    Recent DDoS attacks,another level of protection has been added.

    As you may know, we've been experiencing DDoS attacks lately which were aimed at our forums in order to take us down for a short period of time, however, in order to block such attacks, we've protected our web with CloudFlare, which means every IP and every web application will go through the cloud for a threat check, every connection and application which delivers a high amount of packets will be blocked, logged in the database and stopped from reaching our web nameservers to ensure you a smooth connection without interrupts.

    If one of our server goes down, CloudFlare will make sure a cached offline version is delivered to you, so you can continue browsing and doing your activities without any interruptions and issues.

    We've also equipped ourselves with an SSL connection before few months to make sure all your data such as passwords, online payments & personal data is handled privately and encrypted using a secure TLS connection and cipher suite, which means everything you do on our forum, web or marketplace is highly secured and cannot be accessed by any third party!

    Wondering what's SSL?
    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser; or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook).
    SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server they can see and use that information.
    More specifically, SSL is a security protocol. Protocols describe how algorithms should be used; in this case, the SSL protocol determines variables of the encryption for both the link and the data being transmitted.

    Understanding the HTTPS connection and the green padlock.
    You should see a green padlock at the URL bar aswell as a HTTPS protocol when connecting to our webpage, forum and marketplace, this means your connection is secure.

    Not seeing the green padlock? Don't worry about it! Aslong as your connection is handled trough HTTPS protocol everything's fine, the reason that you don't see the padlock is either a picture, emoji or a file delivered through a HTTP protocol instead of HTTPS from another site, such as this image - http://i.imgur.com/0fpXIDG.png !
