MyComputer.com Expands its Subscription Based Business Model; All Free, Advertising-Supported, Services Have Been Phased Out

Apr 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from MyComputer.com

    OREM, Utah, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- MyComputer.com, the leading
 application service provider of Web analytics and Web site management tools,
 today announced it has shifted to a subscription-only based business model and
 has phased out its advertising-supported free services.
     MyComputer.com launched its professional product subscriptions 17 months
 ago and has earned a loyal subscriber base of more than 14,000 paying
 subscribers in that time frame.  Since then, it has aggressively focused its
 efforts on serving the online goals of enterprise companies with Web sites
 generating millions of page views per month.
     "Since launching our subscription-based services in late 1999, we have
 built up a solid base of corporate customers, including such companies as
 AT&T, CNET, Novell and eBay (among others)," said Josh James, chief executive
 officer of MyComputer.com.  "These companies, along with many others, have
 helped to establish MyComputer.com as the leading provider of real-time,
 enterprise level Web analytics."
     While converting advertising-supported users to paying subscribers in
 March 2001 alone, MyComputer.com increased sales by 475 percent and more than
 tripled the number of new yearlong subscriptions.  "In April 2001, we believe
 the company is again poised to convert thousands of formerly free subscribers
 to its professional Web analytics and Web site management products," James
 said.
     "Outsourcing tasks such as Web traffic analysis to an ASP like
 MyComputer.com gives Novell the Web site metrics we need without tapping, or
 otherwise distracting from, our own production and development resources,"
 said Kevin Millecam, web information architect at Novell.  "The emphasis on
 professional focus, in addition to the fact that Web sites run by companies
 like Novell have become very complex, makes the turnkey services offered by
 MyComputer.com very attractive to webmasters responsible for enterprise-level
 Web sites."
     MyComputer.com's flagship Web analytics service, SuperStats, is being sold
 by an Enterprise sales team, as well as online.  Enterprise services start as
 low as $2,500 per year and can run up to $300,000 per year, depending on the
 amount of traffic (or visitors) a site generates.  SuperStats services are
 designed to monitor and analyze Web site traffic, increase understanding of
 crucial Web business metrics, and improve a company's return from their online
 investment.
 
     About MyComputer.com
     Founded in 1996, privately held MyComputer.com is the leading application
 service provider of Web analytics and Web site management tools.
 MyComputer.com's eight tools provide users with key site traffic monitoring
 and analysis as well as the necessary resources to enhance the interactivity
 and marketing appeal of their sites.  The company's flagship product,
 SuperStats, is the preferred real-time Web analytics service for enterprise
 sites and Internet industry leaders.  With headquarters in Orem, Utah,
 MyComputer.com attracts more than 100 paying subscribers each day and has
 reached more than a billion Web viewers through its extensive network of
 member and partner sites.  Strategic partners include VeriSign (Nasdaq:   VRSN),
