A New Control Panel Signaling New Opportunities
May 8, 2015 | Taylor Jasko
At the beginning of 2014, we updated the UI of our control panel, saying it was a step along the path of building you the best CDN management tool ever. With our latest update, we take one, two, three steps closer to that goal.
We’ll let you decide when we reach it. 🙂
Critiqued over the span of six months, this redesign streamlines all the features we’ve added to the control panel since originally designing it over five years ago.
Details like alignment, spacing, typography, and icons are ironed out and the experience is smoother than ever before. But the majority of changes we made this time around are less … topical.
Features of the redesign include:
- Support for the new CDN reseller program
- Simpler design
- More consistent look and feel
- Better mobile support
Contrary to the minor changes the image above depicts, this redesign involved a complete overhaul of the control panel’s design elements.
While we did tidy up aesthetics, the bulk of the changes focus on scalability. The reformed frontend now makes it easier for us to focus on user requests and build new features.
One of these new features is already here: the slick-looking white label control panel that comes with the MaxCDN reseller program. The reseller platform has existed for quite some time, but now MaxCDN resellers can manage their customers’ accounts through an interface that mimics the smoothness and simplicity of the redesigned MaxCDN control panel.
Because of this latest redesign, we now have one of the best reseller platforms offered in the CDN market. Whether MaxCDN customer, partner, or both, you can have a CDN experience that’s reliable and consistent across all platforms, all the time.
