Thank you for the input.  I have not worked with Word Press before, but I see it widely used for bloggers.  I will do some reading up on it before I take the plunge.  Have a great day!

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.

Hello Hostned,

I am considering a stock installation of one of the CMS products from the control panel.  I am thinking of WordPress or Joomla.  Does Hostned have a preference as to which we use from a security standpoint?  Are there any changes from the standard install that need to be done?  I do not want to leave my site or your servers vulnerable.

Thanks in advance for your input.

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.

Email & Webmail / Advanced SPAM Filtering by Spa...

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 & Webmail / Using Gmail Along With HostNed
Last post by Dynaweb - 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.
