As all of our servers use Nginx rather than Apache, there is no such thing as an .htaccess file on our VPS servers. Instead, Nginx has a very simple and streamlined system where most “rules” can be input directly into the “server block” code which is similar to a virtual host file. Things like permalink settings work automatically just be changing them in your WordPress admin panel. Other common needs for htaccess like gzip or expires headers are already input by the LittleBizzy team in your Nginx server block. Additionally, 301 redirects should not be put into Nginx or htaccess rules as its rather messy first of all, but secondly because there are limits to how many redirects htaccess can handle properly. For this reason, “big” redirects like a change in domain should be handled by Nginx or CloudFlare where the dozens of hundreds of small (page, etc) redirects should be handled by a free WordPress plugin such as Simple 301 Redirects.Last modified: 14 Aug, 2015https://www.littlebizzy.com/?p=3369
"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.
