Bandwidth restrictions removed. Resellers increased.

Effective immediately, we will begin removing all bandwidth restrictions from our shared web hosting accounts & packages. After careful review, we have found that the majority of our shared hosting accounts technically do not need hard set quotas.

Over the next few days, we will be updating our servers with the restriction removals for each hosting plan. This means inside of your cPanel account, you will see a “oo” slightly above the bandwidth usage statics on the left side of your cPanel.

We’d also like to let you know that allowing “unmetered” bandwidth does not mean “unlimited”. We have implemented a “fair use” policy, which can be found in our terms of service as well as below this article.

We also want you to know that this does not mean our quality of service will drop; our servers will continue to be monitored and maintained to continue performing as they are currently. Frequently, people get the terms “bandwidth, traffic, resources” mixed up & become confused. We’re simply removing the hard set quota to allow our customers to focus more on building their sites vs watching their bandwidth limits.

Our storage allocations will remain the same; we do not offer “unlimited” disk space or storage space. Each plan has a hard set quota for storage.

Reseller Plan Bandwidth Increase

In addition to removing the hard set quotas for shared web hosting, we have also increased our bandwidth allocations for resellers, both traditional “single-server” reseller hosting plans as well as our cloud hosting plans. Our website will be updated over the next few days with the new specifications for all shared & reseller hosting plans.

WHMCS Cookie Exploit

From the WHMCS Blog: http://blog.whmcs.com/?t=81138

 

We are aware of a post that is circulating in which the author proposes an exploit via a cookie variable. However the proposed vulnerability is only possible if the attacker has gained access to a valid admin login session already through other means. For this reason, we feel that the viability of the vulnerability is not immediate nor is of a critical risk to installations.

We can confirm this vulnerability vector does exist as we have already identified and resolved it in our currently in progress internal security audit. We have in fact also prepared a refinement to the code that will negate the proposed attack vector and we anticipate publishing a new release of the software next week that will include this change along with others found during our internal audit.

In the meantime however, you may download the hook file below and upload it to the /includes/hooks/ folder of your WHMCS installation to negate any potential attacks based on this – although please note this will also prevent admin list ordering from working fully in certain places.

Cookie Override Hook – http://go.whmcs.com/262/cookie_override_hook

 


 

If you currently have WHMCS, we recommend that you follow the instructions for this patch. You’ll need to upload the file to your /includes/hooks folder as mentioned above & in the post made by WHMCS.
