Congratulations! The World Wide Web turns 25 years old today

March 14th, 2014


Twenty-five years ago, the World Wide Web was just an idea from a young computer scientist at a European physics lab. Today, the simple idea had become a vital thing in everyone’s lives, linking BIILIONS of people together, thanks to Tim Berners-Lee for the great invention.

The young computer scientist started to invent the www in 1989. At first, he was rejected and ignored by his colleagues when he proposed.  However, with great perseverance, he wrote the first hypertext browser/editor (World Wide Web) and the first web server (http), which was launched to the public in 1991.

Two years later, there were more than 500 known web servers and the World Wide Web had counted for one per cent of the Internet traffic. Twenty years later there were already an estimated 630 million websites.

The Global Internet Usage Statistics 2013 shows that there are 2.4 billion Internet users around the globe. Today, www has become a part of our lives. Many cannot imagine life without the www.

Happy Thaipusam!

January 16th, 2014

One of the best things about having many races living in harmony is that, one gets to observe many types of celebration, one of them being Thaipusam. Just in case you didn’t know, Thaipusam comes from an amalgam of the words “Thai” – referring to the Tamil month of Thai (January – February), and Pusam – the brightest star during this period.


In conjunction with this celebration, our office will be closed on January 17th and resumes operation on January 20th as usual. However, should you need any assistance on anything at all, our professional technical team will still be working 24 ×7 to assist you in case you encounter any technical issue.

Happy Deepavali

November 1st, 2013

The best thing about being part of a multiracial country is that you get to experience a different celebration every now and then. If we had just celebrated the joys of Eid recently, now we welcome the festival of lights, also known as Diwali/Deepavali!


Deepavali or Diwali, a festival widely celebrated by Hindus and Indians in numerous countries, is a day when oil lamps are lighted up to thank the gods for the happiness, peace, knowledge and wealth that the Hindus and Indians have received. During this day, the ladies will be seen wrapping themselves in beautiful sarees and the men will be seen in dhotis, all geared up for grand feasts as well as temple visits with their friends and families.They would also light oil lamps to invite the blessings of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and to banish any evil from the household for once and for all.

To celebrate this special occasion, our office will be closed on 4th November 2013 (Monday) and resumes operation on 5th November 2013 (Tuesday). However, if you need any assistance during this time, don’t fret as our professional technical team is always ready to serve you 24×7 via Helpdesk at any time at all.

October 28th, 2013

Last Monday was an exciting day for us as we put on our headphones (some turned on the speakers!) to listen to our very own CEO, Mr Chan Kee Siak, being interviewed by the good people of BFM Radio (FM 89.9) yet again!


Although it was just a 15-minutes slot, we can’t help but to feel very proud that our very own CEO was on the radio, speaking to thousands of listeners, yearning to know about our business. It was 15 minutes of short-fame, that our CEO has managed to use wisely, in order to bring our brand name further — and he did it oh-so-confidently! How can we not be proud of him? :)

Just in case you didn’t know, this was not the first time the Exabytes brand was brought on air. In 2010, Mr Chan was invited by the same radio station to talk about Exabytes brand as a whole. This time around, he was brought back again to talk about our sister company, and how it’s working towards becoming a one stop online shopping mall. If you missed the session, click here to listen to it!

Now, any other radio station interested to get us on air?
