Current CI HOST customers who transfer their domains from CI HOST to NETHOLLYWOOD before July 31, 2000, will receive 60 days free Web Hosting with NETHOLLYWOOD. The 60 days will automatically start the first full calendar month after the 30 day money back guarantee period is completed. (No hosting fees will be charged for September & October, 2000.) There is no setup fee and the first month is automatically prorated. Web sites are created automatically upon registration.
This promotion originated as a result of individual and class-action lawsuits in progress against CI HOST which may leave CI HOST hosted web sites homeless. We create a great needed group to contribute to the Internet community, (over 100,000 messages about web hosting in unrelated groups – how many messages were there for groups you’ve created?), set up a mailing list and the moderation scripts, put out some news posts to spread the word in *related* newsgroups (the “cross-posted” messages you refer to), and posted a friendly message here to inform users who are interested to request their ISP to add it. Everything done right and in good faith and there is always at least 1 jagoff who has to be a jagoff about it.
It’s people like you that make it a *bad* idea to discuss a proposed newsgroup before sending the control. group. Actually, if you read the posts in alt.webhosting, they mostly comprise of other web hosting companies’ ads. (None from NETHOLLYWOOD with the exception of this original message.) Apparently from all the responses to this message, any kind of host promotion is not welcome here, so point has been well taken and you will never see a commercial post from nethollywood.net in alt.www.webmaster again.
