Tracking tools can be easily installed on any phone if you have physical access to them. After installation, the application on the phone you want to monitor simply disappears. This way, the person whose phone you are tracking will have no idea that you have a chance to peek into her/his privacy without permission. These applications are intended primarily for parental control. That is their primary purpose. Minor children in today’s world full of challenges and dangers need extra supervision. However, on the other hand, these applications often know how to be used for bad purposes. When we say bad intentions, we mean primarily unauthorized review of adult correspondence and invitations.

Why would anyone do something like that? The motives are numerous: from jealousy to mistrust, and if this “game” is revealed, the relationship will still be shaken. These applications are most often used by jealous spouses, but there is a great possibility that your boss will do the same to “gain” trust and security in your loyalty. Either way, neither case can be justified. You may not have thought in this direction so far, but anything is possible. If you are still not sure if someone is monitoring your intimate correspondence and calls, we will offer you the following 6 ways to know your phone is being tracked.

  1. Your battery drains much faster

You may have thought that your phone was worn out and that it was time to replace it because the battery started to discharge much faster. You wouldn’t want us to put a worm of doubt in your head: maybe you’re right, and maybe your phone is draining your battery in a hidden way. Spyware icons may not be visible on the monitored phone, but that doesn’t mean they are not sucking your battery. Let’s face it, running out of battery doesn’t mean someone is spying on you right away, but if that happens and you already have doubts, you’d better double-check.

  1. Unusual noise during a telephone conversation

No matter how long you use your mobile phone, you know how it works. A sudden change in the operation and sound of your phone can be a warning of various irregularities. But if you notice that you suddenly hear strange noises while making a phone call, you can almost be sure that hackers or someone else is eavesdropping or following you. It is important to know that noises or unusual echoes of voices are not a normal concept unless one of the parties speaking is not on the road or in a place where the range is quite weak. If this situation recurs, you better take your phone to a professional to check if you have a spy app.

  1. The device overheats very quickly

Surely you are used to your phone warming up while playing your favorite game or after a long phone conversation. Depending on the brand of the device, this is a somewhat normal occurrence. However, if you notice that your phone heats up much faster than usual, it can only indicate one thing: that your phone “works” even when you don’t already know. Updating data related to an application that you do not even know exists on your device consumes a large number of resources. This certainly causes the phone to overheat.

  1. Data consumption higher than usual

The spy app monitors or records your messages and calls. Certainly, depending on the motive, it can record your daily activity online and in general, and even location. It sends all this information from your phone to the customer’s phone. With this process, it is clear to you that it consumes a large amount of data. You can easily see this through the increased consumption of data from your device. This can be another sure sign that your phone is being tracked. However, all these 4 symptoms follow each other, and if you notice them together, you can be sure that this is what you were afraid of.

  1. Unusual item on your mobile phone bills.

You may not have paid attention to the items in your mobile phone bill so far. If you suspect your phone has been stalked, check everything out. Such applications are usually charged. The price may not be so high that you can recognize the novelty from the account balance itself, but if you look at the items you pay for, you may get an answer. So, always check your bills before you intend to pay them.

  1. Strange messages

Suddenly, strange messages began to arrive periodically. Most often, these are messages that look like mathematical code or some string of numbers and signs. These may be messages that are sent to your phone. The spyware software installed on your phone itself works by receiving these messages even though they should not be noticed. Many people will ignore them, but those who know these things must pay attention. It is not strange that such messages appear in your mail.

Knowing that your phone was tapped, regardless of the amount and quality of information that was transmitted, is an unpleasant experience. As much as you claim it doesn’t touch you, practicing your intimacy isn’t something that can truly leave you indifferent. However, under normal circumstances, none of us will pay more attention to the items we have mentioned in this text. To pay attention to these things, you will always have to be motivated more. Ask yourself if you heard anything dubious or if someone close to you said or did something suspicious. Remember that your phone must be in the hands of a person who wants to install something like this. A brief disappearance of your phone or its discovery under strange circumstances can be a great sign that you need to make a good check to see if someone has had full access to the phone. So it would be best to put a code on your phone that you have never told anyone.

What once seemed like a far-off fantasy has now become a reality — robots are involved in our everyday lives.

On a consumer level, robots and artificial intelligence systems have become household staples, from automated vacuums to Google Homes. On an industrial level, robots and AI processes are helping different industries in a variety of ways.

In some cases, robots are taking over tedious jobs to replace humans, and in other cases, robots are working alongside humans to help, but not completely taking over jobs. Robots that work in tandem with humans are called “cobots.”

Robotics, cobots, and AI systems are all helping different industries improve the safety of human workers, increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and much more.

Let’s dive into how robots are lending helping a helping hand in healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, construction, and food service.

Healthcare

Img source: pexels.com

In the healthcare field, robots are making processes more efficient on small and large scales.

On the mundane side of healthcare tasks, robots are helping restock and transport medications and supplies. While restocking supplies doesn’t sound like much help, it makes a difference for care teams.

According to MedCityNews, “Nurses are spending more time on indirect patient care activities like paperwork, traveling to supply rooms, and entering medication orders than in the past.” When nurses and doctors spend most of their day taking inventory or hunting down supplies, they are spending less time on patient care. Some nurses reported spending at least 2 hours a day on indirect patient care. If those two hours can be freed up to see more patients, it’s a win-win for everyone.

Another way robots are easing the schedules of doctors and nurses is by assisting patients as they get out of bed.

Robots are also taking over more serious tasks, like incisions during surgery. When robots are used for incisions, they work more precisely and leave less damage than human hands do. Plus, at a certain scale, some incisions are too small for even the steadiest human hand.

Microbots are also being used in the medical field to detect and treat diseases. Essentially, a patient will swallow a tiny camera so that doctors can take images of certain areas — like the colon — to detect tumors. Using microbots is a minimally invasive way to help patients.

Manufacturing

One of the biggest ways robots are helping the manufacturing industry is by automating processes and cutting costs.

Not only do robots speed up assembly processes, but they also take humans out of dangerous processes. Robots are helping in almost all parts of assembly lines — moving parts, gluing pieces together, guiding parts, and more.

Robots are also increasing workplace safety and keeping humans out of harm’s way. Robots don’t get tired after a 15-hour shift like humans do, which means they can work longer hours while keeping the same accuracy. AI systems are also being used to detect any machine malfunctions and shut them down or alert workers before anyone gets hurt.

Beyerdynamic, an audio accessories manufacturer in Germany, implemented two assembly line robots that increased the production rate by 50%. Even with limited floor space in their factory, human workers could easily work alongside these robots to do their tasks.

Robots also have a relatively quick ROI. Within two years, most robots and automated systems will pay for themselves. This also saves companies money, since they don’t have to pay human workers on the floor when robots take over tasks.

Agriculture

Img source: pexels.com

Another industry using robotics to increase productivity and lower costs is agriculture. Robots are helping farmers by getting tedious, repetitive tasks off their plates so they can spend their precious time on more pressing matters that keep the business running smoothly.

Farmers are using self-guided harvesters and tractors. The machines are guided by a GPS, automating major operations like mowing, spraying, weed removal, and pruning. Robotic devices are also being used to pick fruit and crops. One company, Energid, has increased its picking rate by approximately 50%, and sensor technologies are used to check crops for pests or diseases that affect crops.

Drones are used on farmlands to get an aerial view of crops, harvests, and fields in real-time. Using drones for surveying land helps free up farmers’ time since they don’t have to go out into their land (which could be many acres) to check on a single section of crops. More sophisticated drones and software, like one from PrecisionHawk, “automatically converts aerial data into an easier-to-understand analysis. It provides orthomosaics, 3D models, crop health analysis tools, volume measurement, and the ability to collect, process, manage, share and analyze aerial data. In addition, the software allows users to communicate and collaborate with team members.”

Construction, Oil, and Gas

Img source: pexels.com

In industries like construction and oil & gas, robots are helping immensely by keeping human workers out of dangerous situations and taking over tedious tasks.

Robots are used for more tedious (but essential) tasks like bricklaying. Robots that lay bricks account for many environmental factors while performing the job, like wind and vibrations, to build the sturdiest and most efficient structure possible. Robots are also being used to paint, enabling human workers to focus on more critical tasks.

In the oil & gas industry, robots are taking over hazardous tasks like industrial tank cleaning. Any container or tank holding oil needs to be cleaned. The traditional method includes a human entering the tank and manually cleaning it, putting the worker in a very dangerous confined space. Instead, tank cleaning robots from Ecorobotics enable humans to control the tank cleaning robots remotely, leaving humans out of the hazardous parts of tank cleaning tasks.

Food

Img source: pexels.com

Robots are helping the food industry in many ways as well.

Domino’s Pizza has a self-driving delivery car that delivers pizza to residential homes, while Little Caesar’s has a patented robotic arm that helps make pizza in-store. Their robot spreads dough, adds toppings, and places pizzas in the oven. Utilizing robots in both of these instances helps limit the spread of germs. Touchless contact is in heavy demand post-pandemic, and robots are helping support this development.

In China, a robot called Cruzr is being utilized in grocery stores to recommend wine pairings to shoppers that accompany the food they’re buying.

Robotics Are Here To Stay

Robots are becoming more and more popular to help streamline processes, take over mundane tasks, increase productivity, and lower costs for many industries. You can expect to see even more robots in everyday life; they’re here to stay, and the robotics industry is only growing.

How to Change the Default Web Browser in Windows 11? https://vermontrepublic.org/change-default-web-browser-in-windows-11/ Wed, 03 Nov 2021 09:46:37 +0000 https://vermontrepublic.org/?p=6250 All users who have made the transition from Windows 10 to Windows 11 could notice a big change when they click on a link to a web page and when they open a PDF document or various other types of formats.

All users who have made the transition from Windows 10 to Windows 11 could notice a big change when they click on a link to a web page and when they open a PDF document or various other types of formats. Microsoft automatically directs the user to the Microsoft Edge web browser.

Microsoft has obviously decided to set things up on Windows 11 differently and seems to be imposing the use of its applications. Microsoft’s aggressive approach not only involves discouraging users from using other applications and imposing their own choices but seeks to turn all default Microsoft applications in Windows into those that are constantly used. In this way, Microsoft Edge has become the default browser in Windows that users will not get rid of so easily.

The Process of Changing Your Web Browser Isn’t Easy…

Img source: pexels.com

For example, in a situation where a user goes to a web browser for the first time and chooses Google Chrome, a notification will appear inside their window asking the user if they want to make Microsoft Edge their default web browser. While the existence of similar notifications should mean that, in general, choosing a default web browser in Windows 11 is a simple process, it is not. In situations where you want to change Microsoft Edge as a web browser and vice versa, changing the settings requires a little more effort on the part of the user.

Let’s take the example that a user does not want Microsoft Edge to be the default web browser, and their favorite web browser does not offer them the option to do it themselves or automatically sends them to the “Default apps” menu. In this case, the users must set up the default web browser themselves. The example that follows is related to the use of Google Chrome, but the same procedure should be used with other web browsers.

What Specifically Needs to Be Done?

Within the “Settings” menu, click on “Apps” and select “Default apps”. The “Set defaults for applications” section will appear inside the window, below which there is a list of different formats and programs with which they can be opened. The web browser that the user prefers can be accessed by scrolling or entering their names in the “Search apps” field and performing a search.

Windows 11 operating system shows the use of web browsers much more complex because it gives a list of different types of formats that are related to web browsers. Complete changes that were made in prior clicks in previous Windows are no longer possible on Windows 11.

The user must now review all formats that are opened using a web browser and find those for which Microsoft Edge is set as the default web browser. These can be, for example, formats such as HTM, HTML, HTTP, HTTPS, or PDF. Modifications must be made to each format, otherwise, they will be opened by Microsoft Edge.

When making changes, a pop-up notification will appear stating the benefits of Microsoft Edge and the “Check it out” and “Switch anyway” buttons will be offered. You need to click on “Switch anyway” to make the change. There is another pop-up notification that may also appear when changing the default web browser in a particular format. An example is the implementation of a change to the default web browser in the HTM format. The notification will contain a question on how the user wants to open HTM formats and in the first place they will be offered Microsoft Edge under the title “Keep using this app”. Here you simply need to select the desired web browser within the “Other apps” section.

There is a possibility that some of the other web browsers in use have already been adapted and that setting them up for the default web browser instead of Microsoft Edge will be easier on Windows 11, but it is recommended to review the “Default apps” menu to determine that all intended format implemented changes. It is also important that users pay attention to each subsequent opening of Microsoft Edge after setting another web browser as the default. A pop-up notification will open inside the Edge, prompting the user to restore the settings as recommended by Windows. Of course, such notice should only be ignored.

That’s Not All…

Img source: pexels.com

Do you think this is the end of setting up a default web browser? Microsoft made sure it is not.

Microsoft Edge will be the preferred web browser for a large number of Windows applications even when the user has already made changes and selected another web browser as the default code for the formats offered under the “Set defaults for applications” section. For example, the new widget panel in Windows 11 contains news that is thematically sorted, and clicking on them will open a link in Microsoft Edge. If the user wants to change such situations as well, they will have to make changes to the settings.

You need to enter the “Settings” menu, click on “Apps”, and select “Default Apps”. It must then be scrolled down the window until the “Choose defaults for link types” section is found. In the search bar below the title, type “Edge” and click on the search result, which appears below as “Microsoft Edge” with a recognizable logo. A pop-up window will open where you can choose which program will open certain links. The first choice under the “Keep using this app” section is Microsoft Edge and you should select your preferred web browser below as the second option (“Other options”).

If you really don’t prefer Microsoft Edge and want to set up your default web browser faster (because you simply got used to e.g. Chrome to surf the Internet, wager at casinos by the link of top software providers, etc.) you can download a tool called EdgeDeflector.

As time goes on and as things go, the world changes. Apart from the changes in the world, there are also changes in the spheres of living and acting. There are many areas of action that change regularly, and only one of them is the technology and the tech world. This sphere changes most often, most, and the fastest. If we look realistically, this sphere is changing day by day, more and more every day. This means that it is evolving and day by day it is getting better and better, with more novelties and solutions for the situations that people face in everyday life from virtually every aspect.

Technology is the solution to everything, scientists say. According to them, this is the starting point that seeks the root of the problem and then works on a solution according to which a solution to the problem should be reached. You know, there are a huge number of situations that are not resolved in everyday life, and that means an opportunity for the advancement of technological processes and thinking. Realistically, it is the daily routine of scientists to look for new, easier ways to function. For example, they do not choose a field, they work in education, sales, agriculture, production, and even in the part of games of chance that are more and more available today.

If technology is focused on something then it is on the disadvantages that certain branches have, and there are many such disadvantages when it comes to games of chance. So engineers have a daily need, but also daily tasks to research something new and in that regard, to examine it, to test it and if it proves to be the right solution and as the right decision to apply it in a certain part of games of chance. The technology in particular is aimed at finding a solution in the casino industry that falls under the games of chance.

This industry needs constant upgrading and constant technological advancement and application of technological solutions in it. That is why it is being worked on all the time and the results are visible, and they will be even more visible in the future. This branch requires modernization and improvement of its operation, which is why so much attention is focused on it. What is the application, ie the application of technology in the casino industry and how the whole process is progressing, you will find out today because that is exactly the topic we will discuss.

Technological development and rise of the world

Img source: freepik.com

What should not surprise us at all is the fact that the world is changing and evolving every day. The changes and the development are in that direction, for example, today there is no solution for some part of the everyday solution, and tomorrow the whole situation is solved in an easy and simple way that everyone will like and that everyone will easily and simply apply. That is the goal of scientists, to research and find a solution that will be easily accepted and easily applied by those who use that solution to facilitate their work.

Thus, they work on their own projects and problems on a daily basis, which then leads to the development of the world from a technological point of view, which means that the world is in a state of development that represents a rise for the world and for all humanity. Technological development is an unstoppable process that begins now and continues unabated. It is a process that does not stop because there are too many problems to solve and branches in which there are shortcomings and that is why it is necessary to solve everything. Otherwise, one of those branches is the casino industry, which we will talk about below.

The casino industry is one of the industries that has the fastest and most visible technological development and application of new technologies

If we take the fact that casinos are one of the most visited places (virtual and real-time) then we can say with confidence that they are one of the industries that have the fastest technological development, but also one of the industries that have the greatest application of new technologies.

Img source: freepik.com

Go back only 15 years ago when casinos still operated on the old principle of operation, ie they still figured only in the physical version. Things started to change 15 years ago. Employees of some of the games with a fully equipped principle of working with digital machines that do all the work have started to be replaced, and as an example for that are the roulette games or slot machines that are completely digital. Then development can be seen in terms of online versions of casinos.

This is a special area in which it can be said that there is the greatest progress. Wondering why? Because there are more and more of them, every day there is a change that is immediately accepted by the people and that is immediately applied on these pages.

The sites are becoming more modern, they have a more modern selection of games, you can pay for them with the help of electronic banking, they are safe, and that makes them special, as evidenced by starwarscasinos.com which is one of the most popular sites that offer this type of entertainment. according to the new standards imposed by technology, and casino game developers need to meet and apply them. It is proof that engineers do not rest, and that in the world of technology there is work with every day, that changes and new ways are sought to make something better and to find an easier way for the organization of casino games.

Growth and development is impossible without the existence of technology, much less without the existence of engineers working on solutions to achieve easier operation. The gambling industry will continue to grow thanks to technological advances that will continue to be applied regularly day by day.

1. Saving Money, Effort, and Time

With the help of artificial intelligence, your company can work better. There is no need to invest too much money, time, and effort. As compared to machines, human beings cannot work for unlimited hours. If you want to analyze data for the whole night, it can be relatively complex for you. But it is nothing for technology.

Within a blink of an eye, you can analyze millions of pieces of information without applying much effort. It is relatively challenging to do repetitive jobs for a human. But AI can do a single job for an unlimited time. Sometimes, we find it difficult to decide because we have to calculate many and make an appropriate decision based on it.

You can prevent such a situation by adopting this innovation. In this way, we can save our time and effort. But we can also save money by reducing the labor cost. We need a few people who can handle the technology by operating it with ease.

2. Generating Business Insights

Sometimes, we need to filter out the valuable information from the bulk data. There is no use to keep the useless data, and therefore, it is better to separate it. If you have any queries, you can ask it from AI, and you will get all the answers. This technology converts information into valuable knowledge. You can detect future outcomes and hence, make predictions based on them.

A business can get future insights and, in this way, one can know the possibilities of attaining profits in the future. Your business can get the support of predictive analysis with the help of machine learning. In every organization, knowing the insights can be beneficial for future growth.

3. Minimizing Errors

Making mistakes is a common human nature, and you cannot do anything about it. But you can adopt AI technology to resolve your problems to some extent. Undoubtedly, AI can also make mistakes. But the chances of making errors are relatively less than human beings. Therefore, in many cases, you will get more accuracy.

If you have some data, it will be easy to make better decisions than humans. There is no risk of getting biased, as we humans get. Without considering any equality, AI can provide better decisions. There are fewer chances of human errors or unnecessary judgments.

4. Better User Experience

A business exists to make its customers happy and satisfied. AI technology is not only helpful for companies but also for consumers. You can use artificial intelligence to collect data and provide better assistance to them. It is easy to gather their data from various social media platforms like Facebook, Google, etc. You can know what your consumers want and how you can fulfill their needs.

Customers feel good whenever they get desired results on any online platform. It is possible to understand user behavior by using this technology. You can also connect with your customers through real-time methods and provide all the necessary information.

Undoubtedly, it is hard to survive in this competitive world, and you have to do your operations differently. You have to think about various strategies to make loyal customers and increase your sales. Therefore, adopting such an innovative technology can help you do all these tasks effectively.

5. Knowing Business Opportunities

It is necessary to recognize the opportunities to expand your business. Sometimes, we are close to such opportunities, but we forget to accept them or never recognize them. If you want to improve your business scope and grow further, then you must use AI.

Every company aims to stand differently against its competitors, and it is possible only when you grab such opportunities. You can use some analytic applications to get help for making better decisions.

6. Digital Transformation

Nowadays, the need for self-service interfaces has been increased, and users are dependent on them to get any information about the company. It includes various solutions, such as chatbots, cloud management systems, data security, and much more. The users do not rely on anyone, and hence, they look for solutions by themselves.

This digital transformation is possible only with the help of AI technology. It can help customers to get engaged with the sales team of the company by themselves. It will enhance the user experience and hence, attract more customers to your business. Operate your organization as per the latest trends.

Final Thoughts

Undoubtedly, artificial intelligence can help various businesses to grow and solve their problems. You can go through all the mentioned issues that AI can fix with ease. Humans are not good enough to work all the time and make the right decisions. They may need assistance to work effectively and grow their company.

Switching to any innovative technology is a perfect solution to solve your problems. Currently, many businesses are using artificial intelligence, and they have a good reputation in the market.

Consider all the mentioned benefits and adopt this technology to expand your business effectively. In this way, you will follow all the latest trends and provide a better user experience to your customers. There are more chances to make enough sales.

  1. You will need a mentor

Successful completion of this very difficult task will be greatly facilitated by your mentor, of course if you have one. It is very important that you find someone who has already completed CCIE to help you and guide you through the whole process. The information you get this way will be crucial, because you will know exactly what to focus on and what is less important. If you do not have someone experienced by your side, it will be very difficult for you to finish everything successfully. So I advise you to immediately go in search of a mentor.

  1. Focus on lab training

Daily multi-hour lab practice is necessary to learn everything. Most of those who successfully completed CCIE say they spent at least 5 hours a day practicing. It is important that you understand all the concepts and then do everything as quickly as possible. Even if you have the knowledge, you must not be slow. And as we know, only with practice you will achieve the speed of solving.

  1. Stay updated

It is not enough to just learn and practice, but you must have in mind that it is necessary to always be up to date with the latest changes concerning the CCIE exam.

Versions change frequently, so if you don’t follow all the changes, you may miss something very important. As you can read at https://cciedump.spoto.net/ccie-dumps.php the CCIE exam has recently undergone changes.

Cisco changes its exam system to a new level from Feb. 24th 2023 and that is exactly what brought the change to have a core exam and an 8-hour lab. So always be careful and follow everything related to examinations, equipment and software or otherwise you are risking all your effort to be in vain.

  1. Use different learning resources

Don’t learn from just one book because this is such a vast field. And certainly one book cannot provide all the necessary knowledge. So get as much study material as possible and read it. Also, follow blogs, forums and all other places where you can find out things related to the CCIE.

  1. Pay attention to your diet

There are things that are crucial to success and are not directly related to CCIE. One of those things is definitely proper nutrition and hydration. You will be exposed to a lot of stress and effort during the period when you are preparing for the lab exam, so this can have a negative impact on your body. That is why it is important to eat healthy and nutritious food. Although you are short on time, do not eat junk food and the like, but try to prepare meals that will satisfy your macronutrient intake. Also, drink plenty of water. While you study, you will be consuming a lot of caffeine for sure, which will make you dehydrated, so increase your water intake. It will not be worth all your knowledge if you are not physically and mentally ready when the exam day comes.

  1. Visualize

Visualization is a technique used by many successful athletes and other people. This way you can reduce stress and increase self-confidence. Of course, this will not be enough for you if you have not learned everything that is necessary, but it can be crucial, because you will overcome fear.

Conclusion

In the end, we want to wish you luck and to remind you once again that if you have in mind all these things that we have told you about, the chances of success will be very high

In detail, you will get the comprehended information about web hosting services VPS, the definition of VPS hosting, slight details on the shared hosting server, and also the comparison between the Virtual Private Server (VPS) with the dedicated server. Let’s get started to go collect the information below.

VPS Web host

Virtual Private Server or commonly called VPS for the majority of people, is a perfect solution in website hosting are because it has several features that make the process in website hosting is able to be more optimized in the performance aspect, security, and also the accessibility. Before we dig more in-depth about the definition of vpsserver and its benefits to our website hosting activity, you need first to understand what is hosting in the website hosting area and the procedure in the hosting for your website. Let’s get started.

Hosting

Hosting is an activity to make a website can exist in the digital environment. Once a website appears in the digital environment, a website can be accessed by people worldwide by the internet without limited by time and space. You can get many advantages with this method. Some are described as Effective media for product and service campaigns, self-actualization, learning media, and personal marketing where you can offer your expertise and skills there. Research has revealed that the development of selling through online platforms such as e-commerce or marketplace is experiencing thriving for the last decade. It is common because the internet or online platform breaks the global selling rules that bind a person by time and space. Today, people from the Philippines can be easily selling or buying goods from a seller in the United States with a simple click on their desktop or phones.

The hosting activity procedure is starting from the visitor’s computer of the other devices that their browser will send the request signal or message to the server computer on your website hosting establishment. After that, the computer will process the request signal or message on their processor to identify the request with the database’s indexed data. Next, the server computer will dive into the datacenter and finding the required files to be sent back to the visitor’s desktop. Finally, the required data or files are sent to the client’s computer and ready to be enjoyed.

The whole process seems complicated for the common people to understand, but actually, the process can be done in milliseconds matter. Then what about a process that spends more time than a second? Research says that a website that took a load-page duration of more than three seconds has a higher percentage to be not visited in the future. Load-page time is closely related to the user experience (UX). A user with a bad user experience in your website means no further visit in the future.

The hosting process in the VPS (Virtual Private Server) is similar to the common hosting activity. The things that differentiate VPS hosting and the other website hosting services are located in the resource allocation, virtual computer, and also the component in its database.

Resource Allocation

Virtual Private Server (VPS) is using the dedicated resource method in the resource allocation. This method allows the user to get the full resource for their website hosting for themselves without sharing it with the other user. Bay this procedure, the user can get better protection and the fastest performance for their website hosting activity.

Protection or security in the website hosting is a must because, in your data storage, you are storing your selling progress information, customer’s information, essential files for your business, and the invoices. If it gets trouble caused by the outside attacks, your business can directly get into trouble. To avoid that, you can use the Virtual Private Server (VPS) or dedicated server to make the data and files in your website hosting database become safer than before.

Virtual Computer

A virtual computer is a manifestation of the real physical computer that is digitalized or virtualized to create the most effective and efficient allocation for the user using a Virtual Private Server in the world. The performance given from virtualized computer is similar to the physical computer. Hence, you can make several virtual computer arrangements, such as installing software, changing, installing software, or even changing the operating system (OS) from Windows operating system to Linux operating system (or the opposite).

Database

Virtual Private Server is mostly and always powered with the latest technology on its computer’s components. For example, the hardware used in its database is always using the SSD (Solid-state drive) instead of HDD (Hard disk drive), which producing the fastest performance in the data transfer. The transfer process is also supported by the high-end processor that able to help the speed performance in the hosting activity.

Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is one of the website hosting services that having the characteristic to spare its resource with several users at the same time. Shared hosting is the best option if you need a website hosting service at a lower price with minimum features. The majority of a shared hosting server is dominated by the newcomer website hosting practitioners or the small business that needs to save more instead of finding the best website hosting services that can give them the best performance to boost the selling.

For the performance comparison, shared hosting is having the advantage in its low-price that affordable for most people compared with Virtual Private Server (VPS). It is normal because you can buy iron cheaper than gold, right? If you are a newcomer in the website hosting area, you can use shared hosting for the first step, and for further action, you need to move to VPS for better performance in any aspect of your website.

Everyone nowadays has a YouTube app on their phones to watch entertaining, educational, or music videos. But do you know many people make a fortune by creating videos on YouTube instead of watching videos?

Well, they are. It is all about YouTube monetization rules. If you want to make money on YouTube, you need to have at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time on your YouTube channel over the last 12 months.

img source: unsplash.com

But precisely what is YouTube watch time?

Watch time, also known as audience retention, is the total time frame in aggregate that viewers invest in watching your YouTube videos. It has replaced YouTube views and become the top rating element in rating videos since the YouTube algorithm was updated in October 2012, which means if your video has a surge in watch time, it is prone to be promoted to the recommended page by YouTube, which often brings about a lot more organic views and subscribers for your channel.

But it will take a lot of time to get 4,000 YouTube watch hours, especially for a new and small creator on YouTube without many videos and subscribers. But there is always a way if you look for it. Keep reading if you are researching ways to increase your YouTube watch time and monetize your YouTube channel.

In the following paragraphs, you’ll discover four useful ways to enhance your YouTube watch time.

Select Titles and Thumbnails That Concisely Reveal Your Content

img source: pexels.com

The titles and thumbnails of the videos are two important factors that affect your video views and watch time. They are the primary elements for viewers to determine whether to simply click to watch or just leave.

Imagine if you are a viewer, and someday a video with “how to make ramen” title appears on your home page, and you happen to want to eat; but after clicking it, you find the video is about making a turkey. Quite disappointing, right? I guess the only thing you will do is to leave this video immediately.

Therefore, working on your video title and thumbnails is definitely worth it. They offer a preliminary description of a video’s content. If your video content matches the title and thumbnails, there is a big chance viewer will watch till the end of your video, helping you boost your watch time.

Compose Playlists to Catch Viewers

The essence of the watch time is to catch the viewers. Only when viewers are willing to watch your video for a long time, your watch time can be increased.

Creating playlists for your various YouTube videos is a great method to imperceptibly drive your viewers to watch your next videos. They will unintentionally watch the next video following behind this video, and another video behind the next video, etc. And your visibility and exposure are continuously increasing. At last, they will fall in love with you!

Also, it is important to organic your videos in an interesting order. When viewers come by and click one of your videos, in some way, your video title or thumbnail that reflects content interests them. So, it is necessary to show them your other related videos on the same topic, therefore prolonging their view retention on your videos.

Bonus tip: when you use the playlist characteristic, clear your video intros and outros out that may lead viewers to quit watching your videos. Continuity matters.

Use Cards Throughout Your Video

There are a number of ways to put cards on your video, nevertheless, the very best technique to keep audiences engaged is to apply these cards to link to other related videos or playlist on your channel that viewers will probably be enthusiastic about. Especially when you add the cards at the end of the video where viewers are normally to decrease away from.

Same as using the playlist feature, these cards will drive your viewers to your other content videos, thus improving your YouTube watch time.

If you still don’t know how to add cards to your video, checking out your strong competitors’ videos in your niche to see how they add the cards and edit their thumbnails is always a great way to get your more watch hours.

Buy YouTube Watch Time from Trustworthy Site

You may not know, many people save their time and energy by buying YouTube watch time to achieve their channel monetization. I have to say, buying watch hours is the most effective way if you have already spent a lot of time on marketing your videos but gaining nothing, especially for new YouTubers.

By buying YouTube watch time, your video can gain not only more watch time but also a great chance to stand out from the sea of YouTube content. When your video is on a higher level compared to others, getting more engaging views and organic subscribers is no longer a tough job.

Please note that there are many places you can buy YouTube watch time. As suggested by Famous Follower, you need to be careful to choose when you buy because there are services that may not only help to increase watch hours but also do harm to your YouTube channel.

Conclusion

Different from Google and other search engines that use spiders to scan articles and links, the YouTube algorithm uses a completely unique way to detect content videos since videos cannot be scanned by spiders. By analyzing several metrics such as the watch time, views as well as subscribers, YouTube recognizes the quality and potential of your video. That’s why you need to pay attention to YouTube watch time. In this way, YouTube will think highly of your video and vigorously promote your YouTube channel.

Don’t just read this article and do nothing. Act now! Combining the above four strategies can greatly help improve your watch time, and consequently, your social proof and visibility on the network.

What is your opinion? Do you use a few of these methods to promote your YouTube videos? Do you have other tips? Discuss your thoughts with us in the comment section below.

With the increasing use of the Internet every day, the number of new software is also increasing. As a developer, you might often start feeling demotivated to work and, at times, lack inspiration. The growth of existing projects and the emergence of new projects can be a tiring task to handle almost every other day.

When you hear the term Software Testing what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Do you think about a particular type of test, for instance, regression testing or functional testing? If so, you are entirely wrong. Software testing is much more than just following a preset testing template to get the result. It is an ongoing process and requires deep concentration.

Most experienced software engineers will tell you that software testing is not a single approach. It is a collection of tests and evaluations that focuses on developing a user-friendly and customer-oriented application in a broader sense. The main aim is to come up with an application that is user-friendly and meets every business and customer needs. Only when software successfully passes all tests it is available for users. Whereas on the other hand, if the software is not up to the mark and lacks in some areas, software testing helps find out the errors that, in turn, help software testers make changes accordingly.

Today, software engineers are looking for more than just a good salary and perks. Most software testers start feeling unmotivated after working just a few days. It is essential to keep your software testers motivated and inspired to continue working. Here, we discuss some of the common ways you can use to keep your software testers motivated to work throughout the year.

Img source: unsplash.com

Communication Is The Key

Every individual is different and has their working preferences. What keeps you motivated to work might not encourage the other person to do it. One might like to dig deeper into technology, whereas the other person might like working on more generic terms. To understand why someone feels unmotivated and is less productive, you need to communicate with that particular person. Engineers are often introverts; they’d instead focus on coding and not focus on sharing their likings. Engineers find it challenging to manage since they do not open up regarding their preferences easily.

However, regular one-on-one conversations might be helpful when it comes to dealing with engineers. During these sessions, managers can ask about their likes and dislike related to the work they perform.

Introduction of New Technology

Technology always keeps changing, and techies often pride themselves on staying updated all the time. If your engineers are working on an outdated and not well-performing system, chances are they might start feeling demotivated to work after a few days. When you are working with software engineers, you need to update your design from time to time.

Apart from an updated technology, when software testers work on a smooth performing tool, they tend to become more efficient. LambdaTest is a useful tool for software testers & developers. This tool offers an up-to-date combination of more than 2000+ browsers and operating systems. With such tools test users will be able to perform responsive testing, screenshot testing, testing of their locally hosted websites & web apps on a single platform.

Regular Cross-Trainings

Once you understand that keeping your software testers updated is necessary for a smooth workflow, you need to start conducting training at regular intervals. Training Programme helps to keep the software testers updated and also keeps them engaged. Also, it helps with performance improvement. Check what the latest technology available is and train your software testers accordingly. Ensure that you are not teaching your engineers’ outdated tools.

Organizations have now understood the importance of knowledge in all areas. The fact that jack of all trades and master of none is not correct. Cross-training opens growth opportunities for employees. When you know of more than just one or two subjects, your value immediately increases.

Nonetheless, not every organization encourages cross-training. If your organization does not conduct any regular cross-training programs from time to time, you can enroll in any institution that offers similar courses. It will add more value to your resume.

Recognition

Every hardworking employee loves to be recognized. Whether they are working on an ongoing process or developing a new one, no one wants their performance and hard work to stay unnoticed. Software engineers like to remain private, and receiving a recognization makes them feel better.

Establishing a work culture where employees are recognized from time to time is necessary for companies. Recognition also helps in building a friendly yet competitive work environment.

Growth Opportunities

Hard work is related to growth. When an employee is working super hard, he/she will expect growth in return. Managers need to understand the growth plan of his/her subordinates and start implementing growth plans according to it. Not every engineer is interested in management; many prefer staying technical. When employees are provided growth opportunities, they tend to perform better. Providing growth opportunities within the organization will ensure your employees stay motivated and focused on their current job role.

Opportunities To Innovate

When software testers are provided with opportunities to innovate, the urge to perform better and stay motivated increases.

You can organize events that encourage engineers to build a new and improved process idea and increase employee motivation. These events are also essential to create a positive working environment.

Streamline and Simplify

Software testing is a very lengthy process, and engineers are always on the lookout for ways to make the process simple. The number of tools required to get the work done is massive. This, in turn, increases the process length. Often these tools do not perform according to their expectations that again hamper the smooth workflow. A process should add value to an employee’s work. Regardless of the process being followed, traditional or Agile, an organization should simplify the process. When a simple yet effective method is followed, employees can focus better on their work.

Increase Employee Engagement

Software engineers often spend hours thinking about their next project. Gamification is an excellent method to uplift your employee’s moods. A working environment with high employee engagement is always better. You can use many different employee engagement tools and techniques and make the workspace a fun place. Conduct weekly games or give points to employees for performing certain activities. It is a great way to keep your employees motivated.

Often a familiar work environment becomes very repetitive and monotonous for employees, which leads to a lack of motivation. With regular fun sessions on the production floor, employee engagement remains high.

Personal Development Session

Organizations should now start understanding the importance of self-care and how it affects workflow. It is crucial to keep yourself as the priority and focus on ways to improve. Various organizations across the world have now started conducted regular grooming sessions for their employees. Your team leader should look for self-growth opportunities and start sharing ways to become a better version of yourself.

Personal development does not only refers to grooming; it also includes training and learning new skills. Organizations these days also have training academies for employees. You can find some high demand skill training here and start learning.

Img source: unsplash.com

Using the Right Tool

It is often noticed that employees often feel demotivated to work when the right tool is not provided to them. Software testing is one such important step in software development that includes multiple tools. Each tool has its importance and function. With new browsers being introduced every single day, cross-browser testing is becoming more crucial.

Cross-browser testing is essentially a process that checks if your application is compatible with most browser + OS combinations or not. Today we use many browsers, and each of them has various versions. When all browser versions and operating systems are listed, the combination list becomes endless. A cross-browser testing tool that aims at simplifying the software development process should always be preferred by developers. Today, you will get various tools that are result driven and provide 100% accurate results.

Automation testing is becoming a high-demand job role day by day. A tool that makes a tester’s life easy is also essential. LambdaTest is one of the popular cross-browser testing tools that developers use. If you launch an application without testing it on various browser+OS combinations, you will not know if your application will work on all combinations or not. Web browsers like internet explorer do not support all applications, and the chances of your application failing to perform are also high.

When an organization launches a new application, the goal is to make it user-friendly and easy to access. Not everyone uses the same browser and device. It is why cross-browser testing is so important. It helps developers understand the error and why it is happening so that they can make the change needed to run the application smoothly on all browser + OS combinations.

These were some of the best practices that most organizations have already started implementing to keep their employees motivated to work. These methods are highly helpful and make the entire work environment pleasant.

Does your organization follow any of the practices mentioned above? Nobody likes working in a monotonous and boring office environment. Following at least one practice is advised.  When you follow two or more actions, the entire work environment becomes fun for developers.
