Sell Hosting Plans with Easy Digital Downloads If the Easy Digital Downloads plugin is installed and activated then you can sell Shared Hosting and Dedicated Cloud Servers to customers and clients. The WP Cloud Server plugin adds additional meta-boxes to EDD download pages, that allow the Module and Server/Template to be selected, and a unique plan name to be added. When a customer clicks the ‘Buy’ button then the Module/Server configuration is used to create the custom checkout fields to retrieve the hosting details. The new website or server is then created and all necessary emails sent out. The reason that we chose the EDD plugin for selling Hosting Plans was firstly the ease by which we could hook into the functionality, and secondly the vast range of payments gateways and options available. This makes WP Cloud Server a fully Hosting Platform. Powerful Module Add-ons Over the coming weeks and months we will be actively adding new features to the WP Cloud Server plugin making it a truly powerful cloud server management tool and hosting platform. We will also be adding a steady stream of powerful new features in the form of Add-on Modules. These Modules will provide additional cloud server providers alongside DigitalOcean, such as Vultr, as well as powerful services such as website monitoring, messaging and alert services, email, and even WordPress management portals!
