Herndon, VA — July 26, 2004 – Supporting the growing demand for Windows hosting worldwide, SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, today announced the full production release of Plesk 7 for Windows. Plesk 7 for Windows is a major new release of the award-winning Plesk control panel and incorporates feedback from thousands of customers, partners and Beta testers worldwide.

“SWsoft has created positive momentum for Windows hosting with Plesk for Windows and other automation solutions for hosting providers,” said Eric Feagler, lead product manager, Microsoft Corporation. “We are excited that Plesk 7 for Windows will add yet another spark for Web hosting providers enabling them to upgrade their existing Windows hosting services or introduce new hosting packages on the Windows platform.”

According to a recent Netcraft Web Server Survey, 2.1 million hostnames were running on Windows 2003, with a gain of 390K hostnames in the previous month.

"We have continued to see significant growth in demand for our Windows hosting products and find that the security, stability and ease-of-use of Plesk brings real value as a control panel solution," says Robb Allen, CEO of DataPipe. "After participating in beta testing, we found that Plesk 7 for Windows has many rich features such as complete integration with Windows technologies, AutoUpdater, Trouble Ticketing, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam and other valuable features not offered by other control panels."

    What one can learn from this experience.<br />
    <br />
    The reason paysystem was shut down is because Duetche bank with whom they were processing pulled the rug from beneath them.<br />
    <br />
    They only had one bank on their back end.<br />
    <br />
    This episode shouldnt condemn all the other 3rd party accounts, however if you are thinking of signing up with another 3rd party, make sure they have more than one bank to process with.<br />
    <br />
    There are a few out there, though not many.<br />

    If you are a victim of Paysystems, you can contact a lawyer either in the US or Canada and they can help you get back your funds, this is unacceptible what they are doing and they can and must give all monies back to the rightful person.
