At Canadian Web Hosting, we strive to offer you the latest products and technologies so that your site(s) are easily managed, giving you more time to focus on business. We have integrated cPanel/WHM into our current architecture allowing for a highly stable interface from which to manage your account.
The release of cPanel 11.40 has many updates and new features which offer users advanced control of their hosting accounts. Some of the major revisions include:
Website editor – offering clients an editor which allows users to make changes directly to their websites from the File Manager. As part of this, the interface has been revamped to be more user friendly and allows user to see exactly how their site will appear to visitors.
Security Advisor – integrated security scanning tool that will check for misconfigurations, out of date system components and much more. Identified vulnerabilities will be listed and rated by severity and noted with tips on how to eliminate the issues. You can also get the Canadian Web Hosting support team to assist as well.
Logaholic – the improved environment offers users enhanced interface, log viewing, and integration.
Improved Speed and Scalability – the control panel has been optimized so that users can focus on their site creation and not on maintenance.
There have been many more features added and extended upon with the latest version of cPanel/WHM which we are excited to be able to offer for our clients. For the complete list of features and improvements you can check the cPanel website:

Vancouver is a unique place with great diversity, technology and ideas in every area that you look. Because of that, Vancouver has really become a driving force behind technology innovation and disruption.
Canadian Web Hosting has a unique opportunity to see this first hand and recognize that as larger companies continue to take notice and open offices locally, it has really become a great time for young entrepreneurs to get their ideas out in the open.
Canadian Web Hosting has been an active sponsor with local organizations like BCIT, Kwantlen College, and Zen Launchpad offering discounted or free cloud hosting and services for startups and young entrepeneurs who are building new businesses, websites or apps supporting their ideas. As part of this, we had the opportunity to participate and act as judges for the Grizzly Den Elevator Pitch Contest.
As one might expect, we saw some really great ideas and several of the businesses look like they are ready for primetime and have the potential to move forward.
Thank you to all the participants: SportConnect, Studdle, Drawtivity, MuvMnt Apparrel, IrideBC, Wingman, ICLST, Discuento, CrowdrApp, BCIT and Me, Banana Action, AnotherRound and also to Cyri Jones for extending the invitation to Canadian Web Hosting. We look forward to the next pitch event on the 29th.
Anybody interested should feel free to stop by at the Zen Launchpad.
Every three to five years, we get a product upgrade that has a significant impact on many products that we use - dedicated servers, desktops, cloud servers, shared hosting that has the potential to change how customers use our Canadian Web Hosting services. That technology upgrade is RAM. Specifically at the end of 2013, companies like Crucial, Micro, Samsung and Adata are expected to start rolling out their DDR4 Memory technology. This new technology is engineered to pack more performance into your system and has the potential to double or triple the available density per module. This is a continuing theme for dedicated server and technology partners as everyone works to make systems and components more dense, more efficient with less cost for end users. Moreover, DDR4 modules will use up to 20% less power than the previous versions, and will enable data rates that are at least twice as fast as current DDR3 memory.
So what is DDR4? The Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) signed off on a final DDR4 standard this summer. But a draft of the spec and its key attributes was actually issued last year. Those preliminary specs call for DDR4 memory to operate at a maximum of 1.2 volts (20 percent less than current DDR3 memory) and achieve data transfer rates of 3.2 billion transfers per second (double that of the top-end speed of DDR3's memory bus).
Initially, most DDR4 modules from companies like Micron and Crucial will handle transfer speeds of 2.4 billion transfers per second, with later versions ramping up to the 3.2 billion memory transfers per second at the top-end rate. Right now, that translates to roughly the same number of bits per second in throughput. However, note that Samsung has advertised a throughput of 2.113 gigabits per second for its DDR4. The "DDR" in DDR4 is an acronym for "double data rate"—all DDR memory moves data across the memory bus twice for each cycle of the bus' timing clock. That's the most primary bit of architecture that DDR4 shares with its predecessor. Instead of using multiple shared channels to link memory units with the CPU's memory controller, each DDR4 memory module has its own dedicated point-to-point connection.
Aside from the reduced power consumption, DDR4 RAM also reduces overall power requirements through an improved version of the pseudo-open drain interface (POD) logic, a technology that is also used in DDR3 RAM. POD logic interfaces draw no current except when they're flipped to their low state.
So, what isn’t there to like about DDR4? It will make my cloud servers, dedicated servers and every other web hosting service perform better. DDR4's technical advances do come at a price. The first is finding a way to accommodate the additional memory connections. While the point-to-point architecture gives DDR4 the ability to read and write more data per cycle that becomes increasingly challenging to handle the large amounts of memory. With some of the servers that Canadian Web Hosting is preparing to deploy, these new servers use high-speed digital switches in order to reduce the number of direct memory channels connecting to the CPU's memory controller.
All in all, DDR4 RAM means that you will process your data twice at least twice quick, make your websites or applications much faster and end users will experience improved responsiveness for each interaction for your website or hosted application. As today’s applications require more and more resources, your preferred tools like Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress will work faster and more efficiently without any added cost. Crucial created a great graphic demonstrating the performance differences and improvements that DDR4 RAM provides.

Yesterday, Microsoft released information regarding a Zero-Day vulnerability in a number of their Operating Systems and office applications. This can result in corruption of memory on the systems in these affected platforms. A hacker can gain administrative access to a PC using a specially formatted “.tiff” file. This would be an image file, generally attached to an email or sent to the user which would have to be opened by the user. For Canadian Web Hosting Windows web hosting customers, Windows server 2012 operating systems is not part of the vulnerable OS, but Windows Server 2008 may be vulnerable.
The following products are vulnerable to this exploit:
- Windows Vista x86, x64
- Windows Server 2008 x86, x64, Itanium, Server Core
- Microsoft Office 2003
- Microsoft Office 2007
- Microsoft Office 2010 x86, x64
- Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack
- Microsoft Lync 2010 x86, x64
- Microsoft Lync 2010 Attendee
- Microsoft Lync 2013 x86, x64
- Microsoft Lync Basic 2013 x86, x64
With anything, we remind all of our Canadian Web Hosting customers to stay vigilant and do not open any attachments from email addresses not familiar to you. In addition to Microsoft products, it is a good time to remind everyone to keep their web hosting applications up to date and examine your security framework like malware scanning, firewalls and intrusion prevention that helps protect your business and your customers data. Microsoft has stated they will take appropriate action, releasing a security update within the month. If you have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1.888.821.7888 and we can check your windows server.
