Posts vs. Pages in WordPress

In WordPress, posts are on pages, but pages aren’t necessarily posts only. Huh?

Pages are like posts, but they aren’t included in the chronology of the rest of your blog posts.

What that means, is that pages can be static (never change) and aren’t dated or time-stamped like your blog posts.

Pages are great for “About Me” pages or contact forms. You can add or delete pages by clicking on Pages in the left navigation. This opens the Edit Pages pane.

Get hacked? Keep in mind some simple rules for your website

What does it mean to get hacked?
Protect your website

Use a secure password. This means something better than just taking  your pet’s name. We have information in Keeping Your Hosting/FTP Password Secure.
Have your site scanned regularly. A lot of companies offer tools that will go through your site looking for malicious/suspicious-looking code or activity.
Update your website’s software. If you use something like WordPress®, keeping your software up-to-date is the difference between your site running smoothly and having a site infested with malware
By being aware of the threat of hackers and taking a few precautions, you can stop your site from harming visitors and other sites around the Internet.

    • Business license
    • Tax certificate
    • Doing Business As documentation
    • Fictitious Name documentation

Do you care about Page Load Speed for your website?

In an August 2013 video, Cutts explains that page load speed is a ranking factor (Matt Cutts is the head of Google’s Webspam team).

It’s quite possible that your website is slow because of one of the five issues below. Check them out, and see how they relate to your site.

  1. Page Size — The bigger your page, the longer it takes to download, especially over slower connections.
  2. Time to First Byte — An increased time to 1st byte means there are too many SQL queries or non optimized SQL queries. This can also include server-side calls to third-party API. If you’re running WordPress, get the WordPress Plugin P3 Profiler to discover what plugins are running what queries and how long each one takes.
  3. Total Objects and Third-Party Objects — Too many objects on your page will require visitors’ browsers to perform the request and receive pattern too many times and slow down your page.
  4. Cached Objects — You want browsers caching your site. You need to instruct the Web server to enable expires headers on your static objects.
  5. Text Compression — If you don’t have text compression turned on, your page is going to be slow. We turn this on by default on our Web Hosting plans, so your if your page is suffering from this, it’s either because of third-party objects, or it somehow got disabled on your hosting account.

You can use Google PageSpeed Insights tool to check your website to see if your web pages fast on all devices or not?

  • Documents supporting the applicant’s due registration under its national, state or federal laws.
  • Written statements describing the objectives and reasons for registering the related domain name.

The statements may be written in English or Chinese. There is no restriction on the number of pages for the statement. Documents can be submitted to cctldhelp@secureserver.net.

Domain names can be up to 63 characters, with a minimum of three characters, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning or end of the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.

Be Aware of Top 3 Online Threats

1. Injection.

It’s not uncommon for web applications to have injection flaws, especially SQL injection flaws. A hacker who finds one will send malicious data as part of a command or query. The attacker’s message tricks the app into changing data or executing a command it was not designed to obey.

keeping you and your customers safe from hackers and other online threats.
keeping you and your customers safe from hackers and other online threats.

Malicious users can exploit injection flaws if a site isn’t configured to validate input. Attackers might attempt to trick websites into providing unauthorized data, prevent specific site functions, or locate other vulnerabilities to exploit. SQL injection attacks are the most common, which execute SQL queries entered in a text form.

2. Cross-site Scripting.

Cross-site Scripting flaws occur whenever an application sends user-supplied data to a web browser without validating it first. Hackers use these flaws to hijack users away from the site or deface it, thereby costing the site owner in lost business.

3. Insecure Direct Object References.

Applications that lack checks to verify a user is authorized to view particular content can be manipulated to access private data.

Other threats

  • Broken Authentication Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF).
  • Security Misconfiguration.
  • Insecure Cryptographic Storage.
  • Insecure Cryptographic Storage.
  • Insufficient Transport Layer Protection.
  • Invalidated Redirects & Forwards.

About Registry, Registrar and Registrant

There are three different roles that participate in the domain name registration process: The registry, registrar, and registrant. The following information breaks down each role and how they work with one another:

 

registrar-registration

Registry: A domain name registry is an organization that manages top-level domain names. They create domain name extensions, set the rules for that domain name, and work with registrars to sell domain names to the public. For example, ICANN manages the registration of .com domain names and their domain name system (DNS). To learn more about DNS, see What is DNS?

Registrar: The registrar is an accredited organization, like LuckyRegister – Cheap Domain Registration, Domain Hosting Services -, that sells domain names to the public. Some have the ability to sell top-level domain names (TLDs) like .com, .net, and .org or country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs) such as .us, .ca, and .eu.

Registrant: A registrant is the person or company who registers a domain name. Registrants can manage their domain name’s settings through their registrar. When changes are made to the domain, their registrar will send the information to the registry to be updated and saved in the registry’s database. When you register a domain name, you become a registrant!
