Posted by ismywebsite in general.

So, it turns out that there are at least a few people who simply will not let this service die. I’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the offers. I want to stress it is a huge responsibility and challenge. Things are looking promising at the moment.

To get us started, I’ve planned a meeting via Skype. I’m opening it to anyone interested in helping out or contributing ideas. The chosen date and time is Saturday, November 10th, at 9:15 AM MST.
Full details here.

I’ve confirmed with a couple people already and I hope we have a reasonable turnout.

New Packages June 13, 2012

The basic idea is that when you order hosting under the new system, you actually order for multiple websites. You could host more than one website yourself, or you could give them away. You have complete freedom to choose what projects you want to host under your account.

For example, if you order Advanced Hosting, you could host two projects of your own and accept 5 projects from other people. In order to reach equilibrium, the system needs to sell 220 basic packages or 121 advanced packages. There is also the option to sponsor, and support even more sites.

Ordering does not actually work yet. This is just a request for feedback at the moment.

In the past, an overly colourful but functionally unfinished form would display. As of yesterday, you can use the feature to find your account by username or email, and reset your password if necessary.

If The Site Doesn’t Load December 14, 2011

Right now, I’m receiving reports that some of you find the site to be offline. I have confirmed there are in fact some DNS issues. These are not universal, but only affecting some people. While I work to fix these, there is a workaround if you’re using Windows and are the administrator on your computer:

1) Start > Programs > Accessories, Right Click Notepad, then click ‘Run As Administrator’.

2) Open the file ‘C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc/hosts’. You can use Ctrl + Alt + S to save a backup of this file in case you do something wrong.

3) Add the following 4 lines to the bottom of the file and save it:

174.121.11.252    ismywebsite.com
174.121.11.252    www.ismywebsite.com
174.121.11.252    ismywebsite.net
174.121.11.252    www.ismywebsite.net

This will cause your computer to skip the DNS lookup and directly attempt to access our site at the correct IP. If you are unable to do the above, then thanks for your patience as I work to fix this.

1And1 Domains Locked December 5, 2011

Due to a lockdown on our 1and1 account, changes to client domains registered via 1and1 are not possible. This includes WHOIS changes, nameserver changes, domain transfers, and domain renewals.

Based on current communications, it appears that the unlock procedure is to accept being billed a currently unknown amount for undesired renewal of domains no longer in use.Communication continues to be underway.

Three Free Invites November 30, 2011

Due to the incomplete credit system, and that I appreciate everyone’s feedback and hope having a few more users will give some more feedback, I’ve decided to give everyone three free invites. I may give out more in the future, but I’m not sure yet. Extra invites can still be purchased at the regular price of 10 credits, if you have more than 3 friends who you want to invite.

Here’s how to activate your free invite codes:

1) First, go to ‘Overview’ in your account.
Step 1

2) Then, scroll down to the bottom and click ‘Invite Center’.
Step 2

3) Next, click the button ‘Activate Free Invite > >’
Step 3

4) Your invite will be generated. Copy the code to your friend who you want to invite.
Step 4

5) Your friend enters the invite on the homepage to start the registration process.
Step 5

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone. Please keep it coming.

If anything doesn’t work, please report it. Thanks.

Update To Hosting Control Panel November 25, 2011

Posted by ismywebsite in general.
add a comment

This is a relatively simple update. I have removed the troubleshooter that never got finished, and only caused confusion. Instead, I’ve added a new tool, which will attempt to recreate the cPanel. It also fixes incorrect passwords if your cPanel ends up with the wrong password somehow. So basically, if your cPanel isn’t working, it fixes the most common errors. You can find this new tool under the ‘Reset’ tab. As usual, I hope you’ll help test this new feature and report any problems.

Note For Clients Of Node 4 November 21, 2011

We have received a few notifications that some of our clients are not able to connect to their website. If you are experiencing issues with your website to where you cannot connect to it and/or our website (weblyte.com) please reply to this e-mail so that we may inspect your website and make sure that your IP address is not blocked.

As you may know we are a very proactive company that would rather work on an issue before it actually becomes a problem for you, but sometimes this is not always possible as we cannot foresee everything. However, we do make every attempt possible to make sure your hosting is stable.

Node 1 Quota Reset November 15, 2011

Posted by ismywebsite in general.
add a comment

Due to a client taking up 16Gb with backup files, new accounts accepted on Node 1 could not be properly configured with the correct package. This was causing mixed results. In order to fix this, we had to reset the package settings for all accounts on the Planning stage. If you had requested extra storage (not part of your package), you’ll need to request that again.

Brief Node 4 Downtime October 19, 2011

Posted by ismywebsite in general.

The following alert was received from WebLyte regarding Node 4.

As you may know, we do our best to keep clients informed of whenever something happens that may affect their service. Today we experienced about 8 min. of downtime which was a result of data center maintenance performed by third party vendors. We have been reassured that this will not occur again as we were promptly contacted by our data center after this occurred.
