Product Description:

This book was written to achieve a single goal: to get you started. By the end of this book, you will be able to host websites on a web server that you built using Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Who this book is for

This book is for those who would like to know more about web hosting on AWS, but are not sure where to start.

Aimed at absolute beginners, this book does not expect you to have prior experience in managing a virtual server. Some knowledge on how websites work is expected, but considering you probably will not be looking into books on web hosting if you do not have at least one website of your own, this should not be a problem.

With more than one hundred screenshots and illustrations, this book will guide you in building a web server for hosting your sites in a step by step fashion. The lessons are explained by examples. As you progress from one chapter to the next you will be adding more and more components until you end up with a fully functioning web server.

Why this book is not for everybody

This is not a reference book. This book avoids using technical terms as much as possible in order to keep absolute beginners engaged. It is true that technical terms are often inevitable (we are addressing a technical subject after all), but a lot of effort has been put in to simplify them. In short, if you expect a highly technical book, this is not it.

All information covered in this book can be found online. AWS has extensive documentation and tutorials available for free. Before you buy this book, make sure you read the AWS online documentation first. If you can manage to go on by using the information available there, you do not need this book.

This book provides a fair amount of hand-holding. It is organized in a step by step fashion, chapter by chapter. That means in most parts, the latter chapters are built upon what were done in the preceding chapters. This is great for those who like to go step by step, but not desirable to some who prefer to skip some chapters and read only the parts that they need.

What you will learn from this book

The lessons start with how to launch a server in AWS and how to install Linux, Apache, PHP, MySQL and phpMyAdmin, which is a setup commonly offered by commercial web hosting providers. They are covered from Chapter 2 to Chapter 7. By the end of Chapter 7, your web server is up and ready to go.

Hosting websites involves dealing with domain names. Chapter 8 will show you how to link your domain name to your server. The lesson continues to Chapter 9, where you will find out how to host multiple sites, each with their own domain names, and to Chapter 10 where you will learn how to create a subdomain within a website. By the end of Chapter 10, your web server will be hosting your sites and you will be able to visit them by using your domain names.

The next step would be to upload the websites’ files from your computer to your web server. This is covered in Chapter 11, where you will learn how to use Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

By having your own web server, you are of course free to give other users access to your server. Chapter 12 will show you how to create user IDs for other users to log in securely. It will also show you how to limit your users’ access, to ensure they can only access the part that you allow them to.

Web hosting would be incomplete without the ability to host blogs. Chapter 13 will show you how to implement one of the most popular blogging platforms, WordPress.

The remaining chapters are dedicated to maintaining your server, such as managing log files, utilizing a job scheduler called Cron, and implementing updates and installing additional software.

Product Description:
Choosing a Web Host is a brief guide to what you should look for when it comes to the important decision of which website hosting service to entrust your website to. How to choose your web hosting provider is not a decision to be taken lightly, and Gordon Goodfellow considers the rationale behind what makes a good host and what makes an exceptional web host. Matters such as downtime, technical support, cPanel, multiple domain hosting, subdomains, SEO and secure servers are considered carefully in this tightly packed little volume. The case is made for a hosting service which is amply equipped to provide comprehensive support which is able to grow as your business grows. The final section of the book consists of a highly useful, illustrated guide to setting up with the ‘winner’ of the hosting companies from opening the account to changing the nameservers. This is a very practical source of wisdom based on 20 years of Internet, webmaster and hosting experience. You cannot go wrong by following the advice within.

Product Description:

Learn the tricks of the trade so you can build and architect applications that scale quickly--without all the high-priced headaches and service-level agreements associated with enterprise app servers and proprietary programming and database products. Culled from the experience of the Flickr.com lead developer, Building Scalable Web Sites offers techniques for creating fast sites that your visitors will find a pleasure to use.

Creating popular sites requires much more than fast hardware with lots of memory and hard drive space. It requires thinking about how to grow over time, how to make the same resources accessible to audiences with different expectations, and how to have a team of developers work on a site without creating new problems for visitors and for each other.

Presenting information to visitors from all over the world

Integrating email with your web applications

Planning hardware purchases and hosting options to have as much as you need without breaking your wallet

Partitioning and distributing databases to support large datasets and simultaneous transactions

Monitoring your applications to find and clear bottlenecks

* Providing services APIs and using services from other providers to increase your site's reach and capabilities

Whether you're starting a small web site with hopes of growing big or you already have a large system that needs maintenance, you'll find Building Scalable Web Sites to be a library of ideas for making things work.
