CrystalTech Web Hosting Inc (www.crystaltech.com), a subsidiary of Newtek Business Services (www.newtekbusinessservices.com) and a leading provider of Windows-based web hosting, announced on January 13 the addition of two new Developer Hosting Plans, one for ColdFusion MX 7.0, and one for PHP 4.X. All of CrystalTechÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Developer Plans allow web designers and developers to build and test their sites on a remote server easily and inexpensively.
As a close partner of Macromedia (www.macromedia.com) and one of a select few web hosts that are participating in the beta test of the latest release of ColdFusion, CrystalTech provides customers with the opportunity to build and test their own CFMX 7.0 sites before the official launch of CFMX 7.0 to the public. As an added benefit, the CFMX 7.0 Beta Developer Plan is available for free, with no contract length or any other type of commitment. Customers taking advantage of this offer will also have the ability to upgrade their accounts to full production hosting plans via CrystalTechÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s custom Control Center once CFMX 7.0 is officially released and available to the public.
CrystalTech has also made available Developer Plans for two other popular scripting environments, ASP.NET and PHP 4.X, and lowered its monthly hosting fee on these accounts to only $2.95 per month. Unlike other hosts, these plans give users access to a full set of features and are not limited just because of their cost. Each plan includes 100MB of web disc space, 2GB of bandwidth, 5 email accounts and 24/7 access to CrystalTechÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s renowned technical support. The ASP.NET plan includes 30MB of Microsoft SQL storage while the PHP 4.X plan includes 30MB of MySQL space.
