Important System Announcement – Schedule Maintenance

Contents

1. Upgrade - Client Management System (CMS)
2. System Upgrade - Customer Hosting Accounts

Upgrade - Client Management System (CMS)

15-16th November 2008

We will shortly be replacing our current licensing system with our new Client Management System (CMS), which we have been developing over the past 7 months. During this time, you may find that you are unable to login, or place new orders. There may also be short periods where the licensing services are unavailable. We will issue a forced local key command from our licensing system to force the local key.php to be re-synchronise with our servers. This will prevent your software from not working if trying to re-synchronise we are servers. Any downtime will be kept to a minimum.

This new system will provide us with a centralised system for all our products and services. The product licensing and distribution code from our current licensing System has been combined with our accounting software and integrated into our new Client Management System (CMS), written specifically by us. This includes systems for our new services due to be announced in the next two months.

The third phase of the rollout will take place over on the 15-16th November 2008. This will begin by replacing the current licensing system and importing all existing accounts, orders and licenses into our new Client Management System (CMS). During this time, no new orders or accounts will be allowed. Once that has been completed, we will open the order system and account registration. These customers will be issued with new usernames and passwords, if you currently hold a hosting account with us, these will be merged.

The forth phase will take place in November / December 2008 when we will announce our new services. Our new custom systems are required for these along with the need for a centralised Client Management System (CMS).

System Upgrade - Customer Hosting Accounts

Sunday 22nd November 2008

We will be taking our MySQL servers offline for approximately 30 minutes in order to set up replication to our new backup platform. Although our website will continue to operate, the Customer System, Support System and Forums, along with our CMS, will be unavailable.

During this time you will be unable to access your account on our website, download files or install our products. Support queries will be held in an e-mail queue and picked up by the ticket system once the work is completed.

Our new backup system allows us much more granular backups more regularly.

We will also be taking this opportune to upgrade the servers software to the latest stable software versions:

CPanel
PHP 5
Apache
NuSphere Express
PhpMyAdmin
MySQL 5 Database Server
ASSP – Anti-Spamming Software

  Domain name phishing warning
Posted by: webnetics - 03-11-08, 08:53 PM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

Dear Valued Customer,

You are receiving this important system announcements, because you currently hold an account with us.

We have discovered today that domain name scammers are attempting to contact domain holders with US based domain names. You may have received a phishing email informing you of the need to keep up-to-date with the registration of domain names. This email says it is from Webnetics UK Ltd. but leads you to a different web address. To protect your own details, please do not follow the links in this email.

I have included a copy of the fake Webnetics UK Ltd. email for your reference at the bottom of this email.

While we intend to inform all our customers regularly of the need to re-register a domain and keep there contact details up to date, we will always direct you to a recognised Webnetics UK Ltd. website (Virtual Web Designs) link. Any action necessary regarding your account with us will involve a link that begins with http://www.vwdesigns.co.uk/portal

“THE PHISHING EMAIL

Dear Domain Holder,

This message is a reminder to help you keep the contact data associated with your domain registration up-to-date.

As of October 31, 2003 we are required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to send you this reminder by the Anniversary date of each registered Domain Name that is subject to the terms and conditions of that organization.

Below is a list of domain names with your email address listed as the registrant or administrative contact. The current contact information associated with the domain may be verified by following the link provided.

If any of the contact data is inaccurate, it must be corrected. If you need assistance in accessing your account to make these updates, please reply to this email. If the contact data is accurate, no further action is required to comply with this notice.

Please remember that under the terms of your registration agreement, the provision of false Whois (contact) information can be grounds for cancellation of your domain name registration.

Domain Names with Anniversary Dates between November 1 and November 30

Name: Registration Date:

Samplewebsiteaddress.com Nov 07, 2005

  Important System Announcement
Posted by: webnetics - 29-10-08, 08:49 PM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

Dear Valued Customer,

We would like to remind all our customers that our new automated system which is part of our CMS (Client Management System), will go live on the 1st November, as announced in our last newsletter (October).

Our new automated system, will take us one step closer to going paperless and being environmentally friendly, like our hosting which is now 100% carbon neutral. The CMS will issue the following information in the form of emails, some with PDF attachments:

Automatic

• Upcoming Domain Renewals - Starting at 60 days before the domain expires
• Hosting Accounts Renewals – Starting at 30 days
• Additional Services – Starting at 30 days
• Whois data reminders – These will be issued at random
• Invoicing – Automatically issued 30 days before a product is due for renewal.
• Invoice Reminders
• Recurring Payments (Subscription), synchronised with WorldPay
• All domain data will be automatically synchronised with Nominet and our gTLD registrar
• All renewals are synchronised with our servers i.e hosting, extras, software leasing, etc

NOTE

There will be some crossover with invoicing and reminders, as these would have been issued before the system went live. Any automated invoices issued after the crossover will be sorted out manually. Paper invoices will still be issued to those customers who have not opted to pay online, but will still receive an electronic invoice / reminder.
