We know that editing your hosts file can be painful, and even more painful asking your clients to do it, so we have made this much easier with a new feature inside STORM. If STORM detects your website is WordPress and the DNS on the website is not yet live you have the option to enable WordPress Preview. WordPress Preview is a toggle on the website dashboard that takes just a few seconds to enable.

A Single Login is Bad for your Business

With other hosting platforms like Plesk and cPanel it is common to share the login to your servers with your team. With STORM we take a different approach that each member of your team should be invited into the server instead. We have made this process very easy by just typing their email address into the team section of each server and clicking invite. If you have multiple servers we have recently added a tick box to invite them to all of the servers in one invite.

To kick off the new year we’ve launched a new feature to make it easier to sort, view and organise your websites on STORM. On a STORM server with plenty of websites it can be difficult to remember which website belongs to which client, even the status of website build or even how much client's pay. The new Tagging system in STORM will make this process far easier.

DNS Now Inside STORM

October 4, 2018 / by Tim Dunton

Until now accessing and editing the DNS entries on your domains has been outside of STORM. This has meant before you could launch your web site on STORM you had to find the login details to a third party web site holding the DNS, edit the entries and then wait for the changes to go live. These steps can add minutes, hours or even days to launching a new web site.

We have launched a new feature called Duplicate which is an extension of the Staging feature that is already available. The existing Staging feature works by copying a web site and database and automatically updating the CMS config file with the new database. However Staging is only available if STORM can detect which CMS you are using, ie WordPress or Magento.
