Host NewsPhoenix, Arizona – CrystalTech Web Hosting, the web hosting division of Newtek Technology Services, a Newtek Business Services, Inc. company (NASDAQ:NEWT), today announced the release of new economically priced Hyper-V powered Virtual Private Server (VPS) plans that start at $59.95 per month, a price only available through January 31, 2009.

Earlier this year, CrystalTech became one of the premier hosting providers to offer Microsoft Hyper-V as the underlying technology behind a VPS solution, offering true hardware virtualization and heavy isolation between virtual instances on the physical server. The new plans, which provide users with a dedicated-like environment for less than half the price of most dedicated servers, include Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition, a value of over $50.00 per month, a guaranteed 512 MB of memory, 30 GB of disk space, and full administrative access to the operating system.

“As more businesses and developers turn to VPS as an affordable alternative to dedicated hosting, it was important that we were able to expand our offering to include a solution that was comparable in price to higher-end shared hosting plans yet more powerful than most other VPS solutions at a similar price point,” said Bob Cichon, president and chief operating officer of Newtek Technology Services. “Now customers can leverage the power of a robust Windows server environment at half the price.”

CrystalTech today also released details of the server hardware it utilizes on all VPS host servers. The hardware configuration includes dual Intel® 5410 Quad Core 2.33 GHz processors, mirrored OS drives, and a Raid 6 configuration for the data array that ensures redundancies and fail-safes in the event one or more disk drives experience hardware failure.

“By using only our most robust, custom built server hardware, we have been able to assure customers that our VPS environment is not only an affordable solution, but also a highly reliable one,” added Cichon.
