More and more of our daily computer tasks are moving to the internet. Few years ago i used to have a small software for anything: to tell me the weather, to read books, a calendar software, time tracking software. Now, i use all of them online, calendars, time trackers, document editing.
The bad intended persons may lose interest of trying to get into my computer to show me how i can take advantage of the 500$ antivirus which real cost is 1000$. Now the juice is online. The benefit of getting and placing his offer without approval on a website with decent traffic is similar with infecting hundred of thousands of computers. Read the rest of this entry »

WordPress is a very popular blogging platform and recently it is seen as the best content management system around. I can tell you that at least for small websites it is from far the best. Depending on what you want to do you ma find it best to use a framework, or to use joomla or other content management system, but when it is about a simple website or a blog the best choice is definitely wordpress.
Due to it’s popularity, most hosting providers are advertising their hosting plans as “WordPress hosting” or “Blog hosting”.

When it comes to website, they have to be hosted somewhere, on a computer that is always on, called a server. Since it is very hard to keep a computer online always by yourself, there are companies that do this for you, in exchange of a small sum of money.
Well, they are quite a lot of them around here, but who to choose ? The best hosting is the one who fit your website.
Judging on the poll i run here, on the right of the website, asking “How many websited do you own”, many people have more that 2 websites. 21% of the voters have more than 100 websites, well, it is unbelievable to think that someone can own 100 websites, but that doesn’t mean that he have to take care of everyone, he just own them. Maybe they were created just to promote other websites, but one thing is certain: there are different needs from web hosting. Read the rest of this entry »
