dedicated server

LOS ANGELES, CA – LayerHost, an IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) company, and a premier server hosting and IP transit provider with an emphasis on DDoS mitigation, is celebrating the rebranding from its former name and shift of focus, Global Frag Networks and gaming servers, respectively. A launch party is planned at Mrs. Fish, 448 S Hill St. Los Angeles, CA 90013 on Thursday, January 10th from 6PM to 10PM. The mood will be set by an in-house DJ, and the dance floor will subsequently be open for business. Delicious hors d-oeuvres will be provided by Mrs. Fish from their signature menu, and the open bar will feature cocktails concocted by the mixologists of the establishment. There will be a raffle with prizes, including an Apple watch, an iPad, as well as a special prize which will be announced at the event. All guests will receive a custom LayerHost branded swag bag full of awesome goodies. Entry to the event will require a ticket, so please RSVP at http://launch.layerhost.com.

The roots of the company can be traced back to 2008, back when it was called Global Frag Networks. The operations of Global Frag Networks were rooted deeply in the game hosting industry of the time, serving as the web hosting provider for such games as: Counter Strike 1.6, Day of Defeat and Team Fortress Classic. With such a direct connection to video games, the name “Global Frag Networks” was strangely appropriate. But as the gaming industry privatized the hosting of their games, that is, game developers began to host their own servers for its multiplayer matches, a necessary pivot was desperately needed (and desired). In 2012, still under the name Global Frag Networks, the services provided by the company began to expand to include colocation, IP transit, as well as DDoS mitigation. As the company outgrew its previous operations, the same operations which its foundation was built upon, it became evident that a new name had to be created. Welcome into the arena, LayerHost, as the complete rebranding of Global Frag Networks. The growth of LayerHost saw many challenges and accomplishments, and the lessons learned throughout ultimately led to the optimization of how the company does business today. LayerHost has learned from its journey, and ultimately, has the same priorities in mind which made operations under Global Frag Networks successful: the focus on the clients, as well as their complete satisfaction.


Given this in mind, this launch party is a toast from LayerHost to all of the guests in attendance, and to those who unfortunately will not be able not make it. It is a big “thank you” to all of the clients who made Global Frag Networks successful and allowed it to transition to LayerHost, those customers who still are with the company today, and to all of the amazing new faces which LayerHost would be humbled and excited if given the opportunity to partner in mutual growth. Also, it highlights the efforts of the founder and CEO, Mohamad Kazah, who started the company as the aforementioned Global Frag Networks and now, has a small team of hard-working individuals with LayerHost. And because of the company growing to a state where there are several dedicated employees, it is also a celebration of the team’s hard work. But most of all, to the old friends and the new friends LayerHost will meet at the event, it serves as a way to say a big thank you, as well as a session to relax, enjoy good food, treats, and company.

Please RSVP at: http://launch.layerhost.com

The venue chosen for the event is the exquisite sushi restaurant, Mrs. Fish located in the heart of Downtown, Los Angeles. When you walk inside, the magnificent plethora of artwork on display by artists from Japan makes it difficult to establish the line between restaurant and museum. However, when you see the presentation of the food mimicking the real-life art on display at Mrs. Fish, only then does it become evident that there needs no distinguishing; it’s both. LayerHost chose this venue not only because they believe the guests will have an amazing experience there during the launch party, but because the ambience and je ne sais quoi mirrors that how the company interacts with its clients and operates. At LayerHost, even though the provided services such as: dedicated server hosting, IP transit, DDoS mitigation and VPS hosting are equivalent, if not better than the other providers, they pride themselves on giving the customers an experience that is hard to beat. This is possible because at LayerHost, the satisfaction rating of client is the quantifiable measure which comes before revenue and quotas. When you partner with LayerHost and and benefit from their products and unmatched reliability, you not only get an amazing product, but an unforgettable experience as well.

While the food of Mrs. Fish seeks to titillate your taste buds and the artwork, the senses, LayerHost operates to ensure that the care that their clients receive after the transaction is nothing short of a tender, familiar interaction. In this sense, the launch party for the rebranding of LayerHost is nothing more than a welcoming family gathering, complete with great food, elegant drinks, great music, great company and thoughtful gifts put together by the team. LayerHost hopes to see all of you in attendance and cannot wait to spend time with all of you!

SOUTHFIELD, MI – Future Hosting, a managed VPS and dedicated server hosting provider, advises Drupal hosting clients who have not patched their site recently to check for signs of compromise or malware infection. Drupal sites that have not been patched against the “Drupalgeddon2” vulnerabilities may have already been compromised.

The Drupal project released a series of patches to fix a remote code vulnerability at the end of March. Further patches will be released on April 25 and sites should be upgraded when the new patches are available.

“Future Hosting is home to thousands of Drupal sites and we’re seeing a constant flood of attacks using this vector,“ said Maulesh Patel, VP of Operations of Future Hosting, “The attacks are so widespread that it is unlikely that any unpatched Drupal site on the web will escape being compromised.”

More than a million websites are based on Drupal. The vulnerability can be used to gain complete access to a Drupal site’s code and data by sending a payload to a known URL — a process that is easy to automate. Patched sites are safe, but unpatched sites are being hacked by automated botnets.

Hosting clients with sites based on Drupal 7 should upgrade to at least Drupal 7.58. Sites based on Drupal 8.5.X should be updated to Drupal 8.5.3. Patches have been released for Drupal 8.4, but earlier 8.X versions are unsupported. Patches are available for Drupal 6 via the Drupal 6 LTS project.

Future Hosting advises that Drupal sites that have not already been patched should be checked for the presence of malware using a reliable malware scanning tool.

About Future Hosting, LLC
Founded in 2001, Future Hosting is a privately held leading Internet solutions provider specializing in managed hosting, including Dedicated Servers, Virtual Private Servers, and Hybrid Virtual Private Servers. The company has built a strong reputation for its high-quality service, innovative pricing models, and 3-hour Service Level Agreement. Future Hosting is based in Southfield, Michigan.
