Hiway Technologies, LinkExchange Sign Domain Registration Pact

Hiway Technologies Inc. signed an agreement with LinkExchange Inc. to be the exclusive provider of domain registration services for the Web ad network.

LinkExchange said it services more than one million registered users of its services, "making it the Web's largest active community of independent site owners and Web entrepreneurs." The company recently expanded its services beyond simple ad exchanges. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

LinkExchange offers members banner advertising exchange and promotion, search engine registration and monitoring, electronic commerce solutions, site visitor analysis, and other tools. The new domain registration channel will be administered and managed by Hiway Technologies.

"LinkExchange has built an enormous network of Internet-based business owners who rely on its tools and services to compete online," said Steve Umberger, chief marketing officer of Hiway Technologies. "By teaming with LinkExchange, we gain immediate access to one million-plus members of our target audience while rounding out the site's extensive service offerings."

Hiway Technologies' domain registration service, called SiteSaver, is a complete domain registration and parking service. For a one-time fee of $40, SiteSaver is made to allow customers to perform online domain name searches, register a domain with InterNIC, and, if needed, park the domain for up to two years. InterNIC fees are not included.
