As a business owner, I check email and web links more frequently from a mobile device than a desktop. That’s why it was critical for, and all of its tools and resources, to be accessible from whatever device someone is using at the moment., a leading online business document filing company that helps entrepreneurs start a business and keep a business in corporate compliance, announced the launch of its new website. The site redesign makes it even easier for small business owners to quickly navigate to their particular needs, whether that’s launching a new business by setting up a sole proprietorship, incorporating a business or forming an LLC or running an existing a business.

The new site addresses today’s mobile reality, where an increasing number of entrepreneurs are using their smartphones and tablets to research companies, find information, and even make purchases. According to a 2012 Keynote Mobile User Survey, 62% of tablet users reported using theirs to purchase products and/or services online, and 42% of smartphone users did the same with their phones. The new site is built from the ground up to be fully compatible across a number of operating systems, browsers, display sizes, and resolutions.

“Online DIY legal/document filing is one of the older online industries. Websites were around long before iPhones and Android devices, and that means not all have kept pace with today’s newer technologies and mobile lifestyles,” said Nellie Akalp,’s co-founder and CEO. “As a business owner, I check email and web links more frequently from a mobile device than a desktop. That’s why it was critical for, and all of its tools and resources, to be accessible from whatever device someone is using at the moment.”

The revamped website reflects co-founders’, Phil and Nellie Akalp’s, longstanding desire to make legal processes as simple, streamlined, and affordable as possible for small business owners.

As a law student in 1997, Phil felt that a small business owner shouldn’t have to pay lawyers $2,000 to incorporate a business. Between law school classes, Phil and his wife Nellie, published a website that allowed small business owners to incorporate for just $99. This was in the early days of what soon became the “do it yourself” legal industry.

“Back in the late nineties, the Internet was fresh and exciting. All you needed was a half-baked idea and a connection to the Internet to start an online business and begin raking in the revenues,” said Phil Akalp, Esq., CFO and Chief Creative Officer at

“Today, it takes a lot more to run a profitable web-based business. But we’re not complaining. Because we’re working in an established, competitive industry, we’re all that more driven to disrupt and build better, smarter, and cheaper tools for small business owners,” he added.

The new website has also been streamlined to ensure that its free small business tools are easier to find and use. For example, for entrepreneurs looking to start a business, there’s a simple Business Structure Wizard to help find the best business structure. Existing businesses can turn to’s B.I.Z. (Business Information Zone), a complimentary corporate compliance tool that helps keep a company in good standing with state filings to avoid late fees and penalties.

Through CorpNet, Nellie and Phil have empowered thousands of entrepreneurs to start their own business, by helping them form an LLC or incorporate a business in order to start and protect their new business ventures the right way. CorpNet customers rave about the company’s friendly, helpful service, including five-star CorpNet Reviews on TrustLink.
