Advertising and Promotion

  • Ideally we would have 2 different landing pages, one for the “free” users and another for the “paying” users, so as not to overwhelm. We can call it “free” I think. with the quotes…
  • Faucet(s) can advertise the products most likely to be attractive to the users, e.g. a free minecraft server.
  • Charity site has SatoshiHost as the sponsor, ad in the footer. Same with the faucets.
  • Review section has its own page.
  • If we host a speedtest server we can gain some advertising and “brand awareness”, apparently.


There are forums for vps and hosting topics.

  • looked promising but they will only allow advertising (even in sig or mentioning in posts) to paying sponsors, and sponsors have to give a registered company number to be considered. They clearly don’t care about freedom and have nothing in common with us. They also seem to want users to pay for other things too, like a domain auction, they want $7 for.
  • have their own system where companies donate bare metal servers and they make VPS for their users, so they are unlikely to allow competition. They may be worht checking out anyway in case there’s some other way.
  • looked promising and still did after reading most of the rules. Has a free hosting section too. Also has a free hosting section.
  • looks ok too. Also has a vps section. – [Edit] Not ok, wants 45 dollars a MONTH to have a url in your sig!
  • Post4vps has sponsors who donate a VPS so we can do that maybe. Need to read more on the site.
  • has vcoin, seems like we can use for ads, claims to be “the biggest”. Need to read more.
  • has offers and requests. seems to be little used recently though.
  • is worth a look.
  • LetsHostTalk seems ok at first glance, allows posting of offers.
  • looks promising too, need to check it out some more.
  • looks good too.

cpc seems better than cpm in this case.
