ANSWER: Several clients often upload directories or .HTML or .PHP files outside their WordPress installation because they think its the only way to perform a certain function or design an entirely custom landing page or otherwise. This is 100% inaccurate, and can cause serious issues in regard to speed, security, and stability because these URLs are not benefiting from the security and coordination that is built into WordPress (and our Nginx rules).
Instead, simply create a new page in your WordPress i.e. “custom-landing” and then if you want a totally custom design for that page you just upload a new file under your theme’s directory called “page-custom-landing.php” and WordPress will automagically use that PHP file design as the design for the relevant URL it belongs to. Don’t forget to rename that PHP file in your theme directory in case you decide to change the slug of that page in your WordPress database.Last modified: 16 May, 2016
"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."Steve G.
"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.
