Introduction

Dedicated Hosts are private computing nodes that are fully dedicated to a single customer’s use with no shared resources or noisy-neighbors. This service is ideal for any customer that has a growing need for powerful infrastructure, security, compliance, or is looking for the flexibility and cost-effectiveness that comes with having their own computing infrastructure.

Managing cPanel Licenses

Introduction

cPanel has updated their licensing structure for cPanel licenses and no longer offers an unlimited account license. Instead, they now offer tiers of cPanel licenses based on the number of accounts a cPanel server is configured to use.

We have updated our cPanel one-click app offering to allow a customer to choose the license count appropriate for their needs during provisioning/reprovsioning and switch to a different account license level as they wish.

Work with File Level Recovery

Introduction

File Level Recovery, a feature included with Atlantic.Net’s Cloud Server daily backup feature, will attach a file level backup to your Cloud Sever so that you can recover individual files from the selected backup. Note that backups attached longer than 24 hours are billed at 20 cents per GB per month until they are detached through the control panel.

This guide will cover how to attach, mount, and detach your File Level Recovery backup points and assumes you are already connected to your Server via SSH or RDP.

Protecting against Intel’s new L1TF speculation vulnerabilities

Josh Simon August 22, 2018 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

Intel recently announced a new security vulnerability called L1 Terminal Fault (L1TF) that affects all modern Intel processors and the virtual machines running on them.

In short, the L1TF vulnerability in Intel processors can allow a savvy attacker to expose the level-1 cached data from another virtual machine running on the same host processor core as the attacker’s virtual machine.

Since Intel’s announcement of L1TF we have been testing and working on deploying mitigations to secure our platforms against L1TF. We anticipate completion of these efforts across our global footprint within a few weeks. If any of these efforts require service affecting changes, we will notify you directly in advance of those changes being implemented.

What steps should you take to protect your environment against L1TF?

You should ensure your operating system within your virtual machines is up-to-date with all available patches applied.

In closing, new vulnerabilities will always be discovered by researchers and vendors and Atlantic.Net will always work diligently to protect our customers and offload much of the burden of addressing these vulnerabilities.

We will update this post as more information becomes available.
