Newark, Delaware – (The Hosting News) – September 6, 2007 – Web hosting provider and Microsoft customer-focused solutions firm, HostMySite.com, is sponsoring the Newark Film Festival for the second consecutive year, scheduled to run from September 6th to the 9th.
While enjoying the reputation garnered as Delaware’s fastest growing community event, this year’s festival will present 23 feature films with over 67 showings. The event was founded by film aficionados Barry Schlecker and Lisa Lucas.
Mr. Schlecker remarked, ”I just want folks in Delaware to have an opportunity to view great movies on the big screen. The fact is, the Newark Cinema Center is the best venue around. People constantly tell me that they’re disappointed with most of the mainstream movies available in the multiplexes. At the Newark Film Festival, people actually applaud at the end of the film – they are that thrilled to view great films.”
Greer Firestone, Event Coordinator added, ”The 3rd Annual Newark Film Festival, has hit its stride this year. Welcoming back HostMySite.com for the second year as our Named Sponsor is a major factor in establishing credibility for this annual event. The mission of the festival is to showcase independent and documentary films that would otherwise not be shown on the big screen in Delaware. We have premiered many films in the state and are proud to have the Delaware premiere of ‘The First Saturday In May,’ a film about Barbaro.”
Monish Sood, Director of Marketing with HostMySite.com commented. ”This is a great way for HostMySite.com to give back to the community. The arts enliven our imaginations – and support of the arts is a calling which HostMySite.com embraces. This is a great event with outstanding films. We appreciate the opportunity to once again participate in the Newark Film Festival.”
Recently HostMySite.com began offering a simpler interface to manage Windows servers, through its partnership with creator of Windows-based control panel, the Helm, and software-based systems and services developer, WebHost Automation Ltd. Helm is considered unique among control panels in that it interacts directly with the services on a server, rather than storing settings in its own database. For example, if a customer were to make changes to IIS, DNS, or email directly on the server, those changes would be reflected in Helm.
HostMySite.com celebrated its 10th year in the hosting industry business this month, while earning placement on INC. 500’s last two lists of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. Founded by Lou Honick (CEO) and Neil Heuer (CTO) in 1997, the Newark-based Internet technology company was also recently mentioned and featured, as a ‘Great Place to Work,’ by the Delaware Today magazine publication. The pair launched the company with a small amount of capital made from their website design business. Now, both are prepping for a move to their third state-of-the-art facility which will house a larger technology infrastructure that supports the growing number of customers (over 65,000 in 126 countries), and ample room for the amount of employees (180) needed to support it. The new facility is anticipated to bring a significant number of new jobs to the Newark area.
