First thing is first, code the website you want to host [using HTML, CSS and JavaScript], or you can download a website template on web, of-course they are mostly free.

Website source files and its related media files

Now logon to GITHUB account, Don’t possess one..? then better grab one right now…

GITHUB login screen

New follow the instruction very carefully:

Create a new repository and name it as “USERNAME.github.io”

For example: my github username is “shivajivarma” so i create a repository with “shivajivarma.github.io

Creating repository

Upload the website files to the repository and commit it.

Files committed to repository

After few minutes you can access your site at “USERNAME.github.io”.

If you want to route your DOMAIN name to hosted site. then open the command promt and ping the hosted site.

“Google apps for business” Vs “Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise”. (Review)


For people how people don’t know what they are….

They are cloud services provided by ‘Google’ and ‘Microsoft’..

1. Where you can create your own ’email service for you domain’ (Firstly you need a domain name Eg: shivajivarma.com)

In Google apps:
Firstly configure you domain setting than create users with your domain mail ids.

Eg: mail@shivajivarma.com, info@shivajivarma.com…………
Google provides all basic services for all users…. Eg: Google drive (Store and edit doc, excel, ppt files etc), groups, Google sites, blogger etc…..

google apps

google apps mail

Insert you own logo to your mail.

google apps mail

In Office 365:

Microsoft also provides similar services in addition it also provides support for Linq (Instant messenger for domain users).

You can control you Exchange server, SharePoint in browser itself no need of installation of applications. You can access Outlook, Microsoft office ( Word, Excel,…) as apps in browser it self.

Easy to control all services:

office 365

Control Exchange server (Mail server):

office 365

Online apps: Outlook, Skydrive, Linq host (serves as server for Linq desktop clients).

Newly added service Sites (similar to google sites) Create and Run your website in couple of clicks.

Sites

2.  Get special apps to make work easy and reduce cost-of-production.

In addition you can buy premium services provided in Google apps Marketplace like… ERP, Accounting tools, Documents controller etc.. and many more Business apps…..

google apps mail - Copy

Office 365 Enterprise also provides templates and Office integrated apps to get work done in better and efficient way.

Office apps

If you ask me which service is better, I say “It doesn’t matter what you use… Google apps or Office 365 (Both are equally good). All it matters is, in the end your work must be complete. 😛 :)”
