updated:

This is started yesterday and since there is no solution for this. Here what I’m getting while loading my other site (www.voothemes.com) which is created by me for blogger themes.

blogger custom Domain Not Loading

Blogger custom domain not working, it giving me an error message the blog is not available. However I can login to my blogger panel (Dashboard) and do editing and publishing posts. Only thing in site not appear via custom domain.

Here are few popular domain names which I found that have the same problem.
  1. http://www.bloggerbuster.com/
  2. http://bloggertricks.com/
  3. http://www.nitecruzr.net/
  4. http://www.blogdoctor.me/

Blogger Buster

Surely I know all these blogs are hosted at blogger.

I have done lots of research for a solution however there is none of articles regarding this problem yet.

I have posted this in blogger help also check this out:

------
Now it's passed 24 hours regarding this issue and I was done lots of research to find out the problem here what I got with the domains which uses ghs.google.com when pinged.
slt blocks ghs.google.com
This is really bad situation if this continues definitely I’ll move on other ISP otherwise keeping such a connection is pointless. I was ask SLT for help and waiting for their replay. In other hand they are blocking peoples from millions of good resource. So I’m still waiting for a good replay.

Grid computing is quickly gaining popularity due to its ability to maximize the efficiency of computing sources as well as its ability to solve large problems with considerably fewer computing power.

4. Grid Server - Grid Servers are servers designed to provide a simplified approach to enabling application components to execute across the whole computing infrastructure (the grid).

Dedicated Server Hosting Definitions

1. Dedicated Hosting - The definition of Dedicated Hosting is when, unlike with Managed hosting, the client is given full control over the leased server.Dedicated-Server-Hosting

2. Dedicated Server - The definition of a dedicated server is a form of internet hosting in which the client rents an entire server for their exclusive use. Advantages to dedicated servers include increased reliability from being located in Data Centers with redundant power sources and HVAC systems, as well as fewer overheads and a larger return on investment.

3. Dedicated Server Hosting - The definition of Dedicated Server Hosting is the provision of an exclusive, private server. Advantages to dedicated servers include increased reliability from being located in Data Centers with redundant power sources and HVAC systems, as well as fewer overheads and a larger return on investment.

4. Dedicated Web Hosting - A type of Internet hosting where the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of an operating system, hardware, etc. Server administration can usually be provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers, similar to collocation facilities, providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems.

5. Dedicated Web Server Hosting - The definition of dedicated web hosting is a type of internet hosting where the client/customer rents an entire server, and does not share the server. Dedicated servers are most often located in data centers.

Cloud Terms and Definitions

1. Cloud Application - The "top" layer of the Cloud Pyramid where "applications" are run and interacted with via a web-browser. Cloud Applications are tightly controlled, leaving little room for modification.Cloud Computing server

Examples: Gmail or SalesForce.com.

2. Cloud Center - A data center in the "cloud" utilizing standards-based data center-like infrastructure.

3. Cloud Computing - On-demand self-service Internet infrastructure where you pay-as-you-go and use only what you need, all managed by a browser, application or API. Cloud computing is broken up into multiple segments including: Cloud Infrastructure, Cloud Platforms and Cloud Applications. (See "Cloud Pyramid")

4. Cloud Hosting - A type of internet hosting where the client leases virtualizes, dynamically scalable infrastructure on an as-needed basis. Users frequently have the choice of operating system and other infrastructure components. Typically cloud hosting is self-service, billed hourly or monthly, and controlled via a web interface or API.

5. Cloud Infrastructure - The "bottom" layer of the Cloud Pyramid is the delivery of computer infrastructure through par virtualization. This includes servers, networks and other hardware appliances delivered as either Infrastructure Web Services or "cloud centers". Full control of the infrastructure is provided at this level. Examples include GoGrid or Amazon Web Services.

6. Cloud Platform - The "middle" layer of the Cloud Pyramid which provides a computing platform or framework (e.g., .NET, Ruby on Rails, or Python) as a service or stack. Control is limited to that of the platform or framework, but not at a lower level (server infrastructure). Examples include: Google AppEngine or Microsoft Azure.

7. Cloud Providers - Providers whose product/platform is based on vitalization of computing resources and a utility-based payment model.

8. Cloud Pyramid - A visual representation of Cloud Computing layers where differing segments are broken out by functionality. Simplified version includes: Infrastructure, Platform and Application layers.

9. Cloud Servers - Virtualized servers running Windows or Linux operating systems that are instantiated via a web interface or API. Cloud Servers behave in the same manner as physical ones and can be controlled at an administrator or root level, depending on the server type and Cloud Hosting provider.

10. GoGrid - GoGrid is Serve Path’s Cloud Hosting division. With GoGrid you can setup and scale your server hosting quickly and easily from any web browser. GoGrid is the perfect platform for hosting ecommerce, Web 2.0, and web applications throughout the development cycle—from initial development, to a staging environment for QA to a full production environment, GoGrid provides you with the right amount of computing power at the right time and with the same root access and standard OS installs you’d expect from a dedicated server.

11. RightScale - RightScale provides a cloud computing platform and consulting services that enable companies to create scalable web solutions running on Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS)

A virtual dedicated server (VDS) also called as a virtual private server (VPS). This appears to the user as a dedicated server but is actually installed on a computer serving multiple Web sites. A single computer can have several VDSs, each one withVirtual Dedicated Server VDS its own operating system (OS) that runs the hosting software for a particular user.

The hosting software for each VDS can include a Web server program, a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program, a mail server program and specialized applications for activities such as e-commerce and blogging.

The VPS alternative is often chosen by small businesses that need a customized Web site but cannot afford a dedicated server. Another useful aspect of VPS technology is the ability of a single subscriber to maintain multiple virtual servers. For example, a Web site owner might use one server for the production-level Web site and the other for a "dummy site" that can be used to test planned updates, modifications or new programs.

Virtual dedicated servers offer many of the capabilities and features of dedicated servers, including admin (root) access and dedicated IP addresses, but at a much lower price. However, as a virtual dedicated server is, indeed, virtually dedicated, the customer, in fact, shares the server space with a small number of other customers. However, because each virtual dedicated server is effectively isolated from other accounts on the server, the user has full control over the server space. As well, virtual dedicated server plans feature very high performance and available disk space and bandwidth.

Virtual dedicated servers enable hosting providers to offer services are based on the concept of partitions on mainframes that allow each division to function as a virtual standalone server dedicated to a single customer.

To ensure high and reliable performance for all accounts, server boxes are partitioned in such a way that each virtual dedicated server operates almost entirely independently of the other accounts that share the server space. This means that with a virtual dedicated server, you will enjoy consistent, high performance, even when usage peaks on the main server.

Virtual dedicated servers are particularly useful for companies and individuals that run higher-traffic Web sites or complex applications and thus need the bandwidth, consistent performance, and flexibility of a virtual dedicated server.
