How to always use Google.com instead of the annoying country specific Google website

By: Hossein Jalali • April 15, 2015

Tip: If you don't want google.[country-code] (in my case google.ae) to show up as default on your browser every time you search and prefer google.com, all you need to do is go to a specific URL and that is it.

The Iranian new year is just around the corner and my life will be changing forever soon ...

By: Hossein Jalali • March 19, 2015

It's been a few months since I last wrote and while there is so much to write about I just could not wrap my mind around everything that is happening. Today I decided to review the year that passed, review all the good and bad.

In just 6 days I will become a fatherو this alone has been hard to grasp. It's just surreal in a way where my brain is unable to analyse the depth of it. Everyone says your perspective on life will change your goals, your values and I am sitting there and trying to understand how? Every time I think about Wednesday 25th of March, 9 am my heart sinks, the doctor said the whole process takes only 4-7 minutes until the baby will reveal itself! *shivers* ... I am blessed to have this opportunity, to become a father to another living creature (Leo aside of course LOL), and even more blessed to do it with the woman I love and grew up with, not everyone gets such a chance and those who do I assume take it lightly.

Google has flattered me today

By: Hossein Jalali • January 6, 2015

So I have been trying long and hard to be the first person showing up when someone searches "Hossein Jalali" however there is another guy with the same name who seems to be much older than me and works in Real Estate that always wins. This has always been a struggle that I wish to overcome.

Today I tried another phrase "Hawanese Dog" and yes I know it is spelt Havanese but I just needed to see.

Results came in ...

An update and a nice trick for those who use TinyMCE for App CMS

By: Hossein Jalali • September 29, 2014

A lot has happened since my last post. I have now become a consultant to Al Aan TV and passed on the torch of "Head of Online" to others. This was a necessary move in order for me to dedicate my time and efforts in expanding Edoramedia. However it was also embraced with an unbelievably admirable action from my GM in Al Aan whom I will always be grateful for.

How to migrate files and emails from one web server to another

By: Hossein Jalali • April 16, 2014

A client of mine was having a lot of trouble with his shared hosting and finally made the decision that enough was enough. Below I will write down the whole process of transfering from an unknown hosting to Godaddy.

I will be using www.example.com (with IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) as the name of his website (domain) and info@example.com as the email address that needs to move, replace it with yours.

The challenges that we faced were:

  • Moving 5 years worth of email from one webmail to another considering 
  • Transfering over 2.5GB from one server to another

Step 1: Setup Hosting

This is the step where you decide to move away and select an appropriate hosting for your website. We will use Godaddy as a default since many of the hosting processes are common amongst the top providers and also it is the most recognized one.
Godaddy offers a free domain with your hosting, use it as you wish.

  • Once the hosting is ready setup your cpanel account
  • Go to Domains > "add on domains" and add www.example.com as an addon (this will allow you to be prepared once you wish to redirect your domain to this server). Basically this prepares the hosting to accept the domain call
  • Lets say IP address is yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
