Happy belated 2012 from HostNine. For the last couple months of 2011, we’ve been collecting and posting a wide range of links on our various social media channels. We want to share helpful resources with our customers (and passers-by) to deepen their existing knowledge of important things like content creation, WordPress, web design best practices, SEO and more. We want to help you make your website (or someone else’s) the best it can be in the new year and beyond.
This flexible, free and extremely popular (over 65 million downloads as of December 2011) content management system is the first choice for many Webmasters and bloggers. This list of links covers everything from security best practices to plug-ins and site optimization.
