WEB CROSSING, INC. INTRODUCES SITE CROSSING FOR FAST, EASY ONLINE
— Only Fully Integrated Web/ftp/email with Message Board and Full Complement
of Collaboration Tools; Quickly Build Core Site or Bolt Onto Existing Site —
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., February 28, 2005 — Web Crossing, Inc. today announced
its new Site Crossing service, for the first time offering enterprise-class Web
Crossing power in a consumer- or workgroup-sized package. Available
Site Crossing offers Web Crossing-based Internet message boards and other
collaboration tools in two new ways: as a service bolted onto an already
existing Web site, or as an entire core Web site.
Site Crossing is the only hosted service that provides a fully integrated
complement of choices for interactive tools, such as discussions, mailing
blogs, chat, calendars, podcasting, polls, etc. in a hosted, easy to manage
service, with core capabilities for building an entire site, including full
Web/FTP/email capabilities. Organizations with existing Web sites can
add award-winning Web Crossing-based message boards and other interactive
capabilities to their site. Site Crossing hosted solutions are available
starting at an affordable $7.95/month from (http://www.sitecrossing.com/).
“We’ve made Site Crossing fast to set up and easy to manage,” said Tim Lundeen,
president and CEO of Web Crossing, Inc. “Whether you’re hanging your small
business shingle, building a clubhouse for friends and family, or adding
discussions to a site you’ve already built, Site Crossing is server hosted for
the maximum uptime. Site Crossing provides smaller customers with tried and
reliability, leveraging our years of experience with serving extremely large,
mission critical Web Crossing installations.”
Instant and Easy for Building or Bolting
Site Crossing server set-up is instant. A Wizard makes configuration a
minutes and online administration is just as easy. Existing sites bolting on
Site Crossing can add interactive elements — such as a forum, mailing lists,
blog or poll — one at a time or by the dozen. A special, minimal “EZ theme”
takes the HTML code used by a site and extends it to the Site Crossing section
for a consistent look and feel. Site Crossing’s single integrated user database
ensures that your users only have to log in once to use all the interactive
tools. For bolted solutions, set-up is fast with no need for scripts.
For core sites built entirely in Site Crossing, an included HTML formatting bar
helps create simple HTML pages without prior knowledge of HTML. Web pages, full
FTP capabilities plus an unlimited number of accounts for WebMail/POP3/SMTP
email provide the basic functionality to which discussions, mailing lists,
blogs, polls, chat and more can be added. Additional interactive tools can be
added at any time with a simple point-and-click.
All Site Crossing sites come with fully indexed fast Search capabilities.
control ensures privacy for designated areas. Site Crossing always
servers and software, requiring no need to keep up with upgrades.
Pricing and Availability
Site Crossing is compatible with any modern or current standards-based browser.
Site Crossing is available immediately starting at $7.95/month directly from
