Win a Free Domain & Free Hosting For Your WordPress Blog Contest

May 14, 2007 by  

Update: Sorry, the contest has ended as of 6 november 2007. is holding a contest targeted towards bloggers. The winners will get free domain names and free WordPress blog hosting for life.


How it works

To participate in the contest, write a review of and post it to your blog. For every five entries I received, one winner will be selected at random to win a free domain name.

Once we have five domain name winners, those winners will go into drawing for a free WordPress blog hosting for life. The draw will be repeated for every 5 new domain name winners.



Free Domain Name & Free WordPress Blog Hosting Contest Rules

By entering the contest, you agree with these rules and agree to be bound by their terms. If you do not agree with these rules, please do not enter the Contest.


The review

  1. The review must be least 200 words long and link to, this contest page, and at least one other post.
  2. When linking to a post, you should use the title of the post as your anchor text. Here’s an example

    You can find tips to help you increase your blog’s PageRank here: How to Increase Your Blog/Site Google PageRank

  3. To enter your review, please contact me using the Contact form and tell me about it.
  4. Reviews can be positive, negative or neutral but they have to be genuine and informative and not thrown in with another post.
  5. All qualify entries will be linked from future posts at depending on how things go. The entries will be grouped into batches, and each batch consists of 5 entries.
  6. Entries from splogs a.k.a or spam blogs will not be accepted. This includes scraper blogs where content are grabbed from other sites in an automated way. If you are unsure of what splogs are, read here.
  7. Your blog must be at least one month old and contain at least three earlier posts to qualify
  8. The contest will run for as long as my server can handle the extra resource demands and as long as I can afford to give away free domain names. The contest can be stopped at anytime once winners are selected. But, I’d really want to give free domains and the free hosting for life:)
  9. Rules are all subject to changes as necessary. Please refer to this post for updates. I would recommend you to subscribe to feed to keep track with the latest development regarding this contest and other news.


The free domain name

  1. Keep in mind that I won’t be paying the free domain for life. I will give you USD10 for a domain name.
  2. You have to accept PayPal for the $10 as I shouldn’t actually buy the domain for you. It’s up to you to do what you want with the domain.
  3. You have 1 in 5 chances of winning a free domain. Regardless of whether you win or not, you’ll be linked from This is good for your PageRank and Technorati ranking.


The free WordPress blog hosting

  1. The free hosting will remain as long as I am able to retain my dedicated server – meaning as long as I am in business ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. The free hosting is strictly for WordPress blog hosting only. It must be a brand new blog setup.
  3. You have 1 in 25 chance of winning the free hosting. If you win, you must take advantage of this offer no later than one month after the result is announced.
  4. You may use the free domain name you’ve won earlier or any other domain name you wish with the free hosting.
  5. Your blog will be hosted on the same server where is currently hosted. However, I reserve the right to transfer your blog into other share hosting package if necessary. Regardless where your blog is hosted, I will pay the hosting fee for you.
  6. I’ll help you setup the domain name and hosting on the new server. While you can ask me any questions regarding the server setup, I do not usually offer hosting support. From my experience hosting other people websites, you’ll probably rarely need support once your blog is up and running.
  7. You may not host a blog with the following content: Adult, racial intolerance, violent, gambling, get rich quick schemes, or any other content that is illegal or promotes illegal activity.
  8. Your free hosting package will come with the following features:

    Linux Operating System
    500 MB disk space
    10 Gig monthly data transfer
    5 MYSQL Databases
    5 FTP
    5 Sub domains
    20 POP3 Accounts

    Other features included in the package are CGI, PHP4, SSH, Perl, GD, Spam Assassin, SMTP, Sendmail, Awstats and all the necessary tools to help you get started right away. These specifications may change from time to time.

You have to be quick, because I’m not sure how the response will be like. The rules may change or this contest could end at anytime after winners are selected.

Update: In case you are wondering, yes this contest is still running. ๐Ÿ™‚
