HostDime announced today its new Enkompass hosting packages for Windows 2008 servers. The new Enkompass Windows hosting control panel provides a similar look and feel as cPanel’s existing Linux hosting control panel, making it easier for customers to migrate to the new platform.
“cPanel has been working on this release for over 3+ years and we are proud to be the first managed web hosting company to launch Windows 2008 hosting plans with Enkompass and welcome new customers to host with us,” said Manny Vivar, CEO of HostDime. “We are always looking for ways to offer innovative tools and technologies to our customers. New and existing customers will appreciate our attention to implementing the latest technologies to help them succeed online.”
HostDime is one of cPanel’s largest customers in terms of volume licensing and has been working closely with the cPanel team to develop features and functionality customers can use in a Windows hosting environment. Customers familiar with cPanel will be able to quickly start using the Enkompass Windows hosting control panel as the interface looks almost identical to the Linux version cPanel.
“Many existing Linux Hosting clients have expressed interest in offering Windows hosting for their use and to their clients. However, they have always been hesitant about
pursuing Windows hosting since they were not familiar with pre-existing Windows based control panels,” said Vivar. “With their familiarity of cPanel, customers can easily move to HostDime’s Windows hosting services without having to learn a new interface.”
cPanel’s new control panel Enkompass is designed specifically for Windows server 2008 and utilizes Microsoft IIS7. With Enkompass Windows hosting control panel, customers can run multiple technologies on the same box. Multiple technologies include ASP, .NET, PHP, PERL, FLASH, MSSQL, and Silverlight. Customers no longer have to run multiple boxes to support all the technologies and programming languages they use every day.
“Customers will be able to utilize more programming languages than previously offered – all through the new Enkompass control panel,” said Vivar. “Web developers want the ability to utilize all programming languages on one hosting platform that supports all the latest technologies. HostDime offers that support with our new Enkompass Windows web hosting services.”
HostDime is offering free cPanel Enkompass trial accounts until January 1, 2010. New and existing HostDime customers are encouraged to sign up to experience the latest in Windows hosting control panel software and test the various programming languages supported by Windows 2008.
