For Immediate Release - March 12, 2007
Hamburg, March 12, 2007 - Today we’d like to announce the official international launch of our new, browser-based, and easy to use service “Jimdo – Pages to the Peoples”. Jimdo allows people to create their own Jimdo-Page (website) for free!
The use of Jimdo is extremely easy; within seconds users can integrate texts, photo galleries, videos (also from YouTube), change the design, and add as many pages as they want. Jimdo is probably the easiest webservice to create an own website: the user always sees the page as the visitor does. He just has to click on i.e. the text, change it, save it – done!
There are two product versions of Jimdo: The JimdoFree-Page includes 500 MB (enough for approximately 12,500 photos) of storage space and is published at www.username.jimdo.com. The JimdoPro-Page includes 5 GB of storage space and is published at an own domain.
Both versions additionally have a password-protected area, a newslettersystem, a guestbook, interfaces to YouTube, flickr, del.icio.us – and the data transfer is of course also included!
All Jimdo-Pages are connected to the jimdo.com platform, see:
For further information and your own JimdoFree-Page please visit www.jimdo.com.
Jimdo was launched in Germany on February 19. The German press tested Jimdo better than Google’s Page Creator (http://golem.de/0702/50646.html), there were already several thousand users within the first days, user feedback was unbelievable and a cooperation with one major soccer-club was successfully started (official designs were integrated, fans can create their own free fan-page).
Jimdo was founded by Christian Springub (24), Fridtjof Detzner (23) and Matthias Henze (29) and is located in Hamburg, Germany.
