The sixth version of the ISPmanager control panel has been released already. From May 31, we stop selling ISPmanager 5.
We notice the frequent cases of the Chia Coin cryptocurrency of mining on virtual and dedicated servers. In this regard, ISPserver reminds you that it is forbidden to use our resources for mining.
Any mining processes load the server resources significantly. Mining Chia Coin loads hard drives and SSDs. It leads to much faster degradation and failure of the equipment.
It has long been known that the number of IPv4 addresses is coming to an end. According to experts, they were supposed to end by 2020. Although these forecasts did not come true, the number of available IPv4 decreased significantly while their value increased dramatically.
We are changing the price of Microsoft software from 31 December. The price of licences will increase by 20% (except for RDP licences which will increase by another 10%). The price increase is forced and due to changes in Russian tax legislation and changes in the cost of RDP-licences for Microsoft distributors.
Great news from ISPserver! We have launched a new high-speed tariff - High CPU especially for resource-demanding processor-intensive projects.
High CPU tariff is powered by the next-generation Intel Core i9-10900K water-cooled processors, accelerating to a record rate of 5.3 GHz on one core and up to 4.9 GHz on all others at the same time. The High CPU servers use fast NVMe drives, which are 2-3 times faster than their predecessors - SSD.
Starting from September 1, 2020, certification centers will limit the validity of SSL certificates to one year, or to 398 days to be more explicit. This decision was made by CA/Browser Forum members in order to improve the security of websites and their users. It is assumed that this measure will reduce the number of certificates that were issued, but abandoned by the owners for various reasons. Such certificates are potentially dangerous because they can be hacked and used by attackers for phishing or other manipulation of users’ data.

Both the sales and financial departments will only be available part-time. Up until January 9th you should expect delays in responses to your questions of up to 24 hours.
Technical support's schedule is unchanged, we will keep solving technical issues around the clock. As always you can reach us by making a ticket in the client area or calling +7 (495) 668-09-95.
We've increased the maximum disk space limit available to custom VPS to 1 Tb for HDD+SSD and 500 Gb for SSD.
If you already have an active VPS, you can also increase the disk space. Start a support ticket from the client area and our specialists will make the necessary adjustments.
Your server may be unavailable for up to 2 hours during the increase — the support staff will give you a proper estimate.
Tomorrow, 27.07 4:00 - 15:00 Moscow time (UTC+3), the electricity in our company’s building will be off for maintenance. This will only affect the office building, the datacenter is not affected, all services will work as normal.
Power outage will affect our response times, please expect them to be longer. If you’ve scheduled anything that needs our technical assistance for tomorrow, please consider delaying it until later time.
Yesterday, July 17th, at approximately 21:30 MSK (UTC+3) a part of our conditioning system malfunctioned. To prevent heat damage to the hardware we had to power down several host nodes, including mhost14 and saturn-25.
All servers went back online by 23:30 MSK (UTC+3), but if you are still experiencing any issues please let us know immediately via support ticket or online chat.
Petya ransomware has already infected internet-infrastructure in more than 64 countries. To safeguard our clients and prevent the infection, we've completely filtered port 135 access for all hosting services in the Moscow datacenter.
Ports 135, 139 and 445 remain filtered at present time to prevent SMB-based attacks. If you require internet access to any of these ports, technical support specialists will grant it on a per-request basis. Please open a support ticket from the client area with the request.
Last week we launched failover cloud server, based on cluster supercomputers technology.
How a cloud server could help mitigate financial loss:
The system is built with redundancy. User data and physical nodes of the system are constantly duplicated. When one of the systems fail your project will be immediately restored on an available node.
Read/write operations are done with an SSD, а high speed InfiniBand network connects two clusters.
We cut the price on Virtual Private Servers in half!
Take advantage of reduced server prices and advanced anti-DDoS options.
You can buy a VPS starting from 16 euro per month and experience new level of server configurations. Minimal configuration now includes 2 cores Intel Xeon, not less than 2 Ghz, 2 Gb RAM, and 50Gb disk space.
