Web Hosting Deals forum, and changes to Advertise Your Services
SitePoint would like to announce the creation of a new forum in the SitePoint Marketplace called Web Hosting Deals.
The Web Hosting Deals forum allows Web hosting companies to promote their web hosting, domain registration and email list hosting services to the SitePoint members. Members looking for hosting deals can browse and/or search the forum.
Web hosts can list their services for a special introductory fee of $29.95. Listings are non-expiring and can be edited at any time. Listings will enjoy the greatest exposure while they remain on the first page of results, as these will be the first ones seen by members looking for hosting deals.
The forum is a split-off from the existing "Advertise Your Services" forum. All web hosting offers from Advertise Your Services have been moved to the new forum, and Advertise Your Services no longer accepts web hosting related advertisements.
In other news, SitePoint has decided to reduce the fee for listing domain names to $4.95 based on feedback received from domain sellers about the fee. This should make it more attractive for domain sellers wanting to sell domains for low prices, and increase the variety of domains available for sale for buyers.
Web Hosting Deals is a new forum, any post in there has simply been moved into it from other sections (most likely Advertise Your Services). It's a different creature than AYS was, and I'm wondering why you're so overly concerned with it.
