Determining which Hosting Platform your account is on

« Go Back



WebCentral offers two hosting platforms to its customers. Our oldest platform is referred to as the Legacy platform. The system that was brought in after that is known as MCAM (Mission Control Account Management). The current and newest platform is referred to as The Console, and we are beginning to migrate all of our customers into this one, single platform.

It's a bit confusing right now, because as we migrate, we have these platforms running at the same time. As such, you'll notice some articles are labelled with "MCAM" and some are labelled with "Legacy". As you might have guessed, the articles labelled MCAM are for MCAM customers, and the articles labelled Legacy are for Legacy customers. Articles that don't have a label are relevant to anyone. 

So, how do you know whether you're Legacy or MCAM?
