Alternate attributes, commonly called “Alt” tags, are used to provide information about web images. These tags aren’t required for the image to render properly but they are a good idea because they can be a key part of optimizing images for the web. Alt tags are simple text snippets added to image src placements in an HTML document.
When servers work as expected, no one notices that they’re there. The minute a server stops fulfilling its duty, it can seem like the sky is falling. Many businesses – especially small businesses – live and die by the performance of their servers. That’s why choosing the right server and the appropriate configuration is so important.
Servers should be reliable, obviously. Business owners should also expect their servers to be secure, efficient and scalable. Secure servers protect company data and can regulate many business functions. Efficient server utilization helps keep costs where they should be. Scalable servers enable businesses to grow into themselves and can also help with daily operation. They’re there to help the business, not disrupt it.
The term domain name has been around since the beginning of the internet.
A domain name is the unique identifier given to a website or a server. The domain name points to the exact location that a website’s files are located. Without domain names, we would be typing addresses like “188.8.131.52” rather than “www.HostandStore.com” or “Google.com” every time we needed to navigate to a particular website.

Unfortunately, this was caused by the writer failing to fully understand copyright laws on the web. As you can see, this turned into a costly mistake.
Images are all over the web. They can be easy to take for granted, but without images the internet would be no different from an Encyclopedia. Images can be an amazing tool for any website – as long as they’re properly optimized and implemented. With this in mind, let’s walk through 5 of the most important aspects of optimizing your images for the web.
Once upon a time, one of the biggest design challenges that developers encountered while building a website was optimizing content for different desktop-based browsers. With the advent of today’s mobile technology, the focus of website design has shifted dramatically to accommodate the myriad of different smartphones and tablets on the market. Millions of people access the web via their mobile devices daily, and that number is growing; studies indicate that mobile browsing is poised to become even more prevalent than desktop-based web viewing in the next couple of years. If your website is more than three years old, or if you have yet to redesign it to make it mobile-friendly, you are probably missing out on a massive and ever-growing segment of your potential viewing audience.
