WordPress, the most popular blogging tool ever that I’ve ever known. Everybody who writes blogs mostly use it as their blogging tool, either it is from WordPress.com or WordPress.org. Wait! Are there two wordpresses? Yes, there are. However, both are really WordPress original. Then, what’s the difference and why are there two? Let me throw away all the confusion below.

WordPress.com

WordPress.com is a commercial enterprise website with full-time developers, designers and support agents. Using WordPress.com, you can setup your blogs easier and free of charge. You get your own wordpress subdomain like xxx.wordpress.com by just signing up an account. Then, everything is taken care for you, including setup, upgrades, backups, and security.

What is even better is that your blog is located on hundreds of servers, meaning that it is impossible to  go down due to high traffic. Your posts are safe too as they are backed up automatically. Additionally, you get extra traffic from blogs of the day and tags or find bloggers that have similar mind to yours using tag and friend surfer.

WordPress.com has secured login using SSL so no one can get your account access even when you use wi-fi. It also offers more than 70 attractive themes that keep adding each day and you’re able to edit the CSS. The only little minus is only you can’t run a custom theme; but honestly, the features are all good.

WordPress.org
On the other hand, WordPress.org  is a free blogging software, which now the latest version is WordPress 2.71. Using this free software, you can create and setup your own blog plus install themes and plugins, run advertisements, edit the database, or even modify the PHP source codes.

And to be able to have all these, you just need a good web host to host your blog site. However, please remember as this is downloadable software, it requires more technical knowledge for you to master in order to set up and run it smoothly.

For backups, you may need to handle your own backups and when there is newer version of WordPress, you need to upgrade the software manually. But don’t worry! Now, there is an auto-updating tool to upgrade it automatically. But when you get very high traffic, you site might possibly go down unless you have a robust web hosting setup and environment.

Briefly speaking, you have now seen that both WordPress.com and WordPress.org have their own features so, you can decide youself the best version for your blogs and articles.

Ajax describes a large group of web technologies used to implement  web applications to communicate with the server in the background without any interference to the the page current state. But more than considering the description only, do you know that it offers you benefits that are hard to reject? Have you realized what makes AJAX so special?

Well, first of many pluses, AJAX has four basis of web standards and you’ll have no worries as they are well defined and supported by all major browsers. Using AJAX, web masters are able to create better, faster, and more user-friendly web applications. The four based web standards are JavaScript, XML, HTML, and CSS. Besides it is based on four web standards, Ajax also offers you with three faster capabilities. Check these out!

Connection

This must be something everybody’s looking for, faster connection. And yes it is. With AJAX, no necessity to connect the web page to server everytime. AJAX saves time for the interaction between web pages and server to improve the speed and functionality.

It also allows web page to request for smaller bits of information rather than request for the whole pages  to reload repeatedly. Surely, it results on speed increase as well. AJAX technology is based more to web browsers than to web server. Using this, you will not worry about connection and speed.

Updates

Updates are always important and that’s another stuff AJAX helps you. Whenever you’d like to update your website database, AJAX provides you with a unique feature to reduce time consumption. How? Honestly, other web languages will require you to update the database entirely everytime contents updates are necessary to be done.

However, with AJAX, you just need to spend time only on the contents updates that are required to be done. It sounds impossible but trust me that AJAX is able to select the contents that requires any updates only. It allows users to have easier process when they would like to update their websites.

Response

Another thing you should know and proud of Ajax is that it is capable to allow faster responses to any inputs even when changes are not done in the server. It responds quickly to inputs, which is definitely more responsive, although the application itself has not changed on the server side.

And what is unique about AJAX is it has the ability to reload section of pages individually without any difficulty. This is a user friendly advantage that users may benefit from. This benefit also enables users to get faster functioning of the websites.

So briefly, have you realized what makes AJAX so special by now? I am sure you have…
