THE BEST IS GETING BETTER
We are pleased to announce that we have
completed the conversion of Iran Online files, scripts and software to
a new computer operating environment. This has been a major milestone
for us. In the last few weeks the technical staff of Iran Online has been
working very hard to make this transition transparent to our visitors.
Our new computer operating environment has been a major financial undertaking
which we have gladly accepted. It allows us to serve the intellectual needs
of our visitors better and to support Iranian businesses around the globe
more effectively. We are very excited about our new system. We believe
that we are now better equipped to serve our visitors, to provide web hosting
and to support advertising needs of businesses that cater their services
to the Iranian communities around the globe. We can now expand our wide
range of services at a faster paste while adding new features. We
can now proudly state that "THE BEST IS GETTING BETTER".
One of the changes is our new chat software.
It offers all the features of its predecessor plus additional features
that you have been asking for. We have also added three new chat
rooms. We invite you to take advantage of our enhanced online
Even though we have tested various parts
of our new system exhaustively, there may be areas that have been overlooked.
We ask you to inform us about failures that you may experience via email.
Iran Online can now be accessed through
two URLs. The first one is "IranOnline.com" and the second
one is "IrOL.com". We activated the second URL recently to make it
easier for our visitors to remember and access Iran Online.
All the pages and features of Iran Online are available through both URLs.
Therefore, it is just a matter of personal choice and ease of remembering
Iran Online continues to grow. In
the last few weeks, we have further expanded the "Literature" section.
Poems from some of our best poets have been added to this section.
We have also added a permanent section to the "Iran Online Museum of Art"
highlighting calligraphy. Selected works or Mr. Esrafil Shirchi,
one of the renowned Persian contemporary artists is highlighted here.
"Iran Online Newsroom" has also been expanded to provide access to more
than eighty news agencies across the world. For many people, the
Newsroom has become one stop source of news about Iran and the world. New
issues of IranGohar, the Iranian women newsletter, and ICOCC newsletter
have also been posted during this period.
More people are learning about the free
"Classified Advertising" section and take advantage of this service.
Iran Online visitors continue to sign the "Guestbook" and voice their opinion
about Iran Online.
We encourage you to visit these sections
and look for upcoming additions.
Our popularity among Iranian Internet
community is growing at a rate faster than we could have ever imagined.
What is interesting is the wide range of interests that is shown by our
visitors. Keeping up with all the interests and demands have become
a major undertaking for us, which we accept whole heartily.
We are also working on adding new features to better serve the Iranian
community. As Iran Online continues to grow, it requires more resources
and funds for its day to day operation. These costs can only be offset
by advertising fees and web hosting services that we offer through our
parent company, Manou & Associates Inc. If you think Iran Online
provides a positive and valuable service to the Iranian community and would
like to take part in its growth, then we ask you to help us promote its
advertising and web hosting services among Iranian business owners.
We also ask you to support businesses that advertise their services and
products in Iran Online and in your other favorite Iranian Internet sites.
Help us better serve you. This time you can make a difference.
