Not meaning to be pedantic, but you actually get 31 days to complete the course :)  I've just gone through the first section myself and can highly recommend this course. The instructor and content is excellent. Very informative.

I'm glad to see Liquidweb is a new topic here. They have been my web host of choice since about 2008 or 9 and I have twenty some posts here on why I like LW https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28434976/recommend-a-hosting-provider.html#a40069498

They completely helped me from migration from a previous host and through several critical server upgrades VPS -> dedicated windows server 2003->2008->2012.  Whenever I have an issue, the person that takes the ticket is friendly and very knowledgeable. Other hosting services I have used, a help call or ticket starts at a low level and has to get escalated. At LW, 99% of the time, the person that you initially contact is the person that fixes the issue be it by submitted ticket or a panicky phone call.

One of the add on services I use for my dedicated server is continuous back up on my SQL Server drive. I have client billing systems on this server and one time did encounter a crash. Because of the continuous back up, no data was lost and everything was restored in quick manner.

Is it just me or is NoSQL Overapplied? It seems like in an effort to be as trendy as possible people shoehorn obviously relational problems into non relational schema. If you have to start throwing foreign keys on your objects I think you need to rethink your solution. Sarah Mei makes a good point about this in her article:

It was definitely over applied initially. Though, I think it's gotten better over the years. Part of it, too, is that a lot of the relational databases started incorporating NoSQL-like features (i.e. PostgreSQL and their JSON capabilities).
