Upgrades, Audits, Crazy!

Well it’s nearly that time again! Crazy October is right around the corner! Specials are going to be coming to the second full week of October (Monday the 13th) as well as a promotion to tie into the usual Crazy October specials!

A new site look and feel is underway, and it’s coming along quite nicely (if I do say so myself) but I am actively working to get some of the front-end of FlockHosting caught up as my primary goal has been the backend which has been coming along nicely, new enhacements are working nicely, and new mail options are nearly out of the testing phase – special thanks to testers!

I had hoped to have a newsletter out, but the joys of working everywhere lately, busy, which is good, but sometimes time isn’t always available, spent nearly 12 hours sleeping Sunday->Monday, so a nice catch up – but it’s time for some FH TLC! So stay tuned here for more! Off to update the site’s backend in prep for the upcoming changes, so things may be a little out of sorts for a bit.

Crazy October – Standing Packages

So you asked, I am going to provide – over the remaining time there will be random specials, offers, so do check back, but for the remainder of the event, the following packages to new customers:

New Customers

The first new package is: The $120 Package (No, not monthly) – for 1 year of hosting, it’s all pre-paid, and it’s something special – this is a yearly offer, but good for as long as you keep the account active, and since it’s 1 year, your domain is free! So without further delay “The Package“:

  • 750MB Storage
  • 50GB Transfer
  • 100 POP3
  • 6 MySQL Databases (Great for Fantastico!)
  • 5 Parked Domains / 2 Add-on Domains (Domains not included)

Now for those who don’t need something so big, a smaller offer for half the price, same pre-pay, so for $60/yr there is the “Other Package“:

  • 450MB Storage
  • 25GB Transfer
  • 50 POP3
  • 3 MySQL Databases (Great for Fantastico!)
  • 5 Parked Domains / 1 Add-on Domains (Domains not included)

Current Customers

So those will stand till the end of the month, so don’t delay! Now onto current customers, the following upgrade is up for grabs, good on any standard account, and it’s only $50/yr – so it gives you some more space, for a great price:

  • +150MB Storage
  • +10GB Transfer
  • +10 POP3
  • +3 MySQL Databases (Great for Fantastico!)
  • +1 Add-on Domains (Domains not included)

All this will be added to your account, to upgrade you just need to contact_me, and I will get you all setup! So don’t delay – this too is on-going, if you have any questions if your eligible ask away!

Randomly throughout the remaining Crazy October time, there will be some free upgrades to random orders placed, special “Free Hosting” offers which crop up here on the blog, and more! So stay tuned!

Crazy October (10/17)

Some people have suggested a set of limited edition packages to run thru the entire month vs. a daily promotion, and that’s being taken under advisement, but in the mean time, some offers for today, aiming towards you who don’t need a lot of fluff or frills, and for current customers, some extra bandwidth to see you thru the month!

Current Customers

Current customers can easily upgrade and utilize 15GB of additional bandwidth a month for $5 a month – or if you wish to simply pre-pay it fora year, $50 for a year, offer is good on any Crazy October from years past (this year’s specials are not eligible) – so if you need more bandwidth, it’s a low add-on fee a month, or a simple yearly payment. As usual, to get these promotions simple contact_me to get rolling.

New Customers

Simple Simple Package (so simple, we said it twice!) – this package is really light weight, as most people don’t realize how small websites tend to be for most this package is great for a blog, simple website, businesses wanting a simple Business Card website, here’s the specs:

  • 125MB Storage
  • 5GB Transfer
  • 2 Email Accounts (Unlimited Aliases)

Crazy October (10/16)
