We often advise clients to inv a little money into SSL certificates and various hacker-proof and virus-free seals from third party providers that will check your website daily and update your seals automatically. Make sure these seals are visible and people can actually notice them. As for the SSL certificates – the customers will see that transaction they’re making at your website is secure, that can be easily called the most important security measure you can take.
What is an SSL Certificate?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard technology behind establishing an encrypted connection between a web server (host) and a web browser (client). This connection between the two makes sure that all the data passed between them remain private and intrinsic. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites to protect their online transactions with their customers.
SSL certificate is a web security protocol and essential for protecting your site visitors’ sensitive data against fraud and identity theft. SSLs guard data by providing encryption (scrambling of data to prevent tampering during transmission) and validation (verification of the business behind the website). SSL certificates come in different levels of security, depending on the level of protection and security features you need. Often, these features are obvious – Site Seals, HTTPS, and the “green bar” are all visual indicators of a protected site – other times, the security is behind-the-scenes. No matter what level you choose, SSL protection reassures visitors that your site is safe, leading to greater customer trust and increased reliability for your business or brand.

A subdomain is a second website with its own unique content, but there is no new domain name. Instead, you use an existing domain name and change the www to another name. The subdomain name looks like forums.domain.com, help.domain.com, help2.domain.com (assuming you already host domain.com).
An addon domain is a second website, with its own unique content. This type of domain does require you to register the new domain name before you can host it. So, if you want to host www.otherdomain.com, this is the solution.
A parked domain is NOT a unique website. Instead, it is a masked forward to the primary domain name of your cPanel account, much like a website alias. Parked domains are commonly used when:
- You need a place to park a domain for which you do not have a website
- You have more than one domain that should lead to your primary domain
- You have common misspellings of your domain name that you have registered

Q: What exactly does website migration imply and what does it involve?
A: When your current web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the needs of your site, or if you experience regular downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours/days for the help desk support staff to get back to you, it may be smart to switch your provider, i.e. to migrate all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your current provider to your future provider. At ediarohost, we are aware that this can be hard & time–consuming. That is why we will accomplish all that for you for free! Our highly qualified technical staff members will move your website content from your current hosting provider to us. Our technicians have got lots of experience with web site migration and can handle everything – from a conventional WordPress blog or Joomla CMS–powered site, to a highly elaborate, custom–built web app.
Q: Will you make sure the website works exactly as it did before the migration?
A: Yes we will. We run a sequence of steps to ensure the site is working in the new environment. After the migration we have a check list that our Migration Specialists go through to ensure the migrated site works as it did before.
Q: Will my current hosting provider know I’m leaving them?
A: In most cases we can move sites seamlessly from your current hosting provider, without them knowing.
Q: Which hosting providers do you migrate from?
A: Our migration service can migrate your website from any web hosting providers hosting package.

Q: How long does a website migration take?
A: We can’t give an exact migration time as it depends on the complexity of your website and also our current workload. However, we aim to migrate most websites within 48 hours averagely, but it’s usually much quicker. For simple sites, we can usually complete the move within 24 hours.
Q: What information do you need from me for the migration?
A: All we need is the login details (control panel link, username and password) to your old host, and the domain name(s) you’d like to migrate. We will do the rest. If we have any questions we will correspond with you.
Q: Is there any downtime when my site is being migrated?
