Win your own hosting/domain package!

Yesterday I blogged about the best way to acquire our own domain and enhance your professional writer image.

As some of you may know, I am a full time student, but I also build websites and do photography work to earn a living. To do so efficiently, I must rent a dedicated server (see this post to know what that means). I use that server to host my client's websites (as well as my own). However, since it is nowhere near capacity, I thought I could host a contest to celebrate the new year and help fellow writer-friends as well.

Therefore, I declare that I will be hosting my first contest today! The prize?

The domain of your choice (.com, .net) for a year
Professional dedicated hosting services for your e-mails and website for three years
Unlimited space and bandwidth to host your website, images, files
My personal support in setting up your blog and e-mail addresses, including your e-mail client configuration (Entourage, Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.)
Access to webmail (ability to access your e-mails from anywhere in the world via a web browser)
Full control panel access (DirectAdmin)
FTP access

All of which is valued at 800$ (calculated at 20$/month dedicated hosting over three years, domain cost and support cost). If you already have a domain/blog, I will extend the domain subscription by a year and offer the same hosting package. I'll simply reconfigure your current blogger account and the rest will be the same.

And I have FIVE packages to draw!

To enter, simply make a comment in the post below. Extra entries awarded as follows:

Old blog follower: +3 entries
New blog follower: +1 entry
Old Twitter follower: +3 entries
New Twitter follower: +1 entry

You tweeted (or facebooked or spread the word SOMEHOW) about this contest: +3 entries
You participated in at least one #QueryChat session: +1 entry
You think Carrie Fisher is fabulous: +1 entry

Let me know how many extra entries you get in your comment. If you forget, you get only one! I fookin' hate contests that ask to paste links for proof and I sure as shit won't be checking if you really tweeted the contest or are following me. Just comment, let me know how many entries you got, and you're set!

I'll probably check the winners out though, but I'm not worried about this. Honesty for all!

Contest closed.

Winners will be drawn on February 1st 2011 and contacted thereafter to set you up!
