Hello There! Just few months ago, we improved our affiliate program by perfecting the commission payout scheme. Do you still remember what that is? If it is almost out of our memory, the best thing to do now is to refresh the idea once again.

Recapping – our earlier Affiliate Program allowed commission payout after the new customers from the sales made by our affiliates confirmed to us that they did buy through the affiliates’ websites. However, we found that it is too hassling for our affiliates who’ve spent their time and provided some space for us in their websites to promote our products and services.

That is why we tweaked the scheme much better. No more confirmation needed from the new customers for affiliates to receive their commissions. Right after 45 days of the sales date, affiliates’ commissions of 25% from total web hosting sales are directly cashed out (minimumly $10) to affiliate PayPal account.

What More Have We Improved Recently to Move a Step Further?
Continuing from what we did to improve our Affiliate Program, we have now used the latest version of our Affiliate tracking tool, to ensure that everything runs perfect for our affiliates. Yes, we happily announce that we have upgraded our Affiliate tracking tool (IdevAffiliate) into version 6, with better features and reliability.

With version 6, affiliates can have better marketing features and more accurate statistics about commission and traffic statistics generated from the affiliates’ websites. The marketing features are also complete and help the affiliates to be able to generate sales better, meaning that to get them more commissions from the sales.

The marketing features include the various attractive banners with various designs and sizes that affiliates can use and place in their websites to attract more potential buyers to purchase Host Department products from their websites. The step is really easy as they just need to copy and paste the banners’ html codes in their websites.

There are also text ads that contain influencing words about Host Department quality products. Using these text ads, affiliates will be able to advertise our products with the right and suitable marketing words. Affiliates can copy and paste the text ads linking codes to integrate in their websites.

Additionally, there are also email templates that affiliates can use to offer Host Department products to their friends, families, or relatives. We have provided the right templates for affiliates to use if they’d like to offer our products to people they know through emails.

With these features included, IdevAffiliate 6 will be the most powerful and helpful tracking software for affiliates to be able to achieve more sales and commissions. So what are you waiting for? With better tool provided and huge amount of commission offered, joining Host Department Affiliate Program will be a success for you.

MySQL, available in both UNIX and Windows, is one of the most popular database tools. As the latest version of MySQL, the perfected newer version, MySQL 5.0, provides you with many new features in this popular open source database server. It is incredibly fast, reliable, and easy to use for developers.

WHAT ARE THE NEW FEATURES?

To summarize, it is very simple and easy that MySQL 5.0 has added 4 great new features – trigger, views, data dictionary, and stored procedures. But of course it is not enough to just say those 4 words to describe how outstanding the features are. So, let’s not waste more time and know nothing by getting more!

Trigger

A database trigger is procedural codes that can be executed automatically to respond certain events on database particular tables. It is able to restrict access to specific data, perform logging, or audit data modifications. For the triggers, there are “row triggers” or “statement triggers”.

Row triggers is the action for every row of a table while statement triggers only happens once per INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement. And these statement triggers are those that MySQL Database support – INSERT Trigger, UPDATE Trigger, and DELETE Trigger.

Stored Procedures

Stored routines (procedures and functions) are supported in MySQL 5.0. A stored routine or stored procedures are the set of SQL statements that can be stored in the server. Once this has been done, You don’t need to keep re-issuing the individual statements. Instead, you can refer to the stored routine.

Stored routines require the proc table in the mysql database. This table is created during the MySQL 5.0 installation procedure. Once it is installed, users can refer back to any statements stored in the server without having to reissue again with this ability in MySQL 5.0.

Views

In database functionality, the views consist of accessible stored query as a composed virtual table of the result set of queries. And, it is not like some ordinary tables in relational databases, as views do not form the physical schema part.

Views that also include updatable views are available in MySQL Server 5.0. Views are stored queries that when invoked produce a result set. Here, in MySQL 5.0, the views act as a virtual table. You will find this useful for some queries.

Data Dictionary

Data dictionary, as you all may have known, is a centralized repository of information about data such as meaning, relationships to other data, origin, usage, and format. It is also recognized as meta data – the data of the data.

And as you know, this is one of the new additional features in MySQL 5.0 that contains document describing a database or collection of databases that you can access. Wonderful right.

Well, with these four additional features, you will find MySQL 5.0 as even more amazing database server that you  feel hard to resist or choose the other database servers.

It is no longer popular to use .NET framework 2.0. The time has come to use the latest version of .NET framework, the 3.5 version. Released in 2007, it offers many new great features compared to the previous versions, which are really sought after by developers.

Deep integration of Language Integrated Query

Language Integrated Query (LINQ) is the component that adds native data querying capabilities to .NET languages in Microsoft .NET framework 3.5. This is the first new feature you must be looking for. Using this feature, you will be able to write codes in LINQ-enabled languages to filter, specify, and create some types of SQL data projections, collections, XML, and DataSets with the same syntax.

LINQ also allows Visual Basic and C# (new language features in .NET 3.5) developers to access data from XML and relational databases in much simpler and faster way to code with less error and easier to maintain or debug.

.NET Framework 3.5, ASP.NET, AJAX

As everybody knows, ASP.NET AJAX offers you the ability to create quick, efficient, interactive, and highly personalized web experiences workable in all the most popular web browsers.  Unfortunately, earlier, ASP.NET AJAX should be a separate download installed on the top of ASP.NET 2.0.

However, with the beginning era of .NET Framework 3.5 release, all of these features are built-in within ASP.NET, which saves much of your time as there is no need anymore to download and install ASP.NET AJAX separately in application development.

The ASP.NET AJAX version built in .NET 3.5 provides a number of nice improvements  too- including support for using UpdatePanels with WebParts, WCF based JSON end-points, the ASP.NET Profile, Role and Login Application Services using JavaScript, performance improvements, and also fixes for bugs.

Full Support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

As the latest release of Microsoft’s best developer product, Visual Studio 2008 is there to provide many new great important features to help most developers to access data. Hand in hand with .NET framework 3.5, Visual studio 2008 complete .net with some .NET improvements – including Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), updated to support the growing popularity of REpresentational State Transfer (REST) much better.

The .NET framework 3.5 itself offers full support for Visual Studio 2008 like Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows CardSpace including the new workflow-enabled services technology.

Well, considering there are so many outstanding new features from the new .NET framework 3.5, who will not look for it? Even I , myself, find it so wonderful after knowing the features. So, let’s get ourselves to use it for better result.

When your site seems to be your whole life, SEO and SEM are no longer unfamiliar in your ears. However, do you really notice that they are different “roads” to take although they share the same idea, to drive more traffic to your site? Have you figured out which one to use for improving your site traffic? Or, deciding the best is still a big question mark for you? If so, let me help you erase all the confusion.

How is the Idea of Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Everybody must have the picture of what SEO is in your mind. Nevertheless, nothing wrong to review it again. Frankly speaking, SEO refers to the strategies of increasing traffic site with appropriate keywords or tags, site design and structure, coding, or whatever directed to natural site optimization to target different search types such as usual search, image search, or others.

SEO is done through the calculation of mathematics, computer languages, and linguistics to define what people search for and to attract more clicks on a website. It basically aims to improve the site rank in search engines, especially those leading search engines such as Yahoo, Google, or Microsoft. Why do you think rank is important? Very simple. The higher your site rank is, the better chance for attracting more visitors. And the higher traffic your site has, the higher your chance to grow your business and gain success.

And what about Search Engine Marketing (SEM)?

People say that SEM is almost or exactly the same with SEO since they share the same purpose, to drive more traffic. However, when you dig deeper, you will know they work on different paths. When SEO has stuffs to do with coding, computing languages, calculation, designs, and structures (simply free of charge if you can do it by yourselves), SEM already includes SEO and paid listing or inclusion. You get what you pay for. Webmasters define SEM as internet marketing strategies.

This term, SEM, didn’t appear suddenly. SEO developed as SEM when it began to expand the strategies into marketing and advertising chances, pioneered by leading search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, by paying some amount of money to get included or listed. These are obviously beneficial for your site traffic. You pay and they’ll do the job for you. When you decide to use SEM, that will cover all possibilities to increase your site traffic and rank, involving payment for inclusion in search engines and listing in directories, online marketing strategies, and the SEO itself.

To Decide which One…

This now depends on how far the online success you want to achieve. It is now very crystal clear that both are very essential for your website revenues. There is none that  is exactly the best. The combination between them will be a great chance for you to develop online. What you need to do is calculating how much budget you want to spend since SEM is more costly than SEO only. However, money does talk. You can say that what you pay is what you get.
