New Year – New News!

So starting off this update with a quick note — tonight Shepherd will be undergoing some maintenance, the data center is going to be re-locating data to some new hardware, total downtime at worst should be maybe 30 minutes, but working on it in early morning hours to try and avoid disruption to businesses and normal flow of visitors best we can! Keep an eye on Twitter/Facebook/Customer Zone for any changes/modifications to the plan, but as soon as data is swapped should be fairly quick.

// End Quick Note

Big Happy New Year! To all of you! Was a rocky December and January but things are smoothing out, it’s set the website and new support area time-tables back a bit but nothing I can’t get caught up with sooner than later I hope but my priority at the moment is getting everything stabilized not new sales! So I do hope to get back on track soon but you guys come first!

Plans for this new year are still a re-design of the site as you can see some new digs here at the blog, might be a preview of things to come 🙂 but other things this year include but not limited to:

  • Advanced HTML Editor
  • Improved Support Area and Support Options
  • Deals on Software for managing your website
  • Projecting 2 new servers this year!
  • New Products for Churches
  • …. and much more!

That’s really just a teaser, some I am trying to move forward with and get online soon, but stability has been my biggest concern and my foremost commitment to customers, I want customers to be excited and confident in what FlockHosting can do, granted there’s been a good track record over the years, but a few bad spots here and there as of late may not put a bad taste in your mouth (and thank you for your patience with all of it) but for me I want to strive to do better, and provide all of you with the best service I can provide!

So keep me in your prayers, doing to be some long months, busy nights, and lots of top ramen 🙂 but 2011 is going to be a great year! Already planning Customer Appreciate Month! Also some deals in the pipeline coming which may be a plus to share with a friend or two! So stay tuned, prayers are appreciated! And more very soon!

A Crazy October!

So October’s specials were not what I had hoped, too many misc. server issues seemed to get in the way, but I want to give things one last chance to really be crazy!

For the next Week (ends Tuesday 11/10) you can use the discount code GETCRAZY on any current package (includes Email) to save 25% off the package when you pay for 1 year in advance (or two) – PLUS your domain is free!

For those just looking for some savings, across all packages purchased for 6 months, you will see a FREE domain as well. So something hopefully for everyone!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Crazt October Package!

30GB of Bandwidth
10 x 1GB Enhanced Email Accounts (Unlimited Aliases)

If your interested in this package click here! And your off and running!

First Promo, Late – but here!

My apologies for the delay in the posting of this, I had hoped to get this online sooner, but it has been busy around here for me! But better late than never! Remember 10% of all proceeds are being donated to the Hands and Feet Project!

This promo is 15% off any service purchased for a year, so if you pre-pay for a year you get 15% off the price, that’s for the new email service and the new hosting packages! It can only be used once per customer (open to customers New & Old!) so give it a whirl, at check out use code CO15FOR12 – this is valid until 10/31 or 25 uses, so please don’t delay!

Crazy October & Email Migrations!

More news from the wonderful world here @ FlockHosting! Crazy October is BACK! This year will mark the return of the Crazy October Specials! Going up this Friday, they will be valid for the entire month of October!

In addition this year I will be donating 10% of all accounts added (promo or otherwise) starting on Friday to go towards the Hands and Feet Project – I have worked with them in the past, and I am happy to donate 10% of earnings towards their ministry there!

Next on the docket is email, some users are getting a taste for the new enhanced email system – and now I am happy to announce free data migrations are possible! So if you are a email packrat (like myself) pick a size that works for you, and your off and running! Just open a ticket asking for a email migration after you make your order, I’ll send you a file you can open in Excel/OpenOffice/GoogleDocs and put in your current information, and your NEW information, and your off and ready to go.

So more to come with some great Crazy October Specials! Be sure to watch the Facebook & Twitter accounts for even more random deals!
