Spots Are Running Out

2 March 2005

TextDrive is a hosting company formed in 2004 by Dean Allen. Recently, TextDrive has been offering hosting accounts for life to a limited number of participants. This morning, Dean announced that there were only 33 spots remaining in this current offer.

For $399 you get the following:

  • 1GB of server space
  • 20GB of bandwidth per month
  • up to 15 top-level domains (with unlimited aliases)
  • unlimited email mailboxes and aliases
  • shell access

Details and a way to sign up are here.

* * * UPDATE * * * They sold out. Whether 100, 200 or 500 customers bought this deal, TextDrive has broken the code when it comes to raising the capital required for capital improvements and expansion. Operating revenues come from those who choose to pay for their services as they use it. It’s quite the ingenious technique for financing.
