Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” – Robin Williams

Greetings everyone! Spring is upon us and while we’re not exactly partying, we are having quite a blast here at Site5 as we continue working on creating the very best hosting experience for you! Here’s a quick summary of what we’ve been up to:

  1. We rolled out a new feature on our helpdesk that lets you convey to us in real time whether or not you are happy with a ticket reply, just by clicking on the happy or sad buttons in the email. We feel this can improve support quality as it provides us with prompt and granular feedback at every step of the support process.
  2. We changed the wording on our suspended pages on shared servers to a softer and more general message about the account being unavailable (as opposed to explicitly stating that it was suspended).
  3. We’re ending the promotion on our extremely popular malware protection service on March 15th, so do hurry if you’re interested in this service!
  4. We have been in hiring mode for several weeks now and I’m happy to note that 5 more awesome people have joined the Site5 family! 🙂
  5. As you’re aware, we’re committed to developing free wordpress themes in keeping with our larger goal of empowering people to become creators on the internet! I’m happy to announce that a new theme was launched in February, and another will be launched in March. We’re also working on a WordPress plugin that handles WP shortcodes.
  6. I wrote in my last post about our plans to make SSL certificates available for purchase. We’re still in the process of solidifying the SSL offerings. We’ve narrowed down the specific certificates we will offer initially, and what’s left is specing out the order and fulfillment process as well as pricing itself.
  7. We’re putting the final touches on our new DNS system. Our initial launch will have two servers in Dallas, one in Amsterdam, and one in Singapore.
  8. We’re doing some additional testing on the Cloudflare cPanel plugin, and we will be deploying it to all servers once we’re happy with the results.
  9. As usual, work continues on keeping software up to date and secure:
  • MySQL was upgraded from 5.1.63-65 to 5.1.67 in order to fix a few bugs and a security issue.
  • Work also continues on switching the default PHP version across our fleet to PHP 5.3 and adding support for PHP 5.4.

Thats it from me for now, enjoy the spring everyone (and do follow mother nature’s orders!)
