Internet trends have boomed in popularity and are creating more opportunities for both commercial and non-commercial sectors. Most people will not submit their private details on the web unless they know the transaction/information they provide would be secure. The best way to provide web security and gain more customers is by installing an SSL certificate to prove the legitimacy of your website. SSL Certificates  deliver you Industry standard security and are trusted by 99.3% of the current browsers.

Most SSL Certificates from vendors like http://www.sozohosting.com/contact/SSLCertificates.cfm support 99.3% of Web Browsers including:  Internet Explorer 5.01 and above, Netscape 4.77 and above, Firefox 0.1 and above, Mozilla 0.6 and above, AOL 5 and above, Opera 8 and above, Safari 1.2 and above.  You can buy specialized SSL Certificates from some vendors for support for Browsers before the year 2000 however they are a lot more expensive.

Moving SSL Certificates

posted by sozoadmin
Mar 9

If you are a purchaser of an SSL certificate, yes you usually can ask your new hosting provider to see if they can send you a CSR that you take to your SSL Certificate issuer and ask them to regenerate a new SSL certificate to be installed on your new hosting location.  Install charges usually apply.

SSL Certificates sometimes have to be moved from one server to another server.  This tip is for Windows Hosting Engineerings.  Follow these steps to move an SSL certificate from 1 windows server to another windows server when both are IIS 6:  http://www.sslshopper.com/move-or-copy-an-ssl-certificate-from-a-windows-server-to-another-windows-server.html Use this link from move an SSL certificate from 1 windows server II6 to another windows server with IIS 7:  http://www.sozohosting.com/knowledge/moving-SSL-certificates.cfm

SSL is all about security encryption. It creates an encrypted link between a SoZo Hosting Inc. web server and a user’s web browser. The link ensures that all information passed between the SoZo Hosting Inc.’s web server and user’s web browser remains private and secure and is recognized by millions of consumers by a secure padlock which appears in their web browser. The link uses an SSL Certificate that you have to purchase. SSL certificate are digital signature files and installed on web servers.

This simple fact allows e-Business providers an opportunity to leverage that increased trust level to turn visitors into paying customers. SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data, first a public key known to everyone and the second is the private key known only to the recipient. SSL an unique and effective way to achieve data/ecommerce security.

If you have an ecommerce site, a web site with a login screen or save confidential information, then yes we recommend you add an SSL certificate to your site. You buy SSL certificates to cover a period of time. Here are are some prices and time frames: http://www.sozohosting.com/contact/SSLCertificates.cfm as if you are not sure of the success of your ecommerce site, then start off with a 1 year certificate. Buying certificates to cover more than 1 year will give you a better discount.

SEO Tip 26: Major search engines look at hyperlinks and the words in the hyperlinks. You should have many hyperlinks to each of your pages but remember to use your keywords in these hyperlinks. Use anchor text not only for links to other pages on your site but also to other web pages outside your site that someone else owns (ie blogs, articles and other web sites that have information about your web site.) Remember to stay with a few main keywords or 1 or 2 phrases and use those consistently throughout your web site rather than trying to use 50 to 100 keywords as too many keywords does not help your rankings.   Use your keywords in  your hyperlinks if you can.  Do not use link farms.

Make sure all the words in your title are all essential. Some search engines only look at the first 50 characters in the Title tag. Standardization groups are trying to set the number of characters in a title tag to 64 characters. Other search engines look at the first 100 characters in the title tag. Therefore we recommend you add 100 characters in your title tag and make sure the essential keywords are in the first 50 characters of the title tag on your web site. If you dont know what your meta title tag is for a page on your web site, go to this link: http://www.freesitemetrics.com and enter the URL of your web site.

Here you go — free on us — compliments of http://www.sozohosting.com/ and also compliments of http://www.biznesstechnologies.com/ :

SEO Tip 23: The major search engines look at words and higher word count on your web site for your keywords will assist in getting higher rankings in their search engines. Therefore we recommend you look at what is your main message/benefit you are trying to convey to the world and come up with 3 or 4 keywords that describe your business or web site theme. Try to make these 3 or 4 words unique to your business (or use 1 or 2 phrases). If you use common every day words then you will be buried under the tons of sites that use those same common words. Use your 3 or 4 unique words (or use 1 or 2 phrases) often in text descriptions on your web site. Check out on Google how unique your keywords are as you might be surpised to find thousands of others using those same keywords.  Use leywords in your alt tages of your images as well as your h1 headers.

Do not abuse the use of these keywords trying to add hidden keywords or repetitive blocks of keywords over and over as the major search engines are looking for this and if there is an overkill of keyword stuffing then they will penalize you for this in their rankings.

Here you go — free on us — compliments of http://www.sozohosting.com/ and also compliments of http://www.biznesstechnologies.com/ :

SEO Tip 22: Here is an overview of 3 Major Meta tags for each of your web pages:

Meta Title: The Meta Title tag is used to declare the title of the page. Some search engines look at the first 50 characters, some the first 100. So make your Title about 100 characters long with your keywords in the first 50 characters. Html code example: META NAME=”Title” CONTENT=”Page title here”.  This Title is VERY important as the words in the title are weighed more in search results in the major search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo.

Meta Description: The Meta Description tag gives a description of the web page. The Meta Description tag is a short, description of the web page, usually 25 words or less. Html code example: META NAME=”description” CONTENT=”Your description sentence here”.  This description is VERY important as it shows up in the description for web surfers to read in the search results in the major search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo.

Meta Keywords: The Meta Keywords tag is used to list keywords that define the content of your site. Keywords are used by search engines to properly index your site in addition to words from the title, document body, and other areas. Search engines are known to penalize or blacklist your site for abuse like keyword stuffing. Html code example: META NAME=”keywords” CONTENT=”keyword1, keyword2, keyword3,keyword4,keyword5,keyword6,keyword7,keyword8, keyword9,keyword10, keyword11,…”  The major search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo are not putting as much emphasis on this meta tag since people are stuffing it with too many words.  Instead they are looking more at the words in the web page itself.

SEO Tip 21: It is good to know what your competition is doing so look up their home sites on the web. You can go to sites called http://www.freesitemetrics.com or http://www.freesitecrawl.com , enter your competitors home page and look at their meta tags. Look at the tags and keywords and see if you can learn anything from them. Remember you can look but you cannot copy material from other web sites as that is violation of copyright laws. As you learn what others are doing ask yourself questions like:

A) When customers land on my site will they buy my services or are they confused what I am offering?
B) Is the content of my site old and stale and looks like something from the 1990s? Does it need a new fresh look with content of when our latest services were announced?
C) Is my site readable on Internet Mobile Devices?

Since many will not know what your new Brand Name is at the start, you may have to do some regular advertising to educate people what your Brand Name means.  Obviously get a brand name no one else has and buy that domain name for it to stop competition on it.

Tip 17: Make sure you site is submitted to at minimum 4 sites which will not cost you anything: Google.com, Yahoo.com, Bing.com, (Yahoo and Bing are combining), dmoz.org(recommended not to use your personal email when registering on dmoz.org but use a general email id). These 4 Search Engine sites will let you submit your web site to them for free. Google.com, Yahoo.com, and Bing.com all have PPC (Pay-Per-Click) Advertising programs which could work for you. Many small and mid-sized firms are getting frustration with the high PPC charges as for some words can cost you $20-40 for a single click to your site even by a competitor clicking on your ads to see what you are offering. You could use a non-PPC Advertising program. One we recommend is at a flat rate of $19.95/month and gives you: Unlimited clicks, Site Advertising, Product Advertising, and a separate customizable Ad page with index on 20+ different business directories.

Major search engines look at words and higher word count on your web site for your keywords will assist in getting higher rankings in their search engines. Therefore we recommend you look at all your html IMG (image tags) in your HTML pages and make sure every image tag has the ALT element in it which describes the image. In this ALT description of the image, add 1 or 2 of the keywords that makes your site unique as the major search engines will find these words in the ALT section of your images. Do not abuse the use of these keywords trying to add hidden keywords or repetitive blocks of keywords over and over as the major search engines are looking for this and if there is an overkill of keyword stuffing then they will penalize you for this in their rankings.

Help On Email Alerts For Cacti

In order to set email alerts in Cacti you need to install the Cacti Plugin Architecture. This can be found at http://docs.cacti.net/manual:087:1_installation.9_pia#installing_plugins, this is a good document for instructions on how to install and add plugins. Once this is installed be sure to go under the Utilities section of Cacti and select User Management. Once in User Management you will need to select the users you would like to have the ability to set Thresholds. You would do this by selecting the user, go to the realm permissions tab, then put a check on the Thresholds you would like to allow the user to have access to. Next hit save and you are done.

Also I found a little gotcha on the installation that had me stuck for a few hours. When you are on the final stages of the installation of the plugin architecture make sure you have the settings plugin installed. This plugin should be set in the config.php as ($plugins[] = ’settings’; ) . Also you do not need to add other plugins to the config.php , just load them in the /cacti/plugins directory . Then once they are there go to the configuration section , plugin management and the plugin will appear.

Database Back Ups With Maintenance Plans MS SQL 2005 and 2008

Using SQL Studio management tool you can set up a maintenance plan to back up all your databases nightly (or whatever schedule you want) onto another drive (preferable one on another server).

We recommend you select the option to do a FULL backup on ALL databases since you could add new databases later and this maintenance plan you set up will start backing up the new databases. Select the option to back up each database in a different folder. When you select the maintenance plan folder in the SQL Studio management tool, select the Maintenance Wizard to set up the automatic database back up plan and set a schedule on how often backups recur. The schedule will fire as long as you have SQL Server agent running. SQL Studio management tool will show you if SQL agent is running if you look on the menus on the lower left. If it is not running, then go to your control panel, then open up services for that server, and scroll down till you see SQL Server Agent. Right click on SQL Server Agent and set it to automatic and start it.

PS. Backing up databases is one thing but you should back up your web apps also which you would have a different process for. For critical apps make sure your back ups go off site.

What are the benefits of Cloud Hosting?

Scalability: IT departments that anticipate an increase in user load do not need to scramble to secure additional hardware and software with cloud computing. Instead, an organization can add and subtract capacity as its network load dictates.

Efficiency: Streamline the execution of IT management processes such as provisioning, system capacity management, system availability management, continuity management and service level management.

Implementation: Without the need to purchase hardware, software licenses or implementation services, a company can get its cloud-computing infrastructure up and running in record time — and for a fraction of the cost of an on-premise solution.

Business Needs: The ability to Rapidly provision additional capacity to meet changing business needs.

Writing SQL To Perform For Scalability

You should be using SQL Studio management tools such as a profiler and the query tool to analyze the Execution Plan Statistics of your SQL queries so start with the big queries first. If you are using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, run a query in the query window, then click on the “QUERY” menu at the top, and select the submenu “DISPAY ESTIMATED EXECUTION PLAN” option. This will bring up a new execution plan tab for you to look at all your SQL queries to make sure they perform. Look not only at the subtree costs but also for table scans. (Table scans are bad for performance). Correct the SQL with new table designs or new indexes and run the same steps above to optimze. Best to use the ACTUAL EXECUTION PLAN when you are finally done.

What is an SSL certificate and what is the difference between http:// and https:// for web site addresses?

You should never enter credit card information, or passwords or any other very confidential information on web sites that only start with http:// . https:// at the start of a web site address means an ssl certificate is installed on the site scrambling all transmissions of data you enter in that web site screen. An ssl certificate scrambles the data you enter and then unscrambles it to process it. (In coding language it is called encryption and decryption.) When you login into your account on a web page and see the web site address at the top of your browser changes to https://.. then you are safe with your transactions as you should also see a lock icon show up on your browser.

SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data, first a public key known to everyone and the second is the private key known only to the recipient. SSL an unique and effective way to achieve data/ecommerce security.

Internet trends have boomed in popularity and are creating more opportunities for both commercial and non-commercial sectors. Most people will not submit their private details on the web unless they know the transaction/information they provide would be secure. The best way to provide web security and gain more customers is by installing an SSL certificate to prove the legitimacy of your website.

Should I install WordPress Free Blogging Software on Linux Or Windows Web Hosting?

When you go to http://wordpress.org/ to get your free Blogging software, you will find you can install the WordPress Free Blogging Software or either a Linux Web Hosting Plan  or a Windows Hosting Plan as long as both web hosting plans have a access to set up a new mySQL database that the WordPress Bloggging software uses.

We recommend using the Linux Web Hosting Plan since permalinks can be set up using this string:  /%postname% which is not support in a windows install. Using the /%postname% permalinks means you can enter full words in your URL for each post which is good for Search Engine Optimization reasons.

Click on Linux hosting for plans that start at $6.95/month that support this free WordPress blogging software.

You need to learn how to script the database that you are copying from and then run that DB script on the empty database that you want to import to. Scripting databases is not an easy topic you can learn by reading 1 paragraph here. You need a DB administrator to script a database or buy some good books on the topic.

Just doing a simple Import or Export with MS SQL 2005 Server Management Studio can help you load data initially in your tables but you can lose the identity field increment options on a table if you don’t know what you are doing. However if you have a small database and don’t use identity field increment options or indexes you can do the following steps.

Open MS SQL 2005 Server Management Studio and click on the database you want as the source to copy from. Right click on that database and choose the Tasks menu then the Import Data menu option under that Tasks menu. This will open up the SOURCE dialog box. Leave the Data Source as “SQL NATIVE Client” and change the server name to the source server or source IP. Enter your SQL Server authentication and choose the correct database. Click the next button to open up the DESTINATION dialog box. Leave the Data Source as “SQL NATIVE Client” and change the server name to the destination server or source IP. Enter your SQL Server authentication and choose the correct database. DOUBLE CHECK YOU HAVE THE RIGHT DATABASE. Click the next button to open up the Table/Query Dialog box. Choose either selection however if you are not running a DB script then choose the top option and click Next. Choose the tables you want to import or select the ALL button at the bottom. Click Next to go to the Execution Dialog box. Here you can click Finish to execute the IMPORT or you can save it if you are going to do this import often. You will be notified when the IMPORT is complete.

How to run several websites under one ip address in apache:

 

1. Install Apache using the following command: yum install httpd

2. Check to see if apache came up properly, browse to the ip address of the server.

3. To configure apache to run several websites on one ip you will need to create the directories first, upload the websites and then modify the httpd.conf .

4. You can create the directories for example under /home , so they would be /home/site1.com/www, /home/site2.com/www and so on and so forth.

5. Once the directories are in place you can now make the following entries at the bottom of the httpd.conf:

:80>
ServerName site1.com
DocumentRoot “/home/site1.com/www”

allow from all
Options +Indexes

:80>
ServerName site2.com
DocumentRoot “/home/site2.com/www”

allow from all

We will be posting many tips on managing your database as well as tips on managing your web hosting environment. This tip is on SQL Injection so you can learn how to protect your database from hackers. Here you go — free on us — compliments of http://www.sozohosting.com/ and also compliments of http://www.biznesstechnologies.com/ :

How do I stop SQL Injectons In My Application?

SQL injections are performed by hackers using your application code to run SQL statements that you did not plan on. SQL injections can occur if you have edit boxes that allow users to enter some text and then you use that text they entered tacking it on to the end of a standard SQL lookup statement and then run that concatenated SQL statement against your database.

To stop SQL injections, you should first know a lot about SQL commands and how to avoid writing code that lets users run a SQL statement other than what SQL you wanted to perform. You should add client side valiation to your code on all places where users can enter some text into a text box on your application screens. Do not allow the following characters in an input box:

percent sign, greater than sign, less than sign, semi-colon, single quote, double quote….

You also could limit text entered on your application screen’s edit boxes to only be a-z characters, and/or 0-9 digits as that is even more protection.

Click on these links below and read the information for further instructions (like always using stored procedures) on how to protect your websites against SQL injections.

We will be posting many tips on managing your database as well as tips on managing your web hosting environment. This first tip is on MS SQL Server databases. Here you go —  free on us — compliments of http://www.sozohosting.com/ and also compliments of http://www.biznesstechnologies.com/ :

Web Hosting And Database Tip 1

It is your responsibility to control your MS SQL database log size. If it gets too big for the Size you have allotted then you will get an error in your application. You can fix this different ways. You could run this in a query window but this is a 1 time event:

BACKUP LOG YourDatabase WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY
DBCC SHRINKFILE(YourDatabase_log, 2)

Replace the text “YourDatabase” with your database name and replace the number 2 with the MB size you want to shrink your log file down to. Use 2 as your minimum as that will reduce your database log file to 2 MB. After replacing the text with your database name and setting the MB size of the log file, execute both SQL lines above together.

You could add this SQL call below to call if more often dynamically adding

BACKUP LOG YourDatabase WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY
DBCC SHRINKFILE(YourDatabase_log, 2)

in your application code, replacing the “YourDatabase” text with your database name and setting the size of the log file, and executing this SQL dynamically. Best case is to add these 2 lines of SQL script above to a stored procedure and schedule the stored procedure to run nightly. Of course you want to back your database up before your run this script if you want to maintain a copy of your full sized log file.

Or you could add a stored proc and call it on a regular basis after you run your database backups. Here is an example of a stored proc for MS SQL 2008 databases to shrink the log file to 1 MB:

USE [YourDatabase]
GO
/****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[SRINK_Log_File_To_1MB] Script Date: 12/15/2011 10:00:32 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[SRINK_Log_File_To_1MB] AS
BEGIN

— Truncate the log by changing the database recovery model to SIMPLE.
ALTER DATABASE YourDatabase

SET RECOVERY SIMPLE

— Shrink the truncated log file to 1 MB.
DBCC SHRINKFILE (2, 1); — here 2 is the file ID for trasaction log file,you can also mention the log file name (dbname_log)

— Reset the database recovery model.
ALTER DATABASE YourDatabase

SET RECOVERY FULL

In order to set email alerts in Cacti you need to install the Cacti Plugin Architecture. This can be found at http://docs.cacti.net/manual:087:1_installation.9_pia#installing_plugins, this is a good document for instructions on how to install and add plugins. Once this is installed be sure to go under the Utilities section of Cacti and select User Management. Once in User Management you will need to select the users you would like to have the ability to set Thresholds. You would do this by selecting the user, go to the realm permissions tab, then put a check on the Thresholds you would like to allow the user to have access to. Next hit save and you are done.

Also I found a little gotcha on the installation that had me stuck for a few hours. When you are on the final stages of the installation of the plugin architecture make sure you have the settings plugin installed. This plugin should be set in the config.php as ($plugins[] = ’settings’; ) . Also you do not need to add other plugins to the config.php , just load them in the /cacti/plugins directory . Then once they are there go to the configuration section , plugin management and the plugin will appear.

Hope this helps!

What is the Cloud? The cloud or cloud computing refers to the use and access of multiple server-based computational resources via a Internet connection using or the World Wide Web. Cloud users may access their server resources using a computer, netbook, tablet computer, smart phone, or other device. In cloud computing, applications are provided and managed by the cloud server and data is also stored remotely in the cloud configuration. Users do not download and install applications on their own device or computer; all processing and storage is maintained by the cloud server.

Load applications on your cloud server and then run them on all web brower platforms including your Iphone and Ipad. Sharing an applicatoin by running it in the clould means you even can print reports locally from that cloud application. Take time to rethink of applications that you can share across your company by putting them in the cloud saving huge amounts of time.

These are the things to look for in Network Security.

Firewall Systems – Ask for a network that has firewall systems which only allow access to specific ports as needed. All other ports are closed so the outside internet does not have access to the network.

Intrusion Prevention Systems – Ask for intrusion prevention systems which are used to scan incoming and outgoing network packets for signatures that may resemble a hack attempt. The intrusion prevention systems filter out all hack signatures that are recognized before they reach the network. This is another level of security some firms offer to prevent systems from being compromised.

Spam Prevention – Ask for a network that is protected in real-time from spam email.

Physical Security – Ask for a data center is equipped for security with a gated card reader for entry to the premises followed by card readers into the facility and locked cages.

Many hosting firms do not offer this network security mentioned above.  For a firm that does, click on this link for more information:  http://www.sozohosting.com/about/

Google GMail, Yahoo Mail, HotMail, etc might be good for your personal email ids but they are not professional in the business world. You want to have email ids that have your web site domain in them. For example if your web site is www.SomeWebSiteName.com then you would want your employees (say John Doe and Sally Doe) to have email ids such as john.doe@somewebsitename.com and sally.doe@somewebsitename.com respectively.

You would want to set up some general web site email ids for your web site to automatically forward to your emal id. For example, you should add these new emails ids: sales@somewebsitename.com, support@somewebsitename.com, and info@somewebsitename.com and have these email ids added to your web site pages and automatically forward these emails to either or both john.doe@somewebsitename.com and sally.doe@somewebsitename.com. Forwarding means 1 person in your company could receive all these emails sent to sales@somewebsitename.com, support@somewebsitename.com, and info@somewebsitename.com if you are a very small business. Eventually as you grow and get a sales department, a support department and a call desk, you can hand those email ids off to those departments.

It is your responsibility to control your MS SQL database log size. If it gets too big for the Size you have allotted then you will get an error in your application. You can fix this one of different ways. One way is Changing Your Database Data/Log Ratio in your hosting control panel section if you have that function from your hosting provider. The second is to execute the following SQL commands(after you back up your database) together from MS Query Analyzer or MS SQL 2005 Server Management Studio which is logged on to your database:

BACKUP LOG YourDatabase WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY
DBCC SHRINKFILE(YourDatabase_log, 2)

Replace the text “YourDatabase” with your database name and replace the number 2 with the MB size you want to shrink your log file down to. Use 2 as your minimum as that will reduce your database log file to 2 MB. After replacing the text with your database name and setting the MB size of the log file, execute both SQL lines above together.

The third way to solve this issue is to place this SQL :

BACKUP LOG YourDatabase WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY
DBCC SHRINKFILE(YourDatabase_log, 2)

in your application code, replacing the “YourDatabase” text with your database name and setting the size of the log file, and executing this SQL dynamically. Best case is to add these 2 lines of SQL script above to a stored procedure and schedule the stored procedure to run nightly. Of course you want to back your database up before your run this script if you want to maintain a copy of your full sized log file.

Things changed for SQL Server 2008. He is a way to handle it for SQL Server 2008 databases:

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[SRINK_Log_File_To_1MB] AS
BEGIN

— Truncate the log by changing the database recovery model to SIMPLE.
ALTER DATABASE YourDatabase

SET RECOVERY SIMPLE

— Shrink the truncated log file to 1 MB.
DBCC SHRINKFILE (2, 1); — here 2 is the file ID for trasaction log file,you can also mention the log file name (dbname_log)

— Reset the database recovery model.
ALTER DATABASE YourDatabase

SET RECOVERY FULL

END

We are doing another post on this since it is so critical and few understand what an accounting Cost of Goods sold account is.  A Cost of Goods Sold account is a type of expense account on your Profit and Loss Statement(Report) also called an Income Statement (Run this reports oftem not just at year end).  A Cost of Good Sold expense are expenses directly releated to the sale of an item.  If you are not looking at your Profit and Loss Statement very often you are out of touch with your business.

When setting up your accounting system, set up sales by sector and Costs of Goods sold by matching sales sector so you can get a gross profit picture on each area (sector or department) of your business.  Cost of Goods sold should be logical groups such as Commissions Paid For Online sales, or SubContractor Fees For Certain Type of Sales Sector.

A small grocery store did this and found that their deli department was not making enough money so they eliminated their deli department and concentrated on the departments using the freed up space where they were making good profits.

So you should analyze the departments or sectors of your business to see which is most profitable and which is least and what you should do to improve your overall bottom line profit picture.

Whatever Accounting Package you use (such as QuickBooks), set up different sales accounts by sector that you sell to. One sales account could be contract sales ( face to face sales), another sales account could be online e-commerce sales, another could be sales by territory (i.e. State or Country). Then set up Cost of Goods Sold Expenses accounts to match these new sales accounts in your Accounting package.    Enter Cost of Goods Sold expenses that relate to that Sales sector only.

Now you can get a gross profilt per sales sector picture using  Sales Sector less Cost of Goods Sold Expense Sector to see where you are making most of your profits. Keeping your accounting system up to date will help you make better future business decisions.

Remember Cost of Good Sold Expenses are expenses directly related to the sale of that sales sector.     (Of course you dont enter fixed expenses like utilities and rent in Cost of Goods Sold Expense accounts.)
