There needs to be more WDIMPFS hosting options!

What is WDIMPFS? A server with Windows, a DNS server, IIS, a Mail server, a control Panel of some sort, an FTP server and SQL Server.

A WDIMPFS server is a good hosting option for people transitioning from shared hosting to VPS. People who like the benefits of shared hosting - they don’t need to configure or manage their own server - but need or want something that has more performance and is less affected by other sites on the same server.

Some companies, most notably Arvixe, provide WDIMPFS VPS hosting. Their Windows VPS servers come full configured and ready to go with Windows Server, BIND DNS server, IIS, hMail Server, WebsitePanel, FileZilla Server and SQL Server Express (they also have a bunch of extras like PHP and MySQL).

But note that I wouldn’t recommend Arvixe, as their support is next to useless.

Perhaps there’s other hosting companies that offer similar pre-configured, all-in-one VPS hosting but if there are they don’t do a good job of promoting it.

I think there would be plenty of demand for a well marketed WDIMPFS hosting plan.
