SEO Provider Trust Challenges?

Hi Folks- I have a website that was designed and is hosted by the SEO company I hired years ago. They
have gotten really good results for me but unfortunately over that amount of time I have no real biz relationship
with them which is why I need your help with this question.

I have a new website on squarespace that I am close to launching and my SEO providers are telling me it will cost more
in SEO dollars to rank that site because they are saying squarespace is harder to rank than their customized
cms sites.

My challenge is two things. One I am not a fan of their design and the second being I am not sure if that is true.

Would anyone in the community know if SEO is harder to achieve with square-space over a cms site?

Really appreciate any feedback or advice:)

How to transfer DNS records to new DNS provider with very little or no downtime in resolution

I’d like to transfer DNS records from Network Solutions to DNS Made Easy, mainly to take advantage of “DNS Failover” provided by DNS Made Easy to automatically fail a couple of key A records over to new IPs in my data center where I replicate servers to for DR if DNS Made Easy senses that the primary IP on prem is unavailable.

This guide is helpful, but I don’t understand the first step regarding TTLs. My understanding of TTLs has always been that hosts cache records for an amount of time as told by the TTL when querying records. If that understanding is correct, how can I have any control over expiration?

My plan is to:

  1. Create new zone files on new DNS provider at my leisure
  2. Change existing nameservers at the registrar to the new DNS Made Easy nameservers at night, cross my fingers and wait for morning

What can I do in relation to the TTLs to improve my chances of making this seamless?

Use MOODLE as oAuth2 or OpenID provider

I found in the MOODLE documentation some resources on how to include external oAuth2 / openID providers, such as Facebook or Google.

However, I’d like to use our MOODLE instance as oAuth2 / openID provider for another application (either of them would be fine for us).

My question is, if this feature is even implemented or if it’s just not documented.

How do I know which provider is used when viewing a certificate in the store?

In the certificate store, how do I know which provider is used when viewing a certificate?

The provider in this context is the Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP).

For example, you can see the following providers being used:

  • Microsoft Strong Cryptographic Provider
  • Microsoft Enhanced RSA and AES Cryptographic Provider

when running commmand:

certutil -store My 

in a command prompt window.
