In addition to the Ascendents℠ quality video player and search function, we have introduced two new programs -- advertising and royalties.
We made the royalties program to give the music industry the credit it deserves for being the most incredible force in promotions and advertising.




2017-10-31: version 3 final

The end of the old site.


For three years, the basic designs (the v1 original and v2 and v3 partial reload versions) have served countless millions of visitors, and literally, it would take forever to document the number of times and reasons Ascendents.net over-extended its capacity. In addition, it would also take forever to document the number of user-enhancement features have been borrowed from us, however; a great site is deeper than user-experience. Instead of only physically expanding server capacity, Ascendents.net stayed compact and invested in evolving technology by writing smarter code that brings the performance to the client-side, consuming less resources per visitor. The newest versions are designed to be even more scalable and sustainable.
