Thor Panel is a server administration software solution. It's primary function is to ease the administration of the following key areas:
1. Management of Clients
3. Management of Internet Traffic, e.g. Bandwidth Limitation / Restriction
4. Security, e.g. Firewall Management
Thor Control Panel brings together all of the above core functions (and more) into one centralized management console. Linux administration is not required when using Thor Control Panel, as all underlying complex linux operations are managed by the program, so you an concentrate on what's more important - your clients and your business.
With Thor Control Panel you can do the following:
1. Give or Deny Internet access to your clients.
2. Limit or restrict Internet traffic bandwidth.
3. Easily manage Internet security (i.e. firewall), without knowing complex iptables rules.
4. Curtail Internet traffic theft; popular spoofing methods, like MAC address changing do not bypass Thor Authentication system.
5. Easily message all your clients with news, notices, or alerts.
6. Manage billing for your clients; keep track of non-payments, late payments, penalties, etc; send payment reminders.
