    Company Expands E-Commerce Offering with An Easier Way for Online Stores to Develop, Maintain and Grow an Online Business

    SAN DIEGO - April 25, 2006 - MIVA, Inc., (NASDAQ: MIVA), a leading independent Performance Marketing Network, today announced that its Small Business Division has launched MIVA Merchant Fast Track specifically designed for smaller, web-based businesses to create and manage their entire online store design. With this announcement, MIVA Small Business expands its product portfolio to two distinct lines: MIVA Merchant 5 for small-to-medium size businesses, and now MIVA Merchant Fast Track for smaller and start-up businesses.

    "MIVA Merchant Fast Track lowers the barrier to entry for small businesses who want to start selling online, delivering a solution that gives them an immediate web presence and a potentially long-term revenue stream," said James Harrell, vice president and general manager of MIVA Small Business Division. "MIVA enables the growing pool of small businesses worldwide to launch an online presence, and to deliver products and services to their customers in an easy and efficient manner."

    "MIVA Merchant Fast Track has a clean, simplified admin panel that makes it much easier to manage an online store," said Leslie Nord, Owner of Webs Your Way, a web design firm specializing in e-commerce. "Fast Track gives us the ability to change the look and feel of our store with the click of a mouse. All-in-all, MIVA Merchant Fast Track is a terrific solution for smaller businesses who want to start selling online."

    "MIVA Merchant Fast Track is a welcome addition to the MIVA Merchant product line, allowing small startup companies to get online and start selling quickly," said Steven Daris CEO of dotCom. "We are excited to offer this option to our clients, and we hope this will spur interest in e-commerce applications for many new online businesses, mutually benefiting and expanding both MIVA Small Business and dotCOM host client base."

    "The development of MIVA Merchant Fast Track is another example of MIVA's continued commitment to provide partners with reliable and easy-to-use tools, helping small businesses thrive in a very competitive online market," said Harrell.

    MIVA Merchant Fast Track provides a streamlined solution with enhanced functionality for small businesses, offering an easy way for online stores to develop, maintain and grow an online business. Fast Track is built for customers that need a simple and powerfully designed solution without broader comprehensive features or an increased data limit like MIVA Merchant 5.
