Free Blog Provider

Beberapa hari ini “sedikit” disibukkan dengan pembuatan OGGIX.org. Mmmm… ini merupakan layanan free blogging for anyone, just like wordpress, blogspot, or else. Aku menggunakan engine dan template wordpress, biar cepet jadi.

Hari ini akan aku mulai publikasikan dari website oggix.com dan footer shoutbox nya.

Free Blog Provider oggix.org

Trus apa bedanya dengan wordpress.com ato yang lainnya?

Untuk saat ini sama saja sih, karena tujuannya sekarang untuk beta tester dulu. Tapi kedepannya, aku pingin utak-atik lagi web ini, sehingga mempunyai fitur-fitur yang membedakan dengan free blog yang lainnya. Antara lain, aku ingin mengintegrasikan oggix.org ini dengan oggix.com, sehingga setiap orang yang punya blog, otomatis terinstall shoutbox, atau webcounter, pagerank checker serta social bookmark submitter.

Trus, juga di integrasikan dengan ensiklonesia, ini khusus kl pendaftar dari IP Indonesia, sehingga orang-orang indonesia juga secara otomatis ikut mempromosikan tentang Indonesia nya sendiri. Trus juga, mungkinnn, kl sempet aku integrasikan dengan mailogi (gmail inbox status), so disetiap blog bisa keliatan status dari inbox gmailnya.

Apa lagi yahhh, banyak sigh angan-angan, tapi terealisasi dan enggak nya kita tunggu aja tanggal mainnya.

Oggix.com found a new home

Since about a year ago, oggix.com has a serious problem that need much time to find the solution. The problem is the lack of server resource. Because oggix.com become bigger and bigger (now oggix.com has more than 36.000 members), so oggix.com couldnt placed in a shared hosting, or even a single dedicated server. The site was down for a several times, and the site was very very slow. Thus some of oggix.com’s members became frustation and migrate to another shoutbox provider.

I had moved it to better server, but the result was not significant. Then i also had tried to optimize the scripts, the table structure, the image etc, and also i couldnt get the good result.

Then a few weeks ago i tried to move the site to a new shared hosting, which the hosting company claim that they can handle a very very big site. And amazingly, the site is going well till now. The speed is very good, and the server performance is extremely stabil.

I still dont understand how they set the server and the OS or control panel so they can have these such server performance. hufff.. ├ępoustouflant!!

And you know what? the hosting price is not expensive :D (this is one of the reason why i choose this hosting company).

Oggh, thanks God for giving me this way.

Oggix.com, a shoutbox made in Indonesia

Kemaren, tiba-tiba ada yang nge “ding” aku lewat YM, “mengaku” dari CNET, dengan nama Budi Putra. Dia ingin nanya2 tentang oggixcom dan mo ditulis di rubrik blog nya di CNET.

Usut punya usut, aku search2 digoogle, baca-baca profile tentang dia, ternyata beliau emang beneran kontributor CNET dan wartawan TEMPO. Dan bukan seorang wartawan sembarangan. Guileee, aku sontak tersanjung diwawancarai oleh orang “sebesar” beliau.

Makasih ya Pak Budi atas waktunya, maap cuman “meladeni” seadanya :).

Tulisan beliau tentang OGGIX bisa dibaca di CNET asia, klik disini, atau di blog pak Budi, klik disini.

Berikut tulisannya aku kutip dari cnet:

Oggix.com, a shoutbox made in Indonesia

Do you want to leave a quick message on the Weblog without any form of login or user registration? Use a useful and colorful feature like shoutbox.

A shoutbox, saybox, tagboard or chatterbox is a chat-like feature that allows people to quickly leave instant messages on the Weblog or Web site.

As I browsed anywhere, one of the popular shoutbox service providers is Oggix.com. Frankly, I was surprised that it was actually created by a young Indonesian!
