On January 18th, we will mark the 10th anniversary of the service. I just wanted to say thanks to all of our loyal subscribers. Several have been with us since the first month back in 2010.
As of this afternoon, we just finished migrating to a new virtual server running in the Microsoft Azure cloud. If anyone has any issues with their Run Basic server, please let us know.

1&1 will migrate all Run Basic Hosting VPS containers to new hardware late this evening. The service will be down during this time for about 4-8 hours. I apologize for the inconvenience, but this is not an optional migration for us. The good news is that, by tomorrow, we'll be running on faster hardware.

We will be changing our credit card processing soon. This means that all subscribers will have to manually select a package again. Each subscriber will receive an email 30 days before renewal. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Pricing and FAQ pages were updated to show that the Dedicated Business 1 package supports running external programs. RB supports this with the SHELL$ function, but it is not allowed in the shared hosting environment. Thanks to the potential subscriber who asked about this and made me realize that it wasn’t explicitely stated anywhere.
