New York (PRWEB) June 9, 2006 –
Intermedia.NET, the US leader in Microsoft Exchange hosting and Web hosting for small and medium businesses, announced free Microsoft SharePoint hosting to all customers signing up for hosted Exchange services. Typically costing $40 or more per month, the free SharePoint hosting allows small and medium businesses to collaborate and manage both documents and processes via the Web.
By combining Exchange hosting with free SharePoint hosting, Intermedia.NET allows even the smallest businesses to use the same advanced email, collaboration and document sharing as major corporations, but for a low monthly fee and no upfront investment.
The limited-time free SharePoint hosting offer includes the full functionality of SharePoint, such as collaboration, file-sharing, workflow and document libraries. Small Business customers get ‘pooled’ storage, so they can use the same disk space from their Exchange mailboxes to store their SharePoint files.
“We have seen an increasing demand for hosted SharePoint,” said Serguei Sofinski, CEO of Intermedia.NET. “With our free SharePoint hosting offer, we are combining our industry-leading Exchange hosting with the powerful collaboration and document-sharing of Windows SharePoint Services and are expecting a large take-up for the offer.”
Intermedia.NET will also offer dedicated SharePoint hosting for $495 per month, with a dedicated SharePoint server entirely for one customer. The price is all-inclusive, unlike many competitors who add hidden charges of hundreds of dollars for a separate MS SQL server.
Windows SharePoint Services has grown popular as companies try to connect remote workers and teams via Web-based technology. Easy to set up, SharePoint hosting allows businesses to move their files and processes online, available to their employees from any location and at any time.
SharePoint hosting also integrates with Microsoft Office, so employees can ‘check out’ documents such as Excel spreadsheets and Word documents from online document libraries, then ‘check in’ the documents after they edit them, without someone else overwriting their changes in the meantime.
In the hosting business since 1995 and hosting Microsoft Exchange since 2000, Intermedia.NET offered the first Exchange hosting solution specifically for small and medium businesses – enterprise-strength technology as a service for a low monthly fee, with no up-front investment.
Intermedia.NET is a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, and companies looking for hosted Exchange or Web site hosting know that Intermedia.NET will provide the absolute best in 24x7 support, as well as technical knowledge of the highest level.
The company offers a wide variety of Exchange hosting and Web hosting plans, from the smallest businesses with three users and upwards, to substantial mid-sized organizations. Intermedia.NET hosted Exchange plans start at $9.95 per month for each user. For further details on our hosted Exchange offerings, please visit http://www.intermedia.net/exchange-hosting.
