Start and Own Your Website for $15 (Updated now only $10 for a limited time!)

Posted on: September 26th, 2011 by Bily Foster No Comments

With Domain Name Registration

Technically to run your own website you need two core things, a domain name and hosting, and currently OneLDomains.com has a special where you can get your own personal domain name and a month of hosting for $15 $10.

Steps to get the deal:

    1. Visit http://oneLdomains.com
    2. Click Webhosting – *Updated there is now a WordPress Option
    3. Select Hosting – WordPress – Deluxe – Monthly $6.99
    4. Click Add
    5. Scroll down to ‘Add a domain name for only $1.99* for the first year!’
    6. Select your domain name
    7. Once you have your domain name click Add To Cart
    8. Scroll down and select No Thanks
    9. Once in your shopping cart verify that you’ve selected 1 Year of registration
    10. Complete the Checkout

Once you have purchased the domain and hosting it will take a little time to process and when it is done follow these setups to setup your hosting and blog:

Of course you do not have to go with WordPress, there are several options out there but I found this to be the best thing for site owners just getting started.

If you get stuck feel free to contact support 24/7 at 480-624-2500.

It’s Time For You to Change Your Password

Posted on: September 21st, 2011 by Bily Foster No Comments

So I’m guilty of using the same password more than once and that’s very dangerous, however I do use a variety of variations but now I’m be able to do it a much easier way.

Password Haystacks.

Now the first time I heard about it I wasn’t paying much attention and I missed the beauty of how easy they are once you understand.

I’ve included a video from KABC-TV LOS ANGELES, CA, but here is the break down. The longer your password the harder it is to crack. It takes the cracking software longer to figure out. So the answer isn’t harder passwords to remember but ones with longer combinations of characters to hide the needle.

Example: D0g is the needle

Alone it would take an Online Attack Scenario (assuming one thousand guesses per second) 4.04 minutes to guess.

D0g…….. would take a the same Scenario approx 1.83 billion CENTURIES.

Adding more characters, makes it take longer. Makes perfect sense, so update your passwords ASAP! Keep in mind while the example starts with the password you can put the password anywhere in the haystack.  Here are a some different examples:

….D0g….
.D0g,,,,,,,
;;;;;;;;D0g

Thanks to Steve Gibson for his brilliant discovery.

The Time Is Now

Okay it’s about time I start taking some of my OWN advise and trying to get myself to do regular updates.  My goal is at least once a week, but I’m hoping for a couple times per week.  Some will make it to the home page others will simply be randomness of the day.
