July 10, 2007 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Web Hosting Provider Slamdot, Inc. (http://www.slamdot.com), today announced the launch of their new control panel built exclusively on next-generation, Web 2.0 technologies. The company has focused its attention on developing a user-friendly, web-based account management tool that serves as the foundation of its web hosting service.
Slamdot has integrated billing, support, hosting and domain name management into a single AJAX-based tool, requiring only one username and password to access all of its features. The control panel was developed using Ruby on Rails, a stable development framework that allows for swift application development and the ability to quickly implement new features in the future.
Customers are hosted on high-performance CentOS Linux servers, located in SoftLayers award-winning Dallas, Texas datacenter. The companys RAID servers, paired with its incredibly powerful and easy-to-use control panel, are backed by United States-based technical support, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Slamdot is all about integration and ease of use. We set out to build our own ideal hosting environment to address the problems that we personally had experienced with other web hosting companies. We then invited users to try our approach, and the response has been absolutely phenomenal, said Sean Christman, CEO of Slamdot. Our aim is to make web hosting management easier and more likable, without forfeiting features, performance, or reliability.
Were very passionate about our control panel, and we take our support and uptime just as seriously. By working with SoftLayer, were able to provide superior hardware, while maintaining complete control over our servers through their virtual datacenter tools. That means we dont have all of the added costs and aging equipment involved with owning our own datacenter. We pass those savings along to the customer, said Christman.
