Discounts and Happy Easter from the team at GekkoFyre Networks!

From the team here at GekkoFyre Networks, we wish everyone a happy and safe Easter while hoping that you all get plenty of chocolate eggs to eat! I, Christopher (Phobos D’thorga), have sure been enjoying the break, where much playing of the new video game Anno 1800 has been had. Let us know what you have been up-to in our official Discord server! We’re a friendly bunch with only simple rules and as long as you do nothing too risqué or adult in nature, you’ll be fine.

But to celebrate the joyous occasion of Easter, we have a special deal in store for both new and existing customers! If you apply for a new product of any of the following:

Then you are eligible for a 25% discount if you use the coupon code, BR2SBN4K3Q, during the checkout process. If you encounter any issues and/or wish to discuss a question with us, then please open a ticket with our support agents.

Revamped Network Status page with more servers

Only a small update but we have revamped our Network Status instance with the newer servers that have become part of our repertoire as of late. This is also a notice that if you haven’t already done so yet, you should become a subscriber to any and possibly all of future network-related incidents here at GekkoFyre Networks, so you are kept up-to-date instead of left wondering why your website is having issues! Not that we often have infrastructure issues, that is *wink wink*.

But if you are interested in becoming a subscriber and receiving email alerts as such, just navigate to this page and scroll down to the bottom where upon you will find a Green button with an outline that is aptly titled, “Subscribe”. You then select the servers which interest/concern you and that is it! You will receive all future alerts at your designated email address up and until the point you ever decide to unsubscribe.

Zimbra Hosted Email; Freely Upgradeable VPS Plans; Newsletter

GekkoFyre Networks now offers Zimbra Hosted Email plans from our very own servers, thus ensuring that you’re getting the best possible service and quality! Zimbra is an enterprise-class email, calendar and collaboration solution built for the cloud, both public and private. With a redesigned browser-based interface which makes extensive use of AJAX, Zimbra offers the most innovative messaging experience with a plethora of features that make it one of the best groupware solutions available today. Some of the key features include:

  • Share Inbox mail folders, Address Book contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Briefcase folders and files amongst your work colleagues or even friends, using powerful collaboration features.
  • Communicate with other users via Zimbra Chat from right within the Web Client, and even amongst your team!
  • Optionally work offline with Zimbra Desktop or clients such as Microsoft Outlook using IMAP(S)/POP(S), and CalDAV.
  • Stay connected anywhere on any smartphone or other device with any of the aforementioned protocols.
  • Transform Zimbra into a customized “collaboration hub” by integrating external applications and web services — such as Salesforce and enterprise applications including Oracle and SAP.
  • Comes with a tightly integrated anti-spam, antivirus, and other filtering services.
  • And so much more!

We have chosen the OSS (open source software) edition because this allows us to offer our clients the best feature-rich mix in terms of value and available options. What you get is an excellent groupware mail client that is both web-based while providing connectivity options for going offline via the available Desktop and Mobile clients, so you have the best of both worlds.

At GekkoFyre Networks, we offer competitive industry rates for all of our products and services whilst at the same time, we provided a more personal, one-on-one customer experience. We can do this because we operate as and like a small business.

If you require migration assistance from a pre-existing email account over to our servers and henceforth a Zimbra account, please get in touch with our support department firstly before making any related account purchases. We need to work out with you what is and what might not be feasible in terms of a migration, as dependent on the type of service you are migrating away from. That said, we do offer a 28-day money back guarantee with no questions asked and this definitely applies to our Zimbra Hosted Email accounts.

Regarding other feature updates around our company, we are now offering the ability to freely upgrade your service plans if you are making use of a product or service that comes with customizable options, such as our VPS (virtual private server) lineup.

We are still more than happy to assist you with an upgrade/downgrade via a support ticket or even our official Discord server if need be.

Lastly, we now have an official newsletter you may signup towards without having to be a pre-existing client! You will receive all the latest updates without having to check this blog manually and we will be sure to only send out messages intermittently. We all know what it’s like to deal with spam! Plus it’s part of our core mission policy to fight spam where possible.

The form can be found within the navigation bar on this blog to the top-right or, in the case of just this article only, simply below for one-off convenience.

Almost breaking even; gaming services updates; hosted email

That is indeed correct, we are 50% of the way towards breaking even each month on our expenses with the amount of income we are receiving at current, all thanks to the wonderful and amazing clients we’re starting to take on. We owe our thanks to you! ^,==,^

Among some of the newer services coming up on offer, you’ll soon be able to purchase hosted email at competitive industry rates through us! For this task we are currently thinking about employing the use of the Zimbra Collaboration Suite but if you have your own suggestion then please, by all means let us know. Through this, we are trying to maintain Gmail interoperability, especially for those of you that make use of email on G Suite (i.e. Google Suite by Google Cloud).

We should also be able to start proffering XenoPanel services within approximately three weeks from the time of writing, given how things are currently proceeding. You may see from the screenshots below just how awesome it is shaping up to be!

We can only apologize for the long, anticipated wait of these gaming services and promise that it will be well worth it! There is an older post from some weeks back which details a few of the games that we will be offering at first as well, for those that are interested in some further reading.
