Domain Pricing Adjustments

Sunday, April 16, 2017


We've kept our domain name pricing fairly static for the last several years, even though pricing on our end has been steadily climbing. We're finally at a point were we have to change our pricing, as we're now actually losing money on some top level domains. Thus, within 30 days new pricing will go into effect. The .org domain is going from $11 to $13.90. This is one we're losing money on...

We are preparing to roll out the lsapi module for php execution

Friday, January 22, 2016


The title of this announcement probably makes little sense to the non-technical, but what it means is that we are gearing up to run PHP scripts through a slightly different mechanism that will result in better PHP application performance. We have mod_lsapi running on a few servers already with great success, so the complete rollout is scheduled to be done over the coming weekend (Jan 23/24)....

Forwarding to certain domains to be prohibited

Wednesday, January 7, 2015


We have been having major email deliverability problems recently with certain destinations. At this moment Microsoft is giving us a lot of trouble. Analyzing the data, it appears that they are probably blocking us because of the number of clients who are forwarding emails to hotmail.com, msn.com, outlook.com, etc. Incoming spam gets forwarded, Microsoft sees the content as spammy, and then...

The new .church TLD launch is imminent!

Wednesday, September 17, 2014


It's about 10:40 a.m. on September 17th as I write this, and the .church general availability time is 11:00 a.m. We pre-registered a number of .church domains for clients, and at some point after 11:00 a.m. we should hopefully start getting indications of which pre-registrations were successful. This is the first pre-registration batch we've done though, so I really don't have any previous...

Spam filtering improvements

Friday, June 20, 2014


Over the past several days I've been making some spam filtering adjustments to both regular hosting plans as well as our business email hosting service . Our regular hosting plans use SpamAssassin on Linux to filter spam, and while we should be able to filter the majority of spam, it's extremely tough to filter on new outbreaks before blacklists catch on to them. If you are on the leading...

What MediaServe clients should know about Heartbleed

Friday, April 11, 2014


Some of our clients are asking about Heartbleed, the OpenSSL vulnerability that was reported just days ago. The first thing you should knonw is that we quickly patched our servers, so our clients are protected from exploits relying on the Heartbleed vulnerability. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't take some additional precautionary measures.

IMPORTANT: New ICANN RAA email verification requirements for 2014

Monday, January 27, 2014


ICANN, the governing body for domain name registration, has modified the RAA (Registrar Accreditation Agreement) for 2014, requiring all registrars to now verify email addresses whenever contact information changes or a domain is registered or transfered. This means whenever you change a domain's WHOIS contact email address info, you need to be looking for a "RAA email verification" email to...
