Can I just use DiaMatrix or do I have to go through UniForum?
Evaapps.com offers the registration of domains to the public. However, should you wish to register as a registrar, you must apply to UniForum. When the registration has been completed, you can then use the Evaapps.com EPP registrar solution.
How do I Create an Under Construction Page?
A ‘Coming Soon’ or ‘Under Construction’ page, is a placeholder page used to block public viewing of your website while it is in the process of being built and/or tested live on the hosting server.
The default pages that all servers will initially look for to display onscreen when accessing your website are as follows (in order of priority):
Create an Under Construction Page
– Login to your cPanel
– File Manager root folder (if it is the primary domain, use public_html)
– Click ‘New File’ – name it appropriately e.g. underconstruction.html
– Click Create New File
Edit an ‘Under Construction’ Page
– Select the filename and click HTML Editor
– Create the page and ensure that you include all your relevant contact information and a short paragraph about your company/products
Change your default Index Page in .htaccess
The .htaccess file is a hidden text file within your hosting account that can modify the usual behaviour of your website.
– In File Manager click on Web Root (addon domains use the dropdown and select the correct domain name)
– Ensure Show Hidden Files is ticked
– Click Go
– Right the .htaccess file
– Select Edit option and paste the following code at the beginning of the page use your filename e.g. underconstruction.html
#Alternate default index page
– Test it online to ensure you have done it correctly
Additional .htaccess Info
As an added precaution, you can add additional filenames to the above code and the server will check them in order from left to right. refer example below:
#Alternate default index page
DirectoryIndex underconstruction.html index.htm index.html index.php default.htm
How to Secure your WordPress site.
WordPress has over 64 million sites and was recently targeted for a DDOS botnet attack. The botnet cannot enter your site unless it is protected.
It tries to login with the default Username: admin and then tries common passwords.
The Daily Dot’s Lorraine Murphy has put together a great 4 Easy Steps to protecting your WordPress site.
Change default Username “admin” immediately!
Passwords need to be ‘strong’ with a combination of acceptable characters, numbers and capital letters.
Please ensure that you also change your administration email account’s password.
Two-on-two factor authentication. Please note that the latest version of WordPress is needed to enable this. This will enable you to receive your Username and Password on your cell phone as well as your email.
In a nutshell:
- Change your username to something long and unique
- Change your password to something more complicated
- Change your email password to avoid password retrieval
- Enable two-step authentication.
