WP SSD Storage Increase

WP Bubble Increases Storage On All Plans

We are constantly making changes at WP Bubble and trying to always improve our plans, optimize them for the best fit for its usage. In reviewing, we noticed that our SSD stoage for each plan was too small for the value, and decided to increase it. We still encourage you to offload your media files to a CDN to save on storage. Keeping your files on a CDN will keep your bubble as optimized as possible, as the CDN is designed to load worldwide and deliver results much faster depending on the region of the visitor, rather than reaching out to a single server. read more

WP Bubble Adds Max Execution Time

WP Bubble Execution Time Assigned To All Bubbles Plans

WP Bubble has added a max execution time for how long PHP scripts can run. By default, all plans will run a PHP script for up to 30 seconds. Rarely will a script ever take any longer than that, however there may be plugins that require more than 30 seconds to run and will display a warning to increase the max_execution_time flag. read more

WP Bubble Ditching The Credit System

Altering the Credit System On WP Bubble

While nothing is actually changing, except the fact that we are changing the word “credit” to “amount”, our users were getting confused on what the credit system was and how it worked. The verbiage was simply: One dollar equals one credit. Instead, we are going to call everything as it is and revert back to a “dollar system”. read more

WP Bubble Offers Tiny Static Plan

WP Bubble Static Plan

With our former lowest plan costing around $0.25 per day or $7.50 a month, we wanted to come up with something for web designers or developers who only needed a website for testing purposes or have a mostly static website with just a few visitors. As a result, we came up with the Static/Tiny plan. read more

WP Bubble Easy SSL

WP Bubble One-Click SSL

Google tends to control how the Internet works, how it is indexed, and how we are all seen. With the majority of people using Google as their primary search engine, it is no wonder that we all tend to comply and do what Google asks of us. Several years ago, Google was pushing towards making the Internet more secure and requiring all websites, especially those that did business online, specifically those that took payments from processors such as Paypal or Stripe, to have an SSL certification.

This SSL certification is noted by a lock sign on the address bar with the words, “Secure” right next to it. Some browsers are different, but that lock sign is universal for SSL. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. What it is and what it does is that it ensures all data transferred to and from your website, from the server to the browser, ad vice versa, is encrypted.

This means that any scripts attempting to listen in will be unable to read that data. Hence: credit card information is unable to be read because it’s encrypted by the browser and sent to a server and then the data is received back that a payment was made and everything is good to go.

SSL, however, from most web hosts, tends to be a headache in itself, and turns off the  average blogger and business owner from even bothering to add it. Luckily, there are many hosts now offering it for free, but in many cases: you will not get an SSL for free on most shared hosts.  Though, if you prefer to try a shared host that has free SSL certificates, we do recommend DreamHost.

Most others do require a payment of $60 or more per year and many more require several days to actually implement it. Why do companies charge? SSL is technically free itself, but it is the work required to create the certificate that most hosts charge for when implementing it and the fact that most SSL needs to be renewed at least once a year in order to prevent hackers from breaking the code and being able to hack that data.

Thus, implementing an SSL certificate might require some technical knowledge and generates a random code is used as the hash key that encrypts the data.  Here is what it  looks like after it is generated:
