Humans of Digital Pacific: Gaetano Edition

Aug, 18, 2016 | Staff Profiles | 4 Comments

When I sent through the interview questions to Gaetano, I mentioned he only had to fill out a selection of the questions he liked the most. But of course, good guy Gaetano valiantly took up the charge and finished the whole thing! Get to know the most worried worrier of the office below: What is your name? Gaetano E. What do you spend your time doing at Digital Pacific? Most of the time… being worried! Haha, but no, really, I ask everyone in the office about 100 questions a day! It’s a full-time gig! How long have you been with…



Round the Office Roundup

Aug, 16, 2016 | Roundups | 1 Comment

It’s time again for another Round the Office Roundup! This series will give you a sneak peek into the world of what’s going on at Digital Pacific. So, what’s been happening? If you’re a regular reader of our Office Roundups, you may recall that last week we announced a memory increase for our Business shared hosting customers from 512mb up to 1GB. The upgrades have continued over the past week and we’re now delighted to reveal that they have extended over to our Personal shared hosting customers too! As such, all Personal shared hosting customers are now enjoying 512mb –…



Humans of Digital Pacific: Chris Edition

Aug, 12, 2016 | Staff Profiles | 0 Comments

Today’s Human of Digital Pacific is Chris, and I have to be honest, I can’t claim to have had an astounding level of input since he is part of the Marketing team and essentially wrote, formatted and proofed his entire profile himself. I do however feel it is pertinent to add my two cents and mention that Chris is the type of person who shares his Subway cookies with us whenever he has them. Chris is a good guy. Be like Chris. Without any further ado: What do you spend your time doing at Digital Pacific? I’m a part of…

It’s time again for another Round the Office Roundup! This series will give you a sneak peek into the world of what’s going on at Digital Pacific. So, what’s been happening? The weeks feel like they are flying by as we get closer to Spring, and with the changing of the seasons, another big change happened here too! Last week, our L3 and L4 SysAdmins and Engineers began deploying and testing increased memory limits across all Business shared hosting plans! Since our upgrade to Litespeed, we have had a bit of memory going spare, so what better use for it…

It’s time again for another Round the Office Roundup! This series will give you a sneak peek into the world of what’s going on at Digital Pacific. So, what’s been happening? The Friday staff lunch was rather iconic – pies from Harry’s Cafe de Wheels. Rather than just tell you what we ate, I thought I’d spice things up by announcing that we are now the world’s very first hybrid web hosting/food critic company. Without further ado, here are two reviews from our Tech Support team: Timo: I can’t say that I eat pies often, but this was best pie…



Humans of Digital Pacific: Mitch Edition

Jul, 28, 2016 | Staff Profiles | 2 Comments

When I sent around an email asking our team to respond to my questions for the Humans of Digital Pacific posts, I got a vast range of effort in the returned responses. On an effort scale of Lee to Mitch, Mitch is definitely at the Mitch end. His responses are so thorough, they weren’t easily condensed on to a card (click the card to enlarge!). For the sake of consistency with the rest of our staff profiles, he’s going to get haphazardly carded up anyway, but his full answers (including accompanying graphics) continue below. What do you spend your time…



We’ve Made the Jump to Litespeed

Jul, 27, 2016 | Company News, Web Hosting | 2 Comments

Goodbye Apache, it’s been good… we don’t regret our time together, but we’ve found someone else. Our SysAdmins have been extra busy lately and we can now announce that Litespeed has been successfully deployed across our entire fleet of shared and reseller hosting servers. Whilst we have touched on this in an earlier blog, we felt that it really deserved it’s very own post as there is much to tell you about this change and why it is a good one! First up, what is Apache and Litespeed? Both of them fall under the category of Web Server Software. Essentially,…



Round the Office Roundup

It’s time again for another Round the Office Roundup! This series will give you a sneak peek into the world of what’s going on at Digital Pacific. So, what’s been happening? Lunch on Friday was a healthy table-load of Mr Crackles. Everybody was so pants-wettingly excited about their little brown box of pork crackling, that I didn’t have the heart to torture them by busting the camera out to document their consumption. Our office building also had a fire drill yesterday, meaning that the most prominent topic of conversation around was what to do with Tech Support Team Leader, Tom,…



HTTPoxy Spotted in the Wild

Jul, 22, 2016 | Online Security, Tips for Hosting | 0 Comments

Sounds nasty right? Like a stomach-churning skin condition for robots that they dare each other to look up on Google images. It’s not. But it is the latest security flaw to hit the airwaves, affecting a range of server softwares including PHP, Python, Apache HTTP server, Go, Apache TomCat and several others – and it is likely this list will continue to grow as less common softwares are checked for the bug. CGI applications, and applications in similar environments, are at risk due to what comes down to a simple namespace conflict, which can be exploited remotely and allows attackers…
