Setting up a hosting domain

Getting a professional web hosting for your site, will make your site more secure and reliable for your customers to look and use.

A free domain name, will boost your visibility by giving your site some higher ranking.

How to Choose a Free Domain Name

To start with you need to choose the right domain name. Free sites that are all hosted by BlueHost, the largest hosting company, are usually premium web hosts that offer support at a low price.

Your choices for free domain name would include both gTLDs, such as.com and.org, as well as TLDs, such as.org. Even if you don’t plan to get a lot of traffic to your website, then the ability to get more exposure through such a free web hosting will be great, and there are options like wordpress shared hosting packages that are viable option for your website.
.

For example, a number of people have started calling their website at www.MyLife.org, a new premium domain, from its free domain name, www.mylifereader.net. These people have a good idea that their customers will come from there.

A person using their free domain name from BlueHost, their domain registration and DNS services, can simply visit the websites of this name, as it will be displayed in the search engine results pages of their search engine.

Converting a Free Domain Name to a Premium Domain Name

There is no need to change your current domain name. You need to make an appointment to have your domain name changed to a premium domain. It will cost around $20 and your new domain name is valid for one year, so the chances of getting lost in search engine result will be reduced.

A Domain Name that is Bad for SEO

The keyword that is going to be Google’s ranking factor of your website and its images is going to be your domain name. An unknown domain name will not rank high in Google searches and if it’s not registered properly, then your website is going to get buried in the search engine results pages. It is important to choose the domain name that is compatible with your website.

Not all web hosting companies offer domain name registration services and some don’t even offer you a domain name. However, if you do have a domain name registered with a web hosting company, then having a good quality domain name that is not available on the market, would be a plus.

How to Register a Domain Name with BlueHost

There are many web hosting companies that offer domains registration. For example, BlueHost, has a free plan that offers you a free domain name for a few days. You have to register it with their systems, and they offer high quality domain names.

The easiest way is to use their website hosting and domain name manager system called Bluehost, which is always quick to setup and access.

Once you have your domain name, you will also have to update it with the domain registrar. You can just use one of the many available domain registrars on the market, such as NameCheap, who have almost every domain name type.

Remember that if your existing domain name is of a lower quality, then you are going to have a harder time ranking higher in Google results.

When it comes to selecting a domain name, it’s all about getting the right hosting company for you.

To be able to choose a free domain name, there are a lot of reputable hosting companies on the market.

Website Pages Vs. Blog Posts

Sеаrсh еngіnе optimization (SEO) hаѕ the роtеntіаl tо bring large amounts оf free traffic tо a wеbѕіtе — frоm ѕресіfіс tаrgеt аudіеnсеѕ no less.

Althоugh mаnу оf the basic рrіnсірlеѕ оf SEO rеmаіn thе ѕаmе across dіffеrеnt kіndѕ оf website раgеѕ, there аrе ѕtіll dіffеrеnсеѕ іn SEO best рrасtісеѕ асrоѕѕ page tуреѕ.

How To Write an SEO optimized article? Step by Step Guide

Mоѕt nоtаblу, blog роѕtѕ аnd аrtісlеѕ nееd tо bе орtіmіzеd dіffеrеntlу frоm hоmе pages аnd thе lіkе, go right here to get all the details.

Wеbѕіtе Pаgеѕ Vѕ. Blоg Pоѕtѕ

Of course, a “wеbѕіtе” is аn аbѕtrасt іdеа; what wе thіnk оf аѕ wеbѕіtеѕ аrе асtuаllу оrgаnіzеd соllесtіоnѕ оf іndіvіduаl раgеѕ. Althоugh thе overall dоmаіn authority of a ѕіtе can аffесt rаnkіngѕ, Gооglе аnd оthеr search еngіnеѕ ѕtіll rаnk іndіvіduаl pages rаthеr thаn entire websites.

For the purposes оf thіѕ discussion, “wеbѕіtе pages” rеfеrѕ tо thе pages you’ll mоѕt соmmоnlу see оn аnу buѕіnеѕѕ wеbѕіtе: hоmе, аbоut, саrееrѕ, аnd capabilities pages аrе common еxаmрlеѕ. Prоduсt раgеѕ also fit in thіѕ саtеgоrу.

In соntrаѕt, a “blоg роѕt” іѕ a single page that соntаіnѕ text соntеnt іn thе ѕtуlе оf аn аrtісlе. Blog posts саn оf course contain vіdеоѕ and іmаgеѕ, аnd these thіngѕ саn іnfluеnсе rаnkіngѕ, but tеxt rеmаіnѕ thе mаіn drіvеr оf SEO.

Gооglе аnd other engines don’t literally аѕѕеѕѕ website раgеѕ and blog posts very dіffеrеntlу. Rаthеr, the dіffеrеnсеѕ in hоw реорlе uѕе these раgеѕ, аnd how thеу tеnd tо be сrеаtеd, соntrіbutе tо differences in ѕеаrсh ranking.

Kеу differences between wеbѕіtе раgеѕ and blog posts include:

-People соmе tо website раgеѕ fоr information аbоut a соmраnу. People соmе tо blоg posts fоr information аbоut a topic.
-Website раgеѕ аrе mоrе likely tо ѕtау constant, whеrеаѕ blоg роѕtѕ are рublіѕhеd on аn ongoing basis
-Wеbѕіtе раgеѕ are mоrе lіkеlу than blog posts tо асԛuіrе lіnkѕ, аѕ they аrе thе natural place for lіnkеrѕ to ѕеnd traffic

Thеѕе differences contribute tо a ѕіmрlе trend іn whаt rаnkѕ аnd whаt dоеѕn’t:

-Wеbѕіtе раgеѕ are mоrе likely to rank fоr hеаd terms than long-tail kеуwоrdѕ
-Blоg posts are more lіkеlу tо rаnk for lоng-tаіl keywords thаn hеаd terms

Reactive Programming with Algebra

This month we had 3 presentations, titled “Reactive Programming with Algebra”:

There is a 50 minute video recording of the latter presentation by Skills Matter; easy signup required.

We are about to start working with SugarScala (PDF), which seems to be a great tool for parsing Scala and implementing extensions. Interested to join? Contact andre.vandelft or anatoliykmetyuk at gmail.

Tutorials on SubScript

Hello!

Let me introduce myself: my name is Anatoliy Kmetyuk, I’m a student from Odessa, Ukraine. I’ve been contributing to SubScript since January 2014. I took part in Google Summer of Code 2014 with SubScript Actors project, aimed to facilitate SubScript-Akka collaboration.

Recently, a new section have appeared in this website, the Tutorials section (you can see it in the main menu bar). It contains the tutorials on SubScript to help you to start using SubScript. There are currently 2 groups of tutorials there: “Getting Started” and “Application Developers tutorial”.
The “Getting Started” tutorials explain how to start working with SubScript, as well as how to use the graphical debugger that is needed to debug your SubScript applications.
The “Application Developers tutorial” is a tutorial on SubScript language that will teach you how to write programs in SubScript.
Also, there’s another group of tutorials to be added in future: the “Core Developers tutorial”. This one will document the internals of SubScript, so that anyone can improve it, contribute to it or adjust it under his own needs.

We hope you’ll enjoy using SubScript! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

After the presentation at EPFL…

It is already two months after my presentation at EPFL. I am lagging behind here.

I spent two and a half very nice days at EPFL. The Scala team impressed with the ongoing projects. I gave a presentation on SubScript. This went fine except for two things:

  • we made a video recording using the same MacBook that ran the Keynote presentation and application demo’s. After a while the recording made the MacBook unresponsive, so we had to stop it.
  • when presenting axioms for the disrupt operator (“/“) someone at the audience noted that these were inconsistent. That was a bit embarrassing. Fortunately it is not that hard to repair the axioms. This is done in an updated version of the presentation slides, available here. At least I am glad that this error has been repaired now.

The day after the presentation, Eugene Burmako told me he wanted to see less local variables in the scripts. I realized he was right; local variables make scripts less elegant and concise. So I started working on some new language constructs to get rid of variables and to enhance data flow. I am quite happy with the result. I intend to create a new post on this soon.

During this work it became clear that I should make a minor language change: the question marks for script output parameters should precede these parameters, rather than come behind them: n? becomes ?n. That also makes script call expressions much easier to parse. I have meanwhile changed the question mark positions on the pages of this website; however, the SubScript compiler has not yet been changed, and neither have the example program files in the GitHub project. Older documents and presentation slides will not change at all, so beware for some inconsistency.

This weekend I also changed the SubScript Actors page. I hope SubScript may ease programming Akka actors in the same way it eases programming GUI controllers.

tl;dr: after a few months of doing other things it becomes now time again for me to work on the implementation.

Cheers,

André van Delft
