2003 Company News
- UK ShoutCast Data Centre Move Complete
We finally completed the move to the new
data centre in the early hours of this morning
and have emailed every customer with their new
details. The new servers are expected to have an
uptime of around 99.9%. This is due to our old
fleet of US servers having only around 98%.
02.11.03 - New Server Contract With HE.net
We can confirm we will shortly be moving our
service to servers located at one of HE.net's
data centres. This will improve reliability and
quality of the services we offer. It will not
have any effect on the price. Wenhave taken this
step due to a few problems and a decrease in
reliability with our current providers, FDC
Servers. The new servers will come online in a
few weeks time.
23.09.03 - SHOUTcast Customers
Any clients found over-streaming (streaming
at higher bit rates then you have paid for) will
now have a temporary ban on their account. The
length of the bans is never more then 2 hours.
This is to prevent excessive bandwidth usage. We
have found many clients to be doing this and it
is going to end up causing server problems. If
you require a higher bit rate please pay for it
like everyone else. Thankyou...
18.09.03 - UK Reseller Now Accepting Orders
Our new company, UK Reseller, is now
accepting orders for reseller accounts. However
since the new company does not officially launch
until 1st October, you may find the setup to be
slow until then. ;-)
18.09.03 - Payment Options Review
We are currently reviewing the payment
options available to our customers. To be honest
most of our payments are via PayPal and Nochex
(around 85%) and therefore we may remove some of
the other means of payment. FastPay looks almost
certain to go because of the trouble we have had
with NatWest being pretty much useless support
wise plus we have very few customers using it.
Western Union is also likely to go as we have
had very very few customers using this option.
We will certainly be keeping the mail payment
options, however due to the recent changes in
the way accounts are now setup, it may pose a
problem for new customers as it could take up to
10 days for a cheque to arrive, be cashed and
cleared. We recommend new customers head over to
paypal.com and sign up for a FREE account as
this is one of the most secure ways of online
15.09.03 - PayPal Customers
All PayPal customers will now be moved onto
a PayPal subscription on the next payment date.
This is to crack down on late payers etc...
After many months of toleration, we have now
taken the decision to become more strict on
payments. From now on NO accounts will be setup
without prior payment and any account which is
overdue payment for longer then 5 days will now
be suspended. We feel this is fair. If you ever
have any problems making payment on time, please
contact us and we can help you. Thanks...
