[Idea] The one dollar website

[Idea] The one dollar website

– theonedollarwebsite.com –   In a previous post, I talked about a great tool to analyze the best domain prices with domcomp. However, what are the limits of the costs reduction in technology? To build a website, we need a domain, a name on Internet, and a folder where we can share the archives of the website (hosting). Luckily even the domain providers that sell 1 dollar domains for a year, usually provide a few megabytes hosting. This is not a lot, but with the right choices you can get great results like this: A website for an App. A homepage for your business. A presentation website where you can share your CV: 1 and 2. This kind of website are called Bootstrap websites and here you can search a few more examples. The only thing you need to do is download the chosen template, open the main file (index.html) with a text editor and adapt the texts. Finally, replace the photos in the respective folder, and upload your website version on the hosting folder. Is this the best solution? No, you would not be working with a nice interface, and a WordPress website with a beautiful template is better for a basic use. Nevertheless, for 1 dollar you would achieve a great ¨online poster¨. In addition, it will give you a better service than a Wix website or similar. PRO types: In an extreme scenario where you want to add lots of big pictures on your hosting space, or in case the final website does not load fast enough, you can make this trick. Upload big secondary files...

The most powerful WordPress theme

The most powerful WordPress theme

Several times I found an amazing template which sadly was not ready for WordPress, or I had the best design, but just in my head. ¿My options? Forget about it, to learn to program, or take advantage of the technology to build an impressive website. Our magical solution? A WordPress theme called Divi. In their website, you will find a great preview of its flexibility. Also, a great documentation that will help you to build almost any website without coding. Is anyone still skeptical? Then checks a couple of my own examples, so you can see you how powerful it is: First scenario: Adapting a free template for WordPress.

I had a bootstrap template, like the ones I talk you before, but It needed to be transformed it into a WordPress page in order to improve webpage SEO: Original My adaptation As you can see, the imitation is not perfect, but for 15 minutes of work without programming, the results are unbeatable.

How to publish a Contruct 2 Html5 game into Android using Monaca

How to publish a Contruct 2 Html5 game into Android using Monaca

A couple months ago I bought a contruct 2 game template to make a marketing proposal. Even with my little experience, I can tell that construct 2 is a great platform for developers. However, publishing the games can be hard and expensive for a casual developer like me. This tutorial will try to explain how to export and test the game in a more painless way than the ones proposed on the official website of the project. 1. First we need to get the html5 version of the game Please be aware that we don’t want the version with a frame around. Frames help to adapt the game resolution in desktop browsers. However, that is not our final platform. Open your contruct 2, select export as ¨Html5 website¨ and later do not do not select to add a frame to the game, or it will look awful insite the phone. If you bought a template like I did, and already include it, you can just enter in the ¨html5¨ folder and then on folder ¨Game¨. That is the game without a frame. 2. Upload and configure it: Now that you have the html5 game, we need to upload the game to Monaca and configure it. 2.1 Upload the project To avoid problems I advise you to use Chrome. First, we register in monoca.io and we create a project using the ¨minimum template¨ that Monaca provides. This is important because our project need the file ¨config.xml¨ that the project provides. We need to upload the game files into the folder ¨www¨. You can delete the rest of the files in...
