Here is a short list of the benefits you will take advantage of on the new platform:

  • enhanced service stability – we have minimized the servers’ vulnerability to hack/DDoS attacks by storing applications, emails and databases on a few machines instead of just one
  • faster servers – we have increased the network bandwidth to 10 Gbits, which means better server connectivity and hence better speeds for your sites
  • faster maintenances – by ensuring spare servers, we have simplified server maintenance procedures and hence minimized frustrating service interruptions and downtimes
  • migration to SSDs – now all user accounts with up to 1 GB of total storage are hosted on SSDs, which are much faster and more durable than the regular HDDs. We are planning to do the same with the rest of the accounts as well.
  • web accelerators (Memcached, Varnish, Node.js) – we’ve added tools that will speed up your websites significantly.

This major system upgrade is aimed at making our service even faster, at improving your websites’ credibility with the search engines and at enhancing the on-site experience of your visitors.

what-is-wordpress

WordPress is the most famous web application accessible online. It boasts more than 46.000.000 yearly downloads and at the moment stands behind more than 18% of all websites that exist on the internet. Whilst it started as a standard blogging system, it very quickly evolved into a full–fledged CMS through which it is possible to design any kind of web site.

WordPress’ progress owes a great deal to its energetic community. This community has developed many different completely free WordPress web themes, plugins incorporating completely new functionality and websites dedicated just to WordPress.

8 Signs – Time To Ask IT For New Computer

8 signs it’s time to ask IT for a new computer

If your boss hands you a new assignment and tells you, “Take your time”, good chance you were day dreaming. Snap out of it! You are officially part of the 21st century workforce. Emails need to be checked, Word and Excel always ready and Internet browsers should be as fast as a blink of an eye. Today’s work environment is go-go-go all the time, and phrases like “take a break” or “slow down” seem to have been left behind.

So what do you do if you’re stuck in this 21st century work environment with a PC that’s slow and uncooperative? It’s time to talk to IT about getting a new one.

If you’re not sure if you should be having this conversation, see if any of the below apply to you.

1. Your computer is a single-tasker

 Your computer is a single-tasker

At home, you have five windows open, you’re streaming music and reading an online story all at once. But at work, it’s one window at a time and the thought of leaving a document open while you check email makes you shudder. If your backup plan involves your smartphone, then it’s time for a new computer. Today’s PCs that run on the latest generation of Intel processors offer twice the performance of 4-year-old models, giving you the chance to experience that new-fangled, multi-tasking thing everyone’s talking about.

2. Your PC is officially out to lunch

Your PC is officially out to lunch

Few things are more frustrating than watching your screen go black right in the middle of a big project or minutes before an urgent deadline, especially when you haven’t hit the save button. If your computer is prone to taking a hiatus or two, place it on permanent break time.

3. You can type a Russian novel before the first word appears on the screen

You can type a Russian novel before the first word appears on the screen

No one’s calling on you to turn into a court reporter, but it would be nice if you could read at least some of that email before you’re ready to click send. A new PC will work at your speed and you won’t have to wait for it to catch up. Can you picture it? Probably not yet.

4. Your PC crashes more often than Evel Knievel

Your PC crashes more often than Evel Knievel

When Evel crashed, you saw fire, explosions and excitement. When your old computer crashes, there’s certainly no excitement. Also, your desire to remain employed prevents the fire and explosions.

5. Moving your PC could be the next big Cross Fit-like exercise craze

Moving your PC could be the next big Cross Fit-like exercise craze

If you need to brace yourself before you move your PC, it’s time for a newer model. Today the average laptop weighs 6 pounds or less, and new PCs are 50 percent thinner than those made a few years ago. So save the heavy lifting for the gym and leave your weight belt at home.

6. People mistake your computer for a vintage toy

People mistake your computer for a vintage toy

That’s silly of course. At least vintage toys have value. But, if younger co-workers aren’t even sure how to turn your PC on, it’s time for an upgrade.

7. The thought of unplugging your PC, even for a moment, terrifies you

The thought of unplugging your PC, even for a moment, terrifies you

Your cubicle shouldn’t feel like an emergency room. New PCs offer three times the battery life over older models, so tell IT you want to pull the plug on your old PC permanently.

Today’s computers are smaller, lighter, have more memory and boot up in 6 seconds or less. If you’re tired of your PC being the punchline of office jokes, tell IT it’s time for a new PC.

8. The End has come for XP

windows-xp-the-endWindows XP… The End. Time to upgrade. Even I had problems letting go. But trust me, you can do it. The 21st century awaits you.

Responsive Web Design aka Adaptive Web Design #ResponsiveDesign #WebDesign

Responsive Web Design

 

Essentially the term was used in Responsive Web Design, an article by Ethan Marcotte on A List Apart. In general, the article proposed addressing the ever-changing landscape of devices, browsers, screen sizes and orientations by creating flexible, fluid and adaptive Web sites. Instead of responding to today’s needs for a desktop Web version adapted to the most common screen resolution, along with a particular mobile version (often specific to a single mobile device), the idea is to approach the issue the other way around: use flexible and fluid layouts that adapt to almost any screen.

Responsive websites are those crafted to use W3C CSS3 media queries with fluid grids and commonly also fluid images, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment. The idea of responsive web design is to make websites that fit multiple screen sizes. For the designer and developer that means they only have to work on one version of the website instead of designing one for desktop computers and another for mobile devices. Fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries are the three technical ingredients for responsive web design, but it also requires a different way of thinking.

Core Concepts
Three key technical features are the heart of responsive Web design:

  1. Media queries and media query listeners.
  2. A flexible grid-based layout that uses relative sizing.
  3. Flexible images and media, through dynamic resizing or CSS

Truly responsive Web design requires all three features to be implemented.

The key point is adapting to the user’s needs and device capabilities. Suppose a mobile user will be viewing your site on a small screen. Taking the user’s needs into account doesn’t just mean adapting your content to the screen size. It also means thinking about what that mobile user will require first when visiting your site and then laying out the content accordingly. Maybe you’ll present the information in a different order. Don’t assume the user won’t need access to all the site information because she’s on a mobile device. You might need to change the fonts or interaction areas to respond better to a touch environment. All these factors influence responsive Web design.

While mobile devices are changing the display landscape, with the appearance of more and more small screens, don’t forget what’s happening at the other end of the spectrum. Displays are also getting larger and with higher resolution. Having to serve both segments shouldn’t stop designers from being innovative on either.

Responsive Web Design or Adaptive Design has evolved from being a strong trend to become a reality of the web today. In a world that has been conquered by mobile devices over the past two decades, no one now understands a website that cannot be viewed on different screen resolutions, or at the very least the minimum provided on smartphones and tablets. The latest surveys on internet use in many countries no longer make a point of discussing the use of these portable devices because they are a reality: connections to the internet from these devices has grown exponentially over recent years.

If you have not updated we recommend you do. If you do not know this web design technique already we recommend you study, research and learn about it. Make sure your website displays correctly with mobile devices. Use a responsive website design that adapts to any device, create a separate mobile site, or use mobile web development tools to optimize your current site.
