Here’s an exclusive Infura coupon code.

15 Jul

I get a lot of emails asking for a recommendation on a web host.  So, here’s a dedicated post on my recommendation — Infura Web Host.

Here are 3 reasons why I recommend Infura:

  • Reliability. These guys have been around since 2001, which is a long time.  You know this isn’t a pet project that may close up shop 6 months from now.
  • Affordability. Their default package is $3.95/month for unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth.  Use the Infura coupon code “DavidTang” (yes, this is exclusive to my blog readers!), make that $2.95/month.  Let’s sweeten the deal even more!  Get the annual subscription for $35/year and get a free domain name for life.  Remember, Infura coupon code is “DavidTang” or just use this link.
  • Service. They provide 24/7 customer service.  Beyond that, they also offer paid script installation services, which is great for the beginner.  In fact, they even offer a script installation service for the 300K Job Page Search In-a-Box.

Here’s a lovely testimonial I pulled from their site… […]

Live Case Study: The case of 300,000 pages and counting.

11 Apr

This is my first live case study.  In this case study, I will build and grow an autoscale, autopilot, value-add site from scratch.  The purpose of this case study is to demonstrate techniques in real time.  With the exception of coding the initial site (these activities are tabulated under day 0), everything is done in real time, including domain registration.

The subject of this case study will be a a niche jobs search site, built off the Indeed API. is an established jobs search engine of US-based job opportunities.  They have a publishers program with an API that allows our site to pull the job results.  For job seekers that click through to Indeed, we will also get paid as a publisher.  A nice added bonus, eh?

Our niche job search site will focus on clerical jobs.  Within clerical jobs, we have 3 sections: 1 for accounting jobs, 1 for bookkeeping jobs, and 1 for auditing jobs.

Now, how does the autoscale work?

First, upon launch, the site will have 300,000 pages.  Note, this does not mean all 300K pages will be indexed by Google.  It only means a Googlebot will find 300K unique pages across our site.  Here’s how I came up with that estimate. […]

You want to start a site. Now what?

If you are looking to start a site, but have no clue how, then I wrote this article just for you.  Seriously.  In this article, I lay out 7 steps to starting a web site from scratch.

These steps are very prescriptive.  In fact, I will be recommending specific tools and services for you to use at each step.  These recommendations are examples.  You do not need to use the specified tools and services to accomplish each step.  However, as you will notice, these tools and services are either completely free or as low cost as you can possibly find!
