For Immediate Release
FIRESITE VIRTUAL DOMAIN MANAGER TO SUPPORT APPLE’S OPEN TRANSPORT 1.3
— Will Simultaneously Operate In Single-IP and Multiple-IP Modes —
Boston, August 4, 1997, Macworld Expo — ClearWay Technologies, Inc. today
announced that their FireSite(TM) Virtual Domain Manager, the most complete
virtual Web site management system for Mac OS, will support tight
integration with Apple Computer’s forthcoming Open Transport 1.3 network
software. Under Open Transport 1.3, which adds multiple-IP-address support
to Mac OS, FireSite Virtual Domain Manager (VDM) will operate
simultaneously in both traditional single-IP and new multiple-IP modes for
all hosted virtual Web sites. ClearWay has extended the introductory price
of US$99.00, and has made free evaluation copies of the most current
version available from their Web site.
“Web hosting is big business these days, and clients demand their own
virtual URLs,” explained Mark Kriegsman, president of ClearWay
Technologies. “FireSite VDM has always delivered a complete,
professional-quality Web hosting system using only a single IP address.
Under Open Transport 1.3, which will support multiple IP addresses,
Webmasters will be able to use FireSite VDM simultaneously in single- and
multiple- IP modes for all their Web sites.” FireSite VDM provides a
complete suite of virtual Web site management features, including
resettable traffic statistics that can be used for customer billing,
per-site Error pages, and more.
FireSite VDM is available as a stand-alone product, and as an integrated
component of the FireSite Web Site Accelerator. Webmasters have praised
the FireSite hosting system. Tim Taplin of Colorado Business Systems said,
“Now that we have seen FireSite in action, we are aggressively pursuing web
design and hosting clients.” Gabriel Shirley of Quantum Efficiency
Consulting in Nashville, TN, said simply, “The multihoming feature is the
best I’ve used.”
The introductory price of US$99.00 for FireSite Virtual Domain Manager has
been extended until Apple releases Open Transport 1.3 and includes “up and
running” technical support and free same-product upgrades for one year.
All existing FireSite VDM customers will receive the OT 1.3-savvy version
as a free upgrade.
