Release Notes

  • Cloud Container Metrics: Dozens of beautiful new graphs

    Closely monitor your Cloud Container servers and individual containers with a new, detailed Metrics dashboard. Graph out server load, CPU usage, RAM usage, database disk usage and more over periods from 5 minutes to a year (once that much data has been collected). Read the introductory blog article, get more detail from the Knowledge Base, or log into your SiteHost Control Panel and open any Cloud Container (or Cloud Container server) to find the new Metrics link.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Option to "Swap Registrar" when renewing domains

    Last month we started acting as the registrar, rather than just an onseller, when you register new .com or .org domains. Today we've added in renewals, but left you in control. If you want to cut out the reseller, you can swap your domain's registrar to us when you renewing your domain(s). Read three reasons why this is a good idea in the blog. This option will apply to a growing list of TLDs over time.

  • 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.

20 May 2024

  • Cloud Container backups tell you the image at the time

    When you view your list of Cloud Container backups, you'll now see what image the container was running at the time. If you want to restore a backup that was taken before the image was upgraded or changed, we recommend changing the image back before restoring. See how to restore a Cloud Container backup in the Knowledge Base.

13 May 2024

  • "Production mode" setting for managed Cloud Containers

    If we manage and monitor your Cloud Containers, there's a new "Production Mode" setting within their environment variables. If this setting is off, we'll know that the container isn't production-ready and we won't monitor the website. When it's on, so is our round-the-clock monitoring.

10 May 2024

  • 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.

06 May 2024

  • Registrar for new .io and .travel domains

    Continuing on from changes on May 1, we (under the name "Webslice International") are now the registrar when you register new .io and .travel domains.

01 May 2024

  • We're now the registrar for more new domains

    Building on a change noted (and blogged about) on March 12, we are now the registrar and not just the retailer when you register new .net, .cc, .tv, and .name domains. Existing domains are unaffected. The name we use as an international registrar is "Webslice International".
