Goodbye, HostGator!

We would like to apologize to customers and visitors for the difficulties with accessing our websites in the past few days. We need to inform that we had issues with our hosting provider, it is well-known HostGator company, whose services we used for more than 8 years! But everything is changed and that's true about about our opinion on HostGator too.

Around one week ago we noticed that most of our sites stopped working. Everything was looking strange because some customers from the US were able to visit www.bopup.com and download installation packages with no any issues at the same time when we were having problems. Some third-party resources on the Web also told us that there were big troubles with accessing to the websites because most of them could be even pinged!

HostGator support team could not see the problem and did not help us, they only asked to change Name Server (NS) even some of our other websites already had those servers configured correctly. Anyway we decided to change our web-hosting provider to avoid any possible issues to our customers and new clients because that's all about the business. You will not believe but HostGator support is still working on the problem and keeping the case still opened! For 7 days!

Now we successfully migrated to a new provider by moving all websites and databases including our regional sites such as www.bopup.de, www.bopup.es, www.bopup.ru Only Italian version www.bopup.it does not still operate due to update of old Name Servers on registrar. Our new configuration works better and faster now.

We released Android app version 1.0.12

New update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is available, it is version 1.0.12. This release added a useful improvement that now shows a small notification icon within contact that indicates a receipt of new (unread) messages. Previous versions of the messenger application had no that indicator so new incoming messages could be only discovered on "Messages" tab that contains all received messages for current session. We strongly recommend to update the application to work with it with more ease and convenience.

Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer come with a few useful additions

New versions of the messenger and observer clients are available for download. These releases include some minor changes and additions.

Now Bopup Messenger shows incoming idle away messages with a small text so users can see "real" messages from recipients and automated idle aways.

Another important additions is a new menu item added to Messages called Mark all as read. Using this function users can stop all notifications on new and unread messages in a one click. It is useful when a user received too many messages and he knows that they all are not important. This menu item is grayed out if Bopup Observer client is running in Confirmation Mode enabled on the communication server.

Bopup IM software added support for IPv6 protocol

We are proud to announce that both the communication server and IM client software now support IPv6 protocol that is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol (IP). It is intended to replace current version IPv4. The IM server supports also IPv4 so the software can accept connections using different protocols at the same time from messenger clients.

Bopup Communication Server also added new option to Messaging Group profiles that allows to hide a list of assigned users to the group and to do not show them in user's Contact List. So the displayed group cannot be expanded.

Another improvement is related to sorting messages and file transfers shown in Pending, Sent and Deleted/Declined views under Message History in the console. Now the server uses DATETIME SQL data type instead of SMALLDATETIME type used previously that includes seconds within hour and minutes.
