RETS PRO Hosting Servers For WordPress Real Estate Sites

Over the last few months we’ve been busy running promotionals and in the process we’ve added a lot of new host clients on our servers, but growing our hosting side of the business means that there was some additional work needing to get done. Now that we are the primary hosting for our clients I thought I’d dive into some server security hardening over the weekend via mod_security tools and settings. The first thing I always do is slap in my http://www.projecthoneypot.org/home.php – api key and then turn on and configure (tweak) the process settings of some of the other tools/options – then when your done a simple restart of your httpd – DONE. I mention all of this so that anyone else doing their own VPS should know some basics of running a non-managed server so I thought I’d add some MUST:
  1. First thing is to recompile apache with all of the proper server hosting requirements.
  2. Next to do is to install and configure a firewall – I use this one http://www.configserver.com/ (along with 3 of their other items as well).
  3. Next login and modify the server php.ini AND my.cnf file.
  4. Configure server backups for daily,weekly,monthly.
  5. Next thing I do is to log in to servers root CRON and I add in the ability to delete all domains+backups error+debug logs every night. (if you don’t do this then customers sites will grow MASSIVE log files that they don’t even know about that ultimately waste valuable server space. )
  6. Finally login and configure the mod_security tools and settings and be sure to add in your honeypot api.
That’s the “basics” of what’s needed to properly setup your own server or VPS – SO – unless you know what the freak you’re doing you really should let someone else handle it for you or pay for a “Managed” server or vps until you’re a DIY IT pro. If you’d like to hire us to do your Server or VPS setup for you we charge 100 dollars to do the whole process and we only do Cpanel setups and installs. Anyone needing the cheapest VPS Cpanel License here is the place to buy it and the code to enter so that you can get it for only 13 dollars per month.
Promo Codes: “whtbcp30” for dedicated cPanel license, only $30.95!
                        — or —
whtvps13” for VPS cPanel license, only $13.00!
And as per my usual here is my own SEO efforts WordPress Real Estate Plugin for building WordPress Real Estate Sites.

Realtyna Alternatives | WordPress Real Estate Plugin

Realtyna Alternatives

Several times a month we get calls asking us what are the key differences between our RETS PRO WordPress Real Estate Plugin and the Realtyna solution. So let me point out the obvious key Realtyna Alternative differences that set us apart:
  1. Most import key difference (License Branding Limitations) – (We) offer 2 options – an “unlimited use” Developers License with “No License Key” call back requirements that includes ALL add-on modules. (They) “Per-Site/domain-License” with a license key that must be validated. **UPDATE – They have “changed” their license policy on 04-26-2017 …so you’ll need to call them to verify what they have in place now – but either way we have confirmed that they still do not offer any “non-license-keyed” versions as of this update made here on 4-28-2017.
  2. (We) also offer a “2-site Basic License” starting at $499 that already includes the RETS module and comes with more core premium features than anything else out there. (We) also offer Additional site license keys that can be purchased at $299 each. All our add-on modules only need to be purchased once and then they can be used on unlimited sites. (We) Also allow a Basic License owner the ability to upgrade to an Unlimited Use Developers License at any time and we will deduct the originally purchased 499 price from the upgrade cost so no penalty for starting with our basic and then upgrading later if you decide to upgrade. (They) call them to ask them how much they charge for more than one site license. **UPDATE – They have “changed” their license policy on 04-26-2017 …so you’ll need to call them to verify what they have in place now.
  3. (We) are a SEO first company aimed at providing Professional Developers/Programmers looking for a “Limitless Expandable Software Solution” with more SEO goodies than any other software out there -period. (They) well….If YOU are a SEO guru then call them and then call us and decide for yourself who’s solution has the most SEO options.
  4. (We) have the ability to do Commercial applications such as running hundreds of websites off a single db, joining multiple db’s into a large master db, and also hot-linking listing images from a media server as opposed to being forced to only downloading them which requires a dedicated server or VPS. (They) if you want anything mentioned above then you’d better call them first to confirm with them that they can deliver your requirements.
  5. (We) have been actively developing RETS data since 2003 – Our RETS script works with 100% of all RETS providers right out of the box – period! (They) ? Call them.
I hope this outlines the basic “key differences” of our Realtyna alternative. If you would still like more information about our WordPress Real Estate Plugin, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to give you all the information you need to get you on the right path with your project. – Cheers –
