Dotster Adds Powerful cPanel/WHM Control Panel to VPS


All Plans Include Unlimited Domain Hosting with Separate Control Panels, Web Analytics, and Seamless Installation of WordPress and Other Popular Software

Dotster, Inc., one of the world's largest ICANN-accredited domain registration and Web hosting companies, today announces it has added cPanel/WHM (Web Hosting Manager) software to its Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting services. Dotster's affordable and easy to manage cPanel VPS plans start at only $49.95 per month. 

Linux-based cPanel is the most popular control panel on the market today because it provides an impressive array of features without sacrificing ease of use. Even first-time Web site builders can create hosting for domains, add e-mail accounts, and create databases in less than two minutes. Creating advanced multi-level reseller accounts is just as easy. 

All of Dotster's VPS plans are powered by Virtuozzo, which partitions physical servers into virtual private servers so that a VPS performs and executes just like a dedicated server. Each VPS is allocated a specific amount of CPU, memory, and disk space. Virtuozzo's partitioning allows Dotster VPS customers to reboot their server independently and provides true administrator-level access (also known as root access). 

Root access gives customers control over what software to install on their VPS. To make this software installation effortless, Dotster integrated the Fantastico De Luxe one-click application installer into the control panel for all cPanel VPS hosting plans.

The wildly popular Fantastico De Luxe allows website owners to install dozens of open-source programs like WordPress and Drupal in seconds. The speed of the process is startling given that Fantastico De Luxe even creates the necessary databases and directories-tasks that took hours to complete in the not-so-distant past. 

True to its roots as a discount provider, Dotster's VPS plans with cPanel technology are affordable, particularly for customers who host more than three domains. The cPanel VPS plans let customers save more money as they host more domains. 

Dotster offers three cPanel VPS plans, all of which include unlimited domains, unlimited mailboxes, and unlimited MySQL databases. The plans run on the Linux CentOS operating system and support the PHP and Perl programming languages. Dotster also includes Web analytics tools that provide dozens of relevant website statistics such as unique visits, referring domains, and search engine keywords used to find a Web site. 

The standard cPanel plan begins at just $49.95 per month with an annual contract and includes 10 Gigabytes of disk space, 256 Megabytes of memory, 500 Gigabytes of bandwidth, and one dedicated IP address. The cPanel Pro plan begins at $59.95 per month and includes 20 Gigabytes of disk space, 256 Megabytes of memory, 1,000 Gigabytes (or one Terabyte) of bandwidth, and two dedicated IP addresses. The cPanel Premium plan begins at $69.95 per month and includes 50 Gigabytes of disk space, 512 Megabytes of memory, 2,000 Gigabytes (or two Terabytes) of bandwidth, and four dedicated IP addresses.
With nearly three million Internet domains, Dotster is one of the largest ICANN-accredited domain name registration and website hosting companies in the world. Launched in 2000, Dotster was among the first to offer long-term domain registrations and discounted pricing. Customers now turn to Dotster for its ability to deliver marketable domain names, Web site building tools, Web analytics tools and reliable Web hosting. They specialize in providing affordable, quality service to hosting resellers, bulk domain name buyers, and developers who require virtual private servers (VPS) and other high-end hosting services.
