After months of hard work, we have finished one of the largest internal projects ever here at Servebolt. The new version of the control panel consists of over 700 commits, which most likely is a new record at Servebolt. Not a record we want to break anytime soon.
The project started with the goal of enabling our clients to pay with their credit card automatically, and ended with us changing the look and feel on the control panel in addition to lots of other improvements.
Annual and monthly plans
Another improvement we have implemented together with our new billing system is that we now offer annual and monthly plans, in addition to our quarterly plans. If you choose to pay annually we even give you one month for free.
Have a Bolt and want to convert it to a monthly plan, or maybe even go annual and get the discount? Just go in to your Bolt, and click change plan.
Buy additional storage and sites
With our new upgrade experience it is easy to adjust the add-ons to a Bolt, like disk space or sites. The pricing on these add-ons has been lowered, to reflect the automation benefits. We want our customers to gain from these improvements just as much as we do.
New Upgrade experience
The switch from manual billing to automated billing comes with a completely new upgrade experience. You can now upgrade at any time, and the upgrade will be valid from the millisecond you do the upgrade. This means that if you upgrade mid-term, you will at the time you upgrade only pay the difference between your old plan, and your new plan, for the rest of the period.
The new upgrade experience also enables you to buy additional storage and extra production sites. So from now on, if you need 5 GB of storage, you can buy a High Performance 4 GB plan with 1 additional GB, instead of having to upgrade to the High Performance 8 GB plan.
All this makes growing with Servebolt more cost effective for all our clients.
Pay with Credit Card, PayPal or Direct Debit
The day is finally here where all our clients can pay for their subscription with their preferred payment method. Credit Card and PayPal payment is available to all Servebolt clients, and Direct Debit is available to clients in the EU-zone and Sweden.
In our new billing portal you can add your preferred payment method, choose what payment method should be charged for each individual subscription, and download all past invoices generated by our new billing system.
To order, validate, issue and configure SSL correctly can be a pain. With Servebolt this process has always been easy, and it just got easier. If the domain you want an SSL certificate for is pointing to your Bolt everything is automated. Just place the order, and we fix the rest automatically.
We create the validation files on the server, we notify the certificate authority that they can validate the domain, we receive the certificate, we push it to the server and we activate it for the domain. All you do is place the order. Easy, right?
See the latest Servebolt articles on your account dashboard
We don’t write new articles every day, but every day we do it’s worth reading! That’s why we have added a feed of all the articles from Servebolt.com on the account dashboard so that also our existing clients can easily find them.
What’s new? Check the changelog
Some time ago we decided to keep a changelog of all updates to the control panel and parts of our hosting-stack. This chargelog has been publically available on Servebolt.com for almost a year, and now you can even see it on your account dashboard in the control panel. Keeping up with what’s new at Servebolt just got much easier!
