RESTON, VA – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ:INAP), a leading provider of high-performance data center services including colocation, cloud, and network, is significantly expanding its presence in Phoenix, a booming, rapidly growing U.S. data center market, through a master lease for a Tier 3 design data center located at 2500 West Frye Road in Chandler, AZ. A leading private real estate partner recently acquired the property, and a Fortune 100 financial services company will remain the anchor tenant. Through this long-term lease, INAP expands its Phoenix footprint, adding approximately 200,000 gross square feet with up to 10 MW of highly redundant critical power capacity in the 4th fastest growing net power absorption market.

“We are extremely excited to establish a flagship presence fully controlled by INAP, including Bank of America as the anchor tenant. This expansion adds much needed capacity in the vibrant and highly strategic Phoenix/Chandler market,” stated Corey J. Needles, INAP U.S. Sr. Vice President and General Manager. “This facility gives INAP a powerful competitive position within this market, requires no upfront cash investment, enabling us to light customers on day one to support growth, and is a great location that gives us options for potential consolidation of our currently 100% utilized Phoenix footprint. We expect increasing contribution from this key market going forward.”


The new Chandler data center offers some of the most robust security, electrical and mechanical infrastructure in the market today. Phoenix is a major destination for new investment and migration by companies, particularly from California, looking to improve their disaster recovery. The State of Arizona has also created a favorable tax environment specifically for data center operations through the use of tax incentives, which is drawing hyper-scalers to its major markets and benefits INAP in turn.

“For the last 10 years, as we’ve built WordPress themes, plugins and services, one thing has always been missing— hosting. We’ve sought to build relationships with all of the popular and good (while they are still good) WordPress hosts out there but, frankly, it’s been a giant struggle and frustration for us (and likely our customers, too),” said Cory Miller, General Manager of iThemes. “In January, iThemes was acquired by Liquid Web, one of the premier managed hosting companies, and with it, the opportunity to create a complete WordPress hosting service with all of the products and support iThemes customers have come to love and trust,” said Miller.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, today announced the launch of their second availability zone (“Availability Zone B”) in Malaysia to expand its cloud footprint and bolster its cloud capacity, serving increasing customer demand locally and in the region. The new zone complements Availability Zone A which was launched last year in heightening cloud security and ensuring business continuity through resilient cloud infrastructure.

Alibaba Cloud will also continue to invest in Malaysia by setting up the first cloud based Anti-DDoS Scrubbing Center in August. The center will mitigate risks and offer customers the highest level of protection against stronger DDoS attacks. The new center will feature a variety of security functions including Anti-DDoS Pro, a service that defends against all types of DDoS attacks.


“I welcome Alibaba Cloud’s effort to further support and enhance Malaysia’s digital economy. The world moves ever closer towards e-commerce and we see a considerable surge in demand by local industries to participate in this new economy on a global platform. Malaysia is now pushing ahead with efforts to strengthen its infrastructure with a view towards making access to the Internet a basic human right and categorising facilities which enhance access to broadband as a public utility. The success of our trade on a global platform with assistance of companies like Alibaba Cloud depends on an efficient Internet environment. The advanced technology afforded by Alibaba Cloud opens new opportunities, which I believe will quite substantially benefit Malaysia in its efforts to raise competition and efficiency in this new industry,” said Gobind Singh Deo, Malaysia’s Minister of Communications and Multimedia.

In addition to ensuring high availability and resiliency, Availability Zone B offers payment hardware security modules (HSM), elastic computing, database, networking and monitoring services. It is also certified for SAP hosting, the German-based global market leader in enterprise application software.

“Alibaba Cloud is committed to bringing elastic, scalable and secure cloud products and services to our Malaysian customers. The launch of our Availability Zone B and Anti-DDoS Scrubbing Center will enable us to offer even greater security and choice for our customers. At the same time, the launch will facilitate knowledge sharing with local enterprises and talents on how to use Alibaba Cloud technology to achieve a highly secure and resilient cloud infrastructure,” said Kenny Tan, Malaysia General Manager at Alibaba Cloud.

These new developments in Malaysia come on the back of a number of initiatives by Alibaba Cloud. Earlier this year, the company announced the collaboration with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) in the Malaysia City Brain Initiative to create a smart city powered by AI and big data.

About Alibaba Cloud
Established in 2009, Alibaba Cloud (www.alibabacloud.com), the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, is among the world’s top three IaaS providers according to Gartner, and the largest provider of public cloud services in China, according to IDC.

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), a leading provider of platform solutions designed to help small and medium-sized businesses succeed online, announced that it is offering free SSL Certificates for customers of its Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage brands to ensure customer data and transactions are secure for themselves and their visitors. The offer will help customers enjoy continued success online with the update of Google Chrome 68, which is more security-focused.

Beginning earlier this week, Google’s updated web browser Chrome 68 alerts users if a site does not use a secure HTTPS connection, making an SSL Certificate – an important aspect of any website – even more critical. Google’s updated browser displays a “Not Secure” message in the URL of any website that does not have a secure HTTPS connection, making visitors less likely to engage and reducing visibility in Google search results.


“Many of our customers are entrepreneurs, focused on running their businesses, not web developers adept at reacting to the ever-changing world of technology. Endurance is dedicated to helping millions of these small business owners succeed online and our SSL Certificate offer is just another example of providing our customers with the right tools and support to help them grow their businesses,” said Suhaib Zaheer, senior vice president and general manager, hosting brands at Endurance. “In this day and age, a secure website is no longer optional and SSL certification is now a ‘must-have’ for any website, which is why we’re proud to offer this to Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage customers free of charge in light of Google’s browser update.”

Why Encryption is Critical

For the millions of small businesses online today, a “Not Secure” notice could have a dramatic impact on their business. Without a SSL Certificate encrypting the data passing between them and the visitors to their site, both parties could be at risk, and without dedicated resources for site security, small businesses may be even more vulnerable to attacks.

A simple SSL Certificate can help to protect small businesses by:

Authenticating their presence – Validates that customers are talking to their servers and not someone pretending to be them.
Retaining data integrity – Prevents bad actors from modifying the communications between visitors’ computer and business servers, or even injecting unwanted content into sites.
Encrypting data – Keeps the data passing between a site and its visitors private.
Boosting SEO rank – Improves search optimization since Google will give a boost in the ranking of websites that use an SSL Certificate.

Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage customers will receive free basic SSL to help ensure their sites are secure, allowing their customers to interact with them with confidence. Paid options are also available for customers looking for additional SSL features, such as warranty and TrustLogo Site Seal to display on their website to show their customers that data is secure.
