Written by Chris Graves on September 11, 2014

As you’ve noticed by now, we’ve updated our look. It’s the seventh major change to our web site since we started the company in 1997.  I think it looks great, but we’ve also made changes that go far more than skin deep.

Once the exploit was detected, the offending email account was shut down and spam ceased to be sent from our server.

This is a very unfortunate situation and

Now, we don’t want to blame cPanel. They offer a robust product and these updates were essential to closing a security gap before it was exploited. This is what good and responsible developers do and we appreciate their attention to addressing potential

Message 2 You’ve received some chain letter that Snopes disproved years ago but a co-worker never checks his sources before blasting out emails to his entire address book.

Message 3 Some person with an unfortunate (and likely fake) name has sent you an email telling you how to be a better lover and
