HOUSTON, April 2, 2008 — The Planet, the world’s largest privately held dedicated hosting company, today announced the addition of four new customer success videos to its Web site. The videos feature testimonials from the executives of small- and medium-size companies that host their IT infrastructures and businesses with The Planet. In each case, the executives clearly articulate how they use The Planet’s network, data centers and products to grow their businesses.

The company plans additional videos during the course of 2008.

“There’s no one more qualified to talk about The Planet’s products and services than our own customers,” said The Planet’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Management Steve Kahan. “Customers often tell us that they come to The Planet for its world-class data centers and network, and then find additional benefits such as our uptime and customer support. More often than not, they’ve hosted with other providers and are looking for a company with a solid reputation that understands the critical business issues they face. These new videos clearly illustrate why The Planet is the right fit for more than 22,000 businesses around the world.”
