Ingo Buemmerstede, Hosting Group & Customer Service Manager at Verio: “We’re fully
convinced that our new range is especially attractive due to the excellent value it
represents. Users need to consider one thing in particular when deciding on a web hosting
contract: In addition to price, it is necessary to carefully review the range of the
features on offer. This applies not only to the basic service features like available disk
space or maximum data transfer per month, but also to the number and attractiveness of
software solutions, which should be easy to install. Only by doing so the customer will be
able to save time and money over the long term. With the integration of SimpleScripts,
we’ve created a range of extremely attractive hosting packages for our users.”
