So you’re getting ready to build your first website, and you aren’t sure exactly where to start. Then suddenly, you see an advertisement for Wix, Weebly, GoDaddy, (etc.) that shows you how “simple” setting up a website is with their site builder. That sounds perfect! You sign up and create your site as easily as the advertisement made it seem. Now let’s skip six months into the future, and your business is booming. You find that you need to do some custom coding on your website to make it look a little more aesthetically pleasing, only you can’t do that. Instead, you decide to just settle and install some plugins/extensions that will do what you need them to, only you can’t do that. As a last resort, you decide to migrate your website to a different hosting provider, where you can use Joomla! or WordPress instead (since these are more customizable), only you can’t do that either. These site builders are good for just spinning up website’s, but in most situations, they are not what the client needs. I am going to tell you a few of the many reasons why these quick site builders are never the best option.

JCH Optimize is a plugin that’s available for Joomla!, WordPress, Magento, and Drupal and is used to optimize your site. What does optimization mean in this context? Well, to make a long story short, it automates certain actions like combining CSS and JavaScript files to get your site working faster. I use it on a Joomla! website I created and maintain, https://sabaton.pl The website uses many graphics, extensions, and custom CSS/JavaScript, so optimization is key here. Here’s a scan from Pingdom to show you its speed without JCH Optimize and caching:

Why do we need to use passwords?

According to the Wikipedia: “A password is a word or string of characters used for user authentication to prove identity or access approval to gain access to a resource which is to be kept secret from those not allowed access.”. Since we need to keep some things to ourselves, it is a good practice to secure them properly. In this blog I will try to explain to you why it is important to use unique, strong passwords and how to easily manage them.
Oh and I will try to explain from the site’s security perspective, but the rules are similar when it comes to securing all your accounts.
