Transparency report on data requests and information on how they are handled

Mar 15 - host1 users getting notifications from autoSSL: The new web hosting automatically generates a valid SSL certificate for you. This gives your site secure https access. You will receive an email whenever your SSL certificate is auto-renewed. You may also generate and install your own SSL certificate. If you do this, exclude the domain from AutoSSL via the SSL/TLS Status icon (you can disable the AutoSSL for your default cotse domain as well this way).

We now also support Webdisk/WebDAV, which will enable you to mount your web space as a local disk on your computer, making it much easier to edit your web sites. Please remember that it is your web space you are mounting and even though you can create folders that will not be web accessible, it is still a shared web server, don't copy over private information unless it is first encrypted.

We again sincerely apologize for the unrecoverable data for those of you who did not back up when we lost the old host1 (Click the Backup Icon in the new setup...we are still a Privacy Service, we don't back up your data, instead we give you the tools to do it. This is so that when you delete something, you know it's gone and cannot be retrieved by some entity), we do think you'll like the new setup, it is gross over kill (meaning very fast), and with many new features.

Mar 11 - Note - When adding your own domains to the new cpanel setup, click the addon domains icon, the dns zone editors are only for modifying after you have set up the addon domain. If you are hosting DNS elsewhere, the new IP for host1 is

Mar 11 - Update 8 am EDT - The shared web hosting server host1 is now back online with more features (including webdisk, SSL, easier website creation tools, and much more) and better performance. We have also increased quotas and defaults. Those of you on this server will receive a new welcome message to the web hosting and a new password.

Please note that your old host1 password will not work, Your welcome message to the new server contains your new password.

Unfortunately, the failure of the old host1 was a complete disk array loss. What this means is that all data was lost in this crash, so if you did not run a backup, you will need to recreate your web space. This includes adding any of the add-on domains you had hosted with us to the new host1 server.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvienence that this will cause for some of you. Please contact helpdesk with any specific questions.

Mar 6 - We will soon be disabling accounts that have expired and have not been renewed, if your account is one and you wish to avoid interruption in service, you may renew here.

Notice - Please be aware that we will NEVER send you an unexpected e-mail with a link, an attachment, nor asking for personal information like your password. If we have a mass message to convey it is only posted here. If it is important, you may receive a mail that says "Please check Notices" and that is all.

Any mail you receive pretending to come from us with a link, an attachment, or asking for personal information, like your password, is called a Phish. These are common. You do not want to fall for them. There are many filters in Options to block them and we block obvious ones once detected, but the only 100% filter is to block all email, so some will always slip through. It is in your hands not to fall for those that do. If there are any questions, please contact helpdesk.

Information: Spammers have a technique of sending e-mail with the majority of the addresses sent to in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) line, this results in receiving a mail without your address as the To line. This does not mean the mail has been misdirected to your account. It means a spammer had your address in the BCC line.

Reminder: Because we are a privacy service, we do not back up your personal e-mail. This means that when you delete it, it is irretreivably gone. It is not floating around in some backup that can be retrieved from us against your will. However, it also means you must download and save your important mail, if you delete it, we can't restore it.

For optimum privacy with the service use a pop3s mail app and set it to delete the mail from the server after retrieval. We also recommend that your local mail store be an encrypted volume. Once your mail is removed from the server by your mail app, we no longer have a copy, no mail backups and we are deliberately not a cloud service for the same reason. This puts you in full control of your mail and its privacy. When you delete it, it can't be retrieved and there is no record of it being there.

Custom domain - You can also use your own registered domain with us (this is the preferred method of most of our users). We have no limit on the number of private e-mail domains you host with us. Your own domains will work with our service just like all the domains we already offer. If you wish to do this please contact helpdesk with your account name and the registered domain name so we can set it up. We can host both web and e-mail for your domain or just the e-mail, your choice.

All of our e-mail features will work with both our domains and your own domain after doing so (in other words, you don't lose any of your cotse domains and addresses, you just gain new ones with your own domain), including unlimited aliases in the form of

Unlike our domains, your account name will not appear in the e-mail address for your own domain. We can also point specific aliases at other cotse accounts if you and your family, friends, or business users also have accounts with us. This service is free with your paid account.
