Support Rocks!

At the end of the year and the start of the year, I got a few donations in for FlockHosting’s Church Hosting! It’s an awesome blessing and really does help me out tremendously!

I’ve also gotten some notes from people wanting to donate quarterly and monthly – everything helps! I’m not asking for anyone to go hungry, but even if you just gave up a cup of coffee a week (I’m talking Starbucks PSL’s) and donate that for a month, you would be helping out churches galore!

But how does it help? Well just got an email yesterday from a church hoster who had this to say:

I want to say, once again, thank you for your ministry! We recently had a young couple come and join us at LUMC in large part because of our Website! That’s such a huge blessing! Jim N.

Awesome blessing to know that these website tools are helping to build a presence online that can help folks find the good news in their local area, visiting a nearby town, and more! Donations like those that have come in of even $5 one time help me to cover costs of many services including Weebly! It has some advanced features I can’t just foot the bill for – so this helps me help churches who need advanced features!

So thank you guys so much who’ve donated and agreed to donate – I wish I was a non-profit and could give you a perk back, but I know God won’t let your donations come back void! God Loves a Cheerful Giver! Thanks for cheerfully supporting FlockHosting’s free Church Hosting!

Founders Club + Church Hosting + Tax Day!

Here we are on Tuesday morning-ish, drawing closer and closer to the 15th and the end of a 10.4% discount code (1040EZ) & the Founders Club’s final 2 spots coming to a close, not to leave out Church Hosting which is continuing to grow… grow… grow! Few things to go over so let’s break it up

Founders Club

2 spots remain to join the ranks of this exclusive club, why do I call it “Founders Club” well it’s been part of a long-time idea for FlockHosting, to have a group of folks who help build FlockHosting, and $200 while gives lifetime hosting, it does bolster funds for FlockHosting in the short-term to build services and grow things like Church Hosting!

So if you’re dragging your feet because $200 is a lot of money, well think of these perks in addition to not having a hosting bill for your hosting:

  • 15% off all domain renewals & future hosting services (Email, VPS, Dedicated, You name it!)
  • Exclusive Free FlockHosting Gear – Shirts, Mousepads, and Hats planned.
  • Early Beta Access to New Services at No Cost.
  • Special Package Upgrades (More Storage, New Services, All at no cost!)
  • Random Perks Applied to other hosting accounts in your account, for instance Brenten may not of noticed that his other hosting account received a year renewal – No Cost – who knows what I’ll do next, maybe a mail server? VPS for a Designer who is in the Founders Club? Possibilities are endless!
  • More planned down the line!

It may not seem like much but those of you signing up for what seems like a spectacular deal of Lifetime Hosting – you are helping lay the foundation of FlockHosting today, for a stronger FlockHosting tomorrow, and if I can help build up your website be it a ministry, business or even a personal blog, let me return the favor!

Now I am not sure Founders Club spots will return, this time around was for a big foundational need, still not completely met, but it’s helped out a TON, so get in on this amazing deal to help not only you with your bottom line, but too help build FlockHosting’s services like Church Hosting to support even more churches! We nearly need another server… more on that next!

Church Hosting

It’s a passion of mine. I’ve greatly enjoyed the over 100+ churches who currently utilize Church Hosting, some are a delight to work with, while others are so self sufficient I don’t even know they are there except for the fact their website is getting traffic!

So it’s getting time to grow again, the current server while could likely handle another 100+ websites, it’s getting crowded, and I want Churches to enjoy speed not clogged lines. Let’s keep the message flowing free! Can you help raise some funds for a Server + Backup?

If you are not up for the $200 price tag of the Founders Club, then maybe a $10 donation? The donation buttons are still up on the old Crowd Funding Site, it’s secured with SSL, so feel free to donate, it’s not pretty – but never fear a full crowd funding plan is coming!

Tax Day!

For most you wouldn’t think this is a day of rejoicing – oh but it is 🙂 So to that end instead of being someone posting “Ugh Tax Day!” share a little joy – Post something uplifting and you can get a chance to win one of the following:

  • A Google Chromebook
  • 1 of 3 Google Chromecasts

It’s Google Tastic I know! But first thing in the morning (as in I’ll have it scheduled for 12:01 AM) a post will go in how you can share positivity on a day which can be stressful! Not creative, never fear, I’ll have formatted posts you can share from FlockHosting on Twitter & Facebook, you tag FlockHosting back – and you’re entered to win! Want to be sure I got it? You can always email the special address noted in the contest post.

Normally this is open to FlockHosting Customers only, but this time that’s different, FlockHosting’s going to spread a little joy too – ANYONE may post! Winners will be randomly selected and if at the end your Facebook or Twitter account is selected then I’ll get some details for shipping (United States Only) – so this time around maybe a few more folks will join in the fun to make Tax Day a little less depressing.

Stay tuned tomorrow for more! Have a BLESSED Day Today!
