It’s that time again! We post a State of Site5 update once a month to let our current and future customers hear about what we’re working on and give a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our company. Let’s get right to it!
- We have launched three new hosting locations! Sydney, Australia, New York City, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands are now available for shared, reseller, and VPS hosting.
- We released our long anticipated Reseller Cloud Hosting! We currently have one plan available, and it contains 50GB disk space and 500GB and bandwidth. Additional specifications and inclusions are available on the website.
- Our Shared Cloud Hosting plans had their disk space and bandwidth increased. The increase was for new orders and existing customers alike. Plans now range from 10GB of disk space and 100 GB of bandwidth up to 40GB of disk space and 500GB of bandwidth!
- The migration to our new cloud platform has been completed.
- We are deploying SiteAdmin 2.0 to applicable VPS and dedicated server clients. That will be completed middle of next week, and will only leave central mail based shared servers not yet on SA2. We are currently working on the process to move email back to the local servers, and once we have the process down and executed on central mail based servers, we will then at that point deploy SiteAdmin 2.0.
Each month, I’m answering one user-submitted question, and if that user is a customer, their account will be credited with $ 10 that can be used towards future invoices and/or purchases with us (ie, it’s not redeemable for cash). As for stipulations on the questions that can be asked.. anything goes! Keep in mind though that only the questions that are most appealing to the widest audience will be selected. They shouldn’t be only applicable to your own account! So, start sending in your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org being sure to include your account number or domain name with your email if you’re a customer!
This month’s question comes from Tony:
If customers on Shared Hosting aren’t allowed to resell their hosting, why does MultiAdmin give the option to suspend an individual website?
This is a great question! Before Ben and Joel bought Site5, reselling on shared hosting was not disallowed. After some discussions though, we felt it didn’t make sense to allow it for a few reasons.. among them being that none of the reseller tools were actually available. Later this year we will be revamping MultiAdmin completely, and this very function (the ability to suspend websites) will be one of many that we will be reviewing throughout that process.
Thanks for the question Tony! Your account has been credited $ 10. 🙂
As always, if you have any questions please post in the comments or on the official post in the forum. Thanks for your continued support!
