RSS Subscribe Wellington Earthquake on Friday - Lounge Network Announcement #EQNZ
Posted on 16/08/13 04:38PM

This is a network announcement regarding the large Earthquake that struck the Wellington region on Friday afternoon. This Earthquake and the following aftershocks have caused no problems for us. Although our head office is located in the Wellington region, and we certainly felt the earthquakes, it has caused no damage in our office or surrounding area.

The hosting infrastructure where most of our clients websites are hosted, is in professional datacentres in Auckland, well away from both Wellington and Christchurch. So clients can be assured that websites will not be affected by these earthquakes.

RSS Subscribe End of life for RV Sitebuilder on our CPanel servers
Posted on 15/08/13 12:42AM

We have decided to phase out RV Site builder on our servers, and we have ceased advertising it as a feature. RV Site builder is a third party sitebuilder on our CPanel web hosting plans. We are phasing it out for a number of reasons, but mainly because it hasn't been as reliable as it should be, and it has high support costs. It has also only had very limited uptake, so there are very few websites that use it. There are also now far better CMS options out there now, such as Concrete 5, CMS Made Simple and Wordpress, which are relatively easy to setup, and can have far more features. These weren’t available or as easy to use when we first introduced RV Sitebuilder.
