Plesk 7 Reloaded Now Available to Hosting Companies Worldwide

Major New Version Launched with New Interface, Plesk AntiVirus by Dr. Web®, Auto Upgrade, Migration Manager and More

Herndon, VA — July 15, 2004 – Today, SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, announced the full production release of Plesk 7 Reloaded. Plesk 7 Reloaded is a major product release that incorporates suggestions and feedback from hundreds of customers and Beta testers worldwide. The award-winning control panel offers more than 50 new powerful features for hosting providers and end users alike.

“This latest version of Plesk focuses on vital enhancements that our community has demanded but are not available through other control panels on the market,” Travis Schaffner, CTO, “Plesk 7 Reloaded takes a giant step forward in overall scalability and compatibility with our system, and we're looking forward to an increasing presence of Reloaded in our production environments."

Switching to Plesk Now Easier Than Ever

Used by more hosting service providers than any other control panel software, Plesk 7 and now Plesk Reloaded dramatically simplify the management of Linux, FreeBSD, UNIX and Windows servers. With Plesk 7 Reloaded’s built-in and fully functional Migration Manager, hosting providers can painlessly migrate from older versions of Plesk, in-house systems and cPanel, Ensim or Cobalt control panels.

“One of our core strengths has always been our development team constantly retooling and reloading our solutions with new capabilities and rigorously testing them,” said Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, SWsoft. “Plesk 7 Reloaded provides an even cleaner and easier to use interface, Plesk Anti-Virus powered by the award-winning Dr. Web, the highly anticipated Auto Upgrade component and a host of other features. In addition, hosting providers can take advantage of deeper integration with our other products such as Virtuozzo and HSPcomplete.”
