Cheyenne, WY, January 1, 2014 – For years, Internet hosting companies offering Virtual Private Servers, or VPSes, have been calling for a new control panel amid security vulnerabilities, buggy behavior, and lack of responsiveness from the developers of the industry standard control panel software. After over a year of development and several months of real-world testing, Richard Kwan and Nick Moeck of Kodo Technologies (Kodo, LLC) are proud to release version 1.0 of their new virtual private server control panel, HostGuard.

“Hosting companies have been growing more and more disillusioned with the VPS control panels that are available, and we felt that it was time to make a change,” said Kodo Technologies CEO Richard Kwan. He went on to say, “As the owner of a VPS hosting company myself, I no longer had confidence that the control panels that are out there could meet the needs of my business, especially when it comes to security and reliability, so I decided to team up with a talented young developer who could turn my vision for a better control panel into a reality.” To ensure that those security goals were reached, HostGuard brought in industry leading server security firm Rack911 to perform an extensive security audit.

Lead Developer Nick Moeck said, “HostGuard's first release is aimed at laying the groundwork for an entirely new approach to how we interact with our clients. We don't want to be just another software provider - our goal is to team up with companies to provide them with the tools they need to handle their day-to-day operations more efficiently and provide their customers with a first-class experience.” When probed about whether that means they're going to tackle a billing panel next, Nick said “We have a lot of exciting things in the works that we hope will revolutionize not just the VPS hosting industry, but the entire tech industry.”
