Google Webmaster Tools has a setting for it. You need to add each sub-directory as a *separate site". Then for each subdirectory, you can set the targeted country under "Search Traffic" -> "International Targeting" -> "Country". Google has a help document that walks you through the process: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/62399?hl=en ...

SRV records cannot be used with websites. Browsers don't know how to look up SRV records to fetch a website on a different port from a different IP address from the main DNS A record. The reason for this is provided by Teddy in Why do browsers not use SRV records? The RFC for SRV records specifies that it may not be used by pre-existing protocols ...

Adsense work on the content not on the IP. If your other domains contains trash entries, it won't penalize you unless those domains got involved in scams/spams. A website/domain involve on scams/spams will be IP recorded and will be looked at by Adsense in random timeframe. Adding a new IP will only allow you to put a dedicated IP on your Adsense domain and ...

Google analyzes content, not IP addresses. I have several clients on the same IP cause they're low income or for friends. No one gains and no one loses from that arrangement except I don't charge them for it.

You may want to also acquaint yourself with the legal implications. A 'coming soon' page could be construed as cybersquatting, leading to you loosing any intellectual property suits. Whereas at least a simple starting page could protect you in such cases. Note, I am not that familiar with this area of law, and my comments may not be completely accurate, ...

I don't bother with a "coming soon" page for a domain. It won't help SEO Search engines don't typically index coming soon pages, and even if they did, the coming soon page would only rank for the name of the website. No real progress on SEO can be made until there is actual content that contains keywords. It could hurt SEO if you put on keywords ...

Add a simple sign-up page where people can subscribe to your mailing list. Use something simple like Mailchimp to make it super easy. Now you can gauge interest before your site even exists. Get 100,000 subscriptions overnight? It's probably time to figure out how to get money from these individuals. You can probably make enough to make a decent living ...

While on one hand my answer will give some similar advice already given, I will add a bit more for a better understanding. Google is a registrar for a good reason. How that manifests is not entirely clear, however, we know that it gives access to domain name registration information at the very least. I do know that Google had agreements for years with some ...

If the website isn't particularly secret (e.g. a new product/service that shouldn't been announced yet) then starting with a landing page has its benefits. As you're preparing your business, you're likely to be using the domain for email already. If you send an email from @exmaple.com and a recipient visits example.com then at least they'll have some ...

If this is a new domain and you haven't promoted it yet (why would you if there is no site?) then just leave it and work on the site. If you don't tell anyone about it and don't link to it it will be like a silent number and no one will find it.

A coming soon page is slightly better. This is based on the assumption that the url will be checked out wether or not you promoted it. This page allows you to inform the user with whatever you want to tell them and tell them that something is going on, instead of serving them some harsh cold page: If you know a date, you could share that date, possible ...

If you have purchase a standard, single domain SSL certificate, then it will be for one domain, so you can only use it for domainname.com or www.domainname.com. If you have purchased a wildcard or UCC certificate then it will allow either unlimited subdomains (in the case of a wildcard) or mulitple domains up to a certain number (in the case ...

For not having proper reputation to add a comment, here I try to give suggestion that perhaps suit to your problem. Try to change the chmod first into 755, then try to delete them again. That's all. :D

Yes, the context of the word affects how strongly people react against its usage. We can truly understand the context, but search engines cannot fully understand. Google and other search engines have sets of filters to prevent profanity. One example of how they do this is Google's "SafeSearch" filter. Granted, this is disabled by default and is intended for ...

You can't tell a domain's history just by looking at the Whois record - that is just a current snapshot. However, there are some 3rd party services (eg. domaintools.com - not free) that monitor and report on this information. The "Updated" date is simply when the Whois record was last updated. Anything could have been updated. By coincidence, one of my ...

Well, put a common sense logic in your question. No, there's no way you can tell if domain was renewed. However... when someone updates a domain information it doesn't mean that it automaticly becomes renewed. So in this example: You are registering domain on 1 year period. This means means that domain is renewed August 26, 2015 and someone updated ...

My question is, can I make a site and make it public world wide with following conditions: Instead of hosting website on hosting service provider like Amazon, host it on my own server. No matter bandwidth, no matter performance, no matter uptime. Yes. I don’t want domain name. No matter people access my site using my public ip e.g. ...

as @w3dk mention in the comments, I had to add a R=301 in my .htaccess file. RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R=301,L] </IfModule> I didn't try Goyllo's answer but I think it's a good one if you don't have access to the server.

www.site1.net. IN CNAME mainsite.com. You have setup site1.net as an alias of mainsite.com The DNS now overrides the virtual host and alters your records and redirect you to mainsite.com Just leaving this here as a reference.

You can host a website on a home system, if you like. There is a caveat, though. Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) don't allow their customers to host their own servers, while others will allow you to do so. An ISP that doesn't allow home users to host their own servers may block traffic on the ports commonly used by servers. E.g., it can stop someone ...

You can start out hosting it on your own computer. I started out hosting my first website on my own computer. Now I make my living from websites. But when you do so, be aware: Your home is going to have lousy uptime. Your site is going to go offline for a variety of reasons: snow storms, traffic accidents, neighbors hogging bandwidth, your ...

I found this on Heroku and now my domain works fine without the www. I am not sure what it does. In short: Root domains must be added in addition to any subdomains. The process for adding root domains is the same in the Heroku CLI: $ heroku domains:add example.com Adding example.com to example... done ! Configure your app's DNS provider to point to the ...

I would recommend going with free blogging platforms such as wordpress and blogger. You dont have to worry about hosting nor domain. Also you will find tons of free themes to get your website up and running.

Yes you can host it on your own server. If you have a static IP, just up your network as if are a server and this should work. There is plenty to be found on the matter. You don't need a domainname. A domainname is for the common user, it's a whole lot easier to remember a name than an IP address. Just think of your contact list, it's easier to remember the ...

Google Webmaster Tools has no option to set HTTPS as the preferred version. Google takes this automatically from your canonical link tag. <link rel="canonical" href="https://example.com/"> So whenever the Google spider sees this line in your head section, Google automatically indexes the HTTPS version of your site. Nowadays, Google indexes HTTPS ...

Domain transfers do typically take quite a while, and can take even longer than 7 days if the domain administrative contact does not click on a authorization link in their email to approve the transfer. However, typically, email hosting/mail servers are not "tied" to a domain registration. You should be able to transfer your domain to another domain ...

I usually transfer MX entries during the weekdays. For example, friday afternoon when everybody goes home I change MX entries, and by the monday, it's all good. That's true what you've been told.

The Bodis support team returned to me with the following: If you require that your email.example.com subdomain is available to you, you're going to need to omit * (asterisks) part of your zone file and only include www 61076.BODIS.COM When CNAME forwarding, typically only the third level subdomain (www.example.com) can be forwarded while the ...

A domain name is owned by you. You can take it with you when you move hosting. The IP address is owned by your hosting company. Hosting companies sometimes force IP address changes during internal switches. Use the domain name if you don't want to be tied to your host.

Google will only ever rank .il domains well in Isreal. Google assumes that all content on .il domains is not very relevant outside Isreal. Google maintains a list of top level domains that are geo-targetable. There are a few country code TLDs on that list: .ad .as .bz .cc .cd .co .dj .fm .io .la .me .ms .nu .sc .sr .su .tv .tk .ws However, if your ...

Domain hosting has two parts: the DNS must point the domain to a server and the server must recognise the domain You should verify both. DNS points the domain to the right server: check using dig (or drill), nslookup or even simply ping or traceroute. All will take a domain name and let you know what the final resolved IP is. Check that it matches ...

So to be clear I will start from the WMT and work back to your server. Tl;DR Yes you can. Each domain needs to have a separate WMT account for both it and for its www. version. Specify the preferred domain. Put each domains sitemap in a separate, DIFFERENT NAMED, folder. Ensure you can publicly resolve that sitemap. Test the sitemap with WMT. Browse to ...

FYI, PageRank hasn't been updated since Dec. 2013, so for all intents and purposes it would be considered a 'dead' metric. That's not to say that Google don't have a Pagerank 2.0 used to measure has authority, relevance and trust flow within an IA. Also, please keep in mind that Page Authority and Domain Authority, as well as others metrics, are private, ...

You can use A record to point both domains to the same IP address. Then you can configure the webserver to serve both sites from the same directory. Doing so is usually a simple matter of making sure that each virtual host is set to serve content from a common directory. Your other option is to run a reverse proxy server on your second domain. When ...

In Spam blacklisting , only the IP address is blacklisted and nor content of the website / app , this is mainly an issue in shared hosting servers where a single IP address is shared among different users. If 1 users on the network is sniffed by spam spiders "Spam Detection apps/websites" then all users on the network/shared host using the same IP suffer the ...
