“As programmers we make stuff which touches lives of so many others”-Pulkit Gupta, Softaculous

Entrepreneurship has no bar on age, but nevertheless its surprising to see some youngsters making it big as entrepreneurs. In the age where most youngsters choose a conventionally safe career path, its fascinating to find people who take first steps down new roads, having complete belief in their vision. Building an Auto Installer from scratch might’ve seemed ill-fated in an industry with big players like Fantastico and Installatron. But that didn’t stop Pulkit Gupta. Born with a silver spoon, Pulkit the teenager could’ve easily followed footsteps of his father, a textile industrialist; but then the world wouldn’t have got a product that single-handedly altered the way auto-installer market worked- Softaculous. We were lucky to bag an interview with this great guy, ...

Anyone with $100/mo can setup a ‘hosting company’. Running one properly takes a lot more. – Artyom Khmelnitsky, AYKsolutions.

Very recently, we covered AYKsolutions’ launch of Linux VPS Hosting with Unmetered Bandwidth at its Chicago Datacenter on our portal. There couldn’t be any news more exciting to mark the beginning of 2013. Why? With most Linux VPS hosting plans, customers receive a fixed allocation of bandwidth per month. A sword looms over their head 24/7 because if they begin serving content with large file sizes or if the number of visitors increases then restrictive bandwidth allowances may be exceeded thus leading to an additional fee charged by the hosting provider. AYKsolutions’ newly launched Linux VPS Hosting offers a way out. With unmetered Linux VPS hosting plans, an individual can use his virtual server to its full potential without being hit with unexpected fees and they can rely on a regular,...
