Designed in-house by our own development team and unique to Umbrella Host, the Xtend Control Panel is one of the most advanced and fully featured web hosting control panels available. Today we are pleased to announce that we have made a number of updates to Xtend to make it even more powerful and easier to use.
As well as an updated look and feel you may be interested to know that every new feature we have added to Xtend was a suggestion from one of our customers. Sending Umbrella Host a Review or feedback is easy, simply fill in the Review forms located in the Umbrella Host Customer Control Panel.
Backup and Restore Update
We know that one of the most popular features in Xtend is the backup and restore facility, we have updated this so that you can now drill down and backup specific folders or your whole website in one go The restore feature has been moved so it is on the same page as the backup feature.
Autoresponders are another popular feature and we know that a lot of people use these when they go on holiday. You can now disable and enable autoreponders rather than having to delete your existing one and adding a new one.
You can now forward one email address to up to 10 other addresses using the email forwarding feature.
We have made two major updates to our MySQL Database feature, the first is that you can now backup and restore any of your MySQL Databases from the database management page.
The second update is aimed at advanced MySQL Database users. As standard when a database is created we also create a user who has permission to access that database. We are continuing to do this, however you can now add additional users as well and grant these users specific permissions.
Faster Access to eXtend
Accessing Xtend is now even easier! We have added a “quick access” feature from the front page of the Umbrella Host Customer Control Panel. To Login to Xtend simply click here and select the Xtend Control Panel you would like to login to from the drop down list.
When accessing the Umbrella Host Customer Control Panel you can now also select “Remember Me”, so that you don’t have to login each time you return to our Control Panel.
