I’m using a free SSL certificate bought from StartSSL on one of my WHM Cpanel hosted web site. Unfortunately StartSSL’s free SSL certificate isn’t wild card cert. It means that it cant be used domain wide ( ex- play.domain.com , games.domain.com ). I have added my StartSSL certificate to one of my domain which hosts a billing panel. And we all know that SSL certificates requires an dedicated IP so its just a waste of an IP to get another SSL certificate and install it to secure WHM and CPanel access. But I wanted to secure those connections without using a self signed certificate. Here’s how I did it,

You might remember about Liberty Reserve, the web site enabled people to send and receive money just like Paypal. But there was a problem with Liberty Reserve, it is that LR was mostly used by Cyber criminals. I know that there were people who used LR for genuine purposes but LR was the most famous currency among the hackers and pirates.
3 days ago Liberty Reserve’s founder and CEO Arthur Bodvosky belanchuk got arrested over in Costa rica because of the ongoing allegations about money laundering. And site is offline and pointing to different name servers. There aren’t any FBI notices or anything when you visiting the home page. Its just not available. Long time Liberty Reserve users knows that this is not the first time that Liberty Reserve owner got arrested but this time its hardly unlikely that LR will come back. People seems to lost thousands of dollars thanks to this raid. Read the comments on this venturebeat.com article.

According to the head of Google’s web spam team Matt Cutts, Penguin 2.0 update has been rolled out on 22nd of this month. I have wrote about it 4 days before it went live. These updates sometimes takes time to come in to the effect worldwide and you should be seeing changes now if Google Panda 2.0 affected your web site.
Personally for me I’m seeing a slight traffic drop after 25th of this month and it can be related to this update. Google is normally not announcing about their constant updates to the masses but this time Matt Cutts announced about the update early and as soon as it rolled out. Nice to see Google is actually willing to inform webmasters about their changes because in past these updates happened without informing anyone and we couldn’t ever know what caused our traffic to drop.

If you are a long time follower of this blog, you know that I have shown you how to unlock the voice calling functionality of Huawei HSPA USB dongles. That guide was easy but DC-Unlocker long time ago decided to stop the free voice unlocking service. Lots of readers have been asking me how to unlock voice calling. On this guide I will explain how to do this by sending commands (AT) to your HSPA dongle.
First you need to verify if your modem supports voice calls. To do that download DC-Unlocker and run it. It will detect your modem and display the information about it. [click to continue…]
Installing Nginx is easy thanks to the Nginx Autoinstaller but if you want to use Nginx with Cpanel you can do that easily with NginxCP . NginxCP is a Nginx auto installer for Cpanel. NginxCP installs Nginx on the front end as a reverse proxy to Apache. So this means that static files will be handled by Nginx. NginxCP integrates seamlessly with Cpanel and you can just set it and forget about it. Installing it is very easy. But installing it on current production environments is not recommended because things might break depending on your Cpanel version. [click to continue…]
