THE WORLD’S MOST AFFORDABLE MAC WITH THE WORLD’S EASIEST APACHE & Tenon team up to offer iTools on the Mac mini

Austin & Santa Barbara, CA, February 1,
2005. Tenon, the developer of
iTools, a popular web server configuration and management tool, and, a high-speed Mac mini collocation service, announce a
partnership to offer the easiest and least expensive Apache web services
on the planet.

Combining Apple’s new Mac mini (“the most affordable Mac ever”) with
Tenon’s Apache toolsuite (known for its simplicity and power) provides
an inexpensive way to host Apache web services, domain name service
(DNS), file transfer (FTP), and WebDAV (for collaborative content
creation). iTools includes a full complement of open source packages:
PHP (for scripting), MySQL (database), Tomcat (Java), Gallery (for
displaying photos), phpBB2 (for bulletin boards), b2++ (for blogging),
PHP-Nuke (creating web portals for community sharing), as well as
built-in web logging and searching.

“The Mac mini’s processing power is more than enough for 80% of the web
sites on the market and Tenon’s anywhere, anytime iTools Apache
management lets webmasters manage multiple virtual hosts using a
browser-based GUI,” said Jay Menna, President of

“iTools saves webmaster time and money, says Tenon’s President, Anita
Holmgren. iTools is a 5th generation set of tools that provides secure,
domain-specific remote Apache administration. Teaming up with
Macminicolo gives ISPs new low-cost, powerful alternatives for
Apache-based web hosting.”

The Macminicolo starts at $29.99 a month. A powerful and full-featured
mail server and list server, Post.Office
(, is free to those who sign
up before March 15th, 2005. The Post.Office package supports 10
mailboxes and 2 lists and can be used to support web applications with
form-based email. Additional mailboxes and lists can be purchased
