Bola88 Embarrassment

 

 

Daniel Negreanu recently told me, “Phil, I was absolutely embarrassed for you as I watched you play no-limit hold’em last week in the PPT (Professional Poker Tour) tournament. I think you’re too focused on all of the great business opportunities you have right now.” Um … OK, Daniel. It was a bit harsh, but I took it in the spirit it was intended. (“Phil — pull your head out and start playing no-limit hold’em the way you know how to play.”)

 

Speaking of playing some great poker, Daniel had a year for the record books. I will tell you a lot more about that when I finally get around to writing my “Champion of the Year” award column, in which I’ll announce that Daniel won the award and absolutely dominated poker’s biggest events in 2004. By the way, he also started 2005 very well with third-place finishes in the World Poker Tour event at the Jack Binion World Poker Open and the Professional Bola88 Poker Tour (PPT) event at the L.A. Poker Classic.

 

In any case, let’s take a closer look at my “embarrassing” play in the PPT event at the L.A. Poker Classic. The first hand I played, I raised to $1,400 to go with the Ahearts Qhearts from late position and was called by an amateur. After a flop of Aspades Jspades 4hearts, I checked, my opponent bet out $1,500, and I raised, making it $6,000 to go. My opponent called me fairly quickly.

 

The turn card was the 5spades. I checked again. On the flop, I felt that my opponent had a flush draw. Now, after I checked, he checked as quickly as I’ve ever seen anyone check. He nearly checked out of turn, before I had checked. What a tell! Now, I knew he had made a flush, right? I wish …

 

The river was the 8clubs, and I decided to bet out $4,000. Of course, if my opponent raised me here, I would have a very easy laydown. And he did just that, moving all in for another $8,100. It was bad enough that I had bet $4,000, so there was no way that I would “call off” another $8,100, an amount that would really hurt my chip standing and nearly cripple me. But suddenly, I called (my opponent had the Kspades Qspades — the nut flush). I guess I’m beginning to see what Daniel was talking about!

 

Next up, about 20 minutes later, I made it $1,400 to go with the Adiamonds Qdiamonds. I was called by Phi Nyguen, who is an excellent no-limit hold’em player. He and I have made it far together in many no-limit hold’em events over the last few years. The flop came down K-Q-9, I checked, and Phi checked.

 

Now, a 3 came off, and I bet out $2,100. Phi called, but I sensed that he had hit a set of threes — as he looked like he wanted to raise. A deuce came off on the river and I bet out a “defensive” $2,100. There was no way I could call any raise from Phi in this situation, right? (Sound familiar?) I had sensed he was strong on the previous round of betting, and I bet out to make sure I showed him I had something; my betting pattern had shown some strength.

 

Phi raised me $4,000, and for some strange reason I disregarded everything I had sensed and called him. He showed me the Jdiamonds 10diamonds; he had flopped a straight. At this point, I began to berate myself out loud; I don’t berate just my opponents! I said, “Phil, what are you thinking? You called off at least $16,000 in chips. You never would have called in these situations in the past. Stop playing like someone else, and start playing your game!”

 

Next up, while I was complaining about Phi calling my raise with the Jdiamonds 10diamonds, I raised to $1,400 with the Kdiamonds Jdiamonds. This time, Tom McEvoy called me with the 9spades 8spades, and the flop came down Khearts 8diamonds 6diamonds. I checked my top pair and flush draw to Tom, who sized me up and decided to bet my last $4,100. I called him instantly, and the 10diamonds came off on the turn to end that pot.

 

The very next hand, I picked up K-K and just called $400. Tom made it $1,600 to go, everyone else folded, and I moved all in. Tom beat me into the pot with his A-A, but at least he had only $4,000 or so. After all of the boardcards were dealt faceup and Tom was reaching to collect the pot, he said, “Now, that’s justice.” I thought to myself, “What? A-A over K-K is as unlucky as it gets; how is that justice? Was it justice because his 9-8 didn’t outdraw me in the last hand when I was a huge favorite all the way?”

 

In any case, I really do love Tom McEvoy, and for this reason his comment didn’t bother me too much; I know that he didn’t mean anything by it. However, if someone else had said that, I would have told the other pros to watch out for the guy and his bad etiquette. Tom is absolutely a first-class guy all the way (even if he did bust me out about an hour later).

 

How did Tom bust me? I moved all in for $6,000 with the Khearts 7hearts, and he called me with the Kspades Qspades. Daniel was right, as I’m embarrassed just writing this column about my PPT play!

 

 

 

Togel

Cracking Quartet of Quarter Togel Finals

 

 

What a fantastic quartet of Last Eight matches. They had everything – shocks, drama, red cards, controversy, goals, own goals, penalty’s, penalty misses, penalty shootouts. And after all the talk of the South American countries dominating this World Cup (even predictions of the semi finals being an all Latin affair) the semi final stage has a very European flavour.

 

First up Holland shocked everybody’s favourites, Brazil, who lost their cool and lost the match 2-1 from a winning position. Felipe Melo was dismissed for a cynical & nasty stamp on that cheeky chappy Arjen Robben and the Samba Stars imploded under Dutch pressure. Wesley Sneijder validated my decision to drop him from my dream team by scoring two, although one was definitely on OG so how FIFA can give it to the Dutchman is a mystery.

 

Following this first shock came Africa’s last Togel hope, Ghana. The vuvuzelas were in full cry and Sulley Muntari turned them up to eleven with a long range cracker just before the break. That man Diego Forlan hit back with a sweet free kick that caught Kingson out and the 1-1 draw was played out through extra time with the match ebbing and flowing as each side applied the pressure.

Both teams had chances in extra time but nothing could prepare them for the drama that unfolded as the clock hit 120 minutes. One last assault from Ghana saw Luis Suarez earn this tournament’s “Hand of God” accolade as he batted the jabulani away with his hands. He was off and Asamoah Gyan was handed the opportunity to write himself & Ghana into the history books. This he duly did by smashing his penalty against the bar as Montevideo breathed a sigh of relief.

 

Gyan admirably tucked away the first penalty in the shootout for his own immediate “Psycho” moment but he was inconsolable as the Uruguayans won it 4-2 to reach their first semi final for 40 years – Sebastian Abreu’s winning penalty was as cool and cocky as you will ever see under such pressure.

With one of the favourites out it was the turn of another, Argentina, to step up to the plate and restore some South American confidence. Nobody read the script to Germany though…again…and they hammered Maradona’s men 4-0 in a result that makes England’s look reasonably good.

 

How do the Germans do it? Time after time after time. After time. In the 17 World Cups they have contested they have reached the quarter finals or better in 14 of them, appearing in six finals and winning it three times. They look the most likely champions again as Spain stutter along and Holland might just come up short.

Germany’s defence is miserly as usual but it is their attacking play that has been jaw dropping at times. They counter attack with such speed, fluency and precision that teams have folded under the onslaught. With a midfield supremely marshalled by Bastian Schweinsteiger and propelled by the creative flair of Mesut Ozil, it is a bedrock that their deadly strikeforce can revel in.

 

Miroslav Klose is on course for the Golden Boot for the second tournament in a row and is one short of Ronaldo’s all time record of 15. He has been Germany’s main threat with Lukas Podolski who between them scored 9 goals for the club last season. Couple that with Thomas Muller who had not scored for his country before the finals and now has four, and you wonder how they manage to peak at just the right time, every time. Germany have now scored four goals in three separate matches. The mind boggles.

Nobody wants to take on the Germans but if any team has the confidence and ability it is Spain. They narrowly passed their test again with a scrappy 1-0 win over a solid & unspectacular Paraguay but it could have been so different. Spain have yet to spark in this tournament and are grateful to their talisman, David Villa, for his five goals that have carried them through and put him out front in the Golden Boot race.

Villa got the winner once again in the last ten minutes but the match hinged on a dramatic few minutes on the hour mark in which Paraguay were awarded a penalty following Gerard Pique’s best Hulk Hogan impression in wrestling Oscar Cardozo to the ground. A nervy looking Cardozo dusted himself off and tickled the ball into Iker Casillas’ hands.

Spain went straight up the other end and won themselves a penalty through David Villa which was coolly put away by Xabi Alonso. However the ref had spotted encroachment and ordered a retake which Alonso switched to the opposite side and was out-guessed by Villar to keep the score a 0-0. In the melee, as Paraguay scrambled the ball clear, Spain shoud have had another penalty as Villar tripped Cesc Fabregas but the ref inexplicably ignored Spanish protests.

In the end it mattered not as Spain got the job done with the aid of their main goal threat and three posts. Pedro was set up cleverly by Andres Iniesta but his shot cannoned back off the post, into Villa’s path who scooped it onto the other post. The ball rolled across the line, hit the left hand post again and finally trickled into the net to put the favourites through to a German showdown. That match will be a belter.

City Togel Hongkong In For Milner

 

 

Reports today are suggesting that moneybags, Manchester City, have made a “big money” offer for Aston Villa’s versatile midfielder, James Milner. £20m+ is the figure being quoted. It’s been a fairly meteoric rise for a player that until very recently many still considered as average at best.

 

The season just gone has been Milner’s finest to date but that’s against some average competition. He showed promise at Leeds but became one dimensional, he flattered to deceive at Newcastle where he habitually wasted Togel Hongkong possession, he was then shunted out to Villa on loan and after a year back at Newcastle in their relegation season he signed for Villa permanently for £12m. This is where Milner finally began to find his feet.

 

He was perhaps unfortunate at Newcastle that the man who signed him, the late Sir Bobby Robson, was unceremoniously sacked and replaced by Graeme Souness who wasn’t keen on Milner’s attributes. It was David O’Leary who took him to Villa on loan with reasonable success but it is under Martin O’Neill that he has flourished. Only 23 he has already played under 13 different managers (including caretakers) and cites the stability at Villa as a big reason for his improvement.

 

What shined through Milner’s Newcastle years and protracted move to Villa was a calm level headed attitude learned from senior players around him during his evolving career. This attitude has seen Milner become the mature player he is today.

 

Able to understand and carry out instruction, he allies this with an understanding of football that enables him to play in several positions. These are precisely the qualities that England coach Fabio Capello likes in a player and precisely the reason why Milner is a cert for the final 23 that will travel to South Africa.

 

His current form and performances over the past year cannot be argued with and he has eclipsed the likes of club mate Ashley Young. He fully deserves his place in the squad but is he good enough for the first team? That remains to be seen and he is perhaps more of a safety valve to cover a few positions and be available to protect a lead should the need arise.

 

He doesn’t have the creativity of Joe Cole or Steven Gerrard. He doesn’t have the midfield goal threat of Frank Lampard. He doesn’t have the blistering pace of Aaron Lennon or Theo Walcott. He doesn’t even cross as well as Adam Johnson.

 

He does most things very well but jack of all trades is often master of none and I don’t see a starting position for Milner. He is probably the direct replacement for Owen Hargreaves; a confident assured penalty taker (another reason to have him in reserve given England’s major tournament shootout record) who can cover the full length of both flanks and play right through midfield.

 

Fair play to the lad, he’s proved me wrong and the next couple of steps in his career could see him become a World Cup winner and key component of the most ambitious club side in the world. Now that’s progress.

Real Madrid v Liverpool – Dr. Joel Rookwood Togel Hongkong

 

 

When deliberating over European football’s most prestigious and illustrious names, the identities of a select group of clubs dominate the mindset. Real Madrid justifiably top that list, with AC Milan and Liverpool completing a trio of institutions which, having won the ‘Champions League’ on five occasions, lay claim to ownership of a European Cup. Ignore individual celebrities, stadium dimensions and global marketing ploys – this quintet of ultimate victories serves as the only mark of greatness. As a consequence, when the paths of any of these clubs cross in a competitive fixture, the eyes of the footballing world are upon them. Liverpool have played AC Milan in two Champions League finals in the last four years, although despite comparable records in the European Cup, Real Madrid have not been regular opponents for Liverpool in recent years. Indeed Liverpool’s only previous European Cup tie against Real Madrid was the final of 1981. That game ended in a 1-0 victory for Liverpool. The ‘Super Sixteen’ round of this year’s competition has seen the two heavyweights drawn against each other again, with Liverpool supporters hoping for a similar outcome against the Spanish champions.

 

An estimated ten thousand Liverpool supporters travelled to Madrid for the first leg, hoping to witness a famous encounter. A little bored of the monotony of ‘in-and-out’ trips to see Liverpool in Europe, I opted for an extended venture this time around. The prospect of watching Atletico Madrid’s tie at home to the Portuguese champions only added to the sense of expectation. Complications over the fixture list inspired UEFA to ignore their own policy of avoiding having two fixtures played in the same competition in the same Togel Hongkong city on consecutive nights. That meant that Liverpool’s match against Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu would come just twenty-four hours after FC Porto’s match against Atletico Madrid in the Vicente Calderon Stadium. Pockets of Panathinaikos supporters were also in the city for the first fixture, taking a detour before their match at Villarreal on Wednesday.

 

Having already been to watch Atletico this season, only a handful of Liverpool supporters opted to attend the Porto match on Tuesday night. I decided I would try to gain entry in the familiar away section. It was not the first time I had been ‘away with FC Porto’. As a nineteen-year-old I spent a winter month inter-railing across Spain, Portugal and Morocco, and on an impromptu visit to FC Porto’s ground I noticed a queue forming. Intrigued and hopeful as to why, I joined it, and when I made it to the front, repeated the same simple line uttered by those ahead of me, passed over the same fee and was handed the same thing – a match ticket. The following night I was bouncing around the away end of Lisbon’s famous old Stadium of Light watching Benfica V FC Porto. It was my first exposure to European football, and after that experience I had the bug.

 

The Portuguese were well represented off the pitch as well as on it, with a passionate away support, clearly motivated in part by the relatively localised rivalry, cheering on an impressive Porto team. Although the home side took an early lead through Maxi Rodriguez, they failed to control an inventive Porto team. Diego Forlan restored the home side’s advantage, after Lisandro twice drew the two-time European champions level. The 2-2 final score has set up an intriguing second leg at the Estadio do Dragao in a fortnight’s time, with the scenario at the halfway mark surely favouring FC Porto.

 

The following night, Liverpool entered the famous Bernabeu supposedly a club in disarray. The prospect of playing a Madrid team who had won the last nine matches in all competitions was supposed to frighten the men from Merseyside, who had won just two from their previous nine. A team of talented and experienced players playing in front of 85,000 ‘Real’ fans were supposed to add to the complexity of the task facing Liverpool. Furthermore, reports that Liverpool’s Madrid-born manager was about to resign dominated the press leading up to the match, with some suggesting that leading bookmakers had suspended betting on Rafael Benitez parting company with the club. As our challengers often discover to their cost however, diversity is not a state that crushes Liverpool’s resolve, but strengthens it. A wry smile spread across my face as I read the reports, knowing that the situation would surely be used in our favour. I had seen Liverpool win at Inter Milan last season and at Barcelona the season before, when others had conspired to spoil our chances of success.

 

Liverpool’s stuttering league form may have slowed the momentum of their push for the league title this season, but one defeat in thirty-two Premier League and Champions league fixtures this season pointed to an inevitable outcome in the Bernebeu. The team were quietly confident. The fans were equally confident, but were far from quiet. The famous ground rocked to the famous sounds of Liverpool for nearly three hours, as Benitez’s resolute team refused to concede any real clear chances to the home side. Yossi Benayoun scored the game’s only goal eight minutes from time, although the collective performance warranted at least a second Liverpool goal. Nevertheless the game and its result provided a timely reminder that Liverpool are the force to be reckoned with this season, and that in European competition, Rafael Benitez is simply the best in business. Rome anyone?

Gamba and Reysol book Qq Online season-ending trip to Kokuritsu

 

 

The long Japanese season comes to an end on New Year’s Day, with an exhausted Gamba Osaka set to take on Kashiwa Reysol in the Emperor’s Cup final.

 

Gamba booked their place with an extra-time semi-final win over Yokohama F. Marinos at the National Stadium in Tokyo, with young striker Masato Yamazaki continuing his recent goal-scoring exploits as he found the net after a marathon 116 minutes.

 

Kashiwa Reysol, meanwhile, came from behind to Qq Online beat FC Tokyo 2-1 at Ecopa Stadium in Fukuroi in the other semi-final, as the Sun Kings booked an emotional send-off for coach Nobuhiro Ishizaki.

 

Earlier this month Reysol officials announced that Ishizaki would not be in charge for the 2009 campaign, but despite that disappointment the veteran tactician has managed to guide his side into their first ever Emperor’s Cup final.

 

Tatsuya Suzuki opened the scoring for FC Tokyo – ironically he is on loan from Kashiwa Reysol – but substitutes Franca and Tadanari Ri turned the game on its head as they scored second half goals to send Kashiwa through to the final.

 

Kashiwa may be renowned as one of the scrappiest outfits in Japanese football, but a hopelessly inappropriate pre-match headline on the Reysol website highlights that J. League clubs have a long way to go to match their more media savvy European counterparts.

 

The offending Kashiwa Reysol headline

 

It was the S-Pulse UK Ultras site that brought the offending headline to the attention of the blogosphere, and Reysol officials will hope there is no backlash for their “Final Jihad” headline – on or off the pitch.

 

Manchester United crowned World champions

 

Manchester United have won the 2008 FIFA Club World Cup, beating LDU Quito 1-0 in front of 68,682 fans at Yokohama International Stadium.

 

Wayne Rooney scored the only goal of the game in the 73rd minute and he was later awarded the Golden Ball award for being named the Player Of The Tournament.

 

United deserved their win having turned in a dominant performance against the Ecuadorian underdogs, although the reigning European champions were forced to work hard after defender Nemanja Vidic saw red for an elbow to the face of LDU striker Claudio Bieler just four minutes into the second half.

 

Before that United had enjoyed the best of the action, with the outstanding Wayne Rooney forcing LDU’s veteran keeper Jose Francisco Cevallos into an early save with a stinging volley.

 

Rooney missed an even better chance just before the break when clean through on goal, as his lob-on-the-run landed on top of the net rather than in it.

 

It wasn’t until after United had been reduced to ten men that LDU began to pose a threat, with tricky midfielder Alejandro Manjos driving his team forward.

 

He saw one long-range effort pushed away by Edwin van der Sar in the 65th minute, with the Dutch goalkeeper proving that he has lost none of his dexterity despite his advancing years.

 

With seventeen minutes remaining United finally broke the deadlock, as for once Cristiano Ronaldo eschewed the showboating antics in favour of playing an easy ball, and Wayne Rooney made no mistake as he stroked an accurate finish from Ronaldo’s pass into the bottom corner.

 

A frustrated Alejandro Manjos was then denied again from long-range, as Edwin van der Sar somehow managed to push his right-foot thunderbolt over the crossbar.

 

With that Manchester United saw victory within their grasp, as the English giants capped a memorable year by adding the world crown to the English and European titles they won last season.

 

United’s victory was a triumph for coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who brushed aside suggestions from a dismissive British media as he added a world title to his impressive swag of trophies – which also includes the Intercontinental Cup won by United in Tokyo back in 1999.

 

 

 

 

dedicated server hosting

What is shared hosting?

 

You can host your website on one server, or virtual hosting. Software applications are available on the server that allow you to manage and access your website easily.

A shared hosting environment is similar to sharing a highway with other vehicles. The shared server can be shared by hundreds or thousands of users, which allows them to share the cost. This makes shared hosting one of the most popular and affordable web hosting options. Because it is so simple to set up, shared hosting is popular with startups and bloggers.

What is the cost of shared hosting?

Shared hosting costs vary depending on what level of service the web host offers. You can expect to pay between $1 and $20 per month for shared server space.

What is shared hosting?

The shared server is similar to a dedicated server hosting computer in that it has hard drive space, a CPU and RAM. These resources can be shared with other users who are hosted on the server. This allows you to secure store all files, data, or information that make up your website.

Anyone can request access to your website via their computer. The server will send the website’s stored data to the user. Because each website generates different amounts and times of traffic, shared hosting allows you to take advantage of the server’s best utility.

Sharing a server can have a negative impact

Utilizing a shared server is similar to sharing a highway. Just like how you pay a monthly fee for shared hosting, highway maintenance costs money. Users pay a small monthly fee to use shared hosting, but many people contribute to the cost.

A shared hosting package is an excellent choice if you expect low-to-moderate website traffic. It’s both affordable and convenient. Your website may experience some slowdown, just like a lot of cars can congeal a highway. If the computing resources shared with others are directed at a website experiencing a high volume of traffic, it can also cause congestion.

Eliteservermanagement.com, a reputable web hosting company, can usually support most websites with minimal downtime. You can upgrade to a higher-tier plan if your site receives more traffic.

Sharing hosting: Characteristics

All shared hosting companies offer different experiences. Below are some factors that can vary between hosting companies.

These will give you an idea on how to select a reliable provider.

Uptime: This is the time a web host has been running continuously for. High uptimes are a sign of high reliability and quality shared hosting providers. Eliteservermanagement.com guarantees 99.9% uptime for all hosting plans

Traffic: Shared hosting is not an option if you anticipate high traffic. Most web hosting companies have policies to prevent “bad neighbour effects,” which are when highly trafficked websites take over all of the shared server resources. To find a web hosting company that will support your website’s traffic, make sure you read the policies.

Ressources: While shared hosting services can host many users, processing power and memory are still limited. Web hosts may limit the content you can place on your website to allow more people to use one server. To ensure that your website conforms to their acceptable use policy, make sure you read it.

Understanding shared hosting plans

Many web hosting companies offer tiered hosting plans. This allows you to only pay what you and your site need. These plans offer important features as well as some unfamiliar jargon.

Websites: Instead of buying two separate plans, you can select a plan that allows multiple websites to be hosted on one shared server. This simplifies managing all of your sites.

Disk space: This refers to the total amount of space on a hard drive that is available to users. Shared hosting plans usually provide more space than necessary for personal projects or small businesses. Websites with large files or audio files can cause problems. Eliteservermanagement.com guarantees unlimited disk space so that you don’t have to worry about exceeding a limit.

Bandwidth: The amount of traffic your website can handle each month. A shared server can slow down the speed of your website’s operation, causing you to lose bandwidth. The speed difference between shared servers and dedicated servers is usually negligible. Eliteservermanagement.com is one of the best web hosting companies. Your bandwidth can be scaled to accommodate more traffic.

FTP users: FTP is an acronym for file transfer protocol. An FTP user has access to a domain. One FTP user will suffice for a personal blog. Multiple FTP users can be beneficial for businesses with multiple coordinating staff members.

MySQL databases: MySQL databases are a data management system that organizes data. You will need multiple MySQL databases if you want to host different sites on the same shared account.

Subdomains: What are subdomains and how can they affect your online presence? Subdomains are subdomains within your domain that can be used to organize your website’s content. You could, for example, use a subdomain in order to distinguish a mobile version from the full site.

Email addresses: A shared hosting plan might also include professional email addresses, which can enhance the image of your company.

Support: If you have any questions or run into issues with hosting your domain, a company that offers web hosting will be able to help.

Pros of shared hosting

This article outlines the benefits of shared hosting.

Cost-effective: Customers are kept at a low cost by multiple users contributing to the server’s costs.

Flexible: Shared plans can be customized to meet the needs of your website. You can upgrade to a plan if you need more website space, cloud storage or FTP users.

Secure: While space and resources may be shared on a server’s server, your information remains private. Your website’s data is not accessible to any other websites that use your shared server. Some web hosting companies offer additional security features to protect your website from cyber security threats.

It’s simple and straightforward to set up your website on a shared hosting server. The shared hosting experience is designed to be accessible to those with less technical skills so that your website can run efficiently and without any technical knowledge.

Easy maintenance: Your web host provider will maintain your shared server so that you can focus on building your platform and not fixing bugs or installing new software. You can leave that task to professional technical assistants.

Cons of Shared Hosting

Although shared hosting is convenient and cheap, there are some tradeoffs. These circumstances are possible, but shared hosting is attractive because it is painless.

Potential slowdowns It is possible for your website to experience a spike of activity. Changes in speed are often barely noticeable.

Potential dangers: Shared servers can host multiple websites. This could lead to potential compromises. This can be avoided by installing security features such as SSL certificates on reliable server hosts.

You can only customize the shared server backend: This is to protect your security. This means you can only use the programs provided by your hosting company. Shared hosting is not recommended for you if you have any special requirements such as the ability to run an alternate operating system. This is a great benefit for those who are less tech-savvy. It means that all the tools you require are available in an easy-to-understand interface and that your server host takes care of server maintenance.

Are you a good candidate for shared hosting?

The best person or company to use shared hosting is:

Limited knowledge in web hosting

You want to cut costs

Website management that is easy and profitable

A simple website is required for personal or small business purposes

Are you interested in learning web design, programming, or WordPress?

It can be both thrilling and overwhelming to build a website. It is crucial to choose the right web hosting platform in order to build a strong foundation for website development. If you don’t plan to go viral with major marketing campaigns, shared hosting is likely to meet your website’s requirements.

Once your website is live, you can begin to see where your website should grow in terms of bandwidth and data storage. A shared hosting plan gives you the freedom to scale up and down without any hiccups.

Shared hosting vs VPS hosting vs dedicated hosting

You might consider upgrading your hosting package if your website is currently on a shared server and uses more resources than your host allows. VPS web hosting is the next level up for websites that outgrow shared hosting.

VPS Hosting

VPS hosting is different from other web hosting plans. VPS hosting is a virtual private server and gives you more resources. VPS hosting is a way to limit the number websites that can be hosted on one server. It also provides reserved space on the server for your website’s bandwidth and disk space.

If another website experiences spikes in activity, virtual private servers won’t affect your website. VPS hosting users have more options. VPS hosting is ideal for websites that are too large for shared hosting but too small for dedicated servers.

Hosting dedicated

You can upgrade to dedicated hosting if your website needs more resources than VPS hosting. A dedicated hosting server hosts your website only. It is entirely dedicated to your website. Your website will benefit from greater privacy, security, storage space, speed, and bandwidth.

However, dedicated hosting comes with a downside. It is expensive and requires IT skills to manage. If you are looking for unshared resources and maximum website performance as well as greater control over programs and security, dedicated hosting may be the best option.

What hosting plan is best for you small business?

Shared hosting is a great option for most people who are new to website hosting. It is affordable for those still trying to figure out the size of their website and it is easy for anyone, no matter their technical knowledge.

If your website needs more processing power, storage space or customization, VPS and dedicated hosting may be an option. They come at a higher price, however. You can avoid unnecessary expenses by learning about the features and requirements of each web hosting plan.

 

 

 

 

Pkv

It’s a Pkv war for four, send in the Gunners

 

 

A psychic once predicted that I’d marry a small, blonde, beautiful woman, which proved to be wrong, wrong, wrong and the jury’s out. As a result of that experience, I’m a confirmed eyebrow raiser whenever the subject of the paranormal is raised, but even i can appreciate the sense of déjà vu emanating from the greatest competition in World football, the Premiership.

 

Cast your minds back a year; Chelsea had the title in Pkv the bag, the 2nd and 3rd finishing positions were pretty much sewn up, and the battle for the final Champions League spot was fought by a team flying high in the Champions League and their local rivals. Unfortunately for Tottenham, the similarity ends there. The Gunners have all the momentum in ‘The War for four’, and should be backed at 4/7 to finish above their North London rivals; Spurs fans and the viewers of ‘most haunted’ will be obliged at 5/4.

 

Arsenal have been linked with a summer move for David Beckham, which is surprising as Becks couldn’t lace Ljungberg’s boots. He’s a far better player than Freddie, he just struggles with laces. Ljungberg is doubtful for the Charlton match, an Arsenal victory is not. The Gunners are nap bet material at 4/11.

 

Last season he was a right lemon, now the Arsenal goalkeeper is being rightly lauded by all and sundry. The Addicks have drew a blank in three of their last four games; you can foresee an Arsenal clean sheet, a pleasing 4/5 shot.

 

Mick McCarthy has taken a bit of stick for steering Sunderland towards the title of ‘Worst Premiership football team ever’, but in defence of big Mick, he managed to get this awful side promoted from the Championship last season, and with more points than Wigan and West Ham to boot, a spectacular accomplishment. Sunderland are losing at the Reebok this week, 4/11 is on the table for Bolton.

 

It’s been reported that Tottenham have made a £7 million bid for Ruud Van Nistelrooy, although Martin Jol’s unusual policy of leaving his best striker on the bench could well be a stumbling block. Steve Bruce has complained that relegation worries are affecting his sleep, he’ll kip like a hedgehog in winter when Birmingham take all three points at home to Spurs. It’s 9/4 that Brucey gets his eight hours on Saturday night.

 

West Brom host an in form Manchester United, their flirtation with the drop is about to move into Paris Hilton territory. Man U were sublime last weekend against Newcastle, a convincing win is on the cards at the Hawthorns; the 1/2 on offer should appeal.

 

The British press should hold it’s collective head in shame. Wayne Rooney floated the ball over the Newcastle keeper’s head to score a wonder goal last week, yet the headline, ‘Rooney, chips a Given’ was nowhere to be seen. The Roonatic was unlucky not to get a hat-trick then, one shot nearly took Gary Neville’s head off; let’s hope his luck improves against West Brom. It’s 20/1 for the big lad to net three times.

Mourinho calls it a day at Chelsea for Poker online

 

 

Around an hour after midnight in England on Thursday, the news was broken that Jose Mourinho had left Chelsea after three years at the helm.

 

The Portuguese coach, who won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and League Cup at Stamford Bridge, but failed to get beyond the Champions League semi-final, quit the club “by mutual consent” following the Blues’ disappointing 1-1 home draw with Rosenborg in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

 

Relations between Mourinho and billionaire club owner Roman Abramovich had been tense for some time, and following the $60million signing of Andriy Shevchenko last season, allegedly arranged by Abramovich above Mourinho’s head, rumors were fuelled that the former Porto and Benfica coach was on his way.

 

Mourinho in England was as opinionated and forthright as he had been in Portugal, but always stopped short of slamming his employer, despite everyone knowing he considered Abramovich his nemesis.

 

Their final parting, following a meeting to discuss Chelsea’s lame tie with the Norwegian minnows, therefore comes as no surprise, but is still a shock given that arguably the best coach in England has bagged the annual sack race for 2007/08.

 

Mourinho will surface again at a big or ambitious club before long, as talent of his calibre is too good to sink without trace. But the big issue emanating from today’s news, in a week when another anonymous Russian billionaire muscled his way into English football, is how the new breed of English club directors are seeking to impose their impossible dreams on the clubs they have splurged their wealth onto.

 

Managers and directors/owners have rarely seen eye to eye, but in this day and age the distance has widened intensely. When a coach as good as Mourinho is dispensed with, the fingers point inexorably towards a boardroom bust-up between one man oozing with football experience and another loaded with currency but with his head in the clouds when it come to the nitty-gritty of the sport.

 

A leader who wins five trophies in three years in Poker Online, including two domestic titles, half a century after the club’s previous league triumph, and receives the acclaim of the football world for his achievements, is surely someone worth keeping.

 

But that is not taking into account a flush Russian with a passion for global fame and success but with questionable sense about the sport he has bought into, a game in which sustained perfection is as good as impossible for any team to achieve.

 

David Shin: Young Korean Woking And Winging His Way To Success

 

Alan Shearer spent over a decade at the top of the English Premier League goalscoring charts famously fuelled by a diet of chicken and baked beans. David Shin is just starting out much further down the league ladder but the 18 year-old shares something in common with the ex-England captain and the average UK citizen, who, according to the BBC eat more than 15 pounds of beans each year. “I like beans so much,” laughed Shin down the ‘phone.

 

If the tinned food helps the Seoul-born Shin have half the success that Shearer had, he, and his family, based in London’s ‘Koreatown’ of New Malden will be delighted.

 

Inevitably known as ‘Shinny’ by his Woking FC team-mates, the player is starting to show his homeland that English football isn’t just about Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool. The lower leagues in England contain dozens of historic football clubs and the teenager is currently playing for Woking FC in what is commonly known as ‘The Conference’ –England’s ‘fifth division’.

 

August 27 saw the winger, who arrived in England five years ago and spent two years as a trainee with Fulham before joining Woking’s youth academy, make his first-team debut. Coming on as a second-half substitute with his team 2-0 down at Salisbury, Shin couldn’t help his team save the game but at least contributed to a more respectable 2-1 scoreline.

 

“I was so pleased that I came on second half which was my debut,” Shin said. “I helped the team to win in the second half but we lost 2-1 overall. I actually believed that i could change the game and I think I helped to do so but of course, I could have played better.”

 

Woking may be down in the nether regions of the English league pyramid but over 2,000 spectators witnessed the club’s new star make his debut in the historic cathedral city.

 

“The atmosphere was great,” said Shin. “Salisbury’s fans were great and there were a few of our fans there who cheered when I came on. At half time, the coach said to me: ‘You are playing on the left side, do your best’, that was it really.”

 

As one of the finest full-backs in English football in the seventies, Woking coach Frank Gray knows a thing or two about what makes a good winger and the former Leeds United star, who played in the 1975 European Cup final, likes the look of his Korean prospect.

 

“He has good ability, likes to take people on and likes to get forward,” Gray told me in a telephone interview and added, “Technically he is very good. He has excellent energy and fitness levels. We are very happy with him and he has a good future if he keeps working hard.”

 

“We are not looking for promotion at the moment, this is a transitional period for the club and we have lots of young players like David coming through so we need to be patient. We are looking to build something for the future but it will take a little time.”

 

Time is something that Shin has and just as importantly, he possesses a willingness to learn and a desire to improve. All are necessary if he is to climb the ladder to the Premier League pinnacle that is his stated target.

 

“I am looking to continue progressing and work harder and the chance to play at higher levels. My aim is to play in the Premiership and I have to work harder,” the teenager acknowledged.

 

Playing at the conference level is no picnic; there are thousands of talented young players who never reach that standard. But Shin wants to go further still and having already met his hero off the pitch, there is a chance that he could meet Lee Young-pyo on it.

 

“I met Lee Young-pyo twice and he talked to me and gave me advice,” said Shin of the Tottenham star. Despite the presence of Lee in London, Shin, like masses of his compatriots, supports a certain team from the north of England –Manchester United. Park Ji-sung often plays on the wings for the English champions but Shin believes he has more in common with one of Argentina’s finest players.

 

“People say I am similar to Lionel Messi,” he said. “I have quick feet and am fast. I use both feet.”

 

Keep both eyes open for David Shin.

Sad End For Korea But Much To Be Togel Online Positive About

 

 

 

 

For almost all teams, international tournaments end in sadness and thoughts of what-might-have-been. That is the case with South Korea in regard to the Under-20 World Cup in Egypt but as time passes, the competition will be remembered fondly in the Land of the Morning Calm.

 

The run to the quarter-finals ended on Friday evening with a 3-2 defeat against Ghana at the Mubarak Stadium in Suez. It was an exciting match though the teenage Taeguk Warriors could never quite recover from a poor start.

 

Dominic Adiyiah gave the Black Satellites the lead Togel Online after just eight minutes, scoring from close range from a low cross from the right. The second goal came 20 minutes later in a similar fashion except it was Ransford Osei who got the finishing touch.

 

Minutes later, Park Hee-sung headed a goal back for the Koreans who then spent much of the remaining time probing the Ghanaian defense. Another lapse in concentration cost the Asians as Adiyiah scored his second and his team’s third twelve minutes from the end.

 

Just two minutes after that however, substitute Kim Dong-sub found the back of the net with a header to send the red-clad fans in the stadium into a frenzy and set up an exciting finale. It never quite happened and the Africans held out.

 

Thus ended two weeks of football that started badly but steadily improved. A 2-0 defeat at the hands of Cameroon suggested a short stay in North Africa but then coach Hong Myong-bo, a legend of Korean football, and his players dug in for a 1-1 draw against Germany. Then came a comprehensive 3-0 win over the United States which gave them a ticket to the knockout stage.

 

People at home started to get really excited when the youngsters put Paraguay to the sword with another 3-0 win. Suddenly, the team seemed to have the ingredient that is necessary in all tournaments – momentum. It was punctured by slack defending in the first 30 minutes against Ghana.

 

As the two defeats came against African teams there are suggestions that the less powerful Koreans struggle with opponents from that continent, adding a little extra spice to the senior team’s friendly match against Senegal in Seoul on Wednesday.

 

“We certainly found African opposition difficult to deal with, but the team will learn from the experience, that’s for sure,” said coach Hong after the match. “We’re a quick team, both in possession and in terms of pace, but African teams combine that sharpness with power, which we found extremely difficult to cope with.”

 

The coach of Ghana put Korea’s defeat down, not to a lack of power, but to a lack of precision in the danger area.

 

It was a great match and it must have been nice to watch for everyone. For us though it was a very difficult match,” said Sellas Tetteh. “I have to pay tribute to South Korea; they gave us a very tough match. They pass the ball well and they have tremendous energy. If they’d have been a bit more clinical, it would have been even more difficult for us.”

 

Turning possession into goals has long been a problem for Koreans, and Asian, teams though the recent 2010 World Cup qualification campaign suggested that a corner may be being turned in this respect.

 

Coach Hong, a quiet but charismatic man, was a defender who played in four World Cups, made 125 appearances for the national team and was the captain during the 2002 tournament. The 40 year-old has done enough to hint at a bright coaching career to come.

 

He will do well though not to take too much notice of an excited Korean media. The signs are that he will keep his feet on the ground and he was happy to deflect the praise that came his way onto his players.

 

“They’ve been absolutely magnificent and I am very proud of them,” said Hong of his young charges.

 

“They gave their all. They showed that have a very strong mentality as well as a great aptitude to learn whatever has been asked of them. They’re also a team in every true sense of the word. We don’t have any superstars or big egos. We work together – and I hope they continue to do this for many years to come. They have a lot of potential.”
