Linux Server4 - Hardware upgrade (scheduled downtime)
Posted by BCS Staff on 20 August 2016 06:25 PM

Update: 11.45pm:  The HD cloning and move went quicker than planned, and the server is now back up and operational.  We're still having a few wee teething problems with the server load which is causing a few sites to load sluggishly, but we're working on resolving these asap.


Sorry for the short notice, but at 10pm tonight (UK time) we will be performing some essential hardware upgrades on Linux Server4.  

We are swapping over to newer faster (and bigger) Hard Drives (cloning the data from the old drives) and then moving these drives into a new chasis, with a significantly upgraded processor.

We apologise in advance for the downtime (estimated to be approx 3-4 hours) while this work is being carried out.

This upgrade is part of our continuous upgrade programme, ensuring customers always get the very best from hosting with us. Further improvements across our server range will be announced soon.

If you have any questions regarding this upgrade, please log a support ticket and our Tech team will assist you.

Server Wide Complimentary Upgrades
Posted by BCS Staff on 04 November 2015 04:24 PM

As part of our on-going commitments to remain competitive within the Domains and Hosting industry, we'll be rolling out complimentary server upgrades to all of our hosting clients. As part of the server wide upgrades, we'll be upgrading all three of our existing hosting accounts:

  • Standard
  • High Usage
  • Professional

We'll be rebranding the "High Usage" account as a "Business" account and we'll also be introducing a new "Plus" account, which will aim to bridge the gap between the Standard and Business Accounts. So the new accounts will appear as:

  • Standard
  • Plus
  • Business
  • Professional


We've just started the roll-out process and you'll soon notice a change within your control panel, with regards to quotas and allowances.

We'll release full details and breakdowns within the coming weeks, once our roll-out process is complete.


In the mean time, if you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to get in touch, by posting a support ticket at


Best Wishes,

The BCS Team

New: LiveDrive for Android
Posted by BCS Staff on 22 June 2015 01:28 PM

We are happy to announce that LiveDrive will be releasing a new version of the Livedrive Android app. They have spent the past nine months rewriting the app from the ground up, making it easier to use, faster, and better looking. The app has now been submitted to the Google Play store and will be available to download shortly.

The app now matches the look of the new iOS app and includes mobile backup. This will make sure that you never lose your photos or videos, even if you lose your tablet or smart phone. Mobile backup however, is only available to Briefcase and Pro Suite users*.

If you have already downloaded the app, it will automatically update through wifi once the app goes live (depending on your phone settings). If you have not yet downloaded the app, you can download it from the same place in the app store, once the new app is released:

*To find out more about upgrading your LiveDrive account, or for a free trial of LiveDrive Backup, drop us an email on, or call 0141 585 6363 today!


Best Regards,
