At the end of 2020 we have been busy launching a new version of Obambu, which had not been updated since 2016! On this occasion, we also launched the Obambu Blog, in order to keep in touch, and keep you updated about the latest news from the hosting and cloud industry.
Here is a small overview of what’s new:
- A new website
We have updated the Obambu website with a new logo and a new llok in order to facilitate access to our plans and provide more information about them.
- A new customer area
The customer area had also not been changed for a few years now. So we redesigned both the order form and the product management area to update it and allow you to manage your products more easily.
- New help documentation
We have launched Obambu Help (and its equivalent Obambu Aide in French) which is a knowledge base about our services. It will continue to be completed in order to provide the most exhaustive documentation possible, allowing you to find the answer to all your technical questions in just a few clicks.
- New web hosting plans
The hosting plans are evolving, and the range is now divided between the Solo plans, which allow to host one website, and the Multisite plans, which allow, as its name indicates, to host several websites. It is still as simple as ever to switch from one plan to another, directly and instantly from the customer area.
- New Cloud SSD hosting plans
One of the main new features of this new version is the launch of Cloud SSD plans. This is the first time that Obambu launches plans with SSD storage, which is much faster than traditional HDD storage. The resources of these plans, which offer unparalleled isolation and performance, have also been increased, both for RAM and CPU.
- A new reseller hosting plan
Our reseller hosting plan is unique on the market. It is the first reseller plan on the market that allows you to pay only for what you use. A predefined number of cPanel accounts and disk space is provided, and beyond that, the customer is charged only for additional accounts and disk space used. With this innovative plan, the customer only pays for what he needs, without paying for a higher plan with unnecessary resources.
- New email plans
For the first time, we are launching plans only for professional email hosting. So those who don’t need a website but only to have professional email addresses (and avoid Gmail, Hotmail and other) will be able to enjoy a complete plan at the best price.
- New domain name extensions
We have updated the list of extensions we offer, adding for example .io or .ru. And as before, we continue with the transparency of the renewal price: no bad news after the first year, the renewal price remains at the purchase price.
- New VPS plans
Two ranges of VPS servers are now offered: Smart servers with OS LXC virtualization (which we already offered) and the new Power servers with KVM kernel virtualization. Thanks to the launch of this last range of VPS plans, our customers can now take advantage of Windows Server, as well as the possibility to install Docker, VirtualBox…
We hope that you will enjoy our new plans and the new customer area, and remain open to any comments or suggestions. Finally, we also take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their continued trust.
