Tips And Tricks


 

301 Redirect

People access your site through several different URLs. If, for example, your home page can be reached in multiple ways - for instance, http://example.com/home, http://home.example.com, or http://www.example.com - it's a good idea to pick one of those URLs as your preferred (canonical) destination, and use 301 redirects to send traffic from the other URLs to your preferred URL. You can also use google Webmaster Tools to set your preferred domain for google search engine. 

Add the below code to .htaccessit will ensure that all your directories and pages of your http://example.com will get correctly redirected to http://www.example.com.


Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^example.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [r=301,nc]
 
 

Please replace example.com and www.example.com in the above code with your actual domain name.
Note* This .htaccess method of redirection works ONLY on Linux servers having the Apache Mod-Rewrite moduled enabled.


 

Make your own auto surf

This script will surf your webpages

Make a html file using the following code:-




<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> 
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> 
<title> Autosurf </title> 

<style type="text/css"> 
* {
margin:0;
padding:0;
border:0;
}
html, body, iframe {
height:100%;
width:100%;
overflow:hidden;
}
</style> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
var pages = new Array(2); //amount of webpages
pages[0]="Url 1";
pages[1]="Url 2";
pages[2]="Url 3";

var time = 30; //set time to rotate

var i = 1;
function setPage()
{
if(i == pages.length)
{
i = 0;
}
document.getElementById('holder').setAttribute('src',pages[i]);
i++;
}
setInterval("setPage()",time * 1000);

</script> 
</head> 

<body> 
<iframe id="holder" src="Url 1" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"> 
</iframe> 
</body> 
</html> 

You may apply this script with random webpages. So, your Url will be 
http://www.yourdomain.com/random_page.html 


 

Backup your Website

The backup tool that is provided by cPanel is very resource intensive, that often causes outages to other customers due to high I/O usage during the compression of files. This was disabled for the best interest of service uptime and reliability. We takes nightly backups that are retained for 24 hours for disaster recovery purposes only. This is intended strictly in the case of emergencies, such as file system failures or mass data loss as a result of a system failure. It is strongly recommended and is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they maintain accurate and up-to-date backups of their web site files, databases and e-mails.

How can I back up my web site?
It’s important that you know what you’re backing up first. If you’re running a content management system, such as Drupal, WordPress or any web site that runs a database, you’ll have to back up the database as well. If you’re running a simple web site, you’ll have to just back up the web site files. 
 

Step #1 – Backing up Website files

 

In order to backup your files, we recommend that you use FTP and copy the whole public_html directory from your web hosting account to your local PC. We recommend using FileZilla to transfer (copy) your web site files to your local PC. Here is a tutorial on how to use the software: http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Using You may compress your file then download

 

Login Cpanel Control go to> File Manager

 

file manager cpanel

 

> Home Directory >GO

 

Home Directory

 

> Select all >Compress > Download compress file

 

Download compress file

 

Important folders to download from the root folder of your account: mail (location of all your stored e-mails) public_html (location of all your stored website files)


 

Step #2 – Backing up Databases

 

Login to your cPanel account and click on the phpMyAdmin icon located under the databases section.

 

phpMyAdmin

 

Select the database you wish to backup in the drop-down database selection box on the left Click the Export Tab towards the top of the interface. This will take you to the Export page with a lot of options Click “Select All”. This ensures that all the tables in the database is included. Select “SQL” in the Export box

 

Export tables in the database

 

Ensure that “Structure” is selected, then make sure the “Add Auto_Increment” and “Enclose Table and Field Name with Backquotes” boxes are ticked. Make sure “Data is selected, check “Hexadecimal for Binary Field” and set the Export type to “Insert”. Select “Save as File” then click “Go”. You will be prompted to save the database to your computer.


 

Google Analytics without Javascript

Google Analytics will not work, If user use browser with javascript disabled (NoScript addon).Google Analytics will not track visits on JavaScript disabled website. 
You may add this code in body of your webpage <body> </body> 

<img src="http://nojsstats.appspot.com/UA-123456/yourwebsite.com" /> 

Please replace UA-123456 with your property ID and yourwebsite.com with your website URL, You can refer to: http://nojsstats.blogspot.com/ for additional information on how to track hits with just an IMG tag. 
We have tested this method and it works. 


 

Enabled gzip compression

Compressing your website pages on the server is a great way to improve your site speed overall.
So if you set up your web server to deliver compressed files the majority of your readers will receive compressed files,
greatly improving their delivery speed.

In Apache, enabled gzip compression by adding the following to your .htaccess file:
 

 

 # compress text, html, javascript, css, xml:
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript

# Or, compress certain file types by extension:
< files *.html> 
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
< /files>  

 



Verify Your Compression 
Once you've configured your server, check to make sure you're actually serving up compressed content.
Online: Use the online gzip test to check whether your page is compressed.

How to add Apache Module mod_expires

Add Apache Module mod_expires to your .htaccess

When visiting a website, the website will cache in your browser. This cache can be controlled by configuring your Cache-Control HTTP headers for your website This is done by adding mod_expires in the .htaccess file of your server. If you don't set your Cache-Control for the HTTP headers, then, you will have a longer wait times when visiting your website. Each time your website is accessed without Cache-Control, your website has to make a request to the server for each image, javascript file, CSS file, and so forth to load.In order to add browser caching to your website, you will need to set the date for when the cache expires. This cache code is placed in the .htaccess found in your public_html folder. You will need to edit your .htaccess file.

Add the following code to .htaccess file and save it.

<IfModule mod_expires.c> 
ExpiresActive on
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/x-ico "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 14 days"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 14 days"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 14 days"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 14 days"
ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 14 days"
</IfModule>


 

Now your site will set the time each for each resource that was added to the .htaccess to expire.

Recommended Expire date ranges

You do not want to set your expire times for your cache to unrealistic settings. If you keep the cache to a maximum of a year and a minimum of a month, you should have your browser caching working optimized for your site.Set your images to a long expire time like "access plus 1 year". Images take more time to load and are updated less frequently than other files
Make your CSS, HTML, and Javascript expire at a minimum of a month like "access plus 1 month". CSS, HTML and JavaScript's typically are updated more when developing a site than the sites images.
Keep your cache expire date at most a year.
