Project management is an essential aspect of every business, and it plays a vital role in the success of projects. Gone are the days where running company projects only entailed one or two excel spreadsheets and an experienced team.

One of the benefits of a project management program is its ability to centralize all aspects of a program, which streamlines the project.

By now everyone has heard that EIG took over Bluehost. But what about the changes this has resulted in? Site owners have experienced issues with their sites going down, no available support and losing their data. Other site owners have been satisfied with the new service. EIG is the parent company of numerous hosting companies including Bluehost, Host Gator and ASO. Most of their issues are believed to be growing pains.
The Shared Servers
The most common issue with Bluehost is the sites of their users go down as often as thirty minutes per day. Bluehost is often enable to migrate these users to an alternate server. If too large a portion of the shared server’s resources are used the site can be temporarily blocked. This is because their shared servers are packed with sites. On occasion entire sites have been lost. There are numerous complaints regarding the lack of or ineffectiveness of support management. The most common complaint is their knowledge does not surpass general tech support. There have also been instances where sites have referred back to where they were years before. The best piece of advice is for all site owners to consistently back up their sites.
The Affiliate Program
Bluehost is inexpensive. The entry cost is just $7.99 per month. Their affiliate program has an extremely high payout with a high of $64 for each referral including the base referrals. Many of the site hosts are unfamiliar with the technical side and are not receiving the assistance they require. Any issues can be handled with developer communities familiar with these situations. This being said there are still numerous clients not experiencing any issues.
One of the issues is many site owners have a contract. This means if they choose to leave Bluehost and break their contracts the fees can get extremely expensive. The cost for consistent backups is approximately $10 each month and highly recommended. This often includes a secure remote backup, a test restore option and an auto restore option. There is unlimited storage space for fair usage and the backups are encrypted. Free backup tools are also available but must not be stored locally. If the site goes down and the backup is local it will be lost.
The Final Decision
Most professionals do not believe Bluehost is for serious bloggers. It is not considered a good solution at this time. The users must remain in control of their backups, optimization and security to remain successful. A lot of people believe this will change once EIG works out their growing pains. The reason so many users are unhappy with the service while others are not having any issues has not yet been determined. The bottom line is the service is currently considered risky.

In recent years as the economy has strengthened, there has been a massive increase in the number of IT workers needed all over the U.S., and all over the world.
That means, not only are there more jobs, but salaries for IT workers have increased as well.
If you are thinking of going into IT, which are the highest paying IT jobs (more on ICT Banen), and which are at the top of the salary ladder?
Chief Information Officer — While this is not a job you can just walk into if you have no IT experience, it is one of the jobs you can definitely work towards, as being a Chief Information Officer pays more than many other IT jobs.
The average pay for a job like this is around $200,000, with some CFOs being paid as much as $300,000.
Chief Technology Officer — Again, another job title that means the person doing the job is in one of the highest paying IT jobs in America.
Salaries for a CTO will usually begin at a low of $150,000 and go up to $250,000 and higher, depending on the type of experience and where they received it.
Chief Security Officer — If you think most of the highest paying IT jobs involve the title of Chief, you could be correct.
Take a Chief Security Officer, a person who manages an entire department of IT workers and is ultimately responsible for data breaches and cyberattacks being found and stopped.
What is the average salary for someone doing this job? Just like the CTO, starting salary kicks in at about $150,000, and can go as high as $248,000 for someone with a lot of experience.
Director of Technology — While a typical Director of Technology makes less money than the people above, he or she will still make a nice amount.
Salaries have risen for this position in the last few years due to demand, so starting income is approximately $130,000. Some Directors of Technology can earn just a few thousand below $200,000. Particularly if they work for a large company, have extensive experience or are very highly qualified.
App Developer — As mobile apps have exploded in the IT market, the highest paying IT jobs now include people who work only on mobile apps.
An app developer, especially one at management level, may see a salary in the $150,000 to $175,000 range, someone who is extremely good at their job could move over the $200,000 mark.
IT is not an easy field — Of course, when some people see these salaries, they think that is a job they would like to do.
Be aware, however, to get to these high salaries not only requires years of IT training, it also means years of actual work before one of these jobs would be open to you.
When you also consider you will spend far more hours at work than in many other jobs in the IT field, the amount you would be paid per hour is sometimes not much more than the IT job you already have.
