Last week we asked you a few questions in our survey. First of all thank you to all who responded.
There were some questions in the comment fields which I wanted to answer in a blog post.
Your Questions and Comments
The ability to install on www.
You can do that already. Please see the help center article on the topic.
I’d like to see the capability to FTP a website that’s not a WordPress blog.
We are focusing on being the best automated WordPress hosting. Therefore we don’t have near-future plans for anything other than WordPress. We also don’t allow FTP due to security issues. Most users find an alternative that does not need FTP.
More training, guides etc.
We’re working on a training page with more links and resources.
Ability to setup subdomains.
While this is already possible (you’re looking at blog.easyblognetworks.com which is on our service) it’s still in beta since our DNS check can’t yet confirm third party DNS. We’re working on that and once we have it ready, this will be an officially supported feature.
If you’re not annoyed by notifications, you are free to use subdomains (keeping in mind you need third party DNS hosting to direct the subdomain to our server).
Allow for uploading our own themes.
You can of course upload any theme through the WordPress Theme upload screen.
Add feature to restore Archive.org files to blog with one click.
Downloading files from Archive.org and then preparing them for WordPress is a really complex and time-consuming activity and really hard to automate at this point. There is a service that will do that for you, for around $45 per blog.
Content posting as an add-on would be really cool.
Content module is already being tested by some of our users. See this blog post.
Would like to see more plugins to add to blog.
This would be supported with the blog presets. It would allow you to add any plugin from WordPress.org to a preset.
Make your platform work with Peter Garety’s system.
Currently there are over 150 blogs running Peter’s Dashnex plugin and very few have any issues. If you are one of them who does, let us know and we’ll find a solution.
Other platforms other than WordPress.
While we have plain HTML planned down the line, at this time it’s way to early to tell when and how that will look.
I am still looking for services where I can buy really good domains from.
You can now purchase full PBN setup from us. And you can check The.Domain.Name for over half a BILLION expired domains. You’ll have to email them for a signup link though since they’re not officially launched yet.
And thanks to all who sent us kind words!
Dude you guys have totally given me a chance to set and forget a lot of this PBN craziness! I love it! I’m recommending the service to anyone playing around with PBNs
We love to hear things like that so keep them coming. ;)
