, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced a promotion that provides customers with a second server optimized for backup, sandbox development or testing, at one low price. Through March 31, customers can purchase one of six discounted servers as an add-on to an existing or new dedicated server and receive free R1Soft CDPServer software, a $50 value. The servers and software are priced from $49, reflecting discounts up to 69 percent.
