Finding an affordable host made easy.

I was asked by 4cheapwebhosting.com to review their services. I had a look around their site. So here it goes: If you want me to review your site or services, drop me a message via the contact form.

Finding a good host is vital for any website’s success. You don’t want your website to have thousands to hits daily only to crash abruptly. Downtimes have a really bad effect on public memory. They don’t go down well with advertisers either. And since you have to choose a host before you have actually started your website, most newbies end up with hosting packages they don’t actually need or a hosting package that is way smaller than their needs.

An ideal host would have the following features:

  • 100% uptime guarantee
  • 24/7 customer service
  • Live chat support
  • A good forum that has plenty of big daddies on it
  • Regular backup facility
  • It should be cheap and affordable

Choosing a good host can be rather intricate. Have your work cut out simply by visiting 4cheapwebhosting.com and check out their affordable web hosting packages. This site can be exceptionally useful specially if you are planning of moving to new servers. That way you know your exact needs and can find your ideal host easily.

For newbies, they have a very unbiased list of hosts. Do a bit of research on them and choose wisely. Hosting packages have been classified into categories such as linux / windows hosting, ASP / PHP / JSP scripting, MySQL databases (you generally need them for blogs and CMSs), multi domains etc.

There are more than 400 packages to choose from. You can even have a word with them just to be sure you are getting the best. Take your pick wisely.

Spock- the best for people search

Spock Dot ComWhile the big daddies like Yahoo, Windows Live and our favorite Google fight it out for the ultimate Search Engine supremacy, here’s a search engine that actually stands out. Why? Coz it doesn’t search web pages at all! It searches people!

Spock- the best for people search

Whether it’s celebs, friends, fellow bloggers or any other interesting people you’ve met, spock.com finds them for you. What’s more interesting is that the profiles you find on Spock are editable. Infact, they are supposed to be edited! You can add yourself to their database, edit your profile, edit others’, add photos/videos and even vote on other people’s photos.

Profiles are characterised by their tags. Select from a whole range of tags or add your own. These tags eventually decide search results. My profile for eg, has tags like Blogger, Black eyes, enjoys cricket, graduate of mumbai, enjoys Chinese, From india, black hair, lives in Mumbai etc. So when you search for anything among those, you should find me.

Another interesting feature is the ability to build widgets. Apart from a particular profile, you can even create widgets from search results. The second widget below shows profiles that were tagged ‘bollywood'(http://www.spock.com/q/bollywood). The first is my own widget.

Spock.Com was started by Jay Bhatti and Jaideep Singh (people of Indian origin. YAY!) in 2006 and has been growing ever since. Clearly Spock is not just another search engine. It could well turn out to be a revolution in the making!!

Brand Identity Guru SEO review

For a company of any stature, a website can be a good asset to improve sales. For a blogger (like me), his blog or personal site can be his means to fame and even riches.

WinterWolves’ Universal Boxing Manager – Game Review

This is my very first assignment with ReviewMe.Com
If you want me to review your product/website, contact me at angad619<at>gmail<dot>com

Those addicted to playing manager in FIFA titles must know the thrills and frills of playing manager. But why play manager when you could yourself step onto the football field! Logic tells me that I would love to play manager in a sport I wouldn’t dare play myself. A sport that gets you all sweaty, bruised and banged up. A sport like boxing!!

http://www.winterwolves.com‘s Universal Boxing Manager lets you play manager to a bunch of professional boxers. Hire more boxers, train them, setup and schedule matches. Manage infrastructure, medical staff, sponsors etc. If need be, even fire underperforming boxers! Feels powerful right? But with great power, comes great res…. (Yeah! Yeah! We all know that)

When you begin your new profile, you are given 150 points and two boxers to begin with. Improve training facilities, hire medics with the available points. The manager has to set up matches and schedule them in such a way that he gives his players enough rest.

The manager himself has attributes various attributes, charisma being the most of them. With enough charisma, he can boost the morale of his boxers. But that’s before the match. The real deal comes only when the fight begins.

During the fight, you get to instruct your boxer in between two rounds (very much like the pep talk boxers have with their managers in between rounds). You have 3 aspects to control:
Boxer Strategy: You can choose between ‘Strike Body’, ‘Strike High’ and ‘Mixed’.
Boxer Fighting Style: Choose between ‘Offensive’, ‘Defensive’ and ‘Movement’
Choose the right combination according to the fitness of your boxer and he will come out victorious. Making a bad decision could have your boxer Knocked Out!! Further depending on your points tally, you can choose to ‘incite’ your boxer, ‘heal’ your boxer or do nothing at all!

AS your wins matches, he climbs up the rankings. Higher ranked players earn more for each win/loss. In the process even your own attributes increase.

Overall, it’s a fun game to play. The 20min free trial is just a 4MB download and can be found at http://www.winterwolves.com. No harm in trying it out guys. Even the full version is a mere 24.95$ Check it out!!!
