The latest Web Hosting News and Updates from all over

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.

Mobile app development has emerged as an essential part of every organisation’s digitalisation strategy. Thanks to the easy availability of feature-rich and affordable devices, there has been a humongous growth in demand for tablets, phablets and smartphones. With consumers as well as business professionals becoming increasingly dependent on the mobile internet, the need for mobile apps has been on the rise across industries. App development roadblocks App building delivers a host of benefits. These include speeding up of operations, ability to introduce new products and services (and doing that fast), improving customer satisfaction, and outperforming the competition.

PARIS – Acorus Networks, specialized in protecting enterprise and service providers’ network and web platform infrastructure from distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), is raising $6 million from Elaia Partners, Partech and Kima Ventures. This funding round will contribute to Acorus Networks’ mission to protect customers whose business activity relies on the Internet, in fields such as banking, e-commerce, gambling, government and healthcare.

According to IDC Research’s recent US DDoS Prevention Survey, more than 50% of IT security decision makers admit that their organization had been the victim of DDoS attacks 10 times in the past year. Of these attacks, more than 40% lasted longer than 10 hours. Now that DDoS-as-a-service (DaaS) is available at low prices, it is easier than ever for anyone malicious to launch a DDoS attack, multiplying the risk faced by companies.


In 2014, Benjamin Schilz and Raphael Maunier decided to launch Acorus Networks to address this growing phenomenon with a unique approach. Both co-founders have proven track records: Benjamin is a telecommunications engineer with a background in cloud security and web hosting and an entrepreneur at heart. Raphael is one of the co-founders of France-IX, the premier internet peering service provider in France, with 20 years of experience in the telecom and network industries. Their vision is to develop an innovative & customizable solution to address complex, sophisticated DDoS issues for enterprise and service provider companies alike. Acorus Networks has built a large-scale, agile and robust infrastructure enabling different and complementary methods of both web and network DDoS detection and mitigation that guarantees high availability and performance.

“As an online retailer, the availability of our website is critical. In the event of unavailability, every minute results in a loss of revenue and a deterioration of our brand image. Acorus Networks’ detection and filtering systems operate at the front end of our infrastructures in order to permanently protect us against denial of service,” said Romain Broussard, IT Director at CDiscount.com.

“High-traffic websites, e-sport and live events are recurring targets for DDoS attacks. The flexibility of the Acorus Networks solution and its ability to adapt to our specific needs, as well as the recognized expertise of the team, are at the origin of our choice. “said David Bordas, Hosting and Network Infrastructure Manager at Webedia.

“The DDoS protection and mitigation market continues to grow by more than 20% each year, there is no slowing down of these malicious attacks that hurt customers in indirect or indirect cost. Since Acorus’ solution is designed to answer specific industry needs, it has already met with success among leading brands. The Acorus Networks team’s unparalleled experience in understanding system availability needs and their unique solution has helped them land some of the largest online brands, we are proud to be joining them on this journey.” said Reza Malekzadeh, General Partner at Partech.

“As cyberattacks grow (4000 attacks per day), so do cybersecurity business opportunities. We’ve known Acorus for some time, since they protected Scoop.it, a portfolio company, from a massive attack. I am impressed by their vision, their technology and the reputation the team has built. We are very proud and excited to be on board and confident that Acorus Networks is heading toward international success”, said Marc Rougier, Partner at Elaia Partners.
