Search Engine Optimization Consultation

In our last post we discussed a key element which may lead to successful search engine rankings, the title tag. If you are interested in having your web site rank on the major search engines for your related keywords, you will generally need to have your website optimized for the search engines. At IPOWERWEB we are glad to inform you that we offer search engine optimization services and for a limited time (until the end of our special Business Pro sale) you can receive a free SEO consultation from an IPOWERWEB SEO expert. As long as you purchase our Business Pro hosting solution during the current sale you will receive many great bonuses, such as a free SEO consultation for your web site. At IPOWERWEB we are always working to bring additional value to your web hosting plan and our new search engine optimization consultation service is a wonderful example. Make sure to take advantage of this special promotion before it is too late.

Keywords In Title Tag

Today people all over the world use search engines in order to navigate through the Internet. This means that it is quite important to have your web site ranked highly for queries you consider to be valuable. For example if you sell basketball shoes, you generally want your site to be listed highly for the search "basketball shoes". The Internet is very large therefore you will generally always have some sort of competition, this makes ranking on the search engines a bit harder.
What we mean is that you must prove to the search engines that your website is more valuable and important when compared to your competitors, and therefore you should be listed in front of them when a person is to search for your related term(s).
There are many elements that will lead to successful ranking on the search engines. One in particular is having your keywords in your title tag. The title tag is an important place to have your keywords located because what is written title tag shows in the search results as your page title. You should try to be descriptive and not "spammy". Your title tag should typically be no more than 6 or 7 words at most. Try to have your keywords near the beginning of the title tag and try to have unique title tags for every page on your web site.

So this year they have selected the 27th of September to celebrate.
Google has surely made an everlasting impact on the Internet and will continue to play an important role in shaping the Internet for the future. Happy Birthday Google...

Google Leads All Search Engines in August 2007

Again for another month, Google led all search engine properties on the Internet as the most used search engine for the month of August 2007. Google came in 1st while Yahoo and MSN were second and third respectively. Over half of all searches across the Internet were performed by Google, who was the leading search engine with 53.6% market share. Google was followed by Yahoo at 19.9% and MSN (Live search) who had 12.9%. With the way things are going, it seems like no other site is able to dramatically cut into Google's large piece of the pie. As Google's market share and power across the Internet continues to rise, so does the company's stock - which just hit an all-time high at 571.79.

$50,000 NBA Domain Name

The Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball Association have recently purchased the domain name from Barbara Roe, a bobcat breeder who lives in Montana. For its first three seasons in the NBA, the Bobcats used the domain name because the domain name belonged to Barbara Roe. The Charlotte Bobcats have been pursuing the domain name since 2004, according to ESPN Roe has agreed to sell the domain name for $50,000.
We have talked about domain names in relation to property in the past. This case is a great example of a person (Barbara Roe) who most likely had no idea that an NBA team was going to share the same name as her domain name and because she owned the domain name, Roe was able to sell the name for $50,000 and easily pickup another domain name. Roe now uses the domain name and the domain name switch seems to be completed.

iPhone Comes to the UK on November 9th

If you live in the United Kingdom and have been waiting for the iPhone to become available in your country, you now know when the mini-computer/phone/mp3 player will become available. In an event in London, Steve Jobs announced that the Apple iPhone will be available with an exclusive carrier in the UK, O2. O2 has exclusive UK rights to the highly sought after mobile phone device. It is believed that when the iPhone becomes available on November 9th it will cost £269 including VAT. But remember if you are not in need of the iPhones Visual Voicemail feature and are willing to go against the wishes of Apple, there are many unlocked iPhones available all over the Internet so you do not have to wait until November 9th to get your own iPhone.

$100 Apple Store Credit Now Live

Earlier we had told you that all early iPhone owners would be receiving a $100 Apple store credit. Well it now looks like the early iPhone owners could retrieve their store credits either online or at an Apple retail store. The process to recevie your credit is very simple, all you have to do is enter your phone number and SIM number. Once you have done this Apple will SMS you a code and you are free to use your credit. The entire process is very simple and you don't even need a store receipt. Please note that the program does not work for phones that are not on the AT&T network. This credit only applies to people who purchased their iPhone before August 22nd, although it never hurts to try if you purchased your phone after the price drop.

Greg Oden's Rookie Season Has Ended

Every once in a while we get off topic and write about stories that have gained popularity. Today we have learned that Greg Oden, an NBA player who was the first pick of the 2007 NBA draft, will most likely miss his entire rookie season due to an operation on his knee. Doctors operating on Oden noticed that he was in need of microfracture surgery, which will probably sideline Oden for his entire rookie season.
Oden, who decided to come to the NBA after playing one year of college basketball at Ohio University is regarded as one of the best centers to be drafted in a very long time. His knee injury is actually was his second health related issue of the summer. Oden had a tonsillectomy in July after struggling in two of the Blazers' Las Vegas summer league games. The recovery time for his latest surgery is believed to last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Oden is the second player in the history of the NBA draft to be selected number one overall and not play in the year of his selection. The other player to do this was David Robinson in 1987 who instead of playing for the San Antonio Spurs, Robinson honored his commitment with the United States Navy. The injury to Oden will surely impact the performance of the Blazers this upcoming season, people all over the world were expecting Greg Oden to make an immediate impact once he entered the NBA. But we also must remember that basketball is a team sport, it is not just about one person. Rather all players on the roster must contribute in order for a team to be successful.

Price Drop Leads to More Sales

In July we wrote about the sales impact of the Sony PlayStation 3 following a drop in its price. You could read more about that Here...
As we had told you a bit earlier, Apple has decided to lower the price of its iPhone by $200 after being on the market for less than 80 days. We would now like to tell you that the drop in the price of the iPhone by $200 has led to a boost in sales. Now some may argue that the sole reason for the sales increase cannot be fully attributed to the drop in price although it is safe to say that the driving force behind the boost in sales must be the iPhone's discounted rate. If you are a business owner and if the time is right, you may want to consider running a sale or a special promotion. For example, currently at IPOWERWEB you could purchase our BusinessPro hosting for only $5.95 per month. This is a great deal and you should not miss out on the opportunity to purchase IPOWERWEB hosting at a discounted rate.

BusinessPro Still On Sale

Don't forget that our award-winning BusinessPro hosting plan is on sale for only $5.95 per month for one or two year plans. Our web hosting plans do not go on sale too often so make sure you take advantage of our great offer. Our BusinessPro sale is scheduled to end on September 24, which means that you have less than two weeks to get your own IPOWERWEB hosting plan at a highly discounted rate.

Cell Phones For Kids

15 years ago this would probably never been considered, a cellular phone company which caters to kids. We are referring to a company called kajeet, which is a pay-as-you-go cellular phone provider that has been in business to the general public since March 2007. This may sound odd at first, although kajeet is has been gaining momentum and seems to be doing quite well. kajeet plans do not have any long-term contracts or activation fees. kajeet has been running television ads on Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and other kid-oriented broadcast outlets since April of this year and in mid-March they began selling their products and services at Best Buy. kajeet has been featured on television and magazines all over the world and has created some buzz within the cellular phone industry. So when you think that an industry may be impossible to get into, think again. kajeet had a unique idea and they have now raised over $36 million in venture capital.

Act Instead of Watching

All IPOWERWEB web hosting plans come with an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee. This means that you can purchase any IPOWERWEB hosting package and if for some reason you must cancel your hosting account within 18 days after the purchase, we will provide you with a full refund - no questions asked. So if you have been considering starting a new web site or have a few ideas, do not wait. You have nothing to lose - IPOWERWEB web hosting plans are filled with the tools you will need to properly build and manage your web site. You should have no excuses now that it is so easy to get on the web and get your visited. Rather than watching people build wonderful web sites on a daily basis, you could now do the same. Just start by finding the right domain name(s). Once you have found the domain name(s) that are best for you, setup a web hosting account and start building your site. Internet marketing does not use the same tactics as conventional marketing, in some cases you may find that internet marketing provides you with more opportunities than conventional marketing and may even be easier. We could go on for days about why you must join the millions of people on the World Wide Web and launch a web site, but we won't. Instead we would like to end by encouraging you to start your own web site today and contribute to the Internet. It may be easier to watch although by acting the rewards will be far greater. If you need help or have any questions, please call us at 888-511-HOST.

Free vDeck Control Panel with Hosting

We all love free things. At iPowerWeb we understand this, that is why every web hosting account includes tons of great features at no additional cost. We do not want to make you pay more than what you are already paying for your web hosting account, therefore every iPowerWeb account comes with almost everything you will ever need to create and manage a great web site. One great feature included with every iPowerWeb shared web hosting account is the vDeck control panel. The vDeck control panel that comes with your web hosting account will enable you to build, manage and promote your site from one easy-to-use location. We don't think its right if you have to pay extra money to receive the essential tools for your site, therefore at iPowerWeb you could get everything you could possibly need in one package for a very low price. At the moment we have a sale on our web hosting plans, therefore instead of paying $7.95/month for a one year plan of web hosting, all you pay is $5.95/month for a one or two year plan of web hosting. Even at regular price our web hosting is unbeatable, but we recommend you purchasing your web hosting soon while the web hosting sale is still going on. Whether there is a sale or not, you will still receive an award-winning vDeck control panel with your new account.

Poll Web Hosting

If you are a web site owner we are sure that you want to know that you could do virtually anything you want with your web site. What we mean is that you want the possibilities regarding your web site to be limitless. It is a great feeling to know you could add an album at any time, create a forum, or have live streaming videos from your site. You may never use any of the features that are available with your web site, but just knowing that the tools are there is a wonderful feeling.
We would like to inform you that every IPOWERWEB BusinessPro hosting plan comes with a feature that allows you to have a poll on your website. In order to learn more about this feature or to access it, please login to your vDeck control panel and visit the Power Plugins section. In a matter of minutes you could have a poll on any page of your web site where your users are voting and providing you with any sort of feedback you desire. If you are in need of a web hosting provider that supports polls, IPOWERWEB is the right choice.

What Are PHP Libraries

It is quite difficult to know absolutely everything about the Internet, technology and web hosting. We are sure that even the most advanced users occasionally surf the Internet to learn more and refresh their memory. Here we try to provide you with all sorts of information regarding IPOWERWEB, technology, the Internet, and web hosting. For example you may be wondering what a PHP library is. PHP libraries are pre-written PHP programs. PHP libraries allow programmers to include the pre-written programs in their coding which typically saves a great amount of time. As PERL has PERL modules, PHP has PHP libraries and extensions.

Register Your Name

Domain names should be viewed as real estate over the Internet. We can only have one and one The same principle should be used with regards to your name. For example if your name is Jeremiah Trolly, the Internet will have only one Do not let others register your name, if your name is available register it as soon as possible. This includes the name of your children. If you have kids, do your children a favor and register their name for them. It only costs $6.50 per year to do this and it is a very easy process. All you have to do is visit our domain name registration page at, and register your new domain names. If you wish to do this with the assistance of an IPOWERWEB representative, please call us at 888-511-HOST. We look forward to seeing your name registered as a domain name.

JaMarcus Russell and Raiders Agree to Six Year Contract

Every once in a while we like to write about things going on outside of the web hosting and Internet worlds. For example, today we would like to tell you that the Oakland Raiders (the NFL team) and its first round draft pick of the 2007 NFL draft (JaMarcus Russell have agreed in principle to a contract that will guarantee Russell nearly $31 million. This is said to be the richest rookie contract ever. The six year deal is believed to be worth about $60 million and Russell should begin training with the team shortly. Now that the Raiders have signed their rookie quarterback people will surely begin setting extremely high expectations for both Russell and the Raiders.

Six Years Since 9/11

Today marks the 6 year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks to the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. Four commercial airlines were hijacked en route to California. The victims of the 9/11 attacks were predominantly civilians. The attacks on September 11, 2001 should never be forgotten.

iPhone Price Lowered to $399

Apple recently announced that the price of its 8GB has been lowered to $399 for the upcoming holiday season. The 8GB model is Apple's most popular selling version of the iPhone. The $200 price drop is quite significant considering the age of the iPhone, a phone that had been on the market for less than 80 days. In order to be in good terms with early iPhone owners, Apple has announced that it will provide all early iPhone owners with a $100 credit. The credit will surely please early iPhone owners who should be considered as Apple's most important customers. Many Apple enthusiasts were the first to own an iPhone therefore this move will surely please the iPhone owners.
The $100 credit could be used towards the purchase of new Apple products, which is a great deal for Apple. The credit will encourage people to purchase new Apple products, and in Apple's position they are hoping the users use the credit to purchase products that have higher margins for the company. The iPhone should not have any direct impact to the web hosting industry although we are quite sure that the iPhone will change the cellular phone forever.

One Millionth iPhone Sold

Many people believe that the Apple iPhone has and will change the cellular phone industry forever. People who had doubts on the impact of the iPhone may now have to think again. This is because Apple has sold its one millionth iPhone. Yes this is not a typo - 1 Million iPhones Have Been Sold.
Analysts were projecting that Apple was going to sell its millionth phone by September 30th - well Apple is ahead of schedule. Only after being on the market for 74 days, Apple sold one million iPhones and this number will continue to grow at an extremely rapid pace. The iPhone is a widescreen touch iPod as well as an Internet capable mobile phone. You could use your iPhone to visit your web site hosted by IPOWERWEB and even purchase your next IPOWERWEB hosted web hosting plan (which is currently on sale for only $5.95 per month). But Internet phone technology is not something new, many phones these days allow users to surf the net at any time of the day. Congratulations Apple - One Million iPhones Sold.

IPOWERWEB Hosting Is On Sale

YES...The title of this page is correct. IPOWERWEB web hosting is on sale.

Tell all your friends about it, IPOWERWEB only costs $5.95 per month!!

Web Hosting For Your Family Site

We all have family pictures and current news that we would like to share with our close friends and family, although it is quite difficult to mail all your photos to everyone you know and it takes lots of time speaking to each person one by one. If you would like to keep your friends and family informed on what is going on in your life and wish to do this the most efficient way possible, start a website.
Now you do not necessarily have to your website with iPowerWeb, there are thousands of web hosting providers out there. We just recommend that getting on the web will be the best thing for you and your family. You could create a blog, photo albums, email accounts, and much more. The possibilities are endless and your friends and family would love seeing what you have been up to. The web makes it possible for people across the globe to be connected at any time of the day. A person in San Francisco can video chat with his/her brother in China at any time. This is truly amazing and technology is only going to evolve and get better. Don't be one of the last people to get on the net and miss out on all the great opportunities, the Internet is here and use it to your advantage. Start by creating a website for yourself and your family in order to be better connected - your friends and family will surely thank you for doing this.

Pay Per Minute Support?

Some people may think that the level of support that comes with a $7.95/month web hosting plan will surely be horrendous. In many cases this belief will hold true, it is just too difficult to operate an efficient business when your products are priced so low. But in the case of iPowerWeb our price does not have any impact on our quality of support. What we mean is that you will be receiving the best 24/7 FREE support even if you have just one domain name with us. We value every customer and realize that if it were not for each customer we would not be where we are today. The title of this post does not apply to iPowerWeb. Unlike many web hosting providers who charge you for using their technical support (in some cases by the minute), at iPowerWeb we offer free customer support via live chat, email and phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are worried that our support may not live to your expectations, try giving us a call. We are always available at 888-511-HOST. We would love to hear from you...

Always Working on Design

If you own a web site you probably agree with the belief that your web site can never be a fully completed project. Rather the design of your site must always be a priority and you must always be working to perfect your site. This is no easy task and the design of your site will take great patience as well as trial and error. If you are new to a certain industry and are in need of some suggestions for the design of your site. Try taking elements you like from your favorite web site(s) along with points from your competitors sites - this will truly help you head in the right direction.
One thing we would like to tell you is that you should never give up when it comes to the design of your site.

English Wikipedia Has Over 2 Million Articles

The English version of Wikipedia, currently has over 2 million articles in English. At the time this page was written the English version of Wikipedia contained 2,001,520 articles. Wikipedia is a web based encyclopedia which is comprised of information from volunteers all over the world. Wikipedia has been on the net since 2001 and has become a commonly referenced site. People all over the world use Wikipedia on a daily basis and it is great to see the English version of Wikipedia break the milestone of 2 million unique articles so fast, congratulations Wikipedia.

French Web Hosting

If you live in France and are looking for a web hosting provider, iPowerWeb is your company. You could search on Google all day long for web hosting providers located in France although it won't matter at all. At iPowerWeb we are able to host almost all domain name extensions, including .fr. Your website hosted by iPowerWeb will load fast anywhere in the world, therefore it does not matter whether iPowerWeb is located in Phoenix, Arizona (the United States) or down the block from your home in France. As long as you are connected to the Internet you will be able to experience iPowerWeb web hosting at its finest and realize why almost one million people have selected iPowerWeb for hosting their web sites.
If you are worried that your web hosting provider must be located within your country or as close as possible, this is false. All you need is an Internet connection - that's it. You may find that a local web hosting provider may be best for you, but if you are limiting your possibilities due to location, do not do this. Whether its iPowerWeb or any other web hosting provider, all web hosting companies should be able to provide you with web hosting service and support. Currently, a great benefit in hosting your web site with iPowerWeb is that all of our prices are in US Dollars compared to most European companies who only accept the Euro. At the moment the Euro is far stronger than the dollar, therefore you will most likely be paying less if you host your site with an American company rather than a European provider.

Price Is Not Always Related To Quality

We always do our best to make sure that all of our web hosting users are fully satisfied and that we are exceeding your expectations.

How To Park a Domain Name

We hope that you are aware that every iPowerWeb shared web hosting account comes with a free domain name. YES, you do not have to pay for your domain name if you purchase iPowerWeb shared web hosting for at least one year. In fact you will never have to pay for your domain name as long as your web hosting account is in good standing and paid for. If you are not in need of a web hosting account and just want to have your domain name registered and parked, we could do that for you as well. At iPowerWeb we provide domain name registration services for only $6.50 per year.
So for the price of about 2 gallons of gas you could register a domain name for an entire year! Most companies will charge you over $20/year for simply registering a domain name, although at iPowerWeb we do our best to provide you with the best service and lowest prices possible.

Two Years In Prison For Texting

Drivers in the UK can now be sentenced to a maximum of two years in prison for text messaging while driving a vehicle. Currently the crime of text messaging while driving is punishable by £2,500 in fines and/or community orders. It is important to note that the most common offense is punishable by £60 in fines and three points against your driving record.
The title of this page is somewhat misleading, you will not be fined for just using a cellular phone while driving. Rather the law prohibits the use of many technological gadgets while driving, such as GPS systems and MP3 players. Unfortunately iPowerWeb cannot help you if you are in trouble with the law, although we are sure that these laws set in the UK will undoubtedly make streets safer and decrease the amount of automobile accidents in the streets of the United Kingdom.

Best Search Engine

There are so many search engines all over the Internet. How does a person decide which one is best for them. This is a very tough question and quite difficult to answer specifically. Today people all over the world use search engines to locate useful websites, although how do we determine which search engine is the absolute best.
To be honest, we really can't say there is one search engine better than all. Many people will argue that Google is the best of the best, although this may not be fully true. Imagine you are in need of a search engine that could retrieve websites and results based on natural language search. Clearly there is not one search engine that has mastered this at the moment. By the way, the key here is "at the moment". When most people search on Yahoo, Google or MSN we use keywords to find what we are looking for.
So lets say we are looking for information on planting orchids. Today when we search the major search engines we would try to find useful web pages by searching "planting orchids" on a search engine. We are yet to have a search engine that is fully capable of providing us web page results based both on keywords and natural language. In the case of planting orchids within natural language search, we would search by entering "How do I plant orchids in my backyard and keep them from dying?"
Our point here is that it is not right to say that there is one search engine greater than all. This answer to this question varies case by case and we at iPowerWeb do not favor one search engine over all others. So if you are looking for one search engine that is the best, do your own homework and come up with your own conclusion. No person can answer this question except for yourself because you know what you are searching for, not some person writing an article 50,000 miles away that you never met before.
We do know one thing though, people will continue to use search engines to navigate through the Internet for a long time and search engines will continue to make great advancements and evolve. Therefore this means that the future of the Internet is very bright.

Have As Many Pages As You Want

The title of this page is true. With iPowerWeb you can have as many pages as you wish, as long as you stay within your disk space boundaries. In the case of our BusinessPro hosting plan you will have 300GB of disk space. This means that you can have as many web pages as you wish as long as you stay within the 300GB limit. Your site can have as many pages as popular sites such as CNN, AOL, or MSN do. Well in theory you may even have more pages than these sites - the main thing is that you must stay within the 300GB limits. If you are not sure about how much space you have left, please visit your hosting accounts vDeck control panel or contact us.
If you are planning on setting up a new website and are not sure how many pages your hosting account will support, please understand that iPowerWeb hosting accounts give you the ability to have as many pages as you wish. So if you want 100,000 web pages - you could have 100,000 web pages. You are in full control of your website and its pages.

What is Domain Name Resolution

iPowerWeb is not only a great web hosting provider, we also provide many other products and services to help bring your small business to the next level. For example, we also provide domain name registration services. Domain names can be viewed as Internet real estate. Only one person can have a certain domain name with a specific extension. This means that there will only be one If you have a registered domain name and or a web hosting account you may have come across the term "domain name resolution". Nameservers are used in order for domain names to point to specific web servers. When the domain points to these name servers across all (or most) servers on the net, the domain is said to have resolved (or propagated). Most Internet Service Providers update their DNS tables with the latest routing information at least once each day. When an ISP has not updated their DNS tables, it is said that the domain has not resolved. It should not take more than 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to resolve to its new web server. If you wish to learn more about your domain name(s) and web hosting account, please contact our Customer Support Dept. at 888-511-HOST.
