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.
There’s often a whole bunch of people who need quick, easy access to a server's inner workings, from site owners and project managers to developers and designers.
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.
We’ve been working hard on the STORM search function lately, making it easier to find servers, websites, domains, actions and users. It’s all because we want STORM to be super fast, intuitive and user friendly. And with that in mind, we’ve added another update to the mix…
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.
