Introducing EmailBackup – Your ultimate Email backup solution

Announcement
Email Backup Solution

Email is a vital form of communication and many customers have asked us about Email backups. So we are happy to introduce a new service, EmailBackup!

You Can Automatically Backup Any Email Box
You can easily set up automated backups for your email and attachments. You can backup your email from Winhost email servers or virtually any other email boxes you have elsewhere.

It’s Secure
The email backup storage is secure and encrypted and is also secure during transit.

You Can Easily Search and Restore
Tools are available to search your email archive and you can restore any email messages from your backup.

Manage Your Backups In a Separate Control Panel
The EmailBackup portal is a separate control panel from the Winhost Control Panel and lives outside of Winhost infrastructure. So in the event your Winhost Control Panel is down for any reason, you still have access to your Email backup storage.

A Very Cost-Effective Solution
EmailBackup starts at $1 per month. Peace of mind for less than a cup of coffee! And to sweeten the deal even more, we are offering EmailBackup for 30 days FREE so you can test it out without any risk.

Some new features include general performance improvements, support for C# 8, support for .NET Standard 2.1, improvements for .NET Core Version APIs, tiered compilation, and ReadyToRun images.

We do maintain a list of the .NET Core versions that are supported on our ASP.NET hosting platform in our knowledge base. But remember, if you do not see the .NET Core version that you want to use on the list, you can always upload your application using a self-contained deployment. If you have any questions about deployment, please contact our Technical Support team.

New Power Plan is Here!

Today we launch a new fourth plan which we are calling the Power Plan. The new plan includes more resources than our Ultimate Plan.

The Power Plan is designed for extremely active sites, resource intensive applications and customers that need more database storage – basically, for the power users.

The Power Plan hosting platform is on a separate shared hosting environment solely dedicated for Power Plan sites. To optimize performance, we use high performance hardware and the servers have less site density. This also means that existing Winhost sites moving to the Power Plan will require a migration. Of course, if any existing customers upgrade to the Power Plan, we’ll take care of migrating your site.

For more information on the new Power Plan, check out our website: https://www.winhost.com/hosting-plans/power.aspx

We’ll be following up with another post to look at the Power Plan with more detail shortly.

Chrome Browser v68 – Will your site be “Not Secure”?

Earlier this year, Google announced that their Chrome browser v68 update will warn users that any non-HTTPS site is “Not Secure”.  The release date for this update is slated for July 2018 – this month!

Check out what the Chrome browser will display (from the Chromium Blog):

 

non-HTTPS site warning

 

Over the past years, Google has been slowly pushing all sites to be under SSL. Their efforts thus far shows that over 60% of Chrome traffic is now protected. Now that a majority of sites are protected, Google is moving to their next phase, which is to use their large install base of the Chrome browser to push even further.  From our research, the update hasn’t made it out yet but it is slated for this month.

 

RapidSSL Flash Sale
So it is time to consider securing your site. And to help you out we are having a Flash Sale on RapidSSL SSL certificates.

For the rest of July we are reducing the RapidSSL pricing to:
1 Year: $29
2 Years: $50

Customers can order RapidSSL through their Control Panel and they can get this special pricing during this time period.

 

Other SSL Options
Please also note that you can use an SSL certificate that was purchased/obtained elsewhere with your Max and Ultimate hosting plan.

 

If you have any questions, please contact our technical support team.
