Securing your WordPress Multisite Network with an SSL certificate is highly recommended. An SSL certificate can protect your users data, increase user trust in your website and brand. Plus prevent your WordPress website from being hacked.
What is an SSL Certificate?
SSL certificates encrypt, or scramble, the connection between your WordPress website and your visitors device. Once for banks and online shopping, SSL certificates are now common place on the WWW. SSL certificates are most often used to secure websites, but also used to secure web servers, emails service and anything which requires a secure connection between two or more devices. Websites secured with an SSL display a small padlock, or green bar in your web browser.
Manage your self-hosted WordPress blog or website on the go, using your iOS or Android device and your Ecenica WordPress Hosting.
Today we outline how to publish content from the free WordPress App, to a WordPress website hosted on an Ecenica WordPress Hosting account. As we’re big fans of the Apple iPhone we do focus on the WordPress App for iOS. However, the good news is the app is also available for Android and shares the same features as its iOS sister app.
As of 26th January 2016, the payment for the renewal of your Ecenica service will be taken on the date the service is due for renewal. This change is automatic and you just need to make sure you have a valid payment stored in your secure Ecenica Dashboard.
We’ve made these changes to our billing process in responsive to customer feedback, and we hope this makes it even easier for you to keep track of your renewals.
Previously we took payments 7 day before the expiry date to allow time for any billing issues such as an expired payment card, to be fixed before your service was due for renewal. However since we upgrade our payment system in 2014 and made it even easier to update your card online via Ecenica Dashboard we think the benefits of bringing the transaction date inline with the renewal date outweighs the occasional billing issue.
Get your .UK domain name for FREE* when you register your .uk domain name with Ecenica.com before 7th Jan 2016
This month Ecenica have teamed up with Nominet, the UK domain name registry, to bring you a fantastic offer on free .uk domain names.
If you already own a UK family domain name – that’s a .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk domain name, and registered the domain before 28th October 2013 you may be eligible to take up your rights to the .uk domain name for free.
So, for example we currently own www.ecenica.co.uk, meaning we would be able to register www.ecenica.uk free for the first year.
How do I know if I’m eligible for a free .UK domain?
Unlike other domains, there are currently some limitations on who can register certain .uk domains. To find out if you’re eligible to register your free .uk domain name simply enter your preferred .uk domain name in Nominet’s Rights Lookup Tool.
To use the tool. Enter the .uk domain you wish to register with Ecenica, e.g. example.uk and click Lookup. On the next screen, you’ll see the lookup results. If the result shows “Domain name: example.uk, Right of registration: exaple.co.uk”, this means that the registrant of ecenica.co.uk has rights to the domain example.uk.
This offer isn’t around for long so make sure you register your free .UK domain name with Ecenica.com before 7th January 2016.
