YikeSite Upgrades Basis for New Dashboard

September 12, 2014

GUELPH, ON - YikeSite is happy to announce that our backend upgrades are reaching a successful conclusion and are the basis for YikeSite becoming a Website Management Dashboard. 

YikeSite Upgrades

First, we have updated the permissions scheme on YikeSite, which will enable us to have much more granular permissions. We have made some changes already on the permissions that Site Owners can give their users. More importantly, this will also give us much more flexibility to increase password enabled features for our Hosts sites in the future.

Second, on Saturday night we are moving YikeSite to  a load balancing system to increase our capacity to handle more websites in a more robust way. And we can easily scale the system if demand requires it.

Third, we are doubling the storage capacity on all our plans. This has not been an issue in the past, but it does impact a few customers, so making sure this is not an issue for our YikeSite Hosts.

We are very pleased that to date, these upgrades have gone very smoothly, with very little downtime.

Introducing a Website Dashboard

What we are particularly excited about is that we can now focus on the development of YikeSite so that it becomes a Website Management Dashboard.

The idea is that as a YikeSite Host, you would be able to log in and see all your websites at a glance, with your sites pertinent information on a single screen. From there you can quickly click to see a site, or drill down to take care of some more administrative things, such as adding users and configuring site-wide settings. You would also be able to create, duplicate, upgrade, and downgrade sites.

We are also developing a series of Wireframe templates that will give our Hosts the ability to easily make these into stunning websites. These templates are going to be based on Twitter Bootstrap, and will work with our customers to develop the ones that are most pertinent.

We are hoping that we will be able to release the Website Dashboard as a beta later this fall. If you are interested in being a part of it, then please enter your email address at the top of this page.
