Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – June 28, 2007 – Server virtualization firm, SWsoft, has instituted new features in its Sitebuilder software, including promotional footers and single-sign-on capabilities for providers, as well as a file download module, one-click publishing, and Google Maps technology for end users.
According to the company, service providers may generate more revenue with new software from SWsoft, as customers ad promotional material to their websites. The newly released SWsoft Sitebuilder 4.0 Single-Sign-On (SSO) technology, is designed to enable service providers to administer Sitebuilder service plans using a single login and password. The latest release of Sitebuilder now has 12 dynamic modules, including a new File Download Module that enables site owners to easily add files to their websites, such as PDF files, documents and spreadsheets. Also, the Area Map Module was enhanced with Google Maps technology, which lets users embed interactive Google Maps in their sites and get driving directions to and from a specific address.
Joakim Frid, CEO of Crystone offered, ”We worked closely with SWsoft to develop the Promotional Footers feature in this release of Sitebuilder./ With this feature, we can add our own custom tagline to each customerâ€™s website, increasing our overall market exposure. We can also offer our customers optional service plans based on how much of our promotional material they are willing to allow on their sites.”

â€¢ Promotional Footers â€“ Add company name or other promotional material on each customerâ€™s published website.
â€¢ SSO Support â€“ Gain full access to all Sitebuilder capabilities with unified credentials through the SWsoft Plesk administration console.
