Net Neutrality- Internet Freedom in India

Net Neutrality- Internet Freedom in India

Why to defend internet freedom in India?

What is this term “Net neutrality?

In simple words, it is a principle according to which the internet service providers should enable the access to all the applications and content regardless of the source. And also they should not block or favor particular websites or products.

Due to this principle, in India, people can have access to internet and gain knowledge freely. They have the freedom of speech and freedom to use internet. As every internet customer has equal right to access the lawful websites and services without any discrimination.

How can Net Neutrality be violated?

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is planning to allow the telecom companies like Airtel, Vodafone etc. to block websites and some other services or applications for extorting more and more money from customers. And if this happens, this would be an extreme violation of this principle, Net Neutrality.

Why Net Neutrality should not be violated?

Now when you know what the term Net Neutrality means and how TRAI is planning to violate this. Also, Airtel has come up with Zero Marketing Platform. According to this, the Airtel users can use and access those websites or applications (tied -up with Airtel) at zero data charges.

The debate on Net Neutrality has turned out to be a fight against common Indian citizen and big telecom companies. In a democratic country like India it is quite unfair to be a bit ambitious for these big telecom companies. As they only want to make money at any cost and this is not only unfair but also not-ethical for the betterment of the country.

If Net Neutrality is being violated, there will be Internet Discrimination in India. According to Airtel’s Zero marketing platform, one cannot access the websites or applications which will not be allowed by the company.

At the same time, this may have negative impact on startups. Since the country like India, many of the startup businesses may depend on internet only for their sales. And if this freedom of internet gets violated, these starters may get discouraged.

So, in a democratic and developing country like India, Internet access should not be under these private companies so that each and every citizen can enjoy the freedom of speech and freedom of using internet.

How to move a WordPress website ?

How to move a WordPress website ?

Moving a wordpress website is one of the common jobs in the freelance websites since many years.There are many blogs and tutorials explaining the process in detail either by video or by image presentation.

In this post, I will explain the basic steps to bear in mind while moving a wordpress website which are necessary to avoid any future problems.

  • Always take a full backup of the website and database to be moved so that in case you run into any problems there is always a way back saving your precious hard work.
  • Upload the files in the server.
  • Update the htaccess file.
  • If your current website is in the root of the main domain like for example it is as www.developingsense.com and it is to be moved to another domain for example www.thedeveloping.in, then there is no such need of updating the .htaccess file.
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
&amp;amp;amp;lt;/IfModule&amp;amp;amp;gt;
# END WordPress

 

But if your current website is in the root directory of the domain and it has to be moved in any other folder of another domain like www.thedeveloping.in/wordpress, then the .htaccess has to be updated.

 

#BEGIN WordPress
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /theme/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /theme/index.php [L]
# END WordPress 

 

  • Now upload the exported database file to the new hosting using phpmyadmin.Do not forget to change the wp-options table rows. There you have to update the new website url in two places saying site_url and home_url.
  • Now update the wp-config.php file in the root of the directory where wordpress is installed.Here you to write the new database name, hostname, username and password. This is where the database connection error occurs if it is not updated correctly.ik

Above are some of the basic steps we have to take care of while moving the wordpress website. Like we know, during migration many types of problems may occur due to different server configurations and thus never hesitate to follow up in the comments section below and i will be more than happy to help you out in that.

Any suggestions or mistakes found in this post reported will be appreciated.

Template option missing in wordpress

Template option missing in wordpress

Templates in wordpress are of immense use particularly if we want to have a different design for a particular page.Normally,when we create a template a dropdown is shown on the right hand side as a dropdown from where we select the template and then save the page.

But sometimes this option is missing. There can be two reasons behind this.

  1. You have uploaded the template file in the wrong place using FTP .It should always be uploaded in the theme which is active.
  2. The template file is not created properly as you missed the required template tags.
<?php
/* Template name: My Custom Page Template
*/?>
Always start the template file using above tags and can name it accordingly to the purpose which will be served by the template.
