Google’s Next Move Against Non-SSL Websites

Sep, 26, 2017 | Business Websites, Community, Online Security | 0 Comments

Heads up if you don’t have an SSL certificate installed on your website! As of October, Google will be releasing Chrome 62 which aims to further take the fight to websites that are still running without an SSL certificate, and are therefore insecure. The purpose of installing an SSL certificate is to encrypt the data travelling between your website and your visitors, ensuring that malicious third-parties can’t get their hands on the sensitive data your customers may be typing into your website, such as passwords or credit card details. Non-SSL-secured websites can be identified as they start with http://, while…

Want a 50% speed boost for your website? It’s time to make the switch to PHP 7+!

Aug, 31, 2017 | Business Websites, Support | 3 Comments

The time has come for a moment of reflection, perhaps on life in general, bad dieting choices, what possesses any of the contestants to sign up for being on The Bachelor… but while you’re at it, we think it’s a great time to spare a moment for your PHP version. PHP is a programming language upon which the majority of popular website platforms are built, including the juggernaut of them all, WordPress (which as of April last year was reported to power 26.4% of the web). As such a widely-used programming language, PHP is evolving every day – getting more…

Aug, 24, 2017 | Cloud Hosting, Online Security | 1 Comment
lava lamps data encryption

Lava lamps, believe it or not, have various uses: they look cool, work great in low light, can keep me occupied for several hours, and can act as a random number generator for data encryption. Ahyup. What the hell are you talking about? In the San Francisco office lobby of renowned cloud network and online security company, CloudFlare, is a wall; but not just any wall–this wall holds 100 lava lamps that have a (not so) secret mission.

The Difference Between NS and DNS Records

NS and DNS records

A common question pops up here at Digital Pacific and that is; “What is the difference between NS and DNS records?” For many people, they (quite understandably) weren’t aware that they were two different things at all. NS, or Name Server records, are the top-most records attached to your domain. When a person types in your domain to either visit your website or send you an email, the first thing your computer does is look up what your domain’s NS records are. NS records are public and are stored/replicated across many locations all over the world.Once your computer knows the NS…

Or perhaps, you’ve committed the ultimate sin of writing your passwords down in a text document on your computer, or on little shreds of paper scattered across your desk, inching ever slower towards their ultimate fate of falling off the edge and being consumed by your vacuum?
