Re: Discussion of the new business products

I presume this is not yet live as I've just had a look and there are no upgrade options offered on my fceluk account.

Re: Discussion of the new business products

A number of the links are not working?

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Thanks Maurice.
We're aware of that and it's being worked on as we speak.

Couldn't you give us some sort of gentle warning before making announcements like this? I nearly had a heart attack!

Re: Discussion of the new business products

Is the webspace static pages only (i.e. no PHP or anything else that a modern is business is likely to need)?

Re: Discussion of the new business products

It's just standard webspace.
Any customers who are looking for advanced web hosting services are recommended to look at PAYH.

Re: Discussion of the new business products

Just a polite reminder that the account I am querying is the one associated with fcel not the one associated with strat.
Just as an aside. With regards to webspace, our website is in ASP and I would love to have it converted to PHP meaning it would be much more 'portable'....however Undecided

Re: Discussion of the new business products

So you are still taking customers onto the old webspace ?  Sad
that's a real shame i thought it would have been on PAYH

Re: Discussion of the new business products

I'm currently on PAYG as I think that Jelv is (from other topics).
The lack of PHP would kill it for me. Can existing customers still have their ccgi webspace? The PAYH trial showed how difficult the migration would be.
[Edit]I have read the relevant bits of the blog
which says;

25. Do accounts come with CCGI and MySQL?
No. Business Options 1, 2, 3 don't come with the following advanced hosting features as standard:
•CCGI
•MySQL
•NetAnnounce
•My Circular
•FrontPage
•Shell access
Existing customers already using one of the above services: If you want to switch to Business Options 1, 2 or 3 you can carry them over to your new account.

So, thankfully, we might be able to keep our existing CCGI based websites running... Am I reading this correctly?
If I go for any of these will be able to keep my www.username.f9.co.uk name the same?
Can I later go, for example, from option 1 to option 3 and keep the ccgi use?
What is the daily/monthly website traffic limit?

Re: Discussion of the new business products

Hi Tony,
It would be 250MB per day on Option 1.
You would also be able to keep all of your existing features, even if you subsequently moved again.

Re: Discussion of the new business products

Hi Jameseh,
Thanks for the information.
In the last 12 years, I have not exceeded the current 250MB per day limit, but came near it once when one visitor downloaded 148MB worth of my software - they were using a download manager with multiple connections and got lots of partial downloads.
For my peace of mind would the limit be any higher with option 2, or is there any mechanism for purchasing more?

Re: Discussion of the new business products

Sorry, my mistake - I misread something I had written down.
It's 100/100MB on Option 1, 250/250MB on Option 2, 500/500MB on Option 3.
