Since yesterday evening the 210.56.51 IP range at our Hong Kong datacenter has become unavailable due to issues at the upstream provider. All servers and VPS in that IP range have been allocated a new IP range. We are in the process of updating the servers and clients affected and expect all clients to be back online by noon today.
We apologize for the inconvenience due to not having received any type of notice from our datacenter beforehand.

SinoHosting is happy to announce the addition of a new location to its international web hosting services. Indeed, starting immediately, we are offering Korea-based web hosting services. The infrastructure (Linux/cPanel) and service plans are the same as our international hosting plans in Hong Kong, Singapore, the US and Europe.
Hosting in Korea is suitable for site owners who are targeting users in Beijing, Tianjin, and the North East of China: Liaoning, Heilongjiang, Jilin, even down to Shandong). Ping time from Korea is faster than Hong Kong for computers accessing from these regions.
SinoHosting servers are colocated in a first tier datacenter in Seoul, South Korea. Our Korean hosting services are currently limited to shared hosting, as such we are unable to provide VPS or dedicated servers in Korea.
As always, SinoHosting is a pioneer in being the first international host in China to offer web hosting services on Korean servers.
To sign up for this service, please go to our international hosting page.

We have been notified of a large scale migration at the Unicom DC we currently use for our shanghai.sinohosting.net server. Due to the potential risk of data failure on top of the expected downtime, we have decided to ensure the availability of our clients sites to move all websites on that server to a new server at another Unicom datacenter in Shanghai.
We apologize for the short notice as the decision had been taken by Unicom withoutnotifying us. The migration is in process and should be completed by tomorrow. Most clients who have their domains with us or use our nameservers will not need to do anything. Clients who manage their domains and use third party DNS however will need to update manually their records to point to the new IP address. We will be opening a support ticket to those clients with instructions about IP change, once their account is migrated to the new server.
If you experience any issue after the server change either with your website or your emails, please submit a support ticket with our technical support team at email@example.com for immediate assistance.

We are happy to announce a major upgrade to our Linux shared hosting package, in China as well as in Hong Kong/overseas. Most packages see an increase of over 100% in terms of resources while the prices stay essentially the same. There is a slight increase in our China hosting packages, although resources are now aligned with our international hosting packages.
Existing clients will benefit of the upgraded packages but will continue to renew at their older prices. All new orders however will be charged at the new prices.
The most important changes:
1) Disk space and bandwidth limits are increased
2) Prices stay the same for basic and business plans, the corporate plan increases to RMB2,500/year
3) There is an increase on all China-hosted plans respectively to 750, 1,500 and 3,000/year
4) Now China-hosted plans have the same disk space and bandwidth limits as the HK/international hosting plans (prices are higher though).
5) Now there is no option to purchase add-on domains. The corporate plan comes can support 10 domains, other plans support 1 domain only. If a client has a different domain he will need to purchase a second hosting package (or upgrade to the corporate plan).
We are also happy to introduce new international hosting locations, which are Miami in the USA and Netherlands in Europe.
Should you have any questions, please contact our sales department at sales @ sinohosting.net

Due to networking issues at the upstream provider, the IP address 126.96.36.199 was unavailable since April 6th, 2012, taking offline all sites hosted on this IP. We have immediately taken the necessary measures to obtain a new IP and have clients sites migrated on that IP in our system.
For clients who are using our nameservers ns19.sinohosting.net / ns20.sinohosting.net their sites should be back online now as they would be automatically updated by the system. For clients using external nameservers however they will need to update manually their records to the new IP. Please open a support ticket to obtain the new IP information.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
