Since its launch in 2011, Minecraft has become a truly global phenomenon, and the bestselling PC game of all time, with editions for almost all major platforms (even a pocket edition!), and more than 100 million registered users all over the world. With a vibrant online community and a wide range of unique add-ons and mini-games - such as Pixelmon and Skywars - there are more ways to play Minecraft than ever before. Seamless, responsive gameplay is now the industry standard, which all hosting providers offering private servers for Minecraft players (be they physical or virtual) are expected to deliver.
Streaming media has rapidly become a ubiquitous part of our personal and professional lives, with virtually everyone accessing the most popular streaming services – such as Netflix, SoundCloud, Spotify, and BBC iPlayer – through their mobile and laptop devices for up to 15 hours per week. At the time of writing, the video streaming market is expected to be worth more than $125 million by 2025.
The right website and domain name, hosted on the right platform, is vital for any organization – from startups to global leaders. However, things become more complicated if you’re looking to manage multiple websites (if you’re looking to create a site for each brand within your corporate umbrella, for example), but a multisite solution eliminates many of these concerns.
If you run an online business, such as an e-commerce website, your website will need to be highly dependable and capable of handling multiple, concurrent visits and transactions from across the globe. In order to provide your customers with this level of performance and security and to develop a strong online presence, you need to carefully select a reliable hosting service, as this is what gets your site online, so others can access it.
