How to redirect your domain name to a wpengine’s site

leave a comment »

Say you have:
1. signed up for a wpengine account (mine is sachmy.wpengine.com)
2. uploaded some template
3. added some posts
and everything looks good. Now you are ready to redirect sachmy.wpengine.com to ndat.org (this is the domain you bought)
Here is how:
1. Go to your dns hosting companies (godaddy,namecheap,etc) and
a. add a A name record ndat.org that points to the IP address of sachmy.wpengine.com (log in wpengine to get this IP address)
b. add a C name record http://www.ndat.org that points to ndat.org
Note that it may take up to 24 hours for this change to take effect
2. Log in my.wpengine.com and redirect both sachmy.wpengine.com and http://www.ndat.org to ndat.org
3. Log in wordpress admin and change your site info

That is it. Go to ndat.org and http://www.ndat.org you should see your wpengine site. If not file a ticket w/ wpengine support. They should be able to help you out

Ruby on rails dev shops in Vietnam

with 2 comments

Most universities in Vietnam teach PHP. Most outsourcing software companies in Vietnam use PHP or ASP.NET. Good ruby on rails dev shops are few and far in between. Having the advantage of living in Vietnam (and becoming pretty active in the tech community in Saigon and Hanoi) for the past few years, I have had the privilege of knowing a few of them. So here they are in no particular order:
1. East Agile (uses agile/xp methodologies)
2. Tech Propulsions Lab
3. Larion Computing
4. Seta
If I miss some other companies, let me know in the comment section below
