Sitelutions Again Offers High-Tech Assistance to Hurricane Victims

Share Article

Sitelutions, a leading provider of dynamic hosting solutions and business continuity services announced on Friday that it will be donating free Enterprise-level backup e-mail services to non-profit organizations already affected by Hurricane Katrina and those expecting to be affected by Hurricane Rita.

Sitelutions, a subsidiary of InfoRelay Online Systems, Inc., and leading provider of low-cost Domain Name Registration, Web Hosting, and free URL Redirection, DNS and Dynamic DNS services, announced today that it will donate Enterprise-level backup e-mail services and DNS services to non-profit organizations that have already been affected by Hurricane Katrina and to non-profit organizations expecting to be affected by Hurricane Rita.

Sitelutions offers a highly-redundant backup e-mail service, using multiple high-end, RAID-protected servers, each at Class A data centers, connected to multiple bandwidth providers using BGP4 routing. Upon failure of the customer's primary mail server, Sitelutions backup mail clusters immediately begin to receive and cache incoming e-mail. The Sitelutions backup mail system then automatically detects primary server recovery, and delivers cached mail shortly after the primary server becomes operational. Using multiple layers of redundancy, the Sitelutions backup e-mail system can protect small business, mid-sized business, and large enterprises against loss of valuable e-mail. Without backup e-mail services, if connectivity is lost to an organization's primary mail server, or if the server hardware fails in any way, important incoming mail may be lost, or bounced back to the sender. Since large storms and hurricanes often cause power outages, backup mail services are indispensable to companies within areas prone to hurricanes and other natural disasters.

In September of 2004, Sitelutions management donated backup mail services to non-profit organizations that fell victim to Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Ivan. According to members of Sitelutions management, the company noticed a large surge in demand for backup e-mail services in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. With additional hurricanes on the way, demand continues to be strong.

Sitelutions Team Lead and President Russell Weiss commented, "Last year many non-profits took advantage of our donated backup e-mail offerings during the hurricane seasion. It was very satisfying for us to read some very heartfelt letters of personal thanks from those who accepted our donation. We'd like to continue to give back to the community by extending our help once again to those in need."

Sitelutions offers three backup e-mail packages ranging in price from $18 to $99 per year, with a setup fee of just $5. Backup mail services are provisioned nearly instantly, and become fully operational within one hour of purchase. Services may be purchased online, at
