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. For more information, please visit www.dotster.com.
