Largest Dedicated Service Provider Leverages Plesk for Linux/Unix and Windows; Rich Features, Broad Platform Support and Industry Leading Low Support Costs Cited

Houston, TX and Herndon, VA— September 1, 2004 – Today, EV1 Servers, the world’s largest and fastest growing dedicated hosting service provider with more than 20,000 servers, announced that it has selected Plesk as its preferred control panel for its hosting customers. Plesk is developed by SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, and delivers industry leading stability, scalability and security control panels for both the Linux/Unix and Windows platforms.

“Plesk has been a key part of EV1’s Web hosting offering since 2001,” according to Robert Marsh, CEO and Head Surfer of EV1Servers. “We have selected Plesk as our control panel of choice because it’s a dependable product that has all the innovative features and ease-of-use we look for in a control panel. Our long-term relationship with SWsoft has not only benefited our customers but also lowered EV1Servers’ total support costs.”

SWsoft Offers the Best of Both Worlds: Linux and Windows Control Panels
Introduced in July 2004, Plesk 7 Reloaded and subsequently Plesk 7 for Windows have been steadily selected by leading hosting service providers worldwide. Used on more than 60,000 servers and by 8 of the top 10 global service providers, the Plesk control panel dramatically simplifies the management of Linux/Unix and Windows-based servers. Proven through years of professional production usage, Plesk is considered the industry benchmark for managing dedicated and shared server environments.

With Plesk’s built-in and fully functional Migration Manager, hosting providers can painlessly migrate from older versions of Plesk, in-house systems and competitive control panels.

“We are excited that such a prominent hosting provider has distinguished Plesk as the preferred control panel for its customers,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. “Plesk continues to be a launching pad for hosting providers to empower their customers with its ease-of-use and full feature set.
