June 27, 2007 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web server and website monitoring service provider WebSitePulse has opened locations in China, it was announced yesterday. The company, which provides "independent and remote monitoring of web-based and email systems, web applications and ebusiness transactions," now has monitoring facilities in Beijing and Shanghai.
With 137 million Internet users at the end of 2006 (China Internet Network Information Centre), China has the second largest number of people using the Internet, behind the US with the largest. Around 30 percent of the country's total Internet users are in Beijing.
"WebSitePulse perceives the phenomenal growth potential of China as an opportunity to serve more customers with ebusiness operations targeting the Chinese market, as well as China-based ebusinesses communicating with the rest of the world," explained Iavor Marinoff, CEO of WebSitePulse. "So far, we have been offering web monitoring services from our Singapore and Hong Kong locations, but now, performance data generated by our system in Beijing and Shanghai will be much more precise, reliable, and useful to our customers depending on web-based business opportunities, transactions, and communications with China."
The WebSitePulse website quotes Zona Research as suggesting slow websites cost the Internet industry $25 billion in lost sales including "more than $21 billion per year lost when users abandon a website because of excessive delays in web page downloads." The company provides information about websites, web systems, and web applications performance "measured from the specific geographic locations where the end users are". This information provides ebusiness owners and operators with critical operational insights establishing areas that need improvement.
