Domain’s Demystified

For most people, choosing the perfect domain name for their site/blog is incredibly difficult. A good domain name can mean the difference between a thriving site, and a dead one which inevitably translates to: revenue and no revenue.

So how do you choose a good domain name? How do you increase traffic and ensure that your site is higher ranked on search engines? Well read below for a few tips and explanations on the various features of domains.

Different types of domains – .com, .ca, .org, .net, etc.
If getting traffic to your site is a top priority for you then using a .com domain name is essential. The increased price is due to the fact that many people realize that when someone does a google search the .com domain names are generally higher up in the Google search listing as apposed to others. .org and .net however are two other domain types that fare well on Google.

Where to buy cheap domain names
There are numerous places that allow you to purchase and register your domain name, but finding the best one, at the lowest price, can be somewhat of a hassle. The trick with buying a .com domain is to look for specials that the leading sellers are having.

One of the more reliable sites is www.GoDaddy.com. They have sales throughout the year and can offer .com domain’s for as low as $1.99. Some other great places to purchase domains are www.active-domain.com and www.domain.com.

My favorite place to pick domains is www.namecheap.com . Unlike GoDaddy, you’ll not be bombarded with confusing and deceptive adverts, and is very easy to navigate once you are logged in to your account.

Tips on picking an effective domain name
First step to picking a successful domain name for your site/blog is to look at other successful sites. You will notice that most of those domains are short, simple, and something memorable. Long domain names have a huge disadvantage so you want to keep yours as short as you can but not too short.

Another issue you may run into is hyphens. There are some pros and cons when it comes to hyphens in a domain name and you need to carefully evaluate your site needs and see which will be more beneficial to you.
Pros – Your non hyphenated name may have been taken so adding a hyphen means you’ll get the name you want. Also, this makes it easier for Google and other search engines to utilize key words in your domain so it ranks higher.
Cons – How are people supposed to spread your website through word of mouth? Having a hyphen in your domain name will make it really difficult for people to not only remember, but advise for others. If people forget the hyphen they will end up at your competition’s site.

Premium Domains
On sale the cheap .com domains will only be a few bucks, but usually you can find them for under ten dollars at any time. However, when you are looking at domains you will see that some domains are premium. These mean that it is a high traffic domain and will get your site ranked higher up on Google just by the domain name itself. These quality domains can lead to thousands of dollars in revenue but can also cost a pretty penny as well. Here are a few ‘premium’ domain names so that you can get a glimpse at some of the money used to procure a decent domain.

WordPress.com

The basic difference between WordPress.com and WordPress self hosted solution (downloadable from WordPress.org) is that your blog will be hosted on the servers provided by WordPress (an organization started and run by Matt and wordpress is free) and you can enjoy all of the preset templates, easy to use control panel, and efficient blogging tools as you create your own site. Below is a list of the main pro’s and con’s for WordPress.com:

Pros

  • Free and easy to set up with tutorials and guides available.
  • WordPress automatically backs up your blogs, updates itself, guards against spam, and has a secure login.
  • You host on WordPress servers which is much easier since you don’t have to maintain it.
  • WordPress uses hundreds of servers so your blog will likely never go down.
  • You can get additional traffic from various features on WordPress such as ‘blogs of the day’ and more.

Cons

  • You can’t install plugins (plugins are an EXTREMELY useful tool and add limitless customization and personalization).
  • You have to pay a significant amount of money for a ‘premium’ account.
  • Your domain name will be a sub-domain, so the URL will look something like : <subdomain>.wordpress.com , which may not suit you if you are planning to start the blog for official / professional intent.
  • And yeah, you cannot have ads on the site, not even Google Adsense.

WordPress.org

The downloadable WordPress package from WordPress.org is for people who are a bit more technically savvy and have their own means of hosting. It is generally used by people who want a successful site and plan on using ads, and a lot of customization instead of the standard blog. Take a look at the pros and cons below:

Pros

  • You are able to download Plugins! These are an incredibly useful feature as they can literally have ANY function!
  • Limitless customization opportunities with downloadable themes, ability to completely create your own theme, and plugins that can add buttons, forums, and even customize each page.
  • You can use your own domain and rid yourself of the annoying ‘WordPress.com’ brand.

Cons

  • You have to host your site yourself which generally cost anywhere between $5-$12 a month or more.
  • You have to back up your blog and manage all of it yourself without the aide of WordPress
  • If you have a high traffic site then your private server might not be enough to handle it and will crash.
  • If you have no skill with computers and applications like WordPress you will likely mismanage your blog and it will fail.

As you can see there are significant differences between both WordPress.com and WordPress.org. Each one maintains strong positive features but you, as the user, need to identify your specific needs and choose one wisely. Whichever you decide will limit your blog in certain ways which could be good or bad.

Embed Higher Quality YouTube Video Clips On Websites or Blogs

Technique for Embedding Higher Quality YouTube Video Clips On Websites or Blogs

While watching video clips on YouTube website, you can choose to view the videos in higher quality of resolution. It is also possible that you make settings so that YouTube will playback the video clip with the same high resolution quality automatically.

But, when it comes to YouTube video clips which are embedded on web pages or blogs, there is no flexibility to upgrade or switch the video-clip playback to high resolution quality. However, bloggers or webmasters can embed a high resolution code onto the website so as to allow the visitors to view the videos in high resolution mode.

Webmasters can follow the below mentioned hack to embed a code for high resolution video streaming which will stream as MP4 (H.264 Video with AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) audio) and will be encoded at a resolution of 480×360.  

This is very much similar to the hack used to view high resolution video clips on YouTube with &fmt=6 or &fmt=18 switch wherein the publisher requires to attach a suitable switch to YouTube embed code for the Flash Player to understand that the video has to be played with high resolution video streaming.

However, just adding the default flag “&fmt=18” at the end of the URL in the address bar won’t work. In the embed code, you need to add “&ap=%2526fmt%3D18” at the end of the URL of the video clip specified in “embed src” and “param value”.

You need to append “&ap=%2526fmt%3D18” at the end of the video clip URL “http://www.youtube.com/v/xxxxxxxxxxx&hl=en&rel=0” at two instances in the embed code, where, xxxxxxxxxxx is nothing but unique video ID.

For e.g. If the URL of the video clip is “http://www.youtube.com/v/_w0AwGCjqnw&hl=en&rel=0”, the embed code will look like:

<object width=”425? height=”344?><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/_w0AwGCjqnw&hl=en&rel=0&ap=%2526fmt%3D18?></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/_w0AwGCjqnw&hl=en&rel=0&ap=%2526fmt%3D18? type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”425? height=”344?></embed></object>

Visitors will be able to enlarge the high quality YouTube video to the width equal to “480” without affecting the picture quality since the high resolution streaming video is been encoded at a resolution of 480×360.

With the arrival of High Definition (HD) era, YouTube is also able to playback the hosted videos at 720p HD picture quality resolution which is quite close to CD audio quality.
