Introducing $50 rebate and new sponsors

Chevereto has been sponsored by hosting companies since 2015, which allowed offering a more appealing approach to self-hosted by providing software license + hosting and only charge for hosting. All this is possible because hosting companies do affiliate marketing: They pay for the customers that you bring them. The software will always need a server that’s why they put money on this.

Today, I’m introducing two changes in the hosting partnerships and what you get back for preferring those who partner with Chevereto.

The first change is that Chevereto now has multiple sponsors, and now you can choose from more offerings and pick the one that meets all your needs based on your budget, server location, add-on services, etc.

The second change is that it now works with a rebate system. You have to purchase the license from Chevereto, and If you buy hosting from our sponsors, you are eligible to receive a $50 refund upon your license purchase.

Welcome, new sponsors!

I’m proud to announce that HostPapa, TMDHosting, and Hostiso are now sponsoring Chevereto.

HostPapa is one of the most popular Canadian web hosting companies, headquartered in Burlington, Ontario. They have been providing hosting services for more than a decade.

TMDHosting has been sponsoring Chevereto for the last three years straight, and they provide hosting solutions since 2007. They have data centers in the USA, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo.

Hostiso is a Germany-based web hosting company. They have data centers in the USA, France, and Singapore.

Introducing new installer with cPanel support

The installer has been re-made (again) and now, set up your own Chevereto based image hosting website is even easier than before. This new version handles all the process and is the recommended method to install Chevereto from now on.

The installer consists of a single PHP file which checks the system integrity, license key check, database check, download, extract and fill in the installation form. You never leave the installer screen when doing the process, and at the end, you get a concise summary of the outcome.

It now supports cPanel and allows to create all the database setup automatically. By doing this, you don’t need to worry about creating the database, database user, and grant permissions. The installer does all this for you.

The result is your image hosting website up and running in seconds, totally hassle-free.

It also includes API access to all its controller actions, which allows crafting all sort of integrations. For example, hosting providers can take advantage of this to provision Chevereto pre-installed.

The installer is Open Source, and it is available at Chevereto/Installer (GitHub).
