comment Smush.It or similar lossless image shrinking with API
The images are around 200-300kb. The API limits it to 150kb or requires payment. As this is for occasional use the pricing scheme isn't ideal.

comment How to use the domain of my old site to my new site?
Great advise, however remember to look before you leap, test it works by editing your local hosts file (/etc/hosts, %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, etc) and putting in the new domain/IP pair.

comment How can I make my binary file is served as binary and not text when user choose “Save Linked File As…” in Safari?
Unless you convince Safari users to change their browser, or Apple to adjust the behaviour then you'll need to decide whether to disable context menus for links in Safari or educate users to remove the .txt suffix for unknown filetypes. Its not possible to have your cake and eat it in this situation. This solution just stops the context menu (the method of triggering this unwanted download behaviour) in Safari browsers.

comment URL Rewrite to subdomains?
Cannot change the case of categories (without inserting each one manually) and cannot deal with spaces easily. Look at it in reverse, given a URL how does the web server know what the underlying page should be? Changing domain/subdomain without redirects can also unravel site security.

Bottom line is that you shouldn't be getting 405s. Good luck.

comment How to check on the 99.99% Up time Guarantee?
@richaux won't move it to an answer, as I want to see how those who persist with upholding quoted SLAs manage to do it. There is a part of me that wishes it isn't a case of "resolved: won't fix".
