Overland Park, Kansas – (The Hosting News) – September 28, 2007 – Web host and Internet solutions provider, Aplus.Net, has unveiled an extensive overhaul and redesign of its main website, designed to update the company’s image, while offering improved navigation.
Gabriel Murphy, President and CEO of Aplus.Net commented, ”We worked hard to come up with a dynamic and customer-friendly design that reflects the fact that, although our emphasis and our expertise are still firmly based upon helping small businesses succeed online, we’re also entering into an exciting new era for Aplus.Net and our more than 90,000 customers.”
According to the company, while the new website boasts a modernized look and feel, it is still consistent with the company brand and immediately recognizable as Aplus.Net. The color palette remains the same, and Aplus.Net’s logo, which was itself overhauled in May, will also be left unchanged. The site’s layout continues to reflects a simple, classic look and feel, but with modern flourishes, updated graphics, and greatly improved ease of use. Gone are the constantly shifting sub-menus that once followed cursors through the horizontal main menu. The main menu remains horizontal, but is now accompanied by a new animated sidebar to provide improved visibility for Aplus.Netâ€™s most popular products and services.
Ryan Elledge, Chief Operations Officer at Aplus.Net offered, ”Our many customers are the foundation of Aplus.Net, and so we wanted to offer them a website that’s easier than ever to navigate and to understand. These improvements were designed first and foremost to make the Aplus.Net shopping experience as customer-friendly and as enjoyable as possible. Secondly, it was important to update our image to let the world know that, whatever new advances the future of online business may bring, you’ll find it here first.”
The launch was timed to occur just days before the much-anticipated unveiling of the new Aplus.Net web design page (scheduled for the first of October), which will offer the newly acquired web Image brand of web design templates. Sub-domains for Domain Names and Dedicated Servers have already been successfully launched in recent weeks, as well.
Mr. Murphy continued, ”There’s a lot in store for this company. As we continue to expand our web hosting base and fully integrate the Web Image brand into the Aplus.Net family, we’ll also be moving into the next generation of Internet services, such as Web 2.0 and Software-as-a-Service. It’s essential for our website to emphasize that this is a visionary company, an industry leader.”
In August, Aplus finalized its acquisition of full-service Internet marketing and website development company based in White Plains, New York, WebImage. Aplus.Net was represented by RBC Daniels in the transaction and financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. WebImage is best known for its highly streamlined approach to volume web design, with its business model focused on premium Internet presence solutions for small businesses. In addition, WebImage positions itself as a business partner for small- to medium-sized businesses seeking a single business partner to provide an Internet presence solution complete with design, hosting and marketing services.
WebImage was formerly a business unit of White Plains, New York-based TSV Group. Felix Rodriguez, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TSV Group remarked, ”We’ve worked hard to make the WebImage brand synonymous with excellence and value, and we have complete confidence that under Aplus.Net, with its distinctive history of technological innovation, that reputation will grow even stronger.”
