WordPress Hosting :: What is a Blog and what are the advantages of using a paid blog service?

clock September 27, 2011 15:37 by author Administrator

Blog Hosting is one type of web hosting. Blogs, also known as weblogs are websites that feature regular updates in the form of individual entries, or posts. With the many different blog hosting options available nowadays, getting your blog set up can often seem like an overwhelming task.

What is a Blog?

A blog is an abbreviated version of "weblog", which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.

Blog Hosting: Features

Blog hosting is all about the features that allow you to install and/or use a blog-software such as WordPress, Typepad, b2evolution, Nucleus, etc. These features will include:

- Scripting support (ie. PHP)
- Database support (ie. MySQL)
- Large amounts of storage space and bandwidth
- Easy one-click install (ie. Fantastico)

Blog Hosting: Choosing a Blog Host

The first step in choosing a blog host is deciding whether you want to create a blog with free web hosting or invest in a paid blog hosting provider. If you are creating a personal blog to keep in touch with your family and friends, then a free blog hosting service would likely be sufficient for your needs. Free blog hosts, such as Blogger and WordPress.com, offer easy-to-use interfaces that make it simple for people with limited technical skills to start blogging. There is no script installation or database configuration - as the blog software is all setup and ready for you.

Most free blog hosting options also provide a limited selection of templates so you can alter the look of your blog to better suit your personal tastes. You won't be able to remove ads from the site, however, since this is the primary way free blog hosts generate revenue.

For bloggers who are hoping to turn their blog into a source of supplemental income, it's best to invest in paid blog hosting. With a paid account, you will have your own domain and greater options for customizing your blog. If you want to run ads on your site, you will be the one who keeps the income generated. You will also be able to accommodate larger amounts of traffic. Many paid blog hosting providers offer easy one-click installation for major blog softwares, so you can get your blog up and running in just a few clicks.

Blog Hosting: WordPress

With the use of plugins, free and paid, you can extend your site and nearly anything that can be done within a web site, like a static website, forum, photo gallery, job boards, eCommerce site and more. One of the web host that provides WordPress service is ASPHostCentral.com and you can start from as low as $4.49/month to host your first blog.

 


Joomla 1.6 Hosting with ASPHostCentral.com

What To Expect

Joomla 1.6 requires PHP 5.2 or above, and MySQL 5.0.4 or above. According to Ric Shreves, a partner at Water and Stone, "The new version addresses some of the system's most serious limitations, in particular, limited user management and content hierarchies

The changes that he considered particularly significant include:
- An improved menu manager
- Much more granular control for user management
- Improved content hierarchies
- Code clean-ups, dropping the package size by about 30%

Other major changes, according to the Joomla 1.6 roadmap, include:
- A new JForm library package
- A simple method of providing translation using JavaScript
- New controller dispatchers for more robust request routing
- Create and standardize several new event triggers
- Create a JContent class that can be used by content plug-ins and views
- Complete the new extension updater

The Access Control Changes: A Closer Look

The Access Control List (ACL) changes involved building a new access control system that allowed adding of new groups, access levels and setting new "view" fields for articles at minimum. In order to accomplish this, the new ACL admin area offers you three types of rules, the ability to create new user groups and to create new access levels

The types of rules are:
- Type 1 - Permissions related to actions, such as managing languages and the installer
- Type 2 - Permissions related to content, such as adding and publishing articles
- Type 3 - Permissions related to actions related to access levels, such as allowing the public to view all articles

When configuring the rules, you select from the existing user groups (say, Editor, and Administrator) and assign the permissions this set of groups should have (say, the ability to manage categories, articles and the front page).

What Extension Maintainers Need To Know


Extension maintainers probably want to test their existing versions against the pre-release. In particular, Joomla 1.5 extensions that are "truly native" will require the least work to convert them to Joomla 1.6. Those whose extensions require legacy mode in order to run will no longer be able to rely on doing so. These extensions must be updated for Joomla 1.6 or they won't work anymore
