About Us

PW New Media has been developing for both online and offline projects since 2000. Primarily using Microsoft technologies - originally Classic ASP and Visual Basic, whilst moving onto the .Net framework once it was released, we have produced a range of products and services for our customers - most notably our hosting services (sold under the LiquidSix Hosting brand) starting in 2004. To find out more about the products and services that we offer, please browse around our site and take a look!

If you are interested in reading about some of our past (and future) releases, please let us use this page to take you on a tour of our history for the past 17 years!
