Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – August 24, 2006 –
Hosting and managed services for small to midsized companies and partner firm, Verio, has unveiled new hosting solutions and feature enhancements on the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 platform for its viaVerio Reseller Partners. The plans are designed to deliver a wider range of client offerings to resellers and web developers using Microsoft Windows applications.
viaVerio resellers may purchase a variety of shared hosting for Windows plans directly through the viaVerio channel program, including a logical growth path that addresses reseller and developer needs and in many cases, their clients’ business drivers and requirements as well.
For example, for resellers with small business customers who want to quickly launch basic Web sites, Verio’s Starter Plan for Windows is a cost-effective, easy way to launch one or two Windows-based Web sites. The MultiSite for Windows solution provides up to 10 unique sites for resellers or developers who deliver web site creation or maintenance services to multiple customers, while eStorefront is better suited for users requiring ecommerce and email marketing functionality. Hosting on Microsoft SQL Server plan gives businesses access to a 200 MB Microsoft SQL Server database, and the Webmaster for Windows plan makes optimal use of the power of MultiSite functionality with up to 30 independent web sites.
Verio is also launching new email capabilities for its MultiSite for Windows service and for other non-hosted Windows domains. Verio’s MultiSite offering provides users the ability to split the resources of an account so that the account owner can manage multiple independent sites. The newly added Email for MultiSite capabilities enables resellers to offer customers even greater flexibility with the ability to create, edit and assign sub-domain email addresses for each of the independent client sites. Entry-level hosting plans will receive 200 email accounts, with the number of email accounts ranging up to 1000 depending on the hosting plan chosen. Users will benefit from email addresses that correspond to their domain name, eliminating the need for users to seek out email capabilities elsewhere.
John Zanni, Director of Worldwide Hosting at Microsoft Corp. commented, ”With the expansion of shared hosting for Windows and integration of the latest features, Verio is opening new revenue streams for its reseller partners. Microsoft is committed to helping its hosting provider partners address their customer needs. This will place viaVerio reseller partners in the best possible position to take advantage of a customer base that is demanding Windows-based shared hosting solutions for easy access to Microsoft development tools.”
For a limited time, Verio will offer a special promotion to coincide with the launch of Verio’s expanded Windows hosting solutions on viaVerio, whereby resellers can begin using new Windows hosting accounts for free for the first 30 days of service, in order to foster increased business and new clients.
Harry Hollines, Vice President of Channel Sales for Verio offered, ”Our resellers will find peace of mind in working with an established partner who can help streamline and consolidate their offerings across all platforms. As new features and value-added services on the Windows Server platform continue to evolve, Verio resellers will be able to generate solid growth opportunities by significantly expanding their portfolio of offerings to a broader client base.”
