Reset The Net


Today is June 5th, the day we reset the net . The idea behind reset the net is that if we properly secure our websites (and devices) with strong encryption, we can make mass surveillance much more difficult for governments.

We just wanted to remind our customers (and potential customers) that at Vanilla Forums we bundle SSL for all * subdomains on all plans at no charge. We can automatically redirect all your http traffic to https, just send a request to our customer support team.  Also, if you have a custom domain and would like to enable SSL, contact your account rep or customer support to get started. Finally, SSL is available for free on the Corporate, Enterprise and VIP plans. Check this post to learn more about Vanilla Forums and our SSL capabilities.

Last week, we updated to better showcase our product and the many new features that we’ve added over the past 12 months. We’d like to thank our customers for making it a great year and we want to let you know that the best is yet to come.
