I have never heard of them and I have set up hundreds of sites - but 
that means nothing really. Looking over their site its not very 
informative - neither are their screen shots. But, since this is run in 
a web browser so its platform independent. Most of the google results I 
got on it are from Windows 2003 server and they seem to cater to Windows 
platforms - or windows users seem to use them more than others - which 
again doesnt mean just a whole lot.

Download it and try it out. They use paypal as a gateway so it wont do 
any harm to test it out.
