The market is flooded with plenty of domain names and as .COM becomes less available, it’s a good idea to stay at the .TOP to be always remembered. We’re thrilled to announce the launch of .TOP at a fantastic price of just $3.95, valid till 31st August, 2015!

Why .TOP? 

Regardless of the scale and the nature of the business, .TOP is where everyone wants to be!
  • Generic – It needs no interpretation and can be registered by anyone, it’s flexible and memorable
  • Stands out - Your business needs a short and crisp TLD name that helps you cut through the clutter and makes you stand out. That’s exactly what .TOP has to offer to you
  • Top means the best – TOP is synonymous with the best, it offers high credibility and trust of quality
Because .TOP is generic, it‘s suitable for everyone. Big brands like Apple, Baidu, Chanel, Chrome, Flickr, Gmail, Google, Kindle and Yahoo have chosen .TOP.

We have made a few changes to the life cycle of the .EU domains on our systems following a change made by the registry. EU domains will now follow a life cycle similar to that of gTLDs.

For domains registered before September 15th, 2014, the domains will expire on the 2nd last day of the expiring month and will then go through a 25 day renewal grace period. On non renewal during this period, the domain will be deleted and the customer will have to restore it within 40 days. For domains registered after September 15, 2014, the domains will expire on the same day as the registration date in the expiring month and then go through a 25 day renewal grace period. On non renewal, the domain will be deleted and would need to be restored within 40 days.
In simpler terms, post 3rd August, the expiry date that is shown on OB is the date the domain will expire on.

If the domain is renewed anytime before the domain goes into quarantine, the expiry date will be extended by 1 year. If the domain is renewed/reactivated after it goes into quarantine, the expiry date will be extended by 2 years.

We have been receiving complaints from WordPress users about problems with Chrome Beta v44. Symptoms include redirecting WordPress sites (including sites that do not have an SSL installed) to https://, regardless of their settings.


This was probably intended as a security improvement, to suggest HTTPs to the server wherever possible. Unluckily, it's breaking WordPress and other web server installations all over the web.

When the user’s browser is rolled back to previous version 43 – the issue is no longer present. 

The Chrome developers are aware of the issue and have already pushed an update.

However, until a patch is rolled out, a large amount of WordPress sites will appear to be insecure in Chrome. Chances are good that they will push out a bug fix earlier because of the growing number of complaints.

For now, if you experience the same issue, just uninstall the beta version and reinstall the stable one. Here you can follow the ongoing case: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=505268

Magento started out back in 2007 as a small project run by a private US company based in California. In 2010, eBay bought 49% of the company’s shares and as of June 2011, Magento is 100% owned by the biggest online retailer.

It combines the conventions of the object-oriented programming paradigm and the model-view-controller architecture. Also, the entity–attribute–value model is used for data storage purposes.

Magento comes with a basic e-commerce theme, which can easily be customized by editing the PHP, HTML and CSS. If you want, you can easily install a custom theme via FTP or SSH without losing your content or the layout of the pages themselves.

The basic built-in functionality can easily be extended using any of the plugins developed by the supportive Magento community. Also, integrating Magento with various third-party payment gateways, database applications, shipment tracking apps, etc. is quick and easy.

For companies yet to make the move to cloud hosting for data services, next week marks an important date as a common version of Microsoft Server 2003 reaches end of life.

On July 14th 2015, Microsoft will end support for Microsoft Server 2003. This will leave thousands of businesses exposed to security threats as the software becomes obsolete. Any Windows Server 2003 machines you have running in your office, they will continue to operate and you can learn more here.

Windows 2003 servers won’t suddenly stop working as soon as support expires. They will keep running and your users will still have access the resources they require. However, there are several issues to be aware of. - See more at: http://www.quartetservice.com/windowsserver2003-endoflife/?gclid=CjwKEAjwlPOsBRCWq5_e973PzTgSJACMiEp2YQyLwM8h5zpLJeke7XzSnX8jumUSlc-_N0lUkI3j4xoC4unw_wcB#sthash.1snvMqgL.dpuf

What options do I have if I'm still running 2003 in-house?
Your IT technician c‎an upgrade you to a more recent version or you can use this as a chance to take advantage of a cloud based exchange service like Thexyz.


What are the advantages to moving my Exchange server to the cloud?
A major advantage is cost, businesses that move to the cloud usually save 4 times as much than when using an in-house server. There is also the advantage of not having to worry about the regular security updates that need to be applied.


What about my existing emails? Will they be lost?
We will perform a full remote email migration that will migrate all existing email, contacts, calendars and tasks from your current Exchange server, to a new 2013 server that is remotely hosted.


Will there be any downtime during the migration?
No, we handle email migrations on a daily basis and have developed a process to ensure all mail is migrated and there is no downtime with email service.


Why should I choose Thexyz for Exchange hosting?
Thexyz has been hosting Exchange email for nearly 10 years and have since made email, our main service offering. With Thexyz you can enjoy. 100% network uptime, 100GB of email storage and send 50MB attachments. ‎


What is the cost for an email migration?
Email migrations are charged at $9.95 per mailbox and can be ordered here. You will also need to get your destination mailboxes setup with Thexyz here.


How long does the email migration process take?
Typically, most accounts are fully migrated within a couple of hours. This can take longer for larger mailboxes. It is rare for a migration to last longer than 24 hours and mailboxes are fully operational during migration process.We can also migrate multiple accounts simultaneously via an excel spreadsheet.


How can I move to hosted exchange and keep my costs to a minimum?
By using exchange with our webmail, you can mix and match a combination of exchange accounts with standard IMAP on the same domain. The advantage here is cost, why pay $14.95 for an exchange mailbox when you only need a particular mailbox to have email access? This way you can purchase our premium email accounts for $1.95 per box instead.

A look at some of the leading email clients available on the iPhone

While the native iOS email client is enough for most, there are some alternative email clients you can run on your device. Some like Triage should be used along side the email client as it does not have all the features to be able to be a viable replacement. These apps will mostly support IMAP services like Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo Mail, Thexyz and Outlook.com. Only a few also supported Microsoft Exchange and MobileSync connections.


Microsoft Outlook

  • Price: free
  • Exchange: yes
  • Thexyz/IMAP: yes
The new Microsoft Outlook app has brought OWA to the iPhone with a matching layout.


Inboxcube

  • Price: free
  • Exchange: yes
  • Thexyz/IMAP: yes
Seems to put attachments in front view with what seems like quite an innovative email client. Whilst it does not work with Exchange accounts, it does support IMAP accounts without issue.




Boxer

  • Price: $4.99
  • Exchange: yes
  • Thexyz/IMAP: yes
Boxer supports all major email providers including Microsoft Exchange (ActiveSync), Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Outlook.com/Hotmail, and IMAP. 




CloudMagic

  • Price: free
  • Exchange: yes
  • Thexyz/IMAP: yes
CloudMagic will not only support Exchanged hosted accounts, it will also work with most IMAP providers and support multiple accounts. It also has full integration with Salesforce.com, Zendesk, Pocket, Evernote, OneNote, Trello and MailChimp.




Mailbox

  • Price: free
  • Exchange: no
  • Thexyz/IMAP: no
Mailbox made big news when they were purchased by Dropbox in 2013. Lighter on features than some of the others and currently only support Gmail and iCloud.




Triage: Email First Aid

  • Price: $2.99
  • Exchange: no
  • Thexyz/IMAP: yes
Triage is not much of an email client, instead it allows you to quickly sort through emails, deleting the ones you don't need and bit by bit, allows you to take control of your inbox.
