• Free Engine: CMS WordPress is distributed under an open license agreement (GNU GPL). You can freely use this product for any purpose you want, including commercial use.

• Virtually Unlimited Possibilities. Using WordPress you can create a personal blog, corporate website, online shop, information portal, resource industry and multimedia gallery.

How to Choose Web Hosting and Register a Domain

If you have a non-commercial project, choose free Web hosting. For example, share your photos with the world or keep a diary of your work on the WordPress platform.

In this case, your URL will look like this: bbc.wordpress.com. (Read it in detail about how to develop a blog on WordPress)

If you are implementing a commercial project, for example, create a theme blog, corporate website or plan to make using the resource in any way. Choose the paid hosting.

Web-hosting-servers-3

Not keep keep your head busy examining and comparing the technical characteristics of the hosting, for example, the size of disk space, downloading channel, bandwidth etc believe me, in the first months and year of the existence of your website to work properly, you will have enough requirements that some average hosting provider is offering you.

Therefore, contact the Sales Department of a reliable company that provides hosting services, describe your needs and then with the help of a consultant choose a suitable tariff plan.

To choose a reliable hosting provider, review ratings and companies reviews by searching using google or you can read our guide on how to choose web hosting. If you don’t have time for this, use the services of one of the following companies:

• Godaddy

• Hostgator

• Bluehost

• Dream Host

The hosting company will also help you for domain’s registration. It is not enough only to come up with a domain name, make sure that it’s free or paid.

How to Make sure that the Chosen Domain name is Free or Paid

The following guidelines will help you choose a good domain name:

• Choose a domain name, partially or completely the same as you think the name of the business or brand. For example you want to promote your pizza business and your brand name is “setpizza”, then you should choose your domain name such as pizza.com (partial match) or setpizza.com (exact match).

• Use the shortest possible domain name. It is difficult for smartphone owners to enter a long address in the browser.

• Make sure that the selected website address is easy to remember and it makes sense.

How to install WordPress

After the purchase of hosting and domain name registration, you can install WordPress.

(Note: some hosting providers offer plans with pre-installed WordPress CMS. If you choose one of them, go to the next step of the Guide. If you have purchased Web hosting without the WordPress, follow the instructions:)

• Go to your cpanel account provided by hosting provider and find out the “Softaculous” and click on it. In my case there is the software with the name “site software”. If your hosting provider not provide any software for wordpress installation than you have to install wordpress munally via ftp.

• My hosting provider has already been installed wordpress software so just click on WordPress.

After reading this article, you will learn what is a local server, why do I need it and after then how to run wordpress site on local host or on your computer.

What is the advantages of localhost and why it is necessary

A tremendous convenience for webmasters, who had only planned to create new or another Website. You can first create a website locally, configure it, choose and install a theme, tweak design, install the required plugins and so on. And then upload it to the hosting for free access.

Redesign and other repair work. Customers will see immediately the finished product, rather than the raw material, which will be in the intermediate stage. Some webmasters, at the time of large-scale works with the website, put to him by the so-called “plugins-stub”, thus losing traffic. Visitor instead of required information sees the page like “site under construction“. To avoid these things, we have the need to setup the website on localhost.

Localhost is a good decision to test plugins like reCaptcha, may be use face any kind of issue like wordpress errors due to non-authentic plugin, edit the template files or engine, test scripts, and so on. Why pay for a single domain, occupy space on hosting when you can just create a website on the local server.

There are a lot of strategies and indicators which allows you to search for the point of entry and exit, look for strong level of support and resistance and other important points on the exchange. But one thing is for sure that there is no magic indicator that would always give just the right signals of when to buy and when to sell for each transaction to close in profit. As I mentioned above there is no surety of always profit.

One of the best exchangers i will recommend for the exchange of bitcoins is EXMO. It has the advantage that they support multiple virtual currencies and you can exchange your bitcoins with random options.

By the way, to make money online through the bitcoin and its fluctuations, it is not mandatory to work with exchangers all the time. You can just use exchangers waiting until their rate falls, then buy from them, and then wait for the growth in rate, and then sale them back with the ratio of profit. This is the easy way to earn money through bitcoin. In this case profit is definite, but only one thing is required, and that is patience.

But a new predictions of 2016 is in, and according to that, bitcoin will raise around 350 USD to 700 USD.

Earn Money through Bitcoin

For me bitcoin now looks like a speculative instrument, the difference of the course which you can try to earn something. Moreover, in the future bitcoin will grow more, time will show us actually.

5 Advantages of BitCoin

Introduction of Bitcoin

Today we will talk about a virtual currency called “BitCoin”, only reason to write about this thing is to increase the existing information and knowledge on this crypto currency. On internet and even on television we more often hear about new electronic currency/virtual/crypto currency. At the moment the information on “BitCoin” is not very much due to the fact that only few people knows perfectly about it, but the popularity is rapidly gaining momentum.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

Even some states have begun to express their opinions about this virtual currency. In this article I will try my best to explain that what is “BitCoin” and how it can be produced and other introductory matters. Definition of BitCoin is hard to explain, but let me try to gather some valid information to make an understandable definition.

“BitCoin is a crypto currency or in common it’s a digital currency that can be created and held electronically. No one controls it. It’s not in a printed form like other currencies like Dollar and Euros or Yen. It can be produced only by the users and exchange within the businesses.”

You can read more about How to Make Money online from Bitcoin

If we compile this definition on the basis of our knowledge, we can create a brief definition of our own, such as; “BitCoin is a virtual currency that exists on the network and can be exchanged for real money.” Even Wikipedia is unable to define the word “BitCoin” properly, so you will find random and anonymous definition about “BitCoin” each time you search.

Who is the Creator?

Well that’s a valid and common question will pop up in our mind, the answer of this question is not very satisfactory, however existing information shows that “BitCoin” was created by a Japanese person named “Satoshi Nakamto” in between 2008 – 2009. No such information is available about the identity of Santoshi, and it is also not found anywhere in the “BitCoin” network, it s mystery that is not resolved yet. Although some researchers published some details about “Santoshi Nakamoto” but that is just a myth.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

Only 21 million “BitCoins” are released exactly till now, not one more. This is a clear limit which will gradually commit the number. This figure was counted in the beginning of 2014, recent stats may vary. Despite the fact that number of “BitCoins” becomes more and more every day, but their path to real money recently rather abruptly goes up. The recent cost of one “BitCoin” is 700 USD, in summer 2013 the currency was worth 100 times cheaper. It is an enormous growth that could earn you even 10000% of your currency.

“BitCoin” is often compared to “Virtual Gold”. In the real world gold is just a metal that has a cost, as there is great demand. “BitCoin” have the same meaning, but to maintain them is impossible due to its virtual existence. “BitCoin” will have same value as long as demand is there, and the demand of a new growing yet steady currency gives the large prospects. By the way, in future, maybe manufacturing the real gold “BitCoins” is possible.

What is Mining?

You will be surprised, “BitCoins” can be mined, but it is not always be profitable. Honestly and personally, I have never mined “BitCoins” through mining, but judging by the user feedback and the online stats an idea can be taken. Because the more they create, the harder it will be to creating the new form, but due to the growth rate of “BitCoins” the chances of profit was increased, so the production was much easier due to less complexity.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

Most of us said that the “BitCoin” is the currency of future, but it is early to say so. This can happen only if it will legalize all the countries according to the laws of “BitCoin”.

Guaranteed Ways to Prevent Google Adsense Account Get Disabled

Let’s look at what significant advantages have the new crypto currency?

BitCoin Advantages :

  1. Anonymity

Due to the decentralized network, “BitCoin” works anonymously.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

You can only track the last transaction, but to whom and what was transferred before will stay as really private. That is why it is not allowed in all countries around the globe.

  1. The alternative to the Existing Money

BitCoin is an alternative rather convenient method of payment. Now there are a lot of places, both online and in real life that take BitCoins.

  1. No Taxes

When paying through BitCoin, taxes will not apply, since officially BitCoin is not a printed currency.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

This gives the opportunity to buy the good a bit cheaper.

  1. International Currency

BitCoin is a truly international currency, it is same everywhere, and it is very convenient as well.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

For example in US and in other countries to pay for everything you can use BitCoin without worrying about currency exchange.

  1. No Fee

No fee for transferring BitCoins. However, if the transfer is to be implemented immediately.

BitCoin Advantages and General Introduction

You will have to pay the commission that you will decide to pay, the more you pay, the faster the transfer.

Well, as with advantages there are also some negative points of BotCoin such as the risk of security as any virtual currency cannot be secured properly, it is also outside the law by some countries to use BitCoin, fluctuation of rate is also a bad thing in order to maintain your balance.

I think that is enough information on BitCoin, because other things might not be necessary or important, your questions and comments are appreciated more than anything. However such information is based on my personal use and experience. If my any chance I forgot something to mention, you can ask me through the comment section or I can be reached easily through email.

Any problem in WordPress can be addressed and it does not need any special skills of work with CMS. Today I will tell you about the most common problems or errors that occur occasionally in WordPress, and i will try to describe the detail process of elimination as well.

9 Common WordPress Errors and their Solution

Here is the list of most common errors in wordpress:

500 Internal Server Error

Error Establishing a Database Connection

HTTP Error 403 – Forbidden

Connection Timed Out

Cannot Modify Header Information

404 Error in WordPress

Fatal Error – Undefined Function

WordPress Memory Exhausted

WSOD – White screen of death

1. WordPress 500 internal server error

One of the common causes of internal server error is due to incorrect configuration of a specific file named “.htaccess” located in the root directory of the website. You can access this file through your admin panel/Cpanel. For internal server error 500 there are 3 possible solutions we can try:

500 Internal server error

i. You can made changes to solve this issue, log in to your server, go to root directory, open the file named “.htaccess” in notepad and remove the last added line of code, and update the file, it will possibly recover your website to the previous stage.

ii. Delete this file from root directory and go to “Settings” in “WordPress” click on the link named “Permalinks” and click “Save” and that’s it. It will automatically create the new file with fresh code in the root directory, and your site will start working as usual.

iii. You can view the report of your website error(s) in the file named “error_log” also located in root directory of your website panel.

2. Error Establishing a Database Connection

As name of error “establishing database connection” simplifying to understand the cause, the system cannot connect to the database server, means configuration error with website database located on your server.

Establishing database connection

Some possible solutions of wordpress database connection error are here:

i. MySQL server is not running usually occurs on VPS servers. You need to restart the server. If the problem is not solved, contact to support of your hosting/server.

ii. A wrong configuration in a specific file named “wp-config.php” located in root directory of the website; it is possible that username, password or any database name is typed wrong or without quotes. Open this file in notepad and read all the options to find out any mentioned mistake.

iii. You may have limited access to your database, you can change the access from your WordPress settings, change the access permissions and then test again, and hopefully wordpress connect the database and error will be gone.

iv. Least but possible issue might be hacking, that your website have been hacked, definitely the link between your website and database will break and you will face wordpress error establishing a database connection. You can check your website through a specific remote scanner and it is free as well https://sitecheck.sucuri.net

3. HTTP Error 403 Forbidden

The page or resource you are trying to access is absolutely forbidden 403 to reach out. This error usually occurs with the absence of “Index” file in your website directory.

HTTP Error 403 Forbidden

Possible steps can be taken to eliminate this error such as:

i. You have the wrong file in your server, correct file must be named “index.php” or “index.html”; it could be any depends upon your selection pattern. In some cases file is simply missing so create it. So you follow the steps by searching “How to create index file for WordPress”

ii. The problem with the rights. Perhaps you have exhibited limited rights to your index file. Should perform rights for file and parent categories.

iii. The file has been uploaded to a different directory. Find the index file and move to the root folder of your website.

4. Connection Timed Out

Mostly occurs when the server is rebooted, unreachable, or subjected to a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack.

Connection Timed Out

Possible steps you can do to eradicate connection timedout error:

i. Check your WordPress plugins and remove the old one’s which are not in use.

ii. Increase the RAM to your WordPress from your server.

iii. Reset your WordPress theme to default and restore you last working backup of website.

5. Cannot Modify Header Information

Appears mainly because of gaps or error in the code of a specific file named “wp-settings.php” this error is easy to resolve because it provide you details, for example (category/wp-settings.php line:78). This means the error is in “wp-settings” on the line number 78. Here is one solution I can provide on this issue:

i. Download the file name “wp-settings.php” and open that on notepad, delete the spaces filled with ++ and save the file again to recover from the error connecton timedout.

6. 404 Error in WordPress

WordPress 404 error is generated by server, when request page of URL does not found. It likely happens in WordPress as well, here are some solutions to resolve 404 page not found wordpress error:

i. It usually happens due to non configured permalinks, it can be fixed very easily through your WordPress panel. Go to “Settings” click “Permalinks” select the link type and save changes.

404 Page not found

ii. If error still exists, try to disable the specific plugin which redirect pages, if you are using any.

iii. You can disable all your plugins one by one, like disable one plugin, check error, if still available, active that plugin again, and disable next, and check website.

7. Fatal Error – Undefined Function

This is a simple error, means auto update system has failed. In this case you need to roll back the website in working state by using backup then update your WordPress version manually. This is it; fatal error will be resolved for sure.

Fatal Error Undefined Function

8. WordPress Memory Exhausted

WordPress memory exceeds when your website crosses the limit of using the RAM allotted by server. Here are some solutions for that:

WordPress Memory Exhausted

i. Log on to the server and see how much RAM is available and how much is allocated for your website.

ii. Change the setting of the file named “wp-config.php” by adding more memory. Find the line “define wp_memory_limit 32M” specific digits will be there, such as 16M, 32M or 64M. Suppose if the written value is 32M you can change that with 64M and so on. Note that your allotted RAM should match your server specification.

iii. Plugins use a lot of RAM, my suggestion is not remove or disable all problematic plugins and find a replacement.

9. White Screen of Death (WSOD)

White screen of death wordpress error mostly occurs while installing or editing plugins, it can also happen due to the non updated plugins in your WordPress list. WSOD (White screen of death) means just a blank white screen nothing else, each time you try to reach your website just a blank white screen.

White screen of death

Some simple solutions we can follow are:

i. Rename the plugins directory and create a new folder, transfer the plugins from directory one by one to check the conflicting module.

ii. You can change the design of your theme from your admin panel, this helps most of the time, or you can change the name of your server to the default, it will also restore your website in live mode.

This is not a complete list of errors that may occur in WordPress, but these are the most common error. A general solution for all the WordPress error is to avoid incorrect configurations, it is not a rocket science to learn about configuration, more than 90% steps in WordPress are automated, all you have to do is pay attention. Avoid not worthy plugins, do not play with codes, and the most important thing is updating, do not skip any recommended updates of WordPress.

In the end I always said the same thing 🙂 To answer all your questions and comments is my high priority.
