Custom Hosting Packages and Roles for your Clients

We are excited to introduce two newly released functionalities for our Cloud hosting plans working with Site Tools – the options to create Hosting Packages and define Client Roles. The Hosting Packages feature allows you to tailor the resources allocated to each of the sites hosted on your cloud, while the client role allows you to specify which site management tools will be available to your clients. 

Customise the hosting resources of your clients 

Customise the hosting resources of your clients
You can specify what resources each package has access to.

With the new Hosting Package feature you can create a custom hosting package for each of the websites hosted on your cloud. By default, every website on a cloud can use the cloud’s full capacity, but with the new feature you can easily limit any website to the resources you consider appropriate. If you host multiple clients on a cloud plan, this feature will make it easier for you to provide a tailor-made hosting plan to each of them.

Manage the set of tools available to your clients

Manage the set of tools available to your clients
You can specify which tools will be available for each of your clients.

With the new Client Role feature you can control which tools will be available to the clients hosted on your cloud. By default, all clients you create receive a full access to all management tools in a white label version of our Site Tools. By creating custom roles and assigning them to your clients, you can choose which tools exactly to be included in the Site Tools of each of your clients.  

Who has access to these features?

Тhe new features are available to our Cloud customers using Site Tools. If you have a cloud plan with WHM and cPanel, have no worry! We will be switching all our cloud users to Site Tools in the upcoming months and once we do, you will be able to take advantage of these functionalities.

Hello, Can we also manage the cpu usage to each of our clients websites, as a percent of our total resources?

The CPU usage is global for the Cloud account and can't be easily split between different Site Tools instances. We will soon release the Stats module which will give you detailed info about each site's usage so you can suspend ones going over the limits, upgrade the account, etc.

Hey, RE resource allocation, does this just cover what WHM offers or are you talking about CPU/RAM restrictions too? Also, is there a plan for a WHMCS module? I use WHM for a number of integrations with the cloud server which ideally would still be available.. e.g. auto-provisioning, suspension, stats reporting etc.. Thanks!

CPU and RAM usage can't be managed per site basis and are global resources for the Cloud account. As for your integrations, we have a public API on the roadmap but I don't know when exactly it will become available. The same goes for a billing software implementation similar to WHMCS.

I hate that WHM is going away to your custom setup. This is really going to hurt your business.

Hey Gary, That's a step from the process of migration to Site Tools. We believe that with the new website-focused service and all the management tools we develope for it we provide a superior hosting product. With the new Roles & Capabilities functionality I believe you will enjoy the cloud service even more than before!

Thank you for these new features. Have you considered something similar to overdraft protection on cloud hosting? Something similar to a bank? We had an abnormal amount of traffic on our site and it was temporarily 503. Perhaps a monthly overdraft protection feature for very unusual times? Say once or twice a month max?

You are basically describing our Autoscaling feature. I am afraid we don't have plans to provide free autoscaling for such events but that's quite a good idea and I will share it on our meetings with the rest of the team!

Is there a guide or reference on what package would be good for which kind of site (nr of visitors etc)? Maybe an idea to have some standard presets that are similar to your webhosting packages? I always struggle to setup this kind of package deals... Lookin forward to the goGeek version!

The custom Packages and Roles functionality doesn't cover resources - they are for the entire account. Ff you take a look at our shared and Cloud hosting pages, you will see rough number of visits each account is suitable for. Note that it greatly depends on the particular website so it is not possible to give a general number of visits per month for example that a hosting account can handle. Then you can split those resources between the number of sites you want to host on that account. I hope that this answers your question :)

I would be doing that exactly, thanks. But I can't seem to find any "number of visits" with the cloud hosting packages. I think that's why I asked this question in the first place, to have some ground of comparison.

These are the services I thought I was getting when I recently upgraded to the reseller plan but I haven't been able to find out how to set client settings or hosting packages anywhere on the site before this post. SMH...

Great feature for our hosting account with you. We have been waiting for this eagerly. It will add extra advantage for our customers wanting to have full control of their hosting account. Now we can also allocate resources better so that one account on server does not take most of the resources. Thank you. J.C.S.L Ltd

what about clients being able to manage their user names and passwords for their employees, etc?

If I udnerstant correctly, you're asking about access to your site. People usually grant this access to websites and organize data access in it.

I just got switched to the new interface.... and so far, "add user" doesnt work on my GrowBig acct, and it seems like Siteground is getting out the Support business? Making near impossible to ask a simple question. Not impressed

Hi, this is great... Can we set the due date for our custom client as well? Eg: Client A will expired on 31 May 2020. Turn it off after 7 days if not activate it.

I am afraid that we don't plan adding such functionality soon. That's more something that should be part of the software you use to bill your customers.
