August 18, 2004

Full Business Life Cycle Hosting Automation Solution Offers Completely Integrated Plesk and Virtuozzo Servers, New Interface, Reseller Enhancements and More

Herndon, VA — August 18, 2004 – Today, SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, announced the public availability of the first release candidate for HSPcomplete 3.0. This latest version is a major upgrade of the most comprehensive full business life-cycle hosting automation solution out of the box. Hosting service providers can use HSPcomplete to run all aspects of their own hosting business. Providers will now be able to offer, provision, bill and manage shared hosting on Plesk servers. The final release of HSPcomplete 3.0 will be available in September 2004.

“Managing a growing hosting business and all of its facets has never been more challenging,” said Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, SWsoft. “We have seen a significant strain being placed on our customers in managing more and more customers and servers. They need a cost effective solution that can help attract, service, upsell and retain all of their customers regardless of service offering.”

"We have been pleased with our decision to select HSPcomplete as our new primary hosting platform,” said Tamara Field, President, Apollo Hosting. “The combination of Virtuozzo and Plesk integrated into HSPcomplete has enabled us to offer a full spectrum of offerings such as shared hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated hosting. Customers can upgrade instantly, as their business or hosting needs grow, with literally no downtime. We really couldn't have stayed ahead of the market the way we have without the help of SWsoft and their powerful line of products.”
