Clear Net has cut the price of its professional Web hosting services by half and more.
From tomorrow, Clear Net's Professional Web Hosting service will command a set-up fee of $50 plus GST, and a monthly charge of $39.95 plus GST. These prices have dropped from $100 for each component of the service.
"The new prices reflect a growing demand for this service, and an increasingly sophisticated use of Internet technology by businesses," says Richard Hardy, Clear Net's senior marketing manager
Hardy says the reduced rates will put Web hosting within easier reach of large and small businesses, as well as making it an attractive option for domestic users.
Clear Net's professional Web hosting service offers Microsoft Front Page server extensions support and extensive online usage reporting. A browser-based Web site creation tool called WebPublisher, which offers an easy way to get businesses on-line, is available as an option.
Hardy says that "while price is a factor in many decisions" on business Internet plans, "quality is also important because the Internet is increasingly taking on more strategic importance for many businesses," he says.
"We provide high quality service security, and reporting. People want to be assured that their Internet sites are always available and they also need to know who has been using them, and when. A company's web site is its store front for the next millennium."
