P2P Web Hosting

I have an idea fo creating a P2P network - like Gnutella, eDonkey2000, or FastTrack - to be used for hosting web pages. This can minimize the cost of getting a dedicated server and domain names. A web site is a group of files (HTML, PHP, images, etc) having the same ID (protocol://site-name.com). A person can initially have thes pages on his PC and allow them to be shared by the P2P Client/Server when someone requests a page from that site the page is downloaded from the initial host, and cached on the requesters machine as well. Further requesters can retrieve the pages from any of them. The more popular the site is the more hosts it is cached on. This may also help in thecase of free-riders. One problem here is generating the site-names as they must be unique across the whole network, but I think that some distributed Naming Service Data Base can help.

  4. @Alaa, Seems that the idea is not new

    @Memo, You're right, there must be a solution for this. But it's the same problem with some Torrents too. What do they do then?

    @Rosi, Unfortunately, I do not have enough info about this.

  5. VISIT BEST WEB HOSTING 2009
    So you have put together a website or are thinking of putting one together and you are now saying to yourself, "I need web hosting". You may not have any idea what you are looking for, and here are a few ideas to keep in mind in order to find the best web hosting company on the Internet.

    1. Speed

    You want your website up quickly, so you should find a web host provider that can get you started immediately. You do not want to have to wait for days before your website can be put on the Internet. When you are ready to get it shown on the web you should have a provider that can help you get it up very quickly and easily.

    2. Price

    You will want to make sure that you are getting good value for your money. You should look at a hosting review site in order to do comparison shopping and see what is the most affordable and highly recommended web hosting company available.

    3. Guarantee

    You will want to check and make sure that you are offered a money-back guarantee if there is anything you do not like about the web hosting company. A good company will give a no hassle guarantee, and the best company will also offer a very cheap trial offer so that you can try out their services and be sure that they promise what they deliver.

    Getting your website onto the Internet can be done on the same day as you sign up with your Internet provider as long as you have found a good one that can do it for you. I have found a great provider that got my website up on the Internet on the same day I signed up with them. If you are saying "I need web hosting", and you need it right now, then you should only consider companies that are big enough to get you up and running immediately.

    For hosting reviews that will show you the best web hosting company that can get your new website up right away please VISIT BEST WEB HOSTING 2009
