01:16:20 - 30 May 2007

ColdFusion web host HostMySite.com has launched free hosted accounts for the new release of Adobe's ColdFusion 8 beta. Adobe ColdFusion 8 was released in beta today as well, making HostMySite.com the first ColdFusion host to offer the new product to the developer marketplace.

HostMySite.com has been selected by Adobe to be among the few elite ColdFusion web hosting companies to offer the free beta in order to demonstrate the functionality of the new release. Adobe ColdFusion 8 is a fast and easy way to create Internet applications. It solves the day-to-day challenges faced by developers, integrates in complex enterprise environments, and delivers rich and engaging application experiences for users.

Developers may sign up for the free ColdFusion beta accounts at: www.HostMySite.com/CF8.

Particularly well suited to dynamic Internet applications using a variety of databases, the new release of ColdFusion permits developers to easily extend and customize the ColdFusion scripting language, CFML, through custom tags, reusable object-based components, and user-defined functions, as well integrate with Java, .NET, and SOAP web services.

Mr. Tim Buntel, Senior Product Marketing Manager for ColdFusion at Adobe commented on the new release, "Having a relationship with HostMySite.com has been great for us. They'll offer accounts that allow customers to try out the ColdFusion 8 functionality on a shared hosting platform.

If I had to say one thing about the release overall that this is Adobe ColdFusion. ColdFusion 8 shows what happens when you inject ColdFusion with Adobe's DNA. It's really about making a great experience for the application user, with PDF's, rich Internet applications, multi-media presentations - much greater integration in the enterprise. We're doing for .NET what we've done for java in the past as well. Additionally we're enhancing the developer's experience."

HostMySite.com has been a pioneer in ColdFusion, hosting many of the industry's premier ColdFusion websites - including those of ColdFusion guru Ben Forta, and also Tim Buntel's ColdFusion website. The company has been offering ColdFusion since it's inception in 1997, and continues to support innovation in ColdFusion web hosting.

Monish Sood, Director of Marketing at HostMySite.com added, "HostMySite.com is committed to a strong partnership with Adobe ColdFusion and the entire ColdFusion developer community. This free ColdFusion 8 beta program will allow everyone with an interest in the new release to "test drive" the new features and to become familiar with the greatly expanded functionality now available. We look forward to seeing what the ColdFusion developer community can do with this impressive new product!"

In making the case for current ColdFusion users to move to the new platform, Mr. Buntel added, "For businesses running ColdFusion today there are compelling reasons to move to ColdFusion 8 even if you don't rewrite a single line of code. Simply moving those applications to ColdFusion 8 will yield a range of benefits - it's going to be faster, it's going to be more stable, and applications can be monitored in production. Existing ColdFusion developers will be able to take advantage of the enhanced features very quickly and easily."
