Windows Server Updates - August 2019

14 August 2019, in Shared Hosting, Cloud Servers, Dedicated Servers, Colocation Services

We will be carrying out Windows Updates to our Windows Shared Hosting Servers, Cloud Servers, Managed Dedicated Servers and Hyper-V Hardware Nodes during the times set out below.

Start of work - At Risk period:
Start Date: 15th August 2019

End of work - At Risk period:
Risk End Date: 17th August 2019

Times work will be carried out:
Start Time: 05:00
End Time: 8:30

Service Impact:
Servers and Hardware Nodes will need to be rebooted after updates are applied effecting all services.

Reason:
Microsoft releases Windows updates and patches on the second Tuesday of each month. These updates fix security vulnerabilities, performance and other issues.

This months update is particularly important as there is a zero day wormable exploit to the Remote Desktop Services (RDP). This vulnerability is pre-authentication and requires no user interaction! If you have your own server you should run windows updates immediately.



Changes to VAT - 1st July 2019

22 June 2019, in Domain Registration, Shared Hosting, Cloud Servers, Dedicated Servers, Colocation Services

New rules to simply VAT within the EU came into force in January 2019.

Under the new rules we no-longer need to charge VAT at the rate set in the customers own EU Country and instead charge VAT at the UK rate of 20%.

As of the 1st July Web Wiz Ltd. will be deregistered from the EU VAT scheme and for customers presently paying VAT, the VAT rate on payments to Web Wiz will change to 20%.

The UK has one of the lower rates for VAT, so for many of our EU customers the changes are good news as it will mean lower payments.

Please note; For our UK customers, VAT registered Business in the EU, and customers outside of the EU there will be no change.
