Upgrade to a new hardware platform in the EU data center

We are in the process of migrating all servers in our EU data center to a new hardware platform. It features the latest generation Intel Xeon processors, enterprise-grade RAID SSD storage arrays, and optimized internal network connections.

The upgrade to the new hardware platform will provide further improvement on the stability and performance of our hosting infrastructure. Our clients will also benefit from even faster and more robust hosting environment for their websites and email.

Free hosting for educational institutions

Education is among the top priorities of modern mankind. Understanding the need everyone contribute to this objective in any possible way, we have decided that educational institutions will no longer pay for hosting services on our servers. Instead, they can simply use our Hosting Plan for Educational Institutions.

Starting today, any school, college, or university that provides formal education, no matter in which part of the world, can host their official website or a site supporting their activities at no cost on our servers.

Full information about our educational hosting can be found on this page:

HTTP/2 available on all servers

HTTP/2 is a major revision of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol. It provides improved network communication and decreased latency, which makes it much faster than HTTP/1.1. HTTP/2 is supported by all modern browsers.

As of today, HTTP/2 is available on all our servers and hosting plans, including shared servers. It is available only through SSL/HTTPS, as the browsers supporting HTTP/2 do not allow non-encrypted communication over HTTP/2. Therefore, it is advisable all customer sites to have SSL certificates enabled, so that visitors can access them over HTTP/2. All security certificates, including the free Let's Encrypt certificates available in the Control Panel, fully support HTTP/2.

Privacy policy and GDPR

In the whole history of ICDSoft, we have always considered that treating customers with respect is something very important. This includes keeping the privacy of our customers at a highest level, and not using their personal data for anything else than for the provision of the services they pay for.

As of today, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union comes into effect. This regulation aims at protecting the privacy of EU citizens, but it also has a serious effect on how companies around the world would collect and manage personal data.

Revising the GDPR and the actions we needed to take to comply with it, we found out that the adjustments we had to make to the way we manage user data were close to none. We have never disclosed the personal data of our hosting customers to any third parties - the only exceptions are when this data should be used for domain registrations and SSL certificates. We have never made profiles of our customers, so that we target them with specific offers. We have never made marketing campaigns, filling our customers' emails with bulk offers. Thus, it turned out that we were following the basic principles of GDPR long before the GDPR existed.

Still, to confirm the way we collect and manage personal data, we have updated our Privacy policy, and you can check it here:

More RAM for First Class and Ultimate managed-VPS plans

We are well aware that with time, web sites grow popular and web software becomes more sophisticated. This requires regular updates of the hosting platform, and more hardware resources for the hosting service. Keeping pace in this competition is an important task for us.

During the past weekend, our system administrators completed hardware upgrades on all our VPS nodes. These upgrades made it possible to add more RAM to each of our First Class and Ultimate servers, at no additional cost for our customers. Now the First Class plan features 8 GB RAM (previously 6), and the Ultimate plan comes with 32 GB RAM (previously 24).

First Class and Ultimate plans are meant to host resource-demanding sites and software. With the SSD storage, 15-day daily backup, and the dedication of our team, these plans are the proper solution for customers that require utmost uptime and stability.
