The Site Manager service interface is almost fully complete and functional - there are a couple of things missing such as invoicing and the ability to upgrade/downgrade your subscription. These wont be available until Site Manager reaches a stable version - for anyone that registers before Site Manager reaches a stable mode, they will have the ability to add up to 50 domains and will receive a 50% life-time discount when Site Manager becomes stable.
