Latest Tips For Domain Name Registration



It seems like every person on the planet is starting their own website these days, Since it is very cheap and simple to operate a website, it is not surprising that so many people are doing it in an effort to make money, write blogs or to set up a message board regarding something they are passionate about. Whatever the case may be, if you want your site to stand out from all the other competition in your particular niche, the first thing you will need to do is devote some time to coming up with a good name for your site. Of course, this is much easier said than done.

Ideally, you want the name of your site to be very simple. It should be short, easy to spell and easy to remember. It should not closely resemble the name of any other site. You do not want people confusing a different site for yours. After you think of a good domain name, you will need to register it. Here are some tips for domain name registration.




Extension

Begin by doing business with the best domain name registrar you can find. There are many of them out there, so do some research and see which one people are giving the best reviews to. The most popular extensions are .org, .net and .com.

If at all possible, you should try to get a .com extension. However, there is a chance the domain name you want has already been selected with the .com extension. If this is the case, you can either think of a new domain name or try to register the original domain with the .org or .net extension. If a business is located outside of the United States, many businesses opt to have an extension that is associated with the country where the business is located. For example, Canada's extension is .ca and .au is for Australia.

Protect your Name

When most people think about protecting their business name, they think of getting it trademarked. While this is a good idea in theory, the reality is that getting a website domain trademarked will cost more money than the average person will be able to afford. For the most part, only the large companies spend the money that it takes to trademark their domain name. A much cheaper alternative would be to buy your domain name in every extension available.

How To Embed & Watch YouTube Videos Directly in Simple Machine Forums Like Nairaland

Yes, I am a Member of the Most Active Web Forum in my Country, Nairaland.com. I've had some history with them and with even the Founder of the great website whom I have had opportunity to speak with over a long time back. I didn't know the meaning of the word BLOG, BLOGGING, or BLOGGER back then, that's by the way.
Some days back I needed to Embed a Video in the Forum for everyone to see but found no Option to do that in their Post Editor, being familiar with BBCodes, I applied what I knew and it worked.
So I decided to Share with us How To Get the URL of Videos and Embed the YouTube videos in any SMF Forums or Other CMS/VBulletin websites that supports BBCodes, this should be useful for every member or Moderator of such Forum website, let's go.


1. Get the Link of the YouTube video you want to post in the Forum.
You can get the link in 2 ways:
a. By directly visiting the video's page on YouTube, in URL bar, the link looks like this >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k0YjL5IehM

OR
 
b. Copying from the Embed code, it looks like this >>
 <iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/2k0YjL5IehM?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You See the Video Link in Red inside right? The one painted in red is Unique & most important.
2. Go to the Forum editor where you want to post or Embed the video
Follow the Steps For Example
i.) Paste the Video link
Replace /watch?v=    with   /v/ like this
So your new video link looks like this >>  https://www.youtube.com/v/2k0YjL5IehM

3.  Apply the following BBCodes along with the video Link without any spaces.

[flash=600,300]VIDEO LINK[/flash]

600- Width of the video
300 - length/height of the video

Now Post it along with any other thing, the Video will show directly and can be watched.

This is really a simple tutorial because it takes only a line of BBCode and Hyperlink, and save moderators the Stress of cross-checking the post or tweaking before everybody can watch the video directly inside the Forum, be it Simple Machine forums, (SMF) or any other CMS.

My Success Story - Earning With Konga Affiliate Program

Affiliate Programs are one of the major sources of Online cash for some publishers, it's a broad discussion today. In the past before Konga Associate or Affiliate Program came on board, when I was still trying to understand the meaning of Affiliate Programs, I used Google Affiliate Network known as G.A.N... I saw few others putting it on their blogs, I was a Learner, so I followed the crowd, (although the Product has been Shut down now) the Result was Null, I got nothing from it, I dumped it and moved over to CJ Affiliate Program, still there was No Luck, so I quit and forgot every that had to do with Affiliate Programs or How much money people make with it.

RECOMMENDED: #Blogging: The Best Option to Make Money Online

I took other things serious, Like Creating More Content and Readership on my Blog. I totally put Affiliate Topics off my mind until late last year 2014, when E-commerce/Online shopping had grown rapidly in my locality, I am speaking of Konga.com, one of the Biggest Online Store in Nigeria now.

How I Found & Signed up with Konga Affiliate/Associate Program


Konga's website which I noticed more often. They were always on my Facebook Newsfeed advertising various products, so when I heard they ran Affiliate Program which few Bloggers in my community were already earning from, I had to dust my eyes and give another Shot to what seemed to be initially abortive with the Other Affiliate Programs I had tried 2years ago, I was a bit sure this time because of my Traffic had improved and was targeted at Nigerians who possibly Shop Online.

I had also gathered better knowledge so I decided giving my Best Shot with the Konga Affiliate Program, So I hopped in again around August 2014. I applied and I got accepted into the Konga Affiliate Program withing 24hours.

I started Promoting products in late November when The remarkable BlackFriday Shopping day was near, fortunately it was right time for me to test things out, so I set out, Wrote a Review about the KONGA'S FALL YAKATA BLACKFRIDAY SALES.
Every Affiliate member also got mailed to Promote their BlackFriday Deals which I followed up, see let me tell you, the Cool thing about Konga Affiliate Program is you'll Get Simple Guides in your Mailbox on What to Promote & What to Do that will Help you Earn more Commissions, this is not a secret or shortcut but Konga makes this so easy for their Affiliates. So, days Later just after BlackFriday Sales, I started getting Commission Alerts in my mailbox for every Sales I made.

My Commissions Reaches Threshold and Gets Paid!!! 

Just before the end of 2014, when Konga Announced Infinix Hot X507, I made a Quick review of the Smartphone, I also did another Hands-On Review of the same Infinix Hot X507, we all loved the review of that Cool phone. So, Once again, the results were Wonderful. It didn't take Long for my Commissions to reach Threshold. My earnings got Paid to me via Bank Wire Transfer, that's the Payment Option I chose. Below is a screenshot of my Commissions Paid straight into my account.

How I Received $25 Bonus with My MasterCard from Payoneer For Free!

Hi there, today I'll be showing us another tip on how to receive your Payoneer MasterCard in Nigeria and make some cool Cash online with the same PAYONEER account but before that I'll like to briefly tell us somethings about this service called Payoneer because they go beyond helping you making money, they also offer wonderful Payment Services.
Payoneer is the Best PayPal alternative, it's used to Send and Receive mass payments with/from or for Individuals, Small and Big Companies. Payoneer Debit MasterCard service is awesome.
Many hear of Payoneer, but they are yet to know what Payoneer can do for them, well this post is for you too...

Here's What Payoneer Can Do For You:

  • Help you Send and Receive Mass Payments whether to or from Small or Big Companies
  • With your Payoneer Account and MasterCard, you can Use it to Link and Verify your PayPal Account.
  • Payoneer creates a U.S Local bank account for you, which means You can use your Payoneer to withdraw your PayPal funds or any Cash deposited into your Bank Account.
  • You Can use your Payoneer to Receive and Withdraw your Amazon Earnings from any part of the World.
MUST READ: Do You Know You? can Get a Paper Check from PayPal

Below is a picture of my Payoneer Card received few weeks ago, I shared it on Instagram >>  see Link to the photo here


Now, Here's How I Received my Payoneer MasterCard:

Just Like me you too can get $25 as Bonus along with your Payoneer MasterCard, you can receive your Payoneer card in Nigeria like me, and it's Absolutely easily & Free.

To Get Your Payoneer Account with Card and Claim your Bonus, Simply Follow the Steps Below
1. Sign Up for Payoneer Account Here, click on SIGN UP

2. Make sure you Input your Real Name, Home Address and your POSTAL code number of your Address, they'll be needing it to easily locate you.

3. Asking Your IDENTITY in Payoneer, You can take a Picture of any of your Government issued I.D cards, like your Voters Card, Driver's License or National I.D (Front and Back), they'll provide you option to either Send the documents to their email or Upload them.
In my case, I used my Voter's Card, I Chose to send it to them via Email so they can See and confirm the front and back where the Serial Number of the I.D is written, this proves to them that you're Serious and Genuine.

4. Serial number of I.D -  You can input those numbers written in your I.D cards, e.g below the back of your Voter's card or National I.D, that's all I did.
It took 20 Days (almost a month) for it to be processed and shipped to my address in Lagos, Nigeria.

Note: Reason for the delay was due to my Location was quite far from Payoneer's Home Office, people living closer to Payoneer's operating office should receive theirs faster.

ACTIVATING YOUR PAYONEER CARD FOR USE

Once you get the MasterCard, you'll get an Email asking you to ACTIVATE. Go to your Account and use the Payoneer MasterCard to Activate it with the CCV code at back of the Card, more importantly, you activate the card also by changing the password (ATM Pin) of the card.
Now load or Receive 100$ into your Payoneer Account and you will get 25$ as bonus  instantly.


Now, you can Double your Bonus by Referring or Inviting friends to use the Payoneer Service. You see, why I actually love this part is that; it's a WIN-WIN program, everybody gets the bonus, they too will receive the bonus with you, the more you refer, the more your Bonus will Double and Triple from $25 to 50, to $100 then you can withdraw your Bonus from any ATM Machine which supports MasterCard near you.
