A recent blog post from your FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, a former lobbyist for the cable and wireless industries, discusses his plans for new “open” internet rules, rules that many people feel will allow content providers to buy faster internet connections possibly leading to preferred treatment or extra fees for certain content providers. To most this seems to go against the very idea of Net neutrality, ” the idea that companies should treat all internet traffic equally”. What do you think? Check out the following article for more information.

Exciting changes to TierraNet and DomainDiscover

There are some new and exciting changes coming to TierraNet and DomainDiscover. This will be the first in a series of videos aimed at highlighting what’s new with our site and services. Take a look and let us know how we can help you put yourself on the web.

WordPress 3.7 “Basie”

WORDPRESS_3.7

Hey everyone, we wanted to let you know a new WordPress update is now available for download! Here are some of the features.

  • Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
  • Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
  • Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.
