Some of the reasons people like to use ServerPilot to manage their servers include:

  • Automated server security updates
  • Easily deploying SSL
  • Easily configuring multiple sites on a server
  • Easily changing PHP versions

These are all things you can do manually on a server, but if you’re not familiar with server administration, they can be time consuming, difficult, and potentially risky. So, having ServerPilot handle the server configuration and management makes it much easier for many developers to use DigitalOcean servers for hosting WordPress.
