.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.

PHP 8 is now available
Posted by Paul Woodland on 04 February 2021 01:48 AM

PHP 8 is now available to use on all of our servers! As not all scripts will be compatible yet, we have not made it the default version (this is currently PHP 7.4), but you can choose to switch to it at any time by clicking on the "Website Settings" icon for the domain in our control panel, and choosing it from the PHP versions dropdown box.

If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Minor Changes to Policies due to Brexit
Posted by Paul Woodland on 31 December 2020 07:03 PM

As many customers will be aware, in 2016 the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Although this happened earlier in 2020, it is only now at the end of 2020 that the transition period is ending and so changes have been needed.

We have therefore had to make a few minor changes to our legal agreements to comply with the new laws. As the UK government only announced what rules would apply a few days before they would take effect, this could only be completed at the last minute.

The new updated agreements apply from the 1st January 2021 (tomorrow) and are available on our website:

https://www.liquidsix.com/legal

Only minor changes have been made, including changing references to GDPR to the equivalent new UK law and references to the UK being within the EEA needing changing. A few other minor changes have been made at the same time, including removing our old payment processor, WorldPay. No changes have been made to how we process your personal data.

For customers within the EU, there will be VAT changes required (including us being issued with a new VAT number for EU use - the current number will stay the same for UK use). Due to the law, these changes can not be made until after the 1st January, so you will see these changes take effect in the first half of January.

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

Regards,
The LiquidSix Team
