The software was developed by NZServers back in early part of 2000.
The software was never charged being a FREE module we used to develop websites.
If we update the current PHP version of 5.3 most Fastpage sites will cease to work.
At that point your Fastpage website will be down.
We ceased deployments on Fastpage CMS on the 1st December ... Read more

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 ... Read more
NZServers started in business as a web hosting provider.
Initially, most clients found a web developer.
As time went on web designers came and went leaving customers without a web developer.
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 ... Read more
Just like other times in life, sometimes you have to know when to call it a night and retire products gracefully. We’re busting out the hard hats and crowbars to say goodbye to our old friends, Fastpage, Oscommerce, PHP 5.3.
We have been holding on for far too long and while we don’t want to see any disruptions to any website ... Read more
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 ... Read more

As I type this post, I’m still in a queue waiting on a call centre to answer.
One site I gave up after one hour.

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 ... Read more
What defines any business is how they handle support issues
For myself I shop on line being in a rural area as it’s so much easier to shop this way, or so I thought.
Often I act on behalf of clients on support issues with other businesses.
I do this because I have the skills to speak the language and convey what the client ... Read more
