Would You Be Interested in a Website that Manages All of Your Homeownership Needs?

We are undoubtedly living in a very technology-dependent era, allowing everything from health monitors on our wrists to apps on our phones assist us in the routine care and management of our lives. It seems only natural that someone would develop a website that assists us in managing all of the tasks associated with homeownership.

A new California-based startup has developed a site that allows homeowners to manage everything from scheduling maintenance to adding up the value of property within the home for insurance purposes. Users are able to create comprehensive profiles complete with pictures of their homes and individual rooms to assist them with planning for projects or filing insurance claims.

This also assists homeowners with relaying detailed and current information about their homes to Boston real estate agents when the time comes to sell. For example, if a homeowner has had major work done (such as a roof replaced) or purchased new appliances for the kitchen, all of that information will be easily accessible and organized in one place.

Additionally, if someone purchases a home with stored information on this site, the seller can transfer this information to the buyer so that they can maintain and update the existing profile for that property moving forward.

What do you think? Is this the type of website you feel you could personally make good use of?

Using WordPress as Your Business Website

Should your business website use WordPress?
Every so often we get asked whether to use WordPress framework as the primary content management system versus going with a different platform. WordPress is very powerful and there are many great plugins out there to make your website very dynamic. However, with being so popular(open source) there are also some disadvantages since everyone can get their hands on and view the source code. This poses a security loophole since the bad guys can exploit the vulnerabilities and hack your website in just a few minutes.

So is it safe to use is it for your business ? 
Sure, but all the security vulnerabilities  should be taken care of before going live since WordPress is  out of the box software and there are some security features that need to be enabled or disabled. Having a bullet proof WordPress website is not as easy as you have to take into consideration also your web hosting environment whether its shared or private. More on WordPress hosting here.

Most of the WordPress will get hacked at least once. Its a known fact. Ask anyone who has used WordPress for at least 5 years, they will tell you their hacking experience. Its not fun and its a pain for those who do not know php and MySQL.

So before you decide whether to use WordPress as your business website keep in mind the “security” aspect of this open source framework as it will save you a lot of time and headache.
