Last month, we completely changed where we host GraphicDesignBlender.com. We left our previous host, where Millo had been hosted for more than 5 years, and made the switch to Squidix.
And today, to celebrate a seamless transition (thanks, guys!), Millo and Squidix are giving away a whole slew of one-year hosting plans completely free.
You can use the plan for yourself or pass the savings on to a client who needs web hosting.
More details on how the contest is going to work below. But first, I have to brag on Squidix for just a minute.

Have you ever been fed up with hosting companies?
I had been with our other host for 7+ years. But every time I had a question or needed something fixed, everything was handled the same way:
I had to fill out a customer service ticket and…just…wait.
Can you imagine what that felt like on days when my site was completely down? Or when my email wasn’t working? Or when the servers were running incredibly slow?
I was losing time. I was losing money. And I was irritating readers.
Now, I have a web host who actually answers the phone
Since switching to Squidix, it’s been like night and day.
At my old host, I had to pay extra to get a customer service rep on the phone. Crazy.
Now, Squidix is always ready to take my call, answer my questions, and handle technical problems.
And unlike some customer service reps who just don’t understand that you’re not a technological wizard, Squidix talks you through the technical pieces without making you feel dumb. It’s a huge difference for me.
If you’re like me and you’ve been thinking of switching to a more reliable hosting service, one that cares about your site’s health as much as you do, then you should switch to Squidix.
Not to mention, thanks to Squidix, I’m saving about 7% of my projected business expenses this year. Hosting can get really expensive as your site grows so having some free (or inexpensive) hosting never hurts.*
How to win a free year of hosting (for you or your clients)
Sam at Squidix has been incredibly generous and is willing to give away as many free hosting plans as we possibly can in the next 5 days.
In fact, we have absolutely NO LIMIT on how many people can win. The number of winners will be based entirely on how many people enter to win.
Here’s how it will work:
One in every five entrees will win a full year of hosting. You can enter to win in any/all of the following ways:
1. Leave a comment on this post telling us what you would do with a free year of web hosting.
3. Subscribe to our email newsletter and prove you’re an active subscriber by opening Saturday’s and/or Monday’s email. (All subscribers who open are automatically entered to win.)
If Squidix had their way, they’d give away hundreds of accounts in the next five days. Seriously. You have a really great chance at winning this. So take a shot. We hope you win.
More details about the free year of hosting
In case you’re curious about the free year of hosting. Here’s what you get for a full year:
- 10GB Pure SSD Storage
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- cPanel and Softaculous
- Free migration if on CPanel (I didn’t even notice they moved my site)
- Plan would renew at $120/year (only $13 more than you’d pay for bluehost/dreamhost/godaddy, and much better experience)
*In full disclosure, Squidix is hosting Millo now completely free. But I only offer 100% completely honest reviews of software and services. I’m not being paid to endorse them.
Also, if you have a sizable web site (100K/month in traffic) and would like to work out a sponsorship where Squidix hosts your site for free, contact them. They’ll hook you up with lifetime free traffic if you qualify.
