While were try to bring all latest and greatest images/templates to our VPS services, you might still sometimes find a slightly outdated versions of OS Templates installed. It’s rather easy to upgrade the system and this KB shows step by step how to upgrade Fedora 21 to Fedora 23 using new DNF upgrade plugins (a recommended way to upgrade by Fedora Project).
yum update -y && restart
yum install dnf dnf-plugin-system-upgrade -y
dnf system-upgrade download –releasever=23 -y
dnf system-upgrade reboot
Once the system is restarted and you get your ping back, login to your new and updated Fedora 23. Note that it might take about 5 minutes for this restart to complete.
It’s time to get to know new DNF package manager.
More details about upgrade on Fedora Project Wiki.

Yes! Our SmarterMail services fully support SSL / TLS based delivery from start to finish. Our primary SmarterMail server, our delivery (outbound) gateways, our backup MX gateways, our website mail delivery gateways all fully support encrypted / secured email delivery.
With that said however, there are exceptions and limitations. For example – a recipient’s mail server may not support secured connections for incoming mail and as a result our SmarterMail systems cannot establish a secured delivery. When our SmarterMail systems cannot establish an encryption session they will fall-back to standard delivery methods. Our SmarterMail systems will always attempt to establish an encrypted session to the receiving mail server first.
Our SmarterMail services also fully supports encrypted incoming email deliveries from 3rd party mail servers. Just as our SmarterMail servers attempt to establish secure connections to recipient servers, other mail servers also attempt to establish secured connections to us as well.
This is quickly becoming standardized and widely adopted, large service providers like Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, AOL and many others already support encrypted email delivery and many many smaller companies do as well!
You can quickly test a recipient’s mail server to see if they support encrypted mail delivery at http://checktls.com/perl/TestReceiver.pl

The Control Panel Module is a feature that allows our Windows hosting control panel to “control” your VPS at a more advanced level. For tasks such as adding and managing IIS websites, adding and managing FTP accounts, ODBC connections, file manager and permissions.
Without the Control Panel Module you may still run your website(s) off your VPS, however this requires that you setup IIS, configure it, setup all permissions, application settings, mappings etc. By purchasing the Control Panel Module we will install and configure IIS, the FTP service (FileZilla), and all the associated items such as .Net, PHP, Perl, Web Deploy, IIS Remote Management and all the other technologies and features that our control panel supports.
Most users who run websites on their VPS prefer this method of control as it is much easier to have our control panel do all the heavy lifting when it comes to creating a website and managing it.
Please note that this is not a managed service and can only be provisioned to newly created virtual servers. This is simply provided to make provisioning websites, FTP accounts and other tedious tasks easier. The customer is still responsible for maintaining their server and its services.
If you have any specific questions about this addon, please contact our sales team or chat with one of our sales team members!
