LuxSci’s State-of-the-Art Data Center

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Dedicated ServersLuxSci is a small and efficiently run company that is focused on and specializes in premium email services.  While we do not have “our own” data centers like some of the “big boys”; we utilize the services of one of the most respected and reliable managed server providers around — Rackspace.  We have been with Rackspace for 13 years. Prior to that we tried out a few of the cheaper providers and found that the support and/or the quality of the hardware and network was not up to our standards.  Rackspace is like an extension of our IT department, helping us to provide the most reliable and redundant services available.

One of our long time clients has remarked that we have a “formula for success” that we shouldn’t change.  We attribute this to the combination of our software, our people, and our infrastructure. In this article, we’ll discuss how LuxSci utilizes Rackspace and how our software and support solutions are complemented and enhanced by Rackspace’s reliability, security, and support.

Web hosting accounts now have more high-quality bandwidth!

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Through a special deal with our premium server provider, RackSpace, LuxSci is now able to offer all new web hosting accounts 200 GB/month of high quality bandwidth for web and FTP usage, instead of the 10 GB/month previously included, at no additional cost!

How to take advantage of this? Simply order any account that includes web hosting and you will receive 200GB/month of bandwidth.

What about existing customers? Existing web hosting customers interested in taking advantage of this new bandwidth offer can contact LuxSci Sales.  LuxSci will review your account and update it to take advantage of any new pricing or offers for which you may be eligible.  Monthly accounts are eligible for contract changes starting at the beginning of the next month; yearly accounts at the beginning of their next year’s term.

A New Way to Measure Disk Usage Starting June 1st

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Starting June 1st, 2009, LuxSci will change the way that it determines monthly disk space usage.  Going forward, an account’s monthly disk space usage will be its “peak disk space usage” — i.e. the maximum disk space used during the month.

If an account’s peak usage exceeds its purchased disk space limit, the account will automatically use “supplemental disk space” to make up the difference with no noticeable change for users.  Supplemental disk space is a convenience that costs 150% of what the same disk space would cost if planned for and purchased ahead of time.

Account Administration Updates

Sunday, May 1st, 2005

LuxSci has made several enhancements to its account administration tools. These include:

  • Account administrators can now view and modify their users’ General WebMail Preferences in their user management pages.
  • The monthly account bandwidth usage report available to web hosting clients in the Reports page now shows the monthly relative contribution of FTP bandwidth and HTTP bandwidth to the overall bandwidth usage.
  • We have added a new section to accounts’ billing information page. For accounts who have opted into automatic credit card payments, this section shows you what billing information was used, who opted into these payments, and when. It also allows you to update the email address and phone number associated with these automated payments and to terminate these payments.
  • WebMail Session Timeouts: Up to now, WebMail sessions have had a 2 hour timeout. I.e. if you are idle for 2 hours or more, you need to re-login before performing a new action. Now, in their advanced account administration page, account administrators can change this timeout to be anywhere from 5 minutes to 8 hours. Users can also configure their own personal WebMail session timeouts in their General WebMail Preferences; this personal timeout will override the account-wide one. However, account administrators can force these personal timeouts to be equal or less than their global timeout if security policies require it.
