A massive number of websites today are powered by PHP and content management systems like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. These sites come with plugins to provide functionalities and improve user experience. However, a large number of such plugins and PHP libraries are restricting the SSL/TLS certificate validation on websites. This is leaving websites and their customers open to risk of data breach. Websites use SSL certificates to encrypt the connection between a web browser and a web server. The aim of installing these certificates is to secure the sensitive information on websites that is submitted by customers. If a website doesn’t use an SSL certificate, the information submitted on that website is at risk of being leaked. Google has made it mandatory for websites to use SSL certificates and enable HTTPS, which has resulted in a positive outcome. But these certificates are of no use if the plugins and libraries disable them. This issue was discovered by Scott Arciszewski, Chief…

LONDON – OnApp has launched version v6.0 of the OnApp cloud management platform. More information and demos are available at https://onapp.com/v6.

OnApp v6.0 includes the new version of OnApp Accelerator, which delivers up to a 100% performance improvement for websites hosted in OnApp clouds. It also introduces Buckets, a combined Role-Based Access Control and billing engine that gives cloud service providers total flexibility in how they package and price their cloud services; new Software-Defined Networking capabilities; enhanced cloud workload import capabilities; enhanced notifications and cloud automation features; support for VMware vCenter; and improved export for usage data, to simplify integration with Business and Operational Support Systems.


“OnApp makes cloud easy for Telcos, MSPs and other service providers who have struggled to make cloud profitable – either because of the cost and complexity of building and managing their own open source clouds, or because of the commercial limitations of reselling hyperscale clouds like AWS,” said Tim Meredith, OnApp’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The new version of OnApp makes it even easier to build a cloud with OnApp, integrate cloud billing models with your existing billing systems and processes, and get to market fast with your own accelerated cloud services.”

OnApp v6.0 includes the new version of OnApp’s patented website acceleration technology. OnApp Accelerator delivers up to a 100% performance improvement for websites hosted in OnApp clouds, by automatically optimizing web content and distributing it to 20 locations on a global Content Delivery Network (CDN) managed by OnApp.

“We believe everyone should have great web performance – and with OnApp you get that for free,” said Ditlev Bredahl, OnApp CEO. “Our patented Accelerator technology makes websites up to twice as fast with zero effort. If your business depends on your website, you don’t need to know how to set up a CDN, and don’t have to pay extra for a CDN service – you just need to host your site with an OnApp cloud provider. OnApp Accelerator is a great value-add for service providers and helps make their customers’ e-commerce sites more profitable too. For customers who have more complex content delivery needs, like streaming video, we still offer a fully customizable CDN platform – but for the vast majority of website owners, Accelerator finally democratizes website performance.”

About OnApp

BALTIMORE – Speedify.tech recently announced that it developed new software ‘FreeSSL.tech Auto’ to help web designers, businesses and laymen add the “Secure” status of an SSL certificate to their website. Using a simple download, businesses can comply with Chrome 70 SSL certificate requirements without having to outsource the costly help of additional technical experts.

Removing the glaring “Not Secure” status message from websites’ address bars has become an urgent priority for many businesses and online retailers. The recent shift in Chrome opened an entire market of predatory “experts” who charge exorbitant fees to offer a relatively easy fix. In response, the web designers and developers of Speedify.tech created a free and simple way for businesses to comply with Google Chrome’s certificate requirements.


FreeSSL.tech offers ‘A Let’s Encrypt client/app’ that is written in PHP. “The app completes the automation of a free SSL certificate in shared hosting, renewing and installing that certificate quickly and without need of additional tech help. All that is required is a web browser, the software download and a few minutes.” said Anindya Sundar Mandal, Lead Developer of FreeSSL.tech.

This SSL Certificate app:

  • Works with shared hosting.
  • Requires no root access.
  • Requires no command line expertise.
  • Works with a friendly administrator’s dashboard.
  • Is installed and configured using a browser.
  • Is mobile responsive. Users can efficiently manage its functions using a mobile phone.
  • Is completely free of cost, with no obligations.

There are some minimum system requirements necessary to use the software, including:

  • Linux hosting: cPanel or any other control panel (this client is NOT compatible with Windows hosting).
  • PHP 5.4 and up.
  • MySQL 5 or MariaDB 10.
  • OpenSSL extension.
  • Curl extension.
  • MySQLi extension.
  • PHP directive allow_url_fopen = On
  • An SSL installation feature enabled for cPanel accounts (for automatic installation of a free SSL Certificate).

Speedify.tech also maintains a free video tutorial HERE (https://freessl.tech/video) for those who would like a simplified walk-through.

Secure status has always been an important feature for websites that take credit card information, but that is no longer the sole reason for businesses to add a certificate to their sites. Google Chrome rates sites “Not secure” if they ask for any type of user content: passwords, emails, etc. And after the recent July 2018 update, Chrome now marks any site “Not secure” that does not have a certificate.

Finally, starting October 16, 2018, Chrome begins marking uncompliant HTTP websites as “Not secure” with a bright red warning color whenever users start to type in information, immediately alerting users to that site’s status. Businesses that do not add a “Secure” status soon may find themselves losing customers.
