UPDATED: Server-Side SSL Changes
Posted by Tegan King on 28 June 2016 01:10 PM

Due to recent modifications to the Authorize.Net and PayPal security modification schedules it is no longer necessary to apply the previously announced SSL modifications at EPhost on June 30th.

SSL CHANGE UPDATE: All EPhost shared hosting and managed dedicated servers will have SSL 2.0 (server & client), SSL 3.0 (server only), RC4 Protocol, and Key Exchange Algorithm Diffie-Hellman disabled if they have not been already on July 10th during our regular monthly security updates.

UPDATE REGARDING AUTHORIZE.NET AKAMAI CHANGED: The June 30th migration to Akamai is now voluntary, but remains highly recommended. Authorize.Net will not automatically direct our existing URLs to Akamai as previously communicated.

AuthorizeNet still recommends updating your code to use the new Akamai SureRoute transaction URLs that are available:

https://api2.authorize.net/xml/v1/request.api
https://api2.authorize.net/soap/v1/Service.asmx
https://secure2.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll
