What a year 2019 has been for STORM! Many a feature has been introduced, along with lots of adjustments and tweaks which has made this an extremely productive and forward-thinking year for STORM! Our agile model for STORM means we will take on customer feedback and consider each and every option. Here are some of the most important and impactful ones, the best bits if you will.
Life’s easier when you can see everything on your plate, at a glance. That’s the idea behind the STORM multi-server dashboard. It puts every server you’ve got, in one place. So you can find things fast, see what needs attention and make managing clients’ websites a bit of a doddle.
When it comes to Shaping STORM, we often only talk bout the big changes, and often we forget about the little things, the details, the crucial pieces of the puzzles. But this time (surely you can guess this part) we're going to talk about some of those small details that make the user experience...better!
Last month we made it quicker and easier to restart your server, straight from your dashboard.
Nobody wants to max out their server’s disk space. As well as stopping you uploading new files, it can prevent processes running properly, impact your websites’ performance and even cause backups to fail. Bad news all round.
We've added in the free version of Cloudflare to our STORM users on our Oxygen packages and above. For speed, security and site performance, Cloudflare is an awesome tool. It’s a content delivery network that works a bit like a pub bouncer – keeping trouble out of your website, so what’s inside can be even more amazing.
When you’re busy doing your thing, keeping tabs on your server’s memory and CPU isn’t always your main priority. We get it. Which is why we’re bringing in handy email alerts that let you know when they’re running low. They’re your cue to manage your server, do a spot of reorganising or just ask us for some extra space to keep server performance tip top.
Today we’re launching another brand new STORM update, designed to make life (and website management) that little bit easier. This one’s all about WordPress Plugins – giving you a clearer picture of what you’ve got – and where your vulnerabilities are lurking.
A very common reason for downtime or compromised websites is down to a feature in WordPress called XML-RPC. XML-RPC is used as a remotely accessible publishing tool using an offline blogging tool. This was very popular in the early days of WordPress when broadband speeds were much slower, as it made publishing much faster. However, these days it is very rarely used and causes far more problems than it solves.
We’ve always been believers in small changes that make a big difference, so today we launched a pretty handy tweak to our breadcrumb navigation bar. Here goes.
