Information OVERLOAD In 24 Hours!

I believe most people will have the same thought in their mind. ( once for a while I will be the same )

Today – 15 Feb 2008, after I took my lunch, I went to the book store and looking for business marketing book and some other internet related books. Some of the books title and cover design very attractive and I nearly buy all of them. But lucky my mind told me that I have already bought a lot of books previously and the bad thing is I never read the book until the last page.

The reason is I was attract by those new books. 😉

This is same thing happen on the internet. Many people ( newbie ) have this same problem, they give up the previous course they bought and buy a new courses. I remember last time I received an email from one of my subscriber, and he asked my advise what he should do in order to make money online.

I told him in the email said that “If you’re new to setup the internet business, I suggest you get a complete A-Z course….” and after a few days, he replied to me said that “Sean, the course you recommend to me, I already have previously and I also have several internet courses, ebooks and membership..” but I still failed to make money online.

Guess what? I just replied to him said that “What you need to do is stop reading all of them, just pick one then only concentrate the only one”

We ONLY have 24 hours per day and if you have 3-4 package information waiting for you to study, then where you get extra time to take ACTION? Most of your time have been invested in study the information. Here are an example:

John took 2 courses to study at the same — “Business Marketing” and “Cooking”. After a few weeks later, he was attracted by the graphics design animation, then he decided to take another design course for his interest and want to create his own animation cartoon.

In this case, John will not expert in one of the 3 courses above. Simply because he don’t have extra time to improving 3 of them. After the “Business Marketing” class, then he will need to attend the next “Cooking” class, and so on to the Design class. The whole picture is, John JUST study the information but NOT improving them. Make sense?

Same in today during in the book store, I was attract by the Donald Trump books. But after I think a few times again and again, I decided not to buy the book at this moment because it’s NOT the right time to study the advanced business marketing book right now and it won’t help me much at this moment stage I’m in.

If you’re just a salesperson, the right book need to study is about the sales marketing strategy or any books that related to the marketing. But if you buy some kind of the books like “Business Management”, “Become A Smart Boss”…. then you’re going to waste the money. It’s NOT because the books information not good, but they’re NOT for you at the moment in your stage.

Choose the only one and then concentrate on that, until you achieve certain of level, then move on to the next stage. Just like once you’re able to fully control the Mercedes SLK 200 sport car, then you probably want to move to another stage with Ferrari sport car! LOL

Domain Name, Hosting & DNS Explanation

What is Domain name, hosting and DNS?

Most newbie will confuse about three of these when they just get started. Me too!

1. Domain Name

Domain name will be your Company name.

Example: Google.com , Yahoo.com , SeanTanMarketing.com are called domain name. Or ABCD.net , ABCD.info also are domain name. ( .com , .net , .info are domain extension )

Domain extension explanation:
.COM = Commercial
.NET = Network
.INFO = Information
.ORG = Organization

Choose the right domain extension for your domain name. Example: If your website is provide information to the reader, then the domain extension should be .info or .com ( suggestion ).

2. Web Hosting

Web hosting will be your office. It’s depending how many spaces you have rent from the hosting provider. If you have take 1000MB space hosting, then you can host a lot of web pages and files.

3. DNS ( Domain name server )

DNS will be your office address ( location ). This is use for manage your domain name only.

How to setup domain name and hosting?

First, go to NameCheap.com to register your domain name, and you will get a NameCheap account to manage all your domain name. After you have registered your domain name, go to the hosting provider website and apply a hosting.

Once you have make payment to the hosting provider. You will get the hosting details from the hosting provider within 48 hours or less. The details will be your hosting login details and the DNS ( Domain name server ).

You must change the DNS in your domain name account before your website go live. You must let your domain name know where is your office ( hosting ). So when people type your domain name, they will go to the right website. To change the DNS, login to your NameCheap.com account and look for the Manage domain name > DNS or Domain name server. Insert the DNS that you get from the hosting provider. Save the setting and you’re done.

If you do not change the DNS, then your domain name will NOT know where is your hosting and it will not able to send your visitors to your website. So please remember that you must change the DNS in your domain name account before your website able to go live.

Summary Explanation:

1. Domain name is your company name.
2. Hosting will be your office.
3. DNS is your company address.

Let say your domain name is ABCD.com :

When someone type ABCD.com then it will follow the DNS you have given to him, transfer your visitors to the right hosting. If you have forgotten give the DNS to your domain name, then the domain name will not know where to send your visitors to.

Faq section:

1. I have registered a domain name from NameCheap.com, but why I didn’t get the DNS yet?
If you go to goverment office to register your company name, do they provide you what is your company address? You’re the person who provide them what is your company address when you register your company name.

So where to get a company address (DNS)? You should rent an office ( hosting ) then you will know what is your company address. The answer is the DNS will be provide by the hosting provider NOT domain registrar ( NameCheap.com )

NO office ( hosting ) = NO company address ( DNS )
