Expression Web will do what you need to do. It should be comfortable for you to use since you're familiar with the Microsoft UI paradigm. It also corrects a number of problems that the old Frontpage had. While there are some other very good web editors available there will be a significant learning curve for them.

Yes, of course. You may use SVN (Subversion) or GIT, which are both integrated into the Coda app. Since Mountain Lion, you have to do a bit more to use SVN by the way (see Coda FAQ).

Have you thought about learning HTML & CSS and using good ol' Notepad? When you write HTML code yourself you can keep it clean and retain complete control. There are good text editors like Notepad++ that have syntax highlighting and other features to make development easier.

If SSH is turned off then you are probably using shared hosting. This means you can't install software on your server. If you want custom software on your server you either need to find a host that already supports it or get a dedicate server or VPS. If you already have a dedicated server or VPS then you need to have them turn SSH on for you as there is no ...

If you have physical control of the servers, you should be able to get access to the server, and change the password. A live Linux CD or DVD should get you full access to the file system. You can then copy the system off with or without changing the passwords. Does the system create backups? If so, you should be able to restore them to another system ...

There are loads of them on Dynamic Drive - horizontal and vertical. You can use them in any end-user project, but not resell or redistribute them.

I nether support or discourage the use of SEO Powersuite - but it might be cheaper than forking out that amount of money every month for web based SEO. http://www.link-assistant.com/ (They do seem to update there software on a regular basis as well)

I would suggest you read this blog post from WooThemes who hired Sucuri ( http://sucuri.net/ ) to review their code. http://www.woothemes.com/2012/09/every-line-of-code-audited/ Sucuri are well known for keeping WordPress and other sites safe. Experts are rare on oDesk or Freelance websites. You are going to find many foreigners who write code but don't ...

For what I undestood the /codewiki/ is still working with the old database, right? If so, back it up and do the upgrade process again on the live version. You already saw it's working in the /tempwiki/ so it should be fine. By taking a look at Mediawiki's Upgrade Documentation, they address the live upgrading issue this way: Can my wiki stay online ...

Well, there is a comparison of web application frameworks in a Wikipedia page. Also you may find this Stackoverflow post on Grid system comparison useful. But the question is, does these comparisons make you capable of choosing the right framework? Of course Not! As Aurelio mentions above, you need to know your goals, the language you're going to use, your ...

My answer is in no way any sort of legal advice. I am not a lawyer and have actually no idea how copyright and licences may or may not work in your country. The GNU.org website pretty much covers it all. I quote (emphasises by me): If a program P is released under the GPL that means any and every part of it can be used under the GPL. If you integrate ...

Using cracked software is a big risk, learning a freeware alternative pays of more in the long run, take for example GIMP and Adobe Photoshop, at first doing things in GIMP wasn't so smooth, but now you can do a really great job with it. Also I think free software changes less radically overtime not necessitating to ramp-up on learning where is stuff and ...

Magento Ecommerce seems to be the platform of the moment, with hosted prices from $15 - $125 per month and a free community edition. There are also number of Wordpress plugins that fulfill the same functionality (and WP is fully open source). In general you could do this with any platform so long as you tag the items correctly when they're added to the ...

Softonic's legal information page says (formatting by me): "For the purposes of preserving any possible intellectual property rights in the event a user or third party believes that their legitimate rights have been infringed due to the inclusion of certain content on the website, legal@softonic.com must be notified in writing by sending an email to ...

To continue the thought DisgruntledGoat started... I would also encourage you to consider getting a text editor and learning how to code. HTML and CSS are easy languages to learn, if you have an interest in that sort of thing. The pay-off in the long run for leaning the code rather than relying on an editor is huge. My favorite text editor is EditPlus ...

MagCloud is a print-on-demand magazine service from HP that lets you offer digital versions of your issues. There's a potential problem in that they seem primarily focused on the print side, and it's unclear to me from their basic information if you can offer the digital versions only. You should be able to determine that quickly while evaluating.

It depends on the type of web hosting you are paying for. If you are on a shared hosting plan (a lot cheaper) you can't do all of the stuff you mentioned above. But if you are on a dedicated server (higher price) you usually can do all of this stuff. The CPU/memory limits depend on the hardware of your dedicated server or the amount of resources they give ...

The short answer is that with shared web hosting, you don't do your own package management. While you usually get shell access, you don't get sudo or any other permissions you need to do this. Installing even a moderately complex package would require extensive and non-trival rewriting of install scripts. It is well beyond a PITA, it is (IMHO) impossible. ...

You're looking for a Learning Management System (LMS), preferably one with SCORM support so the logging/verification can happen. For heavy use, I would normally recommend Moodle as it has the widest variety of plugins and modules available for SCORM integration and also provides the fine-tuning and configuration options necessary to create a customized ...

mmm. I don't know about a desktop solution, but you should try to integrate your adsense account with Google Analytics, so you can create your own dashboard with a lot of cool stuff and stats, and they will be updating/improving over the time. I made a empty screenshot, it would be cool to show with data, but this is just for demostration purposes. P.D. ...

There are tools and services that will automatically submit your site to various directories; however, it can be dangerous to use them. Links from some directories can actually penalize your site in the search rankings. It's always best to manually submit your site to each directory and take the time you need to format it best for that individual ...

I'm using digixmas directory submitter (~2000 websites for $15 or ~150 websites for free). But another good way I found to submit sites is using fiverr. There are many people that offer to manually submit your website, for only $5 - which I find awesome !

If your software has no affiliate program then definitely it violates your own software distribution and marketing TOS if there is any. You don't have to worry about adsense or adwords TOS in this case. Even if your software allows such distribution check if they're not bidding on your keywords. You can contact them to take the ads down. If they refuse to do ...
