iWeb marks its 15th anniversary with a new website

Published on November 23, 2011 at 1:22 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Press Releases

Montreal (Quebec), November 23, 2011 — iWeb, a global provider of Internet hosting services and IT infrastructure, is proud to present its new website. The opportunity was ideal because iWeb has just celebrated 15 years of business on the web.

Several changes were made to iWeb.com to improve our visitor’s user experience and to better showcase our products and services.

“The customer experience is central to our business values. We wanted to offer the same visual quality and ergonomics on our site that we implement in our products, like the Smart Server’s Control Center”, said Martin Leclair, President, Products and Technology at iWeb. “Hundreds of hours of design, content writing, programming and integration were put in to achieve this and we hope our visitors will enjoy”, he added.

Meticulously crafted, fast and easy to navigate, the new site showcases iWeb’s products and services at a glance. A new menu on one side of the home page, puts forward unmanaged, dedicated servers that can be ordered and activated directly from the site. On the other side, one can find a description of our infrastructure design services and advanced solutions and speak with a specialist for more information. The site also features iWeb’s new server management and monitoring packages.

“This new website is another step in the evolution of the company, which began in June with its privatization and merger with the investment fund Novacap” mentions Eric Chouinard, iWeb’s Co-founder and CEO. “The last 15 years went by very quickly. The dreams of a few entrepreneurs have been realized with the help of an ever-expanding team”, adding, “What is most exciting, after all these years, is that the best is yet to come.”

The website will continue to evolve as iWeb introduces new features and products throughout 2012.

iWeb’s official statement about Citizen Lab’s report

Published on November 17, 2011 at 4:39 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Press Releases

Several media outlets have recently published articles based on a report from the Citizen Lab organization, which can be found here: http://citizenlab.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/canadian_connection.pdf

The report, entitled “The Canadian Connection: An investigation of Syrian government and Hezbullah web hosting in Canada” highlights a very important issue, providing a summary of what has become a complex problem for the web hosting industry.

The Canadian government has enacted regulations that restrict Canadian firms such as iWeb from doing business with certain foreign individuals and entities. iWeb is committed to strict compliance with these laws and continues to monitor its compliance.

In 2008, iWeb inadvertently hosted two websites affiliated with Hezbollah. When iWeb learned of the websites’ affiliation, it cancelled its web hosting services.

Canada has enacted targeted sanctions against certain Syrian government entities and individuals. Canada has not enacted a broad embargo against doing business with Syria.

The Citizen lab report identified a number of Syrian government entities for which the internet address resolves directly or indirectly to iWeb. With one exception, none of the listed entities are subject to Canadian sanctions. The exception is Addunia T.V. which was listed as a sanctioned entity on October 3, 2011. iWeb has not provided any services directly to Addunia T.V. and is investigating whether its facilities have been used by one of its customers for the benefit of Addunia T.V. without its knowledge. iWeb will be taking all appropriate steps in light of its findings.
