ServerAvatar was first released on 2nd July 2016, and it was free to use for anyone. We provided services for free for one year. On 2nd July 2017, we made ServerAvatar a paid service. Since then, we ServerAvatar didn’t have a free plan at all.
ServerAvatar also didn’t have a free trial so that new users can try our system first before actually purchasing the package blindly. We figured it out and we wanted to let users try our system for free before making an actual purchase.
So, we came up a Free Forever plan. Other than Free Forever plan, we also have two paid plans called Newbie and Pro. In this article, we will go through the features you will get in Free Forever plan as well as what you can do with the help of this plan.
The most interesting and demanded plan is Free Forever plan. So, let us tell you more about this plain in detail.
Free Forever Plan
As the name says this plan is free to use and there are no limits on how long you want to use this plan. You can use this plan forever for free. In this plan, you will be able to manage one server with unlimited websites and Unlimited databases.
The server is configured same as it is configured in paid plans which means that you will get the same level of basic optimization and configuration a user gets with any of the paid plans.
In free forever plan, you can manage unlimited websites and unlimited databases on your server. There is no limit on the number of sites and databases you manage on your server in Free Forever plan too.
One feature that makes this plan precious is Live Resource usage information which means you will be able to see how much resources are being used on the server. If it’s really hard to understand, here is how the Server Panel in Free Forever plan looks like.
Here you can see Memory usage, Disk usage and Server load average on the server panel. The values given in those cards is accurate and live. It is updated every time a Server Panel is loaded. You can also refresh it manually by clicking on the Refresh icon given on the top-right corner of the card.
One more feature that is important but not used widely is Database users management. With the free plan, you also get unlimited Database users management. You can create multiple users for a single database if multiple applications need access to the same database.
Free Forever plan also has WordPress Auto-installer using which you can install WordPress on your VPS in seconds. Again, there are no limits on how many times you install WordPress using Auto-installer. Even if you want to setup 100 WordPress sites on the single VPS, you can.
Here is how you can install WordPress in ServerAvatar’s Free Forever plan. Considering you already have your server connected with ServerAvatar, Click on the Applications given on the sidebar and then click on the Create application button given on the top-right corner of the card. You can also use Add button given on the top navbar.
You will see a form with 2 fields and one dropdown. First, enter the application name and domain/subdomain of the application. From the Application type drop-down, select WordPress just like the following image.
Once you have entered all the information needed to install WordPress, click on the Create application button and your WordPress website will be ready in seconds.
The only drawback of the Free Forever plan is you don’t get direct support using support tickets or live chat. However, in Newbie and Pro plans, you do get live support as well as support through tickets and those plans have too much more to offer than Free Forever plan.
