Sitelutions is operated by InfoRelay Online Systems, an Englishtown, N.J. hosting company, which Tew has praised for its performance. “They have given me an unbelievable level of support and ensured that the site has stayed online despite the millions of visitors,” Tew wrote in his weblog. Sitelutions offers a 99.999% network uptime guarantee, and says it donates 10 percent of its profits to charities chosen by its users.
Milliondollarhomepage.com has been a boost to other web hosting companies as well. Globat bought 5,100 pixels, linking them to a special promotion that the company said has been a big success. “We gained tremendous exposure and also sent a message to young entrepreneurs worldwide that creativity and ingenuity will always capture the interest of progressive companies such as Globat,” said Ben Neumann, president and CEO of Globat. ” In Alex I saw the purest form of entrepreneurship. He set a high goal and succeeded.”
Tew’s success has sparked the launch of dozens of copycat “pixel advertising” sites, including several that bought advertising on milliondollarhomepage.com.
