LELB Society on WordPress from July 2015

LELB Society on WordPress tries to meet the needs of its English and Persian members and students all around the world. The selection of WordPress as our CMS is not accidental. In fact, back in 2010, Dr. Mohammad Hossein Hariri Asl first created the brand of LELB Society on webs.com, which is a free website builder of course on a different domain.

LELB Society on Drupal

After one year, I decided to run my site more professionally, and installed it on Drupal.org on a shared hosting service from greengeeks.com. I found Drupal not a very good user-friendly CMS because, on many occasions, I used to get php fatal errors.

LELB Society on Blogger

Afterwards, I chose Blogger.com from Google to run my website / weblog with the same brand, that is, LELB Society. At that time, I was the owner of www.lelbs.com as my domain.

Running my website on blogger.com could not satisfy me and my students because I could not create an online community with some specific features, including an accessible database, installing plugins to expand the functionality of my website, and above all, running a membership website. As a result, I had to find another alternative.

Study at LELB Society to practice English for IELTS, TOEFL, GRE and Farsi

It was my 33rd birthday, July 7th, 2015, that I purchased the current domain, that is, LELB.net, pointing to my new website on WordPress from iFastnet.com, and it was the birth of LELB Society on WordPress.

My prior experience with other CMSs compared to WordPress immediately made me so passionate about WordPress that I made up my mind to continue with WordPress until the present moment.

From that time on, I’ve been working on LELB Society on WordPress day in, day out. I’ve studied thousands of articles on how to manage and maintain websites on WordPress, optimize WordPress speed, improve its security, learn about its themes and plugins, and many other aspects of website development. I’ve also accepted some website development and design services for other people and companies running on WordPress.

After a couple of years, iFastnet.com could not meet the needs of LELB Society on WordPress. So, I transferred my site to hostgator.com, and then in the next year, siteground.com on shared hosting plans. After 2 years, in 2020, I decided not to use shared hosting plans anymore.

Instead, I migrated my WordPress website and its database to a Virtual Private Server (VPS). At first, it was difficult for me to run my website on VPS as you’re totally responsible for any fatal error or technical issues that might emerge from nowhere.

However, I’ve been learning a lot from 2020 to the present moment, thanks to an abundance of free tutorials and resources, such as wpbeginner.com.

100% speed for LELB Society on WordPress

rapid LELB Society

Although LELB Society today has hundreds of English and Persian students or members worldwide with thousands of English and Persian lessons, its WordPress speed is totally perfect calculated by Google’s PageSpeed Insights. Running our website on VPS and using a content delivery network (CDN) have helped us tremendously to optimize the speed of our WordPress website.

Furthermore, at LELB Society, we only use any plugin or theme that is absolutely necessary. As a result, the number of used plugins and themes at LELB Society is genuinely below 5, and the other functionalities have been taken care of with standard PHP and JavaScript codes.

WordPress themes

Right now, we’re using GeneratePress theme on WordPress because it is super fast and customizable. As a developer, I need to use a theme that I can tweak if necessary to extend the functionality of LELB Society.

The selection of GeneratePress is actually wise and has been made after trying other popular WordPress themes, such as Astra and default WordPress themes.

LELB Society on CloudFlare

Our domain (lelb.net) is now on cloudflare.com for speed and security purposes. CloudFlare has protected our website against DDoS or distributed denial of service attacks.

Consequently, less burden would be placed on the shoulder of our web server. On the other hand, our users from different parts of the world can access our website equally fast, which per se has made LELB Society a global brand.

LELB Society is a bilingual academy

As native Iranians, we run a bilingual academy here at LELB Society serving both English and Persian students worldwide, and fortunately, in both language departments, we’ve been really successful.

A good testimony to our success in both English and Persian departments is that, in terms of English, we have developed the most advanced and comprehensive visual vocabulary builder in context for advanced ESL learners including over 2,600 advanced vocabulary items in real context with illustrations.

Persian language resources for non-Persian speakers

Regarding our Persian department, our team has developed over 340 original lessons on Farsi in the form of Persian stories, Persian alphabet, practicing the 4 skills in Farsi, Persian grammar, and the like organized around themes, proficiency levels and even the age groups of our Persian learners, which we believe to be unprecedented.

All Persian lessons are enriched with video tutorials, and voice and text comment forms to make our Persian students independent and autonomous through flipped learning or flipped classroom.

From rags to riches

Tour de force in real context with images from 601 Words You Need to Know

Running a membership website with hundreds of happy members worldwide has always been one of my ambitions. When I launched this website back in 2015, I had no idea I could turn in into a lucrative business in around 6 years. As a successful and excited entrepreneur, I started from zero, and reached for riches by taking my business seriously and developing my best to the betterment of LELB Society.

At the outset of my professional career on this website, I didn’t even have enough money to pay for online courses. Therefore, I self-taught with free tutorials and videos on YouTube and informative articles online.

Actually, I didn’t or couldn’t spend any penny on updating my knowledge and improving the quality of my website. This optimum level of independency was one of the best things that ever happened to me because, in reality, the first step was the most difficult one.

After a while, I became an expert in the field of website management and gained many useful insights into administrating my own website without any limitation or dependency.

These statistics show that we are highly motivated to make LELB Society even better in the course of time on the premise of the cumulative effect because, in principle, the first learner at LELB Society has always been Dr. Hariri, who is the creator of this community.
