Thrive Tracker – Universal Tracking Software for Performance Marketing. The Ultimate Mobile & Web Tracker for All Direct Response Campaigns and Affiliate Marketers.

Thrive Tracker is one of the highly recommended tracking software among CPA marketers and affiliates. It’s a paid software and it is a self-hosted software. You’ll need to host it on a shared hosting account or VPS. Although it will work under shared environment, you are advised to use a VPS.

Have an expert server admin built your server and install Thrive Tracker

Fee to install Thrive on Shared Hosting is $9.99 and you must provide me with logins to your hosting control panel (cPanel). If you don’t have a shared hosting account yet, you can get one from BlueHostGoDaddy or HostPaPa. But if you want to enjoy my VPS configurations, you can buy an optimized hosting package where you’ll get to host your websites on one of my highly optimized dedicated servers.

Thrive tracker required ionCube Loaders to be installed on your server. If you’re going with shared hosting, please contact your hosting provider and ask if ionCube Loaders are enabled on your package.

VPS Configuration

If you’re planning to host Thrive on a VPS, you should provide me with root password and IP address of the server. You can get it from your VPS provider when you buy a VPS. If you don’t have a VPS yet, you can get one from DigitalOcean. Use that link to get $10 startup credit. If you don’t like DigitalOcean, you can use recommended VPS providers or any other provider out there. Please note that I need an UNMANAGED VPS, meaning these’s no control panel or software installed on it. Otherwise Virtualmin and Nginx will not be available to you.

I build web servers keeping speed and security in mind. That’s why I’m only using Ubuntu 16.04 as operating system and Nginx as WebServer. Nginx is 9x faster than Apache2.

I’ll need Ubuntu 16.04 64bit as operating system. Although your Thrive tracker will work fine on a 512MB RAM server, it’s recommended to get at least 1GB RAM. 

My Virtualmin and Nginx configuration is the foundation to a super-fast Thrive installation. I guarantee you will beat any Thrive tracker hosted on an Apache web-server in terms of speed with this configuration. I will be building your server with,

  • Virtualmin Hosting Control Panel v5.04 GPL
  • Nginx v1.10 as webserver
  • PHP v5.6
  • MySQL v5.7
  • Memcache
  • ionCube Loaders

Virtuamin has similar functionality as cPanel. It’s feature rich and fully capable of managing a production server. Most importantly it’s free.

SSL (https) Configuration

Build Visitor Trust by Enabling SSL (https) on your Thrive clicserver. Get an expert System Administrator do the job.

It doesn’t matter if you’re on Shared Hosting, VPS or Dedicated server. My fee will be same for any website. Please also note that the SSL certificate is not included with this product. You must buy it from a certificate issuer. You can follow my instructions to buy an SSL certificate from NameCheap.

Got something to discuss?

Are you successfully running PHP 7 for your Thrive installs? It’s encoded by the ionCube Encoder for PHP 5.3 so not working with PHP 7 for me.
