Default Mailbox Storage Size Has Been Increased From 1GB to 25GB

We are pleased to announce that the default mailbox size for our hosting plans with email has been increased, significantly. The previous default size of 1GB email storage per mailbox is now 25GB per mailbox!

There is nothing that you will need to do or request for this change to happen. THIS CHANGE HAS BEEN DEPLOYED AUTOMATICALLY to all existing hosting accounts with email. Any new domains you add will also have this new quota associated with their mailboxes going forward.

Thanks to our upstream provider Rackspace for making this increase possible.

Residual outages on Rackspace Cloud

Over the past two days, Rackspace, our upstream provider for cloud hosting, has been experiencing prolonged outages with cloud hosting. This has impacted our ability to provide solid uptime over these days.

You can follow progress at their blog: https://status.rackspace.com/index/viewincidents?group=22&start=1445400000

While some Laughing Squid customers may not be impacted by this, some accounts will continue to experience intermittent issues with Rackspace’s cloud hosting. We apologize for the downtime and ask for your patience as Rackspace continues to troubleshoot their problem.
