      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.


When should you use SSL?

SSL is a must in any web browser now, whether that be a CloudFlare Free SSL or your own EV Certificate. It shows trust that you are protecting your visitors/customers data, however they interact with your website. As of 2017, Chrome have also implemented higher CEO results in search engines as well as the browser showing a grey "i" icon showing it is not a secure connection. Even a basic Comodo PositiveSSL Certificate costs barely anything per year ($7/yr) or Geotrust RapidSSL Certificate ($13/yr) - it won't break the bank - yet brings out the trust in a website,

@MannDude, @HalfEatenPie &@MartinD you might want to consider getting SSL for VPS Board as your SSL Certificate expired on the 5th of this month... Contact me if you need one - can give you a free PositiveSSL or RapidSSL if you need one...
