Assalaamu’Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuhu,
We here at Islam in Action are looking to move this website onto an independent platform, for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons will be self-evident to many regular visitors: Google Ads. While we appreciate that the website is popular enough to warrant ads on the site, the ads are not of our our choosing or desire; they are automatically placed by (and for) WordPress on the more traffic-heavy blogs in order to “recoup some of the hosting costs.” This is well and good, but being that the ads are not requested by us, and nor do we have control of the type of ads that are placed here, it is of no surprise that many ads are found to be offensive to many of our readers.
So, our questions:
- Who would you recommend, based on your experiences, for domain registration?
- Which company would you recommend for web site hosting? The company will need to be able to support WordPress, MySQL and PHP.
- We have a couple of domain names in mind, but if you have something that you think we could use, feel free to write it in :)
- Any other advice/ideas/recommendations re: web-site building/design will be deeply appreciated.
JazakumAllah khairun for your assistance and input, and for making this site successful enough for all of us, together, to move on from WordPress. InshaAllah, on the new site, we will be able to implement an expansion in the vision for this humble website of knowledge.
