Benefits of HTTP/2 and How it Boosts your Site

Benefits of HTTP/2 and How it Boosts your Site

Providing a consistently fast and reliable shared hosting service for our Vodien customers is no easy task. We are always on our toes to ensure that we equip them with nothing but high-performing tools and technology for superior website performance.

If you’re already familiar with HTTP, it’s an underlying protocol that lays the foundation of how the World Wide Web functions. It defines how digital communication is formatted and delivered between web servers and browsers. It started in 1991–and since then–has gone through numerous updates over the years.

Since it requires loading a huge number of files to load websites today, the legacy HTTP implementations may bring about certain limitations. One of the feared limitation is the increase in latency (amount of time to deliver the packet from one network to another) causing web page slowdown.

Good news! All Vodien shared servers now supports HTTP/2. Read on to learn more about the enhanced browsing experience with HTTP/2 and how you take advantage of this implementation to boost your website.

Vodien Website Migration: How We Do It

Vodien Website Migration: How We Do It

Migrating thousands of websites on a monthly basis is one of the many things we do here at Vodien. We have a dedicated team of Migration specialists handling websites and email transfers to Vodien, ensuring a seamless migration experience. We offer website migration service free of charge as part of our onboarding process for our new/existing customers.

While site transfers are generally manageable to do, what’s challenging is when we’re moving websites hosted on another web host. Moving to another web host is just like moving to a new home. You can only say you have successfully moved if it’s done right.

There are crucial variables involved. When moving to a new house, you need to search for a new location, work with a real estate agent, prepare your belongings, and move all your stuff physically to your new place.

It’s similar to site transfers–only it’s done digitally. So, you purchase a new hosting plan, audit all website essentials, create a full site backup, transfer to the new host and let your domain point to your new host’s DNS (Domain Name Servers). We believe some of our customers want to know how it’s done, so we’d like to share that with you.

Do You Know if You’re a Domain Squatter? Let’s Find Out.

Do You Know if You're a Domain Squatter? Let's Find Out.

As website owners, it’s easy to assume that domains are just like other types of commodities that can be owned for a lifetime. The reality is, domains are not owned but are rented for a few years at a time.

Domain registrations are similar to utilities (water, electricity, rent, etc) that you need to pay regularly to continue using the service. This has led others to go the unethical route by profiting from this setup.

A domain squatter or cybersquatter registers a certain domain name with the bad intention of flipping them for profit from someone else’s trademark. If you’re in the business of domaining, you might want to read this article to understand what domain squatting (cybersquatting) is and why you need to stay away from this route.
