As some of you may have noticed, we are now publishing all of our content to several social media platforms thanks to the Jetpack plugin for WordPress. This is perhaps the single most valuable plug-in I’ve seen offering features such as free CDN for images, brute force attack protection, single sign on, downtime monitoring and notification, site stats and analytics, social media integration, automatic plug-in updating and much more.
Additionally, we’ve migrated our DNS provider from Arvixe to CloudFlare thanks to a tip from Mike at PowerShellStation. CloudFlare is a reverse proxy that offers a host of free network services like DNS, firewall, globally distributed caching and SSL.
Both CloudFlare and Jetpack have enterprise options that you can purchase (like data backups and 100% uptime guarantee for example), but what they offer for free is truly amazing and incredibly easy to configure.
