Fasthosts Debuts New Business Platinum Web Hosting Package

05 September 2013, Gloucester, UK: Fasthosts Internet Ltd,, a leading web hosting provider, today launched an additional package to its premium-quality hosting range. The new Business Platinum tariff, aimed at web designers and developers, builds upon the popular Business Gold package, and now features advanced web application frameworks Ruby on Rails, Python and Perl. The latest addition to Fasthosts’ web hosting range represents a further step in the company’s drive to raise the standard of UK web hosting, and is of particular relevance to web professionals and medium sized businesses.

Fasthosts' new Platinum Web Hosting package, available from £7.49/month+VAT for the first 3 months, and £14.99/month+VAT thereafter, addresses all the key demands of small to medium businesses, and includes all the features required for advanced website design and performance. As well as unlimited web space, the package is optimised for hosting multiple websites. Importantly, the Platinum package includes support for Ruby on Rails, Python and Perl for the latest high-end programs for optimised website design, and a high level of user-interaction. Such developments are the ideal solution for demanding users that require fast-loading, robust web projects such as multiple websites that use resource hungry applications.

Fasthosts' new package includes new development features PHP 5.4 and 5.2 and ASP.NET 4.5 & 3.5 for Windows, and the ability to host multiple load balanced websites. The new hosting package has been optimised to deliver PHP memory at 100MB, script execution times of approximately 90 seconds and support for up to 20 parallel processes. Load Balancing enhances speed and reliability of hosted websites by sharing visitors over multiple web servers. Further features include unlimited bandwidth, unlimited MSSQL and MySQL databases, hosting for 3 websites, 99.99% guaranteed uptime, one .uk and .net domain name, Online File Manager, one 25GB Microsoft Exchange 2013 mailbox and UK phone support.

This latest hosting innovation from Fasthosts further represents the company’s dedication to provide technology that can deliver a competitive edge to rapidly growing UK businesses. Glenn Elliott, CEO and Founder of Asperity Employee Benefits, a leading employee benefit programme Reward Gateway commented on the importance of a highly reliable and quality web presence.

Elliott comments, "With a rapidly expanding client base, including the likes of McDonalds, IBM and Cancer Research UK, it was important for us to choose a consistent, reliable service provider, that was flexible with our business needs and growth. I knew the technology I needed existed within Fasthosts, and by using their full hosting service I have seen greater employee engagement from our unique customer websites".

Fasthosts also supports business and professional users with lead generation tools. Included within Fasthosts Business Platinum Hosting package, users receive £155 online advertising vouchers, Graphical Web Stats and TrafficDriver SEO Service, to better analyse and engage with their online audiences.

Claire Lewis, Marketing Director, Fasthosts Internet Ltd., said "It is now vital for web designers and more ambitious business users to have access to a hosting platform that is optimised for their online success. Web building has changed, the use of web apps and CMS has grown, and as a result, many users require greater resource, performance and support. Our Platinum package offers a non-technical user similar performance to some server products in the market, but with the cost effectiveness, ease of use and failsafe reliability of Fasthosts' shared hosting. With no hidden fees or limitations, our hosting offering is designed to flex and adapt in line with your success."
