Domain registrar, based in the UK, 123-reg, has debuted a new plan offering one year of free Pipex web hosting, for all customers that transfer domain names.
In addition to 57 pound value web hosting, customers will receive 80 pounds of free advertising vouchers from MSN and Google. As part of the new deal, 123-reg is also giving customers free images and discount from iStockphoto, a 5 pound Firebox voucher, 30-days of DVD rental from LoveFilm, 30-days of tunes from Napster, and a free online T-shirt store worth 40 pounds from Spreadshirt.com.
Customers moving over to 123-reg receive the Starter Pro hosting package, which offers 500Mb of web space, 5000Mb of data transfer per month, 35 POP3 mailboxes, unlimited email forwarding and webmail for additional email access. It’s perfect for individuals such as hobbyists, bloggers or small businesses and provides great tools such as CGI, online file-sharing manager, ftp access and Webalizer web statistics to keep webmasters updated with their site’s performance.
Mark Beyer, Sales and Marketing Director at 123-reg explained, ”Hundreds of thousands of people own a domain name, but many lie dormant or are just used to forward emails to their webmail account. We’re changing all this by giving migrating customers the tools to make the most of their website address to create their own website for fun or business. As well as a year’s free web hosting worth 57 pounds, we’re giving away 80 pounds of advertising vouchers to enable them to really shout about their website.”
