- Warning on SCAM Domain Renewals 19/05/2014
If you have a website – eg “mydomain.com”
(no matter what the extension .com .com.au .org .biz etc. ) please take note of this warning.
Be it with Web South or someone else – Please be aware that there are a reasonable number of SCAMS around which try to fool you into changing your domain registration to them.

- Web South Hosting safe from Heartbleed Security Bug 10/04/2014
Have you heard of the Heartbleed Security Bug yet?
Security researchers have discovered a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, the cryptographic software library that protects many web sites on the internet. Here’s what that means for you, the average user.
For those hosting on Web South – I have been assured that our servers are patched and are safe from this bug.
If not and want an explanation why not read this story on Lifehacker by Whitson Gordon. Its explained in simpler terms and has other links if you want to know more.
Codenomicon have a website dedicated to The Heartbleed Bug as well.
The suggestion we have is to be constantly vigilant for anything out of the ordinary on any website.
