April 14, 2006 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web hosting provider Verio Inc. announced recently that NTT Communications in Japan has adopted its new Open Computer Network (OCN) Hosting Service for Windows the first time the Microsoft Windows-based shared hosting suite has been offered to businesses in Japan.
The suite is based on Verio's award-winning Shared Hosting Platform for Windows and enables businesses and developers to host multiple domain-based web sites within one shared hosting plan. Verio's MultiSite technology enables OCN Hosting Service to host up to 25 sites with unique URLs under the same one account.
"The extension of the Open Computer Network service to the Japanese market speaks volumes to the flexibility and scalability of the Windows platform, as well as to the success achieved with the service in North America," suggested Pascal Martin, general manager of Worldwide Hosting at Microsoft Corp. "By using Windows as the hosting platform, NTT Communications' customers can take advantage of the tens of thousands of developers creating applications and services based on the .NET Framework."
"This is the first time NTT Communications has offered a shared Web hosting service based on Windows to meet the needs of .NET Web developers in small and medium sized enterprises," said Masaaki Sano, Director, Broadband IP Services Business Division at NTT Communications. "Our small and midsized business customers can now experience the same level of stable, reliable, and innovative services as Verio's high quality shared hosting services for Windows at a reasonable price."
