Leading Web Services Provider the First to Offer Dedicated Customers More Than Basic Features
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ August 25, 2004 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Affinity Internet, the leading web services provider for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the launch of premium web services for its dedicated hosting customers. The announcement follows on the heels of AffinityÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s release of its premium web services suites for shared hosting customers. This new offering gives businesses with more complex hosting needs the first premium site creation, marketing, management, security and enhancement tools that are integrated with dedicated hosting services.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œUntil now, dedicated hosting providers have generally offered very little besides basic hosting and management tools,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Peter Chambers, CEO, Affinity Internet. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWhat weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve learned from speaking with our customers is that although dedicated customers generally require fewer technical services, they still want help building, marketing, maintaining and optimizing their web sites and applications.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
The premium services bundles include everything a small to medium-sized business needs to create, manage, market and maximize its online presence, including site creation, marketing, management and security. The bundles are fully integrated into AffinityÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s ValueWeb Dedicated hosting offerings, and supported by AffinityÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s customer service ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œguidesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ available 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week, 365 days-a-year.
In addition, ValueWeb Dedicated customers are secure in the knowledge that their servers reside in state-of-the-art data centers with physical security measures that include card key access, surveillance cameras and state-of-the-art fire suppression. Affinity also ensures the integrity of its network through partnerships with top-tier providers in bandwidth, security, switching and network monitoring.
Earlier this year, ValueWeb Dedicated began offering dedicated services starting at only $59 per-month ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ perfect for customers with web sites that require both more advanced applications and administrative flexibility, and for resellers who provide hosting services as a value-add for their customers. Resellers of AffinityÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s products now have the option to offer their customers the premium services as well.
