Hostway Partners with WSI to Offer Web Hosting and Online Services to SMBs Globally
Cobranded partnership lets more than 1,500 WSI consultants resell Hostway's products and services to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
CHICAGO, Illinois, August 14, 2006—Hostway has partnered with We Simplify the Internet (WSI) to add Hostway's Web hosting and online services to WSI consultants' product line. This cobranded venture empowers small- to medium-sized business owners with the ability to easily create and manage a successful online presence.
“Hostway is thrilled to join the ‘global e-marketplace' of WSI vendors,” said John Lee, vice president of global marketing for Hostway. “We see this as an ideal partnership in which everyone benefits—WSI consultants, Hostway and business owners. It helps entrepreneurs take their businesses to the next level by getting Hostway's products and services at a discounted rate through their WSI consultant.”
Hostway offers WSI customers a select group of plans and features in addition to access to three of Hostway's global data center locations in London, United Kingdom; Hannover, Germany and Chicago, Illinois. Using these locations, WSI consultants can sell Hostway's services globally and efficiently serve WSI customers.
“As the SMB market gets more informed about the potential of the Internet, there is an increasing demand for advanced hosting solutions. WSI consultants help satisfy customers' demand and maximize their business profitability on the Web,” said Ron McArthur, president of WSI Internet consulting and education.
He continues, “Small- to medium-sized businesses are taking on bigger players and exploring business opportunities beyond national boundaries. In WSI's partnership with Hostway, the SMB market now has the combined force of two world-leading solution providers to power their online presence. We are delighted to welcome Hostway into the e-marketplace, as our worldwide consultants are now better equipped to meet and exceed customer expectations.”
