I get regular emails from hosting providers offering web hosting services in return for sponsorship. Whilst I really do appreciate the offers the answer is no, always. I guess this post is being created so I can direct any future offers to it 🙂
Ultimately, any offers come with conditions. Either a request to place a banner for that provider on this site or a limit of time that the service will be provided.
For me, I want to be in complete control of the services used to provide hosting. If I am beholden to a service provider it gives them a level of control I am not comfortable with.
Again, I am grateful that providers want to offer sponsorship but it is not something I would ever want to pursue.
