Our team has been busy deploying our cloud offering and thus far we’ve deployed them in Dallas, New York and Singapore. Each time we’ve announced the launch of a new cloud location we’ve said it’s fast, reliable but have not provided many details. Now while we cannot reveal everything we think it’s time to at least discuss the portions we are able to.
The processors we use are going to continue to evolve but as of today we deploy Broadwell, Haswell and Skylake processors. Our choice of processor is currently dependent on availability within a location. Rest assured though regardless of the processor your cloud server is on you’ll experience excellent performance.
Autumn is officially here, marking the end of summer 2019. Even if those sunny skies have come and gone we can still celebrate one last time with a surprise flash sale. This is our biggest sale of the year, offering discounts up to 70% off a new hosting order!
We’re happy to announce all our shared hosting, cloud hosting, reseller hosting and semi dedicated hosting accounts now support QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections). We’ve supported SPDY and HTTP/2 for quite some time due to our use of Litespeed. Litespeed has also supported QUIC for some time but with the rapid development of the QUIC feature we have held off on supporting it. We believe it’s reached a point of stability where we’re comfortable offering it on all hosting plans.
We have been a long time cPanel supporter and partner and we prided ourselves on offering cPanel to our customer base. On June 27th along with all other cPanel partners we received notice by email of a drastic change on how cPanel intends on pricing their product. We reached out to our cPanel account representative on how this will affect not only our web hosting servers but many of our virtual private server and cloud server customers. Our displeasure with this new pricing has been given to the management team at cPanel. We hope the cPanel team re-evaluates their pricing changes decision but if they do not we have already completed an initial evaluation on how this will impact our services.
cPanel 80 was pushed to the RELEASE branch on May 28th, 2019 and since then our team have been hard at work doing our own testing to confirm cPanel 80 is ready for Hawk Host customers. We’re happy to say it’s finally here and all our servers are now running cPanel 80.
Summer may be fast approaching but we’ve still got time for a Spring sale! While our local weather hasn’t felt very much like Spring we’re still going to celebrate in spirit and offer up to 60% off new hosting orders during the sale!
At Hawk Host we always value security and compatibility and with that for the past several years PHP 5.6 has been the default PHP version chosen for new accounts. PHP 5.6 recently reached end of life status ( http://php.net/eol.php ) and more and more applications are alerting users to the existence of PHP 7.1 or newer. We have now decided to continue to offer the best hosting experience the default version of PHP will now be 7.1 going forward.
It’s our pleasure to announce that for the third consecutive year we’ll be an official sponsor of Let’s Encrypt! As our customers continue to enjoy the benefits of free SSL certificates we feel it’s important to give back to the community and the people who make that possible.
Happy holidays everyone! While you’re celebrating and spending time with loved ones we’re getting ready to offer one last holiday surprise, a sale! This will be our last big sale of the year and you can save up to 70% on your new order using the coupons below!
We’re happy to announce we now officially support PHP 7.3 on all our shared, reseller and semi-dedicated and cloud web hosting services. PHP 7.3 is the third point release in the 7.x series and it comes with many outstanding improvements and new features.
