ServerWand Launch

08 Feb 2019

There comes a point where you outgrow shared hosting offerings either because of cost, performance or some other concern. The natural progression is to move your sites onto a VPS server from the likes of Linode. Setting up and managing servers takes time and expertise. There are control panel software you can use like Plesk and CPanel but they are expensive, propietary and consume server resources. The solution to this problem is ServerWand..

ServerWand can connect directly to your VPS server and will install and configure the software you need to run a webserver. You can then use the interface to:

  • Create hosting accounts for your domains
  • Add domain aliases
  • Create MySQL databases
  • Install free SSL via LetsEncrypt
  • Install wordpress in one click
  • Add system users
  • Manage cronjob scheduled tasks
  • Browse server logs

ServerWand also employs several security measures to make your server more secure.

This service is borne out of a desire to make my own life easier and I'm sure it can benefit others. It's free to try for 30 days and there is special early bird pricing available while the service is in beta.
