How do I change my URL in WordPress and Why is it so Important to check for broken Links

You can easily change the Site URL for your WordPress page any time you want, but there are a few important adjustments that must be made before making the switch.

Steps to follow:

1. Change WordPress URL in WordPress Admin Dashboard.

  1. After downloading all your site files to your local PC and then moving them to your new URL, you will need to log into your WordPress Dashboard as an administrator.
  2. Next, you will click on Settings from the menu, and then General. …
  3. Then you will enter the new (URL) Addresses on the two fields as shown below.
  4. The next step will be to scroll down the page and click on the Save Changes button.

Now, there is a chance where WordPress Address and Site Address are not editable. In other words, If the fields are not editable (as seen below), it’s most likely because they are hard-coded in wp-config.php file.

So if that is the case then, changing WordPress URL in wp-config.php file may be the solution for it.

2. Change WordPress URL in wp-config.php File

The second most common way to change your WordPress URL as we have previously mentioned, is via your wp-config.php file. It is important to note that values in wp-config.php override the settings in method one.

3. Change WordPress Site URL Via phpMyAdmin

  1. Log into the cPanel account for the domain in question.
  2. Click on the “phpMyAdmin” icon within the “Databases” section.
  3. Expand the database associated with the WordPress installation and select the “wp_options” table.
  4. Search for “siteurl” within the “option_name” column and click the “Edit” link on the same row.

So now that you have completed all the necessary changes and updated everything with your site, this should be the time to check for broken links.

I usually use broken-links-finder from SeoPrimeTools.com.

Why having broken web links is so bad and why you should fix it?

Dead hyperlinks on websites are not just annoying, their existence may cause some real damage to your online business as well as to your reputation in the Internet!

Because of that same situation, a web-site owner may:

  • Lose some of the existing customer base (current users may sooner or later get frustrated enough to never come back);
  • Get problems with potential clients (because of the dead web links people simply won’t be finding things/pages they are looking for);
  • Damage your site reputation (most of online customers consider stale hyperlinks as demonstration of no respect to them from the site’s owners);
  • Have negative impact on your website’s ratings with major Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing etc…

As you can see, broken links can be problematic for website visitors, making them unable to access the desired resource or information. These users may decide to make use of another site to find the necessary information elsewhere. A site that hasn’t been updated or checked for a long time may suffer from link rot, which is a term used to describe a site with dozens of broken links.

Suggestion

Make sure to check your site regularly using SEO Tools like Broken Links Finder provided FREE of charge from SeoPrimeTools.com.

With the Broken Links Finder, you can check your site and correct 404 error pages you may have without realizing that you had one.

A web-based SSH functionality enabled on our web hosting platform

SSH is a network protocol, which allows technically experienced users to communicate with a server directly.

It gives web hosting customers direct access to the server, so they could manage their resources more effectively.

Thanks to the newly-introduced, web-based SSH functionality, users on our platform can now access a server via their browser instead of having to use a regular SSH client.

Learn more about the benefits of using web-based SSH from our post.

What is SSH about?

As a network protocol, SSH allows a secure connection to be established between computers.

This is most often done via an SSH client, which allows a user to connect to another computer’s SSH server and remotely run commands on that computer.

A user can run an SSH client on any computer and connect to any computer they are authorized to access via the SSH protocol.

With regard to web hosting, SSH would allow users to access their projects on the server and apply various actions to them directly.

For example, a user could list files on the server where their projects are located using simple SSH commands:

What is web-based SSH about?

As its name suggests, web SSH allows users to bypass the regular SSH client and connect to a server using their preferred web browser.

The communication between the browser and the SSH server is done via an intermediary web application server.

All messages to and from the server are transmitted with the help of JavaScript and dynamic HTML and displayed in the user’s web browser.

Here are the main advantages of web-based SSH in a nutshell:

  • Ease of access: No need to download or install any software. Users can access SSH servers through a web browser from anywhere, as long as they have access to their Control Panel.
  • Anonymity: Since SSH access is tunneled through an intermediary web application server, the SSH server will not be aware of the actual client’s IP address.
  • Audit ability: The communication between the browser and the SSH server via the web application server can easily be logged just like with common SSH. This prevents a malicious client from deleting a user’s activity logs.

How does web-based SSH work on our platform?

The web-based SSH option has been easily integrated into the Web Hosting Control Panel.

Users can access it from the Web SSH icon in the header area of the dashboard (it is right next to the Help Centre icon).

Here is how our implementation of web-based SSH works:

When a user clicks on the Web SSH icon, a connection with the SSH server will be initiated automatically via a background script.

This way, the user will not need to enter any login details like if they were using a regular SSH client.

What the user will see is a fast and responsive terminal interface directly in the browser, which is actually just HTML code.

When the user enters any command in the browser and presses the enter key, the same script that is responsible for the secure connection to the server will take the command inputs and pass them over to the server.

From there on, the server will accept the commands, execute them and return the results.

Our script will capture the results and it will output back to the same terminal-like interface.

The user can use the web-based SSH terminal while browsing in the Control Panel or select to view it in full.

This will hide the rest of the control panel but will not cover the rest of the browser window.

Once the user has finished working with the web-based SSH terminal, they can close it by clicking on the “X” icon in the upper right corner.

If they want to keep a log file of their session, they can easily do so by clicking on the Start Log icon in the lower left corner of the browser.

When finished, they can simply download the log file to their device by clicking on the Download Log option.

NOTE: The web-based SSH functionality is freely available for all web hosting plans, which have SSH included as a feature or available to purchase as an upgrade.

Web SSH combines the server access capabilities of the SSH protocol with the ease of use and flexibility of the web browser.

It is a great feature that could easily be used from any device and location and adds to the tech-savvy appeal of the Web Hosting Control Panel.
