Release Notes

14 November 2023

  • High Performance Virtual Server platform launched

    Our new High Performance Virtual Servers (HPVS) are around 5x faster than our regular Virtual Servers. This is thanks to entirely new hardware which includes AMD Ryzen 9 CPUs, NVMe storage, and a brand new virtualisation platform. From today you can choose plans from 1 to 30 cores and start spinning up your own HPVS via the Control Panel.

  • Improvements to viewing Volumes in the Control Panel

    When you click on Volumes in the Control Panel you'll see all Volumes across your servers, rather than just the Volumes on the first alphabetical server. Super useful!

    Conversely when viewing Volumes for a specific container, we default to only showing you Volumes that are attached to that container. Also super useful!

  • Better error handling for container cloning when no space is available

    If your attempt to Clone or Overwrite a container fails due to your server's storage being full, we'll now provide more useful error messages.

  • Better Cloud Container activity logs

    We've done a nip and tuck on a whole bunch of messages and logs for Cloud Containers, so when you're in the Control Panel and viewing your Account ยป Activity Logs, things should be much clearer and less noisy.

  • Respecting ownership on container clone

    In some cases we weren't respecting the ownership of files when cloning a container on the same server. This would result in the files being owned by root, which is bad. This has been fixed and files will correctly stay as www-data.

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2022 arrives on Cloud Containers

    For the first time on Cloud Containers we're officially supporting SQL Server, with our release of SQL Server 2022 as a Service Image. Pairing it up with our already supported .NET Core Web Image opens the doors to many projects across the .NET ecosystem. Read all about .NET Core and SQL Server in the Knowledge Base.

  • More Cloud Container job improvements

    We've tweaked a bunch of jobs across the Cloud Container platform, tidying up the order of operations and further improving performance. As a result, jobs like changing a container image will be a bit faster with less downtime.

  • Easy backup restores for Managed Cloud Containers

    Cloud Container backups just got even easier to restore for Managed servers. With the new "Backups" tab you can see all automated and manual backups from the past 14 days, and restore your choice with a simple button press.

    It's an easier, faster and safer way of restoring should something go wrong. It's also another reason to ensure your Cloud Container has Server Management. Read more in the Knowledge Base!

  • Updating redirects with uppercase characters

    Sometimes people put uppercase characters into URLs. Unusual? Perhaps, but we're sure there's a good reason. Which is why any Domain Redirects that you edit with uppercase characters will now update correctly.

15 September 2023

  • Account admins can now enforce 2FA

    The role of account Admin has only been around for a few days, and here's its first power boost. By enforcing 2FA (two-factor authentication) across the entire account, Admins give every current and new user 48 hours to set up an extra security check at login, or be locked out. See how to enforce 2FA in the Knowledge Base.

06 September 2023

  • Cloud Container Volumes

    Volumes are a new way to share files and assets between containers, and to limit SSH/sFTP access to specific directories. They're free for all Cloud Container customers from today. See the announcement on our blog for more.

  • New "Admin" privilege

    A new "Admin" privilege can be assigned to Contacts in your SiteHost account. Admins can customise Module access of other users, and can control some security settings - like upcoming changes to our 2FA feature...

15 August 2023

  • A smarter Add Container button

    While viewing a specific Cloud Container server, click "Add Container" and the form will automatically select the server that you're viewing, saving you a click and scroll. It's the small things.

  • Invoice pagination fix

    When viewing the Invoice listing screen the pagination will now work for those with many, many, invoices. To those impacted, thank you for the ongoing support!

14 August 2023

  • Control Panel logs show the user again

    When viewing logs in the Control Panel, such as account Activity Logs or History on a server, the user that initiated that action is now correctly displayed again.

09 August 2023

  • Debian Bookworm now available

    We've added Debian Bookworm as a distribution choice for our Linux VPS, Linux VDS and Dedicated Server plans so you can get the latest Debian LTS on offer. Find more details on the blog.
