Decrease in webhosting prices

Compared to a few years ago, there has been a significant decline in webhosting prices internationally without a major change in quality of webhosting. 5 years ago, the lowest prices were usually $3/month for webhosting, today there are many companies which are offering webhosting for less than $18/year.
While well known webhosting brands, especially those affiliated with EIG group like Hostgator.com continue to charge higher prices for webhosting, the lesser known brands have reduced their webhosting prices to a very great extent.

After Burst.net closed, many webhosting companies realized that having customers was most important, only if their customers made money, they would be paid monthly or yearly.

In India, however the webhosting rates continue to remain high, significantly higher compared to international prices.

Why Link sellers should avoid some wellknown webhosting brands in the US

Most people resort to link selling because they have realized that PPC, CPM advertising is no longer lucrative for them because their Google adsense account has been disabled or other reasons.
Link selling is a high volume, low margin business and the link seller cannot afford to spend much money on the design and development of the website.
Some of the major webhosting brands in the US are extremely fussy about their clientele and will disable the account or delete files if the websites they host are not well designed. So the link seller will find that their websites are deleted without a valid reason causing a reduction in revenues . They will have to waste their time and money restoring the website repeatedly if they use reputed webhosting brands.

So domain investors who sell links or have private blog networks are advised not to purchase expensive webhosting as the reputed webhosting brands prefer well designed websites

Information About Your Website Security

We’ve recently collaborated with our longtime security partner, SiteLock, to help you — our valued customer — add even more protection to your web presence! Website security is something we take very seriously at HostGator. For that reason, as part of your hosting package we’ll be including a basic malware scan for your domains that don’t currently have SiteLock, free of charge.

This scan will identify known malware and acts as a simple “alarm system” by sending you an email alert as soon as something malicious has been detected, giving you time to react prior to being blacklisted by search engines.

For more information on this and other ways to secure your website please feel free to reach out to our trusted security advisors at SiteLock directly at HostGator today.

PHP upgrade on the server

mail is to confrim that we have performed the PHP upgrade on the server successfully. Now the server services
are running stable and without any issues. But still, there might be some glitches in the performance of your websites
mainly the CMS based websites. This is usually beacuse of the incompatiblities of the coding or the used plugins for
the functioning of your website with the current PHP version. This can only be overcome by your developer by optimizing
the codes to be compatible with the current PHP version.

You can please go through your website for such issues or error instances so that it can be fixed from the root
and get the website resolving fine.

Warm Regards,

Message for users of 000webhost

What happened?
A hacker used an exploit in an old PHP version, that we were using on our website, in order to gain access to our systems. Data that has been stolen includes usernames, passwords, email addresses, IP addresses and names.

Although the whole database has been compromised, we are mostly concerned about the leaked client information.

What did we do about it?
We have been aware of this issue since 27th of October and our team started to troubleshoot and resolve this issue the same day, immediately after becoming aware of this issue.

In an effort to protect our users we have temporarily blocked access to systems affected by this security flaw. We will re-enable access to the affected systems after an investigation and once all security issues have been resolved. Affected systems include our website and our members area. Additionally we have temporarily blocked FTP access, as FTP passwords have been stolen as well.

We reseted all users passwords in our systems and increased the level of encryption to prevent such issues in the future.

We are still working around the clock to identify and eliminate all security flaws. We will get back to providing the free service soon. We are also updating and patching our systems.

What do you need to do?
As all the passwords have been changed to random values, you now need to reset them when the service goes live again.
DO NOT USE YOUR PREVIOUS PASSWORD.
PLEASE ALSO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS IF YOU USED THE SAME PASSWORD FOR OTHER SERVICES.

We also recommend that you use Two Factor Authentication (TFA) and a different password for every service whenever possible. We can recommend the Authy authenticator app and the LastPass password manager.

We are sorry
At 000webhost we are committed to protect user information and our systems. We are sorry and sincerely apologize we didn’t manage to live up to that.
At 000webhost our top priority remains the same – to provide free quality web hosting for everyone. The 000webhost community is a big family, exploring and using the possibilities of the internet together.
Our leadership team will closely monitor this issue and will do everything possible to earn your trust every day.
