A Quick Update

I just wanted to post a quick update letting everyone know that I am still hanging in there and I am hoping and praying that this whole situation can be settled quickly. At this moment, it looks like we will have our preliminary hearing on March 10, 2009, but that date is not set in stone. I will post here when I know more.

Temporarily Closed

Hi Everyone,
As all of my clients and many others know, I will be closed to new clients for an unknown amount of time. The software that we offer to everyone(the website builder) was purchased from a developer several month's ago. Unfortunately, the actual ownership of the software has been questioned by another hosting provider who offers a similar program. The other hosting provider filed DMCA complaints against us which requires we not use the software until we have been to court and a ruling has been made.

At this point, no court date has been set but we are prepared to challenge this other hosting provider using items such as receipts from where we purchased the software, emails proceeding us purchasing the software, and other documents proving our ownership.

We feel that the issue will be handled quickly and we plan to come back with a bang! Some new features will include:
*a new billing system to handle all payments
*a new DEDICATED server where all sites will be hosted
*UNLIMITED bandwith offerings on all hosting plans
*a new hosting plan which included UNLIMITED everything (storage, bandwith, email, etc.)
*and more

We hope you understand that this issue has been completely out of our hands. The complaints that were filed must be complied with under Federal law even if they were false. We plan to offer a GREAT Re-Grand Opening Special when we do open back up to compensate for the issue.

Thanks for understanding!

Here they come!!!

We wanted to start the New Year off right so we have been working hard on some new features for everyone. This update will arm your admin areas with two brand new links.

One link that will be added to your admin area is the client resource link. This link will take you to our NEW client resource area. The client resource area contains links to important information, a few reminders, information on our NEW video areas, and a link to the NEW GracefulHosting Forum.

The other link that is being added to your admin area should really help you guys out. How often do you go to your admin area to actually add products or make some changes to your settings? Most would say not that often. You're going to check on that mooola! You know, those orders that are pouring in. Instead of having to click through the menus to get to the orders area, you now have a link right in the header that takes you directly to the orders area.

Apart from these two links in your update, all of the links in the header of your admin area are getting a facelift (about time, huh!.) We are aslo updating the manual order area to fix the foreign language text that was appearing in the discounts and shipping boxes. You can also feel a little more secure because we are beefing up the security of your system with a few minor changes (you'll never even know we made them...we promise.) One more new feature that will be very helpful to those who are just starting to build their store or those who like to close their store for updates, the view your store button will no longer reflect your open/closed status. This means even if your store is closed to the public, you will be able to see your store by clicking the link in your admin area.

Just email me if you have any questions (or issues {we hope you don't have to email us about this}) . If you don't know how to update your system visit this link .: :. to watch a video showing how to operate the update manager.

Thanks and I wish you all a great year!

Client Resource Area

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to announce the new client resource area. You can view it here : . There you will have access to the NEW client only forum, links to the blog, some reminders, and an area for our instrcutional videos. Right now we only have the old, pitiful, low quality videos in the area but we are working hard to get new ones made that will be much nicer.

We also plan to release an update pretty soon that will change the manual order entry settings and add a link to the client resource area in the banner. More information will be posted here when we release the updates and upload the new videos.
