How To Download Files Faster Even From Bad Servers 

We all use internet to download a lot of files in a daily basis. There are some files that have very bad servers and downloading them can be a hideous task. Download managers could speed up downloads upto an extent only. In this tutorial, I am going to demonstrate an easy way to take over the situation.

  • Install Puffin
    Puffin is a web browser with very nice features. It supports flash and fast browsing. We need this browser to continue with the tutorial. You can get Puffin from here.
  •  Transfer to Drive
    Puffin supports downloading to Google Drive. We are going to use this feature. We need to go to download page of the file. When we click download, we will be shown with a dialogue with options ‘This device‘ ‘Google Drive‘ and ‘cancel‘. Choose ‘Google Drive‘. 
  •  Configure Google
    Connect your Google account to Puffin. It will then start transferring the file to Google Drive.
  • Download from Google Drive
    go here and open ‘Puffin’ folder and you’ll see your file there. Download your file from here. Since it is from Google servers, it will download faster.

Enjoy!

How to host a website for FREE

The first step to build a website is to own a domain name. I hope everyone knows what a domain is. If you don’t know what a domain is, then here is the definition according to google

a distinct subset of the Internet with addresses sharing a common suffix or under the control of a particular organization or individual.

To own a .com, .net, .co, etc. domains, you need to pay. But don’t worry. I have the right solution for you. You can get subdomains for free. A subdomain is a subdivision of a domain. To acquire a free subdomain, go here and register for FREE.

Now that you have registered a domain, the next step is to host a website. The meaning of website hosting is a follows

Web Hosting is the service providing space on the Internet for websites. When you make a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

Unlike domains, there are free and paid webhosting(excluding subdomains). I will suggest to you the most trusted free webhosting service.000webhost is the right option for free webhosting. It gives you 1500 MB of Disk Space, 100 GB Bandwidth,  cPanel Powered Hosting (you will love it), over 500 website templates ready to download,  easy to use website builder, free POP3 Email Box with Webmail access, FTP and Web based File Manager, PHP, MySQL, Perl, CGI, Ruby,  and many more….

  1. After visiting this link, click “Sign Up”
  2. Next choose “I want to host my own domain (domain must be registered already)”
  3. Now, we need to fill out the information with name, our email id and a new password for the account.
  4. Click “I agree to Terms Of Service” and “I’m not a robot” boxes. The captcha is to prevent spamming of accounts with bots.
  5. Create your account by clicking “Create My Account”
  6. Now you will receive a confirmation link to email address. It may take sometime(up to 2 minutes, it depends)
