Joomlashack is currently researching which hosts people use, have used, or will never use again to host Joomla websites. We want to know the good, the bad, and the ugly to get a better grasp on the popular hosts, the good hosts, and the bad hosts.
For those of you who would like to take the time to give an honest and informative assessment of hosts that you have used, Joomlashack will give you a 20% discount voucher toward any order in our shop.
Post a reply in our community forum detailing your web host experiences, and we'll send you an email with that 20% discount voucher code.
Brad Baker, the man behind the curtain at the joomla.org forums made his first dev blog post a few days ago. He talked about some of the traffic that joomla.org gets. What was most interesting is that joomla.org just broke an Alexa rank of 500. That means it is now one of the 500 most visited site on the web.
He also noted that the forums are one of the 30th biggest on the web.
Rob Schley just posted some interesting news at the main Joomla dev blog:
"During what is called the ìDeface Realtime Compoî Competition up to 150 Security Specialists, hackers, and crackers bomarded the CMS with attacks for 2 days straight without success. Both Joomla! and PHP-Nuke were evaluated during the competition and both systems received positive evaluations. Along with the positive evaluation, we received a certification from the WebSecure Group, declaring that Joomla! was reliable and recommended for use."
Its good to know that 150 hackers can't break into Joomla after two straight days. You can read more about it and the associated forum post on the Joomla dev blog.
