А One-Click HTTPS Configurator for WordPress
Last month we announced that we had started issuing Let's Encrypt certificates automatically for all domains hosted on our servers. This month we make the second step towards a more universal HTTPS usage on our servers with the release of a one-click HTTPS switch for WordPress. We strongly encourage every WordPress user on our servers to take advantage of this option and to switch to HTTPS now. To learn how to do it, take a look at this blog post.
 
New Cloudflare CDN Features
We’ve just updated the Cloudflare plans of our customers. The SSL support is now included both in the Free and the Plus plans. It can be switched on from our cPanel interface by any Cloudflare user. Additionally, we now have a Web Application Firewall included in our Cloudflare Plus plan. It is a highly recommended option that can protect your site against multiple vulnerabilities.
Find out how to use the new features.
 
WordPress AutoUpdater Restarted
After the serious recent security issue with WordPress REST API, we decided to minimize the number of sites that remained outdated regardless of our autoupgrade feature. We switched on the updater for everyone and we changed the way people can turn off this feature. Now you can only skip one upcoming update from the interface. Full switch off is not recommended but can be requested from our support team. Read the whole news.
