This is the list of software and technologies with which I deal. This list is not full and expands day by day. I always can find right decisions if I found some problems. And I am always interested in looking for mostly economical and productive solutions. Of course, Cpanel, WHM, Webmin, Plesk .... I know how are working these web-wrappers and I support their.
