“We are honored and excited to be serving these customers for their web hosting needs.

WEBXESS ENGAGES IN CHANGE FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE – WEBII ADOPTED AS NEW COMPANY NAME
-Austin, TX. February, 2001. WebXess, Inc., an Austin-based Web Hosting Provider, recently underwent an identity change that may aid in the company’s rapid emergence in the coming year.
The 5-year established company has chosen the name “Webii” (pronounced Web-i-i) to replace their former name for purposes of clearer communication and as a renewed outlook on the future of the hosting industry. “We see the name as an illusion for Web2, suggesting that we plan to work beyond any previous conceptions of the Internet,” says Jacqueline Sinex, Operations Coordinator for WebXess, Inc. But perhaps more importantly, customers will no longer experience the frequent misspellings and crossings with other similarly named Web hosting companies.
The new name will be reflected along with a new logo, and will act as a DBA under the corporation of WebXess, Inc. While customers will still be able to access the company web site via www.webii.net , support and sales emails will be redirected to addresses ending in webii.net.
Lui Chan, President of WebXess, Inc. feels that the new name reflects a “refreshing identity with unlimited possibilities, however backed by years of experience and great customer care.”
“It is in response to a new millinneum with obvious new media environments that we decided to make this switch.”
WebXess was founded in 1996, with a target market of individuals and small to medium-sized businesses. The company offers Web hosting and E-commerce hosting plans, as well as Domain Registration services under its registration division, SiteReserve.com.
WEBXESS, INC. LAUNCHES AFFORDABLE REGISTRATION SERVICE
-Austin, TX. April 13th, 2000. WebXess, Inc. recently launched SiteReserve.com, a domain name registration service that allows consumers to acquire a domain name for $35. The $35 fee covers the two-year ownership of a domain name and the option to reserve the name on WebXess nameservers. As an incentive, WebXess offers to apply the $35 fee as a credit toward a hosting package setup.
SiteReserve.com’s new rate is comparably lower than that of many other agencies, which charge $70 to register a domain name for two years. Internet executives expect that the lower price will increase the rate of registering parties.
“I believe the low cost is a great benefit to Internet consumers, as well as the registering parties. Consumers might now be able to remember the name of their favorite site, which before had a very long set of characters. The site owners who hesitated at the thought of a $70 fee, now have an opportunity to become more visible for less cost,” says Jacqueline Sinex, Project Coordinator for WebXess, Inc.
“As the quantity of personal web sites and online businesses increases, it becomes more important to spot a [domain] name that people will remember,” adds Lui Chan, President of WebXess, Inc. “SiteReserve allows more of those sites to compete by offering a service that anyone can afford.”
WebXess, Inc. states that SiteReserve was also created in an effort to provide an easy and straightforward registration process. A customer visiting SiteReserve.com can check a domain name’s availability as well as register and reserve it in one short process. The customer also has the option of ordering multiple domain names in one transaction. “Each step is in plain English,” says Sinex.

WEBXESS ANNOUNCES NEW TURN-KEY E-COMMERCE SOLUTIONS
Leading Hosting Company Partners with Mercantec to Provide Easy Route to Online Sales
Austin, TX, March 7, 1999 – WebXess, Inc. recently formed a contract with Mercantec, Inc. in an effort to create an easy and affordable way for businesses to join the online market. WebXess will utilize Mercantec’s SoftCart Web store software as part of its new E-commerce solutions, which will offer individuals the opportunity to sell products or services on the Internet.
SoftCart allows a merchant to create a new money-generating site from scratch or to adapt an existing site to perform transactions. The software also calculates sales tax and shipping charges for the merchant’s customers, and select plans allow the merchant to create categories and attributes for each product.
Jacqueline Sinex, Operations Coordinator for WebXess, says she believes many individuals avoid creating an online store because they assume it is over their budget and requires skilled programmers. “On the contrary, our E-commerce packages are formatted to be easy for even the least experienced individuals, and the prices are beyond affordable.”
WebXess hopes that the ease of Mercantec’s step-by-step store building wizard combined with the reliability of their Web hosting will draw more entrepreneurs to the Web. Mercantec’s Director of Marketing Mary Beth Pandolfo states that, “WebXess offers retailers the high performance Internet services and broad technical support they need in order to implement electronic commerce on their Web sites.”
