New year, new server, new functionality

Happy new year everyone!

I recently migrated DI to a new server that should allow me to both fix some issues that have bugged the site for a while, and also introduce new functionality.

It’s been a frustratingly complex process — my old hosting account was the best part of 20 years old and running incredibly outdated software that made it vulnerable and incompatible with modern must-haves.

It’s been a bit of a learning curve moving to a more modern platform, and I haven’t ironed out all the kinks yet, but I’m happy to announce that as of today Domain Incite is now SSL-enabled and mobile-friendly.

I’m not a phone person. I can’t imagine ever wanting to look at a web site on a phone, but I know lots of people do, and readers have sometimes complained that DI wasn’t particularly easy on the eye.

If that’s you, it should be easier to read from now on. You’re welcome.

I’ve also installed SSL, something else I’ve been asked about frequently. DI doesn’t ask you for any sensitive information, so I don’t know why anyone would want their traffic encrypted. But now it is, whether you like it or not.

Please do let me know if you find any weirdness or bugs in either of these features, or indeed anywhere else on the site, and I’ll do my best to address them.

  1. I thought “mobile-friendly” meant responsive. Ah well.

    The mobile site looks completely different from the desktop site. I think the red is too bright, but that’s just my opinion. You also have a “sample page” accessible from the menu in mobile view.

    Well done!

    I’m noticing that on Firefox and Safari there’s no menu at the bottom of the page for going to previous pages. Mac OS X 10.12.6.

    “DI doesn’t ask you for any sensitive information, so I don’t know why anyone would want their traffic encrypted”
    Encryption protects your users from a bad actor injecting malicious code into the web page they receive.
    these days it’s simple to implement, free and benefits your SEO.
    Glad you got it done.
