Move database from ipage to bluehost

Today I have to move wordpress blog from ipad web host to bluehost. Everything work well except one thing :


Database error and after examine error message I found a way to overcome that problem.

1. Open sql  from ipage exported file (created by phpmyadmin)

2. Open with editor (notepad or wordpad) and look for these lines :

— Database: `101_xmas`

 CREATE DATABASE `101_xmas` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci;
 USE `101_xmas`;

Yes, italic things I set must be ignored by bluehost and to accomplish that thing you can add — in front of the lines.

save the file and reupload through phpmyadmin.

This time I see :

Import has been successfully finished, 30758 queries executed. (

Good, I can continue to other work 🙂

How to add TXT Record on BlueHost for Activate Google Apps

In recent domain purchase on Godaddy I have disable automatic domain renewal (goes to manual and force Godaddy to send an email about expire domain) and change dns record to bluehost.

Due to that change I force myself to choose 1st option of activate google apps.

I’ll show you how to add TXT Record on bluehost hosting for activate google apps.

1. Sign up for google apps

2. Activate google apps for domain

google apps provide 4 ways :

  1. Add a DNS record to your domain’s configuration
  2. Add a meta tag to your site’s home page
  3. Upload an HTML file to your server
  4. Link to your google analytics account

I choose number 1.

Add a DNS record to bluehost domain’s configuration

Choose other from ‘select your domain registrar or provider’ option.

copy and paste TXT record to notepad

Login to bluehost cpanel

Find ‘advanced dns zone editor’ .

click the icon

Select a domain

Add a record

  • change ‘google’  (from the picture) to (xxx is your domain extension)
  • Let TTL as is
  • Choose TXT  Type
  • Paste TXT record that you have from google

click  ‘Add record‘ button.

You’ll see summary of your domain dns configuration.

Click “Delete” for existing TXT record (optional)

3. Verify domain ownership

Back to google apps page. Click Verify button to start verify the TXT record modification.

You’ll see this page if you do right job.

You can continue to activate email service and others from your google apps panel.

See you on other post and stay health!

CPU Throttle and Cache

Almost 20 host successfully move to bluehost while I left others in other web hosting for internet marketing purpose.

I just wnt to say that I’m impressed with cpu throttle technology that bluehost use in their shared hosting.

As you can see in the picture I got ‘throttle’ every hour but I still can get my site accessed during that period which is cool bro.

I also implement Cache Solution for WordPress that reduce throttle time to almost 30% off.

Kudos to cpu throttle technology and wordpress cache!
