Why do so many host choose to use Miva?

Seems like every host uses Miva. What makes it so special? Is it dirt cheap for hosting companies???

I tried it and it sucked IMO.

Anybody who uses can you respond??

Kind of like why people use Cpanel, it is easy to use and they market pretty well. We don't use it as we have had very few clients that wanted it. In the past we had it on servers and it was a good tool.

I think the pricing for Miva is one of the reasons. A server-wide license for a one-time fee, if I recall. Makes it cost effective to implement for a large number of customers and that is probably the reason why it was initially so popular.

Just my two cents...
