Maximum Benefit From Exabytes’ Trade-in Promotion

Exabytes is currently offering a “trade-in your hosting” promotion. All you need is to show them proof of purchase of your current web hosting package. They will extend your web hosting plan with them for the same length of time when you purchase 1 year of hosting plan with them. For example, if you have 6 months left of your current web hosting plan, they will host your website for 1 year and 6 months.

Please take note that the maximum they will extend your hosting is 12 months. Therefore, your hosting plan will be extended a maximum of 12 months even though you have more than 12 months remaining with your current hosting.

This promotion ends 5th November 2007.

How to optimize your “profit” from this promotion?

Their cheapest EBiz 1 hosting plan is at RM199 per year. It is quite a good package where you can host up to 10 + 1 domains. You get 10GB of space and 50GB data transfer.

To maximize your “profit”, simply sign up with a cheap hosting for 12 months. There are some hosting packages out there that cost around RM10-20 per year. Then, use the receipt to claim back 12 months extension from Exabytes. That way, you pay RM199 + RM10 (for example) for 2 years of hosting with Exabytes. That is less than RM9 per month.


This “hack” or tip is not verified. I have no idea if it works. If you are interested in this offer by Exabytes and want to get the maximum benefit out of it, please send a ticket to Exabytes’ customer support to verify before purchase. I shall not be held responsible for anything you do. 😛

    Haha. Well, please confirm with their customer support before buying the package. From my understanding it should work but I can never confirm it myself.
