Web Crossing 5.0, Web Crossing Express 5.0 Debut

Send Article to a Friend

Web Crossing 5.0, Web Crossing Express 5.0 Debut -- Web Crossing, Inc. has announced a pair of new products, Web Crossing 5.0 and Web Crossing Express 5.0. Web Crossing 5.0 is the latest version of the company's powerful server platform and collaboration tools, which include Web services, email (POP, SMTP, IMAP, and mailing lists), FTP, newsgroups, discussions, and much more. Web Crossing 5.0 offers new customization features, a plug-in architecture for extensibility, and an interesting approach to mirroring local and remote files with only a Web browser. Upgrades to Web Crossing 5.0 start at $120, depending on traffic levels, and new copies cost between $300 and $35,000, also depending on traffic. Despite those scary-looking prices, you can try some of Web Crossing's core features with the new Web Crossing Express 5.0, which offers a significant subset of Web Crossing's features for free. Most notably, Web Crossing Express lacks most of Web Crossing's collaboration tools, leaving it as a more pure Internet server platform with the capability to serve Web pages, email, FTP, and more.
