Global Web Control Panel (GWCP) is one of the finest, most user-friendly and secure web-based control panels that exist in the internet today. The GWCP is now available with all GlobalFront hosting, virtual server and dedicated server accounts. It offers the account owner a set of powerful, web-based account management tools without requiring any programming background on the part of the account owner. Developed by GlobalFront to meet its own client needs, the GWCP allows you to setup, manage, and update several features related to email alias, email redirection, autoresponders, mailing lists, listservers, list subscribers, and password protected web directories for your account, all with a "point-and-click interface" accessible with your browser from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, in real time.
The Global Web Control Panel comes with several features:
Security: The GWCP uses several security features, including but not limited to, checking and validating input, host, domain, URL, server and login information. Also, when installed in your account, it uses fully encrypted password to make sure that your account is fully secure, and that it can only be accessed by you or your authorized administrator. In case you forget or misplace your password, you can have your password information sent to your preferred email address 24 hours a day, by visiting our Instant Password Finder.
More Features: We are continuously working
on several additional features that we plan to add to GWCP in future. We hope to provide
upgrades to our clients when new features become available. This page will be updated with
additional feature information as and when new GWCP features are released. Also, please
check out the specific hosting and server
information pages for information on many other features that are not part of GWCP but are
already available with various accounts.
Q. Are all the setup and update actions executed in real time?
A. Yes. Any modification to the account features are saved and updated in the server instantly or in a matter of seconds. However, depending on the server load, for some features it may take upto 3 minutes of time for the changes to go into effect in our system.
Q. I am planning to order a new hosting or virtual server account from GlobalFront. Would you install the GWCP when you setup my account?
A. Yes. If you are ordering a Basic, Value, Business, Standard or Reseller account, or a dedicated server from us, then we will install GWCP in your account. The GWCP will be installed and activated once your domain name starts pointing to your new account, irrespective of if you are moving an existing domain name or registering a new domain name.
Q. I have a virtual server account from GlobalFront for a very long time. You had setup my account long before you released GWCP. Can you install GWCP for my account now?
A. Yes. We have developed GWCP in-house to cater to the need of our web hosting clients. We have decided to make the GWCP available with all of our hosting accounts, virtual servers and dedicated servers. If you are an existing client, then you can request for installation of the GWCP by using our add-on order form. For existing customers, the installation will be on a "first-requested, first-served" basis. There is no charge for this installation. Please Note that if your account was setup before January, 1999, depending on the setup you had, a change in ip address and/or DNS record may or may not be required for GWCP to work properly. However, your web site won't experience any downtime during this change or installation. Please contact us with your account information and we will be able to provide you with more specific information.
Q. I am a reseller of GlobalFront. Is it possible to get a customized version of GWCP for use of our clients?
A. Yes. As a reseller of GlobalFront hosting services, you can request for a customized version with your own logo, preferred background color, background image, and your own business name on every page of the control panel! The customized control panel will have no reference to GlobalFront in any of its unlimited dynamically generated pages that are displayed by the control panel during interactive execution.
Q. What is the license agreement for GWCP? Are you giving it for free to your clients?
A. GWCP is a proprietary software developed and copyrighted by GlobalFront. We do NOT give away the software. We allow you to use the software in any hosting, virtual or dedicated server that you rent from us, for as long as you keep your account in good standing. The license agreement specifically says: "This software is a property of GlobalFront. Unauthorized reproduction, installation, use or distribution of this software or any portion of it, may result in severe civil and criminal penalties, and will be prosecuted to the maximum extent possible under the law."
Q. I am from another hosting company or ISP. We are looking for a tool like this for our clients. Is GWCP compatible with all servers? Do you sell the control panel to other ISPs?
A. The GWCP was developed primarily for
the Linux/UNIX based virtual and dedicated servers that we offer to our clients. Currently
the GWCP uses some configuration information customized to GlobalFront server settings
which may be different from the server you are running. However, it is possible on our
part to modify and customize the software for other servers. If you would like to license
it for multiple virtual or dedicated servers hosting several domains, and you have the
access to the key server files that control the setup and configuration of accounts, then
please feel free to contact us with your full
name, email address, company name, URL, number of domains for which you are seeking the
license, and your server configuration information. We would need to take a look
at your server(s) before we can give you a quote for customization and licensing of GWCP.
If you have any question or concern about GWCP, then please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
