Newark, Delaware – (The Hosting News) – September 4, 2007 – Customers of HostMySite.com web hosting, will now have the option to use a simpler interface to manage Windows servers, through HostMySite’s partnership with creator of Windows-based control panel, the Helm, and software-based systems and services developer, WebHost Automation Ltd.
Helm is considered unique among control panels in that it interacts directly with the services on a server, rather than storing settings in its own database. For example, if a customer were to make changes to IIS, DNS, or email directly on the server, those changes would be reflected in Helm.
According to the company, HostMySite.com’s customers can use Helm to simplify the administration of Windows servers, in addition to Helm’s built in billing system, offering hosting reseller customers with tools to help with management, process transactions, and run the hosting business.
Lou Honick, CEO of HostMySite.com commented, ”HostMySite.com has extensively tested numerous control panel solutions for both Linux and Windows. It is our experience that since Helm was designed specifically for Windows, it has far superior performance on that platform. The product is easy to support and offers a robust control panel solution. We look forward to our ongoing relationship with WebHost Automation and their products.”
Mark Hall, Founder and COO with WebHost Automation Ltd. offered, ”We are excited about partnering with HostMySite.com. By offering Helm with their dedicated servers, HostMySite.com customers now have access to the leading control panel for Microsoft Windows servers. We look forward to working with HostMySite.com to help their customers grow their hosting businesses using Helm.”
