We always try to keep our customers happy and make sure they do not encounter any issues while using our services. Unfortunately with the latest release of Joomla the database disk space usage was significantly increased, which rendered the Free hosting plan completely unusable, because a basic Joomla installation consumes 9.98MB of MySQL space, while the free hosting plan has a limit of 10MB. Of course, we cannot disappoint our resellers and their clients, so we have increased the MySQL space for the Free hosting plan from 10MB to 30MB and for the Personal hosting plan from 50MB to 100MB.
With this upgrade, the Free and Personal hosting plans are again competitive and Joomla-friendly.
On November 11th, 2016 at 15:00 GMT/UTC we will begin a major upgrade on some of the free servers.
The upgrade will require a full graceful restart of all services. The process will take approximately 48-72 hours, during that time there will be intermittent service interruptions.
We anticipate that if problems occur during the upgrade process this may cause additional downtime as the upgrade process will have to be restarted.
This upgrade is extremely urgent and unfortunately cannot be avoided.
During the upgrade process access to websites and control panel on the free hosting servers will be unavailable.
We apologize for the inconvenience this downtime may cause you and your customers. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding.
