Faster Webmail

Webmail 4.1 will be released on October 1, 2008. The biggest benefit of this Webmail upgrade is a dramatic increase in speed and responsiveness. Your full Inbox will load in seconds, and individual messages will load faster similar to a desktop email program.

Numerous functional advancements will be made available with the introduction of Webmail 4.1:
  • Much, Much Faster: The Inbox loads 10 times faster than before. All Inbox functionality now works much faster.
  • Automatic Inbox updates: New messages will automatically be shown in the Inbox as they arrive. A sound will also play indicating the arrival of new mail.
  • New icon theme: New icons with a cleaner look-and-feel have been added.
  • Message flagging: You can now mark important messages in your Inbox with a star, just like in Outlook.
  • Unread messages: All personal folders now update to display the number of unread messages.

Improved SPAM Filters

New server-side SPAM filters were installed on the email servers. You should have noticed a large decrease in SPAM but there can also be false positives. If people sending you email are receiving a bounce-back email with the words "Connection Refused Due to Abuse" in it, please forward us this email so we can whitelist the sender's email server IP address.

Disk Space and Bandwidth Increases

We are increasing disk space and bandwidth for many plans for the third time in a little over a year.

On May 2, 2008, the following allocation increases will go into effect for Business Class, non-SOHO hosting accounts:

1) Website Storage - increases two times from current published storage

Email Storage Increase / Platform Upgrades

We will be making significant enhancements to our email offering over the coming months. As part of these enhancements, on September 3, 2007, we will automatically increase email box storage for all website hosting plans at no additional cost. Details are as follows:

Single Domain Name - Business-Class email (with or without web hosting)

  • PHP 5.2.3 Upgrade

    A maintenance window is scheduled for Saturday, July 21, 2007, from 12am-4am ET (9pm-1am PT, 4am-8am GMT).

    During this maintenance window, we will be upgrading to PHP 5.2.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and other functional improvements. More information on PHP 5.2.3 can be found at http://us.php.net/UPDATE_5_2.txt. Please note that PHP 4 customers will be unaffected by this update.

    No downtime is anticipated during this maintenance window.


    Disk Space and Bandwidth Increases / Maintenance Notice

    We have doubled disk space and bandwidth limits again and have added additional email boxes to most plans. Since our hosting is served by clusters and everything is redundant for enhanced reliability, it is more expensive to add disk space than other hosting providers.

    In 2007, you will see some significant enhancements to the email hosting platform. These changes will result in many exciting new services including the ability to offer higher storage capacity mailboxes and other high-demand, email-based services.

    As a part of this enhancement process, a series of maintenance windows have been scheduled every Saturday, starting April 14th, and ending Saturday, July 7th, inclusive. Each maintenance window will run from 12am-4am ET (9pm-1am PT, 4am-8am GMT).

    While no disruption in mail services are expected, any unanticipated interruption will be brief.

    PHP 5 Upgrade Complete
    The upgrade from PHP 4.4.1 to PHP 5 was completed Thursday, February 22, 2007.

    If you wish to continue using PHP 4.4.1, the PHP Manager application in the WebsiteOS allows you to specify which version of PHP you would like to use. There is no delay associated with changing PHP versions so you will be able to use the selected version immediately.

    More about PHP 5:
    PHP 5 offers many new features; it is designed to be as compatible with earlier versions of PHP as possible, with little functionality being broken in the process. PHP 5 and the integrated Zend Engine 2 have greatly improved PHP's performance and capabilities. Most existing PHP 4 code should be ready to run without changes, therefore migrating code to PHP 5 should be fairly simple.

    Please note there are some backwards-compatibility issues. Details of these changes for developers can be found here:
    http://php.net/manual/en/migration5.incompatible.php

    The main change which website developers and web programmers will encounter in PHP 5 is with the object-oriented programming (OOP) model, which now uses Zend Engine 2.0. Details can be found at:
    http://php.net/manual/en/language.oop5.php

    Disk Space and Bandwidth Doubled Again
    We have doubled disk space and bandwidth for most plans for the second time in 6 months.


    MySQL 5.0 Support
    On Thursday February 15th, 2007 we will be launching our latest version of the DB Manager. DB Manager Version 3.0 will allow the user to run MySQL 4.0 databases, as the current version does. The new database manager application will also feature support for MySQL 5.0 databases through the same interface.

    Along with this added support of the newest version of MySQL, we will be increasing the default number of databases allowed per domain from 2 to 3. Users will be able to have MySQL 4 and 5 databases simultaneously if desired, giving users more freedom in their database account management.

    This application upgrade will not affect any current databases that a user has created through the DB Manager. All existing MySQL 4.0 databases will function under the same username and passwords that the user has set. Access to creating MySQL 5.0 databases will be accessible for existing users as well.

    PHP 5.0 Upgrade
    As part of our ongoing effort to offer the latest services, on Thursday, February 22nd, 2007, we will be upgrading from PHP 4.4.1 to PHP 5; this will allow users to take advantage of the additional features and benefits available in PHP 5.

    In the coming weeks, we will provide a preview URL for user domains, allowing customers to view their current site as it will look under PHP 5. This will give developers time to make any necessary updates to their site's code in preparation for the upgrade to PHP 5.

    If a user wishes to continue using PHP 4.4.1, a PHP Manager application in the WebsiteOS will be provided, allowing customers to specify which version of PHP they would like to use. By default, the PHP Manager will assume PHP 5.

    The PHP Manager will be available on Monday, January 22nd, 2007. If a user elects to continue using PHP 4.4.1, then the user will not be upgraded to PHP 5.
