  • On November 10, 2016, OfBlue successfully moved to a new server. Here are some key points:

    1. IP changed, but you don't need to change your hostname if you're already on ofblue.org.
    2. Prices slightly changed and new package options are available.
    3. New WHM/cPanel login URL (sapphire.ofblue.org:2086 / sapphire.ofblue.org:2082)
    4. cPanel licensing *should* not be an issue anymore.

  • As OfBlue Hosting progress, we are improving ourselves one way or another. This time around, we are giving you a few updates about our security features. We are doing our best so you can have your site on a safe server and be happy working on your site without worrying that the server is vulnerable. We do our best to keep your site safe! 

    Some general tips of suggestion:

    • Update your scripts (such as WordPress) when possible ASAP.
    • Don't install scripts, themes, or plugins you don't use.
    • Don't share your account information.
    • Don't browse through sensitive data in an untrusted/public network.

    What we are doing on our end:

    • Implementing and adjusting security settings as needed.
    • Updating scripts on the server side.
    • Force updating the scripts on the client's side if they failed to update after a period of time.
    • Running a virus scan throughout the server.
    • Have remote backups in case a catastrophe or two happens. 

    Last note: We updated our server to MySQL 5.6. Let us know if you have any problems. We will be updating Apache shortly.
