Verio, a subsidiary of NTT Communications and a provider of IP and managed hosting services, this week announced new promotions for its viaVerio reseller program.
The company also introduced a new entry-level plan for its Virtual Private Server version 2 (VPS v2) hosting product.
Verio is offering free setup for resellers targeting SMBs, and who purchase Verio’s VPS v2 or Managed Private Server v2 a $495 value and up to $500 in free migration services when new resellers join the company’s partner program.
New resellers also are eligible to receive their first three months of service for free. Existing resellers earn a free month of service when they order any VPS v2 or MPS v2 plans throughout September.
The offers are good through Sept. 30, 2005.
“The focus on our reseller and partner channels has always been an important element to Verio’s overall business strategy,” says Jim Ciampaglio, director of SMB reseller sales for the viaVerio program. “We believe these promotions give new and existing resellers another incentive to become part of Verio’s strong network of partners while growing their business at the same time.”
Meanwhile, Verio further has created a new entry-level plan for VPS v2 resellers. The VPS v2 Basic plan features increased disk space to 1GB, and includes free setup, free data transfer, root access, as well as unlimited mailboxes and virtual hosts, until the end of September.
VPS v2 Basic is available to viaVerio resellers who work with the SME market, at a starting price of $55.
“The new VPS v2 Basic plan delivers all the features of the VPS technology at a lower entry cost that meets the needs of an additional segment of the reseller market, and provides all resellers another revenue-generating option,” says Ciampaglio.
Verio also has bolstered disk space on the rest of its VPS product line, both for reseller and retail accounts. The levels for reseller plans are: VPS v2 Basic with 1GB, a 33 percent increase; VPS 1000 with 2GB, a 60 percent increase; VPS 2000 with 3GB, a 20 percent increase; and VPS 3000 with 8GB, a 60 percent increase.
