ApisCP 3.2 lifetime sale

nemnem Member, Provider
edited September 21 in Offers

ApisCP 3.2 was released on August 13, a significant milestone in ApisCP development. Lifetime licenses have been added for Startup ($159, 30 domains) and Mini ($99, 10 domains) classes which are perfect complements for smaller cloud servers. Pro ($499) has no domain restrictions. A special promotion is available until October 1 to discount these above prices:

Use coupon code JOY32 at checkout for 50% off any lifetime license.

Lifetime licenses work with all future versions of ApisCP.


Since the initial release announcement, 3.2 has continued to evolve, separating Web Apps into their own modules and adding Docker support.

Multi-server support is getting a makeover next. Keep your eyes peeled on apisnetworks/cp-proxy. As requested, MSS will allow jumping between servers as admin and transparent SSO into domains on other servers.

Stay tuned! :heart:

@jh @webcraft the party has commenced

    Before

  • @op How big is your firm? Are you a solo programmer or do you have a team? Assuming solo, do you have a business continuity plan in place should you be unable to continue? Or will people just need to abandon your product at that time?

    Nothing profound to say, so I'm on LET.

    They are not that low-end actually. Check their managed hosting brand hostineer.

    Corporation lives on, wife sells the software, retires early, then buys an island. I've been approached by plenty of suitors going back to ASO in 2011 to acquire this software, but none that align with my interests.

    Whenever a creative lead leaves a company, so goes that vision. Even if I were to voluntarily step down and pursue other ventures, this platform would be a shell of its former self (cue cPanel sale). ApisCP is different; it grew its own direction as practicable problem solving. Would someone else who took over the reins have the same direction? Unlikely.

    On the upside, Hostineer/Apis Networks has been around for 18 years and at 36, I still have quite a bit of gas in my tank.

    I am always surprised from questions and thinking of people as you..
    Do u really think it is so easy and 1 man can secure so bunch of work as there is visible (app, website, sale, all at once and ALONE)?

    If yes, try do it!

  • seriesnseriesn Member, Top Provider

    Just my 2 cents,

    This is a solid piece of software with a very unique and non traditional approach. Not meant for a drop in Cpanel/DA replacement but rather a different way of doing things.

  • When does this end?

  • nevermind I'm blind.

    Can we upgrade later? (e.g. mini -> startup -> pro)
    Quite expensive regarding only one support request per year. I know you need to effort your life but this is way above $7.

  • Once I install a license, can I migrate the license to another server, or will I be locked forever to an IP address?
    Also, will it be possible to transfer licenses between accounts?
    Thanks.

    Sure thing. I can prorate these charges on a case-by-case basis for LET members.

    Pro licenses include bronze support with no restrictions apart from the stipulation fair usage rules apply. That single ticket policy was in place during early development to allow me to focus on development. Nowadays there's an incredible team on Discord that does a better job of explaining things than I could ever hope to imagine. :*

    Best of all, if there's a curveball that gets asked, I'm always available to help otherwise my time goes toward development.

    I can do this for lifetime licenses. Create an account on my.apiscp.com, PM me your license quantities, and email address on there for an invoice.

    Hopped nodes on the demo server this morning for general cleanup + MariaDB 10.5, all's well again.

    I wish this project gets some support from the community.

    It could become an all in one solution to replacing cPanel + CageFS + LVE + LiteSpeed.

    This advantage is also the shadow on them. They are likely to attract less light if third party plugins can't get any benefit out of it.

    That's true. There are enough people who don't like cPanel, so that's okay.

    I am not looking for a lowend alternative. But I do hope that some control panel stands up to the level to challenge cPanel.

    They have increased their prices by shattering the entire shared hosting industry. What's stopping them from a repeat if not an alternative?

    For cPanel, yes - feed it a backup from cpmove.

    I am not looking for a lowend alternative. But I do hope that some control panel stands up to the level to challenge cPanel.

    cPanel is a terrible design from the start - account metadata in user-land, everything under public_html, single-user model, no real system users beyond main, third-party licensing for resource enforcement/1-clicks/malware, Perl technical debt, etc. cPanel rose to this level of prominence because vendors were too afraid to change their perspectives.

    This panel will never be a cPanel replacement because there's opportunity to do things much better than architecture rooted in the 90s. I always advise firms moving off cPanel to take what you know about cPanel, then throw it out the door. Use Bootstrapper to hook in your custom platform changes and make liberal use of Scopes to avoid misconfiguration.

    Much of ApisCP's default configuration is patterned off my hosting company over the last 18 years. That is to say, it's tuned from the start with real world experience.

    I understand when you say that. You are a panel dev and most us are just panel operators with some linux skills. So, the view you take and the one we perceive might be different. But the end goal isn't different. It is to have something that is accepted widely and lessen admin hours by automation.

    I do remember the passion and love for your making that I have seen in your writing. It is something I cherish and have seen in only a handful of devs. My warmest wishes will always be for you and your panel.

  • @nem , You should consider the opinions of other panel operators, it will increase the confidence and comfort of using ApisCP.
    I also hope that ApisCP Development follows the usual panel interface used by end users, as providers have a tough task of convincing their clients to accept using ApisCP.

  • nemnem Member, Provider

    @webcraft said:

    It's one of the three milestones before the end of the year. I'm returning to work on cp-proxy on Wednesday. After that reseller support through bless API calls that allows splitting an account to a subordinate as a reseller. Those accounts may be further subdivided because it's a simple recursion problem then. i18n will be the final major feature on target before the end of the year.

    @ExonHost said:
    I see you are supporting bacula backup only. Do you have plan for integrating other backup method?

    I haven't diverted effort to other approaches because Bacula works and there's a 1-click drop in that automatically configures itself. Backups that work and you can trust they work perfectly is peace of mind.

    If you want to do a one-off backup, you can archive shadow/ and info/ where these are an account's data and metadata layers. Some have opted for Borg instead, but the process is the same.

    ApisCP is developer-first design, which provides significant tooling for automation and differentiation (Ansible, collections, Laravel). Firms that have switched have been thrilled with what ApisCP offers and the ease of customization, but it requires a deep dive to appreciate. Spin up a free 30-day trial and explore yourself!

    Most of the chatter goes on in #feature-requests on the ApisCP Discord server. It allows me to storyboard these concerns in real-time and get a feel for the direction someone is going as well as pull in opinions from other panel operators already using ApisCP. Support questions on there are answered within minutes, which helps instill confidence and bolsters community leadership.

    ApisCP isn't for everyone, but those who have made the switch - and it fits their business model - are absolutely thrilled with it. Lead, don't follow.

    The problem is that 99% of "web hosts" don't know their ass from a playbook and just want to curl|bash an insecure script that installs whatever shitpanel they can sell 10000 accounts on.

    A full install occupies 7-10 GB storage whether CentOS 7 or 8. Depending upon how many sites you host (>200), metrics can occupy a few more GB over its lifetime.

    It can be upgraded, but you'll have quite a number of migrations to replay. Reinstallation will be faster. I test builds on Vultr 2 GB high-frequency nodes, which complete around 45-55 minutes. Nexus Bytes/@seriesn has the observed record for install time at 39 minutes.

    Forward me your license to [email protected] before decommissioning the machine so I can convert it to a reissuable license. Those QA licenses from last year cannot be reissued.
