Hi Friends,

First of all New Year wishes from Book and Host.Sorry as i was away i was not able to wish you before.

We have done few changes and upgrades on our Linux Servers

The new server was installed on December 23th with the following features very few companies are having this much good servers like.

New Koala

SuperMicro X7DBR-E Intel Xeon QuadCore DualProc SATA [2Proc]
Intel Xeon-Harpertown 5430-Quadcore [2.66GHz]
Intel Xeon-Harpertown 5430-Quadcore [2.66GHz]
OEM 2GB ECC FB-DIMM DDR2 - 6 Nos (Meaning 12 GB RAM)
100Mbps Port speed

Few changes we have felt to be implemented to now make the servers run smoothly like

1. Disable Nobody Feature from our Linux Feature - Implementation in 3 days.

Disable the nobody option so user can send mail thru authentication only.
If user send mail from nobody it is very difficult to us to find out the user who is doing the spamming and in this period (When user is doing spamming) the user delivers thousand of mails from your server. If authentication is there we can find user within couple of seconds and prevent such type of issues.

2. Enable SuPHP server -Implementation in next 12 hrs.

SuPHP is more secure mode compare to another two mode (ie. DSO, CGI), which Linux server support for PHP.

1. Security!
With SuPHP enabled, all scripts are run as the user. If you have a website that gets hacked and the hacker uploads a script, that script is going to run as the user

2. Ability to easily tell what users' web applications are using up system resources.

1. On a server with a lot of sites, it's inevitable that you encounter a few problems where website scripts haven't been changed to the appropriate permissions and thus will not run. Contents of the users web directory must be recursively chowned to user:user. PHP scripts needs to be chmod 644 or less. CGI scripts need to be chmod 755 or less. Directories need to be chmod 755 or less.

2. ‘php_value’ or ‘php_flag’ statement delineated in .htaccess will not work so your user have to comment out those line which started from . ‘php_value’ or ‘php_flag’

3. Install ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (cxs) implementation in next 24 hrs.

We would be proceeding with this process and would be in place by 6th Feb,2010. We understand that providing safetey and security and top most service is the very important criteria for the services been provided so we have taken this decision to ensure that our servers are free from any spamming activities or even vunerable attacks.

Hope you would support us in this senario and do the needful, if you face any issue in the due course please send email to support@bookandhost.net and they would reply you at the earliest.Alternatively you can even call our Call Center Number - 91 891 6637033

With Best Regards,
