End of Life for LuxSci Internet Explorer 8 on XP Support

Published: August 2nd, 2015

As of November 1st, 2015, LuxSci will no longer support Internet Explorer versions 8 and below on Windows XP.  We will still support Internet Explorer v8 on Windows Vista and above (for a while).

What will be the effect of the dropped support?  Sometime after November 1st, 2015, users of Internet Explorer 8 on XP may no longer be able to connect to LuxSci.com or any web sites hosted by LuxSci, due to its lack of support for modern Internet security and usage features.

For customers who still use Internet Explorer 8 on XP, we recommend installing the latest version of FireFox or Google Chrome, as these will work fine even on very old operating systems, such as Windows XP, and will provide support for features we are enabling, which Internet Explorer 8 on XP does not support.

What is actually changing?

LuxSci will be making 2 changes after November 1st:

Interview with Mark Jeftovic, CEO of easyDNS

Published: July 24th, 2015

LuxSci has been partnered with easyDNS to provide DNS and domain registration services to its customers since 1999. Due to our sales volume, we have an “Enterprise DNS” portal that both LuxSci Support and its clients can access to manage their domains. LuxSci has stuck with easyDNS for all of these years due to their excellent support, the high quality of the DNS services, and the friendly and helpful attitude of easyDNS management. LuxSci also believes that by partnering with easyDNS, we are able to provide our clients with the best and most robust DNS services available. This is mission critical, because if your DNS is down, so is your business.

Query the LuxSci API for Email Sending and Delivery Status Reports

Published: July 16th, 2015

LuxSci’s API has been expanded to enable automated queries for reports of:

  1. What messages have been sent from SMTP and/or WebMail
  2. The current delivery status (tracking) of these messages
  3. Feedback loop notices for these messages
  4. The history of SMTP login failures and sending failures due to sender usage problems

All of these reports are available at the account level (e.g. to download information for one or all users in an account) and at the user level (where someone using the user API can query data about his/her own sending activity).  Each API request can return up to 50,000 matches or 50MB of data and you can easily submit multiple queries to “page” though very large result sets.  The queries support refinement by date range, customization of the number of matches returned at once, and include report-specific search capabilities so that, for example, you could find only message sent to a particular person or which have a particular delivery status.

These reports are available to all customers — business email, dedicated, and High Volume email sending.

SecureForm: API and Auditing Updates for Database Storage

Published: June 16th, 2015

Your web and/or PDF forms can securely delivery data to you in many ways using LuxSci SecureForm.  One of these ways, saving all of your form post data to a hosted database, is now even more useful:

  • Data can be downloaded and/or deleted using LuxSci’s API
  • Row-level Audit trails are now explicitly maintained or access to database-stored data

Form Database Access using the LuxSci API

LuxSci’s API enables SecureForm customers to manage form posts stored to hosted MySQL databases.  In particular, this makes audited access to stored (and encrypted) data simple, does not require any SQL knowledge, and permits you to determine if access is read only or read and delete.

Enable HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) at LuxSci

Published: April 27th, 2015

HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) protects your secure web site against “security downgrade attacks”.  E.g. it stops people from accessing insecure versions of your site or pages when secure versions are available.  This, in turn, helps prevent man-in-the-middle and other types of attacks on people using your web site.  HSTS is a very simple and very powerful tool that you can use to lock down the web site security provided by your SSL certificate.

LuxSci web hosting customers with SSL can now enable HSTS for their sites by simply checking the HSTS box in their web site configuration area. 

What are the benefits of HTTP Strict Transport Security?

They are many. HSTS can

SecureLine Message Center: Free, Secure Message Access Portal

Published: April 23rd, 2015

LuxSci customers send encrypted email messages to anyone using the SecureLine Escrow system — recipients receive a notification of their waiting secure message and click on a link to access it after either answering a security question or logging into their free SecureSend account to verify their identities.

The SecureLine Namespace and Message Center features enable your recipients to login and see a history of all secure messages sent to them from your users and to easily open, read, reply to, and delete these historical messages any time … at least until they have expired.  The Message Center also keeps copies of sent messages — so it enables free WebMail-like behavior in the SecureSend secure messaging portal
