FEATURED GIVEAWAY: Hosting for Writers

Today we bring you another FEATURED GIVEAWAY, this time courtesy of Hosting for Writers.  What is Hosting for Writers?  Read on to find out more about them and their awesome giveaway!

Introducing Hosting For Writers

Established in 2004, first to run my own accounts on, and then, as a sidebar, to provide writers and work at home moms common sense hosting that wasn't cluttered by difficult terms, or things that they didn't need, we've been in the business of supporting anyone in need of reliable, solid hosting for nearly 10 years.  I put my sites where everyone else's are, and use the same systems - and with over 100 domains of my own, I wouldn't have it any other way.  Our hosting is reliable (99.5% or greater in the last 12 months), top of the range, and designed to ensure that you're getting the most out of your hosting.  Our servers are fast, because we believe in ensuring that accounts are given extra space, just in case.  We currently run four different hosting nodes, and are planning to expand as we grow - with six members of staff covering tickets too, we're an intimately sized, intelligent company that prides ourselves on solid hosting.  We also retrieve people from poor hosting, clean up hacks and provide marketing advice and support for those that just aren't technical.

Many people ask why we founded a hosting company if there are already lots of them out there - the short answer was that there *are* so many of them out there that offer the same language, the same ideas, and the same barrier of entry for those that just don't 'do techie.'  All of our team are well-versed in making sure that we're not dumbing down your needs, but are instead meeting you where your understanding is and ensuring that you've got the tools YOU need to go on and build a successful site.  Everyone needs a website, and they're so cheap and easy to run for the most part that I was sad to see people missing out.  In conjunction with projects like Warpaintmarketing and the Finishing Fairies, I've designed a hosting system that I believe is as no fuss, no muss as possible.

Wordpress installs come on request as standard, at no extra cost.  We move people using sensible cost scales and we answer questions as quickly, efficiently and as understandably as we can. We offer no nonsense, no clutter, easy to use accounts, with various features - managed and unmanaged, English based tech support, and an owner that can translate 'tech' to normal, relatable terms.  And if your account happens to exceed your limits, we don't lock you down straight away - we help you either meet those limits, or work with you to find a way to keep your site operational until you can afford to upgrade.  We offer everything from single accounts to reseller services, and will always tell you what the most efficient way to host 1, 2 or even 10 or more domains actually is.

We're delighted to sponsor Armchair BEA this year, with the following prizes:

1 fully featured Wordpress install, with two hours of theme customisation and one year of hosting.  If required, we can even move your blog from Wordpress.com/Blogger as part of the prize.  We don't move from Weebly.

2 auxiliary prizes of a year's free hosting for two lucky winnners, with 250mbs space and 2gbs bandwidth.

All hosting renews after the first year at $80 per year, or on a monthly basis on request.  All winners need to do is have their domain name ready and we'll walk them through the rest.

To enter, simply fill out the form below.  All three winners will be chosen using this one form.  The entry form is open until Saturday, May 31 at 12:00 Midnight EST.  The winner will be contacted via email as well as announced here on the site once all featured giveaway winners are confirmed.  Winner will be required to confirm prize winnings within 48 hours, so be sure you are watching your email closely.
