HelioHost is going to upgrade our servers, and we need your help!
- For every $5 you donate we will increase your storage by 1000 MB to a maximum of 5000 MB.
- For every $5 you donate we will give you one month of inactivity immunity so you don't have to remember to log in to cPanel to keep your account active.
- The largest donation will win a beast of a VPS for six months with 16 GB memory, 8 cpus, 300 GB hard drive space, unlimited bandwidth, a dedicated IPv4 address, and your choice of operating system. That's a $318 value!
2020 has been a rough year for everyone, and HelioHost has been no exception. Our projected income for the rest of the year leaves us $1653 short of breaking even, but we don't want to just give up and go out of business. HelioHost has survived for 15 years where thousands of other free hosting providers have come and gone because of donors just like you. Every donation no matter how big or small helps. If you believe in our mission to provide free website hosting for students, small businesses, and everyone else now is your chance to make a difference.
Not only that, but we've got a lot of exciting upgrades planned for the near future so we can provide even better performance on all of our servers. We've been listening to our users, and plan to use the money from this fundraiser for the following:
Johnny is slow. We've identified the main bottleneck is Johnny's hard drives. We're going to buy new drives that will provide better performance, and allow the server to support even more free accounts.
Ricky is slow. This server hasn't had an upgrade in over 3 years. We plan to rebuild him on faster and newer hardware. We will also upgrade all the software to the latest versions.
Our internet is slow. Some of the money from this fundraiser will go to upgrading our network hardware and internet connection to be up to 10 times faster. This will allow websites to load faster, and downloads to be lightning fast from all of our servers and VPS. This will also increase uptime for all servers by mitigating the effects of ddos attacks.
Our VPS will get a speed boost too. We will be buying new drives for our VPS customers which could increase the data transfer rate by up to 22,000%. In the meantime we will be giving 1 GB memory for free to any VPS purchase while this fundraiser is active.
At HelioHost we believe that the darkest days are behind us, and we want to be there for our users in their time of need. While many businesses have seen declining traffic, we've actually seen a sizable increase in traffic. A lot of people can't afford hosting right now, and they're turning to us for help. Not everyone is in a position to donate right now, and we totally get that, but if you can spare even just a few dollars we will put it to great use to provide exceptional service to everyone who can't pay right now.
