We are upgrading the reliability and redundancy of our network

Understanding that high network reliability is the lifeblood of our clients, we are implementing network upgrades in a series of maintenance windows starting this August and lasting through September 2018. Why more than one maintenance window? Best practice mandates minimizing introducing too many variables at one time. In fact, over the past two decades, Hostirian has systematically implemented strategies to keep pace with technological advances.

“Our network is continually evolving in order to effectively maintain a redundant network with no single point of failure,”  said Dakota Jones, Hostirian’s Director of Network Operations.

To accomplish this with minimal disruption to our clients, we routinely schedule an orderly and well-prepared series of maintenance windows during time frames outside of peak business hours.

“Our goal,” according to Sascha Wintz, Vice President of Hostirian, “is to maintain a scalable and highly reliable network according to current standards.”

As always, we’re here to help 24 x 7 x Forever. Our support staff is physically located in the data-center so if you have an issue with your service, we are here to help you resolve that issue immediately. You do not have to wait or play phone tag to get ahold of someone who can actually help you with your problem.

 

Editing Text in WordPress

Note: The Page and Post text-editor are functionally the same, therefore the information provided here can be applied to editing the text in either-or.

From the dashboard, go to either Pages or Posts and then click on the title of the post/page which you would like to edit (Alternatively, you can hover over the title and select Edit whenever it pops up underneath). Doing so will take us to, obviously, edit the page or post of our choosing, and it is here that we will be able to enter and edit the text.

-Adding text is simple. So simple, in fact, that it works just like every other website or computer document…simply hover your cursor over the empty space and click. Now you can begin typing away.

-To make any of your text bold, highlight the word(s) you would like bolded, and then click the Bold button in the text editor tool bar (the large, capital B).

-To italicize your text, you will perform the same actions as you did when you went to bold, only select Italics button instead (the slanted I).

-You can align your post/page, or even just certain parts of the text, but highlighting the appropriate text and selecting one of the alignment options (align left, align center, or align right).

You should be able to get a solid understanding of what your text will look like within the editor box, but if you would like a better preview just select the Preview Changes button under the Publish box.

How to add a heading in WordPress

Heading styles not only give your viewers a better visual representation of what the important points of what your post and pages really are, they also help search engines determine the important content on your site, helping improve your visibility.

To create headings, use the styling options drop-down menu in the first row of the toolbar (the default styling is “Paragraph”). Highlight the text you would like to modify, and use the drop-down menu to select a different style. By default, WordPress offers six different heading styles for highlighting points on your content or for separating topics on the same page – Heading 1 is usually the largest and most important, incrementally scaling down for each of following headings.

When your content is formatted as you would like it to appear on your site, remember to save or publish your content!
