301 vs. 302 Redirects for SEO: Which Should You Use?

Redirects are simple. If you’re moving content to a new location permanently, use a 301 redirect. If you’re moving it temporarily, use a 302 redirect.

But you might be wondering, why does this even matter? After all, users can’t tell the difference between 301s and 302s. Both are identical in their functionality.

The answer is simple: Search engines view 301 redirects and 302 redirects differently. And choosing the wrong one can cause SEO issues that often go unnoticed for months or even years.

Here are a few common use cases:

  • You permanently change the URL of a web page.
  • You permanently migrate to a new domain.
  • You switch from HTTP to HTTPS.
  • You want to fix non-www/www duplicate content issues.
  • You permanently merge two or more pages or websites.
  • You permanently change the URL structure of your website.

Use cases for 302 redirects are few and far between, but there are some:

  • You want to redirect users to the right version of the site for them (based on location/language).
  • You want to A/B split-test the functionality or design of a web page.
  • You want to get feedback about a new page without affecting rankings for the old one.
  • You’re running a promotion and want to temporarily redirect visitors to a sales page.

There are undoubtedly other use cases, but they tend to be very specific and individual. The golden rule is that you should only use 302 redirects if you plan to bring back the old page after a short period.

You can create 301 and 302 redirects in several ways, but the most common method is to edit a website’s .htaccess file. You’ll find this file in your website’s root directory.

1 root directory htaccess

SIDENOTE.

If you don’t see this file in your site’s root directory, either your server isn’t running on Apache or you don’t have this file. You can check the kind of server you’re running with this tool. If it’s Apache, the solution is to create a .htaccess file using Notepad or TextEdit and upload it to your root server.

If you’re using WordPress, a less daunting option is to use a free SEO plugin to create redirects. RankMath has this functionality built-in, but this plugin will also do the job.

How to create a 301 redirect

If you want to create a 301 redirect from one URL to another, add this to your .htaccess file:

Redirect 301 /old-page.html /new-page.html 

You can also do this using RankMath or the Redirections plugin. Just choose the type of redirect you want, then add your source and destination URLs.

If you’re looking to redirect the entire website, add this to your .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^oldsite.com [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.oldsite.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://newsite.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]

Just know that you’ll need to keep your old hosting active to redirect your site with .htaccess, which can be expensive. So it’s usually better to redirect through DNS. Most registrars allow you to select either a 301 or 302 redirect for this. If you’re using Google Domains, just hit Website > Forward domain, then enter the new domain and choose “Permanent redirect.”

How to create a 302 redirect

If you want to create a 302 redirect from one URL to another, add this to your .htaccess file:

Redirect 302 /old-page.html /new-page.html 

You can also do this with RankMath or the Redirections plugin in WordPress:

4 302 rankmath

If you’re looking to redirect the entire website, use this code:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^oldsite.com [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.oldsite.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://newsite.com/$1 [L,R=302,NC]

Just know that you probably won’t want to use a 302 to redirect one site to another. Most domain changes are permanent, so you’ll want to use a 301. It’s the same story for redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, or from non-www to www (and vice-versa).

As the functionality of 301 and 302 redirects are identical to the end-user, choosing which one to use comes mostly down to how Google treats them. And there are two things we need to talk about here:

  1. Indexation
  2. Link signals

Indexation

When one URL redirects to another, Google keeps only one of those URLs indexed.

For 301 redirects…

… that will be the ‘new’ URL. For example, if you create a 301 redirect from old-page.html to new-page.html, Google will index new-page.html and de-index old-page.html. That’s because the 301 redirect tells Google that this is a permanent move, so there’s no point keeping the old URL indexed.

People sometimes get confused about this because after creating a 301 redirect, the old URL can still show up for a while in Google when using site: searches.

For example, Moz changed and redirected their domain from seomoz.org to moz.com many years ago, but seomoz.org still shows up in Google.

5 301 site search

The reason for this is that, as Patrick recently explained, site: searches don’t tell you if a URL is indexed. For that, you need to use either the URL Inspection tool or Coverage report in Google Search Console.

For 302 redirects…

… the URL that Google indexes will usually be the original one. However, because Google knows people often mistakenly use 302s for permanent redirects, they actually assess each 302 redirect individually to try to determine what you really meant.

Here’s what Google’s John Mueller said:

When we recognize a redirect and we see it’s a 302, we assume it is a temporary redirect first and we assume you want the initial URL indexed, not the redirected target. […] However, when we recognize it is actually more like a permanent redirect and the 302 is maybe something that you accidentally set up, then we do treat that as a 301. And we say, instead of indexing the redirected URL, we’ll index the redirection target instead.

John Mueller
John Mueller, Webmaster Trends Analyst Google

Nobody knows precisely how long a 302 redirect needs to be in place before Google begins treating it as a permanent redirect. Usually, it’s a few weeks to a few months, but it can be days, weeks, or months.

In some circumstances, Google even appears to treat 302s as 301s from the get-go.

For example, Patrick recently ran a small experiment where he implemented a 302 redirect from one established site to another. As soon as Google crawled the ‘old’ domain and saw the redirect, the ‘old’ domain disappeared from the search results in favor of the ‘new’ domain.

If you’re not sure how Google is treating your 302 redirects, here’s a quick ‘trick’:

Paste the redirecting URL into the Search Console’s URL Inspection tool. If it shows the “URL is not on Google” warning, Google must be treating the redirect as permanent (301). If it is on Google, then they’re treating it as temporary (302).

6 url is not on google

Just make sure to check the last crawl date when doing this. If this date comes after you implemented the redirect, request re-indexing and come back later.

SIDENOTE.

From our observations, Google is usually quicker to treat 302 redirects as permanent when redirecting to an ‘established’ page or site. That’s probably because the ‘new’ page or website has been around a while, so there’s a higher than average probability that you wanted to redirect the URL permanently.

Link signals

3XX redirects used to dilute PageRank, but that stopped in 2016.

Now, when you redirect one URL to another, link signals consolidate at one URL without dilution. However, the way this works is commonly misunderstood, as the type of redirect can impact where the signals consolidate.

For 301 redirects…

… link signals consolidate ‘forward’ to the ‘new’ URL.

For example, if old-page.html has ten backlinks, and you redirect (301) that to new-page.html, all link signals will consolidate at the new-page.html. In other words, Google should rank new-page.html as though it has ten links.

However, it’s not quite that simple because Google treats irrelevant redirects as soft 404s:

That isn’t a problem if you’re moving content to a new URL without drastically changing it. But if the redirect is irrelevant, as is the case when redirecting an old blog post to your homepage, links to the ‘old’ page probably won’t help the ‘new’ page rank. So the golden rule is to keep your redirects as relevant as possible.

If you’re curious how Google is treating one of your 301 redirects, try this:

Go to Search Console > Links > External Links.

7 top linked pages

Next, filter the report by “Target page,” and paste in the ‘new’ URL.

top target pages new url

Next, paste the ‘old’ URL into your Site Explorer and go to the Referring Domains report.

8 referring domains ahrefs

Finally, in GSC, filter the links by “Site,” and paste in referring domains one by one.

If you do this for several referring domains and get no matches in GSC, Google is likely treating the redirect as a soft 404, and not counting the backlinks towards the ‘new’ URL.

9 no results domain gsc

If there is a match, click on the site to see the actual links. You should see something like this:

10 target url if different

Notice that the “Target URL (if different)” column shows the ‘old’ redirected URL. This tells us that Google is counting links to the redirected URL towards the ‘new’ URL.

For 302 redirects…

… link signals usually consolidate ‘backward’ to the ‘old’ URL.

For example, if you redirect (302) old-page.html to new-page.html, and new-page.html has ten backlinks, all link signals will usually consolidate at old-page.html. In other words, Google should rank old-page.html as though it has ten links.

However, things aren’t quite that simple. It depends on how Google treats the 302 redirect.

If they’re treating it as a temporary redirect, link signals will indeed consolidate backward. That’s assuming the redirected page is the same as or similar to the ‘new’ page. If not, they may treat it as a soft 404.

If they’re treating it as a permanent redirect, link signals will consolidate forward.

You can check how Google is treating a redirect with the URL Inspection tool. Just paste in the ‘old’ redirected URL. If the “Google-selected canonical” shows “Inspected URL” (as is the case below), Google is treating the redirect as temporary. If not, it’s treating it as permanent.

Let’s say that you’ve made the common mistake of using 302 redirects for permanent moves. Do you need to spend precious time swapping them all to 301 redirects?

The answer depends on how Google currently treats those redirects.

If they’ve figured things out for themselves and are already treating the ‘accidental’ 302s as permanent moves, then changing them to 301s may not impact anything. If they haven’t yet figured things out, swapping the redirects from 302s to 301s is likely the best course of action.

You can use the URL Inspection tool in GSC to check how Google treats individual URLs, as shown in the previous section. However, that’s pretty time-consuming if you have a lot of redirects. A faster method is to first look for 302 redirects that get organic traffic. After all, that’s a telltale sign that Google is still treating the redirect as temporary.

You can do this in your Site Audit. Just crawl your site, then check the Redirects report for the “302 redirects” warning.

12 302 redirects site audit

If it’s there, click to view the affected URLs, and sort the report by “Organic traffic” from high to low.

13 302 redirects with traffic

If the user-declared and Google-declared canonicals match, Google is treating the 302 redirect as permanent. If they don’t, the redirected page is likely getting organic traffic because it’s still indexed and Google is treating it as temporary. That isn’t desirable if you used a 302 redirect by accident for a permanent move. Luckily, swapping the 302 redirect to a 301 should fix the issue.

Final thoughts

Redirects aren’t that complicated. If you’re moving content to a new location permanently, use a 301 redirect. If you’re moving it temporarily, use a 302 redirect.

That said, it might be reassuring to know that even if you do happen to use the wrong type of redirect, Google will likely figure out what you meant eventually. Does this always happen? Of course not. Google isn’t always smart enough to figure out what you meant without fail every time, so it’s best practice to use the correct type of redirect where possible.

PrestaShop is an open source e-commerce solution that is used freely by more than 120,000 online stores worldwide. It comes with over 275 features being carefully developed in order to increase business owners’ sales with minimal efforts required. All the software features are absolutely free.

PrestaShop is free software as it’s specified in the GNU General Public License and officially started in August 2007 for small and medium-size businesses. The software, based on the Smartly template engine, nowadays is used by more than 100,000 shops all over the world.

PrestaShop has a good record and even was awarded the title of the Best Open Source E-Commerce Application in the Packt 2010 Open Source Awards and the Best Open Source Business Application in the 2011 Open Source Awards.

It supports various payment systems such as PayPal, Google Checkout, Payments Pro via API, Authorize.net and Skrill. It is used on Apache web server 1.3 or later, with PHP 5 or later and MySQL 5 running on it.

About 41 languages are available to different degrees, but only English and French have full support in all the versions. In the admin panel AJAX is used extensively in the software. Module blocks can be added easily to the online store to supply with extra functionality.

Think of managing a dynamic product list at the PrestaShop back-office: administrative interface helps you manage with one-click most complex inventory updates. PrestaShop has a one-page checkout, provides customers with a great number of options to view the chosen products, reliable shipping options along with control logistics ( fees, shipping restrictions, weight and many more) and the ability to attach custom messages. So you can see that PrestaShop will do its best to simplify and make more comfortable customers’ work. When speaking about defying taxes according to customer’s localization, PrestaShop has an advanced tracking system as well as customizable exchange rates. The customers can also choose the preferred currency.

What are the new features in PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 release?

Fuzzy search

One of the members of the large PrestaShop community, Lathanao, together with the core development team has built an advanced mechanism for search called “Fuzzy search”. It gives online store owners an opportunity to improve website navigation and consequently user experience.

Fuzzy search implements the Levenshtein algorithm in the front office to allow error inputs or misspellings. Basically, this algorithm compares the differences between relevant strings and sorts them by distance (where the difference equals distance). It means that when a user makes a misspelling when searching for an item, approximate string matching leaves the system fewer words to consider. It puts less pressure on a server and makes the results load faster.

Email translation in the Back office & New languages

A merchant can now get email translation directly in the back office without accessing third-party translation programs or services. Together with the email theme feature from PrestaShop 1.7.6, this function can be turned on in Design -> Email theme. It speeds up the communication with international customers and prevents misunderstandings.

PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 release also introduces new languages available to the store administrator and end users. As PrestaShop is becoming more and more popular worldwide, during the installation, a merchant can use one of the 89 localization packs to make sure that there won’t be a language misunderstanding when the store is being set up.

Emojis support

In PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 release, emojis can be used both in front and back offices as all the database tables are encoded in utf8bm4 by default. It has been a while since emojis got into everyday life of most of the people so it is an important step in making PrestaShop a more up-to-date solution.

Manufacturer Part Number

This feature is needed to identify whether a product belongs to a certain manufacturer or not. It improves not only searching but also contributes to SEO as it allows search engines to demonstrate your product to a customer looking up products of a given producer or by using the product number.

New features in Order Pages

Several new features were added to improve order pages. One of the main goals here was to change the outdated design and improve efficiency with the help of more innovative solutions. First of all, the PrestaShop team carried out a survey among the users to discover the weak points. It demonstrated that order list page and order detail page are the ones that require improvement most. As a result, order pages were migrated to Symfony and redesigned.

The following features were added to upgrade the PrestaShop order list page:

  • Order’s preview. Now, any merchant with a PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 based store can preview significant information about the order just by clicking on the special icon. There is no need to open the order itself as it used to be in the previous versions. Order’s Preview function provides the list of products ordered, customer info, the invoice and shipping addresses, the info about the carrier and tracking ID when there is one.
  • Statuses’ color. This function allows merchants to group orders depending on their status. There are several colors which are set by default but it is possible to customize them in settings. By default, dark blue color means the orders require action from a customer. Light blue color means that the customer payment was accepted and now this order requires an action from the merchant. Green color orders do not require any action. Usually, it shows that the product is being delivered. Red or black in most cases demonstrate an error.
  • Editable order’s statuses. This feature contributes to order fulfillment efficiency. A merchant can update or change order status directly from the order list page just by clicking on a label.
  • Direct link to a customer’s profile. In the previous PrestaShop versions, merchants could access customers’ profiles at related order pages. Now, it is possible to get a link directly at the list of orders.

Besides the improvements listed above, bulk action which allows handling several orders at the same time was redesigned and the “open in new tabs” function allows opening several orders at once. You can learn more about it at the PrestaShop website.

The following improved features touched upon the page with order details:

  • Customized products display. Now, all the changes can be checked directly from the order details page.
  • Hooks replacement. Hooks were relocated mainly due to the changes in layout. Their new location is meant to improve backend user experience and increase efficiency.
  • Product list pagination. This new feature sufficiently improves merchant user experience as it allows to decrease the time spent on navigating in the order product list. Pagination makes this list more structured and there is no need to scroll down the whole list to find the needed product.
  • Pop-in with customer conversation. It allows a merchant to see the latest 4 messages and if necessary, the whole conversation as a pop-in. This function is a notable interface improvement as multiple users before complained about the absence of this feature.

Enable/disable suppliers

Some PrestaShop merchants used to complain about the generic function in older versions that controlled the display of brands in the front office. Now, store administrators can separately configure individual suppliers to be demonstrated or not.

Currencies

As it was reported in the previous PrestaShop versions that some users experience the lack of currencies available, the development team took care of it in the current release. Now, it is possible to add not only some new official currencies but also local ones or even custom. The PrestaShop store can be configured to display a currency in accordance with the language chosen.

New Insightful Error Page

In the older PrestaShop versions, online merchants used to face a blank page when there is an error in production mode in the back office. Now, this page provides the information about the error together with the possible ways to fix it. It helps to understand what is going on and the reason why the error occurred in the first place to prevent it from happening again in the future.

Core module enhancements

Besides the improved stability and performance by fixing over 160 notable bugs, several features were added to boost module productivity, including the following:

  • Blockreassurance. Now, it is available everywhere, including above the header or below the footer and on all pages. In the previous PrestaShop versions, the backend users experienced the lack of customization opportunities as this option was available on product pages and checkout page only. This module also makes it possible to change icon colors, add description or links.
  • Theme customization. This in-built module used to be available for homepage only. PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 release opens it for product pages and category pages. Core modules and the theme can be customized on these pages without difficulties.

Technical upgrades

  • jQuery 3.4.1 With a new release, PrestaShop’s back office and core theme support the newest jQuery version everywhere. Learn more about jQuery migration here.
  • Tabs with Symfony routes support and opportunity to enable/disable it. When working on previous versions, developers often had to use a fake legacy controller and the core team decided to eliminate this problem, enriching PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 with an advanced tab management module. If you disable it, it won’t be displayed.
  • PHP 7.3 To increase PrestaShop performance, after 1.7.7.0 release, PHP 7.1.2 version and earlier are no longer supported as it was announced earlier.

How to Choose Cheap and Reliable PrestaShop v1.7.7.0 Hosting?

Reliability and Speed of Access

Not only should the web host be reliable and fast, it should guarantee its uptime (the time when it is functional). Look for a minimum uptime of 99%. In fact, even 99% is actually too low — it really should be 99.5% or higher. The host should provide some sort of refund (eg prorated refund or discount) if it falls below that figure. Note though that guarantees are often hard to enforce from your end — especially if the host denies there was any downtime. However, without that guarantee, the web host will have little incentive to ensure that its servers are running all the time.

Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)

Data transfer (sometimes loosely referred to as “traffic” or “bandwidth”) is the amount of bytes transferred from your site to visitors when they browse your site.

Don’t believe any commercial web host that advertises “unlimited bandwidth”. The host has to pay for the bandwidth, and if you consume a lot of it, they will not silently bear your costs. Many high bandwidth websites have found this out the hard way when they suddenly receive an exorbitant bill for having “exceeded” the “unlimited bandwidth”. Always look for details on how much traffic the package allows. I personally always stay clear of any host that advertises “unlimited transfer”, even if the exact amount is specified somewhere else (sometimes buried in their policy statements). Usually you will find that they redefine “unlimited” to be limited in some way.

In addition, while bandwidth provided is something you should always check, do not be unduly swayed by promises of incredibly huge amounts of bandwidth. Chances are that your website will never be able to use that amount because it will hit other limits, namely resource limits.

To give you a rough idea of the typical traffic requirements of a website, most new sites that don’t provide video or music on their site use less than 3 GB of bandwidth per month. Your traffic requirements will grow over time, as your site becomes more well-known, so you will need to also check their policy when you exceed your data transfer limit: is there a published charge per GB over the allowed bandwidth? Is the charge made according to actual usage or are you expected to pre-pay for a potential overage? It is better not to go for hosts that expect you to prepay for overages, since it is very hard to forsee when your site will exceed its bandwidth and by how much.

Disk space

For the same reason as bandwidth, watch out also for those “unlimited disk space” schemes. Many new sites (that don’t host videos or music) need less than 20 MB of web space, so even if you are provided with a host that tempts you with 100 GB (or “unlimited space”), be aware that you are unlikely to use that space, so don’t let the 100 GB space be too big a factor in your consideration when comparing with other web hosts. The hosting company is also aware of that, which is why they feel free to offer you that as a means of enticing you to host there.

Technical support

Does its technical support function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (often abbreviated 24/7), all year around? Note that I will not accept a host which does not have staff working on weekends or public holidays. You will be surprised at how often things go wrong at the most inconvenient of times. Incidentally, just because a host advertises that it has 24/7 support does not necessarily mean that it really has that kind of support. Test them out by emailing at midnight and on Saturday nights, Sunday mornings, etc. Check out how long they take to respond. Besides speed of responses, check to see if they are technically competent. You wouldn’t want to sign up with a host that is run by a bunch of salesmen who only know how to sell and not fix problems.

Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding

If you have your own site, you will probably want to have email addresses at your own domain, like [email protected], etc. Does the host allow you to set up whatever email addresses you want on your domain, so that mail can be forwarded to your current email address, or placed into a mail box on your web hosting account itself? Can you set an email address to automatically reply to the sender with a preset message (called an autoresponder)? Can you retrieve your mail with your email software?

Control Panel

This is called various names by different hosts, but essentially, they all allow you to manage different aspects of your web account yourself. Typically, and at the very minimum, it should allow you to do things like add, delete, and manage your email addresses, and change passwords for your account. I will not sign up with a host where I have to go through their technical support each time I want to change a password or add/delete an email account. Such tasks are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Web Server and Operating System

Is the type of operating system and server important?

In general, most people will want to sign up for a web host offering a Unix-based system (like Linux, FreeBSD or OpenBSD) and running the Apache web server. Most web-based software assume your website is running on such a system, and you will usually experience fewer compatibility issues with it. There are also a lot of guides available on the Internet on configuring such systems, so finding help when you need it is easier as well.

In my opinion, the only time when you will want to use a Windows server is if you’re running Windows-specific programs, like ASP scripts. But even then, you’ll probably be better off looking for a PHP-equivalent, and using a Unix-based system.

Price

I was actually hesitant to list this, but I guess it’s futile not to. However, I would caution that while price is always a factor, you should realise (“realize” in US English) that you often get what you pay for, although it’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best.

Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Payment Plans

Most web hosts allow you to select an annual payment plan that gives you a cheaper rate than if you were to pay monthly. My current personal preference is to pay monthly with all new web hosts until I’m assured of their reliability and honesty. Paying monthly allows me to switch web hosts quickly when I find that the current host does not meet my requirements: this way, I’m not tied down to a bad web host because I have prepaid for an entire year. I do this even if the new web host guarantees that they will refund the balance if I’m dissatisfied, since at the point I sign up, I have no assurance that they will honour their guarantee. Later (usually after a couple of years), when I’m satisfied with the host, I may change payment plans to the discounted annual plans.

Resellers?

Not all hosting companies own or lease their own web servers. Some of them are actually resellers for some other hosting company. The disadvantage of using a reseller is the possibility that you are dealing with people who don’t know much about the system they are selling and who take longer to help you (they have to transmit your technical support request to the actual hosting company for it to be acted upon). However, this also depends on both the reseller and the underlying hosting company. It is thus wise not to rule out all resellers; there are a number of reliable and fast ones who are actually quite good and cheap. In fact, a number of resellers sell the same packages cheaper than their original hosting company. If you find out that a particular company is a reseller, you will need to investigate both the reseller and the real hosting company.

International

If you don’t stay in the USA, you have the option of hosting your site with some local provider. The advantage here is the ease of dealing with them (they are after all easily accessible by phone call or a visit), your familiarity with the local laws and easy recourse to those laws should it be necessary. It should be your choice if your target audience is local (eg a local fast food delivery service). On the other hand, hosting it in USA has the advantage of faster access for what is probably the largest number of your overseas visitors (particularly if you have an English-speaking audience). You also have a large number of hosting companies to choose from, and as a result, cheaper prices too.

This Mediawiki software is used to run the popular web encyclopaedia Wikipedia, besides all projects of Wikimedia, wikis hosted by Wikia, and many other wikis.

What is MediaWiki Used for?

Collaborative wiki software has revamped how we as Internet users approach content on the Internet. Whereas previous content was bundled into either static information added by a webmaster or a discussion board-like format, wikis allow any user to contribute their knowledge to the entirety of the Internet.

Here on campus, Kennesaw State University uses Mediawiki, which is the web software behind Wikipedia. When thinking about a particular project and the role a wiki can have in it, please consider that wikis can be beneficial in some areas and detrimental in others.

Beneficial areas for wikis include:

  • Course-collaborative data or research – Wikis allow for grouping and organization of data into categories and topics and allow each page to be editable by any of the permissable users.
  • Department-specific tasks or guidelines – Guidelines or tasks allow for guidelines to be always up-to-date, being updatable by any employee who accesses the page.
  • Project Details – Wikis provide a central area for users to update information, meeting details, tasks, and knowledge regarding departmental projects.

Detrimental areas for wikis include:

  • Message boards – Message boards do not naturally fit in a wiki system, as any message or shared item can be edited or removed by another user.
  • Sharing portals – As with message boards, shared items can be edited by any user after posting.
  • Public facing site – As all wikis hosted on campus are authenticated through netID, the wiki pages are not readable by non-authenticated users.
  • File hosting – Wikis are not acceptable sites for hosting files such as video, images, and documents.

How to Choose Cheap MediaWiki 1.35.1 Hosting Recommendation?

Reliability and Speed of Access

Not only should the web host be reliable and fast, it should guarantee its uptime (the time when it is functional). Look for a minimum uptime of 99%. In fact, even 99% is actually too low — it really should be 99.5% or higher. The host should provide some sort of refund (eg prorated refund or discount) if it falls below that figure. Note though that guarantees are often hard to enforce from your end — especially if the host denies there was any downtime. However, without that guarantee, the web host will have little incentive to ensure that its servers are running all the time.

Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)

Data transfer (sometimes loosely referred to as “traffic” or “bandwidth”) is the amount of bytes transferred from your site to visitors when they browse your site.

Don’t believe any commercial web host that advertises “unlimited bandwidth”. The host has to pay for the bandwidth, and if you consume a lot of it, they will not silently bear your costs. Many high bandwidth websites have found this out the hard way when they suddenly receive an exorbitant bill for having “exceeded” the “unlimited bandwidth”. Always look for details on how much traffic the package allows. I personally always stay clear of any host that advertises “unlimited transfer”, even if the exact amount is specified somewhere else (sometimes buried in their policy statements). Usually you will find that they redefine “unlimited” to be limited in some way.

In addition, while bandwidth provided is something you should always check, do not be unduly swayed by promises of incredibly huge amounts of bandwidth. Chances are that your website will never be able to use that amount because it will hit other limits, namely resource limits.

To give you a rough idea of the typical traffic requirements of a website, most new sites that don’t provide video or music on their site use less than 3 GB of bandwidth per month. Your traffic requirements will grow over time, as your site becomes more well-known, so you will need to also check their policy when you exceed your data transfer limit: is there a published charge per GB over the allowed bandwidth? Is the charge made according to actual usage or are you expected to pre-pay for a potential overage? It is better not to go for hosts that expect you to prepay for overages, since it is very hard to forsee when your site will exceed its bandwidth and by how much.

Disk space

For the same reason as bandwidth, watch out also for those “unlimited disk space” schemes. Many new sites (that don’t host videos or music) need less than 20 MB of web space, so even if you are provided with a host that tempts you with 100 GB (or “unlimited space”), be aware that you are unlikely to use that space, so don’t let the 100 GB space be too big a factor in your consideration when comparing with other web hosts. The hosting company is also aware of that, which is why they feel free to offer you that as a means of enticing you to host there.

Technical support

Does its technical support function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (often abbreviated 24/7), all year around? Note that I will not accept a host which does not have staff working on weekends or public holidays. You will be surprised at how often things go wrong at the most inconvenient of times. Incidentally, just because a host advertises that it has 24/7 support does not necessarily mean that it really has that kind of support. Test them out by emailing at midnight and on Saturday nights, Sunday mornings, etc. Check out how long they take to respond. Besides speed of responses, check to see if they are technically competent. You wouldn’t want to sign up with a host that is run by a bunch of salesmen who only know how to sell and not fix problems.

Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding

If you have your own site, you will probably want to have email addresses at your own domain, like [email protected], etc. Does the host allow you to set up whatever email addresses you want on your domain, so that mail can be forwarded to your current email address, or placed into a mail box on your web hosting account itself? Can you set an email address to automatically reply to the sender with a preset message (called an autoresponder)? Can you retrieve your mail with your email software?

Control Panel

This is called various names by different hosts, but essentially, they all allow you to manage different aspects of your web account yourself. Typically, and at the very minimum, it should allow you to do things like add, delete, and manage your email addresses, and change passwords for your account. I will not sign up with a host where I have to go through their technical support each time I want to change a password or add/delete an email account. Such tasks are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Web Server and Operating System

Is the type of operating system and server important?

In general, most people will want to sign up for a web host offering a Unix-based system (like Linux, FreeBSD or OpenBSD) and running the Apache web server. Most web-based software assume your website is running on such a system, and you will usually experience fewer compatibility issues with it. There are also a lot of guides available on the Internet on configuring such systems, so finding help when you need it is easier as well.

In my opinion, the only time when you will want to use a Windows server is if you’re running Windows-specific programs, like ASP scripts. But even then, you’ll probably be better off looking for a PHP-equivalent, and using a Unix-based system.

Price

I was actually hesitant to list this, but I guess it’s futile not to. However, I would caution that while price is always a factor, you should realise (“realize” in US English) that you often get what you pay for, although it’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best.

Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Payment Plans

Most web hosts allow you to select an annual payment plan that gives you a cheaper rate than if you were to pay monthly. My current personal preference is to pay monthly with all new web hosts until I’m assured of their reliability and honesty. Paying monthly allows me to switch web hosts quickly when I find that the current host does not meet my requirements: this way, I’m not tied down to a bad web host because I have prepaid for an entire year. I do this even if the new web host guarantees that they will refund the balance if I’m dissatisfied, since at the point I sign up, I have no assurance that they will honour their guarantee. Later (usually after a couple of years), when I’m satisfied with the host, I may change payment plans to the discounted annual plans.

Resellers?

Not all hosting companies own or lease their own web servers. Some of them are actually resellers for some other hosting company. The disadvantage of using a reseller is the possibility that you are dealing with people who don’t know much about the system they are selling and who take longer to help you (they have to transmit your technical support request to the actual hosting company for it to be acted upon). However, this also depends on both the reseller and the underlying hosting company. It is thus wise not to rule out all resellers; there are a number of reliable and fast ones who are actually quite good and cheap. In fact, a number of resellers sell the same packages cheaper than their original hosting company. If you find out that a particular company is a reseller, you will need to investigate both the reseller and the real hosting company.

International

If you don’t stay in the USA, you have the option of hosting your site with some local provider. The advantage here is the ease of dealing with them (they are after all easily accessible by phone call or a visit), your familiarity with the local laws and easy recourse to those laws should it be necessary. It should be your choice if your target audience is local (eg a local fast food delivery service). On the other hand, hosting it in USA has the advantage of faster access for what is probably the largest number of your overseas visitors (particularly if you have an English-speaking audience). You also have a large number of hosting companies to choose from, and as a result, cheaper prices too.

The Google Tools to Use When Conducting Keyword Research Today

Consumer behavior is changing rapidly and unpredictably during the coronavirus pandemic.

That’s why conducting keyword research is now more important than ever to understand the latest shifts in consumer intent.

Although 100% of SEO professionals worth their salt understand how to dig insights out of Google Search Console and know which keyword tools have helped them in the past to increase traffic, rankings, and visibility in search results, this is the time to think outside the search box.

Even one new insight per fortnight can help your company or clients pivot to create more relevant content as they navigate the “new normal.”

That means taking advantage of resources that didn’t exist before March 11, 2020, when the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, or using extra tools to double-check your assumptions.

Here are some places that I now visit virtually every weekday and some tools that I’ve reached for in the toolbox that I rarely used before I had to start dealing with strange things that go bump in the night.

1. Rising Retail Categories

In May 2020, Think with Google launched an interactive tool called Rising Retail Categories to help us understand:

  • Fast-rising retail categories in Google Search.
  • The locations where they’re growing.
  • The queries associated with them.

7 Google Tools to Use When Conducting Keyword Research Today

For example, the top trending categories in the U.S. year-over-year include:

  • Sprinkler controls.
  • Sneeze guards.
  • Household disinfectants.
  • Neck gaiters.
  • Protective masks.

Or, focus on the top trending categories month-over-month to discover:

  • Food Container Covers (+100%).
  • Crayons (+100%).
  • Medical Equipment (+90%).
  • Pen & Pencil Cases (+70%).
  • Baby & Toddler Outerwear (+60%).

Then, tackle the top trending categories week-over-week, and examine:

  • Blank ID Cards (+40%).
  • Pie & Pastry Fillings (+30%).
  • Play Mats & Gyms (+30%).
  • Foosball Tables (+30%).
  • Neck Gaiters (+30%).
  • Chalkboards (+30%).

If your company or clients makes any of these products, this is your opportunity to spot a key trend and become a hero.

2. Coronavirus Search Trends

In March 2020, Google launched Coronavirus Search Trends.

There was a surge in search interest for the topic, coronavirus, from late February through early May.

Since then, search interest in coronavirus has fallen below the topic, weather, and is now roughly equal with search interest in the topic, news, but still remains above the topics of sports and music.

3. The U.S. Economy & COVID-19

Recently, Google has added a new section of its Coronavirus Search Trends that is focused on The U.S. Economy and COVID-19.

How has the Coronavirus pandemic affected searches around the economy?

How do they compare now to searches in the past?

Scroll down the page to see search interest in the term, recession, since 2004.

7 Google Tools to Use When Conducting Keyword Research Today

And keep scrolling down to see the spikes in search interest in other terms, like unemployment benefits, food bank, food stamps, and mortgage forbearance.

Or, look at the map of the country to see where search interest in terms like debt, bankruptcy, and “can’t pay rent” are located.

4. Shopping Insights

Google launched Shopping Insights in October 2015, but I’ve rarely used the tool before the COVID-19 recession despite the fact that it enables you to see how your company or clients stack up against your competitors, and it lets you track competing products in your category.

In these “extraordinarily uncertain” times, it’s a life saver.

Now, it’s painfully obvious that this year’s disruptions are making it hard for retailers to plan for the holidays.

But, Shopping Insights helps them stay up to date on what shoppers want and follow trends in their category.

How can Google provide these shopping insights?

According to Think with Google, in 63% of shopping scenarios, shoppers go online to conduct research before they make a purchase decision, regardless of whether they end up buying online or in a store.

With daily search data for 55,000+ products, 45,000+ brands, and nearly 5,000 categories across the U.S., Shopping Insights helps you better understand customers’ shopping intent online, and make more informed merchandising and marketing decisions across online and offline channels.

For example, the top brands in the Toys & Games category, based on data from July 17 to August 16, 2020, are:

  • LEGO.
  • Hasbro.
  • Mattel.
  • Funko.
  • Hot Wheels.

So, if you are planning for either Small Business Saturday or the entire Holiday Season, you know which brands to stock on your shelves.

5. Market Finder

Google launched Market Finder in November 2017, but I’ve rarely used the tool in the past.

But, it has now become a game-changer when helping clients navigate the “new normal.”

For example, I’m working with the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR) to generate applications for its Online Professional Masters in Human Resource Management program.

By entering SMLR’s URL into Market Finder, I was able to calculate which regions offer the best opportunities for growth, based on key metrics for my chosen categories.

Within the United States, they are California, Texas, and Florida.

For Rutgers, which is the State University of New Jersey, this came as a major surprise, because it represents a significant shift from the geographic trends before the pandemic.

7 Google Tools to Use When Conducting Keyword Research Today

6. Google Surveys

Google Consumer Surveys was launched in March 2012. It was renamed Google Surveys in October 2016.

It’s become one of the essential tools in my toolkit for getting valuable insights into the minds of my clients’ target audiences.

If you haven’t used it yet, Google Surveys is a market research tool that gathers data from survey questions that you write.

Web users answer your survey questions in order to access high-quality content on the Google Display Network.

In turn, content publishers get paid as their users answer your questions. Google then aggregates and analyzes the responses through a simple online interface.

Yes, I also use Search Console and keyword tools. But, those tell me “what” people are searching for.

They don’t tell me “why” people are conducting those queries.

That’s why I’ve used Google Surveys multiple times to “see around corners or peek above walls,” as the toy periscope ads often say.

Only now, Google Surveys help me uncover search intent, which is much more valuable.

I have frequently used screening questions to ensure that the respondents to a particular survey represent the niche audience that my client is targeting, instead of anyone and everyone who used a search term.

And Google Surveys has enabled me to get answers within days instead of weeks with more traditional survey methods.

Oh, and did I mention that it was cheap?

No, it’s not free, but prices start of $0.10 per completed survey, although I typically pay about $1.50 per completed survey because I use surveys with 2 to 10 questions that are targeted at respondents of specific ages, genders, or locations.

For example, keyword research will generally help me select a keyword phrase to optimize the title and headline of a landing page.

But, Google Surveys will help me to ensure that the content on that landing page actually addresses the consumer intent behind the query.

7 Google Tools to Use When Conducting Keyword Research Today

Why is that valuable?

Because you can do more than generate organic search traffic.

SEOs can generate organic search traffic that converts into qualified leads or online sales.

7. Google Trends

Google Trends was launched in May 2005, so it’s the oldest tool on this list.

And many SEO professionals don’t use it that often because it doesn’t provide data on organic search volumes.

But these aren’t normal times.

And finding insights that can be processed within minutes of an event happening in the real world can get SEOs a seat at the table where strategic decisions are made.

For example, I just taught a course for the New Media Academy (NMA) on “Creating a Digital Marketing Strategy” to a group of more than 100 business professionals in the United Arab Emirates.

And one of the recent articles that I shared with my NMA class was entitled, How people decide what to buy lies in the ‘messy middle’ of the purchase journey.

It was written by Alistair Rennie and Jonny Protheroe, who both work on Google’s consumer insights team, and it was published last month in Think with Google.

Rennie and Protheroe used Google Trends to take a look at worldwide search interest for “best” vs. “cheap” from January 1, 2004, through July 1, 2020.

7 Google Tools to Use When Conducting Keyword Research Today

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never done this particular comparison before.

And I was surprised to see that worldwide search interest for “best” has increased steadily over the past 16-and-a-half years, while worldwide search interested for “cheap” had decreased steadily over the same period of time.

Oh, and the Great Recession of 2007-2009 didn’t impact these trends at all.

Now, that’s in insight worth taking to the next Zoom meeting of your entire marketing team.

As your company or clients deal with these “extraordinarily uncertain” times, this is not time to create and optimize new content for “cheap.”

You should create and optimize new content for “best,” instead.

Why?

Because that’s what your customers are searching for.

And, even though we’re facing an unprecedented crisis, it’s worth remembering that a crisis represents both a threat and an opportunity for your company or clients.

That means this unprecedented crisis represents a threat and an opportunity for you, too.

That’s why this is no time to continue using the same old tools that you learned to use five, 10, or 15 years ago.

It’s time to explore some or all of the alternatives mentioned above.

Who knows, they may help your company or clients bounce back from the COVID-19 recession more quickly, or they may even help you bounce forward to your next promotion in a shorter period of time.

I will not sign up with a host where I have to go through their technical support each time I want to change a password or add/delete an email account. Such tasks are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Web Server and Operating System

Is the type of operating system and server important?

In general, most people will want to sign up for a web host offering a Unix-based system (like Linux, FreeBSD or OpenBSD) and running the Apache web server. Most web-based software assume your website is running on such a system, and you will usually experience fewer compatibility issues with it. There are also a lot of guides available on the Internet on configuring such systems, so finding help when you need it is easier as well.

In my opinion, the only time when you will want to use a Windows server is if you’re running Windows-specific programs, like ASP scripts. But even then, you’ll probably be better off looking for a PHP-equivalent, and using a Unix-based system.

Price

I was actually hesitant to list this, but I guess it’s futile not to. However, I would caution that while price is always a factor, you should realise (“realize” in US English) that you often get what you pay for, although it’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best.

Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Payment Plans

Most web hosts allow you to select an annual payment plan that gives you a cheaper rate than if you were to pay monthly. My current personal preference is to pay monthly with all new web hosts until I’m assured of their reliability and honesty. Paying monthly allows me to switch web hosts quickly when I find that the current host does not meet my requirements: this way, I’m not tied down to a bad web host because I have prepaid for an entire year. I do this even if the new web host guarantees that they will refund the balance if I’m dissatisfied, since at the point I sign up, I have no assurance that they will honour their guarantee. Later (usually after a couple of years), when I’m satisfied with the host, I may change payment plans to the discounted annual plans.

Resellers?

Not all hosting companies own or lease their own web servers. Some of them are actually resellers for some other hosting company. The disadvantage of using a reseller is the possibility that you are dealing with people who don’t know much about the system they are selling and who take longer to help you (they have to transmit your technical support request to the actual hosting company for it to be acted upon). However, this also depends on both the reseller and the underlying hosting company. It is thus wise not to rule out all resellers; there are a number of reliable and fast ones who are actually quite good and cheap. In fact, a number of resellers sell the same packages cheaper than their original hosting company. If you find out that a particular company is a reseller, you will need to investigate both the reseller and the real hosting company.

International

If you don’t stay in the USA, you have the option of hosting your site with some local provider. The advantage here is the ease of dealing with them (they are after all easily accessible by phone call or a visit), your familiarity with the local laws and easy recourse to those laws should it be necessary. It should be your choice if your target audience is local (eg a local fast food delivery service). On the other hand, hosting it in USA has the advantage of faster access for what is probably the largest number of your overseas visitors (particularly if you have an English-speaking audience). You also have a large number of hosting companies to choose from, and as a result, cheaper prices too.

How to Choose Cheap Drupal 9.1.0 Hosting Provider Recommendation?

Reliability and Speed of Access

Not only should the web host be reliable and fast, it should guarantee its uptime (the time when it is functional). Look for a minimum uptime of 99%. In fact, even 99% is actually too low — it really should be 99.5% or higher. The host should provide some sort of refund (eg prorated refund or discount) if it falls below that figure. Note though that guarantees are often hard to enforce from your end — especially if the host denies there was any downtime. However, without that guarantee, the web host will have little incentive to ensure that its servers are running all the time.

Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)

Data transfer (sometimes loosely referred to as “traffic” or “bandwidth”) is the amount of bytes transferred from your site to visitors when they browse your site.

Don’t believe any commercial web host that advertises “unlimited bandwidth”. The host has to pay for the bandwidth, and if you consume a lot of it, they will not silently bear your costs. Many high bandwidth websites have found this out the hard way when they suddenly receive an exorbitant bill for having “exceeded” the “unlimited bandwidth”. Always look for details on how much traffic the package allows. I personally always stay clear of any host that advertises “unlimited transfer”, even if the exact amount is specified somewhere else (sometimes buried in their policy statements). Usually you will find that they redefine “unlimited” to be limited in some way.

In addition, while bandwidth provided is something you should always check, do not be unduly swayed by promises of incredibly huge amounts of bandwidth. Chances are that your website will never be able to use that amount because it will hit other limits, namely resource limits.

To give you a rough idea of the typical traffic requirements of a website, most new sites that don’t provide video or music on their site use less than 3 GB of bandwidth per month. Your traffic requirements will grow over time, as your site becomes more well-known, so you will need to also check their policy when you exceed your data transfer limit: is there a published charge per GB over the allowed bandwidth? Is the charge made according to actual usage or are you expected to pre-pay for a potential overage? It is better not to go for hosts that expect you to prepay for overages, since it is very hard to forsee when your site will exceed its bandwidth and by how much.

Disk space

For the same reason as bandwidth, watch out also for those “unlimited disk space” schemes. Many new sites (that don’t host videos or music) need less than 20 MB of web space, so even if you are provided with a host that tempts you with 100 GB (or “unlimited space”), be aware that you are unlikely to use that space, so don’t let the 100 GB space be too big a factor in your consideration when comparing with other web hosts. The hosting company is also aware of that, which is why they feel free to offer you that as a means of enticing you to host there.

Technical support

Does its technical support function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (often abbreviated 24/7), all year around? Note that I will not accept a host which does not have staff working on weekends or public holidays. You will be surprised at how often things go wrong at the most inconvenient of times. Incidentally, just because a host advertises that it has 24/7 support does not necessarily mean that it really has that kind of support. Test them out by emailing at midnight and on Saturday nights, Sunday mornings, etc. Check out how long they take to respond. Besides speed of responses, check to see if they are technically competent. You wouldn’t want to sign up with a host that is run by a bunch of salesmen who only know how to sell and not fix problems.

Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding

If you have your own site, you will probably want to have email addresses at your own domain, like [email protected], etc. Does the host allow you to set up whatever email addresses you want on your domain, so that mail can be forwarded to your current email address, or placed into a mail box on your web hosting account itself? Can you set an email address to automatically reply to the sender with a preset message (called an autoresponder)? Can you retrieve your mail with your email software?

Control Panel

This is called various names by different hosts, but essentially, they all allow you to manage different aspects of your web account yourself. Typically, and at the very minimum, it should allow you to do things like add, delete, and manage your email addresses, and change passwords for your account. I will not sign up with a host where I have to go through their technical support each time I want to change a password or add/delete an email account. Such tasks are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Cheap and Reliable WordPress 5.6 Hosting

What’s New in WordPress 5.6?

WordPress 5.6 was released earlier today, and it is the last major release of 2020.

This new release is packed with a lot of improvements and new features. It also includes a brand new default WordPress theme.

Twenty Twenty-One – The New Default WordPress Theme

WordPress traditionally releases a new default theme each year which is usually named after the year. WordPress 5.6 comes with Twenty Twenty-One as the new default WordPress theme. This new theme provides a canvas for the WordPress block editor and the site editing features. It is designed to be simple, aesthetically pleasing, un-opinionated, and refreshing. New default WordPress theme Twenty Twenty-One Twenty Twenty-One uses a pastel green background color, and two shades of dark grey for text. It also ships with colors for the dark mode which can be enabled by customizing the theme. Twenty Twenty-One dark mode You can also change the background color by choosing from several pastel color schemes or choose your own colors. The theme will automatically adjust text color as well. Choose a background color scheme Here is a preview of what these built-in color combinations would look like.  Pastel color schemes in Twenty Twenty-One For typography, designers opted to go with the default system fonts. This means no extra font files to load and easy to build child themes that have their own typography and fonts. If you are testing the theme with a fresh WordPress website, then you can try out the new homepage layout. Simply go to the Appearance » Customize page and click on the Publish button to generate basic website pages including a homepage. This sample homepage gives you an idea of what you can do with the block editor. You can simply edit the page and replace it with your own content. Earlier this year, WordPress 5.5 introduced patterns for the block editor. Twenty Twenty-One utilizes this feature by adding new block patterns that you can use in your posts and pages. Twenty Twenty-One patterns Overall this is a beautiful WordPress theme, that is easy to customize and can be used to make any type of website.

The Block Editor Improvements

The WordPress content editor is where users spend most of their time writing blog posts, creating pages, and making layouts. WordPress 5.6 brings several improvements to the block editor. Here are some of the most noticeable changes to the block editor in WordPress 5.6. Video Position Control for The Cover Block Previously cover block only showed position controls for images. With WordPress 5.6, the cover block now allows users to set video position inside the cover block. Cover block with video focal point picker controls Patterns Organized in Categories The patterns panel under the ‘Add new block’ column now has a category switcher. This makes it super easy for users to find and use a pattern they need. Users will also be able to see the patterns available with their theme and distinguish them from the default patterns. Pattern categories in WordPress 5.6 Keyword Variations to Improve Block Search The block editor now allows developers to store keyword variations that may help users find a block. This would improve the block search feature and will allow users to discover blocks added by block libraries or third-party plugins. Keyword variations make it easier to find common blocks Characters in The Information Panel The information panel will now show characters along with words, paragraphs, and blocks used in your content. Information panel in WordPress 5.6 Color Support for The Lists Block The lists block now has the option to choose text and background colors without adding the list into another block. List block color settings Social Icons Block Social Icons block has two improvements. First, there is a new gray style for social icon buttons. Secondly, users can now choose to open all links in the block in a new window. Social Icons block in WordPress 5.6 Editor Options are Now Called Preferences The default block editor has a settings panel where you can set up the editor to your own liking. In WordPress 5.6, this modal is now called ‘Preferences’ instead of ‘Options’. Editor preferences setting The modal itself now is more helpful with descriptions for different items. This would make it easier for beginners to decide which items they want to enable. Editor preferences menu

Automatic Updates for Major WordPress Releases

Earlier this year, WordPress 5.5 made it easier for users to turn on automatic updates for specific plugins. WordPress 5.6 extended this by adding the option to turn on automatic updates for major WordPress releases as well. You can go to Dashboard » Updates page inside WordPress admin area and click on the ‘Enable automatic updates for all new versions of WordPress’ link. Enable automatic updates for major WordPress releases This is totally optional for you to decide whether you want to enable this feature or not. If you are using a managed WordPress hosting, then you don’t need to worry about that as they will automatically update WordPress for you.

Support for PHP 8

PHP 8 support in WordPress 5.6 WordPress is written mainly with the PHP programming language. Just like WordPress, PHP also releases new versions to improve performance, add features, and fix bugs. They were expected to release PHP 8 on November 26 closer to the release of WordPress 5.6. The core team planned and worked hard to catch and fix any known compatibility issues with PHP 8. This will ensure that users who upgrade to the latest PHP version will not face any major issues. However, theme and plugin developers may still need to test their own code for compatibility.

Application Passwords for REST API

The REST API in WordPress allows developers to communicate with a website outside the WordPress installation itself. To keep it safe, WordPress used cookies and nonce keys to ensure that only legitimate users can access the API. For developers, these methods were not very efficient to work with. WordPress 5.6 will allow developers to use application passwords in WordPress. Just like popular platforms Facebook and Google, the users can now give apps access to their website and manage it from the Users » Profile page. Users can also revoke an app’s access at any time. Application passwords in WordPress 5.6

Under The Hood Changes

WordPress 5.6 has arrived with tons of features and improvements targeted towards developers. The following are some of the most significant under the hood changes. WordPress 5.6 continues the second phase of the three-step plan to upgrade the core jQuery bundled with WordPress. Theme and plugin developers relying on jQuery are already testing their code for any issues so it is not likely to affect large number of users. The new 5.6 release also includes REST API Batch Framework for making a series of REST API calls in one request to the server. A new action wp_after_insert_post is also available in WordPress 5.6. It allows theme and plugin developers to run custom code after a post and its terms and meta data have been updated. WordPress 5.6 has replaced older-style PHP type conversion functions with type casts. WordPress 5.6 also introduced the ability to merge WP_Error objects into one another. This would allow developers to add more than one item of data to the WP_Error object.

Are you looking for Cheap WordPress 5.6 Hosting? Finding a high quality Cheap WordPress 5.6 Hosting provider is crucial for your web application. Your WordPress 5.6 application can only run smooth if it will be hosted on a server which can provide a higher up time & plenty of computing resources.

How to Choose Cheap and Reliable WordPress 5.6 Hosting?

Reliability and Speed of Access

Not only should the web host be reliable and fast, it should guarantee its uptime (the time when it is functional). Look for a minimum uptime of 99%. In fact, even 99% is actually too low — it really should be 99.5% or higher. The host should provide some sort of refund (eg prorated refund or discount) if it falls below that figure. Note though that guarantees are often hard to enforce from your end — especially if the host denies there was any downtime. However, without that guarantee, the web host will have little incentive to ensure that its servers are running all the time.

Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)

Data transfer (sometimes loosely referred to as “traffic” or “bandwidth”) is the amount of bytes transferred from your site to visitors when they browse your site.

Don’t believe any commercial web host that advertises “unlimited bandwidth”. The host has to pay for the bandwidth, and if you consume a lot of it, they will not silently bear your costs. Many high bandwidth websites have found this out the hard way when they suddenly receive an exorbitant bill for having “exceeded” the “unlimited bandwidth”. Always look for details on how much traffic the package allows. I personally always stay clear of any host that advertises “unlimited transfer”, even if the exact amount is specified somewhere else (sometimes buried in their policy statements). Usually you will find that they redefine “unlimited” to be limited in some way.

In addition, while bandwidth provided is something you should always check, do not be unduly swayed by promises of incredibly huge amounts of bandwidth. Chances are that your website will never be able to use that amount because it will hit other limits, namely resource limits.

To give you a rough idea of the typical traffic requirements of a website, most new sites that don’t provide video or music on their site use less than 3 GB of bandwidth per month. Your traffic requirements will grow over time, as your site becomes more well-known, so you will need to also check their policy when you exceed your data transfer limit: is there a published charge per GB over the allowed bandwidth? Is the charge made according to actual usage or are you expected to pre-pay for a potential overage? It is better not to go for hosts that expect you to prepay for overages, since it is very hard to forsee when your site will exceed its bandwidth and by how much.

Disk space

For the same reason as bandwidth, watch out also for those “unlimited disk space” schemes. Many new sites (that don’t host videos or music) need less than 20 MB of web space, so even if you are provided with a host that tempts you with 100 GB (or “unlimited space”), be aware that you are unlikely to use that space, so don’t let the 100 GB space be too big a factor in your consideration when comparing with other web hosts. The hosting company is also aware of that, which is why they feel free to offer you that as a means of enticing you to host there.

Technical support

Does its technical support function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (often abbreviated 24/7), all year around? Note that I will not accept a host which does not have staff working on weekends or public holidays. You will be surprised at how often things go wrong at the most inconvenient of times. Incidentally, just because a host advertises that it has 24/7 support does not necessarily mean that it really has that kind of support. Test them out by emailing at midnight and on Saturday nights, Sunday mornings, etc. Check out how long they take to respond. Besides speed of responses, check to see if they are technically competent. You wouldn’t want to sign up with a host that is run by a bunch of salesmen who only know how to sell and not fix problems.

Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding

If you have your own site, you will probably want to have email addresses at your own domain, like [email protected], etc. Does the host allow you to set up whatever email addresses you want on your domain, so that mail can be forwarded to your current email address, or placed into a mail box on your web hosting account itself? Can you set an email address to automatically reply to the sender with a preset message (called an autoresponder)? Can you retrieve your mail with your email software?

Control Panel

This is called various names by different hosts, but essentially, they all allow you to manage different aspects of your web account yourself. Typically, and at the very minimum, it should allow you to do things like add, delete, and manage your email addresses, and change passwords for your account. I will not sign up with a host where I have to go through their technical support each time I want to change a password or add/delete an email account. Such tasks are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Web Server and Operating System

Is the type of operating system and server important?

In general, most people will want to sign up for a web host offering a Unix-based system (like Linux, FreeBSD or OpenBSD) and running the Apache web server. Most web-based software assume your website is running on such a system, and you will usually experience fewer compatibility issues with it. There are also a lot of guides available on the Internet on configuring such systems, so finding help when you need it is easier as well.

In my opinion, the only time when you will want to use a Windows server is if you’re running Windows-specific programs, like ASP scripts. But even then, you’ll probably be better off looking for a PHP-equivalent, and using a Unix-based system.

I was actually hesitant to list this, but I guess it’s futile not to. However, I would caution that while price is always a factor, you should realise (“realize” in US English) that you often get what you pay for, although it’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best.

Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Payment Plans

Most web hosts allow you to select an annual payment plan that gives you a cheaper rate than if you were to pay monthly. My current personal preference is to pay monthly with all new web hosts until I’m assured of their reliability and honesty. Paying monthly allows me to switch web hosts quickly when I find that the current host does not meet my requirements: this way, I’m not tied down to a bad web host because I have prepaid for an entire year. I do this even if the new web host guarantees that they will refund the balance if I’m dissatisfied, since at the point I sign up, I have no assurance that they will honour their guarantee. Later (usually after a couple of years), when I’m satisfied with the host, I may change payment plans to the discounted annual plans.

Resellers?

Not all hosting companies own or lease their own web servers. Some of them are actually resellers for some other hosting company. The disadvantage of using a reseller is the possibility that you are dealing with people who don’t know much about the system they are selling and who take longer to help you (they have to transmit your technical support request to the actual hosting company for it to be acted upon). However, this also depends on both the reseller and the underlying hosting company. It is thus wise not to rule out all resellers; there are a number of reliable and fast ones who are actually quite good and cheap. In fact, a number of resellers sell the same packages cheaper than their original hosting company. If you find out that a particular company is a reseller, you will need to investigate both the reseller and the real hosting company.

International

If you don’t stay in the USA, you have the option of hosting your site with some local provider. The advantage here is the ease of dealing with them (they are after all easily accessible by phone call or a visit), your familiarity with the local laws and easy recourse to those laws should it be necessary. It should be your choice if your target audience is local (eg a local fast food delivery service). On the other hand, hosting it in USA has the advantage of faster access for what is probably the largest number of your overseas visitors (particularly if you have an English-speaking audience). You also have a large number of hosting companies to choose from, and as a result, cheaper prices too.

Cheap and Reliable ASP.NET Core 5.0 Hosting Recommendation

Microsoft has renamed its next-generation web application framework ASP.NET Core 5.0, previously known as ASP.NET 5. In addition, the forthcoming Entity Framework 7, a database framework, will now be called ASP.NET Core 5.0.

Entity Framework Core 5.0 (EF Core) is Microsoft’s reboot of Entity Framework for the new “mobile first, cloud first” world. According to the roadmap, EF Core will become the official version at some point in the future when the team feels that they have a critical mass of important ORM features implemented. Entity Framework is Microsoft’s recommended data access technology for new applications.

.Net Framework is 17 years old and there are millions of apps built on it, by using every chunk of the functionality that Microsoft has ever incorporated. The weight of all of these apps makes .Net Framework incredibly heavy. Hence, the scope to innovate the .Net Framework is diminishing. Further, .Net Core has turned up a few years ago. At the time, it appeared as a younger brother of the .Net framework to attract Linux and Mac users. The recent announcement about the arrival of .Net Core 3 promises to bridge the gap with the latest version of .Net Framework, empowering WPF, Windows Form and Entity Framework 6. Alongside these two versions of .Net – .Net Framework and .Net Core, Microsoft made a huge announcement about the release of .Net 5 – the future of .Net. The announcement added that there would be .Net 5 that is Opensource and Cross-platform, which will replace .Net Framework, .Net Core and Xamarin with a single unified platform called .Net 5 Framework. .Net 5 - A Unified Platform As shown above, .Net 5 will be powered with the best features of the .Net Framework, .Net Core, Mono, and Xamarin to provide APIs, libraries, and run-time to create apps for Web, Windows, Mobile & IoT devices. The main goal of .Net 5 is to empower unified .Net Client Application projects to create deliverables for various platforms including Windows, UNIX, Linux, Legacy Windows, iOS, Driod, HTML5, and Macintosh. With the announcement of .Net 5, we realized that Microsoft is skipping .Net 4 to avoid mix-up with the .Net Framework versions. Then the .Net 5 will be accompanied by the .Net versions like .Net 6.0, .Net 7.0 & .Net 8.0. This will not happen overnight. Microsoft .Net team has announced the timeline for these versions as shown below:.Net Schedule Source: Microsoft

.Net 5 Moves ahead with .Net Core

.Net 5 will offer everything that you would expect from the .Net core while making it suitable for Mobile and IoT platform development. With these new updates, developers will no longer need to choose between .Net Core, .Net Framework and Mono, based on which platform they’re developing their applications. As the first step in that direction, the .Net 5 ensures to incorporate the best of .Net core functionalities:
  • Cross-platform implementation with any device
  • Supports all key platform features for .Net core, Xamarin, .Net Framework
  • Open Source & Community-Oriented
  • Fast, Scalable, and high performance
  • Support with future updates to Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio 2019, Command Line Interface and Visual Studio for Mac.
  • Support for platform-specific features like Windows Forms, & WPF on Windows
  • Side-by-side installation
  • Smarter Deployment & packages
  • Small Project Files
Besides these features, .Net 5 promises the three new major supports for developers:.Net 5 Feature For Developers These updates would ensure a single unified .Net framework and runtime for everything, including Mac, Web, Mobile, IoT, Gaming, Data Science, Machine Learning and Cloud.

Other Vital Features to Highlight

As Microsoft resolves the kinks on the latest version of .Net, the .Net 5 will feature new .Net APIs, desktop development, runtime capabilities, language features and many more.

1. Desktop Development with .Net 5

Microsoft is fetching Windows Desktop Packs to support desktop apps, which works only on Windows. .Net 5 will come up with all key desktop development functionalities and libraries. Xamarin, WPF, Windows Forms and UWP (Universal Windows Platform) are the four key desktop platforms. The porting of Windows desktop app into .Net doesn’t change the .Net Core architecture, but adds some additional benefits including Core Runtime & API Performance enhancement, and deployment flexibility. .Net 5 also supports some major sub-framework for desktop development like Entity Framework, GDI+, LINQ, and ADO.Net.

2. Mobile Development with .Net

.Net 5 will continue to build cross-platform mobile apps for Android, iOS, tvOS, macOS, and watchOS platforms using Xamarin. Xamarin is supported by the Mono runtime and it offers a set of programming languages, developers’ tools and libraries. Xamarin uses XAML as the major UI programming language and C# as the backend language.

3. Cloud Development with .NET 5

Azure app development will be one among the major functionalities of .Net 5. With the release of the latest version of .Net, developers will continue to develop software with Azure. Azure Cloud development encompasses a mix of tools and frameworks, including Web API, ASP.Net, Serverless computing, Azure databases, Docker containers, microservices, DevOps and more.

4. Game Development with .Net 5

.Net 5 and Visual Studio 2019 will support Unity, a vital part of .Net gaming to develop games for mobile, Xbox and other gaming platforms.

5. Runtime and Language with .Net 5

.Net 5 will provide the developers with the choice of runtimes between CoreCLR and Mono. CoreCLR is the .Net core runtime used for Windows desktop, IOT, machine learning, and Cloud applications. Mono is a well-known Cross-platform .Net implementation, an open source alternative to .Net frameworks. Both Mono and CoreCLR include many similarities and some valuable unique capabilities. Additionally, .Net 5 will come up with AoT(Ahead-of-Time) and JIT (Just-in-Time) compilation models. JIT has proven its enhanced performance for server/desktop workloads as well as the development environment. On the other hand, AoT possesses a small footprint, fast startup, and lower memory usage.

How to Choose Cheap ASP.NET Core 5.0 Hosting Recommendation

Reliability and Speed of Access

Not only should the web host be reliable and fast, it should guarantee its uptime (the time when it is functional). Look for a minimum uptime of 99%. In fact, even 99% is actually too low — it really should be 99.5% or higher. The host should provide some sort of refund (eg prorated refund or discount) if it falls below that figure. Note though that guarantees are often hard to enforce from your end — especially if the host denies there was any downtime. However, without that guarantee, the web host will have little incentive to ensure that its servers are running all the time.

Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)

Data transfer (sometimes loosely referred to as “traffic” or “bandwidth”) is the amount of bytes transferred from your site to visitors when they browse your site.

Don’t believe any commercial web host that advertises “unlimited bandwidth”. The host has to pay for the bandwidth, and if you consume a lot of it, they will not silently bear your costs. Many high bandwidth websites have found this out the hard way when they suddenly receive an exorbitant bill for having “exceeded” the “unlimited bandwidth”. Always look for details on how much traffic the package allows. I personally always stay clear of any host that advertises “unlimited transfer”, even if the exact amount is specified somewhere else (sometimes buried in their policy statements). Usually you will find that they redefine “unlimited” to be limited in some way.

In addition, while bandwidth provided is something you should always check, do not be unduly swayed by promises of incredibly huge amounts of bandwidth. Chances are that your website will never be able to use that amount because it will hit other limits, namely resource limits.

To give you a rough idea of the typical traffic requirements of a website, most new sites that don’t provide video or music on their site use less than 3 GB of bandwidth per month. Your traffic requirements will grow over time, as your site becomes more well-known, so you will need to also check their policy when you exceed your data transfer limit: is there a published charge per GB over the allowed bandwidth? Is the charge made according to actual usage or are you expected to pre-pay for a potential overage? It is better not to go for hosts that expect you to prepay for overages, since it is very hard to forsee when your site will exceed its bandwidth and by how much.

Disk space

For the same reason as bandwidth, watch out also for those “unlimited disk space” schemes. Many new sites (that don’t host videos or music) need less than 20 MB of web space, so even if you are provided with a host that tempts you with 100 GB (or “unlimited space”), be aware that you are unlikely to use that space, so don’t let the 100 GB space be too big a factor in your consideration when comparing with other web hosts. The hosting company is also aware of that, which is why they feel free to offer you that as a means of enticing you to host there.

Technical support

Does its technical support function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (often abbreviated 24/7), all year around? Note that I will not accept a host which does not have staff working on weekends or public holidays. You will be surprised at how often things go wrong at the most inconvenient of times. Incidentally, just because a host advertises that it has 24/7 support does not necessarily mean that it really has that kind of support. Test them out by emailing at midnight and on Saturday nights, Sunday mornings, etc. Check out how long they take to respond. Besides speed of responses, check to see if they are technically competent. You wouldn’t want to sign up with a host that is run by a bunch of salesmen who only know how to sell and not fix problems.

Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding

If you have your own site, you will probably want to have email addresses at your own domain, like [email protected], etc. Does the host allow you to set up whatever email addresses you want on your domain, so that mail can be forwarded to your current email address, or placed into a mail box on your web hosting account itself? Can you set an email address to automatically reply to the sender with a preset message (called an autoresponder)? Can you retrieve your mail with your email software?

Control Panel

This is called various names by different hosts, but essentially, they all allow you to manage different aspects of your web account yourself. Typically, and at the very minimum, it should allow you to do things like add, delete, and manage your email addresses, and change passwords for your account. I will not sign up with a host where I have to go through their technical support each time I want to change a password or add/delete an email account. Such tasks are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Web Server and Operating System

Is the type of operating system and server important?

In general, most people will want to sign up for a web host offering a Unix-based system (like Linux, FreeBSD or OpenBSD) and running the Apache web server. Most web-based software assume your website is running on such a system, and you will usually experience fewer compatibility issues with it. There are also a lot of guides available on the Internet on configuring such systems, so finding help when you need it is easier as well.

In my opinion, the only time when you will want to use a Windows server is if you’re running Windows-specific programs, like ASP scripts. But even then, you’ll probably be better off looking for a PHP-equivalent, and using a Unix-based system.

Price

I was actually hesitant to list this, but I guess it’s futile not to. However, I would caution that while price is always a factor, you should realise (“realize” in US English) that you often get what you pay for, although it’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best.

Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Payment Plans

Most web hosts allow you to select an annual payment plan that gives you a cheaper rate than if you were to pay monthly. My current personal preference is to pay monthly with all new web hosts until I’m assured of their reliability and honesty. Paying monthly allows me to switch web hosts quickly when I find that the current host does not meet my requirements: this way, I’m not tied down to a bad web host because I have prepaid for an entire year. I do this even if the new web host guarantees that they will refund the balance if I’m dissatisfied, since at the point I sign up, I have no assurance that they will honour their guarantee. Later (usually after a couple of years), when I’m satisfied with the host, I may change payment plans to the discounted annual plans.

Know This Before You Enter Web Development

Every beginner starts their journey in web development learning frontend part, backend part, and some tools which are important to build the web project. Building your first project on your own after so many struggles is an exciting feeling for the beginners. You start having a lot of expectations from your job but when you enter the industry you find that your expectations are not even close to the real situation.

You learn a lot of new things in your job such as how to debug the code, how to work on someone else code, how to write clean code, how to refactor your code and how to search the things on your own and build the feature. Well learning these things help grow as a developer. Here we are going to discuss these things which are good to know before you start your career in web development. It will help you to manage your expectations and it will set you on the right path.

1. A Degree is not Just the Option to Enter in Programming

If you want to make a career in programming or web development college degree is not just the only option to enter this field. There are so many resources available on the internet that can teach you coding from the basics. You can take the help of youtube videos, StackOverflow, learning websites to teach yourself programming. Even kids are learning to code and building their websites and apps taking the help of these resources. So you can also become a self-taught developer taking advantage of these resources.

2. You will Google Things a Lot

Working on real-world projects in industries will teach you the most important skills in programming i.e. Googling. You can save a lot of time if you know how and what to google to find a solution for a creatin problem and to fix some specific issue. Also, remember that it’s totally fine if you are taking the help of Google to find out the solution. It’s a sign of being a smart developer and not a bad developer.

3. You Can’t Learn Everything

A lot of newbie developers get attracted to shiny tools, technology, and frameworks. They listen from here and there that this language or that framework is popular and then they try to learn everything which is a wrong decision. Understand that you can’t learn everything. Companies (domain-specific) are looking for the people who know the tech stack company is working with. Every company works in different languages and different frameworks so decide which company you want to work with and focus on learning that specific language. Another option is to choose a specific language or framework to learn and find the companies that are working on the same language or tech stack.

4. Writing an Easy Code is More Important than Writing Fancy Code

A lot of developers try to write fancy or complex code just for the show off how well they can code. Understand that it’s important to keep your code simple. A simple and clean code is always easy to understand and easy to modify. When other developers have to work on someone else code they always expect to work on simple and easy to understand code.

5. Developers are Lazy in Doing Proper Testing

A lot of developers are lazy and don’t enjoy the proper testing of the module in their job. It also happens that if there is a deadline mentioned for developers then they try to build the module first and sacrifice a few testing in their project.

6. A Specific Time Estimation Not Always Works

In development when sometimes you need to build a feature or module you think that it will take just 3-4 hours because it looks simple but in some cases when you start working on that feature you realize that your project flow doesn’t allow you to get this little feature work. In that case either you need to make some modifications in another part or you need to restructure a big part of the application to get this little feature to work.

7. You will Laugh Looking at Your Own Old Code

When beginners enter into development or programming they write a lot of messy code. They just really want to fix the things and if the code works, it’s fine. They consider that working software is good software so they first give priority to making things work. After a couple of years as an experienced developer, they laugh and they feel ashamed looking at their spaghetti code. They start thinking that “how can I write such a messy code?” but later they smile and realize how far they have come as a developer. Now they also understand that good software is not just about making things work.

8. Fixing the Bug is a Time-Consuming Process

It’s easy to spot a beginner in development the way they try to fix the bug and build an application. In development writing, bug-free code is impossible for newbie developers. They take a lot of time to fix the bugs and the reason why it happens is “they don’t know where to look and what to look for?”. Slowly once they start understanding the flow of a project and some debugging technique they get better at fixing the bug.

9. You Will Face Imposter Syndrome

Your coworkers are talking about some cool and new technology but you don’t get it. You agree with their conversation but the reality is you didn’t understand what they are talking about. You also find that writing a new feature is difficult in your code because you don’t know half of the technology. You think that you don’t fit in your job role, you start having self-doubt and you feel like an imposter. Well, not only beginners get these feelings but also experienced developers have to deal with it. Initially, imposter syndrome makes someone very uncomfortable but later with experience, you become habitual of it and you become comfortable with getting this uncomfortable feeling all the time.

10. You Can’t Memorize Everything

Memorizing each tag of HTML or syntax of your programming language is not a good idea in development. Beginners make this mistake a lot and their progress becomes slow. Understand that you don’t need to memorize everything. If you don’t know something then google it and use it. Syntax eventually gets clicked in your brain after some experience in working on the same language and writing the same code multiple times.

11. You Need to Be a Good Problem Solver

This is one of the most important things every newbie programmer should consider in development. Your problem-solving technique is much more important and valuable for a company. You will be paid to solve the problems not to write a thousand lines of code. A good developer needs to be creative and they need to find out the best solution to build a feature or to fix a certain problem. You will find multiple solutions for a single problem so now you need to use your creativity to solve problems easily and effectively.

12. You will Be Reading a Lot

You will be spending a lot of time reading about new technology, tools, and best practices. You will be spending time staying up to date with the things happening in the industry. What technologies or frameworks are popular in the industry, how to use that and for what kind of application it is suitable for. It will also help you in getting the other job opportunities and upgrading your skills.

13. Responsiveness Can be Frustrating

It’s not easy for developers to make the application look good and awesome for all screen size devices. Making an application responsive to all kinds of devices is really a pain for developers. There are so many different devices and browsers, there is always a combination of a browser and device that doesn’t look great. You will be fixing these issues a lot using media queries and other techniques.
