HostDime has taken action on our Colombia growth with the purchase of a land parcel in Bogotá, Colombia last week.
Most companies choose YouTube for their giant audience and brand recognition, but in some instances, YouTube may hurt your website rather then help.
Fasten your seat belts, the iPhone 6 is coming! With production starting next month, the rumored release date is Friday, September 19th for not one, but possible two iPhone models. Bloomberg reported yesterday that a 4.7 inch display and a 5.5 inch version would be realized together. Currently the iPhone 5s has a 4 inch screen.
A larger screen was a request iPhone users have had for years, and it looks like it’s finally here. Aside from that, we polled Surpass employees and came up with 8 other improvements we’d like to see in the iPhone 6.
How many of you close out every single app on your iPhone? What if I told you this is both a time-waster and it actually makes your battery worse?
Recently I’ve suspected my local ISP of throttling my YouTube speed because I can’t seem to make it through a single video without load problems. ♫ Everyday I’m Buffering. ♫
One of the worse feelings is realizing you’ve lost all your hard work, photos, videos, music, and files you’ve spent years collecting. If you are not backing up your data regularly, you are tempting the technology gods by being a hard drive crash away from complete deletion. Back up your PC at least once a month. Here’s the 5 best free backup services for your data.
Don’t you love it when you first get your laptop or smartphone and the battery lasts for many hours without a single charge? That power disappears pretty quickly after just a few battery life cycles. Your device used to last 24 hours; now you carry your charger everywhere you go. Let’s try to bump that battery back up to a full day’s worth. Here’s some helpful practices to keep that precious battery life lasting a little longer.
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.
In our previous post in this Surpass series, we discussed how to structure your site to be visible by the search engines for a particular term. Off page optimization is similar to this, but instead of making things visible, we are proving to search engines that our content is useful. This allows our website to rank a little higher each day that we work on this. You see, to the search engines, a link to a page is a vote up for its content which increases the authority of the site and the particular page it is linking to.
It seems to be an accepted fact that trends come and go. However, technological related trends do tend to have a knack for sticking around a bit longer. Case in point — the Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly known as E3, an annual trade fair deemed indispensable by businesspersons and nerds alike. This year’s fair is now underway in Los Angeles and will be featuring the best in video game software from such esteemed developers as Sony, Ubisoft, Sega, Electronic Arts, and of course, Microsoft. Needless to say, there will be a lot of nifty gadgets and cool gizmos on display. However, what does this have to do with web hosting?
In part one of this post, we discussed Meta Data and how it allows us to tell the search engines what our page is about. In this post, we will discuss what we must do to prove to Google and other search engines that our meta data and our actual content match up.
