Is there a good WordPress hosting manager?

Iroshan464Iroshan464 Member

My requirements are these.
I would like to provide WordPress hosting for a local group of work colleagues.
I would like to have them to mange there site by themselves. However, they don't need a full cpanel experience. Just to install WordPress and updating an stuff, so I don't have to help them.
This would be more like sitegrounds, WordPress hosting.
Is there a user-friendly affordable script for this.
I know easyengine and wordops, but I think they don't give full control to the client,
Specialized Pass and SaaS are pricey.
Thanks.

    Yes. But it's in a web panel. DA or cpanel.
    Can go with webuzo. It is cheap. if nothing else.

    I think infiniteWP is nice. I was looking at their product earlier. It's a bit expensive though.

    Is it multiuser or multisite?
    Looks like the second. I'll do test run and see.

    It is multisite. You spawn as many websites as you want under one account.

    ISPConfig 3 has this, you can install new wordpress sites in 1 click

  • Thanks @LTniger @alexnf
    It seems like wpultimo is a great choice. However, cost 100$ per year.

    Yeah. That's it. So I can do the updates and background things and users can do frontend.

  • Why's everyone hyped about WP?

  • wordpress has multisite support built in. you will have to handle updates and install plugins and themes. they get to add content, enable/disable plugins and themes only. would this suffice?

    Funny thing, but when you choose a theme you got nothing after the installation. No demo content and your site looks like a lot of shitsites on the web. It's kinda deception, or maybe self-deception? You see a nice theme, wanna download and enjoy, but got only a layout. It's humiliating. For beginners, this is shock and stress

  • Broscience said: For beginners, this is shock and stress

    sad. they have to learn that content is what makes a site not the design. the design is just fluff. even your visitors are there for the content.

    Plesk is great control panel for installation, update and secure the WP, you can try our services:
    https://www.webprovps.com/wordpress-hosting

    We can provide reseller plan and as part of service every instance of WP is updated on weekly basis.

    Everyone is hyped about DA - uncompleted control panel only popular due to attractive price only. If tomorrow the cPanel reverse the price I can bet you that everyone jump back to cPanel! As using DA still need to use ssh in order to complete the tasks compare to cPanel or Plesk can be done in control panel.

    There is a big difference between DA and cPanel/Plesk - 2 bucks/mo vs 15-20... For me cpanel and plesk are overpriced, while DA gives you the opportunity to feel good and comfortable for just 2 bucks.

  • pbxpbx Member

    If they can learn a couple of basic things (upload files using an ftp client, set DB info on wordpress install page) you just need any panel out there. As long as creating a new DB / DB user is easy there is no difficulty in installing wordpress.

    You can check out froxlor if this kind of setup could work for you. Performs great (can run php-fpm with your own tweaks) and stays simple.

    It looks pretty nice :) I found out about it a while ago but the pricing was a bit steep.

    Hey @vyas11

    Since you mentioned these services. What exactly is Cloudron.io?

    Is it just a way to one click install applications or is it more than that?

    So here's what I would look at:

    1. If you are reasonably technical, take a look at ApisCP (https://apiscp.com/). You can pickup a mini license for $30/year and then run the control panel on any VPS with at least 2GB ram (I'd suggest Vultr or Digital Ocean). It has Wordpress auto-update capability built-in. You can host up to 10 domains.
    2. Not cheap, but impressive is Gridpane (https://gridpane.com/). At $30/month you can have unlimited servers/websites and it will basically take care of everything for you. I was with Gridpane before moving to ApisCP. You still have to pair this with at least one VPS/server.
    3. ploi.io is another good option. You pay $9/month and can manage up to 5 servers and unlimited domains. It also requires a separate VPS/server.
    4. RunCloud is also very popular. It's $6.67/month for 1 server and unlimited web applications. As with the others, it requires a separate VPS/server.

    clustercs is another option..

  • sdglhmsdglhm Member

    I have a semi-completed Wordpress panel which I wrote a while ago to learn ropes with Docker. It spins up a new Docker container with Wordpress and Wordpress CLI installed, uses Wordpress CLI for management and other stuff. If you're looking to build one, I can send you some information and guides which I've used to build it.

    Cloudron seems similar to bitnami or other 'one click install' services that are offered on DO, AWS, etc.

    I would actually recommend runcloud, I use this for friends and family and they just use wordpress admin section to manage everything. Also sets up SSL for free.

    • cPanel has a vast selection of plugins available, to expand the abilities of that panel. Even Plesk has quite a few through its Application Vault. But DirectAdmin has almost none.
    • DirectAdmin can handle basic server administration activities quite easily, but advanced functionalities such as clustering or staging support is missing.
    • Basic stuff can be done via control panel but majority tweaks via SSH, other control panels do have functions to edit via control panel. Webmin even allow to run SSH commands via control panel.

    Try a serious theme such as Neve, https://themeisle.com/themes/neve/
    It's a theme, but they also provide hundreds of "example sites" based on the theme complete with images, contents, menus etc. You can install a complete site and then just edit the contents, or just install the theme and build your own site.

    Wa, you have plenty of SSH commands for DA... cPanel has plugins as DA will have in the future, it's easy to build plugins now.

    Who are these pansy users, that a WP theme is capable of humiliating, shocking, and stressing them? They need some tough love and should be forced to create their web sites in raw HTML.
