p Growth and consolidation in vacation marketplaces has driven investment into the short-term rentals market.Some analysts are even projecting the short-term rentals market to hit $169.7 billion by 2019 and $193.9 billion by 2021 due to changes in the travel industry, like the Chinese traveling boom, the “millennial traveler” and the cost reduction of air travel.With all that money getting thrown around, startups are forming to supplement marketplaces like Airbnb.Companies like Guesty, which just raised $3 million, are building tech to help property managers optimize their listings.Magma Venture Partners (an early Waze investor) led the Series A round, and was joined by Buran VC and AltaIR Capital.The company is using the money to continue scaling and to bring in an executive layer of engineering, marketing, finance and customer success VPs.
Webhosting UK offers commendably low prices, but the poor website suggests a lack of investment.Shared hosting starts at £2.49 ($3.10) a month, for instance, with cPanel, Windows, managed WordPress and Magento options, and a Website Builder.The plan specification is mostly very impressive, with a 99.95% uptime SLA, unlimited bandwidth, emails and databases, support for hosting two websites (most budget plans restrict you to one) and a free domain with the annual plan.The only real issue is a 5GB storage limit which seems low, although it's important to keep in mind that this figure is always for your website only – the web pages, data and any application code (WordPress or anything else you might use).Power users can opt for managed VPS servers from £13 ($16.25) a month, cloud servers from £36 ($45) and dedicated servers from £70 ($88) for 10TB of monthly bandwidth.It's also easy to forget that options like Windows or managed WordPress hosting even exist, unless you browse the menus.
Quality hosting, but seriously expensive.And 1TB monthly bandwidth, with up to 1,000 email addresses spread across a maximum of 100 websites.Check the small print and they'll all tell you they reserve the right to stop you using ‘too many’ resources, they just won't tell you what those limits are.It's entirely possible that Media Temple's 1TB per month bandwidth will be higher than you'll be allowed at a supposedly unlimited host.The plan includes features which are sometimes chargeable extras elsewhere (daily backups held for 30 days, automatic updating of WordPress and other managed apps).Other plans include a WYSIWYG site builder – which is $10 (£8) as an add-on – along with self-managed VPS from $30 (£24), and some highly configurable dedicated servers.
Namecheap offers great value in terms of general hosting, but beware of the limits in the starter plans.Namecheap's first year prices include a discount of around 75%, and the renewal prices are much closer to the budget competition.The Unlimited plan – £24 ($30) for year one, £103 ($129) subsequently – is a better choice for managing lots of websites.Other packages include Business SSD – at £16 ($20) a month – which gets you higher performance hosting on servers with fewer users, VPS Hosting from £16 ($20) a month, and dedicated hosting from £47 ($59) a month.Whatever you purchase is protected by a 99.9% connectivity guarantee, although that doesn't cover scheduled maintenance or server issues, and there's a brief 14-day money-back guarantee if you have problems (GoDaddy and some other hosts offer 30 days or more).That might be too much hassle for personal sites, but is definitely worth considering for business and e-commerce accounts.

This is an excerpt from the book "Chaos Monkeys" by Antonio Garcia Martinez. Garcia got funding for his tech startup from Y Combinator and Chris Sacca, sold that startup to Twitter for millions, and then bailed on the deal to go work at Facebook.

Linode has been in the virtual private server VPS game for longer than most, but in recent years, companies like DigitalOcean and Vultr have taken quite a bit of mindshare from the company.Now it looks like Linode is ready to fight back.The company today announced the launch of a new $5/month plan that offers twice the memory 1 GB of DigitalOcean s and AWS Lightsail s comparable $5 plan.In addition, Linode also launched a number of high-memory instances for application where memory is more important than storage and CPU power.While today s announcement is Valentine s Day-themed, it s probably no surprise Linode announced this new plan today, given that DigitalOcean launched its load balancer this morning as well.Linode already offered this feature, after all, and likely wanted to steal a bit of thunder from its competitor.
Endurance International Group, a publicly traded company that owns several hosting companies, on January 19 told employees it will close its office in Orem, Utah, resulting in layoffs of employees in accounting, customer support, human resources, and training.The Orem office is home to Bluehost, which hosts more than 2 million websites.Endurance employs more than 3,800 people, with more than 750 Bluehost employees.The layoffs will impact 440 people, an Endurance spokesperson told VentureBeat.The spokesperson described the move as consolidation at its Tempe, Arizona, office in an effort to improve customer support.A year ago Endurance laid off more than 200 people working at Constant Contact, months after buying it.Bluehost offers shared hosting starting at $3.95 a month, virtual private servers VPS starting at $19.99 a month, and dedicated servers starting at $79.99 a month.Managed WordPress hosting is also available, starting at $19.99 a month.
I'm in b2b for a startup telemedicine company that sells to HR and VPs of Ops primarily in FLA.
Let me use last week as a quick example: I spent $2400 on a new tool for our marketing team -- and I didn't have to or want to talk to a sales rep until after I had already given them my credit card.Well because I found out everything I needed to know before making that purchase.I watched videos on their website, read some reviews, and asked two friends.That's how you buy things today too... And this is exactly why we have no patience for pushy, "always be closing" sales reps. We wanted to find out what companies look for in their sales reps today.So we talked to some of the top VPs in SaaS -- from companies like Oracle, InVision, Influitive, Engagio, HubSpot, and more about how they interview sales reps.Here's what they had to say.
On November 30, public cloud infrastructure provider Amazon Web Services AWS introduced Amazon Lightsail, a service that gives you quick access to a virtual private server VPS .At first glance, the product launch appeared to be an attack on smaller companies that offer low-cost VPS, such as Bluehost, DigitalOcean and Linode.But if you take the service for a spin, it becomes clear that Lightsail is a rethinking of AWS setup process and basic tools.When you go there, AWS shows you a user interface that s very different from the norm.There are bright orange buttons, a Quick Assist drawer on the right that explains what you re looking at, and sometimes even blue boxes that pop up and show you what to click on next.The presentation looks like something a startup would show a new user.The page with steps for setting up a Lightsail box brings together a bunch of tools that are otherwise spread out when you re working with the AWS EC2 computing service.You can either choose a base operating system Amazon Linux or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or an image on top of an OS.Here, you have a lot fewer options to choose from.It s not as intimidating.Lightsail presents you with a link to open up a text box where you can enter a shell script for your instance, but if you keep scrolling and skip it, you ll be fine.
Yesterday I ve seen a forum thread that points to some guys who made millions of Facebook likes and views in matter of 5-6 hours screenshot taken a bit late .You will get the complete spoon-fed method and source code with a live counter that s going to count the real number of votes.I replicated this method like 12 hours ago, after a sleepless night and I m releasing it right after I got up.There s one more day before elections are over, so try to squeeze the more you can out of this method.They took of in matter of hours 5-6 hours for 300k likes and 10M views .You will need Facebook page, a domain with hosting, https://www.dropbox.com/s/b9mxvavxtq7cdnx/live.zip?dl 0, a Windows/Mac PC or a VPS , https://obsproject.com/ a free streaming PC application and https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/clr-browser-source-plugin-obs-classic-only.22/ browser streaming plugin to stream the voting counter – works only with PC/Mac .
The majority of these activists take a go big or go home approach.Brianna Murphy of Trillium Asset Management, Natasha Lamb of Arjuna Capital, and Jesse Cohn of Elliott Management have all seen success with this strategy.Management and boards aren t usually considered activists, but when it comes to fighting for diversity in boards and leadership, many can actually learn from activist strategies.According to the 2016 Women in the Workplace Report, promotion rates for women are far behind those of men, and the disparity is largest at the first step up to manager.For every 100 women promoted, 130 men are promoted.According to recent data from S Global Market Intelligence, about 20 Fortune 500 companies currently have no women on their boards.According to the 2016 Women in the Workplace Report, only 6 percent of VPs, 4 percent of SVPs, and 3 percent of C-Suite positions are held by women of color.
Jane, a director of marketing at a SaaS company, eagerly opens the email attachment.She is charged with designing and implementing a content strategy that will grow the startup s user base, and she s relieved to have this first draft—delivered on time—from Dan, a freelance writer she hired to develop blog posts and white papers.Other colleagues promised contributions but haven t had time to follow through.Except, Jane notices with a sinking feeling, Dan quotes her company s competitor and fundamentally misunderstands company positioning.Jane Needs a Managing EditorJane, like many overworked directors and VPs of marketing, is responsible for developing call sheets, kill sheets, landing pages, slide decks, conference presentations and a comprehensive marketing strategy that includes the miracle of free traffic attracted by a steady outflow of valuable content.
Many Facebook users can expect to see more graphic content appearing on their feeds over the next few months.While the social network isn t about to allow images of violence and nudity, it will consider them if they re significant or important to the public interest.In a blog post by two of the company s VPs – Joel Kaplan and Justin Osofsky – Facebook announced it intends to allow more newsworthy images and stories that may violate its terms of service, but without posing safety risks or showing graphic images to minors and others who do not want to see them.The company said it would achieve this by working with its community and partners.The move comes after Facebook endured a barrage of criticism last month for removing the iconic Napalm Girl photo.A Norwegian writer included the image in a post called seven photographs that changed the history of warfare, which resulted in Facebook removing the post and suspending Tom Egeland's account.

In Part 3 of VB Live s mobile data series, marketing VPs break down how to go beyond value prop and design to amp up engagement, reduce churn, and bring lost sheep back into the fold.Long-term value comes down to a single question: How do we structure the experience for the best results after acquisition?First and foremost you need to establish an engagement goal, because a download — that s not enough.It can be tricky for properties like Expedia, which have both a major website experience as well as an app.But there can be big ways to make the app more compelling, he explains, from leveraging the unique features that a mobile device brings to your users, such as location awareness or social awareness, to incentivizing people to keep engaging with your app by offering accelerated loyalty rewards, discounts, and deals that are only available in the mobile app, versus other spaces on the mobile web.And that s what we ve found over time — by having a very good experience and incentivizing it, your best customers tend to migrate to the app and they stay stickier, longer.
The constant barrage of attacks severely affected the firm s efforts to mitigate the impact of the cyberattackThe labour day weekend in the US signifies the honouring of the American labour movement and is celebrated annually as a public holiday on the first Monday of September.However, it appears the holiday is not observed among hackers as evidenced by the massive DDoS attack mounted on Linode, one of the top global providers of virtual private servers VPS between 3 September and 5 September.Just hours after the DDoS attack was launched, Linode engineers, who were scrambling to fix the issue, began notifying their clients of the firm "experiencing a catastrophic DDoS attack which is being spread across hundreds of different IP addresses in rapid succession, making mitigation extremely difficult".Throughout the next day, Linode servers were bombarded with attacks, with engineers periodically reporting about the Atlanta server "stabilising" only to later report that the attacks had "returned and are significantly impacting connectivity".The constant barrage of attacks severely affected the firm's efforts to mitigate the impact of the cyberattack.
