What is a web hosting Provider?
Web hosting provider is an online service that allows you to publish your website files onto the internet. So, anyone who has access to the internet has access to your website. In practice, it usually refers to the service you get from a web hosting provider like one.com. While you can theoretically host an actual server for your website at home, relying on a web hosting service provider offers lots of benefits. How does web hosting work? In summary, companies like us rent out services and technologies to host your websites on the internet. Once you’ve chosen your domain name and signed up for a hosting plan, then your website is accessible on the internet. When you use web hosting services, your web host is responsible for making sure your server is up and running. Not only that, but it is also a host’s job to prevent any security breaches and store all your files, assets, and databases onto the server. If you choose one.com to host your website, we offer many other services to enhance and protect your site. What types of web hosting are there? Most web hosts will offer different types of hosting and each will vary in cost. It all depends on your website’s needs. We've compiled a list below to help you understand, which type of hosting is best suited to you. Shared Hosting Shared hosting is when a web hosting provider has several different websites on the same server. It is the most affordable form of hosting because you share the same server, so you split costs. If you are looking to start a blog or have a business that's just starting up, then shared hosting is a good option. In the past, sharing a server could lead to problems where a spike in traffic or resource usage from a single site would slow down its “neighboring” websites. However, these days’ web hosting subscriptions come with a generous amount of resources that ensure good performance. WordPress Hosting WordPress Hosting simply means hosting that has been optimized for WordPress on a server level to ensure smooth sailing. How is WordPress different from regular hosting? While details vary by provider, most WordPress hosting packages offer these common traits: 1- Simple one-click installation that avoids the dozen or so manual steps in configuring a new WordPress site. At one.com, WordPress installs automatically in under a minute. 2- Server configurations optimized for faster loading of WordPress sites. This could include performance cache optimizations and other tweaks. 3- Security measures to protect against common WordPress vulnerabilities. As WordPress powers over 30% of the web, it regularly comes under attack. You might also come across “Managed WordPress”, which often refers to a pre-defined secure environment that restricts usage of unsupported or vulnerable plugins. WordPress hosting can run on shared, VPS, or dedicated servers. What is the best web hosting service? Web hosting offered by service providers like one.com comes with a variety of specifications and packages. Here is what to look out for when you’re shopping: · Any limitations on bandwidth and traffic; some web hosts charge extra once you hit a certain number. · Built-in Website Builder or one-click WordPress installations that make it easy for you to get your website online quickly · Generous amount of storage, especially nowadays with big media files taking up lots of space. · Email hosting bundled with your website hosting plan. Many providers charge extra per email account or email hosting in general. · Variety of domain registration services make it a one-stop shop. Having your domain registered with one provider and hosted with another is a hassle. · Great customer support that’s available when you need it. As an example, one.com offers 24/7 chat support in many languages. How much does website hosting cost? Your website hosting cost will vary by provider. Technically you can use a free web hosting service, although, we do recommend avoiding them. Free vs Paid web hosting By opting for free hosting, you may encounter problems such as unwanted advertising on your page and their domain name in your URL. When you pay for web hosting, you are in full control of what content is on your website. There is numerous reason why you should choose paid web hosting over free web hosting: 1- Bandwidth & disk space - Free web hosts will give a lower bandwidth and limited disk space to their users. Paid web hosting can offer unlimited bandwidth and disk space. 2- Content limitations - Unlike paid web hosting, with free hosting the number of images and videos you can upload, is limited. 3- Security breaches - Paid web hosting usually comes with much higher security. By using a free web hosting provider, you have a higher risk of a security breach. This means your customer's credit card information and other data can be stolen. 4- Domain name & URL - Free hosting providers will give you a domain name, with their name in your URL. When you use paid hosting providers, you will get a custom URL and can choose your domain name. 5- Server speed - Free web hosting servers often overload, which means you may have to wait through a few hours of scheduled downtime. Paid hosting providers offer high-speed drives, with guaranteed uptime.
WHAT IS EPOXY FLOORING? & WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF EPOXY FLOOR COATINGS?
When it comes to choosing new flooring systems for industrial use, garage floor coating, or any other outdoor surfaces, epoxy resin flooring truly stands out from other flooring options for many reasons. Epoxy flooring, other known as resinous flooring, is highly durable, customizable, sustainable, and decorative for any surface. What appeals most to epoxy flooring is its resistance to high levels of wear and tear, making it the most long-lasting flooring option. If you are considering epoxy resin flooring, here is an explanation of what epoxy floors are made up of, the different types of epoxy resin, and where to use specific types of epoxy flooring systems. “What is Epoxy?” A primary aspect of epoxy coating is that it is chemically distinct from regular floor paints. Resinous flooring consists of a two-part epoxy system - a combination of polymer resins and hardeners, much like epoxy glue. When properly mixed, the epoxy resin and hardener react to one another resulting in a chemical bond with each compound and with the floor itself. The chemical bond creates a stiff plastic material that is durable, resistant to degradation, and bonds exceptionally well to its substrate. “What is Epoxy Flooring?” The most straightforward definition of epoxy flooring suggests a flooring surface that comprises multiple layers of epoxy that is applied to a floor with a depth of at least two millimeters. Confusion typically arises when comparing an epoxy floor and epoxy floor coating. The difference between the two lies in the depth of the epoxy - as stated, epoxy floors are classified as an epoxy coating of at least two millimeters thick. Any epoxy floor less than two millimeters thick is commonly referred to as an epoxy floor coating. Types of Epoxy Flooring & Where to Apply Them: Self-Leveling Epoxy Floors: self-leveling epoxy is utilized to apply over new, old, cracked, or damaged concrete floors to create a smooth, durable, and leveled texture on the surface of the floor. Self-leveling epoxy floors not only provide a shiny, seamless look but it comes in many different colors that appeal to commercial, industrial, and residential spaces. Where to Use Self-Leveling Epoxy Floors: manufacturing buildings, warehouses, showrooms, commercial garages, kitchens, athletic facilities, and more. Epoxy Mortar Floors: This flooring option classifies as the most stringent epoxy floor system available for use. This epoxy floor is made up of 100% solid epoxies and graded or quartz sand. Mortar systems are ideal for spaces that require a floor that is highly chemically resistant and can withstand a great deal of impact. This epoxy floor can be used to repair cracks before applying another type of epoxy floor. Where to Use Epoxy Mortar Floors: mechanical spaces, warehouses, commercial kitchens, restaurants, garages, manufacturing plants. Quartz-Filled Epoxy Floors: Quartz epoxy flooring is a combination of a high-performance epoxy polymer resin and stained quartz grains. This epoxy should be utilized for decorative spaces that require sanitary and slip-resistant properties. Where to Use Quartz-Filled Epoxy Floors: locker rooms, restrooms, schools, cafeterias, lobbies, offices, showrooms, and more. Anti-Static Epoxy Floors (Electro-static charge (ESD) Resistant Floors): ESD can be hazardous to many work environments. To reduce any static hazards in your spaces, anti-static epoxy floors can be applied. This epoxy floor typically holds a conductive compound that accumulates static electricity that dissipates any potential discharge. An anti-static solution is a highly recommended epoxy floor for spaces that contain flammable materials. Where to Use Anti-Static Epoxy Floors: electronic, chemical, or pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, healthcare facilities, or any spaces that use flammable gases or liquids that bring a risk of combustible dust buildup. Epoxy Flake Floors: This type of epoxy floor contains colored flake materials that are inserted in the epoxy to create a vibrant, multi-hued look. The flakes not only offer a seamless look but also provide each surface with subtle grooves to reduce any slips and falls. Epoxy flake floors come in an infinite variety of sizes, colors, styles, and textures that is customizable for any space. Where to Use Epoxy Flake Floors: locker rooms, sports venues, showrooms, clinics, commercial kitchens, and more. Epoxy flooring is a versatile chemical solution that is practical, long-lasting, highly resistant to impact, and customizable for any space. Whether you need an elegant entrance to a restaurant or need an unyielding surface to withstand industrial work - there is an epoxy floor system right for your space.
SNL Perfectly Captures White Peoples Response To Beyonce.
Its been a week since the infamous half time show where the world finally seemed to realize that Beyonce was actually black. Ok, Ok, I'm kidding....kind of. But its been a week since she performed "Formation" and a week since her bad ass music video dropped as well and people are freaking the fuck out. It seems that a black artist taking advantage of such a public setting to use her art as a show of self expression and representation for serious issues her race is facing is just ... INSANITY! The internet has exploded with people criticizing Beyonce for "bashing police" and for being inappropriate to talk about police brutality at a sporting event. Sorry she made you feel so uncomfortable fellow white people. But the truth is, the song wasn't meant of us (although it is actually amazing.) And I'm confused how we can think we can comment and critique someones dialogue when it has NEVER happened to us. We white people can't actually understand being afraid of the police since we never had to be. Check out SNL's perfect skit that points out just how fucking cray everyone went...the day they realize Beyonce was black. Oh and by the way, she isn't a hypocrite in having police protecting her. Calling out Police brutality isn't calling all police bad, its pointing out that there are some people in power who are making the world unsafe for certain people. And that is not ok. Saying #alllivesmatter is the same as saying #notallmen. Pointless and uneducated.
Beyonce's Lemonade: Cheating, Forgiveness, and Growth
Don't have an hour to watch Beyonce's new visual album? It's okay, I did for you. (Though really, you should find time...) I went into this film knowing nothing about the plot, and I feel like it is best if you do the same. Below the cut on each block I provide the transcription. Certain parts are quite long so for the full spoken work, please visit Bustle. Intuition We begin with hauntingly silent images. There is no movement and you find yourself holding your breath without realizing. Here starts the monologue that chronicles a cheating relationship from the very start. Song lyrics: "I pray you catch me whispering." --------------- "I tried to make a home out of you but doors lead to trap doors, a stairway leads to nothing. In the tradition of men in my blood, you come home at 3 a.m. and lie to me. What are you hiding?" Denial Our leading woman transforms from her previous state. She jumps into the water, sheds her old clothes and becomes a different woman. She tries to just absorb the situation, to not let it affect her, to ignore it away. She dons a yellow dress and takes a baseball bat to the entire town. She's over the denial stage. Now, she's mad. Song lyrics: "What's worse, looking jealous or crazy?" "Can't you see there's no other man above you? What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you." -------- I tried to change, closed my mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less awake. But still inside me, coiled deep, was the need to know... are you cheating on me? Cheating? Are you cheating on me?" Anger Now we're taken to a deserted car park, where our leading woman scares the shit out of us. She spits of how stupid her lover was to lie to her, HER of all people! That he's not going to get away with it, that he doesn't know who he just messed with. In the midst of fire and darkness we are intimidated as hell. Song lyrics: "I'll give you one more try, you know I'm your life You try this shit again, you 'gon lose your wife." -------- If it's what you truly want... I can wear her skin over mine. Her hair over mine. Her hands as gloves. Her teeth as confetti. Her scalp, a cap. We can pose for a photograph all three of us. Immortalized... you and your perfect girl. Why can't you see me? Why can't you see me? Everyone else can." Apathy Now that she's sufficiently made whoever cheated on her terrified for their lives, leading lady gets on a school bus "to the club" and lets us know that she no longer "gives a fuck." She's over it and moving on. Song lyrics: "Middle fingers up, put them hands high Put it in his face, tell him "boy, bye!'" -------------------- So, what are you gonna say at my funeral now that you've killed me? Here lies the body of love of my life, whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children, both living and dead. Rest in peace, my true love, who I took for granted." Emptiness We return to the car park, filled with flames. We flash back and forth between the car park, a mansion, and a long red hallway. She seems like she's in a trance and the fear-inducing attitude she had has faded. Song lyrics: "She just killed everybody in here and I was her witness" --------- She sleeps all day. Dreams of you in both worlds. Dear moon, we blame you for floods... for the flush of blood... for men who are also wolves. We blame for the night, for the dark, for the ghosts. Loss We're taken into the city and discover our leading lady is dealing with this blow by working her ass off. She throws herself into her craft, she's the best, she's "worth every dollar." But then our red hallway is set on fire - she's burning a house down. Song lyrics: "She's too smart to crave material things, stackin' her paper" ----------------- Every fear... every nightmare... anyone has ever had. Accountability We're in a mansion, we're in a neighborhood, we're in the past and present. We hear of a child wanting desperately to be like her mother, to be strong for her, to be a woman that is not bent and broken by any man in their lives. Father, friend, or husband. Song lyrics: "Came into this world, daddy's little girl. Daddy made a soldier out of me." ----------------- You find the black tube inside her beauty case where she keeps your father's old prison letters. You desperately want to look like her. You look nothing like your mother. You look everything like your mother. Your mother is a woman and women like her cannot be contained. Did he bend your reflection? Did he make you forget your own name? Did he convince you he was a god? Am I talking about your husband or your father? Reformation From the loud anthem of accountability, we're taken back to stark silence. We're in an empty stadium as we watch our leading woman come to terms with what is happening. She tries to see the other side, if there is another side. Perhaps if she changes her view she can change the situation. Song lyrics: "9 times out of 10 I know you're lying, and 9 times out of 10 I know you're trying, So i'm trying to be fair." "Cause you are my life line." ----------------- Why do you deny yourself heaven? Why do you consider yourself undeserving? Why are you afraid of love? You think it's not possible for someone like you. But you are the love of my life. You are the love of my life. You are the love of my life. Forgiveness We're taken to a peaceful place filled with books and music, a fire place. This is where our leading lady accepts and forgives. She is willing to try again but only if its a real try, if they're both committed. Jay-Z now makes his appearance. Confirming that this isn't fiction - Beyonce isn't playing any role but her own. Song lyrics: "And your heart is broken cause I walked away Show me your scars and I won't walk away And I know I promised that I couldn't stay, baby Every promise don't work out that way." ------------- Baptize me... now that reconciliation is possible. If we're gonna heal, let it be glorious. Do you remember being born? Are you thankful for the hips that cracked? Resurrection In resurrection we are shown women holding their lost loves ones (including the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown and countless others.) A new beginning, but never forgetting. --------------- So how we supposed to lead our children to the future? What do we do? How do we lead them? Love. L-O-V-E, love. Hope Now Beyonce is determined to move forward with power, new strength, and freedom. She will not let her freedom "rot in hell." She will get everything she deserves, everyone will get what they deserve. Song lyrics: "Freedom freedom cut me lose Freedom freedom where are you cause I need freedom too." ---------- The nail technician pushed my cuticles back... turns my hand over, stretches the skin on my palm and says, "I see your daughters and their daughters." Redemption The wounds have closed and Beyonce says that the process, while it was heart breaking, has made her stronger, opened her eyes, and gave her a new purpose. The concept of Lemonade was inspired by her grandmother. She was a strong woman who made lemonade since her life gave her plenty of lemons. --------------------- Grandmother, the alchemist, you spun gold out of this hard life, conjured beauty from the things left behind. Found healing where it did not live. I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade. My grandma said "Nothing real can be threatened." True love brought salvation back into me. With every tear came redemption and my torturer became my remedy. So we're gonna heal. We're gonna start again. You've brought the orchestra, synchronized swimmers. After you've digested this, how do you feel about this open letter about infidelity?

If Celebrities Were Just Ordinary People
1. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West We know Kimye as being somewhat as American royalty. Kanye being an overly confident singer/rapper and Kim Kardashian maintaining her reality show and massive business empire. But in a parallel universe, Mr. West is working at an insurance company while Kim works as a dental assistant. They are your average middle class family living outside of San Diego. They named their child Stacey West and they were unable to have another child due to Kim's infertility. The medical costs would have been far too much to afford to try to have another child. 2. Beyoncé and Jay-Z Beyoncé and Jay-Z are artists making millions of dollars. Bey is Queen B and they are worldly known.

Like who would name their kid a color? 3. Jennifer Aniston One of the hottest and loved middle-aged celebrities out there. Aniston is a legend in Hollywood.

Rihanna She seems to always be pushing the envelope and doesn't care if she's seen naked or not. She knows she's a sex symbol even though it's not her goal. Rihanna has award after award given to her and the radio keeps playing her songs. However, in a parallel universe, Rihanna is a realtor in Atlanta, Georgia. When she moved to the United States, she realized Atlanta to be an affordable, cultural, and fulfilling city. It also was home to a strong christian community and she felt very welcomed.

EPOS System and Its Working
EPOS systems are a short form of Electronic Point of Sales. In earlier days, the paper was considered very important in business, i.e., all the records were written manually on the paper, and the then filed these papers. At the end of the year of 6 months, they reviewed them to check to total loss or profit gained in the business. In modern Business, EPOS systems are the answer for this stack of papers collected and writing every transaction manually on paper; you need to keep EPOS systems installed at your place for the automatic updating of each transaction and sales/ purchase done in the business. In advanced EPOS systems, you may find a Touch screen monitor part of the display unit, which you normally find in systems. For more convenience, you can also include additional hardware devices such as barcode scanners, printers, etc., which should be attached to your computer. You can include these devices as per your requirements in the business. These are the additional resources you may or may not include that make no difference in your business. Besides these, you can also include weighing scales, mobile PDA, which is referred to as Personal Digital Assistants, tablets, customer displays, cash draws, and chip and pin. So the people manufacturing systems make them as per the customer's requirements. With these additional devices attached to your EPOS system, you can use them in multipurpose ways. sentinel epos systems are differentiated into two different types, namely Modular systems and Integrated system. The major difference between these EPOS systems is that your display unit and computer come together in integrated systems. Additional devices, if required are attached to this single unit. Whereas in Modular EPOS systems, a computer and display system are two different components and other devices are connected to display unit which gives you more flexibility in the working. Also these systems come with particular software which will guide you in handling your business departments more accurately. This software used in the working systems is much more advanced than any pharmacy or retail store. Depending on the systems for the type of industries, this software is manufactured, such as software for handling hotel reservations, making bills for medical purposes, or any software required for a restaurant. You have to give the input through keyboard, and the will provide a touch screen monitor or even through barcode scanners and the desired output through display unit and printers. People are using EPOS systems because they work very fast and are much easier to use and maintain.
