UPDATE: we are now offering/installing cURL on ALL client servers at LittleBizzy due to several popular plugins refusing to do away with it… we hope within the next few years we can 100% stop using cURL on our client servers, though.
At LittleBizzy we don’t include any PHP modules in our default server setups to maintain higher security and performance standards. The more software you install on a server (or computer) the higher the risk is for getting hacked, exploited with malware, or otherwise. It means one more application that requires monitoring, regular software upgrades, and so forth. cURL in particular regularly has security vulnerabilities, not necessarily because of its own fault (but sometimes) but because of the poor coding included in many WordPress themes and plugins. This opens your server up to DDOS attacks, exploits, injections, and worse. If you require cURL, please ask us to install it on your server (each time). WordPress has not required cURL for a few years already, so any theme or plugin still requiring cURL is in fact BREAKING WordPress coding standards.Last modified: 20 Mar, 2016https://www.littlebizzy.com/?p=3684
"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.
