Server Avatar Integration

InstaWP allows the addition of a Server Avatar hosting integration, which is an automated cloud management system that allows you to manage WordPress sites on the Server Avatar server that you created or migrated from your InstaWP platform.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to:

Add Server Avatar Integration
Create a New Site
Manage Server Avatar Hosted Site
Migrate Staging Site
Create a New WaaS

Let’s get started 🚀

Add Server Avatar Integration



Go to the Hosting page, and click on the Connect Hosting button to add the Server Avatar Integration.



Note: If you don’t have an Api Key for Server Avatar integration, visit here for more information.



After entering the values in the connection form, click the Connect button.



Create a New Site



Now that the Server Avatar is connected to your InstaWP account, it allows you to create a new site on the Server Avatar server. For that, you can follow the below steps:



Manage Server Avatar Hosted Site



Once connected, manage your newly created Server Avatar hosted site by configuring the options from the following settings:

Connect Settings
Hosting Settings

You can choose the Purge cache option to free up server resources, making your connected site function faster and more efficiently, particularly in terms of a site's Time to First Byte (TTFB), by serving pages and static cache directly from the closest server available to visitors.



Hosting Settings



You can view and configure the following options that are available on the hosting settings:

Dashboard
Map Domain
Delete



Dashboard



You can view your Server Avatar - hosted website’s PHP version and space used.



Map Domain



You can view your primary mapped domain and map your Server Avatar hosted site with a new domain name by linking it to a web-hosting server, such as Cloudflare or Namecheap. For more information, refer to Map domain document.



Delete



You can also delete your Server Avatar hosted site when not in use anymore.



Migrate Staging Site



InstaWP allows you to migrate your site to the Server Avatar server. It involves copying all files and databases related to the website and then updating settings for the staging site to work on its new server. For that, you can follow the below steps:



Create a New WaaS



InstaWP also allows you to host your WaaS sites on the Server Avatar server.

The user needs to create a shared template and monetize it. Then, this shared template will be used as WaaS (Website as a Service).

Afterwards, you can follow the below steps:

Go to the WaaS setting dialog, where you can enter the WaaS name and select your monetized template (single or multiple) that will be displayed publicly.
