What is cache? Why is it important?

We all visit websites and notice sometimes it seems to load faster than usual, and sometimes it takes longer than usual, especially when you notice that the page content seems a bit different, meaning the owner updated the website. This is often due to the cache. Cache is often useful, but also often the reason …

What is a DDOS Attack Mitigator?

DDOS Stands for Distributed Denial Of Service (attack). A DDOS Attack sends more data to a target, like an IP Address, or a website, than it is actually capable of handling.

Does SSL/TLS aka HTTPS Connection matter?

Most of us go to websites, see http:// “Not Secure”, rather than “Secure” with https:// and think it is still fine, even if you are submitting your login information. Although, on some websites, this does not matter, like if you are just viewing a static website with ONLY text and images, and no forms or …

You can create an entire internet organization website with no money.

You may have noticed, Swivro is a nonprofit organization, yet we pay for our domains, CDN’s, and more, yearly or monthly.  You might have wished once that you could create your own organization, maybe a bit similar to Swivro, but you cannot afford to pay for your domain, your web hosting, your SSL certificate, and …

You shouldn’t use a web based password generator, use Blumon instead.
