Filed under: General — Newbiesite Admin @ 1:14 am


Internet is crawling with hackers who are looking for valuable information to steal. For this reason consumers are not willing to submit any personal details to a website. No doubt that sending credit card details and other sensitive details over an unencrypted internet connection is just like asking for trouble.

There is one simple solution for this; which is SSL Certificates which provides an effective way to secure your site against unauthorized interceptions. This makes all exchanges between the site and its visitors 100% secure and private.

What is SSL?

Secure Socket Layer is the most widely deployed security protocol now a days. It is a protocol that provides a secure channel for two machines operating systems over the internet. SSL creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitors’ web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of  data tampering, or message forgery.

How to configure email in iPhone?

Filed under: General,How to — Newbiesite Admin @ 12:34 am

iPhones are the emerging and the most rapidly improving phone/accessories in the word. Security is one of the main reason why they are at the pinnacle of success. Also these securities are very much a pain in “doing” work as it is not simple to even add an email account but I hope the steps below will help to put out your miseries for configuring email.

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.

2. Tap the “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” tab.

3. Tap “Add Account…”

4. Choose the type of account you want to add. If you add MobileMe, Gmail, Yahoo, or AOL, you’ll only have to enter your name, email address and password, then click Add. If you’re adding one of those, congrats, you’re done. If you need to select the “Other” option, continue reading.

5. Then tap “Other,” you’ll see a bunch of options but you can ignore most of them. Just tap “Add Mail Account.”

6. Enter your name, email address, and password. You can also enter a description of the account, which can be pretty much anything you want. When you’re done, tap “Next.”

7. You need to choose IMAP or POP.

8. In the incoming mail section you’ll see your host name (your IMAP or POP server) and username are left blank. Fill those in with the information you received from your email provider.

9. In the Outgoing Mail Server section, do the same thing. The information should be the same, but the host name might be different because this host name refers to your SMTP server. Your email provider will be able to tell you what the host name is, so be sure to ask if you don’t know. When you’re done, tap “Next.”

10. You’ll now be asked to choose what types of information you want to use with this account. Generally you’ll only have the option to get Mail and Notes. Mail will be turned on by default and notes will be turned off. If you want to store notes in this email account, change the slider to the on position.

11. Tap the “Save” button.

The truth is some spammers are out there looking for your mail id so that they can use it for their own benefits and can effect your reputation. iPhones prevent those crooks by maintaining a high level of security. That’s all thanks for reading enjoy your emails with iPhone.

Apache allows webusers to create special files called .htaccess with which access control and a range of apache defaults can be managed by the user itself. It basically allows you to manipulate the behaviour of the server.

Why .htaccess?

The reason .htaccess has such a name, and no file-type suffix, is to differentiate it from ordinary files, and to make sure that we do not create a file of that name by accident.

What is .htaccess mainly used for (incl. solutions)?

Let us consider the most common instances;

a) To create custom error pages/redirects for server errors

e.g. “404 Not Found”

Sample Solution –

Put the following line, or its modification in .htaccess;

ErrorDocument 404 /cgi-bin/404.cgi

b) To protect any part of the website, so that only proper users with valid usernames and passwords can access it. The .htaccess file specifies the limit of the protection only, it does not contain the actual username and password. These are stored in a different file called .htpasswd.

Sample Solution –

Put the following lines in .htaccess;

AuthName “Title for the Protected Area ”

AuthType Basic

AuthUserFile /path/to/.htpasswd

Put the username and password in the .htpasswd file;


Even though the .htpasswd file requires encrypted passwords, the user must enter them in clear text.

c) To change the way file extensions are normally treated. Usually, the server has a set of standard file types that it recognizes, but this changes that, and the way files are treated.

Sample Solution –

Put the following line, or its modification in .htaccess;

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html

This prompts the system that files with the extension .html, .htm, and files with the suffix .php, all be treated as standard HTTP documents containing PHP.

d) To change the default file name in a directory, so that it does not have to be called index.html or index.extenstion, but we can change it to call whatever we like.

Sample Solution –

Put the following line, or its modification in .htaccess;

DirectoryIndex mypage.html myindex.php index.html index.htm

e) To allow / prevent directory listings. This is mainly useful when we have an index page missing, and want to have other files remain invisible (prevent listing), OR when we want to upload data to the

server, and view its content from the browser.

Sample Solution –

Put the following line, or its modification in .htaccess;

To allow directory listing –

Options All MultiViews

To use normally when index file is missing –

Options +Indexes

To prevent directory listing –

Options -Indexes

f) To change or add file description and type information. If you have a file with a file type that is not recognized by the system, we can setup a file description to distnguish this from other file types.

Sample Solution –

Put the following line, or its modification in .htaccess;

AddDescription “Working filetype” .test

Hope this was short but descriptive enough to understand what an .htaccess basically does.

In other words .. .htaccess rocks!!

A secure connection to the server could not be established. Account: ‘accountname’ Server: ‘servername’, Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure (SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC1A

Fine tuning of apache with suPHP

Filed under: Web Hosting — Newbiesite Admin @ 4:03 am

Author : Ethan

The earlier version was PHPsuExec but that is quickly being replaced by suPHP and the two do basically the same thing. suPHP provides an additional layer of protection on servers.

On most Apache servers, PHP runs as an Apache module. This is the default method of installation. Many hosts have this setup because it is default and potentially they do not realize that it is also possible to configure PHP as a CGI. Running PHP as a CGI can be more secure whilst also avoiding file and directory ownership issues. (more…)

How to prevent iframe attacks?

IFrame Injection Attack is one of the most common and most basic cross site scripting attacks.

The HTML iFame tag allow authors to insert a frame inside a document. It is used to embed content from another page or site. Like all useful things, iFrame tags can be used for good or for bad.

An iframe attack is an injection of one or more iframe tags into a page’s content. The iframe typically does something bad, such as downloading an executable application that contains a virus or worm in it, something that compromises a visitor’s system. (more…)
