Although Web hosting is in its relative infancy, it will likely follow in the footsteps of mature industries: the adoption of automation that generates the efficiencies and economics for sustained growth. The lack of automation has probably played a crucial role in contributing to the hosting industry's current malaise. The 1990s were marked by top-line revenue business models which, with regard to hosting, fostered an over-reliance on hardware and personnel to solve IT issues that could have been solved more prudently and quickly through automation.
If there was a lesson to be learned by the hosting industry from the 1990s, it would probably be that the ability to automate services and channels can make the difference between the surviving and the failing. Through automation, hosting providers can free up IT personnel to focus on customer satisfaction. Regarding the channel, automation provides the billing, self-management and customer-relationship software to reduce churn and increase loyalty.
Plesk, Inc. has been shipping its hosting automation platform, Plesk Server Administrator (PSA), since October 1999 - a mere eight months after the company sought to build a product that solved nagging problems such as reducing customer churn through optimal service, lowering overhead by automating tedious tasks performed by high-paid IT professionals, creating a channel-management model, and accelerating time-to-revenue.
The uptake on PSA was extraordinary, and today more than 600,000 domains are under management in approximately 80 countries.
As a pioneer and leader in hosting automation, Plesk has also gained enormous insight into the needs of its customers and the industry as a whole - a primary competitive advantage over vendors that have entered the marketplace later. Plesk's customer-first philosophy is the foundation for close customer relationships that yield a wealth of feedback about product development and corporate direction.
Given the tumult that has plagued the hosting industry, Plesk is guided by an unwavering vision: dynamic automation is the guiding principle to the design and development of effective products.
While dynamic automation applies to server infrastructures, it is also at the core of the numerous subsystems within current Plesk products; and it will be inherent in future
products as well. This means that Plesk's products all contain the intelligence, modularity and flexibility to target new markets with forward-thinking engineering.
Although Plesk means "splash" in Russian, the company's customers will say it also stands for innovation, reliability, quality and integrity.
