just a heads up, that domain doesnt resolve for me
by Guru (27.3k points)
yeah, i have no clue as to why its like that, so embarrassing, oz i have some nice articles there that i asked my friends to peruse and now most of my them are complaining that they cant access the site whilst on mobile, on pc it does  open like 90% of the time, but on mobile there are serious challenges, am not sure what causes this and i have since filed a ticked with my webhost...thanx for the heads up.

apparently its zispa, they didnt point my DNS correctly and i have to wait till monday according to my domain handler.
by Guru (57.6k points)
well no your main site is working fine, so its not zispa's issue, its your hosts
by Guru (57.6k points)
specifically your nameservers are showing as mansheb.net but are returning NS records that point to siteground so theres incorrect setup at the DNS level as well not just zispa

i have to ask the serious question of what specific features you will give users to make registering useful or worthwhile to them

commenting doesn't require registration, and neither does subscribing to the feed

in fact having registration allowed reduces your security massively as its another password that can be broken and and another hole that can be punched through your system especially if you have security issues in any of your plugins or wordpress itself (and dont keep them up to date)

rule of thumb should be: only allow registrations if there is a clear purpose for it and keep it to the bare minimum requirements (eg blog writers/editors etc)
