I've been wanting to start a monthly newsletter for quite sometime, so I hope to accomplish that with this post.
I'll be syndicating throughout our email lists, blog, and announcements section to ensure all of our current customers get the opportunity to read as well as potential new customers.
July is typically the slowest month for the hosting industry as people are more concerned about taking their vacations vs. setting up their web hosting. I completely understand this as the last thing I want to do before taking some time off is working on migrating my data to a new server.
With that said, we did see a nice amount of growth in July, especially compared to this time last year. I credit much of this to our Summer Sizzler promotion we're running on all of our Shared, Reseller, and VPS hosting packages.
Our VPS hosting packages have never been this discounted as our Hero 2GB VPS is $29.86 per month (paid annually) and includes 30GB of SSD Raid 10 Storage and 2GB of RAM. A great deal for those wanting their first VPS!
Speaking of our VPS hosting packages, we announced at the end of June our all new platform. Simply put, you can purchase any of our Virtual Private Servers and then automatically scale them on demand as needed. Any amount you paid we be credited towards the purchase of your new server.
For example, if you purchase a Hero 2GB VPS and then need more RAM/Disk later, you can easily upgrade to the Hero 4GB without having to migrate your data.
We also spent a lot of time this month releasing our new domain registration and management system. This includes our Instant Domain Search, Whois Hero ID Protection, as well as our Premium DNS management and Email Forwarding.
To help "kick off" this update, we're offering $9.98/first year .com registrations with the coupon code summerdotcom. This includes free DNS management, privacy protection, and email forwarding. First come first serve, coupon limited!
Increased Video Tutorials
If you're not subscribed to our YouTube channel, I highly recommend doing so. We've been doubling down on our video tutorials each week to ensure we cover some of the most frequently asked questions.
We don't just want to offer the best web hosting online; we also want to provide you with the best web hosting education. We strongly feel by educating our customers, we'll create a much better hosting experience for us all.
If there aren't videos that help answer your questions, please make sure to email me what you'd like to see and I'll do my best to get them online in a timely manner.
Updated Name Hero Reviews
Last month we integrated with Shopper Approved to help display our reviews in an orderly fashion. If you receive an email from them, we certainly appreciate the five stars and nice comments as it helps us to grow, re-investing in our infrastructure and support team.
We also updated our Support Reviews section of our website for the month of July where we screenshot what our customers are saying in the ticket desk so we can be fully transparent on the customer service we offer. We strive for 10/10 customer satisfaction!
Coming This Fall
As we race towards the fall, our team is working hard on the launch of our Cloud Dedicated Servers. Just like our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to instantly deploy these servers on-top of our high-speed cloud but will enjoy the power of a full dedicated processor.
We hope to have these live sometime next month, but please stay tuned to our blog and announcements for details as we get them together!
Finally, I want to thank you all for being part of Name Hero! I personally love learning about each and everyone of your businesses and am extremely excited that you've chosen to partner with us.
I'm dedicated to growing Name Hero to the world's most trusted, reliable, and scalable cloud web host. "Selling out" isn't in my vocabulary nor my near future. I'm 32 years old and have at least 40 good years ahead :).
To YOUR success, enjoy the rest of your summer!
