Functionality of our services and supporting our customer needs is a driving force here at 10Web. We like to listen to our users and figure out the best ways in which we can support them to thrive. For that reason, we have two very large releases for this period and some relatively minor but important releases. Read on to see what we have changed, added, and optimized.
With the growing demand of our users and the excitement of growth opportunities, we at 10Web have released, Multisite Support for websites connected to our user friendly and intuitive 10Web Dashboard.
Here are some of the highlights of the 10Web Multisite Support for the WP Multisite Network.
- Connect and manage third party Multisites.
- View and manage single sites within the user friendly and intuitive 10Web interface.
- Manage plugins, themes, and version updates for all single sites.
- Activate plugins for one site or the whole network.
- Enable Backup and Security services for the whole network only.
- 10Web Care, we’re always ready to help.
We have fixed and dusted off the old and optimized our Backup Services for a smooth backup system that doesn’t leave your data hanging.
What have we done?
We figured out that the logic by which our backup was functioning was not so “functional”. So we made some structural changes, asked the backup system to backup only the files that have changed and to archive them to be sent and stored for whenever they will need to be retrieved. Some major changes with major impact on how fast and smooth the service has become.
Exclude from Caching
Sometimes, there are dynamic pages that don’t need to be cached. We've added the option to exclude pages from cashing. Go to Hosting Services then Tools. In the Cashing section, you will see the field where you can specify the URLs you don’t want to cash. Enter the URLs here to exclude them from cashing and click Save. You can also exclude dynamic pages from Caching from your WordPress dashboard. Go to your WP dashboard, click on the 10Web Cache plugin, specify the URLs you don’t want to cache, and click Save.
User Profile: Personal Information & Security Section
Two sections of the User Profile page has been redesigned to correspond to the standards of 10Web’s intuitive and functional website design.
In addition to the design changes, in the security tab, you are now able to change the user email. Click on your profile picture and go to Account Settings. Click on the Security Tab then on Change Email. A popup box will appear. Enter then re-enter your new email address, and lastly, enter your current password then click Save Changes.
Login Attempt Limitation
To prevent Brute Force Attacks, we have added a WordPress login attempt limitation to 10Web hosted websites. To adjust login attempt parameters, you will need to define constants in the wp_config.php file:
The number of fails until user is blocked.
define('TW_LOCKOUT_TIME', '10800'); \\in seconds
How long the user is blocked.
define('TW_FAILED_ATTEMPTS_TIME', 300 ); \\in seconds
Timeframe within which user must fail in order to be blocked. For example; if user fails 5 times in 1 hour, user is blocked.
define('TW_LOCKOUT_MESSAGE ', ' You have been locked out due to too many invalid login attempts'); \\
Message when user becomes blocked.
