Sometimes small things make a big difference. And that’s the idea behind today’s STORM update. Because we’ve added a nifty little tool in the top right-hand corner of your dashboard, designed to tell you what your server’s up to, in real time. We’re calling it the active queue.
If you’re looking after a whole load of websites across a whole load of servers, keeping track of each site’s DNS can be pretty tough. So, our latest STORM update is all about making it quicker and easier (you’re welcome 😉).
It’s not always sunshine and rainbows out there online, and if you’ve ever been the target of a nuisance IP, you’ll know what a massive headache it can be.
You know we love keeping your servers secure. Which is why we’ve had two-factor authentication on STORM for, well, ages now. It’s essentially a second layer of security that makes sure anyone trying to get into an account, a system, or in our case a server, is who they say they are.
You might remember a while back, we made it easier to search for your websites in STORM and see whether they were live or suspended. You just typed in the name and you’d see a quick description next to the website, telling you its current status. Handy right?
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.
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.
