If you’ve logged into your easyDNS member area recently, you got an option to switch to the updated theme already.
You can switch right away or wait until November 1st when it will replace the current and somewhat outdated theme.
Why The Update?
Partially the update came about because of the new design of the easydns.com front end, to keep navigating between the front and backend seamless.
Another reason was to make it easier to update your DNS settings on mobile devices when you’re on the go.
How is it different?
Functionally it’s exactly the same. The main difference is, the design changed from horizontal to vertical. The colours also got updated.
What if I want to keep using the old theme?
Get your fill in now as the old theme will be going away on November 1st. The reason for the “hard switch” is to keep the user experience seamless along with the documentation.
The new theme has been running in beta for quite a while but it’s well beyond that now. All the bugs we’re aware of have been squashed. It’s ready for prime time!
The technology of the old theme is also outdated and has limited capabilities for new features so it’s more logical to retire it than to try and maintain two different themes.
What’s my next step?
The sooner you jump in, the sooner you’ll get a feel for the new look. We suggest you log into your account and look around. Give us your feedback too, we’d love to hear from you.
