function to run on a regular basis for their site. This
feature, which is still in a beta version, can be found
under "setup options". Also in the setup
options area, an automated installer for PowerWebBuilder has been added. This feature allows you to add the free
version of the web site editing program to your account
without technical assistance. This free version
software allows you to create 3 web pages without advanced
web design expertise. And at the request of
various customers, a convenient logout button has
been added to the top corner of the control panel.
Remember, we are always attempting to make improvements
to our services, and we welcome all of our customers'

A couple of exciting announcements this month!
The Webii online control panel has been redesigned to
provide a more convenient look and feel. Make a visit
to your account's control panel today to notice clearly
defined navigation options that have been reorganized for
quick access on every page. All the same features are
still available to you, but certain options have
been renamed ("WWW Setup" is now "Setup Options"). Our
developers have even more plans to improve the organization
of the control panel based on customer feedback and
requests, so stay tuned for more improvements in the future.
Introducing the launch of Power Web Builder, a web-based,
user-friendly web page editor from the respected E-commerce
software company Mercantec. The 3-page version of
Power Web Builder is available to all hosting customers as a
free bonus feature. This program allows a user with
little or no HTML knowledge to create a template-based web
site in a matter of minutes, all from the convenience of a
browser. Just point, click, and drag items on the page
layout to create your new site and maintain the pages in the
same interface as needed. You can install this new feature
through the Setup Options in your control panel.
Due to popular demand and in recognition of our
many loyal customers, we have increased the Web Mail disk
space limit for Pro and higher plans. The new limit for Web
Mail email account access is 20MB, a 10MB increase!
For email usage outside of the Web Mail program (such as in
Outlook) there is no imposed limit. For more detailed
instructions on using your Web Mail feature, visit our FAQ here.
In an effort to offer improved services for
newly migrated customers, Webii has increased disk space
allocations for many of the adopted "AppSite Hosting" plans.
If you are a customer who holds an account that was migrated
from AppSite Hosting/Dellhost, you may see your current disk
space allocations by logging into your Control Panel.
Webii welcomes its recently acquired
customers from AppSite Hosting/Dellhost! Migration to a new
service provider can be rough, and Webii strives to
accommodate each customer's web hosting needs to the best of
our abilities. Learn more about this acquisition in the press room.

upgraded network connectivity. This included
upgrade to 2 redundant Cisco 12000 series routers and 2

updates as well as multi-homed, redundant connectivity to
global upstream providers is all in an effort to achieve
100% network uptime for our customer base.

feature. This new control panel feature is located in your
"www setup" area and allows you to easily create backups of

has completed its initial analysis of the spam email
filtering features. This feature is now available for
all web hosting customer to use. To have this tool
enabled in your Webii Control Panel, simply email technical support to request it.
Webii technical support and development is currently undergoing beta testing of spam email filtering
tools. Several customers have volunteered to
participate in the testing process, to get a feel for the
features of the customization interface and report on the
system's effectiveness. This beta testing period will
help us to determine the possibility of implementing such a
feature into our web hosting plans in the near future.

Vision, [and] Tenacity". Webii is flattered to
receive this recognition for the 2nd year in a row.
