Control Panel layout changes

We interrupt this blog to bring you an announcement regarding a few layout changes in Control Panel.

1. The Account ID moved to the very uppermost navigation – next to Account & Billing:

2. The Related KB links on the right side column moved to the bottom – right above the footer:

3. For most of the control panel sections, we expanded the main section to span the entire control panel width.

That is all.

Please proceed to have a great weekend.

New top level domain extensions are available

announcementsToday we are introducing 5 new domain extensions into the mix: .cloud, .club, .pro, .store, and .xyz. You can check out our website for domain pricing, or go to Control Panel right now to order a new domain name.

We plan to introduce more domain extensions, so if you have any suggestions, please let us know.



ASP.NET Core 1.0 is available now

announcementsWe have updated our Windows 2012 servers to support ASP.NET Core 1.0. This is the latest rewrite of ASP.NET from Microsoft (which they had previously called .NET 5). Learn more about .NET Core here.

If you want to use .NET Core 1.0 but your site is not on a Windows 2012 server, we can migrate you to a newer server. Just log in to the support portal and open up a ticket. We’ll take it from there. You can see the web server your site is running on in the Site Info section of Control Panel, under “Web Server.”

Just wanted to announce the availability of ASP.NET 4.6 hosting – more precisely it’s ASP.NET 4.6.1. Many of you have been asking about it, and now it’s here at Winhost!

Note that we didn’t roll out ASP.NET 4.6 on all servers, so if you are interested in using ASP.NET 4.6 and your server doesn’t have it, then contact us and we’ll move your site to a server that supports ASP.NET 4.6.
