Are You Looking For Fast Reliable Website Hosting?
Posted by Steve on 02 November 2017 03:11 PM

October has been another excellent month for Netcetera’s clients, with Netcetera again being ranked the number one hosting provider out of all the UK’s top ISP’s monitored by Webperf, the Monitoring Service Company. Netcetera has regularly been in or around the top spot throughout 2017 for speed of hosting and reliability of service, something we are determined to maintain for all of our valued clients.

As we’ve mentioned before, Webperf calculates the transferring rate against time. Since October 1998 Webperf has been the UK’s only independent ISP performance benchmark. Testing any willing ISP’s for performance and reliability 24/7. Unlike some ISP’s, we are more than happy to have external monitoring as it clearly demonstrates just how fast and reliable our hosting is. Take a look at the table below and you’ll see that October was another excellent month as Netcetera continued to deliver the fastest and most reliable website hosting in the UK.

Throughout 2017 Netcetera has never been out of the top ten and has regularly been ranked in the number one spot. The above Webperf rankings for October clearly demonstrate our commitment to deliver the very best website hosting available anywhere in the UK. 

With more and more businesses relying on their websites to generate leads and create sales we cannot emphasise the importance of having fast, secure reliable hosting. If you’re unlucky enough to be with a provider who cannot deliver reliability or speed, you’ll know exactly what we mean when we talk about the frustration caused by downtime and a lack of support when you need it most. It’s not just about being ranked number one in the UK for speed and reliability, there is much more to hosting with Netcetera than having a fast reliable website. When you choose to host with the UK’s number one hosting provider you’ll also receive excellent 24/7 technical support coupled with superb value for money across all of our hosting packages. Whether you’re looking for a small personal website or multiple business sites you’ll be guaranteed awesome support and super fast speeds regardless of the hosting package you require.

How Secure Is Your Windows Server?
Posted by Nick Wild on 15 October 2017 09:56 AM
Have you ever thought about how secure your Windows Server actually is? Would you know if your RDP Port Connection is open? If you’re not sure, it certainly wouldn’t take long for somebody else to find out the answer, which could then leave your server being compromised, and given the number of cyber attacks that take place on a daily basis are you prepared to suffer the consequences of having an un-secure server. You wouldn’t leave the door open to your car with the keys left in, so why leave the door open to your server and all of your valuable data?
 
If you want to make sure your server is secure then take a look at the options below. Implementing any of these will will help reduce the risk of a cyber attack through an open port on your server.
 

The Quick Fix

The quick and easy short-term fix would be to change your RDP Port to something less obvious. Most abuse against RDP Connections tends to assume either the default port or some of the more obvious combinations. Changing to something more randomised could increase your security and leave your server less open to attacks via RDP. You can change this yourself, or Netcetera can take this on for you subject to one-off Admin Time charge.

The Recommended Fix 

RDPGuard is a host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS) that protects your Windows Server from brute-force attacks on various protocols and services (RDP, FTP, SMTP, MySQL, MS-SQL, IIS Web Login, ASP.NET Web Forms, MS Exchange, RD Web Access, etc). It monitors the logs on your server and detects failed logon attempts. If the number of failed logon attempts from a single IP address reaches a set limit, the attacker’s IP address will be blocked for a specified period of time. This can be a more comprehensive coverage and isn’t too hard to enforce.
 

The Best Fix

The best and most secure option for your server would be to disable RDP Access from the public network. Protect your RDP behind our VPN and access will be strictly restricted to anyone connected to that network, no hassle and much better security for you and your server(s)! This service is usually £10.00 per month per server, but you can now SAVE 50%. This server protection is the most comprehensive available and if you do have valuable information then this is the protection for you. Click on the below button now secure your server and save money!

Keeping Your Account Secure – New Support PIN
Posted by Jason Scales on 09 August 2017 01:47 PM

At Netcetera, the security of your account and services is a top priority and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you new account security features.

We have now released Netcetera Support PIN. When you contact Netcetera support, we may need to validate your account before we can discuss account specific details.

If you wish to have someone else contact our support team, such as your web developer, then we would recommend you give them the Support PIN. You can then revoke the PIN once the web developer has finished their work. The Support PIN is a unique number that you can create via your client area and is valid for 24 Hours.

Creating your Support PIN couldn’t be simpler. Just login to the Netcetera Portal and in the top left hand corner, you will see the new Support PIN generator.

By clicking on the Generate new PIN button, your new Support PIN will be automatically generated and you can then use this to get in contact with Netcetera and quickly verify your identity.

Once your PIN is generated, it will be valid for 24 Hours and you can choose to revoke or generate a new PIN at any time. It’s quick, simple and gives your account greater security.
