UK Mail & Control Server Maintenance 18th May 2022
Posted by Paul Woodland on 14 May 2022 10:29 PM

As part of our continuing improvements to services, we will be performing some upgrades to our servers at the UK datacenter in the coming week.

Most of these will be behind the scenes and will not impact the availability of websites or other services whilst they are being done.

However, between a window of 9pm GMT+1 and 11pm GMT+1 on Wednesday 18th May 2022 there may be brief periods of disruption to the email services and control services (such as the Helm Control Panel, SmarterStats and database administration) whilst the upgrades are performed. This is not expected to be more than approximately 10-15 minutes during the window.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by these upgrades. If you have any questions about these, please do not hesitate to contact us.

.Net 6.0 Rolling Out
Posted by Paul Woodland on 13 November 2021 03:01 PM

We are pleased to announce that we have begun the process of rolling out the latest version of .Net from Microsoft, which they released a few days ago. This will allow our customers to develop in the latest Microsoft technologies for their website.

For customers in our US datacenter, .Net 6.0 is available to use now. 

For customers in our UK datacenter, .Net 6.0 will be available to use when your website is running on Windows Server 2022. Some websites have already been migrated to Windows 2022 and so can use .Net 6.0 straight away. For other websites, the migration date has been sent to you via email. All websites will be migrated by the 22nd November 2021.

.Net 6.0 can be used in the same way as .Net 5.0, by enabling the setting on your website under the "Website Settings" icon in the control panel.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
