Superb Adds Parallel's Unrivaled SMB Tool

Award-winning dedicated server and web hosting company Superb Internet added the top-drawer Parallels Small Business Panel to its product line today. Parallels, a worldwide leader in virtualization and automation software, developed the control panel specifically with small-to-medium businesses in mind-extremely cost-effective with exceptional ease of use, the panel streamlines operations and offers one-stop access to programs and applications.

"Parallels has always been a pioneer in software development, consistently innovating game-changing products for the consumer, businesses, and service provider-markets" says William Song, Senior Product Manager at Superb Internet, "The Small Business Panel, which is extremely feature-rich and retains many of the elements of Parallels' popular Plesk Panel, is the latest example of that and we're excited to introduce it to our dedicated server and managed hosting customers."

To introduce the new product, Superb is offering special pricing for the Small Business Panel. "We want to continuously provide the latest and best technology to our valued customers, and we hope to encourage them to take advantage of the Parallels panel by offering it at a competitive price," explains Song. The Parallels Small Business Panel is now available to Superb dedicated server and managed hosting customers starting at $18 per month (regular price $25).
