Up until recently, Themeforest forced their authors to sell their themes under a proprietary license. I’m not going to explain what GPL is, you can read about it on GNU Public License page. But long story short, Themeforest has recently gave their authors the freedom to sell their work under the GPL license.
This is where we recommend most new webmasters start out. Shared hosting means you will be on a server with hundreds of sites so you share the resources and costs of the server. It is a great option because it is affordable (starting at $5-7/mth) and you still get most of the features of a more powerful set up. Shared plans are often sold as ‘unlimited’ bandwidth and storage which is a bit of a misdirection in a way because the performance bottle neck isn’t going to be bandwidth or storage, it’s going to be processing power. A shared server will provide your site with plenty of processing power for a few thousand visitors a day, but if your site grows to an extent that it has many concurrent users then you are going to want to upgrade to a VPS or dedicated server…and for this reason we do recommend you go with a shared WordPress hosting provider who offers a good upgrade path. Shared WordPress hosting accounts always provide you with a web based interface like cPanel to manage the various elements of your site, including email setup, databases and typically offer easy installation tools for all the popular web site software packages. WordPress isn’t actually hard to install manually in any event, but the 1-click installers do make it faster and ensure that all the file permissions are set right so that future updates to themes and plugins are all easily performed via the WP control panel. As above, we think that GreenGeeks, Bluehost and Hostgator offer the best shared service.
In this case, you’ll need a web host that offers more than just a few basic shared hosting plans. Pay special attention to those that cover the spectrum of web hosting services as well as those with a variety of plan types that cater to specific business types (e.g. bloggers, small businesses, enterprises, agencies, e-commerce companies, and so on).
In result, your personal info, such as physical address, emails, telephone number, etc is hide from the public. Domain privacy is important because your domain record (ie. the WhoIs data) may also be used in ways that aren’t legitimate or desirable. Since anyone can look up a WhoIs record, spammers, hackers, identity thieves and stalkers may access your personal information! Unethical companies check domain expiration dates then send official looking “renewal” notices in an attempt to get the domain owners to transfer domains to their company, or send invoices that are service solicitations for search engine submissions and other questionable services.
Web hosting is a very competitive field. The features, options, pricing plans, etc., can be overwhelming. Most web hosting providers offer three pricing tiers, with features that vary between each plan.
And that provides an important lesson to website owners: it doesn’t matter if your hosting provider will allow you to go crazy with server resources if it ends up with your website loading slowly or going offline.
Basically anyone working and sharing the work with rest of the WordPress community is considered a contributor. One can contribute by answering support requests on forum, helping with documentation, organizing WordPress meetups and WordCamps, and so on. However, only those users who contribute to the development of the WordPress core are credited as core contributors.
Thats the thing Bryan, companies and corporations can’t stand when people say negative things about them, whether it is said online or offline. For this reason, yes they do have spies, very large teams of them in fact. The difference is that instead of calling them spies they call them “public relations”. Mr. Carwifi down there is an example. Want to test it out further? Go on Twitter and say something bad about a company, then tag them in it. More often than not, you’ll have a response within the hour, or a serving from their lawyers in your email.
Hi Bobby, Good question. I think the answer depends on the host. Most hosting company backups take the form of downloadable files you can use to manually restore your website, and this is great to have at the very minimum. But what the backup companies provide is a simple way to not only schedule regular backups but also to do simple restoration right from the console. Say you break your site, or it gets hacked, you can roll back to the latest backup with a few clicks. For non-technical webmasters that is a very nice option to have.
As you can in the screenshot, our test site loaded in less than a second. That’s faster than 96% of all tested sites. Considering that we didn’t need to install any performance optimization this result is quite impressive.
For example, only organizations can register a “.org” domain name, and only American citizens can register a domain name that ends in “.us.” Failing to meet the guidelines and requirements for each type of domain during the registration and payment process will result in the domain name being “released” back into the pool of available domain names; the customer will have to pick a top level domain for which they actually qualify, or cancel their purchase altogether.
