    Happy Holidays from LexiConn!

    We wanted to take a moment to wish each of you a happy and healthy holiday season. Here’s to a successful and fulfilling 2022! We value our relationship with you, and look forward to being your hosting partner in the years to come.

    As we approach our 26th year of operation in the hosting industry, we consider ourselves fortunate to have such wonderful clients, and appreciate all of the relationships that we have built during that time. These last two years have been difficult for everyone in a multitude of ways and we hope that 2022 ushers in better times. Despite the real world volatility, we have worked hard during this past year to ensure stability and provide peak performance for all of our clients’ websites. This includes network upgrades, server performance improvements, more robust backup systems, and of course, our continued dedication to providing the customer support that you have come to expect.

    For our Magento clients, we have upgraded software and configurations to get the most out of things like Varnish, Elasticsearch, Redis, and the Magento software itself. As has always been the case, we fully support Magento/Adobe, both the Open Source and Commerce editions. Additionally, our malware/anti-virus monitoring software from Sansec has been upgraded, and we continue to improve our store monitoring system to detect issues as quickly as possible.

    The ShopSite software is still in regular development and receives major updates, as well as smaller maintenance releases. We offer and support the latest version available, while working with ShopSite to further enhance the product. We also fully support the Enterprise version, which brings stability and improved performance for larger stores, as well as the ability to tie into ShopSite more easily as it uses MySQL on the backend rather than SQLite3.

    In the WooCommerce / WordPress arena, we now have available a WordPress specific malware/anti-virus system that we can install for $20 per month. This tool scans all files and the database as well. We have improved our WP Rocket integration for faster cached pages. Improved support for a CDN through services like CloudFlare is also available.

    Thanks again for trusting us with your website hosting and we look forward to helping your business thrive in the coming year!

    Log4j Vulnerability Update

    Recently, a vulnerability in Apache’s log4j logging framework has turned the Internet upside down. It allows hackers to run code on any vulnerable server or computer, which can lead to a full compromise.

    Although the software is from Apache, it does not affect the Apache webserver. Only specific software packages that embed the logging library, most notably Java. However, popular Java applications like Elasticsearch and Tomcat are not vulnerable to this attack.

    Once we heard about this vulnerability, we assessed all of our servers and software, and we quickly determined that none of our servers were vulnerable to attack. We upgraded Elasticsearch across all servers as a precaution. We are confident that all LexiConn clients are safe from this vulnerability.
