Website Hosting

We like to help our customers understand the important aspects of website hosting and how that can affect their website. If a website hosting provider uses low-end servers or your server is not setup correctly then it can result in poor website performance. Hosting encompasses a range of areas including DNS, Security, Website Caching, Content Delivery Networks, Load Balancing, NGINX and Apache web servers. This section is dedicated to web hosting articles that we hope will help you understand what is available.

What is the Heartbleed OpenSSL venerability and how am I affected?

Heartbleed is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptography software that is used to encrypt communication between a user’s computer and a web server. The venerability could allow an attacker to steal information like usernames, passwords and cryptographic keys currently in use by the server. All my servers have been patched with the fixed version of openSSL and other security measures have been taken to re-secure everything.
