“We Are The One Stop Shop For Any SMB or Entrepreneur to Come & Grow Online”- Rajiv Sodhi, GoDaddy

India has over 137 million users million users logged onto the internet, a number big enough to make it the third biggest country in terms of internet users in the world, but still relatively small keeping in perspective the country’s 1.2 billion population. The internet adoption rate in India is growing at a year on year rate of 26%, with small towns and the lower rungs of the economic ladder getting online faster than ever before. This growing internet usage is also changing the way Indian SMBs reach out to their customers. Indian SMBs with a website have 51% higher revenues, 49% more profit, and 7% broader customer bases than their offline-only counterparts, a recent industry report revealed. However, only a 5% of Indian SMBs have a web presence, reflecting a clear lack of skill, ...

“We Are Looking to Fund Our Resellers and Help Them Grow”- Shridhar Luthria, ResellerClub

A relatively low risk investment with limited startup cost, Reseller hosting is a lucrative opportunity for IT entrepreneurs looking to kick-start their own business. However, with a gazillion established web hosting firms out there claiming to provide white-label hosting solutions with customized plans, value added features and technical support, cutting through jargon and making an informed decision of choosing the right reseller hosting provider can be a herculean task. There are only few web hosting firms who’ve the right infrastructure, experience, resources and skillset in place to provide their resellers with just about anything they need to start and successfully manage their web hosting business, and ResellerClub is one such organization.

“.IN.NET Provides Businesses and Individuals With Good Quality Domain Names”- Neha Naik, .IN.NET

Internet in India is reaching small towns and the lower rungs of the economic ladder very rapidly, bridging geographical barriers and exposing consumers to the market more effectively than ever before. Brick-and-mortar stores can no longer be sufficient with the significant expansion in the variety of products available online. This growing digital influence, currently affecting $30 billion of urban consumer spending, makes getting online not an option but a necessity. However, most Indian businesses looking to get a website face a roadblock on the very first, and probably the most important step of getting online – unavailability of the domain name of their choice. With .COM mostly exhausted and .IN depleting fast, quality domain names are limited and SMBs have to settle for long si...

“CtrlS is Asia’s Largest and India’s Only Tier IV Certified Datacenter”- Prashant, CtrlS

The opening day of the recently held WHD.India 2013 had a session titled “Reaching the next level of hosting” by Prashant Jain, Director, CtrlS. It was the last session of what had been a long exhausting day with multiple sessions lined back-to-back. Spent up with the proceedings of the day, my mind had started wondering how much booze would be too much booze to drink at the succeeding ConneXion Party so as to remain sober enough to do research work for the sessions scheduled for next day. As the emcee invited Prashant on stage, I was expecting yet another run-of-the-mill session that was titled to come across as genuinely interesting and informative, but was actually rife with product pitches of the company. What followed pleasantly surprised me. One of the only three talks ou...

“DNSSEC Will Become a Standard Part of Any Offering Over time,” Dr. Burt Kaliski, Verisign

Change has been constant in almost every facet of life throughout the past, and technology industry is no exception. There is no uniformity in technology; it keeps on developing, improving, re-inventing itself, and in the process also changing the way it diffuses across the society. It’s always a pleasant sight to have people and organizations that support, facilitate and ensure adoption of these changes. If not for them, we’d still be stuck in the world of dial-up internet, huge computers, and rotary dial telephones. Heck, we wouldn’t even have been able to reach that world itself. And Verisign is one such organization. Through its efforts to ensure operational deployment of DANE, DNNSEC , IPv6 and many more protocols/products that seek to replace the traditional systems in place to...
