New

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!

New
  • New .com and .org domains: We're the registrar now

    We've received ICANN accreditation and made all the necessary technical preparations. Now we can finally start operating as a registrar, rather than just a retailer, of .com and .org domains. This is a start which, for now, only applies to new registrations or transfers (not renewals) of those two TLDs. Where a reseller's name used to show as the registrar, you'll see our sister company's name, Webslice International, instead. As the blog explains, that's us: same team, same owners.

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.

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.

New
  • 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.

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.
