Announcement: Free Let’s Encrypt SSL With Hosting

We’re delighted to announce that Let’s Encrypt certificates are now available at TetraHost.

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated and open certificate authority (CA) that offers free SSL certificates for the public’s benefit. Just like a paid for SSL certificate, a Let’s Encrypt certificate provides HTTPS protection for your website. You can find it by login into your cPanel and navigating to the Security section or simply by typing Let’s Encrypt in the search field.

What is Let’s Encrypt?

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated and open certificate authority which provides domain-validated security certificates. Run by Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) Let’s Encrypts primary goal is to create a more secure and privacy-respecting web by making https more accessible and user friendly.

Here’s how Let’s Encrypt Certificates work:

  • – It’s free(Absolutely)
  • – Easy installation(Very)
  • – Enables https
  • – Domain validated
  • – Trusted by major browsers
  • – Renews automatically every 90 days

What is https?

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS), unlike its http counterpart is a communications protocol which provides a secure connection between a site and a visitor’s web browser, meaning any data shared is encrypted and safe from prying eyes.

Why HTTPS is important?

For security and Google.

First and foremost, https makes your website secure for your users. If your website does not use https, data sent between it and your users can potentially be intercepted, monitored or even altered by a 3rd party as it traverses the internet.

Security is a top priority for Google and back in August 2016 they announced https would to be used as a ranking single to encourage webmaster to use encryption. Continuing their mission for a safer web, from this month Google will highlight all sites which collect passwords and credit card data without https encryption as ‘Non-secure’ to visitors. You can learn more about this update here.

How to install Let’s Encrypt SSL?

With Let’s Encrypt you will be able to receive a certificate for your website without filling out any information details and by clicking a single button. Just choose the domain/subdomain you wish to cover with a certificate to and click on the Issue button next to it.

For more information about the Let’s Encrypt project and how it works, visit their official website.

If you are having any issue with SSL install or want us to install the certificates for you, please submit a ticket at support [at] tetrahostbd.com

ShoutCast Admin Pro

Message from WHMSonic:

Many new features direct from your requests with hundreds of tweaks and improvements. It was somehow hard to write every new feature and changes to software, the following list is only highlighted changes and fixes. There are several other new and sub features under the following new features and fixes.

We are very proud to present WHMSonic v2.1; Almost everything you know about WHMSonic software has changed. We have re-coded and re-designed the software completely and we have spent time approximately 2 years on the development, we worked hard together and at the end we brought you amazing and unique new features which are not done ever before, of couse with our “professional but easy to use” policy.

To do list for the radio clients:

1.) If you have an AutoDJ setup from the old version, login to your cPanel WHMSonic and click “Update Required” button on your “AutoDJ Management” page. This will automatically update your AutoDJ without changing your mp3 base and it will create a playlist for your current mp3 base. This will be done within a few seconds or minutes depending on number of mp3 files under the current mp3 base. You can then manage your playlist under the playlist manager with a powerful playlist manager.

2.) WHMSonic requires a playlist before AutoDJ creation now. You can create a playlist under the “Playlist Manager” of your cPanel WHMSonic. You can easily upload music files to your playlist mp3 base which is shown on the playlist page by using “upload music files” button under the playlist manager. Internal radio clients can also use FTP to upload.

3) IMPORTANT: If you are an external radio client, be aware that this version has terminated/removed the FTP features. You have now better upload feature under the “Playlist Manager” >> “Upload Music Files” button. It is a multiple upload feature, you can select multiple songs by holding CTRL key. It will upload your mp3 files and will add them on your playlist, then you can manage your playlist.

For all radio clients, you may watch this tutorial video on how to create an autodj and playlist + ftp and reload playlist function + external radio clients upload new music and autodj creation, Click Here to watch the tutorial video

Server Upgrade

As you know already, our main server which is “hera.ihostman.com” will be moved to a better hardware. We have already ordered the new server from our Datacenter which is Softlayer, USA. The new server physical location is Texas, Dallas. We have chosen Dallas location because the connectivity from Bangladesh is fast then any other location. We will inform you about the new Server Configuration very soon via our blog post.

We are expecting to start the transfer process from 20th January, 2012 at mid-night 12.00 AM(GMT +6). Please note, We do not expect any downtime during the transfer process. We will take every steps to keep all our client account up and running smoothly/properly.

To make the process faster, we may take down the following two service for 24-48 hour:

1. cPanel
2. FTP Server

So, while both the service set to down, user will not be able to access cPanel or upload any file to server using FTP. It is also recommended not to update any site while we ran the transfer process to avoid any file missing issue. Please note again, HTTP service or Web Access will stay up during this process.

We are expecting to complete the transfer process in 24hours time. As soon as the transfer process is completed, we will update the DNS Server.

*** Update regarding the transfer process will be informed via our blog post.

We hope to have your full co-operation during the transfer process.

Price increase for .COM & .NET domains!

Few days ago, we were notified by our mother domain registrar that, VeriSign, Inc. will be increasing the cost to register .com and .net TLD’s effective from January 15, 2012. Here is part of the announcement:

DULLES, VA — (MARKET WIRE) — 07/14/11 — VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world, today announced, effective Jan. 15, 2012, an increase in registry domain name fees for .com and .net, per its agreements with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

This will be the third price increase, by Verisign, in the last few years. Adding to this, recently the USD Dollar Rate has increased significantly as well. A few month ago it was 70tk per USD but currently it is something around 80tk per USD.

Up until now, we have absorbed the cost of these price increases, however, we can no longer continue to absorb these price increases. We were trying to manage it within ourselves but with both Verisign Price increase and USD Dollar Rate increase we are forced to increase our Domain Registration cost for .COM and .NET

We would also like to mention that we are not going to increase the price heavily at all. Our price will remain same on USD rate which is 10$ but in BDT the price would be 800tk(previously it was 700tk). Effective from January 14, 2012, all existing domain registrations maintained by TetraHostbd.com will increase to the new rate of BDT 800tk/year per domain for .COM and .NET. The new price will be applicable for both, single and multiple(Domain Reseller) domain registration.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions about this notice, please do not hesitate to reply this blog post.

I was searching for a good anti virus which can be used easily with cPanel server and detect threats confidently. After a lot of search, discussing with techy people i finally decided to use Clamav Anti Virus for my server. I was surprise to see its effectiveness.

Clamav can detect viruses, trojans, malwares from your server. More importantly, it can detect if there any hacking activity is running on your server with any shell script.

Clamav, can be installed very easily into a cPanel server. Here are the steps:

>> Login to your root WHM
>> Manage Plugins
>> Here you will see a list of free manageable plugin offered by cPanel
>> Find “clamavconnector” and check the box which says “Install and keep updated”
>> Scroll down and click on “Save”
>> Now, system will automatically download all required file to your server and install it for you.
>> Once the installation is completed, you are ready to use it immediately!

Now to scan the server you need to follow the following steps:

You’ll need to login as root to SSH to do this,

Create a file named “clamscan.log”

>> cd /var/log
>> touch clamscan.log

To scan all the cPanel accounts, i mean users home directory, please run the following command:

clamscan -ir /home/*/public_html > /var/log/clamscan.log &

This command will scan all public_html and log all infected files to /var/log/clamscan.log. Now, you can see all the effected files and remove them from their location.

Your cPanel server is secure now!
