ANSWER: Bcrypt password encryption means that LittleBizzy is the only managed WordPress hosting company that forced all client sites to use PHP Bcrypt to encrypt all of their site user passwords. This is a very high tech and more recent encryption method that replaces older and less safe methods such as MD5 hashing. The method we use to do this is a special script developed by the folks at Roots, a well-established WordPress agency. This is a Must Use plugin meaning it can’t be removed, but in the case it ever has issues, your site will smoothly “fallback” to the older WordPress MD5 hashing methods.
Keep in mind that to activate the Bcrypt encryption it requires each user to login and logout at some point, at which point their password is re-encrypted. As far as non-active users who don’t login to WordPress, their passwords will NOT be re-encrypted using Bcyrpt and will remain stored in the database with MD5 hashes. For ultimate protection, you can either delete inactive users, reset their passwords to something temporary and LOGIN for them to get Bcrypt activated, or ask them to manually reset their passwords to something new after moving to LittleBizzy hosting.Last modified: 27 Jul, 2016https://www.littlebizzy.com/?p=12684
"After being hosted on GoDaddy for years, I didn't realize how negatively it was impacting my search traffic. Soon after moving to LittleBizzy, my homepage went from page 3 on Google to #1 world-wide for my target market, and I also reached the top 3 on Google Maps, with no additional SEO work."Juliette S.
"Before moving to LittleBizzy, whenever our news website was featured on the Drudge Report, it often slowed to a crawl or even froze up during big traffic spikes. Now, that never happens anymore, and we've been able to focus on publishing more articles instead of worrying about our web hosting."Tony H.
"The research by Amazon is definitely true, because our slow WooCommerce store was bleeding sales. After LittleBizzy stabilized our performance and moved us closer to our target customers, we saw a measurable improvement in shopping cart checkouts, esp. during holidays... much better!"Mohammed H.
