Commonly used web hosting terminology.

Commonly used web hosting terminology.

I discuss some of the more basic web hosting terminology used.  This is the link I used for the glossary of terms.

This episode may be a little basic for some listeners, but I want to make sure that everyone knows the terminology and language that we talk about. My hope is to bring some listeners up to speed that may be confused by some of the terminology used in hosting. Again, this episode may not be fore everyone.

Additional information you should know:
Google will be marking all sites that DO NOT use https, ie http, as not secure starting in July 2018.  This will happen with chrome 68. If you are not using https on your website, you have a limited time to get this going. What this means is users to your site will start to see a “not secure” icon in the title bar.  This has the potential to scare away your users/customers.  If you are currently not using https, your SEO is most certainly being affected, this is another reason you really should be using HTTPS.

Gutenberg is coming to WordPress 5.0 are you ready?  For those of you that may not know, gutenberg is the new editor that is coming out in wordpress 5.0.  There is a current test release you can install through a plugin.  I would not recommend doing this on a live site, it is still quite beta and breaks a lot of things.  It is coming though, so if you have a test site I would recommend installing it there and take it for a spin. More info on WordPress and gutenberg can be found here.
