New server joins the AGL Host network

In our quest for world domination, we are very pleased to announce that our new server (Magneto) arrived at the data centre today and has been successfully installed.

Magneto will soon be running additional shared cPanel hosting. Magneto will be running under the alias of skynet. Fitted with two large 1TB HDD’s this new box will soon be ready to power some of your services.

To help spread the load, we will be moving several clients from Marvin server onto this new box. Marvin is starting to run out of HDD space, so this increase will help give everyone more room to grow.

Magneto is currently having cPanel installed on the system as we speak. Watch this space for updates!

Welcoming a new server to the AGL Host network.

Over the next few weeks we will be adding a new server to the AGL Host family. At the moment our new box is currently sitting in our office while we wait for the PSU to be shipped from Germany.

The new server will act as a shared Linux cPanel server. Once our PSU arrives, we will be installing the operating system then shipping the box up to the datacentre. The new server will provide plenty of storage space for new services – with 2x 1TB Samsung HDD’s.

Watch this space for updates.
