From Skiff Mail to Zoho Mail

The process should have been a breeze and it was. Not only did I know what to do (I did the transfer a few months ago, so it was still fresh), but also Zoho setup wizard is fantastic. I didn’t anticipate the process to go so smoothly; and yet…

Bye bye GandiMail

I did not delete MX records immediately. Now, it is possible to have multiple MX records, but emails will be randomly split between the servers those records point to. Unless…

Replacing GandiMail with a new email service

Sorry, there is no TL;DR for this article. You will have to read the first half if you want to know which free email hosting provider (with custom domain name and unlimited aliases) I have opted for and the rest of the post if you are curious about the migration process.

SiteGround new Centralized DNS

Faster domain resolving, enhanced protection against DDoS, improved resilience and redundancy of the service, and easier management of multiple domains.

A (SiteGround) ticket to hell cont’d

After struggling with three ineffectual Gurus, I thought this ticket could not get worse. Guru S was about to prove me wrong. By bringing some modifications on his own initiative, he wreaked havoc on an already hopeless situation. This ticket was a goner for sure…

A (SiteGround) ticket to hell

While WordPress Multisite is a powerful feature, it requires higher technical knowledge. After configuring my network to work over HTTPS, I noticed an anomaly limited to the subsite (i.e. not affecting the main site). My inability to fix – or even comprehend – the problem leads me to post a ticket in SiteGround Help Desk…

Making my website work over HTTPS – the proper way

While there are plenty of articles on how to move WordPress from http:// to https://, the documentation on how to set up a brand new installation with an SLL certificate is rather scarce. As a result, I omitted a step, or more precisely took the wrong shortcut. When I wanted to rectify my mistake, it was too late. Was it?

To www or not to www?

Which between the www and non-www versions of the URL is best? How to implement your decision using WordPress? Can you guess which one I have chosen?
