How to Set up Private Wordpress Hosting for Less than $10/month

Posted by Rahul Gupta
Everyone is tired of shared hosting because of downtimes and very less control over our server. When we host our website on shared hosting, Actually, We are sharing our server with tens of other shared hosting users.

It means, we only get the small amount of resource of the server. For example, If shared hosting company has 1 server with 16GB of RAM, they will simply host 16 websites on the server and you will get 1GB of RAM too and shared computing power.

Serveravatar Review
It also means that if any of those websites is doing something fishy, your website will be affected too. For instance, If someone is sending spam Emails and the IP address of the server gets blacklisted on Gmail or Yahoo, The Emails sent by your website will be listed in the Spam folder too, because you are sharing the same IP address.

Average shared WordPress hosting will cost you around $5 to $15 per month. I have good news for you! Now You can set up your private WordPress hosting for less than $10/month. Considering you are getting constant traffic, this setup will handle thousands and thousands of visitors on a daily basis without affecting the speed of the website at all.

In this article, we will setup a Wordpress website on a cloud server or VPS with SSL certificate that will never actually expire, in less than $10/month. To be more specific, I am going to use a cloud server from vultr with 1GB RAM and it will cost me $5/month. If you are getting more than 5,000 page views a day, a cloud server with 1GB RAM is recommended. You can get it for $5/month.

To manage this web server, We are going to use ServerAvatar. It is a management panel for Cloud Servers. Using ServerAvatar, we will be able to configure our server and install Wordpress websites with ease (We won’t even touch command line at all). The reason we are going to use ServerAvatar is that we can speed up the configuration process (It takes hours to set up a server otherwise) by a huge factor (3 minutes to configure and 5 minutes to set up our website).

So, Here are the steps to setup your private WordPress hosting for less than $10/month.

  • Create a cloud server (Using Digitalocean, Vultr, Linode, etc.)
  • Connect a server with ServerAvatar
  • Install a Wordpress website with SSL Certificate

Believe me; this process will not take an hour! You can also set up multiple websites on your own server in seconds. Also, you can monitor activities on your server (We’ll see it later).

So, Without wasting any more time, Let’s get started with the process.

Create a cloud server

Many companies provide instant cloud servers. Some of them are Digitalocean, Vultr and Linode. You can create an account in any of these websites and get your cloud server ready in minutes. I have created an account in Vultr and I am going to create a cloud server in vultr. Here is how the process looks like.

When you first create an account in any of these websites, you will have to top-up your account so that you can get started! Just top-up your account with $5 because it’s the minimum value to top-up for the first time.

Once done, Click on the Servers section given in the sidebar and then click on the + button given on the right side of the screen just like the following image.
Servers
You will be redirected to a page with multiple options. Don’t panic, Here is how you are going to deal with those options.

  • Server Location: If you want a 512MB server for $2.5, select Miami. Otherwise, select the best location based on your traffic. If you are getting more traffic from the USA, selecting the USA based data center is best for performance. Similarly, if you are getting more traffic from Australia, Select a data center that is based in Australia.
  • Server Type: Select Ubuntu with version 16.04 x64.
  • Server-Size: You can select the plan you want. ServerAvatar supports servers with any size. For this example, I am going to select $5 plan with 1GB memory.
  • Additional Features: Here, you can select Automatic backups if you want. Otherwise, everything is optional here.
  • Startup script: It’s completely your choice. I am not going to upload any startup script because I don’t need it. Startup scripts are rarely used for custom configurations.
  • SSH keys: If you want to add your SSH key, you can! If you don’t know what SSH key does, skip this option too.
  • Server Hostname and label: It’s the name of your server. You can enter anything you want. In this case, I will simply enter test-server.

If you are using the server provided by other companies like Digitalocean or Linode, Server creation process will be almost same. The only difference will be termed.

Now, Click on the Deploy button and your server will be ready in 2-3 minutes! Once it’s ready, you will see Status as Running just like the following image.
Status as Running

Connect Server with ServerAvatar

Now, It’s time to create an account in ServerAvatar to manage this server. Click here to create an account in ServerAvatar. 

For our readers, there's a special discount of 10%. Simply use coupon code CTRICKS10 during checkout to avail 10% discount on ServerAvatar.
To create an account, you just have to enter your Email address and password. You will receive Email verification link to verify your Email address.

Once your account is ready, top-up your account with some amount to get started. Minimum amount to top up is $1 and if you want to pay on a monthly basis, Top-up your account with $4.

After that, click on the Add drop-down given in the top-right corner of the dashboard and select Server just like the following image.
Select Server
You will see a form containing three fields for Server Name, IP address and root password. This information is provided by Server provider. In case if you are using Digitalocean, you will get this information in the Email just like this.
Details
In case if you are using Vultr or Linode, you can find information on your control panel or dashboard. I am using Vultr for this guide and I can find information by clicking on the Server name on Instances section.

Just fill up the information and click on the Add server button. You will get a notification once your server is configured and ready to use just like the following image (You can also see the progress on Dashboard).
Server is Ready
Click on the notification and you will be redirected to a server panel! Server panel will show basic information about your servers like Memory usage, Disk usage and Server load. Also, these values are monitored and presented in a beautiful graph so that you can know what’s going on at any given time. Server panel looks like the following image.
Server Panel
Initially, you won’t see anything in Server monitor because your server is brand new. ServerAvatar will monitor the health of your server every 15 minutes. So, you will start getting to see usage graph in Server Monitor.

The first thing you should do on your server is to turn on the firewall. It is very easy. Just click on the switch given in the Firewall card on the server panel and firewall will be enabled on your server.

Install a Wordpress website with SSL Certificate

Now it’s time to create a website on our server! Considering we are doing all these on Cloud server, We are very fast! It is very easy to create a Wordpress website using ServerAvatar. First, make sure your domain is pointing to the right server. You have to update nameservers and put host as your server’s IP address in the domain’s main A record.

Now, Click on the Add button from the top-right corner of the panel and select Application. You will be asked to select the server. Currently, We just have one server, so we will select a server and click on create an application. You will see a form with some fields that look like the following image.
First of all, Enter the application name which is used to identify the application on a server and enter the domain/subdomain you want to host on the server. Make sure that the domain or subdomain you are adding is pointing your server.

In Application type, Select Wordpress. Once you select WordPress, you will see three more fields are revealed in which we will enter Wordpress information like the title of the blog, admin username and admin password. Fill the information and your form should look like the following image.
Select Type
Once you’ve entered the necessary information, click on the Create application button and ServerAvatar will create an application for you in less than 15 seconds.

Once the application is ready, you will be redirected to the application dashboard that will contain information like FTP credentials, Graphs containing the history of the application’s response time and load time. Application health is checked every 5 minutes if you are using ServerAvatar. You will be notified within 5 minutes if something goes wrong on your application.

Now, We want to install SSL Certificate in our application. ServerAvatar provides one-click SSL certificate configuration. To install an SSL Certificate, Click on the SSL Certificate section given in the sidebar of an application dashboard just like the following image.
SSL Certificate
In the SSL Certificate page, you will be able to manage the SSL Certificate of your Application. If you don’t have SSL Certificate installed, you will see an option to install it. If it is already installed, you will get an option to enable HTTP to https redirection, Update SSL Certificate (Only if you have installed custom SSL certificate) and Uninstall SSL Certificate.

If you haven’t installed SSL Certificate yet, you will see something like this:
Install SSL Certificate
To issue and install SSL Certificate automatically, Select the Automatic option from the drop-down and click on Install SSL Certificate. If you want to install custom SSL Certificate, select Custom from the drop down and enter the certificate information. Once the SSL Certificate is installed, You will see options like this.
Custom SSL
If you are installing SSL certificate for the first time on the server, it will take about 2 minutes to configure the server to issue and configure SSL Certificate. Otherwise, it will take less than 30 seconds to issue and configure SSL Certificate on your application.

So, this is how you can create private Wordpress hosting capable of managing multiple websites on a single web server and monitoring them. And we have spent less than $10 till now ($9 including taxes to be more specific).

Conclusion

The benefit of this setup is, you can create a highly scalable application. For instance, if you are on shared hosting and your traffic raises like crazy, you won’t be able to handle that much load and your applications might face downtime but it’s not the case with this setup.

It will take seconds to upgrade a server with higher memory and computing power. ServerAvatar will configure it accordingly and you will have an upgraded server ready to handle more and more traffic in minutes. You can even divide your WordPress application into two servers using ServerAvatar.

If you already have a website on shared hosting and want to migrate it to use Cloud server with ServerAvatar, you can contact ServerAvatar’s support team at support@serveravatar.com and they will migrate your site for you to this setup without downtime. If you have questions, you can comment them down in the comment section and we will respond back as soon as possible.

Learn How to Create a Charity Website If You Don’t Know How to Code

Posted by Rahul Gupta
Many websites today are operating on the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) which is the language the browsers of today understand. It is almost impossible to develop a website by a web developer without the prior knowledge of these two.
Create a Charity Website
However, for a non-developer, you can start a charity website without having a piece of knowledge on HTML or CSS. Coding websites using JavaScript enables the use of themes which contain placeholders for content to be placed on the site and these non-profit websites are not involved in this mechanism.

Top Charity Website Builders

There are plenty of services that show how to make a charity website. These are the top charity builders:

1. NING

This is a unique and one-of-a-kind platform which is primarily built for all kinds of charities. They contain features such as Social media integration, Integrated online donations, Membership subscription, etc. This platform provides you with pretty much anything you might need on your website, so you don’t need to create crowd-funding website but get your donations right through the platform’s e-commerce.

2. WordPress.com

As old as this platform is, it is one of the most established options to start a charity website. They are different from Wordpress.org but bear a connection to them. They contain features such as Large support page (a website donation page), optimized for Search Engine Optimization (SEO), charges at $2.99 per month and are easily exportable to free-to-download open-source content management system -Wordpress.Org.

3. Wix

Wix is one of the most influential and most popular platforms to start a charity website -small charities. They have features ranging from the drag and drop design elements to a free, very basic subscription version and an excellent mobile response.

4. GoDaddy

This platform is the largest domain registrar and under their management, they have over 60 million domain names. The salient feature that differentiates them from every other charity website builder is their backup and restore mechanism which allows saving of multiple copies of a site. Other features include; lack of flexibility, one-month free trial bonus and a 24/7 support system.
Other builders include; Weebly, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal and many others. You can use any of those stated above for practice.

How to create crowdfunding website or charity website

To create a charity website, there are specific steps to follow. You can of course always create just a simple site, but then probably you don’t want to open a charity website with little or no donations. That is why the following steps are worth your consideration. 

  • Develop the missions and goals: The first step to take before doing anything is to understand the purpose why you’re doing it. The mission explains the purpose and goals, which ultimately determines the result you get. On the website, your goals should be clearly and boldly stated so in case a visitor checks the site out, they understand the intent for its creation. A website with sloppy information on goals won’t certainly attract any donations. How well you define your goals determines how well people get engaged with the site. For instance, you may want to use the following:
    • Increasing donations
    • Raising publicity and awareness for a cause
    • Increasing supporter base and volunteers.
  • Choose an attractive name: When I say attractive, I don’t mean fancy; choose a name that best describes your cause. A name that would encourage people to participate in making donations. The charity website name could be in the name of someone or a specific mission to help raise funds for someone or others. For example, Child support charities, Blair’s Cancer Foundation Charities or better still describe a specific cause related to a place of preference, e.g., HIV/AIDS Research UK. Whatever the name is, it should be something one can recall.
  • Website start-up: I believe every charity organizations are in to raise money for the right cause, hence, the need for running a non-profit website. This is one of the most effective ways to reach out to a large number of people to make donations. A good charity website critically does five things:
    • Explains the organization
    • Explains the use of the donations
    • Builds trust and confidence: through profile endorsements, testimonials, years of operation, etc.
    • Has transparency in donations made
    • Gives information on other ways people can help.

In conclusion, creating a charity website without having a piece of knowledge about specific programming code is quite accessible and understandable, but it is always a difficult decision to choose what builder to use; hence, it is advisable to take decisions carefully to avoid giving more work to do. There is also the need for external supervision and support with the strategies involved.

Serpstat Vs. Semrush 2018: Who Wins This Race? [Detailed Comparison]

Posted by Rahul Gupta
Whenever it comes to SEO tools there are quite a lot of options are available. However talking about one of the popular tools, then it is definitely the Semrush. Also apart from the Semrush, we have also come across to this all in one SEO tool called Serpstat.

Serpstat comes with inexpensive pricing where Semrush has a premium pricing. So we thought about comparing both of these tools and tell you about it. 
Serpstat Vs. Semrush
Talking about the Semrush, it exists on the internet for so many years and has gained worldwide recognition. Where on the other hand the Serpstat is rapidly growing platform. 

So the question is as a digital marketer, which tool should I pick?
Well to know the answer to this question, simply read on, and we will explain the whole thing to you. 

Serpstat Vs. Semrush: Which one is better?

In simple words, we would say that Serpstat and Semrush have pretty much the same features. But Serpstat offers a little extra. 

However to get a better idea about both of the tools let’s talk about both of the tool's features. 

Domain Analysis

Domain Analysis a feature that both of the tools are offering. Now the question is how accurate data they are providing?

To know this, we have used a blog which has total 23 published posts. And here is what we have found:

Semrush Domain Analysis

When we checked the blog URL on Semrush, we have seen that the Semrush has displayed only nine organic keywords. 

Serpstat domain analysis

At the other hand, the Serpstat has come up with a number of organic keywords of 37.  

Now talking about the comparison, well, in this case, Semrush is the winner. Semrush has shown almost all the accurate organic keywords. At the other hand, the Serpstat showed the exact organic keywords along with the low searched keywords.  

It is like Semrush searches all the organic keywords of your websites and brings up the most search volume keyword. But Serpstat does not do anything like that.

However, we should remember the fact that Serpstat is a comparatively a new tool and it needs to go a long way ahead. 

Competitor Analysis

The primary purpose of competitor research is to steal the keywords of a website. Even it is one of the top SEO aspects. Hence Serpstat and Semrush are offering the feature. But the question is which one is best when it comes to competitor analysis?
In this case, the winner has to be the Serpstat. As it offers quite a lot of features, that helps the user to do competitor analysis in the easiest way.  

Serpstat keyword analysis

You can quickly check keyword data based on a country. Also, there are a few other options are also available on Serpstat that helps you to monitor these following SEO aspects:
  • Search volume according to Google Adwords
  • Domain’s position for a keyword
  • CPC
  • Number of results
  • Competition level
  • Number of words in a keyword
  • Special elements in SERP
  • Misspelled keywords
  • Duplicated positions
At the other hand, the Semrush does the job in a pretty good way. But the thing about Serpstat is that it offers much more information compared to Semrush. 

Backlink Analysis

The Backlink Analysis is another SEO aspect where Serpstat has received a win-win. During our testing, we have found that Serpstat has shown more backlinks number compared to the Semrush.  

Serpstat Backlink Analysis

Also, we have found that Serptstat offers a much detailed report compared to the Semrush. On the Semrush, you will not find stats like indexed backlinks, referring pages and so on. 

Backlink Analysis Semrush

Hence Serpstat comes handy if you are trying to steal your competitor’s backlinks. As backlink analysis will give you an idea of how many backlinks you would need to rank your blog. Also, it offers you more opportunities to create backlinks. 

Site Audit

Site auditing is another essential part of SEO, and thankfully both of the tools are offering the feature. 

Using the Serpstat's site auditing feature, you will be able to perform these following SEO aspects:
  • Serpstat Domain Optimization Score
  • Clean up your website
  • Don't miss new errors
  • Plan your SEM strategy and budget properly
At the other hand the with the Semrush's site audit tool you will be able to perform these following SEO factors:
  • Check site’s health with SEO analysis tool
  • Arrange SEO issues with priority & decide what to fix first
  • Track SEO optimization progress
  • Find and correct hreflang issues
  • Use HTTPS checks to Ensure safety of Your Website
  • Detect & find all possible AMP implementation issues
Now that you can clearly see that Semrush is offering more features when compared to Serpstat. So it is clear that when it comes to site audit, Semrush is the winner. 

But again, it entirely depends on your needs. If you do think that Serpstat could easily satisfy your requirements, then there is no meaning going with Semrush.

But if you need more features, then you already know the answer.

Pricing

When it comes to pricing both of the tools has a huge pricing difference. Where Semrush holds an expensive price tag. The Serpstats offer the same features at an inexpensive price tag.

Serpstat pricing

Serpstat’s pricing is divided into two parts. One of them is the personal and the other one is business. 

Personal pricing:

Serpstat Personal Pricing 
Business pricing:

Business Pricing 

Semrush Pricing

Semrush pricing is based on the monthly and yearly basis. Here is a look at them:
Monthly pricing:

Semrush Monthly Pricing

Annual pricing:

Semrush Annual Pricing

Final Words

After reading the above points, we are pretty sure that you have understood which one is better. However, if you ask us which one is better?

Then we would like to mention that, it ultimately depends on your needs. As a new tool, Serpstat offers excellent features with the most accurate data. Hence there is no harm in paying for their plans.

But if you are running a well established digital marketing company, then you should go with Semrush. However, you can also get a Serptstat plan to see how it is working for you and then make a decision. 

With that said, that was all for the Serpstat Vs. Semrush Review. Now go ahead and check both of the tools out and settle with the one that satisfying your needs.

These tools, unlike any other software, work with your phone either in normal mode or fastboot mode. They provide the bunch of settings and operations that can be through with on your phone. Which are, otherwise, quite complex to do in certain situations. Even though it's based on a command prompt, it does not involve you typing complicated commands which you may not be familiar with. 

Instead, it uses the button based navigation system, which means you are pressing the button which corresponds to the operation that you want to get through. It is easy to understand for both the tech-savvy as well as the normies among you.

Features of Android Multi Tools

Android Multi Tools allows you to:
  1. Get rid of the patterns and pin locks with ease.
  2. Hard reset your phone even if it is not booting up to the user interface.

Requirements to Download Android Multi Tools

These are the things needful for you to download and use Android Multi Tools:
  1. A Windows PC with any version of Windows installed higher than Windows XP.
  2. Internet access to download a 300 KB worth of fire which is the Android Multi Tools itself (duh!)
  3. An Android phone with any version of Android that supports USB debugging, which is higher than Android 2.2 as far as I can remember.
As long as you have these three things, you are ready!

How to Download Android Multi Tools

Here is a download link from where you can download the files related to the Android Multi Tools.


How to use Android Multi Tools on your android phone?

Installing the Android Multi Tools is not as straightforward as installing an app on your Android phone. You need to use Android Debug Bridge or ADB for this. Don't get overpowered by the name of the thing it's really easy. Just follow these simple steps, and you will do it in no time.

Now, there are two modes by which you can do these things. One in the usual way and the other one in fastboot mode. Will take a look at each one individually.

Normal Mode

Normal mode means that you have kept the phone in the on state without doing anything to it.
This is how you work in the normal state:
  1. Extract the contents of the downloaded folder to a location on your computer. For the time being, I suggest you extract it to a location on your desktop.
  2. Once the .rar file has been extracted, click on the app that says Android multi tools.exe and run it.
  3. Once you click on it, a command window will open up with a green background. Command window will show you a bunch of things that you can do using this tool on your phone. At this point, you need to make sure that your smartphone is attached to the computer via a USB connection. Note that you will have USB debugging mode enabled on your phone while you're connected to the network.
To enable USB debugging, follow these steps. First, open the developer settings by heading over to about phone. Second, by clicking on the build number about seven times. Now, when you hit the back button of your phone, you will notice that there is a new option available right above the about phone setting. Open it and scroll down to an environment which says USB debugging. Enable it by clicking on the slider or the tick box which is to the right of the option. Now press ok for the warning prompt that you are displaying. This will enable USB debugging mode, meaning that your phone can now be modified by connecting it to another device, such as a PC.
  1. Once you have plugged in your phone with a USB cable, press the number 1 on your computer keyboard to select the option check device on the terminal and then hit enter.
  2. Your device will show up on the list of devices connected. After that, press any key to continue.
  3. Now you need to select the second option for erasing the pin lock. Then the third option for deleting the pattern/gesture lock on your phone. After pressing the respective button, press enters and wait. Your smartphone should now be void of the pattern or pin lock. Which has been ready on it, and which you have unrecoverable.

Fastboot Mode

If you have managed to ruin the user interface of your phone. Your phone is now immobile on boot loop (also known as a soft brick state), you can still recover it by entering a fastboot mode. You will, of course, need to have fastboot drivers installed on your system and the way requires to be set up on your smartphone too. Lucky for you, the RAR file that you downloaded comes with a fastboot exe file. This helps the most and you won't have to look for it separately.

Just double-click on the fastboot.exe file, and it will reset the default drivers. Drivers that are already on the system of your phone and replace them with ADB drivers. This is precisely what we want for this mode to work.

You can check if your device has been adequately assumptive by opening the command prompt in administrator mode and then typing ADB devices and then hitting enter. You will see the same list of devices attached along with an ID of your phone. Don't worry if it's the exact ID of your phone or not, because it usually will be.

Now that you have ADB successfully installed and fastboot working on your phone. Now you can proceed to the fastboot mode of doing things on the Android Multi Tools. In the tool, press the key 7 for checking devices on fastboot mode and then hit enter. Once you have connected the phone in fastboot mode and pressed enter, you will see it in the list of devices. Now, you can once again choose the option that you want. For resetting your phone, select the option five that says wipe data and then hit enter.

Other than this, you can also reset the Gmail account that you have set up on your Android phone as the primary email, exit the first boot mode, wipe data and cache of your device in fastboot mode, go to the command prompt, fix the software information as well as the hardware information of your phone, reboot it as usual, and much more. This tool is handy to get you out of any pickle that you managed to get yourself into.

Conclusion

If you are feeling generous, there is an option to donate to the developer of this fantastic tool, which helped you in your time of need. When you press O and hit enter, their PayPal or bank transfer to support their projects.

Hope you found this article useful. Use this tool for your benefit and advise your friends who might be in need of it. Cheers!
