REPEAT/EARTHLINK CUTS UNIQUE DOMAIN WEB SITE HOSTING SET UP FEE BY MORE THAN $800; Increases megabytes available for unique domain Web sites.

PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 27, 1996--National Internet access provider EarthLink Network, Inc. has cut its Web site hosting fees for businesses by 75 percent. Effective immediately, set up fees will decrease from $1,121 to $279. In addition, space available for unique domain Web sites will increase from 25MB to 30MB.

"As more and more companies get on the Internet, it's becoming essential to have a Web site for your business if you want to stay competitive," said Sky Dayton, chairman and founder of EarthLink. "EarthLink's new pricing makes it extremely affordable for businesses to have a real presence on the Internet."

EarthLink also announced a new monthly fee of $159, which still includes domain registration, 1.5GB of traffic (data transferred from the Web site), T3 lines, a fiber optic backbone and unlimited customer support. It would take more than 83,333 hits per month on a Web page to exceed the 1.5GB of monthly allowance.
