Our latest upgrade: ASP.NET 4.0 & SiteStudio

FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedInDiggEmail

Hello everyone!

We’ve received a lot of feedback from our customers regarding some of the aging features of our hosting plans, most commonly related to SiteStudio and ASP.NET. We’re excited to announce two server upgrades that will address much of this feedback, resulting in a better experience for everyone taking advantage of these features.

SiteStudio Patched

As several of you know, our website creator, SiteStudio, has looked a bit rusty lately, with known compatibility issues with newer versions of popular browsers. Recently, our IT team released a patch to update SiteStudio’s compatibility with the newest versions of common browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc). Before this patch, the ‘Rich Text Editor’ function didn’t work as you’d expect, and some users had trouble creating tables, even when other aspects of the Editor were working. With the new patch, these problems are now fixed, and the Editor should be completely usable again for all of our customers. Thank you to everyone for your patience while we worked to resolve this frustrating issue.

ASP.NET 4.0 for CP8 and CP10 Windows Customers

Customers using our CP8 and CP10 control panels can now take advantage of ASP.NET 4.0. This is an upgrade from the previous version of 3.5 and will provide an up-to-date work environment for customers using our Windows platforms. ASP.NET 4 provides customers with the ability to use parallel extensions, new Visual Basic and C# language features, and code contract support. More information about the new features in ASP.NET 4.0 can be found here:

To find out the Control Panel on which your account is located, simply log into your account, click on the “Manage” button next to your hosting plan, and look for “cp#” in the URL in the address bar; “#” will a number between 2 and 12 (if you don’t have a number, you’re on cp1). If you’re not on CP8 or CP10 and want to give ASP.NET 4.0 a try, contact our support team, and they’ll be happy to walk you through the process of migrating to a newer Control Panel.

We hope all of our Windows customers on CP8 and CP10 enjoy this new feature!

Have a great week everyone!

  1. Tcertain -

    All I can say is WOW!  I am a new customer and I was totally disappointed with my server.  It was so slow (when it even came up at all) that I was seriously looking at finding a new hosting company.  Got your notice that the server would be down at midnite to 4am.  At 6:30 I cranked up my site and it came up so fast it scared me!

    Whatever you did, I suggest you give your whole server line the same facelift you did this one, cause it is amazing.  Now as long as I don’t have any issues going forward, you have made me a loyal customer.  Thanks!

  2. This is best one article so far I have read online. I would like to appreciate you for making it very simple and easy.  I have found another nice post related to this post over the internet which also explained very well. For more details you may check this URL…..
