CNET News.com: Dell cuts prices on Web hosting services

Jul 14, 2000, 16:01 (9 Talkback[s])

"Tim Mattox, general manager of DellHost, said Windows 2000 has been surprisingly popular, despite the extra cost to customers. While Linux is virtually free, Dell Web hosting must license Windows 2000 from Microsoft, meaning Dell must charge more for the services. Mattox estimated that about half of the DellHost customers choose Linux. That could change with the expanded availability of Windows 2000."

"As DellHost expanded the use of Windows 2000, it also cut the cost of PowerApp server Linux Web hosting from $249 to $199 a month, plus a $350 setup fee. The fee includes use of a PowerApp server with a 600-MHz Pentium III processor, 64MB of SDRAM, 9GB of SCSI storage and Red Hat Linux 6.2, plus 21GB of data transfer per month."
