GLOBIX UK SUPERPOP SIGNS CONTRACTS FOR OVER $1 MILLION IN FIRST 3 MONTHS
Leading UK Sites ebookers.com and Interactive Investor
International Now Hosting With Globix
NEW YORK – October 19, 1999 – Globix Corporation (NASDAQ: GBIX),
today announced that its London SuperPOP has signed new contracts with
total value in excess of $1 million, since opening on July 15, 1999.
Among the new clients hosting in the Globix London Internet
Data Center are ebookers.com plc [www.ebookers.com], a leading
UK travel portal specializing in discounted travel, and Interactive
Investor International (“iii”), [www.iii.co.uk], a leading UK-based
Internet Financial Portal.
ebookers.com, the online extension of Flightbookers, the most
prominent retail brand in UK travel, operates a 24 hour online travel store to
help travelers with destinations and discounted offers.
iii is a comprehensive personal finance portal which provides individuals with
the power to identify, compare, monitor and, where appropriate, buy and sell
online, a wide variety of financial products and services at every stage of
their financial lives. By giving investors greater control of their financial
affairs, iii generated over 10 million page impressions in September 1999.
“The availability of our Web site to the individuals who rely on our services
is of paramount importance to us,” said Tomás Carruthers, CEO of Interactive
Investor International. “The hosting and connectivity provided by Globix will
allow us to deliver the best possible service to our clients, 24 hours a day.”
Marc H. Bell, Chairman and CEO of Globix Corporation said, “As companies
face the decision of whether or not to outsource their Web presence, Globix can
provide companies with an economical and secure alternative to managing in-house.
By utilizing the state-of-the-art London SuperPOP, customers can rest easy knowing
that their Web servers are in the best environment and have the necessary bandwidth
to meet the fast growing demand of this exciting industry. Companies like ebookers.com
and iii can now focus on running their e-business, without having to worry about the
complex technical aspects associated with it.”
