Dear clients, friends and fans
Wow, what a week
As most of you might have noticed, newGNi underwent a severe DDoS attack earlier this week.
After consultation with the management team of our hosting provider Dragonara, we were able to work out a higher protection level for our site and the necessary steps were taken within hours.
Upgrading the DDoS protection level requires an almost completely new server configuration. Since every server configuration is different, there is no out of the box solution. So our tech staff needed to twist the settings a bit here and there, until everything was fine for everyone. While for 99% of our members everything worked satisfactory after the upgrade, some however encountered minor difficulties.
Today then, the second surprise of the week: Members informed us that our domain newgni.com was not accessible, due to the suspension of our domain by our registrar, for unknown reasons. – Nevertheless, we were aware of the vulnerability of .com domains and took precautions months ago.
You can access newGNi now via https://newgni.net
Yes, its already SSL secured:)
We all know that the HYIP arena is probably the most volatile industry in existence – since laws are virtually not existing or at least can’t be enforced. Low life’s and extortionist’s are of course aware of this fact, trying to take advantage of this situation.
Please rest assured that newGNi is prepared for ANY outside interference. We know the HYIP arena for a long time and thus all the tricks in the book – so rest assured there will be always a Plan B in place.
On the other side it’s like a big slap in the face for hard working people like Chris and me who are working at least 12 hours a day for our members, to read complaints on public forums, like we do not communicate with our members at all etc pp∑. Hey there, wake up! We don’t have business with public forums whatsoever and inform about whats going on with newGNi on our Facebook page, via Twitter and MNO only. How many times do I have to inform you to please check our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter, if there is a problem? Forums are yesterday’s news – today it’s all about Facebook and Twitter.
For all of you who couldn’t access our site earlier, to request your withdrawal before the end of the week, please note that we will process an additional batch of withdrawal requests tomorrow just after 12:00 GMT.
Before I leave, please allow me to express my sincere gratitude to all our members who contacted us during the week, giving us their best wishes and support. That really means something for us!
Secondly, our apologies for the inconvenience during the past days. Wry try our best to make it up for you in the weeks and months to come!
Until next time,
