Hello,

Potential customer here. Your website writes: "to always provide you with the latest tools while still keeping our servers stable"

Did you allreay deployed or are you planning to deploy the latest Apache 2.4.2 and Nginx 1.2.0 to your mainstream webserver installation soon?

I know that it should be possible to install it by muself but self-install and management, is beyond my potential scope.

We've not yet deployed either of those. We're considering upgrading to the latest Nginx, but we don't have a timeline for deployment.

Regarding the statement on our website, a big part of that is "keeping our servers stable", so we can't just jump into upgrades - there's a lot of testing and debugging involved to ensure that it will work on all of our various server architectures without disrupting existing sites.

Hope that helps!

So Nginx 1.2.0 is a possibility, but Apache 2.4.2. is to unstable for now?

Both are possibilities, but I simply can't say if we'll be able to deploy them at any time in the foreseeable future.

Other than being the latest and greatest, is there some particular feature of the latest Nginx and Apache that you're looking for?

Thanks for your help Sean. About features, yet not specifically.

It's more to see what your vision is in this case. I like your honest answer. Btw. I enrolled myself to your hosting plan.
