Throw Out The Manual

Rip off the tags, unscrew the bottom, and throw out the manual. Because there's nothing duller than following the rules.


Search and Replace within HTML files

This is a quick writeup of a challenge I ran into yesterday on a support ticket that I figured worth documenting here. Someone was moving an account to a new server and had setup a development URL to test all the files. After uploading them things seemed to work somewhat

Beyond LAMP

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 20:31:29 GMT

Since Reclaim Hosting was founded in 2013, cPanel and the traditional "LAMP" stack have been at its core. LAMP is an acronym for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP and some of the more familiar applications you love like WordPress and Omeka run that tech stack. This comes with its

Blog Facelift

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 01:15:51 GMT

This week has been a bit of a return to the blog. It had started to become a running joke in the office that perhaps my posts should stop syndicating since things had gone stale around these parts. I may be off Twitter for good, but this thing is still

Becoming a Spartan

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 20:31:14 GMT

Late summer of 2015 seems like a long time ago. That was when my wife and I, after purchasing a box of Krispie Kreme donuts, decided to join a local gym. I was skeptical that it would make a difference, but my wife insisted that we talk to a trainer

Domains 2017 Conversation with Tom Woodward

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 19:26:50 GMT

This past Friday we had the pleasure of talking with Tom Woodward, Associate Director of Learning Innovation at the ALT Lab at Virginia Commonwealth University. Tom spearheads a lot of the faculty development work borne out of their massive (and I don't use that term lightly) and growing WordPress Multisite

A New Venture

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 03:50:45 GMT

Ok now that the clickbait title is out of the way, stop freaking out. I'm still the Co-founder of Reclaim Hosting and have absolutely no plans for people to be rid of me so easily just yet. That being said, it was high time that I confessed to a new

Ping Pong

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 02:21:41 GMT

Sometimes feels like there's some ridiculous equation in my head that forces me to think that the longer I go without writing, the more profound whatever post I have in my head needs to be.

Talk about bullshit. This post is not the profound one. But it is one step

Quick Documentation Workflows with Clarify

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 01:19:23 GMT

At Reclaim Hosting we've jumped between a few different documentation platforms over the years, from Zendesk's native "Help Center" to static generated content using MkDocs, a dynamic site with a flat file system using Grav, to more recently deciding that our community forums which run Discourse could be

Investing in Community

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 05:12:34 GMT

I recently received a support ticket, not so much asking for support, but rather wondering about the status of and why it wasn't promoted more. The person pointed out that it wasn't really linked anywhere or mentioned as far as they could tell, which was absolutely

Federated Choral Explanations for Documentation

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 15:48:38 GMT

I've recently been thinking more and more about documentation and the ways in which Reclaim Hosting as well as the growing number of schools doing Domain of One's Own answer the common "How do I X?" questions that come up. While there are certainly plenty of unique scenarios

So apparently emoji domains are a thing, though a complicated one at that. I blame equal parts boredom and Bud Hunt (a very persuasive individual) for registering one last night. Here's the skinny on the how and why.

First, how do you even do this? Well emoji can be rendered

Running a Jekyll Site on Reclaim Hosting

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:45:22 GMT

This weekend I decided to experiment with a feature we have enabled on some of our servers that is sort of an unsung hero for advanced users (so advanced I hadn't taken the time to understand how it works!). Jekyll is a static site generator that has grown in popularity

Reclaim Your Domain Web Series

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:59:20 GMT

A few weeks ago I decided to start putting together some targeted screencasts from the standpoint of building a website from scratch using Reclaim Hosting. It's one thing to have lots of written documentation (and we've got that in spades at but another to sit back

Site Publisher for cPanel

Tue, 03 May 2016 19:23:31 GMT

As a company, Reclaim Hosting is heavily invested in the cPanel software to drive a decent user experience for building on the web. It's been interesting to see them evolve the product after what honestly seemed like years of stagnation. The x3 theme which was still the default just a

Embracing a Quantified Self

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 16:30:02 GMT

I'm equal parts fascinated and horrified by the "Internet of Things" movement. As someone who can't resist playing with the shiny, I love the idea of connected devices. In practicality it leads to situations like this:
