FastVirtual is pleased to announce the launch of a new range of hosting
plans, which are lower priced and include more features as standard. All
new hosting plans include more disk space, bandwidth and email mailboxes.
PHP, CGI and SSL support are now included with all web hosting plans,

shopping cart system is included with the new "Gold" plan and higher,
and MySQL database support has been included with all high-end packages.

'Hosting" section of their account control panel.
Individual Access to Email Settings
February 18, 2005
End users can now independently configure and manage their own email settings
via the new email account management system. Previously, email settings
could only be configured and managed via the account control panel, which
also provides access to all other account configuration options. By logging
in to the new email account management system using their email address
and mailbox password, end users can now configure all individual email
account settings, including passwords, vacation autoresponders and email
filtering options. Administrators still have access to these same settings,
both globally, and on a per-account basis, from the account control panel.
New Vacation Autoresponders
January 24, 2005
Use FastVirtual's vacation autoresponders to let senders know when you
are unable to respond to their messages. Simply select "Email & FTP Management"
from your account control panel, select "Manage Email Accounts" and click
the "Settings" button for the email account for which you want to configure
the vacation autoresponder. Enter your preferred message and save your
settings. Once enabled, your email will be delivered as normal, but senders
will immediately receive your preconfigured message.
Webby 4.0 Release
October 15, 2004
We are pleased to announce the release of Webby 4.0, FastVirtual's web-based
file editor and site management software. Webby 4.0 has an updated and
easy-to-use interface, plus several new features for managing your files
and folders. Webby now includes image modification (rotate and resize),
the ability to manage multiple files at once (move, copy, delete, etc.),
image optimization through NetMechanic, and HTML syntax checking. To access
Webby 4.0, simply select the "Webby File Manager" link from your account
Advanced Email Filtering
July 22, 2004
You can now configure advanced email filtering options for all FastVirtual
email accounts. Options include blocking based on blacklists (all 5 major
blacklists), smart spam detection, common pattern matching, blind carbon
copy (bcc) rejection and user-defined filters. You can specify email addresses
to always accept or reject, and keywords to search for in the subject,
header, body, etc. Filtered mail can either be returned to the sender,
delivered labeled as spam, deleted, or backed up to a filtered message
area. Also included is FastVirtual's 'Confirminator', which requires that
all senders confirm themselves (once only) before their mail is delivered.
This unique tool has the ability to remove 100% of automated spam messages.
