Although this website has quite low traffic at the moment in comparison to some other blogs in this niche, I have some quite big plans for it, which will hopefully generate quite a large amount of traffic.

Content Is KeyI have a simple plan to getting traffic and growing the site, which I am going to make a blog post about soon, there are a few hint’s of the technique within this post.

Quick update, I have started work on coding a new project.
This will offer people with a cPanel account at ANY host, 1GB of free backup space.
Completely automated website and database backups onto our offsite servers.
Don’t just rely on your host to take backups!

Domain will be annonced shortly, when I have the first version online.
Will be looking for some Beta testers 🙂


Just a quick post, to tell you user submissions at my project site WhatPortIs are now open.
This means if you can’t find a port on there, but know it should be, simply fill out the form and we will get it added.
