Mshini receives the Yoast stamp of approval
We’ve made the list!! Which list you ask?? The good folks at Yoast are on a mission to help WordPress users WHIP their WordPress hosting into shape!
With over 3 million active installs, Yoast SEO is one of the most popular and downloaded plugins for WordPress. Team Yoast publish regular and super informative blog posts on how to improve your site’s SEO, and their latest drive is to ensure that you choose a quality host. A web host provides the engine that your site runs on (their words, not ours) and choosing a well-regarded and forward-thinking host is key to ensuring the security, speed, and future-proofing of your site.
As of Yoast SEO 4.5, administrators of sites running on PHP 5.2 will receive a notice in their dashboards, warning them that their website runs on an older, unsupported, version of PHP. The notice, which will be big, ugly, and non-dismissible, will explain why the site administrator should upgrade the PHP version of the site. Yoast is doing this mainly to improve the security and speed of WordPress sites. The notice will also encourage people to contact their host if they don’t know how to upgrade their version of PHP.
If your current web host isn’t willing to work with you, or if you’re just not feeling valued at your current host, it may be time to think about moving hosts. Yoast have vetted and compiled a list of web hosts that have received the Yoast stamp of approval. We at Mshini are extremely pleased to announce that we’re on the list.
