Sitelutions Insider's Club with Premium DNS
Reston, VA (Vocus) October 6, 2010
Sitelutions, a leading provider of web hosting, domain registration services, and advanced dynamic DNS solutions announced today that it has given out over one million days of free hosting to commemorate the launch of its new features, service offerings, and web site.
Sitelutions has introduced two new hosting packages known as the "InfiniSite" and the "InfiniPro" package, starting at $3.95 per month and $5.95 per month respectively . Both packages offer unlimited domain hosting, disk storage and bandwidth to end-users, while only the second offers a unique, dedicated IP address. While Sitelutions performs data backups of all hosting accounts, only users with the InfiniPro package have full 24/7 self-service access to restore data from backups at no additional charge.
Because many Sitelutions customers held more expensive packages than the two new packages that have been introduced, Sitelutions has reduced costs for existing clients by changing their accounts over to one of the new packages. In doing so, Sitelutions has provided credit for any pre-paid time for more expensive account types. Sitelutions also provided many of its users with free five day account extensions as a way to thank users for their long-term loyalty. Between the five day account extensions issued and the other account extensions, Sitelutions has given away more than one million days of free hosting to its customers.
The new website, which was released on September 20th, incorporates a more modern look and feel than the previous site. Sitelutions has provided advanced dynamic DNS services since 2003, however with the release of its new system, users who pay a nominal membership charge to join the "Sitelutions Insider's Club with Premium DNS" can use a full SOAP API to control all DNS features offered by Sitelutions. The SOAP API allows for software developers to write programs and scripts that will interact with Sitelutions to perform bulk DNS modifications and updates. Club members also receive discounted rates on nearly all services
offered by the company.
As part of the launch event, Sitelutions is providing discounted domain pricing until Friday, October 8th. Until Friday, Club members can register domains for as low as $5.95 per year, while general users of Sitelutions who have not joined the Insider's club can register domains for as low as $7.59 per year. Sitelutions has also introduced a WHOIS domain privacy feature, which allow customers that register domain names to keep their personal information private. The importance of this feature stems from the fact that ICANN regulations require that all domain registrants provide valid contact information, which is then listed in a public WHOIS database. Sitelutions WHOIS privacy offers a form of privacy protection for those who do not want to make their information public. This feature also includes a unique e-mail forwarding service, which automatically changes the publicly listed e-mail address on a regular basis. This way, if e-mail addresses are harvested from the WHOIS database, the chance of the registrant receiving spam is greatly reduced.
Sitelutions has differentiated itself from other hosting companies by being the only provider to offer an all-in-one solution, providing domain name registration services, DNS and dynamic DNS with API access, web hosting, and backup mail services. Since 2003, Sitelutions has also donated a portion of its profits to charities chosen by its users.
