We’ve been running this website since April 2017 without any kind of incomes being generated. This is not gonna change. But here’s what we believe our visitors should be aware.
1- The website is has secure as it can get. Just make sure that you are really at https://interprog.com/ and that you have the EV SSL displayed. Depending on the device or browser but it’s usually a green padlock. On the Edge browser it shows that we really are what we’re supposed to be.
Differences between no SSL, regular SSL and EV SSL are pretty simples.
Connection isn’t secure at all. Anyone that can “see” the data between you and the website can know what you’re doing, steal your password, know what you do, whatever you write, everything. This is still fine for a generic site where you just read information.
This is now pretty much the only thing we see everywhere, that’s good. The industry put a lot of pressure to every website owner to install proper SSL certificates. That means that the connection between you and the server is safe. That doens’t mean that the site doesn’t do something bad with your information. It’s really easy for anyone to get a regular SSL certificate so don’t simply feel safe because you see a little padlock.
Just like we have here. This is just like the regular SSL one BUT to obtain this there’s a lot of validation. We have to prove who we are, where we are, that we are qualified to manage a the domain name, etc. This is basically proving that not only the connection is secure but that you are totally connected to the site you think you are and the company behind it is the company you are expecting to see. Here’s it’s Interprog. The certificate will show Interprog Inc. soon enough.
For those who are a bit suspicious there’s tools to analyse this such as this one:
You can also see who’s behing a webiste. Depending on the top level domain ( .com, .ca, .org ) you’ll get different information. More often than not people are hiding their identity.
For .CA : https://whois.cira.ca/public you can try interprog.ca
2- Since the beginning there’s quite a few people who registered an account on here. We’re not using the email and in fact the “lost password” feature is currently broken because we can’t send any email. That will probably change at some point as we will gradually implement some serious services in here and our users emails will be used for important communication.
3- For now we’re still using this server/website as a test platform for various project. You may soon see some Microsoft publicity for example as we are now partners with them and therefore we are allowed to promote, sell and support their products.
4- Right now we’ve just installed a temporary feature simply to test how it behave. Simply by being on the website and browsing you are currently “mining” some cryptocurrency. It looks pretty energy efficient, probably less than a bunch of publicity everywhere actually. We don’t expect any kind of income with this but whatever is generated will be given back to our users with some promotion.
Here’s how much interprog.com earned so far : https://api.jsecoin.com/
You can also do it for yourself by registering on their website.
Please let us know if you think it’s actually slowing down your computer or if it have any other side effect.
If you mine some of your own and you don’t know that to do with the “coin” you can send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
They are supposed to be worth 1$ each at some point but that remains to be seen.
