Sitestar Announces Share Repurchase Program

Company Authorized for Repurchase of 10,000,000 Shares

LYNCHBURG, VA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2008) - Sitestar Corporation (OTCBB: SYTE), a provider of residential, business and wholesale Internet access, web hosting and value-added products and services, announced today that its board of directors has approved a share repurchase program authorizing the Company to acquire from time to time up to 10,000,000 shares of its common stock.

Erhartic, Jr., CEO for Sitestar.

Shares from the repurchase program may be made, depending on market conditions and the capital requirements of the Company, in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The program will be in compliance with Securities and Exchange Commission guidelines and applicable legal requirements and the Company is under no obligation to repurchase shares. The repurchase program may be expanded, suspended or discontinued at any time depending on the performance of the stock price, general market conditions and various other factors within on the discretion of management.
