New York (PRWEB) July 24, 2006
Intermedia.NET, the US leader in Exchange hosting and Web hosting for small and medium businesses, today announced that it will offer WordPress, the best blogging software available, to its Web hosting customers as a free monthly service.
The blogging service allows users to create a professional-looking blog within their own Web site, instead of just being a subdomain of a third-party blogging provider like Blogger. After a one-time $5 setup fee, Intermedia.NET customers can immediately build a fully customized blog. The high-powered yet easy-to-use WordPress blogging software allows users access to all of the advanced powers that drive the many well-known professional blogs that have garnered so much Web attention.
“Blogging creates an interactive and consistently updated Web environment that lets businesses draw existing and prospective customers back to their site repeatedly,” said Serguei Sofinski, CEO of Intermedia.NET. “Through the free WordPress software, our customers can now create a page on their existing domain that will grant endless opportunity to relay business messages in new and interesting ways.”
Once users download the WordPress software from Intermedia.NET, they can begin building their blog immediately. Fully W3C standards-compliant, WordPress allows blogs to be customized to exactly mirror the existing company Website. WordPress also supports all of the features of professional blogs including trackbacks, multiple authors, auto-correct typography and dynamic generation from style sheets. Users also have the option of password-protection in order to control comments to their blog.
Other benefits of Intermedia.NET’s WordPress blog offering include Ping-O-Matic support, which means maximum exposure on search engines; cross-browser bookmarklets that make it easy to publish a blog or add links with minimum effort; XML-RPC interface, which supports extended versions of Blogger API, MetaWeblog API and MovableType API; easy importing; and full user registration that allows visitors to register, maintain profiles and leave authenticated comments.
Intermedia.NET offers a wide variety of Exchange hosting and Web hosting plans, from the smallest businesses with three users and upwards, to substantial mid-sized organizations. Hosted Web plans start at $5.95 per month. For further details on the Intermedia.NET WordPress blog offering, please visit http://www.intermedia.net/blogging.
