Windows 2003 / 2008 Web Hosting
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is the best hosting platform Microsoft has released to date. It is faster, more reliable, and more secure than its predecessors. All Windows 2000/2003 and IIS 5.0/6.0 servers have been upgraded to 2008 and IIS 7.0.
For customers who require Windows hosting to serve their web sites we now offer one Windows 2008 web hosting package running IIS 7.0. See our shared hosting plans for Windows web hosting package details.
Our Windows servers come with ActivePerl 5.10.1 and PHP 5.2.11 installed as well as two different available database applications, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and MySQL 5.0 for maximum code compatibility.
Windows hosting should only be considered by customers who have development requirements such as using Visual Basic, ASP, ASP.NET, or any other .NET framework applications for the Web which limit their hosting options. For everyone else, please consider our Unix web hosting services.
Note (Microsoft FrontPage): It is a common misconception that sites created with Microsoft FrontPage must be hosted on Windows servers. Although FrontPage is a Microsoft product, FrontPage Webs can be hosted perfectly on a UNIX web server with FrontPage Extensions installed.
Note (Hosting Features): All services not related to the user's web site are still hosted on a linux server with the CPanel hosting control panel. This choice was made because of our anti-spam filters in conjunction with SpamAssassin. They are so useful and so powerful that we could not imagine hosting without them.
Windows servers also come equipped with Windows Streaming Media services. These streaming points are available for both Unix and Windows hosting customers.
