Case Study
  • Web Hosting

  • Cloud Hosting Resources
    Clouds hosting are dedicated pools of resources built from any NetLink dedicated server configurations, and can be scaled in two ways: by adding more dedicated resources to the Cloud and by scaling within the already allocated resources.

    Cloud hosting works by virtualizing the resources within an isolated dedicated server or group of servers. This allows scaling, but only within the allocated resources. To scale outside these resources, additional dedicated servers must be added to the Cloud preference.

    Because privacy and security are two of the biggest attractions in Cloud servers, as you would be the only one with access to its contents. This configuration is ideal for larger businesses in need of high security, but without immediate need for high-resource scaling.

  • Shared Hosting
    Shared hosting, sometimes called shared services or virtual hosting, is simply when multiple web sites share the same server, thus reducing the cost for everyone.

    With a shared hosting account, your site will usually be on a server with hundreds of other web sites. That may sound like a lot, but it usually works out extremely well because most sites don't generate enough traffic or use enough resources for it to become a problem.

    Share hosting is suitable for personal sites, small businesses, and even medium sized businesses if their hosting needs fit within the parameters of a small business.

    Most shared hosting providers offer substantially more disk space, data transfer, and email accounts than most people or businesses need. If every site used their quota, shared hosting would not work. But since few do, it actually works out quite nicely.

    Because most people and businesses don't use most of the features they have available to them, using feature lists to choose a web host doesn't usually narrow the field much. What should be the criteria used to choose a host is harder to measure, so most people end up making uneducated choices and hope for the best. NetLink never overselling or overloading in a CPU/Server when you choose shared preference.
  • VPS Hosting
    Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting is an innovative approach to partitioning physical servers into several virtual machines. It is the future of modern hosting as it provides the power and functionality of a high-end dedicated server but at a much cheaper price. By purchasing a VPS you get a 100% individual machine with root access and your own dedicated CPU and RAM.

    Each Virtual Server can run under its own operating system (Windows, Linux, BSD, CentOS or Solaris) or have custom configurations of its own.

    NetLink's VPS Hosting is an ideal bridge between shared hosting and dedicated servers. VPS plans can be completely customized to match your specific hosting needs and upgraded anytime as your site grows. It's a great way to start small but still have the ability to scale up very quickly.

    With full root access, you're able to install advanced software and completely customize virtually anything as if your VPS were a dedicated server without the cost of one. For easy administration, cPanel is available.
  • Hosting Control Panel

    NetLink love cPanel as web hosting control panel.


    cPanel is a Unix based web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a web site. cPanel utilizes a 3 tier structure that provides functionality for administrators, resellers, and end-user website owners to control the various aspects of website and server administration through a standard web browser.

    In addition to the GUI interface cPanel also has command line and API based access that allows third party software vendors, web hosting organizations, and developers to automate standard system administration processes.

    cPanel is designed to function either as a dedicated server or virtual private server. The latest cPanel version supports installation on CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and CloudLinux. cPanel 11.30 is the last major version to support FreeBSD.

    Application-based support includes Apache, PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Perl, and BIND (DNS). Email based support includes POP3, IMAP, SMTP services. cPanel is commonly accessed on port 2082, with an SSL-secured server operating on port 2083.

    We assigned SSL access to all ports at our servers.
  • cPanel Reseller Hosting
    Reseller hosting helps you to resell to accommodation in case you own a hosting firm. As you do not need to own the firm, you need not take tension because of the hardware, IT problems and bandwidth which are handled by the web host.

    Simple to use control panel thus makes reseller hosting a great solution. You will easily be able to make web host accounts for the customers you have and keep them intact without any hassles.

    Using reseller hosting, you do not even require any web servers, DNS servers, mail server as well as an Internet connection that works great. Most of the reseller host plans are available with all essential tools to let a webmaster to serve as a reseller organization.

    Some offer templates as well in which you can get a site with your own name so that others do not know that you are a dealer. This is known as private labeling. At NetLink you can use your own brand, name server, logo, package which increase your hosting business images to end users.
  • Security

  • Application Vulnerability
    Hackers today have an ever increasing list of weaknesses in the web application structure at their disposal, which they can exploit to accomplish a wide variety of malicious tasks.

    New flaws in web application security measures are constantly being researched, both by hackers and by security professionals. Most of these flaws affect all dynamic web applications whilst others are dependent on specific application technologies.

    In both cases, one may observe how the evolution and refinement of web technologies also brings about new exploits which compromise sensitive databases, provide access to theoretically secure networks, and pose a threat to the daily operation of online businesses.

    NetLink scanned so many popular applications and detect serious exploits. Specially old plugins or application using a very bad practice in web arena which violate system security.
  • Clean Local System
    Malware includes applications that spy on you, corrupt your data, destroy your hard drive or give control of your machine to someone thousands of miles away. No matter what form it takes, it's bad business. And since there are a lot of examples of malware in the wild, it may only be a matter of time before you become the victim of a malware attack.

    The most important advice we can give anyone who believes he or she has a computer with malware on it is this: Don't panic. Also, don't assume that you need to wipe your computer clean and start from scratch. Often you can remove malware without having to erase everything else. You may lose some data in the process, but you probably won't lose everything.

    First you need to determine if your computer has a virus at all. You might suspect your computer of having a virus if it seems to be sluggish. If your Web browser suddenly looks different or automatically goes to a site you don't recognize, that's a good indication that you've got some malware. If your computer is unstable and crashes fairly often, you may have a problem. And if you try to access files but receive a message saying they're corrupted, that's another sign.

    If you do think your computer has a virus, you need to run antivirus software to weed it out. Some viruses disable antivirus software, they're clever that way. If you do not have any antivirus software, its a good time to purchase or download an application. A few malware variants will try to block you from downloading antivirus software. If that's the case, you may need to download the software on another computer and transfer it to disk or a flash drive.

    After install antivirus software should update regularly and perform automatic scan or protection.
  • eCommerce Security
    Having strong security options must be a priority when you're working with dozens of online payment options. Find applications that offer fraud protection and Secure Socket Layer protection.

    Many other security features include requiring customers to enter the CVV2 code from the back of their credit cards. Also, look for password protection before entering administration panels or other business-related information.

    We provide world famous provider’s SSL certificate also installation service to keep your eCommerce business secure.
  • Maintain Domains Security
    The security of domain name registrations is an increasing concern for domain name registrants and registrars. However, there are steps you can take to increase the security of your domain name registrations.

    Domain Name Security is often neglected by most organisations. Infact a large number of hacking attempts do not really need to happen at the Web Server level. Most hackers can fairly disrupt your business by simply hijacking your Domain Name. Most Registrars assign paramount importance to Domain Security. Its important you choose the RIGHT Registrar and who has implemented several security measures and safety locks to prevent your Domain Name from getting Hijacked or taken over.

    There are basically TWO basic options offered by Registrars:

    Password Based Security

    All Domain Names have a password based security. All Domain Names belonging to a particular Customer can only be modified through the right Username and Password combination of that customer.

    Domain LOCK

    This is a MUST have for all due to the recently announced TRANSFER Policy by ICANN (Visit : http://www.icann.org/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm)

    Several TLD Registries have the ability to create what is known as a Domain LOCK. Most Registrars offers this feature to Customers whereby you may place a LOCK on your Domain Name. Once a Domain Name is locked NO modifications can be made to the Domain by ANYONE. The Domain Name may not even be transferred to another Registrar. The Domain will remain in a LOCKED status until you yourself choose to remove the LOCK. This feature is by far the most powerful feature to ensure that none can make any changes to your Domain Name without your express approval.

    NetLink assigned auto locking system when register a new domains names also ensure that a strong password must be input by clients.
  • Keep Email Security
    As the range of email threats has grown, systems for email security and encryption have become ever more complex. Users demand ever higher levels of protection while at the same time expect more business enabling functionality. Businesses are left spending significant amounts of money trying to secure email systems, even in the face of industry consolidation and gateway commoditization. NetLink is bringing the value of the Secure Email Gateway back.

    NetLink Email Security provides the most comprehensive, cloud-based email risk mitigation available in the market today.

    NetLink Email Security allows end users to manage their Secure Email Gateway, as well as manage their safe and blocked senders list, or even report spam, all from directly within Microsoft Outlook.

    We protect against inbound and outbound email-borne threats. This includes malware, spam, phishing, DHA & DDoS attacks, deliberate or accidental data leaks, outages, and social engineering attacks.

    Email user benefits


    No more unwanted email
    Users never leave Outlook to manage email
    Interactive email quarantine digests from Outlook
    Minimal administration for users
    End user Secure Email Gateway policy actions for encryption, email routing and email stationery
    Direct access to block and allow lists within Outlook
    Spam reporting and blocking from directly within their inbox

  • FTP Security Issues
    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) provides the capability of transferring files between a client (a user on another system) and your server. You can also use the remote command capability to submit commands to the server. Consequently, FTP is very useful for working with remote systems, or to move files between systems. However, the use of FTP across the Internet, or other untrusted networks, exposes you to certain security risks. You must understand these risks to ensure that your security policy describes how you will minimize these risks.

    You may want to consider using Anonymous FTP to provide a convenient way for users to access non-confidential material easily. Anonymous FTP enables unprotected access (no password required) to selected information on a remote system. The remote site determines what information is made available for general access. Such information is considered to be publicly accessible and can be read by anyone. Before configure Anonymous FTP, you should weigh the security risks and consider securing your FTP server with exit programs.

    A hacker can mount a "denial of service" attack with your FTP server to disable user profiles on the system. This is done by repeatedly attempting to log on with an incorrect password for a user profile until the user profile is disabled. This type of attack disables the profile if it reaches the maximum sign on count of five.

    NetLink keeping brute force protection system means untrusted activities will be blocked to maintain its security.
  • Secure Password
    Passwords based on personal information easily obtained from the net -- such as account name, actual first or last name, initials of the name, system name, etc. -- are extremely easy to guess and should never be used. Hackers are also on to all the usual tricks, such as spelling a name backwards or simple substituion of characters. Certain easily-guessed words are also commonly used as (poor) passwords -- such as "guest", "password", "secret", etc. -- and should never be used as passwords.

    Hackers also have easy access to very powerful password-cracking tools incorporating extensive word and name dictionaries. Passwords should never be dictionary words or names. The cracking tools will also check for simple tricks like words spelled backwards or simple substitution of certain characters (i.e. "mouse" becomes "m0us3"). Pass phrases of several words are often OK, as long as the combination is not too obviously guessable.

    Using the maximum number of characters (more than 16 mixed characters) greatly increases the complexity of guessing or cracking passwords and change password time to time.

    Our system maintains security rules, some time we force to change password and allow only more than 80% or 95% strong password.
  • Server Security
    Once upon a time, the World Wide Web was a relatively static place. The Web server's sole function was to simply deliver a requested Web page, written in HTML, to a client browser. Over time, developers started looking for ways to interact with users by providing dynamic content -- that is, content that displayed a form or executed a script based on user input. Thus Server Side Includes (SSI) and the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) were born.

    A Server Side Include page is typically an HTML page with embedded command(s) that are executed by the Web server. An SSI page is parsed by the server (a "normal" Web page is not), and if SSI commands are found they are executed before the resultant output is delivered to the requesting client. SSI is used in situations that demand a small amount of dynamic content be inserted in a page, such as a copyright notice or the date. SSI can also be used to call a CGI script; however, there is a performance penalty associated with SSI. The server must parse every page designated as SSI-enabled, which is not an optimal solution on a heavily loaded Web server.

    The CGI is a standard for communication between a program or script, written in any one of several languages, and a Web server. The CGI specification is very simple: input from a client is passed to the program or script on STDIN (standard input). The program then takes that information, processes it, and returns the result on STDOUT (standard output) to the Web server. The Web server combines this output with the requested page and returns it to the client as HTML. CGI applications do not force the server to parse every requested page; only pages containing CGI-recognized arguments involve further processing.

    This article is targeted at Webmasters and system administers responsible for securing a Web server configured to provide dynamic content to clients. It details general security issues related to SSI- and CGI-enabled content, reducing CGI risks with wrappers, and some brief language-specific caveats. This article does not cover the configuration steps required to enable SSI or CGI. Configuration examples provided are based on the latest 1.3 version of Apache, which at the time of this writing is 1.3.26. In addition, the following is assumed:
    • Your network is secure, behind a firewall, and the server itself is in a controlled environment.
    • The operating system has been properly secured and all unnecessary services are disabled.
    • The Apache user and group directives are correctly set, and appropriate permissions assigned.
    • The ServerRoot and log directories are protected.
    • User overrides are disabled.
    • Default access has been disabled, and access opened for only those system directories designated "public". For example, on a system configured to host user Web pages from /home/username/public_html, Apache's httpd.conf configuration file should contain the following directives:

    NetLink has good working knowledge of general Web server security, installing and configuring Apache, Apache modules, Apache's key configuration directives, the role of Apache's .htaccess file, how to read log files, UNIX file permissions, and basic system administration.
  • Spam Protection
    We enebled Apache SpamAssassin Project to protect spam. Know its basic features as follows:

    Wide-spectrum

    SpamAssassin uses a wide variety of local and network tests to identify spam signatures. This makes it harder for spammers to identify one aspect which they can craft their messages to work around.

    Free software

    it is distributed under the same terms and conditions as other popular open-source software packages such as the Apache web server.

    Easy to extend

    Anti-spam tests and configuration are stored in plain text, making it easy to configure and add new rules.

    Flexible

    SpamAssassin encapsulates its logic in a well-designed, abstract API so it can be integrated anywhere in the email stream. The Mail::SpamAssassin classes can be used on a wide variety of email systems including procmail, sendmail, Postfix, qmail, and many others.

    Easy Configuration

    SpamAssassin requires very little configuration; you do not need to continually update it with details of your mail accounts, mailing list memberships, etc. Once classified, site and user-specific policies can then be applied against spam. Policies can be applied on both mail servers and later using the user's own mail user-agent application.
  • Monitor The Security
    To maintain security of network and data resources, continuous monitoring of network activity becomes mandatory. Our system administrators detect anomalous readings by the automatic notification during monitoring.

    We at Stylus have effective secure procedures that are based on the computer security policy. Procedures address topics like retrieving programs from the network, connecting to the site's system from home or while traveling, using encryption, authentication for issuing accounts, configuration, and monitoring. We ensure the integrity of system software on a regular basis.

    We have a security policy and a clear high-level document plan for organization-wide computer and information security. It provides a framework for making specific decisions, such as online credit card use and how to configure merchant account services etc.

    Internet/ecommerce security isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. The two arms of website security are firewall and encryption, which when combined can guarantee safe transaction and secure transfer of information to the right place. The monitoring of tools that will maintain vigilance on your hardware and software security has to be of primary importance. The security policies and procedures are the salient processes that any software corporate must consider. As the business use of the Internet increases day by day, network security will become crucial to the development of the Internet.
  • eCommerce Fraud Protection
    Fraud is exploding on the internet. Every day fraudsters are exploiting unwary merchants and stealing millions. And, it’s not just thieves. “Friendly fraud” comes from real buyers who simply know how to work the credit card system in their favor. They deny receiving merchandise or say it was never ordered in the first place.

    It’s crucial that any eCommerce merchant have a rule-set based fraud management utility that allows merchants to configure extensive filters to help them in detecting fraud and screening suspicious transactions. Extensive reporting systems give merchants a quick and easy way to review transactions, block suspicious activity, and zero in on malicious users.

    A good fraud protection system is easily controlled by the merchant who has complete control over the system. Through a control panel, merchants can:
    1. Maintain good and bad customer lists
    2. Create and edit processing controls
    3. Restrict or allow access by banning IP addresses, counties, zip codes or any other geographic variable
    4. Set controls to filter for email address, transaction count, dollar amounts, velocity checks and a variety of other parameters.

    Properly set fraud filters eliminate the majority of fraudulent transactions in real-time. The selected filters can be customized for each merchant, which are continuously updated to keep the merchant one step ahead of the fraudsters.
  • Encryption & SSL Certificates
    Using a Digital Certificate (Digital ID) in conjunction with SSL encryption provides complete security for all parties involved in a transaction. Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is again a service that is universally accepted on the World Wide Web for authenticated and encrypted communication between clients and servers.

    The most commonly used agencies are Thawte and Verisign. Both have online applications to speed up the process. Also, usually hosting companies have a tie-up with these companies.
  • Firewalls
    Firewalls are tools that are used to enhance the security of computers connected to a network, such as a Local Area Network or the Internet. Firewalls deny or accept all messages and sites based on a list that is stored in the system. This is usually decided by a system administrator.

    The two kinds of firewall mechanisms are namely packet filtering and stateful packet inspection.

    The former does not check the content of a message where as the later checks the content, thereby providing more security.
  • Payments Security
    Lets assume that you have a website of your own. Your website allows transactions online. You type in your website's domain to see those lovely articles, beautiful pictures that you meticulously engineered to put on your site.

    You see unfamiliar things. Things that you have never intended to publish have come up on your monitor. Something has gone haywire. Did you type the domain name wrong? You check with the network administrator and to his dismay, he too looks at the page with the same amount of astonishment as you feel. Where did things go wrong? Did you think of hackers, viruses and lurking cyber goons?

    Enough to give you an aversion. How do you prevent this? An efficient firewall is the armor your network needs to combat most of these threats.

    Does your website offer online transactions too? You may have been wondering about the safety and security aspects involved in online transactions.

    Just consider a scenario where you stay at a hotel and pay your bill through credit card - there is nothing to stop the clerk to make a copy of your credit card information. For any kind of transaction, all that is important is your credit card number and the expiry date. Keeping this in mind would you stick with the myth of avoiding e-commerce? You will be looking for greater security for that golden number that you hold.

    Enabling online transaction on your website is not all that simple. Let me describe what it would mean.
  • Email Marketing Legal Issue
    Spamming is a huge problem with emails; a ‘spam’ email is an unsolicited commercial email that is sent without the person giving permission. So is email marketing to your address list spamming? The simple answer is no; if someone has agreed to receive emails from you then providing you follow legal guidelines it is not the same as spamming.

    Unsolicited Messages

    Is someone has not given you their email address directly, and you have not got it from a verified list; it is against the law to send them commercial messages. Un-requested (Unsolicited) messages are spam, and you must not send them; even if you think the person would be interested in the contents.

    The only possible exception is if you have a long standing business relationship; if for example, the customer purchases from you every month for a year. However, the rules and guidance on this exception are not very clear.

    If you consider sending messages under this rule, you need to carefully weigh up each business relationship on its own individual merits; if you even suspect that they may not want to see it then it is best not to send.

    Opting-out

    Even though someone has given you their email address, they still have the right to opt-out and prevent any further emails. You must make it easy for people to remove their name from your list, and you need to include easy instructions on how to do so. If they choose to remove themselves you must remove their address and not send any further mails.

    Frequency

    If you sign people to your email list, you must give them an accurate idea of how many emails they will get. You don’t have to say “one email every 18 days”, but you should differentiate between regular (Approx daily to weekly), occasional (Approx fortnightly to monthly), and rare (Approx less than once a month) communication to prevent irritating recipients. If you say ‘occasional emails’ and then send 3 a day, people will get fed up and remove their addresses very quickly, but if you say one a day then send one a month people may forget about you; so be realistic with what you plan to send.

    Sending

    When you send your emails you MUST make sure that each person only sees their email address. This may mean sending each email separately, or using the ‘BCC’ function in your email program/facility. BCC hides the email addresses that each email is being sent to, this way people cannot steal other peoples addresses by reading it. Do not use the CC function, otherwise everyone will see all the email addresses.

    Privacy

    You must not give away anybody’ s email addresses to other companies or people. You can ask for permission to pass on their details to other reputable companies (I.e.: Companies that you believe are trustworthy and of interest to the customer only), but most people will not want to do this. You should make sure that your customers are aware that you respect their privacy; you should state “We do not give your details to anybody else.” As long as you actually do this, it will help to build trust in your business by showing you are honest and respect their privacy.

    Facts

    Every email that you send must make it clear who you are, and give the recipients genuine contact details to respond through. You should have a regularly checked contact email at the very minimum, and preferably a contact telephone number and mailing address. If you include details of a special offer, you must include details of any terms or conditions that apply. e.g. If the offer is only valid on weekdays you must state this.

    NetLink connect with some online users with a valid permission based mailing system.

  • eCommerce Effective SEO methods
    When we develop an eCommerce site, considering SEO and online marketing is as important as what you develop as the end product. Normally, People who wants to develop an eCommerce site for get to plan for making the site ready for SEO during the development, But making a plan for SEO readiness is as importent as developing the eCommerce site functions.

    Unlike content sites driveing traffic to ecommerce sites which are database driven and quite often the products might be changingand hence may not get a good place in the search results. But the good news is an eCommerce site can be optimized the same way as a content site by adding related keywords. By identifying some of the key issues in a dynamic site that keeps the site away from Search results, we bring the eCommerce site also in better positions in the search result pages.

    The first is to create a front-end site separate from the shopping cart. You will create a number of pages that can be easily spidered (assuming that they’re well organized and optimised for Search engines). The drawback to this course of action is that your website will forever be limited to the size of the front-end site, managing such sites with large number of products would be painful.

    SEO-friendly shopping cart system is far easier said than done. There are many factors that have to be taken into account including the spider ability of the pages themselves, the customization capacity of the individual pages, the ease of adding products and changing the pages down the road, etc.

    We also care for Dynamic Title & Meta Tags, Logo and Image alt tags, Header tags, SEO friendly URL and much more…

    We integrate help and support center for eCommerce website. It is good idea to manage customer quarry and solve the issue.
  • eCommerce Marketing Budget
    After you have identified your market demographic, fixed your goals and decided on a promotional strategy for reaching potential customers, the next step is to figure out how to maximize your budget and get the job done without over spending. Even though the exact process will vary from business to business, the principle remains the same.

    You want to expose your product or service, as often as possible, to consumers who will derive the most benefit from it. Studies show that the average consumer will see a promotion about five to seven times before taking action on the offer.

    So instead of blowing your budget on a single opportunity to reach your select group, it is much wiser to get everyone's attention with repeated promotions. Use as many different forms of advertising as you can afford and squeeze the most out of your marketing dollars.

    A virtual assistant works from his or her office as an independent contractor and is responsible for whatever administrative or operational responsibilities you assign. Compensation can be agreed upon at an hourly rate, per assignment or by retainer.

    If you are not yet at the stage where you can afford to pay a virtual assistant, you can consider a suitable barter arrangement with a subscriber or a customer. You can also ask a family member or a friend for help. You can't do it all yourself and you shouldn't even consider that option for the long-term.

    NetLink provides expert service to off load your work burden. Whether it's updating website products and content, managing and/or providing your marketing and advertising campaigns, or just providing consultation to your business; we provides service second to none in both expertise and affordability.
  • Website Development Issues
    Developing a website is like building a house. To bring a web project to a successful conclusion (not the best word since website building is a task without formal end) one must start by asking the right questions. A home builder or architect might ask if you plan to build a primary home? What is the size of your family? Your lifestyle? Your space requirements? Your budget? A web developer should ask:

    What is the goal of the site?
    Obvious on the surface - but you'd be surprised how many projects are launched without goals being adequately defined. Simply put, you need to spell out your objectives. Are we going to be selling a product online (an ecommerce website)? Are we instead selling a service? Is the website going to serve in a sales support capacity – a place you can send pre-identified prospects to? Is its primary objective to improve customer service or support? In all probability, your website will have multiple objectives, which should be listed in order of priority.

    How does the website fit within your overall business activities?
    If your site is going to generate leads or sales, how important is it as a source of same given your other marketing/sales activities? If you have a traditional retail business, how will the website work together with your shop (inventory, shipping, advertising, etc.)? If you have a service business, how will the site augment your current efforts and what portion of leads over time do you expect to come from your online marketing efforts?

    What is your overall Internet budget?
    While we know how difficult this is to talk about to a vendor, much less a prospective vendor (so if you can't, at least have this conversation with yourself), it's critical nonetheless. Remember to include your longer term marketing and operating costs in your budget. To be successful today you will invariably spend more time and money promoting, changing and servicing the site than you will on building it in the first place. If budgets are limited (which they should be, even if you are loaded) promotion and operations should get more of your budget than development.

    NetLink beside of you to fulfill your complete requirement within cost competitive financial budget.

  • Object Oriented Programmin
    Object-oriented programming languages support the object-oriented programming techniques like encapsulation, abstraction, inheritance and polymorphism. Object-oriented programming makes use of classes, objects and the interaction between objects. Many computer programming languages of the present times support object-oriented programming. Some of the widely used programming languages that offer object-oriented programming features are C++, C#, Java, Perl 5, PHP, Python and Ruby.

  • Procedural Programming
    Procedural programming is synonymous with imperative programming, which implies specifying the steps that the programs should take to reach to an intended state. It is a programming paradigm that involves procedure calls. A procedure is a group of statements that can be referenced through a procedure call. Procedures help in reuse of code. Procedural programming makes the programs structured and easily traceable for program flow.
