Web hosting provider Dotster announced on Wednesday that it has launched its “new and improved” hosting Application Vault.
Dotster says Application Vault, which is available at no extra cost with all of its hosting plans, enables customers to install and upgrade over 30 common open source applications from their control panel, like blogging, e-commerce, content management, photo sharing and project management tools.
Some of the specific applications available for download with Application Vault include WordPress, OSCommerce, Joopla and DotProject.
Besides managing the installation, the Application Vault also manages latest version updates and automatic security patches, says Dotster.
“Dotster’s new and improved Application Vault helps our customers easily install popular applications for both their business and personal sites,” says Clint Page, CEO Dotster. “Many customers don’t realize that they can install and leverage these programs with little effort and have the ability to blog, conduct e-commerce, build intranets and more from their own websites.”
Application Vault marks the third new value-added service Dotster has launched in the last two months. Last week, Dotster announced it is offering EmailBrain, a new tool for creating, managing, sending and tracking newsletters and email campaigns.
