In this September issue ; Lot of Cloudflare updates, as cloudflare did expand in many new countries making it more interesting for clients to enable it. You can use the free version of Cloudflare simply from within your cPanel and enable the service from there. 

But certainly as important are the Wordpress 4.3.1 security release and our new service HardenedPHP for older versions of PHP.

We know that still a lot of users use PHP 5.3 and 5.4 ; this is the time to inform your clients about upgrading and keep your clients on board. For those who can really not upgrade the HardenedPHP may be a good alternative for now.

As always thank you for doing business with us, and we hope to bring more news soon.
