In line with this trend, we're excited to announce that the Hepsia Control Panel can now be utilized as an app.
Our tailor-made control panel, designed to complement our web hosting services, is now available for easy installation as a Progressive Web App (PWA) in compatible browsers like Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Brave, Vivaldi, and more.
This makes setting up the Hepsia app a straightforward process.
A PWA, short for Progressive Web App, is a web application that combines the capabilities of web browsers and mobile technologies to deliver a user experience similar to that of a traditional app.
PWAs achieve this by transforming a website into a standalone application, eliminating superfluous browser elements like menus, search boxes, toolbars, and window borders.
PWAs adhere to the progressive enhancement approach, where developers prioritize core content and features before adding supplementary functionalities as required.
The benefits of utilizing PWA-based websites with app-like functionality include:
The Hepsia PWA, functioning as an emulation of a native web app, provides users with a significantly quicker and smoother experience when interacting with the Control Panel. This positions you advantageously in the rapidly expanding mobile market, representing over 50% of global web traffic.
Mobile users can conveniently access the app from their smartphone's home screen, enabling on-the-go usage, similar to their preferred social media platforms. This integration makes Hepsia a regular part of their mobile routine and contributes to enhancing overall engagement with your brand.
Installing the Hepsia PWA-based app is a straightforward process when using PWA-compatible browsers like Chrome, Edge, or Brave on popular operating systems.
Please note that you need to log into your Hepsia dashboard before proceeding with the installation.
Here are instructions for installing the Hepsia app on Windows, macOS, and Android using Chrome.
If you're a Chrome user on Windows, you have a couple of quick installation options:
Both actions will trigger a browser popup window asking for confirmation. Once confirmed, you'll be directed to the app-like version of the Control Panel, free from browser elements and borders.
The Hepsia app is now installed on your desktop and can be accessed from the Start menu icon or desktop shortcut.
On Android devices, the installation process is even more straightforward:
Once selected, the app icon will be added to your home screen.
Installing the Hepsia PWA app via Chrome on macOS follows a similar process to Windows.
After installation, the new app will start automatically and will appear in the Dock and Launchpad. However, it won't be searchable via Spotlight, and it won't be found in the main Applications folder.
