Webinoly provides a set of tools and commands that facilitate the web server administration.

The idea is to always have any option to a command away, that is, with a single command you can install and configure your web server, with a single command you can create a new site or with a single command you can completely configure an SSL certificate, among many other options.

In the Quick Setup Guide you will find the basic elements and steps to start your first server in just minutes.

Read our Full Example and Advanced Practical Tutorial for Webinoly as a guide to know in a practical way the use of some common commands for your web server. Also, we have a complete course on Introduction to Web Server Administration, a long read with all the key points to mastering Nginx and servers.

Every aspect of a high-quality web server is covered by Webinoly. Our defaults are awesome, but mastering the details is an essential part for high-skilled and professional people. Enjoy and unleash all the potential!
