Mall Edition

This edition is specifically designed for ISP's that are implementing a large number of stores. It allows for an unlimited number of stores to be setup on a single server. No per store licensing fees.The only limitation is the power of your hardware, your bandwidth and your imagination.

The individual stores in the Mall have the same feature set as the netServer millennium edition. The Mall provides a single interface for consumers to visit and purchase from the stores. However, the stores also can be independent sites with their own domain and not part of the Mall at all except for administration purposes.

The Mall Manager allows the ISP to setup new stores through a browser interface and determine the feature set for the store. Unlimited and varying billing plans can be created to give the most flexibility to the ISP in pricing hosting of stores. Stores can be automatically billed their monthly fees as well so the maintenance and management of the clients is automated. Supported databases include MS SQL, Postgres, Oracle and Sybase.
