Bandwidth Quota now available on the Usage page
The Usage page now shows your Bandwidth Quota for each region where you have servers, as well as the percentage consumed during the current billing cycle.
View Usage by current and previous billing cycle
You can now filter the bandwidth usage of servers and projects by the current and previous billing cycles, giving you the ability to see how your bandwidth consumption changes over time.
IPv6 is now enabled by default
As the internet gradually moves to IPv6, all new deployments and reinstalls now include an IPv6 address.
This means you no longer have to request an IPv6 address, and your servers will now include a /64 address by default.
Also, you will see the IPv6 address showing up on the device page and the API for currently deployed servers. To make the new IP work with your server, you can set it manually on the device or trigger a reinstall.
London is now available for instant deployments
We are incredibly excited to welcome London to Maxihost's Edge Network. London is our first region in Europe and one of our most anticipated and requested regions.
You can get a server in the region running in under 10 minutes starting today. We are starting with availability for the c2.small.x86 server, but have built enough spare capacity to support custom deployments too.

Flatcar and RedHat Enterprise Linux now available
Use Flatcar to deploy container workloads and RHEL for that stable OS enterprises love all in under 10 minutes. Both Operating Systems are available for deployment on all available servers through the dashboard and API.
Search by hostname and IP address
Searching servers across your different projects is now easier. On top of searching by device label, you can also find devices by their hostname or an assigned IP address.
The dashboard now remembers your last selected project
After logging in or switching to a different team, the dashboard will now send you to your last selected project instead of the Projects page.
Filter servers by region
Server filtering allows you to select servers that match certain criteria. You can set a filter that will show all available servers that are located in a region, leaving out all of the other ones.
This is especially useful for projects with many servers so you can more easily find and manage your bare metal servers around the world.
More visibility into your invoices
You can now see detailed information about your invoices.
The detailed invoice in the dashboard lists all line items and a description for each one. In addition, line items for Servers expand, allowing you to see costs associated with each bare metal instance in a project.
Read more in the documentation.
Spot servers now available on the new Maxihost Experience
Windows and Github Identity Providers now available
In addition to Google, we have added two more identity providers for you and your team to log into and sign up to Maxihost — Microsoft and Github.
If you are already using Google or email to log in, selecting a different identity provider will work without any additional setup needed.
Log in to the dashboard.
NIC information now available on the dashboard and API
More easily manage credits cards
It is now possible to add a new card, remove one that is no longer in use, and select which of your cards should be the default one without going to a different page.
You can manage cards by going to Settings & Members -> Billing on your Maxihost dashboard.
Billing page now shows if you have Credits
Filter Server and Project Usage by date
You now have the ability to select a start and end date to filter Servers and Project Usage, allowing for a better understanding of your usage.
Check out the documentation to understand how Bandwidth Usage is calculated.
See when an API Token was last used
You can now see when an API token has been last used by going to Team Settings → API Keys.
New additional bandwidth pricing
Instead of buying pre-defined additional bandwidth packages, you can now add more bandwidth to your projects in increments of 10TB, reducing costs by up to 50%.
The new pricing is available at the Network pricing page →
Bandwidth Pooling now available for servers in the same region and project
We are excited to announce that for customers in the new Maxihost experience, bandwidth for servers in the same region and project are now automatically pooled.
That means you no longer have to monitor your bandwidth consumption for each server individually, and can now share unused bandwidth between servers that are located in the same region and project.
Integrate faster with the new API Docs
New design: The new layout makes it easier to find the endpoints and their available parameters.
More language options: From Curl to Go and everything in between, there is an example for the programming language of your choice.
Requests and response logs: Test your requests right from the website and quickly see the response logs. The website now stores and shows you requests you have made using your API key, including their responses.
Share a request: Quickly grab a URL to share with your team. Shared request URLs take you straight to the request log.
Improvements to v2 docs: For customers on the New Experience, we have made documentation improvements across the board. Expect further improvements in the next few weeks as we add better docs for filtering, sorting, and side-loading, powerful aspects of the new API.
