Heartbleed bug

You have probably heard of the Heartbleed bug (http://heartbleed.com/) that can be used to steal supposedly secured information through exploiting a vulnerability of OpenSSL certificates. It is important to note that this security hole was available only on websites that used our shared SSL certificates. The websites using RapidSSL or SSL certificates from GeoTrust were not affected. On few of our servers we were using the exploitable version of OpenSSL and as soon as a security patch was released by OpenSSL, we have installed it and re-issued all existing certificates. What this means is that all your websites and the details you submit over the shared SSL certificates are once again secure. We want to thank you for choosing our sevices!

New feature in the FTP Manager section

A new feature of the new Hosting Control Panel has been launched. In the FTP Manager section our dedicated in-house developers have released configuration files for easier FTP connection without having to struggle which are the correct FTP details to establish a FTP connection.

Hosting services managed by a new version of the Control Panel

We are proud to announce the launch of a new version of our Control Panel. With our new version we aim to simplify the user interface, functionality and a better client experience. All new clients starting August 31st, 2012 are directly introduced to the new version of the Control Panel, while the already existing ones are having the option to login in the new or the standard old panel.

New Semi Dedicated Hosting Plans Launched

So far we only offered shared hosting and VPS. While the first was suitable for sites with low to middle volumes of traffic and modest overall load, VPS (despite being flexible) are quite sophisticated for a lot of users. So there was a missing link between the two types of hosting.

New Signup Functionality

We are proud to announce improved signup functionality for our clients. Till this moment when you signed for one of our hosting plans the system would generate a random password and send it to your e-mail address. Users tend to dislike random passwords since they are very often hard to remember. No longer will you have such problems as you will be able to sign up with your own password now. We have added the option for you to use your e-mail address as well as your Client ID in order to login to the system.

Servers - VPS Hosting now available!

Virtual Private Servers also called VPS Hosting is now available on our hosting. VPS is partitioning a physical server into multiple Virtual Servers having the appearance and capacity of a dedicated server. Each Virtual Server runs independent from the others on the physical machine. Also VPS has its own OS, and each server can be independently rebooted.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

February 27 - 28 we are performing system update and new functionalities launch. Therefor part of the hosting accounts access as well as the signup process might be not functional. More news on this coming soon...
