Milliondollarhomepage was a pixel advertising website created by a college student in UK, where million pixels were sold for USD 1 /- each and it became famous worldwide. There was lots of copies of the same around the world to cash in on the easy money making oppurtunity. However, the concept though new, did not provide any specific benefits to the visitors or the advertisers(except in case of traffic due to news) .

Sandeep, who had left his Vice- President post with Malwa Industries(Oswals ) - a Textiles Group - to start on his own was attracted by the internet phenomenon and came across the news on Milliondollarhomepage.
