Service updates

08 March 2017

Several months ago, we soft-launched V10, the latest version of Cbox. New with this version is a completely overhauled frontend. It's fully responsive on mobile devices, and smoother and even easier to use than the classic layout. Chat history, avatars and emoticons have been streamlined, and embedding has been simplified. If you don't have a V10 Cbox already, you can create one now.

We've also launched a few new features in the past few months:

  1. Web hook, which lets you receive copies of all messages sent to your Cbox.
  2. Moderated chat, which lets you manually accept messages and approve users.
  3. Country restriction, which lets you configure allowed/denied countries based on user IP.

Premium and Pro Cboxes can now display not just who's online, but who's currently typing! We hope this is something that will be useful for many of our customers — go ahead and enable it, and let us know what you think. Besides this new feature, we've also made private messaging possible between mods and regular users possible, and no longer just between mods.

We've introduced some enhancements to Cbox recently, including the ability to integrate with Facebook for user registrations. Cbox user ban strength has been improved and a new proxy ban option has been introduced for Pro customers.

This morning at 11:05 UTC, our upstream provider suffered a rare coincidence of power distribution failures, and as a consequence, three of our hosts shut down and went offline. At 13:00, power had been restored, and we were able to get the service back online for all affected customers 30 minutes thereafter. We do apologize for the extended duration of this outage.

24 March 2015

Recently we've made some minor changes to our product wording. The Cbox Multithreaded plan has been renamed to Cbox Pro, and the price has also been reduced by more than 30%. We have also renamed our threads feature to more directly reflect its purpose: threads are now channels. Your service is not affected except to the extent that it now offers even better value!

14 March 2015

We're pleased to announce that Cbox Premium now fully supports HTTPS! The embed code has been updated so that the switch to HTTPS happens automatically. If you had previously attempted to embed your Cbox on an SSL/TLS-secured site and found that the browser would not show it, then your new embed code will fix that problem.
