The server migration will be carried out till the end of January 31st, 2013, as we are currently working on a schedule to list all servers and their migration dates.

There is a multitude of website promotion techniques that you can implement to better market your website offerings and increase your traffic among potential and existing customers. You may decide to adopt any of these promotion strategies alone, but for maximum results we highly recommend that you make use of all of them. Some can work better than others, but if developed correctly, all of them will produce results that will be well worth the effort.




Submit your website to major web directories


Web directories are websites that list submitted website URLs by category. The links submitted to a web directory are gathered, reviewed and arranged in a particular order by people. Dmoz and Yahoo are considered as the best and most popular human-edited directories on the World Wide Web, and therefore they rank as the first most widely trusted and relied on traffic sources. Since these directories receive thousands of submissions every day, it's very often quite difficult to get into their listings. It may take several months until your website is reviewed and listed.



You can choose to use the paid listing option Yahoo offers for faster inclusion. There are also many other free directories, and we have compiled quite an extensive list on our forum here. It has been shown that it's much better if you post your website's link into as many free directories as possible.

Use appropriate keywords in your meta tags


People search the Internet by searching for information, to make this more relevant, meta and alt tags help search engines to index content. To start their search they usually use words that explain best their search phrase. You should think about what people that want to find your content will search for when creating your tags.

Make link exchange deals with similar websites


Reciprocal links are one of the most common and effective forms of website promotion. Before making a link exchange deal, you should first find a good partnering website. A good partner has website content that attracts visitors that will also have an interest in your website.

After you've found a suitable link exchange partner, you need to contact the webmasters of the website, informing them that you run a site with similar topics, and that you are interested in making a link exchanging deal between the two websites. You should first post the link of the partner's website onto your web store, then inform the other website of the posting and send them the URL to review their promotion. Finally - simply ask them to return the favour by linking back to your website. If you never get a reply of this particular website, or your proposal gets a refusal, do not give up this promotion method, but invest more search efforts to find the right partner.

Post in Blogs/Forums


Find popular blogs or forums related to your  business area and post relevant comments on as many of them as you can. Remember that quality blogs/forums do not tolerate spamming activities, so make sure you are bringing plenty of value to each before posting any links.

Add a comment on articles


Search for highly ranked article submission websites and post informative reviews about your web hosting company. Try to find also some good ranked articles and see if they will allow you to share your views on the topics discussed and send comments on the article. If you are able to, you will get free back links from them, since most will ask for your website's URL when you are submitting the contents of your posting. Once your comments appear on the articles website, your URL will automatically be posted and start to lead readers to your web store.

Write newsletter articles


Writing a catchy newsletter directing your followers, fans, friends or subscribers to your latest news post is a great way to direct many visitors to your site in a short amount of time.

Start using email signatures


Using an email signature is free and easy to setup. You can set this on your email client, webmail and smart phone, so regardless of where you send an email from, the signature is always the same.

Banner Advertising


It works, but only when well figured out! Banner ads are usually annoying to the visitors of any website. A well placed banner ad, however, on a website which has content relevant with your  business area, is much more likely to attract visitors to your website than a banner ad placed at random.


The main purpose of your banner is to get people to click on it, so enticing users with free deals and coupons codes is a great way to start. Your message should be very brief and right to the point. You will have no more than a sentence to persuade the viewer to visit your website. Make sure to use immediately engaging phrases to intrigue the viewer to quickly visit your website. Use a noticeable font size to attract their attention and clarify a valuable reason why the viewer should click on your banner.

Start a YouTube channel


Our YouTube channel is a great example of a successful channel that not only provides a valuable resource to our clients, but also attracts new customers to our platform. For our channel we have created mostly tutorial videos but you could create interviews by getting a friend to ask you questions about your product or service.

Submit a sitemap.xml


A sitemap.xml file and robots.txt are standard ways to tell search which content to index and which to not. There are many resources online that will be able to help you create these files, otherwise we recommend using the services of TweakDorks to have it done for you.
We wish you all the best in your efforts and remember that promoting your site may take a considerable period of time until you achieve satisfactory results, however do your best, and if you need further consultation, do not hesitate to contact the knowledgeable support team at Thexyz who will be more than happy to assist you.

Our new venture has been born through a joint partnership with ScriptDorks which Thexyz acquired last year. "TweakDorks", will be the service division of both ScriptDorks and Thexyz for not only our in house developed software but third party web software too.


 

Through providing support the thousands of website owners each month, we have grown to understand the types of services that website owners require. We have also learnt a lot about the bad experiences that they have through using third party web developers. We have worked very hard on building relationships with our partners recently and this includes a large network of trusted developers. Through this network we are able to provide efficient, tailored web services to suit all kinds of users.

 

The process takes away deceptive quotes by breaking down each desired website change into a series of 'tweaks.' This makes it easier for the client to pick and choose the adjustments that they desire to have done.

 
By charging $25 per tweak, we hope to not only make the web design industry more efficient, but also more affordable.

 

Over the past few weeks we have launched our TweakDorks service in beta and received nothing but positive reviews from our clients. We continue to welcome your testimonials and any feedback you may to help us in providing the highest level of service we can.

Since more WordPress users are becoming victims of malicious hacks which is usually occurring to users using older versions of wordpress. It is becoming increasingly important to keep vulnerable themes/plugins installed up to date. As well as follow the steps in this guide to reduce the risk of you becoming the next victim.


User's are reminded to follow these instructions to maintain a secure WordPress install.


  1. Keep a regular backup

  2. Manually upgrade the WordPress version to the latest version.

  3. Remove any vulnerable themes and plugins that are out of date or no longer used, also update them too.

  4. Read the additional security measures listed below and on our forum.


The latest version of wordpress available is 3.4.1. However you cannot upgrade  to the latest version via your server control panel. So if you are using older versions of wordpress, we strongly recommend you upgrade to the latest wordpress version. The following article will help you to upgrade the wordpress version: http://codex.wordpress.org/Updating_WordPress you can also watch this video.
Remember to keep a full website backup before attempting to update your wordpress software.

In addition to the above, please note the following security measures to prevent your wordpress sites from hacks.

Issue 1:


Did your site get hacked even after upgrading the wordpress version to latest version 3.4.1 and removing vulnerable themes/plugins?

Solution


We found sites being hacked by editing the wordpress theme-editor. To fix this, you can disable the wordpress theme editing option by inserting the following line in wp-config.php file.
define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT',true);

Issue 2:


Site was hacked due to using an outdated version.

Solution


It is very important for you to keep your WordPress software up to date, to see how Thexyz can help assist you with this please see the bottom of this post.

Issue 3:


Alternately, sites can also get hacked if your WordPress admin login credentials are compromised.

Solution


In this case, if the hackers are still logged in to your blog then resetting your wordpress admin password won't help you. This is because their cookies are still valid. To disable them, you have to create a new set of secret keys. Please Visit the WordPress key generator https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ to obtain a new random set of keys so that you can overwrite the values in your wp-config.php file with the new ones: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Security_Keys

You can also do wordpress hardening by referring to this link: http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress

What does Thexyz do to help?


Whilst we do ensure our own systems are secure, we have seen sites become infected through the use of third party applications and plugins.  There isn't any additional precaution or safely measure that we can place on the server-side to fix this, and we do what we can to support and educate customers on any potential threats. We do also offer an additional weekly backup services for backing up your server automatically for just $6.99 per month. This way you just have to take care of the updates yourself.

What if I cannot manage WordPress updates myself?


If you can manage to check email then, you can update your wordress. We offer video tutorials from backing up to upgrading on our Youtube Channel.

Can you do this for me?


At Thexyz we can take care of keeping your server secure, server OS up to date, automatically backed up with a managed service, but this does not include keeping the third party applications you choose to install on the server up to date. We have now developed TweakDorks that can take care of the process for you for the reasonable price of $25: http://www.tweakdorks.com/shop/wordpress-updates/

Now that ongoing development of the Mozilla Thunderbird has come to end with the reason being it is no longer a priority, the email client is about to become more open to security vulnerabilities. Making this a great time to change your email client to one that can offer the necessary peace of mind that ongoing development delivers. Even if you are quite satisfied with Outlook or Mac Mail, it is worth taking a look at these alternatives.


Seamonkey - http://www.seamonkey-project.org/


Seamonkey is a Mozilla based email client that also provides a number of other web applications. Supports Mac, Windows and Linux.

Eudora OSE - https://wiki.mozilla.org/Eudora_OSE


EudoraOSE is a free-to-use derivative of the Eudora mail client that uses Thunderbird code with additional code, features and UI elements from Qualcomm's Eudora client. Supports Mac, Windows and Linux.

Zimbra - http://www.zimbra.com/


A great thing about Zimbra is the fact that it can integrate social media into your email client. It also has some really nice features that seem to set it apart from the rest in more ways than one. Supports Mac, Windows and Linux.


eM Client - http://www.emclient.com/


eM Client is a lot more similar to Thunderbird than Sea Monkey. As well as support for syncing multiple accounts, it offers calendar, tasks and widget tools, and has a way to link into instant messaging. This one only work with Windows.

Modification to WHOIS Information


As part of the efforts involved in restructuring the company, we have added another white-labeled Registrar, ClickRegistrar, to conduct business. We will be temporarily Registering, Renewing and Transferring Domains for some TLDs through ClickRegistar from 11th July, 2012.


Impact:


For some TLDs, the WHOIS information for Domains that are Registered, Renewed or Transferred-In after 11th July, will have ClickRegistrar as the Registrar on Record. All existing Domains will continue to have PublicDomainRegistry as the Registrar on Record.


Please Note: There will be no changes to the prices you will be charged or the Registration, Renewal or Transfer process.


In the last couple of months we have been working on cementing a perfect structure for accounting, reporting and legal processes that would allow us to continue offering you the quality of products and services at the prices that we have been offering, for years to come.


We recognize that there might be a certain amount of confusion created by these changes but we want to assure you that these changes are absolutely necessary and are being carried out keeping your best interests in mind.


Revamping System-Generated Mails


In order to streamline a better checkout experience for you, we will soon be revamping our current system-generated emails.


Currently, the purchase process generates three mails in succession: Details of 'Pending Invoice', 'Invoice Paid' and 'Purchase Completed'. To ensure that your Customers are never overwhelmed with too many emails, we will be discontinuing the ‘Invoice Paid’ Email.


The ‘Purchase Completed’ mail will support your Customer’s invoice that has been paid for.


We will be modifying the content of the ‘Details of Pending Invoice’ mail to explicitly mention that the invoice needs to be paid for to activate the order.


Domain Name Suggestion Tool and free domain tools


Unlike other domain registries, we offer the most free services with our domains and include free privacy protection with each and every order. This helps to maintain your privacy and prevent email spam by masking your public WHOIS details. Our new and improved Domain Name Suggestion Tool will help you find and register good domain names. Enter the word / phrase / domain name that you are looking for in the search box and click on the "Suggest" button to generate a list of suggested domain names that are available to register.


Reseller Hosting Windows


After three months of rigorous beta testing with over to 60 Resellers, we are excited to announce that Reseller Hosting on Windows servers with Plesk and WHMCS will be going Live on Wednesday, 11th July 2012. Stay tuned for more information.

With Apple still struggling to cope with the Flashback Trojan, Mac users are now realizing their need for antivirus protection. The latest avast! Free Antivirus for Mac (free) boasts a new GUI and automatic updates. It scans for malware on demand and in real time, and offers the bonus of Web reputation reporting.


Real-Time Protection

Real-time protection comes in the form of three shields. The Web Shield ensures that you don't accidentally download malicious files. File System Shield checks all files on access. A malicious file that tries to launch will get quarantined instead. The Mail Shield checks your email communications and quashes any malicious attachments.


You can view the level of activity for each shield in a real-time graph, or dig into reports on exactly what actions have been taken. Popup notifications keep you apprised of the program's protective activities in real time. You can control popups to just show critical messages and set how long they stay on your screen.


Web Reputation

The web reputation browser button displays a red or green icon for sites with an overall bad or good reputation.


Reputation information comes from users like you. When you click the button you can rate the site on a five-step scale from bad to good and also tag it with any of five good and five bad attributes. The browser button's icon also shows whether the site has a low, medium, or high number of votes.


Avast! Free Antivirus for Mac is available as a free download at: http://ptoone.thexyz.net/item/36ab9f5b98ce4f4bbcd55d3ad29d3dcc
