Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – April 12, 2006 – Web hosting and Internet services firm, Verio Inc., has introduced its new Open Computer Network (OCN) Hosting Service for Windows, a Microsoft Windows-based shared hosting suite offered for the first time to small and medium sized enterprises in Japan.
According to the company, the suite encompasses products and services to develop, establish and manage a presence on the Internet, including a variety of Windows-based hosting plans that meet the diverse needs of small businesses in Japan.
Based on Verio’s Shared Hosting Platform for Windows, the OCN Hosting Service is intended to offer Verio’s MultiSite technology that enables customers to host multiple domain-based web sites within one shared hosting plan. OCN Hosting Service customers can host up to 25 sites with unique URLs, all under one account.
Verio believes that the service also enables web developers to create more dynamic and complex Web sites through the use of ASP.NET and Microsoft SQL Server 2000. The new platform for Windows provides a foundation for the development of Microsoft .NET Framework-based web sites and web applications. Developers can make optimal use of existing Windows server investments on the operating system or easily deliver applications as web services.
Pascal Martin, General Manager of Worldwide Hosting at Microsoft Corp. commented, ”The extension of the Open Computer Network service to the Japanese market speaks volumes to the flexibility and scalability of the Windows platform, as well as to the success achieved with the service in North America. By using Windows as the hosting platform, NTT Communications’ customers can take advantage of the tens of thousands of developers creating applications and services based on the .NET Framework.”
Masaaki Sano, Director of Broadband IP Services Business Division at NTT Communications added, ”This is the first time NTT Communications has offered a shared Web hosting service based on Windows to meet the needs of .NET Web developers in small and medium sized enterprises. Our small and midsized business customers can now experience the same level of stable, reliable, and innovative services as Verio’s high quality shared hosting services for Windows at a reasonable price.”
