Atlanta, Georgia – (The Hosting News) – May 1, 2006 –
The Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) unit has been expanded by EarthLink, Inc., to take advantage of the company’s recent acquisition of New Edge Networks.
EarthLink Business Solutions will build upon EarthLink’s five years of providing dial-up, high-speed access, and web hosting services to small to medium sized business customers. New Edge Networks builds and manages networks for businesses and communication providers nationwide.
Linda Beck, Executive Vice President and General Manager for EarthLink Business Solutions commented, ”EarthLink Business Solutions reflects the ever changing needs of the small business customer. In addition to meeting their demands for web hosting and expanded broadband access, we will soon be able to offer current and prospective clients direct access to payment processors similar to what New Edge provides to its multi-site consumers.”
According to the company, with New Edge Networks, EarthLink Business Solutions customers will have access to the largest broadband footprint in the country. They will gain a wide distribution network that includes major carriers; wholesale, direct and indirect reseller partners; agents, value-added resellers, system integrators and referral dealers. New Edge’s presence will also enable EarthLink’s retail and channel partners to sell business access nationwide.
As part of its expansion, EarthLink Business Solutions is introducing an enhanced web hosting Value-Added-Reseller program (VAR), enabling resellers to receive discounts of up to 60 percent off the regular rate, depending on volume. Domain registration would be free to value-added resellers who maintain a customer base of at least 50 accounts.
EarthLink’s Value-Added Resellers program is administered by dedicated account managers and receives 24-hour technical support. The web hosting solution operates on a redundant network of multiple T3 connections through multiple service providers with uptime exceeding 99.9% over the last few years.
Atlanta-based EarthLink serves over five million subscribers with Internet connectivity and customizable features, including dial-up, high-speed, voice, web hosting, wireless home networking and security.
