End of Support for Microsoft Frontpage Extensions

Microsoft stopped developing FrontPage Software in 2002 and ended its support in 2006. Since then many security vulnerabilities have been found in FrontPage extensions, effecting web sites using FrontPage extensions and other users on the server.  Our software vendor cPanel have decided to end support of FrontPage Extension and hence FrontPage Extension will no longer be supported on our servers beginning Dec 01 2014. 

If you are using FrontPage software to maintain your web site we recommend you use FrontPage’s FTP Upload option to update your web site.  Please feel free to contact our support team in case you have any further queries.

New ICANN Email Validation Policy

As per ICANN’s new Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), Beginning in January, the registrant contact will need to be validated upon the purchase or transfer of a domain name or if the registrant’s first name or last name has been modified. Should any of these occur, CPHosting will send an email requiring an affirmative response from the registrant. Failing to receive an affirmative response from the registrant within 15 days will result in the suspension of the name. The name will subsequently be placed on ‘ClientHold’ status, taking the domain (and related services) offline.

If a registrant has already validated their contact information, this process will not be initiated.

The same validation process will take place if a WHOIS Data Reminder Policy (WDRP) notice, 30 day expiration notice or 5 day expiration notice bounces. It will therefore be of paramount importance to ensure the WHOIS data you provide is correct.

These policy changes are not made by CPHosting, however as reseller domain registration provider they are imposed on us by ICANN.

Please note these policy changes are not made by CPHosting, however as reseller domain registration provider they are imposed on us by ICANN.  ICANN is an regulatory organization responsible for controlling domain name registry system on internet.
