  • Setting max values for resources directly in Plan Wizard.
  • Enhanced domain management: Introduced new Hosting Alias and Mail Service Alias resources as a replacement to the deprecated Domain Alias resource. It makes possible to assign a domain to be either a hosting domain alias to another domain with the "Hosting" resource turned on, or a mail domain alias to a domain with "Mail Service" enabled, or both. Besides, it's possible now to register via domain registrars those domains which are to be used as domain aliases.

    • Some resources (like SSL, FrontPage, Throttle, Ruby On Rails, etc.) can be enabled or disabled for selected logical server groups despite their availability on physical boxes. These resources are called resources with prerequisites

  • Added cron to correct expiration dates by requesting domains' status on a registrar
