CrystalTech Web Hosting Inc, one of the largest providers of web hosting on the Microsoft Windows platform, announced today the release of two hosting plans designed specifically for use with Microsoft Windows Sharepoint Services.
In addition to the two new hosting plans, CrystalTech revealed a new-look website that not only showcases the Sharepoint plans, but also emphasizes the other shared hosting CrystalTech offers for customers who use either Microsoft ASP/ASP.NET technology or Macromedia’s ColdFusion MX.
According to Tim Uzzanti, President and CEO of CrystalTech, the differentiation between the shared hosting plans CrystalTech offers was essential to not only display the diverse environments available when hosting with CrystalTech, but also to point out the strengths of each environment. “In the past we’ve focused our efforts on marketing the differences between the shared and dedicated environment, without emphasizing the versatility of the shared environment. We decided to break out our shared hosting plans to show that customers who want to use a particular scripting environment, whether their expertise lies with ASP.NET or ColdFusion, have a place to go to display their talents and their abilities,” he said. Furthermore, by clearly delineating hosting plans based on scripting environment, CrystalTech will be better able to display their membership in various hosting programs offered by both Macromedia and Microsoft. “We are an Alliance Partner with Macromedia, and also members of the Microsoft .NET Hosting Advantage Program. Therefore, with our new layout we will be able to clearly define those relationships to the people who matter: our customers,” he continued.
In addition to separating their shared hosting Plans based on primary scripting environment, CrystalTech also recently released two new Plans that are based on Microsoft’s Windows Sharepoint Services. “Sharepoint is something that our customers have been asking us to provide for quite some time and something we know will be well-received. In fact, we use it internally, giving us a single point of collaboration for the various departments within CrystalTech like Support, Network Operations, Sales and Billing and to be able to provide that functionality to our customers is truly exciting,” he said. The two plans CrystalTech offers, competitively priced at $19.95 per month and $29.95 per month respectively, give businesses, both large and small, the full complement of collaboration inherent in Windows Sharepoint Services. In addition, with the ability to incorporate Sharepoint “web parts,” customers can further expand Sharepoint’s functionality to suit their particular business needs.
With the latest iteration of their hosting plans clearly labeled, and with the inclusion of two new plans solely for customers looking to implement Windows Sharepoint Services, CrystalTech continues to secure their position as the third largest provider of web hosting based on the Windows 2003 platform (as noted by Netcraft in their February 2004 survey). With a future that holds great promise, and a clear plan on how to turn that promise into reality, CrystalTech looks to remain at the forefront, providing high quality services without a high quality price tag.
