Howdy! I hope everyone’s Spring is off time as nice a start as mine is here in Texas!
We post a State of Site5 update once a month to let our current and future customers hear about what we’re working on and give a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our company. We’ve been quite busy this month, so here goes:
- SiteAdmin 2.0 has been released! This is obviously great news, and we’re definitely excited to get it out there! The release schedule is listed publicly here on the blog. After the initial group of shared servers is complete, we will be working on the dedicated servers and VPS servers.
- We have replaced the old, tired Wiki with a brand new Knowledge Base. It is a constant work-in-progress, so if you have any ideas for new articles and/or updates to existing articles, let us know!
- Our new cloud platform is up and running! We are migrating existing shared cloud and cloud VPS clients over to the new cloud and anticipate having this completed within the next few weeks or so.
- As I mentioned last month, our Engineering team has started rewriting our internal system. As much of our system utilizes the cPanel API, members of our Engineering team wrote a Ruby gem named Lumberg and open sourced it!
- We should have a couple new location options for our shared, reseller, and VPS plans soon!
Each month, I’m answering one user-submitted question, and if that user is a customer, their account will be credited with $ 10 that can be used towards future invoices and/or purchases with us (ie, it’s not redeemable for cash). As for stipulations on the questions that can be asked.. anything goes! Keep in mind though that only the questions that are most appealing to the widest audience will be selected. They shouldn’t be only applicable to your own account! So, start sending in your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org being sure to include your account number or domain name with your email if you’re a customer!
This month’s question comes from Jordan:
Does Site5 ever plan on offering Windows servers for shared web hosting?
My parents always taught me to “never say never”.. so the answer to this question is as close to “never” without actually saying it. 😉 In all seriousness, we have absolutely zero plans to incorporate Windows hosting into Site5 at this time. Our competency and strength is in Linux hosting, and that’s where we plan to stay!
Thanks for the question Jordan! Your account has been credited $ 10. 🙂
As always, if you have any questions please post in the comments or on the official post in the forum. Thanks for your continued support!
