Get a Mobile Online Presence

April 12, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on Get a Mobile Online Presence

Many know the impact of a website:  far reaching and almost free advertisement.  However, mobile interfaces are usually small and so a developer has to re-create in a flexible layout, resize all image contents etc.

Hunor Networking provides a low cost presence on the rapidly growing mobile Web.  With an easy to use control panel, you can edit / maintain your mobile website, saving you some in maintenance.

Therefore, your mobile website has the potential to provide you with the capability to:

  • Maintain your website, which Hunor Networking specially design for mobile devices of all kinds.
  • Add maps, one touch dialing, and special promotions for visitors.
  • Automatically detect whether to display the full site or mobile site to visitors.

With mobile Web users increasing by 148% in 2009 alone, having an easy to reach mobile presence is key to increasing your online exposure.

The number of people who browse the Internet on their cell phones is on the rise and if your website is not accessible via mobile phones or is not mobile friendly, you are losing a large portion of potential traffic.

CODING

This is one thing where many new mobile-interface developers hesitate. Below are some tips that can help remove that hesitation:

  • VALID CODE:

Use proper code and make sure that its 100% valid because most mobile browsers aren’t as good as their PC (Personal-Computer) counterparts so you should make sure that it’s valid.

  • FLUID LAYOUTS:

It’s not always easy to discover how your layout will look on all mobile browsers as there are far too many mobile devices used for web browsing and to track them all can be a big pain. One way to address/bypass this problem is the use fluid layouts that will automatically adjust to the screen size.

To accomplish this avoid setting widths in pixels and use percentages or ems instead. For instance, instead of:

width: 400px;

use
width: 100%

or
width: 1.0ems

  • SPECIFIC STYLESHEETS

You can always target various mobile devices for better user-experience. For example, for targeting users browsing your site using Handheld devices you can use this in your website’s <head>:

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”handheld.css” type=”text/css” media=”handheld”/>

You can find more about these media types at this link: W3.org – Media Types.

  • SAY “NO” TO FANCY SCRIPTS

For your mobile website to go successful, don’t use Javascript or Flash or any other of those fancy scripts available out there. Because majority of mobile devices fail to interpret these and end up either freezing the device or just doing something stupid!

If you really want to use these then should give your user a Polite Option so that your user knows what his/her mobile handset is loading and opening up (and if anything goes wrong, it’s their fault and not yours because you already warned them).

  • TAKE IT EASY WITH THE ADS

This is one thing that almost everyone should take care of! Don’t fill up your mobile page with ads. And this is not only for the mobile page but also for the original website.

It’s an old saying, “One rotten Apple in a basket makes all others dirty”. It goes true for these websites which are full of ads. These websites don’t care about User-Experience but only care about the money that comes into their pockets (because CPM is high on mobile devices).

So my suggestion, just don’t fill it up with ads! “Just don’t make your page with colourful ads.”

  • MOBILE BROWSER DETECTION (AUTOMATIC)

For making your brand successfull you should also include an automatic “Mobile Browser Detection & Redirection” server-side script (eg. PHP).  You might also use this as User Agent detection, where a server makes a decision on what to serve based on how an incoming browser describes its capabilities. You might also want to use this as an alternative or fallback method to the previous one Mobile Browser Detection in PHP. Other implementations feature real-time JavaScript requests to databases like DeviceAtlas or WURFL that also supply information on what a device can do. A mobile version is not complete until it’s automatically triggered for every mobile user!

  • MAKE A DEDICATED APPLICATION CLIENT (if necessary)

Yes! You read it correctly. If you have a really high user-base, make a dedicated application targeting various mobile interfaces. Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Yahoo and many other big-companies have done this and this is why they have been so successful. If you make an application for specific handsets then you no longer have to care about all the Fancy scripts etc. because you can then enhance the application your own way (you can’t change the mobile browser but definitely your own application).

Announcement vs Discussion Listserv

March 4, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on Announcement vs Discussion Listserv

What’s the difference between a discussion and an announcement list?

Discussion lists:

Discussion lists, on the other hand, are more like forums – while one person may start the conversation, list subscribers are all able to contribute and reply to everyone else on the list.

Email that is sent to the list will then be distributed to everyone else on that list via a moderator. For a large list, this may mean a single message being re-distributed to several thousand people, so it’s worth thinking about what you put in your message and only including as much of the message you’re replying to, if necessary.

Announcement lists:

An announcement list essential functions like a newsletter – information is distributed in one direction to people who are subscribed to the list.  They are used for breaking news, announcements and special offers, campaigns etc.


 

What Is Feedburner?

March 4, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on What Is Feedburner?

Feedburner takes the RSS feed from sites like this one and distributes them to subscribers. You may be wondering, what is a feed?

A feed is an easy way to distribute content without requiring people to actually visit your site. A person can subscribe to a website’s feed and gain access  to regular updates of a website. These updates are delivered automatically using either email, a new reader, or a web portal.

Feedburner is great because it enables the person to keep up to date with  a website’s content. You can have the feed delivered right to your inbox. This way you will always be  notified of important posts, events, contests, and news.

What is the difference between rss feed and feedburner? Is there any difference?

RSS:   you would need to view the feed online or download like a newspaper (see more at “What is RSS? blog entry)

FEEDBURNER:   feed is emailed straight to your mail inbox

What is RSS?

March 4, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on What is RSS?

What is RSS?  (“Feed-icon.svg“)

RSS is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.  RSS is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites.

In the ‘old days’ of the web to keep track of updates on a website you had to ‘bookmark’ websites in your browser and manually return to them on a regular basis to see what had been added.

RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site’s email newsletter.

The problems with bookmarking

  • You as the web surfer had to do all the work
  • It can get complicated when you are trying to track many websites at once
  • You miss information when you forget to check your bookmarks
  • You end up seeing the same information over and over again on sites that don’t update very often

RSS Changes Everything

What if you could tell a website to let you know every time that they update? In a sense, this is what RSS does for you.

RSS flips things around a little and is a technology that provides you with a method of getting relevant and up to date information sent to you for you to read in your own time. It saves you time and helps you to get the information you want quickly after it was published.

RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’. Many people describe it as a ‘news feed’ that you subscribe to.

I find the ‘subscription’ description helpful. It’s like subscribing to a magazine that is delivered to you periodically but instead of it coming in your physical mail box each month when the magazine is published it is delivered to your ‘RSS Reader’ every time your favorite website updates.

How to Use RSS

There are many feed readers going around with a variety of approaches and features –

Find Some Feeds to Subscribe to – there are two places to look for a site’s feed:

  1. On the Site
  2. In Your Browser

Browser Subscription

Many internet browsers now have the ability to find and subscribe to RSS feeds built right into them.

When you surf to a site you can usually tell if it has an RSS feed by looking in the right hand side of address bar where you type in the site’s URL.

Here’s how it looks for Hunor Networking when you’re using Firefox:

Using Safari Browser it is a Reader icon:

Other modern browsers will have similar icons.

To quickly and easily subscribe by clicking these icons you’ll want to set up your browser to do it with your feed reader of choice.

Once you’ve done this and have subscribed to a few feeds you’ll begin to see unread items in your Feed Reader and you can start reading.

Don’t want to Use an RSS Reader? Email is an Option

Many sites also enable you to subscribe to RSS feeds via a more familiar medium – Email (Mac Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook etc.)   On the right hand sidebar there is a field where you can enter your email address and get a daily email with a summary of the latest posts.

At Hunor Networking, you can subscribe/unsubscribe at any time, most importantly your email will be kept private and not used for any other purposes than to send these daily updates.

Selecting A Payment Provider: PayPal® and Authorize.net®

March 3, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on Selecting A Payment Provider: PayPal® and Authorize.net®

The Basics To Selecting A Payment Provider

Online payment processing is a complex topic. To help simplify it, I’ll focus on two payment processors my clients have had good success with: PayPal® and Authorize.net®

Authorize.Net LogoAcceptance Mark


What You Need:
To accept payments online, you need two things: a “payment gateway” and a “merchant account”. When a customer makes a purchase, the “payment gateway” handles the authorization – meaning it contacts the credit card issuer and makes sure the card is valid. If it’s good, the “payment gateway” will then charge the card, and deposit funds into the online store owner’s “merchant account”. Sometimes, the “payment gateway” and “merchant account” are two different companies; sometimes they are one in the same. The online store I work with (ECT) allows you to configure more than one payment processor, to give your customers a choice.

What It Will Cost: There are typically several fees involved in utilizing an online payment processor. Compare fees for different payment processors to see which is most beneficial for your small business. Here are a few examples of fees:

Fee Name and Description
One Time Set Up Fee
Monthly Fees
Per Transaction Fee – for each online transaction processed
Discount Rate % – percentage of each transaction

Using PayPal® as Your Online Payment Processor

PayPal® bundles it’s services and offers comprehensive online payment processing. They are a payment gateway and merchant account rolled into one. To accept payments online, you simply need to sign up for a PayPal® business account. If you only need PayPal® “Buy Now” buttons on your website, sign up for Website Payment Standard. If you have an online store, sign up for Website Payments Pro.

Use the referrer link below to sign up for a PayPal® Business account:
Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

Using Authorize.net® as Your Online Payment Processor

Authorize.net® is primarily a payment gateway, but since they were acquired by CyberSource, they also can provide merchant accounts.

Comparing PayPal® and Authorize.net®

Below is a brief comparision of PayPal® and Authorize.net® payment processing costs. Note the Authorize.net® costs are shown for payment gateway and merchant accounts, for a fair comparision to PayPal®‘s Website Payments Pro. (This information is only for reference and you should check each company for the latest info.)

Description PayPal® Website Payments Pro Authorize.net® Payment Gateway and Merchant Account
Set Up Fee $0 $99
Monthly Fee $30 $42.95 – $57.95
Per Transaction Fee $0.30 $0.35
Discount Rate % 2.2% – 2.9% 2.19%
VISA/MC Included Included
American Express Included Separate Application
Discover Card Included Separate Application
eChecks Included Separate Application
Automatic Deposit Complex Simple
ECT Online Store Fully Compatible Fully Compatible
Ability To Collect Complete Customer Data No, because PayPal Express Checkout is required. Yes
Customer remains on your website for entire transaction. Not always. If they want to use their PayPal account, they will leave your website and may not come back. Yes

Great investment to upgrade your site!

February 26, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on Great investment to upgrade your site!

Probably, you have heard of the most popular web content management software  (CMS):  “WordPress.”    It is easy to use, manage and update; and, includes many new features:  full standard compliance (W3C), lots of themes (thousands of free templates), spam protection, password protected posts, better text formatting – typographical niceties, blogs, just to name a few.    Please see the features here: http://wordpress.org/about/features/ .

Although our innovative Instant Web Content (IWC) software predates most CMS used nowadays, we didn’t have the resources to market it.  Now, due to cost consideration, we can not not develop it any further.

Many months agoe, we have installed WordPress our servers. It works great!  Please see one of our first clients to use WordPress:  Calvert Medicine http://calvertmedicine.com .

The cost of moving websites from an old architecture, even proprietary, static, etc., to WordPress can be minimal a expense, but a worthwhile investment!

Our goal is to ensure our clients can use all of the technologies available as they become available.

Reasons for Not Using Flash

January 27, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on Reasons for Not Using Flash

Do not design websites in flash!

Flash is not a tool for web design. Flash is amazing for games, movies, video players, animations, and other little web trinkets. But when it comes to using flash to design a website, flash is a major disappointment.

Flash is detrimental to SEO, navigation, usability, and the overall user experience. The content of the site will never be indexed by any search engine due to the fact that bots mostly ignore flash elements and cannot read the content on them and when it comes to SEO, content is king. Users have no back button, they cannot inspect elements, and if they are on a mobile or text-only browser, it is as if your site doesn’t even exist.

Domain Name Registration & DNS

January 27, 2011 in Service/FAQ Blog by Hunor Networking LLC  |  Comments Off on Domain Name Registration & DNS

I know registration/transfer/renewal is not a straight forward process. Some companies lure people in with a low cost, but they don’t disclose the rest of the fees you will incur when actually you would want the website to work and in some cases even host the website itself and emails. Typically, the hosting is on a basic proprietary software which makes it difficult to upgrade the site, make changes, and to leave them, because it is not transferrable to any other host.

Please note that simply renewing registration or registering a domain name is not enough for the website to work. In addition to renewing a domain registration (at goDaddy runs around $11.99 + 18 cents ICANN fee; see Table below), a private registration is another $9.99/Year (see at http://www.godaddy.com/domainaddon/private-registration.aspx?isc=goaf2103ab&ci=9002 ).

Domain Name Service (DNS) management is the key for your website to show up with that domain name at some webhosting company.

GoDaddy, and others, allow us to put in our DNS server names, and we do the rest on our server (this DNS server management service fee varies, for example at NTC Hosting, it is $4.35/Month or about $51/year: http://www.ntchosting.com/dns/dns-management.html ).

Our registration and domain renewal is a combined package:

1. domain name registration/registration/transfer
2. DNS server management,
3. and lately we were able to offer Private Registration.

Although we are small company, we are still able to match Networksolutions.com price, which is $86.97 for 3 Years, or $35 for 1 Year.
