Why do I need to use VPN? How will you get it? And what cost?


Ok Ok.. today's topic is very technical but let me clear, even my dad can install and configure VPN Server...

Why use VPN?

Privacy

Especially you don't want to let ISP know what media or content you are accessing. You can get those block contents on your ISP site. By using VPN you are not accessing those media or content through your ISP, Now you are accessing from a country where actually your VPN is hosted.

Security

When you are surfing from free internet areas such as coffee shop or restaurant, hotel, airport or mall you must need to use VPN. It's not a secure area, some  hacker might use the same network and they can know easily what you are doing even they can know your credentials such as password or credit card information. VPN makes a secure tunnel so your data is encrypted and a hacker could not know the actual information.


Accessibility

You can connect multiple devices and from different places to your VPN. Wen you connect you VPN it will assign IP to your device. You can share files and even access same VPN network devices easily.

How many types of VPN protocols and technology?

PPTP VPN, Site-to-Site VPN, L2TP VPN, IPsec, SSL, MPLS VPN & Hybrid VPN are the types of VPN.

Here I am talking about SSLv3/TLSv1 protocols which OpenVPN use, it  provides a strong, fast and reliable VPN solution.

How will you get it? And what cost?

First, you need reliable VPS service provider. I recommend lowendbox.com to buy VPS, It's VPS reviews site. You can find services provider between 3 to 5 USD; annually contract. (You can get a little VPS for just $2/month at Host1Plus.) Install ubuntu and reset a password. Now if you are windows user download and install putty. login with root and by cd .. comand go to the root directory. copy wget https://git.io/vpn -O openvpn-install.sh && bash openvpn-install.sh
and crt+shift+v to paste in a terminal and hit the enter button. follow the instruction and create a profile. Download VPN client from http://www.simplyexpats.net/openvpn-windows-setup-guide.html
and profile from your VPN server.  import profile locally and wallah,  ready to access VPN...

4 Best Autoresponders, Zero Monthly Fees

How to save money on autoresponder is a big question of beginners ? [Excuse my english]



internet marketers, bloggers, and affiliate website owners need accurate autoresponder that can have a higher delivery rate, more automated function and complex report system. Most of them are either use aweber or getresponse, these both are pretty good in delivery and functionality. there are several others quality services providers such as MailChimp, iContact, Constant Contact.

Let me bifurcates who use which services and why?

Affiliate website owners and many internet marketers are preferred to use aweber or getresponse because they not only provide subscription and automation functionality but they give an opt-in page or similar to say hosted squeeze page with ready to go templates on various topics.

Bloggers are often using MailChimp for awareness send update notification purposes.

I  have noticed several times that very well know affiliate profiles and internet marketing celebrities use combination of autoresponders and page builders aweber/getresponse + leadpages or MailChimp + instapage

Below are different autoresponder services, and their monthly charges based on the number of subscribers in your account. 


Subscribers
500
1,000
2,500
5,000
10,000
15,000
AWeber $19.00 $29.00 $29.00 $49.00 $69.00 $149.00
GetResponse $15.00 $15.00 $25.00 $45.00 $65.00 $105.00
IContact $14.00 $19.00 $29.00 $47.00 $74.00 $109.00
Constant Contact $15.00 $35.00 $35.00 $55.00 $85.00 Contact
MailChimp $10.00 $15.00 $50.00 $50.00 $75.00 $150.00

But now I would like to come to my purpose of writing of this post saving money on autoresponders

Few combinations are here (Self Hosted)

imscrapidmailer $67 (one time cost) + Amazon SES/ SendGrid/Mandril (no more in use)/MailJet

interspire $495 (one time cost 1 user)  + Amazon SES/ SendGrid/Mandril (no more in use)/MailJet

mautic  (opensource)  + Amazon SES/ SendGrid/Mandril (no more in use)/MailJet

Protect Against WordPress login attempts

This is my first self-written post on my blog. Today I would like to share about "Protect Against WordPress login attempts" it's very basic protection you need to do with your WordPress.

Often time Wp user felt that WordPress admin part (backend) is very slow. Sometimes web pages are not loading properly and showing (Internal Error 500)   or take much time.





through htaccess can only protect your WordPress but you can not stop hackers to slow down your site/server.

I have come up with one solution when I had faced such kind of issue that I will share it here.
with cloud fare and "Wordfence Security" plugin this issue can be cover up with 80%.

Why need to use cloud fare instead of htaccess?
htaccess has to query and follow from .htaccess file when anyone visit a website. cloudflare can block by DNS level and save your server bandwidth and ram with this you have enough resource of bandwidth and ram to server proper requested response to an actual user.

Top Ten hackers are from these Countries non-english countries
  • Hungary  (English speakers, 20%)
  • Italy (English speakers, 34%)
  • Romania (English speakers, 31%)
  • Brazil (English speakers, 5%)
  • Taiwan (English speakers, -%)
  • Russia (English speakers, 5.48%)
  • Turkey (English speakers, 17%)
  • China (English speakers, 8%)

if you don't need traffic from above Countries, simply use clodfare firewall and add action as in captcha to avoid hacking attempts. 

Till in some cases, the hacker uses proxies or couple of VPN.
by "Wordfence Security" you can set a minimum number of attempt in some number of time mention in second.

Tips: Avoid crack and nulled themes and plugin
