New Grid-Press & MetaJabber

The new Grid-Press has been launched, this time you can have your already existing blogs automatically reblogged into the feed. The new Grid-Press is designed to help grids, hosting companies, and more advertise themselves more actively. We will log ourselves directly into your feed, then we will let our system just pull that feed.

The feeds that are reblogged, we refer all that traffic back to you for them to read the full articles. Grid-Press is now more of your opensim news paper, redirecting you to the articles you are interested. We are currently in testing phases, soon we will be adding the ability to sort, featured, and more with blogs that are imported. We hope to see you all at the new and improved Grid-Press.com

Zetamex is proud to announce that we have brought back free region hosting and even added free CPanel hosting. This means you can get real hosting from us completely free, or at least in turn for helping us create a new community at MetaJabber.com and we look forward to meeting you there. All zetamex services that include community support will be using MetaJabber, to encourage the growth of a central forum.

Updated

Everything is now back online, free and paid clients. Just note we are going through and clearing up our database here in the next few days and will be contacting free region owners as well as clients who are past due trying to get all our records sorted out as we are redoing our entire back end. We did the front end, now we are cleaning up the back end, it is really cluttered back here.

See all of you really soon, and watch out for your ZetaPanel login emails this weekend!

Update Progress

I would like to inform everyone that all PAID clients are back online, free regions are now in progress. We wanted to get paid clients back online as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience, here is the updates that have been applied:

OSGrid Specific Clients:
  • Upgraded to latest release of OSgrid client
All Clients:
  • ZetaPanel preparations made in the code

Updates & ZetaPanel Installations

Zetamex is having a brief service interruption that effects all simulator and standalone clients! Simulators and standalones should be expected to be back online within the next 3-5 hours. We apologize, but to roll out the new version of ZetaPanel to ALL clients this is required for us to creating this interruption in service.

Again, my apologizes for this small blurp of downtime, however we need to get this pushed out and the best way to do it is this way.

Thank You,
Zetamex Staff

ZetaWorlds Coming Soon…!

We are happy to drop a secret about our up and coming project called ZetaWorlds, which is a new service that we will be offering that is a hybrid between Kitely like world and your standard grid. The project was thought up from hearing and seeing a lot of feedback from experiences of how people use OpenSimulator and we want to migrate ourselves into the new world of how you will use OpenSimulator.

Now before you ask, no regions will not be cloud based. The entire system will be dedicated server based, providing us with the ability to offer affordable solutions, however we will be offering the ability to order Cloud Time, which will move you into the cloud for a set price per-day where your region(s) will run in a cloud for a party, event, etc. The rest of the time, your region will be online 24/7 unless you choose to shut it down from your control panel.
This world will be HyperGrid enabled, and will have currency enabled. There will be a world map, but not all regions will show up on the world map. We will be offering private worlds, where your assets and users are completely isolated from the rest of the grid and only accessible via the HyperGrid that is completely configurable. Offering truly white label services, what people should to come to expect from Zetamex.
The Panel will be a modified version ZetaPanel, that will offer OAR only imports and exports. IARs will be disabled for security reasons, and the exporting of OARs will be filtered based on permission functions. This solution will allow people to experience the best of both worlds, and have a virtual world service that incorporates what we know and love about grids, while also offering the ability to hide everything.
Pricing hasn’t been fully discussed yet, however we are expecting prices to start at only $15usd/month
