We are now offering Wildcard SSL certificates from inside our web hosting Control Panel. Just like the regular SSL certificates, they encrypt the connection between the website and the visitor, making it much safer to transmit sensitive information like login details or credit card numbers.
Wildcard SSL certificates are especially useful when you have one domain name and you want to secure multiple subdomains. Let's say that you have a large portal with a web store, a forum and an admin area:
my-site.com - your main website
forum.my-site.com - a forum
store.my-site.com - a web store
admin.my-site.com - an admin area for users to manage their profiles
If you want to secure each one of these subdomains with regular SSL certificates, you will have to buy a total of three certificates - one for each subdomain. With a Wildcard SSL certificate, you can secure all three subdomains, as well as any additional subdomains you add later on.
You can get a Wildcard SSL certificate from the SSL certificates section under the My Domains menu in our web hosting Control Panel.
All our servers in the US data centre are now part of our new cloud hosting platform whose main goal is to minimize all possible downtimes and to offer a significant increase in the performance of both your Control Panel and your website.
Here is just a short list of the benefits you will enjoy in our US data centre with our cloud hosting platform:
Enhanced service stability - we store different services (emails, MySQL databases, etc.) on different servers so as to make our overall platform less vulnerable to hack/DDoS attacks.
Faster servers - we have recently upgraded our network to 10 Gbps, which means that our servers are faster than ever and so will be your website
Faster maintenance - by ensuring spare servers, we have simplified server maintenance procedures and hence minimized frustrating service interruptions and downtimes
Migration to SSDs - all web hosting users who are using less than 1 GB of storage space are now located on fast SSDs. This means that they will enjoy much faster read/write speeds and faster website speeds. On time, we are planning to move all cloud hosting accounts to SSDs as well.
Web accelerators (Memcached, Varnish, Node.js) - our web acceleration tools will help you boost the speed of your website even further.
