Providence, Utah – (The Hosting News) – May 17, 2007 – Web hosting provider, WestHost Inc., has instituted a major upgrade of its web hosting systems, including improved server resource management, a redesigned control panel and a comprehensive basis for future deployments.
Under development for over a year, the third major upgrade to its portfolio platform, based on RedHat ES 4, introduces substantial performance and reliability enhancements. In particular, Quality of Service (QoS) technology guarantees each hosting account a fair share of server processing power to ensure reliable Web site responsiveness. Additionally, a more user-friendly Site Manager combines a new graphically appealing interface with a simplified navigation scheme.
Chris Russell, CEO of WestHost remarked, ”We carefully listened to our client base in implementing changes to Site Manager, along with targeting our performance improvements. In addition, the new platform allows WestHost to remain at the industry forefront, offering the latest solutions at the best possible value to our clients.”
In conjunction with this system upgrade, WestHost is offering significantly improved shared, reseller and dedicated server hosting plans. In most cases, disk space and bandwidth more than doubled while plan prices remained the same. In addition, MediaWiki, a fully-featured application for building a Wiki-based site, has been included as a standard feature on any Starter hosting plan and above. The Business Pro plan now includes the Helix DNA Server, a robust media streaming service for RealAudio, RealVideo and MP3 files.
Hosting plans on the new platform are available now. Personal Hosting plans start at $3.95 per month while their Business Hosting plans begin at $7.95 per month. Managed dedicated servers and reseller plans are also available. All are supported by WestHost Virtual Private Server (VPS) technology. Plans include Website Creator, the improved Site Manager control panel, a dedicated IP address, site statistics, multiple domain support, 24/7/365 REAL technical support, along with a diverse selection of Web site applications. All WestHost VPS shared hosting plans offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Since 1998, WestHost has provided web hosting services including personal and business hosting with WestHost VPS technology, e-commerce solutions, managed dedicated servers, reseller hosting, domain registration, and web design. WestHost supports over 30,000 Web sites in nearly 110 different countries from a world-class data center, redundant Tier 1 connectivity, and 24/7 REAL support.
