Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRESS RELEASE) May 29, 2012 -- Hostek.com Announces ColdFusion 10 Hosting Services

Experienced ColdFusion web hosting provider, Hostek.com, adds ColdFusion 10 to its range of ColdFusion hosting plans.

Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRESS RELEASE) May 29, 2012 - Hostek.com, a leading provider of Adobe ColdFusion hosting and Windows web hosting services, announced today that it will become one of the first major web hosts to offer ColdFusion 10 web hosting plans, effective immediately. Introducing ColdFusion 10 hosting shortly after its release is another example of Hostek.com's commitment to being a leader in the ColdFusion hosting arena.

"Hostek.com is excited to announce the launch of ColdFusion 10 hosting," says Brian Anderson, CEO at Hostek.com. "We have been providing ColdFusion web hosting since 2002 and recently offered developers a ColdFusion 10 Beta hosting experience. Like many developers, we have been anxiously awaiting the availability of ColdFusion 10 and have prioritized making the platform available to our customers right away."

Adobe ColdFusion is a rapid application development platform that uses an easy-to-understand programming language called ColdFusion Markup Language, or CFML. ColdFusion web hosting services make it quicker and easier for developers to create dynamic, database-driven web applications that attract visitors and provide engaging content. Adobe continues to modify and improve ColdFusion regularly, with ColdFusion 10 representing the latest release of the popular platform. ColdFusion 10 offers a number of new features, such as HTML5 built-in support, security updates including improved encryption of data, and object-relational mapping for building applications that do not depend on database access. The new features of ColdFusion 10 give developers the tools required to create even more exciting and dynamic applications.

"Starting today, all new Windows platform based ColdFusion shared hosting and ColdFusion VPS hosting orders will be deployed with ColdFusion 10," says Anderson. "As new applications become increasingly tailored to the great features of ColdFusion 10, our customers will be ready to use this software immediately. For developers, this represents the opportunity to continue using ColdFusion 10 hosting from our Beta service, or make the transition to this latest version for their next projects."

With years of experience in ColdFusion web hosting plans, Hostek.com offers a range of ColdFusion hosting services on the Windows operating system, including shared ColdFusion hosting, ColdFusion VPS hosting, and ColdFusion dedicated servers. Each of these plans come with generous system resources, including cloud disk space for dependable availability, MS SQL and MySQL databases, and 99.99% guaranteed uptime. Some of Hostek.com's ColdFusion 10 hosting plans feature unlimited bandwidth, disk space, and databases. Each of these plans is easy to use, thanks to Hostek.com's customized Windows hosting control panel.

"If you are a ColdFusion developer, or you have a ColdFusion based site, and you do not currently host with Hostek.com, we want to earn your business," says Anderson. "Hostek.com is committed to providing the highest quality ColdFusion hosting services in the industry, and we believe that ColdFusion 10 is a must-have for our customers. We will continue to be at the forefront of ColdFusion hosting as the platform develops and changes in the years to come."

Hostek.com continues as a prominent ColdFusion hosting leader by staying current with the latest developments in ColdFusion web hosting and working to make the latest features available on all ColdFusion hosting plans. With Hostek.com's rapid and efficient deployment of ColdFusion 10 web hosting plans, the hosting company is looking forward to helping existing and future customers with the latest cutting-edge web development technology and ColdFusion hosting.

Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRWEB) February 23, 2012 -- Hostek.com Announces New PHP Version Switching Feature on All Windows Hosting Services

Leading Windows web hosting and PHP hosting services provider Hostek.com gives customers the ability to choose their preferred PHP version.

Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRESS RELEASE) February 23, 2012 -- Hostek.com, a provider of Windows web hosting, ColdFusion hosting, ASP.NET web hosting, and Linux hosting plans, announced today the addition of a new feature in the hosting company's control panel that lets Windows hosting service users switch between PHP 5.2 hosting and PHP 5.3 hosting, at will. With the increased flexibility, Hostek.com's new PHP version switch feature gives customers complete control over their PHP hosting applications.

"At Hostek.com, we realize there are many applications that require older versions of PHP and likewise, many that require the latest version of PHP to run properly," says Brian Anderson, CEO at Hostek.com. "By giving our customers the ability to change PHP versions, we are satisfying their needs regarding a specific PHP version, without the hassle of having to change servers to get the PHP version they need. Additionally, we are excited to also announce for those PHP developers who want or need to be on the cutting edge of the latest technology, that on our newest servers we have added the ability to switch to the latest PHP 5.4 RC version and will be updating to the final release of PHP 5.4 when available."

PHP is a server-side scripting language used to create and run dynamic web applications. PHP web hosting services can be used to deploy such software as WordPress or osCommerce to create the kind of database-driven content that not only attracts customers but also helps to encourage regular visits. PHP is a language that continues to change on a regular basis, with new versions being introduced regularly. As a result, some older web applications become incompatible with the latest PHP versions, while newer software depends on the very latest functionality. Hostek.com's new PHP version switch tool allows customers to choose the version best suited to their needs.

"With many Windows web hosting solutions, customers find themselves locked-in to whichever PHP version their Windows hosting provider chooses," says Anderson. "But not every customer is the same. Some aim to run the old software that they know and love, while others use applications dependent on new PHP enhancements. Our customers can now click the 'PHP Settings' button within their Windows Control Panel (WCP), and switch to PHP version 5.2.x or 5.3.x as needed. We have also taken this opportunity to make the creation of custom php.ini files easier, allowing Windows, ASP.NET, and ColdFusion web hosting customers to alter more advanced PHP settings."

As a configuration file that holds the core settings for a PHP web hosting service, php.ini remains, for the most part, invisible to the vast majority of users. Hostek.com has tailored the default php.ini file to suit most web applications, freeing PHP hosting customers to go about launching their web presence. However, on some occasions, certain applications may have specific PHP configuration requirements. Now, Hostek.com customers can use the Windows Control Panel to easily integrate their own php.ini file.

"Our support team routinely had to move sites to different servers to give our customers the PHP version they needed to run their applications, so we implemented the ability for our customers to have this control without having to change servers," says Anderson. "At Hostek.com, we continuously work hard to put the tools in the customer's hands that they need, while providing them with the support and new technologies they expect. That's how we continue to offer the best hosting service possible, why new customers sign up with Hostek.com every day, and why our existing customers are incredibly happy with their choice."

Although Hostek.com has grown to be a well-respected leader in the world of shared hosting services, the firm routinely evaluates and assesses its service range to identify improvements that would benefit customers the most. The new additions of PHP version switching on Windows hosting plans and custom php.ini creation mark the company's continued commitment to offering the most versatile and flexible web hosting services in the industry.

Customers who would like to learn more about Hostek.com and their range of Windows web hosting services are encouraged to visit hostek.com for more details.

Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRWEB) September 12, 2011 -- Hostek.com Launches New Linux ColdFusion Hosting Service

Specialist Windows ColdFusion 9 hosting provider Hostek.com now offers ColdFusion Linux hosting to customers and hosting resellers.

Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRESS RELEASE) September 12, 2011 -- Hostek.com, a specialist in Adobe ColdFusion 9 web hosting and Microsoft ASP.NET web hosting, announced today a competitive new choice of Linux ColdFusion website hosting options. By offering customers and resellers this useful alternative to its popular Windows hosting services, Hostek.com is making it easier than ever to develop rich and exciting new web applications.

"We have been offering Windows ColdFusion hosting services for almost ten years, and have been an Adobe Solution Partner since 2009," says Jon Cavanaugh, Director of Business Development at Hostek.com. "Customers have joined and remained with Hostek.com because we truly understand ColdFusion website hosting and work to develop services for ColdFusion. As a result of our ongoing success in this area, we are proud to give our customers and hosting resellers the chance to customize their ColdFusion 9 hosting service with a choice of operating systems."

ColdFusion Markup Language, or CFML, is a scripting language that uses simple, easily understandable syntax to handle data from a database, and ultimately to display this data to visitors in new and interesting ways. By using ColdFusion Markup Language on a ColdFusion server, developers can create and deploy dynamic, content-rich, and highly interactive web applications. Without the use of a scripting language with the power and versatility of CFML, developers can find their web presences overly static, lacking the true interactivity that defines the online experience. Hostek.com launched their range of Windows ColdFusion hosting services in 2002 and has since helped businesses and individuals worldwide to transform their online activity.

"ColdFusion hosting is a powerful, versatile way to develop web applications, whatever operating system it is offered on," says Cavanaugh. "Our customers have proven just how vital a dependable, reliable ColdFusion server is in modern web development, and we have seen continued growth in this area of business in recent years. Our decision to launch Linux ColdFusion 9 services comes as a result of ongoing demand for the flexibility of ColdFusion on a Linux server with Linux-specific hosting features and cPanel included as standard."

The ability of ColdFusion to deliver creative new web applications is consistent regardless of operating system, but it is outside of ColdFusion that the choice of Linux or Windows comes into play. While ColdFusion Windows hosting allows the use of alternative scripting languages such as Microsoft ASP.NET or classic ASP, developers who do not use these facilities may be better suited to a Linux plan. One specific example is the option to use cPanel, one of the most popular website control panels available, which is offered as standard on all Hostek.com Linux ColdFusion 9 hosting plans. This incredibly feature-rich control panel offers unrivalled control to users of Linux web hosting solutions. In addition, some ColdFusion developers may wish to use other common applications such as Wordpress or osCommerce and, as a matter of preference, choose to do this on Linux.

"At the end of the day, this is a matter of taste," says Cavanaugh. "Some people just prefer to work with Linux rather than Windows. Now, we are adding yet another customization option for every Hostek.com customer and every Hostek.com reseller. We have been consistently serious about our role in ColdFusion hosting and, with this new option to operate on Linux, we remain committed to offering the most competitive ColdFusion hosting services.

Since first offering ColdFusion hosting in 2002, Hostek.com has grown to become a distinguished figure in the ColdFusion web hosting industry. By adding a selection of ColdFusion 9 Linux hosting services to an already varied and popular choice of Windows ColdFusion plans, Hostek.com is now offering an incredibly varied service range that is sure to maintain customer satisfaction and encourage future growth.

Customers interested in learning more about Hostek.com and their range of Linux ColdFusion hosting services are encouraged to visit hostek.com.
