Thames is dead. Long live Avon and Nene.

We have retired our oldest hosting server, Thames, and it with two new servers called Avon and Nene. All websites and services hosted by Thames have been transferred across to the new servers.

This replacement is the first of a series of upgrades we have planned for 2017.

As part of the upgrade, we've moved to a new Hosting Control Panel. The new control panel software is more intuitive and reliable than it's predecessor WebsitePanel (which, if we are honest, we didn't particularly get on with either).

In October, Microsoft announced changes to UK pricing that will take take effect from 1st January 2017. The reasons given for the price increase is to harmonise UK pricing with the euro level pricing in the EU/EFTA region and the reduced value of the pound against the dollar in recent months.

From 1st January 2017, the prices for all Microsoft Cloud Services including Office 365. Azure, Dynamics 365 etc. will increase by 22%. However, because many of these services are price-protected for the term of 12-month subscription, the price change will only occur at renewal. For example, if you took out a new Office 365 subscription in September 2016, the price you pay will remain the same until September 2017, after which the price for the subscription will increase in line with current levels.

Similarly, Hosted Exchange prices will also increase, but by a smaller amount. From 1st January 2017, Hosted Exchange prices will increase by 12%.

These price increases will impact all suppliers of Microsoft cloud services in the UK including those purchase directly from Microsoft.
