Beanstalk provides private and secure hosting for version control platforms Subversion and Git. It’s great for collaborating on software and deploying to live via FTP/SFTP, removing the need for SSH access.
For deploying, the first step is to create your development environment.
This simply consists of entering your FTP details.
Once this is setup, you can then manually or automatically deploy to live.
Select your revision and the transfer will go into a queue and should take just a few minutes.
Support is great too, any issues that have cropped up were solved quickly. If you’re looking for version control with easy deployment, we highly recommend Beanstalk!
Over the past couple of years the blog has gone through quite a few different designs. It’s hard to say if users prefer a company blog to be integrated into the design of the rest of the site, or as a separate entity. But in the end, it seemed like it’d be best to integrate and avoid confusion.
Over the next year, we’ll be interviewing PinchHost clients and industry experts, as well as providing some web hosting industry commentary.
If there’s any specific areas you’d like us to talk about, contact us.
P.S. If you hadn’t noticed, we’ve sneakily integrated our pricing plans into the sidebar to entice new readers.
As an extra bonus, thanks to our billing overhaul, we now accept Google Checkout… on checkout. Google Checkout has grown quickly since it launched and I know it’s some clients preferred payment gateway. If you’re an existing customer, just select Google Checkout when you receive your next invoice.
Over the past few works we’ve been busy overhauling our support, FAQ, affiliate and billing system. Previously all these systems worked as separate entities. Now they’ve all been packaged into one, WHMCS – an excellent billing and support system. This now means you need not have a separate login information for your support, billing and affiliate account. Instead, it’s all in one easy to use portal.
This is a move long overdue and it’ll not only make life easier for you, but also for us! (Support and Billing)
Along with the overhaul, we’ve also refreshed our pricing plans and now have 3 plans instead of just 2. Existing clients will continue on the same plan as they signed up with.
