I suspect you deleted the site from the main Webmaster Tools page without first unverifying yourself as a user/owner of the site. (Although you would perhaps expect the current account to be unverified automatically - that does not seem to be the case.) However, you should still be able to visit Webmaster Central - Verification Home from where you can ...

It sounds to me like somewhere there is perhaps a glitch in Google's systems that is not recognising the fact you deleted the site from your Webmasters account. I would suggest posting on their Webmaster Help Forums to see if they can help you from there. This is their recommended route for reporting non-standard issues.

ICANN-Accredited Registrars means that the registrar has signed the latest agreement with ICANN in 2009. It is possible that non-ICANN-Accredited Registrars have signed previous agreements with ICANN and not the updated agreement. When choosing a registrar, it is important to choose a high quality registrar as well as a high quality host. Google rates the ...

A few things: I am assuming that dom.ain is for our sake like example.com would be. I like it! Check the directory permissions for the DocumentRoot /var/www/html/git/project/app. It should be owned for the user that controls it in Apache. It depends on how your Apache is set-up but the user could be www-data or root. If you are using virtual hosting and a ...

Frames! You can search for a free host (such as 000webhost, HostYD or Hostinger) and create a page with the following content: <iframe src="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/user_nubmer/folder_name/index.html" style="position:fixed; top:0px; left:0px; bottom:0px; right:0px; width:100%; height:100%; border:none; margin:0; padding:0; overflow:hidden; ...

From my experience, linking from within the same industry does not provide value. In some cases can incur a penalty. I once worked on a project where, we'll say plumbers, started linking to other plumbers not in their area, for SEO purposes. This ended up getting all of the plumbers banned from the index. This ban took 2 years to fix, and required some ...

EMD 'Exact Matching Domains' are less effective than ever It's no big secret that Google no longer rewards silly amounts of ranking power for exact domain matches and in fact it can actually harm your rankings, especially on new sites. Nowadays unique branding works best because of Google having the ability to associate your site with a fresh unique ...

Or take them all and pick one maindomain, and make the others alias. But the problem still remains... Just do a keywords check. There are plenty sites (like GA) in which you can check the value of a keyword, solo or combined with other words (like your case). After you find how much a keywords is search, check how many results pop up with the queries. One ...

'False WHOIS info is against ICANN rules' No, it's not. Providing your REGISTRAR with false information is againt ICANN policies. Providing false WHOIS information is not.

It requires two things; Add a file called CNAME at the root of the project which only contains the domain name, see the docs In your DNS server, add an entry. This is done at your domain name service provider, or named/bind zone file Follow the instructions on setting up a custom domain with GitHub pages

Leave it 24 hours from when they fixed the NS issue as it can take a fair while to propagate to all name servers internet-wide. If your still having problems then use NSLOOKUP to query it from a number of different servers. Say for example your Internode Name Servers then say the Telstra ones and maybe a root server or 2 for good measure and make sure they ...

If a hacker can access the mailbox for the email address in your whois records, then the hacker can steal you domain name. It is a good idea to use an email account with a unique password and good security. If your account at your registrar is hacked and your domain is transfered without your authorization, having access to the email address in whois ...

What else changed during the redesign, was it simply graphical? What needs to be remembered here is that if 301 redirects are set, then any off site factors should be passed over to the new domain, any ranking factors from links for example. However if there are other changes on the new site such as removing large chunks of text (or even simply changing ...

I would go with topic.example.com or example.com/topic and not a separate domain for each topic. Basically, use the silo approach. This will allow each topic to rank on its own without being too diluted. Also, having your keywords in the domain does not proved very much SEO value now a days. P.S. While topic.example.com or example.com/topic are both sound ...

If you point two domains to the same website/content this is duplicate content and exactly what Google does not want. They want one authoritative URL for all content to display in their search results. If you want two domains to display the same content you need to decide which one is the one you want in Google's search results and make that the canonical ...

Personally, I would point the A record to the same server. No need to touch the CNAME (in this case, or indeed, many cases). Very simply: CNAME is basically an alias, a forwarder. So, a request comes in to the registrar, hits the CNAME which looks up the relevant A record. Now a days, we just create more A records so we can avoid the CNAME look up, the ...

From a SEO standpoint, running the same site on 2 different domains will not give you any potential advantage, Google avoids indexing copies of web pages. In fact, potential duplication issues might lead to penalties like Google Panda update. On the other hand, if you would like users typing in example.net to reach the same site, you might want to do a ...

Under normal circumstances, any domain name, regardless of what you do with it, should have an A record that ties the domain name to an IP address. Do not try and use a CNAME for this. Any sub-domain, and www is a sub-domain, should have an CNAME pointing to the parent domain or optionally an A record just like the parent domain. Using a CNAME is traditional ...

I would pick subdomain if it only needs to separate logical parts of a site. Imagine car site, you writing about cars and maybe you have classified ads, one day you realize that you can copy this to be also a motorcycle site so you use a subdomain , or auto parts also a subdomain, but if you want to separate ie make of car to a subdomain it wont be good ...

mod_proxy can be configured from .htaccess to serve content from a different server or host as a subfolder. You would use a rewrite rule with the [P] flag (for proxy) in your .htaccess to do so: RewriteRule ^/subdomain/(.*) http://subdomain.example.com/$1 [P] ProxyPassReverse /subdomain/ http://subdomain.example.com/

Not without redirects. The only way you can do it without a redirect is to use a reverse proxy (either apache, or nginx would work great).

The argument over sub-domains versus sub-directory is simple to sum up. Sub-domains divide domain potential/effort into 2 (two) while sub-directories do not. Sub-domains are separate sites in a very real sense though now that Google has gotten smarter on this lately, some credit is given to the parent domain for the activities of the sub-domain. But is it ...

As much as I searched for information, there is no confirmation that subdomains and top level domains help each other automatically nowadays. There is some information saying it was true around 2007 and that it got killed around 2011, which makes sense, since this is an open door to ranking manipulation. If anyone has better information, please share...

You can only do this from DNS with a subdomain, not with subfolders. For subfolders, you need to do a proxy-pass - here's how it's done in Apache (version 2.4 and above): ProxyRequests Off ProxyPass /subfolder/ http://otherdomain.com/ ProxyPassReverse /subfolder/ http://otherdomain.com/ <Location /subfolder/> ProxyHTMLEnable On ProxyHTMLURLMap ...

This definitely can't be done with DNS. I think the real question you want to solve is "How do I allow cross-domain PHP and fonts?" To enable cross-domain PHP and font files (this is probably all you need) you would add the 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header to domain2's configuration, like so Apache: Header add Access-Control-Allow-Origin ...

This cannot be done via DNS. You either need to do it at the web server level (.htacess apache / rewrite rules IIS), or via a script that runs ASP.net, PHP, Perl etc. Essentially you need to change the response header to moved, and dns cannot do that.

It could be used, for example, for black themed webpages, like google. A black themed website saves battery as the screens have not to bright example: http://googleblack.magic-pack.com/

Please forgive me. People really have the wrong impression of SEO and IM (Internet Marketing). It really is not that complicated and doing a bunch of odd gyrations really does not help. It also does not help that so many so-called SEO experts put crazy ideas into peoples minds. Do not listen to the "me too" chatter. SEO and IM are really simple processes ...

From an SEO standpoint, moving from a keyword domain to a company branded domain is a good move. The 2014 SearchMetrics Ranking Factors found that that having keywords in the domain name is no longer a significant ranking factor. I consider hyphens in domain names to be bad for rankings as well. Moving to company branded domain name is a good move for ...

you could check if the domain name is available with tld .IT. You can check availability: https://www.eurodns.com/international-domain-names/it-domain-registration/ TLD .it is for italian domain names but could fit very nice your bussines. I my self have a romanian website with .it TLD in the IT bussines. You could give it a look. Hope it helps.

I had a company name that had "IT" at the end of it. The reason why I changed it (to a completely different name) is because without the context of "Information Technology" people (especially people not in the industry) would call it "it" and not I.T. So your example would be "example it" and not "example eye tee". "Example it" sounds kinda dumb (believe me, ...

Pluma makes some good points. I just want to add a few more. Adding IT to the domain name will not necessarily help with search performance. It will not sink into the SERPs as a search term, partly because it is a word, and IT is overly used. The keyword waters surrounding IT is murky at best. Having said that, the domain name should be memorable and ...

Without knowing what the actual domain name and the name of the brand you're trying to create/represent is, I'd say sticking "IT" at the end is only meaningful if "IT" is part of your brand identity. For most services "IT" is too vague to be meaningful and too generic to act as a qualifier. You're probably better off looking for a different TLD, a more ...
