MySQL Space Is Now Un-Metered!
The previous MySQL space limit of 50MB has been removed! Now your MySQL space usage is un-metered. Whilst there will still be query quotas to ensure service remains stable and an individual database user does overuse MySQL, it does mean that you no longer need to worry about reaching the fixed 50 MB space used limit. This will be a huge benefit to websites that primarily use MySQL to store data such as forums and blogs.
New Cron Jobs Manager
You can now easily setup Cron Jobs in your VistaPanel!
A Cron Job is a scheduled request that loads a page or script of your choosing over and over again at a frequency you specify. This is useful for sites that need to regularly update some settings or get data on a regular basis automatically.
We have created you a simple but powerful interface in your panel where you choose the domain name you want to run a script on, then choose the script file name you want to run, then finally choose how often you want this script to be automatically requested each time.
New Custom Error Page Manager
We have created a new custom error page manager which is now available to use in your VistaPanel.
This interface allows you to choose which URL/page is shown when a error occurs on your site, the most common custom error page to setup is the 404 not found page. Setting up a 404 not found page means that if a visitor to your site clicks a invalid or misspelled link, they are redirected to a customized page you choose rather than a default 404 error page.
403, 500 and 404 error documents can be configured easily using this great new feature.
New PHP Config Manager

Inside the PHP Config manager in your VistaPanel you can enable or disable PHP Display Errors Mode, Magic Quotes, Magic Quotes GPC, MB String Input and choose which PHP Timezone you want your scripts to run in.
Options are change by simply clicking a tic box and the new settings take effect instantly.
New SPF Records Manager (Sender Policy Framework)
To allow you to setup email on your own domain names in the most professional way possible, we have created a SPF records manager in your VistaPanel. Email providers such as Google will ask you to set SPF records on your domain names.
An SPF record is a type of Domain Name Service (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are permitted to send email on behalf of your domain.
The purpose of an SPF record is to prevent spammers from sending messages with forged From addresses at your domain. Recipients can refer to the SPF record to determine whether a message purporting to be from your domain comes from an authorized mail server.
For example, suppose that your domain example.com uses Gmail. You create an SPF record that identifies the Google Apps mail servers as the authorized mail servers for your domain. When a recipient's mail server receives a message from email@example.com, it can check the SPF record for example.com to determine whether it is a valid message. If the message comes from a server other than the Google Apps mail servers listed in the SPF record, the recipient's mail server can reject it as spam.
If your domain does not have an SPF record, some recipient domains may reject messages from your users because they cannot validate that the messages come from an authorized mail server.
