Herndon, Virginia - (The Hosting News) - October 2, 2007 - Web hosting provider, and domain name registration and services firm, Network Solutions, is now offering virtual private server web hosting (VPS), designed for small and medium sized businesses.
The new Network Solutions VPS package, include software and are backed by Network Solutions 24/7 customer support. VPS is a form of hosting that partitions one physical server into multiple ''virtual'' servers. Each virtual server is fully isolated, can run its own operating system and can be independently rebooted. Unlike standard shared hosting, where hundreds of users share a server, VPS hosting provides advanced website developers the access, functionality, speed and security of a dedicated server without the expensive price tag or excessive responsibility.
Jeff Grosman, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing and Management for Network Solutions offered, ''Network Solutions is pleased to announce that we are offering our advanced and tech-savvy users the option to use our new
VPS hosting packages. The new Network Solutions Virtual Private Server Web Hosting packages provide growing or cost-conscious customers a flexible and powerful solution that is affordable and yet still offers an outstanding value for their business. Customers can choose the level of service that best suits their business. The standard customer support that comes with all of our VPS packages includes assistance with server related issues, something most competitors do not offer.''
VPS hosting is for customers that require total control over their hosting solution, including root access and reboot capabilities. The solution is also ideal for customers who need to maintain separate operating systems and run and manage multiple websites that are independent from one another.
In August, Network Solutions released a new whitepaper on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates, to examine the importance of SSL certificate security. As a necessity for online business owners, valid SSL certificates protect web sites, so that online business owners do not run the risk of exposing sensitive customer information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers or passwords to identity thieves. An SSL certificate safeguards the customer's information from outside observation or interception by encrypting it. Protecting the exchange of personal information between the customer and the owner's business makes customers more comfortable transacting business with the owner, ultimately leading to higher sales conversations.
The whitepaper also sheds light on the key facts and considerations that a small business owner should keep in mind both when using an SSL certificate and choosing between SSL certificate providers. Many online business owners need to learn everything about SSL certificates ranging from what an SSL is and how it works to the benefits of using SSL certificates. Network Solutions realizes that knowing the answers to these questions is vital to the success of any online business, and wants to ensure that they make using an SSL Certificate simple and affordable for all web sites.
In addition to explaining the purpose and benefits of an SSL certificate, SSL Certificates: A Simple Solution to Web Site Security, explores different types of SSL certificates, the visual indicators that the new EV certificate uses to identify a secure site, and how to obtain a security certificate from SSL certificate providers. This whitepaper is especially helpful for those just learning how to take their business online securely.
