PHP 5.3 on all servers

For the last several months, we were conducting a campaign to switch the default PHP interpreter on our servers to PHP 5.3. This has been quite a challenging task, given the incompatibilities between PHP 5.2 and 5.3, and our goal to perform such updates without affecting customer sites. The campaign is complete, and now all our servers run PHP 5.3 as default PHP interpreter, while PHP 5.2 is still available.

We will continue our efforts to provide to our customers the most recent technologies available, without compromising the stability and security of our service. Also, we will continue to enforce a policy that any such upgrades should have minimal impact on customer services.


Improved disk systems on all servers

For the past months, our engineers were working on a substantial upgrade of the disk systems on our servers. As of today, besides the RAID6 disk array, all our servers have solid state disks (SSD) as well. The I/O operations are balanced between the SSD and the RAID array, and most intensive operations run on the SSD. This significantly improves the overall system performance, and we believe that this brings the level of our hosting services even higher.


New Control Panel officially released

Today our new hosting Control Panel (v.2) has been officially released. It was in "beta" status for the past three months, allowing customers willing to act as beta-testers to get to know it, test it extensively, and supply feedback. The v.2 version of our hosting Control Panel comes with new design, better usability options, as well as new features. Our Software team will continue working on its improvement.


MySQL 5.1 on all our servers

In the last several weeks, we were performing an upgrade of the MySQL5 server to version 5.1. The servers were upgraded in batches to avoid any possible problems and to be able to provide extensive support to customers with possible incompatibility issues. Now all our servers run MySQL 5.1, which is the latest stable MySQL version, and its availability goes the furthest into the future according to the MySQL lifecycle calendar.


100,000 domains hosted on our servers

Being too busy in our work, we did not notice that back on May 15th, the domains hosted on our servers reached 100,000. We are proud to announce this now, as such a number of hosted domains is a milestone in the history of every hosting company.

We thank to all our customers and resellers who trusted their sites and businesses to us.

We do not have a sales department, and we never needed one, as this job has always been executed excellently by our existing customers. All customers, who continue to spread the word about us, are actually our Sales Officers. We know that we have the biggest and the most wonderful Sales Department a company can dream of. Back in year 2000 we had 300 customers; now, ten years later we have 100,000. This is not just our success - it is also a success of all our loyal customers and resellers. We thank you all, and we will keep up our work on offering the best hosting service.
