Business hosting provider LeaseWeb, in collaboration with Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), has announced a new low-cost dedicated hosting service targeted at small and midsize businesses. LeaseWeb Dedicated Windows Express Server allows customers to be online within 24 hours with a proprietary start-up server and broadband package.
Dedicated hosting -- as opposed to shared -- offers companies a complete system without the threat of negative performance caused by other users. The Windows platform guarantees continuity of the solution through upgrades. LeaseWeb's network has been shown to have a realized uptime of 99.99 percent, according to a WatchMouse study in 2006.
LeaseWeb is based in the Netherlands with offices throughout Europe and in New York.
