Web hosting software provider Purplenova (purplenova.com) announced on Wednesday it is offering Purplenova 3.1 – The Easy Web Server, enabling users to host any content directly from an Internet-connected PC.
Purplenova 3.1 supports domain names, and also supports hosting of Web services and Web applications. The software provides unlimited hosting directly from end-user machines as broadband connections are becoming faster and reliable.
"There are upward of 100 million broadband connections today, with most providers following a bucket pricing model," says Milind Pandit, VP of business development at Purplenova. "A broadband subscriber with even a mid-level PC configuration can now get more from his/her broadband and his/her PC by using the infrastructure to directly Web host content."
Broadband providers and hosting service providers can bundle Purplenova as a value-added service to their end-users. The company has already signed up partnerships with several hosting providers and Web communities.
