|The e-commerce-inc.com network works in conjunction
with independant website hosting companies to provide
site building and management tools to the website owners
Websites are hosted on remote servers
maintained by the independant hosting companies. The
website hosting clients use the e-commerce network to
build and manage their websites and maintain real time
data backups. The e-commerce network also provides credit
card processing and secure server services as part of the
e-Panel suite of programs.
Programs run from the web servers with local data. All
data and page changes are done in the central NAS servers
at e-commerce-inc.com and transferred to the local
servers at the website hosting companies in real time.
This prevents any lag time in data throughput required to
transverse multiple networks.
As changes occur on the main websites data is sent to
the e-commerce NAS to be updated. Changes in the reverse
direction would include posts to forums, blogs,
guestbooks or other programs that have direct page
|A significant advantage of using e-commerce as the
sitebuilder for websites is available system resources.
The server loads are greatly reduced with all site
builder functions managed in the central network and not
directly on the websites under heavy traffic loads. The
performance gains are enhanced by the streemlined
programming that provides e-commerce functions on the
main websites. Further setting limits on database sizes
and delivery rates no program can consume excessive
resources which would otherwise cause delays in page
loads or program functions.
While an independant
hosting provider can have just one basic PC with minimal
resources, the potentail of that server is expanded
greatly once plugged into the e-commerce network. By
sharing hard drive space and CPU resources with the
central network the hosting clients get unprecedented
perfomance and reliability.
|All independant servers are monitored from the cental
network and failed servers are quickly rebuilt in a
smooth automated process on spare servers at the
independent website hosting companies datacenter from the
e-commerce NAS backup data. This process bypasses the
need for local backups and storage servers decreasing the
operational costs and labor needed to provide a quality
|Domain Name Servers
|All DNS services are provided by the e-commerce
network. Through ns1.e-commerce-inc.com and ns2.e-commerce-inc.com
all mail and server records are maintained. This is
another service that the website hosting provider does
not have to maintain. By using a cental DNS system all
records can be maintained automatically and modified as
needed by the website hosting clients. If records are
maintained at external DNS providers then e-commerce-inc.com
would not have the ability to make updates and control
network flows in an efficient manner. While it is not a
required element for hosting providers to use our network
name servers it is preferred.
|Since all data is stored at the remote dataceter and
the e-commerce datacenter all data is redundant in
multiple locations making the likelyhood of any data loss
near impossible. Independant datacenters can also use
local clusters to run websites that need more resources
than a single server can provide which even furthers the
redundancy and performance of the websites.
