MonkeyByte Development has launched a new service outside the scope of its normal Mac game development. The company has launched a new Web hosting division aimed at small businesses looking to get onto the Web. The company is attempting to make it easy and inexpensive for a small business to offer a full Web presence, including e-commerce. Even better, the company is offering these services on Mac and Mac OS X servers, in addition to Windows NT and Linux machines. According to MonkeyByte Development:
MonkeyByte.com (MBD) unleashes new Internet services ranging from simple Domain Hosting to complex B-B Intranet and eCommerce solutions. All at amazing cost savings for small businesses!
"You may have known us for our cutting edge approaches to the Game Industry. Now you need to know us for our innovative approaches at pairing net based technologies and small business," says Yon Hardisty, CEO of MBD, "There is no doubt that technology has begun to level the play field for small business. Technology costs have dropped through the floor and it is time that small and medium sized businesses begin to take up these technologies and really challenging the more established, yet less flexible, large corporations."
