Bugs fixed

  • When some pages load the title area is generated when not needed.

Updates and new stuff

  • When a container is scaled up the message has been updated to include more info. We have scaled up your container CakeSite to the 1500normal option as it was using more resources then the old 750normal plan allows. You can always scale back down in the future. The usage is 876 MB / 750 MB disk used, and 455 MB / 40000 MB bandwidth used.
  • You now get a email alert when any charge that is created drops your balance below $2 and also $1. When you run out of credit services are NOT suspended for 7 days, so even large users will get time to reload.
  • Added dropdown to top menu items with actions and links to useful resources like recent containers.

New API Functions

September 3, 2018

A large feature was requested on Twitter by Eric Anderson https://twitter.com/elanderson21/status/1036610327419531264. Only took 3 hours to build in the feature to clone Containers from one Node to another. Score 1-0 for the new panel.

Oh we also have DARK MODE!!!!

Bugs fixed

  • Many bugs with SOA records because of the new clone system.
  • Database user value can have special characters like $ when it should not.

Updates and new stuff

  • You can now clone Containers from one Node to another, but you will still need to edit the DNS and all that stuff after. The new Container will keep its same SFTP and DB info so things should move just fine if using localhost as a database source. SOA update on the domain happens after 20 minutes so until then the DNS may not work if we are your DNS server (not recommended, use Cloudflare people).
  • Stats now show under the info tab, also added quick links to the top 4 most used pages.
  • Dark mode is here, with a cool presentation mode that will highlight all links in a large red background on hover.

  • Sending credit between accounts if the account has added credit in the past.
