The Hepsia Control Panel is now more service upgrade-friendly
Wooing your customers with a good deal of web hosting resources is one thing, keeping them up to date with their current resource usage is another.
The Hepsia Control Panel has just undergone a major uplift to help your customers keep an eye on resource usage and give them a clear idea of what features their sites are hungry for in real time.
This will help them make an informed choice about which service(s) to upgrade and thus prevent any eventual downtimes.
Visual improvements to the resource usage table
Users often get lost amidst the tons of features and resources they are bombarded with. They know that you are a great provider offering what they need, but they rarely have a clear idea of how much is left in the basket of resources.
This is why, we’ve tried to add a more visual touch to the resource usage table by making it more graphically informative and bell-ringing. The main idea is to keep users informed of what they have used at any given moment, so that they will know what to upgrade when the time comes and before it’s too late.
The resource usage is visualized through different colors in the progress bar:
Four progress bar colors correspond to the following resource usage situations:
Grey – the user is taking advantage of up to ⅙ of the allocated resources;
Green – the user’s resource usage is within reasonable limits and they have nothing to worry about;
Orange – the user is reaching a critical resource usage level and is advised to upgrade in order to avoid full resource exhaustion;
Red – the user has already reached a critical resource usage level and is prompted to upgrade immediately. In this case the whole section is linked to the checkout form to ease the upgrade.
NOTE: The table of resources is updated in real time, so whenever there is an update to the usage status, it will be reflected in the table without the user needing to refresh the page.
Newly added section-specific resource usage bars
In addition to the improved resource usage table, which can be accessed from within all Control Panel sections, the users will also see small progress bars dedicated to a particular feature depending on the section they are in.
Visual improvements to the My Domain Names table
Apart from the resource usage table, we’ve also improved the visibility of the domain names table.
Through the use of different colors, users will now be more visually alerted of the expiring and expired domain names in their hosting account.
Also, users will now be able to renew their domains directly from the table, without needing to go to the Domain Manager beforehand. This is valid for both single and bulk domain renewals.
In the Domain Manager itself, users will also see progress bar alerts about domains that are nearing expiration or have already expired:
Hopefully, the new upgrade improvements will make your customers more conscious of the resources they are using and will make them appreciate your services’ scalability even more.
Next week, we’ll make another major Hepsia update in this direction, so stay tuned.Originally published Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 5:06 pm, updated March 9, 2015 and is filed under Hepsia Control Panel, Domain Names.
