What Is The Domain Redemption Period?

The redemption period is a Domain Registry period of up to 30 days that occurs when a domain name is deleted after having expired unrenewed. Instead of just getting deleted and returning to the pool of domain names available for registration, the existing registry keeps a hold on the domain name in a what is technically called as REDEMPTION PERIOD. During this 30-day redemption period, the original domain registrant (owner of the domain) is allowed to retrieve the domain name from deletion by contacting their Registrar. This process costs an additional fee.

How to create automated backups using Microsoft SyncToy

How to create automated backups using Microsoft SyncToy

Always have duplicate copies of your most important information saved in a different location to keep it safe in case anything goes badly wrong with your computer.

Data loss can happen unexpectedly and suddenly, often without warnings – computer crashes, virus infection, hard drive failure, physical computer damage, theft.

In this guide I will show you how to create a SyncToy task that automatically schedules backups of your chosen folders to an external drive, internal drive (a different one from where your source folders are located), flash drive, network share, or a cloud service. We are going to use the Free SyncToy tool and Windows Task Scheduler. This guide is for Windows 7 users, however, it can also be implemented on Windows XP, Windows Vista (What?!! You’re really using that??), Windows 8 / 8.1.

Display An Alert Box On Your Web Page

How to display an alert box to users, showing additional information or a simple message.

The alert() statement generates a message box with the message you specify, and an OK button to close the box. The alert box takes the focus away from the current window, and forces the browser to read the message. The user cannot continue viewing your web pages until the box is closed.

Displaying Last Modification Date

Display information about the last time your web page was modified.

Displaying the last modified date and time of a web page is important for a web page with changing content.

A small line of JavaScript code will generate the date and time that you last saved your web page. Usually this information appears at the bottom of the web page. JavaScript uses the document.write() method to generate text, and the document.lastModified property to store the date and time when you last saved your web page. The JavaScript code must be enclosed within a starting and ending script tag.

The date and time information that appears is based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and it indicates when you last saved the web page on the web server.

Automatically Reload A Web Page

Web Designers needing to have a particular page to auto-reload, can easily accomplish such task just by adding a meta tag within the head section.

A web page containing dynamic content (weather, news, etc.) can change periodically. Refreshing the page ensures that users can see the most recent information.

Place a meta tag within the head section,
set the http-equiv attribute to a value of refresh,
then set the content attribute to the number of seconds you want the web page to automatically refresh.

.ASIA, .CN, .HK Domain Name Registration Scam

This has been going on for several years and still happening. Unfortunately, there are still domain owners that are falling for it. My intent here is to make more webmasters, domain names owners/investors, aware of such scams and lower the number of victims.

Yesterday I received the following message in my inbox, claiming to be from China Domain Registration Service and warning me that my company brand was in danger of being registered by a third-party.
Here is the message I received, which I’ve included divided into Internet Headers and Body:
