Web Hosting Talk Forum


(Warsaw, 25 May 2017) Jaaz Portal Ltd has joined the Web Hosting Talk Forum, an informal organisation of web hosting providers and individual users from all over the world. The company looks forward to a fruitful cooperation and expansion of their partners’ network.

The company is currently working on an integrated, out-of-the-box solution that will enable Data Centres to reach a market of mass consumers, an innovation that has so far been reserved for the big players.

Jaaz Portal Ltd hopes to establish itself as a strong player in the web hosting community. The company has the ambition of creating an industry standard with its flagship product, Jaaz Portal.

“We welcome other members of the community and we hope that some of them will join us in our struggle to create a consortium that will be closely involved in the development of Jaaz Portal.” - said company director, Artur Radosz. “We want to involve the small and medium players that, so far, are not spending on R&D. Together we can counter the strong competition from the Internet Giants”.

To date, investing in R&D has been the domain of the big players on the web hosting market. The newly established Jaaz Alliance wants to change this by mobilising the smaller players that make up the majority of the market but are not currently focused on creating their own products.

“We are here to change the rules of the game. We want all these little companies to come under our umbrella and, together with us, create a new industry standard, with the profits going to all the individual users of the Internet” - added company secretary, Marcin Gregorczyk.

Jaaz Portal Limited is a UK-based company with an R&D center located in Poland. Through this, it can provide excellent quality IT services at a minimal cost.

Since March 2017, it has focused on the development of the company’s flagship product Jaaz Portal - an ultimate, out-of-the-box web hosting service for average and unskilled users of social networks and bloggers.

Our Mission


Jaaz Portal is a highly integrated corporation-class service dedicated to anyone who wishes to have a global presence in the Internet. It is an integrated portal and a web-hosting solution for individual, community and business needs. Unlike other solutions, it will also be licensed as open source to third parties, primarily web-hosting companies.

We aim to provide an easy-to-deploy and manage solution to expand our users’ markets to a new level. Through our product, we will allow them to reach unparalleled numbers of new customers, which will forever change the way they conduct their business operations.

Moreover, we will also be operating an end-user solution, CelloHost.com, and we will create a non-profit association of companies and organizations, Jaaz Alliance, for both established and prospective users. This association will be further marketing our product and will support its development.

In the next four years, the web-hosting market will grow by a staggering 26 000 000 new websites. To meet the objectives of our Business Plan, we need to capture just 0.01% of this growth.

For the development period of our services and first years of the operation, we need a total investment of £250 000. We shall bring a net profit, after deducting taxes, in the level of £2 000 000 within half a decade.

This investment will be spent on office and server maintenance, salaries for the four people currently on our team and the marketing of the project. The team will grow each year, to reach three Java Developers and Web Designer and Support Officer.

Jaaz was formed in 1998 in Warszawa, Poland, as a partnership between Marcin Gregorczyk and Sebastian Walos, and has since provided IT consulting, along with web development and hosting services, for a variety of SMEs. In 2017, the company opened their UK branch, working exclusively on the Jaaz Portal.

Jaaz Portal Limited is a UK-based company with an R&D centre located in Poland. Through this, it can provide excellent quality IT services at a minimal cost.



Jaaz Portal - Introduction


There are now more than three billion Internet users, and many, if not most, will, at some stage, want to have their own website to showcase themselves, their community or commercial venture. However, to this day, the traditional web hosting vendors are not ready to offer them a comprehensive solution, and this is something we want to change with our Jaaz Portal product.

It is no secret that web-hosting companies do not invest in R&D. They are happy with the existing customer base that often control a whole IT department and just need some server space. The situation is, however, different if it comes to unskilled individuals that do not have the ability or knowledge to create and run their own websites.

For that reason, we at Jaaz are working to meet the requirements of both traditional web-hosting vendors and consumers, to offer them a comprehensive solution. What we are trying to do is create a complete web-hosting solution designed for individuals, communities and the commercial needs of average and low-skilled users of social networks and bloggers who want to extend their Internet presence by owning professional websites.

This is a solution that, thanks to Java technology, will be able to deploy anywhere, in both existing web-hosting companies and in organizations that did not yet offer web-hosting solutions for their user base.

With the easy-to-use Internet wizard, users will be able to create complete websites that, thanks to our innovative management console, will be easy to set up and maintain. Our intuitive and user-friendly web editor is a powerful tool is able to create even complex websites in a matter of  minutes. Thanks to Bootstrap technology, and without any modifications, they will be later ready for viewing on the consumers’ devices such as mobile phones, tablets or smart TVs.

The whole solution will be packaged in three basic versions: Personal – for individual needs; Community – to support the work of communities and non-governmental organizations, and Commercial – to move your businesses into the Internet.

But this is not end of the Jaaz Revolution. We will also offer a Free Edition of our product that will allow anyone, even your gran, to have their own professional looking websites completely for free.

So, if you run a web-hosting business or just want to run one in the future, you should contact us now to obtain more information on our product and the Jaaz Alliance, a non-profit organization for all those that want use or develop our product that will be also licensed as open source. Join our revolution and contact us now.

Hosting Providers Must Look to R&D


LOS ANGELES — A growing area of research points to the success of companies that have a long-term view, but in the web hosting industry, companies have typically been focused on what kind of products can make them money now, or in the next quarter. That view has come at a cost, as companies outside of the industry have taken aspects of hosting services, built a better product, and raised millions.

In a panel at HostingCon Global on Tuesday morning, Dave Koston, CTO of Help.com pointed to some of the companies that have raised capital on services that hosting providers have been offering for years (think email and communications). But these companies weren’t founded by people in the hosting industry. Take Slack. Or Heroku. Or AppDynamics. SendGrid. Mailchimp. The list goes on and on.

Hosting providers have traditionally spent very little on research and development to create new product lines, instead investing most of their capital in things like hardware, Jordan Jacobs, VP of product at Chicago-based SingleHop said. “It’s hard,” he acknowledged, “and it takes a lot of risk.”

But it’s a risk that is paying off for SingleHop as it invests in acquisitions to gain new capabilities and has just finished off a fourth round of developer hires – and the product hasn’t even launched yet. 

Hosting companies need to start looking down the pipeline at solutions that may not even exist yet; “it’s a transition we forced ourselves to make,” Jacobs said. The company just launched managed AWS services, and is investing in artificial intelligence (AI).

“You don’t have to deliver a crazy, out of the box solution,” Koston said. To make things simpler on yourself, figure out what problems your customers are having and create something to help them solve them.

Having this discussion with customers is something that Jacobs has become very familiar with. He’s talked to 80 different customers to understand their challenges in the process of developing its artificial intelligence solution.

These conversations have been critical at security services provider StackPath, too, according to Nick Nelson, chief strategy officer. He says StackPath CEO Lance Crosby is constantly talking to customers to find out how he can address their challenges, including what can be built onto existing products as well.

Why Jaaz Portal?


Overall, the web hosting market is worth more than $15 billion. Most of the companies operating on it are not Internet Giants like GoDaddy or Hostagartor - who take a combined 15% of it - but rather local small data centres that make a living from renting their hardware to others.

That is why we, at Jaaz, want to focus on this segment of the market in order to find our niche. We want to offer fully featured and complete out-of-the-box solutions for web hosting needs. These will cover every aspect of running the web hosting business, from creating sites, managing them, to the billing process.

We believe that to survive the impact of the Internet Giants, local web hosting providers will need to turn from hardware renting to the mass market. Our product will, beside the standard CMS service, feature news and commenting subsystems, Internet Forums, Online Petitions and Work Group Support, and even complete Internet Shops.

Everyone can run the Jaaz Portal regardless of their hardware configuration. Whether it be a Virtual Private Server or complete Cloud environment, if it is able to run Java technology it will run Jaaz Portal.

However, creating such a system is not a simple thing, which is why we are calling on you to participate in our Jaaz Alliance, a non-profit organisation that will be behind the standardisation of our product. If you want to run it in your company, you should definitively become a member.

Through this body, everyone can have an impact on the way that our product grows. Thanks to this initiative, your voice will be heard and you will be helping to shape the features of Jaaz Portal.

We dream of one day releasing the product as Open Source through our Jaaz Alliance. The basic version of Jaaz Portal shall be free to anyone, but if you become a member of our alliance, you will also receive technical support and help in its deployment in your company or organisation.

Of course, we will also provide commercial versions of our software. Packaged in Personal, Community and Business Editions, these will serve the needs of individuals, organisations and commercial entities. The cost for your enterprise will be marginal as we will license them on a per user scheme.

Therefore, if you are a traditional hardware provider or data centre, and you think that your business should transform and be open to the new mass market of individual customers, we are inviting you to join our Jaaz Alliance. This way, you will be able to have your say on the future of our product and will receive all the technical help you require regarding deploying and running our software.

Only by combining the industrial strength of small businesses and the variety of solutions offered can we hope to defeat the Internet Giants. Only by coming together and pooling our efforts can we offer our users a competitive solution. Only by joining the Jaaz Alliance will we not share the fate of local retail shops, which have almost vanished in the face of competition from supermarkets.

Think of future of your business and prepare to enter the mass market. Come together with the Jaaz Portal and be part of the Jaaz Alliance.
