I manage many different websites that use WordPress and I find that the very best thing I can do for security is to install the WordFence plugin. It is a real WAF (Web Application Firewall) that works in the background to help prevent malicious activity on your website.

Do you use this or something different for WP security?

SEO and Marketing / Does HostNed Support Mailing Lists?
January 15, 2019, 12:59:29 pm
Our hosting services are optimized for websites and email for daily use. To keep our services clean and spam-free, we limit the number of emails that your account can send per hour. Although this makes a great environment for most, it is not designed for mass mailings and email marketing campaigns.

Recommended Email Marketing Services:

Connect to your Web Presence Builder (WPB)

Your WPB is available at the following URL.

Once logged in, click the EDIT WEBSITE button. I suggest running backups frequently prior to performing changes, just to be safe.
Once published, you will need to refresh the browser to see the new changes.

Please be advised that since you are using the SiteBuilder, it is not recommended to use FTP or File Manager to edit files as doing so could overwrite files that are vital to keep the SiteBuilder functioning properly.
Frontpage / Frontpage Extensions No Longer Supported
September 27, 2018, 12:40:55 pm
We no longer support FPSE (Frontpage Server Extensions) as they are a very old and expired technology that has been abandoned by Microsoft.

Alternatives are:

- Wordpress or other CMS
- Parallels Web Presence Builder (SiteBuilder)
- File Manager (cPanel or Plesk)

Beware of another Domain Registration Scam. This one from a company named iDNS (Internet Domain Name Services) from Jersey City, New Jersey.



If you need help determining your real Domain Registrar, feel free to contact us or use our WHOIS Lookup here..

iDNS are fraudulently sending Domain Expiration Notices pretending to be from your current Domain Name Registrar. Nowhere in their notice do they disclose that they are, in fact, a third party company attempting to get you to switch to them as a Registrar, but that is precisely what they are doing.

Here is an example of the notice.
Create and manage Git™ repositories directly from your cPanel hosting control panel. You can use Git to maintain any set of files and track the history of changes from multiple editors (version control).

Email and Webmail / Using Rainloop For Email
March 05, 2018, 05:54:13 pm
I have been using the HostNed RainLoop for email (webmail) lately. Although it is a little limited in it's features, I have to say it is a nice email experience for something that is browser-based. Looks way better than the other standard webmail systems like Roundcube and Horde -- especially when on a tablet or smartphone.
It's still in Beta, but give it a try.
Thanks for your question. We see that Wordpress is the most popular by far and we fully support it here. Nothing is totally secure, but the last few years WP has been doing good by helping keep the product as secure as possible. Many have success using a Security Plugin like Wordfence or Securi. They are available in the WP plugin market.
Your hosting includes email with advanced SPAM filtering like Apache Spamassassin. This is controlled by you from your hosting Control Panel (Cpanel or Plesk).

An optimally configured IMAP mailbox enables a Spam email folder called "Spam" where detected SPAM messages are sent to. This keeps your Inbox clean and SPAM-Free :)

Our policy for Spam folders is to automatically delete messages therein after 7 days. This allows you ample time to scan the Spam folder periodically for possible False Positives, or messages that should not be there.
SPAM is a problem for everyone at some point or another. To help you fight SPAM, HostNed offers a powerful tool that keeps up-to-date with the very latest pattern recognition software. While most providers offer SpamAssassin with default rules that catches only a limited amount of bad stuff, we allow you to assist yourself and the HostNed community by reporting SPAM messages that make their way through. The technical term is "Server-wide Baysian SpamAssassin Email Rules". It works much like anti-virus software does, but is designed for email systems.

Here is how to use it (HostNed Hosting Only):

  • First make sure that SpamAssassin is enabled in the Control Panel. See documentation here: Cpanel, Plesk. Just use the basic config. We recommend setting to send all identified SPAM to the folder named "spam".

  • Now we need to create two new mail folders in the top level (not inside other folders). One named "Report-spam" and another named "Report-notspam". (Case sensitive, no quotes)

  • To use it like a pro, report new SPAM by moving any noticeable SPAM that comes to your Inbox to the folder "Report-spam". The server will check that folder daily for fresh SPAM you added recently. As a courtesy, we do not remove these messages from that folder for a few days, but eventually it will clear itself. The server will use the messages you reported to "learn" what the new SPAM patterns looks like and will attempt to move any incoming messages that match it to your "spam" folder. In case any messages come through into the "spam" that are not really SPAM (false positives), move them into the "Report-notspam" folder you created. Same deal, allow the server a couple days to process the report.

This powerful tool can give you the edge in SPAM prevention that are typically reserved only for expensive providers or custom systems.

* Please be respectful of the other community members by REPORTING ONLY ACTUAL SPAM, unwanted messages from legitimate sources are not to be reported here as other users may indeed desire those in their inboxes.
Email and Webmail / Using Gmail Along With HostNed
April 15, 2016, 02:24:45 pm
This is a guide for options available -- and recommended easy way -- for connecting your hosted domain (HostNed) email to your Gmail account.

Assuming you already have your domain hosted with HostNed:
Your HostNed Web Hosting service already comes with email accounts. This includes standard connection protocols IMAP, POP3, and SMTP to use with various clients and applications (Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, K9 Mail, etc...). The web hosting also includes Webmail for checking your email through any web browser. You can also create email "Forwarders" that redirect mail to a different address.

Hooking Your Email Into Gmail

If you rather use Gmail as a "hub" for your various different email addresses, there are different ways to go about doing that, but the most common way I see is users setting up email "Forwarding" and have that address forward mail to your Gmail account. In your Gmail account you can receive that mail and you can also set up your Gmail account to "send mail as" your account, that is in Gmail "Settings -> Accounts and Import -> Send Mail As".

Set Up An Email Forwarder

First you need to log in to your hosting Control Panel -- that is either Cpanel or Plesk.

For most domains using Cpanel:
  Cpanel Manual:

For most domains using Plesk: (Linux) or (IIS)
  Plesk Manual:

Other Options

Even still, there are other ways to achieve this that are more complicated. Also there is the way by changing the MX records and Cnames and various DNS settings to do more direct email management through Gmail, most often combined with Paid Upgraded Google Apps for Business.

What are the main differences between Windows Server 2003 and 2008?

  • IP Address: Because Windows Server 2008 will be on a separate server, migrating from Windows Server 2003 to 2008 will mean that your website's IP address will change.

  • Scripting Paths: Your website is made up of interconnected script and image files. They all reside on our servers and your scripts (like index.html) tell your browser which to load and where to find them. Migration from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 will physically move your files from one server to another and thus require you to change the paths your scripts use to look for your site files.

  • ODBC Drivers: ODBC Drivers allow a web application to make connections to a database. Because these drivers are of a later version in Windows Server 2008 a small change will need to be made when migrating your data.

  • CDONTS: CDONTS is a method used to allow a website to send email from a webpage. CDONTS has been replaced with CDOSYS in Windows Server 2008.

  • FrontPage: FrontPage Extensions allowed Microsoft FrontPage to communicate with web servers. As this is no longer supported by Microsoft, Frontpage Server Extensions will no longer be available for use on a Windows 2008 server, although Frontpage can still be used in FTP mode to edit and upload web pages.

  • Basic/Advanced Password Protection: Basic/Advanced Password Protection is a feature that was provided by us on old Windows Server 2003 hosting packages. This allowed customers to password protect directories in their website. Once you have migrated to Windows Server 2008, this feature will no longer work.

  • iHTML: iHTML is only supported by IIS6 and earlier.  As Windows 2008 uses IIS7, iHTML is no longer supported.

  • .EXE File Handling: .exe files are executable files. These might simply be files for your users to download or they could be CGI applications which you execute. Our Windows 2008 Server platform handles these files slightly differently to our Windows Server 2003 platform.
