(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – At cPanel Conference 2011, cPanel announced that it would begin bundling Attracta SEO tools within cPanel & WHM®. On March 13, 2012, cPanel launched a special site (go.cPanel.net/Attracta/ ) dedicated to partners wishing to gain full access to the upcoming features.
Attracta SEO tools are scheduled for release to the cPanel & WHM EDGE tier at the beginning of April with availability in the CURRENT tier later in the month.
“As we launch a major new feature set within the cPanel & WHM product, we want to make sure we provide server owners and hosting providers with all the details on this integration,” said Aaron Phillips, vice president of operations at cPanel.
Attracta will become a standard feature within cPanel & WHM, with the ability to instantly turn it off or on (by default, Attracta will be on).
The Attracta features in cPanel & WHM provide easy sitemap creation, submission, and even professional SEO services to take over where automation leaves off.
Hosting providers will also enjoy a revenue-sharing opportunity and direct co-branding relationship with Attracta.
“It was important to cPanel that we not be a middleman, and instead allow hosting providers the distinct ability to gain their full revenue sharing directly from Attracta,” said Phillips.
In addition to providing integrated SEO tools to website owners using cPanel & WHM, Attracta also provides professional services at affordable prices to help website owners gain further traction and traffic to their websites. Attracta has provided over 1.5 million websites with a set of SEO tools to help get the websites crawled and immediately included in search engine results.
Attracta is currently used by hundreds of top hosting providers including HostGator, BlueHost, HostDime, BrainHost, UK2.Net, and HostPapa.
“We were looking for an easy-to-use solution to help our clients obtain more traffic to their websites, and Attracta was a perfect fit,” Brent Oxley, of HostGator Web Hosting, explained when asked why HostGator chose Attracta.
“They have an easy integration into the cPanel API, and an automated, free setup that takes our clients step by step through the process,” Oxley added.
“Attracta has helped our clients increase traffic to their websites,” Oxley continued. “As a host, it has helped us extend the life of our clients, while also adding an additional revenue stream.”
