comment Can I move a clients website from yahoo hosting to godaddy hosting without losing google page rankings?
I'm pretty sure google page rankings depend on the URL, not on the server where the URL is hosted, and I assume you'll be using the same URL?

comment Someone else set up a trial Google Apps account on my domain. How can I get Google to disable it?
There's nothing in any of the emails that says "if you didn't request this, click here?" Anyone can create an unverified Google Apps account for you... but Google won't make it "live" until you verify it (or, in this case, anti-verify it)

comment Prevent search bots from indexing server (sub)domain name
When you find your server's name does it say "A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt – learn more."? I don't think you can make Google not index the domain name itself.

comment Strange IP address appended to my website's domain
Are you using a plugin that caches for you or something? @closetnoc did you mean a CDN?

comment How to set up wildcard subdomain CNAME records for a multi-tenant app?
OK, that sounds like you have an HTTP redirect in place, which means it's not a DNS issue at all. If you're willing to share the name of the actual domain, I can give you more details. If not, you might try a tool like "curl" to see what's going on.

Use something like dns.squish.net to see how the root servers are delegating your domains.

You have <VirtualHost>(stuff)</VirtualHost> somewhere in your config file right?

comment How to set up wildcard subdomain CNAME records for a multi-tenant app?
Have you 1) allowed for DNS propagation, or 2) done a 'dig' directly from the root servers (or the defined nameservers) to confirm that it will eventually work across the Internet? Do you do your own DNS or use a third party to do so?

comment How is the number of unique user larger than users?
This doesn't help you, but google maps sometimes tells me it takes longer to reach a destination if there's no traffic than if there is traffic.

comment In my mobile application should I hard code the IP address or a domain name?
Hardcoding IP addresses is almost always a bad idea, especially since it's so easy to get DNS these days.

comment Find website reviews not on website?
Just to clarify, where exactly did you put the quotation marks, if you used quotation marks at all? Quoting the entire phrase won't work. Also, are you willing to share the actual website name or an example of another website that also does this?

comment Why are .io domain names so expensive?
As you probably know .IO originally belonged to the British Indian Ocean Territory, and thus ultimately to the United Kingdom. Whoever they chose to sell it to decides on the price. Maybe they feel the domain is worth more because it happens to match the name of one of Jupiter's moons?

comment Removing business information from all sorts of business directories
You could google for the wrong number, find the sites where it's listed and "shotgun" email the WHOIS administrators for those domains. It's not 100%, but it should help.

comment Webserver: Use Windows (Dedicated/Host) or should I create a Linux VM?
Erm, I don't think question is opinion-based. In general, VMs are less efficient that actual hardware. Of course, I'd advise a Linux dedicated server, but the question of VM efficiency doesn't appear to be opinion-based (VMs are inherently less efficient).

comment Mirror website accross hosting
What sort of changes will occur on private.com? You can always edit and instantly mirror, but is there more going on? Will public.com also be changing? For example, will people be posting comments or writing articles on public.com? If so, should these comments/articles be wiped out when you mirror?

comment Mirror website accross hosting
Do you mean live mirroring or mirroring at specific times? If you just need to mirror files, you might look at github.com/barrycarter/bcapps/blob/master/bc-mirror-server.pl which is how I maintain my website. I store it locally on my computer and mirror after making changes.
