Genesis is hosting its own Black Night web hosting service and is seeking funding to build out its own network of hosting companies.
The company, based in South Australia, said it would open up its Black Night hosting to other companies, including one that is offering a service for hosting businesses and consumers alike.
It will be hosting its services on Hyperstreet, a popular domain registrar.
In a video on the company’s website, CEO Alex Wylie said the new Black Night service was based on a strategy pioneered by the web pioneer Blackrock.
It allowed people to get into hosting and help other people get into it.
The move was sparked by a number of challenges faced by Blackrock, the Australian company that has a dominant presence in the hosting market.
It had to move the entire hosting infrastructure of its site from Australia to a server in the US and then back again to make sure it could handle the high demand.
“We needed to move our whole infrastructure to the US, because that’s where we have the most traffic and our hosting is the most profitable,” Mr Wylies said.
The Black Night platform is meant to be the “premium” of the new platform and can be used for hosting companies of all sizes.
Mr Wyly said Genesis would be able to host up to 1,000 companies a month.
Genesis is hoping to open up the Black Night to companies, like hotels and companies with more than 500 employees.
Geneses own site has also attracted attention as a potential site for a new film company.
The platform is open to anyone interested in hosting, and offers a wide range of options.
“It’s like any other platform, you can pick one and you can do anything,” Mr Huggins said.
“You can do a hosting, you could host a company or you could just use the hosting for other people.”
Genesis has been operating its own hosting services for a few years.
The firm said it had been building its own infrastructure since its inception.
“It’s an incredibly powerful platform and we can do all of this work without the infrastructure that most other companies have,” Mr Ritchie said.
He said the company would be looking to partner with a number in the community and open up to other services.
The launch of Genesis Black Night has raised $1.1 million in the last month, including $400,000 from the Australian Government.
The venture is funded by a group of investors including investors in the internet space.
“I think it’s a great opportunity to get a little bit more exposure for this platform,” Mr Jansen said.
Genres is also seeking funding from its existing investors.
“There’s a lot of investment out there and we’re going to need to do a bit of work to get in the right place to get it funded, but we think we have a really good opportunity to do that,” Mr Stott said.
