ServerPilot is a webserver management platform for hosting PHP websites like WordPress on a cloud server. You can think of ServerPilot as a modern, centralized hosting control panel.

ServerPilot does not provide servers. Instead, they make it easy to host PHP sites on your own servers. Those servers can be cloud servers, VPSes, or dedicated servers at any provider.

Skunkworks uses ServerPilot for managing our client’s DigitalOcean servers.
