Many years back, I have migrate all my websites from Hostgator to Knownhost hosting. I am disappointed with many incidents cause during the time when my sites were hosted with Hostgator. This leaded me to do some research and finally end up choosing Knownhost as my web hosting server. Till date, I am still with Knownhost. The server performance and support/service are good so far πŸ™‚

Another Good Thing about KnownHost

This post is not about reviewing KnownHost web hosting. Is about how good I feel when I received an email today from KnownHost. The email informs me that there is some upgrade to my plan, though not not critical but I feel good after knowing this. This is not the first time such upgrade happened. Now and then, KnownHost will upgrade goodies for my hosting plan for existing customers without any additional cost. Unlike some hosting campaniles, they only care for new customers. Goodies all goes to NEW customers, for existing customer, well they don’t really care.

Automatically applied SSL Certificate on Your Websites

Around the month of Aug 2017, I have read that SSL Certificate can be part of the equation that affect Google search ranking. I researching around to understand how to install such certs. Out of curiosity, I try to access one of my site with https. Surprisingly, I realized that all might sites have already setup with such certs. Wow, I thought. Save my time πŸ˜› I don’t even knew when are these are setup. You can try to access this site via https://midlifemag.com.
