We are moving to bigger, better, server. What does this mean for you? We’re glad you asked.
The server is essentially the computer that runs your website. It’s like when you get a new computer and you have to move your files to it. Though instead of a few folders and files there are about 2,464,254,932 files and folders to move. You will also get more features at the same low price you are currently paying. We will be cancelling services like advanced mail because they are now included, so users who were paying for these service before now get them at no additional charge. The transfers will begin on July 16th, if you need more time or assistance backing up your emails please contact support..
We are shifting our services to a faster, more reliable server which will move our uptime from 99.2% to 99.9%. Our new servers will also feature cPanel for account management and you can keep all your domains in one convenient location and manage them from one account. You will easily be able to access cPanel from your Innovative Solutions account so you can access all your domain tools in one convenient location. Bandwidth and storage are more limited than on our old servers but we have added other services that were needed and set our limits to a comfortable level. We also have real time server monitoring so if there is an issue we will know instantly.

We had an interesting virus infection on a netboook last week and thought it would be good to share. This was a 2 hour fight with a click hijacking malware, that functioned even after it was deleted.
In this particular instance, each click redirected the search to another search provider with a list generated from the search terms. The new links page has a click return for every link clicked. So the Hijacker was making money for every link you clicked after the redirect happened. Other hijacks can take you to fake websites that try to get you to enter personal information so they can try to steal things like social security numbers, credit card numbers, etc.
Guard yourself online. Only make online purchases from reputable stores and dealers. One thing to look for when buying from an online store is the address bar, is the page that you put your credit card info into http://www.websitename.com or https://www.websitename.com? The https uses a secure connection and is safer than a http connection. Using payment methods like paypal also help reduce the risk of fraud and stolen credit card information.
Also, you need a good Antivirus software. We don't recommend bloated software like McKafee. For our paid antivirus, Kaspersky Antivirus or ESET antivirus are our top picks. For free services we like AVG free and Comodo antivirus and firewall, Comodo can be bit tedious and is not for the fainthearted. If you are using a netbook any of these will most likely render it unusable. For netbooks we suggest Panda Cloud Antivirus because it is lightweight.
Also be wary of anything that offers to improve your search results or add a toolbar. Most of these are less than helpful. Using Mywebsearchbar over google is certainly not going to help your results. Use the providers you can trust like google, ask, yahoo, and bing.
Also be careful of any that prompts you to install special "codecs". If it won't play back with flash or media player you might want to find another place to watch it. If you download a file you are not sure about scan it before you open it. If you have an antivirus installed you can usually right click a file and choose "Scan with [your antivirus program name]" to scan the file before you run it.
