  • Unmetered Accounts

    Unmetered does not mean unlimited. While most people play fair, there a few people who abuse the amount of disk space used. IMAP stores emails on the server. There are some users where the total number of email accounts has exceeded 10GB of space. While this is not an issue, this does impact the server if the backups run after 7 am clashing with ...

A few businesses we hosted were sold leaving the new owners trying to track down the web developer. By default, we got into web design to help clients out. If you are in that ...

  • Server Up Time

      99% uptime means the server could be down for 8 hours per year. The reality is servers crash for many reasons and when this happens you will be without emails/website. Nobody can guarantee 100% up time. We have an alert notification if the server does go down, but this means totally down. Sometimes the server is technically alive although useless to anyone when the ...

  • Signed Certificate for Emails

    For a long time a self signed certificate was used for the secure ports for emails. If you were using GMAIL for retrieving your emails, Google changed their mind a few years ago and would not accept a self signed certificate, which posed a security risk using unsecure settings. We have changed all of that now and sent a email update to advise ...
