By Karen Bayley

Cloud services enablement leader, Parallels, today announced the availability of Parallels Plesk Panel 10, the industry leading control panel that enables service providers to easily deliver the most profitable services to their hosting customers. With more than 100 new features Parallels Plesk Panel 10 includes key improvements in user interface, breadth of applications, density for VPS environments, and Site Building capability.

As small businesses continue to increase their adoption of hosting and Cloud based services, industry providers continue to look for ways to launch new services, expand their existing service offerings, and reduce the churn in their business. With Parallels Plesk Panel 10, VPS providers can now offer a special VPS-optimised version of Parallels Plesk Panel that is 20-40% more efficient than the competition.

Two components are now bundled at no charge into the product: Parallels SiteBuilder - which gives SMBs access to an easy wizard to build a website and update website content, and Customer and Business Manager - which gives hosters a completely integrated billing, ordering and payment processing solution.

'We've looked at some of the key audiences using Parallels Plesk Panel - shared web hosters, web designers, and SMBs, and Parallels Plesk Panel 10 is an absolute game changer for them,' said Jack Zubarev, President of Marketing and Alliances at Parallels. 'With this new version, Parallels reduces the complexity involved in running a hosting business, enables seamless access to commercial applications through Partner Storefront, and delivers some powerful enhancements to the user interface such as power-user mode.'

'Parallels Panel 10 opens up exciting new functionality for web hosting and platform service providers worldwide. Here at AussieHQ we are excited about Parallels Plesk Panel 10 because our virtual private and virtual dedicated server customers will be able to see a dramatic shift in how they manage their online realm,' says Michael McGoogan, Chief Executive Officer of 'The role-based access ensures that each user gets the information they need in the fastest possible time. It helps with the rapid deployment of hosting services and provides for greater management efficiencies.'

Go Daddy, the world's largest domain name registrar and leading Web hosting provider with more than 44 million domain names in its portfolio, is now offering Parallels Plesk Panel 10 to its customers.

"Many of Go Daddy's 8.5 million customers are small businesses who want to leverage the Internet to improve their business," said Warren Adelman, Go Daddy President and Chief Operating Officer. "The Cloud Services we offer with Parallels Plesk Panel 10 make it easy for administrators to manage their online businesses more efficiently."
