5 tools for WordPress website Performance Testing

5 tools for WordPress website Performance Testing

There are many articles written by different bloggers on wordpress website optimisation and ways to improve load time of your website/ perfomance.  I have been managing approx 200 wordpress based business website & blogs for Webx99.com ,  few with huge traffic consuming huge bandwidth. Today I would be listing few tools that I have been using and recommending other developers to use them before they put website to live from development environment.

I won’t be putting detailed features comparison between these tools and web applications but a basic overview and what a particular tool does’s and how it can help you in testing perfomance of your wordpress website. And one more thing however i am writing this article focusing wordpress based website perfomance testing but it can be as helpful for any website no matter built just with html css or using any cms.

Tools to Test WordPress Performance:

  1. GTMetrix can be used as a benchmarking tool it has a very well crafted interface that allows you to not only see the load time but to get details on Google Pagespeed score and Yahoo’s YSlow scores also.  It also puts suggestions to consider improving the performance and possible fixes.
  2. KeyCDN Speed Test is a simple tool that will display asset loading and total time it took for the website to finish loading. It can be used to test the CDN speed as many of wordpress themes and other templates use CDN hosted assets like bootstrap css, jquery, font-awesome and other libraries.
  3. Pingdom Tools: One of very popular tool to test page load time, it also displays detailed analysis of loaded assets by type like images, scripts, html etc. It’s my favorite tool.
Bihar Board 12th 2015 results likely to be published expecting irregularities

Bihar Board 12th 2015 results likely to be published expecting irregularities

Bihar board results are likely to be published today after extension of date from last known date , Looks like there is even confusion among the national media about the url/ website were the results are likely to be published. Bihar board seems to not have published any info on any of the websites those are refereed by different different media houses.

According to the DNA website they have listed two url one is http://www.biharboard.bih.nic.in/ where no one can find any trace are results to be published here the last notification/ link posted on the site days back more than 4 years.  Another url circulated by DNA [www.biharboard.net] which is already expired one with no website, looks like the education department have either forgot to provide info where the results will be published or don’t think it’s important may be.

In this kind of crisis among students, JAGRAN, INDIA Results and many more are playing with the game to gather student’s details may be to sell to admission consultants.

The only information available to mass of the websites and media is that “Bihar Board 12th results 2015/ Bihar Board Intermediate result 2015 are to be announced on 20th may by 3:00 PM IST”.

Assuming that the results might be published at the site were it was published last year in 2014 I think results should be published at http://www.biharboardresults.net/ again there is no any link or update about the result till yet today 10 am on the day of result to be published.

I would try to update this page with the confirmed link as we know for viewing the results of Bihar Board Intermediate results 2015.

UPDATE: 20 MAY 2015 12.15 PM 

The website were results will be published is http://biharboard.ac.in/ you can also check your inter / matric result of bihar board from Direct link of India Results at

Oops Bihar board result website failed again

Oops Bihar board result website failed again

Bihar education aka Bihar board examination results for 10 or matriculation were likely to be launched or uploaded today on website. Student’s waiting for their already delayed results are now feeling panic of finding there result. Our bihar examination board has done it again as of their process of providing contract for hosting result has already been questioned as of their capacity required for servers and the team to manage the traffic had failed all the time.

Bihar board result website
Bihar board result website

In very recent days when as per notification bihar board intermediate results were about to be published on the internet at their officially announced website http://www.biharboard.net/ crashed even before any body could have found there result on the website. Now lets do some analysis of the said website which crashed in fact it was suspended by the hosting provider.

Government release huge amount of money to host the result on website like above one, but you all will be amazed that the board itself or the agency who was about to host the result were using the very cheap shared hosting when there requirement was to look for VPS on cloud platform. You will put your nails between the teeth when amazing facts appeared when I investigated the story  about website http://www.biharboard.net/ the website hosting was bought from one of worst web hosting company in India as per my experience a company Called MANAS HOSTING. And perhaps you will cut your finger when you will know the server shared between different users and website was having 5000+ domains / website hosted on the same server at the time we investigated. At the moment this domain/web hosting account is been suspended due to heavy resource uses by company manas hosting.

After the discouraging news about the website intermediate result were re-published at new website http://www.biharboardresults.net/ the new website by the department or board. Students kept wondering for several days wasting their time and effort finding the website which was already under capacity again. Some how after long wait students were able to find the results.

The shame comes again now today as on 5th of the june matriculation exams were about to be launched on http://www.biharboardresults.net/  this website it has crashed again there technician now seems to switch hosting as they have changed the name servers for the domain few minutes ago. Students will now also have to wait for there 10th board results.

Shame on the department they should do tendering to find good companies out there to manage or handle big data and traffic. I have been managing more than 5 VPS servers to manage the load of our customers 500+ websites some with huge traffic as of Webx99.com is brand founded by me known for it’s promising web solutions including Cloud VPS cloud hosting . We are quite confident that government should short out these issues and

 

Education System in Bihar and it’s view about Information Technology

Education System in Bihar and it’s view about Information Technology

As a technology blogger among very few from bihar perhaps 😉 , I some how every day come to news related to the worst view on Information Technology by Bihar Educational institutions including government of Bihar. A recent story came to my knowledge when I got informed by my company staff that website of B.N. Mandal UNIVERSITY  is about to shutdown because authority didn’t respond to or react to the renewal reminder for their website www.bnmu.in .

BNMU Website NO MOREMy company staff told me that all the letters and e mailers already sent to university concern person/department with request to renew their website but no required attention provided by the university authority side.

There has been many stories in local news and online magazine about the down website incident . After the website of the university in no more exists these days students are unable to get any information related to exams, results and other academic details.

A local news portal of Madhepura district also published the stories:

मंडल यूनिवर्सिटी का वेबसाईट फिर हुआ खल्लास !

क्या मंडल विश्वविद्यालय का वेबसाईट आज हो जायेगा गायब ?

This is another shame on the dignity of the BNM University, as our company is getting too many calls regarding the status of website we have already mentioned everything that University had ignored all the CONSOLIDATED RENEWAL reminder and even they didn’t responded with any satisfactory conversation on renewing the site. Site can be renewed within 7 days by paying additional charges after that domain will go in redemption period when can be renewed with a heavy penalty.   God save our education system  in bihar wish a good luck for students doing road shows for results what a shame.

Best Blogging services Review

Hi friends I am really sorry that I was out for a month and unable to update the blog, but I am very happy for the huge good responses I am getting daily about this blog. As in previous post I had discussed why Indians (every one) should blog. If you read that article and got the secret and known the benefits of blogging and wondering to start a blog right now or if you had just started a blog very recently than this post is for you.

I will not only tell you the most popular and best free blog hosting services but also review them in brief. Before I start listing them I would like to clear some points on which I will rate these blogging services. Following are the terms and their short description:

  • Scalability: It means if your blog becomes much popular than you must need good speed and server side power for your blog to run smoothly.
  • Migration:  If you need to move your free blog to self hosted powerful blogging services like (WordPress) than your free started blogging service may be migrated easily without loosing any post.
  • Locality: Indians must see one thing before choosing their blog service, the locality (Language support).
  • User friendly: Blog service must be easier to use and customize it’s design.

Some other points that should be kept in mind is popularity, no forced ad and custom domain (yourdomain.com) options.

Now here is the popular hosted blogging services Indian’s should choose:

  1. Blogger.com : Best for hindi blogs, reliablity and is popular in india and abrod. Custom domain option easy to Use.
  2. WordPress.com: Free hosted blog service of worlds most popular self hosted blogging platform WordPress. Hindi support, many themes, easy to use, scalable, migration enabled.
  3. WordPress.org: Same features as at WordPress.com but self hosted ideal for big blogs like our. TechMitra is hosted by us and uses wordpress.
  4. TypePad: Premium and Free hosted blog service, this is free but scalable if needed.
  5. Blog.co.in: Indian Blogging Service multilingual, write in hindi and other language.

You are recommended by me to use only Blogger.com or WordPress.com never use non popular blogging services they can cheat you after your blog gets popular. One more thing Blogger.com only provides 1gb of storage for your blogger account and Picassa account. But WordPress.com is good in this. To add your blog in the list please comment below.
