What is an Administrator?

An Administrator is someone who spends a non-negligible amount of time managing one or more servers using the WPCloud Deploy plugin.  For small agencies this might be the owner or a developer.  Very large agencies might have two or three folks who spend a decent amount of time dealing with server issues.

If someone uses the plugin once in a while to deal with a server issue, its not a big deal.  But if someone in your organization is using the plugin on a regular basis we respectfully ask that you purchase a license for them.

How many servers can an Administrator manage?

There is no ‘per administrator’ limit.  Every administrator can manage unlimited servers and unlimited Sites under all licenses.
