Newark, Delaware – (The Hosting News) – May 15, 2007 – Web hosting solutions provider for small and medium-sized businesses, and Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner, HostMySite.com, has debuted a free trial offer, for the latest web server technology from Microsoft, the Beta 3 of its Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.
As an early adopter of IIS7, HostMySite is now able to offer customers free access to an IIS7 beta trial environment. John Zanni, Director of Worldwide Hosting at Microsoft Corp. remarked, ”We are thrilled to help HostMySite.com offer its customers an easy-to-manage and reliable platform for both development and hosting of web applications and services. HostMySite.com is consistently at the forefront of offering new Microsoft hosting technologies, and we are pleased to work with it as an early adopter once again.”
IIS7 is the web server role in Windows Vista and the next version of Windows Server, code-named ”Longhorn.” IIS7 is a completely modular web server, with integrated Microsoft .NET extensibility for ultimate flexibility in extending and customizing the Web server. There are endless possibilities for customization, but more importantly, the modules are simple to build and incorporate easily into IIS7. More than forty modules are included and can be replaced, removed, or new ones added since IIS7 is built on public Win32 and .NET extensibility APIs.
Monish Sood, Director of Marketing for HostMySite.com added, ”By offering the IIS7 Beta 3 trial, we are excited about the opportunity to contribute feedback that will help shape this new technology. We are also eager to involve our customers in the process, as their thoughts and opinions are valued highly by HostMySite.com, as well as Microsoft.”
According to the company, one of HostMySite.com’s customers reports that having early access to the IIS7 beta helps his company better serve his own customers. Allen Fuller, Managing Partner of Flat Creek offered, ”As an interactive agency, we are always looking for the latest tools to better service our clients. Through HostMySite.com’s trial of IIS7 Beta 3, we are able to test the latest web server, get a head start preparing for the Windows Server ”Longhorn” launch, and look creatively at ways to extend our web applications and add value to our clients. It looks like IIS7 will be able to make HostMySite.com’s Web hosting even more reliable, and to me that means happy clients.”
HostMySite.com was one of a few exclusive hosts to utilize IIS7 in a production environment with the IIS7 Go Live license prior to the official release. Being an early adopter gave the Delaware-based Web host the opportunity to evaluate IIS7 in a test environment before developing an offer that would best suit customers.
