R1Soft snapshots are now working successfully on all nodes.
R1Soft has not been forthcoming with a fix for them not being compatible with a RedHat 8 style kernel, reverting to a CloudLinux 7 kernel. Outage 21:30 for less than 5 minutes.
We have refactored our StatusCake monitoring to remove a domain, when it's no longer hosted with us, and not to add a domain until it's resolving at our IP addresses. Downtime alerts go to the email address of the Reseller User (primary user account) Update: A further refactor now checks the ...
We've switched off TLS 1.1 TLS 1.0 has been switched off for a while, along with SSL v2 and SSL v3

We've switched to the evolution control panel throughout our servers and find it offers all of the features in a better layout than the Darwin or Cyberpanel theme did. We've now removed both Darwin and Cyberpanel from our options. Demo the evolution theme https://demo.unixguru.co.uk Username: ...
Please note we have changed our domain pricing. Somethings are more expensive and some things are significantly cheaper. Coming soon!! Our Domain reseller program will see super cheap domains available to pre-paid customers.
At last DirectAdmin has added the ability to connect to your MySQL databases using phpMyAdmin, without you having to provide login credentials when you access it from the control panel. This only works, if you envoke the phpMyAdmin from inside the "MySQL Management | View Database" ...

Customer servers have been rebooted quickly this afternoon, to install a new Hybrid kernel. This allows us to continue to run CloudLinux 7 binaries, whilst taking advantage of the new Kernel features available in v8.
Historically, when you tried to use the control panel using https://your-domain.com:2222 it would have redirected to http://our-server.whitelabeldomain.com:2222 Now it will only do the redirect if your domain does not have a LetsEncrypt SSL certificate, which is available for free!
Our DC has increased DDoS protection from 450Gbps to 10Tbps, which is great news. If a customers IP gets DDoS'd that IP will automatically go into mitigation and be defended.
We have increased the bandwidth per account to 2TB per CPU.
We are no longer using CloudLinux's Imunify360 or ImunifyAV products. We have switched to BitNinja.io to keep the servers safe. Our switch to OpenLiteSpeed created some incompatibility with Imunify360, which has meant we have been more vulnerable to attacks, and whilst we haven't been compromised, ...
