User Experience User experience remains one of the most important factors when operating a website. User experience enhances your conversions, increases time spent on page and in directly improves rankings due to an increase of people wanting to link to your site.

You really do need to have the www. sub-domain point to your website. It is particularly important for type in traffic. If you tell a person to visit example.com, a large number of them will add a www. In my experience it is 40% or more that do this. I myself tend to like naked domains with no subdomain when creating a website. I have occasionally ...

Should you make www.example.com redirect to your site? Absolutely. Speaking from someone who works as a web developer and has an IT degree, if typing www.example.com didn't get me to your site, my first thought would not be to omit www. I'd think, "Oh, the site must be down." Or I'd think, "I must not have gotten the domain name correct. Maybe it's ...

I'm afraid I couldn't help you with the complications of setting up a Postfix mailserver, however with regards to your questions about the DNS records: The MX record you have created looks fine, provided that you have checked that (a) you have no other MX records with a priority less than 10, and (b) you have definately also got an A record setup for ...

You are checking your DNS records by using Who.is. A big problem with this is that Who.is does not always perform a Whois lookup or DNS record check live, in real time. They also appear to cache Whois data and DNS data for an unspecified amount of time. To check your DNS records in real time, you'd want to use dig from the command prompt (if you have this ...

So your explanation was really confusing, but your solution seems fairly simple: Your domain's servers are already pointed to the cloudflare nameservers. You do not need to change these. Cloudflare is still pointing users to your old host, but you can edit the DNS records in cloudflare to point to your new host. Simply change the existing A record to point ...

It does not sound like that was good advice. I do not have the details, so I will assume normal circumstances where you have one registrar and a separate host. If your domain name is registered with GoDaddy (or anyone really), you can host it within their DNS for free (assuming GoDaddy) and I recommend that. I always like to see the registrar host the DNS ...

Manual penalties are rare, and most will be algorithmically generated. This means that any penalties caused by on-site black-hat SEO should go when you upload a new site. I imagine the only real penalties you have to worry about are from bad backlinks. Check these, and if there are lots of spam links (directory / articles etc) pointing to your homepage, ...

If the web page is on a server in the same network as your client, and the network is behind NAT, this is the reason. Generally, one cannot access the services behind port forwarding from inside the actual network. Solution to this problem is either setting up split-horizon DNS or hairpin NAT. ...

I generally set up a sub-domain name, though it is not necessary. The sub-domain name does not matter. I use mail, but titan is perfectly fine. You want to either set up your sub-domain name using either a CNAME pointing to mydomain.com.au or as an A record just like mydomain.com.au. Either way you chose, it does not matter. Next you would set up a MX record ...

You will need to add your customers domain by adding a 'addon' domain to your account and use the sub directory you have currently. Shared IP's are not an issue and setting the add-on domain will do the rest once you have got your customer to add the AAA Name Record to the shared IP address. If you plan to host their mail for them then your need them to get ...

Is this important having my router host name include FQDN so router.example.com? Usually setting a domain on your router to example.com make all the HOST only requests on your network (e.g. ping somehostname) try to ping somehostname.example.com. This might be useful if you are running one domain only, but is not related or required by what you are trying ...
