Website Tips

  • Simple Points to Consider to Secure Joomla

    A lot of Australian organisations now rely on Web 2.0 development, and manual programming is rarely practised these days. If you’re using Joomla, a popular content management system (CMS), to publish your website’s frontend, you’ll find that it’s still imperfect but it’s better than other CMSs. But like websites built using other systems, you need to make sure your Joomla site is secure. Here are easy ways to protect your Joomla website.

  • Website Platform Migration: Guide and StrategyWebsite Platform Migration: Guide and Strategy

    Today I'm going to talk about website migration, and it's not the type of website migration where you're going from one host to another. Generally speaking, that's pretty straightforward and only requires potentially relicensing of software that you're using. What we're going be talking about is migrating platforms. So you might be on Joomla and you migrate into WordPress; you're on WordPress, you're migrating to Joomla. Or, you're just migrating to a really, really new version of WordPress and you're on a really, really old version. Or, you might not even know what WordPress and Joomla are, and you just know that you're changing and getting a new website. Either way, if you've had any sort of traffic, you want to make sure that you are capturing those leads.

  • How Secure Is Your Website?Better Information Security for Accommodation Websites

    Australia’s hospitality industry is a perennial target of cybercriminals who will use any means necessary to gain valuable information. Some of their fraudulent activities are spoofing your website and creating fake accommodation deals.

There are a lot more of these illegal activities that only an IT security consultant company may be able to identify for you.

  • How to Avoid Plagiarism on Your Blog or Website

    How to Avoid Plagiarism on Your Blog or Website

    If you're still on holidays, you might be writing up some new content for your website. Even if you're not on holidays, it's a very sensible idea to do this, because the Google search engine rankings will go through the roof when they see a lot of changing content on your website. Whatever you do, don't steal other peoples content. You want to write it yourself. I know you're busy, it happens, but if you don't have time to write yourself you can outsource work.

    How to Get a Fast Website 

    Speed up your website. Come on guys, you've got to do this! So many people that we see, so many companies that we deal with have these websites that load so slowly. Seriously, if your website loads slowly, people aren't going to go there. You're better off just not having a website at all. Imagine if you had a business card. You go to hand it to someone, but it was written on a napkin. That would be so embarrassing!

  • Are you struggling with a slow Internet connection in Australia?

    The internet is just so slow. I can't even download this document! Netflix isn't streaming, how am I going to Netflix and chill? I'm just going to have to settle with chilling, I guess. So, internet speeds do go up and down depending on peak times and things like that, but it can also be internal problems or factors with the systems and infrastructure that you're using. If you go to these websites, there's one called Oz-Speed-Test, and another one called Speedtest.net. You can actually use these tools to gauge how fast your internet is right now.

  • The Hidden Costs of Having a Websitewebsite design and development

    So I hear that you guys have just created a wicked awesome product that you're looking to sell online on the latest eCommerce platform. Now, whether you've been using Woocommerce, Shopify, or any of the other platforms, something needs to be said. The costs of these platforms might seem cheap at $20 a month or so, and that is cheap for the platform. You can't go wrong. Maybe your product is worth $50. You look at this and you go through the math in your mind. You're going, okay, $20 a month for the hosting, and then you have to develop a site. You have to promote the product and you might be going, okay, well how? How? How much is it going to cost me to continue having this site up and running?

  • Are You Using WordPress Plugin WooCommerce Abandoned Cart Lite?

    Australia is not an exemption to the 20,000 times and still growing worldwide downloads of the WordPress plugin called WooCommerce Abandoned Cart Lite. While WordPress quickly began to take the lead, leaving its competitors Drupal and Joomla, its plugin comes with an advantage and a disadvantage. As a plus, default functions go beyond its capabilities. However, it can pose risks to website security if not properly checked. It's useful but weak on cross-site scripting attempts.

  • Are You Using a Drag & Drop Website Builder?website development

     

    There’s a flaming campaign out at the moment about websites in Australia. I’m not gonna go into detail about what it is, but it sounds like something you’d use on a candle, like a wick. Well, if you had multiple candles maybe you’d call them wicks. Yeah, let’s call them wicks, like from candles. Ah, and I tell you what, candles smell good, but some of these websites that can be made are flaming terrible. Flaming, flaming, flaming, flaming rubber snake. What the hell is going on?

    Why You Must Update Your Website Regularly

    We're going to be talking about websites and why building a website isn't just a once off activity. A lot of business owners build a website, and they think, "oh, okay, it's made, it's done and it's finished."They think of it like it is a book. But the problem is that it isn't like a book. It's more like a car. When you make a car sometimes it works really well but sometimes it doesn't.
