WordPress is one of the most popular CMS platforms. It constantly evolves and releases new updates.
The first question, most WordPress developers and WP website owners have on their mind, is – what are the features of WordPress 5.0? This post is primarily designed to address this aspect. Let’s take a look at some key WordPress 5.0 features
1. Change in WordPress release schedule
Those of you, who have been using WordPress for quite some time now, know that it works on a set release date based model. In the past decade, there were 2 major releases, each year. Amidst these major releases, multiple mini-updated versions were introduced. But with the 5.0 update, the schedule for WordPress 5.0 features update will be changed as well. There will be no predefined dates for update releases.
Therefore the WP users feel that the quality of the update is sidelined by the deadline. Hence to combat this issue, WordPress decided to deliver fewer yet more meaningful updates.
2. Gutenberg Editor and Plugin
If you are a veteran WP developer, then you would agree with me that the current WordPress visual editor is not intuitive enough to make visual changes. You need to utilize short-codes and HTML extensively before you can get the desired output. That being said, the Gutenberg editor is going to be one of the most sought-after updates in terms of the visual editor for WordPress. The core benefit of it is that it optimizes direct manipulation of the visual presentation of the content.
Bonus trivia: The editor is named after Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of a moveable type of printing press.
3. Mobile Optimization
Mobile experience is one of the most important aspects of any online journey. Everyone from UI/UX specialists to SEO experts have been constantly working on improving the mobile experience of the websites.
The WordPress 5.0 features promise to have updates that help improve the overall mobile responsiveness of WordPress based websites. This definitely looks promising and will go a long a way for both developers and marketers.
4. Cropping Background Images
A small update, but a functional one nevertheless. Previously if we were to do this, we would need to manually edit the image using tools like Photoshop and then re-upload them on our WordPress site. This is going to change and now you will be able to crop and edit background images before they go live.
Other WordPress 5.0 feature changes include security fixes and updating the front-end editor which will be lighter and faster. However, at this point in time, we do not have enough meat on the matter. We will be sure to keep you posted as we get updates.
Please don’t forget to check out our WordPress Hosting plans, which take care of automatic WordPress updates so that you never have to worry about missing out a WP update and lose any of the amazing features.
As you work through your long list of things to take care of before you launch your business, you’ll need a website, and of course, a domain name. Consider this your easy guide to choosing the right domain name for your business.
Why Domain Names are So Important You may have found during your research that you could snag a free domain name (also called a URL) from sites like WordPress, Blogger, etc. But in reality, a free domain name could hurt your business more than it helps. Besides the fact that you’re essentially advertising that brand rather than your own (usually the sites are something like mybusiness.wordpress.com or mybusiness.blogspot.com), there are other reasons why buying your own URL is the right decision.
Now let’s look at what you need to know how to choose your domain name.
Your domain name and website are your digital credentials. It’s important that you look professional and by investing a little time and money into the process of choosing your domain name and setting up your website, you can do just that. But once you do, you instantly establish credibility, and that helps get sales rolling in.

There is no doubt that cloud computing has revolutionized the world of information technology. Moving to the cloud is a choice that every business that is serious about scaling up must face. A critical step is understanding the right cloud computing model; for example- the difference between public cloud and private cloud. If the next step for your small business is to move your IT infrastructure to the cloud, this blog will explain the choices available to you and what they entail.
First, what is a ‘Cloud’?
Many businesses are still not quite sure what the ‘cloud’ is and how important it is for a modern business. ‘Clouds’ are virtualized data centres that are made available or shared to meet the dynamic demands of any business application that wishes to plug into it. As everything here is entirely virtualized, cloud computing can be more efficient and valuable in terms of cost than regular, physical data centers.
What are common reasons that companies use the ‘Cloud’ for?To set up and manage;
Businesses do this in 3 main ways:
Through the ‘Public’ version of the ‘Cloud’- also known as ‘Public Cloud’:
In a ‘Public Cloud’ model, services are rented out by the Cloud provider over the internet to the public on a pay-as-you-go model. In other words, if you, as a small business, require cloud computing services, you can partner with a cloud service provider that will be responsible for the set up, upkeep and management of the data center and services for you, freeing you from having to purchase, manage and maintain all the infrastructure yourself. As you can gather, most companies who favour a public cloud do so to save deployment time and management complexities. Unlike the popular opinion of public cloud services, security breaches are in fact quite rare.
Who are the top Cloud providers in the industry right now?
Other notable providers include OpenStack, IBM, Oracle and Cisco.
Exclusivity is the defining characteristic of the Private Cloud set-up. The services are for the dedicated use of a single organisation. As you can guess, however, this model will need to be managed with your own internal resources. Servers, storage and related infrastructure will be owned and paid for by your organisation.
How do you benefit with a Private Cloud?
Difference between Public Cloud and Private Cloud -in summary:
Most companies today, however, would insist on a combination of the two- or what is know in the industry as ‘Hybrid Cloud’. The Hybrid Cloud offers the benefit of both models including a feature that allows you to deploy applications on the private cloud and utilize resources on the public cloud during demand spikes.
Did you get a simpler, clearer understanding of the difference between public cloud and private cloud and what computing model would work? What choice have you made for your business? Let us know!
Since we are on the topic of the ‘cloud’, if you are looking for an easy, affordable cloud solution, be sure to try our unique Cloud Hosting product.

Cloud Computing is the present of technological advancement and a glimpse into what the future will be. It has integrated itself firmly with technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) etc. and has changed the way users store, access and exchange data across the globe.
Cloud, in a nutshell, solves several issues by making collaboration simpler over the internet. Not only that, it eliminates the need for expensive external hardware and storage devices. There are primarily three types of cloud viz. Public cloud, Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud, as well as, three types of cloud models viz. SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.
In this article, I’ll walk you through what Hybrid cloud is, its benefits and when should you as a business decide to make the switch.
Let us begin by understanding the building blocks of Hybrid, Public and Private Cloud.
Benefits of Hybrid Cloud:
Hybrid cloud is a combination of public and private and has the benefits of both. Here we see the top 3 hybrid cloud benefits.
Having seen what a hybrid cloud is and the advantages it has for your business, the pressing question is, should you switch to hybrid and secondly when to switch to non-hybrid models?
Chances are you’re an old-school business and have always used the traditional way of computing. Asking you to switch from the traditional model to cloud can be a bit intimidating as you may be wary of trusting a third-party service provider with your data. In that case, a hybrid cloud comes as the rescuer, blending on-premise, private cloud and public cloud services.
The decision of switching to either a public, private or a hybrid cloud totally depends on your business model, as well as, the hardware and software capabilities of your business. If you have sufficient on-premise infrastructure, then you can opt for a private cloud or a hybrid cloud. Also, if you wish to move your business completely over the cloud and not worry about managing the infrastructure, then a public cloud is the one you should switch to.
Also, since you’re reading about the cloud and the various models, you can even visit our website to know more about our Cloud Hosting. It helps businesses by providing infrastructure and easy maintenance, as well as, management of data, enabling you to concentrate on building your business.

Pros and Cons explained
We all await the change WordPress is bringing to us with the Gutenberg WordPress Editor! It is the new core element in WordPress.
“The goal of the block editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable.”
– From the Gutenberg plugin description on WordPress.org.
The latest version of WordPress has a visual editor that has been standard for years. Writers in today’s day and age expect a refreshing experience on the platform. This led to a team working behind the scenes to introduce something that every WordPress user wanted, a new editorial system – Gutenberg Editor. The goal was to make WordPress enjoyable and easy to use for everyone. A change like this was a long time called for and has many pros and cons. Let’s dive deeper to understand more about the Gutenberg editor.
What is the Gutenberg Editor?
Gutenberg is an editor for WordPress. It was named after Johannes Gutenberg, who was the inventor for printing press 500 years ago. Liked we mentioned earlier, the goal is to make WordPress a simple platform to use. The current platform requires us to use shortcodes and HTML to get work done. However, the internet has evolved from the time WordPress was created, which came with increased popularity for content block style of writing. Meanwhile, WordPress has come up with many visual editors like Elementor, Beaver Builder etc., but is now incorporating its own ‘content block’ editor soon in the name of Gutenberg. We can be fair and say that this software is still in the developing phase. The hype makes us all curious about what this change is all about.
Pros of Gutenberg Editor
Cons of Gutenberg Editor
Gutenberg Editor – currently a Plugin
At this moment, Gutenberg Editor is only a Plugin to any WordPress site. One can download it from the WordPress Plugin Directory. It is updated on we weekly basis with additional features. This is in beta phase and needs to be used with care.
You can install it on the WordPress version 4.8 to use it. The latest version of Gutenberg Editor can be found on the WordPress dashboard in the tab “Add New” plugins. However, it is recommended to install this on a test site.
One of the bright sides of WordPress as a platform is that it is constantly evolving. WordPress focuses on sprucing up its main features.
The Gutenberg Editor feature is undoubtedly the most awaited. The WordPress development team has worked to give us a better experience with the platform making it simple and enjoyable. WordPress has released a beta version as a plugin for developers to test this. We are sure the final version will make lives of WordPress Hosting users far easier with a fresh experience!
In 2017, Daniel Middleton from the UK made more than 12 million pounds through his YouTube channel alone, making him one of the highest YouTube earners in the world. While it’s not easy and there are millions of YouTubers who make far less from the platform; reaching this number is very possible if you have your eye on the real prize – creating content that an audience loves. To help you get there, here’s a comprehensive guide to help you understand how to earn money through your YouTube videos.
How to earn money using YouTube:
Create great content and generate a large following:
YouTube allows monetization through its Partner Program (which we’ll talk more about later) for a channel that has 4000 watch hours in the last 1 year AND 1000 subscribers.
If you’re not there at the moment, don’t be disheartened. Most YouTube channels making money from the platform worked their way up for a considerable amount of time focusing first on putting out great content. Here’s a look at the top YouTuber right now. While you note the amount of money this channel earns, also note the date that it was set up.
You can look at the entire list at socialblade.com
(which is another large search engine itself).
Research search terms or keywords for every video that you upload and feed that into your keyword tags, video description and video title. There are various ways to ensure you have the right keywords for your video:
Note- YouTube (like its parent Google) is intelligent enough to detect inaccurate, inconsistent video descriptions. Attempting to scam YouTube could lead to severe penalties for your channel.
1-Type the content that your video is about into the YouTube search bar:
This should give you some idea of what people are currently looking for with regards to your video
2-Take a look at the competition for a few of the keywords that comprise your content:
You can accordingly decide which one you want to focus on more to attract that specific search audience.
3-Another tip is to look at the top video in the search results for each keyword:
Take a look at their video titles and description and note what seems to be working for that particular video. You may find that they will not have optimized their videos at all but have risen to the top based purely on amazing, engaging video content.
4-Look through other keyword research resources such as ‘Google Trends’:
Type your keyword into Google Trends and select ‘YouTube Search’.
Scroll down to look at ‘Related Topics’ and ‘Related Queries’ and switch between ‘top’ and ‘rising’ queries for more ideas.
5-Select the Video search option in Google:
Another tip is to look at the video search results for your keyword in the Google search engine and note the videos that come up here.
6-Feed the keywords into your video description:
Remember to include both short and long-tail versions of your keyword. Also try and ensure that the first 100 characters of your video description includes your keyword and is exactly what you want a viewer and YouTube to know about your video.
7-Check the video transcription:
The transcript of your video also plays an important part in expanding your reach. Not just to ensure it comes up in related searches, but also to communicate accurately to viewers who are differently-abled in terms of their auditory senses and those who may find the accent in the video difficult to follow. While YouTube automatically transcribes your video, the bot is known to make mistakes especially when it seems to have trouble recognizing the accent of the speaker. It is much better to transcribe the video yourself to ensure it is 100% accurate.
YouTube allows you 3 ways to do this as you can see below.
Earning money through YouTube – Method 1 : Ads:-
Apply to join the YouTube Partner Program:
The YouTube Partner Program will strategically place ads in or near your videos. As a YouTube creator, you will earn money based on how many ad views you receive. To join the program, YouTube asks that you meet the eligibility criteria of 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours in the last 1 year. Once you apply, YouTube reviews your videos to also ensure that your content does not contain:
To join the YouTube Partner Program-
Connect to your AdSense Account:
Follow the instructions given in the next screen to connect your channel to your AdSense Account where you can earn money on ads that YouTube will place in or near your videos. It may take upto 48 hours for the connection to get activated.
Set your monetization preferences:
As soon as your channel is approved, choose the kind of ads you want to run for your videos and also if you want all or individually selected videos to be monetized.
The kind of ads you can choose to appear near your videos will be:
You should then see the monetization icon next to your videos.
However, if you see a yellow icon instead, it could indicate that your video is not suitable for advertizing or just for select ads and could receive just a few ads.
Earning money through YouTube – Method 2 : YouTube Red:-YouTube Red is the premium version of the platform which offers several benefits including ad-free videos. You will earn money from YouTube based on how often viewers choose to watch your video content. Unfortunately, YouTube Red is only available to select countries at the moment.
Earning money through YouTube – Method 3 : Exposure to big advertisers as an Influencer :-If your content is great and a hit with audiences, there will be a ton of brands who would love to partner with you to help create content for them (such as reviewing or talking about their products) especially if your audience profile matches their own.
I’m sure we don’t need to talk about remuneration here. However, you will need to notify YouTube by selecting the check-box that says ‘video contains paid promotion’. YouTube will still run ads for your video but will filter out ads that conflict with the brand you are endorsing.
Earning money through YouTube – Method 4 : Merchandising!If your video subscribers are the ultimate fans, they will want to possess your own branded merchandise. There are a ton of YouTubers who do this really well – one of my favourite examples is ‘Cole and Marmalade’ (cat videos, of course!). Merchandise from their videos is used to support animal foster care. You can place links to your merchandize in the description.
Even better, just this month, YouTube rolled out a feature that places merchandise links alongside your video. At the moment however, YouTube has enabled this is select countries only.

As you can see, this is also a great way to drive traffic from here to your website or alternatively (if your website happens to generate more hits) to your YouTube channel. If you have a WordPress website, you could use the WP YouTube Live plugin to automatically detect live videos from your Channel and display it on your website.
Earning money through YouTube – Method 5 : Selling paid membership Just this year, YouTube is allowing creators (currently only in the US) to sell paid membership to their subscribers at $4.99/month for exclusive returns such as shout-outs in videos, special access to other videos and more.
