A new version of the website was released today written using WordPress. It’s still in beta, so there will be a lot of changes forthcoming. The website was launched early so that it can start handling new content for the year.
- Transferred idaikkaduweb.com, idaikkadu.net and idaikkadu.org to another hosting provider. Response time is improved, and costs have been cut in half. (I’m sharing the hosting account with another website that I host – win, win)
- Assigned a dedicated IP address to idaikkaduweb.com
- Installed a self-signed certificate for HTTPS use on idaikkaduweb.com. Only using HTTPS for the admin pages for now. I would like to use full HTTPS for the entire site since HTTP -> HTTPS transitions are subject to ssl stripping attacks. Unfortunately, self-signed certificates present security exceptions to users. I don’t think most of our user’s would know how to proceed past the warning.
