How to Choose Between SSD and HDD VPS Hosting

Reseller Club Blog -

Modern-day businesses are beginning to realize the importance of agile hosting services. It has become evident that the quality of hosting will determine the success of several crucial parameters such as SEO, bounce rate reduction, customer retention, and to an extent even the sales numbers. Given the relevance of these factors in determining the success of any business, companies have begun to look for faster and better hosting services. Gone are the days when companies would rely solely on the options provided by their website developers. Today, companies research the best possible solutions and evaluate what may be ideal for them. While most organisations have already made the move from Shared to VPS Hosting, smart organizations are diving further to determine the benefits between SSD vs HDD VPS Hosting. Let us try to find out what is the difference between Solid-State Drive and Hard Disk Drive along with your best possible option. Mechanism Before we take a look at the difference between SSD and HDD, it is vital to understand the underlying working mechanism of both technologies. HDD is a decades-old technology based on the mechanism of vinyl records. The HDD drive stores data in patterns magnetically. It has a thin metal disk which rotates at 7200 RPM to record and read data. Each driver is equipped with sensors capable of reading the data and sending it back to the motherboard. The problem, however, arises with the fact that the disk will approximately spin 3.8 billion times a year leading to wear & tear and eventually some mechanical failure. On the other hand, SDD does not contain any moving parts. It stores data on interconnected flash memory chips. It can be seen as an upsized and advanced version of the regular pen drives. SSD uses a NAND-based flash memory making it more secure even when the device is turned off. Speed The working mechanism plays a significant role in dictating the outcome of SSD vs HDD Speed tests. HDD is equipped with moving parts bringing lesser read speeds and write speed as compared to SSD. SSD with its NAND flash memory is capable of clocking substantially high read and write speeds. The rotational latency in HDD leads to lower speeds when compared to SSD. It is obvious that hosting servers employing SSD will offer better speeds than service providers using HDD storage. A faster loading website will give a significant boost to your SEO and improve your Google ranking. Search engine algorithms give importance to the website loading time in determining the rankings. Google and other search engines rewards websites with faster loading times as it provides better customer experience. A faster loading website also gives a better customer experience as they can navigate without any lag and waiting time. Also, with the attention span of viewers reducing with ever increasing internet speeds, you have a narrow window to attract a customer before they decide to switch to another website. Web hosting with SSD ensures that your customer is delighted to visit your site and use your product or services. Data Security Data security is another crucial parameter that can severely affect your organization. The hosting servers are operational 24*7 which is different from the production environment. Overloading of hardware with I/O requests can lead to the failure of the hard disk. Such a failure could cause your website to go offline and raise uncertainty over the recovery of your data. While most data centres do keep a backup of the data, but there is always a possibility that you may lose some due to unforeseen circumstances. It is worth noting that the cost of data recovery with HDD is higher than that for SSD. SSD comes with faster processing time reducing the risk of failure due to increased I/O requests. These also do not have any mechanical parts that could undergo wear & tear over a period of time and lead to mechanical failure. So, your data is extremely secure with SSD VPS hosting. Environmental Factors The usage of SSD drives in data centres results in lower power consumption when compared with the power consumed by the HDD drives. This is because the latter generates heat due to the mechanical moving parts and needs more energy to cool down. SSD drive, on the contrary, does not generate any such heat during its operation. Besides saving the environment, opting for SSD VPS hosting will also save your financial resources as the plans are comparatively cheaper. Conclusion The aforementioned benefits clearly indicate that hosting your website with SSD based VPS Hosting will have long-term benefits for your company. Although, it is essential for you to evaluate the needs of your organisation before switching to SSD VPS hosting. If you have an HTML based static site, you may not see substantial benefits. However, if your company has a high-performance website with heavy daily traffic, you will definitely benefit from SSD VPS Hosting. It is worth noting that the prices of SSD drives have come down significantly in the past few years. These have ensured that many notable hosting service providers have switched to SSD storage. At Resellerclub, all our VPS Hosting plans from Standard to Elite come with SSD storage options. The SSD VPS Hosting plans offered by us provide storage space from 20-120 GB and an average OS boot time of 8-12 seconds. SSD enables backup in about 6 hours, data access in 20 ms, spare up to 6% of CPU power and are less likely to fail. Unless the efforts required to switch out-weigh these benefits, you should switch to SSD Hosting. For any further assistance and to know more about the switching process, you can get in touch with our 24*7 support centre.

Web Design Trends 2019

HostGator Blog -

The post Web Design Trends 2019 appeared first on HostGator Blog. Looking at the latest web design trends will allow us to peer into the future of where the web is headed. This doesn’t mean you need to fully switch up your current design to adhere to the latest trends, but they’re good to keep an eye on nonetheless. If your website has been in need of a makeover, then maybe this will be the year you finally switch things up. If you want to learn how to create a beautiful website that follows the latest web design trends, HostGator can help. If anything this year bodes well for web experimentation. It seems that people are bored with the same old same old and want a new and exciting take on classic design. This doesn’t mean making sites so experimental that they’re hard to use, but instead more interesting, engaging, and unique. Learn about the biggest web design trends in 2019 and what they mean for the future of your website. Then, we’ll include a website builder comparison to help you decide on the best option for you and your needs. find the best website builder to bring these to life on your website. 1. A Focus on User Experience Offering your visitors a solid user experience should be at the top of your list. Today’s web users demand an enjoyable user experience above all else. If your website is confusing and hard to use you’re not only going to be annoying your visitors, but you’re going to cost your business a lot of money. This is doubly true if you’re directly selling anything through your website. The act of finding a product, adding it to the cart, and completing the purchase should be entirely seamless. In the past it seemed like web design trends and most websites would neglect the journey of the user and instead placed a focus on having a trendy design. No matter how “cool” your website looks, there’s really no point unless it’s converting your visitors and they’re actually enjoying their experience. As competition online continues to grow more fierce, expect those websites that place a focus on user experience first to have long and successful futures. 2. Clean and Clear Design Having plenty of whitespace has been an important web design trend for years. However, recently it’s grown in its importance and application. The biggest reason whitespace continues to be a dominating trend is because it makes your website much easier to use. By incorporating a lot of whitespace into your design you’re not bombarding your visitors with too much information. It also gives you the room to focus on important areas of your site. Or, direct your visitor’s attention to areas that are the most beneficial to them. Having plenty of whitespace is a central tenet of minimalist design. Minimalism will continue to be a dominating trend well into the future. By having a minimalist design you make it easier for your users to find what they’re looking for. As you’ll soon learn below other trends like increased use of video and scrolling-based websites both enhance this minimalism trend. 3. A Large Focus on Mobile Today more people access the internet from their mobile devices than they do from a laptop or standard computers. This means that your design must offer a stellar mobile experience. Offer a poor mobile experience or a site that doesn’t function properly on a mobile device, and you’re going to lose a lot of your users. If you haven’t gone responsive yet, here’s another thing to consider. Most users will start their search journey on their mobile devices. Plus, sites that aren’t mobile-friendly won’t rank as well in the search engines. So, not only will your site receive less traffic from the search engines, but any traffic that you will receive will have a difficult time actually using your site. Making your website mobile-friendly isn’t so much a “trend” as it is an essential web design best practice. The most effective way to embrace mobile devices is to upgrade your site to a responsive web design. With a responsive web layout your site will automatically adjust to the screen size it’s being viewed upon. 4. Embedded and Integrated Video Video is exploding in popularity online. All signs suggest that video is the future. Even social media networks like Facebook and Instagram are doubling down on video content. Plus, YouTube is already the second largest search engine in the world. If you haven’t embraced video, it’s not too late. In fact, one of the emerging web design trends is embedding video into your website. Video is an incredibly engaging medium. How many times have you continued to watch a video, just because it started playing on the site you’re on? And we’re not talking about annoying video pop-ups either that you can’t seem to turn off, no matter how hard you try. Instead, we’re talking about creating intentionally engaging videos that act as an actual part of the design of your site. Instead of standing out they play an integral role in keeping users on your site and informing them about your products and services. These don’t have to be incredibly long videos either. Think of them as moving design elements whose goal is to intrigue and capture the attention of your visitors. Adding videos to your website and content can also have the added effect of improving your site’s search engine rankings. Google has user engagement metrics which act as indicators of a quality site. Sites where users spend more time will be given a higher ranking, as these metrics suggests a site is very high quality. 5. Broken Grid Layouts You might already be familiar with grid layouts. A grid is essentially a hidden series of horizontal and vertical lines that your website’s elements will adhere to. You can see the classic grid at work on most existing websites. You have the logo in the upper left-hand corner, and the navigation menu extending across the top of the screen, along with any other elements arranged below it in an orderly manner. But, with a broken grid layout, you’ll see elements that make the grid seem broken. There will be overlap of design elements, along with text and photos that don’t adhere to the traditional grid. Usually, this is done to give emphasis to certain elements of your website. However, to be effective with a broken grid layout it needs to be done intentionally. Otherwise, you run the risk of having a website that simply looks confusing or jumbled. The worst is a website that ever-so-slightly breaks the grid. Upon first glance, it might not look like something is wrong, but you and your visitors will get the feeling that there’s something off about the website. Beyond the broken grid there’s also been an increase in the use of fluid and more comfort inducing shapes. With more natural and free form shapes you can induce a different feeling in your users when they land on your site. Instead of the purely rigid and geometric designs of days past, those pushing the edge of web design are introducing more natural shapes. 6. Nostalgic Design Elements The 80s and 90s are back in full force, and we’re not just talking about shows like Stranger Things and books like Ready Player One. A previous web design trend that’s been in place for years has put an emphasis on flat and modern design, creating minimalist websites that look like they were born in the future. But, just like fashion moves in a circular fashion, so do our web design trends. This doesn’t mean you should create a 90’s site that looks like the first rendition of a Geocities page. Instead, you should take design cues from previous generations as a whole. This means embracing color schemes and taking typography cues from generation’s past. By embracing the past you can create a new and wholly unique design. Since the web didn’t really exist back then in the state it does now, you can create designs that haven’t been seen on the web before. If this web design trend speaks to you, consider implementing color schemes from times past. Or keep an eye out for a cool old-school font you can use for your headers or your logo. 7. Sites that Encourage Scrolling If you’ve had your website online for any time at all, then you’re probably aware of the term “above the fold”. This means that all of your important graphic design and branding elements should be above the fold of your site, so it’s the first thing your website visitors will see without having to scroll. It seems that web users of the past used to hate scrolling down the page with their mouse, trackpad, or thumb. But, today’s web users are much different. Most website visitors don’t mind scrolling in the slightest. This trend could be rising due to apps like Instagram, which actively encourage scrolling down the app. Combine this with the preference to access the web via mobile devices, and you’ve got a scrolling match made in heaven. As a result, this gives you more real estate to work with when designing the style and layout of your website. Instead of trying to cram everything into the space above the fold, you can utilize your entire screen. This allows you to create more logical and enticing pages that hook your visitor’s attention as they scroll further down your screen. In accordance with making sites more scrollable, you’ll also want to think about implementing thumb-friendly navigation. When people are using their mobile phones to navigate a website they take many different actions and interact with the website in a different manner. One of the easiest ways to ensure your site is in alignment with this growing trend is to include a hamburger navigation menu. This allows users to more easily select the page they want to visit. 8. Intentional Data Collection Most websites will collect some form of data. Today, with the recently introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the collection and storage of data have become even more important. This has led website owners to evaluate how they go about collecting data and being more intentional with the kind of data they’re collecting. For example, if you have an intake form on your website do you really need their location data or even their phone number? Or, maybe you currently integrate with Facebook as a login alternative. Although this saves you time, it might not lead to the best impression for your company. No matter if it’s a contact form, email signup form, or even having tracking cookies on your site, you’ll need to be very transparent about the data you’re collecting, why you’re collecting it, and what you’re doing with it. When thinking about any forms you have on your site think about what’s the minimum amount of necessary information you can collect. Sites that place an importance on user privacy will not only ensure their sites stay compliant with the latest privacy guidelines, but will also be the sites that create a strong and trusting visitor relationship. What These Trends Mean for Your Website By keeping up with the latest web design trends you can help predict where the online world is going. If your website is a crucial part of your business, then it’s important to stay up to date with what’s currently going on online. Today’s web users are savvier than ever, and spend more time online than ever before, with the advent of smartphones and the advancement of the mobile web. Spend some time analyzing the trends above to see how you can apply any of them to your website, or where you can enhance your existing design. The quickest way to lose your visitors’ trust is to have a website that looks old and out of date. That doesn’t mean you need to adopt every single trend above, but instead see how you can bring your website into the future and in tune with the kind of website your users expect to see. Hopefully, you have a better idea of the trends you’ll start to see across the web this year. Whether you’re going to undergo a redesign or not, these trends are important to think about now and into the future. Ready to put these trends in web design into action?

How to Install WordPress on VPS Hosting

Reseller Club Blog -

WordPress, as we’ve seen time and again, is one of the most preferred Content Management Systems with over 33% websites across the globe and WordPress Hosting as the preferred hosting. However, depending on your website’s needs and traffic, you may or may not be using WordPress Hosting. Out of the various hosting options available let us assume, you have opted for Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting and now wish to install WordPress. Sounds complex doesn’t it? Worry not, it isn’t! In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through how to install WordPress on VPS Hosting in simple steps. All you need to do is follow these steps and voila your WordPress is installed! For your benefit, I have divided the post into three sub-parts: Placing the orders Installing WordPress on WHM (with a Control Panel) Installing WordPress without a Control Panel So without further ado, let us begin. Placing the orders The first step before you can install WordPress on VPS is to purchase the domain name and VPS Hosting. We will be purchasing the above from our ResellerClub Control Panel. Step 1: Login to our Control Panel, using your Reseller ID and Password. Go to the top right side of the dashboard and click on Buy to purchase orders. Step 2: To purchase a domain, go to ‘Select Product’ and select Domain Registration from the drop-down list Enter the domain you want and check if it is available. You can even add Privacy Protection at an added cost Step 3: Once you’ve purchased your domain name it is time for you to purchase your hosting. In the same ‘Select Product’ drop-down, select Linux KVM VPS Type the domain name you want to link the hosting with, as well as, all the product specification details as well Next, choose if you want any Add-ons, the control panels viz. cPanel and Plesk and, WHMCS Add-ons available with VPS Hosting. We have selected cPanel and WHMCS.Note: Should you not want any Add-ons, you can select None   Pay the amount and you have successfully purchased the order #01 Linux KVM VPS #02 Linux KVM VPS Step 4: Now that you’ve purchased your domain name and VPS Hosting, it automatically gets added to your control panel. To access the orders, go to the main dashboard and click on Products → List All Orders → Click on the order you want to access. Since we want to install WordPress on VPS Hosting, we have selected that order. After clicking on the order name, a new window opens where you can modify the order, as seen in the image below. Click on the ‘Admin Details’ tab and a new window opens. You can now access the Server Management Panel, WHMCS and cPanel. #image 07 As seen above, our orders have been purchased and we will now see how to install WordPress. Since at the time of purchase we had purchased cPanel as the preferred control panel Add-on, we will first see how to install WordPress on WHM (the backend of cPanel). However, if you have not installed a control panel, then we will even show you how to go about installing WordPress without it. Installing WordPress on WHM (with a Control Panel) Since we purchased the cPanel Add-on we can now access WHM. Softaculous is an Auto Installer that can be integrated easily into control panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin etc. It is one of the easiest ways to install applications like WordPress, Drupal, phpBB, etc. with a single click. However, Softaculous is not available in WHM and needs to be installed. For installing Softaculous, we need to install it via remote access. If you are using a Linux based Operating System, then you can run the installation commands directly on your terminal. However, users who use Windows Operating System need to use an emulator. Therefore, to install WordPress you need to: Installing an emulator (Windows)/ Open terminal (Linux) Installing Softaculous on WHM via emulator/terminal Installing WordPress using Softaculous For the benefit of Windows Operating System users, we have listed the below steps to install an emulator called Putty. Putty is an open-source terminal and network file transfer application for Windows and can run the same commands you would run on a Linux based OS. 1. Installing Putty on your Windows machine Go to the official website of Putty Click on ‘Download Putty’ You will be redirected to a new page, where you need to download the package based on your Windows version (32-bit or 64-bit) After the .exe file is downloaded, click on Run and install it by clicking on ‘Next’ Once Putty is successfully installed, open the application like you would open any other  In the text box ‘Host Name or IP address’ type the IP address of your Control Panel i.e the URL in ‘#Image 07’ and click on Open The following window opens. Here enter the password and you are ready to install Softaculous on WHM 2. Install Softaculous on WHM via emulator (Putty) Now that we’ve successfully installed Putty and logged into our Control Panel remotely, let us now install Softaculous. Note: If you are using Linux, type these commands in the terminal directly after logging into cPanel. After logging into your control panel, type in the following command to fetch the installation files of Softaculous < wget -N> After the files are fetched type in the command to change the access permission <chmod 755> Now install the files by typing this command <./> and press Enter After the previous step, it will take a few minutes to install all the scripts. Wait till you get the message ‘Congratulations, Softaculous was installed successfully’ on the terminal screen To check if Softaculous is installed on the control panel: Log In to WHM Select Plugins on the Home Page (Add-Ons on older versions than 11) Softaculous – Instant Installs The following window opens if Softaculous is installed 3. Install WordPress using Softaculous Several scripts come pre-installed with Softaculous. Having successfully installed Softaculous, you can now install WordPress on VPS via cPanel. Go to the Softaculous dashboard and search ‘WordPress’. Once you find the icon (i.e the script) double click on it, this opens a new window Here, on the ‘Install’ tab enter the necessary details viz. the domain name you want to install the software on, protocol, language, etc. and click on the ‘Install’ button at the bottom of the page Once your software is installed, you would get the following message as seen in the image below on your screen. You can now customize your WordPress site as per your needs This was one way to set up WordPress on VPS, using the control panel. Let us now look at the manual way to install WordPress on VPS server if you don’t have a control panel. Installing WordPress Manually Without a Control Panel WordPress can be installed on your VPS in 4 simple steps and although this process is simple, it requires a technical background. So here we go: Create a Database and a User We would once again be using either the Putty (if Windows) or Terminal if using Linux OS to access the hosting server via SSH. After logging into your root account type in the following commands to create a databasemysql → Enter the database name create database database_name; → Replace your database name, username, and password in the command grant all privileges on database_name.* to database_user@localhost identified by ‘database_user_password’; The image below is a representation of the commands where:wp_database == database name wp_user == database user Passw0rd == password of the user Download WordPress WordPress can be downloaded in 2 ways viz: Upload the WordPress contents to your server via FTP or Directly download the files on the server via SSH We would be downloading WordPress viz the second method, using SSH. Step 1: Go to the website root directory of your domain For understanding purpose, let us consider your directory is /home/demobigo/public_html Type the following command: cd /home/demobigo/public_html Step 2: To download WordPress to your server, type in the following commands Fetch the file: wget Extract: tar -xzf latest.tar.gz Step 3: WordPress will be extracted in a folder called WordPress inside /home/demobigo/public_html i.e /home/demobigo/public_html/ WordPress You can install WordPress on the main domain you purchased ( or even in a sub-directory ( If you want to install it on the main domain then move the files by running the following commands: → cd /home/demobigo/public_html/WordPress → mv ./* /home/demobigo/public_html/ where cd == change directory and mv == move Note: If you’d like it on a sub-directory eg: blog, just create a folder named blog and move the files to it. Edit the WordPress Configuration file To edit the configuration file you can either create and edit the wp-config.php file manually, or let WordPress do the configuration itself when you run the installation script.If you wish to configure it yourself then run the following commands: Rename the file wp-config-sample.php as wp-config.phpTo do this, run this command in the directory you installed WordPress: → mv wp-config-sample.php wp-config.php Open the file wp-config.php using the editor (vi editor in Linux and vim editor in Windows)To do this, run this command in the directory where you installed WordPress: → # vi wp-config.php Edit the following fields by replacing the actual database details: DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD and DB_HOST as shown in the example above. Run the Installation Script If you have installed WordPress on the main domain, just visit: If you have installed WordPress in a folder say blog, just visit: Fill the Site Title, Username, password & other fields and click Install WordPress. Note: If WordPress is not able to identify your custom saved wp-config.php file, it will tell you to create and edit the file itself. You can just enter the database details that you’d like for the WordPress database and it will store the details in a new wp-config.php file. Conclusion With this, we come to an end of our tutorial on, ‘how to install WordPress on VPS’. Installing WordPress on VPS can seem to be complicated, however, if the steps are carried out in a simplified manner then the process is easy. Also, if you are using our Dedicated Hosting then the steps to install WordPress remain the same, as the working of VPS is similar to that of Dedicated Server. Hope this tutorial was helpful to you.

WordPress 5.2 Beta 1 News -

WordPress 5.2 Beta 1 is now available! This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site to play with the new version. You can test the WordPress 5.2 Beta two ways: Try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (choose the “bleeding edge nightlies” option)Or download the beta here (zip). WordPress 5.2 is slated for release on April 30, and we need your help to get there. Here are some of the big items to test so we can find as many bugs as possible in the coming weeks. Block Editor The block editor has received significant performance improvements since WordPress 5.1, shaving 35% off the load time for massive posts, and cutting the keypress time (how responsive it feels when you’re typing) in half! Accessibility continues to improve, too. The block editor now supports your browser’s reduced motion settings. The post URL slug has better labelling and help text. The focus styling for keyboard navigating through landmarks is clearer and more consistent. There are a variety of new speak messages, and existing messages have been tweaked for more useful screen-reader behaviour. We’ve added several new blocks: An RSS blockAn Amazon Kindle embed blockA Search blockA Calendar blockA Tag Cloud block To help you keep track of these blocks, and only show the ones you need, there’s a new block management tool to switch blocks on and off. Block Management Modal We’re constantly working on existing blocks, too. There are hundreds of bug fixes and improvements in the block editor, you can read more about them in the Gutenberg plugin releases: 4.9, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3.
