As part of our Must Use Plugins, we install the Disable Embeds plugin which disables automatic embed (oEmbed) functions in WordPress. This is because the oEmbed feature of WordPress that was added a few years ago has several drawbacks. For example it allows other websites to embed — and therefore load your site’s database queries — onto their own blog pages, which is sort of like the bad practice of hotlinking.
However, the Disable Embeds plugin does support whitelisting certain third party oEmbed sources. This can be done by adding a simple defined constant (code snippet) to your WordPress website.
/* Disable Embeds Functions */ define('DISABLE_EMBEDS', 'true'); define('DISABLE_EMBEDS_ALLOWED_SOURCES', 'youtube,twitter,soundcloud,scribd');
These quick embed codes will NOT work on LittleBizzy servers:
Using the ‘proper’ embed code is the best way (and improves performance). Here is a YouTube example:

"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.
