New compression module available on all servers: mod_brotli

We are pleased to announce that we enabled the mod_brotli compression module for Apache on all our servers.

It is an alternative to the mod_deflate module that is already available on our servers, but it should provide better compression.

More information about the mod_brotli module is available here:

New design for the hosting Control Panel

We are happy to announce that we have redesigned our hosting Control Panel. It now has a new and improved design that is better-suited to utilize the displays of modern computers.

There are two themes currently available - Classic and Modern. The Classic theme resembles the previous design of the Control Panel, whereas the Modern theme features a modern flat interface. ICDSoft customers can switch between the themes from the upper right corner of their hosting Control Panel.

Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerabilities patched on all ICDSoft servers

In regards to the recently discovered MDS vulnerabilities (also known as Zombieload, RIDL, and Fallout) in Intel CPUs, we want to assure our clients that all of our machines have been secured. Since our servers use Intel CPUs, our system administrators have applied the necessary security updates in order to protect our customers from these Microarchitectural Data Sampling vulnerabilities.

We take security very seriously, and although we aren't aware of any real world attack, we cannot risk having such a security hole in our server configuration.

Special price for 10-year .EU domain registrations

To celebrate Europe Day, EURid, the global registry for .EU domains, is running a special promotion. For a limited time, they offer 10-year registrations of new .EU domains for only 10 EUR. ICDSoft is an EURid-accredited registrar, and we have decided to pass the 10 EUR price promotion directly to our customers.

A .EU domain name is more likely to be available than a .COM one, giving you a better chance to get the domain name you really want. The special price will be valid until May 11, 2019.

To register a .EU domain, you have to provide a valid address in a country in the European Union. So, if you are based in the EU, hurry up and register your .EU domain now, for only 10 EUR for 10 years.
