    WeLoveServers Sold to HostWinds

    Oh, absolutely. I've done my share of ranting towards ZPanel and Sentora. I just feel that these events reflect very poorly on HostWinds, and they were the topic of the thread :)

    WeLoveServers Sold to HostWinds

    Depends on how you define "hostile takeover", I suppose. The way things played out certainly leaves a sour taste in my mouth. And yes, this is absolutely the place to discuss this. EDIT: By the way, I don't know what exactly you believe you've purchased, but it's certainly not ownership of...

    This is advertising, not news.

    WeLoveServers Sold to HostWinds

    This seems to be missing from this thread: HostWinds are the guys involved in the hostile takeover of the ZPanel project (leading to the Sentora fork).

    Are the servers themselves hosted with Voxility? Or are you tunneling?

    Who uses Stripe for payments? Beware, they seem to not validate cards.

    It was true then as well :) Anyhow, hadn't realized this was grave-dug.

    Who uses Stripe for payments? Beware, they seem to not validate cards.

    This is a red flag. If they are still "fixing SQL vulns", that means they are not using parameterized queries. That's really not acceptable in 2015, and makes them negligent. The entire concept of "SQL vulns" doesn't exist when using parameterized queries.

    RA4W LLC|UK|Voxility 500Gbps DDoS Protected|1 Gbps|SSD|Starting from $2/month

    Footer states 500gbps mitigation, About page states 700gbps. Also, Voxility doesn't operate in the UK, does it?

    NodeJS Async function help!

    Basically, you'd use Promises. Any kind of looping or conditional asynchronous work is very hard to get right with callbacks alone. I've put together a reading list about Promises here, that should get you started - Promise.map is most likely what you're looking for in particular :)

    When should you use SSL?

    $5/year for a rubber stamp is a significant cost if you run many non-commercial projects. It gets far more expensive if you need eg. a wildcard certificate for dealing with subdomains. As for complexity, you are overlooking many aspects of SSL/TLS configuration (think HSTS and HPKP, for...

    Programming Language

    Nearly every modern language works cross-platform, many of them out of the box. Qt is a cross-platform solution for building graphical interfaces that has bindings for just about every language. There are JS runtimes for mobile platforms as well - Cordova and PhoneGap come to mind. There's...

    Programming Language

    You don't need Java for any of those things, except for perhaps Blu-ray.

    When should you use SSL?

    Well, no, it's not easy (yet) - at least not to do it correctly. And it isn't exactly cheap either. I'm hoping that Let's Encrypt will resolve both of those issues.

    When should you use SSL?

    Always. No exceptions. Let's Encrypt (which should be launching next month) will make this more feasible for free.

    want a VPS 100% DDOS Protected

    Pay Prolexic an ungodly amount of money, and have them fix it for you. Or if you can't afford that, settle for less than 100%, get something cheap with reasonable DDoS mitigation, and hope it holds up.

    want a VPS 100% DDOS Protected

    Right, that's exactly the problem. You're not going to get "100% DDoS protection" for $40, it just isn't economically possible. Anybody who is claiming that they will provide you with that, is lying to you. You can get pretty good DDoS mitigation on a budget, it just isn't going to be 100%...

    want a VPS 100% DDOS Protected

    None. If you want an absolute guarantee, no matter the attack size, you're going to pay a hell of a lot more than a $5/mo mitigation add-on, and you'd use a provider like Prolexic that specializes in this kind of thing. No VPS provider will be able to offer you this kind of guarantee - even most...

    No Disparagement Clauses

    This will likely be illegal in many countries. In the Netherlands, I believe it falls under section h. of the the "graylist for consumer contracts" (click). In the case of the graylist, the seller must prove that the contract clause is necessary and reasonable; otherwise, it is illegal and...

    Ikoula Cloud Hosting Review

    The reason I see, is that you've registered on here and almost immediately posted a thread containing just a link to your own blog, without the content itself. This is not an advertising board. If the duplication is an issue, then you could also just not post it here at all - after all, the...
