GriotSites™ was established in 2007 under the name Universal World Webs. The name change to "GriotSites Web Hosting & Designs™" occurred in January of 2014 to accompany the sister book publishing company Griot Publishing House. The Griot Headquarters was birthed and still resides in beautiful Arizona, known for its high plateau, low desert, rugged mountains, hidden canyons and riparian ecosystems AND sunshine all year around!
We originally created GriotSites™ to give authors and artists the tools they need to display and sell their published books online. We believe that housing your own books and/or products on your own Web Property means more return on your investment as you grow your online presence.
We are now a full-service web hosting and web Design Company who has and continues to produce beautiful Web Properties for many start-up businesses and corporations. What is the secret to our success? Our Awesome Customer Service, Satisfied Clients, and our LOVE for what we do!
Because We Absolutely LOVE What We Do, That's Why!
These days, it is hard to find something that you LOVE to do AND turn what you do into a business. Our love for writers became a heartfelt mission to provide an atmospheric One-Stop-Shop for all types of writers. Everything from Web Designing, Domain registration to Book publishing and Marketing. We do it ALL, and we are good at too. Check out what others are saying here.
Keep in mind that we even cater to those who are not writers. Even though we believe that everyone has a story to tell, you may not be interested in telling yours. If you have a business and in need of an eye catching, statement making website, you too are in the right place!
Naming the umbrella company "Griot International, LLC" allowed CEO and Creator T'Malkia Zuri to create different entities that specialize in helping others to tell their story in one format or another. She wanted to create beautiful Web Properties that, in some ways, tell the author's story using graphics and texts. GriotSites was the perfect name because it speaks for itself-
Griot (storyteller) + Sites (web properties) = GriotSites
Because we are in the profession of story telling, it only makes perfect sense to name the entities under Griot International, LLC™: GriotSites, Griot Publishing House, and GriotBooks.

Why waste money, time, and energy on creating a Web Property (website) for temporary usage when you can just rent a custom Web Property for a fraction of the cost?
