Miss Group guarantees safe and secure DNS

2018-11-28 — by Anna Göransson

Miss Group now offers customers the opportunity to secure their domain with premium DNS.

Name ISP (a subsidiary of Miss Group) and Excedo Digital Management have collaborated for ten years. To strengthen the partnership, Excedo’s global DNS service – Excedo Premium Anycast DNS – will now be available by just a click at Name ISP. It will also be available for the other brands that are part of Miss Group.

“Now, customers can secure their domains by simply placing an order for an upgrade directly in our control panel,” says Frei Leufven, CTO of Name ISP.

Excedo Digital Management Services (a subsidiary of Excedo Networks AB) started a collaboration with NameISP.com in 2008. Both companies are technology organizations with specialists that place high demands on both security and operation, and they complement each other well.

Excedo Networks AB is an Internet service provider focused on data security and data communications, where Excedo Digital Management Services works to provide digital services and the entire value chain in digital presence and identity.

Name ISP are domain experts which goes hand in hand with data security and data communication, to work optimally. Frei Leufven believes that the cooperation between the two companies is more important now than ever before.

“The security requirements have increased, and the more domains we handle, the more we end up in a position where we have a responsibility of a socially critical function. We have had to raise the bar for secure DNS and that’s why we chose to turn to Excedo for a deeper cooperation“ says Frei Leufven.

Safe premium service one click away
Name ISP is one of Sweden’s largest domain registrars and most known for their domain registration services. They are a certified registrar of TLD’s and manage all domains under the same roof whether it’s .se or .com, or something else. The enhanced collaboration now leads to the ability of Miss Group’s customers to access Excedo’s premium service, through Name ISP. The Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service is one of the strongest in the market today, and is used by customers in, for example, public administration and municipalities. By clicking in the Control Panel of Name ISP, customers receive an upgrade that secures their domains, while low price prints are promised.

“It is now a lot easier for customers to upgrade, and to buy a secure and safe service beyond the usual. Most people know that they need to upgrade, due to the increasing security requirements, but they assume that a DNS re-delegation can lead to downtime. With our integration, the order is really easy, and Excedo’s DNS experts take care of everything behind the scenes without any disturbances,“ Frei Leufven continues.

Upgrade as an insurance
As long as a website or intranet works properly, it’s all peace and joy. It’s when there is a crisis or something unpredictable happens that you notice how good your system is. Frei Leufven believes that for customers, an upgrading of the system is like signing an insurance policy.

As a customer, you have to understand that you need to upgrade, even if everything works today. Because when an accident occurs, you want everything to be resolved quickly and easily,” says Frei Leufven.

The collaboration between Excedo Digital Management Services and NameISP.com will make it easier for our customers to
upgrade their systems, ensuring that everything is safe. Michael Duffy, CEO of Excedo, looks forward to the continued cooperation.

”Name ISP is the leading provider of domain-related services through its ability to easily register TLD’s from all over the world. Through expanded collaboration, Name ISP’s customers gain access to Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service with 100% SLA and access to DNS expertise in the area. If you run a business critical company, Name ISP’s customers get an opportunity by upgrading from a Standard DNS to Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service,“ Michael Duffy concludes.

The offer includes:
1) Access to a global DNS service, with 57 POPs globally across all continents.
2) 100% SLA on name resolution, always available.
3) Extreme redundancy distributed over several autonomous systems.
4) Access to experts and specialists in DNS.
5) Surveillance 24/7/365.
6) Everything integrated into the same control panel.
7) A low price for a strong service (99 SEK).

BGF-backed Miss Group has acquired Hemsida24 along with its sub-brand HEYMO. Hemsida24 is an internet-based sitebuilder for websites and e-commerce and has delivered solutions for small and medium-sized businesses in Scandinavia since 2008.

Hemsida24 also contributes with an EBITDA of 1 million Euros” said Mattias Kaneteg, founder and CEO at Miss Group

Ludvig Granberg, Co-founder & CEO at Hemsida24 added: “When we started Hemsida24 ten years ago I could never imagine that we would have more than 14,000 customers and such a great team. To continue to grow from here Hemsida24 and Heymo needs to be part of something bigger and this is where Miss Group comes in. I’m truly impressed with their expertise in marketing, sales and growth and I’m confident that Hemsida24 and Miss Group will continue to grow into something much larger.”

High-growth Miss Group, a web hosting company, has received a £6.4m investment from BGF to accelerate its international expansion strategy. The group will use the funding to build further scale through driving organic growth and acquisition of web hosting companies in new and existing markets.

Founded by serial entrepreneur Mattias Kaneteg and headquartered in Manchester, Miss Group provides a range of services predominately to SMEs, including domain registration, site building, website hosting and email management.

Since its launch in 2014, the group has opened more than 70,000 accounts, established offices in Stockholm, Miami and Sofia and have also acquired two businesses in the UK and USA with the assistance of Manchester-based Corporate Financiers, Sedulo. Miss Group now employs more than 50 people globally and has developed a reputation for high quality customer service with a 9.8 rating on TrustPilot.

He is also Chair of BGF-backed Virtual1 and has successful built and exited multiple businesses in the technology sector.

Mattias Kaneteg, founder and CEO of Miss Group said: “We have moved at pace to add scale to our platform, improve our market share and increase our global coverage. Now that we have an established model and highly successful marketing campaigns which have generated strong organic growth, we are in a strong position to accelerate our expansion through acquisitions.

“As our minority partner, BGF provides access to a large network both in the UK and internationally and potentially more funding as we expand. We are very much looking forward to working with them.”

Pinesh Mehta, an investor at BGF who will join the Board of Miss Group said: “With a proven track record in building successful businesses, Mattias and his team have quickly scaled Miss Group by attracting and retaining a high volume of customers. This is testament to the group’s model, relationships with customers and partners, and focus on high-quality service.
“Miss Group has a clear and well thought out international growth strategy which they are ready to push ahead with. We’re delighted to be supporting this and to be backing such an ambitious, innovative and professional team.”

The investment in Miss Group was coordinated by Stuart Dutton of Sedulo, and led for BGF by Pinesh Mehta, Rhys Davenport and Neil Inskip who are part of the Manchester-based team covering the North West. The team recently announced investments in the owner and operator of Albert’s Schloss and Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza, Mission Mars, and digital mapping company Gaist.

Google Chrome removes the green ‘Secure’ lock on HTTPS sites

2018-08-31 — by Alexandra Linnuste

secure-2-960x502.jpg

Google says security should be so normal you don’t see it. But bad security should be in your face.

Today when you visit a HTTPS website on Google’s Chrome browser, a green security lock is shown telling you that you’re visiting a secure page that’s encrypted and protected from cyberattacks. Google’s goal is to make sure 100% of the internet is HTTPS.

By May 2018, 83 percent of websites visited by people browsing on Chrome were HTTPS. It’s gotten to the point for Google where you’re much more likely to visit an HTTPS page on Chrome than a HTTP (nonsecure) page. In other words, people understand the importance of having a secure website and if something is the norm, you don’t need a label telling you that everything is normal. Therefore in september, Google will remove the “Secure” label and will eventually stop displaying the lock, too.

With this update, Google makes it clear that having HTTPS is the norm and not having HTTPS is not, which means that they will display even more warnings when a website is not using a SSL-Certificate – A warning icon and “Not Secure” label in the URL bar. This will start showing in October.

If you are late to the game, still not using a SSL-Certificate, now is the time! See our prices for SSL-Certificates here:
