Today marks an important day for us! We have just had confirmation that our latest plugin has been approved for submission into the WordPress Plugin Directory.

So what is ‘WP Cloud Server’? As you know from the information on this site, DesignedforPixels loves WordPress, and Linux, and Servers! What we get the biggest buzz from is when we can combine them all together to make clients lives easier!

The Internet is bulging at the seams with companies selling managed Cloud Servers. This is great, and some of the services offered are amazing!

But sometimes you just want a simple way to create a WordPress website that is under your own control. Sometimes you wish you could sell a Theme or a Plugin and also offer hosting that includes them already installed!

‘WP Cloud Server’ allows you to create server templates for creating DigitalOcean Droplets on the ‘fly’, with WordPress installed. You can then add these to hosting plans and sell them. As soon as the purchase is complete the server is automatically created and emails sent out.

You can also attach DigitalOcean servers to ServerPilot, a server management service, and create shared hosting with WordPress installed.

Both ‘DigitalOcean’ and ‘ServerPilot’ are included as modules which have their own tab. You can see a list of servers and websites created.

At the moment the selling side of things is handled by ‘Easy Digital Downloads’, a powerful digital downloads selling platform which actually includes some powerful add-ons!

We hope you enjoy the new plugin! We have big plans for both the plugin and additional add-ons. So watch this space, or even better sign-up for our newsletter and keep updated with updates.
