Contest Winner Announcement: Free WordPress Hosting For Life

July 12, 2007 by  

I am excited to announce the first winner for the free WordPress Hosting for life contest.

Before that, I’d like to thanks all those who have entered. Even if you don’t win, you get a permanent linkback from a PageRank 5 blog.

Just to reiterate the rules of the free WordPress blog hosting to refresh our memory

  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 🙂
  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 (CentOS)

500 MB disk space

10 Gig monthly data transfer

5 MYSQL Databases


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 can read the full contest rules here.

Today I asked my assistance to draw the winner, and congrates goes to Andrew Raj of Andrew Raj’s Blog for winning the free WordPress hosting for life!

Andrew, I’ll be in touch with your and will help you setup your hosting account as soon as you have a domain name ready.

Thanks to everyone who took part. It was great fun. And remember, this contest hasn’t ended yet, I am going to give away more free domain names and WordPress hosting for life.. so keep your review coming!
