Push Email for IMAP Supported On All Our Servers / articles rapid purple news  / imap mail 300x225Email is still an irreplaceable communication channel when it comes to business relations. So, in today’s fast-paced everyday life where every second counts, if you fail to receive an important email on time, you could run the chance of missing vital opportunities for you and your business.

Technically speaking, a constant connection between the mail server and the mail clients is needed, so no en-route delay in email delivery is permitted.

Here is where the ‘Push Email’ functionality for the IMAP protocol (IMAP stands for the outgoing mail server) kicks in. Chances are you’re already utilizing this awesome function and didn’t even know it.

What is IMAP IDLE?

IMAP IDLE is a simple, yet very effective protocol for keeping you notified for incoming email messages the moment they are sent to you.

Normally, if IMAP IDLE is not enabled on the server, an email client will have to constantly connect to the server to check for new messages. This connection will be refreshed by the email client at regular intervals, leading to consumption of considerable amounts of Internet traffic.

While this would not be an issue for a desktop user, a mobile user will see the difference in his monthly mobile data usage bill.

With IMAP IDLE enabled for the IMAP protocol, the mail client on your device will keep a persistent connection with the server and considerably less traffic (several bytes a day) will be consumed in the process.

How does ‘Push Email’ for IMAP work?

With a hot connection maintained between the sending mail server and the mail client on your device, you will be notified of new inbound messages in an instant. There will be absolutely no delay whatsoever.

Thus, you will never miss an email from an important business partner. Moreover, as a mobile user, you will be able to reduce data usage.

IMAP IDLE enabled on all our servers

The ‘Push Email’ functionality is supported by almost all Operating Systems and email clients.

It is enabled by default on all our web hosting servers, so you do not need to do anything on your end to set email pushing in action.

Google Alerts always seemed to have a rather primitive design to it – and that may very well have been the cause behind it never really gaining the popularity that it should have. Google has taken note of this and this past weekend have released a brand new design for the Google Alerts site. The core functionality of what and where you subscribe to things has not changed however the user interface has underwent a rather drastic change.

Google’s Latest Additions to Webmaster Tools

Over the course of the last week, July 13th – July 19th Google has announced some awesome new features they have introduced to Google’s Webmaster Tools. The first is the introduction of a new reporting feature designed to help marketers troubleshoot rel-alternate-hreflang annotations (an attribute that communicates with Google if there are requirements for alternate languages on a web page).

If you utilize hreflang, Google will be able to display the correct language right in the search results. In order to ensure that the proper content is displayed you will need to add the proper tags into the code for each page. Often times webmasters may put the proper tags on some pages and yet forget to include them on other pages. This creates a problem known as “missing return links”. Google simply explains this by saying “If page A links to page B, page B must link back to page A, otherwise the annotations may not be interpreted correctly.

 

The new reporting features are designed to detect when these pages aren’t linked properly:

Another issue that some users were experiencing was “incorrect hreflang values”. In order for a hreflang attribute to function properly it must be in one of the following formats:

Fortunately the new reporting will also identify improper language codes so that they can be fixed.

Moving along Google has also announced that they’ve updated the Robots.txt tester tool within Google Webmaster Tools adding three brand new features:

  • The Robots.txt tester tool now highlights which line in your robots.txt file is blocking a specific page.
  • You can utilize the new Robots.txt tool to test changes to your robots.txt file and test it before you make the file live.
  • Google will now show you older archived versions of your robots.txt file to see past issues.

Rapid Purple Hosting Clients Can Now Utilize Telepoint Data Center / rapid purple news  / dc telepoint inside 02 300x225

I am pretty excited to announce the addition of another data center option to the list of facilities you can choose between when hosting with Rapid Purple. As of today you can request your sites to be located in one of the most popular data center locations in Eastern Europe – the Telepoint data center located in the heart of Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Telepoint data center is a carrier-neutral Tier 3+ facility, which is situated at a crossroad of many local and international telecom networks.

The great connectivity conditions make the facility a great choice for websites located within the region of Eastern Europe, including countries like Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Ukraine, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, etc.

The facility offers 24/7 onsite customer support and system monitoring. Engineers are on duty 24/7 to assist with any issues and problems and to ensure everything is running smoothly. To ensure complete protection of the stored sensitive information, Telepoint applies a number of physical access control measures. All of the areas are under constant video surveillance along with armed guards who are on duty 24/7.

The Telepoint data center operates up to the highest standards for storage, management and dissemination of data and information. It has an ISO:9001 Quality Management System certification and an ISO:27001 Information Security System certification. Their full redundancy, the quality control and the information security systems allows for a promise of 99.999% service uptime.

Currently only shared hosting clients can utilize the Telepoint data center, however I do plan to allow VPS clients to utilize the new Eastern Europe location shortly.

Wix Launches ShoutOut   An Email Newsletter Tool / internet news  / wix 336x280 0

Website builder Wix.com has launched a new tool to allow users to create and send email newsletters from within their Wix dashboard. The new tool, called Wix ShoutOut, attempts to replace a few of the previously available Wix Apps for setting up mailing lists and sending out newsletters by offering all the same functionality from within the users Wix dashboard.

Furthermore Wix ShoutOut allows the user to customize template newsletters and has access to all stock images provided by Wix. Social sharing functionality and email analytics are also included.

Wix ShoutOut is the first product that uses the recently launched WixHive API, which allows formerly standalone apps installed on a users’ site through the Wix App Market to share collected data. The collected data, such as contact information, is stored and managed on the dashboard, and is accessible to products like ShoutOut. With ShoutOut, users can also import contacts from external contact lists like Gmail or Outlook.

We allow small business owners to create and manage their online presence with enterprise-level solutions but without the need for enterprise-level resources. Wix ShoutOut is a classic Wix product – it provides a user-friendly and code-free solution for a highly sought after business need,” Avishai Abrahami, Wix Co-Founder and CEO said. “This is the latest addition to our comprehensive product suite, and we see it as an important step in furthering the Wix vision of creating a true operating system for the web.

Wix ShoutOut is currently available in beta to all 50 million Wix customers and as such is offered free of charge for now. There will be paid options upon its full release.

Google Lets You Know When Pages May Not Work On Your Device

Earlier this week Google announced a change to their mobile search results bringing in notifications to let a user know when results include pages that may not work on their devices. For example on a device that doesn’t support Flash Google will include a message with the result that says, “Uses Flash. May not work on your device.”

Google Lets You Know When Pages May Not Work On Your Device / seo talk internet news  / flash serp note

A common annoyance for web users is when websites require browser technologies that are not supported by their device,” writes Google’s Keita Oda and Pierre Far. “When users access such pages, they may see nothing but a blank space or miss out a large portion of the page’s contents. Fortunately, making websites that work on all modern devices is not that hard: websites can use HTML5 since it is universally supported, sometimes exclusively, by all devices,” the Googlers say.

Frankly I love this idea. I can’t tell you how many times I have searched for something on my iPhone only to end up visiting a blank page because the site is still built in Flash. So hopefully this will push webmasters to update their websites to the latest technologies, and at the same time make all of our lives easier while we browse the internet.
