The world is going mobile – don’t stay behind

Do you know that feeling when you’re not in front of your computer, but you need to find something online quickly – you thank God for your smart phone. It has everything you need in the palm of your hand. You start browsing on your phone, looking up what you need online.

A new Malware Protection Service Now Available

We’re excited to announce our new service – HackAlert.  HackAlert is the latest malware detection and early warning system available out there, powered by our partner GlobalSign-one of the longest established Certification Authorities and specialists in SSL security.

When visiting a flagged website, its visitors and potential customers will see worrying warnings about the site potentially harming their computers.  In both cases, you can expect a steady drop in your website traffic, at the least.
