Happy New Year Dragon Blogger fans!

To celebrate the new year we start off with our best and biggest web hosting package giveaway so far.  One lucky blogger, web site owner or startup will win a full 1 year Linux VPS Webhosting package from NQHost.

For those who don’t know, a VPS is a Virtual Private Server which is a set amount of CPU/RAM/Disk Space that is separate off of a physical server (like a VM) that is dedicated to your own website(s).  This isn’t a shared hosting, so you have these resources that are specifically dedicated to your web instance and you can typically run much larger sites with more throughput and faster response times with a VPS hosted site than with a shared hosted site.


With the NQHost VPS Giveaway you are getting the following:

  • Choose Your Datacenter Location

Do you want your web server hosted in a U.S. Datacenter or one in Germany or Moscow?  You choose which datacenter you want your VPS hosted in based on the major geographic location of your target audience.

  • 30GB Storage

30GB of Storage Space on the VPS instance which should be plenty for more than 1 weblog.

  • 512MB of RAM

This should be enough for a few smaller blog sites that aren’t PHP plugin heavy, you also get burst support if occasional bursts are needed.

  • Unmetered Bandwidth

There is no bandwidth cap, your site has unlimited bandwidth.

  • Choice of Linux OS

You choose what operating system you want to run, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Debian, Fedora…etc.  Whichever flavor of Linux you are most familiar with you get to install and configure.  CentOS is the default.

  • Control Panel

ISPManager Lite is an included Free Control Panel Option, if you want CPanel which I recommend you will have to pay for this separately at $15 per month if you win the web hosting.  This is because CPanel has specific license costs and they are just passing the license cost to you the consumer.  CPanel isn’t essential but recommended due to the ease of which you can administrate your web instances and server.

Enter to Win 1 Year VPS Web Hosting from NQHost

This contest is open Internationally and anyone may enter, contest ends on January 31st 2013 and the winner will be chosen and notified within 24 hours.  Winner has 48 hours to respond and claim the prize or a new winner will be chosen.

  • Hmm. Perhaps a website for housekeeping or another idea for a business I have in mind. Great Giveaway! 🙂

  • I already have a Q&A site which I would like to move to a VPS, as my site is consuming lot of bandwidth. Thanks! Good Giveaway!

  • vhick

    Recipe site perhaps 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Good luck and thanks for entering, if you create a recipe site make sure you use microdata markup plugin so your articles show up on Google recipes which filter based on microdata. I can help provide you more details on which plugin and how to use it if you win and set it up.

  • Hi Done all the steps i host my own website to check that how it competes with the other VPS.

  • What level of traffic can this handle?

  • Cassandra Gordon

    I would love to host a website about contests believe it or not! 🙂

  • let hope if i win one…..

  • Would prefer Cloud Hosting but VPS is not bad too, should be able to handle a handful of traffic.

    • Cloud hosting can be very expensive, at least for dedicated cloud hosting. When I was looking into it for DragonBlogger, the cheapest I could find is like $100 per month reliably.

  • Gilbert Arqueza

    i want to host a Business and Finance website..

  • Most of the bloggers use shared hosting for their website. But VPS Hosting is best suggested for bloggers with huge reader base

  • I would start another blog. Most likely would be focused on something technology related 🙂

  • tenocation

    I would love to host my site http://tenocation.com on VPS.

  • Octavio López

    A tech blog mostly, maybe some college stuff, BSD, Linux, Mac, Games, hope a god open source project 🙂

  • Hi Justin – If I win, I’ll use it for my blog. 🙂

  • Hi Justin, if I win i will use it for my Artist website and shop.

  • Rodney M
