HostDime was on hand last week in Houston, Texas for the 7th annual cPanel conference. The convention was created to provide up-to-the-second information, training, and application for users of cPanel and WHM Automation software.
One of our biggest first world problems is a slow loading page. Not even 10 years ago, we would wait 20 to 30 seconds for a website to load, and that’s if you had a good dial up connection. Nowadays, 40 percent of people will abandon a site if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Each delayed second causes a 7% decrease in your conversion rate, so money is being lost literally by the second.
Your first contact with your future customer is site arrival. Sure you might have top-notch content and a beautiful page, but it means nothing if the site doesn’t load properly or on time. Speed is not just important, it’s essential. Here’s some helpful tips, plug-ins and websites you must be aware of to have a lightning fast Wordpress page.

World Backup Day is March 31st, and this is significant because that’s the day before April Fools Day. If you don’t back up your files and data, you end up looking foolish. This is a task we should all be doing on the regular, but we either neglect it or don’t understand the importance. All of your photos, videos, music, and files are just a hard drive crash away from vanishing into thin air. That being said, your web hosting space is definitely NOT the place for your own personal backup and here’s why.
On Thursday September 20th, 2012 HostDime attended and helped sponsor the Nap Ford Community School’s fundraiser event at Ember nightclub in Orlando. The event kicked off with a great musical set by Cornbread Blues followed by an amazing performance by CeCe Teneal and Soul Kamotion.
Most of your consumers will be easy to work with, pay their bills on time, and provide you very little hassle. But there are always those troublemakers who will make your life unpleasant and will refuse to pay for your services. In the movies, you’d just call one of your shady connections who’s handy with a baseball bat. But this is real life, and neither of us are gangsters, so here’s a helpful guide to deal with these slow and non-paying clients in a professional manner.
