    SAN DIEGO– April 13, 2006 – MIVA, Inc., (NASDAQ: MIVA), a leading independent Performance Marketing Network, today announced the promotion of James Harrell to vice president and general manager of its MIVA Small Business Division.

    “James has more than eight years of e-commerce experience and engineering management, and his promotion represents a significant step forward to the evolving future of MIVA,” said Peter A. Corrao, chief executive officer of MIVA Corporation. “MIVA and MIVA Small Business intend to expand our e-commerce offerings and platform, and James is a critical ingredient in delivering against that strategy,” said Corrao.

    “MIVA Small Business has positioned itself well to provide e-commerce solutions that are flexible, reliable and easy-to-use,” said James Harrell, vice president and general manager of MIVA Small Business Division. “I plan to work very closely with our partners in the development of strong e-marketing services, further solidifying the Company’s market leadership.”

    Most recently, James was the director of software development at MIVA Small Business where he was a prime driver in guiding the growth of services and software solutions to end users. Prior to joining MIVA Small Business, James was chief technology officer and a founding partner of Copernicus Business Systems, one of the premier MIVA Merchant software development partners that was subsequently purchased by MIVA Small Business in 2005. While under James’ reign, Copernicus Business Systems grew to a profitable e-commerce start-up with a sales growth of more than 250 percent in one year of operation.
