Getting Started with HostLaunch

HostLaunch is an automated platform for running your own hosting company. Here are some things to keep in mind when setting up your hosting company with HostLaunch.

  • You should create ServerPilot and DigitalOcean accounts specifically for HostLaunch. This will prevent issues of accidentally modifying/destroying HostLaunch-created servers and sites.
  • The currency you choose for your server pricing is permanent, so choose carefully. If you want to change the currency later, you will need to create a new account.
  • Third-party service fees are not included in your HostLaunch bill; you will be charged for these services like normal. Required third-party services include ServerPilot, DigitalOcean, Stripe, and SendGrid.

You will need to connect these third-party services to HostLaunch in order to start selling servers to customers. Here are some articles to help you connect these services to HostLaunch:
