The Planet Selects Leading Control Panel Software and Virtual Hosting Solutions from SWsoft.

Herndon, VA, April 6, 2004 – SWsoft, the world’s leading provider of hosting software, today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with The Planet Internet Services, Inc. to market, promote and sell SWsoft products and solutions including Plesk for Windows and Plesk for Linux and UNIX to its customer base of small, medium and large enterprise companies.

The Planet is a leading provider of managed hosting and Internet infrastructure services ranging from co-location, bandwidth, hardware rental and network expertise, to administrative expertise and consulting.

"Joining forces with SWsoft allows us to streamline our server management process, increase productivity and provide highly-available, innovative Internet services,” said Peter Pathos, president and CEO of The Planet. “We’ve seen strong demand from our customers to expand our control panel offering to Plesk, SWsoft’s advanced control panel functionality. Now, The Planet is well-equipped to support our customers’ sophisticated and basic hosting and Internet needs today and well into the future.”

As an SWsoft partner and reseller of Plesk, The Planet hopes to cut costs and reduce support calls across its server management arm. Plesk gives administrators the ability to manage both primary and secondary server applications through an easy-to-use Web interface. With SWsoft’s leading control panel software, The Planet administrators can assign management resellers, domain administrators and mail users from the simple control panel.

The latest release of Plesk 7 is equipped with new features like SpamAssassin, an ergonomic XP-like Interface, custom button and skin management, a sub-domain manager, a multi-level trouble ticketing system and an “Application Vault” allowing point and click installation for hundreds of applications.

"As one of the most respected and well-recognized managed service providers in the industry today, The Planet is an ideal partner and reseller of SWsoft applications," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "With Plesk and Virtuozzo, The Planet should continue to attract new customers with centralized server management capabilities and ground-breaking virtual hosting capabilities that are second to none.”
