New Control Panel
A moment that many of us at UK2 have been waiting for has finally arrived, we’re ready to open up access to our new control panel to customers!
At the moment this is still a beta test and there will still be the option to log into the old control panel if something doesn’t work quite as well as it should. Our developers have been working hard getting this ready to use but there are always some unforseen bugs to fix and features to add so please let us know what you think, or if you find any problems.
There’s still some cosmetic improvements due to be completed so don’t worry if some of the sub pages look a little different between now and March, we’re so excited by this we just can’t wait until then to release it for you though! You should notice some vast improvements in the speed of navigation and management of multiple domains as well as the new Dashboard/Homepage.
We’re planning to make the permanent change to the new Control Panel on the 3rd of March so please try it out before then! When you first log in you’ll be asked to check your current contact details and update them if necessary and you can also pick a new, easy to remember username to log in with.
For some of the older customers at UK2 they will remember when each domain had its own control panel, and you couldn’t manage multiple products and services together. This release marks the culmination of the change from this to an ‘account centric’ system. In this system we try and present you with an overview of the information you want and allow you to manage all your UK2 products and services together. As you can imagine in a set-up where each section (such as dedicated servers, web hosting or e-mail) was handled by a separate system it has been a tricky task to bring this all together and update a lot of old code.
If you are one of these customers then thanks go to you for your patience in sticking with us whilst we went through some painful changes on the various UK2 control panels.
And finally just a word of thanks from me to the developers who’ve worked so hard on this, and a promise that we’re still working to improve our control panel and have some amazing changes planned for the future.
