News & projects by AETHYX MEDIAE and WordPress

The term “weblog” was coined at the end of 1997 by Jorn Barger. The first web service offering weblogs for an individual was Blogger in 1999, today a property of Google Inc.. However, it took until 2003 that this word was taken as a standard for this kind of medium by mainstream media. This means, all who did have a weblog before 2003, be happy: You may call yourself avant-garde!

A weblog has different core features which distinguish it from other forms of online publications, e.g. online forums:

  • chronological, newest is on top of the web page
  • comments for each entry
  • links to monthly archives
  • categories for entries
  • search function (although shared with other online mediums, of course)
  • embeddable media, like images, videos, etc. these were primarly created manually by html tags
  • templates for only a handful of pages, mainly html

From these core features, a plethora of functions emerged: RSS/Atom feeds. Tagging. User management. Blogrolls (a collection of links in the sidebar). Templating. Smart URLs. And whatnot.

In fact, what we use, especially with WordPress or Drupal, these are complete suites which we call today CMS, content management systems. Always backed by a database, e.g. MySQL or MariaDB, which can become very huge over a certain period of time.

From weblogs it was only a small step to the often critised (but important and honest) “citizen journalism”. As you may read up, this wasn’t new either, what was completely new was the fact that an individual, or a group of individuals, could do this online and, hypothetically, reach the whole world. For not spending a penny at all, in the case of Blogger for example.

Today, blogs are everywhere: Be it a corporation displaying news in this form, in a “1-click-publishing-form” like Tumblr, or something else. In different states, e.g. Saudi-Arabia, to this day, Bloggers are executed for telling stories about their reality online.

Blogs may protect freedom of speech anywhere, but they may also be used as a weapon for hatred, like seen in European states where right-wing parties flourish since a couple of years. As always, it’s a double-sided sword. Never forget, that it’s the history of the Internet itself which makes them so.

As you can see: Starting is as easy as at the end of the 90s. What we do here at AETHYX MEDIAE is not that different: All we do is giving you the opportunity to use your own domain for your own medium, your own weblog, your own CMS. And if you didn’t hide under stones in the 90s or early 2000s, you should already own and know what a domain is, right?

We use WordPress since 2005 with success and although we read from time to time it has “flaws”, never experienced one problem with it. It became very powerful, very extensible over time, maybe like a labyrinth for starters.

We want to help you in navigating through this labyrinth! As you may see after a couple of months, or maybe even only weeks, this can be a helluva fun! We even set up WordPress for free when you are age 14 or under! Just have a look what we offer right now, we are sure there is something for anyone:

Feel free to contact us anytime, 24/7! We even accept Bitcoin for those who want to stay anonymous!

We think today it’s more important than ever to be an active individual or organization. You know what the proverb says: What doesn’t go with time, goes after some time. And we don’t think you want, or should, go forever. 😉

We did it!

After over 5 pretty hard years we finally developed our first own design! <3 We know we promised this action a long time ago. And now it's live without the help of any Aliens (we promise).

We hope you like the new positivity and our lemon fresh look!

As you may have seen, we are currently developing a lot more than just WordPress projects.

Right now it’s possible to hire us for:

  • Ebook publishing of your WordPress blog
  • Android development
  • personal cloud space

As always we don’t know what lies ahead as an independent publishing house. As you may have seen a lot has changed and a lot more will happen in the future.

We are looking forward in walking the way together with you into a brighter future!

Bestest,
your aethyx staff

First of all: Happy New Year, of course!

We hope you enjoyed the few days you had and are ready for what lies ahead of you. You probably should.

We are still interested in convincing you to join us and our small & young team as a customer!

So, what we did first this year was to change our offer for your own WordPress webhosting with us. For the better. ^^

As you may have already read, we made some postings about this new adventure. Maybe this was not clear enough, which was our fault. Sorry!

Here comes the definitive brand new proposal for you, you certainly won’t regret it:

===THE AETHYX.COM WORDPRESS WEBHOSTING PACKAGE===

* 1 domain name of your choice for free
* 5GB webspace (NEW!)
* Unlimited traffic
* 50 Email accounts with Email-Spamfilter (NEW!)
* 10 subdomains (NEW!)
* newest version of WordPress, the state of the art CMS, preinstalled (1 MySQL database included, of course)
* choose up to 10 plugins you like from here: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/ OR choose up to ten from http://wordpress.org/plugins/. We configure anything and make them run
* installation of your own custom theme from inside your new WordPress OR choose one from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/
* installation of your own independent counter for free (see expCounter for details). If you prefer Piwik, we can install that too, but it’s more restrictive in counting visitors
* fast & reliable servers located in Germany
* servers are 100% powered from renewable energy ressources
* 1 cron job included (to be fair, not from within your webspace directory, but from your web URL) (NEW!)
* brand new SSL certificate 99€/domain per year or 159€ for 2 years OR, if you already have one, this will cost 30€/year for installation and maintaining
* but: SSL over proxy is included for free (NEW!)
* price: 5€/month (terminable to the end of any month)

As you can see, we pimped everything and you will not pay one more cent for it! 🙂 The most interesting part for you will be that the webspace alone was increased by 400%! Yay!

As already stated: This offer will end as soon as 10 new customers are found. So don’t hesitate, just drop us a line: info[at]aethyx.eu!

Stay true, stay sharp.

All the best,
the aethyx staff

If you are looking for a completely new WordPress-Webhosting-package we introduced an unique special offer last month.

Some more information, here is a little update:

* fast & reliable servers located in Germany
* servers are 100% powered from renewable energy ressources
* brand new SSL certificate 99€/domain per year or 159€ for 2 years (unfortunately, we have no control over this price)*

The domain included in this package is for a new registration. If you already have one and want to port it to us this is no problem. In this case we need to calculate a new price which will be below the 5€ per month we introduced last month.

To be fair, our special offer was for completely new authors who want to start their very first project. It needs some effort to port domains and databases and stuff, so we also need to calculate a separate price for this porting service if you are moving to us. Also keep in mind that it needs some time for ICANN to transfer domains. You won’t be able to start immediately with us, ten to 14 days should be realistic.

*In fact it is possible to install a certificate if you already have one, but keep in mind this will cost 30€/year for installation and maintaining.

Enough of this, drop us a line when you are ready to get things started: info[at]aethyx.eu!

All the best,
the aethyx staff
