We started out with WordPress and RFE but, not knowing much about hosting, we strayed when a good friend of mine offered his services to us at a discount. What he neglected to tell us was, that unlike RFE, his service was only available when he was – and he was often out of town or away on holiday.

When our site went down at 2AM and I learned that he was on a cruise with his family, I went back to RFE who was fast to get us up and running, even though we had left them before! How is that for excellent customer service!

Any time we have a problem, which is always on my end, Aaron is fast to help us. Whether it’s a plug-in issue or just my ignorance of something so simple, I can always rely on Aaron to help me out, no matter what time of day it is!

If you’re looking for service that is reliable, dependable and there for YOU; THIS is it!

Changes to domain transfer policies coming in December

domaintransfer

Last week, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the organization that effectively governs Internet infrastructure, announced an official date for a new policy regarding domain name transfers for all gTLDs (non-country code domains). The change will go into effect for all users on December 1, 2016. While six months may seem like a while from now, the policy will require some adjustments, so we wanted to give all of our customers, partners, and developers as much time to prepare as possible.
The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy

ICANN is revising its Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) in an effort to reduce the risk of fraud and “domain hijacking.” It will now require domain name registrants to complete additional steps in order to confirm a transfer to another party. At the same time, it will also affect any domain name registrant making routine changes to their contact information. Here is a summary of the policy changes:

  • This policy comes into effect any time a gTLD domain registrant’s first name, last name, or email address is changed
  • Whenever a change is made, both the current registrant and the new registrant must confirm the change (even if those two are actually the same person or entity)
  • Both registrants will receive notification that the change is pending, and be given the ability to decline the change
  • After the change has been confirmed, the domain cannot be transferred to a new registrar for 60 days*

*ICANN does allow current registrants to opt-out of the 60-day transfer-lock period for domains transferred to new registrants. This does not change the requirement for both parties to approve the changes before they are applied.

If either the current or new registrant rejects the change, or if they fail to confirm the change within a certain time period (which RFE Hosting will set), then the transfer/change will be canceled, though the domain itself will not be suspended.

What this means for RFE Hosting end users:

  • Any time you change the first name, last name, or email address for a gTLD domain, you will receive an email to confirm the change. If you are transferring the domain to someone else, the new registrant will also have to confirm the change. If that change isn’t confirmed, the name or email address will stay the same.
  • Any time you confirm a change to the first name, last name, or email address for a gTLD domain, that domain will be locked into the same registrar for the next 60 days.

What RFE Hosting will be doing:

While this is a big change that will affect thousands of users every day, we’re committed to maintaining the stability, security, and compliance of the RFE Hosting Domain platform, and support our customers using the platform. We appreciate your patience as we continue working on the implementation of the policy up to the December 1st deadline.

What is managed web hosting?

What does managed web hosting mean to us?

Managed Web Hosting

This question is asked by newcomers and professionals, often. The questionable nature of Managed Web Hosting has more to do with hosting providers delivering additional managed services, than it has to do with an unclear definition.

Simply put, managed web hosting is when the web host (RFE Hosting) takes care of the day to day operations of the server so that you don’t have to. It used to be that managed web hosting was a term specifically applied to dedicated hosting. This is still the most prevalent use of managed hosting but you can find managed services these days applied to other hosting solutions such as co-location, cloud hosting or VPS.

Typically built into Managed Hosting are services such as hardware and software setup and configuration, maintenance, hardware replacement, technical support, patching, updating and monitoring. Also available, usually at an extra cost, are advanced services like malware vulnerability scans, DDoS attack mitigation, data backups, load balancing, firewalls, intrusion detection and more.
Each Managed Hosting provider is unique, so what services come standard can vary.

Our Managed Web Hosting Services are as follows:
