RSS Subscribe Telecom / Xtra Email problems - This is not affecting our services
Posted on 02/11/12 05:38PM

As reported in the media, Telecom / Xtra have apparently again had problems with their email services. http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/7899456/Telecom-may-pay-for-email-outage
Please note that this problem with Telecom is not affecting our own email services in anyway. If you are a telecom customer who has been affected by this email problem and want to now switch providers, please contact us to learn how you can switch to our NZ hosted email system.

Our email only services are $18 +gst per month, which includes unlimited email storage and email accounts. Also email accounts can be setup with unlimited domains, if you transfer or register those domains into our system. Our email system also hosted in Auckland and offers POP, IMAP, SMTP connections as well as uses the commercial Atmail webmail system http://atmail.com/. Email is stored on dedicated email servers, so it is a commercial grade system hosted locally in NZ.

One advantage our system also has over many other systems, is that domain names and email accounts are all managed within the same unified control panel, so there is only a single log in, and the control panel has been developed in NZ.

If you are a telecom customer who has been affected by this email problem and want to now switch providers, please contact us to learn how you can switch to our NZ hosted email system.

RSS Subscribe Please update your website software.
Posted on 30/10/12 02:30PM

We have noticed an increased number of clients who haven't been updating their website software, scripts and plugins, which has resulted in them either being hacked, or having malware injected into them. The most common ones which have been targeted are Wordpress and Joomla content management systems. Content management systems are great, as they allow people to easily and quickly update their websites, however they do require the software running in the back-end to be regularly updated. If you are running software on your website, please make sure you regularly update the scripts in your hosting space with the most recent software. It is the website owners responisbility to make sure their website scripts are up to date at all times. Not only will this help to keep your website safe and secure from hackers, it will reduce the work we need to do in dealing with an account that has been compromised. If we detect a problem on the server with a compromised hosting account, our immediate action is to suspend the clients account until the problem has been fixed to minimise problems for other users on the server, which results in downtime for the clients website and other services.

More information on updating your website scripts can be found at http://loungenetwork.co.nz/faqman/index.php?op=view&t=359

RSS Subscribe .kiwi.nz domains will be available from the 11 September 2012
Posted on 30/08/12 02:42PM

.kiwi.nz domains will be available for registration through our Lounge Network Domain Manager from the afternoon of 11 September 2012. They can be registered from this date though our Domain Manager system at www.domains.loungenetwork.co.nz

Please note that there is a 500 domain threshold before their .kiwi.nz domains will be be delegated to DNS during the provisional registration phase. This basically means that .kiwi.nz domains wont work until they hit the 500 threshold. So if they don't reach that threshold, they won't be delegated.
