Please be aware. A phishing attack is being discussed in the security community today that allows an attacker to register a domain that appears identical to a known safe domain in the web browser. They can use this domain to launch phishing attacks that trick you into handing over your username and password information.
This attack makes it impossible to tell if you are on a safe site or a malicious site by looking at the location bar in your browser.
This affects the current versions of Chrome and Firefox. Click here for more info.
How to fix this in Firefox:
In your firefox location bar, type ‘about:config’ without quotes.
Do a search for ‘punycode’ without quotes.
You should see a parameter titled: network.IDN_show_punycode
Change the value from false to true.
Can I fix this if I use Chrome?
Currently we are not aware of a manual fix in Chrome for this. Chrome have already released a fix in their ‘Canary’ release, which is their test release. This should be released to the general public within the next few days.
Bandwidth, measured in bits, are grouped in bytes to construct text and other information that’s relayed between the computer and the internet. Every stored character is equivalent to one byte. One GB (Gigabyte) is the same as 1,024 megabytes, or a million kilobytes, this is about the size of one full-length movie.
There are a lot of byte measurements, and after Gigabyte, you will get the following Terabytes, Petabytes, Exabytes, Zettabytes, and Yottabytes at 10248 YiB
Traffic refers to the total number of bits being transferred over the network connection at any given time. Comparable to highway traffic, the speed of data transfer on the internet is greatly dependent upon the amount of traffic generated by all users who are sharing the same connection. When there are many users transferring data at the same time, the traffic can become very slow to allow each client to perform transfers.
Increasing the bandwidth broadens the internet highway and lets more traffic move faster.
Whenever someone visits your site, it’s considered traffic.
Managed WordPress hosting is a big deal — so it’s no surprise then, that just about every hosting company offering these types of services is continuing to iterate and improve on them to try and get ahead of its rivals. One such hosting provider — one of the biggest in the business in fact — is DSL Wizz
DSL Wizz first ventured into the managed WordPress hosting market back in mid-2013 with Dreamhost, with a service dubbed DreamPress. However, by the time DreamPress was officially launched, it was already a little outmatched by some of its rivals and never really seemed to receive as much attention as it perhaps deserved.
This time, DreamHost and DSL Wizz are back with DREAMpress V2 — a much stronger product boasting a number of features of considerable interest: such as VPS only servers, PHP 5.5, OpCache and optional HHVM (currently in beta).
Let’s fire one of these new systems up, create a brand new site and do a little testing…
We’re making some changes to our email policy starting January 5, 2015 in order to improve email performance.
Large mailboxes can cause serious performance degradation for not only our servers, but also for email clients. In order to help keep everything running smoothly, we will be automating the deletion of mail in Spam, Trash, Junk and Deleted Mail folders that are older than 30 days.
The initial batch of deletions will occur on January 5, 2015. From that point forward, any email in your Trash and Spam folders will be deleted based on the age of the messages.
Please take some time to ensure that you, as well as any users of mailboxes under your domains, are not storing important messages in these folders. If you need to archive messages, create another directory for these messages.
