What is Installatron Server?

Installatron Server is an API and optional GUI that enables the Installatron web application automation platform to be incorporated into existing web hosting infrastructure. With almost a decade of testing and improvements as its foundation, deploying Installatron Server bypasses expensive development costs and gives website owners access to the best solution on the market. Installatron Server can be self-hosted or hosted as a service on Installatron.com.

Installatron Server

Self-hosted

Two hosting configurations are available when self-hosting:

  • Installatron Server is hosted on one or more centralized servers. Application files are "pushed" over a transparent FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SSH, or NFS layer to any web hosting account.

  • Installatron Server is hosted on each web hosting server. This option offers a small performance advantage as there is no overhead from network communication, however there can be considerably more maintenance as each web hosting server is running its own instance of Installatron Server.

Hosted as a service

An instance of Installatron Server for your company is deployed at Installatron.com. Application files are "pushed" over a transparent FTP, FTPS, SFTP or SSH layer to any web hosting account.

Check out our Installatron Remote product for an example of the technology in action. This is also an example of our optional GUI re-branded and themed to match our website.

Integration

Regardless of the hosting configuration chosen, these interfaces can be used to integrate Installatron Server into existing infrastructure:

  • HTTP API
    A JSON interface and a URL-encoded pair interface are available.

  • Command-line API, bypassing HTTP protocol overhead
    A JSON interface and a human-friendly --key=value pair interface is available.

  • Installatron Server GUI
    To save integration time and cost, an optional GUI is available. It is possible to re-brand and/or re-theme the GUI. A simple link with embedded account information is all that's necessary to load a user into the GUI.

Licensing

Self-hosted, there two licensing models available for Installatron Server.

  • Per server
    Cost is based on the number of web hosting servers. The per-server rate starts at $5/month for one server and scales cheaper for multiple servers. This is the more traditional model (it's similar to how cPanel and Plesk are licensed), and it's our most popular licensing model.

  • Per use
    Cost is based on the level of usage by web hosting customers. This model was developed to provide an alternative to the traditional licensing model.
