Coming Soon: Custom Server Support

One of our most requested features is support for custom servers – both custom VPS and bare metal. With the introduction of Virtual Server Providers, we’re finally able to make this feature a reality. One of the elements we tried to avoid was forcing a user to run a long custom script or specialized commands…

Connect to multiple accounts at the same cloud provider using our new Virtual Server Provider feature.


Sell Cloud Server Subscriptions With WooCommerce & WPCloudDeploy

The next version of WPCloudDeploy will include the ability for end users to purchase cloud servers using WooCommerce and WooCommerce Subscriptions. We suspect that agencies might find some very creative ways to use this feature and we’re excited to see where it goes.

Our Experience With WPUltimo Hooks

WPUltimo is the only plugin of it’s kind. But, unfortunately, its hooks and filters are very poorly documented . Since we’ve been using it for various projects recently we’ve learned a few things. So, in this article we’ll try to share what we’ve discovered – hopefully some of you will find it useful. We definitely…


Real-World Performance Metrics

We recently moved a complex site over to the WPCloudDeploy stack. After seeing performance improvements right away, we wondered how much load the site could actually handle on it’s new server. So, we proceeded to run some brute-force tests on it to get some metrics. Want to see the results? We wrote about our testing…
