Site5 speed test on basic plan (customer site)

From our test, the website speed test result is remarkable. And with our own shared hosting account, we have conducted various server speed test and verifying their site performance. We want to know how fast is this plan and either it meet user expectation or not. Most business hosting users are concern of website loading speed or delay and they always ask for the faster hosting service for their company website.

Site5 Speed Test

Our hosted website is currently running from their hosting plan and this is what we going to use for test. This website is with total page size of 221 kilobytes is loading time only takes 0.576 second only. Our average transfer rate of over 300KB/sec. This clearly shown their shared server speed is faster compare to iPage speed, Powweb speed and Ipower speed at around 110 to 130 kilobytes per second respectively.

Why their shared hosting is faster and having the shortest delay time? Here are the few point to consider. They are not overselling their service and server, this mean less user per server. They use the most advanced network infrastructure and this mean highest transfer speed.

Another great way to check your website speed is to allow your website visitors to tell you about it. Invite your friends to visit your website by using their computer, ask the to time it and let you know on the result. If they are getting the near similar result of what you get, that is a good sign. If they are appearing much slower, there are things went wrong and need for a look. There might be some compatibility issue or certain features not available in their computer that caused that. Check on the cause of problem and identify the issue that make your website slow. Fixed it after knowing that, and retest your website once again.

It allows unlimited account reselling and uses cPanel with WHM. In additional, it provides free billing software and domain reseller account; which makes thing even better.

The process of domain backordering is relatively simple to users who have registered a domain name. However, it is an also be done by beginners by following the essential steps as outlined below.

  1. Determine domain names expected to expire.
    This is perhaps the most common step in domain backorder process. Clients are required to collect a detailed and precise data on the list of expiring domain names. This will help in deducing facts and decision making on whether to backorder a domain name or leave it.
  2. Placing a backorder.
    After deciding on which domain names to backorder, one is required to place a backorder to the domain registrar before the expiration date of the domain names. Thus, the domain registrar is vested with the ability to grab the domain for a user immediately it will drop.

Consequently, when an entity successfully captures a domain name, there are things involved. In case where an entity was the only on that backordered a domain name, it wins and therein awarded an access to that domain name. On the other hand, if two or more users might have backordered the domain name long before it dropped, then the domain registrar has no choice but provide the users an equal opportunity. This is done by a private or public auction to those who had backordered the same. Hence, it is from there that a user can win or loose the domain name backorder process.

For this case, users will be required to make a competent decision. Most important is that users should determine how much they are able and willing to pay for the particular domain name. Alternatively, users should determine the best time to place their bids. Normally, it is strategically to place bids on the first or last day of the auction period.

What is domain flipping? Domain flipping is the process of buying a domain or website, which can probably be junk, and redesigning it, fixing it up and finally selling it for a profit. This is quite a noble way to create an additional passive income by simply using your computer with an internet connection right from home.

Other reasons why domain flippers can buy websites include those domains that might have not been renewed. Similarly, website owners can stumble to natural calamities like death and their website is lifted for sale. There are also a myriad other reasons as to why domain flippers can buy websites.

Most of these domain selling sites offer domain names at standard prices of between $50 and above. Great web developers can buy a domain name for as little as $70 and flip it well then sell it for $1000 after a one year period. This is the sale price besides the passive income that is accrued from the domain almost monthly.

Finally, with the above tips in mind, and a basic knowledge in domain name backordering and flipping, it is evident on how web developers can make lucrative income by simply buying a website that is almost of junk quality at a low price and redefining it with quality and essential content so as to sell it at an incredible profit.
