Orlando, Florida – (The Hosting News) – March 26, 2009 – Shared, Reseller, Dedicated and Virtual Private Server hosting solutions provider, Surpass Hosting, has introduced its Developer hosting plan, including over a dozen development frameworks and a wide variety of key tools designed specifically for web developers.
Kayla Fleming, vice president of sales, Surpass Hosting remarked, ”The Developer Plan is based on a new server architecture that is more pliable for the typical developer and offers many more options for advanced web development, including the cornerstone of the plan, Surpass Hosting Developer Tools. We’ve noticed that most so-called developer hosting plans are skeletal. Our Developer plan takes it to a new level and offers the toolbox of technologies that developers need to create first class web applications.”
Starting at just $15 per month, the Developer plan offers 1000GB of disk space, unmetered monthly data transfer, and the ability to host up to 5 domain names. It also includes a free private IP address, unlimited shell access, a dedicated SSL certificate, and access to several pre-loaded software revision control systems (currently Subversion, Git, and Concurrent Versions System).
The Developer plan is the first Surpass Hosting plan to fully support Ruby on Rails as deployed using mod_ruby and Phusion Passenger (mod_rails) in conjunction to create a stable and functional environment for Ruby on Rails development.
Surpass Hosting Developer Tools, a core component of the Developer plan, enables users to install on-demand more than a dozen development frameworks. These include Ruby on Rails, jQuery, CakePHP, Blueprint CSS, Dojo Toolkit, Ext JS, MooTools, Prototype, Scriptaculous, CodeIgniter, Doctrine, Smarty, Symfony, and Zend Framework. Each framework is automatically updated each night from the repository trunk to keep the code up to date. Ultimately, it saves developers time.
