    • 2 GB SSD storage

    • You can bring your own domain or use sub-domain
    • Memcached support (localhost:11211)
    • Free SSL
    • 3 website limit per user

    Feedback appreciated as this is beta version regarding functionality.

    • Nicely done, looks very clean.

      I'm going to just going to assume you do but, make sure you have protections against unsecured plugins :) Since you'll probably get 100+ orders

      Thanked by 1receivedthanks
    • Foul said: make sure you have protections against unsecured plugins

      At the moment there is nice security -> delete offender. In future I will implement some sort of Wordpress plugin scanner and automatically remove those who will be in blacklist.

      Regarding order quantity, at the moment each location support 50 websites.

      Good to hear you have it in mind already. Most hosts don't.

      I wish you the best of luck with this friend! ♥

      This won't end well.

      If you can't make your point within 5 lines of words, you have an optimization issue.

      So many ways to go wrong.

      The days are gone where people respected free stuff. These days, kids take free stuff for granted.

    • Isn't multiple wordpress installations on a VPS pretty hard to do? It seems like running a wordpress hosting service would be a highly technical endeavor? Tons of fucked up plugins, constant updates that might break stuff, high memory usage, lots of attack vectors, high caching needed, lots of mysql reads/writes.

      I never tried, but it seems hard to me.

      Hm, didn't thought that. Just use domain form and you should be good to go.

      Received mass backlog with some bugs.

      • Fixed wrong location selection as well as category
      • Fixed error with Wordpress posts not saving (AJAX requests denied)

      The niche seletion is bugged, I selected computers and internet or something like that but panel shows automotive in one window and art & culture in other.

      You should add an option to make a backup of the site and database ;)

      Also an option for people who made the "subdomain.hostwp.net" can move later to "owndomain.com" would be great.

      I just created my blog, selected USA and I see Europe in the dashboard...

      Good job for now, and great free service!

      I have premium Google accounts with unlimited storage & OneDrive accounts with Office 365 and 5 Terabytes storage, 1 cheap payment and lifetime account. Send me PM.

      Damn bugs, now those nasty buggers should be fixed.

      Nice suggestions! Currently working on 'website migrator', feature that allows user to quickly relocate his website from USA to EU or vice versa. Adding your suggestions to the list.

    • Speed like mentioned earlier is awesome. Kicked the tyres, time to take the WP setup for a spin.

      Thx again for this

    • Is this a trial of Hetzner's abuse handling system?
      If so, brilliant!
      You will learn how exactly to run a shared host on Hetzner for longer terms.

      Hope the kids don't drive you insane in the meantime. 🤞

      Great!
      This WP site idea has given me an idea. You know there are hundreds of free softwares available like mybb, zencart, etc. so I am thinking about something similar. But I am not sure how many sites can a VPS handle. I know this is subjective and depends on lot of factors but still just wanted to have an idea. I have 1GB VPS lying around so might as well use it. May be if I use nginx then I can squeeze some more sites than using apache!?

      First beta version of this system I made after 6 months of work. Such project is not an easy task if you have full time job.

      If this project will lift up from beta to real world, next I would go for prestashop maybe.

      Forum hosting is dead, believe me. I had a script which hosted multiple phpBB forums and 98% of service users was insanely heavy spammers or pr0n distributors.
