Do you Blog - The Kensington Jacaranda Walk 2020

Do you Blog?

Do you Blog? A Blog Post can be a personal diary, a project collaboration tool, a guide or any means of communicating and publishing information on the web. Blogging and posting relevant content is an incredibly useful tool to increase traffic to your website and to your services. That helps with SEO immensely because it gives Google and other search engines a reason to re-crawl your website to find new content to index.

You may wish to write about a walk you had with family and friends, a recipe you tried, a new workout or you may wish to promote a new service or product. You can write about anything. Everyone is doing it… be it for work or as a hobby.

How to Update PHP For Your WordPress Website

How To update PHP for Your WordPress WEBsite

PHP is one of the languages WordPress uses to build and maintain WordPress. Newer versions of PHP are both faster and more secure, so updating will have a positive effect on your site’s performance.

Before you do any updates/ upgrades on the Dashboard of your website make sure you have a decent backup plugin: a backup that will automatically backup your entire website on a daily basis and a backup that allows you to restore your entire website at a click of a button.

If you have a WordPress Website make sure you have these

If you have a WordPress Website Make sure you have These

You created a website and over the years you have added products, services, articles, plugins and all the rest that goes with keeping a website up and running. You have worked hard and the last thing you want is when you try to access your website… it is simply… “gone”!

It doesn’t exist anymore. You hosting company had “guaranteed” that they would backup your website regularly but when you phone your hosting company they now say that unfortunately they cannot restore your website…

Bad… very bad!

There are various reasons why your website “is no longer there”. It could have been hacked; there could have been a conflict between plugins or the hosting company went out of business… (as improbable as it may seem).

If you have a WordPress website it is ESSENTIAL that you have the following:

  1. a good hosting company
  2. a good ‘Backup and Restore’ plugin
  3. a good ‘security’ plugin and
  4. a ‘https’ certificate
Pitfalls when Migrating a Website to a New Hosting Company

Pitfalls when Migrating a Website to a New Hosting Company

What should have taken a few hours it went on for 8 long days… The objective was to migrate one of my sites from WordPress.com to Hetzner South Africa.

Why do I Enjoy Working with Hetzner

Why do I ENJOY WORKING with HetzneR?

Hetzner is a reputable hosting company with competent, friendly people. This is applicable to Hetzner South Africa and to Hetzner anywhere in the world.

Over the past few years I have experienced different hosting companies. It is incredibly frustrating when you are notified that “your website is down…”. This is not just bad for one’s visitors and Clients but very bad for your site rankings on Google and other search engines.

I have never had this problem with Hetzner. No silly excuses – everything just works!
