For example, if you assign the pipeline to the Master branch, it will be automatically executed on every push to Master.3.

You can add run Gulp/Grunts before the deployment, update assets in your S3 bucket, send a notification to your Slack channel, and much more.
Updating a website nowadays is a challenge: before uploading it to the server you probably need to run some tasks with Gulp or Grunt, bundle assets with Webpack, update media on S3, and so on, and so on.
Oh, and don’t forget about flushing that cache after the deployment!
In our case, we host our Word Press website with WP Engine and our domain registrar is Go Daddy.
