How to design a Down Triangle using CSS

This tutorial teaches you how to design a simple but powerful triangle pointing down using CSS.

I am sure we have been seeing things like this on Facebook, Google-plus, etc and wonder how it can be done. It is very easy to do using CSS.

Most of these designs are often done with an image in the CSS file and also with the help of a JavaScript but this one is special in the sense that it does not require an image or a JavaScript, it uses CSS only.

In this tutorial, we are going to use the CSS pseudo classes which are :before and :after with HTML codes to accomplish the task.

Domain Checker using Ajax, Jquery and PHP

This is a paid script and it helps you to design a system whereby people or your clients can easily check for the availability of a domain on your server or website and buy it if they want using Ajax, Jquery and PHP.

The system allows individuals to search for domains with a particular extension or domains with multiple extensions depending on what they prefer or how you want the domain search on your website to be.

When a user enters the name of a domain that he or she intends to search for in the field specified for the domain search and clicks on the search button, the system will communicate with domain registrars servers or websites to check for the availability of that domain and displays results to the user depending on the response gotten from those domain registrars servers or websites.

To check for a domain with a particular extension is the best option for this system because searches will be done on just one server and so will the response from the server be faster compare to a situation where a user intends to check for a domain with multiple extensions, the response from the servers will be slow because the system will need to communicate with about 46 servers or websites to check for the different extensions for the domain name specified.

Although, you can change the number of servers to check for a domain name by reducing it in the array given in the script to make things work faster.

The system supports all modern browsers and the scripts are written in a way that any one can easily understand and customize with good programming code comments to ease usability.

There is no special installation or configuration needed to use the system, all you need to do is to upload the files to your server or transfer the codes to your existing website and you are good to go.
