Monday with the Editor: Web hosting services

Hallo everyone

Yes! It's true. We have gone into the Web hosting business. Since we came online 2˝ years ago, we have evolved naturally into a directory and search engine. Now, we realise that Web hosting is the natural path for us to take to grow our business.

We haven't had much luck with getting in advertising revenue. You could say we are looking at "chicken-feet" income, so to speak. To date, we haven't even got our first paycheck for the advertisements an e-partner has been placing here and that's because we have not hit the minimum payout amount agreed with them.

We do not offer the cheapest Web hosting services here or elsewhere in the world, and we do not aim to do that. Rather, we want to build up a clientele of private clients who think we can brush shoulders with them at a comfortable level. We want to take care of the hosting of their Web sites for them.

We want to be able to count on the Getforme branding to get in our Web hosting clients. We have been around for 2˝ years - in Internet years, that's almost an eternity. We have survived the dot-com crash, and we are still growing and working doubly hard.

These may be hard times, but we believe that as long as we work at growing a reliable robust Web hosting business, we will ride out the bad times and be around when the next wave of growth comes.

Whether you are an individual looking for a Web host to put up your homepage, or a group seeking to escape the annoyance of advertisement-plagued free Web hosting, or a small business seeking e-business opportunities, we are most happy to be able to serve you. We hope you will let Getforme host your Web site on our servers.

Our IBM servers are located in facilities in Florida, USA. The centre is equipped with complete state-of-the-art Cisco systems including redundant Cisco 7513 routers, a Gigabit Ethernet network, and a 24x7 Network Operations Centre. And some of the World backbones are AT&T and UUNet, two of the premier providers. The centre offers clean network bandwidth, 24-hour security, and reliable power.

Do think of us when you need Web hosting. Give us a call at (65) 9696 8336 or e-mail us at privateclients@getforme.com if you have any questions. We will try to accommodate your needs as best we can. To learn more about our Web hosting plans, click HERE!

You can e-mail to us your comments on the above FRONTPAGE STORY. Quote this number 100602 on the subject heading and address your e-mail to editor@getforme.com. Your comments will appear HERE!

NEW WEBSITES

priceline.com.sg  is an online travel service launched on 30 May 2002. Travellers who use it can slice an average of 20 per cent, and up to 30 per cent, off regular air ticket and hotel prices. But customers cannot pick a specific airline or hotel as this will be selected by Priceline from its pool of partners - 25 airlines and more than 8,000 hotels around the world. 

LoveByte.org.sg, has brief details of men and women on the market for a spouse. There is no limit to how many people they can choose, but the other party must consent before they meet. The web site is run by the Social Development Unit's Choice Match dating service.
