VisiStat Launches New Analytic Suite

VisiStat, a provider of web analytic products, announced that they have rolled out a whole new web analytic suite. The new product is called ExpressStat, and pricing begins at $14.95 per month. Volume pricing is also available.

The company states that, “ExpressStat operates on the XML-based SOAP protocol, which ensures seamless inter-operability across any computing platform. With the new API, Web site providers can now give their customers Web analytics while reducing the complexity of managing those accounts.”

“The product itself has always been simple to use, now we’ve made it just as easy to install and manage it across multiple accounts,” says Stephen Oachs, CEO of VisiStat. “Offering customers real-time analytics is a great way to help site developers looking to differentiate their services. And it’s something that delivers concrete business benefits to the user.”


Template Monster Breaks Off Partnership with Ultravertex

Template Monster, a provider of a huge collection of site templates, announced on Monday that they are no longer associated with Ultravertex, a provider of images. The company’s decision was based on several factors, including client mishandling on the part of Ultravertex.

Template Monster stated that, “it was informed that Ultravertex.com hasn’t responded to its clients’ complaints. The company’s clients report that they have received allegations that some of the images sold by Ultravertex.com are not owned or licensed by ultravertex.com. Template Monster did its own investigation and found that Ultravertex.com was indeed not responding to many requests, nor would Ultravertex.com respond to Template Monster’s questions as to the exact ownership of its images or its lack of responses to Template Monster’s clients recently.”

David Braun, CEO of Template Monster says, “Unfortunately, we have no other choice but to break off this agreement in order not to mislead up our clients. We are very sorry about the situation but we do promise to provide a similar bonus for all of our clients as soon as possible.”


ResellerClub Extends Domain Promotion

Reseller Club, a provider of reseller hosting solutions, announced that they have extended their popular $1.49 domain name promotion. This low price will continue for all .info and .org domain name extension purchases through the 31st of December, 2006. The promotion had originally been scheduled to end on June 30th, 2006.

“We are offering absolutely rock bottom industry lowest prices for both .info and .org domain names guaranteeing greater profit margins and better revenues for our resellers. This apart, the response to both the promotions has been overwhelming. We look forward to such continued support from our existing as well as new resellers for all promotions and offers that we announce in the future,” said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO, ResellerClub.

“In the past two quarters we have not only increased our domain registrations four-folds but a majority of our resellers have rapidly increased their volumes and purchases with ResellerClub. This apart, we have also recorded a jump in our new reseller sign-ups. With more products being added to our product portfolio, we expect wider interest in ResellerClub’s services in the next quarters. We offer a wide choice, low prices, exciting discounts, promotions and above all, we only sell to resellers thus keeping in mind their larger interests,” added Bhavin.


Homestead Launches SearchLight

Homestead, a provider of various hosting solutions, announced that they are now offering small businesses a way to compete with big players, thanks to their new service called SearchLight. This new service will allow small companies to easily advertise on 20 popular search engines, including Google, Yahoo and MSN.

The service has been made available to all Homestead customers, as well as customers who host their sites with different hosting companies.

“SearchLight solves one of the greatest challenges faced by small businesses online,” says Justin Kitch, Homestead founder and CEO. “SearchLight strives to level the playing field with the larger, national businesses that are reaping most of the benefits from Internet advertising and eroding the prospects of small, local businesses that make our communities unique.”
