Server Migration / Upgrade Notice (198.1.103.227)

Our network will be undergoing server maintenance/migration. We will be installing a new racing engine under the hood to power the sites!

In order to ensure the long term reliability of your website we have been working hard on your behalf for the past months to create a brand new server infrastructure with the redundancy and scalability that will serve you far into the future. There may be some elements that are temporarily inconvenient and frustrating for you over the next few days of migration. We are really sorry for those things in advance, but this upgrade is absolutely necessary and good for your website long term.

Any security updates it is necessary for us to upgrade the version in order to continue to bring you a service which closes the loops on security short comings, bugs and other potential vulnerabilities. You should not experience any interruptions in service or down times related to this MySQL update.

New server will be on CloudLinux. 

What is CloudLinux OS?

CloudLinux OS is the leading platform for multitenancy. It improves server stability, density, and security by isolating each tenant and giving them allocated server resources.

It isolates each customer into a separate “Lightweight Virtualized Environment” (LVE), which partitions, allocates, and limits server resources, like memory, CPU, and connections, for each tenant. This ensures that tenants cannot jeopardize the stability of your servers, causing all sites to slow down or even come to a halt. CloudLinux OS also “cages” tenants from one another to avoid security breaches. This way, unstable scripts or malware are not able to sprawl across your customer sites, causing severe harm.

New Server Feature: 

 1). Using PHP Selector

PHP Selector lets you select default PHP version, as well as modules that will be available to user out of the box.
Inside cPanel, User will be able to change PHP version they would have:

2). CageFS
CageFS uniquely encapsulates each customer, preventing users from seeing each other and viewing sensitive information. It prevents a large number of attacks, including most of the privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks.

3). MySQL Governor
MySQL governor is software to monitor and restrict MySQL usage in shared hosting environment. So your website will not go down if other user mis-using server resource.

4). SecureLinks
SecureLinks is a kernel-level technology that prevents all known symbolic link (symlink) attacks. It enhances the security level of the servers even further and prevents malicious users from creating symbolic link files (where an attacker tricks Apache Web server to read some other user’s PHP config files).

5). Attracta SEO Tools
Attracta’s powerful SEO tools integrated perfectly with the cPanel web hosting control panel.

6). Softaculous Auto Scripts
Softaculous is the leading Auto Installer having 402 great scripts, 1115 PHP Classes. Softaculous Auto Installer easily integrates into cPanel Control Panels .

7). Others

  1. New server will have completely optimized with CloudFlare Technology.
  2. It will have latest updated CLamAV, LMD (Linux Malware Detect) and Rootkit Hunter Anti-Virus.
  3. All updated softwares.
  4. FTP Harding, Not anonymous login can access. Only allowed secured SFTP available.

  7. And much more…
