Announcements / End-Of-Life for PHP version 7....
Last post by Dynaweb - January 12, 2023, 01:10:34 PM
This is an announcement for all Web Hosting customers. It is time again for PHP upgrades.

PHP 7.4 reached EOL

It is highly recommended that you upgrade your PHP version. In the near future, technicians as well as automated systems will be upgrading accounts periodically, however, we highly recommend you upgrade your PHP version yourself if you are using version 7.4 or lesser.

Ensure your PHP scripts are up-to-date

The new version 8.x comes with some degree of incompatibility with some older code. Our techs and systems cannot know for sure if your PHP scripts are compatible with the new versions, so have your software developer check into that for you. Some code syntax that works properly on older versions may not work with 8.x and may display error or warning messages. If you do continue to use the older version in the meantime, you will be susceptible to any remaining bugs or security issues.

For more information, read PHP EOL Documentation.

SSL and HTTPS / Force HTTPS Connections
Last post by Dynaweb - May 08, 2022, 10:18:38 AM
Forcing HTTPS on All Website Traffic

HTTPS is the new standard in secure online connections for web pages. It ensures that connections are not being intercepted and instills confidence for your visitors.

When you enable HTTPS on your web site using an installed SSL certificate, you may still be able to load your pages using the traditional non-HTTPS connections, so to get things as secure as possible, it is recommended to enable https:// connections all the time. It is a good idea to enable this unless there is something that will not work in https mode for some reason. cPanel calls this "Force HTTPS redirect. You can find that setting under DOMAINS in your cPanel area. This is available for your main domain name only, so to force HTTPS connections on your subdomains and/or add-on domains, you can do that by adding some code to your .htaccess file.

Here is how to use the .htaccess file to force HTTPS redirects:

Go to File Manager in cPanel (or Plesk) and find .htaccess inside the public_html folder. Be sure to make a backup copy first just in case something goes wrong. If you can't find it, make sure to unhide hidden files in the settings.
Scroll down to find RewriteEngine On and insert the following lines of code below it:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Save the changes.
Important! Make sure that the line RewriteEngine On is not repeated twice. In case the line already exists, simply copy the rest of the code without it.

Force HTTPS on a Specific Domain Only
Let's say that you have two domains: and Both domains access the same website, but you only want the first one to be redirected to the HTTPS version. In this case, you need to use the following code:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Make sure to replace yourdomain1 with the actual domain you're trying to force HTTPS on.

Forcing HTTPS on a Specific Folder
The .htaccess file can also be used to force HTTPS on specific folders only. However, the .htaccess file should be placed inside the folder that will have the HTTPS connection.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(folder1|folder2|folder3) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

After making the changes, clear your browser's cache and try to connect to your site via HTTP. If everything was added correctly, the browser will automatically redirect you to the HTTPS version.

Even though your connections are now being automatically redirected to HTTPS. you may want to update your links in your website code to the new updated https:// address for best practice.

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?

The cost of the website will be decided based on the technology that will be used to develop the site. If we decide to go with PHP website development, then the cost will be less, development time will be fast.

If you want to develop a website using .net, the cost will be high and the development time will also increase, however, the website developed using .net are scalable and secure.
