Freshosts Announces New Hosting Plans

Freshosts, a UK hosting provider, announced today that they are rolling out new hosting plans that will start at around 7 Pounds per month and will allow customers to run PHP and ASP pages from the same directory.

According to Mike Lee, company’s Sales Manager, Freshosts True Hybrid technology checks each file, sending Windows and Linux pages to clusters using those platforms. “As a design shop, you may get a client that has legacy code on their site that uses one technology, and you want to work with another technology,” said Lee. “This way, you can keep what’s working and build on top of it.

“We are looking to collect beta participants before the site goes live in May 2006,” said Lee. “Beta participants will be able to test the service and then give feed back to the team at Freshosts. “There’s a big sense of energy at Freshosts,” said Lee. “All of the team believes what we’re doing could really change things in the world of hosting.”
