) released two announcements this week, introducing first two new Windows virtual private server plans and a range of new Linux-based VPS plans shortly thereafter.


The Linux plans are a new venture for the Microsoft partner, which had previously only offered hosting based on the Windows platform.

On Friday, May 9, Easy CGI added the two new Windows VPS plans, which brought its total number of VPS offerings to five. The Dedicated X10 and Dedicated X20 plans offered 100 and 200 GB of disk space respectively, along with two and four GB of RAM, and two terabytes of monthly bandwidth each.

Easy CGI says it limits the number of virtual servers per node on all its VPS plans, a promise that is a bit of a rarity in the hosting business.

On Saturday, Easy CGI said it had introduced five VPS plans based on the Linux environment, roughly equivalent in features to their counterparts on the Windows platform. The company says it had previously offered Windows hosting exclusively.

"Although we are a Windows Web hosting provider," says Dan Richfield, Easy CGI president, in the release, "we pride ourselves on flexibility and our ability to deliver what customers want. There's a definite market out there for Linux-based hosting and we are one of the few hosting companies offering dedicated VPS on both Windows and Linux platforms."

Also on Tuesday, theWHIR reported on the introduction of several new Windows VPS plans at UK-based hosting provider Easyspace.
