(WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) — Web hosting and content delivery network provider Voxel Dot Net (www.voxel.net) announced on Wednesday it saw a 72 percent increase in net income and a 63 percent increase in total revenue in 2008.
Founded in 1999, Voxel says it is the “only service provider to offer both hosting bandwidth and CDN service over its own backbone.” The company provides a range of services, including international CDN, data storage, IP circuits, managed hosting and infrastructure services.
The company had several customer wins in 2008, growing its customer base by 32 percent. Voxel expanded business with Perez Hilton and DailyKos, as well as signed new deals with New York Observer, Politicker.com, CBS’s “Rachel Ray Show”, Mochila, SourceForge.net, AmieStreet.com and AccuRadio.com.
“Our clients are demanding greater scalability, while needing to balance growth with staying competitive amid tougher times,” says Raj Dutt, Voxel’s founder and CEO. “Our transparent ‘pay per use’ pricing combined with service and support that encompasses the entire Internet infrastructure stack is really resonating well with the market and paying off. Going forward into 2009, we are going to build upon that stack, layering on seamless options in both Amsterdam and Singapore. We plan to leverage our international network to bring the Voxel experience to new markets.”
By the end of 2008, Voxel expanded its private international IP backbone to include 15 points-of-presence, connecting major Internet hubs across the globe.
Additionally, the company recently expanded its network and hosting solutions to include the Amsterdam and Singapore markets, marking the company’s first expansion into Asia.
In late 2008 the company launched Universal Transfer, a new pricing model that eliminates the typical premium charged for using a CDN.
The pricing model has resulted in increased business, as Voxel customers can now mix-and-match CDN and hosting bandwidth services, for one price, and automatic cost reductions as usage increases.
In other CDN news, CDNetworks and content protection platform provider Widevine Technologies announced on Monday they have signed a partnership to deliver secure Internet video experiences to global customers.
