All feedback, especially about bugs, is greatly appreciated. All issues reguarding functionality will be looked at and fixed as quickly as possible. My goal is to provide the best possible management software I can and I realize that in the mass of code I may miss a bug or typo here and there. All bug reports are taken very seriously even if they are only cosmetic. Feel free to post them on the forum or email them to redragon at


There are some sites out there pretending to be representatives of this project.

Information and help for this project is only available from 3 locations that are sanctioned by the project author: (here)

Do not download software from any location not listed on one of the above listed sites and do not trust any site claiming to be part of the Hosting Helper project if they are not listed on this site.

What is Hosting Helper?

Hosting Helper is a web hosting management package.
It is distributed under the GNU GPL (General Public License) Agreement.
This package provides tools to manage many of the aspects of a hosting environment.
It also provides a client utility to reduce the need for staff to perform tasks that a client needs such as managing email accounts.

Hosting Helper will support multiple servers from a single adminstration console and single client console. The system is completely dynamic tracking resource allocations across all managed servers. The system will operate on a single server or a completely distributed network of many machines.

We are currently conducting backend tests to try and find the upper limit of the softwares capabilities.

Running on an MySQL database (4.x or greater recommended) we have setup test beds with 200,000 domain accounts and exceeding 3,000,000 service tickets and had no sign if any performance hits do to volume of the backend database.

We will continue these tests to try and provide accurate information about the capabilities of Hosting Helper.
