5 Important Rules in Website Design

When it comes to your website, extra attention should be paid to every minute detail to make sure it performs optimally to serve its purpose. Here are seven important rules of thumb to observe to make sure your website performs well.

 1) Do not use splash pages

 Splash pages are the first pages you see when you arrive at a website. They normally have a very beautiful image with words like “welcome” or “click here to enter”. In fact, they are just that — pretty vases with no real purpose. Do not let your visitors have a reason to click on the “back” button! Give them the value of your site up front without the splash page.

 2) Do not use excessive banner advertisements

 Even the least net savvy people have trained themselves to ignore banner advertisements so you will be wasting valuable website real estate. Instead, provide more valueable content and weave relevant affiliate links into your content, and let your visitors feel that they want to buy instead of being pushed to buy.

 3) Have a simple and clear navigation

 You have to provide a simple and very straightforward navigation menu so that even a young child will know how to use it. Stay away from complicated Flash based menus or multi-tiered dropdown menus. If your visitors don’t know how to navigate, they will leave your site.

 4) Have a clear indication of where the user is

 When visitors are deeply engrossed in browsing your site, you will want to make sure they know which part of the site they are in at that moment. That way, they will be able to browse relevant information or navigate to any section of the site easily. Don’t confuse your visitors because confusion means “abandon ship”!

 5) Avoid using audio on your site

 If your visitor is going to stay a long time at your site, reading your content, you will want to make sure they’re not annoyed by some audio looping on and on on your website. If you insist on adding audio, make sure they have some control over it — volume or muting controls would work fine.

Hosting Transfer, Transfer Hosting To LuckyRegister

Setting up your Web site on our secure hosting servers

So you want to host your Web site on our secure servers, but you want to avoid costly mistakes and excessive site downtime. The process of moving your Web site from one hosting provider to another can seem like a daunting task. This guide leads you through the process of transferring your account to our secure servers while minimizing unfavorable downtime.

Essentially, when you host your Web site and its content, you are storing the files and data on a remote computer. The access and management tools pro-vided make it easy for you to move and maintain your files and data. You can successfully transfer your Web site hosting from your existing hosting pro-vider to our secure hosting with minimal interruptions to your site activity.

To help the process run smoothly, you should know who your current host-ing provider is and the company where your domain name is currently regis-tered. In many cases, this is not the same company. To begin the process of transferring your hosting account, purchase a hosting plan that suits your needs and then follow the steps outlined in this guide.

SETTING UP YOUR HOSTING ACCOUNT

Your account is not automatically set up when you purchase a hosting plan. You must set up the new account in the Hosting Manager, where you configure host-ing account functionality.

To Set up Your Hosting Account

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. Under the Hosting & Email section, select Hosting Account List.

3. Next to the hosting account you want to set up, click Setup Account.

4. On the Account Setup page in the Hosting Manager, type in the domain name you want to use for this hosting account.

5. If you want to use FrontPage for this account, select Install.

6. If you want Java Enabled for this account, select Setup.

*** The FrontPage and Java options will only display if you have purchased a hosting account that includes these features.

7. Create a User ID and Password for this hosting account. This is the User ID and password that you will use to connect to your hosting account using an FTP client. This is also the User ID and Password that you will use to access your free Web Statistics page.

8. Click Continue.

9. Verify your account information. If everything looks correct, click Submit.

A Congratulations message displays, letting you know that your hosting account should be ready to use in a few minutes. You will receive an email message once your hosting account is ready to use. This email message will include all of your basic account-management information.

*** If your domain is registered with us, we automatically change your name servers. You need to point your new host record to your old site until you finish this process.

CHANGING YOUR A RECORD

If your domain is registered with us, we recommend that you point your A record (host record) to your existing(old) hosting provider.This will help to avoid site downtime until you complete your data transfer.

Changing your A Record

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. From the Domains drop-down list, select My Domains.

3. In the Domain Manager, click on the domain name you want to change.

4. Expand the Total DNS Control menu.

5. Click Select Total DNS Control and MX Records.

6. Click Launch Total DNS Control Manager.

7. Select Edit for the A record, and enter your IP address from your existing(old) hosting account.

*** Once you complete the transfer of your files and data to your new hosting account, you can change the records back to your new IP address

TRANSFERRING YOUR WEB SITE CONTENT

Once you have set up your new hosting account, you can begin transferring files and data. There are several popular tools that you can use for uploading files and importing databases. This section provides instructions for using some of the most popular tools and links to more information.

Create backup files of your current Web site pages! Ensure that the backup folder contains your current “live” pages, including all files and images. Canceling your existing host-ing account without backing up your Web pages could result in a loss of your entire Web site.

Uploading Your Files

To upload files to your Web site, you need an FTP client. FTP, or File Transfer Pro-tocol, lets you connect to a host computer with your new hosting account. The Hosting Manager has a Web-based FTP client that you can use to upload your files.

If you need to transfer a lot of large files, we recommend that you use Windows XP Network Places or a standard FTP client such as FileZilla.

For instructions on uploading files with Windows XP Network Places, see Using Windows XP to Upload Your Site.

For instructions on uploading files with FileZilla, see Using FileZilla to Upload Your Site.

Using the Hosting Manager FTP Client to Upload Your Files

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. Under the Hosting & Email section, select Hosting Account List.

3. Next to the hosting account you want to modify, click Open.

4. Under the Content section of the Hosting Manager, click the FTP Client icon.

5. If a security certificate window displays, click Yes to accept the certificate and open the FTP program.

6. You can transfer files back and forth from your local system to your hosting account (remote system) using the arrows in the middle of the FTP client.

Importing Your Data

Before you can import data into your new hosting account, you must create a new SQL database in that account. Depending on the operating system on your host server, you use a SQL tool to create and manage your database.

Setting up a MySQL Database for Your Web Site Content

MySQL is a database server that you can use in conjunction with PHP and other scripting languages to create dynamic Web sites.

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. Under the Hosting & Email section, select Hosting Account List.

3. Next to the hosting account you want to modify, click Open.

4. Under the Databases section of the Hosting Manager, click the MySQL icon.

5. Click Create New Database.

6. Enter a user name and password, and click Continue.

7. Verify your MySQL database settings. If everything looks correct, click Create Database.

It may take a few minutes to create your database. Click the Refresh button in your browser to check and see if your database is ready

Importing Your Database Using MySQL

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. Under the Hosting & Email section, select Hosting Account List.

3. Next to the hosting account you want to modify, click Open.

4. Under the Databases section of the Hosting Manager, click the MySQL icon.

5. Click Open Manager next to the database you want to configure.

6. Click the Query Window(SQL) button.

7. Click the Import Files tab

8. Click Browse, select your SQL file, and then click Go. Your database information is imported.

Setting Up a SQL Server Database for Your Web Site Content

SQL Server is a relational database server from Microsoft that you can use in con-junction with Web programming languages to create dynamic Web sites.

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. Under the Hosting & Email section, select Hosting Account List.

3. Next to the hosting account you want to modify, click Open.

4. Under the Databases section of the Hosting Manager, click the SQL Server icon.

5. Click Create New Database.

6. If you want to use DSN with this database, select Create DSN.

7. Enter a user name and password, and click Continue.

8. Verify your SQL Server database settings. If everything looks correct, click Create Database.


*** It may take a few minutes to create your database. Click the Refresh button in your browser to check and see if your database is ready.

Importing Your Database Using SQL Server

Once your new database is set up, you can transfer the data from your existing database. There is a link to the SQL Server tool in the Hosting Manager.

1. Log in to your Account Manager.

2. Under the Hosting & Email section, select Hosting Account List.

3. Next to the hosting account you want to modify, click Open.

4. Under the Databases section of the Hosting Manager, click the SQL Server icon.

5. Next to the database to which you are importing, click Open Manager.

6. In the Navigation panel, click Connection.

7. In the Connection panel, click Connection.

8. Enter the User Name and Password you used when setting up the database.

9. Click Connect.

10. Expand the Tools folder on the left and click CSV import wizard.

11. From the Database drop-down menu, choose the database in which to import your data, and then click Next Step.

12. From the Table drop-down list, select the table into which the data will be imported, and then click Next Step.

13. Select the database columns into which the data will be imported, and then click Next Step.

14. Choose the CSV file to import and specify the file’s characteristics.

15. Click Submit.

TESTING YOUR TRANSFERRED FILES

After you have set up your new hosting account and transferred files, you can easily verify that your Web site looks the way you want it to before you make it live on the Internet. You can test your Web site by adding the IP address and Web site name to your Windows host file.

If you do not have your IP address, you can get it from the Hosting Manager. You need the Server IP Address displayed in the Account Summary area.

To Modify Your Windows Host File

1. Go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and open the host file in Note-pad. Note: hosts is the name of the file you need to modify, not a directory.

2. Add your IP address and Web site name below the last entry. The entry should look like this: 100.55.55.52 www.coolexample.com. Add each entry on an individual line with the IP address preceding the site name.

3. Save and close the host file.

Verifying the Transfer of Your Web Site Files

Once you have transferred your files and updated your host file, you can verify that your Web site works.

To view your Web site, open a browser window and type your domain name in the address bar.

You can only view your Web site from the computer where you added your IP address and domain name to the host file. It is not live on the Internet yet.

CHANGING YOUR DOMAIN NAME SERVERS(DNS)

4. In order to complete the transfer of your Web site hosting, you must change your domain name servers(DNS). A domain name server(DNS) is an address assigned by the computer where your Web site files are hosted. The address is associated with your domain name so that your Web site can be viewed on the Internet when someone enters your domain name. The process for setting up your name servers depends on the company where your domain is registered. Check with your domain name Registrar for specific instructions on how to change your name servers The nameservers for your hosting account depend on the day you set up your hosting. Use this list to determine your default nameservers:

After January 31, 2007

ns5.secureserver.net, ns6.secureserver.net

November 15, 2006 ‐ January 30, 2007

ns1.secureserver.net, ns2.secureserver.net

December 15, 2005 ‐ November 14, 2006

ns3.secureserver.net, ns4.secureserver.net

Before December 14, 2005

ns1.secureserver.net, ns2.secureserver.net

OR

wsc1.jomax.net, wsc2.jomax.net

These name servers will point your domain name to your new hosting account.

There may be some downtime before your Web site is avail-able on the Internet. This period is called the propagation period and can take up to 48 hours.

Once you have verified that your Web site works, you can cancel your account with your existing(previous) hosting provider.

Domain Forwarding, Masking Advices

I think that some domainers still do not understand very well How to select 301 or 302 redirect for domain forwarding and masking. So it will be more clear now with this article. 

You can forward or mask a domain name to redirect to another domain of your choosing. When specifying the information for redirecting the page, you can use either a 301 or 302 redirect.

If you are redirecting your domain to a web site A 301 redirect sends people to the site you specified in the Forward To field using a “301 Moved Permanently” HTTP response. The HTTP 301 response code tells user-agents (including search engines) that the location has permanently moved.

A 302 redirect sends people to the site you specified in the Forward To field using a “302 Found” HTTP response. The HTTP 302 response code tells user-agents (including search engines) that the location has temporarily moved.

It means that:

+ Domain forwarding or masking with 301 redirect can provide a long-term solution to point your domains to business or affiliate sites. 

+ Domain forwarding or masking with 302 redirect points your domain to a temporary page while you build your permanent web site. The specific redirects help the search engines distinguish how long your web site information will be located at its current location.

*** LuckyRegister offer free domain forwarding, domain masking for our cheap domain registration, transfer services.

If web traffic is a building and search engines as doors, Google will be the biggest door. If all of us try to enter this door, It will be very hard to enter inside the building. We may need to spend a lot of time, money… to get inside the building. There are many article, advices, tips for Google SEO but not many for Live Search, MSN… Why?  Perhap we think that “search engine means Google” but we forget that Microsoft Sites are just the second one for web traffic. If we want to improve our website traffic, Live Search SEO is something that we must do also. 

I have read over Live Search webmaster help, Google webmaster help and I think that they are very similar. Both of them put the target to bring the best results for web search users. The target is “Good for Web Users mean Good for Search Engine”. I found that Live Search more clear about how they rank a website than Google does. Live Search consider the following main points for website ranking in an area of the world 

1 – Country code top-level domain (ccTLD). For example, aw.ca specifically targets users in Canada.

2 – Host server location, particularly for .com, .net, and .org.

3 – Language of the body text on the page.

4 – Locale of pages that link to your site.

and for sure, number of links to your urls are the most important points. 

I do hope that this articel give you a fresh idea about web traffic building.

Protected Registration – Protect Your Domain Names

It happens hundreds of times every day – and it could happen to you!

Your credit card expires. You change your email address and don’t update your domain contact information. Someone close to you, or a social engineer, transfers your domain name away without your permission.

When the domain name goes, everything else goes, too!

One oversight and you could lose the domain name you worked so hard to get. That means any Web site or email services associated with it will stop working.*

Protected Registration is packed with the safeguards and security you need:

  • Exclusive! Domain Ownership Protection:

    • Ownership Protection Reports: quarterly email updates help you keep track of vital domain information.
  • Private Domain Registration shields your personal information from public view. Protects you from spam, scams, prying eyes and worse.
  • Business Domain Registration provides need-to-know information about your organization in the Whois database – including a map to your store, snapshot of your Web site, description of your business, phone number, links and more.
    • Vital information about your business or organization
    • Visible to millions who search the domain name (WhoIs) database
    • Affordable online advertising investment
    • Includes FREE 1-page Online Business Card Web site
    • Space to display up to 4 images and 4 hyperlinks –
      perfect for driving customers to specific pages of your website

NAME DOMAIN

We are sure that there are many articles with the topics about “how to register a good domain name?” or “how to select a good domain name for your website?” …These kind of articles are very interesting and useful for domainers to select and register a good domain name for their web site. This article is the sum up of “all the good advices” and some new advices through our domaining experience. We hope that this article give you some fresh ideas about how to select and register a good domain for your website.

Seven Main Points To Consider for a Domain Name:

1 – Short Domain is better

The maximum length for a domain name is 67 characters. It is better to name your domain name short, Why? It is easy to remember a short domain name than a long one. It is also easier to create a logo to match with a short domain than a long one. A short domain is also brandable, recognizable, and not easy to misspell. 

*** It does not mean that all long domains are not good. If you look at: Forsalebyowner.com or Healthcaresolutions.com … they are quite good ones too, brandable, recognizable. So in some cases, long domain names are also good to register it for your web site.

2 – Easy To Remember

It is easy for us to remember domains such as: Job.com, Car.com, Rent.com …Why? The answer is “They are generic domains”. You can remember generic domain names easier than not generic ones and you also easy to remember domain names like: ebay.com, Paypal.com… since they are unique domains. So if you can not register your domain from generic words, try to register it with something that easy to stick in the mind. 

3 – Hyphens or No Hyphens

Hyphens or not, it depends on your web site target. We would like to point out some not good points and good points:

– Not good points: It is not easy to remember a domain with hyphens. Sometimes web users will forget to type the hyphens.

– Good points: Most of good domain names without hyphens are gone and you may still have chances to get a domain name with hyphens with rich informative for your web site. A rich informative domain means a domain that contains good key words for your business and this will help your site get better search engine ranking.

4 –  Name Your Domain  with Popular Prefixes “i” “e” “The”, and “My”

Most of the generic-word domains are gone and you may still have chance to register a domain name with prefixes such as: “i” “e” “The” and “My”.  They are quite good if they go together with a generic domain like: iReport.com, iPhone, Eloan.com, Mycar.com …. they are easy to stick in the mind since they are quite unique ones. Just keep in mind that when you promote your web site, you need to promote your web site with the full form of the domain name. This will help people to remember the prefixes easier.

(Note: iReport.com has been sold for $750000)

5- Dot COM, ORG, NET, INFO ???

Dot com is king! Look at the top domain sale list history, You will see they are all dot com. Dot com is always the first choice for you to register a domain for your web site. If dot com is not available, you can consider to register the other domain extensions.

6 – Hard To Misspell and NOT Easy to Be Confused

Try to register a domain that is “Hard To Misspell and NOT Easy to Be Confused“. If you can not register a domain like that, you should consider registering the other variants of your domain name to drive traffic to your domain name. (If your domain is Onlineflower.com, you should register floweronline.com, onlineflowers.com, Onlineflower.net, Onlineflower.org … )

7- Related To Your Business

It will be the best if your business name matches with a key word of your business. In this case your business name is the first choice to register domain name for your web site. In case your business name is very long and/ or not related to key words of your business, you can consider registering a short domain name with rich informative about your business key words.

There is another way to consider about how to register a good domain for your web site through 4C-Model domain valuation:

Characters
The shorter a Domain Name is, the better. Apart from being easier to remember and spell, a short name has more impact and a high recall value. Five characters or less is ideal, and anything more than 20 characters has a substantially lower value.

Commerce
Ultimately, a Domain Name attains its value from its potential to drive traffic and deliver revenue to a business – in short, its marketability. Since branding is key to establishing a strong online presence, Domain Names that are based on well-known phrases, or are closely associated with a business opportunity with a sizable market share, enjoy a favorable position.

.Com
Location is everything, and many want to live in such coveted neighborhoods or cities as Beverly Hills, New York City, Paris, Singapore, or Hong Kong. That’s equally true of premium cyberspace. On the Internet, everyone prefers to dwell in the .com neighborhood. It’s the top-level domain (TLD) that embodies instant branding, and .com names enjoy a premium rating. (*** .com domain registration is the key)

Comparables
Take a look for the domain sold history and utilize these as the Comps for determining the value of a similar subject Domain Name. By doing so, we ensure that our Appraisal reflects current fair market value.

We do hope that this will give you some fresh ideas about how to register a good domain name for your web site.
