Welcome to nexus 3.0


It’s hard to believe.  Some say it would never be achieved.  They were almost right. But finally, (FINALLY!) the new HostNexus is live.  There are a few elements that need to be ported over from the old site and NexusPortal and that will be completed in due course but the meat and potatoes is in.

The new site is modern with a web 2.0 feel which is a direct reflection on the direction in which I’m taking the company.   This new site incorporates the content from NexusPortal so everything is on the domain. Please bow your heads in remembrance of NexusPortal, she served us well and will be remembered. But now – onto newer, bigger and better things!

HN Blog – I’m quite excited to be finally blogging at HostNexus.  This won’t be your average boring corporate blog that reads like a list of mundane press releases.  There is going to real CONTENT and topics that everyone at HN can relate to.  I’m back in the SEO game after a loooong break and I’m going to be taking (or trying to) HN back to the top of the SERPs in one of the most competitive niches in the engines with a whole new strategy.  And if I can do it in the “web hosting” niche, YOU can do it in your niches and dominate your rankings.  So watch that SERP for web hosting provider as that is one phrase I’ll be targeting. So I’ll be posting regularly on what I’m doing and the progress I’m making and hopefully some people can chime in with ideas and we can learn from each other.

Take a look around the new site, check out the new plans and new line of servers and do let me know if there are any errors or broken links.  Check out the new support system (well same system with integrated skin) and you’ll notice the forum has a matching skin too.  The index page of the ticket system pulls a feed from the Status category of this blog and if there are ever any issues we will be updating there so you can see if there’s an issue before you submit a ticket.

Also note Live Chat is back and it should be pretty much 24/7 as all techs will be on it.

Finally, please do subscribe to this blog and comment away.   I’ve had fun with plugins and it’s also DoFollow with CommentLuv.  Spammers will be executed of course!

    As I dutifully bow my head in remembrance of Nexus Portal, I take a brief moment to exclaim “well done indeed!”

    It’s great to have everything under one roof.

    New site looks excellent. I was expecting some downtime and was concerned about my myriads of readers not being able to find my blog! But it was sooooo smooth. Unnoticeable. Well done.

    Looks great, and I’m looking forward to reading future entries. Although I can’t get the “SEO STRATEGY SERIES: 1 – Introduction” to come up?

  8. Thanks Ian. Does the link not work:

  9. Ian, found some weird code in the post (I wrote it originally in Word and it weird Word stuff in there). Please see if it works now. Also plan on posting part 2 in that series today or maybe tomorrow as my workload today is ridiculous.

    Hey, guys…
    Nice work. I liked the old stuff just fine, but this new stuff is real pretty too. Now if I can figure out how to get that free upgrade, I’ll be real happy.

    G’day young Laurence. Love your bizzo makeover, she’s a ripper alright. A little abso-bloody-lute beauty mate!

    Plus – good to see you’ve pulled up your socks and finally got into the blogging. Fair crack of the whip though, I told to avago back in your ankle biting days.

  12. @Silviron – just email accounts, they’ll sort out.

    LOL @ Canny Granny – you crack me up SD. Didn’t know you had that blog too. :mrgreen:

    The new site looks sleek. I often need to access the Plask panel but never memorize the URL for the log in page. Why don’t you provide a button link to login the Plask system from the main web site. So all i need to remember is instead of some cryptic URL to get into Plesk system.

    Congratulations to Laurence & all team. Specially design is cool & simple.

  15. Thanks Ankur. :grin:

    Steven, it’s very simple to remember:

    Basically your domain on SSL on port 8443. I might put the old Plesk login script back but it was largely broken and only worked for a few servers.

    Been with you since day one and I like the new layout. Very refreshing.

    I’ll be switching plans but not sure if my domains will get messed up so I’ll post my questions in the forum.

    Well done Laurence, Mike and all HN support and techs.

    The new site looks nice, but I can no longer find the list of installed Windows components. Any chance that page will get resurrected?

  20. Thanks for the comments. :mrgreen:

    Brian, I’ll see what I can do. Totally forgot about that page!
