All Bout DNS: From How It Works to Related Security Concerns

Websites, laptops, tablets, servers, and all other devices that connect to the internet have an Internet Protocol (IP) address that enables them to find and communicate with one another.

Accessibility, reliability, and speed – these 3 things seem to be the key requirements for pretty much anything on the Internet. And especially for cloud-hosted routers. In fact, according to the 2021 Cloud Managed Services Market Size And Forecast, the cloud-managed market that reached $39.83 billion in 2020 will grow to more than $117.65 billion by 2028.

How Page Speed Affects SEO & What’s The Role of Hosting Here

Loading please wait. This is perhaps one of the most frustrating things your page visitor can get. And a frustrated page visitor usually results in a never-again-returning website user. Optimizing page speed, then, becomes business critical.

Things got a bit more complicated especially for web masters and SEO experts when Google rolled out 3 new metrics to its Core Web Vitals update. And as of May 2021, page loading speed became a direct ranking factor for all pages (NOTE: Google first announced that page speed applies as a SEO ranking metric for mobile search engines in 2018).

So, how exactly does the speed of your web pages affect SEO? And most importantly, what does web hosting have to do with it?

If you’re purchasing your hosting plan for the first time, chances are you’re going to need something that will help you manage the hosted services and the servers as well. Which means you must opt for the right hosting control panel that will benefit you the most in terms of dealing with things like databases, tracking multiple logins, SSL, modules or entire apps you want to use, configuring settings for PHP and others.

Consider the fact that you may be a person with little technical know-how, and it all starts to get a little bit messy. It all sounds way too complicated and it could take a lot of time for you to work out the correct settings on your own.

Some web hosting providers deliver a control panel within the hosting plans they offer, while other times you have to purchase your hosting plan and the control panel separately. Which could further add up to the entire web hosting control panel complexity.

WordPress Hosting vs Web Hosting: What’s The Difference?

Are you puzzled by Web hosting vs WordPress hosting and do you see them as one and the same thing? This comparison article is a must-read then.

The uncompromising digital world requires stable digital presence. Which means you have no other choice but to keep everything online, running, available, and secure. Subscribing to a hosting plan and a hosting service, then, is a must. It sustains your business growth and company and supports your creativity (if you’re a blogger, a photographer or any other type of digital content creator with their own digital space), BUT only when you’ve chosen the right hosting type.

Unfortunately, there appears to be a (somewhat worrying) confusion among “hosting seekers” and even some of our first-time clients when they purchase their hosting plan. And that is their misunderstanding about the difference between WordPress hosting and Web hosting.

Importance of Keeping your Website Content Up-to-date (+ Fresh Ideas)

Website Content

No one likes a website that has its last piece of original content dating back a year and a half ago. This is a sure way of getting your website quickly forgotten even by its once-loyal visitors. In the information age, there is an abundance of available sources and make no mistake – your visitors will soon become someone else’s if you don’t take the right steps. Besides that, search engine crawlers will not be forgiving to a not frequently updated website. You will soon find yourself in results pages where people just don’t go to.
