Springs Hosting Deploys New Windows Shared Hosting Servers Based on Enkompass by cPanel
Colorado Springs, CO; May 2nd, 2011, Springs Hosting, a leading provider of Managed IT Services for medium to large businesses, announced today that it has deployed Enkompass by cPanel and has officially added the Windows-based hosting product to its growing list of web and email hosting services.
In development for more than a year, Enkompass is built to run on Microsoft Windows Server® 2008 R2 and represents the latest additon to cPanel’s growing suite of web hosting control panels and automation solutions, which have previously focused exclusively on Linux – and FreeBSD – based servers.
“We’ve been working with several windows hosting platforms and selected Enkompass as our primary shared windows platform after several months of testing,” said Kelly Karnetsky of Springs Hosting. “Because our customers are already familiar with the cPanel/WHM interface there is only a slight learning curve for customers that require windows hosting for ASP.NET applications and Microsoft SQL Server 2008. We would like to thank all of our beta testers for their time and solid testing of Enkompass which has profoundly contributed to its successful launch by Springs Hosting!”
“Microsoft has shown a strong commitment to the hosting industry over the past several years,” said cPanel CEO J. Nick Koston. “Our Windows development team feels that Microsoft IIS7 offers a robust, high-performance web server, with increased security, that the industry will quickly adopt. Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and IIS7, with its modern architecture and support for legacy products was the natural starting point for our expanded product offering.”
