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

Amazing huh?

This is completely free, with just place a small UN-intrusive banner on your sites. This service is great for bloggers, forum owners, and more. This service is here for everyone to use and have fun with.

Services Restored

Earlier today one of our providers for web hosting, email services, and more had a major outage. They were unable to resolve the issue in a timely matter so we have change our provider for these services to an idustry leader in this area.

Because of this, a lot of services are coming back online now, if you are not seeing the sites properly please clear your browsers cache and restart it. That should resolve any issues. Again we are so sorry about this outage, we were just as outraged by this as everyone else!

Migration of Site Data

Zetamex is releasing a notice that tomorrow(June 29th, 2013) the website will be unable to accept orders or payments. This is due to site data migration to our new provider, we do not want loss of payments or orders to occur, so they will be temporally unavailable during this migration, and the migration will only take 12-24hours.

The reason for this migration is to promote better service, and keep our prices right where they are. We don’t want to change our prices, but the influx in cost of servers and networking equipment, it is getting harder to manage. For this reason we are moving sites to dedicated web hosting providers.

Sites that will be effected:

  • Zadaroo.com
  • Zetamex.com
  • Billing.Zetamex.com
  • Support.Zetamex.com
  • Metajabber.com
  • Metajabber.pw
  • Grid-Press.com

Grids, Simulators, and other opensim products will remain unaffected by this migration.

Thank you for your understanding and coroperation,
Zetamex Staff

Notes

  • Thanks
    • I would like to start out by thanking everyone in the opensimulator community for helping make Zetamex one of the largest and most trusted opensim hosts out there.
  • Biting Off More Than We Can Chew?
    • Sometimes it looks like we may be biting off more than we can chew, and sometimes that is true. We are begining to look at expanding our business, and look for opertunities to increase our ability to expand out more.
    • What does this mean? Well in simple there may be some changes up and coming to Zetamex here in the very near future, and possibly some new faces and people behind the scenes. No words of who and what changes, just rest assured we are not going anywhere but up from there.
