Wordpress Benchmarking

We tested our Servers with a basic WordPress installation. We simulated 50 visitors over a period of 30 seconds and measured the average number of requests per second.

No caching plugins or other optimisations were used. WordPress 5.2.3 was installed with the Twenty Seventeen theme, with no plugins or additional caching.

We used a Siege stress test system based in London. We only tested UK based hosts, and their closest equivalent to our Lively Plan.

We're faster than our competitors, and more than happy to prove it.

WordPress Requests per Second

DevonWebs 342.89

Namecheap 143.85

Unlimited 147.81

As you can see we are much fast, and can handle more!

Internet Explorer 11 End of Support in cPanel Version 88

cPanel continues to move towards a more modern user interface framework to provide the best product experience possible.

That’s why we are going to start shifting away from Internet Explorer 11, starting with Version 88. This change not only offers a better user experience, but it also allows us to be more efficient in our development process.

We are encouraging cPanel users to discontinue the use of IE11 as their primary web browser of choice when using cPanel & WHM and move to a more modern browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.

Updating the cPanel & WHM UI/UX Framework

To keep our User Interface and User Experience (UX) up-to-date with more modern standards, cPanel has been moving to various newer frameworks (such as Angular) to stay current with our UI technology and remain flexible in improving those frameworks in Version 88 and beyond.

The actual user impact is minimal, and the only action you need to take is to switch to an alternate web browser. Over time, applications within cPanel & WHM will no longer function when using IE11, and you may experience unexpected behaviours or the inability to use certain features.

Browsers Supported in cPanel Version 88

We recommend updating your browser to one that supports more modern frameworks.

Brave Google Chrome Safari Microsoft Edge

Account, Email, Database and DNS Restore (cPanel)

We've tweaked the backup system slightly and now allow clients to restore the following from within their cPanel accounts:
