CUCUG Announces its Sixth WWW Host Site

December 6, 1996 - The Champaign-Urbana Computer Users Group (CUCUG) announced today that CompuLink Network S.A. the biggest Internet service provider in Greece/Hellas with over 6,000 members and 35 connection points all over Greece/Hellas, would be hosting its popular World Wide Web site. CompuLink joins a coalition that now includes six Internet service providers worldwide which are hosting the Central Illinois user group's site.

A process known as "mirroring" makes a nearly identical copy of a Web site available to users closer to their own connection on the Internet. This usually results in more reliable connects and faster response, according to CUCUG webmaster, Kevin Hisel.

CompuLink spokesman George Kourkoutas said, "The mirroring of the CUCUG web pages will offer fast and reliable connection to the 20,000 Greek/Hellenic Amiga users for complete Amiga information."

According to Hisel, other mirrors are currently located in Australia, Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom. The primary CUCUG site is maintained at Champaign, Illinois in the United States.

CUCUG maintains the award-winning Amiga Web Directory and Agnes, an advanced Amiga WWW search utility. Both have become very popular with Amiga users throughout the world.

The address for the new CUCUG mirror site in Greece is:
