Windows Shared Hosting decommissioning

Starting from next week, the 21st of November 2022, we will be decommissioning any remaining Windows shared hosting plans on our systems.  The owners of any Windows plans have been previously contacted via email multiple times this year in relation to this process.

How will this affect me?

If you still have an active Windows Minimus, Medius, or Maximus plan then we will create a Linux plan of the same type, with the same expiration date, and switch DNS, database, and Email services over to it.  Website files and services will not be copied and any content will no longer be available.  Websites, as per previous emails, have been offline since August.

Services affected by this:

If you are using the OX webmail system ( The switching process will reset any custom configurations in the OX interface such as Contacts, Calendars and Signatures.

If you are paying for SpamExperts access it will not be copied and will be cancelled along with the Windows plan. Please let us know if you want to purchase it again on the new plan, though no settings can be copied.

There is no downtime to any DNS, databases, or email during the switch and you do not need to change any login details.

What do I need to do?

If you aren’t using your windows plan for any email, dns, or database services and wish to cancel it fully please let us know.  You can cancel the newly created linux plan either at any time.  Otherwise you don’t need to take any action.
