ASP.NET 2.0 did develop the web applications much easier with such less code! ASP.NET is a set of technologies in the Microsoft .NET Framework for building Web applications and Web(XML). ASP.NET pages execute on the server side and generate markup such as HTML or XML that is sent to a browser. Besides, ASP.NET supports multiple .NET languages including built-in support for VB.NET, C#, and JScript.NET, since if we are working with ASP.NET we will choose which the language it is. Hence, the ASP web hosting that come with the 2.0 feature might be easier for the .net sites for all.

Tutorial: Solution for changing the New Domain Name (modifying the .htaccess file)

Well this tutorial is on overcoming the problem when you do change your domain name to the new one. Refer to my last article. Let us, straight to the point. I consider in this case your old web site did have the .htaccess file in the web directory or the web host allows you to put the .htaccess file. There is one thing that should be considered; generally the web hosting that use the Apache server will have that facility.

Take this code for the example in the .htaccess.

When you do that actually you tell the server to ask the browser to load the new site when the visitors are in the old domain name. So, how about the searching engine? The searching engine also follow the link to index the new URL, and transfer the page rank of your old page to the new one.

But what if we don’t have the .htaccess file or the web host doesn’t allow doing so? Well, you could set up an automatically redirecting page by inserting the following META tag in the "head" section of your web page. Keep it all in one line in your page.

Well, I hope this tutorial will help you a lot out there!! Adios!!!

Switch to The New Domain Name Issue

Since, I did cover so much on the basic thing about web hosting, so I got no such idea on the basic topic that I should discuss about. Suddenly, I thought about an issue on changing the url. For an example a company of beer maker, the Bristol ( wants to change the domain name to be (

In this article I want to discuss on the pro and cons of changing the domain name. Well, I think I should point on the pro of changing the domain name first. In this case I do consider on this beer maker company. The most obvious pro on changing the domain name for them here is they are making their domain name (url) to be more SEO friendly by emphasizing the word of beer(make the beer as their keyword) in their domain name.

For the SEO friendly aspect that’s good but what will be happened to user that used to be accessed the web via They couldn’t reach the site by using the new domain name. That’s the most obvious cons of having the new domain name cuz for sure you’ll lose ton of your existing visitors.

Is it means I mustn’t change the domain name at all? Nah, it’s not like that. You have 2 solutions on that! The first one is making a page that could automatically forward to your new site (redirection page from the old domain name) and the second one is put a link in your old web site to let the users go to the new url.

But there is a problem on those both alternative ways. For the first solution, the problem that will be appeared is you might be lost the search engine listing. Generally (not all the searching engine did), the searching engines hate the redirection page. The old one will be deleted if they see the redirection page (when the spider returns to check your site).That’s mean you have to start the search engine listing from zero. Is that what you wish at?

The problem that been appeared for the second approach is when the visitors come to the old site, they just could see the new domain name asking you to go there. There is a possibility that the visitors feel that lazy to go to the new url. So, by using the second approach you still risk yourself to loose the visitors too on your new sites.

“Well, based on the discussion above, the new url just brings more harm to the new site”. That’s not true; you still could do something to overcome the problem! The best solution is by modifying your .htacess file. But I will not cover it here cuz it’s too long to be in this article and this might be made you bored to read the whole article. I’ll continue with it after this. Adios!

Part 2 : What should you when you change the web host?

This is the part 2 of the web hosting tutorial. I hope you guys out there enjoy the tutorial!

3. Update your DNS of the domain name

I do consider that you’ve been doing those 2 steps above. Hence, this is the time on working in the technical things. Since you are using the new web hosting so, you need to know on what is the DNS of the new web hosting. Copy the DNS number.

Login to your domain name account. Go to ‘manage your DNS’ part. Paste the new web DNS number in that section. Choose to save and you have to wait for some couple of hours before the DNS propagates (depend on the web hosting provider, some of them take 2 days long.

4. Add your domain name to the new web hosting.

Login to your helm or cpanel account. Choose on add on domain. If your DNS did propagates well, there is no problem in adding the domain name in the account. But, if it doesn’t an error message will be appeared on telling the DNS number is not match. That’s mean; you need to wait some other couple of hours.

5. Upload the files

If every thing is completely perfect, you could start to host your files to your new web hosting. Again, use the FTP software to make the uploading files. After you do this step, upload the database that you had save from the old server. Just use your .txt database file and it’s done!

Tutorial Part 1 : What should you when you change the web host?

mmm…for these few days, I’ve been thinking hardly on the topic or the web hosting tutorial that should I bring into this web hosting blog. After thinking in some while and being in some forum, reviewing their problems suddenly I got an idea. Thus, I’m going to come out with tutorial on the few actions that we should take if we are changing the new web hosting account. Remember, in this article I don’t mean we are changing our web site’s domain name. We only move to the new web hosting. It’s like we are moving to the new house. (I did explain on this in the last article)

  1. Copy all the files to your machine

Since you are moving the sites to the new web host, so the very first thing that you should do is copy all the files from the web hosting. What I mean is if you do have the web site or a system, copy all of them from the server. You could do that by using any FTP software. If you are kind of me (I save those files in my local machine all the time) so you could skip this stage.

2. Copy your database

This is one of the most crucial parts. You really need to copy the database in order to make sure when you are launching the web site in the new web hosting there are no such most update listing, info or the new members of the site been dropped since there is no such backup for the database.

Some of my friends ask me on how to copy the database from the server. They told me they hate to build up the database again. LOL!! It’s easy, if you are using the mySql just go to the list of the databse in your web server and choose which one of them. Then, you just dump the mySQL and save it as .txt. The size is extremely light but yet it’s really powerful though.

Since there are 5 steps to be included in the tutorial so I make a decision to split up the tutorial to be in part1 and part2. Hope you guys enjoy this article and may it could help you in your web hosting management. Have a nice day!!

What is The Meaning by Changing Your Web Hosting

Some of us might be in the first time of changing the new web hosting. We may change the web hosting plan or even change it to new web hosting provider. When We talk about changing the web hosting that's mean we are changing the web server only. Some of us may think "when we are changing the web hosting that's mean we are changing the url (http:// too".

That's not true. Some of my friends simply confuse by this issue too. So, I wish to make the simplest example in order to make all of us understand clearly on changing the web hosting matter. As an example we live in the house with our friends : ellen, sally and sarah. Due to some reasons all of us are moving to the new house.

So, what could we figure it out is, the house is the web hosting. Thus, the new house is the new web hosting. The domain names are me, myself, ellen,sally and sarah. In this matter, all of us being together move in the new house. We are not changing our name, right?? Ha ha ha ha...that's the best example that I could think for the matter.

I hope this article do help a lot of people that wonder on what is all about on changing the web server. I'll come tomorrow with tips on changing the web server. Adios!!

Virtual Private Server

When we are about to choose the web hosting service, usually we will see the list of the features and some many briefing there. Today I'll bring the topic for Virtual Private Server. The web hosting provider used to advertise "Get your virtual private server now!" and gave such bundle of advantages by using them.

Before you choose the service let me give you the brief on what the virtual private server is.

A virtual private server (VPS, is also known as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of partitioning a physical server computer into multiple servers that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each server can be independently rebooted.

Well, so far we do know what the virtual private server is. But, what the exact advantage on us if we are using the VPS feature as our web hosting account?

Let us take a look on the usage of the VPS. The virtual private server bring the gap between the shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting service, giving the independence for the customer for their software terms but also give the less cost compare the physical private server.

The VPS is not about cutting the cost only to the customers but they give the customers have the superuser-level access to the operating system, and could install any software that could run within the OS. For the beginner, I think you should consider on this part since sometimes our internet connection gives some ban for the web hosting account. Thus, if we do have this feature we could install some software to pass by the ban.

I hope this article could help you a lot out there. Have a nice day!!
