We're leading the industry with this .asia promotion to help our customers beat the competition for the best domain names
Chicago, Illinois (Vocus) February 7, 2008
Hostway Corporation, the global Web hosting leader, launched two .asia promotions to give its customers an edge in securing the .asia domain names they really want. The best names are expected to go fast once the land rush registration for this highly anticipated domain name opens on February 20.
"We're leading the industry with this .asia promotion to help our customers beat the competition for the best domain names," said Robert Birkner, general manager of Hostway Canada. "With 3% cash back on winning auctions and a $10 rebate, the more domain names you register, the more you save."
3% Cash Back
Hostway customers who preregister .asia domain names that go to auction under the sunrise or land rush periods are eligible to receive 3% cash back if their bid wins the auction. With this offer, Hostway's domain name customers can confidently raise their bids against the competition. This offer applies only to bids with a minimum payout of $30 under the cash back incentive, which equates to a $1,000 bid.
Hostway will extend this deal to all new .asia registrations and those who meet all of the qualifications, regardless of whether they preregistered prior to or following the launch of this promotion.
From now until February 19, anyone who preregisters under the land rush registration period for a .asia domain name will receive a $10 rebate when the name is successfully registered. The regular annual registration price is $24.95 per year with a two year minimum registration. So customers who take advantage of this special offer get the first year of registration for only $14.95.
The .asia top-level domain (TLD) name was approved by ICANN as the first regional TLD. The Asia/Pacific region reaches from Turkey all the way to Japan and is home to 60% of the world's population. A .asia domain name signals a presence in this fast-growing region of the global economy.
With nearly 10 years experience registering domain names, Hostway offers no-risk preregistration for .asia domain names. Customers are only charged the registration fee when the name is successfully registered.
In addition, Hostway [cut prices for the .com and .net TLDs from now until the end of February. All new registrations, transfers and renewals of these highly popular extensions cost just $7.45/year, down from $7.95. Customers can renew or register for up to 10 years to lock in this low price.
