Suwanee, Georgia – (The Hosting News) – January 16, 2008 – Web hosting company, Fat Jack Hosting (formerly Frontier Power Hosting), has acquired HostMyProxies.com, one week into the new year, increasing its lineup of web hosts in order to provide web hosting to proxy web sites.
The newest acquisition of HostMyproxies.com takes Fat Jack Hosting into previously uncharted territory. The web hosting provider is now positioned to provide proxy Web sites with the same high-quality hosting and support with which it treats its current clients. Proxy Web site owners who would like to see the server quality, speed and affordable prices Fat Jack Hosting offers can do so online at Fat Jack’s website.
According to the company, a proxy server services the requests of clients by forwarding them to other servers. Because proxy web sites allow a browser to remain anonymous while viewing other sites, however, they are often frowned upon by hosting providers, which is not the case with Fat Jack Hosting.
Nicole Silverstone, Spokesperson at Fat Jack Hosting noted, ”We are thrilled to be able to welcome proxy Web sites into our ever-expanding fold. We are constantly on the lookout for marketing methods that will gain us greater exposure. The acquisition of HostMyProxies.com grants us that exposure. We currently have never offered any proxy hosting, so the purchase of Host My Proxies will allow us to add this hosting niche to our lineup of products.”
Other benefits that Fat Jack Hosting expects to reap from the acquisition include: 1) a modern, unique Web 2.0 layout and design that will easily integrate with its billing software; 2) a first-page ranking on Google for the terms ”proxy host” and ”proxy hosting”; 3) 4,000 backlinks according to Yahoo Site Explorer and 4) the ability to cater to anonymizing, transparent, non-transparent and reverse proxy servers as well as caching technologies.
Fat Jack Hosting sees caching technologies as being emerging technologies with the requirements for heavy bandwidth usage, like video, audio and others. Indeed, according to a 2006 paper, ”Web Users Want Rich Internet Applications” by R. Rogowski, ”Users expect interactive content and rich experiences.” As a result, if they want to survive, more and more Web sites will be forced to meet their customers’ multimedia demands. And with the addition of HostMyProxies.com to its repertoire, Fat Jack Hosting is now poised to seamlessly handle such sites’ weightier bandwidth requirements.
In addition,. Fat Jack recently completed a virtualization agreement with SWsoft server virtualization technology firm. The deployment of the new software will afford Fat Jack customers with the latest and most stable virtualization environment. The SWsoft deployment will be a cost-effective solution for Fat Jack’s hosting customers. According to the company, for eight years, the web host provider has conducted an investigation process which revealed that SWsoft would be the best choice to provide its virtualization and automation software. Its product line includes Virtuozzo, the state of the art operating system virtualization solution. After exhaustive testing, the web host concluded that SWsoft’s suite of virtualization products met and exceeded other software’s capabilities.
Fat Jack offers ongoing 24/7 phone and email support, managed email deliverability on a daily basis, ip addresses for search engine marketing and email marketing. The company’s stable Linux servers run Apache 1.23 and Zend All servers are inside their own location in Atlanta for security and management purposes, rather than a co-located or reseller system. The company offers the latest stable version of PHP 5.2 and the version of MySQL, a 5.0+ Multi-cycle backup, and Multiple Peer Network Connections (Dual Redundant Fiber Connections).
