HelmSWsoft, maker of the well-known Plesk control panel, has just announced the acquisition of its British competitor WebHost Automation Ltd, creator of Helm, a control panel for Windows. SWsoft’s goal is to offer a wider variety of products to its customers and to invest the British and South-American markets. It seems SWsoft is positioning itself to better compete cPanel which has recently announced for 2008 a Windows version of its control panel.

The American company, which had bought the Ensim Pro product line last September, has already announced it would continue to support the Helm control Panel, which implies that iWeb will continue to offer and support Helm.

Published on December 11, 2007 at 3:38 pm by iWeb-Olivier in: Web Development Articles, iWeb Articles

Las VegasThe “User Experience 2007” conference was held last week in Las Vegas. For the occasion, some members of iWeb’s development team were there with the objective of perfecting their knowledgeof web design and usability standards.

Even if some developers were surprised by the legal age needed to drink and gamble, everyone had the chance to appreciate Las Vegas’ many ways of siphoning their money.

Many concepts learned at the conference will be used by iWeb’s coders, such as some good practices in user testing, creating templates, and in pattern design. We will use this new knowledge to ensure that the forthcoming new elements on our site will be even more effective in terms of accessibilty and design.
