Dotster Helps m2go Take Flight

October 1, 2009 by · Comments Off on Dotster Helps m2go Take Flight 

Web Hosting Services VANCOUVER, Wash. – Dotster, Inc., a leading provider of Internet business services, today announced that FreeFi Networks utilized Dotster’s web application development services to create m2go, an on-demand download service for airline travelers. FreeFi had an idea to further monetize its free, ad-supported Wi-Fi service by making movies and games available on-demand to travelers waiting to board airplanes. Rather than develop the application internally, FreeFi opted to work with Dotster, a trusted business partner, to leverage its resources and expertise in web development.

“We already have several airports using our free Wi-Fi service and sharing in advertising revenues; m2go was formed on a great, but simple idea to take advantage of that captive audience,” said Larry Laffer, executive director, FreeFi. “The execution of this idea was more challenging as travelers only have a limited amount of time during a layover or prior to boarding, and other online download services can take hours to download movie-length files or rely on continuous streaming that in-flight bandwidth can’t support. We needed expertise to quickly put our idea into action, and that’s when we turned to Dotster for web application development help.”

Dotster Helps Secure the Web for Online Small Businesses

May 13, 2009 by · Comments Off on Dotster Helps Secure the Web for Online Small Businesses 

Web Hosting ToolsVANCOUVER, Wash. – Dotster Inc., a leading provider of Internet business services, is expanding its security solutions to give small businesses more tools to protect their most valuable asset, their customers. In a survey commissioned by VeriSign and conducted by Synovate, 50 percent of Internet users avoid buying online because they are afraid their financial information might be stolen, and for those who are purchasing, 65 percent have abandoned a shopping cart or failed to complete an online purchase due to security concerns. By adding products from trusted online security brands such as GeoTrust and VeriSign, Dotster is giving small businesses the ability to turn these reluctant buyers into profitable customers.

“Companies that want to collect information online or conduct ecommerce but have yet to implement SSL are going to lose business,” says Michael Lin, vice president and general manager of SSL at VeriSign. “The modern consumer knows better, and without seeing VeriSign’s Secure Seal or the green browser on sites using EV SSL, they will not engage personally or financially with that site.” Read more
