July 18, 2008 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Easyspace (www.easyspace.com), one of the largest web hosting and domain name providers in the UK, has launched a unique customisable web hosting service for home and business users.
As a leading provider of web hosting packages, already offering a number of pre-built shared hosting packages, the company has taken this innovative step as it seeks to further simplify the web hosting purchase process for customers.
The Pic 'n' Mix package lets customers customise their hosting solution to better match their requirements at the slide of a selection bar, by allowing them to choose the settings of five key components disk space, bandwidth, mailboxes, operating system and payment plan.
Costs for the Pic 'n' Mix package range from as little as ฃ1.25 to ฃ30 per month depending on the choices the customer makes.
Customers can choose:
- between five and 200 mailboxes;
- between one and 20GB of disk space;
- between three and 50GB of bandwidth;
- Linux or Windows-based systems;
- monthly or yearly payment plans
Errol Vanderhorst, sales and marketing director for Easyspace, said: Customers no longer need to buy an all singing, all dancing, pre-built package if all they require is a lot of disk space, for example.
With Pic 'n' Mix, the customer chooses the specification. We take care of the rest.
The Pic n Mix package will join other Easyspace offerings such as the popular StarterPlus (for beginners, personal and home users) and Business packages.
Errol Vanderhorst added: Individuals requirements and reasons for purchasing web hosting don't fit neatly into a select few categories, so it makes sense that web hosting itself becomes more flexible to offer maximum benefit to the end user.
"Our Pic 'n' Mix technology allows customers to determine the specification and cost of their own package, meaning if they simply want more bandwidth or more disk space, they can have it at the slide of a selection bar without the need to buy a more expensive package which includes additional features that they simply won't use."
All Pic 'n' Mix packages still come with a range of default features including a free domain name, daily backups, webmail access, database options, firewall protection, password protection, web stats, free email marketing credits, free Pay Per Click search credits and an extensive and effective customer support service.
