21 June 2024

Improved
  • Updated colour scheme improves Control Panel accessibility

    A boost to the Control Panel's accessibility and usability, thanks to improved colour contrast in elements like the navigation, buttons, and tiles.

Improved
  • More details in lists of SSH users

    Take a look at your list of Cloud Container SSH users and you'll notice that it's had a bit of a tidy-up. As well as visual changes, like switching the 'User Type' to an icon, we've added more details. Now you can see the keys that each user has, without having to click into each one. We've had a lot of requests for this update so we're stoked to deliver it.

29 May 2024

Improved
  • DNS changes in Activity Logs

    If you manage DNS Zones via the SiteHost Control Panel, DNS changes will now show under Account > Activity Logs. There's a full run-down of DNS management in the Knowledge Base.

27 May 2024

New
  • Bulk transfer NZ domains

    Got a lot of NZ domains with another registrar? You can now transfer them all to us in one fell swoop. If convenience has been putting off your switch, now is a good time! The Knowledge Base explains how it works.

10 May 2024

New
  • Ubuntu 24.04 LTS (Noble Numbat) now available on High Performance Virtual Servers

    After thorough testing, we have added Ubuntu's latest long-term support release, Noble Numbat, to the HPVS platform. There's more about this distro in the blog.

28 March 2024

Improved
  • Faster Control Panel updates for Cloud Containers

    A little known fact is the Control Panel is eventually consistent for Cloud Containers. That means if a change is made directly on your server (like a container shuts down) or a job takes longer than we expect, that change will appear in the Control Panel soon(ish). We've now made this process much faster (push vs pull) – so the rare scenario where information might not have been quite up-to-date is now even rarer!

11 January 2024

New
  • Bulk domain renewal

    Managing a lot of domains? Now you can select as many of them as you like, and then renew them all at once. This time-saver has been requested a lot, and we're looking forward to seeing it get plenty of use.

05 December 2023

Improved
  • API tweaks to container end points and docs

    A few updates for users of the SiteHost API, mostly concerning dates on container end points. First, you can now see the created and date_updated information for container servers via the cloud/server/list_all endpoint. Secondly, the cloud/server/list_all, cloud/stack/list_all and cloud/stack/image/list_all endpoints now let you pass an updated_since parameter to only return items that have been modified on or after the specified date. All these changes are noted in our API documentation which has also had a once-over to fix some mistakes and clarify example code.

14 November 2023

New
  • 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.

31 October 2023

Improved
  • 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!
