Merry Christmas! (Happy Hanukkah!)
Head ups!! There are a large number of changes coming to KartHost over the next 90 days. All Positive, some happening soon. Lets discuss some of these:
Advanced Managed VPS Hosting for WordPress - All our clients that are using this service (you are if you have DIY Self-Managed WordPress, Managed WordPress, or using our EZWP Complete Package) are being moved away for their existing Convesio Container using PHP 7.2 (a special type of PHP) to the latest 7.X version of PHP, PHP 7.4.
There isn't anything you need to do, the Convesio team will be handling all the migrations and they will be seamless, no down time. However, if you manage you own DNS (your domain is not registered at KartHost) you will need to change your IP addresses in your DNS A Record and don't worry we will be contacting you to coordinate those changes before anything is started on your site.
KartHost Customer Center - We will be making changes to the KartHost Customer Center. You will notice changes and we will have more about this in the coming weeks, especially if you have Sub-Accounts set up on your account. Very good news about this coming. Full details forthcoming.
WordPress 5.6 Released this on December 8, 2020. Not a lot of changes to 5.6 (but adds a lot of ground work needed for WordPress 5.7 coming March 2021). If your install of WordPress auto updated to 5.6 you will more than likely see a lot of your plugins (and theme) needing a update, recommend you update IMMEDIATELY. Now if you have our Managed WordPress (included in EZWP also) we will be taking care of the updates for you. Now for full details on what the changes are in WordPress 5.6 please watch the Video from Adam from WPCrafter, a great rundown on the changes. Look below for the video:
Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year
