WebFusion, part of Host Europe PLC, is delighted to announce the launch of MyServerWorld, its innovative successor to the Virtual Control Panel (VCP) pioneered by the company in 1997 and a fundamental step change in the way customers manage their web hosting solutions.
Following a significant development effort by in-house developers, MyServerWorld provides an integrated toolset and a wealth of new features which give customers total control over their web sites.
MyServerWorld builds on the features of the VCP, adding new functionality ranging from HTML and Perl code validation tools to database management, on-line backup management and the ability to monitor bandwidth use. MyServerWorld also includes a range of new CGI scripts such as surveys and quizzes, an easy to use e-commerce shopping cart, and the ability to create and manage up to 500 sub domains. Existing features from the VCP such as web site statistics and web-based e-mail have also been considerably improved in this exciting new technology.
WebFusions network of thousands of resellers in particular will benefit from a fundamental upgrade in the functionality and flexibility provided by MyServerWorld, as the new release allows them to white label and configure their hosting solutions. This means that resellers will have the ability to design their own branded control panel, and set up and manage their own web hosting plans, tailoring exactly which features and settings to offer their customers.
The launch of the new control panel technology coincides with upgrades to all WebFusions web hosting packages, so as well as experiencing the added flexibility and features of MyServerWorld customers will have the benefit of up to 1000MB web space and 10GB monthly data transfer allowance, 99.9% uptime and a 30 day money back guarantee.
Jonathan Brealey, Group Managing Director, commented:
We believe that MyServerWorld represents the most advanced shared web hosting control panel available in the world today. The result of a long period of development, MyServerWorld is the biggest ever upgrade in our shared hosting technology, providing our customers with a huge range of new and easy to use features included within their hosting solutions.
We are particularly excited about the opportunities MyServerWorld provides our ever growing network of resellers, for whom our new features and package upgrades allow them to continue to significantly develop their businesses.
