The oDesktop Web Hosting Edition has been remodeled from the original oDesktop ASE (Application Service Edition) to better suit the needs and convenience of the web hosts and their end users. Several major developments are now incorporated. Top on the list is the capability of being installed at the cPanel Add-On or via FTP of the hosting accounts which has greatly simplified and accorded more control of multiple-user accounts to the User Administrator.
Another innovation which will be well received by tech-savvy users is the Web Group sharing function that enable users within the same web host or even differing web hosts to share folders or files, or to collaborate on projects. This pioneering feat is brought about by the people at Comdev Software who were responsible for the ever popular One Admin.
"We came out with the Web Hosting Edition specifically to assist the web hosts in creating value with their current range of products and services," said Bryan Gan, CEO, Comdev Software. "The current scenario on the web reflects the competitive nature of the web hosting business. There is heavy pressure on the pricing while the size of storage space offered rises non-proportionately. This has caused an adverse effect on the margins," he adds.
"It helps to overcome the problem of overselling hosting through fully utilizing and optimizing the web hosting space. This helps avoid space wastage, a common phenomenon in the web hosting industry," said Bryan. "Customer retention and customer satisfaction will now be the prime mover to drive profit and growth in their business instead," he stressed.
With oDesktop WHE, web hosts would be able to bundle the innovative web desktop program with their current storage space offered to the web hosting accounts. The idea is to encourage end users to increase the frequency of usage as well as the utilization of the storage space. This in return, creates customer loyalty as well as opening up opportunities for the web hosts to sell more server space, cross sell products and services, relieve pressure on the margins and at the same time have a sustainable competitive advantage over those who are utilizing the pricing platform as a means to maximize sales.
The built-in applications will ensure that the end users will find plenty of uses for them and have fun at the same time. Currently, the 7 applications consist of oDrive, oPhoto, oMusic, oNetwork, oEmail, oNews and oGames. These applications allow the users to store their data files or photos remotely, so that they are always accessible from anywhere in the world without the need of having to carry the files with them physically. They could be shared or collaborated on, or even be attached in the usual manner with the emailing system. There is the RSS news feed to catch up with the news and event of the world, or they could just sit back and relax with the Flash games. The range of applications will be expanded in due course and end users could look forward to CRM and business applications in the near future.
