Important Notices

- Web Design Services Launched -

We recently launched a web site design division here at WestHost.
This new department provides both quick solutions for getting online
and maintaining a web site, as well as custom services for those
with very specific needs.

Our new Web Design Packages are template-based, can be designed in
as little as 2 weeks, include professional consultation, search
engine submission and application customization, and start at only
$24.95/mo. On the other hand, our Custom Design Services allow for
even more creativity, programming, and development, yet are still
affordable (from $49/hr).

1. We can now make changes and updates to your web site for you with
affordable maintenance plans.

2. We can now install and customize all of our e-commerce solutions
for you, to insure seamless integration with your current web site.

3. We can now add additional pages to your current site, or redesign
the entire web site from scratch.

4. We can handle custom design, development and programming needs.

- Reseller/Server Manager Upgrade -

This weekend, we will be making a major upgrade to our Reseller/Server
Manager interface. The upgrade brings with it increased functionality
and ease of use, in addition to some security and aesthetic upgrades.
We are also expecting speed increases for both Reseller/Server manager
and our Site Manager control panel.

What We Are Working On

- IMAP E-mail -

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a protocol for accessing
e-mail from your local server. It is also a protocol in which e-mail
is received and held for you on your Virtual Private Server. You (or
your e-mail client) can view just the heading and the sender of the
letter and then decide whether to download the mail. All your mail
stays on the server in multiple folders, some of which you have
created. This enables you to connect to your mail server from any
computer and see all your mail and mail folders. In general, IMAP is
great if you have a dedicated connection to the Internet or you like
to check your mail from various locations.

IMAP will be released in the coming weeks and will be in addition to
POP3 (Post Office Protocol) Mail, which is already supported at

- RoundCube Webmail -

RoundCube Webmail is a browser-based multilingual IMAP e-mail client
with a fast and intuitive application-like user interface. It
provides all the functionality you would expect from an e-mail
client, including MIME support, address book, folder manipulation,
message searching and spell checking.

We are working to release RoundCube with or shortly after the release
of IMAP.

- phpBB Version 2.0.21 -

phpBB version 2.0.21 will soon be released. phpBB is the world's
leading Open Source flat style discussion forum (message board)
software. It is high-powered, fully scalable, and highly
customizable. It allows your site visitors to communicate openly by
posting new topics, replying to existing ones and more. phpBB hosting
is that much easier at WestHost with auto-installation and version
updates. It requires the installation of MySQL and Mod_Php, and can
be installed from within the Site Applications section of your
control panel (Site Manager).

- Uebimiau Version 2.7.10 -

Uebimiau version 2.7.10 is coming soon. Uebimiau is a great web mail
application. With it you can view your mail directly on your mail
server from any computer with Internet access. Uebimiau is a simple,
yet efficient cross-platform mail reader.
