Copy.com 15GB of Free, Fair Storage for All

CopyBeyond the now standard 15GB of free storage, Copy users also can benefit from the Copy referral program and the “Fair Storage for All” initiative, Click to get yours now.

  • Copy Referral Program — In possibly the most rewarding referral program in cloud storage history, Copy users can earn 5GB of additional free storage for both themselves and the person they introduce to Copy for each referral, with no limit on the total capacity they can earn. The average Copy referrer has earned well over 60GB of free storage, with the largest referrers earning space in the 10s of TBs.
  • Copy “Fair Storage for All” Initiative — Instead of counting data in shared folders against all members’ individual storage quotas so everyone pays for the same data over and over, Copy allows users to “split the bill” and control which files count against their storage capacity. View the 40-second video on the Copy “Fair Storage for All” initiative at http://youtu.be/m36ZMdE-vro. Copy was created to meet the exceedingly high design demands of today’s online and mobile users, and to provide the advanced security and corporate features required for businesses. Additional highlights of the service include:
  • Multiple device compatibility — Copy works across Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux computers and offers mobile device support for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) and Android, with Windows Mobile coming soon.
  • Easy file sharing without limits — Copy allows users to upload and share files of any size, including 1080p videos and raw photographs, without size limitations often found in email attachments. These shared files and folders can be sent to anyone either publicly or privately and accessed from any location or device.
  • More security — Copy provides a secure alternative to other cloud storage services. Included data verification inspects data before Copy accepts it into the user’s cloud storage. File-level ownership is verified prior to transferring anything to other devices. Copy also allows users to share files privately using Copy’s built-in identify verification.
  • Company control — Copy extends its cloud storage and sharing benefits into corporate environments with user and group management and added controls for proprietary company data.

Migrating to Domain Technologie Control

Finally decided on a new hosting control panel. Was previously using ISPManager from ISPSystems but that was provided to me for free from my previous Hosting Provider . Since i am moving to a new provider and they don’t have free ISPManager i had to find a new one. After looking thought several Hosting Control Panels,   settled on GPLHost’s Domain Technologie Control.

I chose this because its easy to install and the directory structure and management logic are very easy and organized compared to some other control panels.

Other candidates I looked though and actually installed, some several times.

Some of them like GNUPanel are very good and looks nice. But i liked the ease of DTC more.

DTC - Admin Panel

And it is actively developed and used by GPLHost to provide their own hosting service. Below are some of the features it contains at the time of this post.

  • Real-time bandwidth monitor for all server on each user basis
  • Automatic ip update (dyndns-like feature)
  • Antivirus and anti-spam with spam quarantine (“spam” imap folder) for mail
  • Automated backup NS and MX between 2 or more control panels (with domain list exchange over HTTPS)
  • Unix type independency (can run on FreeBSD, redhat, debian, OS-X…)
  • Store-front integration with registration form and payment gateway option
  • Mailing lists with many options (including moderation, header customization, and HTML archives)
  • Package installer (like fantastico) to be able to install many apps (phpBB, osCommerce, Drupal, etc…) in few clicks
  • Full internationalization: translated to many languages (currently up to 11)
  • Management of all types of hosting: Shared, Dedicated or VPS
  • Full billing system, including customer invoicing and renewals, and company book keeping with multiple company support (currently only supporting one currency at a time)
  • Integrated support ticket system
  • Full server monitoring system, globally and per service and user IN REAL TIME

Everything looks good up-to now, so looks like i will be settling with this one.

Also to anyone else who maybe looking into installing DTC in thier server, one thing i noted when trying out DTC was it has configuration issues with 64bit version of debian lenny like SSH not working. But it works well on 32bit.
