My suggestion: more ads
Posted 24 August 2011 - 07:46 PM
I'm sure many users know this already, HelioHost has a problems with the servers going down too often or the user sites loading up too slowly.
I suggests HelioHost put more ads on the forums, its main page, and the user control panel. That way, more money can be earned. Some of that money can then be used to upgrade the servers or whatever else is needed to make this site even better.

Actually, we already have advertisements in all of these places.
- Forums: If you look right at the top underneath the HelioNet above the Intentional Grammar Warning we have some Google AdSense ads.
- Main page: On the home page we advertise our server colocation providers next to the HelioHost logo at the top and a Google AdSense ad on the sidebar of each page not forgetting an AdSense ad in between each paragraph on detail pages.
- Control Panel: When logged into the control panel, there is a Google AdSense ad underneath the cPanel logo at the top of the page.

Also is it possible to make banners for Heliohost, so people could place them on their site to advertise for heliohost.

Use buysellads.com ... You could really make a profit
Also use in post ads ...
Like in between two posts their be an ad. If you need any help ... I'm always here
Also try using intext adverts like infolinks
You could also make a toolbar from conduit.com to increase income Perhaps give 50 Mb extra for downloaders
I'm sure no one will object to extra ads if they mean more uptime

The more money we make the more money we have to spend buying new servers, etc and setting all that stuff up takes a lot of time and energy from djbob. I know in the past heliohost encouraged it's users to host ads to help generate revenue for the hosting, but since this system started turning a profit that all faded away into history. Plus the more servers and hardware we get the more problems that could happen and the more things that could break. It's always a good idea in a business or a non-profit organization not to grow faster than you can maintain. Some companies grow faster than they can maintain and then end up crashing harder than they can prevent.
Plus, am I the only one that thinks an overabundance of ads are really tacky?
