No, we do not. Initially, we did, as it provides an encryption option for web users visiting websites in the case that the website owner has not setup a ‘proper’ SSL connection yet. However, we decided to disable and disallow the ‘flexible SSL’ option for all of our clients. The reason for this is that the ‘flexible SSL’ option gives users the allusion that a website is fully encrypted and private when in fact its not; that is, the connection between CloudFlare and a user’s browser is encrypted despite the actual origin server completely lacking an SSL certificate or encryption of any kind. In other words, the site’s data is not secure or encrypted and in danger of packet sniffing, hackers, or so forth, without the users even knowing this. As our goal at LittleBizzy is transparency and quality, we decided not to allow these “pseudo/fake” SSL connections on our network, and we require website owners that desire SSL to order that setup from us so that a proper SSL can be setup on their origin server, then all HTTP resources are 301 redirected to their HTTPS version, and lastly the database is scanned and replaced with the HTTPS versions. This ensures that both website owners and their visitors are more clear about SSL vs non SSL in the world of LittleBizzy and can take better confidence in knowing that data is safe. Plus, we are aiming toward PCI compliance in the future and this is a serious security concern that we decided to address pro-actively.Last modified: 10 Feb, 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.
