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!

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.

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.

06 July 2023

Fixed
  • Mail Server SSL is now friendlier

    In some cases older email clients were getting tripped up by our mail servers SSL handshakes requirements. We've made some changes to make it handle things a bit more gracefully and hopefully prevent any issues.

13 June 2023

Fixed
  • Private Cloud Disk Upgrades

    We've fixed an issue that was preventing Private Cloud customers upgrading disk space on their Virtual Servers and Cloud Containers running on private hardware nodes via the Control Panel or API.
