High-Performance Managed Website Services

With the advent of high-speed internet technology becoming available to a wide range of users. Websites have become an essential tool or platform for businesses to survive and thrive in a global marketplace. Merely having a website does not guarantee the success of your enterprise, so you should start with a small business website builder to see how it will be running because you don’t want to lose your budget at the very beginning. It should also be fine-tuned to quickly and clearly convey the importance of your product or service to any visitors to your website. 

High-Performance Websites

The internet has become a major source of information for most people. Because of this, a great number of businesses have websites announcing their products or services to whoever should find this online address. For a website to be easily found amidst the multitude of online platforms, it should be connected to Managed Website Services that will increase its online traffic. Internet users have become very picky so if your website is not managed very well then it will be relegated to the sidelines of the virtual landscape.

High-performance websites should be elegant and efficient, reflecting an appealing aesthetic while also clearly conveying important information to visitors. They provide customers and clients with a unique experience from the first moment that they connect to the website. Keep in mind that laptops and personal computers are not the only ways to connect to the web anymore, mobile phones and tablets have become the most widespread means of connecting to the internet in the last few years.

One quality that can make or break a website’s online traffic is the speed in which it can load and share information with the user. This means that a high-performance website has speed-focused coding and image optimization integrated into its systems. Many internet users now do not have much patience and want the websites they visit to load very quickly, that is why speed is of the essence.

Website Security

A website must be secure both for the sake of the clients and for the business owner. Sensitive information is necessary for business especially when it comes to account details used for paying online transactions. Passwords and other personal information should be protected. Today, hackers or identity thieves are everywhere, this is the most complicated but must priority first. These kinds of information must be well protected in order to keep visitors to the website safe. If not, customers are not going to trust the website anymore. However, this can translate to a website having encryption on a virtual private server. 

The virtual private server should be backed-up regularly so that information will not be lost. A private server means that the resources of a server are dedicated to the website. It also means that it is protected by a firewall as well as having systems in place to protect the website from brute force attacks or hacking methods of stealing data.

The virtual landscape is not so different from the real one in the sense that dangers and opportunities exist within them. High-performance website management ensures that your online platform is not only well-protected but also much visited. For those who have a website or are thinking of starting one, become aware of high-performance options so that your virtual presence is a strong one.

Pirelli P Zero Named As Best Performance Tire

PIRELLI P ZERO NAMED AS BEST PERFORMANCE TIRE BY EVO MAGAZINE

P Zero set fastest wet and dry lap times but was also judged to be safe and communicative by evo’s experienced testers, who say you can “feel the grip”

The Pirelli P Zero tire has beaten all its leading rivals in an important tire test organized by evo magazine, underlining Pirelli’s hero product as the undisputed world leader when it comes to ultra-high performance.

Evo, whose slogan is ‘the thrill of driving’, was founded in 1998 and is published in several international editions, making it the magazine of choice for performance car enthusiasts worldwide.

During its eagerly awaited summer tire test, evo compared the leading performance tires currently on sale, pitting the P Zero against seven other well-known rivals from established tire manufacturers in a series of probing challenges.

These tests were designed to assess key aspects such as handling, acceleration and braking under a variety of different circumstances, both in the wet and the dry. The test included both objective measurements – with tire performance measured in a controlled environment – as well as subjective assessments, where a variety of experienced evo road testers drove on the tires to evaluate driver feedback and feel how they interacted with the car and surface.

THE FASTEST ON WET AND DRY

The Pirelli P Zero stood out as the overall test winner by a convincing margin. “Scoring no fewer than six top results, the Pirelli was especially impressive in the wet and by far the most impressive tire subjectively,” wrote evo. “It set fastest laps in the wet and the dry and you could feel the grip.”

The evo tire test was carried out with the latest P Zero in 18-inch size, one of the most popular measurements in Pirelli’s performance range – which will also be the diameter that FIA Formula One World Championship adopts with Pirelli from 2021 onwards. Pirelli P Zero sizes start in 18-inch size and go all the way up to 22 inches, equipping some of the most desirable supercars and hypercars in the world.

CHOSEN BY MAGAZINES AND BY PRESTIGE CAR MAKERS

The evo test win backs up another important test win for Pirelli earlier this year, when the P Zero was judged to be the best of 11 summer tires by renowned German publication Auto Bild, which praised its: “excellent performance with no weak points.”

P Zero tires are now chosen by more than 50% of the world’s prestige cars as original equipment, meaning that over half the world’s most desirable cars leave their factories on Pirelli tires. Currently, there are more than 1.100 homologations of P Zero.

Acura TLX GT

– TLX GT wins Open Class, finishes third overall and is the fastest production-based car up Pikes Peak in 2018

– NSX earns Hybrid record, finishing fourth in Time Attack 1 Class

– TLX A-Spec establishes new FWD record in its sophomore year

– Podium finish for 2019 Acura RDX in race debut

Acura once again showcased its performance credentials with a multiple record-setting campaign of the 2018 Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, its seventh consecutive run to the mountain’s 14,115-foot summit. Acura’s “Race to the Clouds” was highlighted by the Acura TLX GT as the fastest production-based car, earning Acura an overall third-place finish; by the Acura NSX, which set a new Hybrid record; by the TLX A-Spec, posting a new course record for a front-wheel-drive car; and the 2019 RDX making its motorsports debut third-in-class.

“We love Pikes Peak. It’s a tremendous test of Acura technology and of our performance capabilities,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of Acura. “Congratulations to Peter Cunningham and the RealTime Racing team, along with our associates at Honda R&D and Honda Performance Development who helped make this another exciting year for Acura at Pikes Peak.”

The TLX GT, driven by Peter Cunningham, posted an impressive, record-setting time of 9:27.352, earning Acura its third straight Open Class victory and an overall third place finish, bested only by two bespoke, highly specialized racing machines. This year’s TLX GT featured a power-enhanced J35 twin-turbo V6 motor with new software mapping, new transmission gearing, revised suspension geometry and Pirelli racing slicks. Long-time Acura racing partner and owner of RealTime Racing, Peter Cunningham, was last year’s Pikes Peak Rookie of the Year.

“I’m so proud of our Acura and RealTime Racing team, who, as usual, brought their A-game to the top of the mountain,” said Cunningham. “We had some incredibly tough competition this year, but all of our hard work, building on the great fundamentals of the Acura TLX, paid off in a big way again this year.”

The production-based Acura NSX, piloted by Honda R&D engineer James Robinson, posted a new Hybrid record, besting its own 2017 record with a time of 10:02.448, finishing fourth in the Time Attack 1 Class. Building on the successful modifications from last year’s run, the TA1 NSX featured larger turbos, new software and new aerodynamic elements including a bigger wing and front splitter.

The Acura TLX A-Spec, piloted by Honda R&D engineer and five-time Pikes Peak veteran Nick Robinson, set a new course record for a front-wheel-drive car with a time of 10:48.094. This year’s TLX A-Spec competed with an updated 500-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 turbo powerplant, a limited-slip differential and a revised aerodynamic package.

Pikes Peak rookie, and Honda R&D engineer Jordan Guitar, debuted the all-new 2019 RDX on the Exhibition Class podium despite deteriorating weather that forced race officials to truncate the course in its closing hours.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Acura has raced vehicles in the historic Pikes Peak event. Acura also served as the Official Pace Car sponsor of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, with a 2019 RDX A-Spec driven by Olympic figure skating bronze medalist Chris Knierim.

PUR ATTITUDE x CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME 

PUR ATTITUDE™ LAUNCHES ADVANCED CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME 

 

An Overnight Skincare Product with Natural Polymer Time-Released Technology, Bio-Advanced Peptides and Fermented Oil

 

PUR attitude™  released Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème, a high-performance anti-aging cream that delivers key ingredients into the skin overnight via a natural polymer time-released technology. The cream also leverages bio-advanced peptides that oxygenate the skin and promote cell renewal, and fermented oil to improve youthful suppleness of the skin.

 

“The beauty of the PUR attitude brand is that we can deliver such advanced technology using safe ingredients,” said Jerry Rayman, President of PUR attitude. “The science behind anti-aging skincare is developing at a rapid rate. The products have better performance than ever before. PUR attitude is delighted to deliver yet another high-performing product to the marketplace.”

 

Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. This night cream uses a complex of three different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid—combined with glucosamine and ceramides—to create a delivery system that encapsulates and time-releases key ingredients deep within the lower layers of the skin. The cream also delivers a bio-advanced peptide technology along with Acetyle Hexapeptide-3, which has been proven to help reduce the signs of aging.

 

While the health benefits of eating fermented, probiotic foods are widely accepted in the food industry at this time, their use in skin care is relatively new. Fermenting natural oils restructures complex molecules, transforming them into tiny “superfoods” for the skin, providing faster absorption that results in healthier, younger-looking skin. Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème uses a fermented olive oil for superior performance.

 

Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s standards for “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.

 

Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is available in 1 fl oz at a retail price of$59. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily). For more information, visit www.PURattitude.com.

THE AUTOMOTIVE VIDEO ASSOCIATION (AVA) ANNOUNCES TOP FINALISTS FOR THE AVA AWARDS – APPROPRIATELY TITLED: “THE MOUNTAIN RUN”



— Performance is the Theme for 2017 with 12 Vehicles Making the List —




The Automotive Video Association (AVA), which represents nearly 500 million unique viewers per year, today announced the list of finalists for the first-ever AVA Awards. The AVA award program will be hosted Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, and held at the Resort of the Mountain in Welches, Oregon. Titled “The Mountain Run,” the AVA selected High Performance as the vehicle category for 2017 pitting some of the world’s most incredible cars and SUV’s up against one another in an all-out battle for driving supremacy. The Finalists are:
Performance Car

 
Performance SUV

 
Awards competition programs are serious business in the auto industry and the AVA has developed a program that both tests out the cars capabilities, but also sets a tone of having fun while doing it. Consumers in the market place do care about horsepower numbers, but they also car about how a car will function as a daily driver. They care about how the Bluetooth works and whether the adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning actually help the driver operate the vehicle. The AVA Award program sets out to showcase all that is great about these top finalist vehicles, but also where they may be lacking in some areas. One vehicle will be crowned in each category, but the scores will be public knowledge on all vehicles.

The AVA was formed by video media outlets that span the country and this group represents the auto industry’s first-ever national media organization that focuses on video exclusively. 
The AVA was established to provide media outlets that specialize in video content the ability to promote their industry, which is the fastest growing segment within the spectrum of automotive media. The organization is made up of some of the most prominent and most followed automotive outlets in the country.

Over the past month, the AVA has been solicited by a handful of video media outlets to join this organization. The AVA looks forward to having more members join and to do this in a way that benefits all parties involved, the AVA is developing a solid foundation in 2017 and 2018 with its founding members. Once this association has been fully developed and two AVA Awards events have taken place, the group will gladly open its doors to new members.

The AVA has no boundaries and its content spans the globe. The new coalition helps promote the video aspect of covering the greater auto industry. The organization also isn’t limited to just card carrying journalists. The AVA has members that have a variety of backgrounds. The unifying nature is video and all video content is owned by its members.

The overarching goal of the AVA is to promote video as the primary outlet for content, but is also aimed at auto makers as well to showcase the power of video. Consumers today, look to video for their news. The combined bandwidth of the AVA is in the millions for monthly unique views. This is something no traditional media outlet can do.

Although we reported on the founding members in our last news release, the below is a quick reminder of these media groups are:

Nik Miles (OurAutoExpert.com) – Northwest

Roman Mica (The Fastlane Car) – Midwest

Alex Dykes (AlexOnAutos) – Northern Cal

Kyle Lindsey (Saabkyle04) – North Carolina

Sofyan Bey (Redline Reviews) – DC

Jason Fenske (Engineering Explained) – Idaho

Matt Maranowski (Matt Maran Motoring) – Pennsylvania
