Doc-To-Help Introduces the Tech Comm Industry's First Free Cloud Documentation Hosting Solution

Pittsburgh, PA – May 7, 2014 – Doc-To-Help, a trusted name and award-winning product in the content authoring and publishing tool market, has announced the Beta release of Nest Server. Nest Server is a free cloud service for hosting NetHelp outputs and is a companion product of Doc-To-Help.

"Doc-To-Help is already well known for how it makes modern, high-quality, and responsive web-based Help easy to produce, and now with Nest Server we are taking it a step further by giving users a free 'Nest' to host it in," said Dan Beall, product manager at ComponentOne, a division of GrapeCity.

Nest Server is a cloud service that will host Doc-To-Help NetHelp outputs and provide user login, rating, commenting, and usage analytics. "End-users will be able to comment and rate topics, and their usage statistics will be available to content creators," said Beall. "All of this gives the Doc-To-Help user the information they need to create the best experience possible for their readers."

The company has developed the service so that Doc-To-Help users will have an admin interface that they can use to configure their service, manage users, and view reports. Since Nest Server is a cloud service, Doc-To-Help users don't need to install anything. They only need a URL, user name, and password.

"Our mission is to make life as easy as possible for Technical Communicators," said Beall. "We want them to focus on creating quality content while we take care of the technology that formats, designs, and hosts it."

With years of experience creating user-focused technical communication tools, it seems natural that the company would be involved in ways to make hosting easy for their clients. With Nest Server, Doc-To-Help users don't have to install NetHelp on the web themselves – users can simply upload their files.


Nest Server is available for a limited number of Beta users. The company plans to release it to the general market in the summer of 2014. For more information on joining the Beta program, please email Shani Mahler at
