Markham, ON (PRWEB) March 11, 2010 -- Netfirms introduces their virtual private server solution designed for the web professional. A veteran North American web hosting company (since 1998), this month's release of the Netfirms™ VPS S-Series marks a product expansion that goes beyond the demands of their usual personal and small business customer.
These S-Series Servers, target the web professional looking for real flexibility and control.
As the launch campaign suggests, this is a 'Seriously Scalable, Stable and Sophisticated' offering. Powered by leading virtual technology Parallels™ Virtuozzo, these servers support full root access so that users can install the applications they need. Starting at only $34.95 US/month (based on a 2 year plan), it's the ideal hybrid for those professionals not quite ready to invest in a dedicated server.
"We're committed to our personal and business customer. This introduction is intended to address the needs of the professional level users that are evolving out of our current customer base; customers that have been with us for a while whose needs have graduated. They're now looking for more flexibility and control and we want to be able to service these needs," says Thomas Savundra, Co-founder and CEO. "It's the gradual next step for web professionals, as well as it is for us as a hosting company."
Located onsite at the state-of-the-art Netfirms datacenter, these feature rich servers come standard with CentOS 5, PHP, MySQL, Perl, Python, Ruby and more. Plus, with the Parallels™ Plesk Panel, you'll find hundreds of web applications such as social media, ecommerce, rich email, content management systems and CRM that can all be activated with just one-click. And if you don't find what you're looking for, full root access will allow you to install whatever you need.
"It's a self-serve product by nature, but we've introduced a few details to keep things simple," says Jason Koo, Development Manager. "My personal favorite is the Dual Control feature where our own Netfirms Control Panel maintains all the administrative needs and the 3-R's - reinstall, reboot, and reset, while the Parallels Plesk Panel does the rest with regards to what goes on inside your server."
The VPS S-Series offer 3 plan levels. For full plan specifications, visit netfirms.com/vps/compare-plans. Sign ups during the introductory period include 3 months FREE on all one and two year plans.
