Web Hosting Reviews: Digging to Find the Honesty & Truth

by Mark Runyon • December 14, 2013

Web Hosting recommendations aren’t hard to unearth on the Internet. I just typed in web hosting reviews into Google and got back 162 million results — yes million. Now the real question is how many of those reviews are actually genuine and trustworthy. You’d probably have an easier time finding a kid who hates Christmas. […]

by Mark Runyon • November 28, 2013

As far as technology companies go, Google is one of the cooler ones building out cyberspace and changing how we think about technology. They are creating some of the most cutting edge products on the market and many are still flying under the radar of Joe Public. If you thought Google only helped you search […]

The long awaited iPhone 5s & 5c have been released into the wild only to be met with a collective wave of cheers and yawns. Some love the fresh colors and new features while others wonder why the once cutting edge company is failing to keep pace with its competitors. Now that we’ve seen all […]

by Mark Runyon • September 9, 2013

WordPress is, well, the cats pajamas. For your interesting factoid of the day, cats pajamas was used by hipsters in the 1920s to refer to a person who was the best at what they do. I really can’t heave enough accolades on the platform, or its open source community. Though WordPress is painfully easy to […]

Lawyers just seem to tap into that wasteland of society that wants to live off the hard work of others. I see these injury lawyers beating their drum in the […]

by Mark Runyon • July 20, 2013

I discovered long ago that domains have power even if you never intend to build a website on them. Certain keyword domains can generate a nice sum of traffic over their lifespan. In the infancy of the web, an entire industry cropped up to take advantage of this new phenomenon (i.e. domaineers & their army […]


Copyright Status of Archived Web Content on an Expired Domain
