Python: Now Available on Shared Hosting!

Written by Craig
We're incredibly excited to announce that we have now added support for Python on our shared and reseller hosting platforms.

First released in 1991, Python is well established - but it's developer Guido van Rossum couldn't have imagined that it would go on to become the world's fastest growing programming language.

In recent years, the popularity of Python as a programming language has been surging - and if this trend continues, it may well be on track to become the world's most popular programming language.

GDPR: A Shared Responsibility for Data Security

Written by Craig
We recently posted about the upcoming GDPR, which becomes law on May 25th 2018. In that post we outlined more broadly what the GDPR is, and we touched on one of the concepts that this regulation brings in - the shared responsibility for data security. In this post, we will be expanding on this shared responsibility and, more specifically, outlining our responsibilities and measures in place to keep your data secure.

GDPR - Commitment Statement & General Overview

Written by Craig
The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is coming into effect on May 25th 2018.

We're getting an increasing number of queries regarding the GDPR, and we are seeing a number of misconceptions about what it is and what it means for website owners. The purpose of this post is to firstly outline explicitly that Kualo are committed to being fully GDPR compliant by 25th May 2018. Secondly, we aim to address a number of general points with regards to what the GDPR is, and what you need to do to ensure that you are also compliant.

In summary, if you collect any personal data for EU residents, or if you provide the means for others to collect this data, you must ensure you are GDPR compliant and we strongly recommend reading on.

In what follows we outline the basics of the GDPR.

It is, however, a complex area - we are writing this for informational purposes only. We recommend that you conduct your own research and/or seek professional assistance, our guidance alone should not be relied on for any reason.
