Attention All Web Designers! Free C I Host Web Hosting for Life [June 21, 2004]

FORT WORTH, Texas, Jun 21, 2004 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- In another "crazy like a fox" marketing move, C I Host, a global leader in Web hosting and Internet infrastructure, is giving every Web designer, developer or software programmer on the planet free Web hosting for life!

"There are more than 600,000 Web designers and developers across the country and we are prepared to host every single one of them free of charge," said Christopher Faulkner, CEO of C I Host. "It gives us a ready-made marketing channel and puts more money in their pockets."

One of the best features of the program is the quality of the hosting package -- a robust service that includes 1,000 MB of space, 20 GB of transfer, and unlimited email accounts that can be offered to employees, family members or others.

In addition, as C I Host resellers, Web designers and developers will receive a healthy bounty for any new hosting clients they refer to C I Host.

"This is another revenue stream for their businesses and another way for us to get the word out about the importance of a C I Host Web hosting package to the success of small and medium sized businesses," Faulkner said. "Of the 40 million small businesses in this country, only 36 percent have Web sites. We hope that we can work with Web designers to boost that number, help those small businesses succeed and increase our customer base."
