Is-a-furry.org started in 2011 as a plain email domain for private use.
Since many requests during the first year, is-a-furry.org became open to public use in August of 2012.
In January of 2013 the email Service closed down due many spam account registrations and switched to a "request policy" - email accounts are only getting created if the user requests them from the owner of is-a-furry.org to ensure the account owners are human.
Also in August 2013 the Jabber/XMPP Service started. Since the beginning, Messenger and email services are secured by SSL with 2048 later 4096bit certificates. The Messenger refuses to talk to unencrypted services, which prevents connections to unsecured servers like gtalk.com.
In September of 2014 is-a-furry.org started to offer a small webhosting service for furry-related stuff.
In December 2014 Is-a-furry.org moved to a new hoster located in Roubaix/France. The email hosting was moved back to an own server due security reasons and an easier-to-use web interface.
In April 2015 the main chat interface was changed. Instead of Jappix, IAF is using the webclient "candy". Reasons were the instability of jappix, some bugs and a problem in maintaining the webclient. Jappix is also available as "second opinion without priority". The registration is now seperated from the client and got secured by a captcha.
In September 2016 the VoIP Service was tested and introduced. is-a-furry.org now supports P2P and Groupcalls via Voice over IP. The Teamspeak³ Server got closed. the whole Service also moved to a new dedicated Server located in Falkenstein/Germany.
January 2017: New Server, upgrade of all services, changing the Imagehoster to a more professional solution. Rework of all TLS certificates. Changing the Password algorythms to a stronger and more secure one. Hardening the Chatserver against bots and spam. New configuration of email services.
Is-a-furry.org is a part of the JHML network. This means, chatserver, email management and hosting are done by JHML.DE. There are also some other domains/services by this network like the gaming community "Mad Kitty Gaming" which is in development at the moment, Radio-Dark-Dimensions, an online radio and IT-Native.de, an technic/IT blog.
Is-a-furry.org tries to provide a high security standard. The web- and chatserver are on a high rating on security by SSLlabs and xmpp security overview.
