March 19th 2009, Microsoft released IE8 to the general public and made it available for Windows updates. The good news with this version of IE is it includes improved standards support. However for many of you who’s websites were designed with frontpage, word, or powerpoint, you may find that your website no longer displays correctly.

When running a shared hosting environment, it is impossible to stay competitive without the use of some form of control panel. And in the world of linux shared web hosting, no control panel is as widely used as cPanel Inc‘s cPanel/WHM combo.

Throughout the years, I have gathered a list of sites I have tried and tested for valuable content and who I turn to for relevant references.
