Introduction

Every interaction with a website requires a client (often a web browser) and also a server. Servers are computers on the internet which transmit content in response to requests sent by clients.

Introduction:

Welcome to the fifth part of this six part series on pagebuilders.. In the previous post we covered the different types and names of some popular pagebuilders for WordPress. @Ympker also included a details review of Divi, and a brief overview of Thrive Architect.

In this post, we will focus on breadth over depth. That is, we will cover a larger pool of pagebuilders rather than a detailed review as was the case in the previous post. We will also talk about about the advantage...

Introduction:

In Part II of this series, we covered services that offer a custom pagebuilder as a part of their web hosting. In part III, we will discuss pagebuilders that are in the form of desktop apps. This is an interesting category in itself.

Most of the apps are for Windows or Mac. In particular, we will cover two of these: Mobirise and Pinegrow.

The below reviews for Mobirise and Pinegrow have been written by @Ympker, with inputs from m...

Bitaccel new products

Corey from Bitaccel reached out to help get the word out about a new product they are launching and as I am a sucker for a new control panel I said yes.

I should say from the get-go that while the backend infrastructure is likely solid the panel is still a work in progress with a number of issues so do not expect the polish that you might get with other service providers.

The request to take a look was made a week ago and I can see that even in that short time a num...

Introduction to part II of this series

In this post, we will briefly mention the leading web hosting companies who also have their custom pagebuilders. But the main focus of this post will be on the "Younger Siblings" as we had described in Part I of this series. Specifically, we will talk about Carrd.co, Brizy, and Bookmark pagebuilders.

Part I: Introduction

The title, in case you were wondering, is a play on words on a movie by Woody Allen. And as the title suggests, this post is an introduction to the world of Pagebuilders. It is also the...

This is the first in a series of posts in the "Easy Mode" series

I thought I would write this up as a super easy basic guide to an almost no-effort method of migrating a KVM VPS from one host to another without having to worry about any minor changes in software stacks that could cause your backup and restore to fail or not restore as expected.

As a host one of the unfortunate realities is that sometimes it is just necessary to have migrations either due to end of life of an OS major version...
