While Patchman might not be the newest cape crusader in the Marvel Universe, we do think you will benefit from it’s super powers.
Yep, that’s right FREE. We at SuperWebHost.com are offering FREE ID Protection on new purchases or renewal registrations for all .com domains.
Protecting your information is essential in this day and age. So why do so many domain owners not protect their information? Perhaps you didn’t realize that when you register a domain that the Name, Address, Phone Number and Email Address of the domain owner show up in public databases that anyone can access. SuperWebHost.com has always offered a protection service to allow you to hide this information for a small fee. SuperWebHost.com has now waived the fees associated with ID Protection, so there is no reason not to protect your private information.
What is ID Protection? Check it out here.
Add ID Protection to your .com domain purchase at checkout and your domain will be protected for FREE, as long as you have the domain registered with us.
Take control of who has your personal information with our FREE ID Protection today.
Keep an eye out for future posts, as we will be adding FREE ID Protection to other domain extensions in the near future.
Most domain owners don’t realize that the “Whois” database is available to anyone on the internet. Your name, address, email address, and phone number are only a few simple clicks away for anyone to see.
When you register any domain name you are required to provide your name, company name, address, phone number and email address exposing that information to potential spammers, fraudsters, marketers, or anyone else who may want information about you.
ID Protection is simply that, protection for your private information. With ID Protection in place on your domain name, your information will stay concealed. The domain registries will be given the name, address, phone number, and email address of our protection service rather than the information you used to register your domain.
Be sure to add our ID Protection to your new domain name at checkout!! This service is now offered free to all of our .com customers at the time of registration or renewal.
First let’s discuss some tips and tricks on how you can keep your email address from landing on spammers lists in the first place:
- Spammers can’t send you spam unless they know your email address, so try to keep it as a private as possible.
- When signing up for online services, forums, etc. try to use a dedicated address just for those sign ups, one that you don’t need to check often and that you don’t need to worry about whether it receives spam or not.
- Never put your email address on a guestbook, or in a forum signature
- For legitimate email use the unsubscribe links if you no longer wish to receive it, but for illegitimate email just delete it as some spammers may use the unsubscribe links to confirm the email is going to a valid address.
- Never click on links in spam email, some links are used to confirm that the spam went to a real email address and when the spammers know that they sell your email address to other spammers.
Even with these good habits in place I am sure you are still getting spam. So what can you do? We offer two tools a free tool that is included with all SuperWebHost accounts come called as well as our Professional Spam Protection package.
Here’s a little more information on both of those systems:
SpamAssassin comes pre-installed in the Email section of your cPanel control panel. SpamAssassin ranks emails based on an algorithm and the higher the number the more likely it is to be spam. In the SpamAssassin settings enabling SpamAssassin allows SpamAssassin to start ranking emails. Right below that is an auto-delete tool that allows you to set that all emails above a certain score are automatically deleted (most people start at a score of 5). SpamAssassin can take a little tweaking to find the right setting for your needs, but in general it is a very good tool and if you have any problems using it or want any advice just let us know and we are happy to help.
Our Professional Spam Protection package is for those users whom want even better control over their Spam. Our Professional Spam Protection package offers a more robust and intelligent scanning engine resulting in less false positives and false negatives as well as the ability to generate reports about mail, the ability to search the quarantine and more.
February is our Spam Awareness month. During this time, we would love to provide you with a 2 week free trial of the Professional Spam Protection, furthermore if you sign up in Feb we will discount the price from $36 per year per domain to $24.95.
If you have any questions about our Professional Spam Protection just let us know!
With every new year, we here at SuperWebHost, make New Year’s resolutions just as you might make at home. If you were to sum up our 2016 resolutions in two words it would be ‘positive momentum’.
Last year we launched our new cloud-based shared hosting service, and this year we will complete the roll out of that service. By the end of the first quarter all of our customers should be migrated to our cloud servers. These new cloud servers offer increased performance, security and reliability.
At the end of ’15 we also launched our new website, albeit not 100% complete, but by the end of the first quarter of this year the website will be finished. The new website includes this very blog you are reading with a number of different contributors. Our goal is to do more then just keep you updated about happenings here at SWH but also with some tips and tricks for your cPanel control panel, for WordPress, SEO and small business tactics and ideas.
I could go on and on about our plans for 2016 but I know your time is precious and I want to keep this short. So the last thing I want to mention is that we will be rolling out a number of new services this year. We know how important your IT needs and the digital side of your business is, but we are also keenly aware of the ever increasing amount of time it takes to manage those needs. As a small business you might not have the resources and time needed to juggle all of those pieces, and that is where we want to be an integral part of your business. We want to be the solution to some of those problems and free your time up so you can get back to running and growing your business and doing the things you should be doing.
