I have heard that question twice in as many days. It's not an uncommon question anyway from teachers, clubs, and students, but there seems to be even more interest than usual from folks who don't have the first idea about web design or hosting. Most of us either host a site or have one associated with our domain. Obviously, university sites tend to be fairly extensive; sites for primary and secondary schools can vary from the incredibly professional to a quick page of contact information. However, whatever the situation, there are several options for helping your users get up and running, none of which involve you teaching your users HTML. For well-established sites, there are going to be templates, designers, and even tools for creating pages within site guidelines. Where things become more challenging, though, is the random high school club that needs a web page or the parent group that wants to hang a few pages off your site. There are a lot of us who could very quickly put … [Read more...] about How do I make a website?
How to i make a website
One of the most significant announcements made around the turn of the year attracted very little attention at the time, despite its huge import for the way on-demand applications get created and marketed. I'm talking about Amazon DevPay. Silicon Valley's online chatterati didn't give it much of a second glance, but some of the developers I've been meeting with on my current visit here are digesting the implications with a growing sense of delight and awe. DevPay hasn't attracted a lot of commentary because the Web 2.0 crowd is still focused on trying to grow big and then get VC funded, rather than simply earning a living from revenue that can be collected today. The trouble with get-big-and-monetize-later as a strategy is that most of its proponents are doomed to fail, because by definition only a handful will reach the top of the pile. The VC route is the one that gets all the headlines because that's where the deals are done, but in reality it's not much better than pyramid … [Read more...] about How to really make money with Web 2.0
I sometimes wonder how the average consumer avoids going crazy when confronted with modern home networks. If you're lucky and your network is simple—a wireless router and a couple PCs—everything might just work. But if you're not lucky, or if your network is more complicated, then good luck. Weird, unpredictable problems arise when networks are involved, and things can get especially ugly when you add consumer-grade networking hardware and buggy firmware into the mix. That might seem a little extreme, but I’ll bet a lot of my readers can describe home networks that are almost as complex. And in an age of proliferating mobile devices, digital living rooms, and connected appliances, the challenges are only going to get worse. Earlier this month, I had a chance to experience some of those inscrutable network problems firsthand. I switched our slow but reliable Qwest DSL service for a much faster Comcast cable connection. I bought a Motorola Surfboard DOCSIS 3.0 cable … [Read more...] about How to wrestle with a home network and win

Microsoft offers Windows 10 as a free upgrade for computers running a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. Also, similar to previous releases, the operating system is available on different editions and two versions: 32-bit and 64-bit. While upgrading from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro is not free, what many people are unfamiliar with is that Microsoft won't ask for more money to upgrade from a 32-bit to a 64-bit version. However, the upgrade path only allows moving from a qualifying version to its equivalent edition on the same architecture. This limit means that if your PC is running a 32-bit version of Windows 8.1, after the upgrade you'll be stuck with the 32-bit version of Windows 10 -- even if your computer's processor can handle the 64-bit version. The only solution is to make a clean installation of the operating system and reconfigure all your apps and settings. In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to verify whether your computer in fact includes … [Read more...] about How to upgrade from a 32-bit to 64-bit version of Windows 10
You never can defend yourself too much while online.A flaw on eBay's website enabled a scam designed to trick people into handing over their personal information. eBay promptly patched the flaw, but experts I spoke with are wondering how long the fix will hold.The flaw allowed a scammer to use an increasingly common type of attack called cross-site scripting, or XSS, to redirect people from an eBay listing to a spoofed eBay site. Though eBay may have plugged the hole for now, experts say, similar problems have surfaced in the past on eBay and other sites, and it's a safe bet they will again. The problem is not going away, and it will continue to cause visitors to eBay and other sites trouble for the foreseeable future.How it workedOn a tip from a PC World reader, I reviewed the scam before eBay canceled the auction that it keyed to. Once potential victims were taken to the fake, or spoofed, eBay site, anyone interested in the item in the auction—a 1961 Volkswagen … [Read more...] about How to Avoid Being a Phishing Scam Victim
In October I discussed the way people tend to misinterpret phishing botnet statistics. The key point was that people saw that many of the phishing Websites were on Linux servers, and somehow leaped to the conclusion this meant Linux desktops were parts of the botnets sending out phishing emails. The truth is that the phishing Websites are where you are directed by the emails, which then infect your MS Windows computer, recruiting it into the phishing email botnet.Now, I'm going to tell you how you can increase your chances of staying out of the ranks of Webserver administrators whose Linux systems have been taken over by phishers.The details can be found in the article at Linux.com, Mystery infestation strikes Linux/Apache Web sites. If you just want the nitty-gritty, though, I'll summarize for you:Linux/Apache Webservers are being commandeered by phishers. Nobody's entirely sure of all the details yet, apparently, but it seems to involve replacements for specific binaries on the … [Read more...] about How to avoid being a phishing Webserver admin
Saving money may be a good enough reason to try a brand-new cloud storage service -- if it can deliver on its promises.That's the equation some enterprises may use when they look at Wasabi Technologies, an object storage startup that says it offers six times the performance of Amazon's S3 service at one-fifth the price. The service is available globally on Wednesday.The company, started by the co-founders of online backup provider Carbonite, says its single pool of capacity can deliver primary, secondary or archive data at a sustained-read speed of 1.3GB per second, versus 191MB per second at Amazon. Its durability is the same, Wasabi says.The cost? Just US$0.0039 per gigabyte, per month, compared with between $0.21 and $0.23 for the same on Amazon S3, Wasabi says.Still, enterprises may approach a new service like Wasabi with caution at first, Enterprise Strategy Group analyst Steve Duplessie said."I can see companies with huge data sets that have at least two copies in the cloud … [Read more...] about How to size up a new cloud service like low-priced Wasabi
Imagine if your website were to get shut down by your domain registrar. Thanks to a new requirement by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) — the governing body for all domain names — it could happen to anyone. Earlier this year, popular United Kingdom-based betting website Fixtures365.com went dark after making changes to its contact information. The company updated its street and email address, and 15 days later, the registrar pulled the plug. "The email-address change triggered the verification process at the registrar," said Michael Ward, chief operating officer at domain registrar and Web hosting company Directnic. "When the change had not been verified within the allotted time, the registrar suspended the domain name, causing it to shut down." ICANN's new rule went into effect Jan. 1. It states that ICANN accredited domain-name registrars that have signed the 2013 contract with ICANN must verify the email address or telephone number of its … [Read more...] about How to Stop New ICANN Rule From Shutting Your Website Down

Retailers put QR codes in print ads that customers can scan to learn more about the advertised product. Museums use QR Codes to offer more detailed information about exhibits.Sometimes you may encounter QR codes at random locations – may be on a street pole – that you are often tempted to scan.
