If you are on an older shared hosting package that isn’t listed, you are able to upgrade your account immediately via My XILO by clicking Your Packages and then selecting Upgrade / Downgrade.

There is no additional cost and the monthly package price remains the same as it has always been.

Further details of the exploit can be found below:

Until we can confirm or deny these reports, or verify the claims, we have taken the immediate decision to lock down SSH access to our servers - for security.

This means that SSH access to any of our shared, reseller or premium hosting servers has been blocked at our firewalls.

Self-managed dedicated server, VPS and colocation customers are advised to take immediate steps to firewall their servers to prevent any malicious activity. Managed dedicated customers will be reviewed on a case by case basis by our support teams.

Fun fun fun Friday. A sunny special offer.. 1 year free.

We’re offering new customers 50% off a bi-annual shared hosting package. Meaning if you sign up for 2 years, we’ll give you one of them completely free!

Just enter ‘FRI365’ when completing our online order form.

You’ll also be able to register a free domain (or transfer one from another provider) for free* and if you’re currently with another host using cPanel, we’ll move your site(s) over without any downtime, free.

Note: This coupon has no expiry date but has a limited number of uses. Don’t delay otherwise you might miss out on this amazing offer. Referrals can be made with this offer.

New cPanel Shared Hosting packages.

Our new shared hosting packages offer even better value for money as well as a discount for paying yearly, in addition to a free domain registration or transfer.

If you are with another hosting company, we’ll gladly migrate your sites free of charge (as long as they are currently using cPanel) so that you can enjoy reliable service and excellent support from our UK-based support team.

The new plans are as follows:

SH-1: 1GB Disk Space, 5GB Bandwidth
SH-2: 2GB Disk Space, 25GB Bandwidth
SH-5: 5GB Disk Space, 50GB Bandwidth
SH-7: 7GB Disk Space, 75GB Bandwidth
SH-10: 10GB Disk Space, 100GB Bandwidth

Our free domain promotion is still valid for all accounts that are paid annually or bi-annually.

We understand that some current customers may want to transfer to the new packages. This should not be a problem, however, some customers maybe on very old packages and as such older servers where such upgrades are not possible. Please contact us if you are an existing customer to discuss your upgrade.

New cPanel/WHM Reseller packages.

With our new range of starter and pro packages, you’re able to offer your customers more bandwidth and disk space, as well as being able to save money every month.

If you are with another hosting company, we’ll gladly migrate your sites free of charge (as long as they are currently using cPanel) so that you can enjoy reliable service and excellent support from our UK-based support team.

The new plans are as follows:

RS-5: 5GB Disk Space, 50GB Bandwidth
RS-10: 10GB Disk Space, 100GB Bandwidth
RS-20: 20GB Disk Space, 200GB Bandwidth
RS-30: 30GB Disk Space, 300GB Bandwidth
RS-40: 40GB Disk Space, 400GB Bandwidth
RS-50: 50GB Disk Space, 500GB Bandwidth

Our free domain promotion is still valid for all accounts that are paid annually or bi-annually.

Note: Currently this only applies to our Linux-based accounts. We are reviewing our Windows reseller accounts and will be launching new products soon! :)

We understand that some current customers may want to transfer to the new packages.
