Alex Tew : The million dollar home page

Important : If you have an envious streak, you probably shouldn’t read this.

Because chances are, Alex Tew, a 21-year-old student from a small town in England, is cleverer than you. And he is proving it by earning a cool million dollars in four months on the Internet.

Selling porn? Dealing prescription drugs? Nope. All he sells are pixels, the tiny dots on the screen that appear when you call up his home page.

I Heard About him few months ago and i did visit his million dollar home page , it was kind of empty alot of free space ..
today i was amazed by the site , Tew’s home page now looks like an online Times Square, festooned with a multi-colored confetti of ads.!!

His site was Attacked by DDoS attack:

I can confirm that MillionDollarHomepage.com has been subjected to a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack by malicious hackers who have caused the site to be extremely slow loading or completely unavailable since last Thursday, 12th January 2006.

I can also confirm that a demand for a substantial amount of money was made which makes this a criminal act of extorsion. The FBI are investigating and I’m currently working closely with my hosting company, Sitelutions, to bring the site back online as soon as possible. More news soon.
