  Is your web site ready for its visitors?

Overview

There's a great interest among the Internet entrepreneurs about how to promote their business on the Web. There's always a quest for new and innovative ways of promotion that promise greater results at lower cost and in shorter time. Yet with all the efforts spent on promotion it's just amazing how many people totally ignore one basic question- is their website worth promoting? With new computer technologies and high speed connections the new age on the Internet has arrived- the age that redefined the criteria of a successful web site, which satisfies demands of its visitors.

Content is the king

That was the mantra of all web masters for a long time. Just show your visitors some interesting stuff, give them a better deal – and your success is guaranteed. The truth is – it doesn't work that way. The content alone cannot win you the hearts and minds... Read Full Post

  Current page higlighting with CSS

First we'll set up our navigation list. I have chosen 4 sections for ease, and its best if navigation sections are kept short anyway:

<ul id="navlist">
<li><a href="index.html" >Home</a></li>
<li><a href="products.html">Products</a></li>
<li><a href="faq.html">FAQ</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.html">contact us</a></li></ul>

Next we need to add a unique class or id (doesn't really matter which) to each of the section pages:

<ul id="navlist">
<li><a href="index.html" id="homenav">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="products.html" id ="prodnav">Products</a></li>
<li><a href="faq.html" id ="faqnav">FAQ</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.html"... Read Full Post

  Towards Next Generation URLs

Keep them short and sweet.

The first path to better URLs is to design them properly from the start. Try to make the site directories and file names short but meaningful. Obviously, /products is better than /p, but resist the urge to get too descriptive. Having www.xyz.com/productcatalog doesn't add much meaning (if a user looks for a product catalog, they might well expect to find it at or near the top-level products page), but it does needlessly restrict what the page can reasonably contain in the future. It's also harder to remember or guess at. Shoot for the shortest identifiers consistent with a general description of the page's (or directory's) contents or function.

Avoid punctuation in file names.

Often designers use names like product_spec_sheet.html or product-spec-sheet.html. The underscore is often difficult to notice and type, and these connectors are usually a sign of a carelessly designed site structure. They are only required because... Read Full Post

  Top 10 IIS Tips

Generally, the discussion about Web administration starts with all the various security holes that plague IIS and the negative press the platform has garnered over the last year. Then it invariably moves to a discussion about how Netcraft and other stats sites show Apache as the dominant server on the Web, how a certain big site uses Apache, or how there are so many cool modules to add to Apache.

Pointing out that scads of non-identified corporate in-house servers run IIS; that it, too, is a free server (as it comes with the operating system); or that there are in fact plenty of cool add-ons for IIS (including many that Read Full Post

  IIS Security Checklist

The following checklist is a summary of the security points which should be checked prior to bringing an IIS server online. In cases where these points are not followed, the admin may want to securely document the known security issues for referral should a security compromise occur.

General assumptions:

q       No IIS on a domain controller

q       Install only services needed (ftp, www, smtp,... Read Full Post

  Create Dynamic Sub-domains in Windows IIS using IIS and ISAPI_Rewrite

Create Dynamic Sub-domains in (Windows/IIS) using ISAPI_Rewrite

Introduction

Do you have a web site that is hosted on a Windows Server that has been growing and now it makes more sense to redefine the architecture and separate that web site into subdomains? In this article, we will be discussing two methods of setting this up. And later in the article, we'll provide you with a comparison analysis and our conclusions.

Requirements

  1. Ability to update DNS records
  2. IIS web server admin... Read Full Post
