Who we are
In today's world an internet presence is more important than ever yet the technology for creating and hosting a website still eludes many due to its complexity and cost. Zhibit LLC was founded on the simple premise of empowering people to create a website as inexpensively and as easily as possible. We know you want to concentrate on that which you do best and not worry about designing your website, nor pay through the teeth to have a web designer do it for you.
I don't feel like I'm dealing with an Internet company and that's very nice.
Today Zhibit LLC
remains a small shop. We believe it puts us in a position to be on your side rather than on that of a large corporation. Many in our small group of dedicated individuals are themselves artists in their spare time and as such are attentive to what artists need. The services we offer on Zhibit.org are the same ones we'd like to see ourselves.
