[2008-04-09] Managed hosting: Business plan resources increased.

We are happy to announce that we increased the resources available to our Pro hosting plan. The new Pro accounts feature five times more resources: 10GB disk space and 200GB monthly traffic. The upgrade was possible due to the greatly improved server hardware and software that we integrated into our hosting infrastructure.

The increased resources will be available to our customers at no additional cost.

[2007-07-28] PHP4 End-Of-Life announced.

The development team of PHP announced the End-Of-Life of PHP 4. There will be no more releases of PHP 4.4 after Dec 31, 2007. Critical security fixes will still be released on a case-by-case basis until August 08, 2008.

Macroleve.com will continue supporting PHP 4 until possible, but we urge our customers to look for ways to make their PHP applications suitable to run on PHP 5. After the end of 2007, we may be forced to discontinue any support for PHP 4, in case of a discovered security vulnerability which may endanger the integrity of our hosting environment.

After Sep 10, 2007, we will start setting PHP5 as default PHP interpreter on our servers. This means that files ending with .php will be parsed by PHP5 by default. However, customers will still be able to set PHP4 as default interpreter, by using a directive in their .htaccess files.

The change will happen gradually on each of our servers and the exact date for each server will be announced later.

We advise our customers to take the necessary steps to make their PHP driven software completely suitable to run on PHP5. If the software is a third-party application, upgrading to the latest stable version should be enough, as developers of popular software (forums, blogs, CMSs) have already released versions, ready to run on PHP5.

[2006-09-28] MySQL 5 available and new DNS Manager utility.

After extensive compatibility testing, we have incorporated MySQL 5 into our services. Customers with our hosting packages can now create and use both MySQL 4 and MySQL 5 databases. As MySQL AB have announced that they will stop supporting the MySQL 4 version soon, we may be forced to discontinue its support at some point in the future. We will continue supporting MySQL 4 until it is possible, but we urge you to migrate to MySQL 5, using the automated tool we have provided in the Control Panel (MySQL section).

We have introduced a new DNS Manager utility in the Control Panel. DNS management allows you to manage the DNS records of your domain name(s), and is normally required in order to point subdomains or email to a different server.

Please keep in mind that the improper use of the DNS Manager utility may result in inaccessibility for your web site or email service. If you need any assistance with this, please do not hesitate to contact our hosting support team by opening a ticket at www.suresupport.com using your existing account login information.
