This includes only automation plugin and API which will have to be called from your frontend site if you decide to do it. It also allows to create instances directly from manager interface. This plugin does not include frontend site, you will have to make integration with API by yourself. This plugin is dedicated for web agencies and some experience with programming is required. If you will need commercial support during installation and configuration you can order commercial support, or ask help in google forum.

How does it works?

You will have manager interface where you can create instances for your clients

Yes I do. 600$ single time fee. SSH logins will have to be provided. Permission to remove meta tag is not included in the price although combining these two I can make some significant discount. I also suggest to take a look at this commercial offer. This offer also includes NodeJS extension installation also Co-Browsing NodeJS installation.

Some settings in default version are stored in settings.ini.php file won't there be a mess if multiple users will edit settings/settings.ini.php file

Extension avoids this problem by storing custom user settings in their own instances and their database. There is not going any settings/settings.ini.php modifications after installation.

I have update translations in my language but i still see english?
