Tucows Partners with Web.com to Offer Personalized Email and Website Services for Small and Medium-sized Businesses

    TORONTO, Oct. 3 /CNW/ - Tucows Inc., (AMEX:  TCX, TSX:TC) a leading
provider of Internet services to web hosting companies and ISPs worldwide,
today announced that it has partnered with Web.com, a leading provider of
online marketing services for small business, to offer Tucows's OpenSRS
Personal Names Service. Through Personal Names, Web.com will offer
personalized email and web addresses for people looking to showcase their name
brand for their business.
    "As a market leader in providing online services to small and
medium-sized businesses, Web.com's selection of our Personal Names Service
underscores the importance of email to customer retention for service
providers," says Elliot Noss, President and CEO of Tucows. "Too many service
providers are content to let their users get email from Google, Yahoo or
Microsoft without realizing the cost to their business. Web.com recognizes
that a quality email experience with a great, personalized email address is
appealing and important to keep customers happy, retention high and
word-of-mouth growing."
    OpenSRS Personal Names is ideal for small business owners, sole
proprietors or SOHOs looking to showcase and associate their name brand with
their company within their email or web address, such as amy@smith.net for
their email address and amy.smith.net for their web address.
    "We are always looking to make the services we offer to small and
medium-sized businesses (SMB) more effective," says Jeff Stibel, President of
Web.com. "This partnership with Tucows enables us to provide SMBs with a
customized email address directly related to their own name."
    The majority of Americans will now find their own name waiting for them
at Web.com.
