New service fee for ICP registration

March 18th, 2011 shadmin

Starting on March 21st we will be charging a service fee for new clients looking to host in China who will need to apply for an ICP license through us. This is due to the increased complexity, work and time now needed to apply for an ICP license.

The service fee is set to RMB800, payable at the beginning of the application. In case of unsuccessful application after 6 months, we can refund 50% or RMB400. The remaining RMB400 is non-refundable.

Clients who already have an ICP license will not be charged that fee and will therefore only pay the normal hosting and, when applicable, the domain registration fee.

Before placing the order or applying please make sure that you meet the requirements and can provide all documents as listed on our ICP web page.

The Management

Free dedicated IP addresses with Enterprise email hosting plans

July 27th, 2010 shadmin

In our constant search to provide the best value for our clients, we are proud to announce that as of today all our enterprise email hosting plans will now come with a free dedicated IP address.

With a dedicated IP address, risks of the IP being blacklisted, which affects from time to time accounts on shared servers, will be basically removed. This will also improve email delivery and the overall service level.

All dedicated IP addresses will have a reverse DNS in place as before.

If you currently have an enterprise email hosting plan, you can contact us to get your account setup with a free dedicated IP address as well.

Above offer is valid for accounts hosted on Hong Kong or USA servers only, we are unable to offer this service for email hosting plans hosted on our mainland China servers.

We are happy to announce the official launch of our affiliate program, one of the first by any host in China. Affiliates can earn USD10 for each sale referred to our website, with the minimum payout being USD100. Payment is done by Paypal or wire transfer.

Domain name sales (without hosting) or sales for which payment was not received will not earn commissions.

If you are a site owner, after signing up you can download from your affiliate accounts banners with your affiliate tracking code, which you can place on your website. This affiliate program is opened to clients and non-clients.

January 26th, 2009 shadmin

We are happy to announce that new hosting accounts for our China Linux servers will be set up using CPanel. This will allow us to improve the general experience of our customers, while providing more options and functionalities.
