Right now it’s the “Digital Era” isn’t it? Even if you’ve never been into codes, the one “digital desire” you just have is, to have your own website, don’t you? So well, that’s exactly what I’m explaining in this piece, How to create a Website.
By the end of this piece you’ll get a neat idea if you’ve had any doubts regarding how to make a website, or how to create your own funnels or anything distantly related.
What is a Website?
I’m sure you might have read this exact same subheading enough times, but nope this one isn’t going to be like them.
The kind of things I’m talking about in this piece, in order to help you make your own website, aren’t “too” advanced, they’re basic, but they’ll get you started.
Okay so let’s get down to the point. What is a Website?
A Website, is a “page” on the internet. It’s a page where you share your stuff, Sell something or just write. It’s a page that is accessible all across the globe, and it’s the page that has the potential to make you money, lot’s of money.
Is there only One Kind of Website?
Definitely not, there are over 50 different kind of websites. Starting from general “blogs”, to super complicated, custom coded Social networks and E-commerce stores.
But those are not what we will be making today.
In this piece today on how to build a website, I’ll be sharing with you how to make your own website, that’s simple, doesn’t cost your a fortune, and still makes you money. (Or maybe not, that’s your choice.)
What do You Need to Make a Website:
Lies you’ve been told about making your own website:-
I’m 19, and I don’t know shit for codes, still I’ve been making websites for a living, and I’ve been pretty successful at it too. So I speak from experience.
Or, if you’ve been told you need a fortune and a bank balance that looks like a cell number to make your own website, that’s a lie too!
I’ll list out the “simpler” things you’d be needing in order to create your own website:-
- A Domain.
- A server.
- A CMS (I’ll be explaining WordPress, nope not just blogs, you can even make full fledged E-commerce sites with it!)
If you don’t want to spend any money on your first website, here is how to start a blog for free.
How to Create a Website:-
The Domain Name:-
So okay, we start with the domain name. A domain name the first step towards creating your own website. It’s the “address” of your website.
For eg. in our case, we have experthoot.caddressthe adress. And that’s what you typed to get here, right?
Guess what! Domain names are cheap! Yeah they are.
Some other platforms you can get domain names from:-
Registering a domain name takes minutes. so well just head over to any of the above options, and choose your domain name. Here is guide to buy a domain. This explains how to buy a Domain before starting a website.
Tips While Buying a Domain Name:-
- Keep it Short.
- Keep it simple.
- Don’t use high diction.
- Don’t use numbers and dashesh.
- Keep it “brandable”.
- Keep it unique.
The servers are where your files are stored. You’ll be uploading images, text, and probably even videos to the websites, right?
And then there’s the core-code on which the site runs, so you need space for all of that right? Well you need “servers” for them.
Now, getting servers is just as easy as getting domain names, or maybe signing up a Facebook acount! Yeah, nothing complicated with them.
First things first, head over to a Good Server company and get yourself a descent one.
So once you’ve got the servers (which I insist you take from Bluehost, because all that there is to consider, starting from Speed, bandwidth and space, has been considered and evaluated before recommending that to you!)
You only need to link your nameservers to your domain, that you can do by:-
- Going to your Domain Control Panel.
- Then, click on the little arrow that’s there alongside your domain name, and select Manage DNS from it!
- Now scroll down a bit to find the “nameservers’ section. Well it’s easy just click on Change, and edit the nameservers with the nameservers you get with your servers!
Installing the CMS:-
CMS- Content Management System. And well there’s no other service that can surpass WordPress when it comes to building an easy, simple yet professional website.
So well, just login to your servers. And on the SearchBar, search for “Softaculous” (This is the hub which has all the “1-click install modules” for you).
Now just click on it, and you should see the WordPress icon right there at the top. (Considering it poweres world’s 1/4 websites!) So just hover over it, and click Install.
On the next page, just fill in the Details. The page is pretty simple, although I’d say you can leave the “directory” field blank if you want your site to be exactly at your URL, like www.yoururl.com instead of being at www.yoururl.com/directory. Anyway the choice is yours.
So once you’ve filled in the details, click on install! Done! Now you would get the login details and the Login URL mailed to you on the Email Id you entered while setting up WordPress. You should use an interactive and mobile optimised WordPress theme. If you don’t know much about WordPress themes, see this blog post telling you how to Choose the best WordPress theme.
More Than a “Blog”?
Not just a “WordPress blog”. Using the installer at Softaculous, you can lieterally create just about anything you wish for!
- Membership Sites.
- E-commerce Platforms.
- Social Networks
- Or anything else!
Just choose those modules, like “prestashop-for E-commerce” instead of WordPress and the rest of the procedure is almost the same!
So yup that was it folks on how to create a website. I tried to make the process as simple and elaborate to you as possible. But if still some doubts remain, you can always make use of the comment box.
Oh and if you seriously create a website using the above steps, I’d love to hear your experience and how it all goes!
How to use BitLocker to Encrypt your Files
Locker means a safe place where you can put your personal or important things hiding from others. We all have some things which we don’t want to share with others same as in the computer you have any important data that you want to hide from the outside world. For that, there are many software available over the web and as well as well-known by you so no need to describe it.
But if you want to lock your Hard Drive partitions without any software then? In that case, Microsoft has provided one wonderful tool known as “BitLocker” in Windows Vista, 7 and 8 for encrypting your entire Hard Drive partitions. Using BitLocker you can lock any volume on the computer even the one you boot from. But a question arises in your mind that How to use it, right? So, I will show you two different modes to use BitLocker on your computer. If you wanted to Defrag the Hard Drive, you should see that.
1. “How to use BitLocker on a normal/data volume”
2. “How to use BitLocker on Boot volume”
Let’s see the first mode:
1. How to use BitLocker on a normal/data volume?
A simple way to enable BitLocker – right click on any volume and select “Turn BitLocker on” to start the locking process. After clicking a window will pop-up (as shown in the figure below) asking to enter a password to use with the drive – you will also ask to say a copy of the recovery key somewhere at safe place and then it will begin encrypting your drive.
By this method you can lock all the drives on your computer except “C:/ drive” or “Boot partition”.
Now, the second mode:
2. How to use BitLocker on Boot volume
Yes, it is true that you can encrypt the main operating system drive, but this has some special requirements since the drive has to be unlocked before boot. First of all this requires that Windows has a seperate boot partition that isn’t encrypted; in case if you don’t have then create a separate boot partition. The second requirement is that your system include a TPM (Trusted Platform Module).
If you try to encrypt your boot volume without satisfying the above to requirement then it will give an error as shown in the figure below.
So, in that case you will need to configure your system to use BitLocker with a TPM. Here is how you can do that.
- Press [win + r] and type “gpedit.msc” in it and press enter to launch the Local Group Policy Editor
- Now, browse to – “Computer Configuration > Administrator Templates > Windows Components > BitLocker Frive Encryption > Operating System Drives
- In the right panel. double click the setting “Require additional authentication at startup” and select “Enabled”
- In that please check the below options that “Allow BitLocker without a compatible TPM…” is checked.
- Then, Click Ok – you are done.
Now you will able to start the BitLocker process on your system drive, and will have the option to either enter a password on startup or insert a USB drive to boot.
If you have any problem regarding “BitLocker” then put your comments below so that I can surely help you to get rid out of your problem. Hope this guide helped you to understand how to use BitLocker.

Quick Response codes, often abbreviated as QR codes are a kind of matrix Bar Code or two-dimensional Bar Codes (a machine-readable code represented in the form of patterns of parallel lines and numbers usually used to store information’s like price, index of an object to which it is attached ).
QR codes came to us all the way from the technological hub Japan where they were first designed for the automotive Industry.
A QR code uses four industry standard encoding modes to efficiently store information about the item to which it is attached and those are: Numeric, Alphanumeric, Byte/Binary and Kanji (漢字 logographic Chinese character).
A QR code consists of Square dots (black modules) systematically arranged in a square box with a white background and can be read by imaging devices like scanner or camera.
Fact: the QR code system was invented in 1994 by Denso wave (a subsidiary of Toyota) with the sole purpose of tracking vehicles during manufacture. QR codes can store more than 4,000 alphanumeric characters in a limited space.
What purpose are QR codes used for?
QR codes are quite popular in the industry because of its quick readability and larger storage capacity as compared to the usual Bar Codes.
#1: QR codes can be used to link directly to a URL
#2: QR codes can be used to store data like name, address, numeric values like price, phone numbers etc.
#1: One can add QR codes to his/her business cards that could store name, address, contact numbers, links to the social media presence.
#2: QR codes are quite often used in product packaging.
#3: QR codes can be used in print advertisements to boost reach and earnings.

How To Play PS3 Games On PS4
The Sony Playstation gaming console was launched in the year 1994 and has held gamers enthralled with games ranging from Super Mario Kart to Devil May Cry and BloodBourne.
However, with the ever-increasing complexity of the console from version to version, some games from previous generations are now unplayable. That is up until now. We decided to put together a guide on how to play PS3 Games on PS4 in tribute to the next generation of cloud-based gaming.
Sony PlayStation 4 is one of the premium gaming consoles rivaled only by Xbox One and Nintendo Wii. Being at the pinnacle of the gaming industry for more than two decades now, the PS continues its market dominance much to the delight of Sony PlayStation fans everywhere!
If you wanted to Play Xbox 360 on PC, here is How to Play Xbox 360 Games on PC?
How to Play PS3 Games on PS4
“Can u play PS3 games on PS4?” was the question asked by one of our readers. With the release of Sony Playstation 4 and PS4 not supporting the discs meant for the PS3, this question posed a possible pockmark on the PS4’s otherwise incredible gameplay and performance. So, can you play PS3 games on PS4?
The answer at the time was sadly – No. All the PS3 games stayed with the console for which they were meant. Any disc you bought for the PS3 stays with it, and you will have to get new game discs for PS4.
But, can the PS4 play PS3 games? The answer is yes. Although they both have extremely different internal architectures, PS4 does have the computing power to virtually emulate the PS3 architecture, which makes us think – Why would Sony do this to us?
Give us the computing power, but not the games we all love and adore. Can PS4 play PS3 games? If yes, how?
For those hoping to play PS3 games on PS4, Sony has released Playstation Now, a cloud-based gaming platform that allows you to play all your PS3 games on your PS4 by streaming it to your PS4.
For the gaming community, the PS Now comes as a boon that they had been long awaiting. This allows you to stream games from the cloud and play them in sync with your Sony Entertainment Account savegames. So, say hello to an all-new experience from all your old favorite games from last gen.
Playing the classic vintage games on a new console can be a thrilling experience. The Advanced Graphics rendering and the amazing world texture enhancements make it look more real than the originals did, making the games seem new to the eye. Gameplay remains the same since the control scheme is no different than any previous model of PS.
An interesting thing to note about the PS Now is that it must always be connected, which does provide for some insecurity to those without a stable internet connection. But since all things are based on the cloud for the PS Now, this is a sad thing.
The upside of this is that your savegames will never be corrupted and you can always continue gameplay from the point where you last logged off.
Ever played Fantasy Football? Here is How to Play Fantasy Football?
This somewhat combines the concepts of MMO gaming and traditional gaming with cloud synced savegames for some games like the Batman Arkham Series or Assassins Creed, where you either start where you last left off (out of mission) or in a nearby zone to the place where you can continue the free roam that sandbox games like these give you.
P.S. Now has been in development for some time (since 2014 in fact) and recently released in May of 2015 in North America. Over 400 games are accessible in the cloud for either a monthly subscription of $19.99 or a three-month subscription fee of $49.99.
Does PS4 play PS3 games as well as the original console? The answer is ‘No’ again – Not all games can be emulated and even when they can, it requires a minimum of 5mbps uninterrupted internet speed to preload the game from the cloud. Right now, only 400 of the thousands of games available for the PS3 are available for the PS4, but thankfully almost all our favorite top-sellers are included.
Still, it is a blessing for those praying to the gamer gods for better clearer graphics and amazing gameplay for the games that do run.
Among these are the Assassins Creed Games up till ACIII, Batman Arkham Series (not including Arkham Knight), BlazBlue, Darkstalkers, God of War, Hitman HD remakes, Infamous, Resident Evil, Injustice: Gods among us, King of Fighters ’93 and XIII and several Lego video games including Batman and Harry Potter.
All these are highly recommended if you haven’t played them on the PS3 as well. But any gamer worth his joystick would have played most of these, if not all of them.
PS Now has a 7-day free trial as well, so you can test out how your internet connection responds to the bandwidth load from the cloud games.
Are you a Pokemon fan? You are going to love the Pokemon game on the iPhone. Here is How To Get Pokemon on iPhone
If it does work out, you can then choose to rent games for the standard 4 hours, 1 day, 7 days, 30days and 90 days. Or you can pay the subscription. Either way, it’s awesome, and if you have a PS4 and a decent internet connection – go head and sign up now to get access to all the goodies that Sony PlayStation Now has.
Warning: Side effects may include being unable to get up from your seat, sore thumbs, clawed hands, unblinking eyes and angry moms. If you have suffered from these before (especially the last one), consider keeping maximum snacks and caffeinated fizzy drinks to fight the adverse effects (and do it when she’s away)
We hope this answers the question – how to play PS3 games on PS4 and the question can I play PS3 games on PS4. The PS4 might not be meant for this exclusively, but it sure does meet the requirements of those nostalgic gamers out there with a thirst for adventure, action and adrenalin that only the classics can provide.
How to Connect Your TV to Your Computer
One way to show digital pictures and video to friends and family is for all to circle around the home computer screen. Alternatively, you can connect your tv to your computer and send the images to the TV. Technology also exists to network a TV and a computer in the other direction, so that you can watch television programs on your laptop or PC.
Showcasing digital images on the television
With a digital camera or video recorder, user can create multimedia image files stored on their PCs. Showing these images to others can be inconvenient, however, especially if your computer screen is small and located in a private room of the house. Displaying them on television usually allows you to show them at a larger size and in a more comfortable location.
You can connect a computer to a TV either wirelessly or with cables. The method you choose depends on the types of connections your TV supports as well as your budget for purchasing additional hardware.

Viewing television on the PC
You may also be interested in watching television programs on a computer. This is also possible with the right wired or wireless equipment installed. Some TV broadcasts are accessible directly via the Internet and no connection to television is required. Those who own Digital Video Recorders (DVR) may also prefer to connect their computer to the DVR rather than the television directly.
Connecting Computers to TVs through Wires
Televisions do not normally support Ethernet cable connections. Instead, you will typically connect your laptop or desktop PC to a TV using one of the following types of audio-visual (AV) cables:
· DVI or HDMI-to-DVI
· Any of the above – to-SCART (in Europe)
A scan converter converts the computer’s video signal into standard TV formats. You may need to set up a scan converter to connect your computer and TV if, between them, the two do not support any compatible combination of AV cable technologies listed above. Latest televisions, however, generally support multiple types of digital inputs and finding the right cable should not be too difficult.
•Connecting Computers to TVs Wirelessly
In place of using cables, you can also use Wi-Fi to connect computers and TVs wirelessly. Since televisions do not ordinarily support Wi-Fi, you will need to install a separate unit between the computer and TV. One common solution is called a Wireless PC to TV system or [i[Digital Media Receiver. These products connect via AV cable to the TV and supply Wi-Fi connections to any computer in the home.

Another wireless PC to TV connectivity option is based on Windows Media Center Edition (MCE). If you purchase a Windows XP or Windows Vista PC with the MCE application included, this system contains built-in wireless connectivity support for streaming images to your television. A few of these systems also support TV tuner cards that allow your computer to receive incoming television signals. Finally, you can extend the capability of a Media Center PC across an entire wireless home network by installing a Media Center Extender product like the Linksys DMA2100.
Happy computing!! and now you are able to connect your tv to your computer
