New modules: AbuseIP DB, Amazon Route53 and Stripe Source WeChat Pay.
With today’s release we’re launching three new HostBill integrations: AbuseIP DB fraud protection plugin, Amazon Route52 domain registrar and Stripe Source WeChat Pay gateway.
As in HostBill we’re dedicated to provide you with maximum security, we’re happy to introduce a new fraud protection plugin: AbuseIP DB, which is the fifth fraud protection module integrated with HostBill.
AbuseIPDB is a project dedicated to helping combat the spread of hackers, spammers, and abusive activity on the internet. AbuseIPDB provides a central blacklist to report and find IP addresses that have been associated with malicious activity online. With AbuseIPDB you can verify your orders against AbuseIP database to check if related IPs have been reported. With this plugin you can set the number of days to search AbuseIP DB for entries (default is 30) and the max number of entries reported by AbuseIPDB that will not cause marking order as fraud. Optionally you can choose to report IP on fraudulent order. When enabled, if a staff member marks order as Fraud, related IP address will be automatically reported to Abuse IP DB.
Amazon Route 53 is a scalable and highly available Domain Name System (DNS) and is part of Amazon.com’s cloud computing platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS). In addition to being able to route users to various AWS services, including EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers or Amazon S3 buckets, Route 53 also enables AWS customers to route users to non-AWS infrastructure. Through Route52 Amazon also offers domain registration services.
WeChat is a leading mobile app in China used for messaging between people, as well as connecting people, services and businesses in China and around the world through a number of e-commerce and social features inside the app. WeChat Pay is the payment wallet inside the WeChat app, with over 600 million users. You can accept WeChat Pay payments with Stripe Source – and that payment method is now supported by HostBill! It’s worth to know that WeChat Pay is a push-based, single-use and synchronous method of payment. This means that once your customer takes action to authorize the charge there is immediate confirmation about the success or failure of a payment.
