SSL certificate renewal system added to Control Panel

Takeshi EtoIf you purchased an SSL certificate through Everleap, now you can renew the certificate in Control Panel.

60 days prior to expiration a “renew” link will appear in the SSL certificate list in the Control Panel ‘Services | SSL Certificates’ section. You can run through the tool to renew your SSL certificates.

Yes, it’s already been a year for some Everleap SSL certificates! Time flies and we appreciate every one of you early adopters.



How to run ASP.NET 5 beta apps on Everleap

Frank CheungASP.NET 5 is the very latest yes, and it’s pretty cool. But it’s also a significant departure from previous .NET versions. This version introduces a more modular .NET that has been optimized to run in the cloud.

You can read a lot more about it on the various Microsoft sites out there, and it’s still in beta, so expect some things to change. But if you are the curious type and want to run an asp.net 5.0 beta application on Everleap right now, I’m going to show you exactly how to do it. You may be surprised at how easy it is.

Ready?
