How-To Guides

A few days ago, a customer contacted me about performing some WordPress work in regards to redirecting two additional WordPress websites to their primary website.

To perform the work and lessen the manual labor of redirecting all links by hand, I wrote a few lines of code in a .htaccess file.

I setup a quick test environment to ensure the .htaccess file was executing as it should. And it worked like a charm, redirecting all previous blog posts to their respective new url.

What should have been a routine change, rather an addition of code to the .htaccess file, turned out to be a wild goose chase to locate the .htaccess file. Continue reading

Twitter lit up Friday afternoon like the forthcoming Christmas lights (🎄) will in about a week or so.

The legendary Domain King himself, Rick Schwartz, took to Twitter mid afternoon to express his extreme latest discontent concerning GoDaddy’s aftermarket.

Although it’s been nearly 3 years since his retirement or semi-retirement announcement and the end of blogging, Schwartz has been actively tweeting, ranting, buying, selling, pontificating and more on a wide number of topics, including but not limited to domains. Continue reading

I recently received a frantic email from a customer alerting me that their WordPress website had been hacked.

Of course, I always check to see if what the customer states is true before I jump in the boat or begin the fire drill to make everything like it once was.

What struck me as odd was that at the very moment I open and read the email, I was able to successfully open a Chrome web browser and load the customer’s website with ease.

I responded to the customer’s email, informing the customer I could access the website without issue. I requested the customer to send me screenshots of what they were seeing.

A few moments passed, but sure enough, the customer send screenshots of their website loaded in a browser and displaying Chinese text.

Seeing the customer used Firefox web browser, I too opened a Firefox web browser only to discover that the website loaded to an all white screen.

I opened the web browser’s Developer Tools, and was able to see the website was resolving and loading with a 200 request response.

What on earth could be causing this “kiss of death” white screen for this WordPress website? Continue reading

A week or so ago, I introduced you to the Facebook Graph API using PHP.

Although the Facebook Graph API can be used to retrieve a trove of wide-ranging data, I specifically showed you step-by-step how to retrieve the total count for a unique URL’s likes, shares, and comments.

Today, I’m going to show you the same, but this time using JavaScript and jQuery, a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify client-side scripting of HTML. Continue reading

A week or so ago, I was scanning my Twitter profile feed in search of another tweet when I saw a slew of posts with the title “Check out this link” followed by a Facebook link.

check out this link - twitter feed

Each tweet had the same title but different link associations. At first I thought my account had maybe been hacked.

Not wanting to click the link that followed “Check out this link”, I created a controlled virtual environment to view the link from to control it should it be a virus, malware or ransomware.

Even though it was posted on Twitter, one can’t take chances with blindly clicking links.

Nevertheless, I clicked the link only to be taken to one of my daily expired auction pages. Then, I had an aha moment. Continue reading

What a week it’s been in the domain industry!

At the beginning of this week, news broke that MediaOptions purchased DomainSherpa, the leading educational media company dedicated to the domain name industry, after Michael Cyber retired for greener and more relaxing pastures.

Now it’s a Friday afternoon and almost time to call it quits when I stumbled upon what looks to be a valiant effort to be the next DomainSherpa for Emoji Domains. Continue reading
