Welcome to a new, secure version of the Mozambique Website. We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the downtime and the delay in getting the Mozambique Website back up.
Everyday websites across the internet face an increasing number of hacking attempts. The Mozambique website was no exception. Last year we detected several attempts to hack the website. Luckily none of the hacks were successful and the website, including databases remained secure. However, we were aware of areas where the website was vulnerable to attacks and we needed to take some time to patch up these vulnerabilities so that any hacking attempts in the future remain unsuccessful.
To increase security we have also installed SSL Certificates. You will notice that all pages on the website now have https:// security. This step ensures that any information you send or recieve from the website cannot be intercepted.
We also wanted to take some time to complete the pages that were not working yet and add some new features. We have re-designed some of the old pages. The new layouts are optimized to ensure that the website loads quickly and works well.
We have made it even easier to list Accommodation, Restaurants, Activity Centers, Travel Agents and other Businesses. We have also completed the Employment and Property sections and are working with various partners to add Job and Property Listings. Users can now fill out an online CV and apply for jobs directly on the website. Our Classifieds section has also been overhauled to make it easier to post new items and we've added a section where people can make requests for items they are looking for.
Besides this, we have also completed our newsletters section and will be sending out the first few newsletters shortly. Our newsletters will be packed with useful information, so be sure to subscribe to the ones that you are interested in.
There are a few final touches that we still need to add to the website, and most of our databases are still having information added to them. With the new layers of security, we are confident that our website will be able to block any future hacking attempts.
Remember that we are always on hand to help. If you find something that doesn't seem to be working the way you expect it to, let us know and we will be happy to assist. We thank you for your patience during this time and look forward to having you browse the new site.
The Mozambique Team
