    FreeSSL now available in Managed Server Control Panel

    - by GB

    We’ve recently deployed an update to our Managed Cloud Server Control Panel that adds support for managing FreeSSL (Let’s Encrypt) Certificates from directly within the Control Panel. This means that all our Managed Cloud Server customers can now instantly apply SSL Certificates to their sites with the click of button. With this new addition — and considering the performance and SEO benefits of running sites with SSL — we recommend that all Cloud Server sites run under SSL. More information, and complete instructions for using the Cloud Server Control Panel are available in our WP NET KnowledgeBase.

    We have exciting news today … our Cloud Server Control Panel is officially released and available now! Our Managed Cloud Servers are built for speed and security. We have gone to considerable lengths to ensure that these servers are as lean as possible — and that includes the control panel. The software installed on the server is very light-weight and uses practically zero resources. As you would expect, all communication between the control panel and the server uses SSL / HTTPS. We have intentionally made the interface as simple and uncluttered as possible. Most actions require only a few clicks. In short: it’s fast, secure and easy to use.  … continues

Most notably, WooCommerce now includes “native” support for Shipping Classes — a long requested and very welcome feature. Other changes include some UI improvements, with AJAX refreshes for the Cart pages and a nice tabbed interface for the My Account pages. You can read more about the changes on the WooCommerce Dev blog. Thinking of updating to WooCommerce 2.6? While this is an exciting update for WooCommerce users, there are a few important things to be aware of before you upgrade. This is a major update and should ideally be performed by a web designer or developer who can ensure that everything goes smoothly and recoverable backups are taken before any changes are made.   … continues
