From The Clay Necessary To Mold to cPanel Security Risks

Congratulations to contest winnersA secondary title might be ‘knowing your prospect.”

A short synonym exercise ma be necessary in recognizing clay for
this post.

Depending on the stage of building strategies, it is best to choose
the right terms.

You presumably know more about your business, product, services
offered, and your customer, than anybody else.

Most people tend to think they do, anyways, yet their marketing is
no where near as effective as they would like it to be.

Who or what is the ‘clay’?

How do you refer to your members as … clients, customers, prospects,
leads, hits … etc.?

Have you created member records for those people that choose to join
you?

Who are you? Affiliate, business builder, entrepreneur, etc…?

What are their demographics? Other than the user name, email and
possible profile information they are willing to share in their accounts,
what else do you know about them?

If you have a poor understanding of who these people are, then how
can you write to them in an effective way, so they want to follow your
call to action?

This whole exercise is not about education. It is not about having a
degree in data processing, or being a collection agency member, it is
about using your smarts.

Your experience will give you more insights along with how you
choose to get to know, like and trust the people you meet on the
wide net.

cPanel Security Risks

When is the last time you logged into your cpanel?

Hackers everywhere seem to be hell bent on causing frustration for
all online users. Our server was no exception.

That is why you must now log in to your cPanel using a secure connection.
Yes, this will require you to grant a security exception to logging into
your cPanel this way but it for your own protection.

Just maybe you cannot access your cpanel? Woe be it for you not to
be paying attention to Cogs and Logs posts relating to the latest server
security enhancements.

If your website is hosted by ViralHost, your cPanel password did change.

Please submit a ViralHost support ticket to have your new password
emailed to you. Make sure you specify an email address that is not on
your domain so you can retrieve that information.

You will also be forced to create a new password once you access your
cPanel with the new password we send to you. Just an extra security
precaution to keep your data safe.

BEWARE

Your cPanel password should not be an easily identified set of characters
such as birthdays. Make it something strong. We suggest you use the
password generator provided in your cPanel to create a strong password
that is not easily guessed by hackers.

It should be a combination of letters, numbers and special characters.
Easy to remember passwords are dangerous and can cost you your web
site!

You should also make it a habit to regularly change your cPanel
password to keep your account safe from hackers.

When is the last time you checked your websites files and folders to
make sure nothing is in there you don’t want?

If you see something strange – delete it! Then change your cPanel
password right then – don’t put it off.

How about the passwords for your email accounts listed on your
domain? They need to be changed on a regular basis as well. The
same security precautions apply there as well as your cPanel
password – don’t make it something easy for a hacker or spammer
to guess.

When you access your email accounts listed in your cPanel via the
web, you will also notice it is now a secure connection and will
require you to grant a security exception to access.

This goes hand in hand with with normal security precautions on
your personal computer; protecting yourself from viruses and Trojans.

Don’t let your information fall into the wrong hands or even worse,
let someone change your website for you.

Simple security measures we have outined above will go a long ways
in protecting your website investment of time and money.

It is your property, make sure you protect it!

Some very good advice offered in this guest post. George is your last
call to get your accounts out of the mess you may be responsible for
creating. Give him a helping hand.

Read the above post THREE times then make notes on what he suggests
you need to do then do it!

Till next time …

Quantserve Virus Prevention And Contest Results

The journey that spells success is targeted to winContents:
Day Two Surf Contests Results
Quantserve Virus –

It’s day two – you a surf winner?

Imagine joining hundreds of Traffic Exchanges then finding each one will hold a surf contest you need to support?

Well if you joined hundreds, you are getting what you asked for. Frustration overload. Time to play ostrich – hide your head for fear someone may find out you cannot manage them all.

Less is MORE

Meantime keeping your TE master
list down to 10 you work seriously
until you prove there are ones not
interested in what you have to offer
then replace them from your stash.

Prioritize, test, test and test then
think time to replace one or two to
do next test test test.

That is what we are doing with our
Surfing Contests. Are you taking
advantage to know if they will
work for you?

Congratulations to all the winners.
Day Three – final surf day is underway.

Dangerous – common Quantserve Virus

It is dangerous because it places virus on
your computer with your permission. It
is common because a lot of people use
what they think is a tracking script.

It is a download you accept as a pop up
from Hyperpromote.com.

QuantCast claims it is a page Tracker,
but a look at the Quantserve.com it
downloads as a javascript file, NOT a
text cookie.

You will know by the QuantCast tag
in it. Easiest way to control it?
Make sure you add this to all your
browsers.
http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

It will list the programs currently using
this dangerous script. Check one, or
check all and click your ok and it is done.

Cogs & Logs Blogging Part III

004_42One of the more difficult decisions for new bloggers to make is do they go free or professional?

So let’s get down and dirty and do some logical thinking. The only real thing you need on line to succeed is a domain name and hosted property.

Seriously, if you plan on being around for any length of time and the idea of income is floating past your eyeballs then this IS the only step you need to take to determine your blogging future and how it will fit in creating you and the desired income you have always wanted.

You are always going to have the terms FREE and professionall tossed in your face. There is a lot of good on both sides if you are careful BUT … there are horror stories. Read on.

Here is the skinny on why FREE just won’t cut it.

Lots of hosting companies provide you with FREE hosting to carry Blogger or WordPress blogs. The conditions are clear though.

TERMS of SERVICE lump all parts of your blog name and tools together and state quite clearly  “The Website is owned and operated by Company name terms supplying the hosting.”

The horror stories are not funny for the people caught up in choosing free hosting. For as many times as you will read it recommended that if you are just starting out, then choosing Blogger and Google hosting can see like a great deal.

So what is the problem?

It’s their prerogative to tag your site as spam and shut you down without any chance of recovering your data.

Once you build a following, and your posts are regular, they will suggest it is time for you to upgrade. IF you monetize and begin to make any sum of money that request will come sooner with the warning you either upgrade with them or they will have no choice but to shut your blog down.

What if you do not like their upgrade hosting terms?  You can feel free to walk away but not take your blog with you, One thing left out of most of these FREE blog hosting offers is the use of a cPanel. No cPanel and you cannot back up your blog.

IF you choose to go free then do read the fine print BEFORE you take the leap of faith. The TOS or Terms of Agreement are your contract with the company providing FREE hosting.

You have all the responsibility for content, visitors, comments etc. And the ‘Company’ has the right to change that content if it is not in agreement with it, alter or remove entirely, keywords of your choice for theirs. AND they hold the ultimate right to shut down your blog for real or imagined infractions that break their Terms of Agreement.

WE Choose WordPress Professional

ALL our Blogs are WordPress Professionally hosted on ViralHost.  It is what I would strongly recommend any NEW blogger do from the get go. Be professional. Whatever your intent is for the moment, it can change. The idea of facing future transitions and possible loss of your data is unthinkable.

Start in the right position, from the very beginning and never look back!

Hosting your WordPress Blog with ViralHost means your content is your own. Moving in or moving on, our support people will make your actions super easy.

Our CHEAPEST ViralHost hosting package begins at $5.95 a month. Before you hmm your way into other companies charging less, you need to compare the perks. Including the kind of support that does not ask you to use your credit card for answers.

All our blogs come with their own cPanel. That is each one is carefully set up to be singularly intelligent – meaning the name, values and content can each be relevant to their own specific theme.

We also do daily backups of your site. Never lost time or data. The bandwidth is clearly stated. NO UNLIMITED as we could do like others. Here you understand what UNLIMITED really means.

WordPress Choices

WordPress offers two formats for your choice. We recommend you choose to host a professional version on ViralHost.com and in doing so, we will guide you through the proper installation and help you get set up and running with full control of your blog.

It is not always the time it takes to set up a blog but spending the right amount of time to make sure the installation is ready to accept the plugins and layout you wish to work with.

Security

The major concern in setting up any blog is security. That alone suggests your safest route is on a hosted site where you have the necessary control.  Your site with ViralHost is hosted on our servers spread across several data centers making it super fast, secure and always available.

The security ‘holes’ referred to often come from the free versions posted who knows where. With ViralHost, we’ve got your back!

There will always be problems, from niggly to serious that will pay off handsomely to  have your blog on a hosted site.  It really pays to have the right kind of support behind your efforts.

Championing the Attitude Vital To Harvesting Closely-Guarded Secrets

Championing the Attitude Vital To Harvesting
Closely-Guarded Secrets

A major issue in respect to consistent
sales and conversions, appears to be
directly related to how you treat or
fail to treat a new subscriber/client.

Little things like good record keeping;
who is this new contact? Organization
of daily activities so that the important
issues are prioritized to the head of the
list. Connecting with each new person.

The month of April is referral based and
is designed to help you reach a broader
membership base in order to create a
LESS is MORE atmosphere of exciting
income creation.

Instead, a shocking look at the stats shows
you are bringing them in. What is mind-
blowing is your failure to reap the rewards
of your hard work. There appears to be a
need for a little housekeeping of habits.

News Bits:
Over heard  Jitters squeak ~ said there is a
special credit sell back deal on the table.
