Without the S. Hardware already refers to multiple, so there's no point in making it plural. Nobody in the United States says hardwares.

Using ALM Performance as your keyword will mean you always struggle to compete with HP for that search term and anyone searching for your tool will find the HP tool instead, I would suggest choosing an alternate name.

"Bing" is a registered trademark of Microsoft. Trademark law gives them exclusive rights to use that name in the search engine field. It also gives them the right to sue anybody that uses names that might be similar enough to cause confusion in the marketplace. Your name of "Ving" sounds confusingly similar to me. A trademark lawyer would be able to ...

AOL hasn't powered its own search engine for over a decade it now uses Google search. SOURCE In fact, in June of 1999 Netscape Search was updated and AOL/Netscape search began to be powered by Google bringing their search volume to approximately 3 million per day; huge for the time. More related information can be found on AOL's website: ...

There is virtually no exact match domain name effect. There was a time that Google thought it was a good idea that exact match domain names be given a significant boost, however, that was a spammer's dream come true and Google saw the error of their ways, a bit slow of course. The URL is a significant factor, however, not the way you think. Google does not ...

For a personal site, Co.cc is free forever, you just have to renew the domain every so often (I think those two years). If it's a business website, you do have to pay, but I think it's only $5 a year, but if you're willing to pay money, bump it up to $10 and get a real domain.

From Wikipedia Domains may be registered on the second level (john.name) and the third level (john.doe.name). It is also possible to register an e-mail address of the form john@doe.name. Such an e-mail address is a forwarding account, and requires another e-mail address as the recipient address. When a domain is registered on the third level ...

I had this problem not to long ago. I suggest having a few people sit around and brainstorm ideas. Not all the domains are taken that are "cool". A lot of what will make a domain good will be the product you provide. I managed to get a domain for my hosting company that is easy to remember and has relevant keywords in it. It didn't come to me in 10 min ...

No, it really won't affect your SEO in any way. There are many hostings using one server for many domains.

If you're asking this question, then you are likely not running your own name server. At that point, you more than likely will be using the "Set up DNS and Name Servers Automatically". You would then use their DNS zone file function to tell everyone where to find your web server, mail exchanger, etc. Specifying your own name servers is not naming your own ...

Looking with nslookup and then browsing those IPs found in the records I see that there are the old IPs that CloudFlare no longer handles, I think you didn't updated your A records. You should contact your DNS provider. You need to verify also that your public IP's are seen from outside, and then change the A records with the help of your DNS provider.

I haven't seen any especially unique name for these, just them referred to as suggestion boxes. All Our Ideas operates as a service, but the software is open and available on Github. BBYIDX is a similar offering that oddly enough had its start at Best Buy. If you want to get more hands-on, the WordPress Ideas(and Kvetch) areas are almost certainly built on ...

Google is a little bit over exact on this to avoid requests on the verification topic. It's the content="" part of the verification meta-tag which has to be case sensitive. Not the name="" part as you post it in your answer. Google verifies with help of this meta tag even if the name-part is NOT written as they provide it. So <meta ...

Definitely you can promote the same, If you can't compete HP you will definitely get rank next to HP and if you have effective marketing strategy than you can even get higher rank to HP, but note that it can take long time to get rank ahead HP as they have huge traffic on their website. I think you might face Copyright Issue for name, if they had registered ...

This is more of a legal question than a webmaster question, but here goes. It really depends on intent, how good MS's lawyers are at proving intent, and the mood of the judge that would preside over the case. It is perfectly legal for me to create a company called Zony that manufactures leather belts. However, it is gray area for me to create the same ...

Okay. You are asking for several things that are fairly representative of common misconceptions in ranking a brand within search. I am at a disadvantage not knowing what your domain name is. That being said, I will try and explain things the best I can. The first thing you need to know is that a fairly new site will not rank as a brand no matter what you ...

Citations of name, address, and phone number are very important for ranking in Google Maps searches. Google measures how "important" a local business is by counting the number of times its name, phone number, and address appear on the web. If you don't have a physical storefront where you want to have customers show up, you don't need to worry about ...

You could create a Google+ Page for your company, (or claiming an already existing placeholder page if there is one) and adding the link to your on that page. This seems to boost the ranking of pages too

Most common second-level names under .name cannot be registered at all. They are reserved by the registry. If you run a whois search on such a name, you'll get the following result (e.g. this query for bianchi.name): Not available for second level registration. Third level registrations may be available on this shared name. A name that is not ...

Indeed, this effect often appears for the background when a modal dialog is displayed. It is called a mask. This is the action to freeze the parent window.

It's known as the modal backdrop where you apply a fade in opacity to the backdrop like this example demonstrates.

how to get this done so my name and picture will appear on the sidebar of the Google search results. In order to get your name and image on Google search results you need your own Google Plus profile accounts with your name and image (using Google Authorship) but you are asking the way to show your image and name in Google sidebar. Your name will display ...

I can answer with certainty for Apple: no. iTunes Connect will not permit you even to create the app's record, much less upload a binary. See screenshot. That said, you will likely get away with something like "damnit!!!!" As long as it's not equivalent (whitespace ignored). However I did just now create in the Google Play Console an app called Angry Birds. ...

Shared hosting uses one server for many sites and is pretty common (although I've never heard of as many as 500 on one server before). Contrary to what others said, there is a small chance it could affect SEO. If the majority of the other 500 sites are spammy, pornographic, virus-ridden sites then you could be classed as being in a "bad neighbourhood" and ...

I've found it best to buy as many as you can in one place (if they are related) so you can easily update them. Personally, I haven't purchased some of those TLD/SLDs, but I've heard the Austrailian one you have to purchase from an AU registrar only - someone like name.com.au Most likely for the others you'll need to do the same. In that case, I'd suggest ...

Why not go for the best of both worlds and have somethinghost or somethinghosting where the something is meaningful and cool. Others have done it: bluehost, hostgator, etc.
