All innovators face the reality that many, many things have been thought of already, and are patented is some markets. We have to work hard to ensure our ideas are not only useful, necessary, and cool, but also completely new and original. That's why it's so frustrating to see our efforts bogged down with frivolous patent lawsuits. The "trolls" are the often-shadowy legal entities who file these suits, sometimes hundreds of claims at a time, many without merit. Why? Because they can. There is little or no legal barrier or downside to their doing so in the USA, and the suits can cost millions to fight, while the trolls dangle settlements of tens of thousands to make them go away.
Unless you have spent the last year studiously avoiding Domain Name news, you probably know that there is something happening at ICANN this year. Yes, that's right, ICANN has authorized the creation of nearly 2,000 new top-level extensions over the next 3 years. That's a big number! Probably more than you will want to register. While this flood of new possibilities is exciting, and we do hope that it enables a lot of creative activity, we expect the new extensions to be seriously underutilized, for the most part.
It is now possible to add a SSL certificate to your websites hosted on our Simple Hosting platform.
Are you familiar with Gandi's SSL Certificates? We offer them for a single address, or wildcard (multiple addresses) in three types, and they can be used on domains at Gandi, or our hosted systems. Now, though, we offer them for anyone who has a domain, with Gandi or not!
More and more customers want to know how Gandi Simple Hosting differs from shared hosting offered elsewhere. We know our platform can seem a bit alien compared to other webhosts, and we promise to provide the more detailed technical description we think it deserves very soon.
In the meantime, here are the basics that make us different.
