Easter Bonanza of Top-Level Domain Names from Easyspace

buzz

gTLDs including .pics, .photo, .holiday, .marketing and .pink go live this week

Easyspace has more domain names on offer this week than it has done since the new wave of new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) began at the start of this year.

.pics, .photo, .link, .gift, .guitars, and .buzz will be available on a first come first served basis from 5pm today while .holiday and .marketing will be available for immediate purchase from 5pm tomorrow (16th April).

.photo is particularly significant because it is the first time that a singular and plural version of a new gTLD will be live. .photos is already one of the most popular new gTLD. .guru is still proving the most popular.

Finally, there is another batch of gTLDs to come on 17 April. .pink, .red, .kim, .shiksha and .blue will all be available first come first served from 5pm on Thursday.

Sarah Haran, Managing Director of Easyspace, said: “This week offers a domain name extension bonanza to help a wide range of businesses and organisations stand out online. Certainly gTLDs like .marketing will be of interest to marketing agencies while .holiday could be of great benefit to companies specialising in travel packages.”

To purchase the new extensions, and to find out more about other gTLDs due to be released soon, visit the Easyspace domain name portal http://www.easyspace.com/domain-names/new-gtlds, call 0370 755 5088

OpenSSL – A Few Tips On How To Be Safe

You might have noticed  that an OpenSSL advisory has been announced. You can find much more comprehensive information at http://heartbleed.com/.

First of all – try not to worry – this most probably does not effect you! But please read on…

I am a shared web hosting customer – what do I need to do?
Nothing! Easyspace shared hosting servers have been patched – and your sites and details are safe. Its all part of the service!

I have a managed server – What should I do?
Managed servers with Easyspace (where the customer opted-in to automatic operating system updates) will be patched and updated by our technicians.

I have an un-managed server – What should I do?
Most (if not all) vendors have released patches that are now ready to be installed. These are patched versions of 1.0.1e.

If you update your OpenSSL today or in the future, you’ll have a patched version installed.

After installing the updated OpenSSL package you should restart any system services which depend on SSL encryption, such as HTTP servers, mail servers etc.

For Debian/Ubuntu users:

apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install openssl libssl1.0.0

For CentOS/RHEL users:

yum -y update openssl

Once the update has completed it is advised to reboot your server to ensure all services are updated and inherit the new OpenSSL version.

What version of OpenSSL is vulnerable?
OpenSSL 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f (inclusive) are vulnerable.

The following distributions that we offer and support are reported to be vulnerable:

  • Debian 7.x “Wheezy” (stable)
  • Ubuntu 12.04.4 “Precise” (LTS)
  • CentOS 6.5

Any older distributions vendor-supplied OpenSSL packages are based on OpenSSL 0.9.8 or 1.0.0, and are not vulnerable.
We have prepared further instructions and information in this PDF >Please click here >>

What can this vulnerability actually do?
The bug allows malicious clients to view 65Kb chunks of decrypted system memory. This can be done many times to build a picture of the contents of your system memory (RAM). This *could* be used to disclose information such as the SSL private key; the private counterpart to your public SSL certificate.

Need more help?
As usual, if you have any further questions, please get in touch with us via the usual support channels.
