Herzlich willkommen bei UsenetBucket und Bezahlen mit Giropay

Posted on 31-03-2014 13:49:05 by Esmée de Reijke

We are now serving our website in German.

Since the release of our new website we've had multiple requests for language additions. One of the most requested language was German. Since we listen to what our customers have to say, we've took the time to translate and integrate the German language into our website and e-mail system.

So for all German speaking people:

Let us remind you, you can always change your default language in your Control Panel. Click additional options in your personal tab.

To celebrate this, we also introduce payments through Giropay. From now on, you can pay your Buckets with Giropay!

Got any other language or payment method you'd like to see in the website? Tell us in the comments or apply for our UBCAP!

Have a lovely day,

Esmée de Reijke

We have a huge surprise for you!

Posted on 11-03-2014 13:00:00 by Cecilia Johansson

In the last few months we have been working, in our own Area-51, on a complete new website and a complete re-brand and redesign of UsenetBucket.

As we like to call it, our sand castle was about to collapse due to the fast growth of customers. We needed something new and stable, so we build a sky-scraper. We would love to tell what we have changed, but that would lead to a story without an end. We would rather tell you what we haven't changed:

Yup, correct, we have changed everything! For those whom are interested, we have created a summary to show (off :) some cool numbers and facts:

In our new website we have integrated 47 requests of our customers. We would like to thank you for that!

A change like this can't pass by without celebrating it. Therefore, you will find a surprise in your brand new, fully upgraded Control Panel.

In addition to our brand new website, we have brought our Customer Support Team to the front. Moreover we now have a Mobile Control Panel for iPhone and we have introducted UBCAP, our Customer Advisory Panel. With UBCAP you can help us to improve our service in exchange for free days of UsenetBucket. Apply for UBCAP today!

Once again, thank you for all of your input. We would love to welcome you to our new website.

Have a great day!

It's scary time! Halloween!

Posted on 16-10-2013 10:55:24 by Cecilia Johansson

We're deep in October, only a few weeks away from the holiday season. The dark times fall over our planet and the skies turn pitch black at night. Ghosts and spirits arrive. Pumpkins light up and suddenly they have their faces cut out in terrifying shapes. While we all have to watch our backs at night; we know what time it is: It's almost Halloween!

We at UsenetBucket feel pretty scared this time of year and we'd like to share that with you. So we've made you a little teaser for what's coming. What's coming you're asking? We won't tell, otherwise there will be no need for a teaser ;-)



Did we scare you? If not, just wait! We'll try again from the 20th of october. Stay tuned!

Keep being scared,
Esmée de Reijke

PS. Don't worry its just Halloween...or is it?!

PPS. There might be a good deal in this Halloween promotion!

We did it again!

Posted on 23-07-2013 20:47:03 by Esmée de Reijke

Once again we are happy to tell you that we have made a change to UsenetBucket due to input of our customers. A small icon appeared today, showing that we accept a new way of payment.

We would like to announce that we have implemented Bitcoin payments. As of today we accept Bitcoins on new orders and any upgrade in the future.

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network.

We would like to thank our customers that pointed out this service upgrade.

If there is anything else we need to change, fill out a testimonial. You can do so by logging in to your User Control Panel and check the promo tab. It even gives you a 20% discount on your next order!

We Listen!

Posted on 18-06-2013 09:57:30 by Cecilia Johansson

As some of you might have noticed it has been unable to track your used traffic on the Basic and Comfort Bucket. The reason behind this is that we got a lot of suggestions from ouyr customers to remove the traffic limits on these Bucket.

Therefor we have been running a test pool to see what users did if we did remove the traffic limits, without given notice. Everyone passed the test with flying colours! Since of today we are happy to announce that all the Buckets on our website have Unlimited Traffic!

We would like to thank our customers that pointed out this service upgrade.

If there is anything else we need to change, fill out a testimonial. You can do so by logging in to your User Control Panel and check the promo tab. It even gives you a 20% discount on your next order!
