Our anti-virus has just been upgraded to include malicious traffic detection (MTD).
It's a technology used in the security industry to look for suspicious connections to internet addresses. This means that the anti-virus on our servers is now able to actively detect bad connections.
An even more secure website!
We are proud to annouce the use of Let's Encrypt on all our hosted websites. This allows all our hosted sites to use SSL encryption for secure web browsing for their customers without having to pay for an expensive certificate.
So far with our testing of Let's Encrypt's certificates everything seems to be working well. They don't appear to function with very old versions of Internet Explorer or old Android built-in browsers, but this is to be expected. All modern browsers work wonderfully.
All Triple Point hosted websites having been enabled for HTTPS using the Let's Encrypt certificate.
All WOXIT hosted customers can rest easy in the knowledge that their websites are backed up every day, but as well as that they are stored offsite on a weekly and monthly basis, so if the worst happens everything can be up and running again quickly and with the latest copy of the website.
Some website hosting companies may charge extra for this service, but here at WOXIT we believe that you shouldn't have to worry about the how's and why's - we take care of that for you.
New to WOXIT? Have a look at some of our real customer websites today and see what you think, don't forget to check them out on all of your devices; PCs, Macs, iPhones and tablets. Remember your customers will be trying to access your website at their convenience, make sure that you have a website that works for you and them.
We have a few things in the pipe line at the moment, it seems that the winter is a busy time of year in the hosting industry! One the projects we can't wait to unveil is actually for an existing customer of Triple Point, in addition to their current website they wish to transfer and update their other website. We are currently in the process of transferring the content that they want to keep and writing them a brand new, secure and shiny website
Stay tuned as we'll release regular updates on our progress of this transfer.
Believe it or not, but some web hosting companies do not install anti-virus software on their servers. Here at WOXIT we believe that security should be done in a layered approach; preventation, detection and cure. This is why you'll find that all of our hosted websites are protected by industry-grade anti-virus.
We use Sophos who are a trusted and well-regarded security vendor who protect Linux, Mac, Windows and Android systems from malware and other threats. If you have a Mac, Android or like me, have a few Linux servers you can get Sophos anti-virus for free. https://www.sophos.com/en-us/products/free-tools.aspx
