Shared Hosting Plans Now Available

Over the past several years, we’ve received many emails asking if we provide hosting to go along with our UBB Product. That day has now come. We’ve been doing this on a small scale for several years and we’re now opening this up to everyone and offering a variety of Hosting Plans. All hosting plans include a discount on a UBB License and Installation.

Our shared servers all run on quad core processors with at least 4 Gigs of memory. We also limit the number of clients per server, so you are not going to be sharing server resources with hundreds of other clients.

We’ll also be offering VPS and dedicated servers very soon.

Invalid HELO – Don’t forget your PTR

If you are handling your own mail on a dedicated server or VPS there is one step that is commonly overlooked and that is asking your host to set a PTR for you.  A PTR is basically a reverse lookup on your IP to resolve the IP to a hostname.

In an effort to combat spam, many mailservers are configured to not accept mail if the IP doesn’t resolve back to the hostname.    If it doesn’t match it’s going to bounce due to an Invalid HELO and your mail isn’t going to be delivered.

So, what you’ll want to do is contact your hosting company and ask them to set a PTR for you.    You’ll need to give them the specific IP and what it should resolve to, making sure that it matches the hostname that your mailserver uses.
