Interested in knowing what the 20i team have been up to over the past few weeks? You’re in the right place.

App-Optimized Managed Hosting

New to Managed Hosting on a virtual private server: App Optimization.

VPS managed hosting optimised for Magento and WordPress

Our Managed Hosting is fully optimized for the two most popular CMS and ecommerce platforms –  Magento and WordPress. It can make them faster and more feature-packed.

For Magento, the server is preconfigured with Redis and ElasticSearch: ready for the latest version. For WordPress, it means full access to our extensive WordPress Tools, as well as Stackcache. You can manage users, plugins and themes, create staging sites and do a WordPress Checksum report, all from within My20i.

The App Optimization can be applied to all new VPS and servers that don’t have already have packages on them. It’s a great way to get even better performance on our Managed Hosting. Resellers can make more sales, with our VPS discounts.

Making My20i even better

We’re continuing to improve the user experience in the My20i control panel.

Based on your feedback, our UX experts have made changes that will save you time, enjoy a more connected experience and increase productivity.

For management of domains and the CDN, we’ve optimized the sidebar navigation and improved the user interface. In the Migration Center, we’ve updated the user flow to make migrations simpler and more efficient.

The upgrades have also been applied to StackCP, which is used by customers of Resellers. More updates are coming soon!

WHMCS and My20i updates

For Resellers , we’ve updated the connections between My20i/WHMCS module.

Data center location

Resellers can now choose between our UK and USA data centers in WHMCS. Another data center location allows hosting packages and virtual machines to be provisioned in that particular part of the world.

Usage Statistics

The 20i WHMCS module now supports the retrieval of usage statistics. That includes disk and bandwidth usage as well as any limits that you may have set. This can be useful if you charge customers for usage within WHMCS.

Resellers can now sell the 12 Core, 800GB SSD, 64GB Ram Self-Managed or Managed Virtual Private Servers through WHMCS.
