Welcome to the new ocPortal.com!We've rebuilt our website from the ground up (using the new ocPortal 3) to include a much greater community feel, as requested by our customers. We've transferred all our corporate stuff to our new sister website, ocProducts.com, and we've generally refocused our efforts here around our core community-software roots.
I'm also able to announce today that we've got a new offering for all ocPortal users - hosting on our own servers! Hosting is completely free, and means you no longer need your own conventional hosting account to use ocPortal. This innovative system allows you to set up your website with a few clicks and fully manage it through the ocPortal interface, and from ocPortal.com. Coupled with ocPortal version 3's vast improvements, this makes an unbeatable combination of ease-of-use and power, for no cost to you.
The process of getting ocPortal is now simpler than ever. Instead of going through a myriad of links, you are now guided by the new 'Start Construction' wizard, which lays out all your options and helps you 'lay your foundations' in record time. The wizard will guide you towards self-hosting or ocProducts-hosting, depending on your choices.
Our hosting service is currently in beta testing, so please report any problems you experience to us and we'll get them fixed quickly. As the service is brand new we can't guarantee the quality of service until things stabilise and we know the demand, so please continue to set up more important websites on your own third-party accounts.
ocPortal 3The final release of ocPortal 3 is expected tomorrow (2nd July), so stay tuned!
If you'd like to try out ocPortal 3 you can do so right now though! The demo is waiting for you, and you can also set up a hosted account in a few clicks.
