5 SEO Advantages of Switching to HTTPS

0
SEO-advantages-switching-to-htpps
Linux Reseller Hosting

With Google considering HTTPS an important factor your ranking boost, the time has come to make a switch for your website: from HTTP to HTTPS, considering the benefits it will have on SEO

What is so different in this – just an additional ‘s’. But this additional ‘s’ is something that adds security to your website, as the name stands for ‘Secure Hyper Text Transfer Protocol‘ (HTTPS).

SEO-advantages-switching-to-https

There might be a few more questions you might have –
What the difference is between HTTP and HTTPS? How to make the switch, and if making the switch is right for your company in the first place? Why does Google prefer HTTPS for SEO rankings? What are the SEO benefits of HTTPS?

Lets have a look at each point –

Differentiating HTTP and HTTPS

Differentiating-http-https

HTTP was basically used to setup the websites who did not house confidential information as it was mostly used to access HTML pages, and it is essential to consider that other resources can be utilized through accessing HTTP.

HTTPS was developed to ensure authorization and exchange of confidential information in a secure manner to prevent unauthorized access.

HTTP and HTTPS are identical in many ways as they follow the same basic protocol, the difference being HTTPS offering an extra layer of security by using SSL to move data.

switching to https and is it really necessary for your website

This really isn’t that difficult. In most cases, if you purchase SSL certificate from your hosting provider, they will help you install it. You can always contact their support to assist you.

The necessity of installing it lies in the fact that if you are looking to stay in Google’s good books for a long time, you need to secure your website because Google loves security!

SEO benefits of HTTPS

1. Trust

If you noticed, from January 2017 Chrome has started adding a green padlock and ‘Secure’ written before the URL of the website in the address bar if the website is HTTPS. This just gives an additional boost to the customers to trust the websites they are browsing are secure enough. As of Jan 2017, Chrome has about 57.7% of users of the overall industry. So, if your site does not have the trusted stamp from Google Chrome, you are already losing out on more than half of the web browsing population directly.

address-bar

2. Security

HTTPS includes security for your SEO objectives and site by preventing tampering by third parties and making the site more secure for visitors. The encryption in the communication and URLs protects the transaction and browsing histories.

3. Privacy

Many people are of the opinion that HTTPS offers protection only to websites using sensitive passwords. This is not valid. Indeed, even regular content sites benefit from SSL encryption. It confirms the site is the one the Web server should be conversing with.

4. Increased Rankings

This is very obvious as it was confirmed by Google back in 2014 the slight ranking boost of HTTPS sites. So webmasters and SEOs need to keep this point in mind, though it may not be a major rank boosting signal to be isolated on its own, but HTTPS definitely gives an edge in ranking over HTTP.

5. Referrer Data

An important point to determine where your traffic is coming from. On an HTTP site, the traffic coming through will seem like “direct” traffic whereas, on an HTTPS site, the traffic coming in will be saved as referral traffic in your analytics report.

The Conclusion

You truly shouldn’t be worried about switching from HTTP to HTTPS as far as SEO is concerned. Google has been advising web admins it is safe to do so for years now. However, you need to make sure to communicate to Google that you moved your site from HTTP to HTTPS. You can check the best practices to follow when switching to https here.

If you want your SEO to be strong, want to avoid losing sales from the digital media and make browsing safe, it’s very much clear why we should switch to HTTPS for our websites.

So let us all join hands with Google in its #NoHacked campaign and help to make this web a safe space to browse.

How to Host your Website?

0
Linux Reseller Hosting

The web is a whole bunch of interconnected computers talking to each other either through phone lines, digital satellite signals, cable, and other types of data-transfer mechanisms by which they are connected.

How-to-Host-your-Website

The computers that are connected all the time are typically what is called a Server. servers are computers just like the one you’re using now to read this article, with one major difference; they have a special software installed called ‘server’ software.

Server software is created to ‘serve’ web pages and websites. Basically, the server computer has a bunch of websites loaded on it and it just waits for people (web browsers) to request or ask for a particular page. When the browser requests a page the server sends it out.

This post will let you through the very basics about Hosting and domain names and making your website live.

Registering your domain name

Registering a domain name gets you an official address for your website on the World Wide Web so that the rest of the web can find you. Like your home address is unique in the real world, there also cannot be any duplicate addresses on the Internet, otherwise no one would know where to go! In other words, domain names are unique addresses on the web.

If you want to have your own unique address on the web, your own domain name, it will cost a few bucks for each year you want to ‘own’ the name. The cost of registering a domain name ranges from less than $10 USD to $30 USD per year and maybe more. You can register a domain from 1 to 10 years.

The reason it costs is because there is this central ‘address book’ of all the world’s domain names that needs to be updated and kept going – somebody’s got to pay for that!

When you type in a website’s domain name or click on a link to that domain name, your browser starts asking servers where that particular domain name is sitting and the servers are able to tell the browser where to go.

How to get your website ‘live’ on the web

Here are the two steps to going live on the web:
1. Registering your domain.
2. Rent some server space.

1. Registering your domain

registering-domain

There are many companies out there that allow you to register the domain name for your website. Prices vary, as does the quality of service, but at the end of the day, they all handle the details of getting your domain name listed.

These days, you will find many of the names you may be interested in registering are already taken. As mentioned above, domain names have to be unique and many have been slurped up.

What is the difference between .com, .net, .org, etc?

Practically speaking there is really no difference these days. Search engines don’t discriminate between a .COM address and a .NET address. The only thing you might consider is that people tend to type in .COM automatically since it was the first publicly known domain extension. So when registering a domain name, one would go for the .COM first and if it was taken, one would then try for any of the others. (.net, .org, .tv, etc …)

You probably guessed; a .COM address is not the same domain name of the same name with a different extension. So for example:

5hoster.com is not in the same place as 5hoster.in

As such each of the addresses can be registered separately.

2. Renting server space to ‘host’ your website
renting-server-space

When renting space on a server so that it can serve your website on the World Wide Web, it is often called ‘hosting’. Companies that provide this service are often called ‘host’ or hosting companies. You can choose which type of hosting would you prefer: shared hosting, dedicated hosting, vps hosting or cloud hosting.

After you registered your domain, all you need to do it contact a hosting company and tell them you want to host you website and that you have a proper domain name. They will guide you through the process and you should be live on the web in no time! Some hosting companies do provide with a domain name too. You can ask them for more details if you need any.

A cheaper option

Some people may not want to buy a domain or go for free hosting because they have just a personal website for fun or practice. You can still get your website live on the web by using a free hosting service that allows to create what they call a ‘sub-domain’. A sub-domain is just a domain that is part of another domain. In that case, your website address will be like, for example:

www.freehostingprovider.com/YourWebsite/

Or it could be like:

yourWebsite.freehostingprovider.com

This is fine for fun/project websites, but if you are serious about your website (say it’s your business website) using sub-domains is like taking someone else’s business card and writing you name on it! Also, there are security concerns.

One last point, I’ve heard of free hosting services that will allow you to host proper domains with them for free and without annoying ads that other free host will insert into your pages. But I’ve never used them, and in my opinion, you always get what you pay for.

Choosing the Right Hosting plan

You should check out the following before choosing which plan to go for as per your requirement:
choosing-right-hosting-plan

  1. Amount of web space

This means how much web space the web hosting company will allow you to use for your web site. This can vary but usually starts at around the 100 megabytes mark, and can go all the way up to 1000 or 2000 megabytes. For all but the biggest web sites, 100MB is more than adequate. Some web hosting companies offer much more space – they are able to do this because they know that the average web site comes in at less than 100 megabytes.

  1. Number of email addresses

This means how many email addresses the hosting company will permit you to have. For budget accounts, this is usually somewhere between 1 and 10 email addresses. Some higher-end packages permit say 250 addresses.

  1. Bandwidth (or data transfer)

This is a much misunderstood measure, but it is really important if your web site starts to generate a lot of interest from web users. It means the amount of data your web site can transmit to web users. For example, if a web page in your web site is 10 kilobytes (about 1000 words on the page) in size, and one Internet user views it, you have used 10 kilobytes of bandwidth. If 10 users request that page you have used 100 kilobytes of bandwidth. Bandwidth is normally measured monthly.

Most small web sites will need under half a gigabyte of bandwidth per month. That means you can serve about 52,000 web pages per month (assuming the pages are an average of 10 kilobytes in size).

  1. Windows or UNIX?

The last major differentiating factor between web hosting packages is the operating system. Just like your desktop computer (probably running Microsoft Windows or an Apple Mac OS), web servers run an operating system. It’s the software that makes the computer go. There are two major types of OS in the web hosting world – Windows and UNIX. The major variant of UNIX is called Linux.

For basic web sites it doesn’t really matter whether you choose Linux or Windows hosting. Your pages will work just the same whichever you choose. But for more advanced users it pays to make the right choice.

Which OS to choose comes down to what you want to do with your web site. For example if you want to install certain apps such as WordPress then you need to know which OS the app runs best on. Here are some examples:

Apps that run better on Linux:

WordPress blogging system
Magento shopping cart
Joomla website building software

Apps that run better on Windows:

Umbraco website building software
nopCommerce shopping cart
BlogEngine.net blogging system

But – almost all the Linux apps can also run on Windows!

Moving your website files onto the server

After you have your domain name registered and your hosting service in place, the last step is to upload the website onto the server. You can transfer your website to your host’s server using an FTP program.

An FTP program is a type of software that is used to move files from one computer to another over the Internet. FTP is the acronym for: file Transfer Protocol, this just means that this is a ‘way’ of moving files. There are several free FTP programs you can use to move your files onto the server, and many HTML editors and web design programs like Dreamweaver have FTP capabilities built in.

One option you probably have to FTP your files to the server is Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer 5 and up have an FTP program built right in and you can use it by just typing in the FTP address of the server in the address bar preceded by the keyword: FTP. Here is an example:

http://ftp//192.99.204.1/yourweb…

speed Up WordPress with managed wordpress hosting

managed wordpress hosting
managed wordpress hosting

If you are blogger or developer you will surly agree on my opinion that WordPress is one of fastest growing and great platform to build your own website. You will find lots of tutorial on how to boost or increase the loading speed of your website. I have been working on WordPress from many years and narrow down my experience while working on WordPress to make it faster than normal. Some of elements on this post might be discussed on the forums before but still wanted to get all points which I personally implemented and got massive response which helped my blog boost.

1st I want you to categories your website in 2 sections.

One is “Is your website got Lots of traffic ?

Two is “Is your website has good amount of Pictures/Video?

When we talk about planting a tree , we should also think seriously about the soil type we going to plant it. In same way when we want to build a WordPress website we should also seriously think of the hosting provider we going to choose.

Some of cheap hosting provider may give you attraction of cost but they will cheat you on Server resources where your website will not get enough resources to serve your visitors properly. And as a website owner I will still try to balance between the cost of web-hosting and website loading speed and uptime (MOST IMPORTANT).

Above I have asked you to categories your website in 2 section so why is that ? , simple answer as in both cases you will need to use good amount of server resources (memory_limit,CPU usage,Bandwidth limit, Server port speed, visitors limit etc..) I will again come back on the resources point which is important part of the website loading factor, will now cover the application base support to boos/speed up your website.

Get ready to lose sleep at night: according to a report by the Microsoft Bing search team, a 2-second longer delay in page responsiveness reduced user satisfaction by 3.8%, increased lost revenue per user by 4.3%, and a reduced clicks by 4.3%. You must know that Google now includes site speed in it’s ranking algorithm , means that your site’s speed effects SEO !

 


How To Speed Up WordPress

1. Start using Best framework/ Theme.

While building the website you should use the light wait framework or theme which is the 1st steps towards the faster website page. I would suggest you to use Twenty Fifteen “framework” (aka the default WP theme) is lightweight and quite speedy. According to my personal experience you can use Thesis Theme Framework , its easy to customize and build for faster loading purpose.

2. Use trusted Caching WordPress plugins

Using the caching wordpress plugins are useful as it allow you to cache your content and reduce the loading time. The list goes on but the best I feel is w3 Total Cache, it has all features you needed to boost your website. Its easy to install and use.

3. Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
When possible use the CDN and its gives you another level of caching the web-pages of your website. Its goes viral when the pages loads from the nearest CDN server and the speed it deliver is dazzling fast.

4. optimize your pages specially home page.

Things that you can do include:

 

  • Show excerpts instead of full posts
  • Reduce the number of posts on the page (I like showing between 5-7)
  • Remove unnecessary sharing widgets from the home page (include them only in posts)
  • Remove inactive plugins and widgets that you don’t need
  • Keep in minimal! Readers are here for content, not 8,000 widgets on the homepage

5. Optimize your Images.

Images are main factors of website as its showcase your website and give a stylish look and more on meaning to your website. In another hand it add extra page size on your website to reduce it we can use the image optimized (automatic) while not to compromise the quality of the images. I suggest you to use the WP-Smush to reduce the images size by keeping the quality.

6. Optimize database time to time.

You will find some good plugins to keep clean and optimize your database/posts on internet, the one I use and recommend is the WP-optimize this will allow you to optimize your post/database/drafts/spam/tables to reduce the overheads.

7. Disable the Image hack(Hotlink protection) and leeching of content.

Why hotlink protection enable ? Simply to stop bandwidth theft and your contents It occurs when other sites direct link to the images on your site from their articles making your server load increasingly high. You can use your cpanel to enable it or ask your hosting provider to enable it for you.

 

8. Use .htaccess to enable expires header to Static resources.

You will lots of examples of enabling the expires headers to static resources on Google. You can use the.htaccess files to enable it. Make sure your webhosting provider does allow it via htaccess before choosing it.

9. Add LazyLoad to your images.

This is the technique you can use to reduce the images load time on home page by allowing the images load only on the scroll down even of images which are not covered in the browsers sections. Example only the images visible in the visitor’s browser window , then, when reader scrolls down, the other images begin to load, just before they come into view. Again you can easily do it with the help of the plugin such as Jquery Image Lazy load plugin.

10. Control the post on your home page and archives.

Normally we do save post while writing it to avoid lost of contents. WordPress would store every single one of these drafts, indefinitely.Now, when this post is done and published, why would I need all of those drafts stored?

That’s why I use the Revision Control plugin to make sure I keep post revisions to a minimum, set it to 2 or 3 so you have something to fall back on in case you make a mistake, but not too high that you clutter your back-end with unnecessary amounts of drafted posts.

11. Disable Trackbacks and pingbacks.

WordPress default interact with the others posts/blogs that are equipped with pingbacks and trackbacks.Every time another blog mentions you, it notifies your site, which in turn updates data on the post. Turning this off will not destroy the backlinks to your site, just the setting that generates a lot of work for your site.

12. Use CloudFlare .

CloudFlare is some what smellier with the CDN concept but its again good to have it on your website. This will not only increase your website speed but also the security and avoid the bad traffic from your website.

13. Get Static HTML instead of PHP when possible.

This one is a little bit advanced, but can drastically cut down your load time if you are desperate to include page load speeds, if you know how to do it get the static HTML instead of the php code when possible on your website.

14. Use Attracta SEO tool to get guide on SEO.

Use of the attracta SEO tools will help you to find the problems on your website and guide you to build your website faster and SEO ranking too. Before purchasing the webhosting provider make sure they provide it with cpanel.

15. Enable Compression.

Enabling the compress from your cpanel is great help to reduce the page size and the loading time of your website.

16. Choose a Best WebHost.

I have purposefully kept this point in last as when you understand all above points then only you will get the “choosing Best hosting provider” seriously. As all above points directly or indirectly suggest you to choose the hosting provider which support all these features. So till here you understand all and how you need to know how to find such hosting providers as lost of false promises can be done while purchasing it. I have also gone through lots of hosting provider and used them as try and error basis. Lots of provider do claim to serve with the MANAGED WORDPRESS HOSTING but they don’t, some of them don’t even know what is managed wordpress and how to deal with wordpress issues.

Its all matter of choice whether to follow the guide line or not, the reader may have their own opinion on it . All i have to list down my own experience and try to help to the new comers and stragglers.
