WordPress Theme Sites

No clue how to make a design for WordPress, than why not get or buy a premade WordPress theme? Below you’ll find a list of great sites with a ton of WP themes.

Good look on your search for that fantastic WP design.

New gTLD extensions

In case you haven’t heard, this year you can start with pre-registering some of the new gTLDs (Generic top-level domain). At this moment these new, ICANN-approved domain name extensions, include


We’ll be digging into these new domain extensions in posts to come, until then you can go to GoDaddy & register some domains with these new extensions (btw this link will get you 25% off if you’re a new customer)


Worldwide DNS lookup

Found this site that comes in handy if you would like to lookup your dns from locations around the world. This can be very handy when moving sites or server to see if your new IP address has propagated around the internet.

The sites is called Just DNS Lookup & can be found at

Design is minimal and using is very simple: just enter your domain name and hit the “DNS Lookup”-button. Next you’ll be shown your website’s IP from 50+ places around the globe.

Samsung’s Galaxy S IV

Samsung’s Galaxy S IV

Since these days a smartphone has become a true, one might say necessary, webmaster tool doing such tasks as making posts on Facebook, Twitter, …, reading e-mail, checking stats, creating content through for Instagram, Vine, … and much much more. We’ll also from time to time be reporting on mobile phones or should we call them mobile computers, because I for instance don’t really use them as a phone much 🙂

Just read this piece by Shelly Palmer about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV (GT-i9500) Android phone and I think it just made me wanna jump onto the Galaxy bandwagon.

Some hardware specs:

  • 5″ 1080p super amolded display with 411 pixels per inch
  • 13 megapixel back camera
  • 2 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 2 GB of RAM, other version will have 16, 32 or 64 GB
  • microSD slot (up to 64GB)
  • more specifications

It will be powered by the latest Android version called ‘Jelly Bean’ and the coolest new feature is the floating touch display: gesture-based control, allowing the user to perform several tasks on the phone without touching the screen, so by making simple hand gestures in the air.

The Galaxy S4 version sold in the United States will contain a 1.9 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T processor and elsewhere it will contain a 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor.

Release date: end of April 2013, can’t wait
No price yet has been announced

Mobile detection & redirection made easy

Several times over the last 2 years I had to look up “how to detect and redirect mobile surfers”, I’ve tried several solutions, but now I found a handy website that creates the mobile redirection code for you, all you have to do is fill in 2 urls and select which script language you want to use:

How it works?

First fill in the url where you want to send your surfers if they’re not on a mobile phone or a tablet

Detect mobile browser step 1

Second step: you fill in the url where you want to send your mobile surfers

Detect mobile browser step 2

Third step: select in which programming language you want the mobile redirection script and the file will start to be downloaded. You have the choice between Apache, ASP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, C#, IIS, JSP, JavaScript, jQuery, Lasso, nginx, node.js, PHP, Perl, Python & Rails

Detect mobile browser step 3

Now just copy the code into your page(s) and your surfers using a mobile browser will be redirected.
