Effective January 15, 2017 Apis Networks is now known as Hostineer. Over the following two weeks, we will continue the transition, including rebranding the control panel, apnscp into Launchpad. You will continue to receive communication via email@example.com in addition to firstname.lastname@example.org as we transition gradually.
Overall, the impact beyond cosmetic is expected to be minimal. You will be able to continue to use your existing “apisnetworks.com” hostnames, including cp.apisnetworks.com which is now aliased to cp.hostineer.com. Your nameserver settings will remain the same indefinitely (at least the next decade). You may use either ns1.apisnetworks.com and ns2.apisnetworks.com or ns1.hostineer.com and ns2.hostineer.com; both will work the same.
Our support Twitter handle has changed from @apisnetworks to @hostineer. @apisnetworks will be retained for historical purposes. All existing followers have transferred over without a hitch. Support email may be reached either through email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Billing will continue under “Apis Networks” for at least a month as we coordinate with our processors to make these changes. After the change has concluded, credit card statements will reflect “Hostineer” instead of “Apis Networks”.
Why the change?
The change was determined under two criteria, first I never liked this name. Apis Networks was decided upon by 17 year old me, which we can all attest to not having the greatest insight in our teens. Second, Apis Networks will become the exclusive developer of apnscp/Launchpad for end-users. An open beta will launch in April during which time the control panel will go public as an enhanced, secure platform + web site management interface for everyone that wants to license it as an alternative to cPanel.
I will continue to manage Hostineer and provide support, as well as develop Launchpad jointly for both Hostineer and Apis Networks. Hostineer will serve as a tightly integrated ecosystem for the panel/platform providing all existing features and introducing some new perks down the road.
