Offer Staging Without Depleting Live Resources

Enabling traditional staging solutions doubles the resources required on your live servers. (Or, in other words, it cuts the potential accounts per server in half...)

s4h allows you to separate all staging environments from your live resources. Now you can create hardware strategies based on your actual business needs.


Easily Integrate Our Plug & Play Platform

In addition to separating your resources, the staging4hosters platform is self hosted (VMs you can grow or shrink based on demand - after all, we promised you control). This gives you even more ability to fine tune your resource planning and limits the dependencies you have to rely on.

Your customers connect to the s4h platform through a cPanel plugin allowing you to include/exclude s4h on a cPanel package level. This gives you the flexibility to taylor your services based on your business goals and not just popular demand.

When it comes to account management and billing, you don't have to worry. We built a WHMCS module that integrates into your existing workflow, manages billing automatically, and removes all the manual labor or guess work.

Best of all, s4h is designed to be white labeled allowing you to run it transparently as an integral part of your brand.


Give Your Clients The Ability To Control Access Permissions

All of us want control over the access to our development sites.

We understand the business need for this feature as we struggled with it daily. Imagine a web agency with many clients that wants to segment the access to various outsourcing teams. Without comprehensive ACL (Access Control List) this need cannot be met.

We offer multi user and role based ACL on a per-site basis.


Benefit From A Large Collection of Built-In Tools

We are delivering a full set of tools making the integration of our software as seamless as possible.

In addition to the core versioning capabilities we have file and database management plus a built-in code editor.

The publishing process can be fine-tuned (db table inclusions/exclusions, etc.) and includes various review tools.

All of this in a containerized environment which offers significant security advantages.

We are constantly updating our software and will support additional CMSs. If you don't see your CMS here, contact us with any question or request and we will let you know what your chances are.

In addition, it is important to understand that certain functionality and some of the built-in tools are CMS specific. We assume that this is obvious but wanted to make sure it is spelled out.

All the information on this website is about a generic use-case. We recommend talking to us about any business needs you might have. We love to learn about specific business cases and can provide you with insights into how we've solved some of the more obscure hosting needs we have come across.

Founders Corner

Both Eli and Javi ran successful web agencies for many years. While Eli's company was in the U.S. and Javi's agency in Europe they faced the same issue - providing staging environments for customer sites.

Of course there are many services out there but none of them solved all of the requirements. The requirements were:

  • Live site performance can't be affected (this was the primary deterrent for most services which were tested)
  • The workflow and interface had to be as simple as possible (both agencies had clients who wanted to update their sites but weren't technically advanced)
  • It had to be able to separate customers and the sites they could access
  • Integration with established workflow and tools had to be seamless (FTP/SSH connectivity, etc.)

Javi and Eli joined forces and created a staging platform for internal use. Once the proof of concept was created and implemented they asked themselves why not to offer it commercially?

After some deliberation and feedback from hosting companies staging4hosters was built with the capability to be white labeled. Two pricing strategies were devised so that businesses can benefit from the solution it provides.

We created this platform in order to bridge the gap between customer demand, business needs and profitability. Our solution worked for us so we decided to make it available to everyone.

Waking up in the morning and working with new technologies, coming up with new solutions to various business needs of hosting companies, combined with a glass of cold sparkling water... Is there anything better than this?
