New Feature: R1Soft Continuous Backups

January 30, 2015

Backing up customer data has always been a struggle. cPanel's backup system is too slow and demanding on system resources. Backing up large servers would often take several days rather than completing overnight. We've been waiting for a better solution and have finally found it.

After several months of testing we've now implemented R1Soft's continuous backup solution across all of our servers!

R1Soft syncs data at the block level and only archives changes made so backups are completed quickly with little demand on the server. Not only can you restore files and databases directly from your cPanel, R1Soft also offers multiple recovery points available for restoration.

We've configured R1Soft to provide 7 daily and 4 weekly recovery points to clients. The backup server is even stored in an entirely separate data center from our hosting servers adding an additional layer of security in the event of an emergency.

Should you ever need to restore a file you may now do so from the R1Soft Restore Backups icon in your cPanel!

Reminder: Native PHP to be Upgraded [Completed]

December 23, 2014

Our native installation of PHP is set to be upgraded from version 5.3 to 5.4 with staggered upgrades of our servers beginning January 3.

If you have an older application that is not compatible with PHP 5.4 we offer alternate versions of PHP from 5.2-5.6 that you can change to from your cPanel.

Please refer to our PHP upgrade announcement for more information.

UPDATE: Native PHP has now been upgraded to version 5.4 across all servers. If you encounter any issues please follow this guide to change your PHP version back to 5.3.
