NEW SERVICE: Dedicated SSL Boosts Reputation

Yet another new service announced at LittleBizzy this year as we roll out dedicated SSL certificates today. The truth is that, despite tons of talk regarding SSL in the past few years, the topic is still a big source of confusion among website owners and developers, and thus continues to be one of the biggest […]

New Service: CloudFlare Pro (WAF, Compression)

It was only a few days ago that LittleBizzy announced WP StageCoach, and we are already back announcing another new service! We are proud to introduce CloudFlare Pro, another new partnership service that we are now offering, beginning immediately.

Default WordPress Installation Files & Directories

Below is a complete list of default WordPress files and directories that should exist on your server after WordPress installation is complete.

New Service: DNSSEC Will Protect Your Domain

We are happy to announce a new DNSSEC service for all LittleBizzy managed hosting clients. For those not familiar, DNSSEC is an increasingly popular security feature that protects your website’s domain from hijacking and other DNS exploits.

Install A Free Self-Signed SSL Certificate On Nginx

SSL. It’s the word of the year, it would seem, ever since Google’s late 2014 announcement that installing an SSL certificate on your website would effect rankings in their search engine algorithm. And all for the better, as I’ve written about before: traditional SEO is dead and things are finally starting to get exciting again […]

Over-Reliance On FTP

FTP is a fascinating technology, if only because its history is so rife with ambiguity. The modern FTP protocol (RFC 959) was actually invented way back in 1985, a full ten years before its more-famous cousin HTTP (1.0) was launched in 1996. Over the past few decades, however, HTTP began evolving much faster than FTP […]

Nginx Server Block For WordPress Websites

Up until a few years ago, installing WordPress on an Nginx server still tended to be a little bit janky. In the early days, many websites were forced to deal with ugly permalink schemes that included the “/index.php/” root in every single link. Even after that hurdle was eliminated, other issues existed such as poor […]

SEO is dead. (Long live SEO… a case study.)

For the past 3 to 4 months, I’ve been running an experiment on the largest freelancing website in the world, oDesk, focused entirely on one thing: website loading speed. Specifically, I sought out clients who were in the market for website migrations, security improvements, SSL certificates, and on-site optimization services, and offered them the following […]
