WHAT IS IT FOR?
We'd like to thank our most contributive members (you!) by offering you a free web hosting package so that you can start your own website (or switch over to us for free if you already have one). All you need is 25+ approved layouts submitted to CB.


WEBHOST SPECS
-5GB Disk Space
-50GB Monthly Traffic
-Unlimited MySQL DBs
-Unlimited Email Accounts
-Unlimited FTP Accounts
-Unlimited Subdomains
-Cpanel 11
-Dedicated IP
-PHP 5, MYSQL 5, APACHE 2
-99.9% Uptime Guarantee

I've set aside a dedicated server just for this purpose so load times will always be very low. The specs for the server is: Dual xeon dual core 2.8 GHz, 2GB ram, SCSI 10k Hard drives.


SO WHAT'S THE CATCH?
There is no catch! All you need is 25+ approved layouts submitted to CB to take advantage of this offer! You don't need to be an Official member / designer or staff member. It's completely free and ad-free! Best of all, you get complete control of your website, from cpanel to ftp to website stats. All we ask is that you link back to createblog.com.


SO HOW DO I GET STARTED?
PM me with your domain name (you must own it, if you don't have one, get one at godaddy.com) and your contact email (to send you for account info). If you don't own a domain name, you can opt for a subdomain on bloghead.com (ie micron.bloghead.com). Setup time is 3 days. Cheers!

If you have friends who make excellent layouts, please pass this along!

Jusun, there is a typo. xD You firstly stated 35+ approved layouts then you say 40+ approved layouts.

This is pretty awesome btw.

What if the 25+ layouts are real bad, and ugly yet good enough for createblog(like it meets the terms) it should be like 25+ well coded/designed layouts.. or something. what if people abuse that and try and add a whole lot of layouts just to get webhosting here.. ermm.gif im just thinkin maybe some people would try to do that..and exactly who is going to be making/setting up who gets it..you or the admins and staff? just curious. good ass idea though. clap.gif

^ i think 25+ is reasonable. i want a figure that's reachable, yet require some time and effort to reach. to answer your question: ill be setting up the hosting accounts, but after that, its up to the user to set up his / her website through ftp and / or cpanel. cb is running on several servers, and it just so happens that we have a lot of space + bandwidth to spare. =D

Oh yeah i know 25+ layouts is very reasonable..but im talking about the quality of the layout someone could be more than qualified by having 50+ layouts(just saying) but what if those arent that good..they look ugly basically. are there gonna be specific terms against the type of look your layouts should be..like how they cant look wack or something?

like;

no direct linking.. no uploading alot of audio and images on it..
because ive heard it takes up to much space and the person who hosts you doesnt like it.. idk. mellow.gif

Just a question. What happen if they don't get their site set up in time or not at all? Should there be a time frame in order to get the site up for like a couple weeks?

^ oh, im sure our staff members will notice if someone is submitting crappy layouts just to take advantage of this feature. also, staff members can reverse their original decision to reject an approved layout. i guess what ill do is before setting up the hosting account, ill review their layouts to see if its up to par, and if not, prune their layouts to more closely reflect our standard of quality.

but once they recieve their hosting account, unless they decide to pull all their layouts, it will be a lifetime account. it would only be fair this way, so that those who already benefit from this offer will be immune from future pruning of our database, which happened a couple of times in the past.

This is so cool and great. I've wanted my own site for years now... freewebs recently made their site ad crazy and co.nr is blah.
Its a shame that i just got here though. ugh... -___-
How long will this free hosting last?

On the subject of how long things are going to last, you don't have any intention of getting rid of the old cbstaff subdomains, do you?

Oh the note of cBstaff, Just wondering, what were the specifications (space, bandwidth) of that? I can't remember. Feel free to PM me if that information should not be divulged in this thread.

cbstaff.com is located on a different server, and space is more constricted. you start off with 100mb but more is possible upon request and justification. as for bandwidth, its unlimited. but keep in mind that cbstaff.com subdomains should only be used for personal purposes. for the hosting account, its unrestricted and you're free to do whatever you want as long as it isn't illegal.

Maybe domain names can be like a prize for future contests... (and maybe free hosting too?)

I just think we need better incentive for people to participate in contests etc.

Can't you get it for free some places? :\ if not it only costs like $3 something.


I'm not sure. But I don't have a credit cared and I can't figure out paypal.

If you find a place tell me please!

I would take advantage of the free hosting if I submitted my layouts, but I havn't created a myspace layout in the longest time, maybe this would give me the kick i need XD.gif


yeah i dont submit myspace layouts anymore for a reason.. they're a pain in the ass.

you can always submit regular website layouts :D
