    Hey,
    Just got a e-mail from my web host offering a 99% off discount on any of their hosting plans (I think it also includes reseller)

    Here is the e-mail:
    The coupon is still active and I just tried it, I have been with Hosterbox for a while now and they are definitely a great hosting provider.

    Even hostgator offers same. These all hosting offers are only for 1 month. If they offer yearly or bi yearly, they have to shut down their company.

    Ya but I think that would speak a bit for the service... I understand companies selling the first month for 99% like Hostgator, Hosterbox and many other but offering it for 6 months, thats going to mean that the servers will be oversold like crazy since no company can actually afford to offer a decent service for pretty much free for 6 months.

    Also the slogan, "We send Godaddy into his mommy" doesn't sound very professional to me, bit sketchy to be honest.

    some companies prefer to give something free to the users instead of spending on ads which might never convert into sign ups

    Ya I can understand that and thats why they do the whole 99% off thing but for 6 months that must bring in a lot of spammy users, I would hate to be a paying client beside these almost free users on the same server. Its only personal opinion but ya i understand.

    yep, I also understand but a spammer could spam with any other host which offers 99% off for one month. Just spam and leave after a few days :D

    Most web hosts make such offers every now and then.

    Well I know Mazgalic and he was my proxy supplier for scrapebox he does have a professional service, when I got some issues due some proxies giving erros he replaced then at the same time and gave me a bonus, he also sent me some shared proxies wich was going to expire in a matter os 7-10days for testing propourse (I used to buy him private proxies). I gave a try now because the code seems to be working, When I was a regular customer in proxies I was really happy with the service noone could be them in quality and price I hope its the same with the hosting later on I'll make a better review I'm fucking freezing here and its been hard to type lol its like 9ÂșCelsius wich It can be considered as a hell for a brazilian.
