Because of its sheer volume of WordPress websites on the web (about 28% of all sites), it attracts attackers. But WordPress is not a new platform.

What are the advantages of semi-dedicated servers?


Semi-dedicated servers are a time-proven solution for owners of resource-consuming sites who need to migrate from a regular shared hosting platform to a more powerful one at a reasonable cost.

Why Social Media Works


Social Media Works These days, when a person starts a small business, one of the first questions he or she is asked by prospective clients, customers, friends and family is the inevitable “are you on Facebook?” For some, the answer is “yes, of course!” For other, less tech-friendly folk, however, the answer is often a dismissive middle-ground response like “well, not yet, but maybe in the near future.” Unfortunately for the latter, the importance of social media in today’s business climate cannot be overstated. The need to establish a social media presence is inescapable, with many customers—especially millennials—opting to interact with companies almost completely online. Affordable, Dynamic Content With a Life of its Own Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter work for business content because they are inherently dynamic. The information is meant not only to be seen, but [...]
