Web Control Panel restored

As promised, the web control panel on the Suso website has been restored and improved to match the new site better.

Probably the best way to access the control panel is by clicking on the "hosting login" link at the top right of the Suso website. Or you can go straight to it via this address:

https://settings.suso.com/

You'll notice that we've changed to a set of icons for the various categories and functions. This layout will allow us to more easily add and change functionality than our old site allowed, so you can expect more functionality in the future.

Those of you who have accounts on the new shared server and have waited for PHPMyAdmin to use with your database access will finally have that feature available directly through the control panel.

There are still some aesthetic issues to take care of, but the functionality is all there.

UPDATE: If you tried accessing the control panel before 10:20am EST today, please try again. We forgot to open up the firewall.

New suso.com website up and working

Hooray! We've finally released the new Suso website along with an ensemble of websites for news and support. We invite you to look around and give us feedback. You can use many ways to give us feedback, you can use the comments section on this blog, you can send us an e-mail (webmaster@suso.com) or use the live chat feature of the main suso.com and support sites.

Entering our 13th year!

Happy Halloween everyone! Fall or Autumn, whatever you want to call it is probably my favorite time of year. I have lots of good memories that I associate it with. Playing in piles of leaves, changing colors, starting a new year of school, marching band as well as starting Suso. October 31st is a sweet day, not only for trick or treaters but for Suso. For it was on Halloween night in 1997 that I created a new server and added a user to it for my friend Andy living in Seattle. From that day on, the server would be known as Suso. Or for fully qualified domain name nuts, suso.eigenmann.indiana.edu. Andy uploaded some files that night via FTP to his account to get his website started, then we played Diablo until 6am. It was a great time and it still is. ;-)

I wish I could say that I always imagined Suso becoming a great web hosting provider, but honestly back then everything was quite different. There were no major hosting companies like there are now. My focus then as it still is today was on creating services that would help people make great websites. Whether it be a simple website or a social media site, the goal is the same.

Welcome to the Suso News Blog

Welcome to the new Suso News Blog. We decided that a better way of making announcements about new services, changes to existing ones, announcements about downtime, etc. would be to setup a blog. This way we can syndicate the news item titles to our main website, you can subscribe to categories of announcements if you want and so on. We will still use the mailing list we were using before for some very important announcements, but for the most part, we will use this blog.
