a grain of salt since my experience doesn’t represent the experiences of all the customers. There may be instances where the support service could do better. 

So if you want to try NameHero for hosting, you can also try for 7 days risk-free. I am sure you won’t be disappointed with their service and prompt support.

Featured Image

Locked down, aren’t we? We all are doing our bit to combat the novel Corona outbreak by staying indoors and working from home. Let us use our free time to create your personal book catalog for free using My Library App.

Android Smartphones allow users to use the phone in many productive ways. We all are now going through a tough time and most of us are staying indoors. Many of us are spending time by reading various books and novels. Students and educators are spending their time to prepare class notes and study materials from their personal collection of books and journals. I believe most of us can boast of a personal library of at least a small number of books if not thousands. Right?

Let me ask you something? How many have you have created a catalog of  your personal book library? By personal library, I mean the books on your study tables, bookshelves or anywhere in your homes. We can spend this #lockdown period in organizing a personal collection of books and journals. For this, I will use an App called My Library by Julien Keith. I am an Android user and you can find this app in the Android Play Store. This app allows you to store your personal library and perform a Quick Search within it. By creating a catalog, we not only organized our books, it also provided us a sense of richness about the collection that we own.

The main features of the app are

  • Add a book to your catalog by using the Barcode scanner inside the app.
  • Add a book via ISBN.
  • Search book in your library
  • Sorting options
  • Export to excel
  • Save export database to cloud storage. Only Google Drive and Dropbox are supported at present.
  • Importing of database.

How to use tools for anonymous torrent downloads real quick and easy [in 2019]

How to use tools for torrent download

  1. A VPN app to get access to Torrent sites. In my country, many torrent sites are blocked. The Torrent technology (P2P file sharing) is not only for illegal downloads but many legal software and videos are available for download via torrents as well. I prefer Nord VPN for anonymity. It is available for almost all platforms with some good servers. P2P is allowed. BTW, we will use a torrent leecher web service.
  2. A download manager, I prefer Internet Download Manager for Windows and Advanced Download Manager (buy Pro for ad free experience) for Android.
  3. An account in Torrent Leecher site like Zbigz , the premium service is good but has some cost. If the file size is not too big then seedr.cc also provides good speed and 2GB storage to start with for free.

Anonymous torrent download
The 1-2-3 of the process:
  1. Connect to VPN, for anonymous connection and access to Torrent site. The detailed connection process will vary from one software to another.
  2. Copy the magnet link of the torrent file from the site. Add the link to seedr or zbigz. There are a number of torrent leecher services available with different free and paid plans. I have listed only those which I personally have used and found to be working well. We can also paste to torrent file lik as well instead of magnet links. 3.The leecher service will start caching the file requested in its own servers. It is something like the leecher service download the torrent file in a similar manner as it is done in our own PC via Torrent Clients. We leave the leecher site till the caching is complete. Sometimes it takes longer time for the process to complete. Once the caching process is complete, the file can be downloaded as usual. Use the download manager of your choice to download it at maximum speed.

The following are the initial screenshots of the notification. So India Galaxy Note users have all reasons to cheer and hope for a better upgraded Note!

Indic Language support across platforms

This computer age requires us to write using a PC/Mobile device every now and then. Most of us can type in the default English language input methods supported across platforms. Now a days, the operating system environments are  expanding horizons where we find many flavors of OS across devices. The most common environments being the Microsoft’s Windows, Apple’s Mac OS and various GNU/Linux based distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Linux Mint, Archlinux and so on.On the mobile devices front, Apple’s IOS and Google’s Android are now the leading OS. Symbian, Blackberry OS and Windows Mobile are the other notable operating systems that power our mobile phones and Tablets. When we talk about input methods, many of us don’t even think beyond the default option of English input. But we can very easily enable support for our own native languages. There are many software solutions which allow us to type in many Indic languages, e.g., Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Gujarati, Assamese, Bengali and many more. I will briefly introduce some of the methods for input in Indian languages in different platforms (I don’t have a Mac, so I will not talk about it Winking smile). 

Microsoft Windows is undoubtedly the most widespread OS and there are several free and paid solutions available. Notable among them are:

Lipikaar (Visit  http://www.lipikaar.com for more details and download) provides a software for windows and a free Firefox browser add-on to enable Indian Language input (See this link ). Lipikaar interface is very simple and the phonetic input does not require one to have special training.

Avro Keyboard:  This is a free software and works quite well. Download this free tool from : http://www.omicronlab.com/avro-keyboard.html 

Baraha: Baraha comes in Free and Paid Versions(with premium features). The free version is sufficient for basic Indian Language input. Downloads and details can be obtained from the Baraha Website : http://www.baraha.com

GNU/Linux environment also have many solutions. The Ibus Input Method is the one I prefer to use when it comes to input in my own Assamese Language in openSUSE 12.1 OS. The m17n library provides language support for many Indian languages and this library can be used with Ibus to get Indian language support under GNU/Linux.

In Ubuntu, Ibus, Ibus-gtk, m17n-library, and the m17n contributed packages can be installed via the software center. I installed these packages in my openSUSE 12.1 system using the Yast Software Management Tool. After successful installation of these packages, a reboot is required to use the Ibus input method.

I also use my own language (Assamese, অসমীয়া) in my Android phone. Android offers a lot of apps through the Google Play store (formerly known as the Android Market). Though the number of apps is fewer as compared to Apple’s App store,  there are lot of apps; paid as well as free. The Multiling Keyboard (search Play Store to get download options) is a very good free app which makes it very easy to input in many languages including Indian Languages such as Hindi, Bengali and Assamese. The functionality of the app can be extended using various freely available plugins for the app.

I hope this brief introduction about options for input in our own languages for various platforms will at least make the readers aware of the software solutions available. Please give them a try!

Write in Indian Languages Free with Firefox and Lipikaar (লিপিকাৰ)

Lipikaar provides a free Firefox extension which enables writing in many Indian languages including Assamese and Sanskrit. The extension is free and installs similar to other Firefox extensions.To get this extension, in Firefox menu bar click on “Tools–>Get add on” and then search for Lipikaar. Install the extension and complete the process by restarting Firefox. The preferred writing language can be selected from the Preferences Section in Lipikaar Extension window.

Lipikaar can be used to update facebook status, post to twitter or writing your WordPress blog in Indian Languages in a very easy to use manner. It uses phonetic input which is very easy to make use of. There are other free software available to input in Indian Languages but most of them are Microsoft Windows platform dependent. Even Lipikaar has a full software for Microsoft Windows. This Firefox extension, being a browser based technology, is platform independent and presently available for Firefox under both Windows and Linux.
