Newark, Delaware – (The Hosting News) – April 17, 2007 – Web hosting solutions provider for small and medium-sized businesses, and Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner, HostMySite.com, has debuted a free trial for Microsoft’s newest Internet Information Services (IIS) technology.
HostMySite.com is one of the early adopters of IIS7 and is the first to provide customers with access to the IIS7 environment. IIS7 has already shipped in Windows Vista as a full-featured Web server for developers. Microsoft will ship IIS7 for web hosting in its upcoming release of Windows Server Codename ”Longhorn.” IIS7 is a completely modular web server, with integrated .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 rapidly incorporate in 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.
Eric Woersching, Technical Product Manager, Developer Division at Microsoft Corp. explained, ”At Microsoft we understand the importance of providing the community with the opportunity to ‘kick the tires’ of our products before they ship. We are thrilled to work with HostMySite.com to offer the free trial to our customers.”
Monish Sood, Director of Marketing for HostMySite.com added, ”It’s exciting to be involved in shaping new technology. It’s even more exciting to be able to involve our customers. Their observations and assistance is invaluable for Microsoft as well as HostMySite.com.”
Working with Microsoft, HostMySite.com was one of a few exclusive hosts to utilize IIS7 in a production environment with the IIS7 Go Live license well before the official product release. Being an early adopter gave the Delaware-based web host the ability to evaluate IIS7 in a test environment before developing an offer that would best suit customers.
Mr. Sood continued, ”Although the beta program will be available to the broader community at a later date, by working closely with Microsoft, we have been able to deliver this latest technology quickly to our customer base.”
