CrystalTech Web Hosting Prepares for .NET 3.5 With Beta Offer

Share Article

CrystalTech Web Hosting™, a Newtek Business Services™ company (NASDAQ: NEWT) and a leading provider of Windows web hosting, announced the impending release of a new beta hosting plan featuring the latest version of Microsoft's .NET framework, version 3.5.

We have been part of the Beta program with Microsoft and .NET since day one, and we were one of the first, if not THE first, to have a full-fledged web site management application based on the .NET framework. Our WebControlCenter™ is a prime example of the reliability, stability and security you can get when using the .NET framework.

While the upcoming release of Microsoft's .NET framework contains several bug fixes and updates (so-called "red bits"), it also brings a number of new assemblies and technologies (so called "green bits") that net developers have been waiting to get their hands on. These green bits include AJAX, LINQ for both C# and VB, and enhancements to the tool sets that will help ease building applications using Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows Communication Foundation.

"CrystalTech prides itself as one of the premiere Microsoft partners specializing in Windows web hosting," said Robert Cichon, CrystalTech President. "We have been part of the Beta program with Microsoft and .NET since day one, and we were one of the first, if not THE first, to have a full-fledged web site management application based on the .NET framework. Our WebControlCenter™ is a prime example of the reliability, stability and security you can get when using the .NET framework."

As with previous beta hosting plans CrystalTech offered, the plan based on .NET 3.5 will be free for a limited time. The Plan will offer enough disk space and bandwidth so that early adopters can get running on .NET 3.5 as quickly as possible. In addition, CrystalTech is considering offering .NET 3.5 on Windows Server 2008 and IIS7 as a separate beta Plan. "The future is now," continued Cichon. "Even though Microsoft is still a few months away from having a release to market of its next generation server OS and platform, there's no reason people can't start seeing what is on the horizon."

"This is a great way for those who are unfamiliar with our reputation for providing first-rate hosting solutions with the highest levels of service and support to try us out," added Cichon. "CrystalTech was founded by developers and for developers. Catering to that market and following that business plan has served us well for the past ten years; there's no reason to stop now," Said Cichon. CrystalTech will release the beta plan for public consumption by the end of July.
