Whilst in the past we have always tended to stray away from the idea of a two tier membership system. We have recently looked into developing a system that allows added features and permissions. We continue to host tens of thousands of accounts and provide free, unrestricted access to many free users. To ensure these free accounts remain available to all for the long term future, we have had to make changes to quota limits to free accounts at thexyz.net as well as other services below to lower the amount of spam messages.

Spam protecting our status net server


It is a common problem with statusnet and our server running thexyz.info has not been exempt from these issues. In the summer of 2011 we executed a major clean of spam accounts and restricted registrations temporarily for new free accounts. This was done after a major DDos took out thexyz.info server for a number of days. The server is hosted on a third party server and we have since made adjustments to help prevent any prolonged downtime.

Keyword Reports


With Premium Membership you will receive a highly detailed statistical report to anaylize your main search phrases. This is will show you where you are ranking for the major search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, Alta Vista, Alexa etc. The report is generated usually twice a month and is delivered to you via email with a PDF attachment or display as a webpage in a secure password protected area. All historical data is collected and stored to display historical records and show you how keywords perform during different times of year and so on.

Thexyz Email Services


Thexyz Server and Thexyz Hosting offer two types of email configurations and depending of the type of account and server setup the email delivery system will vary. Some clients have in the past expressed in exchange email services, guaranteed email delivery and full archiving of all incoming and outgoing email. We have reduced the storage size of our free email account included with all domains registered through Thexyz Hosting from 2000MB to 100MB and offer paid email subscriptions to ensure the highest level of service. For this we have setup a new dedicated server for email run through our file storage domain at thexyz.net. We have also become an authorized reseller for Microsoft Email Exchange services.

Increased Forum Permissions


You will really be able to make the most of Thexyz Forum with full access to all forums including restricted areas only for premium members. Here you can expect to find some free downloads of scripts and templates as well as exclusive discount coupons to sites like ScriptDorks and Thexyz Network.

Traffic Analysis and XML API


With Premium Membership you will automatically be opted in to use our API details for getting ads in XML format. You may use the API to get the ads in XML format and display them in any style. You will also gain access to increased stats for monitoring your clicks and impressions statistics of your XML api implementation.

There are a number of way webmasters monetize a website. As long as you are serving a niche audience or have reasonable amounts of traffic coming to your website then you should be able to generate a recurring source of revenue from your site.

What if my website is new?


It's not a problem if you are just starting out, as long as you follow some important steps. In the long run you want to generate more traffic to ensure when you do find some advertisers, you are going to earn as much as possible.

How can I increase my traffic?


There are a number of ways to do this and is a question often asked. The first thing to do is make sure your content and title tags are relevant and suiting the topic of your site. Sometimes it can be hard to criticize your own work so it is a good idea to ask the advice of a friend or colleague. From getting some honest advice from others and taking a step back to look at your site, you should gain more direction into the content you need to produce and how it going to be organized.

Organize content for yourself and the bots


By creating categories for your topics or posts before you start indexing them, you are making it easier for your users, search engine bots and yourself. You can see I have done this on this blog and on our forum. I find it also helps me refer to support related documents for quick and easy reference at a later date.

Get posting and regularly


Posting regular unique content to your site is winning half the battle with search bots. They love to feed on fresh and unique new content so be sure to feed and they will in turn, return the favour by indexing your new pages in search engine results.

Get the right links back to your site


Relevant back links on well ranked pages to yours do seem to have an effect on how well your page is ranked. Depending on what category your site falls into, will vary the route you take for a link building campaign.

Take a look at some paid advertising


There are some really good niche placements available for your site. You can have a look in forums like digital point for some targeted placements.

Make use of multiple platforms for revenue


Shareasale.com

Google Adsense

Many customers our Virtual Private Servers are not aware that backing the files, databases and email accounts is the responsibility of the administrator of the server. This means that should something devastating happen to your server environment, all your files could be lost. In some cases the previous backups can date months back and hence lose months of information.

Do you backup your secure files?

While backing up is an essential part of securing any organizations online presence, many fail to see the importance until it is too late.

To help ensure our customers are protected we have introduced an additional subscription to your monthly VPS package. It is an optional add-on and can be purchased through the Hespia Control Panel by logging in to your server at Thexyz.

A weekly backup costs as little as $6.99 per month and full managed services start at just $16.99 per month.

sFTP stands for Secure File Transfer Protocol and means that files will be transferred via an encrypted connection to the server.If a customer wishes to use sFTP, he must have active SSH access – it’s an upgrade feature for most of the shared web hosting plans.


The required port for secure file transfers is 2222, instead of the standard FTP port – 21. The sFTP password is the same as the SSH password.

If a customer experiences problems with his sFTP connection, our support staff will be happy to assist you.
