Updated: New Autoscalable Cloud on Linux Containers

new-cloud-mail

UPDATE: Thanks to the stable performance of the new Linux Containers Cloud and the positive feedback we have received so far, we have decided to migrate all our Cloud VPS accounts to it. The migration will be implemented in batches in April and all affected clients will receive individual warning emails with information regarding the migration of their accounts. We will discontinue the maintenance of the old Cloud VPS platform after the migration process is over.

Last year our team worked very hard on developing a new cloud platform based on Linux containers. We saw a great potential in this technology, as it was much more efficient, faster and easily scalable than the traditional virtualization methods. Today, we are happy to announce the official launch of this technology for the SiteGround cloud accounts.

Time to Say Goodbye to SSL Version 3.0

ssl-farewell

It is no secret that securing your client’s data is an ongoing process and not something that you can simply install on a server/platform. That is why security solutions and protocols evolve all the time and developers frequently release new versions. The two cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet are TLS and SSL. The latest version of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL version 3.0) is the predecessor of TLS and is nearly 15 years old. So it was only a matter of time for someone to find the next big issue related to the SSL protocol. Yesterday Bodo Möller from the Google Security Team wrote a blog post about a new vulnerability in the design of SSL version 3.0. The vulnerability allows attackers to calculate the plain text of secure connections.
