Hostway Donates Its Web Hosting Service

Donates The Service To Support Northwestern University's Dance Marathon Website

Hostway Corporation, a provider of web hosting and managed services, yesterday announced that it has donated web hosting to support Northwestern University's Dance Marathon web site and expand their online capabilities.

Dance Marathon, currently in its 32nd year at Northwestern University, is one of the world's largest student-run philanthropies. To reach their 2006 goal of exceeding their previous year's fund raising total of $625,000, they wanted to expand their online capabilities. Hostway helped this Chicago-based university in their philanthropic fund raising efforts by providing them free web hosting to support the official Dance Marathon website.

Hostway was referred to the Dance Marathon Executive Board as a reliable hosting provider by a web site developer that offered to create their site. Hostway currently hosts the web developer's company site and looking at Hostway's past dedication of providing free web hosting to organizations such as Recruiters for Katrina and Baylie for Brains, the company saw Hostway as a perfect fit to support this philanthropic organization.

"Hostway is always eager to find opportunities to give back to the community and Dance Marathon's success and commitment to its beneficiaries is extremely impressive to us," said John Lee, VP of global marketing and GM for Hostway. "We feel like the lucky ones being asked to be involved with this event."

"We solicited Hostway's services because they were a local company proven for reliability," said David Kim, Dance Marathon Executive Board member. "Our old server would crash and Dance Marathon would lose money because people could not donate online. We're incredibly happy with the service we've received this year."
