TARZANA, Calif. (February 27, 2007) – InfoStreet Inc., creator of the on-demand IT software suite, StreetSmart, today launched its independent service InstantName.com (www.instantname.com) – a one-stop domain registration service with registration services being offered through InfoStreet’s partnership with Register.com. Powered by InfoStreet’s advanced on-demand StreetSmart software, InstantName will offer one-stop domain registration, hosting and maintenance for as low as $10 per year – a fourth of the market’s going rate for equivalent full service packages.
“A domain without accompanying services is as good as a license plate without a car. While many places may offer domains inexpensively, the email, hosting and related packages all come at extra costs,” explains Siamak Farah, CEO of InfoStreet. “By bundling StreetSmart’s state-of-the-art and proven on-demand solutions, we ensure clients can put their domain to use immediately”.
Whether users register a new domain, or transfer an existing one to InstantName, they will receive the following Web applications on-demand, all online without the need to download or install any software:
• Email: complete with virus protection, junk mail control, auto responder, message rules and more.
• Web Site Creator: a simple yet powerful tool that allows users to create their Web site without having any technical background.
• Address Book
In lockstep with InfoStreet’s tradition of offering private labeled solutions, InstantName will be offered to InfoStreet’s reseller and VAR channel, where they can offer the above service as their own, yet fully backed by InfoStreet’s and Register.com’s strength. This enables InfoStreet’s channel to add value without the costs of development, implementation or operations.
