iWeb at the cPanel conference in Houston

Published on September 29, 2009 at 3:59 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

cpanelconWe will be going for the first time at the annual conference cPanel will be hosting at Houston from 5th to 7th October 2009. For this opportunity, iWeb will be represented by Simon Boulet, IT Director, and Jean-François Chevrette, IT architecture speclalist.

Like our partners Microsoft and R1Soft, we will be attentive to the conferences covering improvement and new products for cPanel. We want also to know more about Enkompass, the new control panel from cPanel compatible with Windows and IIS7, and at the same time ask questions to engineers who developed this software.

Did you know that…

- the first customer who used cPanel in a iWeb dedicated server was on 10th September 2004?
- our control panel PanelBox for our shared hosting offering uses at its core cPanel?
- migrating from a competing control panel to cpanel is free (an offer by cPanel)?
- we offer cPanel licensing for our colocation customers, or if the server is not even hosted at iWeb?
- you can contact for free cPanel if you have problems with your control panel?

If you want more info on the cPanel conference on their website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter..

If you want to meet Simon or Jean-François at the cPanel conference, please leave a comment on this post and we will get you in touch with them.
