MALAYSIAN web- and cloud-hosting provider Exabytes Network Sdn Bhd has launched an ‘all-in-one’ mobility-enhanced webhosting plan, EBiz Power Hosting, for small and medium businesses across the Asean region.
The launch is in line with company’s effort to touch 70,000 customers and hit group revenues of RM20 million (US$6.1 million) by 2014, the company said in a statement. Exabytes was established in 2004.
“Web-hosting is [our] core business, contributing up to 90% of our revenue, with the remaining income coming from the e-commerce business division,” said CEO and founder Chan Kee Siak (pic).
He said that 75% of Exabytes’ revenue comes from the Malaysian market, and 25% from overseas, and hopes that the EBiz Power Hosting offering will bring in more new customers.
“Our customer base has consistently grown over 10% on a year-on-year basis for the past three years. To date, we have over 65,000 customers across 121 countries worldwide,” said Chan.
Since establishment in 2004, Exabytes has grown and became today’s leading Web hosting provider with the largest market share at 26 percent in Malaysia.
The newly launched EBiz Power Hosting plan allows companies to set up their own business domain, immediately run e-commerce activities, and address all their IT security concerns in a single sign-up, Exabytes claimed.
“Capitalising on the growing mobility trend, Exabytes’ EBiz Power Hosting offering has incorporated an intuitive mobile website builder function called the GoMobi which allows SMBs business or entrepreneurs to reach out to the growing smartphone consumer market in Malaysia,” said Chan.
This new special function allows Exabytes customers to set up a mobile version of their main website, which is compatible with various mobile operating systems such as iOS, BlackBerry, Android and Windows.
EBiz Power Hosting also includes the German-based enterprise class email and communication tool Open-Exchange OX App Suite, which integrates email, documents, office productivity, scheduling and social media applications.
