cPanel Partnership with SiteApps Delivers Innovative App Store Marketplace to Web Hosting Industry

Share Article

Integration of SiteApps into cPanel enables webhosts to easily deploy an app store to help their customers boost traffic, conversions and revenue.

SiteApps has integrated its App Store Marketplace into cPanel, providing web hosting providers with an easily deployable app store that provides any website or blog with single-click access to hundreds of apps to boost traffic, conversions, and site revenue. Google Plus, Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and PayPal are just a few of the social media, ecommerce, analytics and content management apps available in the marketplace.

The integration makes the SiteApps App Store Marketplace immediately available to tens of thousands of webhosts. It creates a new high-volume distribution channel for commercial application service providers and app developers, and provides website owners with access to a huge range of sophisticated apps that they can install in seconds without any coding skills.

“SiteApps is revolutionary technology with global reach that brings webhosts, app developers and end users together in a single marketplace where everyone benefits,” said SiteApps Vice President of Business Development Troy McCasland. “cPanel’s reach in the hosting world means that the benefits will be realizable faster, whether it is an app developer or a commercial application service provider finding new customers, a blogger discovering a new way to engage with her subscribers, or a web host expanding the richness of its hosting platform.”

From Analytics to Action
The SiteApps marketplace leverages Google Analytics to evaluate websites and identify shortcomings and opportunities. The system then suggests fixes by recommending specific marketing, social media, sales, payment and customer service apps available in the marketplace. (Note: While running the analytics evaluation is not required to use SiteApps, it will uncover opportunities and holes often overlooked by site operators and bloggers). Webhosts make money whenever site owners purchase paid apps or upgrade service levels.

“SiteApps has been recognized as one of the most innovative companies in recent years,” added Jim Walker, CEO of TVC.NET, a cPanel webhost with over 10,000 websites. “We are constantly looking for ways to make our hosting better. Our partnership with SiteApps accelerates access to 3rd-party apps, helping websites and blogs bring more visitors to their sites, and convert them into buyers and subscribers. The SiteApps partnership also represents a promising new revenue sharing opportunity for TVC.net.”

How SiteApps Works
Webhosts can integrate SiteApps into their cPanel in seconds. Hosts run a simple GET command to install the SiteApps plugin which updates cPanel and makes the SiteApps icon visible in the web control panel. Website owners using cPanel click on the icon to create a SiteApps account and automatically log-in. SiteApps analyzes their site and recommends improvements. The site owner then easily adds the SiteApps JavaScript tag to their site, which makes single-click installation of any marketplace app possible. Plugins for popular content management systems like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Magento make this easy. A unique SiteApps feature is the flexibility site owners have to configure installed apps. Owners can deliver personalized user experiences by specifying where and when apps appear on their sites, and which users can interact with them.
