Hostway Rewards Customers By Doubling Bandwidth on Hosting Accounts [June 16, 2004]

Upgrade Boosts Site Traffic Capacity, Enhances Multi-media Performance

Chicago, June 16, 2004 - Customers of shared Web-hosting plans from industry leader Hostway Corp. will enjoy higher site traffic and multi-media performance capabilities as the result of a new service upgrade that automatically doubles their Web site's connectivity bandwidth.

The company said today it has increased the bandwidth of its three most popular shared-hosting packages as a tangible way of expressing its appreciation for those customers. Current and new customers of Hostway's Value Plus, Gold and Gold Plus hosting services automatically receive the new, expanded bandwidth. In the case of the Gold Plus plan, Hostway has boosted the bandwidth to 40 gigabytes from 20 gigabytes per month, making it virtually unlimited.

The robust Hostway network infrastructure, which goes through constant upgrades, allows it to double the bandwidth allowance for its customers without impacting the performance.

"Our customers have made us one of the most successful and fastest -growing Web hosts in the world," said John Lee, Vice President of Marketing for Hostway. "We're committed to constantly improving our services to them, and staying at least one step ahead of their growing needs. Increasing bandwidth not only will boost their traffic capacity, but will give them the ability to handle a variety of multi-media applications to improve their sites' functionality without having to worry about traffic overage charges."
