RSS Subscribe Increase in Spam from Telecom / Xtra / Yahoo email accounts
Posted on 09/02/13 10:06PM

There has been a noticeable increase in spam being received from Telecom NZ email addresses. These include email accounts ending in @xtra.co.nz , yahoo.co.nz etc, and usually includes a link to malware. We suggest deleting these emails immediately, and do not click on any links in the email. Should you click on the email, make sure you do a full malware scan on your PC, as it could potentially cause a compromise on your hosting and email accounts.

This is not something that is affecting our services, but a general problem that is currently occurring on the Internet at the moment. Apparently Telecom are currently investigating the problem.

Therefore if you are receiving a lot of spam from email addresses ending in @xtra.co.nz, or @yahoo.co.nz, this will be the reason, and please delete them. Please contact Telecom for more information by googling 'telecom nz'.

RSS Subscribe Seasons Greetings for 2012/2013
Posted on 20/12/12 06:50PM

As 2012 draws to a close we would like to thank all of our clients for hosting their websites with us.

We've made some big changes in 2012, mainly to the backend systems. This includes updating most of our web hosting plans to give more value to clients. We have also updated most hosting control panels, and there have also been significant server and network upgrades, leading to hosting reliability that is even better than ever. We are proud to now have one of the most reliable hosting platforms operating in NZ.

2012 also saw us enter our 12th year in business, now making us one of NZ's longest established 100% NZ owned hosting providers. We would like to thank clients for continuing to support a 100% NZ owned company. Supporting a 100% NZ company means that all the profits we make, remain in NZ, and as a result, we pay our fair share of tax to support the NZ economy.

Our main office will be closed between the 22nd December until the 7th January. We will be offering limited support during this period. If you however need emergency support, please use the emergency support form (charges apply)

We would like to wish all our clients a safe and enjoyable holiday over the Christmas and New Year break.

Merry Christmas

Kind Regards

The Team @ Lounge Network.

RSS Subscribe Reminder of New CPanel and Webmail Login URLs
Posted on 29/11/12 02:49PM

This is just a repeat announcement to one we posted back on the 15/12/2011, regarding the new URLs for accessing Webmail & Cpanel. Most of our servers now have these new logins as mandatory, so if you are having trouble logging in or getting security error messages, please make sure you are using the new logins below.

This announcement ONLY applies to clients on our Premium Grade CPanel branded web hosting plans.

Due to security and server upgrades mentioned in a previous announcement, clients on our CPanel plans will soon only be able to login to CPanel & Webmail through a secure login page. Therefore the old login URL you used to use will be phased out in the coming weeks.

The new logins will depend on which server your website is installed on. Please check your Account information email that we initially sent you when the account was first setup, which should display the server you are on. If you don't have access to this, you can also try logging into to each server using trial and error, which will tell then you the server you are on.

The login links to both CPanel and Webmail can now be found on our updated login pages. The links to these pages can be found below.
