WordPress “PHP Update Required”

8 June 2019 09:26:11 +0000
Wordpress warning.

WordPress warning.

A number of clients have contacted us because they’ve noticed that WordPress is now displaying an ominous message on their dashboard that states, “WordPress has detected that your site is running on an insecure version of PHP.” This, unfortunately, is gratuitous, self-serving fearmongering (often referred to as “FUD“) on the part of WordPress the organisation. However, what is true is that version 5.2 of WordPress requires a higher version of PHP than our operating system vendor currently supplies. Therefore, providing the necessary version of PHP will require more work than just clicking a mythical “upgrade PHP” button somewhere, as some assume we just need to do.

Please be assured that we are alive to this issue, and are working to address it as soon as we can. However, it will likely take at least a couple of weeks.

Thank-you for your patience.

Right of registration to second-level dot-uk domains expires soon

7 June 2019 14:53:35 +0000

As you may be aware, Nominet (the registry for all dot-uk domains) now makes available registrations at the second level. This means you can now register your-company.uk, as well as or instead of your-company.co.uk — or even your-name.org.uk and other third-level domains.

As part of this process they have determined that existing owners of dot-co.uk domains have the first “right of registration” to a dot-uk domain corresponding to their existing dot-co.uk registration. In other words, if you are already the registrant of something.co.uk, you have the first right of registration to something.uk, before someone who might own something.org.uk, for example. However, this right expires on 24 June 2019. After that date anyone will be able to register any dot-uk domain, even if it is the same as your existing dot-co.uk domain, but without the “.co” part.

If you register a dot-uk domain corresponding to an existing dot-co.uk domain you will have several options with respect to the hosting of your website(s) and/or email. If you host with NinerNet, please contact us to discuss your options, or contact your hosting company if you do not host with NinerNet. If you do host with NinerNet, we can “alias” your new dot-uk domain to your existing dot-co.uk (or dot-org.uk) domain for no additional hosting charges.

If you would like to register any or all of the second-level dot-uk domains to which you are entitled, please contact us and we will work with you to register it/them before the deadline.
