November 1, 2007 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Web hosting provider Netfirms (http://www.netfirms.com) has announced that it has seen a high demand for its MultiPlatform™ technology since it launched in February 2007. Web developers are attracted to MultiPlatform hosting technology because of its flexibility –- the platform allows web developers to use both Microsoft Windows and Linux-based web development tools simultaneously.

Netfirms recently surveyed 1,000 customers about which features were most important in their decision to choose Netfirms MultiPlatform. Results indicated that Microsoft features, including MSSQL, ASP.Net 2.x and ASP.Net 1.x were most important. In terms of Linux features, web developers ranked PHP 4/5 and MySQL as most important.

Overall, Windows and Linux MultiPlatform features ranked most important to web developers when choosing a web host, above price, online research, and advice from colleagues or friends. The findings indicate a strong attraction to the flexibility of being able to use Microsoft Windows and Linux features on one single account.

“Our research shows that web developers want the flexibility of using both Windows and Linux environments to build their websites,” says Thomas Savundra, president of Netfirms, Inc. “That’s what attracts web developers to our seamlessly integrated MultiPlatform technology.”
