WP Cloud Server

Descripción

‘WP Cloud Server’ allows you to manage all of your cloud server accounts from a single, powerful, control panel inside your WordPress Dashboard. But it’s real power is when you combine services together using templates. For example, you can create a template that automatically deploys a DigitalOcean Droplet, connects it to ServerPilot, and installs WordPress.

Support for WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads is built-in, so you can create a hosting plan product and attach a template! When a customer purchases the plan and payment completes the services are deployed as defined by the template!

Built-in Modules

The plugin includes built-in modules that provide support for many of the most popular cloud providers and services available today. Once the plugin is installed you can use any service for which you have an account! Modules can be activated and deactivated at will to suit your set-up!

With the current release of the plugin the following modules are built-in.

  • DigitalOcean
  • Linode
  • UpCloud
  • Vultr
  • Amazon Lightsail
  • RunCloud
  • ServerPilot
  • Cloudways

Overtime, with each release of the plugin we will be adding more modules and additional features.

Connecting to Services

As we said above you can use a combination of modules for which you have an account. For example, to deploy servers with Amazon Lightsail and to connect them to RunCloud would require your own account with both Amazon Lightsail and RunCloud.

Please note that both services may charge a fee for the services that you wish to use! Please make sure that you understand the costs involved when creating templates, etc.

WP Cloud Server connects to services using the official API’s. Each module has a settings page where you can enter the necessary API credentials. Once a valid set of credentials are added and saved you can start using the powerful features built-in to the plugin!

Privacy Policy

As mentioned earlier this plugin connects to your existing cloud service accounts. The plugin saves your API credentials which are only used to send ‘Post’ or ‘Get’ requests related to information that you are viewing or commands you activate to manage servers. Your personal API credentials can be deleted whenever you wish from the appropriate settings page, and are never communicated outside of your WordPress site, apart from the API calls mentioned above, and are deleted when you uninstall the plugin.

Features Overview

The plugin allows you set-up exactly the hosting environment that you want by providing the following features;

  • Use the set-up wizard to enter your API Keys and SSH Keys for the services you wish to use.
  • Modules can be enabled or disabled to match your ideal use case.
  • Module specific functionality is only displayed when the appropriate module is activated.
  • Modules can interact e.g for connecting a DigitalOcean Droplet to ServerPilot or RunCloud.
  • Install WooCommerce or EDD to sell website hosting plans using templates.
  • Manually create new servers from inside the WP Admin Dashboard.
  • Add startup scripts that can be selected when creating a new server or in templates.
  • Add SSH Keys that can be selected when creating a new server.
  • Create server templates to allow selling of website hosting plans to customers.
  • Enable Server Backups.
  • Automatically connect new cloud servers to ServerPilot or RunCloud.
  • List full details of servers.
  • List full details of server templates.
  • Perform reboots, power cycles, shutdowns, or delete servers from the control panel.

Powerful Module Add-ons

Over the coming weeks and months we will be actively adding new features to the WP Cloud Server plugin making it a truly powerful cloud server management tool and hosting platform. We will also be adding a steady stream of powerful new features in the form of add-on modules.

These modules will provide additional services such as website monitoring, messaging and alert services, email, and even domain names!

New Features

Our aim so far has been to build a powerful control panel that interacts with the services you wish to use. We have focused on providing the most powerful modules, and have been working to create a stable, easy to use, and speedy interface! This has taken longer than intended, but we believe we are nearly there!

We have tried to integrate the most frequently used actions, such as deploying a server, viewing your servers, connecting servers to services like RunCloud, enabling backups, creating templates, etc.

This means that many features are not yet available! Our intention is to provide all actions for each service over the coming releases, either in the FREE plugin or as add-ons! We are aiming where possible for monthly updates.

We are very much focused on our existing users, several have already helped us to tidy-up the functionality for certain use cases. If you are using the plugin and have an urgent need for a feature not yet implemented, or even for a new module, then please contact us and we will see if we can add the feature in the next release!
