What is HC10?

HC10, the latest addition to the Hosting Controller family of products is a true hybrid control panel aimed at providing a perfectly aligned solution for managing and selling Cloud and On-Premises products and extends a single pane of glass to both 1-Tier and 2-Tier Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) partners for managing, selling, billing, metering and provisioning directly into Office 365.

**********************************
HC8 Patch - Version 8.13 (March 7, 2012)
***********************************

Before you apply build 13 please go through “Modified Implementation” details and “Enhancements” to understand how this release will affect your existing setups. In case of any confusion or concerns please consult with HC Support team.

Note: In October 
Microsoft announced that the /hosting mode option for deploying Exchange for multi-tenant hosting will not be carried forward into the next version of Exchange. Going forward (starting with Exchange 2010 SP2), hosters should use the on-premises configuration of Exchange to run a multi-tenant hosted Exchange infrastructure which will be fully supported by Microsoft and offers a broader set of features to be offered to end customers. Therefore Exchange 2010 SP1 "/hosting" switch in "hosting mode" is no longer supported by HC from build 13 onwards. If you are using Exchange 2010 SP1 "/hosting" switch in "hosting mode" then do not apply this release.

******************************
Version 8.13 (January 30, 2012)
*******************************
For Windows

  • Modified Implementation: User Manager Module
    • Previously HC control panel users i-e Host/webAdmin were also system level users. Now all users i.e. Host, Reseller and webAdmin, created through HC are no longer created on the system. These users are now created only in HC Database.
    • HC will no longer add default FTP user for newly created webAdmin account. Existing webAdmin FTP users will be migrated as FTP users. All FTP users are now managed under “Domains :: FTP Users".
    • In Hosting Plan, User Accounts field name is now changed to FTP Accounts.
    • Default directory structure of domain has been changed. HC used to create subfolders of Reseller and Webadmin i-e x:\webspace\reseller\webadmin\domain.com. From now on all website folders will be placed on the root of webspace i-e x:\webspace\domain.com. Existing domains folder structure will not be changed and will continue to run under the old path. This change of implementation ensures smooth migration process of domains from one WebAdmin to another.
    • Now every website will have its own FTP user unlike build-12 or prior where webAdmin could use default FTP to manage all websites running under his account.
    • FTP users management has been moved from User Manager to “Domains :: FTP Users".
    • Group Manager has been removed from the panel.
  • Feature Added: Domain Registration Module 
    • Now HC users who were managing domains through eNom or any other HC supported registrar can import and manage  already registered domains in HC Panel from Add Domain. HC will confirm the domain authenticity by sending call to the registrar and after confirmation, will add it in HC database. Once a domain is successfully added; the user can then manage further operations like renew, transfer, contact/billing update etc. on supported domain registrar through HC panel.
    • A "Transfer Domain" feature is added for eNom and RealTime Register only.
      • Now user can initiate domain transfer.
      • The EPP Key retrieval feature is provided that is used in Domain Transfer Requests.
      • User can now Lock/Unlock domain status from HC panel.
    • All type of contacts can now be updated through HC panel.
    • Ability to check WHOIS of an already registered domain from HC panel.
    • Now HC supports eNom domain registration on x64 server.
    • WHOIS option is also provided in HC auto-signup.
  • Feature Added: Earlier a WebAdmin hosted on Windows server could not have websites on Linux servers and vice versa. Now a WebAdmin can have both Windows and Linux based websites.
  • Modified Implementation: ACL Manager is removed from Tools section and now it is under Folder Manager section.
  • Modified Implementation: At Host and Reseller level, Options of "Action to Perform" on disk usage and bandwidth threshold have been updated under My Server section.
  • Feature Added: Support for BlackBerry Server authentication from Domain Controller.
  • Feature Added: Virtualization Module
    • Now multiple virtual machines can be setup simultaneously.
