Top Tips to Improve Your Website’s Security and Keep It Safe From Hackers

Top Tips to Improve Your Website’s Security and Keep It Safe From Hackers

The well-knownsaying “for want of a nail” also applies to the topic of websites security. After all, when it comes to protecting your website, small things canoften make a huge difference. With the recent spike of cyber-attacks all website owners should take these into consideration, as even the smallest of sites can become a target - hijacked, defaced or injected with malware during the next mass scale campaign.

With this in mind, here is a list of things that will help you keep your website safe from hackers.

1. Using Strong Passwords

A couple or so years ago, researchers from the University of Cambridge came up with the finding that week implementation of password-based authentication and poor password practices are the main reasons why websites get attacked. It is indeed amazing that people use passwords which are easy to guess. Examples of these passwords are:
  • Using numbers in serial order
  • Keeping the name of the individual as the password
  • Obvious passwords such as “bankaccount” for an online banking account
There is no doubt whatsoever that a strong password is the first line of defense against hacker. Therefore, you must choose hard to guess passwords and more importantly, you must also change these passwords regularly. It is also good to use TwoFactor Authentication (2FA) that will help you deflect unwanted visitors.
2. Using SSL is a Good Idea

SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is a security protocol that goes a long way in helping a website handle private information. SSL is based on a cryptographic system that works on using a private key and a public key.

SSL is probably the best way in which it client and a server can create a secure connection between themselves. This secure connection enables the transmission of data safely. Another protocol that is in wide use is something known as Secure HTTP or S-HTTP. Depending on the scale of operations, you should consider going in for paid security certificate. 

3. Using Web Application Firewall

One of the most effective ways in which you can secure your website is to go in for an industry leading solution as far as WAFs or Web Application Firewalls are concerned. One of the ways in which hackers target websites is with the use of malicious bots - automated visitors who can crawl through thousands of sites at a time, detecting and exploiting existing vulnerabilities. 

With effective web application firewalls, your website will be able to protect itself from these malicious bots while also securing yourself against targeted code-based attacks (SQLI, XSS, etc). Probably the best name in this space is Incapsula, a website security firm that provides this technology for affordable mid-market prices. 

What makes Incapsula solution stand out (besides its pricing) is the fact that it brings together CDN and WAF. This makes it possible for a website to enjoy even more robust PCI certified security from hackers and spammers, while also benefiting from CDN related improvement to site’s load speeds. Because it’s all cloud-based, activating thisWeb Application Firewall is rather easily, requiring no prior knowledge and only few minutes of you time. 

4. Using Secured FTP Access

FTP or File Transfer Protocol is a standard network protocol. This is created on a client server architecture. Such a protocol helps to transfer files between hosts in a secure manner. The usage of FTP can go a long way in securing your website from hackers. Some of the ways in which you can deploy FTP include:
  • Regulating access to your FTP directory
  • Enabling disk quotas 
  • Auditing account logon events
5. Updating Your Software

One of the easiest and yet often overlooked aspect of website security is keeping your software updated. This is critical for your security software as well as for you CMS (Word Press, Joomla, etc) and your various plugins. 

All operating systems and web applications have vulnerabilities. However, manufacturers constantly work to create software patches and these are available only in new versions. Therefore, you must go in for updated software. You can choose to do it automatically or schedule an update for particular periods of time. Experts advise that your firewall, anti spyware and anti virus software be set to automatic updating. 

6. Backup Your Data

Data security is a big deal for every business organization. Regardless of the kind of method you use, backing up your data is an extremely critical aspect of your online presence. There are plenty of companies that offer up-to-date and cutting-edge technology when it comes to taking backups of your data. You can always go in for a combination of computer-based or online backup of your data. Given the rise of technologies such as cloud computing, synchronizing your important files and storing them in the cloud is easily done. 

7. Input Sanitization To Keep Your Website Safe

Hackers often exploit code-based vulnerabilities in order to gain access to websites. Perhaps one of the biggest such vulnerability is in adequate input sanitization. But, when you have robust input validation or sanitization processes in place, you can prevent code injections such as XSS (or Cross Site Scripting), RFI or remote file inclusion, the very common SQL injectionsand more.

8. It is Necessary To Restrict File Uploads

Some websites need to allow file uploads by users. However, it can be exploited by hackers. Therefore, in order to prevent your website from falling prey to hackers, it is extremely necessary for you to restrict file uploads. Some of the ways in which you can implement secure file uploading processes are:
  • Setting a maximum limit as far as file size and file numbers is concerned,
  • Exercising massive control over permissions, especially the ‘execute permissions’ as far as your web server is concerned
  • Storing file uploads in a directory which is outside of your document root.
9. Correct Validation To Do Away With Bad Traffic

Even in physical establishments, validation processes by way of passcodes, biometric sensors or even passwords that are exchanged between individuals becomes simple and yet strong ways to enhance security. Similarly, your website security can be greatly enhanced by going in for the right kind of security validation processes. It is also vital that the validation process be done from both the server and the browser’s points of view. 

10. Paying Attention To Error Messages

Hackers will use every possible aspect of a website in order to gain ingress. Error messages are capable of giving a lot of information to a hacker. This may come as a surprise but stating that the password is wrong, gives a hacker the clue that the user name is correct and now he simply has to check out possible combinations and hit upon the right password. Therefore, keeping your error message generic is a very good idea. Something like “invalid credentials” is a far better idea than telling a hacker that either the password or the user name is invalid.

How to Save Money With A Pre-Paid Phone

Save Money With A Pre Paid Phone

Nearing your phone contract’s end and bamboozled with all the offers carrier companies have thrown at you to lure you into switching association? Moreover, are you also considering choosing a prepaid plan to budget your monthly bills? Its true pre paid plans have not had a very good reputation in the past, but they have come of age with progressive times. Now should be a good time to go in for a pre paid option if post paid bills have started to damage your monthly numbers. With giants like Target investing in the pre paid sector, you can foresee escalated quality of services.

Tips to Save Money using Pre-paid Plans:

Plans for Calling within a Family Network

If you are a parent, you would have probably realised by now, that handing them a postpaid plan might just be a very bad idea. Teenagers are probably the heaviest users of every service that carriers roll out. How would you cover their bills on a postpaid plan? The good part about selecting a pre paid setup for your family is that you do not have to sign a contract with the service provider if the use is going to be only within the family.

If you do not use the phone at all for a given length of time, you do not have to pay anything for the period. It is possible to limit yourself to 60 minutes of recharge. Some phones come with a double offer. As long as you keep using the phone, you are entitled to double the time that you have been provided originally. You need to spend only 10 cents per minute in some plans. 

Corporate Business Plans

Businesses need an elaborate plan in place in order to accommodate their lengthy discussions through phones. A phone with a data plan is the most desirable in such cases. The choices are many and so confusing. Unlimited data storage can be had for $50 a month. Popular phone companies always come out with some attractive schemes wherein extra talk time is offered for the same amount. Or, they may slash the amount for an existing plan with more number of minutes of talk.
Service Network Coverage Maps

Prepaid service providers have a map of their coverage. You must check the signal strength of each of these companies and choose the best. This way, you do not have to make repeat calls in case your call has not gone through and a charge has been applied for the call nevertheless. Repeat call will cost money again, please remember!

Is it really Beneficial to Switch to a Prepaid Connection?

If you’ve been in the dilemma and haven’t found an answer yourself, analyse the expenses you’ve been making on your post paid plan and how important is it for you to cut corners from your phone expenses. Do you get a loud and clear answer that says IT IS MUCH NEEDED?

Yeah well then, pre-paid upfront costs might pinch a little to start with, but it all makes sense once you see a good dip in your monthly spendings. And in case you don’t see any stark saving and prefer your old setup, you are always free to switch back; you won’t have to bear any penalty. Selling off the previous carrier’s handset would level the difference anyway.

Also, if you’re still of the notion that prepaid experiences only bring about tonnes of frustration, T Mobile’s much famous a-class service combined with the extremely bold step of going no-contract for the pre paid plans can be a potential answer. WIth very lucrative offers on display coming off the carrier’s shelf, the company can completely revolutionize the prepaid sector if they manage to pull it off well.

Going With Multiple Monitors? Here’s the Gear You Will Need For Your Trading Computer

If you’re planning on buying a trading computer with multiple monitors, you’re going to need to make sure you have a few things…

So you’ve realized that you need multiple monitors for your trading computer but aren’t really sure what you need in order to actually make that happen. No problem. There is obviously some additional gear that you will need in order to have a multi-monitor setup, but as long as you have the right configuration it’s possible to have four, six, or even eight monitors to glue your eyeballs to. 
Going With Multiple Monitors? Here’s the Gear You Will Need For Your Trading Computer
The first thing you need to do is settle on just how many monitors you want. This is huge since it’s a lot easier to buy everything all at once than it is to say, create a setup for three monitors and realize that you’d rather have six. Going back and upgrading an existing setup is, as you probably figured, more difficult. Consider how many open windows you usually have at one time and determine just how much screen real estate it would take up if you each window was visible. Once you have figured that out, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty.

Here is a rundown of what you will need (aside from the monitors themselves).

Multi-Monitor Supported Graphics Cards

Popular among hard core gamers and animators alike, graphics cards are what do the heavy lifting when it comes to your computers video. The two biggest names in this arena are Nvidia and AMD and they both make it a habit of coming up with new, more powerful cards on a regular basis. In fact, if you get a top of the line card from either company, chances are good that within six months there will be another, more powerful card to replace it. When it comes to your trading computers’ multiple monitor setup, you don’t really need the most powerful card out there. A good middle-of-the-road card can easily handle the workload.

It’s important to know that no matter which card you choose, you need to be sure that it is designed for multiple monitors. While many, if not most, cards have this capability, they don’t all scale well, so be careful when selecting your card. Many cards are designed to handle an extra two to three monitors, meaning that if you want more monitors you’ll need more graphics cards. Because of this your trading computer is going to need a few things: a motherboard that has room for multiple graphics cards as well as a power supply that can handle the additional cards. 

Another important thing is your configuration. Make sure that if you are using multiple graphics cards, they are the exact same model and that you are using the same video outputs for each. Trying to mix and match graphics cards or using different outputs can create issues. 

Monitor Stands

So now that you are actually able to put video up on to all of those screens, it’s time to turn your attention to the other major component you will need to have multiple monitors. Your trading computer system will need a monitor stand to hold all of those screens up. 

The stand you pick will be dependent upon how many screens you will have and how big the screens will be. All of your monitors should be the same model so that they can easily fit into the stand and balance the weight evenly. Speaking of weight and stability, if you are thinking of going with an eight screen setup you should use two quad stands instead of just a single eight monitor rig. The two quads are will be much more stable. Once you know how many monitors you basically need just pick the corresponding stand that fits that amount.

Why are China and India Buying so Much Gold?

Learn Why These Two Populous Countries are Investing in Gold...

If you haven't noticed that China and India are both buying more gold, you're not alone. Even though the World Gold Council has reported that both countries may reach 1,000 tons purchased in 2013 by the end of the year, a lot of people in the West haven't noticed or really cared. However, all this gold being bought may have consequences for people all over the world in the short term and the long term.

Why are China and India Buying so Much Gold?

One of the reasons India and China are buying so much gold is cultural. With over half the world's population made up by citizens of these two countries, when national holidays and marriage ceremonies happen toward the end of the year, rural people want gold to give as gifts and to use as a dowry. The government of India is not happy about the increase in gold buying by its citizens and has increased taxes on buying and importing gold on three different occasions, but this hasn't managed to stymie the demand.

Here's a rundown of the other reasons that China and India are gobbling up the world's gold supply.
  • Low Prices - The price of gold has gone down due to a number of different factors, and this is one of the reasons that so many people - especially those in rural areas - have been lining up to buy as much as they can. Why they want the gold may differ from region to region, but many like using it as woman's dowry or for religious offerings.
  • Economic Slowdown - At least in China where the economy has been slowing for nine out of the last ten quarters, some people see gold as a solid investment during uncertain economic times. The same holds true in India where people believe gold is a strong, long term investment.
Whatever the reason, there's no disputing the fact that China and India have been buying tons of the world's gold in 2013 - at record levels. All of this activity has had an effect on the value of gold in the world market, of course. And this is what has some people concerned. The good news is that as gold lowers in price for a bit, it becomes an even smarter investment.

Unlike paper money or some other types of assets, there's a historic precedence that says gold will eventually increase in price again. From the late 1930s to 1971 the value of gold didn't move very much, but after the U.S. stopped backing their currency with gold, the price shot up and kept going. No one knows for certain where the value of gold will be from one day to another, but given the popularity in two of the most populous countries in the world, there's a good chance it's going to increase over time.

MDM: The Wave of the Future for Businesses

The business world’s adoption of mobile technology is what Forbes calls unprecedented. By 2015, they estimate there will be 7.4 billion wireless devices out there. This creates an interesting conundrum for companies looking to utilize employee-owned equipment to create a digital workplace. How do they go about synchronizing devices safely to get everyone on the same page?

Mobile device management allows businesses to create and manage a network regardless of the user-side device. The goal is to establish company connectivity that is both productive and cost-effective.

MDM: The Wave of the Future for Businesses

How MDM Works

The typical mobile device management system utilizes a server to send out commands. Mobile devices contain a client-side element that receives and implements these commands based on the operating system of the mobile device. Each device goes through a network enrollment process, according to Microsoft. The core software platform detects the device in the network and sends out settings to keep them connected.

Bring Your Own Device?

When you look at the base concept behind MDM, the challenges seem overwhelming. With smartphones, tablets and laptops, how can a system create a cohesive platform that allows network users to choose the tool they want, and secure it enough for the transmission and storage of sensitive data?

The functioning of a mobile device management system is reliant on the platform, not the specific device. That is why the software works with many different formats. Not all mobile products are MDM compatible either, but as the popularity of BYOD grows, modern smartphones and tablets are including this feature. Operating systems like iOS have a MDM framework built-in to allow for seamless communication with third-party vendors, according to Apple.

Security is a concern no matter what network a business uses. The steps to protect data are the same with MDM as they are with most multiuser platforms. Companies require employees to create unique passwords. The network administrator has access to the device should it go missing and can remove any sensitive information. This works in favor of the user, as well, because removal wipes all information from the device, protecting personal data.

Privacy is the biggest issue that comes up with employees. MDM systems work on device location – 24/7, so an employer always knows where that person is whether working or not. Designers are looking to improve options and allow locating to turn off when the employee is off duty.

Why MDM is the Way of the Future

Versatility makes this option appealing for businesses. Blackberry's MDM functionality is described as one platform capable of managing both corporate-owned and BYOD devices together, for example.

Ultimately, cost-efficiency pulls companies in this direction. The BYOD approach has the potential to save a lot of money for corporations that don’t have to supply employees with mobile devices. Between loss management and equipment upgrades, the implementation of MDM is a cost-saving tool that requires just the initial system investment.

Currently, 74 percent of companies allow some type of BYOD practice, explains Forbes. That means the business world is already in the game. With a little tweaking to improve employee privacy issues, MDM is looking like the best option for businesses in the future.

Day Trading Computer: Should You Go With a Desktop or a Laptop?

Day Trading Computer: Should You Go With a Desktop or a Laptop?

When it comes time to buy a new computer, the first question that most people ask is whether to get a desktop or laptop. Typically when they are trying to decide between the two, they ask themselves questions like: do I want to work on the road or will I almost always work at my desk? If you are looking for a day trading computer, there are going to be a number of other questions that you need to ask. A trading PC is a very different animal from a regular computer with its own set of considerations. So what is better for day traders: desktop or laptop? Well, the short answer is desktops and here’s why:

Desktops let you work faster. Laptops are limited to a single, small screen, which means that you almost always end up taking more time going through tabs to find some specific application or webpage that you need. This translates to more keystrokes and more wasted time. With a desktop you can have multiple screens to show all of your data, which lets you work faster and be more productive.

You get more power with a desktop. In a laptop, everything is built in miniature. This tends to result in less powerful machines that can’t keep up with the heavy demands of day trading. A desktop has the power (both literally and figuratively) to handle a trader’s workload. This comes down to more superior CPUs, beefier graphics cards, and a power source that can handle all of these things

Desktops are upgradable. Unless every single computer manufacturer suddenly decides that this technology thing is a big fad and start making soap instead, there is a good chance that the brand new, top of the line trading PC you buy is going to be outdated in a year or two. With a desktop this isn’t really a problem, since you can simply upgrade it by adding more RAM, replacing the CPU, or swapping the graphics cards. You can’t really do this with a laptop which makes it a much less flexible day trading computer.

Laptops as a Backup PC

The biggest advantage to using a laptop as your day trading computer is that it has its own battery. Even if you have it plugged into the wall and the power goes out or your toddler thinks it’d be fun to pull the plug, you don’t have to worry, because the laptops internal battery will seamlessly kick in and you can keep working. That is why a laptop makes a pretty decent backup trading computer. If your desktop is down and your laptop is charged and has a 3G or 4G connection, you can keep trading until your desktop is back in action. It won’t be ideal, but it works in a pinch.

Long Tailed vs Short Tailed Keywords: Comparison Of Their Efficiency

First let’s define efficiency, because a keyword can efficiently draw in traffic and it can efficiently draw in sales. The first thing that people want is traffic, but untargeted traffic is no good to anyone. Untargeted traffic means that any sales happen due to luck more than marketing. Here you will find out how some keywords may efficiently draw in more traffic, and how keywords may efficiently draw in sales (targeted traffic).
Long Tailed vs Short Tailed Keywords: Comparison Of Their Efficiency

Your two keyword categories

There are keywords that are made up of one or two words, and keywords that are made up of more (also referred to as key-phrases). A short keyword may be something such as “homes” and a long tailed keyword may be something such as “homes for sale”. As you can imagine, the term “home” is going to be used lot more times in search engines than “homes for sale.”

This leads some people into believing that the keyword “home” is better than “homes for sale.” But, with the keyword “home” you are going to attract traffic from people looking for a home for their cat to people looking for an old age home. It is going to draw in a lot of traffic, but most of it is going to be useless to you if you are trying to sell homes. If you use the long-tailed keyword “homes for sale,” then you are going to get less traffic but it will be more targeted.

You have to consider what people are searching for

Look into what your target consumer is actually typing into the search engines. They may be typing in the word “home”, but are they also typing in the words “cheap”, “affordable”, “new”, “Boston”, “Chicago”? And, could any of these words be mixed into your keyword profile as long-tailed keywords?

Short-tailed keywords have more competition

A lot of people are going to be using the same short-tailed keywords as you, and a lot of them are going to be running websites that are unrelated to yours. You may get more traffic with short-tailed keywords, but it really depends upon how much competition you have on the whole. If there is a massive amount of competition for your short-tailed keyword then it is going to be a lot harder to rank highly on the search engine results page.

Think about how people use search engines

Comparing long and short-tailed keywords is unfair, as in the grand scheme of things it is always the shorter keywords that are going to win. They get the most traffic and are the easiest to optimize your website for. But, think about how and why people are using the search engines.

People use them to research your products and your services. In this case it is good to have short tailed keywords because their searches will probably not be very focused. But, once they have decided what they want then they are going to want to compare products and services. This is where long-tailed keywords that include phrases such as “cheapest”, “fastest”, “best”, etc, are going to help you out a lot.

When the purchaser is ready to buy then you should consider a mix of short and long-tailed keywords. They may know the exact product that they want, which will mean keywords involving the name of the actual product/service are going to be the most useful. These may be written as short and long-tailed keywords, and both will be equally effective.

People check for reviews

Some of your potential customers are going to search out reviews of your products to see how good they are. It is a form of online research and is where long-tailed keywords are going to help you. If you create long-tailed keywords that match (or are similar to) the search terms your potential customers use, then you can get them to read your reviews or simply find your product pages where they may decide to purchase your products/services instead of your competitors.

Your competitors may have won the search engine race in the first instance, but using this method you may be able to snatch the sale right from under them.

In conclusion

You need to use both long-tailed and short-tailed keywords when creating your website keyword profile. You should use more short-tailed keywords are they are going to attract more people during their initial searches. You can use long-tailed keywords to attract people who know what they want, who are doing focused research, or who are looking for reviews of your products.

What is Google Authorship and Why Should You Use it

The Google Authorship Markup may have been available since June 2011, but it is only recently that webmasters and prolific writers have become aware of its numerous benefits. Considering the way that the SEO landscape has evolved, it seems only natural for Google’s adolescent social media platform to implement such an ingenious feature. Penguin 2.0 may not have caused earthquakes in the internet world, but this is also because more and more webmasters have become aware of the importance of ethical search engine optimization strategies.

What is Google Authorship and Why Should You Use it

While it may be true that certain pages plummeted in the rankings, the overall conclusion after the release of Google’s latest penguin update was that social signals will soon become the backbone for future SEO practices. Networks like Facebook, Twitter or Google will become a determining factor in every online campaign, but it seems that Google+ should be treated more carefully because it benefits from the authorship markup. Out of all the Authorship Rank conversations, the one related to markup is without a doubt the most complicated one.

Four Reasons to Adopt the Authorship Markup

If you are a content writer for a SEO firm you are probably already familiar with the daily 500-word-article requests, but somehow you can’t feel satisfied even if you are doing something you like. Google knows that there are a lot of talented writers out there who haven’t been given proper credit, and this response to this virtual “abuse”, was the creation of the Author Rank algorithm parameter. But except the brilliant fact that you will be able to kiss obscurity goodbye, what are the reasons to become interested in the Author Rank algorithm and the Google Authorship markup? Here are a few reasons:

1. You will be able to avoid duplicate content and copycats. We all know how content seems to be copied one way or the other. This usually happens because certain “writers” are too lazy to write their own articles, and they rely on the fact that the internet is oh-so-vast. Sadly, Google will quickly pick up on duplicated/copied/spun content, and punish you, regardless of your status. The only way to truly protect your work is by adding the authorship markup to it. This will tell Google that you are the first person who posted it online, and probably also the creator.

2. You will gain online authority. As mentioned earlier, the authorship markup will help you increase your online presence and credibility. Nevertheless, this means that you should stick to two, maximum three niches that are related, or else you risk being perceived in a negative way. According to Google, authors which are prolific on a certain niche (who also receive positive social signals), will be rewarded with a sweet spot on SERPs.

3. Your Content is More Likely to be Clicked. Statistically speaking, articles that re accompanied by a small mug-shot on search engines are more likely to receive clicks. This is probably because on a psychological level, readers feel more confident to click an article that also has the photo of the author.

4. Outclass your competitors. We are not yet sure how the Google Authorship Markup will impact the SEO world in the future, but it is actually predicted that it will become very important in the near future. Considering that social signals have already become an essential part of every SEO campaign, it this should not come as a surprise. This is why it is important to invest in Google+ and Google Authorship, because it will help you surpass your competition and gain an important head start.

Great Business Phone Do’s and Don’ts: A Buyers Guide

Great Business Phone Do’s and Don’ts: A Buyers Guide

It’s a fact that those who shop for phones for business purposes will have to care about different things than those who are interested more in personal use. Things like apps, battery life screen size, features, and everything else will take on a new meaning when you’re shopping for your first business phone. Here’s some advice to help get you started.

Battery Life

The very last thing you need when you’re on an important business call is for your phone to die. This tends to be the Achilles heel for a lot of smartphones. All of that power tends to come at a price, after all. You definitely want to stay away from some of the phones like some of the earlier Droid phones that tend to eat up battery life like crazy and then die in a few hours. Phones like the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G that are known for having a good solid battery life can help a lot. Another good thing to look for is phones that have removable batteries. This way, you can charge up a few batteries at a time and then switch out dead batteries for fresh one as you go throughout the day. You can get pretty much as much time as you want on the phone this way, and you’ll be sure not to miss any important business calls!


When it comes to smartphones, especially those that are geared for business, it’s all about the apps. It’s important to choose phones that can handle the apps you need. For example, if you do a lot of driving around and find that Google Maps is the best way to go from point A to point B, you’ll want to go with a phone that has that app. Believe it or not, it’s not universal anymore. Apple has decided to move away from Google Maps on their iPhone line, for example. Not all apps will be available on all phones. Some apps are only available for Apple products, an example being the voice app Siri. Some people swear by Siri for finding out stuff they need to know for their business quickly, for example.

Hardware Functionality

Some phones just have physical qualities that others lack. If you need your phone to be very rugged in order to handle the rigors of your business, for example, going with phones like the HTC One that has the light but rugged aluminum case might be a very good idea. If you need to do video conferencing on the go through your phone and for your business, having a big enough screen is also pretty important. The One tends to be good for screen size and quick, clear performance in terms of live video as well.


Obviously cost is a huge concern when you’re choosing a phone for business. While there are some free phone service options out there, they very well may not be for everyone and there tend to be some restrictions on them in terms of who qualifies. It’s important to make sure that the service you’re signing up for in a new phone meets what you need in terms of minutes and cost. You hardly want to end up being one of those people who doesn’t read the service agreement properly and racks up thousands of dollars in phone bill debt by accident.
