“(mt) Has Grown Into a Strong Brand Through the Word of Mouth”- Russell Reeder, Media Temple

Things go awry often for web hosting providers. Server crashes, down times, security issues, network problems are frequent, and there is only so much a provider can do to preempt such issues. With so many things potentially going astray, irate customers are rife, and things can get nasty behind keyboards easily. If not proactively handled, such instances can irreversibly damage a company’s reputation. Media Temple (mt) is one organization that handles such mishaps with great aplomb. One of the rare web-hosting providers that can boast of a passionate fan following, Media Temple stands out from the crowd with its top-shelf customer support. With its product lineup comprehensive and broad enough to appeal from a web designer to an enterprise, Media Temple has really grown by word of mouth to...

“.CO Provides Much More Value Than Just a Domain Name,” – Lori Anne Wardi, .CO Internet

I remember being very apathetical when the new generic top level domain (gTLD) application system opened on January 12, 2012. With the exception of .CO, new gTLD launches of the past like Biz, Info, Travel, Mobi, etc. had failed to marginalize .COM’s dominant position and there was no reason to think otherwise for the forthcoming ones. I’ve been proven wrong overtime. The industry has shown great interest in the new gTLDs. With as many as 1930 applications received by the ICANN, the new gTLDs are touted to be the next big thing in the domain arena. Their journey once they hit the market will be a very interesting one to watch; some of them’ll be successful and some won’t. But I genuinely doubt if any one of them will be able to have as big an impact as .CO has. The only e...

Exposing SnapDeal.com: India’s largest Online Shopping platform is unsafe and vulnerable to theft

Indian e-commerce is growing at an incredibly frantic pace. There are tons of new e-commerce sites mushrooming in variety of verticals spanning electronics, books, gift items, vitamin supplements, foreign importers etc. Unfortunately the awareness among Indian customers and e-commerce site owners regarding the risks of online scam, phishing and what not remains concerningly low. SSL Security is one basic step that every e-commerce site must take at the very minimum. Doing so will at least ensure that transactions between an e-commerce site and its customers remain private. This is critically important in India, especially because a large portion of the population there uses shared internet (i.e. cyber cafes). It has come to our attention that a very famous site known as SnapDeal.com which ...

CISPA CyberSecurity Bill Passes the House 288 to 127; Now to head to Senate

The House of Representatives have passed Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act on Thursday by a heavy margin of 288 to 127 after two days of intensive debate on whether the threat of “cyberattacks” was grave enough to justify the over-lingering privacy concerns. The bill which was moved  to the House  after a closed-door 18 to 2 vote, received  support from 92 Democrats and will now move to the Senate and then to the president Obama, whose advisers recently threatened a veto of the bill as it overrides the digital privacy of American Citizens. “In the case of Boston they were real bombs, in this case they’re digital bombs. And these digital bombs are on their way.”- said Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX), a vehement CISPA supporter to hard-press the need of pass...

Google Reader’s Death- Not the Wisest Move by Google!

Google is retiring Google Reader as a part of the overall pruning of its services. The doors of one of the most sought after services by Google will be closing on 1st July 2013, eight years after its birth. A company official cites the declining usage of the service and increasing popularity of Twitter as the major reasons for its planned retirement. For the uninitiated, Google Reader amasses feeds in RSS (or rich site summary) which is a format that creates stream from dynamic web content and provides people with the comfort and luxury of discovering the content and websites of interest and keep a tab over them. Many news aggregating services like Twitter are not as useful, as argued by many. It’s evident that the “social” aspects like Google+, Facebook etc. are being pushed u...
