Filed under: Web Development — Tags: , — The Insight @ 1:12 pm

Dreamhost has launched a new service called Dreamhost Apps where you get free hosting for Google Apps, WordPress, Drupal,Zen Photo, phpBB and Media Wiki. More Apps will be included in near future.

There are just three step to complete this.

1. Select the App

2.Register the domain

You can either use your own web domain or block a sub-domain  that will become the main address of your site. Dreamhost will manage all the databases and DNS entries – you’ll get an email as soon as the services are setup and ready for use.
Dreamhost Apps is absolutely free and you don’t need a PayPal account or credit card to sign-up so there’s no risk of getting charged later. Simply sign-up using an invite code, pick the services that you want to install and done.

Deamhost Apps is free only during the beta period but if you sign-up now, it will remain free for you forever. Also note that Dreamhost Apps doesn’t offer FTP or shell access so you will not be able to install custom PHP scripts or MySQL databases.

How to add Favicon in your website

Filed under: Web Development — Tags: , — The Insight @ 7:35 am

Favicon has become an essential parts of any website. Without Favicon a website looks incomplete or no upto the standard. When you type the URL of a website in the browser and you observe there is Favicon missing it makes you feel that something is missing in the website.

Favicon are logo of any website and you can easily understand if how things will looks if a brand/company is without its logo.

Suppose you type http://google.com . The moment you finishes typing URL of the website there is a tiny pic in the URL  with the URL. That is the favicon of the website.You can see it in all major websites.

We can say ” favicon is a icon file with 16×16 name favicon.ico under parent directory of the web.”

How to add Favicon in your website?

1.Create a favicon for your website.You can check this link to see how to create a favicon with Photoshop.

Creating Favicon with GIMP, an alternative software of Photoshop, is much more easy.Make sure your image does not have any  color background (delete the layer with white background by default). Save it as favicon.ico

2. Upload your favicon to the root of your website.

3. Add this code  into your <head> tag:

<link href='/favicon.ico' rel='icon'/>
<link href='/favicon.ico' rel='shortcut icon'/>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

In href you have to give the path of your favicon icon. You can use
other name for your favicon instead of favicon.ico e.g. absfavicon.gif
.

There are some plugins also available for this task in WordPress e.g.
Favicon Manager but
i dont see any intelligence using a plugin for such a minuscule 
task because installing a plugins means affecting the speed of 
your website.
