New Hosting Provider


Hi. Last week I ordered a Virtual Private Server by Versio. This VPS is now operational and is hosting the following sites:

Family van der Plaat
PlaatSoft
PlaatScrum
Education

I updated also all content of these sites because now all content, images and files are now located on the same server. Making maintenance and support much easier! If there are any problems (for example dead links) please let me know! Send an email to info@plaatsoft.nl
