Today I can officially announce our support for the latest Ubuntu distro (8.04). This will provide our customers with a platform to develop applications on a platform with the latest and greatest versions of many commonly used apps like php, apache, mysql etc.
You can sign up for Ubuntu 8.04 based virtual private servers over on our vps site as of now @ http://www.blacknightvps.com
There’s also 1 additional new feature I’d like to announce to on our platform that previously wasn’t available and caused a lot of stress. You can change your VPS hostname via our CCP now. This should help people who previously had mail issues because the FQDN of the VPS wasn’t mentioned in the MX records for the domains hosted on it.
