The young British student and entrepreneur founded MillionDollarHomepage.com just over 4 months ago with the goal to sell pixels of his homepage space to advertisers for a dollar each to fund his university education. Globat.com was one of the very first major supporters of Alex's idea and the investment has paid off for the firm multifold.
"We gained tremendous exposure and also sent a message to young entrepreneurs world-wide that creativity and ingenuity will always capture the interest of progressive companies such as Globat. In Alex I saw the purest form of entrepreneurship. He set a high goal and succeeded," said Ben R. Neumann, President and CEO of Globat.com. "With our Web hosting services, we continue to support tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, but Alex's achievements appealed to us so greatly that we want to support such an imaginative entrepreneurial effort directly."
Alex Tew, 21, came up with the MillionDollarHomepage.com idea in late August of 2005. In early September the site went live and Globat.com made a substantial investment into Alex' pixel idea. Word rapidly spread across the Internet and through the media. Within 4 months Alex sold 999,000 pixels, enough to fund his three year university education many times over, with several hundred thousand dollars to spare. He is currently auctioning off his final 1,000 pixels on eBay(R). MillionDollarHomepage.com created media frenzy all over the world and received millions of visitors, making it one of the busiest sites on the Internet today. "Globat.com was very quick to support my efforts to become the first Internet pixel millionaire, and I appreciate their dedication to support creative entrepreneurs," said pixel millionaire Alex Tew.

Here is the real thing behind the success of
I am 31yrs old, and i live in Budapest.
The selling pixel idea came upon my pixel fault
notebook. I wanted to bring it back on guarantee, and
it made me wonder, how much a pixel is worth for. Then
came the idea to sell pixels. On the same day i
met him on the web (i knew him before) and he asked me
for help. Then i shared this brilliant idea with him
over the internet upon his request that he needs
"Own a piece of internet history" and "Selling Pixels"
are created myself, but "milliondollarhomepage" was
his own idea. He did not understand what is it, until
i took the time to explain him step by step.
I told him: "try for your studies".
Cut it short the idea is mine and not his at all, He
just integrated it into the milliondollarhomepage
