With iTools, web-hosting providers can automate hosting tasks and delegate administration, empowering customers and lowering support costs. Sub-administrators can manage their own name or IP-based web sites and view their own logs, without compromising the privacy of the multi-server machine. iTools' secure, domain-specific, browser-based Apache administration makes Apache on Mac OS X, the easiest Apache in the world to administer.
iTools' sophisticated, in-depth, browser-based GUI includes URL rewriting, URL redirection, MIME type and Apache handler editing, SSL set-up, along with a host of other Apache-specific settings. The new iTools 8.0.4 includes Apache 2, proFTPD with TLS/SSL support, DNS management, sub-administration, and a suite of pre-packaged, pre-configured open-source applications for blogs, discussion boards, photo albums, and more. In addition, iTools 8 includes the ability to disable and enable a web site with one click, for customers in arrears, the ability to hand-tailor a default web site template to make setting up similar sites easy and fast, optional use of encryption during browser-based configuration sessions, the flexibility to restart various server daemons either manually or automatically upon configuration changes, FastCGI support, cron job management, MySQL administration via phpMyAdmin, WebDAV support, extensive log viewing options on a virtual host-by-virtual host basis, and an automatic system update facility both for iTools updates and updates to add-on packages.
iTools 8 is $349. The companion mail server, Post.Office, and web-based mail client, WEBmail, are available in special iTools bundle for $999. The iTools update is free for existing iTools 8 customers. Upgrades for iTools customers with older versions are $249. iTools can be used with Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4), Panther (Mac OS X 10.3) and works equally well on Mac OS X 'client' or Mac OS X Server.
