SinoHosting is pround to announce that starting April 1st, 2017, its cPanel shared hosting plans are upgraded with immediate effect. The change applies to all shared hosting plans (Linux), both for China and Hong Kong/International.
More specifically, the Basic and Basic China plans are now increased to 2GB disk space and 10GB monthly bandwidth. The Business and Business China plan are now increased to 10GB disk space and 100GB monthly bandwidth. The Corporate and Corporate China plans are increased to 50GB disk space and 500GB monthly bandwidth.
Another change is that the Business plan (Hong Kong & International locations) now can host three websites instead of one previously.
By doubling the allocated disk space on all plans, SinoHosting is striving to provide the most competitive and cost effective hosting packages in the industry in China.
There is no price increase with the increased disk and bandwidth allocations. The Basic plan however will not include from this date a free domain registration, which will remain available for the Business and Corporate plans.
You can review the upgraded plans from the links below:

-Hong Kong & International Hosting: www.sinohosting.net/web-hosting.php
We are working on further changes to our line up on services which will be effective in the coming month.

Some new changes have been introduced by the relevant authorities in regard to the ICP license application and requirements. More specifically:
1) During the application, the website must be offline (403 or 404 status)
2) Previously, it was possible to run the website on a Hong Kong or oversea server while the license was being processed. That is not allowed any more.
3) Successful applicants must display and maintain their ICP license in the footer of their website homepage with a link to the relevant government website. This was always the rule but enforcement was lax. Now it is a hard requirement and not doing so can result in the cancellation of the ICP license.
4) It is not allowed to park or forward domains without ICP license towards websites that have valid ICP licenses. To do so, the parked or forwarded domain must also have an ICP license.
You can learn more about these new rules and more details about the ICP license application procedure and requirements at www.sinohosting.net/icp.php

Due to the recent change of format of the business licenses in China (the merging of the three types of licenses in a single one), clients with websites hosted in mainland China are required to submit their new license to ensure their information is up-to-date with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, which overseas the ICP license system. We have received a notification from our datacenter to submit each client documents as soon as possible, and clients who do not provide such documents in due time will see their website suspended.
As such, all SinoHosting clients are kindly requested to submit the following documents as soon as possible:
1. New company license (三证合一)
2. Legal Person identity document (Chinese ID card/Oversea passport)
3. Contact person ID card (must be Chinese national), two sides required
4. 责任书 (scanned copy, we will send you the document to sign)
5. 核验单 (scanned copy, we will send you the document to sign)
6. Your ICP registration password
Our local staff will open shortly a support ticket to all clients hosted in China to arrange the sending of the documents. If you are a SinoHosting client and do not hear back from us by September 1st, 2016, please open a support ticket to us or send an email directly to email@example.com
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

It appears that over the last few days Gmail (both personal and Google Apps) are inaccessible from most networks in mainland China, including through Mobile Apps and other mail clients. For business people living in China or operating here relying on Gmail or Google Apps for their electronic communications this is a critical issue with a major effect on their business communications.
SinoHosting offers two business email solutions that can potentially solve this problem and ensure continuous access to your emails in China.
1) Corporate Email Hosting: Affordable email solutions running on the same platform as our web hosting (cPanel), available at three locations: Shanghai, Hong Kong and Los Angeles (USA). All three are accessible from China but obviously the Shanghai location is more suitable if most of the users are based in China.
2) Microsoft Office365 Business Essentials: This is a hosted exchange product backed by Microsoft that is available on a per mailbox basis that includes not only email but all the business productivity tools from Microsoft. We are a partner of Office365 for both Hong Kong and China.
Of course, clients using our web hosting plans do not need to purchase a separate email solution as the included email accounts can be used fine from China.

As announced previously, SinoHosting has launched this month its new hosted exchange plan, or more exactly the Microsoft Office365 email hosting solution. Powered by Microsoft award-winning exchange service, it goes beyond Outlook to include other tools that small businesses will find useful in their day-to-day business: calendar, contacts, tasks manager, file sharing, online conferencing, Office online etc.
SinoHosting will be offering only the Microsoft Office365 Business online. Clients can choose either the mainland China server or Hong Kong server. The price per year is RMB750, which includes initial configuration and support by SinoHosting.
Please check our website for more details. If you have any questions about this service, please contact our sales department.

Due to popular demand, SinoHosting will be introducing by year end both Google Apps and Office 365 for clients who request these solutions. These will be integrated with our hosting plans or offered as a standalone service. You can have a single billing through SinoHosting and we take care of the set up for you.
These will be available with the relaunch of our website with a new design which is scheduled at the end of 2014. Stay tuned!
